I got my Celina jacket in the mail Monday! I was gonna post earlier but I was under the weather so I didn't bother. It's great. I'm also planning on wearing it to the re-release of Yugioh The Movie when it hits theaters later this month (hopefully it's a lot warmer, if not I'll just be wearing a fandom t-shirt).

I just needed to sit down and focus.

Finished cutting out all the pieces for the liner of the jacket. Also put in the second sleeve and added a hem to the sleeve cuffs. Now to add more sequins and print out the buttons, then it's ready for fiber optics!... Now to find a small yet powerful flashlight to power said fiber optics.

Ahh my Celina bow came in the mail ! I love it! Looks like there's nothing to worry about. Just can't be too sure about cosplay sites, however everything went smoothly. Tried on what I had and it looks really great; I'll get to posting photos this weekend, needed some much needed sleep since I didn't get much rest last night.

Was going to post some progress pics last night, however I'm not sure what it is with me during the time the sun starts setting o.o'. I have some mental block when it comes to taking photos during that time. Probably the lackluster light. I didn't get free time to post any photos since I had to clean up our basement. I'll post them tomorrow afternoon after school.
And speaking of progress, it looks like I have to scrap Shay from my lineup . My funds were a bit scattered for some time, and long story short I only have money for Celina; possibly replacing Shay with Rin. So I'll have money to continue with Rin with have I have. I guess it's not a total loss, but Shay is a character I really identify with and would've been fun to be running around with his signatures moves and whatnot. I like Rin too, and still not a total loss either, but Shay for me is the guy, y'know?

Sequins are in. Not a lot but a subtle amount. Liner is in and that leaves the bottom hem to be finished. My brother order me something called EL wire in addition to fibre optics. I am going to glow!

Now I need warm weather.

FINALLY got a massive amount of progress done. Brigitte's shirt, gloves, and toolbag are pretty much done save for some weathering and sealing (when it warms up outside). I just got her overalls in the mail this week so I'll be dying them tonight! (I got them from Dickie's Canada as they were on sale for $40, wish I knew they were coming from just outside town, I would've picked em up instead of paying near $10 for shipping).

Sonico is going smoothly, FINAL mockup was done Wednesday night, headphones are done for ONE, and the other will be after I dye the fur. Leg warmers are all sewn and need dying. Still have to sew the tails and make final bodysuits.

Hopefully I can start on Dovahkiin. Had to scrap Widowmaker due to lack of motivation and all the particular pieces I wanted for her were $$$ so she'll have to wait. I have most of the supplies already for Dragonborn so we'll see what I can conjure up in about a month lol.

Hem is finished and sewn in a back pocket for my electronics. Sewn in one of the EL wires in (tis awesome), one more to go and then the fibre optics. Sword still needs sealing.

My brother decided that he wants a different design for Moltres (#+&$!!!!!) and that hasn't been started yet.

Abigail corset is finally done! I just need different laces (ones I have are too short) and a bit of elastic or spandex at the hip gores (left them open for better fit on my big hips, and now I realize it looks a bit funny that way).
And then I need to do her wig, hairbow, choker, weird sweater-vest-dress thing, and maybe a belt.

Elliot for the boyfriend, I'm still finishing mockups. But at least we're going to Toronto to buy fabric next week!

Nice to see you last night!!!

How difficult are grommets to learn? I want to try it for a future project (Belle's yellow gown).

I have to get my Zapdos decals printed/cut and ironed on. I want to add more details but I haven't figured out what yet. I think the front is boring, but it's very clean and crisp so I am not sure what I can add to it.

Super easy to hammer in, but SUCH a pain in the butt. Lots of hammering and noise.

Took a little longer than expected, but here it is: http://ablackblossom.tumblr.com/post...f-celina-d-the
My progress of Celina. Took a while thanks to home life, but oh well. As I've said before, Shay is out, but I'm decided to put Rin into the lineup. I'm not sure what version I'm doing just yet, but most likely it'll be from something I already have or something I can get that's fairly inexpensive. Back to Celina, just need the wig and I'll be done!

Edit:

Less than a month to go, we can do it!

Welp, I'm behind..... I know this wasn't going to be a good month for cosplay but a bit of family emergency didn't help for time either. So frazzled still from it (grandam is still hospital being monitored) but back to cosplay work today.

Rose Quartz
Sword [-] (Painting one thin cheap craft paint layer at a time....)
Sheild [-] (making the rim for the dome and waiting for warm weather for spray paint temp)
Wig []
Dress [-] (testing fabrics and sewing methods)
Shoes [X] I have sandals that will fit in blush pink, but she's barefoot. lol
