I miss sewing sequins. It was fun. Until I started rushing, but still.
Thanks! I entered in Schala- http://www.cosplay.com/costume/354423/ and my bf in Prophet Magus (also got that one in my list). We were amazed that we won so big, too; we actually had to change our skit around twenty minutes before we went on when we found out we could only use one exit on the stage.

Ooh, excellent, another JRock fan. : D Usually no one had any idea what my costume lists mean.

I made Toshiya's Myaku outfit once before, but it was before I learned how to sew properly (or had a sewing machine) and so it doesn't fit right and the seams are all wonky. I want to do it again properly, so I can pair it with this~

Also, eventually I want to remake that bass so it functions. o:

OH MY GOD THAT BASS YES. I don't think I have ever seen anyone cosplay with that one before. Or if I have, maybe once, in a photo from a long time ago. Dude. Yes.

Dangit, where were you when I was still cosplaying J-rock?!

THAT BASS IT TALLER THAN ME. And it's currently stashed away in my closet. o: Here is the WIP album, if you were interested in the process. I made a lot of mistakes in the process, it was my first prop.

Not many results popped up when I was doing reference research for it. o: The only other one I found was made of plywood or something. I think I may have been the first to make it with 3D ridges and life-sized, with a real neck and bridge and tuning pegs and strings and whammy bar and everything.

I was on the other side of the US, also doing JRock cosplay, apparently. o:

That's really awesome. You did a great job on it! Especially for your first prop. Thanks for linking the in-progress photos. I would love to see your remade costume with it when it's done! Hopefully you will post photos.

Trying to style a wig for the first time ever (not including the frightening frankenstein-esque of my first Fran wig) for Syaosran from Tsubasa Chornicals. I'm using the wig I overdyed for Link, since it's a sort of reddish/brown/blonde color Syaosran seems to switch between. Thankfully it was pre-cut to have layers. It's... interesting. I like doing it, but I'm afraid that it looks like crum, or at least nothing like that character. Bah, I need to grow some more self-confidence.

Funny thing is is that Syaosran isn't anywhere on my cosplay list, yet there is one particular cover art that won my heart last year when a friend loaned me the manga. It's stuck with me ever since, and now that I can sew better, it's something I wouldn't mind making. And I've got the wig, so why not? But it all depends if I get any money for my birthday, or I find a heart-wrenching amount of white fabric at a REALLY good deal (I'll probably need 8 to 10 yards, haha).

My shoulder pads are horrible, my breastplate, although not a noticeably messed up, still is far from where I want it to be.
Over spring break, I just might steal a 3D printer...

Thanks. <3

And I will totally post pictures. But I work super slowly, so it'll be quite a while. .-.

Ohhh first year cons. I didn't compete in the costume contest because I brought my lazy steampunk stuff, but now I'm sort of wishing that I'd entered my navigator outfit. Because there were only 15 competitors...

Kurogane is officially full steam ahead. Took me long enough to get started.

And somehow my group decided that because we didn't have anything appropriate for the San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival parade, we'd make new cosplays.

What.

We're meeting up next weekend to pull our plans together. XD

Damn you,m Lady Antebellum! Why must you inspire me at 6AM to do a skit that'll be totally fluffy and sappy and full of sad win when I've still got three other costumes to finish?! (Seriously, I really want to do this skit now xD)

Grats!

On a different note, I hope I never have to use the vogue pattern to sew another freaking jacket... it's incredibly time consuming cutting the pieces and even more doing the pockets. The pockets were like massive speed bumps.

But now that I'm nearing completion having cheated and cut corners by doing my best to avoid hand sewing and positioning the sewing machine in ways to use it, I'll be on schedule! Next up, reconstructed my wings, I need to get more bolt removable hinges, at least another pair or two.

Sebastian Michaelis! So expensive....
