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.....

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.

Happy birthday, Quinn! -throws confetti at you...with a cannon-

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.
