I can't fix my Yoko rifle myself. Have to send it back to my friend again. He'll be thrilled. "otz

At least it's not in pieces, like the first time. :'D

I'm hoping I can get Minako's naginata all spray painted today. I'm just annoyed the spray paint I got takes over 2 hours to dry. I'm way too impatient for this. XD

damn work, didn't get to do any work since pinning up the pattern, but I did buy a wonderfully ridiculously expensive rotary from gingher. I tried my sister's gingher and was impressed. My current rotary started to not feel good after a couple hours of use because it was designed with pizza cutter ergonomics.

Well a commision i got from ebay didn't work out so great so now i am trying to see if i can return it and exchange it for a wig. If i can i will have about 4 cosplay's i can do.

What was the problem? It was to tight and the quality of the fabric was definitely different than that of the one in the picture. So since i finally got me a sewing machine i will just have to make it myself (since no knows your body better than you do)=D

I'm not really made though, things happen so i am just looking at in a "Well i atleast learned something from in" way

In bold: That's typical for many "eBay" costumes, many sellers steal images from other sellers and thus use cheaper materials or miss out details and such. Also, no item bought of eBay is custom made or "commissioned" they take your measurements and match it to the nearest size of one of their existing pre-made costumes. Hence why it didn't fit properly. At least you have the determination to make it yourself, so you know what will be put into the cosplay!! Hopefully you can get your money back.

Yea i should have learned from all of the wig purchases i've made that they all have the same pictures (just different prices)=d Mentally i was going "i'm not so sure" but did it anyways (Silly Rabbit) Oooohhhh OK! See i wasn't sure what one would call ebay made costumes (i just figured it was commision, but never really looked into the definiton of that)*clicks on new tab for dictionary* Yea, after i bought it, i got my sewing machine for Christmas and was kinda like "crud, i guess i just take it since it looked legit" (hehehe, Naive aren't i) Most definitely!! i haven't sewn in 2 years, but i still remember how to operate things and now after this i would prefer to make my cosplay myself, this way i can't blame anyone but myself for my mistakes=D

Thank you for words of encouragement and clarificationX3 (Cause i had no clue what a commision meant)(*v*)''

That sounds like a nice scent; shame that they don't have it. D:


Wah, these black rhinestones aren't very sparkly. ;A; Depending on the lighting, you can hardly even tell they're there. OTL But they'll have to do, I guess. Hopefully the rest of the thousands of rhinestones will make up for a partial lack of sparkle.

Oh a commission is a cosplay made from scratch where both the seller and buyer work together to work out what they want the final product to be and such. Costumes from eBay are "store bought" cosplays.

I'm sure it'll all come back to you when you start sewing!

Your Watanuki looks great from the pictures I've seen! and the Pipe Fox was freakin' adorable. ^-^

P.S. I said this on facebook but The Doughnut wig really looked awesome. *Applauds*

That is awesome. I can't wait to see it finished. ^_^

Finished spray painting one side of the feather-looking thing in Minako's naginata. I just decided to go ahead and free paint it without making sections since it looks like the colors blend together in the ref images. I'm hoping it doesn't look like crap because of that.

Thank you so much! I really like the pipe fox too...although I might make a second one and add in more wire so it holds its shape more. I certainly have enough of that fur. XD

And the doughnut wig. GAH. I love the result...but the process... Haha. I still don't quite know how we got it to stay upright, but it stayed until about 10 PM, when the glue on one of the clips broke. We planned on reinforcing the clips with a stronger, metal-appropriate glue anyway, so it's no problem.

I'd love to see a picture of this... :O
And 10PM is pretty late, which means it stayed up for most of the day, which is pretty awesome.
