I have boots!
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3359738/

I also:
-Took apart a pink wig to use for Clover's streaks and give extra volume for all dat hair. Now just need to wait on the rest of her wig supplies when Arda restocks.
-Began her hoodie and skirt, but have to put those on hold for a while because school is kicking my butt.
-Made all her pompoms. They are hanging on my mirror until they are needed. My mom thinks this is adorable and wants me to make another set to decorate with afterward. --;

Reverse progress:
Got my Ikaruga wig in and the colour is most definitely not as anticipated. Have to dye it now. :/ Was expecting this to be a no-work wig, just needed a bang trim...Really not looking forward to dying a 40" wig...

Love love love how that is turning out (even though it's just cardboard). You got the right shape there for sure!

Oh my goodness, I love that wig! Do you mind me asking where you got it from?
It looks lovely on you!

So happy to know there will be at least one cosplayer from 999 at AN.

I also strongly encourage photos in this thread. Checking out people's progress is one of my favourite parts of being in the cosplay community. (Just try not to have huge photos embedded in your posts; links or attachments won't stretch the page.)

I had a very productive week in anime north prep. I got my jean jacket for Trunks $10 at a vintage store. I ordered my capsule corp patch for Trunks so all I need is to dye my hair blonde. As for Wade I got my swords so all I need is a couple of belts or straps to attach them to my body and a red muscle shirt. I may also get a couple of guns/other props as well. I've also stuck quite well to my diet and exercise plan. It will be a bit before I get real results though.

I deiced to add neon green paint to the Ivy and I like it so much better. I have yet to see it in daylight but I think I need 1 more coat and then a sealing matte gloss and I'll be done.
Note to other the Folk Art neon paints are super sheer and watery compared to the rest of their acrylics.

I'm itching to start my boots now, and put these in storage.

I THINK, if UPS actually delivers it this time instead of having just held it direcly at the office (seriously. I missed the delivery truck by FIVE MINUTES, and since I live in an apartment with locked doors they couldn't just leave it there), that tomorrow I'll have a woodbaby shoulder-puppet of Owloysius for my Twilight Sparkle cosplay! I can't wait to see him. ^_^ And I'm gonna make him a sparkly red bow tie like he got from Rarity. XD

Started Dodo because I never got fabric for Yuna. Let me explain how I will be doing Dodo. He's going to be more of a humanoid version, so it will be very simple. I have been slowly working on the wings (which are made from duct tape of course). The wings will attach to my arms. I will have a beaded mask for the face (and beak). I will crochet a hat (because Dodo wears a hat) with feathers on top. Last but not least I will attempt to make a large plushie Valentina that I will carry around (maybe a Mario to that I could bash around).

Life has been hectic lately so not sure if and when I will get around to Yuna.

Finally made progress! I finished up my Camellia Gumi fedora today. Which means I am done with Gumi.

Also took about ten steps back with my friend's camellia Luka dress. After it not fitting for like the 7th time...I realized that we are going to have to remake it. Like the whole thing. ._. The only piece that I can reuse is the white skirt. We did a quick "mockup" of sorts with the pieces and the new ideas we had and honestly, it is going to look SOOOO much better. However...I have to make everything...and make my friend come over more to try stuff on so we don't run into a problem again.

I managed to score a black denim shirt in my size in Kitchener Value Village. It needs to be hems (it a long skirt. lol)

Start my Venus Boots but I might have hit a snag with adding the mouth on them. >_<

More progress! http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3363152/

Ended up buying new fabric for the skirt yesterday and restarting it. Originally I was accurately replicating her red/green pattern, but the green stripes ended up adding a surprising amount of stiffness to the skirt and I didn't like the drape I was getting.

Bought a new petticoat for Gumi. Crossing my fingers it gets here before Thursday so I can take it home with me for spring break so I can see if I need to remake the circle skirt on my dress or not.

Also bought 5 yards of black satin for friend's Camellia Luka circle skirt. ._. This skirt is going to be MASSIVE.

Although there not 100% accurate, I'm pretty happy with these modifications to the boots.
