Uber worried the PERFECT fabric for two costumes I'm making (Rise and Protaganist from Persona 4) will be GONE by Saturday.

Jo Ann has, for once, black/white houndstooth patterned fabric. But I've been told it's seasonal x_x GAH.

It's either gone for good or on clearance now. It's all $14.99 it better not be on clearance yet, I have coupons!

I keep dipping my fabric into spots of fabric paint I have lying around. crap. Oh well because I should have gone with the same color ANYWAY so it's all good.

But I really hate lazy cosplayers. Don't go asking for help with patterns unless you've looked first yourself. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to help you until you've tried yourself.

Hooray!

Lab coats are fun. I haven't done any cosplays yet that involve them, but I'm gonna need to make/buy a bunch for an original project I'm working on.

Gonna bite the bullet and start putting together the weaving for the gauntlets today. This is the part I'm most paranoid about because if I mess up like I did in the mock-up I'll be wasting a lot of fabric. Not like I don't have extra, but I'd still rather not go through measuring and cutting it all again.

Once that's done, I'll attach the weaving to the base, turn up the edges, and attach the laces.

Wish me luck, everybody.

Because of a random, and very annoying, freeway closure due to construction, I didn't get home from class until 11pm; therefore, I did not get to cut out and sew Bianca's vest. I am glad I made the pattern earlier in the day. I will be going to get a bucket to use to dye the vest and snaps to close it with. I might go to look at tummy shirts tomorrow so the shirt fits better. I had used a type of bottom weight for the shirt, which is a fitted shirt, so it's a tad too tight...

I hate you wig, I hate you bunny ears. Why couldn't you both co-operate?

Basically, I tried stitching some bunny ears to the wig but ended up all floppy. Now I'm going to have to use a headband to support them which I really didn't want to use - but I have no other choice. So I spent two hours stitching a pile of crap and now I'm in an "annoyed" mood :| I could've used that time to cut and style the wig.

Going into a slight panic with the con nearly a month away! Going to finish drafting up the dimensions and parts necessary for the wings...

Slight disappointment in this one manga I read as again, my 'ship got sunk...

I finally got out to Joanns to get the fabric for a skirt I'm making for RenFest. Unfortunately, I am not working on said skirt because I have been making an army of plushies. Why are plushies so darn fun to make?

In other news, I only have two more weeks until I get my birthday money. *happydance*

Gungrave

I've been watching this new anime called Gungrave and I really love Brandon Heat. I wanna cosplay him, but 1. Almost nobody would probably know who I was and that's kinda sad and 2. I don't know which outfit of his I should do. Do I go with Street Brandon or Sweeper Brandon? Both are equally smexy! *sigh*One is harder to do then the other, but I won't let something like that stop me.

Grrr. It look like my theory may actually work, but the problems are these: 1) the beads I have are too big. I'll need to go with actual seed beads if I want this to be uber-overdone and whatnot, and 2) maybe it's just the hoop I was using (which probably wasn't the best), but the fabric kept trying to loosen up and shift. Or is that just something organza does no matter what? I need to remember what the difference between organza and chiffon is for this -headdesk-

You're going to Decepti-Kon? I've heard it's going to be a disaster there. I'd like to hear if it wasn't so.


Totally did not just add 15+ cosplays to my "to-do" list in the past three days. Even worse is I've agreed to help my four friends with their various costumes |D
