I. Am. READY!!
I finished my Rin boots! They were hell to put together but I did it! Just have to touch up my wig and I'll be all set. For Ruri, however I will be wearing black boots instead of brown, but since I'm not doing a canon version of her anyways I can get away with it, I'll be wearing enough to be recognized.
Last push guys, you can do it!

Just got to iron some things, and I'm good to start packing.
And today I started on the summer's new costume! :P Normally I'd give myself a break, but I only have a month to get it together and I'll need to mock up a few things.

I'm good to go. My kimono is done and the Captain is all cleaned up.

I never figured out how to keep the leg belt up. Oh well, just will have to keep pulling it up.

I was going to make a Pokemans to put stuff in (like my phone) but I never got around to it. I'll be bringing my giant slowpoke nonetheless. What can I say... I like the Pokemon!

I'm almost done! Staining the wig with the Rit DyeMore worked! (Yay!) The only things I have left to do are to trim a few more things including the fur on the hood, stitch the bottom edges so they don't fray (or leave them and deal with the potential consequences), and the emblem on the shoulder. I still don't have red contacts, but I haven't given up on them yet. Everything else should be done on time!

RinRin is done! Touched up my wig today and I packed some stuff. I have a picture in my gallery but the photo doesn't do it justice (I just mean that the photo isn't enough) and I have to say, I like how her hair style looks on me. I like it a lot. If you see me walking around on Saturday it'll look nicer in person. So my line up for this year's con is:
Fri: Ruri
Sat: Rin
Sun: Rin (all from Yugioh Arc-V)
See you guys there!

I am having the dilemma of when to wear what... Friday I'd like to bring the Captain so I can get through weapon's check and such... wear it Saturday too for most of the day... and the kimono Sunday? It says it might rain Sunday... I have a pokemon umbrella.... Would work. My concern is my damn plantar fasciitis.... When you get my age..... Things start hurting....



On second thought, Kimono Friday and Sunday, Captain will come on Saturday. It will save my feet....

Apologies for the typos. Auto correct tries to out smart me.

Finally done! I'm letting the bottom of the jacket fray because I don't care anymore. (Besides, it's supposed to look kinda torn anyways.) Hopefully getting contact lenses tomorrow.
On a side note, if any of you guys ever decide to use that Tulip fabric paint spray, wear gloves! I forgot to wear some and it was hell scrubbing the stuff off. Heck, even now I'm still finding specks of the stuff on me! Stupid fabric paint. Normal fabric paint was never this hard to get off my hands! *irritated*
Anywho~ The only thing I have left to worry about is the clean up. I've got threads everywhere!

Good to know. I have used the paint on stuff and that's not fun to get off....

Just one more sleep 'til the big dance. Yep the date is finally here

Speaking of last minute stuff I'm actually leaving my red thingy unsewn on purpose to add some creative interpretation for Ruri.

See you guys there!

(Psst...don't forget rain gear)
