After a weekend of trial and error, I finished my first Takuto wig, it's a steep learning curve working with wigs, especially for me, but I think I did a decent job, next I'm working on the second Takuto wig, the Ginga Bishonen one.

Also just gotta pick up a pair of white running shoes and alter them a wee bit for my casual Takuto costume, then that costume is officially done, debating on picking up a pair of pliers for gag pictures. :P

OH! I ALSO AGREED TO MAKE A LAST MINUTE PROP. A sign for a friend who is cosplaying a female version of Shizuo from Durarara!!!

So wow Venus's Wig is kicking my ass! I'm so glad I dropped Nehelenia to work on he this week. The long hair NEEDD a lot of TLC every step of the way as I'm rearranging the hair configuration.

My second attempted to make the glove with a sewing machine failed! My machine can't handle the nylon no matter the setting it just snags and pulled into the machine.

Also tested out the stocking more though for my leg and there sheer enough that I had to double them up one me.


BUT if your every go with We Love Color for cover a part of the body to mimic coloured skin avoid the Plus Sized Nylon/Lycra Tights!!! There sheer then their standard Nylon/Lycra MicroFiber Solid Color Tights and those stretch more nicely even with the M/L's size not mean for my body shape. also the MicroFiber Solid Color is nice and richer compared to Nylon/Lycra tights, I just don't understand the difference in manufacturing. >_<

Part of the reason I like the tight/gloves is it would cover up freckles/moles better then the body paint. But it's hotter to wear as a trade off though.

I started sewing my friends Raichu ears and such. I also picked up the last of the materials for my Cammy gloves and finished my Cure Sunshine earrings. I no longer know how I am going to pull this off.

Finally got Dory to fit right, yay! Just need to adjust the shoulder straps and HEM ALL THE SKIRTS then style the wig. I've decided against making an actual crown. Wearing the diving mask on my head will look kind of like a crown anyway... right? ;p

Also bought more makeup this past weekend then I have in the past 5 years. I almost never wear it but since my face isn't covered with fur this time I figured I'd better try looking presentable!

Hmmmm... *stroking chin* You're right. A little reef embellishment might be nice. Have to see if I have time. I DO have a Squishie handbag, though!

So far I'm failing miserably at making my Sable wig's spikes correctly, made the spikes way too thin and can't correct them without utterly destroying the damn wig, but at least combined with the rest of the costume, people will know who it's supposed to be. So I guess it's not a total disaster, but jeez is this ever gonna bother me.

Hello everyone,

I hope I am posting in the right section, but not sure. I have been working on a kingdom hearts birth by sleep armor and I am stumpt on a part of my armor. I do not know how to make the visor for the head. I have tried using a hard plastic or fiberglass and melting it into shape, but than I get bubbles in it or what not.

Do you guys know a good way I can custom make one?

Here is what my helm looks like. It is more up to date, but this is all I have for pictures since i'm at work. I have the face cut out already

So since I didn't feel like touching my wig last night (procratinate!) so I made 8 new buttons for Watash! They're curing still before I paint but there 100% better then my original ones. *_*

Also FedEx is dropping of my contacts today. *_* I'll be testing out the GEO Xtra WBS 202 Bella contacts and the eye-drops first.

Hmm... is the visor supposed to be clear? (idk what character that is supposed to be...)


Hopefully you will have it done by Anime North! Not much time left!

I didn't think I could be this excited to open a envelop of contact supplies.

The Belle ones are most just tradition circles lens with a black outer ring, the blue/colour is very minimal. Just a sheer and thinner halo of colour at the centre with a really dark outer ring. I was expecting them to be brighter.

These will be amazing for Venus!!!!
https://www.pinkyparadise.com/Produc...tCode=G26-BLUE

These are going to look so cool with Nehelenia!
https://www.pinkyparadise.com/Produc...uctCode=E4-F55

These are the nicest Lubricate drops I've every tired. I literally can't feel them going in. *_*

I know that Rohto is sold in the US drugstores but why not in Canada! lol

These are the bottom lashes I picked up. The bands are supper thin and the style is both natural, short, and funky. *_*
https://www.pinkyparadise.com/Produc...ctCode=DL55104




Finshed my Watashi buttons and tames the hair on Venus, but I still need to style it!

I have four projects to finish up before AN, and in typical fashion, I'm working on the least important >_< I'm doing a simple (but so far very effective) prop for my Pepper Potts costume. I did a lot of work with a dremel last night, so the plan for today is to give my wrist a break and get around to the finishing touches I need to put on my other 2 main costumes. One will only take a few minutes but I've been realllly good at procrastinating lately LOL
