Got my wigs from ebay today! I was a little worried they might not fit because they're from Korea and I have a fat head, but they work out fine. They're super soft, too.~

That is an enormous amount of rhinestones. o: You need to wear this to the coscom lunch meet, it is imperative that I see this awesomeness, pleasepleaseplease.

Hopefully it's some nice stuff. o: If you can find something you like for a clearance price, it doesn't get much better than that~

That's really close to the convention center. o: I think it's only like 2 or 3 blocks away, if I remember right. Very nice~

I really need to get back to work on my Dorothy cosplay. I sort of put it aside to make some lolita skirts. Now those are done. I probably would have worked on it last week if I hadn't gotten sick.

On Saturday I was looking through my boxes of stuff trying to find a fabric that I need to work on a cosplay. Not only did I find it, but I found a bunch of black fabric leftover from my first (horrible) attempt at Tux!Ten. Yay! This is going to end up saving me money on a couple of cosplays. Yay for finding fabric!

Times when I hate my rabid perfectionism coupled with my indecisive tendencies: I could buy $5/yd rose-patterned brocade that's pretty inaccurate (at least in my eyes) for Therese, or I could spend over four times that on a silk jacquard that feels more accurate (if still not right) ... and have to dye it, because the black is out of stock. Blergh. Why can't one clearly be more accurate? Failing that, why can't there be better shots of that material? Trying to look at jacquards in stage lights sucks. Half the time I'm convinced it is floral and the roses might be okay, and half the time I think it's far more busy than that ...

I just got charged £70 for my sewing machine to be oiled and cleaned. I was also given a pack of needles because apparently, my current one was blunt.

I don't even know what to say, I'm just shocked and upset.

My Mukuro wig just arrived, yay! I already have the contacts, so maybe I could do a make up/contacts/wig mini test shoot? Hmm..

My coscom wig just shipped~!

I'm really excited to see how it looks and feels. o: I hope the color is beautiful in person.



In other news, Student Council President Erza is a go! My friend is doing OVA2 School Lucy, and we're improvising a OVA2 School Gildarts (he got held back for missing class so often) for her boyfriend. We bought our ties and socks last night, and so today I'm going to try and find a usable pattern for Erza's jacket. And maybe find shoes that will work for both Erza and Yin.

And fabric. .-. What kind of fabric do you make school uniform jackets out of?

I'll try! c: Though I haven't decided which days I'll be doing certain cosplays yet, actually. I know I'll have to be Chococat on whatever day my Sanrio group wears their cosplays, and I'll most likely be debuting Tsubasa!Sakura that weekend as well. But even if I don't get to wear Miku the day of the lunch meet, we can still hang out for a bit or something when I do wear it. :3


Eeeeeeee yay, my Snowy shipped! :'D The polo shirt and sweater for Tintin have been ordered, bid's been placed on a great trenchcoat, and the weekend after next I'll get fabric to make the pants and hopefully find some shoes at Goodwill or something, and finding long black socks shouldn't be too hard. That just leaves me with narrowing down my decision on which wig to buy, which hopefully my friend will be helping me with since I'm not normally one to crossplay and thus I'm not too familiar with guy hair. >3>;;; Ah, and the binder. My friend needs to send me the link to that good seller she found.

Otakon room has been booked! Ride is being debated, but we're staying at a hotel that's not very close to the con, so I'm not sure if carpooling for such an epic trip is a good idea...yeah we haven't fully figured that out.

Also, COSPLAY Y U TAKE ALL MY MONEY?
My girlfriend showed me the GORGEOUS dreamer designs from Homestuck and I am seriously considering dropping a few current cosplays to just work on Bro's. It's so beautiful. SO PERFECT. Oh my gooooooood, but there is no cheap way to make that. There is NO cheap way to go about this. I mean look at this thing: http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ly...xi1uo1_500.png

Fair enough. : D We haven't decided what day the meet will be on as well. I'm not sure what I'll be wearing what day either. The rest of my Fairy Tail group are doing their Fairy Tail costumes as their only costumes for the weekend, but I have 3 outfits/costumes to choose between, so I have to weigh matching them or wearing something new. I might just go to the con in the morning dressed one way and then change costumes when we go back to my apartment for dinner and spend the rest of the night in a different costume.

Also, my friend will be so excited to see Sakura cosplay. That's her favorite character of all time.

Apparently the internet heard my complaining about my wig not shipping that I posted here last night! When I woke up this morning I had an email saying it shipped. Hope that it gets here soon!
