Currently debating on whether or not I'll be cosplaying for Halloween or not. I don't have work that day so it's possible, but I suppose I'm a bit uneasy about having to wear a costume on a long bus ride to campus by myself. Not to mention none of my costumes are particularly simple... and getting Fluttershy finished by then is highly unlikely. OTL Last year I wore Amu, but that costume is kind of uncomfortable as well as a bit of a walking heat-stroke. And I guess I sorta retired her for now.

Starting to freak out about the convention being 2 weeks away and I've still been unable to fix my wavy/curled wigs. They are supposed to be straight but packing them in a suitcase traveling back from America to England has made them all in random sticky out directions.

Can I start freaking out about my wig getting here in the next few days?

I'm giving it another week to get here before I just file a paypal dispute. Everything else is finished but that final piece. The wig.

No Wig=No Ritsuka

Maybe this belongs in the rant thread? I dunno....But, it is SO weird to me that the wigs for cosplays look so freakin FAKE! So far, I've cosplayed with a hair color that can be had in real life, but as someone that actually wears real weave (fake hair, whatever you want to call it), the quality of most of the cosplay wigs that I see make me think about the really shiny, $10 a bag braiding weave that won't stay in your braids for longer than two weeks. LOL, I know eventually I'll wear a cosplay wig in a weird color that they don't make human hair for, but it's really odd to me.

I'll get over it but I had to put that out there since that's what I was thinking about.

..I'm poorer than I expected. I only have $40. Whaaat? ;A; Okay, yeah, no demon Ririchiyo for me right now..q-q I wonder if she'll still have it by the time I have more. Maybe~
Oh well. Bright side, very favorite costume seller sells the winter uniform for Inu x Boku. This means, I could get both Karuta and Ririchiyo's wigs and be both if I get it! Since I've been kinda wanting to be both.
Gah. Inu x Boku is kinda my new life. I can't help it, it's been so long since I've gotten really into an anime like this and it's perfect: not so long it's a chore to watch, quirky but also pulls your heartstrings in every direction...gah q-q <3 Yup yup my next two cosplays will be cute loli girls and I have no regrets.

Bought a bottle of fray check at WalMart...along with a bunch of other stuff since it was in a no-sew kit. -_- Never thought I would buy liquid stitch...But anyway at least now I can finish up the shawl. Or some of it since I need to wait for my second set of trim to arrive to get it done.

So....

Today I had the sudden urge to start dancing "PonPonPon" while at the supermarket. I almost did, too. I guess it was 'cause I was so excited I got some more things for the cosplay I am working on and can't wait for the flash mobs at AX coming up. I've been thinking about dancing to the songs I have to learn in the cosplays I plan to be in during the mob.

For "PonPonPon", Mayushii (Steins;Gate).
For "Gangnam Style", Vocaloid Meiko [default] or Kyoko Sakura (Madoka Magica).

I tried on my blue morph suit that's going to be used for my Lord Raptor cosplay. It fits great. It's just a shame that I'm only going to use the upper half for the cosplay

I actually cannot wait to cosplay Yuno Gasai in 2014.
I love her character so much!! And my friends are currently watching Mirai Nikki so I keep saying "Yukkii" in Yuno's voice whenever I talk to them =3 Muahahah I must be annoying.

And I really wanna -fully- try on my Rin cosplay that I am wearing for Halloween!!

Ffffffffff-
I feel like a derp. But there are these two cosplayers on Facebook that I talk to every now and again that I kinda flail a bit on the inside when they talk to me or say they want to see future costumes of mine, because they're cosplayers I really look up to and get inspired by.
I feel like I'm no longer a newbie :'D Yeeee~

Oh I love that feeling. ^_^ It is like, "You want to little me? I am not worthy!" XD

Finally I have the trim pinned down to the shawl. Didn't end up sewing it down for now since I need to edges to dry. Still so excited to have the end in sight!

Got a replacement for the Faust makeup I lost as well as some belts for Kurama. Now I'm pretty much set for Halloween, I just need a purple shirt and some assorted jewelry.

I love being a bird nerd. I just spent a straight hour designing the wing structure for an OC of mine. I ended up comparing birds in my field guide's wing shapes, and then their flight habits with how my character's would be, the wingspan versus body length, etc. Time well spent. And I now know that I essentially need albatross or tern-styled wings. No tombstone-shaped pieces of cardboard with feathers for me. I want something that could ostensibly work with regards to physics (though I figured it'd also make sense to write my character in as having hollow birdlike bones to reduce a lot of extra weight. The human body is REALLY not designed for flight.)
