I'm so nervous...this is going to be my first time cosplaying and I'm terrified. I have no idea where to start, how to sew, what to buy, etc. >A<;;
And I'm *EXTRA* nervous because I'll be hanging out with someone who is like...the queen of cosplaying (people have asked her to MODEL for them). Hoping that she's willing to help me out a little bit... What's worse, I'm planning on losing weight, so I don't know when I should start sewing; is there a way to make something smaller without it looking like a train wreck?

...I'm also scared about getting rude comments. There's one guy in the group I hang with every year at AX who will straight-up insult someone (behind their back, of course) if their cosplay looks bad and I reeeeeaaaaaaally don't want him to do it to me. I'm shy enough as it is; if he says anything negative, I know I'll just break down and never cosplay again. ;~; I take comments like those to heart, which is why I'm actually trying to lose weight now...

BUT ANYWAY. So yeah. No clue where to start. I know for a fact one of my cosplays has to be Garterbelt for a Masquerade skit, and I'm looking at other tan/dark skinned characters. ...a reoccurring trend I'm noticing in said colored female characters is the whole "lack of clothing because they're EXOTIC" trend. Dang it, Japan, just because I'm not PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW doesn't mean I wanna dress up like a hooker. D<

I'm just worried that by the time AnimeNEXT comes around, I won't be able to make it due to financial issues. I mean, I probably won't be cosplaying but I still wanna make it there.

Spent $65 on fabric for my WRGP Bruno top. XD And I have yet to buy the wig and other things. ^^;
OTL why did I have to forget my JoAnns coupon at home?!
I also bought some Got2B hairspray and spiking glue! :3 I hear it works wonders! (I also bought some Subway and cheetos :B) So like...80 bucks spent today. LOOOOL goodbye munnies.
I did, however, find a paycheck from my last job lying on my top shelf hiding inside one of my YuGiOh tins. $275. Needless to say, my day was made!

Guys. I'm in Oregon.

Yeah. Oregon.

I moved to another state.

Isn't that nice? Anyway, life is complete and utter insanity at the moment. Thus cosplays are delayed.

I had the best cup of coffee Evar in Oregon! But it's kinda wierd not being able to pump your own gas there. Pretty state though....keep us updated on how you're doing. If you don't we'll have to sell our souls to smexy demons who will hunt you down and trap you in frilly hoop skirt prison with crazy dress girl

Greed wants me to work on him... Had a sudden inspiration to get all the other cosplay's done today. lol Prussia is now done and I'm almost done with Oz's main collar. I also got more material to work on Chibi!Romano, since I messed up on the sleeves. I dislike puffy sleeves...

I really need to get started on Chibi!America soon. I have only one month left!! GAH!!! T__T Still need to do another pair of Magnet Headphones too... *sweatdrop*

My cosplay's for next month, are all done though and have been for months.... ?why do all my friends ask me last minute? T_T

Excellent news: my uncle is still interested in painting Haunted! Especially once he saw the unfinished base I'm still working on. Which is good news, since I don't know a thing about painting.

Meet up was pretty awesome. Didn't alter my eyebrows, but my basic Fem!America test run turned out to be a success. 8D

My boots got really muddy because of the rain, though. orz
