Currently convincing my friend to cosplay Yuffie along with my other friend who is cosplaying Tifa. Uh...why am I doing this? *personally doesn't care too much about FF 7* Oh well. She had no idea of what to be for AnimeNext this year. I'm helping her. XD

One final down, one to go!

Cosplay continues to be an excellent motivator.

That and, you know, not failing.

I'm in a slump right now so I understand >.> though it just may be the stress of the end of the term effecting me.

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...

Cosplay what you want. Haters gonna hate.
You're beautiful. I know it's hard, but try to not let it get to you.

So today I finally decided that I wanted to cosplay Fi after all and I gotta admit half the reason I changed my mind is so I wouldn't have to buy another wig. XD
I have to admit, the first time I saw her design I was a bit put off...But it's such a pretty costume/awesome character so I couldn't resist XD On the other hand there's Girahem that a friend of mine wants to do...

What's a lace front wig? One with no bangs at the front? that's the only thing I can think of

One with no bangs in the front, and there's a thin piece of mesh that has hair hand-tied to it to give a realistic hairline.
One of my jobs here at school was detangling lace fronts and sorting them by color. They're evil, but look absolutely utterly fantastic.

UH OH GUYS

I'm loving the costume possibilities of Skyward Sword. There haven't been many good new designs in a while in that series.

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.

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?
