Had a successful thrifting trip today, purchased a base coat that I plan on turning into Russia's Bloody Sunday coat, as well as dark red bias tape and gold thread. I might need to buy more gold lace though, I don't think what I have is going to be enough.
And uh...
The coat reaches my ankles, maybe even past my ankles.
I have a lot of work and altering to do for it.

My friend picked up her Mel costume today - she loves it. We had a little impromptu shoot in my house - had some fun with that. XD I'm glad she likes it, though, there are a few things I would have loved to improve on but... you know, her leaving tomorrow and all. :/ I told her if she has any problems with it when she comes back that I'll gladly fix it for her. Regardless, I'm glad to be done with it, and now that I am... Well, I want to make something else now. Too bad I don't get paid until next month because my job is an asshole like that. At least it'll be a beefy paycheck...

Still gotta style my wig and finish my pants, but I'm actually close to being done and that makes me extremely happy because at the beginning of this project, I never thought I'd get this cosplay finished ^^;
OMG. It looks awesome!

So my friend and I finally decided that we are going to be going out shopping on Friday for Team Aqua stuff. Hopefully we are going to be able to find a black and white striped shirt. It's always the easy things that are hard to find. >_<

XD I'm looking forward to Sunday because Kingdom Hearts shoot!~ My Xemnas wig is looking good too. Pic I didn't do much...just hair sprayed my friends work while fitting it to my head rather then the wig heads more.

Going to see if my Dad is busy on Sunday or Saturday, I need to see if I can get another light sword. the ones I have are broken. Also should grab a pair of black gloves too, not sure where mine are...

Edit: went to wallmart for interfacing found fabric perfect for Natsume from Brothers Conflict's tie.... Lol the cosplay gods are telling me something.

I might have to do that. Lol, it's not even a prop for cosplay directly, but will be used for drinking out of while in cosplay and eating XD

Got quite a bit of progress on Russia's coat today~ Had to take off the buttons so I can replace them with gold ones later, I swear the maker of that coat had a button fetish or something. I must have taken off twenty of them, I swear.
Tomorrow I need to alter the length and hopefully get it died. I need to buy new gold lace and red...Stuff for the cuffs though, I'm not going to have enough.
I found the perfect buttons as well! They're gold and very military-esque, but they're two bucks for a two-pack and I need six of them. Guess I'll just have to go buy them when I buy my lace and stuff.

I don't know what my father expects a cosplay mess room to look like when you're elbow-deep in fake hair. It certainly doesn't get prettier when people come in to take inflatable boats out of the closet.

oooh in that case you want to make sure you get paint that's safe and not going to come off when wet. there are some multi-surface craft paints you can get for decorating ceramics etc, i just did a mug with them last month. they were pretty cheap, but you'd have to go to a craft or art supply shop for them, anything at walmart or dollar stores would be acrylic poster paint that would probably come off on someone's face while drinking :P (though they're usually non toxic at least)


and Lero's head is done! yay! well i might add a bit of detail/definition to the face with a pen, I haven't decided. I'm afraid of ruining it. pic:
it's mirrored for some reason, i took it with the webcam. the squinty eye is on the right. looking at it now I notice the nose is too big, i'm not sure I can fix that without redoing it *sigh*

Thank you so much!

I'm seriously super happy that the shirt isn't falling apart at the seams ><

I got some boots for my Applejack at Savers yesterday for $6.50. I bought them with the intention of painting apples on them, but when my mum saw them and heard my plan, she said, "But they're so cute. If you paint them they'll be ruined!"
Now I'm hesitant to paint them cuz...what if I do want to wear them outside of cosplay??? >_<
