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.

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 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! >.>

Aaaaaah, my wig is five hours upstate as of last night. I was hoping by some miracle it would come today, but I guess not. Sigh, I guess it'll be here on Wednesday then...

Well I guess I was productive today. I finished the suspenders for Pascal's shorts and now I need to make the pouches she has on it. Those pouches though. Ugh. I tried three times before deciding to call it quits for now. I was getting severely frustrated at the last try. Really have no idea what I'm doing wrong. *sigh* I'll try again tomorrow I guess.

Got a brand new sewing machine today! I saved up sooo long for it. I'm going to be practicing on it for the next few days. I'll try and upload pictures of it sometime. Now all I need is a wig, though I'm always too scared to ask for one. ;w; It's not very expensive so I don't see why mother wouldn't buy me one.

It will be 2013 in an hour :O

I'm once again seriously considering giving my Souji Seta/Yu Narukami wig a haircut. Having wig hair cover my eyes while skating is not fun.

Speaking of, the Annual Toronto Cosplay Skating Event last Saturday was a lot of fun. There were a lot of cosplayers there, ranging from Doctor Who, Persona, Vocaloid, Assassin's Creed, My Little Pony and Marvel Comics. There was this one really good Iron Man in the colors of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

No pics from me, but a funny little story. After an hour of skating, I posted on Facebook that I "just went skating and haven't fallen on my ass... yet." A couple of hours later, I fell on my ass and said Souji/Yu wig fell off. Ironically, it wasn't from skating but rather from standing still on the ice, talking to a Phoenix Wright cosplayer and an Izanagi cosplayer about the Persona series. All three of us were having issues standing on the ice and had to help each other out to keep steady. My fall came too suddenly to react.

Got Twlight Sparkle's skirt pieces cut out, the pleats pinned and pressed, and I'm hoping to get the pocket sewn, hem and side seam sewn, the pleats staystitched and the waistband pinned for tomorrow. Also still gotta sew my hoof-pieces including the elastic band/tops, finish a few handstitched things on Quorra, take in my blouse a bit, AND fix the waistband gap in a pair of my jeans. All before Wednesday afternoon. /flail

And it's not helped that I'm having a dizziness problem that's making it hard to sew OR get the exercise I pretty well got none of last week and need to catch up on (I THINK I'm getting a cold, maybe my ears are clogged, I dunno, but I felt like crap on Saturday because of it, was well enough to go to work and of course do no other sewing work yesterday and I woke up dizzy again today and it's still there but not debilitating).
