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.

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.

....yeah....those crossplay feelings are still there. This could be the first time I actually figure out how to sew properly.

In other news....after seeing cosplayers in the local newspaper...my only thought is why do I never get invited to anything.....which is probably not my fault but it feels like it.

Which makes me wonder....do I really suck that bad?

Which crossplay is this? o.o

Hey, I know the feeling. It honestly isn't; the only people that that sort of thing happens to are either the really outstanding crafters, really pretty girls, or just the people who put themselves at the center of attention.

And no, in my opinion, you don't suck at all. You're a wonderful cosplayer.

On my own front..There's a guy a grade below me at my school who is going to cosplay Kirito and wants to take pictures with me as Yui AND Natsume with my Ririchiyo.
Can I say that I love this guy a lot, cause there's finally a local cosplayer who likes the series I do and will cosplay with me. And he's actually a really attractive male. Yeah. Add on another girl in our school cosplaying Vinyl Scratch and I really love all these people.
