We're planning for college these couple of weeks, and my mom keeps telling me I need to get into costuming & fashion, so I am thinking about making some more original designs / characters to send to art competitions.

Soooo.... Wood glue turns out to NOT be the world's greatest sealer. It's cracked all over the place. Trying to patch it, but I may just have to switch to something else... AFTER spending the 30$ on two gallons >.<

Yay! My other wig has been shipped! Come to me my wig! Come to me!

And I figured out what Vocaloid song I want to cosplay from next, besides all the Gumi ones and Badbye. Witch by a whole bunch of Vocaloids. I think I'll do Luka's burning on the stake outfit since I can cheat and use the dress I'm making for Illusion Girl plus I can add wings to this one! I've always wanted to tackle wings.

The con isn't for two months, how can I be having con dreams already? DX And why am I dreaming about a different con that isn't even until November?

I remember that in the dream I was told by the cosplay coordinator to get my costume on because I was going to be next, and I realized I had entered the contest with no costume! So I ran to my work room and tried to find half-finished cosplay pieces to put on.

Hate organza. Hate it SO MUCH. Tried to get my roll hem foot to work yesterday (never used one before) and at least with the organza it refused to cooperate. I guess I should be glad I only need a small petticoat for Therese ...

Still agonising over the brocade choice. T_T Why so indecisive, self?

(Let's just hope today's initial chiropractor visit doesn't end with "no sewing for you!".)

I know it's unrealistic for me to set the time frame for my jacket to be finished by the end of next week... but I need to do it as soon as possible because my wings are gonna be crazier in design....

When one does not have a cosplay project to work on, it feels weird ;_;

I got my wig for Lucas today. I would need to style it obviously if I use that one in the end, but I am not sure about my feelings on that shade of blonde.

Gah I am a horrible blonde.

I think the wig I got was a little too short :|

I've spent the past 2 hours researching prop making and am fairly confident that with a good (okay, with a HUGE) amount of patience, I can do it. I have patience issues when it comes to me actually DOING things; I've barely enough patience to sew as it is.
.....I think that's partially a lie. Or maybe completely a lie. I have patience, it's just that when I get frustrated......that's the issue. I have frustration issues.

LOL anyway.
I think I've got my work cut out for me. After Otakon, I think, my next (huge) projects are:
Skyward Sword- Link
Twilight Princess- Zelda
Skyward Sword- Fi
Eternal Sonata- Serenade

I really want to give this prop stuff a try. Link's shield(s) and sword(s) and other weapons and heart pieces/containers and yay fun stuff. And Serenade's staff, and Fi's arm-flap things....I'm really excited because after spending this much time researching, I'm....really strangely motivated. I've never really made props! Discounting Sakura; I think that was the last time I really made a prop.
I'm determined to make good Link/Zelda/Fi/Serenade cosplays.

Alright I really need to get working on my research and homework and stuff so that I can get all of my Anime Expo cosplays done on time, with minimal rushing and maximal sleep.

My first attempt at using a dremel with EVA foam mats was a failure. I thought I had the hang of it down with the scrap pieces, but then I nearly gouged the main piece beyond repair. I don't know if hand sanding is possible with this foam, but I'm going to find out soon I guess.

My wig for Haruka came in! I'm staring at it now and the color seems slightly too orange for her. It looks a bit like what people use for Ren but that could just be me being picky. Well I'm going to have to make it work no matter what so yeah...
