Just bought my first wig in months O_o I had even forgotten the password to my paypal and everything <.< On the bright side, I now have one wig on the way, and only need to get 2-3 more...

I really hate that there's so much of the same work to do on Gyarados. It feels like all I'm doing is stitching beige fabric onto blue, and the thread keeps jamming and the stitches aren't close enough >.<

Hahaha. So I usually have a picture of the next character I want to cosplay set as my wallpaper. My dad looks at it, goes, "That's cool, what's that from?" I tell him, and then explain that it's the next costume on my list. His response? "You're kidding. What are you going to make it out of?...Good luck with that!"

Which totally just makes me want to do it even more xD Not only because I love the character design, but to show him that yes, it's possible, and I'm going to accomplish it.

Working on my cosplay tomorrow, hopefully I can fix it where it was too small :|

But first I have an interview with a retail store, it's for weekends, 7 hours a week. So if I get rejected, I know it's not due to availability! I really need a job! Hopefully all goes well in the interview!

Good luck! Hope it goes well for you :3

I literally lay in bed watching out the window through my blinds for the (quite attractive) postman. He didn't bring my wigs >:I

Thanks! >w<

Haha, it's funny that we all wait for the mail man by looking out the window like meerkats.

Is it just me, or is it true that the more time you spend working on something the worse it starts to look to you? I've been working on a sword for three days, when I first painted the stripes on I thought "This looks great!" After an hour of perfecting the stripes I thought "This looks like crap! Maybe I shouldn't even use it!" But when I show it to my mom she loves it. I guess I need a break. I'm almost finished though!

Oh yeah! That's how I feel about most of my stuff, primarily my wings. I look at it in so many pictures and think I could've done better when in truth it's the best I could've given with the skill level and resources available at the time.

So....I didn't leave big enough seam allowances on my vest. I'll make another if I have time....
Dearest vest, go die in a hole. D:<
....anyway, I finished my leotard last night, made my bootcover mockup, started my top hat, and continued on my headphones.
I have to buy zippers today, and probably more felt for my top hat. Oh and more paperclay. And pink paint for the headphones.

Edit: Oh hey. Did you know that you can spraypaint hairnets? XD

Last night was actually productive. Grommets, pinning, wood for props bought and marked up, mask sealed ...
... and now my sister's staying over at my place again. I love her, but I really wish she'd go away already so that I can work in peace and quiet. *fumes*

Sewing theory is way easy, but I keep making stupid mistakes.. It just gets annoying.
On the other hand, the props are so much fun! Almost ready! ^__^

My best friend has just decided to do a Hatsune Miku cosplay and I always help her with styling/taking care of her wigs.

I am dreading the long wig because I know the horrors that come with it. ;~;
