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.

SO COOL. xD; I shared it with my friends, they think you're one of the most amazing people ever.

I'm sorry that it broke though - at least there's time to repair it before the convention!

Yeah. I'm just ultra lucky that it was just one of the Fury blade's, and the jetpack white wing things. If it were something like the head, I think I might have just cried. I mean, there's some dents and dings I have to flatten out, and a piece of armor I have to re-attach (with a washer now because it popped through it's screw) but I'm pretty lucky despite the fall. It was a good controlled fall...

Fury's inherent Bad-ass-ness has allowed it to survive things that other cosplays obviously wouldn't have! >:U

Definitely - better the blades than the head. T-T I would have joined you in crying at that point... you could call the dents and dings 'battle scars'. Though that might just be a cop out.

Exactly! >:U

Alrighty. Since I've heard such good things about them, and there's a sale, I'm going to order my first wig from Arda. Lin Xiao Li, here I come!

Well, just turned my first lapel right side out. It's.....different. I'm a bit concerned. Maybe I need to trim the seam allowance to get everything to be not so bulky. Eh. That'll happen tomorrow.

I think my Alice wig is here. I got a parcel pickup notice today. It would be nice as the estimated delivery wasn't until the 20th, if that's what it is I can wear it to Kawa.

I'm sitting here regretting the fact that I never had a chance to design or make Katniss's fire dress/interview dress.

Also, I want to design Rue's interview dress....

Wow I'm going to get nothing done tonight.

So I'm going to Japan Day in NYC in May and I really want to cosplay for it. XD I was thinking about bringing Rolling Girl Gumi but then I realized walking around the city with a beaten up look is probably not the best idea so I will be making Mozaik Role Gumi for it instead. Which means a trip to Jo-Anns is in order! XD

To make matters even better I even convinced the friend I'm going with to cosplay with me! Although she is going to be cosplaying a Gatomon gijinka! And I'm going to be making her paws, tail and ears. ^_^.

*stares at Gatomon's paws* How the heck am I going to make that without a sewing machine here at college!?

Hooray! I get to make fancy drawstring pouches to use up some of my beading/trim scrap and leftover bits of fabric.

Carving spray foam is so much fun~ <3 And I mean that with sincerity, despite having the stuff all over now. One wrist down, one more to go! Then to fix the shoulders~ I love progress~

Had an insane moment where I realized I have everything I need to make Alibaba from Magi with me right now, so tempted to somehow make it happen before con. o.o;

Alice is pretty much done. I just need to add the blood splatter. I got a parcel notice today and I think it's my wig. So, I think I'll be wearing this to Kawa. I don't have any props though. I'm making the hobby horse for a school project but it will be a little while before I do that.
