Oooh. I still remember a fabric I dreamed of. You know shot silk? In this case it was the colour effect of shot silk, in rich red and gold, but made with velvet. Oh god. SO pretty.

Oooh, that would be luxurious! Aye, I wish there was a place one could go and just be able to put in what fabric type, what colour and what pattern. Directly from one's brainwaves. 'You there! I want vintage satin. In the orange the colour of a October sunset. With...amber threading! 8 metres POST HASTE!" And out pops a sample for you to judge.

At school, I saw this freshman wearing a shirt with the Tsubasa wings on it and went to say hi (first freshman I interacted with of my own will this year! XD) and mentioned that I love cosplaying Sakura. She told me that I have the right body for it. I felt cool. But apparently she thought I was a sophomore..........oh well!
And then I had the idea of making a cute little white bag made of satin covered with chiffon and embroidering/beading the Tsubasa wings on it.
I really wanna make it. :B

And now i'm going to be dreaming of fabric tonight, although I'm totally cool with that. xD And I was thinking earlier and realized that wow, there are a TON of webcomics I want to cosplay from, too bad most webcomics are a bit obscure and, while obviously being recognized at a convention shouldn't be your only reason for cosplaying, considering most of my anime cosplays I do don't get recognized I'm not sure I want to make an outfit that no one is going to know at all.

I just thought of something amazing. I've been wanting to make the dress Rin wears in the song Adults Toy but I didn't really want to cosplay it so instead I can make it as a base for my Great Seal Minako idea. *_* Not really sure how to incorporate the Great Seal itself into the design though....or make it recognizable that I'm cosplaying Minako.

I haven't bought a new wig since... what, December?! I'd totally forgotten about wig excitement. C'moooon, ship my Garry wig already!

I need to find a commissioner to make Garry's coat soon enough as well, so I can cosplay him in February. I like to be prepared, after all.

Buying my Magnus wig this weekend.

And then I really have to get working on some of Link's clothes.

Got pictures of Marie up. ^_^ I'm surprised about how many people in my real-like friend circle actually liked it. Guess this shows I have a lot of persona liking friends than I thought I did. Lol.

I also threw another coat of modge podge on the Konohana Sakuya feathers. So hoping this will be enough...

Bought a lot of sewing patterns today due to the 5 for $5 sale and got a yard of blue fabric for lining my sora jacket for $2. I did good for today

After wanting one for a while, my mom and I are going to buy a sewing mannequin during the Columbus Day sales this week! So excited. Not to mention, I'll probably pick up some fabric for my next cosplay.

I went to my local Walmart the other day to discover that they now have fabric and a wide variety of patterns.

I nearly cried unmanly tears of joy in the aisle then and there. ;u;
