I shouldn't be thinking about props before the costume is anywhere NEAR done. But I want to make my summoner yuna staff as epic as my costume (hopefully) will be...and that doesn't involve cardboard..

Like I said, I already bought the sports tape. Actually I tried the method last night and I'm a little less afraid of it now, although peeling it off was the most nervewracking thing I've even done in my life.

What's on my mind now?:
I want my white fabric paint back, my Roxas borrowed it yesterday for her wristband, and now I have to wait untill she's done with it to finish Olette's socks.
Also I'm going out today to get a cheap pair of white sneakers that I can change into Olette's shoes, and my Roxas is geting something to alter into the jacket.
The cosplay picnic is in a week. And we're not done yet. I don't think I've cut a cosplay this close since the Bleach movie. Usually I'm done way before I need to be.

Tried starting my Suzie Q dress over today.
I knew I forgot a zipper, but I figured I could just squeeze into it.
Except the neck hole was too small. And I had already sewn all of the bodice.
And the only other zipper in my house is green. ;w;

So I started the head wrap, and finished it except for hot glue-ing the flowers onto it.
Whatever. .___. Progress is progress, even if I will have to rip the bodice apart later. >:

Wow, that outfit sounds really complicated. oO Good luck with that! ^^

I'm all set with Jigen except for spirit gum/remover and make-up. I also don't really have a fedora, but the hat I have is okay for now. But must do the hair...yes..XD

Oh my Goooooood.

Sogen Con was amaaaazing. *______* I had no idea cons could be that much fun. Like. Seriously. The people I met were so cool and my Soul cosplay debut went awesome! I even won Best Workmanship at the cosplay contest.~

And I got fangirl'd a lot. xD

I really can't wait for next year!

Didn't end up going to JoAnn's yesterday (we had a "family day"), but I will today, after going to the doctor and before going to work. I'm really hoping I can get this cosplay finished, or mostly done, before I go off to school. Then I won't be so worried.

...Where would I find a relatively good, but not too expensive, cowboy hat?

Band camp is finally over, so I can get back to working on cosplu now. I'm about half-way finished with Ashley's Nill dress, and I'm making a lot of progress on Chrona, too. I still need to finish Yuffie's shuriken, though. I spray-painted one of the spikes, and it turned out really nicely, so now I can go ahead with the other three.

Phew, so much to do, and only 28 days until school starts up again! It doesn't seem like a lot of time at all. D:

Oooh! All I need to do if make the ying-yang patch for the back and attach the hood, and then my Hinata jacket will be FINISHED!!!

Ok, so the bottom is a little snug. But I'll make it work. And besides, I did it all in 1 day anyways -_-;

Then I gotta make her pants, which will be a snap, finish her shoes (75% done) and hem her fishnet shirt.

Then the Akatsuki cloak. I got a pattern too! And I am buying the fabric for it little by little with the random Joann's coupons I've been getting in the mail.

2 months, should be enough time, ne?

Should I get wigs? I think I should get wigs...I've got 2 wigs picked out from Amphigory for Rinoa and Yuna...$70 with shipping..but they're special order. Well..the con isn't until the end of January so I'll have plenty of time time to decide. I'll decide by Dec. 1..that gives them almost 2 months. Yes. Sounds good.

*grar*

Watching the entire original Star wars trilogy today because it was too hot to do anything else rekindled my love for sci-fi tech, especially goggles....WHY am I doomed with these glasses and no cash for contacts soon enough? I want goggles something fierce. They look so damn cool. T_T And being the obsessee I am, I thought up an entire cosplay outfit based entirely around having cool goggles. lol.
