After 3 hours of work on Fury's tail armor, I have two pieces done ._. This may take a few more days than I was expecting...

Done with MegaCon, now onto the next cosplay! Since I can't order my fabric(s) yet I am starting on the prop since it seems pretty easy, just need to get some latex and bakeable clay so that I can do some scale tests for parts on it.

I need to drag my friends to JoAnns so I can started on their costumes for ConnectiCon. One friend doesn't seem to understand why I want to start sewing in March for a con in July... but she doesn't sew and I'm a slowish sewer.

Finished the stitching of the puffy sleeves and leotard for my Eternal Sailor Moon cosplay! Not as puffy as I'd hope for them to be, but they are slightly puffy. Only used an ordinary sleeve pattern which was slightly modified and it was my first time making sleeves



There is trim stitched around the bottom and underneath that the sleeves are ruffled.

Got my first test samples of stuff for this Wizard costume. So apparently it's demanding to be made. I just hope this curtain fabric stuff-a-ma-jig takes tea dye, otherwise I'm screwed @_@

A gal in my theatre class wants to interview me on the subject of cosplay. Oddly enough, she was the one who brought it up. I had taken my first prototype of Link's sword to class for use in a skit, a few of us were talking about it, and she asked if any of us cosplayed. It was very surreal, and it amazes me how cosplay has grown so dramatically over the last few years. Sooo I guess I'm going to represent the cosplay community for a day.... I wish I had some better stuff to show for it. My skills have increased tenfold over the two years I've been sewing, but I really don't have anythinig interesting or dramatic.

Oh hell, I'll just brag about you guys. XD

I finally got my Sam Flynn inspired shrug done! I just need to cut off all that string and sew that panel back on.~

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 ...)
