I somehow made my femmy!England skirt longer in the back than in the front! It looks so weird to me, somehow after I make the jacket I'll have to sew the back up a bit.
I can't wait to make the jacket! ;A; Its going to be my first cosplay that wasn't ordered online!

Slightly frustrated. The truck that should have picked up my fabric from Spokane (eastern Washington) and dropped it off in Lynnwood (western Washington) yesterday apparently *just* changed its route. Like, as of Saturday. Which means they now have to UPS it to the store instead. Thankfully they're not going to charge me shipping, but I was hoping to pick it up today. Got a coupon that's only good through Saturday, and I've got an all-day babysitting gig tomorrow and Friday, as well as Bon Odori this weekend.

On the brighter side, I found a solid red tie for KID. And I had my meeting with the friend who will make my top hat yesterday. I do wish he could give me an estimate on what it'll cost. I'm not afraid of him overcharging or anything--he just hasn't done much commission work and so isn't sure what he should charge--but I do need to budget for it.

A friend and I were discussing our cosplay plans for a convention in my area that is coming up in october! She told me that she wants to cosplay as Sealand from Hetalia and Near from Death note. I plan to make a Finland cosplay for this convention. Both of us will eventually ask one of my friends if she wants to be my Sweden and Her father.
;u; I hope she will cosplay sweden with us; we would be a whole family! (and cue finland rant )
though I don't think I would make a good Finland. Not just to her but to cosplay him in general. I feel way to tall to cosplay him even though I'm 5 feet 7 inches as a young teenager, and the sweden I was talking about is 5 feet 4 inches. Finland is a cute guy; I don't think i'm cute at all. I have too many flaws in my body that I feel so self-concious about. I don't want to make a badly made version of his outfit and end up having the outfit rip while wearing it. ;_; I keep thinking I'll end up as a uncute finland that woouldn't be good enough. Gah!

Well, My friend may make her Sealand outfit; she hasn't sewn before so I may help her on the outfit. ^-^ That will be fun!

I found a video of someone with an awesome April Fools Day!Russia outfit and looked really good in it. While mine is crappy and I dont take good photo's and etc etc etc... I wish there was a way to beat that feeling cause I hand sew'd that entire thing, worked magic to get the fur, and found a way to bind in it. Its the first cosplay I sewed entirely for myself... but I look like a fool. Which might actually be the point of the outfit but you know if I should next to the other Russia, I'd look stupid and fat. I should have expected this really, my other cosplays I really wouldn't care but this one was special I guess.

I feel like giving up making my cosplays and having photo's taken of me.

Well, today I thought I'd go and shorten the top of the leotard today, considering that the top was slightly big, so I took it in. But if I have to shorten the top, I would have to shorten the bottom of the leotard as well. But if I shorten the bottoms, I won't be able to fit in them anymore, so I just took in the top. Once I did that, I binned the top and bottom together and guess what? It's still perfect. The top didn't end up being larger than the bottoms as they came together nicely whilst pinning it.
Later I'll try it on then possibly stitch it up then go back to sorting out the skirt.

Reconsidering of going to this one convention since my costumes are primarily targetted towards anime/manga rather than comics.

Might just pass on it...

Aw, thanks. :3 Although I'll be using my graduation robes until I have proper Hogwarts robes, haha.

And last night I printed out a few Dark Marks on tattoo paper...and forgot to invert them. So the snake will be facing the wrong direction when I wear it. I doubt anyone will notice, but before I printed it, I had just said out loud to a friend, "Oh, I still need to invert the design." Fail. XD

New idea: Ixion (from FFX) ginjinka. He's a lightning unicorn. How cool is that?
