This is kinda random, but I just found out that the con I'm planning on going to is later than I expected- which means I'll have my braces off by then, meaning I can keep my mouth open for pictures of my cosplay! Yay!

I am envious of all you people receiving packages right now. My boyfriend walked in with two packages and neither of them were for me. D:
Indeed, even the simple things can serve to be a real pain in the ass. xD;

Aw. D: I hate when that happens to me at home. Somehow it's always when I'm expecting mail; I see a package in front of the door and get all excited only to find that it's not for me. xD;

Yay, both the polo AND the sweater for Tintin arrived! The polo will need to be washed though, since there's some weird ink stain on the inside. I'm kinda bummed though, the polo is way smaller than expected. It looks like it's still wearable; and it seems like it'd fit for the most part (haven't been able to try it all on together yet) but it's kind of... short. Like it'll fit everywhere but it's too short to cover my stomach. Upon closer re-inspection of the ebay ad, it seems as though the shirt's in boys' sizes and not mens'. Herp derp! I'll have to try it on and see how it works out; it'll be hidden under a sweater anyway.

And speaking of the sweater, holy eff it's huge for something that's supposed to be a size small! I think I can make it work, though. After all that effort to find a sweater the right style and color, I will make it work.

Managed to actually Get Things Done last night! Granted, it was just pulling all the boning out of my new corset, stitching the bottom edge, and making and machine-sewing the bias binding for that edge, but I'll take it. Means I have handsewing for work again -- and I managed to find both the last of Kaya's lace and some leftover velveteen that should work for Therese's belt while hunting for sateen scraps, so bonus!

Next up, buy some new plasti-dipt and cut down the boning to the length it actually should be before tipping everything.

Trying to decide if the pants on one of my comissions are simply creased along the back of each leg or pleated--my instinct says because the costume is based on a military dress uniform, they're more likely to be pleated but ugh, pleats are a hassle in pants.

Think I need to rewatch a few more episodes to get a better idea of what I'm looking at.

Yesterday I bought some lycra for my next cosplay. Some... pink lycra. Very nice pink lycra. I have the patterns too (drawn by myself... yikes.), so I just need to cut the fabric and go to my aunt's place to sew - she has a seamer and I like to sew lycra with a seamer.

I also made a duct-tape dummy for making the armor. Can't wait to get some foam plastic... I like - no, I LOVE - making things out of foam plastic and burning my fingers with hot glue.

*ho-hoho*

OMG! So surprised to see someone mention Medabots~
I hope you'll make it one day!

Hmm. I'm going to Sweden with my GF and BFF in the beginning of next week. I was planning to take a relatively normal looking cosplay with me to photoshoot, but.. Somehow I ended up with Rayflo from Vassalord.. Having a drawn goatee, drawn abs, and my shirt open during winter(Of course I'll wear a coat when not taking photos) probably isn't seen as normal by other people. orz

Muahaha, I've been converting people to be Vassalord fans on my end, too.
Just too awesome! ;D
I don't feel quite manly enough to cosplay Rayflo, so maybe I'll do Rayfell with major bra stuffing one day.^^

I read somewhere that they used peacock feathers.

Post pics if you do, I personally have wracked my brain trying to figure out how they attached them so they wouldn't fall off with so...ahem...little holding them in place.

I should never have watched Stargate earlier. Now I'm planning an Anubis costume. So much chicken wire, crinkle taffeta, and crepon sheer do I see in my future xD
