She looked at my Yoko cosplay pictures and pointed out my underboob right away. I didn't have the heart to tell her that it's intentional. Orz

Almost done with the pants/shorts. I think I'll re-do them later before the convention. All i need to do now is hem the evil pants legs and fix he top where the elastic is.
I think I like making skirts oh so much more. I'll have to get use to making pants... Most of the cosplays I plan to make next involve pants, or shorts.

Funny thing, I've made all kinds of fancy stuff, but I've never made my own pants. I plan to remedy that at some point and learn how to sew proper pants (and I need a new pair of pyjama pants anyway), but it still does come across as pretty odd. At least, to me.

Suppose to be taking a break from making armor but yet I find myself working on the armor from the cover of Fallout New Vegas.

After cutting 34 pages out I have no feeling in my right hand but yet I will probably fold all the pieces so I can have this helm finished by tomorrow evening. I will have this thing finished by the end of August.
Upcoming Cons:
Wondercon '14
AX '14
SDCC '14
Currently working on:
Season 1 Jon Snow
Original Character- Assassin
Sniper ODST

At a birthday party sleepover full of Homestuck fans.

I am now dubbed the Vriska/Davesprite of the group. We had a mob of peeps drawing fanart in one corner.

I also... well. My friend made me Vriska horns out of paper to wear (as my actual horns I haven't finished AND left them at home; derp). They actually looked pretty okay XD Silly enough to be unwearable at a con, but cute enough to wear all day.

We weren't exactly cosplaying, but we were at the same time. Its hard to explain. Except it was fun. And makes me wanna cosplay as Karkat and make a thousand grub plushies and velcro them all over myself.
Upcoming Conventions:
SacAnime, Anime LA, Anime Conji

~Cure deviantART Tumblr Fan Page~

Vote for me at the Otaku House costume contest!!

After looking through various cosplay photos and character art, I got another cosplay idea for another original design for one of my characters... Are you freaking kidding me?! I'm not even done designing my other original outfits yet! >.<

she can kiss my you-know-what 'cos you-know-who is in control!”

Hopefully I'm going to get that peachskin today and actually start on this stupid dress! It shouldn't be too hard until I get to the embellishments and electrical stuff. On the other hand, I already have my netting for this petticoat, so I could start that today. But I wanna keep deconstructing this amazing Sleeping Beauty picture and see how hard it would really be to make that dress. Gah! World, stop giving me ideas!

Soo,with cosplay ADD you HAVE to work on whatever cosplay strikes your mood at the exact moment that you're in the mood to work on it.Otherwise nothing will get done.The good thing is, you can set aside a cosplay you lose interest in due to said ADD and return to it later when the mood strikes again. Either way,this disease is gonna cost ya,but is still cheaper to live with than,say, alcoholism. But may yet drive you to the same end XD

I also just really like designing these things. I've even made contact cards for a photographer friend of mine. I used to design ads and layout for the newspaper when I was in high school, and it's something that's become my guilty pleasure~
Good luck with your printer! Your cards are always cool, so I had been wondering. (^_^; ) Good luck deciding on a design, since cardstock can be a little expensive.

On my mind about cosplay: Oda Nobunaga's armor... Need to look up armor tutorials... Why did I decide to do this right now... ヽ( ̄д ̄; )ノ=3=3=3
