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.

Gatsby wax found~

Also, I'm learning a lot just in this one session styling my Rei wig. I learned how to cut bangs, how to style with hair wax, and how to tease up hair.

I feel so powerful. B)

So after thinking about it for a while I decided that I should probably hold off Gakuko for another year. *sigh* I think it would be awesome to work on her but I have to be realistic and it probably won't happen this year. Oh well. At least I'll have a bunch of smaller cosplays to work on and make them more awesomer(that's probably not even a word) than they would have been.

I'm stressing over my Ed cosplay. My con is on the 28th and I still need the belt and black jacket. I'm a little worried about not having a wig, although my hair is the right style (it's just dark blonde-- almost brunette rather than blonde, blonde.) :3 I hope I can finish the last few details ><

Gah! My friend who is letting me borrow her wig forgot it today.

I want Kohaku pictures now!

I just hope she remembers it tomorrow.

So, running behind on topic (this thread moves way too fast for me to keep up at school, haha), and continuing on the whole school thing.

I don't know how people manage cosplay, life, work, and school all at once. Maybe it's because I'm in a high unit major (agriculture), and have other responsibilities to contend with (horses, non-profit) as well as other hobbies (RP, DnD most recently, making aprons, reading, etc etc etc) that I love, but I find it nearly impossible to understand how such there can be cosplayers of such magnitude when they all work full time. XD Maybe I'm just bad at time management (I am)... Or maybe it has to do with the fact that I can't function without eight hours of sleep. XDDD Getting funding is a problem, too, now that I think about it.

It's mostly due to motivation, that I know for sure. I must find these videos you guys mentioned. Let's see if they do the trick!

Anyways, totally thinking about halloween. Probably not going to do anything special other than hang out and get sugar-rushed with my friends. Considering the work to finish Link or Malon. Malon would be done so much easier, so I'll probably be her for Halloween. That or a closet costume.

I really want to finish my Ooccoo prop. Love her so much it makes me sick. Should not love the booby-bird this much! XDD Just need to plan out her feathers and start cutting the craft foam, yesh.

Not sure what feel to feel, but it sounds like the outfits could be very cute. :]
