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.

Ordered my shoes! My mom gave me the okay to order the ones I originally wanted! But I can't paint the sole the right color...oh well. Now i'm off to sew the headband and finish the tank top! ^_^

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

This Kimono pattern is complete rubbish! -- no wonder it was on sale for 2$. Doesn't work..nothing lines up..and the measurements are wack@!! AUGH!

What a waste of three hours of my life. I'm just going to draft my own pattern.

I can't wait for Halloween! Today my best friend said she's finally going to do Sailor Moon. She's a huge fan and has been wanting to do it for years. Also she's got a Tuxedo Mask to go with her. Me! Once my refund check gets here I'm going to finally be able to buy everything and get my Female Tuxedo Mask done! I'm excited to have someone to go with. It's going to be so much fun!

I know the feeling. I just need to wash a cami and paint a design on the front for Ohayocon at the end of the month. I just can't seem to get it done!

Yayayay! I now have really pretty colors of netting for two tutus! I have teal and white for a winter tutu and pink for my Princess Tutu tutu! And I have really really pretty appliques for my winter tutu! I'm so excited!
But I'm gonna go play Skyward Sword until I fall asleep now. XD

I hate that too! That was how Barnaby Brooks Jr. from Tiger and Bunny was for me. I thought about him, for me, all that was going to really break the bank was the jacket. Then there were problems with the necklace, and the boots, and the wig... buh.

I think my penguindrum hat is taunting me. It's been harder than I expected to get some of the materials and I'm starting to doubt you can actually really replicate the shape of it in real life. >.< Will work on it a bit more tomorrow but then I'll probably put it aside for a few days to work on something else, might be a good thing for me.....

I'm really sad they don't have a Waffle Cone scent. I lovelovelove the smell of fresh waffle cones and I've been wanting a fragrance of it since like, August 2010.

Still debating whether or not I should go to Katsucon this year. Last year was the first time I cosplayed at a con and I looked pretty terrible. Now I've lost a significant amount of weight and I've saved up enough to buy a decent looking costume.

The problem is I'm still in the process of losing weight. I'm 5'3" and right now I'm 124 - 125 lbs. I still have a bulge of fat in my stomach region that I'm trying to get rid of. So I'm kinda weary about spending a bunch of money on a costume, then losing more weight and the costume ends up being too big. This is actually what happpened with a bunch of new clothes that I bought since I started losing weight, all of them are now too big for me to wear, so I pretty much just wasted my money on them.

Katsucon is just around the corner and with the stores closing down for the Chinese New Year I'm running out of time to decide. Should I just buy the costume now? Would losing another inch or so in my waist line make that much of a difference? I want to go as Luppi from Bleach by the way.

It's been 2 weeks since I ordered my wig, and it still hasent gotten here! Which is weird, all the other times i've bought something from cosplaywig it's gotten to me in about a week. I'm slightly worried. Also, the chocobo plushie i ordered for my friends birthday isnt here, and i ordered that 3 weeks ago! Well, her birthday isn't untill march anyway..
