Thought I'd join in on the convo.

I will be making a Lolita Black Mage for Anime Crossroads in December. And right now I'm finishing up Ruby from IX for Youmacon this weekend. <3

Soooo antsy to start the armor and cloak work for Rosa (that's going to be a pain to dye and paint) but I have to wait until after AnimeUSA because I have to make stuff to sell in the AA.

So, it looks like I'm putting together a Black Mage group for Anime Crossroads.
I'm going to be doing Heavy Metal Black Mage, my friend Sarah is going to be doing Lolita Blackmage (she's the girl from the red mage photos as well), and I've got two others friends who I'm trying to rope into doing Black Mages as well.
Is anyone else going to Crossroads, and interested in joining our awesome army?

I'm thinking I'm going to try my hand at a Terra cosplay since I have an old, albeit tangled, teal wig that would go nice for her. But that's won't be 'til sometime next year, maybe Akon or a little earlier. I'm stuck with Aerith til then!

@ Sayu3: I already said so before, but great photo. Looking forward to the lolita version!

@ kaligoddess: I have had my fair share of dyeing projects and I dread it every time. I wish you lots of luck!! Don't drop your project in the dye bath like I did. :P

@ MetalArtisan: Looking forward to seeing your next project!! Since I have no idea where Anime Crossroads is, I guess I am not going, but have fun!!

@ Zaiten: Yays! More Terra cosplays! I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Are you thinking of going with the old school design or the Dissidia one??


Cosplay Update: I finally got my wigs for Edgar and Sabin in the mail (maybe I already said that... I can't remember), and so this weekend I hope to get started on the both of them! I also designed a new sword for the updated Edgar and I hope that my bf and I get the chance to start on that soon as well. Hopefully I will have pictures soon!!

I do have some pictures of my fall shoot for Terra where I am wearing my new wig!!

I'm going to do the alternate outfit 1 from Dissidia, I'm thinking, just because the wig I have is so vibrant. Since it's so close to her regular one I may end up going all the way and eventually doing both.

But besides from Terra, I'm not sure who else.. I've tossed around Celes' Sprite version, Rosa, Rydia.. but I don't know.. I'm sure one day I'll end up doing everything!

@ Zaiten: Well I am just glad to see another green haired Terra, that's my favorite. It would be awesome to see you do the other characters you mentioned as well! Make sure you post progress pictures when you get there!

There's just something about the color, isn't there? It's just such a nice color, it's one of my personal favorites. I tend to love the cool colors.

When I get there I certainly will! I even made a tumblr for the sole purpose of being able to put up lots of in progress pictures and not have to spam threads or my photos elsewhere. Plus that thing really keeps me motivated by seeing the pictures of everything. Like right now I know I have to finish my lunch and get back to my sewing room. One of my Fire Emblem cosplays is being pinned together and fitted right now. =)

There is!! I was pretty bummed when Dissidia picked blonde for her main hair color... She's an Esper, it should be odd.

That's great! I look forward to seeing progress! And you sound like me. I am always multitasking and working on cosplays whenever I can find the time. I usually go home and work on my lunch as well. Which Fire Emblem character are you working on?

It just doesn't look right, does it? Oh well, glad they did so well with all of their alternate outfits.

I'm currently working on Marth, Soren, and Micaiah. And each one is in different stages! It's kind of funny. For Marth I'm working on his armor and props first. For Micaiah it's her dress. And for Soren.. it's actually his shoes! Go figure. But it does keep things interesting.

@ Zaiten: No it doesn't!! SE has enough blondes... couldn't she just keep her green hair?? I do agree though, at least she has an alternate outfit. That's an awesome lineup of Fire Emblem characters. Marth was always one of my favorites. It's funny but between all the characters you almost have a whole outfit from what you are working on. I am sure it wouldn't match very well though. :P Let me know when you have some progress pictures up, I would love to see them!

... let's just say it took me 4 tries to dye Yuna's Festival Goer kimono and yes, one of them ended with the entire kimono in the dye.

I'm currently looking up poly dyes because I'm not using real silk (like I can afford that). The last one I used was a beast to work with.

@ Kaligoddess: I totally believe it... I hate dyeing projects. As for poly dyes, I would look into Dharma Trading, they have a wide selection of dyes and they prices are pretty good too in my opinion. Good luck to you!

Dyeing.. that's something I can say I haven't tried yet. I think that's what's kept me from doing a Yuna cosplay. Weird isn't it? All that painting or even learning to embroider doesn't scare me.. but dyeing those sleeves? Do not want!
