What is on my mind now? Well, what I'm going to be making the Heathcliff armor and shield out of. I already know I'll be making his sword out of wood, but the Shield and Armor will be tough.

I keep needing to kick myself in the head for nitpicking myself too much.

For some odd reason, possibly a change in medication, my anxiety and obsessive compulsive tendencies have been worse this past year. So with both come needless nitpicks at aspects of my cosplays. S Saturn is improving drastically and in the progress left I haven't done anything irreversible to it, but I still really need to be careful to not end up taking apart something that turned out perfectly good and potentially ruin it.

Current list of S Saturn nitpicks that I'm working on: Stuff the shoulder petals with craft foam (the petals have been safely taken apart, just need to cut out craft foam and stuff), make the final bust armor now that I've got the pattern tweaked and a fresh batch of lycra, redraft collar pattern and attach via snaps on facing, and make a new choker because I suddenly found the way I made it half-assed.

Man, there would really be nothing stopping me from immediately moving onto Super Saturn after this, either. XD Pretty much all I'd need to do anyway is make a collar with a single white stripe, make another bust armor with the Super sleeves, make another choker, make another pair of glove bands (hilariously the hardest part, since I have to sew it very painstakingly to avoid puckers), and make a long-tailed back bow. I really wish I could afford and be able to travel to more than one con a year.

Every time I've finished one aspect of the uniform, something else pops up needing attention.
"Yay! I've finished with ((insert part))!...... Oh yeah, the sleeves need to be done." *headdesk.*

This is the school uniform that doesn't end.

I have too many cosplays I want to bring to Sakura-Con this year, and not enough time (or conflicting time constraints) to wear them all! I'd love to appear in font of one of the voice actors from one of my favourite series (who was just confirmed to be there today) in my cosplay from that series, but it conflicts horribly with another cosplay(and event in that cosplay) I am going to be doing later >.< When you start getting into the 3 and 4 cosplay range at a con things get complicated, I'm so inexperienced and have rarely juggled this many >.<

Weather....why are you so cold today!? Yesterday it was warm enough to spray paint but today it is way too cold. Was so close to finally get Saber's sword done. >_<

After asking someone at GameFAQs and fiddling with the Playstation Vita screenshot feature, I'm finally able to make Persona-lized tarot cards of the Aeon and Hunger/Lust arcana from Persona 4 Golden.

I think...I'm going to push Jin and Hijikata to the side for now. I'll work on them during spring break. I need to finish Seymour, Slade, and Sinbad for Kon the most so yeah...

Though I'm too obsessed with Kuroko no Basuke... I ordered my Teiko jersey for Murasakibara. Also, I got a casual outfit for Murasakibara as well. >.>

Things are pretty set for the next couple cons and my next costume is still in its skeletal stages, but... I reeeaaaally wanna do something from Magi this year. Wondering if July is doable... I'd really like to do Ja'far since a.) I already have a wig that would work for him, b.) my hubby's interested in doing Sinbad now, and c.) I really like him. It's also been kicked around that I do Aladdin, since I'm so short. So... idk.

Last night I was thinking about all the female crushes I have. I came across Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy but the stage where she kills the other researcher. I was like, "That's it! One of my closet cosplays for next year!"

I'm already hunting for a medium to long length wig without bangs so that I can tease it and add ivy to it.

My friend will possibly be Tarlok from The Legend of Korra and I shall be doing Asami Sato for next year.

Stocking cosplay is nearly finished! I just need the sword!

Dyed my clip-in bangs and made my usamimi (aka Tepig's ears.) Once I get my new buttonhole foot, I'll be able to finish this thing.

I've officially exited the love stage with all this resin casting. The silicone is tearing at the drop of a hat, and I try to lubricate the inside of the mold and it adversly reacts with the resin. Like, the resin partially seperated so it didn't properly cure, and sucked the dye out of the mold. WTF.

*goes off for the second mold repair of the day*
