YAY!! for supportive parents!!!

Hmmm, funny thing about cosplaying characters that have black/dark eyes. You still kinda look like that character the next morning as well. Grrrr stupid waterproof eyeliner. :-/

Is up sick, yet trying to figure out if I should get my Norway cosplay commissioned or if I should just buy it off ebay. Money issues and all that T.T

I'm always afraid of offending someone whether it be by not properly executing a cosplay, or by saying something cosplay related that someone else does not agree with. It makes me so nervous, that sometimes I'm tempted to just admire cosplay from afar and say and do nothing about it. o.o

Definitely! I didn't see you at all at Sakura con, even though I was looking for Haunted. I'll probably be there the whole weekend... Or only Friday and Saturday, not sure yet. (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

@Celia Rose: If you're bringing Panty then I feel like I should bring a PaSwG cosplay too...( ̄^ ̄)ゞ Not sure who though, since it depends on whether or not I actually make it in time with two of my in progress costumes...

I'm suddenly afraid that my plan for making a tutu-esque petticoat for Draculaura today may not end well. I think I have the basic idea (short layer of netting closest to the body, longest layer being what the skirt will actually sit on), but after searching around it looks like I may have been going about it wrong. Actually, that may be better in the end; I can just use rectangles of netting instead of trying to make circle skirts from it (that's gonna take a lot of fabric). I'm stressing myself out over here!

Edit: Yep. Definitely been going about it the wrong way. I think I've got it figured out now, though. Just use rectangles and gather them onto a rectangle of cotton to act as a yoke. Okay. Deep breath. I can do this, and it won't be a disaster. I hope.

The Denver County fair is turning into an event of convention proportions. TOTALLY unexpected and TOTALLY unprepared. Giving my steampunk fashion panel speech on a *real* stage... without a powerpoint. This'll be fun...

And since it's mutating into such a large event, I decided to go over-the-top with my sunday outfit. Wig and the girliest makeup I've ever worn (I bought lipstick for the first time in my life), with the goal of being unrecognizable to friends.

Thanks so much, I appreciate it. : D I found the entire set of PVs for Real Face, so I'll sit down and see what I can pull from those. Probably after I get back from vacation, though.
I love Gold! And the Engrish in it is pretty gold in itself 8D "I gonna be fine, it's too big question makes how a big man come along~". And the set design is pretty rocking. That would have been awesome but such a pain in the arse too :x

No problem :3 I love the Real Face PVs, although I was butthurt because I feel like the Ueda version didn't have enough Ueda in it, since he's my favourite 8(

I'm really happy-I just finished Spike Spiegel's jacket and it came out great!! Now I just need to whip up some pants and the shirt and cosplay done! I think this is the quickest one I've done so far. Now this weekend will be filled with lots of prop making...

Pinning successful!
Tho, my sister kept commenting on the dress, and it was really funny. xD I'm glad she was such a good sport to help me out while she's hosting a friend from out of state for the next two weeks. Said friend got to see my room, too, and was surprised that I'm into anime can cosplay. Apparently I don't give off those vibes??

I'm bringing Panty because I can't bring Yoko. It's too expensive to ship my rifle back and forth for Aki-Con and Sakura-Con (I'm flying to Seattle for both trips). That, and I need to spread out my costume debuts. I was going to hold off on Panty until Sakura-Con, but then I would have been wearing three new costumes in one weekend. "Orz

I have a pattern I could use for the jacket, and I could just use the gloves for Bro. I'd need the pattern for the shirt, I was planning on getting one like that anyway so it's no big deal there. I'd just buy the wig and ask my friend to style it so it be awesome.....

I need to stop with the Otome game turned anime's...first Starry Sky (which I'm gonna be Tsubasa) and now this T_T
Haha, I feel the same way. I want to cosplay Haruka although her eyes scare me so much. >_>
Working on...

Sewing machine crapped out on me whilst doing stretch stitching last night. DX Five times I rethreaded and adjusted and five times it jammed within about three stitches. Never happened before, but at least it worked fine when I changed stitch styles, and at least that's all the stretch I need for that costume.

So now I have handsewing again. Hurrah!

Hopefully my father will be available this weekend so I can borrow his electric jig saw. Otherwise, I have no idea how I'll manage to get these blades cut out without hurting myself. T_T

Four pairs of baseball pants almost done. The piping isn't completely exact, but it's close enough to pass. You would think that a major league design would be easier to recreate. And yet...

Made some real progress on Grell's chainsaw yesterday. Today is looking like a lot of sanding in triple digit temperature (that's 38-39 degress Celsius for you non-American folks. ). Oh well. It has to get done and it's not cooling down any time soon.

So... I'm back home again. But it's almost 11 p.m and I am suoer exhausted because I got to be at around 4-5 a.m this morning <.<

TOMORROW I will work on cosplay. Either my Oruhacosplay, or my wip-costumes.
And I am still debating whether to registrer for the con now, or save the money for wigs.
Only safe thing is that I reeeeally want to cosplay Jade (Harley) @_@
Currently planning/working on:
Supergirl (Adam Hughes ver.)
Babydoll (Sucker Punch)
