I ordered my Grell wig tonight ahhhh I'm so excited. Can time skip forward two weeks so school can be over and I can pet this lovely red mane. <3 But really. I am so freaking ready for this. I can FINALLY cosplay Grell with seemingly no bumps in the road so far and I WILL do it properly. I just hope my mom lets me get some Wonderflex before long. Right now she's basically going "IS THAT GOING TO KILL YOUR TEETH" because she trusts nothing I do in cosplay. I've tried to explain to her it'll be basically like the fake teeth people wear at Halloween with no trouble but she's not quite being supportive of it. Maybe soon though?
Also, I've just tried out these new wig-cutting scissors I got for a dollar and HOLY HELL do they work well.
I bow down to your wonder, dollar stores. (Now I have to trim Ciel's mane. -sobs-)

Don't worry friend, it looks amazing and I truly think you suit him really well~ Everything will come together and I think you'll realize how awesome you really are :3

I got some extra money today so now I'm on fabric.com trying to figure out what fabric to buy. I need brown twill for my Ymir and Lightning cosplay but I also need blue with white pinstripe for Hayato and Camus and yellow and purple cotton for Koubun Ka(Not accurate at all but I'm wearing this during the summer and I don't want to die of heat.)

Just finished the paint job on Richter's boots. I'll check the color tomorrow, but if it looks good I can seal it and call it done. I would love to get an almost finished shot of Richter tomorrow.

In the meantime, sleepies.

Couldn't decide on which fabric to get, so I decided to buy some InstaMorph. I hope I ordered enough for what I have in mind. >.>; (Parts of Ovan's gun, Munakata saber, Camus's baton, Ymir's gear, and etc. . .)

I hope it goes well. I'm not much of a prop's maker. (Though it probably go a lot better if I had more room to work with props. . .)

Did the second run of my Queen Mab makeup with good supplies (really the third overall). I'm happy with the colors and the contouring, I think, but I still have trouble getting the aquacolor as smooth as it needs to be. Which leads to my husband saying that "it looks like you dunked your face in flour" and being oh-so-helpful. Bah.

Looks like I'll be doing this once a week to get the hang of it and smooth out my technique.

I hate it how expensive furry fabrics (I don't know the proper name) are. I don't even need that much but still (about 11,8 inches or so) that perfect one costs almost more than the rest of my Mikoto Suoh cosplay.
I need a bigger fabric store here, please.

Thanks. I really needed that ^^

Which reminds me, I'm finally going to get Lucille pictures today! I'd start trying everything on now but my parents are at the movies and I can never get the vest over my head without help because its kinda tight.

Cosplay world, rather than tier?

Hello All! Let me first start by saying if you haven't figured it out- I'm new to cosplay.

I actually have been thinking about it for a while, and figured since I've already gotten my Blizzcon tickets why not start there.

What I am writing to find out is if rules apply, or can I let my imagination run free? This thought is directed to my costume because I want to be a Blood Elf Rogue but none of the tiers appeal to me.
Instead I was thinking about doing an original design, as if my character lived in the world itself. Would that be ok?
I would still try to get across the fact that I am a rogue, and a blood elf.

As my first time I'm nervous, and expecting to bite off more than I can chew.
Please let me know what you think about it.

Thank you.

I'm so close to finishing the bias tape on Essi's dress. I could get it done today...But I have so much homework. Tomorrow is the last possible day to turn in three assignments and I've kinda been putting them off to work on the dress instead...
But I'm so close to not having to use bias tape anymore! Maybe if I rush my assignments, I will still have time to finish that today...I won't be able to work anymore on it until Wednesday night, maybe Thursday morning since I need to buy more supplies. But then I can use that free day for an essay that's due.
I'm itching to get this cosplay all completed. Even though my Anon said she'd bring Anon, I keep worrying that she'd forget and leave him behind, and I'll be very disappointed for doing all this work and not being able to wear her yet.

Don't know if I'll get Richter progress shots today. My allergies are killing me. Super miserable.

But Fanime is in 18 days, so I'm sucking it up.

There is just something SO oddly satisfying about sanding a dome shape with a sanding block.

Plenty of things on my mind as I sew, but these stand out:

If at first you don't succeed, pull the stitches out, realign the pieces, and try sewing again.

Also, make sure you have a Plan B. And C. And D. Heck, go up to a plan L if you have to, 'cause sometimes things just aren't going to cooperate the first time or two around.
