I am so angry about this DAMN SANDAL! I was backstitching the heal seam and I went too narrow so now the sandal doesn't fit on my foot. This would be fine it it was on the machine cause it would barely take much time to fix up.. but when you are hand sewing, and you aren't very fast THIS IS FREAKING HELL!
I am seriously gonna end up burning it!

Enjoyed seeing so many Coscommers at Sakura Con! c: It was a fun weekend. But gosh, I'm exhausted. And now I shall await photos from the three shoots I had. Yay!

Oh, and my Miku got on NicoNico. xD I wonder if people ever post the livestream clips, since I'd love to see the on-screen comments since I probably missed some while talking to the hosts. haha

Can't say I'm too happy with Sakura Con's panel department, though. :I Bah, oh well.

Starcloud: The calendar doesn't work for anybody. They're a little slow updating it.

Alright thanks. Thought maybe I was missing something. Usually I get invited to cosplay events from friends that are going but I recently moved to south Florida. Until the calendar is working what would be the best way to find event near me? I know I can search online I'm just hopnig someone to point me in the right direction.

One magnet sewn in place, dress in the wash, one more hook and eye, two more snaps, one more magnet, and gathering this netting and my costume will be complete! I really wish Joann's would put bolt muslin on sale again/ I really need to do mockups to be sure everything will fit right -sad face is sad-

I just buy bedsheets from thrift shops for my mockup fabric. Muslin is fuckin' expensive compared to a full sheet set for $5.

Made the bag part for my Rin sword bag. It took way longer than it should have though.

Cereza(my machine) was all, "You want to sew brocade with me? I don't think so!"

After about a half an hour of struggling I said screw it and I ended up sewing it by hand. Now all I need to do is make the straps and attach the snaps on and I will have my sword bag!

I'm still mourning my inability to go to Anime Boston this year.
In my opinion the masquerade there is the best that I've ever been to. I've stalked a few other cons online and seen NYAF (it's been two years though) and Otakon and AB definitely wins by a long shot. I am determined to go for, like, the rest of my life.

Thus concludes my break from pleating. Sigh...pleating.
At least I just bought another box of 500 pins. Because I realized I didn't have the right color thread, either. :/

Man, I was so gung-ho about getting something done today, and now that I'm finally settling down I am quickly running out of energy. This happens almost every week night. D: I'm trying to push myself to just do one small thing before going to bed. I figure this project will move along faster if I can at least do a little each night (if there is time to spare), rather than just waiting to work on the weekends. Hrrmmm

I think I'm getting a strong urge to create the FFVII summon, "Knights of the Round" for Anime boston 2013 in May... ... ...

13 months to make the 13 knights. Coincidence?

It was probably one of the best years I've ever been. <3 I was near, spoke to, shook hands with, and got things autographed by two of my own personal gods. I never thought I would ever get to meet these people in my life.

It was really great meeting you and your girlfriend. <3

Did you manage to get M10M's autographs at the signing on Sunday? The line was loooong. o: I got up to the front with Haunted and they were like "Whoooaaa O.O" when I got to the table.

And that, comrade in costumery, would be FRIGGIN' awesome. (I loved that Materia. Especially when you had someone else with the one that copied the last spell cast, and it turned into the 26 knights of the round table making the overkill long enough that you could take a coffee break)

Somehow the only way to present that on stage, however is something distinctly out of Monty Python in my mind, so best ignore that.
