I just cut and hemmed a part of my secret cosplay, and it looks so nice. It feels good to have something turn out so awesome; I'd been getting really discouraged about cosplay as of late. Afraid I wouldn't be able to sew anything, or that I just wouldn't look good, etc.
(Now I just need to convince myself that I'll actually look decent in this secret cosplay, and we're good.)

In more exciting news, my boyfriend booked the room for Otakon, so it's something that's actually happening, which is so exciting! I'm composing a list of impressive cosplay to make to take with me to Baltimore this summer. x]

Grumble grumble...
Just discovered a massive flaw line in my fabric, that runs across... Oh, three of the five panels of my skirt. Don't have enough fabric to cut new ones, not to mention I only noticed after all the darts were sewn in. I suppose the only advantage is they more or less line up with one another....on the flat ironing board. No idea what it will look like once it's on an actual person.

I guess I now have to research Victorian trimmings....at knee length. *sigh*

THIS. THIS SO MUCH.

Took me FOREVER to find a simple blue sweater for Tintin, and then that turned out to be a mistake on the seller's part and they canceled the transaction. Finally found another one, but holy crap, what a pain.

Didn't get very far on my cosplay, thought I'd be stitching up most of the leotard, but realise that I would need to stitch in the sleeves first, so I spent a few hours drafting out the pattern and creating mock-ups. Can't do much from there, need to buy the trim, so hopefully the sleeves will be finished by the end of tomorrow, then I can successfully stitch up the leotard..

Puffy sleeve mock-ups are looking good!

Less than two weeks till Katsu, and I'm still debating... should I go full-out drag for swimsuit!Kotetsu and pack? Normally I don't, because when I'm crossplaying, I'm probably not wearing anything tight - or if I am, there are enough aspects to the costume that people probably aren't paying attention to the lack of a bulge. But this costume is super-tight and fairly simple, and I think it would be a nice touch... but I don't want to freak anyone out.

Already I'm planning on sports-taping myself to avoid cleavage (which is hard for me to get in costumes where I *want* cleavage - and now it shows up in a costume where I don't?), and experimenting with beard prosthetics instead of drawing the darned thing on repeatedly... also possibly not shaving my legs. XD I'm not doing any female cosplays that weekend anyway.

I was just thinking How I haven't been Kohaku in a while and then I did a photoshoot with him. Tonight I'm thinking "Geez, it's been forever since I've been Prince Ludwig..."

Does this mean it's time to break Lui out again? Must find my Hooker boots again now XD

Dress progress~ http://celia-rose.tumblr.com/post/17...tarted-working

I'm really tired, both of this project and from being up working on it until 5:30 because I couldn't sleep. But, damn, I'm proud of myself for how well my dress is turning out.

^^^ Looks gorgeous! :'D


Currently dying to go thrift store/fabric shopping to find shoes for Tintin and get fabric/supplies for Chococat. It'll most likely be the weekend after next, which is frustrating me because I feel like I'm running out of time before Sakura Con. OTL

Working on some belts atm. I am thinking I might have to start over though~ and rather than hand sewing, pull out a sewing machine. But that would mean asking for help...again >>;; God do I hate asking for help on cosplay u-u~

LOVELY communication with our fearless leader. I thought I was going to GalaxyFest for a day. Nooope. For the entire weekend. And the con's 3 hours away, so I sort of need to get a hotel room. :-/

Got my dress cut out and sewed together in basic form the other day. Still need to shorten/hem the sleeves/skirt, maybe add gores to the skirt, maybe take in the waist.

I am making another attempt at shoulder armor today. A couple days ago, I tried just thermoforming some craft foam last time, and that didn't get a great result. This time I am throwing paper mache on the foam from last time, and it is sort of working.

I haven't even started thinking about the boots yet...
