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??? >_<

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?

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.
