Phew, found a way to speed up my cloak embroidery/embellishment a bit. In a long day today(about seven and a half hours, so, a full work day) I got ten of the 26 done. I have a few hours to work on it tomorrow before I leave for easter weekend, a full day next week (where I can almost certainly manage another ten done again), and most of the day before the con, to do the remaining thirteen and finish sewing it up. But still, yeesh. So much work to rush.

It looks like the SEES armband will not make it here in time for AB. T_T I mean, tomorrow is the last change but I'm not counting on it. Oh well...

Also, I'm a little bit worried that I haven't gotten locations to meet up with a couple of my photographers for AB. Or maybe they will send me the info tomorrow...hopefully.

Everyone's panicking over AB and I'm still a bad person for laughing about it.

Debating how I want to go about Neo's wig.

Wigisfashion has a bunch of wigs for $20 and less, but the shipping is crazy. For two wigs the total with shipping will be $58- not bad, I know, but I was raised on super tight finances so this sort of thing still freaks me out.

I think it's the best option, honestly. Two Arda wigs would cost $70 or more, plus the shipping. Cosplay.com's store isn't reliable, and Epiccosplay's long wigs aren't thick enough for my taste.

...

-sighs- I hate having a fear of spending money.

Have you looked at Matchwigs? They have free shipping.

I think this is the first time I've been ready for a convention. Granted I only made one costume for Wondercon and it was somewhat easy, but still. I want to bring another one but I'm not sure what to bring. Hmmm....

Though I'll be going to a con in a couple weeks, I'm already trying to plan to go to ColossalCon this year. I just heard about that con and it seems absolutely amazing.

For me, it's only a 5-6 hour drive. We would definitely need to find a hotel since my aunt who lives in Ohio is 2 hours from the city it's in. But other than that, it's totally feasible as long as long as my boyfriend and I can get the days off from work!

I checked them out. Buying two wigs there would end up being just as much from Wigisfashion with the shipping, so I'll probably just end up going with my first choice. Thank you for the suggestion, though.

I did realize I could buy a pink Arda wig and dye the brown section, though given my bad luck with dye... And then I'd have to figure out which color pink to get. xD

Ugh, I don't know. I'll figure it out.

Edit: Nevermind that. Arda doesn't have ANYTHING in stock, and the colors I like most/actually match don't exist in anything longer than a shoulder length. :/

Bakura is complete! (/*A*)/

But arda is completely out of stock? Crap that might explain why my wigs haven't shipped yet...even though they were listed as in stock :/...I haven't checked yet today...better check before I start flailing 8'D.

Yup, hasn't shipped yet...but they are still listed as in stock OTL.

And nope, no SEES armband for me for AB. Oh well... Whatever, I survived without it when I wore Minako in the past. This is the weirdest I've felt before a con. One second I'm excited and the next I'm all, "Meh, whatever." Really strange. Probably will hit tomorrow...maybe.

A lot of my friends are feeling that way about AB. One almost decided against going, but he ended up going because he already spent money on it.

I'm having the hardest time ironing my super wrinkled lightweight cotton fabric for Scarlett O'Hara's hoopskirt.

Put a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water in a spray bottle and use it on the fabric. Yeah it'll smell when you iron it but it works. The smell goes away after a bit don't worry

My childhood started playing on my iPod and reminded me how much I wanted to cosplay Tai and Wizardmon....Tai's hair still scares me wig styling wise so he'll probably have to continue waiting....which leaves Wizardmon....dear, dear Wizardmon...

-sigh-

In other news! I'm going to finally start the sewing for Ali and hopefully put a bigger dent in ibis hong Roun this weekend....since everyone is at sak...-mildly jelly-...also need to get my butt over to Lowes to get a few prop things.

I just remembered again why i hadnt thrown this old headset away, that wasnt working anyway. Reason: I still need it for my Hatsune Miku cosplay, since it looks just right.

Minor problem is that it insulates against outside noise very well, so actually wearing it might make me half deaf and not notice people talking to me or stuff like that.
