:T Trying to screen print but it ain't working. Paint keeps .. leaking? Under my freezer paper and makes a mess thats hard to match the red for. Is there a trick when ironing it so it won't let the paint leak? I'm not even applying it heavy and it still smudges. I can't move it once it's ironed. I really don't get it and it's making me frustrated to work on that piece for so long to ultimately give up because my touch ups were a different colour than my fabric because my pattern somehow smudged my paint when it was ironed on securely :T
I stayed home from my weekly 'thing' to work on it, and what did I achieve? A mass of red galaxy twill in the garbage and two empty bottles of fabric paint.
Aughhhhhhhhhh!

I've finally finished my pouch!

At the moment I can't really go out and buy fabric for the jacket, since I've got coursework to get done by Saturday and exams on the 4th and the 10th. I might be able to get a bit of work on the gun prop in though.

I'm painting the swords for my Ukitake (Bleach) cosplay right now, I'm waiting for the black paint to dry so I can paint the other side. I think I'll need two coatings of that... and then I'm off to spraying the edges silver! *dances around happily*
Good thing I'm doing it outside and it's pretty blowy weather, so it dries quickly.

This evening I'll try and get the "badges" for my pouch done.

I'm planning to layer pieces of foam from a pizza base on top of each other, trim and fill in the gaps with sealent before painting it.

They're REALLLLLLY creepy but if you seach hard enough you can find latex tongues for like 10-15$ each. you could stick them to your hands but it'd be a pain to hold stuff all day XD

I was working on just my Haruhi Suzumiya costume, but it looks like I'll also be making a Konata costume for my sister. I don't mind though - costuming is a lot of fun - I just hope I'll be able to do both in time for Anime North. lol

I'm finally working on re-making Carol's dress today, hoping to have it finished by early next week since I still have two other shirts and a skirt to make before Memorial Weekend. @_@

Attaching ribbons I just realized I forgot about completely to Alois' boots and coat, otlotlotl. I'm working on pinning them right now, but it's so annoying. :<

Also, going to add the green lining to Mari's shirt soon.
