Hey thanks weather for not letting me do much with Miriam's sword since I kind of need the outside to do my sanding, and it's going to be raining for the rest of the week. Hoo boy.

Fanime is now 2 1/2 months away so it's now feeling like a crunch time before the crunch time for me! The first wave of the gatherings list also got uploaded, so the only thing certain in my line up would be Ahri for Saturday. Miriam would probably be for Sunday or Friday depending on who and when I can get photoshoots for either of my cosplays done (I could be Ahri for Friday or Sunday again for all I know).

I might end up doing the Cosplay Ball after all, though I'll just wear a simple formal version of Miriam and kind of just keep it lax throughout the evening.

I don't know why Pinky Paradise decided to ship my contacts from Kuala Lumpur to Calgary Via Germany, instead of just going across the Pacific, since it is a 4000 km further distance to go over the entire rest of the planet. They have just arrived in Montreal now though, so hurray! They're in the country! You know. The other side of the country.

Found the neatest fabric today. I was trying to find a nice black satin brocade for my overbust, and I stumbled upon this heavy black satin with a blue sheen to it, looked almost double-sided (smooth satin on top, a soft twill-like weave in blue on back), and even weirder, it was COTTON. And CHEAP AS HELL. Like, WHAT. I have NEVER seen cotton fabric like that. I'm going to have to burn test a bit of that sucker to see if the label was exaggerating.

^ Please let us know the results, because I'm curious now too!

Whooooo boy I'm in for a rough next two weeks if I wanna get everything done in time for AB. Doesn't help that I've just been exhausted this past week... sitting in bed now making sure I have all the relevant cosplay tasks on my to-do list, and knocking out the half dozen 3D models I need for prop parts.

edit: google also says Satin twill apparently.

So I still need more practice sewing in snaps. Since that was the only part of my first 100% scratchbuilt costume that failed today.

Yeah, I called it that because "well, it's satin on this side and twill on that side... I'll just call it "satin twill" for now!"
Still, I've NEVER seen that kind of stuff made out of cotton. That's my biggest intrigue!

Had to e-mail Fm-Anime for progress on the bow, because for some reason I can't access my account page to see it. Speaking of hair bows, Arda Wigs recently compensated me Maple Coins because of something to do with redeeming my coupon for a colour sample? So that helps me out a lot for my future purchase of my Shay and Celina wig.
And progress for Celina's bracelet is going extremely smooth; overall progress I might add . Her bracelet is 95% done, I just need to stick a little something in the hole where I stick the 'loop' because it's very loose. So it doesn't hold the outer ring like it should but I'll figure it out.

So I've decided that I'm going to wear Merida to Grape City con. I really want decent photos of the cosplay especially after adding more wefts to my wig. I need to fix the quiver and bow, and do a couple touch ups to the dress, but I'm excited to be her again. :3

I didn't have a tape measure on hand, but I saw the perfect color/style coat on ebay for Super Cheapo with 5 minutes left and bought it on impulse before knowing for sure if it would fit. I got it yesterday and it's literally perfect.

Very interesting morning I had xD. I asked my drawing teacher if she could take a look at my Celina bracelet (well I actually rephrased it since I figured she wouldn't know what it was really for, and since I used sculpey for part of it I consider it falling under 3D work and she's also sculptor). And as if recognizing where I was going with this, she got that it was for cosplay xD! So it was a nice surprise that she also does cosplay too .
I really asking for some feedback (and help) on the bracelet because of the 3D work and waiting 'til the end of the next class to get it for obvious reason but wow!

Going for the fabric-paint-on-tights method for the leg tattoos. Given how the dress is cut, I'll just forgo the ones on the chest and back and paint a couple of the tattoos on my arms which will do fine. Made a couple templates to use at least. Both for the tights and just for when they're ready for the tattoo paper.

Creature Cast is now available in pints!! Took the plunge to order that immediately and see what I can do with it as a sealer.

Yep, it was indeed all cotton! It lit up like a candle when I burned a snip to test. This stuff is seriously nice (and breathable, because cotton! My overbust'll be nice and comfy now), I want to go buy more but I don't know what I'd use it for...
