oAo Yeah I'd feel better too... On the other hand, what I wouldn't do to have 10k to spend on cosplay. *dreams happily*

Hmm, unexpectedly productive day today! Made my bow for Ministrife!Porrim and replaced the black buttons on my skirt for her for golden ones. Now I just need to find green stockings and finish the belt buckle.

And wow, Hussie, you just introduced an outfit for a character I love I can make mostly with stuff I alredy have!
First basic!-and Ministrife!Porrim, and now Roxy's new outfith from the ACT 6 ACT 4 flash animation. Love and must make, but at the same time...gah my money! ;;>_<;;

So I was doing my sewing work at my lab in the costume shop at my university. The costume technician then says to me, "Hey, we're having a clothes sale tomorrow, everything's in the girl's dressing room. Go in and see if you can find something that inspires you. If you do, take it, it's yours." So I went and looked around, not thinking I'd find anything because I am of small stature and most of our actors... well, are not.

I ended up finding a blue plaid jumper that, if you can ignore the plaid, will work so well for a Haru (the Cat Returns) cosplay! A few loose stitches on it, but it fits and it's nothing I can't fix. And it was free. Awwwesoooome~

I'm beginning to think contacts are just outside the realm of possibility for me. Well, colored ones, at least. Even just regular ones will be very expensive and that's just so I can see without my glasses. Crap baskets.

So I'm on the planning committee for the holiday party, and the theme is Candyland. The HR Generalist is ordering a cape and crown for me to embellish, and we're going to dress the General Manager up as King Kandy.

And because I can't pass up the opportunity, I'm making Queen Frostine's dress, crown, and staff~

Just finished the mockup for the dress today. Took 5 hours to get the fit and shape right. Had to take in about 5 inches from the pattern; I thought I'd put in two extra panels in the bodice, but it was really just that big. D:

Why are you not here yet wig? T_T I was so looking forward to running around while wearing Morgiana. Stupid college and not doing this mail. *grumbles* Also with everyone on my fb posting cosplay stuff, I really want to do something for cosplay but I have to wait until next week. >_< Also need to go to Michaels to buy some paints for various things as well as a dowel for Saber's short sword thing.

Yeah, I spend as much as/more per year on ballet than I do cosplay. More money for lessons per month than I put away for cons, and shoes, tights and leotards are fucking expensive.

I just got back my jacket for my Elizabeth cosplay and it looks so good! My boyfriend's aunt did a magnificent job.

I've been using Avengers as a motivator for all the handsewing I'm doing on my Sabriel cosplay, but it's sort of backfiring. I really, *really* want to cosplay Agent Hill now. ;_;

Talked to my friend...and Zangoose is adding to my list. A Zangoose gijinka. A yakuza style Zangoose. It's going to be epic. ^_^ Have most of it designed out except for the claws. I'm trying to figure out what the white coat that yakuzas wear is called so I can find a pattern but I'm not finding anything so far.

I am officially broke. After I buy my Sailor Mercury tiara and my Asuna wig this week and my Hobbit movie ticket I will be penny-less :P

On a happier note~ I'm going to have my very first photoshoot in December with my friends who invited me to be in their sailor scout group! And I need to finish my niece's Sailor Chibi Moon cosplay and my nephew's Tuxedo Mask cosplay so they can be a part of the photoshoot too!
