Wow...
SECONDED.

I might be about to make my fourth trip in three days to Michael's Arts and crafts. Two of those trips, I bought picture frames. If I go today, then two of those trips will have been for yarn.

I've looked up a lot of patterns for the vest, and I don't like any of them, so I might just BS my way through it and hope that it works.

With my cat's help, I managed to sew one strap onto my Mio dress today. Which I had to rip off. And resew again. And rip off because it was crooked. And resew again :P

I finally got all of the wood needed to start on my prop for kusuriuri, as well as finally having got started on the embroidery for his obi. This is going to take forever, but its going to be worth it.

It seems like I've been on a roll for all white cosplays lately.

First CC, then Chii (Tsubasa R.C version) and now Sheryl's white gown based off an art on Newtype magazine!

Correction! Make that Rami, then CC, Chii and now Sheryl. Oi... OTL

One of my friends just told me how much he spends yearly on his hobby (Hobby Stock Car Racing).

And now I feel much better about how much I spend on cosplay.

Why must sleeves be so difficult? That's what I've been thinking for the last few weeks.

Something tells me I'm going to be flipping burgers this winter :P
I'd rather flip burgers than be unemployed XP But I'm really scared that if I don't find a job soon I'll have to go back to temping. I HATE temping. Sometimes I'll get called in for jobs every week for a month and then I'll go three months with nothing. It's EXTREMELY undependable.

I pick up dirty linen and trash for a living. : D There are a lot of jobs that are better than being unemployed.

Best of luck finding a steady job. o:

I dread the day that will likely soon be coming. The one where I have to admit that there's no way I can afford to make any more cosplays this year, except for Kenshin because I already have most of his materials. The one where I have to tell the cosplay groups I was planning to be in that I've got to drop them for this year.
Alas, it was a choice between Adobe CS5 and a new cosplay.
Therefore, school will be allowed to eat my life for the next few months.

This is the kind of thing I try to tell myself/my parents whenever I/they complain about how expensive cosplay is. There are more expensive hobbies out there, darnit! xD

Okay, so, I'm leaning away from doing my original design (which was pretty bad anyway, in retrospect) and asking someone else if I can do a version of Axel they drew which would be SO COOL. But then I feel bad because my cape is already 3/4 embroidered... but I could adapt it to work with the new version, maybe? Or just use it later?

Cons of not being able to afford school: Not going to school, living at home, having to deal with my parents and little brother on a daily basis without being able to tell them that I'm walking through a spot with no cell phone reception, my mom being able to ask me "What money did you use to buy that fabric? Wouldn't it be better to put that in your college fund?", not living within walking distance of the fabric store, a lack of high-speed internet.

Pros of not going to school: Babysitting the kids I love, the cons around Sacramento, hanging out with my Invasion peeps, my job, my cat, my sewing room where I happen to sleep.

I don't have a bedroom. I have a sewing room where I happen to sleep.

Speaking of stuff, I just got $20. Who's going to the fabric store? Polly. Polly is going to the fabric store. And Polly will buy fabric and trimmin' for her Layer Cake Bodice. Then Polly will have 1 week minus 1 day to fix her Layer Cake Bodice, with it's insane buttons and ribbons and sleeves and RAWRGH.

WHY AM I STILL UP. I was up inhumanly early to walk with a steampunk-themed float in a parade this morning, but am bent on getting Zuko reference pics before the day is out. And have decided that I'm DEFINITELY doing his casual teahouse outfit instead of the dressy one he wears in the season finale.

At least your cosplay doesn't cost you $10,000+ per year. o: And (usually) serious bodily harm as well.
