Another weekend gone, and I'm just getting my top and skirt dyed up. T_T Doesn't help that my sister's still staying with me and is hypersensitive to smells and that limits when I can work on things, or that I lost almost all of yesterday to waiting for the pest control guys (who never showed up), but still.

There's a reason I hate living with other people. <_<

Better get cracking this week. I still want to try to get all this stuff done ... somehow.

Okay, I found a hairtie so I took pictures with my wigs! It was a lot of fun to wear wigs again after a long while. XD
Brown wig
Pink wig I didn't realize how long the bangs would be. XD I need to trim them when I go home in two weeks. I just hope the bangs don't end up messed up.

Found some skulls at Michael's today that I noticed that, with some paint and other slight modifications, could work really well as props for Girlfriend's Dead Master cosplay. I think after my 3:30 am stocking shift on Tuesday (which ends when the store opens) I'll grab two of those and maybe a couple of the plastic black and silver chains and use those 50% off coupons. c:

I swear, it seems like half my paycheck is already going right back to them... xD;;;

Wow. That was a crazy summer! I am back to doing school stuff and all that and am finally a bit settled in college =) ... but of course now I want to cosplay so much! I have so much going on right now figuring out classes and what things to join etc, but I just really want to make a cosplay =( Well, thus is life... I guess I'll wait it out and start by finishing up my engineering and linguistics hw and stop browsing cosplay.com =D Then maybe I'll have a bit of time to work on something....

I just thought of something.

I really hope the HotD group doesn't want my costume to be blood-splattered. I just spent a bunch of money to get the costume, so I want it to stay clean. ;_____;

Well, at least til I find a method that's washable.

Wheelchairs are pretty 'expensive', the good, comfortable ones range about 150-1000+. Try not to get too irritated getting around in a wheelchair XD
I used Light Gray Snazaroo for mine c: It wasn't too difficult.

And yeah, the good ones are. Most Tav cosplayers I know got shitty ones from thrift stores xDD;; Knowing me, I'd hijack a Disney one just to be a dork. BUT NO, thats illegal.

I probably won't even get a wheelchair for cons, though, out of respect for peeps space. Unless its a small con where I wouldn't run into anyone.

I also want to start working on my next cosplays, but I'm still a bit unsure what I'll do next.. it depends on what my twin sister plans to do for the moment, we have quite some pair cosplays planned for next year.

I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants I hate making pants.

*ahem*

Had to rip apart and recut the pants for Shusui last night because of a trimming error. Grrrr. Shouldn't be more than a couple of hours to fix, but there's never enough time. Seriously, why can't I seem to work on things without a last-second deadline breathing down my neck?

Misread a topic as, "Ciel Highwind" which should've been Cid Highwind. That would be an interesting cosplay Ciel [Kuroshitsuji] + Cid Highwind [FF Series]

So... my next con I will be attending is at a golf resort... tempted to play golf in cosplay....

Just spent $20 on air force wings for my Sheryl cosply :c

It's like crazy difficult to find the standard 2 1/2" pins, almost everywhere just sells miniature hat pins. But I managed to find one. I also cracked and ordered blue contacts, I wasn't going to, but my eyes really aren't blue enough to be accurate.

Oh, and I ordered more eyeliner and like 17 pairs of false lashes for upcoming conventions. My wallet hurts ;_;

Now off to making my stewardess hat..bleh

Oxiclean??
OH derp. It has green on the sides, right? you could always have a tide-to-go- bleach stick/spray to wash the 'blood' off after you're done.

So you know how I didn't get a confirmation email from cosplay.com shopping from the clearance wigs? I had my mom call during school today and we found out that the one henna red one that I wanted apparently wasn't on clearance or something....so they're giving me a different one in the same color. Win.
And I'll have my wigs before the end of the week, hopefully?

No cosplay progress today. Had to go into college for a "welcome day" to meet my new tutor and tutor group. We're all third year students in it, so it's ok, and I ended up knowing four people in it.
When it was time to sign up for an enrichment course [basically mini courses [activities] in anything that last a couple of weeks and look good on your CV]. I did want to do the anime and manga one, but it clashed with my English course. I also wanted to take up Chinese and cooking, but alas couldn't.

I ended up taking Japanese [because I really need to get back into it] and a photoshopping course. Not so sure about the photoshop one, may drop that and do something else. But then again, I've always wanted to know how to use photoshop and what better to take a class in it? Might help with cosplay photography.

Finally after two years of not caring very well, I'm caring about wigs. Just finished my four day mission of brushing my Miku Hatsune wig. ; A ; Thank you, coscom, for providing advice to maintain a good Miku wig!

Started watching more Durarara!!. Gender-swapped Izaya cosplay soon? Thoughts from others please?

Gonna try making Matryoshka hairclips after I catch up in AP Art. Ugh...

Changing Saturday plans for ShadoCon to Magnet Hatsune/Rin/Zatsune, depending on wig avaliability. Advice on attaching the butterfly wings to regular headphones and being able to detach them after a con so I can use the headphones for regular music hearings?
