Wait...why am I done so early? *now expects something bad to happen*
Ooh when you finished styling the wig take pics, take pics! I want to see your costume!

Everyone I have ever met now apparently knows I cosplay...

Tonight I went out to a buffet and all-you-can-drink party with 40 people. People asked me to "moe moe kyun!" their drinks, one tried to convince me to open a cosplay fetish bar with him, I got lots of compliments on photos they've seen on my facebook or in local magazines and was introduced to a few folks as "the girl I told you about who cosplays."

At the end of the evening, I bowed out early because I've been ill and my stomach was bothering me.

One of the Japanese guys said, "But you're the Fullmetal Alchemist! Can't you just *clap* it better?"

I kind of wanted to hug him for his sincereity and drunken fanboyishness ^^

Being outed isn't so bad... I just worry now that I'm out, I can never totally go back ~in~ the cosplay-closet again. I hope prospective employees don't get the wrong idea :/

Will do. XD Unfortunately my family wants to go to the aquarium today so no wig styling for me. >_>. Darn you family. I was on a roll here.

My thoughts exactly D;


My boots arrived! They'll do..I guess...But i have such big feet they kinda look like clown sized which really bothers me Even though I could afford buying a different pair, I don't have any other options. (except for the cosplay.com store, but they're kinda crazy right now.) Sucksman

D; Well, mine probably won't come til Monday but FFF I want it now. Tell me the mail hasn't run for me yet....
(XD I think my parents like when I've ordered something...I always offer to get the mail)

That's not good. I'm sure it's just your mind being critical~ I bet they look fine~
I don't like ordering boots, period. The one time I did, they were a size too big, and combat boots on top of that, so they made mah feet look huge.

I have about two hours before I have to go to work, and my Kenshin cosplay to finish. Yet I am contemplating starting cutting the fabric for my next costume. Yes, Geomancer looks easy, but I bet it's not. And it's very possible that by starting it, I'll end up with two unfinished costumes by convention season. Not to mention that most of my cosplay-contemplation-time is occupied by the finer details of planning out a set of turian armor >_<
... I need a longer attention span.

Ooh, I went fabric shopping today.

Didn't really find the fabric (lycra) that I wanted in a very light blue, so had to compromise. The colour for a part of the outfit will be a little darker than presented in the character, but that can't be helped. Even though I had various reference pictures, I just couldn't find a blue that matched at all, oh well.

When I finally decided and gathered every material I needed, I want to the counter to get it all cut. Although the cashier wasn't a cosplayer, she loved fancy dress and going to parties like that. She seemed really fascinated and we talked for a while. I recommended her going to conventions as she's a fashion student.

I wonder if she'll ever consider cosplaying? She did say she used to love watching anime and such.. Hm.

Got a lovely rant from madre about my cosplay. :T
My parents have never supported my cosplay hobby from the start, because only "freaks and NEETS" dress in wigs and character costumes outside of Halloween. Now that I have a convention coming up, they're pulling the "you need to put away childish things" argument again.

It may just a grass-is-greener perspective, but to me it seems like a good portion of cosplayers receive support from their parents for their cosplay endeavors.
How do you get parents like these??

I haven't made much progress lately.
I was working on the mockup for the tailcoat on Thursday. Then I ran around basically all day on Friday, but I went fabric shopping and got the fabric for the tailcoat (the lining I'll get from the Joann Fabrics nearest to my house) and the black pleather and white pleather for both my boot covers for Magician!Miku and Wedding!Miku.
Oh and I got a pattern for the leotard that I'm going to alter....
I'm thinking for her white vest for Magician!Miku, I'm going to use either a bridal satin or Casa satin. I think I'll use whichever looks less shiny, because I don't want an uber-shiny vest under a tailcoat made with a dance knit. (I'm making the whole thing a dance costume, since that's what she does in it--dance)
