Thanks! There's admittedly a few spots where it's much less even, but you can't really tell unless you look really closely. xD;

Because of that I have to buy SO much cotton sateen and like 5 different colored dyes. Thank goodness I already have a burgundy color and a purple-ish black.
And that is why I'm so happy a CLAMP design hasn't yelled at me to make it yet. XD I'm just scared about dyeing in general, I've never done it before.

Ah, okay. CastlePoint is still a maybe for me since a Sunday means I have to drive the hour to get there and then the 2 hours to get back to college to make it to classes on Monday.

So somehow my sister is going to be coming with me and my friend to MangaNext. Which means we need to dig out the Kyun Vampire dress and make sure we fix up everything and have everything all set to go for her cosplay too. Yay for more stress for me! XD

My friend who is going to cosplay Cain from Trinity Blood is having too much fun using me as a butler when I'm Isaak. GREEEEAAAAT. -_- We don't have the costumes yet and she's already making me say "Yes my lord." XD It's pretty funny actually since that's Sebastian's line.

I've just never cosplayed anyone's butler before (She's usually the Butler) so I guess this is payback for all the times I abuse her as Ludwig when she's Wilhelm from Ludwig Kakumei.

Oh! I've done it twice. The first time I made it WAY too dark and abandoned the dress completely. The color was also like double starred or whatever, indicating that it's a harder to get color.
The second time, I had to dye over it literally......10+ times to get it the shade I wanted.
Hopefully this time, I'll be okay though. Nadeshiko involves not only regular dyeing, but gradient dyeing....

Well...I've gotten no further with cosplay, but hey, it's only Friday, I did some homework, and I got to play Skyward Sword for the first time in weeks! Pretty happy, man.

Ahaha, yes. Hakamas are expensive... I know... I love them IRL so I kinda collect hakamas. XD
But sometimes I end up making hakamas too for cosplays, especially if they are of some hard-to-find color or have patterns or something on them... or are some other style of hakamas, like sashinuki or something. I will probably need to make myself hakama for the next cosplay I'm planning to do, hooh excited~

And I woke up this morning to an extremely sore left leg, from getting down on my knee and saying "Yes my lord" to my Cain yesterday. Fantastic. -_-

On a happier note, IT'S KATSUCON!

So I am putting together a crossplay for Florina from Fire Emblem. Reference pic.

On Wednesday, I went to my friend's place and put gores into the skirt of the dress. I learned how I am supposed to hem and hemmed the skirt yesterday. I still need to shorten and hem the sleeves and sew in the collar.

Armor is a lot more iffy. I tried making shoulder pads out of paper mache and cardboard, but they are too circular (I wanted more elliptical) and they don't match. Here's what they look like right now.

For the hair, I can either drop $50+ on a wig, or get my hair professionally dyed for at least like $60. The process of bleaching and dyeing my hair would probably hurt it, and I have been growing it out forever, but having purple hair might be pretty awesome. This is what I look like (though I am suffering a bit from bedhead). Any thoughts?

Finally, I need to find a pair of ladies boots large enough for my feet. I am probably going to the mall today, so I will be able to look for them, and look at the wig shop.

ARGH, only two weeks until the con!
worry worry worry.
