Grr, I'm kinda stuck right now. I currently have 3 costumes I'm working on, Weiss, Eva, and Black Cat, and I can't really work on any of them right now.

Weiss is for my bf, and I can't work on that unless he's here, which isn't a lot, and right now he's visiting his parents, so he won't be back til late Monday night.

Eva I'm technically working on, but it's all waiting on liquid stitch to dry, so I only get to 'work on it' for 5 minutes at a time, then I have to wait 2 hours for the ls to be dry so I can move onto the next part.

Black Cat is pretty much done except for the top, and I can't work on that til I get a new bra so I can shape the skin tight cat suit top accordingly.

So as of right now, and for the next 2+ days, I have NOTHING I can work on, on any of these costumes ... however, I do have the material to start on my Nami costume, so I could work on that, but if I don't manage to finish it in the next couple of days, then I'm suddenly going to have 4 costumes to work on, which for me, is twice the amount I usually work on at once, and I'm scared I'll start feeling too overwhelmed.

So what do I do?

I've been fighting a sinus infection all week, which means I haven't gotten anything done.

Well, almost nothing. I started assembling the hat for my Pinkie Pie Pirate costume... which is essentially me going "eh, I'll wing it. How hard can it be to make a pirate hat?"

I managed to make the hat, vaguely based off her Gala dress hat... however, the amount of flounce, floof, and general stuff I have for this is going to be somewhat epic. I've got cotton candy floof trim, tiny gemstones, ribbons, blue bias tape that matches the bodice, and miniature Venitian lace in blue. Then, to top it off, there shall be a spray of pink on pink feathers coming from one of the turned up sides.

Also, I have just found that clothes pins (the old fashioned wood ones) work great for holding trim to felt while the tacky glue dries...

Pore strips hurt like a BITCH to pull off, but it wasn't until yesterday when I realized how visible blackheads are under body paint. -sigh- The things we do for accuracy.

I finished straightening my Luthien from Arda today. It might need a good run under hot water to get it how I want it but overall I'm really happy with it.

I was desperately hoping that my Stocking cosplay would get here yesterday so I could wear it for the date auction since our theme was Superheros, that didn't happen. So I'll have to save it for another day.

Now I wait until Monday. I feel slightly productive.

I've itching to do a casual Summer!Kenny cosplay, but I fear that I'll get judged since my plans for it are rather plain and, well, casual.
And since it's a summer version, that I'll be sneered at for having him wear short sleeves without fur.
Now I'm too nervous and unsure about even doing it.
----------
My Ritsuka wig is taking forever to send out and I just really want it now, and I have no patience, but I don't even think they sent it out. It's not supposed to get here til the end of the month, but I want it now. //obnoxious whine.

I am so excited to experiment with making Sailor Fuku bust armor from Sparkle Pipsi's tutorial tomorrow. *u* If all goes well and I like the results, I can use one leotard for Super and S Saturn, since the sleeves attach to the bust armor part. I think I'm only concerned about sewing lycra to fleece (I don't think I've ever sewn such two different fabrics together before in terms of stretchiness and thickness), getting the right smooth shape around the edges, and whether snaps may need to be involved to prevent upwards slippage since I have such a big bust.

Looking up the wonders of craft foam armor, I'm still scratching my head as to why I've never considered giving it a try before for S Saturn's shoulder petals. It would be unbelievably simple to try, too, all I need to do is cut the petals out of foam and slip them into lycra pockets like socks. Pretty much all I want is structure with some flexibility without catastrophic structure-compromising creasing.

Been searching for a wig for Isanami and I never realized how hard it is to find a wig in her hair color but without the extra hair piece in the back she has in her regular outfit. Why is your hair color so weird Isanami!? >_<

I know I've blathered about this before, but it's really hit me recently (again) how none of my friends (with the exception of one who lives the next state up and who I rarely, if ever, get to see) really enjoy cosplaying. Yeah, they like going to conventions. Yeah, they enjoy seeing the cool costumes and, yeah, they accept and support my addiction. But none of them have any desire to make, create, or really be a part of it. Taber will join in but he's really not into making the costumes, and my other friends would rather buy than try to do it themselves, if they join in at all.

People who have cosplay groups and friends are so lucky and they don't even realize.
