I might actually be doing Ryoko in June, thanks be to the Maker for Arda and their fantastic sale.

I'm excited. I've been sneaking around Joann's when I go for demos, and looking through the spandex for Midna. I still have to figure out her hair... I don't really want to get a wig for it.

My last convention I won an cosplay award but it was definitely thru default, so I had an awkward 'oh well thats great, least I got the prize?' But it really damaged my confidence along with what someone shouted at me (i.e "You look like a crossplaying man!") so now I just don't want to cosplay as my gender nor do I think what I make looks 'good'.

I mean I still want to make my cosplays and I think they look okay but I've crossed out the cosplays of my own gender and am only making one that I know I can do. (Angel from Ao no Exorcist, making a coat is not that hard and collar though detailed isn't that hard >.>)

Sorry for the venting...
Ouch I am sad that you're going through this... don't let the words of one unthinking idiot get you down; you're lovely and you should play what YOU want. I poked through your photos and I don't see any problem with your costuming, either... we're all our own worst critic on that, perhaps? I hope you'll feel better after the term is done and you've had some time to sleep on it and realize that one (or even a few) rude comment(s) don't define you and you deserve to stand proud and shine in what you want to do.

Hmmm, I wonder if I could make a little hanging rack to hang a bunch of Xmas ornament balls to dry on after being painted. I used an old banana-hanger for drying one at a time, but I essentially have to throw my brushes out after I use them and they dry out (I'm just using cheap brushes, and a can of turpentine costs more than several packs of them). Which is still kind of a waste, compared to if I could get four or five done at once so I'd only use a max. of thre brushes for the colour.

...so what could one make it out of, from junk you can just find in the house?

Thank you guys. Hopefully after the term is done I will feel better or more confident or something. I don't know. I'll figure something out >.> but thank you.

Hello again, Coscom! I've crawled out of the rock I've been studying under.

Might not be getting any new wigs for Christmas since I need to ask for help with funds so I can study abroad in Japan next year. OTL Ah well, cosplay can wait. c:

I'm also considering cosplaying as Mami, even though I had already decided I probably can't pull her off very well. I love her so much but I really don't think I'd make a good blonde. xD

But on the bright side, I finally finished my final project for my art class! We had to do a remix/mashup, and it turned out we were also allowed to use original footage, so I blackmailed- er, recruited- some cosplay friends of mine to help me do a cosplay/anime mashup video. I wish it was better, but I can't help but kind of like the results. xD

I have no money!!!!


It's really driving me nuts that I can't work on any of my cosplays right now. Stupid holidays with their stupid presents. I can't wait for the end of the month when I can go on a supply shopping spree!

After being disappointed with the (non)lasting ability of an expensive primer, I bought another (cheaper) brand that had higher reviews. Make-up test today!

I'm not doing anything today but study, but I look good doing it. ;D

Sitting here with spiky hair, just to test if it was possible to do that style without a wig.
And from what I've seen... seems like it does! Just needs a few touches and it might be good.
