An Intro to Memes 2.0 has been confirmed for Fanime, awww yeah!

Also, Miku is now at approximately 2,700 rhinestones. I ran out of black ones again though, so I had to order another couple of packs and have them sent to my house so I can work on that over Spring Break. Now I have to decide how I want to make the "lights" on her skirt with the rhinestones; do I want to go with all gold like in the Project Diva model? Or red and gold like in another MMD model? I'm leaning towards gold since it seems pretty standard.

And today I'm going to Michael's to get some stuff to repair my Sakura staff! Yay!

I kind of want to perform a skit in masquerade at Anime Expo now.
This is what happens when I'm on a Princess Tutu high at the same time as iDOLM@STER.
Ooh, maybe I'll make an iDOLM@STER costume as my fourth costume! That way my toes don't have to die for more than two days....

But I would hate to just...randomly dance. I need a story, and I need a way to nicely record audio. That's not that big of a problem, though, but a story....
Well, needless to say, I'm watching Princess Tutu while making my graphic organizer for anatomy tonight.

Currently trying to fix a curly wig of mine so that I can sell it. I've never dealt with trying to re-curl a wig before, if it goes successfully I'll put it in the market place. If It's become a shitty nappy mess of a mess then I'll just let it gather dust in my closet or just flat iron it all out. I've gotten the extension pony tail untangled but now the main faire needs to be fixed as well.
What blows my fucking mind? I let my friend wear it for only...3 hours at a convention. He returned it in the piece of shit stage it's in now. All of my rage. How could you do so much damage in three ever lovin' hours? What were you even doing?

Finally figured out why my first lapel turned out kinda wonky. I might redo it after making the hat just to see if I can get it closer to my second one in terms of flatness and whatnot. In the meantime, one more edge to slipstitch and both will be ready to go on the dress itself tomorrow. Then it's onto the "bustle button" and the hat and the tacking of the stars and this thing will be ready!

Bought some wig caps and hairpins, plus a wig stand. This is what happens when I don't cosplay for a few years; I have to re-buy all the things I lost.

Despite the fact I am well aware that Belle's yellow ballgown, in just that; it's not worn outside, I really want to make it, fly to B.C, and the UBC campus, find that path behind the Museum of Anthropology overlooking the ocean and the mountains and run up the hill singing:

"I want adventure in the great, wide somewhere!" o___O; Because it would only be epic in my mind.

On a more practical note. I made a strip of box pleats. They are not awful. Progress has been made.

I am SO nervous about sewing my own costumes that Ive had literal nightmares about it.
I have never sewn anything in my life, but I do have my grandmother who will teach me and help me out with the cosplay (even if she doesnt understand it xD lol)
But still. I have to start from scratch and I hope to have enough money to actually do this. Providing I dont have a job (yet) I only have about $400 to work with. Will I be able to make do with that? I hope so. It all depends if I screw up and have to start over... that would suck.

Melfina's mantle discs are nearly done! My model magic got a few cracks during the drying process, so I'm just gonna throw a layer of gesso on them tomorrow. Then when they're dry, I'll spray them sealed and one less thing to worry about! All I need is a tie... I also need to learn how to tie a tie. >.>

Tomorrow is my first convention and I'm skipping school for it. Three years ago I'd be stoked out of my mind, but right now I'd almost rather go to school. xD I'm just not into it as I used to be. I'm making my friend's cosplay, it's midnight, the con is tomorrow, and I'm still not done. AAH! Also, I need to learn how to sew sleeves. (Didn't have a pattern. Cut out the correct shape, just ended up sewing it on and hoping for the best. Meh.)
Perhaps it's because it's a smaller convention, but I'm just not that excited. I should be sewing right now, but I'm on cosplay.com. And I want to sleep. I realize that I'm rambling. Blaaah.

Hellsing patch and Rose shoes came in today. Slightly less nervous about my rapidly approaching deadline. I only have time to work on the weekends, though. D:

Whoa, be careful! Sleeves are trickier to sew than you might think! Western styled sleeves, anyways. If you're unsure, please look up tutorials on youtube (there are a TON), if not, you'll end up with some wonky sleeves! D:
