o:! KAT-TUN fan!

I haven't actually started on the costumes yet. I need to crank out three variations of Koki's hat by October (they'll be red, dark purple, and bright orange) for me and my friends to wear. My friend wants to do Koki's costume (but with a purple hat) and I want to make Nakamaru's (with a red hat), and the third in our group might just have the (orange) hat only. We probably won't have the actual costumes done by Aki-Con, though, due to time constraints. .-. But I will totally start posting pictures when I do start.

(And also, sometime in the future I may need your help identifying which guy is which in the Real Face PV. o: I can't find any official pictures of them in their red Real Face outfits, so I'll have to screencap it first.)

Yes, yes, come and say Hi to me too! Aki is so small we'll definitely be passing my each other in the halls sometime. Unlike Sakura-Con, during which I did not see a single person I was looking for.

When the Aki-Con schedule comes out, I'll be able to figure out which day I'll be bringing Haunted (I'm most likely commuting from home on Capitol Hill every day and Haunted is not bus-friendly), but it will most likely end up being Saturday.

My hair is naturally almost-black, even though I dye it, so that might be why a black wig works well with me :3 thanks!

That is really awesome! I've always loved the Kaizokuban outfits. Johnny's Entertainment groups always have the most flamboyant outfits :'D

And I'd be happy to help out with identifying It's a shame I lost my KAT-TUN photo folder, I swear I used to have some good shots of their Real Face outfits D:

Cosplaying on a budget can be a fun challenge. I enjoy scraping props together out whatever materials I have laying around. However, when I need a specialty item I can't make or find locally, I get antsy about my spending limit. Darn my want for a good wooden sword or two!! Darn it, I say!! It also hurts I'm afraid to spend my money in case an emergency rises up. I try to not spend too frivolously.

Just got one more layer to do for Draculaura's petticoat (mock-up stage). I can't believe how much fabric I'll need for it

Greaaaat..... I been planning on buying a cosplay for about a week, and I was getting my mom to order it, as I was counting the money to give her for it..... she got the idea of a "mother and daughter sewing project" and was telling me it would look very pretty is we made it.........

Oh mom, as much as I do like sewing with you, I prefer to just to buy it and forget about it in tell it comes, but now im sewing it with my mom.... At lest i don't have to worry about getting the size wrong, or using the wrong fabric.

Recently I switched creme make-up brands and I found a stock of my old brand on my desk, so I thought I'd use it up and try a cosplay design that isn't Ryuk. Man, I can't believe I EVER brought that stuff to a convention. It was cracking before I was even done putting it all on, and to make sure I could get a somewhat good picture -to document my weirdness at four a.m.- I had to put on about eight layers. It was disgusting.

I went through three tubes of the white, and I think I still have three left? I might try another character if I can think of one, because even though this stuff is awful I feel bad throwing it away. xD

Here's a link to a shot of it, if any of you are curious. xD

My gabardine for Kaitou KID's tux finally came in! Went to the store yesterday to pick it up, along with everything else I needed, came to less than $40 with my coupon and sales. Still need to find men's shoulder pads, and probably pick up some HQ lining once I get the fabric for my cape back from the friend who's making my hat, but I'm pleased with the overall cost of this costume so far.

A wee bit worried about the pattern I have. My friend (same one who's making the hat) warned me about Vogue. The fabric requirements were a little unclear, and I haven't even really looked at the instructions yet. Banking on my prior experience and intuition getting me through. As long as I know what goes where and assemble it in roughly the right order, I should be all right.

I just need to add the tails to my tailcoat and I"m done~! Finally! I just need to remake the vest and do the bootcovers (oh shoot-- the bootcovers!) and then all that's left is little details. I guess I'm doing a lot of sewing at the hotel? XP

You wouldn't happen to be making a Kenny cosplay, would you? :3

First set of vampire fangs ordered! Looks like Draculaura might actually get done first. I should have a scoreboard or something.
