Hmmm... so I have a question for folks.

If anyone's paid any attention to my random ramblings, you'll know I'm working on a pony cosplay. After putting the finishing touches on my Derpy wings, I got my ears and decided to pin them to my hat to see what they looked like. And it looked... odd. It's a newsboy cap, specifically this one. As you can see, it puffs out at the top as per the style, to put pony ears on it would look unnatural. I've already got Pegasus wings, popping out from the sleeve holes of my capelet/vest thing (it's hard to explain)... In this case would it be okay to go without the ears or should I pin them upright more by the joint between cap and visor, closer to where my natural ears would be?

I finally managed to make some more real progress on my Spirit!Zelda cosplay. I finished sketching the apron design and finished all but the painting on her armor piece. Take that cold bug that doesn't want me to work on cosplays!

Also, my little cosplay group finally has a complete Alice in Musicland cast!

I'd just try playing with the placement first. ^^

Well, that's how I know they look really weird on the cap. ^^; By the natural ears seems better, but I'm not sure if it's worth it to put them there or not... It all comes down to "Are pony ears necessary to make a pony cosplay?" I guess. :/ Especially since the way the hat fits on my head, my wig hair will move around so that my normal ears are visible - not that that really matters I suppose...

Wore my new cosplay boots all day today and they are super comfortable and don't hurt at all. I say they are convention ready!

So after my other friend mentioned that I should cosplay from Jackie Chan Adventures, I talked about it with another friend and he's down for it. He's willing to do Uncle from the show XD Still not sure I would go through with it and people may not recognize it, but it sure would be hilarious! Lol, I got the Asian thing down at least!

So... since usps hasn't updated the status of my packages, I'm starting to think they're putting it on a boat and not flying it to me. If they were flying it I would have been notified because it has to go thru the sort machine at the airport... So instead of getting my mail tomorrow, I won't get them for 3 more weeks. Which sucks majorly, it shouldn't take mail 3 weeks to get to me from California by boat but it does sometimes because the us postal service is old fashioned. *sigh* Can't do anything about it though.

Really kinda sad about it too and unmotivated to work on cosplay now that my wigs are going to take much longer then expected.

I can see why it would be really weird looking. I think see how it looks with ears in the "natural" position. I think it would be fine without ears(It's a gijinka right?). You have the wings which would be a huge indicator I think. ^_^

Does anyone know how to remove hot glue from wood? :/ The pommel is attached nicely to the hilt at the moment but there is glue that seeped out and it's bugging the heck out of me. If this wasn't a competition cosplay I would not be caring this much. >_<

Trim it down with a knife? That's usually what I do when I have excess hot glue beads. It's pretty soft and easy to cut into.

Ugh. I've talked myself into frogging and restarting my Seventh Doctor arm-warmer. I don't need it done until Dragon*Con, but it's still frustrating restarting something. Stupid pattern stupid needing to float the yarn. Grrrrr...

Apparently stressing over cosplay related things gives you anxiety related cosplay dreams, which aren't as pleasant as normal cosplay dreams are.
As someone who has never had the fortune of having a cosplay dream, I kind of envy you in a strange nerdy way. Even the anxiety-related ones must be interesting to wake up to.

The part on Hatori's wig is driving me crazy. It looks great on the wig head, but when I try it on I can't see. Bah.

More trimming, I guess! >.>
