I wish everyone the best of luck! I still have a fair amount, of course...just not for me.

Well I finally have everything ready for AM so now I can get back to A-Kon costumes! =D

To help not stress myself out so much, I think I'm going to postpone fixing up my Sailor Moon costume, that way I'll just be needing to finish Eva and Weiss, then make Nami and Luffy ... then if I end up having some extra time (which I doubt) THEN I will fix Moon =P

I made major progress today, but this was my last 'free' weekend until mid-May. Back to college I go for my final certification class! I'm seriously starting to worry about being able to finish everything for A-Kon given my workload, plus there are two new skills I have to teach myself and get to a certain level before I can finish this cosplay I'm working on--applique and resin casting. (Or, if I want to be cheap and quick, hot glue casting.) I learned dyeing today. If only I could have hung my fabric outside to dry without turning the roof tiles and my patio molding purple....

Incidentally, speaking of Juvia, Fairy Tail is what has kept me sane for the last two weekends of grinding work. I love series that you can just hit 'play' on and let them run in the background while you work. I'm one of those people that can't work in silence, nor do I work well when I have to constantly get up to work the controls on my media player (i.e. one-offs or short shows).
I have done appliqueing before, but my Cardinal Sforza is testing me on how well I can do it. I got the corset appliqued and soon will move on to the dress...I must be crazy to want to applique that much gold fabric down.

So random creation outside of costume stuff is done for a few weeks. Gonna spend nights that I don't go to the gym for costuming. This week is mostly spring cleaning for both my house and my craft room/existing costumes. Nayru's lyre is coming along nicely. I hope to get it foam coated while cleaning so that I can carve it and start the mache process once I am back to working on costumes again. Also lots of fun molding to do on armor, fortunately all of the resin casting for Sylvanas is done I just have a little to do for Nayru. I am getting pumped guys!! Also after spring cleaning is done I might to a vid tour of my craft room I have seen a few other cosplayers do it and it looks like fun.

I'm hoping to have a ton of cosplays for A-Kon! I'll be going all three days, and will probably have my human Monomi cosplay, my Sugar cosplay, and my Rev!Pines cosplay finished. I'll have a Zacharie with me for the Sugar cosplay, as well as a matching Rev!pines cosplayer. I'm super excited!

The only two cosplays I had planned for A-kon were Elliot March from Kuni no Alice and Garry from IB.

I have been inching along so many other costume things keep popping up, apparently all of my friends want costume parties. *sigh* Oh well it's fun. Finially did some more work on Sylvanas and Nayru's lyre is all foamed just have to finish carving, sanding, papermache, sand, prime, paint seal. Sounds rough but sense I have been working on it while working on other stuff it shouldn't be too bad. I have a few costumes to finish up before this weekends super hero school (local comic store has alphabetical super heros come in and meet kids etc) But I should be able to start, maybe even finish the dress for Nayru this weekend. Then its just finishing the lyre, accessories and styling the wig before the photoshoot on the 13th. In the drawing I am basing my outfit on she doesn't have shoes but I feel like I should think of something, maybe just easy slide on and off shoes. yay dirty feet!

Ahh, so a little break and then it's time to finally pick some A-kon cosplays and get to work. I have so many to choose from and the only definite so far is some Ouran love (As Tamaki and Mori) and I'm going to try my best to make Rosa (FFIV).. As for what else, who knows!

I have to put my costumes on hold for this week because my brother is getting married Saturday and I made the vest he's wearing and making my mom's dress. On top of that we are doing all the food and flowers, so that leaves me exactly NO time to work on my own costumes or even commissions. But next week I'm back on the cosplay horse!

Yeah, Anime Matsuri wore me out, so I'm taking a couple of days to recuperate then I'm hoping back on the sewing wagon. Idealy, I'd like to get my gloves done for Eva and get my skirt made for Nami ... I haven't even started Nami, I need to do SOMETHING on it to make myself feel better XD

But we have 2 months til A-Kon still, so I'm not freaking out just yet, lol.

Well I got my Nayru Fabric, paid way more that I expected to because I misread a coupon... But it looks cool I have all the pieces pretty much cut out Now to begin the sew fest. I have a few costumes to finish reinforcing for superhero school, Then get the base of Nayru's dress sewn together then rolling all the hems. After that it's fairly simple beading/pearling to do. The part I am not looking forward to is her sash, So many layers, so many yards. *sob*
