@inoli--yes yes, of course I'd have to come along (provided I get things to work out as mentioned above). Have to keep an eye on you or you just get into all sorts of trouble.

@seven--yeaaaah nice pics!!!!
And I am not planning any gatherings for AX, other than trying to get it work out to meet up with you and friends for JK, so my costume plans are very flexible right now. (And outside of the obligations around Masq. of course.)
RE: the photoshoot, I am not clear what weekend you are planning that shoot, so I don't know if I would or would not be out of town. Although as mentioned, at over 2 hours south "in town" is not exactly the right phrase either. )

myalchod: Sakura con is the last weekend in March next time huh? That might work out better for me. It's a little easier financially if I can get a few months between the cons I go to. (I am trying to cut back on the cons as well... so expensive...) I didn't see any JK cosplayers while I was there this last weekend, but I might have missed them. It would be pretty cool to have a big group there though for next year.

Cosplay Update: Well it's not really an update, but now that Sakura con is over, I am really going to try focusing on getting Yoko worked on. I am hoping I will have some time this weekend to wonderflex my armor. Here's hoping!

That's my guess for Sakuracon timing next year, based on it being over Easter weekend historically -- but I don't know that with any certainty and haven't gone looking at dates. (As for not seeing JK folks there -- I'm not sure if they were at con this year, but I know they've been there in the past. It spawned an entertaining story about how we only got recognised when Keiki showed up -- and they STILL couldn't figure out who Youko was at first! XD She was rather bemused and put out all at once.)

Good luck with finding the time for armour-work!

@Inoli: Thanks!! As for the wig..I bought it so long ago that I can no longer remember where I got it from. :/ But, I do believe that this wig is almost the same!

@Seifer-sama: Will let you know! I will be at AX for the '4th of July' weekend and then from there we'll start moving up to San Fran, stopping at locations along the way ^^ As for the pictures, yes, the location was perfect!!

Ganbatte on your Youko!!

@kimu: Thank you! I will talk to my friend to see when she's available and check on my other gatherings. Most of them haven't picked times yet, but I will try to get them organized. Let me know if you happen to have a day preference!

As for the photo road trip, I would probably be in San Fran around the 5th-7th.

@ myalchod: I did try to check the Sakura con site, but of course they only have the dates for this year. We probably won't see the new dates until closer to next year. I am really hoping it is at the end of March though, that would be nice for me. And that's a bummer you were only recognized until Keiki showed up! Ha ha! I guess that speaks for who the fans really like. And thanks for the well wishes on the armor! Here's hoping. I really wish I could skip this part and just go straight to the painting, but alas. :P

@ Seven: Okay well I will see what I can do then. I would really love to be there at least one of the days you are in San Fran. I am thinking if I do go it will most likely be the 7th, just fyi. And where did you do your photo shoot at anyway?? And thank you too for the well wishes on Yoko. I am excited to start working on her again.

@Seifer-sama: You mean you'd like to go to the tea garden the 7th, or that is when you're leaving the area? Lol, sorry, I'm a little mixed up!

The Shoukei photos were taken in D.C. while the Sakura were in bloom. <3

@ Seven: Those pics are fantastic! Wish I could get up with you at Zenkaikon, but it's like the weekend before I fly out to San Jose, and I'm sure I'll have a ton of last-minute stuff to do. ;_; WE WILL HAVE TO FIGURE SOMETHING OUT.

My current dilemma with Rakushun isn't the costume at all, it's the dang leaf. XD I can't figure out how to stop it from twisting around when I hold it! I can't remove the casing over the "stem" because that is what is keeping the tension in the leaf itself. (It's this thing, for them what don't know XD) Any suggestions? I'm thinking maybe another "stem" thing taped to it with gardening tape or something...

@tatterpixie: I'm working with some photogs right now and if you are up for it, we can totally set up an out of con shoot on a weekend or something. Totally want pics with you, if you are up for it!

Hmmm, that does seem annoying...if I happen to think of any ideas, I'll post 'em. :\

@ Seven: Sorry for the confusion. If we could do the shoot on the 7th that would be the best for me. ^^; As for your photo shoot location, totally perfect and I bet it was a blast.

@ tatterpixie: Hmm I wish I knew what to suggest to help you out with the leaf... I am kind of stumped though... but if I think of anything I will let you know. Sorries.

@Tatterpixie: Apoxie! I don't know how the stem connects to the leaf, but if there is any kind of hinge or connection point, hit it with a clear apoxie, especially inside any crevices. Some good, five-minute apoxie will hold anything!

And, in other news; My embroidery for my secret cosplay is done! I have a small point I need to fix that was revealed, but other than that, the outfit is ready for its final details! Painting, frog ties, piping, and clasps! I went shopping with Inoli this last Tuesday, and she helped me find this really pretty, gold metal frog for my cosplay, it's awesome! After this, it's time for wig-styling! Good thing the work season is just about over.

@ Tenkage: The problem is the sheath -- there's a fabric sheath that slips over the stem piece with a velcro closure at the bottom; that pulls on the fabric of the leaf and tensions the whole thing into place. The stem slides around inside that sheath and the whole leaf spins when I'm holding it. XD And I have to be able to disassemble it for travel! ^__^

Also, so excited to see what your mystery cosplay is! ^___^

@ Seven: That sounds awesome! It may be awhile, since I still have major work to do on the Rat, but that just gives everything time to turn nice and green and gorgeous. ^___^

@ Tenkage-chan: Congrats! That is very exciting. I am so looking forward to seeing this costume!!

Update: Not really, but it;s the weekend today and I am so looking forward to getting something done! I have my bf helping me with the wonderflex and I am thinking I might start something easy at first, like the skirt or the cape... who knows?? :P

@Seifer-sama: Hmmm, the 7th might be cutting it too close. Our driver lives in LA and will most likely want to be heading south by then. :/ Grr, I hope we can make something work!!

@Tenkage-chan: Ah, ganbatte! And I also cannot wait to see your finished Filia! <3

@tatterpixie: Let me know when you'd be up for something! Then I we can find the best photog for our needs and plan out exactly what we'd want shot. I'll pull out both my Shoukei and Youko!

Rubber bands.....It's going to sound odd but at the same time Tatterpixie try rapping a few rubber bands on the base of the "stem" before you put the "sheath" over it. it'll be a tight fit but I'm thinking that perhaps the rubber band will be 1: something for the fabric and your hand to hold onto and 2: small enough to allow it to function properly and still be taken down for travel. could also try it on the outside. I'll see if I can think up a few more solutions.

Tee hee Tankage XD, it was fun shopping wish my brain would have been more focused ;( sorry!

the irony.... heading to a little college event today. was tempted to wear "king" robes for En but meh slipped into Travelling for the fun of it. Sadly I cant promise pictures, in fact I'm pretty sure I'll be the one behind the camera all day ^^;;;

Go Seifer-sama go!! have fun with the wonderflex! I've had a blast working with it any time I have. it's amusing what you can make from it... armor, sword hilts casts for Nyokai who try to blender their fingers...

@ Seven: Hmm bummer. Well maybe we can meet somewhere else instead. I am down south near Morro Bay before the 7th for my family reunion, eh, but I don't know anywhere to photograph near there. ^^;

@ Inoli: Thanks! I DID get some work done this weekend. My grieves and gauntlets are wonderflexed and I started working on the flowers for my hairpin. I have to wait until the clay dries, then I can sand it. Oh it's so wonderful to see some progress finally!! But yes wonderflex is a super cool material, it IS amazing the things you can make from it.
