Purchased the kokoshnik (a traditional Russian head-dress) Anastasia wears whilst singing Once Upon a December.

belt buckle, studs, and my actual con tickets. Decided to splurge this year on a deluxe pass for my local con because I want to get some swag, dammit.

Linen to use as an embroidery ground for SCA garb, a ton of embroidery floss, some more Victorian patterns, grommets, zipties for boning, and the makings of an 1890's shirtwaist (nice white cotton, some ruffled trim and pretty faux-pearl buttons).

Bought a toy machine gun and a real utility belt with pouches for my brother's secret cosplay (even he doesn't know he's doing it! LOL).

Since I am perpetually dissatisfied with my options for boot fabric, I have purchased yet ANOTHER contender for Ciri's boots, but this one may be the winner as it is a nice colour (not too yellow/brown/orange). However, it does have a bit of a sheen to it, which I am hoping I can dull down by roughing it up/painting it a little. I also got some more of the fabric I used for my pants as it was 2 for 1 (and I am considering redoing my pants and gloves, pants because I don't like the fit, and gloves because I prefer this material over what I already used for my gloves).

I am the queen of the redo it seems.

I finally found some fabric for Audrey II. Joann had some St. Patrick's Day fabric that was just what I was looking for.

Bought some brown leather colored vinyl, matching thread, some heavy duty and stretch needles, and a small invisible zipper for my cosplays. I am thinking I may need to get another zipper.

Fabric for Sole Survivor

I recently hit up the Pleather shops at the fabric market and got the 3 colors I needed for Sole Survivor. The gold was the hardest to find. I almost gave up because it was so cooollllddd! :0
Here's my Facebook live video that I took while waiting for the shopkeeper to get back ;p https://www.facebook.com/cosplaymand...4155797650602/

and a pic of the fabric
https://www.facebook.com/cosplaymand...24161530983362

and a terrible pic I took after I finally found the gold. The color looks awful in this light, but trust me, it's perfect!

For a few days ago I bought WW2 repro collar tabs for my to-be-updated and historically-more-accurate Prussia (Gilbert Beilschmidt) cosplay from Hetalia. I can't wait to get the costume in my hands! Yes, I'm a history buff so I always try to aim at more historically accurate costumes (while keeping that sweet costume-y balance) when applicable character-wise #nerd

Just pushed go on my Amazon order which'll include my shirt, shoes, tennis paddle, and some accessories. Also ordered my glasses (and a second pair for work) when I got home so I could confirm my prescription; since I actually need prescription glasses I might as well get ones I can use as spares. Aaaand then I was able to order my wig since Arda's site apparently doesn't work fully at my work. So it's been a big day for spending, but now when I get home for vacation I should have some stuff waiting for me.

Just booked a serger lesson so I can finally stop being intimidated by it (and see if it needs fixing), so I'm going to count that as a purchase.
