@ Leradny - Looking good!

I'm still working on Joshua's sword. I did a couple layers of gesso yesterday, so the plan today is to sand it down and paint the hilt, though apparently my friend has a birthday party tonight that they forgot to invite me to until ~10 PM last night. D: And I was going to stay late at work so I can escape early on Thursday and go play at Fanime. PLUS I thought it would be fun for my roomie and I to do Pokemon gijinka costumes since they're not terribly hard and she's never cosplayed before, but it turns out that she has absolutely no sewing skills at all and I'm not sure I have the patience to try and finish them by myself. I mean, she can't even handsew bias tape on the edge.

@Audhulma - are you bringing Ike for Fanime? As I side note, I just got Audhulma for Joshua in the game on Saturday and I thought of you. :P

I'm a little confused about the support conversations too. Maybe we should script them out.

Full length shot of Karla.

Excuse the grainy quality and my really tired expression. One of the beads fell off the obi tails and I can't find it. ARGH.

RE: Support conversations

Ah, fudge it. We'll just take the double portrait shots and type conversations into the descriptions.

Photoshop is our friend. Sorry, sorry, I'm really just kind of stupid about such things.

Kirby- LOL, it's totally not even your fault! XD I blame the character designer. I'm sure Mist does sew, it's either her or Rolf or Rhys that does all the mending when the guys (and gals) come back from the battlefield.
I totally didn't mean mend in the Mend staff way. :/ Oh well.

Kandybar- I totally am! Too bad I didn't do him last year, I'd of had a Titania and an Elincia AND a Soren. Now I'm gonna be the odd one out. XD

Leradny- I get all tongue tied around rolling cameras so I...would really prefer some photoshop action. But I'm not against at least trying at the gathering.

@Audhulma - you'll be fine. :P It looks like, from the gathering list, that most people are doing PoR/RD. Laguz seem to be popular this year. Maybe I should have done Nailah instead. :P But I'm excited about all the swordspeople.

I left my sword outside so the paint could dry and it looks suspiciously like rain. D:

But the mend staff fixes everything! D:

According to the tracking number I've been checking every few minutes, my wig is currently in the US. HOORAY. But I still don't know if I'll get it in time for the con.

I'm totally not finished either! I can POSSIBLY get my cape and gloves finished, but I'm missing a crapload of small but visible details.

Like Vaida's scars, her blonde pixie-ish hair, that sort of rope-clasp for her shirt, her breastplate, and her boots. I'm going to look like a fricking PEGASUS KNIGHT!

I know how you feel T.T
My wig still isn't here and I ordered him a month ago.

Anyway, I also started on my sisters Artur cosplay, but I think that she'll have to finish it herself, because I'm extremely busy with school. Lute's alsmost finished. The only thing that is left is the cloak.

Auugh. Fanime is so close... I hope we don't have another heat wave here like this last weekend. That would suck. >.<

So much stuff to do. I'm not gonna get finished with Lute. -flail- But I finished Nino! ...Minus the belts and finished boots. I look horrible in green hair. ._.; I'll be cosplaying her on Friday so say hi if you see me!

Did you see my Micaiah? I didn't get her belt, pouches, boot details, white on top of her gloves, or the belts around her arms and I still wore it =P

Good luck finishing up everybody! You guys'll be amazing! ^^ Take lots of photos!

The wig not arriving on time thing is one of every cosplayer's worst nightmares. Good luck with that Leradny! At least your real hair is pretty close, for a worst case scenario.

I finally started dyeing Ephraim today. The color is like perfect. Like, the color I've been searching for for over a year now. *_* I'm letting it dry before doing another coat of the dye (don't want it to get too wet)... DRY FASTER!! >_< Patience Luther, this is what ruined the last dye job... u_u
