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...

Making your own cosplays kinda makes you cheap. I can't believe I'm being stingy over buying an Aperture science tank that only costs $20.

Sewing machine does not like my spandex. So I had to hand stitch the raw edges... Took forever! It stitched fairly okay, but the dog feed left a mark on it (thankfully on an area that won't show). I'm sure it'll be fine when I attach parts of the spandex to the leotard, so I sew having the lycra facing down on the feed = no marks! But areas where the spandex will not meet the lycra looks like it'll have to be handstitched. -sigh-

Also, going against commissioning the wig for Eternal Moon, going to take it like a man, er I mean woman, and do it myself, not from scratch of course, but as in get a base wig, etc. Need to learn how to style wigs properly some time.

Been ridiculous busy on this end for the past few weeks, and everyone here's probably forgotten that I used to post here ever, but...

YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS, I FINALLY FOUND HAUNTED's SPIKES AND WHAMMY BAR!!!

They have been missing since September. Finally found them in the box of CDs/DVDs I packed up when I had to move out of my apartment. Because I figured that I would baby the box of breakables and not smush the hell out of the spikes. And then I never unpacked the box when I moved back in. D:



In other news, I seriously need to get off my ass and start sewing something for Sakura-Con. Good grief. Purgatory Armor is no longer an option (because I don't know what I'm doing~), so now I'm trying to choose between Student Council President Erza, Robe of Remoteness Erza, and Default Yin/Izanami. Oh, I suppose I could wear OVA Yin if it's kind of warmish in April.

But now that I have Haunted's spikes and whammy bar, I can lug that beast around the con again if I fail to finish, you know, anything.

You know you've been away from the sewing machine too long when you forget how to hold the fabric while stitching xD At least the bodice lining is done (after a near-freakout once again when I thought I'd cut it wrong), so tomorrow I can get cracking on the organza underskirt. I wonder if I've got enough to do two layers instead of just one. Hmmmm.....this will require more bias tape.
