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.

I decided to cosplay TYL!Xanxus from KHR. Ordered a swatch this afternoon of black matte vinyl to see if I wanna make the coat and pants out of it. I'm pretty excited to be moving away from twill for a change. XD

I ended up buying 2 wigs for Xanxus because I couldn't choose which one I liked better. Each has a fault that the other doesn't, and I wish I could just merge them into one to make it the perfect wig. 8D But if I end up using the second one I bought, I'll probably use the other one for a Inagaki Goro cosplay.

Speaking of, I shouldn't be allowed to buy concert dvds. I bought a dvd of SMAP's super.modern.artistic.performance 2008 concert, and it's like I wanna make just about every single outfit they change into. I'm sure it's gonna be the same when my Pop Up! SMAP dvd comes in the mail. DX But I think I decided on their outfit on Disc 1 from the song "Ganbarimashou" to "Kokoro Pazururizumu". In the last one they have crazy looking headphone/mics to sing into to make their voices sound digital(?), those would be fun to wear. I just can't decide between Goro, Kimura, or Katori.

I have never been scared to actually sew pieces to my costume but it finally happened to me...twice. Also,I now hate fiddling with white fabric, and sewing trim. Trunks is killing me.

The sleeves are almost done I just need to sew up the armholes a little bit more and dye them, which is taking place Friday.

Then, I'm going to get a yardstick and start work on the obi and skirt this weekend/next week.

I've now got fabric!! But of course, being me, I forgot to buy the interfacing I need for the vest. So one more trip (at least) to JoAnn's before this cosplay is done!

Plans for today include washing the fabric, cutting out and pinning the patterns (which includes modifying the pants pattern into chaps), and possibly starting to cut the fabric. Keep in mind, these are plans. If my procrastinating ways come into play, it's more than likely that this won't happen for another few days.

Pro: It turns out that the costume really is as simple as I'm imagining it to be.

Con: The convention I want to have it ready for in time is in September, not December. Daaaaaamn, why do they keep changing the dates like that on me? ;A;
