I was just reviewing a selfie I took as Meiko a few weeks back and looking at my old Meiko photos... And as I compare and contrast, I have to admit, I'm amazed. The old photos, I wasn't wearing any makeup, because this was back when I was a sort of nooblet who flat out refused to wear makeup. Then I'm looking at the selfie, and going "WOW this looks so much better." And it wasn't much, foundation, some light blush and eyeliner, but it makes a WORLD of difference in photos. Oh past self... if only I could go back in time and show you the difference. ;A;

But tomorrow... TOMORROW. I'm getting lining for Vaati's capelet as well as ALL THE EMBROIDERY SUPPLIES. Actual embroidery will probably not take place until way later in the week, though, as I have a kanji quiz to study for. I couldn't want to learn an easy written language like Italian, nope, it had to be friggin Japanese... Then after that I actually need to put together the tunic's outer shell before I attach the second layer. But hey, actual sewing's gonna get done too. PRODUCTIVITY.

Been wanting to do another damn Organization XIII member (Kingdom Hearts, for those that don't know), but I sold my Org coat because "goddamnit that thing is too hot!!!!" But I might get another one commissioned..I miss it too much..

Anyway, I LOVE Larxene. She is freaking awesome..I never got the chance to cosplay her in the coat..Well, Here I come with another version..I designed a Lolita-esque (though I don't call it Lolita itself, it just has similar traits) dress for her..It's awesome, and almost finished!! IIt got too hot in my room though so I had to stop lol

Wow. Knightrokon may be the closest convention I've ever attended. It's super close compared to Anime Festival Orlando.

Caving in and buying ONE more gun prop for Lara Croft. It's her weathered assault rifle. So I'll have a total of three guns now for the outfit (shotgun, rifle, pistol), which I think is good. I would do her bow and arrows, but ACen doesn't allow loose arrow props and I couldn't fit a bow in my luggage anyway. XD I'll be debating whether or not I should get her climbing axe...

I set up a sewing table in my room yesterday. All I had before was a desk that I used for doing my schoolwork and sewing and I was really tired of cutting fabric on the floor. So I found a long table no one was using and put it in my room and now I am happy because I have my own little cosplay setup I call it "Cosplay Atelier". idk that probably isn't all that creative.

I don't mean to be advertising or anything but I have a coat I can sell you, if you're interested. You can send me your measurements so I can check and see if it would fit you, and then I can send pics and we can go from there. It's doing nothing but taking up room in my closet right now >.<

Even though it's a bit too soon to think about who I'm cosplaying next year, I've already made up mind it'll be Poochyena. And I designed a gijinka for it that I really like. I can already see myself using a bunch of fabric paint for it. <3 Also since I was extra good this weekend my mom's gonna order my wig finally.

Currently sewing and cutting fabric in my mom's bathroom. I'm making a dress for my hoopskirt, and I really don't have the room for that in my room, but...this is actually really convenient.

Only room in the house with a big-ass mirror, the counters are the perfect height for me to stand at and sew, there's a crapload of floor space, and only that: I don't have to hear my parents screaming about the Superbowl like I'd be able to if I were in my bedroom.

So, I'm looking for a bit of help deciding something. I'm looking to make a cosplay of a character(I won't say what just yet) who carries something called a rosary. Basically, a ridiculously long string of beads. I found something that might work, but I need an opinion on it.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Plastic-Faux...em3f1fd2d3 03

Would something like this work for a rosary? Or, would I be better off finding a container of giant beads and stringing them myself? And if THAT'S the case, anyone have any ideas where I can find said container of large beads?

I don't think those would really work for a rosary. Your best option would probably be to buy one as they come in many different shapes and sizes and aren't too expensive depending on where you look and what you want.

I agree with Dagan. Those won't really work for rosary beads as they are too small.

My motivation to work on Anna has plummeted to rock bottom. >_> I really just don't want to work on her. :/ Dang it! There is still a ton of embroidery left to do and I still need to buy a wig for her but I just...don't want to. Ugh. >_<

Hmmm...then what size should I look for then? I've seen rosary beads on Amazon and eBay, but I've no idea what size they are. Say like, if I'm trying to pull off an Okami cosplay using the Rosary type weapon instead of the Reflector or Glaive, what size rosary should I look for? I've been looking for the last two weeks and I found that last link I posted. The length was more than what I needed and I think it said something like 10mm size beads. If that's not large enough, what would you suggest?

I need to plan out a proper sewing schedule for these cosplays. I only managed to sew half of my kigurumi this weekend; granted I spend half the time ripping out seams and resewing pieces.

The real issue is that I need to not be so afraid of cutting fabric. It terrifies me every time even when I have proper measurements.
