Sitting here, planning out cosplay expenses.....
I'm so afraid of how much cotton sateen I'm going to need, since I'm lining Nadeshiko's cloak with it....possibly. Unless I can find anything else that's cheaper, since it's nearly $10/yd and I still need to dye it.
But I found out that for all of the gold that's going to last me a really long time, I"ll probably only spend $25!

But really....I should be sitting here doing non-cosplay-related math, also known as precalculus.

But I need enough money for all of my fabric and wigs and stuff so that I can buy Hyrule Historia!

I'm sorry. I'm a whiny person that procrastinates and never gets anything done. I'll go now.

I'm working on re-styling the first wig that I ever styled (5+ years ago) and I'm pretty sure this thing is more hairspray than wig. Hopefully the second scrubbing will get it to a point of functionality. x_x

Naka-Kon was fun. It wasn't as good as last year but that was a hard one to beat as almost all the guests were on shows I liked. I did suggest Luci Christian for next year because I would love to meet her as Alois.

So...I was planning on making an ACTUAL invisibility cloak for my friend for her birthday next August.
Just now, I Googled it because I wasn't really sure what the pattern/fabric was.
Oh shit.
I love her and all, she was one of my first friends in high school, but.......no way am I doing all of that.

Plan for today: work out (at least 30 minutes), put the trim on the underskirt, finish attaching the lining at the back, hem the skirt, add hooks and eyes, print out patterns for hat and lapels. Next, I should probably order the hat supplies before the stars since they'll be cheaper and I don't have that much extra money right now. Blegh. Let's see how much of this I actually get done today.

OMG I am actually so happy right now =D I have somewhat successfully finished the skirt and now have the top to get right, but I am actually pretty happy with how the bottom came out. I also am probably a bit sleep deprived right now and have to go to my engineering class right now, but it is Ninja Grams day so whatever (hopefully there will be some pirate ninja action today in Engin. because it is a pretty big class =D)... all I want to do is continue listening to blame it on the cosplay and finish CC rawr!!

Also, Katsucon in only a few days!!!!
Next Con: Otakon
Dark Sakura from Fate/Stay Night (duct tape)
Setsu Heel (Kyoko Mogami) from Skip Beat

For the Future:
Akari Mizunashi from ARIA
Yuuko from xxxHolic (duct tape)
Erza Scarlet (Heaven's Wheel Armour) from Fairy Tail
D from Vampire Hunter D (very far future...)

After I finish with my Eridan cosplay, I'll be able to go back to and finish off the details for my Madoka cosplay so it will be complete! I only need the socks and soul gem...

I'm really excited to do this cosplay since I love Madoka as a character and the series itself. Madoka reminds me a lot of myself in some ways. I can't wait to get some better photos of this cosplay It's fun doing a girly cosplay aswell as all of the crossplays.

wow, haven't been here in what seems like forever. I don't have internet access at home anymore past my phone, so it seems like I'll be on CosCom a lot less frequently.

But at least I'm getting work done. http://celia-rose.tumblr.com/post/17...costume-update

My badges for Panty are so fabulous, lol.

I have been stagnating on my costumes for Momocon. I still need to make my Soldier's Jacket and get the patches on, spray paint his helmet and finish off his Equalizer.

My Animal Crossing boy isn't even close to done.

Turks, Ham and Cheese style~!

Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say 'Om Nom Nom' at will to old ladies.

Momocon 2014 Plans:


AWA 2013 plans:
Female Hannibal Chau-Pacific Rim
Lexaeus- Kingdom Hearts

I have the basics of the corset done! Now I just need to figure out if the sew-in cups will work or if I need to go buy one with more structure. It'll help when we get me properly laced up with it high enough up this time. I love my hubby, but you'd think he'd do a better job of getting me into something that's going to put the boobs on display. He complains so much when I hide them for crossplay...
Next Up: DragonCon 2015

2015 Plans: Ohayocon, MARcon, DragonCon

So apparently I accidentally shipped my trenchcoat for Tintin to my house instead of to my campus mail box. Whoops. The good news is that it arrived yesterday, which is lucky since I spent the weekend at home! The downside is I already had a lot of cosplay materials to cram into my small duffel bag and wasn't counting on dragging back a bulky trenchcoat too. Managed to make everything fit though, although my bag is admittedly quite heavy. :c

And the trenchcoat luckily fits! Although I might need to take it in a bit, since it does make my shoulders look obnoxiously wide like a male CLAMP character. xD It's perfect everywhere else, just a bit wide (and the sleeves are just a smidge long, but it's nothing major.)
