Instead of cutting out the missing pieces from one pattern set out of a new pattern set, I've been making it out of normal paper and cutting it using my cheaper rotary rather than risk screwing up my gingher rotary blade.

I was contemplating on just cutting corners in sewing my prototype jacket to get to the point of sewing the prototype, which is to alter it someway to allow for the wing harness. But since I do plan on wearing the prototype to a con (just because) I can't... I want to still though.

For a second there, I thought you were talking about the Fury from MGS3 (Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater) who also had a jet pack.... As a Metal Gear fan, I was excited only to have it dashed as I found out it wasn't the fury I was thinking...

Cause if so I might just hand sew Ririchiyo's scarf while I'm here at college(machine is at home) so I have something cosplay related to do. Of course I say this now but I have no idea how much free time I'll have once classes start.
In my experience brocade can fray, depending on how you sew it, so I'd wait until you have access to a machine.

How long does it usually take for a photographer to edit and send your pics after the shoot? I've waited two weeks for mine... DX

Oh that stinks. Guess I'll have to wait until I go home then. >_>

JoAnns current coupon has got me really excited. 20% off sale and clearance stuff? Perfect for me. I just need to wait till Friday before I can go. And my sock glue is waiting for me in the RA office. Just have to wait until 6 to pick it up.

Honestly it depends on how hard the stuff is to edit, sometimes it takes me a few days and once or twice I've done everything the day I've gotten home from a con. At this point I'd give them a friendly poke and ask if they had an idea when the images should be ready.

Ok thanks. He also said they should've been done last week so I think it's my email that messed it up... Will have to mail him again.

Sorry 'bout that =p If it makes up for it at all, this one's a giant T-rex which is in itself, a lazer, and at the same time, it's equipped with additional lazers =D

Apparently I now have someone willing to be my makeup artist at Dragon*Con if I can finish a Green Lantern bodysuit by then (cha right ). This is still awesome, though! I love my Facebook friends <3

Ok so... I got the pics of my Rei cosplay from the mini photoshoot me and my Saeko had at the con, and I look really derpy in most of them *sob*But it's understandable, I was tired as hell and I hadn't eaten properly, but it still bugs me :B Hopefully I'll get some other pics when I'm wearing it again~

I am debating on if I should buy completely new elf ears for Link. My shorter ears are fine, but I think the cosplay would look so much more awesome with the larger sized ones =/ It wouldn't be such a big issue if the place I ordered from~ wasn't so over priced XD;;;;;

Is there some dang trick to styling Jareths? Damn uncooperative spikes.

Also, anybody got any ideas on how I'm going to transport two heavily styled wigs, along with my suitcase? Starting to worry quite a bit about this to be honest, eek :I
