I. Need. To. SEW!
gahhhh, but I don't even have materials! This is driving me crazy!
I can't get material for at least two of my costumes until June and the other one I don't even know what the costume consists of because my only ref is a VHS that I'm afraid to ruin by watching and pausing too much and I have to wait for my friend to rip it and who knows when I'll see him!? *flail*
I could make some pj pants though... but somehow it's not the same as a pleathery Kyo outfit... *sigh*
edit: I may be able to get fabric soon! *dance*

I some times think that maybe I should a costume , but then agin I do'nt want to lazy or waste monye, but then agin It's hard to find or pay for materials.
To put it simply to sew or not to sew that is the question.

hahaha! I'v got it! I know how to do my Filth wig!
Well... not exactly... but still, I've been so confused about this and this is a cheap method and looks amazing if I can figure out the exact way! *dancedancedance*
And all plaids should die. Now. There are too many patterns and I need a very specific one. Which I found. In the form of a jacket too small to alter the way I need. Oh the angst. I am angsting now. (yes, I'm actually very happy, Filth outweighs Drain Away any day. That rhyme was extremely unintentional and I'll be going now)

It's kind of funny that one and a half years ago I thought Cosplay would be super easy. I thought I coud buy every-day-clothes for all my costumes.
I thought I could make a kick-ass Rikku underwater body suit costume for my 1st costume. -_-
I didn't know wigs were involved ( i thought bald people only wore them). I didn't know what a wig cap was.
When I sewed my seams you could see the stitching. I once was making Yuna's armbands ( FF X-2 songstress) and I used bright yellow thread with dark blue fabric. You could see the line of stitching going down.
I over bought fabric and didn't measure myself before buying. I didn't do reseach. I also didn't use hardly any pictures when making my costumes. I used 1 reference picture for my Yuna costume. -_-
I ended up throwing it away half a year ago. I was so ashamed. I thought I would wear it and never use it again.

I didn't know what Anime or Manga was. "Conventions" were for star trek geeks who were over weight and sweaty who had stupid obsessions with make believe characters.
I picked complicated, drastic, out of my league costumes that I thought would be a piece of cake.

Well alot has changed since then. In between then and now I stopped cosplaying, gave it up all the way. I had hardly even scraped the surface of what cosplay really was. I had a big ego and thought I could make anything.

I'm finally done with my Ed costume and photoshoot and I'll I get from my mom is "That's neat". She really couldn't give a crap.
