@Cyrennia @MDA - Thankyou!!
Can't wait for the finished product - the outfit is going to be bright orange (comparable to the in game Garnet rather than the cover art version)

@SuperBee - you got this!! Can't wait to see it when you do finish

If you're dip dyeing with polyester try ironing the dipped part after they have hung up to dry. I know there's a thread on here that explains dying synthetics very well (and she was doing Yuna)

I've overheard your situation over the past while .. However .. you should be proud of the effort you are making because you are trying your hardest! What ever you accomplish will be beautiful

I looked at Kuja today... he's finished... but.... I'm just not happy enough with him to take him to Anime North. It's not something I'd want to show off at a convention... he's just not... how I wanted him. At ALL! Far from...

So no FF cosplay for Saturday, and I'll be Rydia on Sunday instead.

@KuroiAisu: Awe that's okay!! I will still get a photo with Blank and we will be FF9'ers together!

In further news! I got my brown contacts in! I was concerned because:
1. I have never worn contacts (however, consequently they are very comfortable)
2. My eyes are green/blue and, ultimately, light (however, the brown contacts hide everything!)

Check them out! - Princess Garnet is almost ready to show!

(feeling immediate guilt) @MDA (completely missed replying to you!): That's okay! Perhaps next year you will perfect your work to a level you're happy with Though I am sure it was already amazing! Cosplay is art, so take all the time you need to make a masterpiece!

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3381297/ I have stitched a dress, but I need to add the liner. Started attaching the feathers first because I am hoping that the liner will hide the edge of the feathers. I don't know if I will have time to add hot fixes as originally planned. I need to get more duct tape for both Yuna and Dodo, and continue to make feathers. And finish my mask of never ending....

After more than a week not posting here... (I updated the list meanwhile with the PM I received on the AN teahouse forum though.)

@bin_rand: Never saw your warrior Rikku, so I can't wait to see it ^^ It looks amazing in your costume gallery, you make an awesome Rikku!

@chexlleim: Well, at least you started Kain, so you can finish him for next year or whatnot, will take off some stress for the convention you'll wear him at since you won't have to start all over again ^^

@teabeforecoffee: Oh wow, your Garnet pendant looks great! ...and to tell you the truth, personally I prefer the version you're making (orange FTW!) over the yellow version, so I can't wait to see it ^_~ ...oh, and welcome to the "why do you want BROWN contacts, you have blue eyes!!!" club x'D ...go cosplay lol.

@Nickle4aPickle: ...polyester is a jerk, that's all I have to say about it... *glares at Sephiroth's scarf that had to be hand gradient painted since the same thing happened to it*

@Synn4000: Congrat on finishing your cosplay!

@KuroiAisu: Awww...well at least you still have a cosplay to bring. and Blank is as rarely done as Gilgamesh too ^^

@MDA: Awww...hope I'll be able to see it someday nevertheless! ...even if it's just at next ConG at your place or something lol. Rydia has been noted!

@SuperBee: Your dress looks good so far! Can't wait to see your cosplay now! Oh and...I also heard about your 'situation' when reading other threads, and let me tell you this...going to a con actually helps changing what's on your mind a bit even for just a weekend, I lived the same thing back when I was making WoL for AN11, it's good to boost up your moral a bit too. So keep it up girl, I'm sure you'll amaze everyone with your fabulous cosplay at AN!


...and now on my part.... My cosplays are finally confirmed, so it's going to be Rosa, Setzer and Ike (SSBB not FF I know lol), more than likely in that order unless I arrive too late the friday or it's too warm to wear Setzer an entire day. The last two only need minor fixing (remake the gold part of Setzer's boots which got destroyed in the locker and retouch Ike's boots mostly).
Rosa...well, the shirt of evil incarnated only needs velcro on the 'red pleather part' to hold the armor and then I can FINALLY make the gold jewels thingies at the front! Then the belts, which are cut and are in the making right now, and the scarves and knee armor (jewel already made for it), so nothing big left! I am super happy right now, so much less stress than usual for Anime North, WHOOT!

@teabeforecoffe - I made Dissidia Kuja last year and he turned out great. Part of my problem I think for this one was my fabric choices. This is the first costume I've made where I've been so unhappy with it. All my others I'm thrilled with how they turned out. Kuja, Xemnas, Rydia, Vincent... but this version of Kuja no.

@Nefer - yeah you'll see him someday xD And Rydia's a bit more comfortable to wear home anyway :P though might take all the capes off for the ride.
