I just got my finger extensions yesterday, and I am very pleased with them! Now I need to figure out how to make longer, but sturdy claws for them so they won't break or bend... *glances over at a cardboard sheet in her closet*

Uuuugh. SO SLEEPY. No idea why, either. It seems that handsewing pleather, and then doing hand-embroidery, means I'll just need to pass out tired at 6:30 when I only woke up at 11:30. BLUGH. But I can't even take a nap, because my neighbours are mowing their lawn. And they're AWFUL at it, because it takes them two hours for a small strip of grass that's maximum forty by fifteen feet and all flat land. I could get it done half an hour. Hell, my Mom has a square acre of yard and with her riding mower, can get it ALL finished in under an hour.
...so now I'm torn between try to doze off (and get yelled at because I sleptthrough having to start dinner), try to shake it off with some caffeine/sugar, or just slouch in front of the computer for the rest of the evening where I'll be tired, but not fall asleep.

So, I won a contest category for Kintoki-con, oh, about two months ago. Supposedly I was suppose to receive my winnings, oh, a long time ago. No dice yet. My e-mails go unanswered. I'd love it if this staff would get there act together. That would be oh, so wonderful.

Why do I do this to myself? This is the second time something like this happens to me. Dear Homestuck, I have plans. You are not in those plans. I haven't even really read you, I've just been on your tvtropes page following your plot, clicking links and reading random pages in a random order. Not to mention I'm new to cosplaying and I would screw up gray paint incredibly badly. But for some reason I really want to cosplay Fairy!Vriska. Damn it.

So, so, so excited now for this Honeydew cosplay. Especially now that I have a Xephos! I'm currently trying to find out some good places to buy cardboard boxes and I'm going to find out what sizes would be necessary to keep this cosplay to scale. Doing a cosplay from scratch like this is quite intimidating.

Suddenly find myself not giving a flying shit about every other cosplay...

So I ordered my wig yesterday and I can't stop checking my email for a tracking number XP I need to get this shipping anxiety taken care of. It's like this any time I order a wig lol

How do you guys keep yourselves occupied and not twitching out over a wig/cosplay/prop/commission/what have you?

I hate when you find a really good pattern for a cosplay(s)...months after you've already gotten a pattern(s) or started work for it! ><

Crap, was going to use some green bias tape I got from my grandmother for this outfit but after comparing the color it's just too bright for my taste. I do still have the fabric I was originally going to make the tape out of but I was hoping I could save myself some time, especially since I think that making it is a real pain. >.>

I am so not happy right now. This girl makes me want to tear my hair out! Everyone loves her, but she is so rude to me! She's just lucky that I'm moving or else I would tell her off!
asdfghjkl

Oh well.

Troll makeup is harder than I thought o__o

I had a bunch of Ben Nye, so to test it out, I was putting it on my friend. First layer went on okay. It dried a bit, so I added more. And more to the areas that needed it.

It fucking CAKED on. DX Really annoying. And some places it just... didn't work out. And it'd smear and just... ugh. Not fun at all.

I can't wait to get PAX :|

Did you use translucent powder?

On my side... UGH RAPUNZEL! Patters were so easy to find, why isn't fabric? T_T
