The thing is incredible, I use it as a base for my eyeshadow, and on my waterline.
A base for your eyeshadow, too? :O
So you use that instead of like an eyeshadow primer then?

I usually use foundation over my eyelids first to get rid of all the icky veins, so I guess that is my 'base'. But I use the jumbo eye pencil if I want colors to show up really nicely....I'd say I use it as a base too, it's just like my second base xD

Oh gosh that's confusing...

Then I feel smart for understanding that. That's actually a really good idea! I should try that sometime. And I did need a new white eyeliner...mine always are absolutely terrible. D:<

Ended up saying screw it and spray painted in my basement. I love the metalic color I got for Rin's sword sheath. It's so shiny and blue. *_*. The blade is done too, I just need to throw a layer of modge podge over it and then details! For Minako's naginata I only finished spray painting one side of the staff part before I had to go out to Michael's and hang out with friends. The good news is I got everything else I needed for Rin's sword and got some paint pens so I can draw the details on Gakuko's fan.

And tomorrow-err today is a trip to Jo-Anns which means Gakuko will finally be done soon.

Coming up with so many ways to tackle the hugeee hands Strength from Black Rock Shooter carries. I've been sketching, drawing, and constantly searching Google for tons of reference pics. @__@

You know what I always wondered? Why does she wear pink bows on her pink hair?
Yeah it's a different shade of pink but...It just seems really clashy to me.
Also, I like the petticoat under your Madoka - super fluffy is the best fluffy~ Most people I've seen have their petticoat kind of...'blah' looking.

Just commissioned my 'jacket/ shirt thing' for Ed.
I wonder what that's really called

Working on this spur of a moment Jane Crocker God Tier costume some more. Not looking forward to making this skirt pattern. It's the last thing I really have to do, but gosh. I just hate making up patterns.

If I remember correctly, her mom gives her one of the hair bows as a present at the start of the anime, so I think they have "sentimental value" or whatnot.
As for why the character designers made them that colour, I'm not so sure. They could have easily been yellow or something that contrasts it a bit more.


As for what's on my mind about cosplay, it's why is paper mache so time consuming? I spent six hours on these discs tonight, but most of that time was just waiting for one side to dry, so I could flip it over and add a layer to the other! Bah, I'll let it dry overnight and work on them some more in the morning.

Damn, sometimes I hate to live in Finland, there is a total snowstorm going on here and basically all trains are delayed, and of course this had to be just exactly the day when I'm going to the town of a con I'm going by train to this weekend... Luckily the con is tomorrow, it could have been worse, it could have been the day of the con, I usually travel to the con town the same day as the con starts, but not this time~

Yes! Made some progress last night on my cosplay, I pinned four parts to the fabric and preparing to cut it. Unfortunately, on closer inspection, I had fubar'ed my rotary blade and need a new one which I will have to buy tomorrow. At least I'll get to pinning more.

I need to get the jacket out of the way ASAP because I'll need the remainder of the three to four months for development on my wing structs. The changes are almost minimal but I'm introducing a lot of new variables where I didn't have to worry about in the now photoshoot wing set.

I think they wanted to make them a color that would also match her magical girl outfit, so a color like yellow probably wouldn't have worked. Although I personally don't know why they didn't use red, which would've matched both the bow on her school uniform and the red in her magical girl outfit. /shrug

Cosplay related: I have a package waiting for me! I think it's more rhinestones. :'D Perfect timing too, since I need to work on my cosplay this weekend. c:

I wonder if I should go ahead and order my corset this weekend while I have the money and drive to start working on Arliquinn. I just hate dropping so much dough on one thing, but if it's worth it....then...well, it's worth it -headdesk-
