So my friend whose Kirito costume I'm making, we decided to make it out of this super durable white fabric we saw at Joanns. They had very little of it in the store we went to, so he decided to order it online. On the website, it turned out to have only like 3 yards in stock. My friend decided to wait until it came back in stock. And a couple days ago it did! And so he ordered all of the main fabric from the Joanns website. Today they apparently emailed him to say that surprise! it's actually out of stock.

Awesome.

So now we're planning on bussing around to all the different Joanns in the area, and buying out all that they have of this fabric.



In other news, I found this perfect white faux fur for Laxus' jacket trim. It's got this amazing 3 inch pile and it's soft and not curly and looks more like a rock star than a carpet.

Unfortunately, it's also $38/yard. Good thing we probably only need 1/2 a yard. .-.

- A new convention is coming up this Sunday. Probably gonna be a lot smaller than most cons I've been to, but that's to be expected.

- At said con, I'm hoping to buy a short dark brown bob wig for Kyo Kusanagi and a long dark brown wig for Philemon

- Need to make a stencil to make a cross patter on Kyo Kusanagi's sweatshirt

- Buy another plain white mask to redo Philemon's Persona 1 mask.

- Also really need to work on Igor' mask and read my tarot card book before May

- Finally, trying to figure out Souji Seta/Yu Narukami's winter casual outfit. The jacket and pants are fine but it's the zipper sweater that I'm confused about (namely, the stripes)

I really wished I had a car again to drive over to Joann to exchange my items and buy more stuff. Then, finish off my outfit. I also need to go to Home Depot for some tools and plywood.

I'm gathering a list of characters I really wanna cosplay and deciding based on if it's medium difficulty, since I'm getting close to finishing my current project.

Additionally, I'm really yearning for a cosplay group someday before Otakon. It seems fun to have a group picture together, and speaking of, I'm gonna have to practice on poses. >_<

It's a shame that so much work has gone into Krad but I can't fit him in any other convention. He'll just have to be backup.

Yay! Pictures?

Tried on Saber today with the wig. I don't like how I look in it at all. >_> The curses of being so over-critical about yourself. Not wearing her to a con is not an option due to the amount of hours I put into her but I just...don't like it. I'm going to see if I can put a zipper into the back of the top because the snaps idea, although it works, it doesn't look that good in the back to me.

EDIT: Well, good news, the zipper works great and I can actually breathe now! The bad news is getting it off is almost impossible without a second person helping me. Also I think I'm going to need to get some trim to put on the edges near the zipper cause one of the sides looks a bit...beaten up.

You should check out this thread. If you can't find the information you need already there, you can ask and plenty of people will help. It's a very useful thread for crossplayer.

Well glad to see it worked out! I dislike some of my cosplays on me too! LOL Adding things like a zipper does help a lot though! Which is why I would be reworking some of my old cospalys this weekend after I'm done with Cater. LOL

It looks great! Can't wait to see it done!

I really should be reworking some old cosplays but yeah, I get too distracted by new ones. XD

So I was looking through my pattern collection, I realized I have one that would work for the skirt part of Amnesia Heroine's dress. Dang it. I really want to make the dress now...
To make matters worse, the opening for Fate/Extra CCC came out and I want to pull together Heroine's blue blazer version too. >_> Calm yourself brain. Please. Until I'm done with Camellia Gumi and the other cosplays for this con season.

I'm making my friend's wig and beard from my leftover Princess Mononoke fur. Now I need to find a sweet patterned fabric to use for lining the inside~

Ugh, the snow was partially melted when I got home. Plus it's way to cold to take pictures outside!
