So I was looking around online for twill fabric and I stumbled upon this At only a 1.99 a yard it looks too good to be true. 0_o Plus it says the white twill is White Poly Micro which makes me wonder if it's even possible for that to be dyed.

A cosplay just isn't complete until I cry over it at least once.

I was fabric painting black on white and of course I smudged it. Thankfully my mother helped me get the stain out as best we could. Now there is only a teeny tiny spot that no one will notice unless they're looking at me with a magnifying glass.

DISASTER AVERTED. Yay! And now that I've dealt with that issue everything is coming together really nicely.

Manganext is this Friday and I'm in the home stretch. Barring any disasters it should be finished Wednesday.

I'm so excited!

So many cosplays to do for Anime Expo this year, so little time. I know my friend will help me get them all done in time, but I still can't help but be nervous.

It's possible to dye polyester fabric - you just have to use the right dye. Also, an eHow on how to dye polyester.

...if poly does refer to polyester... I don't even know at this point.

;___; I'll probably have to drop another costume for Sakura-con. I don't want to though, but at this point I should probably do it just so I have time to finish my other costumes...

...school, why do you eat up so much of my life?

My two hour ironing foray, and then pleating irratation has me temporarily fed up with my train. Tomorrow is day light hours I'll work on it, but I don't even want to touch it tonight.

Therefore debating about spending the rest of evening planning ideas for the Single Pattern Contest, attempting to write a short fanfiction for the Animenorth contest or cover myself in feathers, and become the feathered serpent that flies across the sky in Mayan Mythos.

No, my trip the Maya Exhibit at the ROM had nothing to do with that, why do you ask?

Oh thanks! Although I did think of a better way as I have 2 yards of white twill fabric that is 100% cotton that I was going to use to make a dress out of, I can make the hakama out of that instead and then use the one from this seller for the dress. I'm just hoping 2 yards is enough to make the pants.

And I love the feeling when you realize you don't need to buy a certain fabric. I just remembered I have over 4 yards of pink duck canvas in the basement that I could use for Chizuru's sleeves. ^_^. That's one less thing to worry about.

Well the only reason I had it was because I severely overestimated the amount of fabric I would need and forgot it was 60" wide and I ended up getting around 5 yards for pretty much no reason. XD

Here's how it goes for me on coscom now:

I ask for help that actually makes sense and is not stupid
I get:
Snarky comments, and answers that are not useful

Someone else posts
They get:
Genius ideas and great answers.

So coscom, I am so close to leaving you. ._.
So. Damn. Close.

But anyways, I have begun helping my friend chose a cosplay because I cannot chose for myself. xD

I just came across a hilarious review. I'm searching for a Toto for my Dorothy costume and I see this on Spirit Halloween.



Someone mixed up Oz with Wonderland.
