So.... I decided to spend my 3 free hrs attempting to work on my CC ball gown cosplay in the lounge.... the skirt looks like I am somehow wearing a large garbage bag. I'm not sure if this is going to end up looking ok or not =/ I may put a picture of the semi-finished product later tonight and I would really appreciate it if you guys gave me an honest opinion... pretty please *winning smile* Me working on it taken by my awesome friend: http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...450 819_n.jpg

I'm getting too excited about this wig I'm getting off the marketplace for Haruka. I'm already thinking of what props to go along with it, like a music score of Maji Love 1000%. I'm not doing this cosplay until next year. Shhh brain.

I wondered how in the world I was so broke this month - as it turns out, my cable/internet company completely screwed up my automatic ebiling and took $250 too much. What.

I cancelled the auto-pay to prevent this from ever happening again, but I'm pretty sure I'm not getting that money back into my bank account.

I was kind of pissed at first, but hey, with that credit on my account...no cable bills for two months. This means I can get to work on my next cosplay after all!

/trying to be optimistic

I've decided I'm never gonna use the freezer to do cosplay work EVER again, 1 pack of exentions fell down the back of it and I can't reach it D: luckly, I had enough extension to do what I needed to do, just waiting for the weft to dry *need to move it off the floor*

Oh I also would really appericate it mother nature if over the weekend you would stop bringing us gale force winds from Sibera as I need to dye my wig, Thankies :3

I will send them comparison pictures once they reply to my previous email... I'm just really panicking because the convention is at the end of the month and I don't know what to do D:

Went to Joanne's tonight and bought new fabric for Rose's hood. I looks so much better than the last fabric, which was too light in color. And I got it half off! Yay for coupons.

Hand made a ball and socket Joint for Berserk Fury's neck so I can actually turn the head side to side and up and down. I used a few spare scraps of PVC piping of 2 different sizes, cut a hole, and presto! Next I just have to run some wire/string from four points on the fury's head, and attach them to a cross-shaped piece near me for controls, and I'll be good to go. Gotta love ingenuity ^.^

Tomorrow, I've got only a few things to cross off my list to get ready for the next step, so I'll pick up a big tub of light spackle, and a couple more pieces for the head rig, then I'll be set for a while. =D Most progress for the next couple of weeks won't be the most noticeable work, but it'll be the necessary refinements needed before getting too far along.

Also found a few videos showing simple locomotion devices. Those should help with future endeavors into more complex mechanical work.

Alright. So for English, we're doing Shakespeare skits, and I'm Rosalind.
It's a scene where she's crossplaying. I don't have guys' clothes. I was so excited, too.

I'm thinking tomorrow night I will possibly use some red brocade to make a really long vest kinda like the one she wears in this video of our scene, finding an off-white collared shirt from my stepdad so that it's deliberately huge on me, wearing brown leggings and brown boots.
But a wig....the only short wigs I have are Sakura and Aelita, and I obviously can't use Aelita. I'm wondering if I should use Sakura, or just go with my own hair?
