Discussed next cosplay plans with The Group, even though we know it won't be for a while due to financial, school, and work reasons. We made a final decision and NOW IT'S ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT. Rawr.

And...I get a sword. :3

orz Late replies are late. But these last two weeks have been sort of insane. ;; (Internet problems, I got sick, my dog tried to break my laptop, and problems with extended family popped up and caused further havoc.) And then I sorta stopped checking everything short of Tumblr & upcoming con's forum. . .

Thank you. <3 All the "fun" stuff happened after my birthday, so it actually was pretty awesome. c:

I've seen yours, and they were one of the reasons I decided to add the boots to the suggestion list~
I did manage to embarrass myself because I forgot to leave room to bend my knee the first time I laced them up. 8D;


On the cosplay front, in between different issues, I managed to get several things done/decided.
  • Ordered wigs for Fem!(2P!America, England, and S.Italy)
  • Fell out of love with Fem!Prussia's and bought a new one
  • Bought my fourth brooch for an accessory [Hopefully this one works 8|]
  • Bought more accessories for various Kumo cosplay
  • Randomly found scarves for Elsea and Haqua, even if they're pretty far into the future cosplaywise
  • Bought most of the fabric needed to finish off Kumori's costumes
  • Found out Sakura '12 isn't possible due to the fact term starts a week/two weeks beforehand for myself and my partner in crime, and we'd need to take the week off for travel and we'd need to visit and chill with a friend who's moving up there
  • But AX '12 works perfectly so we're going to that instead
  • Friends have convinced everyone around me that letting me go off alone to Yaoi-Con this year is like letting a sheep wander to its demise
  • (Yeah, thanks for the vote of confidence guys. 8|)
  • ((Even if they're probably entirely correct in their reasoning))
  • But I digress; For-sure cons for next year are Fanime, AX, Kumori, and Yaoi~
  • And agreed to squeeze AppleJack, Fem!Spy, Panty, Angelina Duress, and even more Hetalia in for next year
  • Planning Portal cosplay, too. And I am so glad this isn't for another year at least, because my estimate so far is $300. Andthat'slowballinghowmuchthegunwillcost. ;;
Shipping wise, I'm both impressed with FS's within-China (Agent placed the order and it made it to them that day), and massively disappointed in CosplayWig (Order placed around 1AM and I paid for faster shipping, yet it took five days to ship, and I think they only did so because I sent an email 8|).

And now I'm going to go finish a Tumblr post before cutting out and getting things sewn together while I await an invoice~

Mmmmmmm

I got home from a Beerlympic 1½ hour ago and I've been lazy ever since. Debating whether to go work on Gyarados, or just take a break untill the wig gets here.

In the meanwhile, I am gathering cosplay ideas

Just ordered my very first long wig for an upcoming costume. So excited!! And nervous. I've seen what happens to long wigs ((tangling like a BEAST)). But hopefully since this one is just straight, it won't be that much of an issue. AND for the costume, it'll be in a ponytail. But still, it's 100 cm of kanekalon. That's a lot of synthetic hair o.o

It'll still do its best to tangle. When you get it, hit it with some kind of detangler (Motions Oil Sheen and silicone lubricant sprays both work rather well) fresh out of the bag and comb that through -- it'll help coat the fibres and keep them from getting quite as tangly down the line.

Spent morning break sewing a comb into the front of my new Koumyou wig. The braid makes it awfully back-heavy, and I have enough trouble getting wigs to stay put to begin with ... <_< Hoping this'll work when paired with a billion pins jabbed into my scalp.
... now I'm just wondering what my coworkers think when they walk by and see the wig head sitting there. XD

BRAIN why do you do this to me? Even though I'm working on my Fem!America, and am planning Halloween!Hungary and Kamikirimusi, I suddenly have the burning desire to crossplay as a genderbent Panty. I'd need a genderbent Stocking, so maybe I can convince my friend to- wait, why am I even thinking about this? I have too many ideas damnit!

I'm pondering if this may be a possible wig for my Cheza cosplay.

I am seriously about to throw this blouse out a window. I had to rip out the bottom stitches to pull the lining apart so I could get to the zipper to rip it out and replace it with the correct one, but in the process I restitched the back seam too close to the edge and had to rip that all out AGAIN. I'm so close to being done and it's deciding now to fuck up majorly (or maybe I'm just being stupid) Dx

I've been working so hard on my cosplay that I've whooshed through it. Now I'm at a point where I'm like "Woah, calm down yo, I need to stop for a while and take a break". I'm so far ahead @_@ But I've got a few things left to do which I'd like to finish before I go on holiday..
