What kind of fabric do I use on a top hat?
Ugh, I'm so mad I forgot to look when I was at Joann Fabrics!

Took a seam ripper to my Anarchy Panty dress, and now I have two pieces to work on and make adjustments separately~
Though, I will say I feel sorry for the people who paid full retail price for this dress ($70, I paid $20), and it has such weak seams. I cut a couple of them, and like a whole side of the skirt came loose from the top.

So today while making a dress I almost dropped a pinned piece of fabric on the floor and by reflex quickly caught it with my hand against my leg... And well, pretty much punched a pin straight into my flesh. It hurt. XD

End of sewing horror story.


I'm actually so motivated these days that I spent 7 hours in a row yesterday and 12 hours today working. XO

So today I win the fail award at making patterns. Made it *exactly* twice as large as it needed to be. Stupid 4-panels-per-leg pants. And me not realizing that 4/leg=8/waist.

Last night I figured out and drew all the measurements on the pvc pipe for a bow I'm making, and I went to bed stoked to work on it today... It hasn't stopped raining long enough for me to work on it, and sadly, it's not something I can do inside the house.

But I've spent the day reading One Piece...so I suppose it's not that bad. xD

Bah, I need to make a cosplay-only Facebook.
I can't even complain about my cousins misusing my wigs when I told them not to, without my mom demanding I delete the status cause it'll offend my aunt.
Well MY BAD. I never knew I wasn't allowed to complain about children misusing things that aren't theirs. 8|
....Making new FB now.
EDIT: TA-DA~ http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ema...00002620731555

Friend request added!

Cosplay-only pages are extremely convenient. It's a bit of a hassle to check a personal and a cosplay page, but in the long run, very worth it.

Accepted!

I rarely will ever use my personal Facebook now, but yes, VERY worth it. No more hearing from my mom to delete every little thing because it's either odd or could somehow be possibly offending.
...I really fxxxing hope I sent that message to all the right people. XD It was like...40 of em. Seems about right for someone as antisocial as me.

I want to go and run around somewhere in one of my cosplays. But sadly, it's no fun to do it alone, and all my cosplaying friends live in LA. Which is a 2-hour drive from here. Dl

Just accepted your request!

I love having a cosplay FB. Haven't been on my real life one properly since, and no regrets. I can put whatever I want on there and none of my family can bitch about it.

I'm anxious about being able to make the scythe prop and turtleneck shirt for my stein cosplay before a cosplay event coming up in two weeks, and I can't even buy the materials let alone find a grey turtleneck to suit my needs until I get my next paycheck a week from now. D=
