when it comes to that point, thats when your not really enjoying cosplaying, or at least thats my opinion. I used to think about those things but I calm down because of my brother. He had a point, I mean, if I was fixated on things like perfection and stuff I'll start to lose my interested and do poorly. Plus stressing myself wouldn't help me at all. So now I take my time (even if its almost close to the con), and I also go back to tutorials and youtube videos since its good to tweak your skills.
I got a few stuff to sew and I gotten good advices from this site that I completed my first corset. I never made one in my life, but looking at it, Im really happy. I didn't add the boning since I didn't needed it but its good for my first time. I might go back and make another one, but that would be after the convention.

Everything is going well!

I'm almost done with Rinoa now, I'd say about 85%? I need to do a little more fitting for the duster and paint it's wings but other then that she's mostly done. I even started making a pinwheel for her out of cardboard and papermache. In order to get a smooth finish on it.. what's the thing I need to cover it with before sanding and painting?

Celes is looking nice! I'm working on the corset/belt right now. As well as the pauldrons. I've cut them out of foam and am sealing them with glue/water now. Then I'll paint them gold or something nice since white is looking a little too plain. Then it's sewing the trim and adding on finishing touches.

Aerith is still the same. Buttons. Haha.. I'm lazy about buttons. I hate them.

Tamaki, well.. I still need to completely do his jacket. =( My patch STILL isn't here and it's been weeks. You'd think I bought it out of the US. But no, these people must be lazy and taking their time shipping it. If it doesn't arrive soon I may just not cosplay him and enjoy a Final Fantasy weekend.

Or see if I can finish Tifa sooner.

Gesso. Its this acrylic coat base that you can used for your prop. You can sand it once its dry and all

You can also used wood putty if you already papermache the prop. Its really good and I used it for my props, however, it takes awhile to dry. Especially since Texas is humid at times and all. Other then that, when it dries it, sand it, and it will leave the prop look smooth like wood. since it has a bit of wood filler in the putty.

Gesso, there we go. That's what I was thinking of! Canvas prep.

Wood putty, though, never heard of that one! If I had more time I'd try it out.

GUYS. I HAVE 5 FT TALL ANGEL WINGS. If you see a huge set of angel wings at Matsuri... it's me.

I can't believe I spent $225 on making them. I'm not even spending that much money at the con... I also don't know how I'm going to fit them and luggage for three people in my CRV for the road trip. GUYS MATSURI IS ONE WEEK AWAY! I already made a packing list. Speaking of packing for a con, I feel like this is me, and hopefully a lot of you...

Holy crap guys, between yesterday and today I managed to sit down and completely bust out the rest of Black Cat's costume ... all I have left to make is the belt and I'm DONE!

Never though that would happen, I figured I'd be working on this damn thing til the night before XD

A miracle happened guys. A. Freaking. Miracle.

It's funny because I originally had Wednesday off but they penciled me in to work. xD I was looking forward to extra crunch time. Now I have Saturday and Thursdays, with some morning time. Wish me luck.

It's funny, this week I'm like "Yeah whatever, I just have little details to finish, no biggie."

And next week I'm going to lose my head and be like, "I CAN'T FIND MY SEAM RIPPER HELP HELP HELP! I NEED MY JEWELRY STILL! I FORGOT TO HEM THIS!"

HAHAH Yeah it has been booming everyone moved from TXC to here even though they never really left here. then again if everyone from here knew about the actual Texas website it'd be nice. I miss the random lots of feed back from everyone. As far as me though i'm trying to make matsuri and i don't know much yet. Honestly if i do go i'm just looking forward to the meet up Maybe get the pros to teach me some random stuff. Then again i consider the pros to be Falclon and Usagi not to mention a few others whos names i really don't remember but i know they be lurkin.

The Tyler area has gained quite a few cosplayers in the last year or so.

I have mostly little things left. Adjustments, trim, buttons, painting. The construction parts are all done for the most part. The one thing I'm still worried about is my patch. If it doesn't show up tomorrow I may not even make the jacket.. it'll feel weird to make an Ouran jacket with no patch.
