Good news: Providing Fedex isn't lying, my hakama should be in tomorrow... I AM SKEPTICAL. I haven't had issues regarding deliveries with FedEx, just that they don't always come on the originally scheduled day. So maybe I will have everything by next week.

Bad news: I just realized my run crew work will begin next Wednesday... And this just... depresses me, so much. Because everything will be coming in but I probably won't be able to work on Kenshin at all. Worst of all, I don't even get paid for this, but if I don't do it, failing grade for the class.

I am not happy.

Just figured out my volleyball tournament starts at three. That means I could attend Katsu Friday night and Saturday until noon, so that I would have enough time to get ready for the tournament. Now to talk to the parents. This will be interesting.
Same here, lol. Awww (>v<) Thank you very much! I'll try my hardest to be soX33

I'm far too scared to thread or pluck, I've considered waxing but terrified of that thought and it'd just grow back. I wish I had been born with thin eyebrows.
It's really weird, but i've been shaving and using trimming scissors for about 5 years and it really does well for me. I also dye them, which helps makes eyebrow color so much easier.

Oh wonderful, I finally have time to work on cosplay but I'm to tired and a bit sick today. (Stupid random pouring down rain right when I'm running to class....) But yay my Sinbad fabric has shipped~

I've tried that before it didn't work for me.

I really hope I get the last weekends of February off so that I can have time to sit down and work on my Rise and Hope cosplays with my friend who will be coming to visit. I don't want to be cosplayless for Anime Expo this year! Especially now since I'm going be in charge of the Final Fantasy gathering!

Are you able to work on anything while in bed? Take something small and work on it among the mounds of blankets? Unless sitting up is bad for you (room spinning, etc.)
Also, are you looking for ways to look flattering in photos? (Hope you don't mind my butting in) you could play with expressions in the mirror?

How do you become in charge of those things?


Related to cosplay & myself: waiting on a binder to come in the mail.

My Morgiana is over today, and the fabric has been purchased, but... How am I expected to do make the dress without a pattern? Might have to call today a loss too. GAH.

I'm starting to get a little worried. Cosplay isn't here yet. I'm hoping that it's here by next week if not, I'm going to be a little bit pissed. I payed a lot of money for this thing.

I wonder how long it takes Standard Shipping from Texas to Illinois usually?

Fedex did not disappoint me this time; my hakama came in today~ I was a little worried at first because I ordered a size smaller than recommended, but I ended up being spot on. When I wear it should fall right to wear I need it... I'm just a little hesitant about undoing all the basting that's currently keeping the pleats in proper shape. The hakama's a poly-cotton blend, and it's actually quite stiff, so I'm wondering if I should reinforce the pleats. Someone who reviewed it said it loses its pleats easily, but he actually used it for its intended purposes in kendo... I mean, it certainly couldn't hurt to reinforce them, but if I don't really need to I'm not going to.

Yay you got the hakama!

Well, my very first hakama are kendo hakama and I've used them in kendo practice regularly for some years ago (1-2,5 years.. dunno) and while the pleats aren't as prominent as on new hakama you can still obviously tell there's pleats. So I would say you don't need to reinforce them if you just take proper care of your hakama.. aka fold them after wearing.

Yes, I'm playing paparazzi with it right now. XD

Ah, that's good to know, and I'll be sure to fold it religiously when not wearing it. Being the anal person I am, if I don't fold anything kimono related right, I throw a huge hissy fit - which is why my mumsy ain't allowed to touch my kimono. *u* Now if only I'd show the same dedication to my everyday wear...

It's all good if you just fold it and I'm pretty sure you will.. XD
I'm kinda the same, I care more about my wafuku items than my everyday wear lol.
