Accidentally talked myself into a photoshoot with a retired costume. :') Oops.
Good thing I still have everything I need.

So it looks like I might be going to Japan Day in NYC this year because it's when I'm still in college and my friend who always goes wants to go despite the fact that finals start the next day for us. Now to debate whether I want to wear an old cosplay or debut Rolling Girl Gumi or one of my other ones early...

And I might have convinced my other non-cosplay, non-anime friend to come to a con. ^_^. Well to take pictures since she needs to build a portfolio but still! Progress! XD

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND A SIMPLE GREEN BUTTON UP.
WHY ARE THE SIMPLE THINGS ALWAYS SO MUCH HARDER TO FIND?!

Completely agree. X_X My question to find a simple no detail white dress has been in vain.

Yay!


I think my friends' cosplays stress me out than my own does. The friend that's cosplaying Chii just messaged me saying that she can't find her cheap Halloween long blonde wig for Chii and her Katja one won't work since it's three separate pieces. Although the con she's wearing it for is in May I'm all, "GAHHHH!" And I went online and found a bunch of cheap-ish long blonde wigs for her since I knew she was going to be low on money after buying Tifa's and Chii's outfit.

I just cut and hemmed a part of my secret cosplay, and it looks so nice. It feels good to have something turn out so awesome; I'd been getting really discouraged about cosplay as of late. Afraid I wouldn't be able to sew anything, or that I just wouldn't look good, etc.
(Now I just need to convince myself that I'll actually look decent in this secret cosplay, and we're good.)

In more exciting news, my boyfriend booked the room for Otakon, so it's something that's actually happening, which is so exciting! I'm composing a list of impressive cosplay to make to take with me to Baltimore this summer. x]

Grumble grumble...
Just discovered a massive flaw line in my fabric, that runs across... Oh, three of the five panels of my skirt. Don't have enough fabric to cut new ones, not to mention I only noticed after all the darts were sewn in. I suppose the only advantage is they more or less line up with one another....on the flat ironing board. No idea what it will look like once it's on an actual person.

I guess I now have to research Victorian trimmings....at knee length. *sigh*

THIS. THIS SO MUCH.

Took me FOREVER to find a simple blue sweater for Tintin, and then that turned out to be a mistake on the seller's part and they canceled the transaction. Finally found another one, but holy crap, what a pain.

Didn't get very far on my cosplay, thought I'd be stitching up most of the leotard, but realise that I would need to stitch in the sleeves first, so I spent a few hours drafting out the pattern and creating mock-ups. Can't do much from there, need to buy the trim, so hopefully the sleeves will be finished by the end of tomorrow, then I can successfully stitch up the leotard..

Puffy sleeve mock-ups are looking good!

Less than two weeks till Katsu, and I'm still debating... should I go full-out drag for swimsuit!Kotetsu and pack? Normally I don't, because when I'm crossplaying, I'm probably not wearing anything tight - or if I am, there are enough aspects to the costume that people probably aren't paying attention to the lack of a bulge. But this costume is super-tight and fairly simple, and I think it would be a nice touch... but I don't want to freak anyone out.

Already I'm planning on sports-taping myself to avoid cleavage (which is hard for me to get in costumes where I *want* cleavage - and now it shows up in a costume where I don't?), and experimenting with beard prosthetics instead of drawing the darned thing on repeatedly... also possibly not shaving my legs. XD I'm not doing any female cosplays that weekend anyway.

I was just thinking How I haven't been Kohaku in a while and then I did a photoshoot with him. Tonight I'm thinking "Geez, it's been forever since I've been Prince Ludwig..."

Does this mean it's time to break Lui out again? Must find my Hooker boots again now XD

Dress progress~ http://celia-rose.tumblr.com/post/17...tarted-working

I'm really tired, both of this project and from being up working on it until 5:30 because I couldn't sleep. But, damn, I'm proud of myself for how well my dress is turning out.
