Procrastination...
I have to finish these pajama pants for my sister for Xmas!
Oh wow...I've lost so much weight that a skirt I was going to wear to work today literally FELL OFF of me. Crud. I'm going to have to remake the bodysuit for my Teneko outfit and learn how to make a corset. Should I even BOTHER starting the corset while I'm still losing weight?? Should I bother starting any of my clothing? Oh, excuses...right now, my excuse is that I'm eating a really delicious spinach stir-fry with loads of garlic so I'm sitting at the computer. And posting instead of eating. I eat too fast anyway...slower eating is better for my weight loss.
By the time I finish sewing anything, it'll be too big for me or too small for my kid.
And MAN, ZiggyB's Gilgamesh costume is the [censored]. Still in awe...

-Tenebrae.

I'm also thinking that I really wanna start on some more costumes over break...
I ALWAYS HAVE THAT PROBLEM. The sewing machine at my house is out to get me, I swear..

also need to go fabric shopping for Maru and Moro and Yuuko for Christmas costumes tomorrow, need to coordinate with friends for that, and also need to straighten out which costumes (besides Shuichi) are actually being DONE for AnimeNEXT so I can get started on them..and I have an elf hat on that will be used for Maru and it's jingly.
There's also no way I'm finishing a jedi costume for my best friend so I think I'll have to give it to her for her birthday, 4 1/2 months sounds much more reasonable than a week.
I also haven't taken any Hermione pictures yet TT_TT

I've only seen upholstery thread in black and white...you might have to get white and Sharpie the visible parts red.
*dies lauging at HanyaanFaery's .sig*
It's truuuuue! I swear I'm always suggesting it when people ask, "What fabric should I use for...?" So versatile!

Finals suck ass!!!! Amongst other things they get in the way of cosplay. I've got a photo shoot this weekend, one and a half costumes to make, and exams aren't over until tomorrow afternoon.

It sucks that in trying to make myself look like a flamingly gay male manga character, I wind up looking prettier and more feminine than I do in everyday life. I can only imagine how I'll look once I have a curly blonde wig and MORE jewelry.

Also: ...Man, these pants are so tight I'm going to have to stuff to look plausible. ...What on earth does one stuff WITH? And am I going to have to look for pics of guys' crotches in tight pants to use as references? ;_; Cause darned if I've ever paid attention...

"There's a year-round costume shop only a 15-minute bus ride away from me, and I NEVER KNEW!?" That's it, I'm becoming a reg...even if it's owned by three snooby old theatre ladies lol.

I got my Lucca wig. ^_^ I was afraid it would be impossible to find now that Hallowe'en is over with. Now to find her glasses. I don't just want any glasses, oh no...I want these glasses to be perfect, so huge that they offend people with their enormity (is that a word?)

I've also decided on a reworked Red XIII costume for Anime North. Break out the body paint.
