Anime Expo is almost upon us. Last week I was super excited, but now comes the familiar "nervous and pessimistic" part that I hate. I'm starting to get scared that I won't be able to meet my own expectations of being friendly or having fun or...well, being even semi attractive in my cosplay. OTL (I don't think that matters in reality, but I want to do my favorite character's at least a bit of justice).

I'm also not sure when I'll be able to make any progress on future cosplay. After losing my car and being notified that I'm in deep shit if I don't pay a minimum payment towards my tax debt...I realized I should take money seriously and start saving a bit. I guess going to Good Will or Savers every now and then wouldn't hurt though. =P I don't want to stop working on cosplay completely for too long.

I figured yesterday morning that I'm not sure if I bought enough fabric for Nocturnal or not, and mom said we can head there tomorrow to buy more.
Problem is I haven't started on the cosplay yet, so I still don't know if I have enough.
I REALLY need to stop being so lazy...

I just realized if I add fem. Gilgamesh to my con schedule for Otakon...that makes things very difficult. -_- I don't know when I'm going to cosplay her, unless I remove Camellia Gumi from my lineup but I don't want to and I want to be Fate/Extra Heroine for the Type-Moon shoot. Decisions...decisions...

Had an amazing time at the meetup yesterday. Everyone loved the Sniper outfit, though I need to work on it some more (Arm patches, ammo pack, quiver). Still, it was great and I made a few new friends and referred them to here (If they're not already members)

I didn't fail!!!! I just finished Fleur's wand handle, and while it isn't perfect, I still think it's pretty good, especially considering I've never done anything this detailed/difficult before! The swirl is too bit, but that's the only way I was able to do it. I'm pretty happy with it!

Started on Nocturnal (AT LAST!).
Done the sleeves so far, then moving on to the back. Will probably not start the hood and front until tomorrow, when I'll also buy gold and silver ribbons and silver textile paint or something similar to do the swirls

Found a gorgeous gold trim in the exact shade I want for Maximilian on eBay...but do I really need 13 yards of it?

This costume is getting so damn expensive. Ohhhh well!

So, after six weeks I have finally returned to the US of A. I bought all sorts of kimono accessories while in Japan so all that's left is finishing Len's kimono... in one week. And then finish my friend's costume in one week.

Oh yeah, and my tailbone got bruised on my trip back to the states.

FML, but I must endeavor to persevere!

I'm in such a cosplay funk right now. ;_; There's a lot of stuff going on in my life right now that is occupying most of my attention. But I've got projects that are sitting untouched on my to-do list, and I still have materials that need purchasing. I just can't seem to find the proper motivation to get my butt moving.

I retired my formal Soul Eater cosplay this past year, and so now I've just got a (cheap) pinstripe suit staring at me.

I am SO very tempted to dye it black, hem the jacket, turn the pants into a skirt and make a Meg costume (from Paperman.) If only I had a George...

Worked pretty hard on my Kid Loki and Witch Hunter Gretel cosplays on my days off, and then I came back to school and haven't done anything since lol. I think it's because I hate sitting at my desk while I'm at school.

Spray painted the bracelets for fem Gilgamesh today. Ended up having to run to Home Depot to get another can because the one I had ran out halfway. >_> But now my the beads are all colored. Just need to string the necklace together tomorrow and she'll be almost ready for Otakon.
