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.

It's been a long time since I've been as inspired as I am now.
It feels good.

Working on styling Anthy Himemiya's wig, and JESUS MOTHER OF GOD THE CURLS. I ended up following a tutorial the Airily site miraculously had on the specific character (the odds), but eeeegghff... All these bobby pins. When I went to put it for the first view/critique 40% of it came undone with just my delicate shifting and wiggling into it. There has to be a more efficient way of holding these damn ringlets in place.

Morgiana wig is here! *opens the package and puts on wig* It....is....so....long....

The wig is wayyyy too long for Morgiana. The back part is supposed to only be to my shoulders and well, it's down to my midback I do have a friend here that's good at cutting wigs so I asked her to help me out. If she can't, I might just ask my mom when I'm at home or attempt to cut it myself... It shouldn't be that bad...right? Just need to be careful and cut slowly...

About my War pony shirt. Would it look better as a sleeveless or leave it as it is?

Awarded the Cosplay.com Congressional Medal of Troll Smashing - because you, with copious amounts of sarcasm and sense, had viciously battled the troll known as Proud Asian since the beginnings of the thread created on Thursday, June 14th, 2012. While the troll known as Proud may not be truly smashed, many other trolls would surely have been felled by your wit!

I just keep finding excuses not to style my wigs yet.. at first it was lack of hair spray and glue. Then I got a deal for buy one get one free for got2b and that excuse no longer worked. Now it's the scissors I have, I feel like their just not right for the job so I'm going to get a pair from Sally's tomorrow.

I wonder what my excuse to myself tomorrow will be, haha! I'm just so afraid I'll ruin my wigs.
