Several hours, 5 and a half episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh and one trip to Olive Garden later, my Duke Devlin cosplay is done and ready for Katsucon. Woohoo! 8D

Now to finish sewing Isaak's buttons

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.

Stitching all the diffusing vinyl onto Quorra is actuallygoing much quicker than I thought, but still, URGH. BORING. ANNOYING. WANT THIS DONE ALREADY.

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.

Oh that is pretty. *_* I wish it showed what the base wig looked like without the little ponytail thing. I can't tell if it is a clip on or just hair. 0_o

It's a clip. They advise you to comb a bit of hair back and then use that as a base for the ponytail clip to attach onto.

Finished Seimei's tail. Despite little experience dealing with fur, it came out quite nice!

I should really get back to Soubi's shirt. Ahhh, tired.

The item I ordered for my secret cosplay arrived. I also contacted the website saying that my item was late. They sent me an extra item for free. So now I have 2 items for my secret cosplay. But one of the items has a hole in it. So I'll have to buy another one when I get payed next.

I couldn't sew to save my life at school.. I've never even attempted to make armor.. but i'm determined to make my own cosplay.
The worst part is, I'm an incredibly picky perfectionist and will sulk like a brat if I don't like how it turns out first attempt.

WHY BRAIN, WHY
