I've waited around 3 weeks now for my wig to ship. Where's my confirmation? Makes me wonder about purchasing in the marketplace ever again :/

Bummed about not getting my cosplay done for Detour but at least I should be able to debut it, later, with a weapon instead of without...

Note to self: remember to pick up a glue stick today to practice making Sheryl eyebrows.

I really wish the characters I like in Ore no Imouto were older. :I I really like Kuroneko in the [True Route] episodes, and I'd like to cosplay as Kiririn or Ayase. But, they're all middle schoolers.

FACE Y U NO LOOK YOUNGER.

Well, the jacket sold for $600. No way in hell did I have that much money or would be willing to spend that much on a jacket unless I won the lottery.

Finally pre-reg'd for Wonder Con (two days before the con, haha). Got a chemistry report to write today before I'll allow myself to work on anything cosplay-related. But no promises I'll get that far because it's opening day of baseball, and in my house that's a celebration equivalent to Christmas.

Why must I ruin every wig I touch?

It's all frizzy! I thought I did the right thing by using hot water to straighten it, but apparently just combing the fibers can kink them? It didn't help that I didn't take the pigtails out before I doused it. Then I tried to detangle it using mass amounts of detangler, and now it's sticky and sickly-sweet smelling.

Now I think I can revive it to usability if I cut off the bottom...but it seems like such a waste!

Also, because there's no room to straighten it inside, I used my front step...and it fell into a dirty pile of leaves.

I just finished making my first season Sailor Moon brooch and front bow. And you know what? They look AWESOME. Way better than I thought they would.

I'm so excited. And I just can't hide it.

Srsly, rewet wig and let it hang on wig stand until dry. Do not touch it until it's dry. But be sure to rinse out all the detangler. While it's drying, run to the store and pick up some Motions spray sheen and conditioner. When the wig is dry spray lightly with motions and gently start detangling from the bottom up. Once untagged, remove the pig tails and repeat wetting process to straighten.

Ordered my Pompadour wig! I love Amphigory's selection. Their shipping charges, less so, but what can you do?

Not that we need xkcd to tell us this, but package tracking makes you crazy.

So.... as it would seem, as I was throwing ideas and jokes with my brother, apparently sewing is like a cloth puzzle that you make the pieces and don't realize how big of a screw [F**k] up you made until well into the game.

Anyhow, the patch is looking awesome having used pins to put it into place. It's looking awesome!
