My friend Bill is rubbing off on me. I'm trying to find a wig for Lucille (See my last post in this thread for over-detailed and fangirly description of his hair) and I'm working myself up that the wig has to be the perfect balance of long, wavy and curly, and I'm afraid it's going to be too curly, not enough or just too short.

Gah, this is silly, but I just want to do him justice! *Spins in circle, holding my head in frustration.*

(My Friend Bill is a perfectionist.)

I've been recruited for a dance competition team at Aki-Con the night I arrive in Bellevue. I get to compete after working for 10 hours and rushing to the air port.

Aki-Con schedule, Y U so strangely set up?

I can't decide what wig to use for Rei Miyamoto. I'm looking at Fantasy Sheep, because I really like how thick their wigs are, and they're super cheap on Taobao, even without an agent. o3o

Wig 1: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=10191503559&
Wig 2: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=8459387589&

Though if anyone has any other wig suggestions, that'd be awesome, too!

So I'm going to take up scrapbooking again! <3

I'm going to make a cosplay/convention scrapbook. :'D I'm going to buy the scrapbook I picked out tomorrow and I'll also get these great cherry blossom stickers I found that would be perfect for Sakura photos... There was also some awesome sparkly card stock that would work great with photos of Girlfriend and I as Pimp!Kaito and Diva!Miku. 8D aaaaaaa this is going to be so much fun <3

So, ahaha, guess what!
Ants. F***ing ants, I hate you more than roaches right now.
So they were on my dresser.
And Mom was killing all of em.
So she took off my Alois wig to clean under it, and now...
Every single bit of the style is gone. The bobby pins to hold the bangs up aren't working, the Got2B isn't there anymore.
And I don't wanna re-do it before AWA. Maybe I should just be Ciel...or Matryoshka Len if I find a good hoodie/gloves/makeup/some cardboard at the craft store and all the others we're visiting today. Or I could get off my arse and fix this wig.
AUGH TOO MANY DECISIONS. But I do really need to cosplay from BB, not only for a voice actor I wanna meet, but for the shoot, since there are possible problems with it...I don't wanna seem like a chicken. Granted, I could always just go while I'm in Len to explain why, but still...

^Hmmm looks like a sign. No Alois for you. Ceil wins again.Plus your Len wig will be here in plenty of time. Just bring several cosplays to AWA and change while you're there.

I was thinking about doing this as well. Just haven't really got round to doing it or found the time. It's great for sticking photos in, drawing out your own references and notes. Providing material examples [so if you come round to doing the cosplay again, you know what fabric to use]. Good for writing out thoughts and what you can improve on next time.
I think when I've got extra cash, I'll go buy a nice book. I got lots of old art stuff I've spent so much money on, time to use it up.

It's alright. xD; Honestly, I expected it. I just knew in my gut that she wasn't going to be any different, but I wanted to cosplay and chill with Axelai and Rachel (whose coscom name I still don't remember LOL.) But the other day I officially cut ties from her and unfriended/blocked her everywhere so I'll never have to deal with her again, and Girlfriend said she plans on doing the same cause she's finally going to start sticking up for me. =n=

Have fun! :3 Unfortunately the 40% off sale on most of the scrapbooks at Michael's just ended, but there are some nice ones still on sale for 50% off so they're only about $6 or so. There's also going to be a 50% off coupon next week (at least that's what I was told). I hope that helps at all. xD;

Hmm...I'm so picky about cosplays. I'm almost finished with Female Shizuo and Eruka Frog so now I need to find something else to work on

Ehehe, I don't live in the US. But I did dig out an old artbook I haven't used yet! Thanks for the tips anyway though!
Have fun making your one!
