I also went through the others somewhat quickly, but I do have a feeling this one's gonna take a lot longer. It wouldn't be so bad if I could play it on the PS3, considering my PSP's analog stick moves on its own sometimes. It makes sneaking around difficult :\ (But if I could make my way through Metal Gear Acid, I can possibly get through this game. XD)
I did hear that you could find them at Target, I don't know why I haven't checked there yet. >>;
I think I found the stretch stitch on my machine. however, it's not its own stitch, but a setting on the straight stitch.. Odd. Either way, I'll test it out once I get some stretch fabric to test it on. I also have some white fabric paint laying around, so I'll test that on some scraps while I'm at it. (And don't worry about the "wall of text", I've seen worse. ^^)
Yep, school starts on Monday, I hope my schedule doesn't keep me too busy... Now that I think about it, I need to brush up on my Japanese again. And Math is gonna kill me. D:
For now, as far as cosplay goes, I just need to worry about ordering the things I need, and then play the waiting game. After that I can worry about putting the harness and such together, if I'm not already drowning in schoolwork by then. Too bad this costume won't be ready in time for my first convention.
(It's on the 15th, I think.)
