Went to Joanns and the thrift store nearby. I ended up buying fabric for Pascal's scarf and a very pretty pink jacquard fabric for the bottom tier of Ophelia's skirt. They also had a nice red one but I'm going to hold off on that until I look around online since I need to find a pretty checkered-like one online too.

At the thrift store, I ended up coming back empty handed. There was a sweatshirt that was the right color for Kyoko but it was a size 2L. I could have altered it but I think I want to look for something my size first. Plus, since I wear sweatshirts normally, I could always buy a new one and just wear it whenever.

Yesterday I went shopping to look for a headband, diamond shaped rhinestones, fabric for my Toshiya kimono, a specific brand of paint, and opaque black stockings.


I came home with enormous fist-sized pompoms, two headbands, and black knee socks. I... need to get better at shopping. Or something. None of the stores I went to had anything I needed. D: Even Joanns didn't have the fabric I was after! It's just Kona Cotton!

The pompoms are sooo cute and fluffy! I am totally making some Anthonies to carry around as Homura.

And after spending the day shopping in more or less full Homura gear, I've ascertained that the costume is pretty comfortable. I've also figured out a way to stop the collar from throttling me so I don't have to try and alter it to be larger! Which is good, because actually the collar was super well made and I'm not sure I could put it back together properly if I took it apart. o:

That would be awesome! I want to see pics when you finish them! ^_^

Bought the braid bun for Saber from Arda. Although the sale did not really help since I was buying a small thing, at least I got a dollar off that I could spend elsewhere.

Debating if my nephew's toy water gun would work for a Haru(Tsuritama) cosplay. It's similar to the one he has in the anime, but Idk if I like the thickness of the plastic. I might look for something more transparent and see if if I can fins anything better.

Baaaaw, these pompoms are so cuddly. xD Here's a picture for size reference~

A dollar saved now is a dollar for something you'll need tomorrow. o: It's cosplay, you'll totally need it.

Going to finish the bias tape on my Kohaku vest tonight, and I can order my Duke and Faust wigs from Arda when my dad gets home

I just hope this wig will actually be able to work for Faust, since the last one I bought did not, and I REALLY don't feel like buying a third short blonde wig in an attempt at Faust's hair.

Woah! They are huge! And so FLUFFYYYYYY! XD And true. Ever dollar counts in cosplay!

I ended up spending some time looking for necklaces with those circle rings to find one I could use for Saber. I found this one that I could tear apart and make a new necklace out of that. I don't know if the circles are too thin and they were warp when I tear the rings off. I'm a bit annoyed that when I actually need a necklace like this, they seemed to all disappear from the stores near me.

Discovered I can wriggle in and out of my Kohaku vest without unbuttoning it. This is good, I don't have to cut the overlapping trim I did.

It's easier to get into than out of though, but I think it'll be easier when I have binding on XD

Sorry for the double post, but this needed to be separate from my previous post.

I think the universe is telling me not to cosplay Faust VIII. I went to order my wig from Arda during their sale. I had to wait until my dad got home and had some time to relax, and when we went on the website, the wig I was going to get for Faust had sold out already, and they just restocked this week DX DX DX

Between this and the fact that I bought a wig for Faust before that just proved un-spikeable...It's really disheartening. Especially since I've been reading a ton of Shaman King lately to psych myself up for getting my Faust wig I know it seems silly to be this upset over an out-of-stock wig (or so my dad says) but I'm really upset.

Ahh D: I hate when life tries to send signals like that q-q Don't worry, if it's really meant to be, something will fall into place! (This sounds like I'm giving you relationship advice...well, basically, cosplay is one of the cruelest lovers you can have...)

On my end, I am excited. I didn't realize how easily I can cosplay from Persona 3 now that I have a fake gun to mold into an Evoker. Though I still need to ask gf about the cosplays we were going to do together...since I'm not sure if I can buy her Lizzie wig for her or not. I hope I can somehow, that's a couple cosplay I've always (secretly) wanted to do. And then Garry would be nice, once I find someone to make the coat for me, though I dunno if she's still doing Ib or not. Then there's still Aoki, and now I'm really fond of IA's design...
TOO MANY COSPLAYS, SO LITTLE EVERYTHING QnQ
