I'm making my first ever handmade costume, too. My niece wants to be Rapunzel from Tangled for Halloween (she'll be 4 in September), so I took her with me yesterday to buy the pattern at Jo-Anns. After she showed the pattern to her mom, she didn't want me to take the pattern home, lol. It wasn't until I showed her that there was paper inside the package, not a costume, that she finally gave in. xD
That is the cutest thing! ;3;

OHMYGODKEIJIDOITDOITDOIT.

Sorry, had to have a fangasm there. As for manliness if you're worried, a little bit of makeup and a good job binding do wonders.

Fffaw, thanks. A little worried about pulling off an outfit like that, but I don't think it'll happen for a few cons, which gives me time to consider how to make it/what to do about being self-conscious. I'm waaaaay more confident about being a guy for some reason.


EDIT: WHOOPS, totally didn't mean to double post there. Sorry guys!

Lol! I'd run around a convention as Keiji Maeda and hit on girls, talk about love, drink sake, and relax/sleep on the floor x D

i have a question. How many cosplay outfits would you buy contact lenses for. This is more for the general response by everyone on this forum. If you were to buy the custom contact lenses which type would you want/need?

I buy them more for enlargement more then anything else, (circle lenses) I feel like they can really bring your makeup to the next level and help you achieve the "doll-like" appearance. Example: My Anya makeup.

My family kept saying they weren't noticeable, but then at the convention I got a good dozen comments on my eyes, so it's something I'd do again. But as of right now, all my other costumes require blue or green eyes, so I just keep my own.

It seems like cosplay groups that are 21+ are hard to come by...

Sitting around my house dressed as Pompadour because HOMYGOSH IT'S DONE. Finished the bracelets, finished the wig accessories, everything is DOOOOOOOOONE and it's 45 days until AWA. NEW RECORD! YEAH! (This calls for capslock. I am so excited right now, you have no idea.)

Of course it's only 17 days until Dragon*Con, and 3 until I move in to school and would have to stop working anyway, but frankly, even that 3 is a record. XD Unfortunately I'm home alone so there's no one to take pictures. Boo.

Although I did take the dress for a walk down my driveway, to see how it moved and if I needed to make any adjustments, and someone drove by. French court lady in Southern suburbia! Someone call the cops! XD

Took measurements for my Risai armour over the weekend and did math. Current estimate: 165 plates in various sizes, which means 640 holes to punch in 10oz leather. I think my wrist is going to go curl up and die in a corner preemptively. But OMG, if the craft-foam mockups are any indication of the final product, it will TOTALLY be worth it. *wriggles excitedly*

... now to get it done in a month. <_<;;;;;;;

I still have yet to work with mainly craft foam, I usually use leather, lol. I guess I'm scared to use craft foam.

Yay I'm getting my Leopard Print Duct tape for Lui!

Now I just have to hope my mom will let me cover a leather vest in it...

Spent part of yesterday afternoon sorting leftover/spare fabric into different bins by color, and learned something:

Anytime in the near future that I need black, white, or blue fabric? Don't go to the fabric store. Look in the appropriate bin first.

(Of course, I do need to get more white spandex for the costume I started over the weekend, but I definitely don't need to get black. I found the leftovers from a catsuit I made many years ago, and that'll be more than enough for the black parts of this one, and maybe even the costume I want to do after that too...)
