Some photos of mine couldn't be helped. But, it also doesn't help that a lot of the cosplayers I was in a photo with are seasoned vets when it comes to being infront of a camera and/or extroverts.

Though, I've used it as a learning experience and will be remaking all that was messed up through the pictures; jacket alterations to compensate for the harness, new pants that are more closer to the actual color, secondary jacket to allow me to get into the photos more easily, new cravat based on the designs other cosplayers had.

Need more practice...

Try splitting the wig off into small sections, then work on it that way. Also if you get "Mane 'n Tail" detangler, that works nicely too. The is the method I used for my wigs, and it has worked for me. Although it'll still be a pain.

Ahaha, a majority of the pictures I've found so far were from taken later on in the day, so I'm usually sweaty and about to collapse from exhaustion. I've decided that I'm not going to wear my big costumes all day anymore unless it's easy to take care of.

And that reminds me, I should probably add boning to my dress since it keeps scrunching upwards during photos. Now to find a boning tutorial...

On a last note, I'm still trying to decide what to make Jazz out of. Wonderflex and plexiglass is a little expensive for such a big project, so I might have to go with either pink insulation foam or regular craft foam. Does anyone with prop making experience have any advice for me? O:

I got my $50 Lowes gift card yesterday in the mail. I went to Lowes to get my Dewalt sander that I had my eye on for about a week. Spent about $80 more to get 1 surge protector for the house, another surge protector for the building, & outdoor extention cord for the building since there is no power in it yet. Today I was plan on sanding my prop but it had to rain.

BabyDoll778 and I are about to make her katana and add the finishing touches to her Babydoll cosplay. Should be fun. ^^ Also, I just finished my friend's Blondie outfit. The con is tomorrow and I'm so relieved to be done!

Flandre wig is here SUPER EARLY, didn't expect it until the end of the month! It's darker and more yellowy than the pictures... and has a detachable ponytail even though it wasn't supposed to... o___O I don't even think it's the same as the one I payed for, but whatever I guess, it still looks good xDDD

I am debating what cosplay to make after leo. I am thinking austrian succesion!spain, dagger, maylene or child gilbert nightray. Hm....

Speaking of wigs, I am really loving the ones on fm-anime. I may start ordering my wigs from them from now on.

Somehow, even with the conclusion of AX, I'm almost left feeling that there is almost an even greater expectation to get even crazier next year.

I kind of want the picture someone from the inside of the halls took of me descending the stairs with my fully deployed wings...

God I can't find ANY pictures of myself from Anime Expo. Honestly, no one really did take pictures (Day 0, a bunch of creeper guys took pix of me... don't expect to see those again.) until Day 3, when I got to walk around the convention a bit. Then I was stopped every 10 seconds for pictures. But... you'd think I'd find at least 1. All I have are the ones my friends took 8|;;

World is Mine? Like, the Miku song?

If I had a photoshoot based on that, I'd probably wait in anticipation too xD;;
