Also, why are you the one who has to design all the ponies for the group? D: No one has any ideas or input to give you? Seems kind of unfair. .-.

I will keep an eye on the Sakura-Con AA thread for you. o: I'm already stalking their entire forums, peeking in one a specific thread won't be hard.
Yeah, and pony art is pretty easy to make since the characters are so simple to draw, so I'm not too worried about prepping prints for Ponyville West. It's mostly just Sakura Con I'm anxious about. So much to do. xD;

And our group is still figuring out what we're doing, so both my Rarity and I have been each working on our own designs for each character in an attempt to create a more uniform look. And I'm incorporating the ideas they've already provided and some of them have already done concept sketches, so it's not all from scratch. Basically what we're trying to do is get a broad range of ideas going so we can decide on a final set of designs. So for example, I designed a Bard version of Pinkie Pie, and the Rarity in our group is working on a Gunner design for Pinkie. I'm designing Druid version Fluttershy, and she's doing Ranger Fluttershy. And most of the group has been tossing ideas around, so it's not that difficult for me to create my own interpretations of everything, and I want to take a shot at it, it's simply just time consuming.

Much appreciated. c: I already have my Washington tax number, so that's ready.

WHY MUST MY MOM BE SO WEIRD ABOUT BUYING FABRIC?

I think I actually impressed my mom with something cosplay related today. She was legit shocked when she found out that I made the camellia flowers and didn't buy them. Yes mom, I actually can make things, surprisingly. -_-

I also ended up sewing the flowers onto the dress and tried on the Camellia Gumi dress again. I'm not really sure how it ended up being semi-hard to breathe along with being a bit loose on the top at the same time. How in the world does that even happen?

And I discovered my long orange wig is actually a copper color(totally thought it was lighter than it actually was) which gave me an idea to do a Minako with long hair cosplay after being the Seal for three years interpretation something or other. Going to have to think more about that one.

Of course after watching the first episode of Kamisama Kiss I want to cosplay Nanami. Her personality is just awesome. Wish her hair wasn't that weird brown/black color thing.

You totally should! I just finished my Kurama cosplay, and the series needs more cosplay love.

"Dream Cosplay." Ya huh. I had a moment of that last night....litterally. I dreamt of a silver gown I was wearing, and it's killing me that I can't remember specific details about it. I remember flashes of the silhouette and the detailing on the sleeves which I spent half the day spacing out over at work, and still haven't figure out how one would sew them. But gods, it was such a pretty dress...the colour was that irridescent silver of moonlight.... or silk duponi....<3

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 after that, Jem's.

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