...well....that semi awkward moment when you realize you already have a few things for a crossplay you'd been trying not to think about. I guess this is what happens when I forget to put things away. When this would happen...I'm not sure yet...but...I already have an almost perfect photoshoot location in mind too.
But....it will happen.
Save me.

And this particular crossplay I can't even use height adding insoles... So now I am having an internal debate with myself...
You shouldn't let height slow you down, I'm short as well. I'm an inch off from being legally classified as a 'little person' and really there aren't many characters my height and the ones that are, are well, children.
Nobody is going to give you a hard time for being taller or shorter than the character~

Yeah, kinda same thing for me. XD But I do like Samurott, Zebstrika, Braviary and Sawsbuck too lol. But yeah, most Pokémon in Gen 5 I'm just "meh" about. But the legendaries are cool, especially Reshiram. I already have a gijinka design for year X when I do it. XD

Meh, ran out of beads for my bead work, it'll be Friday before I can get out to buy some more.
I've been sort of losing the inspiration to cosplay my main cosplay, but after watching some people talk about him and looking at some pictures has giving me a bit more want. But now it's making me wish I had one of his main outfits though.

Well, I finally made my crossplay decision. Imma do it. I wanted to do either Tomoe or Mizuki from Kamisama Hajimemashita and I was so undecided until I got the brilliant idea of wandering around as Tomoe with a butterfly net. ... I don't know why the prospect of carrying around a butterfly net is so appealing to me, but I DO WHAT I WANT and I want to carry around a butterfly net. XD

I was originally setting out to make a "realistic" version of a cosplay, i.e using texturized, rough materials such as coarse denim in place of the light blue colors and etc. But lately my brain just KEEPS ADDING STUFF (so far have extra belt bucklet, faux fur and lots of extra seams and buttons), and it's moving further and further away from looking anything like the character I started out with. Contrary to my usual cosplay opinions, I can live with that.

My friend told me my Morgiana wig is the exact color of Simba's mane. Which is now making me think of a Simba gijinka...which is also making me think of the problem that I don't crossplay and I can't make him female because then he won't have a mane!

Being a cosplayer is so hard! XD

I've been writing this sort of kimono guide for cosplayers for hours and now it's finally finished! I felt like sharing what I know to those who want to cosplay kimono wearing characters but are unsure about many things regarding it. I got this idea from the countless times I've helped people out here on coscom and dA; I felt like doing a sort of "guideline collection" for others with gathered information about the basic things to keep in mind.

Hope it will be helpful to some people.

After buying a bow for Miranda, ears for Zelda, and a camera for the con, my bank is now crying and asking my why did you get into this hobby.

Kamisama Kiss <3 ~ I'll be doing a Tomoe cosplay :3 Mizuki would be adorable to do. I'm excited to do them BUT again, seeing the money drop in my bank makes me cry ;o;

I have to admit, I honestly can't stand the English name for it. Yes, it's shoujo... but the English name is waaaaay too girly for me.

Oh and do I know how you feel... Tis the price we play for our beloved, yet very expensive hobby. ;A; But it's so worth it. X3

Dammit, Jellyfish Princess. I had resolved to not getting another costume after these two but then I saw a preview for you so now I want to try to put together a Kuranosuke cosplay.
Even though I know I'm utterly horrible for his character I just love the series so much..;-; (and I would have an excuse to either get a wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs or one from Arda. Hmmm)

Sailor Moon needs to stop tempting me with cosplay. I have six characters planned for the next few years. Six!

This is really handy~ It answered a lot of my questions! Also very timely because I've been thinking about cosplaying Shigure to Anime USA on Sunday.
