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.....

It's my birthday! And my Nana said she'd buy me a wig for my birthday!

Now just to decide which one. Lin Xiao Li maybe?

Omni Con is this weekend and I have no vest yet.. augh.
And might I add that Riku's pants confuse me very much. {>.<}
I will be SO glad when all of this is over and I'm free to be Riku as I please.

I need muslin. Like, lots of it. Make that a couple bolts worth. Damn my need to do mock ups before cutting into the good stuff!

Happy birthday Quinn! ^_^

Instead of paying attention in my Roman Lit class I was planning out Ririchiyo. In my head she seems to be very simple surprisingly. 0_o. Something is going to go wrong when I make it. I just know it.

I think Lunatic is going to be the costume that finally makes me break down and buy a dress form. I've made stuff with lots of small weirdly shaped pieces before, but they never had to be even remotely form-fitting. -_-

Hooray! Craft foam test worked great, and now my supply drawer is way more organized. And upon realizing I have a fuckload of beads, embroidery floss, fancy buttons, trims and scrap cloth, I'm saving my fingers a bunch of pain and making my bf and I each a fancy cloth pouch for hanging off our Ranger belts, as opposed to two or more of just leather.

Why is it that everything that seems to plot against me doesn't hold the same grudge for my mom? I was starting to get frustrated because this sequin fabric didn't want to lay flat after I basted it to the satin even after ironing slightly. Mom walks over, takes the lapel pieces, a towel, and the iron and presses them. Now they look fantastic. Wtf, cosplay gods?! Send some of that my way, dammit!

Shot a short teaser video before the actual Photoshoot. When I took the thing off though, Fury fell down, go boom D: He broke only a few pieces, but I still have to replace one of the fury blades entirely. The other breaks I might be able to mend.

Anyways, here's a video of Fury in motion before his fall.
