I was just looking over the guest list at ACEN. First off, the narrator for the Hetalia dub will be there. Yay, another autograph on my Hetalia DVDs. (If I get through to her that is.) But what's really got me excited is the lolita guests. Maki & Asuka, the designers of Angelic Pretty, will be there. I may not own any of their work (I sure want some though) but seeing them is making me incredibly excited.

In other news, I started working on my hobby horse. Right now it's only a PVC pipe with a chicken wire frame in the basic shape of a horse's head.

I see a few people have posted about Sakura Con. So it was a smashing event?

ANYWAY! I am actually inspired to do some work on my sandals! And then tomorrow I may show everyone a pic of my progress, as well as forcing myself to work on the dragon tail.

I really hope I can finish everything before the con!

I fell asleep finishing pleating a section of netting while watching.......what was it? Oh, it was xxxHOLiC. Didn't wake up until 3. So I guess I'll get back to pleating now....or shower because I feel disgusting from yesterday.

Okay change of plans. My mom wants to go to Jo-Anns on Wednesday which is fine by me since it is bigger than Fabricland but then I will have less time to work on cosplay stuff. Well, I guess I should at least fix my Gakuko skirt today so those darn pleats will stay down. I'm also seriously debating on whether I should embroider the design on the back of the top piece.

Although I've never done it before...

It doesn't look too bad and what I need to do is simple but still. Is it simple enough to do? Or should I do a ton of practice before actually putting it on cosplay?

One step forward, six steps back. >_< The crossguard on my sword keeps getting hairline cracks no matter how I finish it. SO FRUSTRATED. Trying a resin overlay tonight if weather permits and hoping that helps.

Midweek. Midweek my current work hell should be done and I can get back to working on things. >______<

I forgot how much I hate velvet. Fuzzballs EVERYWHERRRRE.
...Yah. spent eight hours making a cushiony interior of a custom banjo case for a collapsible banjo, out of velvet, foam rubber, and then webbing and velcro for straps. Worked out nicely and I got paid for it, but EURGH. So much fuzzy crap all over me.

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!
