I am wondering that how can I make a good cosplay only by myself.

Prince Maximilian (Valkyria Chronicles) is done except for the shoes and the laurel leaf crown. I maaaaaaaay add more armor, but I need to try everything on for the final fitting and see if I'm happy with the look now or if I can improve.

Meanwhile, Soubi and Seimei (Loveless) are full speed ahead. We're heading out this weekend to pick up the last of the materials. Working on drawing out the Beloved tattoos tonight so that I can size them before we print them out on tattoo paper.

Finally ordered my wig for Peta! Hopefully the color will look as good IRL as it does on my computer, it took me months to find a greenish-blonde wig.

Sooo much to do this week. My mom's absolute sweetheart of a boyfriend went to a fabricland in another town and picked me up a dressform, so now my weekend can be spent getting my Quorra armour fitted... I need to do a ton of work on the arm/glove pieces (probably about five hours), make a test version of a plushie I plan to make (since I've never made it before, best make sure I can actually do it right on cheap stuff), get a start on Quorra's boots, annnnd possibly also make my Twilight Sparkle hoof pieces. And so far I only have Friday off, MAYBE Saturday and no idea about Sunday.

Between doing my homework I'm researching embroidery and the different fabrics I need to order online; suiting and spandex in particular I'm thinking I'll just use fabric.com because of the free shipping after 30$. The suiting is for Seymour's coat and spandex is for various things.

I'm almost done watching all of the episodes of Magic Knight Rayearth all over again and I'm even more excited to finish the outfits I have planned/working on for Hikaru! AND I believe I have just found my Umi and Fuu! Now the only thing that would make this better if we could have a Lantis, Ferio and Ascot (and maybe even a Clef xD)

Finished the initial sketch for Soubi's Beloved scar. It came out very well with minimum trouble...which make me suspicious. Haha. Tomorrow I should be able to add a touch of color to make it look like less of a tattoo and more like a scar.

I didn't get to sketching out Seimei's mark...bleh. But that should be much easier anyway.

Well, my Derpy is coming along... partly because I plan on not making ANYTHING for her. Except maybe the wings. I wanted to splurge on Yaya's pagasus wings, but... I dunno if I'll be able to. I already need a new wig for Derpy, plus the cost of my other accessories... It might just be cheaper to go with the felt wing route. We'll see.

It also just suddenly occured to me I can go pony for the whole weekend at Animate! Miami because I'm doing Rarity partly on Friday, and Rarity as my main on Saturday. Derpy will be Friday. Which means Sunday... I can go as my personal ponysona. Because I just remember that my ponysona happens to be a white unicorn as well. ... God I'm freaking dumb to just remember that now. >.> Bahaha, yay for my first themed cosplay weekend. XD

So, I'll be going to Anime LA since I won't have another opportunity to do so in the next 5 years cause of work obligations.

I really won't be debuting any new cosplays unless my cosplay partner already has plans. Otherwise, I'll be focused on outputting a costume for New Years. It'll be OC but I'll be using the base as a starting point for my VN02 Kaito.

I would say the same thing too but I'm kinda excited about what I'm going to get for Christmas! Hopefully something cosplay related!

Hee. Mine is first weekend of January. It's a favorite con, plus it's moving to a new location (no more massive overcrowding and no more salmon-colored walls!), and I'm debuting a dream cosplay.

I'm sitting here researching/shopping for cosplay materials when it occurs to me oh yeah, maybe I should buy some Christmas gifts...
