Going to see a cosplay friend that lives just over 3 hours away from me.. doesn't seem like much, but when you're travelling a long distance for the first time on your own, does seem like long! Also, I got to go through London and the underground to get to her house which is a county just above London.
I really do hope I don't get lost D:

Bringing my Hanon cosplay along so I can help her with her Luchia's! Like a mini-cosplay-making party! :3

My Minako wig has been styled into submission! Took long enough. >_> I just hope it'll look fine for the whole weekend but I am taking my styling stuff just in case. Now the question is how to get it from New Jersey to Canada without messing it up.

Yay ~ My cosplay partner/class mate/awesome friend came home with me today and I got a lot done~ We cut out the sticks we need for our pokemon props and I started cutting out fabric for my prop Plus I did some progress on the main body of Gyarados, as well as started on the beading

PLUS - I bought my Jade wig I can't wait to start cosplaying her! I love the Homestuck fandom in Denmark and hanging out with them in-character will be great <3

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.
Oh rules, so necessary, yet so aggravating.

And I've recently been wondering whether I should have bought brown boots instead of black for England.
But I already threw away the receipt for the boots I already bought, so... oh well.

The hat is here.....and I think my head dome thingies are too big. Crap. And where are my shoes?! C'mon UPS. It's a sad day when USPS beats you, especially when I ordered your stuff the day before.

Also got a new Monster High doll today....I will NOT cosplay her. I will NOT cosplay her. I will NOT cosplay her...............

I will just concentrate on your username and icon, and somehow, the motivation to work will magically be transferred and be put to good use!

(Tell me if it works! )

I miss sewing too, I know what you mean. x.x (Still lacking appropriate fabric though, pfffff.) I'm thinking about trying to see if I can do some artisan craft projects (like Trucy's top hat). I might have leftover cardboard that could function as a base?

SHOOOESSS!!! You are here! You are so pretty! But you need inserts because your soles are hard as concrete. But this means I can finally start on the skirt! I may start tomorrow or on Sunday when I can use the whole day to cut and sew. I might do that; use tomorrow to clean up the table and floor, then actually sew on Sunday. And no one gives a crap about what I'm doing, so why am I still typing? Booooo..............

Well, at least I know why our cosplays weren't shipped. The guy cancelled our order, then went back to his site and upped the prices on all the cosplays we ordered. Seriously? That's just screwed up.

Also, that wig has a little over a week to get here before International Cosplay Day. My mom's already given up on it. Oh well, looks like she'll be a dark grey haired Near :/

But hey, at least two out of three of our flags came. Now to wait for the third one... PLEEEASE COME BEFORE THE 27th ;___;

LOL, alrighty! I'll let you know if I receive your gift XD

I dk how well you'd be able to get the roundness you need for a top hat out of cardboard ... may I suggest poster board? More flexible, and still won't collapse from the light weight of fabric ... besides it comes in different thicknesses, so you can be picky =P

I have this growing suspicion that the mail man has my wig and is avoiding me :-/ There's no other reason why we wouldn't have gotten ANY mail today.

Thank goodness I'm not the only one who starts suspecting that the postman's out to get them while I'm waiting....

@Stars and Sailor Moon- I've made two top hats with posterboard and it works amazingly well. You can make it VERY strong if you use multiple layers as well.

Last night, I shortened the front of my Sakura dream dress. And then I tried to roll hem it with my serger....but then because it's not a stright cut, at some of the parts, the stitches would just come out because there was nothing for them to hold.....now I don't know how to hem it.

;w; YES~! My Lithuania flag came~! The only thing even vaguely disappointing about it is that, if you look closely, you can see tiny red splotches on the yellow and green stripes. But they're tiny, and you can only see them if you hold it close to your face and search. Besides that, I love it~! :3 The 27th will be fun~

Now, we just keep hoping for the wig.
