Went to a first year con this past weekend, and had a great time! There was a cosplay contest, and while the judges were deciding on a winner, they allowed me and some friends to Gangnam Style on stage. I had asked them earlier about it, and they were totally cool with it ^.^ I'm sooooo proud of how in sync me and my friends were. Probably my most memorable convention moment from my 5 years of going to cons!

All of this Sailor Moon talk is making me want to go thrifting to find a dress for my gb!Tuxedo Mask. Grrrr! I don't have the time or money to work on another cosplay, Tuxedo Mask! Just be patient!

Does anyone else ever lose motivation for their work if things aren't going well for them in their personal or social life?

I've had so many people who are supposed to be my friends in and around the hobby just act very inconsiderate and for someone with clinical anxiety, sometimes it's very overwhelming.

Doing a headcount starting from 2010 and going up til today, I've had 2 people deliberately drop me from groups and replace me, 1 photographer whom I trusted turn into a sour and bitchy bully, another photographer choose to ignore and overlook me entirely while doing photos of the rest of the group I was with (all of whom noticed but didn't do or say anything about it til much later after the fact), 1 person act like a sociopath towards me and deliberately isolate and exclude me while trying to get closer to my boyfriend, a supposedly very close friend write off the entire hobby as 'drama-mongers' (despite being a huge one herself) and stop talking to me, and now as of last night, I've had another very close friend act like she wanted me to come to a con, and then backpedal on the invitation when she found other people to room with.

At this point, I don't differentiate between intentional and unintentional when people screw me over. It's still someone screwing me over, and if they're going to be inconsiderate, I don't see why I should have to be.

It's just... getting too be too much for me at once and I'm tired and frustrated and now, I'm having a hard time finding motivation for my projects.

Finally got my vacuum pieces in the mail for Luigi's Poltergust. I may be able to finish it tonight if I don't get lazy.

Ugh, debating whether or not I should cosplay Maggie Lacivi. I have her whole outfit already, and all I'd need is a wig and some green make up...

Started working on Boo's top pattern. Still need a skirt pattern plus more fabric (possibly) and zippers...
Need to wash my fleece and lay the pieces down to see how much more fabric I have to buy. Probably make a mock mitten, for practice and fit.
I think my bobbin tension is a little screwy, too
Did order crystals for the ball and bought rhinestones for Mokona. Still have to figure out Boo's mask, though. Gotta get moving!

I need to hurry up and get inspired to do my cosplays for April. LOL That reminds me too to look up at the "how to draw manga" artbook my sister has to look up a reference for the school bag since I'm making one from scratch. LOL

This entire costume is just a full bag of different emotions, I hate the boot covers cuz they refuse to cooperate with me, I love the skirt because it's coming along so nicely, and I'm sad about the top cuz I'm having to slightly alter the design cuz of my boobs ... maybe it's a good thing my bf is never around when I'm working on costumes, cuz with my crazy ass mood swings due to this costume, I have a feeling I would scare him off XDD

Yup. Looking into LEDs for Luigi's Poltergust. Because I just had to emulate the 3DS game stills.

It's gonna be so cool though.
