Damn, sometimes I hate to live in Finland, there is a total snowstorm going on here and basically all trains are delayed, and of course this had to be just exactly the day when I'm going to the town of a con I'm going by train to this weekend... Luckily the con is tomorrow, it could have been worse, it could have been the day of the con, I usually travel to the con town the same day as the con starts, but not this time~

Yes! Made some progress last night on my cosplay, I pinned four parts to the fabric and preparing to cut it. Unfortunately, on closer inspection, I had fubar'ed my rotary blade and need a new one which I will have to buy tomorrow. At least I'll get to pinning more.

I need to get the jacket out of the way ASAP because I'll need the remainder of the three to four months for development on my wing structs. The changes are almost minimal but I'm introducing a lot of new variables where I didn't have to worry about in the now photoshoot wing set.

As for why the character designers made them that colour, I'm not so sure. They could have easily been yellow or something that contrasts it a bit more.
I think they wanted to make them a color that would also match her magical girl outfit, so a color like yellow probably wouldn't have worked. Although I personally don't know why they didn't use red, which would've matched both the bow on her school uniform and the red in her magical girl outfit. /shrug

Cosplay related: I have a package waiting for me! I think it's more rhinestones. :'D Perfect timing too, since I need to work on my cosplay this weekend. c:

I wonder if I should go ahead and order my corset this weekend while I have the money and drive to start working on Arliquinn. I just hate dropping so much dough on one thing, but if it's worth it....then...well, it's worth it -headdesk-

I hate silk chiffon. I mean, I love how it feels and how it drapes and how soft and pretty it looks ... but it's such a pain to work with.

This message brought to you by the approximately four inches of hand-hemming I got done over my 15-minute break. >_<

That's true. Red probably would've worked better, but maybe it was supposed to "match" in being pink? I'm not sure, just blatantly speculating at this point.

In cosplay-related news, I left my paper mache out to dry all night and it's still not completely done. I'll let it sit for a few more hours, then it's time for even more layers before I spraypaint it.

Aaah, I'm kind of having wig doubts again :/ I really like my Madoka wig because it's such nice quality and just a really nice wig in general but it should probably be a lighter pink? So I'm considering getting a lighter one but that one might not be such good quality (this one is really good quality!) or might not suit me or something and auugh I don't wanna be wasting money but I'm not really sure if I'm happy with it :/

I worked on Bridget's top last night... one sleeve left oh and I need to do the ribbon bow part since it apparently got lost in my mom's closet.

Also, I've revised me plans for Ovan. I got confused by the concept art >.> lol hopefully it doesn't turn out to odd looking from the back with the pvc pipe being there for the Tri edge thing that comes out of his shoulder.

Well, it could also be that they wanted to make pink her signature color (outfit, Soul Gem color, etc) and thus went with pink ribbons, especially considering Kyoko's signature color would be red. But who knows?


Yay! My teal rhinestones from my mom are here. My black ones should be arriving soon too, plus a MLP calendar. xD Course, that last one's not cosplay related.

I have been considering cosplaying as Pinkie though, since I've recently taken up baking sweets in my (rare) spare time, starting with cupcakes (my first homemade ones for Christmas were chocolate with peppermint buttercream frosting; yum!) And I've also been doodling some ideas for pony cupcakes (ex. Apple strudel cupcake with caramel buttercream frosting for Applejack). I think it'd be fun to cosplay as her and bring said pony cupcakes to a gathering or something. xD

Gosh, make the cosplay ideas stop; I need to save my money for goodness sake!

So I just spent $200 on the Zelda 3DS.

Now I need to make more money so that I can still cosplay. I need wigs and fabric! It kinda sucks that most of the fabric that I need is.....just never sold at Joann Fabrics. Although I can still look. > gift cards and coupons....they're life savers.

Did a ton of stuff today. Went to Jo-Anns and got everything I needed to finally finish up Gakuko and Rin. And then I covered Minako's naginata blade in paper mache. Unfortunately it still isn't dry in some places so no spray painting it yet. And I finished all three skirts for mine and my friends' exorcist cosplays. The pleats look so much nicer this time too. *is very proud* ^_^
