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!

True; still need the schedule before we can do that. xD; I might need to switch costumes in the hotel room occasionally as well, since I always enjoy wearing my Cardcaptor Sakura cosplay and it'd be nice if I could wear her as well. I'd probably rather give some preference to new cosplays, though.

Yay! Sakura's one of my all-time favorites as well. More so in Cardcaptor Sakura than in Tsubasa, but either way I just love her (and all of her beautiful outfits) to death. <3


Just booked the hotel room for Fanime, awww yeah!

Decided to be paranoid and talk to my dermatologist about what type of body paint to use for my NYCC cosplay, she said to be careful and do a patch test, but otherwise she was fine with going all-out for Karolina, yay! She also that if something does go wrong to come in and she'll 'mop up the mess.'

I do, pretty much love that woman.

Also, the patterns for my commissions got here, even though I didn't get an e-mail saying they'd shipped. Either way, time to contact my comissioner and get everything else I need!

*wanders over to the Marketplace to browse for blond wigs*

One costume change per day is enough for me. I can't imagine how some people have the planning and dedication to wear 10+ costumes over the course of a weekend. o: I couldn't do it.

I'm pretty sure my friend also prefers Cardcaptor over Tsubasa. o: I'll introduce you to her if I get the chance. She's trying to narrow down which of the dresses she wants to make. First. Apparently she wants to make most of her outfits eventually. xD;

I officially have a new goal in life: become a tiny Jude Law by MegaCon next year.

In other news, totally resigned to my fate as the lone Matt/Hige at whatever other cons I attend this year. If I make the costumes awesome enough, I won't need a group, right? 8I

Work today has been slow... I've spent half the day doing little edits for the financial aid department, and the other half researching jock straps and packing.

And woooo, Katsucon is finally so close that the day we leave for the con is on the 10-day forecast on weather.com! Of course, this is Michigan, so the forecast for that day is no doubt completely wrong. The forecast for this afternoon that was posted this morning was wrong. This is Michigan.

My new wig is at my college! The bad news is I need to wait until 6 to pick it up! *grumbles* And the exciting thing is that MangaNext is in about two weeks. I'm hoping my Sion is completely done with her cosplay and figured out how to make the red markings. I really should bother her soon about it to make sure she gets it done.

You have to be crazy to change multiple times in one day. Which is what I do at every convention. "otz
My friend cosplaying Stocking with me is nuts, though. She has, like, four costume changes planned for Saturday at Sakura-Con. I'm just hoping for two, at the most. xD

Alright, I helped my friend figure out a costume for katsucon. Now I can sit back, relax, and wait for my wig to come.

Oh gosh, I'd never be able to handle that. xD; I'm pretty content with just one costume per day, unless there's some important reason that I just have to change into another. It's just kind of a hassle, and usually I end up having so much fun in the costume I'm currently wearing that I'm kind of sad when I have to put it away, haha.

Sure, that sounds fun. c: And oh gosh I know a friend of a friend who wants to make every single one of Sakura's outfits from the Cardcaptor series. x'D She's already made two or three, I think.
