DireKitty you reminded me I want to make a Elfaria cosplay (Odin Sphere). Love the fake wood paper mache look.


I'll probably revisit her wig later to test the bangs but most of the wig is Done!

Also when I get to AN I'll need to buy a black wig cap. >_< Because I thicken up the lower layers on the wig the top layers are gaping int he back. But so long as I wear a black wig cap no ones going to notice. lol I didn't even see them until a took a flash photo.



Also carved and painted the upholstery foam padding I'll be using for Venus last night with the remnants of my shoe paint (Reo Red). The paint work SO WELL to not make the foam hard or even stiff like normal acrylic but has all the colour!

The shape is like a bumpit on the crown. Not huge but I wanted to give the wig some lift like the art/cartoon so that you will be able to tell the hair is shaved on the other side. Lets hope I can finish her in 3 night time. *_*

My Maou cosplay is officially done - though I may have to tighten the top to make it more breast poppingly fun.

Bilbette's wig and 'accessory' came in yesterday.

Decided yesterday I'm gonna re-make my star badge on my Ginga Bishonen cosplay, the one the seller made looks NOTHING like the one on the show.

Uploaded a picture to my profile for proof.

Welp, I learned a valuable lesson while practicing makeup layering today.

Never use hot water with Snazaroo paint cakes. They become a drippy, smelly mess that gets in your eyes. I'm just lucky they're non-toxic.

I usually use cold or warm, but currently the bathroom's cold water tap is broken, so I get like 10 seconds of cold water before it starts getting hot. Luckily that won't be a problem at the hotel during AN. XD

I buckled down and got crackin...

Dodo:
-worked on mask like a mad-woman... Had to stop when I ran out of wire. Purchased more wired but fed up with it so it's still not done. Have to sew in a liner so I don't get poked to death
-wings - bought more duct tape
-hat - STILL not done....

Yuna
-bought more duct tape for feather creation
-need to sew and add in liner
-purchased flowers for bouquet and back, bouquet complete
-need to research for back wings... leaning towards magnets

Hex - done since Con-G held up so no work needs to be done.

I hope I can see your Maria on Sunday them boot/legging. *_*



I feel bad now but I got Zero done last night. >_< I don't think I'll be finishing my Venus wig by Friday now as there is a lot of work into that simple straight wig style that needs to be done.

I probably need to move my wig to the other side of the table so that I can put back up my sewing machine as well.



I don't think I'll be able to finish Nehelenia properly for AN though. I was hoping to everything done for Venues by this Friday but there still a number of small things to do that I should try to finish over the weekend first and the Victoria day weekend I'm spending with my family this year so I'll only have Monday night to work on stuff before AN during that weekend. If I took a week off it would be a different story like when I was a student. lol

Not that I won't still be working on her it's just doing the Nehelenia chocker and cuff right will take days of sanding and I don't want to half ass them and the dress would take two weeks including a weekend day to make and complete.

Also give me more space to fix up a few things on Watashi dress. New gold cufflinks reinforcing the in the band on the mid section of the dress (interface that!) and wig detangeling/sleeking.

I should really stick to only 2 new cosplays for AN each year. This 3 business is killing me on timing. lol



Edit: My contact shipped from TA YUAN HSIANG TW to MEMPHIS, TN. Why on earth are my contacts in Memphis? lol

The first time I ever order a cosplay online because I'm pressed for time...and it turns out 2 sizes too big. Well.

I guess I'm not being Kazemaru anymore.

Swapped my cosplays around so I'm Madoka on Friday and replaced Saturday with Homura.

Just going to make sure my stuff still fits fine and needs no fixes or taking in, then besides styling my Schala wig I'm good to go. But I have to get cracking on my Faery-fest costume. I'm wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy behind on it.

Finished my cloak tonight, and the pouch for the belt is almost done. I also finished the boots as well. 90% done now. Just need to attach the pouch to the belt, wrap the book and attach that to the belt. Re-paint the mana potions and attach those to the belt (and seal the top with something.... Then acquire light up stuff from wal-mart and i'm done.

... yup.

I did something dumb to my Azumanga collar so Chiyo-chan may be getting shelved. If a friend can't help me fix it on Monday, I'll be going with plan B.

Maou needs the trim on her jacket, the skirt needs hemming, and the grommets need to be put in the back of the bodice. One good day of sewing should finish her, it's just finding the desire to bury myself in the sewing room and just DO it.
