At the risk of sounding whiny... whoever adds new conventions to the list of conventions on this website seems to be falling behind. I've attended three cons this year (Taiyou-con, Con-nichiwa, and AnimeLand TuCon), and I've only been able to add Taiyou-con to my list of cons I attended. The rest I'm still waiting for.

I can't seem to think of any *good* characters to cosplay besides Luka with pink hair. Who has pink hair? Sora's hair (Kaleido Star) is shorter and a different pink--it's more raspberry, but I'd totally cosplay her. Hmm.

mmm....I don't really like Lucky Star anymore, and Euphie wigs get really expensive. >.<
Isn't Sheryl's hair blonde? Or something.

WAIT WAIT WAIT. FLUTTERSHY. OR PINKIE PIE. YES. XD
Although I was totally getting ready for Kaleido Star. I love those costumes.

Okay okay. So...does this wig pass for Sora-colored? Or is it not purple enough?

That is a very, very good point.

There's Moka from Rosario + Vampire if you don't mind straightening the wig out a little. She's got really pretty long pink hair.

ALSO OH MY GOD BARNABY COAT AND WIG CAME IN TODAY.
I only ordered the coat a week ago. Holy crap, that was fast. Definitely recommending this ebay seller to others in the future. (Here's me camwhoring it up in it.) The wig isn't styled to my liking, so I'll probably go at it with some hairspray later, but it's got that nice amount of flip to it that I feel like his hair should have, so...yay!

That's what I was thinking too, yeah... here's to hoping!

We have to go there anyways to get my little sister's Halloween costume anyways. (>.> Seriously, sis, you live with a COSPLAYER. YOU SHOULD PICK SOMETHING COOL AND LET ME MAKE IT ffffffffff.)

Re: gathering, oh goodness, it's such an irritating process. I remember my first time, I used that clear "fishing wire" thread. Didn't work at all! Hahaha... er.

Ooh, she's pretty. I dunno if I could pull her off...BUT YAY PINK HAIRED CHARACTERS. I have to watch Rosario + Vampire now.

XDDDD
I think I just convinced myself to cosplay Sora.
I think this wig works, color-wise, right? XD
And now I REALLY want to make my baby brother a Johnathan (the seal) costume while he's still crawling. I wouldn't have time to legitimately sew something while he's still crawling, but I could totally do her default outfit with the overalls and white shirt..........>

It's pretty short, it only has 13 episodes, and there's a LOT of fanservice, so as long as you're okay with that, it's pretty entertaining. My best comparison is that it's a lot like Fruits Basket backwards. There's lots of girls that turn into creatures, but one boy that is just a normal human.

You need to cosplay Sora with your brother as Jonathan. NEED TO. For serious. <3

Kaleido Star is awesome and needs more love. o:

Went to my college's anime club meeting today, and... it was so much fun!!!
Everyone was really nice, and I made new friends, yaaaay!
Next meeting we're making plushies... except none of us know how to make plushies.
We'll figure this out... maybe.

I really hope I'll have my Wicked Lady costume complete in time for AWA. The wig is giving me hell right now and I haven't even started on the dress.

I have this strange urge to cosplay Zelda and I don't know why. I've already decided to do the red alternate dress from Super Smash Brother Brawl. I don't think I'd look good as a brunet, so I might use a black wig instead. I've already saved 25 reference pics and I plan on using a friend's capture device to get more shots. I have no idea when I'm actually going to start on this thing...

Fuckit, I'm doing a stitch on the outside of the bag. I can't get the damn thing to sew on the inside at all.... sooo now I have to pin the seams on the outside, fold in to make an even....seam? Piping? I dunno... ...and sew that all up. Ugh.

Bad news on my part- The football shoulder pads I was looking at for my Necroborg costume are too small for me. So unless I find one that's in my size, I might have to do something custom
