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* ^_^

Ordered my Yuna earring using my ebay bucks~ I should order my necklace sometime soon too. My friend is gonna make me my staff, so yay.

I can also eventually use the staff for Black Mage Rikku too so might add that to my future cosplays. Probably can just make the skirt slightly longer to suit me. I like the large witch hat so that will probably help with me making it. lol

I bought the fabric I'm using for Stocking's skirt. I'm probably going to have to order the most accurate fabric for Panty I could find over Amazon. Does anyone else know where to buy green and red plaid fabric? I also got that shorts pattern I so desperately needed.

I've secured my lodgings for AX.

Time to start thinking about what cosplay I want to bring with me. At least, if I can get the time off from work to go.

Yay! Natsume's Book of Friend's cosplay~ I love the outfits for Fuzukigami and Houzukigami~

On a cosplay note: It's a 3-day weekend! Maybe I'll even have time to work on cosplay~ Homework has been eating all of my free time in the past week, but maybe I'll manage to stem the tide for a while and do fun things, like make my jet-pack. :'D
