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?

I love aha moments! I started growing my hair out, which meant that I'd have to cut it if I ever wanted to cosplay the 11th Doctor again. But no! Hakkai's wig just needs de-poofing and it's already the exact style.

Ahh, I can't think of anything off the top of my head right now, but I'll definitely PM some suggestions. I ran karaoke at Kuroneko-Con in 2010, so hopefully I can help come up with some good ideas, lol.

I started playing Ace Attorney: Investigations again. I really want to cosplay as Kay.

Brain, finish oiran Sheryl and Catherine first. "otz

I'll keep an eye out for it then! xD This panel is also being held in the karaoke room at Sakura-con, so I'm getting some help from the karaoke coordinator too~

It should be a lot of fun! And if you have any suggestions or ideas for a running a karaoke panel/karaoke in general from your experience, please let me know! I'd love to hear any advice you have to give.

I'm tempted to start trying to do the Shipu Shipu Dansen before I open my mailbox... my wigs should be arriving any day now. o.o

Augh. Headdesking. Got over half the stuff for my SS Zelda cosplay. And the stuff I don't have I know where to get. All except one. I just can't seem to find the right leathery looking sash belt thingy. My frustration is over 9000. *headdesk headdesk headdesk*

Augh.

So now I have to juggle my group's NYCC costumes with costuming Cabaret up at school.

Crumbs.

At least I got patterns for the NYCC costumes. The right patterns this time.

So while trying to cheap out on a laptop stand for my DJ gear, the gears in my mind spun and the solution to my wing design dilemma came out. I was standing around eating fruits for dinner while waiting for my train and it. just. happened. I couldn't wait to get home and jot it down before I forget. Amazed that this hasn't come to mind.

Got Berserk Fury's head puppet'd finally. I can now make him nod, bite, shake his head, all the fun stuff! His lower jaw is held closed by rubber bands, and pulling on a string opens the mouth. The head is operated by two strings 4 inches apart at the crown of the head. One left, one right. The head naturally goes down, so pulling back brings the head up, right string brings the head right, left string brings the head left. So simple, but so nice to have finally set up ^^
