After the hurdles I jumped through and the literal leap of faith and trial by fire I went through I'm almost done with the Loki helmet! My very first armor piece to build from scratch it's actually almost done. I'm really impressed. I never thought I'd ever get to this point.

It almost feels like a day was wasted having made no leeway or progress towards completing my costume. But I was at least able to have made some progress in terms of design.

I finally ordered most of the things I need for my cosplay so I feel a bit better now that it is just the waiting game with the mailman. I don't want to look at my bank account after this though hahaa.

Oh good lord, I had earlier thought I would not be going to Uppcon in Sweden this year (been the two earlier years) because the date is pretty bad for me and tickets are more expensive this year... and I have a con in Finland the weekend before. But now I'm planning to go there anyway because it kinda hurts not to go there because Uppcon has a special place in my heart because it was the first "proper" con I ever went to and the first con where I cosplayed and I have many awesome memories from the two years I've been there. Gah. Not to mention I noticed train tickets were kinda cheap... and maybe if I go to the train station in Luleĺ soon after my school finishes (yeah, last school day the day before the con, go figure) it might be possible to go to the con.

I've only been to one anime con (Ohayocon), but I didn't wear a single anime cosplay the whole three days. There were quite a few video game cosplays and a decent amount of sci-fi (mainly Doctor Who and Star Wars) too.

Whyyyyyyyyyy oh why did my Sakura staff have to break so close to Sakura Con?! And when I have a photoshoot planned! It's probably going to be impossible to commission a new one in time, and I'm not sure if I have the ability to make it myself; I can't make it during Spring Break, because I wouldn't be able to fly back north with it, and if I had my dad ship it back from me it might not arrive before Sakura Con.

Perhaps I can try doing a temporary fix with superglue and light pink duct tape and just cover the spot for photos, but I can't imagine that being particularly sturdy... Not that it was very sturdy for the past few months to begin with, but... OTL I'll have to talk to my friend and ask her to take a look at it before deciding what to do from here. I have a response to my Marketplace ad, but it can't be done before Sakura Con (though it would be in time for Fanime) so I need to think about that.

Aaaaaaaaaaargh whyyyyyyyyyyy OTL

I know I have black tricot interfacing. Why can't I find it now that I need it? >_> Oh well, was probably going to have to get more anyway, but still ... I wanted to bring the buttons to work today. Instead, more lace-sewing. Ugh, soooooooooo behind.

What's it made of? If it's wood (and thick enough around), you might be able to drill holes into both sides of the break and add a dowel inside to help hold the two sides together better than glue and tape would alone.

Hmmm, Shutocon... I still haven't decided if I want to pop over there for a day or not. It's about an hour and a half drive, so we wouldn't need a hotel, and I keep doing stupid Kotetsu-related stuff, which I suspect is because I *still* miss getting into some costume of his every day at Katsucon. And, y'know, monthly bills are all paid, and my next paycheck comes in on Thursday, so I've got a little road-tripping cash.

I'm debating whether I can alter simplicity's kimono pattern for Ririchiyo's top or not. I think it's possible, heck it probably is. And I can do it now since I have the kimono pattern part on me at college. And I rethought the whole slit thing on Rirhciyo's skirt and I think I'll put them in. I'm still afraid of making it though since this means I need to break up the skirt into two pieces which means more math to figure out. >_>

Today is my only day off this week.

There are three major things I need to work on: sewing the mockup for Erza's jacket, cutting and embroidering the patches, and redying the fabric.

I need to completely finish ONE of these things today, and preferably either finish or make some headway on at least one other thing as well.

Time to get off of coscom. .-.

I think the base is made of a dowel rod or two; it was in two pieces that connected. As for the drilling idea, the problem is I live in a dorm and don't exactly have any power tools (or know anyone who does besides by dad back in California.) x-x; I appreciate the suggestion, though; perhaps I'll ask some of my friends who aren't leaving the state if they could do something like that for me over Spring Break. xD;

I hope I don't have to undo ALL this stitching to get the puckers out. And I really don't want to try it again since I know I'll get the same result. Maybe I shouldn't have done it in one continuous stitch? Hmmmm.....
