Maybe you need a new sewing machine if you have tried everything and still have trouble.

My sewing machine works fine on any other fabric. Otherwise, I would have already come to this conclusion. Haha.

Weird. Maybe the fabric was of poor quality.

@Black Aww Black I'm so sorry. ): I hate when my machine does that! ):

I got my Boyfriend's Skyloft Link done today! I would make the sword/sheild, but he's only wearing it for a photoshoot with me and I don't really want to spend more money on it, so yhea. xD

I now officially hate applique. Also it looks kinda dumb on me because I have hips and boobs and he dosen't, so ignore that. xD Here it is!

Yeah. It was being a nightmare. But whats more of a nightmare is yesterday I was in the airport from 9am-9pm because of flight delays, cancellations, and missing my connecting flights due to the delays. And to top it off they left/lost my suitcase in San Francisco. They're supposed to deliver it this morning but.. -_____- imnothopeful

Thanks guys! I have a couple more on my page and will be adding more as I get them.

@Black I had problems with my last sewing machine. It took longer than normal to get stuff done.

it gets better.

My luggage didn't show up this morning. I was called at 1pm saying it was in LA. Called at 5 and was told it got to LA at 3:30.

I just got back from a dinner event and it wasn't here yet so I called again. There had been a delivery at 6 but my bag wasn't taken with for whatever reason. I was told it would be delivered at 7am tomorrow. So I complained about the entire situation and asked why it wasn't delivered tonight if it had been there the entire afternoon..so now it's being delivered right now. Hopefully. Nope, I was just told it's going to take 4 hours so..yay. I'll have my stuff at 2am.

Black- that happened to my friend at wondercon :/ and all the wigs were in that bag so they went casual for the first day of the con. sometimes they just don't care.

Guess what I received today I barely had a chance to try it on since it came this morning.


Many thanks to Seifer-Sama for taking on such a rush order for me and for putting up with my odd requests and odd fabric choices haha *-* <3
I adore it! It's perfect, I'd sleep in it if it wasn't summer and hot xD

I just need to make the belt ..and my wig...whenever I have time @-@ still have my commission to finish tonight and two of my own costumes to start and finish >< AX..y u so stressful for everyone.

That's really cool! Esp for a first sewing project. The first thing I ever sewed was a pillowcase and it was frap :P. It's going to look awesome with all the final details

Thanks. I intend to improve it as I go along and plan on taking better photos at the cons I am attending. I also plan on refining it as soon as my two July conventions are over.

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone here has cosplayed (or seen a picture of) the shoes that Maiden Zelda wears? I can't see them in any concept art or in any pictures of other cosplayers. So I'm trying to decide what kind of shoes to wear. They needn't be too tall as the skirt doesn't quite touch the floor, I have some ivory coloured wedges but not sure they 'fit' the costume. I was thinking gold sandals but since she has a dark coloured belt it may look weird. The other option was some light brown short boots with buckles on the side. It might fit with TP Zelda later on, I guess.

Any ideas?

Luckioly for me, I managed to switch my night shift to a morning shift the next day, so now I can at least go to the first full day of the con. Yay!
