So I just found light-up shoelaces. Like they're transparent, but you wind them through this little charger (with batteries) and they light up. I haven't tested them yet, but if they work anything like they're supposed to I can make Takuya's spirit ring infinitely better.

Still working on getting something strong but transparent to hold the ring in place around my glove. Also I still need the gloves >< And some white hi-tops to paint.

teabeforecoffee I'll be post a tutorial on them after AN.

I wearing circle lens today to see if i can handle them for 16 hours without issue. Getting them in was tricky as heck I have the strongest blink reflex ever!
I'm wearing these as they where having an introduction sale for $16.50 on them
https://www.pinkyparadise.com/Produc...e=G28-SANDY-BL

These are the ones II want to get.
For Venus
https://www.pinkyparadise.com/Produc...-BLUE&CartID=2
For Nehelenia
https://www.pinkyparadise.com/Produc...4-F55&CartID=1


I'm surprised who comfortable they fell on my eyes, It's just the eye lids that are feeling irritated by some something. lol I look so bug-eyed without make on with these.


Edit: 4 hours in an they have stopped feeling annoying on my lids. lol

Edit: 9 hours later I had to take them out as on of my contact surface dryed out a bit and then I blinked. Hurt like shit but I have add this issue before while sleeping with my eye slightly open to takes about 3 hours to calm down. So fun trying to take them out while my one eye was watering.

I've have to try to wear them every Sunday still I get use to them to see if I can tolerate them in on the Saturay a full day but I was surprised how blue they look one considering there not opaque at all.

I'm soooo behind on cosplay stuff thanks to school ;_; Made a bit of progress on the leather bits for my Lady Loki cosplay (belts and bracers) though. School is done in a week so hopefully I can start on the more time consuming bits like the helmet.

Dollarama, surprisingly enough. My only issue is they don't specify which colour they light up. It might just cycle through a bunch? I should probably actually try it out soon, but I need some more materials for the prop I have to attach these to.

Got my Sonia wig, found out it was too bright, gave away my ex-Sonia wig, bought a new one. And my Kazemaru wig isn't here yet! Sigh. Oh well. I'm making good progress on both my Sonia and Kazemaru cosplays, so that's good.

So two weeks ago I received my Takuto cosplay in the mail, I had ordered it from a seller on Ebay, actually a very decent costume. In the past my experiences with sellers on ebay have been hit or miss. I'm somebody who still doesn't know how to sew and can only do so much with my costumes, I'm better with props.

Only things that I don't like about the costume is they forgot the white gloves (that's easily fixed though, still annoying though considering the picture actually showed gloves included), the leg covers when I tried the whole costume on were not sitting in place comfortably, so I'm gonna have to safety pin them to my pants, and lastly the BOOT COVERS were proving a bit annoying because the seller didn't ask for my foot size and fitting anything in there was not easy until yesterday, I realized that a simple pair of slippers fits in there without ripping or wrecking it. I was actually really worried I would have to resort to shaping and creating a makeshift "shoe" for those covers and to look forward to incredibly dead feet.

Yep, that's right..I'll be wearing slippers for most of the day on Saturday and you won't even notice. xD

Ivy Sun how long is the fur you need. I usually use Walmart shag fur rugs for my last project Kongiku's tail and ears.

I think I have the same ones. I bought them for a headpiece I was working on. The ones I have glow the color of the plastic casing (blue) and cycle thru different flash patterns but don't change color.

I still have to figure out the Choker for Nehelenia. I did however found this 1 vintage bracelet to cast for the beads if worst comes to worst.
