...Holy crap. I've been looking around for an affordable pair of huge platform boots (7.5-8 inches tall) and thought I would never find anything that had a chunky heel, was actually at least 7 inches tall, and would be anything under $50 without shipping. Just when I was about to give up hope and was coming to terms with the fact that I would have to spend probably $70 on a pair, suddenly I found exactly what I wanted on clearance for $20, and they just happen to be only in my size. Um. Yes. This is a good day. I keep checking back to the listing to make sure I didn't read something wrong because wow, that is AWESOME.

Cosplay motivation, why you leave me!?

I'm almost done with Gakuko's overdress, I only have to attach on the snaps and the design on the back but I don't have the motivation to do it at all. >_<.

We're trying to make this wig. We have the base wig, we made foamcore hair donut things...and they're too heavy to stay up. I couldn't stub the wig because the donuts are too thin and I was afraid they would crack.

We've tried everything we can think of. The con is this weekend. D:

Your link isn't working D:


I'm looking into splitting a subscription to myglam or birchbox with my friend. Yay, more makeup to try for cosplay! Because really that's the only time I put on makeup, besides special occasions.
I'm also trying to find a good palette to use for cosplays to buy with my Sephora gift card.

The novel I wanted to cosplay a character from just completely validated my mental image of the character. ^^

For some reason, I always saw this character, Pearce as having a ponytail. I knew that didn't make much since because he was in the military (Albeit a psychotic totalitarian military, but still) but I couldn't shake the image of him having a ponytail, which was hard since I wanted to cosplay him. (Pearce is described as being very pretty. a psycho, but pretty. And I'm kinda the go to person for Pretty guys in my group.) But I wasn't sure whether I should give him a ponytail like I saw in my head or go with what made sense. Last night, I got my answer.

An actual excerpt from the book:
Pearce is leading the soldiers. His fair, wavy hair trailing behind him in the violent wind.

If he has enough hair for it to trail behind him, he can have a ponytail. WOOT!

Why is it that there is never fabric in the colors I need?

Even ebay has failed me. Woe is me.

It doesn't work as a link but I copied the URL address and pasted it in, and it worked fine. Having seen it, good luck! I always loved that picture and the outfits.

Good luck with the method Kell-chan.

OMG. I love JoAnns right now. They're having a sale on duck canvas and kona cotton, the two fabric types I need. How lucky is that? ^_^. The way this is going it looks like I might have all of my cosplays for the con season done by the end of break.

Time to get to work on my costumes for this year! I'll be working on transformation Stocking from PSG and Nightmare Moon from My Little Pony.

BTW:

I'm also selling my old Beatrice dress from Umineko on ebay!

Now I just gotta figure out how long of a ponytail I can give Pearce without feeling stupid. Ugh I like the idea of cosplaying from a book but it's harder than I originally thought!
