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??? >_<

My hat shaper came today! Now I just need to get some roving and I can start on Fleur's hat! Does anyone know of any physical stores that sell wool roving? Or is my only option the internet?

I pretty much have everything for Kou (Gou) but her grey sweater, wig and school patch! The next outfit I wanna work on for her is her Arabian outfit!

Attempting to dye a scrap fabric from my coat, so far it's dying only....It's a violet color instead of the dark navy blue like it's supposed to be. I have no idea what happened or how to fix it.

Got so much shit done last night with the PiC on our designated cosplay work night sleepover. Started on Rikku's Thief blades, PiC sketched them on posterboard, cut them out, I traced them along with some other layered components onto cardboard we got free from the recycling center (it was Depend men's underwear boxes, lololol) and cut them aaaaalllllll out with a box cutter. I never want to see another box cutter in my life. I still can't quite feel my thumb. Sawed two small pieces off the wooden dowel I bought at Michael's for the handles, then she covered them in expanding foam and let 'em dry overnight. She'll continue on them by carving out the shape and painting on her own. She's the cosplay genius out of the two of us.

Also hand-sewed the grey tie to be attached to the back of Yang's left leg bandana and purchased the fabric for said bandana and her scarf.

Aaaalso, I bought some scarlet Rit dye and ombre'd the new yellow fabric I bought to better match Rikku's bikini top as well as to dye better than the shitty fleece we stupidly bought before. It came out pretty well. I'm gonna send it through a very short detergent-less cold cycle in the wash and throw it in the dryer (it's 100% cotton, I'm not worried) and hopefully any splotchy bits where we slowly introduced fabric will blend better. After that I'm pinning and sewing the scarf to be the right width and length.

We seriously got so much shit done. I'm proud. PiC also made some progress on her Hextech Janna cosplay but spent much of the night working on my blades. I love her.

The term PiC is catching on. Bwahaha.

I've decided to learn to spin poi, with the intention of putting veils on 'em once I'm competent. Because obviously I'm not doing enough things.

Gah, the dye isn't being blue like it's supposed to, it's a dark grey-ish purplish color. I supposed I can get away with it if I can get it darker though, since I can't find 'official' colors anyway, only that it's a 'dark colored coat'. Dark greyish-purple is probably the best I can do, but I really wanted navy blue...At least I have until November, but I can't do any more work on it until I get it all dyed. I'll have to think about what I want to do color wise.
Now to go bleach the sink and brood over this.

I totally got it from you. It's clever and cute and it's much easier than saying "my best friend/cosplay buddy" or "Mikayla" because the first is tedious and with the second, anyone new would be like, "...who the fuck is Mikayla?" I dig it.

I have found out that either I had an unfortunate manufacturing incident that involved a bottle being filled with the wrong color and not realizing it until after I had poured both in, or RIT uses an ungodly amount of violet in their navy dye. I have found the blue in my violet sink, I've filtered it out but now I don't believe there is enough dye content to really do anything to my new test piece.
Does anybody know of a different fabric dye brand? One that hopefully has navy blue dye that is actually navy blue...

Try Tulip. You can get it at Walmart, Joann, Michael's, pretty much any craft store. I used their blue to dye a large amount of clothing my junior year of high school for the dancers on our Avatar themed homecoming float and it worked great.

No significant progress lately, as real life has gotten in the way a bit. I did finish hand-sewing the fancy trim on Maximilian's pants though (and promptly did not iron them, haha).

And I'm thinking of going authentic and using red-dyed horse hair for Max's helmet crest and train. The way the train moves in the cut-scenes really looks like it's supposed to be horse hair, which would make sense because that's what Roman helmets traditionally used. It's not terribly expensive, but it does mean I'll be sewing my own wefts. Yay?

Kell: The gimp looks a lot better than bias tape would. Maximilian's too fancy for a boring line.
