You know. . .I never thought that I could use my other guy shirt to reference how well my vest would fit.

This is wunderbar. Absolutely wunderbar.

Scavanger hunting all this law enforcement/military gear/stealth gear from the SWAT surplus store for this costume I'm working on is giving me naughty ideas about what I could get away with if I were to try using it for it's actual purposes rather then just the authenticness of the character... must... use.. for pretend.. purposes.. only.. X) hehehehehe... stealing.. is .. naughty...

Problems that keep popping up in my mind.. If I get this utility belt will spray painting it red work or will it not show up? Since the real deal issued to police officers and SWAT only come in black and I WANT the real deal how am I supposed to turn it the colour I want? grrr... paint? dye? will it even show up? yarrr.. and tactical pants only come in men sizes.. so what does a women's size 11-12 translate to in mens sizes?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... time for more research....

I can always construct one if I can't figuire out how to alter...

Dear lord. I never knew how much I could get accomplished at once! I cut out all my patterns, pinned them to the fabric for my shinigami costume not to mention priced out material for my "secret cosplay" .....its going to cost me an arm and a leg just in fabric!

Hehe . . . ever since I got into FMA, that phrase has always made me giggle.

I need to finish my automail commission while the weather is nice, but I'm sick!! I've still got to spraypaint it, sew one glove into the shoulder piece, add the strap and the velcro, and then 'test-drive' it, but I'm sick! I've been sleeping on and off for about 9 hours, and it's not helping.


I wonder - if I think about it hard enough, will my parents bring home a Reese's Peanutbutter Cup Blizzard from DQ? Those always make me feel better. *tries*

There's a tutorial floating around here somewhere.

I got the front of my Lulu dress cut out. I'm in a good mood again. XD

I looked at my school project and said "Meh, later", and got a lot of work on my dress done today.

Backing my stretch velvet with cotton is working wonderfully!

My paper is done and turned in. All I have to worry about now is the belt, pants, and "skirt", plus finishing up the rest of the jacket in less than 11 days.

(And at the same time try to figure out how to capture a router configuration and tftp save it, in two days or by the end of the week. Plus ACTs and PSAEs + prom = all before Anime Central) @_@

My fabric is defying physics again...

And I just had to rip an entire panel because the velvet shifted.

I meant to get it done today.

But the collar's been confusing the hell out of me. I think it'll work. . .but it's too late to work on it now. . .

Kesou.

I just got a job and I'm trying to figure out how much I'll make before animazement which is a month away and I still have several cosplay things to buy and I've barely started the one and AAAAAHHHH.

However. I now have a job at Hancock Fabric. I don't care if the customers are bitchy or if the management is mean, it's worth it for the 20% employee discount
