Thanks. ^_^. And no I haven't. The con I'm wearing it for is in June so I thought I would wait until closer to then to iron it since it's going to be sitting in my closet for a couple of months.

On my way back to school!!! Yay/ wow I got nothing done on this break =_="... It is quite interesting to try packing about 10-15 rolls of duct tape and a whole bunch of tulle along with my sweaters =D Really want to get more work done on my CC cosplay, but now that I'm heading back that is looking bleaker =/ Also really hoping I can get stuff together and find a cheap place to stay so that I can come back down to the DC area for Katsucon...

Getting the same shoes I bought for my Hanon cosplay to use for my Eternal Moon cosplay. But looking at sellers feedback on eBay from other customers (thankfully no neutral or negative feedback regarding shoes).

So anyway, looking at the negative feedback (as this seller sells a lot of fancy dress and halloween stuff):

Some customers: Cheap costume, expect better, zip broken, etc, etc.
Me: (looks at price of costume) £11.99

Wut? What do you people expect with that price? A 100% silk, highly tailored costume?

------------------------------------

Anyway, bought my shoes! Commissioning accessories soon, just waiting on the commissioners replies regarding UK shipping. Then at the end of the month will finally get fabric (as unable to get it for xmas) so I can stop feeling left out and actually upload some progress!

Should get to work on my shoes! I'm making completely new shoes for the first time now (well, excluding the sole..) and it's a load of work! but it might turn out good for once.

And my new, not-yet-ordered wig might get in stock again tomorrow! I can't wait for it to get home. xD

After spending what seems like an eternity working on my Tudor gown, I actually look forward to something as "simple" as styling my Izumi Curtis wig. LOL

Oh my gosh, I found a site that sells body lotions and whatnot that smell like sweets. I can now end my search for a way to make my Chocolat cosplay smell like chocolate. ;u;

But oh man, looking at the pictures makes me hungry. xD;

Groupon, I love you. I just got a wig+wig cap, and various Ben Nye makeup thingies for $28. My Cosmo cosplay is officially a GO, and the Ben Nye makeup will provide a neat and tidy way to get dirty and bloody for steampunk.

NUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! I'm so sad right now. My next costume is going to be another one of Chii's (Chobits) dresses, and I was so excited, because I just happen to have enough left over material from 2 other costumes, to make this one. All I had to do was go buy some bias tape, and that was it!

Then, I busted out my material, sat down, made the skirt, and it some how ended up being about 2-3 inches too short ... and my butt shows T_______T HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?! I've made probably 1587304975 skirts, and I NEVER DO THIS. Now, not only am I having to wait to work on this costume (because I also noticed that when I was cutting out the skirt, I made a big slit through some material that wasn't suppose to be cut), but now I have to go out and buy more material. I'm pretty much broke atm, so that'll be a while. Plus, in my sulking, I was sitting down thinking if this was even the way I wanted to make this costume, and ended up coming up with a much easier way of making the costume (though sadly still more complicated than I had originally thought it to be), but it's gonna require more material than originally planned, which means even more money ... that I don't have DX

I really hate when omgcheapandeasy costumes turn into somewhatexpensiveandnotsoeasy costumes T__________T
