Taylormuch: I usually get my EVA foam sheets from Michaels and Joanns. (Michaels usually carries rolls, which you'll just need to warm up with a heat gun to get to lie flat again.) How thick are you looking for? I've even used mats from Home Depot

Thick enough to be sturdy, but I could always do layers. I'll definitely check out Joann's or Michaels, thanks! And, my gosh, I totally went to Home Depot and they said they didn't have mats! Whut!

Taylor: best of luck! :3 And those liars--they have foam mats in the gardening section :P They also have larger interlocking mats that look like jigsaw pieces--I know some cosplayers that use them for larger armored costumes, and my Dad has them on the floor in his garage.

And 10 DAYS TO GO!! My Elsa ice shoes should be arriving today, Gumballs pants will be arriving by Thursday and Elsa's wig should be here by this weekend Decided on not bringing Monochromicorn, since he turned out waaaayy too big to pack, haha. Other than that, it's time to break out the lists and start getting organized.

Edit: Elsa shoes arrived and, while gorgeous, I didn't realize that the toe and ankle pieces were going to be made out of EVA foam. I know that they won't hold up to the abuse of Wonder con, so I cut off the foam pieces and used them as a template--slightly modified--to cut out pieces of worbla that I heat molded to the shoes and attached with E5000. Once dry, onto priming, sanding, painting, glossing, and glitterfying!



And with shoes! Just waiting for the wig now :3



And due to programming/panel changes my lineup is now:

Friday: Astrid, then Vanellope
Saturday: Elsa, then Prince Gumball
Sunday: Daenerys, then Snow White

Snuck in Vanellope since I haven't had the chance to wear her to a con yet C:

I've got progress as far as cosplays, my skirt is done I've spent most of today finishing up the details on that. I need to finish the belt. Unfortunately, I had planned to finish up the shirt today but after sewing it down it was still too loose so I had to do what I didn't want and liquid stitch them down, just so they'd look tighter. It needs to set for the rest of the day so I couldn't finish. I might end up at Disneyland tomorrow, so no working for me, but by the end of the week I plan to have pictures to show off for everyone. :]

In the mean time, I bought a new beautiful lens for my camera. https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/...3b&oe=53456EF8 It's a 70 - 300mm telephoto that I got on sale for the price I was planning to spend for a 200mm so I'm really excited about it. I don't know if it'll go to Wondercon because there's not much call for telephoto lenses, but we'll see.

And in other news the first season of Young Justice is now on Netflix~!

Tulipe: Can't wait to see progress photos!! And Someone's at Filippi's! XD And yup, saw Young Justice as soon as it was up. I'm tempted to get Amazon Prime so that I can watch Batman TAS, too :P

@Ayaasan: Haha. I would have pictures if it weren't so late in the day. My house has crappy lighting. You can tell the restaurant!? xD

By the by I got distracted and forgot to comment on how wonderful Elsa looks. You're so sparkly!

Thank-you!! I can't wait to wear Elsa :3 And that's my Mom's favorite restaurant--we just got one down in IB

Annndd...I couldn't help myself--I have a TON of glitter left over from Elsa, so I sparkled up my Vanellope wig, hahaha.

Sorry for the double post, eep! :x

One more week until Wondercon!!

Nostalgia bomb--I found some pictures of my Charlotte gown, and I sooo badly want to re-make it. The bodice alone is terribad, since I was just learning how to make structured bodices. Sooo...re-make Lottie's masquerade gown? Or make her cupcake wedding gown?

I'm leaning toward re-making the masquerade gown, since I could use some pretty brocades that I have in my stash...but cupcake dress! :/

Ayaasan: It looks amazingly cool! (I should never, EVER do that again xD ) I can't wait to see your wig!
And as for Charlotte's gown I say her masquerade one!

********
I finally made my very first embroidery patch! Given it took me four days to make it but I was super busy doing stuff for my family I could only work on it every once an a while. Now I just gotta make one more! >~<

Link: I totally admire your patience for embroidery--it's one of those things that I never learned how to do and I envy those who know how

And I'm totally going with her masquerade gown. I already found the perfect bodice fabric, for more of a Southern Belle "vibe"

EDIT: BRB, I'm currently shrieking over how absolutely perfect my Elsa wig turned out I'll be coming back to Necrochic for sure when I get to a few more projects Can't wait to wear her next week!!!!
