Just a note, he seems to like overdone makeup. My costume he filmed at NYAF was awful but he liked the eye makeup. I'm pretty sure that's what he liked about Anya, too. or atleast that's what he recognized me by/comment on xD
haha ok thanks! xD I also heard he really likes wings and big props, so each of my 3 cosplays are going to have big, easily noticable props. also 2 of the 3 i have to paint my skin pure white, which I'd consider "overdone makeup."

Thanks for the encouragement! To make it more recognizable I think I'm going to make Brief's headphones, and keep with the heart theme Panty and Stocking's angel outfits have. I was thinking of making a one shoulder dress, with a three tiered skirt, with green hearts on the hips and chest.

Yeah, I would consider that overdone XD

What are the costumes? (if you don't mind me asking.) They sound interesting c:

Opinions please!!

I am making a Maya Fey costume. I just about finished the over coat, but am unsure about the lining. I know I want to line it, but I can't seem to find a matching lining. Should I go a hair lighter or a hair darker? You can see my progress here: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3067393/

I'm doing a femme!Prussia in his "default" blue uniform & cap, with a giant flag and pole as a prop. The other two that require white skin is Teto Kasane in her Eager Love Revenge outfit, and my original Character Battery Bizarre, along with that giant prop she's got.

I'd say a hair lighter, with the pale colour underneath.

Finding myself wanting to do non-cosplay sewing -- well, not particularly cosplay, but still not quite normal clothing. This is a weird notion. I guess it's just costumes of a different type?

My wig from Arda is a little on the thin side, but it'll do until my wig from the Taobao batch arrives.

Also, I think this is the first instance where I've had to adjust a wig to the smallest point for it to fit. ._____.

I like costumes that are so easy and somewhat normal, that if u journey to a con via public transit, u don't get all the leers and jeers! xD All my costumes for the most part pass!

Murrrrr. I just want to seewwww. By the way, my mom's really annoying when she wants to attempt to use my serger. >.< And...learn how to sew. Except she doesn't want to look at the pattern directions. >.>
ANYWAY. I'm so mad. I'm having such a hard time finding a good color chiffon for my Halloween faerie costume.
And still no word about my wigs...;_;

Arda's wigs are almost always on the big side. It seems what you have to do is just bobby pin the hell out of them to keep them on your head. At least, that's what I do with the one I have!

Ugh. Do I ever wish I'd bought double-width bias tape. Because I have to sew TWO sides of each for a 60" long headband. Which means I need to sew the first 60", then the outside again, and of course the ends... it's taking FOREVER.

Can't wait to see it! It sounds so cute! xD Maybe a stupid question, but is your fem!Brief angel going to show her face or is she hiding it in angel form? o.o?

I noticed this too- it's actually one of the reasons my group really likes Arda - a few of us have big heads. :'D

So my Intro to Crossplaying panel (co-hosted by my awesome MtF bro) was approved for Yaoi Con. Thrilled as hell until I found out I literally have a midterm the day after. D:

So I may have to leave a little early. Still, it's been a while since my last proper con. I need a vacation, even if for a day and a half.
