@Kagz: Yeah, the fur is for Juvia. I need something medium to long pile in white to edge her costume from the Grand Magic Games. Locally all I seem to find is really short pile that doesn't look to hot all done up as trim. Online all I'm finding is stuff that's like $30 a yard and I don't even need that much. Either way, I have to have it done for a con at the end of June for a big Fairy Tail group I'm part of. But I really wanted to give her a test run at A-kon and see if I will need to tweak things later on. I hate when it gets down to the wire before a con...

I should be sewing right now....but monitoring the tornadoes overhead is a bit more important. >.< Plus, the power could go out at any minute, which is unsafe for sewing.

I'll see if I can find anything while I am at work tomorrow Mehdia.

I am almost done with the apoxie sculpt today taking a break for my backs sake. If I get done early enough hopefully I can get Fel's skirt done also.

That would be very awesome of you Kagz. I'm going to hunt one more time tomorrow locally since I have to pick up stuff anyway, so I'm gonna dig all through the stores to see what I can hunt down.

Mehdia--have you checked Golden D'Or? It might work in a last ditch effort. (I really dislike the fur sold by JoAnn's.) Select Hobby Lobbys might also sell it...come to think of it, there's a large distribution center on Midway in Addison too that might have it. I gave TifaIA a bunch of fox fur a few months back; I'm querying her to see if she has any of it left.

Golden D'or has a good choice they have some white but its not to long. There the fabric factory on midway close to Addison as well. But golden D'or is pretty expensive my fashion skool sends us to go there for fabric it gets pretty pricey

TifaIA got back to me--Mehdia, the white fox fur is yours if you want it. I know I'd ordered a few yards back in the day; pile is 2-3 inches long. If I remember correctly, it's either from Monterey Mills or Distinctive Fabrics.

Mehdia - this is the best I found while hunting so far today, not sure if it is enough.

Finished all of the apoxie stuff I needed to do going to go see my super helpful sanding team tonight and get help sanding up the armor trim. I also have quite a bit of stitching I am planning to do tonight. I am a mad woman with progress lately.

I'm definitely looking forward to this year!

Friday: Deedlit (Record of Loddoss War)
Saturday: Sailor Moon for the SM photoshoot (should be around noon for anyone interested!)
Sunday: Robin (Dark Knight Returns) or possibly Sailor Moon again.

I also have a big cosplay I'm trying to finish for the contest on Saturday so hopefully I can manage it. There's way too much to do. :[

Hooray for old school! I'm likely to wear Deedlit either Saturday or Sunday, depending on whether or not I get Erza done in time. I needed cosplays this year that are comfortable to stand in for hours, not to mention move around a bunch of filming equipment.

I'm seriously debating trying to redo my Athena corset with lightning speed, possibly bringing it instead of Umi. It'd be more comfortable to stand around in, especially with the heat.

Speaking of...time to check the 15 day weather forecast.

Forecast for Project A-Kon:
Sunny, highs in the lower 90s. Breezy. So it will be warm, but not as warm as last year.

Thanks for all the options guys! I did find a faux fur trim today that is 4" wide that I bought to put on the costume. Wish I would have seen the posts earlier but I was at work and just got near my computer because I would have totally taken you up on the fox fur Celyddon. Though I still might at some point because I want to do Juvia's other costume she wears in the Grand Magic Games and will need it for that too.

On the progress front, I got the frame made for my Juvia hat last night and will probably get the covering done on it tonight. I'm pretty stoked to finally be making noticeable progress on this because I've had the base dress made for weeks and have had to put it aside to finish up commissions and stuff.

I'm pretty sure we now have a solid cosplay line-up now. Which cosplays on which days is still unsure yet, but that probably won't be something we'll know until the night before.
So, we'll have Anon and Essi from X-Note, Fem!Prussia and Casual!Russia from Hetalia, and ... We aren't sure if we're going to re-wear one of the others or bring along third ones yet. It's still up in the air.
Ciel got kicked off the list, which I'm actually grateful for, since he's way too hot to be wearing there.
