Tax return get! I just need to file my state tax return now. I only got a small federal tax return, but hey, money is money. And money is quite needed for cosplay.

And speaking of cosplay, I would love to know why it is so damn difficult to find a curly (or even just long(ish) and heat resistant so I can cute and style it myself if I have to) wig that's the right shade of pink for Pinkie Pie. They're all either light pink, a less saturated pink, or close to the color I want but too short. It's driving me absolutely insane.

I'm super excited because it looks like my sister will be able to cut my Fem!Kida wig for me!!! I showed it to her and was explaining how it's almost perfect...except I need to get the bangs cut and she asked to see a picture of how I needed them cut. When I showed her she said she could cut them for me no problem!! XD She cuts her own hair and other peoples hair so I feel confident that she won't butcher my wig! Yay! I can't wait until I have this cosplay complete!!!!

Have you looked at Arda's? I have no idea what shade of pink you're going for, but they've got quite a few.

Marked skirt over morning break. Started pinning lace over lunch. I forgot how huge Kaya's hem is, but this is the last row of lace I have planned to add, so I'm not complaining. (Besides, I kinda like handsewing ... *weird*)

Of course it's the zipper my mother bought for me that would be the broken one It didn't have a stop and I didn't realize it until I opened it and it just split in two. Who knows if they'll let me exchange it or not.

I actually forgot to check Arda, thank you! Their Luthien wig in raspberry might work out nicely if I add curls too it, but I wonder if the shade of pink will be too bright. It's hard to tell without seeing the color on the wig. :c Do you know if it's possible to ask them for a photo?

You can always try~ Most of what I've gotten from them has been standard, but they seem to be pretty approachable (and fairly quick with replies). You could always ask on Facebook or their forum ...
(Hope it does work for you. Not finding wigs in the right colour is such a pain ...)

My friend who is going to cosplay Dietrich from Trinity Blood is letting me practice being a jerk to her for when I'm Isaak. She's the only person in the world who would tell me "Good job!" When I call her a worm and threaten to kick her. ^-^

Nothing like hurting yourself the night before a con. 3 stitches in my wrist, which takes all the gloves and wristbands I was planning on wearing over the weekend out of the equation. I'm so glad that I mostly packed last night. /whine

Norway's hair clip is done. And my friend's Alois wig is washed and drying so it can be styled tomorrow.
I want next month to be here. I want Shutocon. Except I don't. There's still so much more to do.

I have thankfully located the music stand in the house without too much trouble. Tomorrow I have to put my wig head on it and take my Inukashi wig out of the bag to detangle it before the con on Saturday. So can't wait to go to a con. It seems so long since my last one!

I need to come up with a name for my "cosplay porn" tumblr... there are just so many breath taking costumes that need sharing (no, that's not the dirty kind of porn, it's the kind where people bring crazy complicated costumes to life)

also, I really want to work on 5 cosplays at once, but then I never get to the art studio (where the sewing machine is) for even one of them >.< why is that?

Just finished my Skyward Sword Zelda sash. My back is killing me. X.x Nothing quite like three hours worth of hunching over your sewing machine to make you feel alive. -w-
