woke up from a long nap that wasn't supposed to be a nap, and felt really restless.

What's the first thing I do? Head to my sewing machine. lol

I finished lining my gown, applied the interfacing, hemmed the neckline, and cut the pieces for the outer layer. Still a lot to do later today, but at least it's getting somewhere.

Now back to me. That wig, that one right there, is a wig my mother may buy me. Guys, the possibilites.
I see a ton of things you can do (just need to jumpstart my brain)XDD I think it'd look very cute on youX3

EDIT>>I got paid, only thing is i have to wait to do everything else first (school needs, insurance, bus pas, and list goes on) before i can go fabric shopping (or convince my dad, since my B-day is coming this month.hmmmmmmmXD)

Good thing I still have everything I need.

So it looks like I might be going to Japan Day in NYC this year because it's when I'm still in college and my friend who always goes wants to go despite the fact that finals start the next day for us. Now to debate whether I want to wear an old cosplay or debut Rolling Girl Gumi or one of my other ones early...

And I might have convinced my other non-cosplay, non-anime friend to come to a con. ^_^. Well to take pictures since she needs to build a portfolio but still! Progress! XD

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND A SIMPLE GREEN BUTTON UP.
WHY ARE THE SIMPLE THINGS ALWAYS SO MUCH HARDER TO FIND?!

Completely agree. X_X My question to find a simple no detail white dress has been in vain.

Yay!


I think my friends' cosplays stress me out than my own does. The friend that's cosplaying Chii just messaged me saying that she can't find her cheap Halloween long blonde wig for Chii and her Katja one won't work since it's three separate pieces. Although the con she's wearing it for is in May I'm all, "GAHHHH!" And I went online and found a bunch of cheap-ish long blonde wigs for her since I knew she was going to be low on money after buying Tifa's and Chii's outfit.

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!
