I spent today ironing a cowboy hat and starting a cape for my Tuxedo Mask costume I couldn't find a good hat with a flat brim, but luckily the foam hat is responding to the iron! I love the feel of the anti-static lining I bought for the black part of the cape. "Do not iron". I take that as more of a guideline than a rule.

Saving up for my Mikasa boots. I worked two hours this morrning and I work another two on Wednesday, which makes $40 altogether, and the boots are 32.50, but I'm ordering with two other people in one order to take advantage of a deal and save money but I can't order them until one of the people gets her paycheck which isn't for about another week and a half. I'm gonna see if she'll let me just buy her boots and knock the price of them off the money I owe her. ($80, yikes!)

Ugh can't find a goddamn hat for my Serena cosplay to save my life..
I need to find, what I was told, is called a Pork Pie Hat. However, the ONLY one in a color that is even CLOSE to the one I need, is freaking $150..Why someone would spend $150 on a goddamn HAT? Beats me..But I sure as hell ain't..

Have a commissioner working on my Stocking cosplay too. This one I feel much better about. I trust this commissioner and have become good online friends with them. I have seen their past works and even past WIP pics and believe they are really good at this. Can't wait.

Fate..Not coming along too well..I'm stuck..I need to get her boots finished..I can finish the rest of the stuff just fine, but these boots are killing me..I need to stop picking characters with boots that need to be made rather then bought..

Um....Think that's it for now. Might start working on Blake soon if I still end up cosplaying her. Either her or Nora anyway..

Hehe, I put the iron on the lowest setting, cover the brim with a tissue (because it has black flocking) and press the brim flat. The heat seems to re-shape the foam base, so it is flattening out nicely. I'm going to add my own cardboard top to the top of the hat to get the top hat shape I want and cover the whole hat with black satin. This is my plan, anyway I didn't want to make the hat completely from scratch, because I was worried about how to keep a brim from sagging.

JasonTerror, how about getting a cheap hat in the right shape and covering it with the right kind of material for your cosplay? Top Hats are super expensive too, that is why I am modifying a $3 hat

By pork pie hat do you mean a straw "boater" style? Like people wore in the 1900's? Shallow crown? I see those in thrift shops all the time, maybe you can find one to modify....

I'm currently making Ocarina of Time Zelda's tiara using Model Magic, it's fun so far but I'm already not totally happy with it so may try it again. How do you tell when it's dry? It's been more than 24 hours but it's kind of springy still.... >.<

I'm also working on her pauldrons but losing the will to live on those so they're going to be a very basic job until I feel like doing them properly.... haha!

In progress Rapunzel: The embroidery is finally starting to look like something. One full side of the front panel has the solid stitch, and the other side is halfway done. Then I get to tackle the mass of the 6' radius circle skirt. Wish me luck D:

Taking the fluff out of Canterbury's wig. So much fluff, and the hot water's not doing much.
