My finances are looking a bit better now.
I do have money in my account... but not much for spending.
I have $170 in... I can pull out $150.
However... My car insurence NEVER got paied for... Which is beyond me.
You'd think when you put money in, $130 more... that the money should goto the most expensive item still owed (Car Insurence @ $111)... NOPE! It went to my Amarant Camo pants ($30) so Car Insurence bounced AGAIN. I gotta go into the place and be all "Umm... yea... it's like this <repeat what I just stated>"

Then rent comes out... $100...
But I DO get payed before that, so hopefully that'll cover it.

I need to set it up so my tips go into my account and I keep the money form pay checks...

Amano's Amarant is due byt FRIDAY!
One more day!! I"m not even sure how it'll turn out!!

So the bank put the money toward the pants instead of the car insurance? Which did you write a check for first? It could be putting the money toward what you paid for first. Well, good luck with your finances and the con!

I started working on my Celes pants last night. Trouble is, the pattern I have is sized really small. It sure is an ego buster when you normally wear a size 12 pants and the size 16 is slightly too small for you because of your big butt. I'm not panicking though even though I've already started sewing it up. I'm going to be creative and with my mom's help I'm going to add some sort of tabs on the waist that will come over and snap or button or velcro or something then put in the grommets for the lacing.

The key to saving money on Amano costumes...is to be very creative :P

A lot of my Rydia I had around the house already, I didn't need to buy anything for my whip, for example.
Just give yourself time and find where the sales are. Every week I save my JoAnns and Michaels craft store coupons incase I find I need to make a trip there.

It's the beads and trim that kills your wallet >_<

Sounds like we've got many more Amano costumes coming along, good luck!

I wasn't sure if you were still looking for reference pics for Amarant's tattoos or not, but there's a head and shoulders picture of him on that site where you can see the salamander on his arm better.

I'm getting really pissed off at my little body suit for my Rydia costume. I'm confused with the crotch area. Mind you, I do this all by eye because I cannot afford the stinkin' patterns around here. -grumbles- How do I make the bottom area like a bathing suit thingy? -blinks- I'm bad at explaining things. ^^;

w00t
Thanks!
I did find that site before... But the tattoo is still not tthe best.
I have found the best references to bee fan art and the in-game pictures of him... then just taking what I can actually see in the pictures and make something else out of it.

And last night was when i worn my costume...
So I'm realieved that for now it's done... so is my mom... never have I seen her so frusterated while sewing (It was the pleather fabric).

I was missing alot of detail... including necklaces (know any good Amano-esque jewely sites?), straps, armbands, tattoos, getting my hair fro'd and colored, tassles and somee other stuff.

We will still be adding on however

I REALLY want a Claw weapon prop!!

Are you trying to get the crotch area to look like a bathing suit piece?

Maybe try a pair of panties? Not thongs...
But they could be useful as a reference and pattern for the bottom piece?
