I'm mad one of the local cops crashed my Mistubishi 3000GT during a trial run at the track. All that bodywork and paint job to look like a Japanese cop car ruined!!

How on earth do you mount a duct-tape dummy so it'll stand up? Oh, and only a week left until the Christmas fueled fabric buying bonanza begins!

Moving is interesting. I never realized before that I owned approximately 15 tape measures and 21 pairs of scissors. Maybe I need to clean more often.

A light stand (such as from a thrift store) perhaps? Maybe a mike stand?
You can stick it on there and pretend you're Vlad Tepes (the Impaler, aka Dracula - his birthday was a week or two ago).

That's a good idea Tenebrae. I do have a coat stand I picked up at Goodwill that I was hanging it on at first, but since I kind of want to use that for coats...besides, it would make the dummy a little tall for me to comfortably work on.

Does cannibalizing stuffed bunnies and teddy bears for their fur for my Merle costume make me a bad person?

No...it's only bad if you do a photoshoot while tearing their fluffy innards out and a crazed look on your face.
Hey, that gives me an idea for a photoshoot!

Custom umbrella...
I'd like to know, too!
I think it might work to start with an old dying umbrella and take it apart to use the pieces for a pattern and make new pieces out of a different fabric...like, say, shiny black PVC fabric with deep points!

And the bunnies? For an Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer cosplay, of course!
Sing it!

o/`Bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes,
They've got them hoppy legs and twitchy little noses.
And what's with all the carrots-
What do they need such good eyesight for anyway~?
It could be bunnies, bunnies...buuuunnies! o/`

-Tenebrae.

Omgosh >_<

My mother made me so mad today while we were in Goodwill.

I brought my costume folder and pictures and was literally running around looking for a lab coat ( faust VIII) and she just yells and me and goes " Jessica! Put those away. We are here to buy clothes not to waste our money on whatever you are doing now a days. Be practical. What in gods name are you going to do with that?"

Mother you know nothing about cosplay and how much I love to do this. Try not and take away my only thing that I do with my time. K?

I wanna go to Walmart NOW!!!!!

I went to Fabricana today - by myself - and it was a total waste. I didn't understand how to figure out the prices, where to find the cheap stuff, what fabric to get, and none of the store-ladies that saw me walking around like a lost puppy did ANYTHING to help.

I'm no good at fabric shopping alone. I'll have to drag my mom with me. She knows how fabric stores work.

I've been putting a layer of hairspray on the spikes, too. What was happening when I posted that was the spikes weren't sticking together in a linear fashion. I just had to use a bigger hairclip.

The gel actually has a strong enough bond with itself so that I don't have to hold it up.

One layer down - three hundred fifty five million to go. XP Bah, Riku's hair is a pain. Good thing I've started on it now, when the con I want to wear it to is five and a half months away.

Finally cut out the pattern for Riku. I guess I'll have to start modifying it tomorrow. Don't know how well that'll go over with my Home Ec. teacher, but since I'm the only sewing student out of a class of nearly 30, I think I'll be safe. After all, I've whittled away a good three months just drawing, and I never really got caught.

I heart my Anna costume. But did I cut the keyhole opening big enough, or could it be a bit bigger? And how am I going to do the phoenix when I can barely draw? Yay, but eep.

hmm.. i wonder what I should cosplay as.. i wonder if the majority of people at Anime Central will be in cosplay. I wonder if I should conform.. I rather just wear something cool and unique to myself. Become my own anime character.

Of course I did want to do batou from ghost in the shell since I'm somewhat a big guy with long hair.. but the optical device of the eyes seems somewhat difficult to manage. it seems a small metallic scope with the texture of a thimble is needed. I'm sure there is a type of body glue created for these types of things..

anyone know anime characters that wear all blue? pm me.
i could lose some weight and do sailor mercury crossplay. lol.
