It shouldn't be too hard if the wig was originally styled for the pigtails. No wefting to do and such. I would say go for it.
It'd be awesome but oh god I don't even know where to start on that. XD

Alright, sounds good to me! I guess I'll do it either Saturday when I get home or Sunday after I get back from my dad's house.

So I felt like camwhoring in the Sakura dress I'm working on.
After a while, I realized that the shortest part isn't center.....but I've already finished the seam and everything! ;_; I just realized that I had marked the center of each side and matched that while I was hand-sewing, but of course disappearing ink disappears and it's been over a week.....
But since I was planning on shortening it (a lot) maybe I can move the center when I do that....
But man, I LOVE this fabric. It's so thin (perfect for this 3.5 yard skirt) and soft and has a really slight shine to it and it's so pretty!

Today I got a 10 yard bolt of bleached Muslin at JoAnn Fabric for $31, original price was $50. Yay now I have enough to make a few mock-ups. Now I have to be really carful & not spind anymore money. I spent about $400 at the mall,Staples for printer ink & that inclued gas. Now I'm regreating spending go much. But next time I go to the mall, I'll return a necklace chain the didn't fit any of my pendants.

Someday I will cosplay William Birkin's second form of the G virus. Maybe Halloween next year. I'll read some stuff about making latex masks in the meantime.

Priced out some EVA foam and other supplies for Nihlus...
Now I REALLY need to sell a costume or two. There's no way it's gonna happen otherwise. Oh well, I was getting tired of Sebastian anyway. *evil grin* Now, onward to finish paying the rest of my tuition in order to see exactly how much money I need to make...

Wing module: Profile
Completed however unusable due to massive instability brought on by the shifting of the center of gravity when progressing into and out of profile... what a shame.

The materials didn't fail, the module didn't break, the hinge didn't bend, the bases didn't show any signs of cracking, so it's not a complete loss. I figured a way to make it work in profile mode but the modifications to it would lack in motion...

Perhaps too far ahead for me to worry about.

Primary goal: Construction of the ACen wings!

You have no idea. The shenanigans we could pull... *longing sigh*

In mediocre news, I never did get to organizing my cosplay room. I studied, I cleaned house, I fell asleep. Kind of lame. Maybe tomorrow. XD

Everything ordered and ready for my Karkat cosplay.

Now. We play the waiting game. *stares at eBay page in hopes it'll update and give me a tracking number for SOMETHING*

Finally sorta recovered my energy~ The meet was fun, even though we were more than fashionably late due to the fact we got lost on the way to the Oregon Zoo because we managed to get so lost we ended up in Vancouver, WA. 8D;;

So, lessee.
- Wigs from TaoBao'll be here Saturday since they cleared LA customs around one yesterday
- I'm not happy with CosplayWig in the slightest due to issues with their service and shipping, as I have still yet to receive my wig and the tracking's not being reassuring in the slightest
- I added another costume to be done before the end of the year because I need new friends (Likely going to have Halloween!Hungary done for Halloween because they encouraged it, it's fairly simple, and I've wanted to do it since it's release so they didn't have to do much)
- Madoka discussion has served to remind me to have a friend watch it so the possibility of her cosplaying Gertrude to my H. N. Elly & our other friend's QB is higher~
- And I pre-ordered the Witch figure set, even though I thought I'd get away from this show without buying any merch. ;;

I really wish I could get motivated to work on costumes, I've been in a cosplay rut for a couple of months now, and I'm ready to work on costumes, just can't bring myself to do it =(

I'm having the exact opposite problem, unfortunately... you can have my cosplay-related motivation, haha?

For 2012, I only have 2 new cosplays planned, seeing as how I only really ever get to 1 con a year and how insane my school schedule is. I'm already being killed by sports practices and other misc. projects/business-y things (such as with clubs and service projects and the like), which leaves no time for me to get materials to do much of anything.

If only I could get supplies. Then I could work in small chunks...

I hate it when that happens~! I'm in the opposite issue. Theres a cosplay gathering tomorrow thats NOT casual. But all I have is casual or Childrens Day France (and its at a beach, so why the FUCK would it not be casual!?). So instead, I shall be going to the thrift store today and buying stuff to complete Davesprite, though minus the wings since I haven't made them yet XD;; Not sure anyone will mind.
