Mei is pretty much finished now after her glasses finally arrived and I started on her wig. I must say while the actual manufacturing of the glasses took weeks they didn't skimp on the shipping, it arrived just a few days after leaving the factory.

Her wig is also a lot simpler than my last one (what wouldn't be though?) so that's also mostly done after only really a day of working on it. It's a pretty normal hairstyle so I'm a little worried about overworking it but I think it could still use a bit of trimming and styling. I'm also thinking it's one of those styles that may have to be "finished" the morning of, since I don't want to freeze it with heavy-duty spray so it'll look more natural.

Now to figure out what to do with an entire Jeannie ponytail extension I ended up not needing since I just used the shorter base one.

Thanks I think I have a good shape going, but need to adjust the back panel as it is overlapping by my waist but too far apart on my ribs.

That's great! If it's tightlacing (unsure if it is), you can take it in and let it out from the sides as well. Keep the center back panel completely straight for structural reasons.

I want it to be moderately tightlacing (I have some baby squish to hide), but nothing too extreme. It's just an awkward part to fiddle with as I need an extra set of hands that also knows what I'm trying to get at. Sadly, my husband is only slightly helpful in this :P

If you use the reverse bunny ear method of lacing a corset, you can lace yourself easily if you have a mirror

I'm fixing up Merida for next weekend, but also working on Fanime stuff, as well. Trying to get my obi done for Mink's yukata before I get the fabric for the rest of the cosplay next week.

Pants mockup for boyfriend's Elliot cosplay (so far so good EXCEPT for the damn crotch! What is WITH this mock fly?!?!?!?!?), my overbust corset for Abigail, and a TON of making stuff for Anime north. Big batches of squid hats this week and next!

Finally finished up Suzu's black armband things after not being able to work on them for weeks (thanks tax season and college applications). 3 months until the convention with one day set aside each week dedicated to cosplay gives me about 12 days to finish up the gloves, scarf, and sword holder...yikes. And unfortunately the fabric for the gloves has to be the same one used for the shirt and pants, and that's not stretchy what-so-ever. I'm hoping to finish them up by the end of May so I have all of June to get the sword stuff done.

Also the new Joann opened up Thursday with a ton of sales going on, so I got the rest of the fabric I need for Kikyo as well as extra pins and some sequins to fix a dress for super cheap. I still need some white velvet for my white mage, but everything they have looks grungey and almost yellow when put next to the other fabric I want to use. And I discovered I have the perfect shirt, pants, and boots in my closet to do Cynthia from Pokemon; I just need the cape, scarf, and wig. One more cosplay to be added to my list of future plans.

Crocheting. Crocheting is happening. I've made a bag for a Steampunk Mermaid. I've got one of two boot covers done. I've also started crocheting sleeves for Sarah Sanderson costume.

Big fluffy ears for my Star Guardian Lulu cosplay.

So far all I've achieved is getting covered in green fur fibres. ^.^;

Just lots of Pinteresting (I realized "Pinning" would be easily confused here) during downtime at work. Eager to get some crafts going to use up a lot of my leftovers but I'm almost done closing on a condo and if so will need to pack and move soon so.....not exactly a good time to pull out a bunch of things and make a big mess.
