Guh, turns out that the shirt I decided to reuse has a few fit problems, not surprising since it was one of the earlier things that I sewed but I'm trying to figure out why I didn't fix it back then. Gotta take in the torso (simple enough) and make the sleeves shorter (not as simple since they have cuffs but I have a few ideas) and figure out how to starch the collar so it stands up a bit more.
As for things I've actually done recently, glued on the bias tape to Annie's armwarmers and they look fine, really glad I was lazy and bought bias tape instead of making my own since it looks nicer, really like the color too.

Why is it so hard to find people already cosplaying or willing to cosplay people you need! I' going to eventually do The Summoner from Homestuck and Human! Starscream from TFA is in the works for ALA but despite my efforts I can't find somone willing to be my Grand Highblood or Megatron D8> Worried about the latter more than the former.

So my friends (cosplaying as my clones) and I are going to pass out applications for Megatrons at ALA if I don't get one in time.

Maybe no one wants to be your Grand Highblood cuz he's FREGGIN SCARY. And that hair. THAT HAIR.

I like his pants though.

DAMN THIS FREAKING POCKET.
ARGH.
THREE TIMES I've tried to redo this pocket to fit my cellphone into on a bag... EVERY time it keeps ending up too small to eitherget in or out, or it'll go in, but fat chance of pulling it out. Time number four and I'm getting REALLY sick of it. It better work THIS time. Especially because it's pleather, and I have to sew it by hand.
...and then I can start on that bag strap, which is even worse on my fingers. ugggh. But on the bright side, I've made the schoolbag for absolutely nothing. Somehow I amassed about five metres of 60" leatherlook vinyl over the past two years.

xD Nice. But yeah, it's like I've been wanting to cosplay heroes and total angels, and suddenly the demeanor of my cosplay desires take a very sharp turn for the worse. o3o;

I know how you feel. I'll be dressed as a Hero or a really good guy one day and then the next day I'm some psycho creeper.

And as for what is on my mind:

Sometimes I just want to take a vacuum cleaner to my dog, because it seems like getting all of her hair off my Ludwig pants is a task worthy of Sisyphus.

Like telling the 13 year old not to 'claim' someones boobs because while yeah you won't get in trouble the 20-something you are touching will. The older ones just walk away from the younger ones. Personally, I feel like I just need to say something, like 'I've been there done that and thats something you don't want to be'.

The older ones are more mature but they are more 'drama' and I need to watch very closely and pay much closer attention to who pisses off who and such. They also tend to drink and invite me to bars, which I'm not interested in and I'm not 21 anyway.
This.
I tend to stick to my cosplay group, because they're closer to my age and less....strange. Most of the cosplayers in my town that don't respect social boundaries are much younger than me, like 13-15. The ones that are 16 to 19 are just....yeah.
I was so happy to meet the Beasts of Hentai, because they're close to my age, like cosplay, and aren't completely weird. :'D

AAAAHHHH I really want a proper shoot as Yoko at Sakura-Con. ;3;
LOOK AT THIS.
This is the best photo of my Yoko cosplay to date. I can't wait to get the hi-res image from the photographer so I can spam my dA and other cosplay sites~

I need to find a cosplay group close to me age T_T everyones ether younger or older then me and people I do find that are my age they fit nicely with the younglings. (There is a maturity gap there with people my age because I graduated a year before them.)

I should probably join the anime club at UH, since they are close to my age. I just...haven't. lol
