Ehhhh, I more got the idea after looking at a bunch of fanart. And then thinking "Hmmm,I could TOTALLY do a design, and I bet this wig would work already, and oooh, they make clip-in fiber optic lights for your hair that sparkle?".....

Rose's shoes are painted! Now to sew on the cape and iron on the symbol. I'm so close!

I'm fretting realizing I wasted a whole day away doing nothing but the interwebs. I have to figure out if I need new fabric for Wicked Lady or not because the anime is black with a red sheer to it but the manga is that deep Magenta/maroon color which is what I have. Stupid inconsistencies.
Also have to figured out how to make a scythe handle semi curved for Dead Master and Still have yet to get my materials for it since my friend I ws supposed to go with hours ago has yet to arrive. Goody.

I'm working on selling a bunch of stuff...Old manga and DVDs, and my My Little Pony collection, so I can have extra cash for this year since my job sucks and hasn't given me hours since January. I don't know if this cycle of crap at my job will continue, so I'm doing what i can now. Damn cosplay, u expensive.

Bother. I think I'm going to have to figure out the bra portion of Mjrn's dress again. It's just too bulky the way it is now... I think I'm going to have to take out the facing and ruffles, cut down the chest area, and start again.

I-CON is in 2 weeks. For the last month I've been asking my roommate to help me make my shoes for my costume. I'm dumb, I can't seem to do it myself. >__> Every time I ask her, she says sure. I just asked her like 10 minutes ago, she told me alright then a few minutes passed and she was like, "Well... Are you working tomorrow? We can do it tomorrow."

Don't promise me you'll help me if you don't intend too. Just freaking tell me you don't want to help.

Alrighty, arranged with the seller to return the first batch of rhinestones I bought with slower shipping so I can rush ship this batch instead. Yay! Better yet, I can return ship them for free. Double yay! Now if only rush shipping the damn things wasn't $20. Ah well, at least I'll have them in time I guess... xD;

Hat base is done! Can't do any more until I get some bias tape and felt, but it's looking promising so far. I'm just dreading messing with that sequin fabric again

So I started playing Tales of Graces and I LOVE it so far. *stares at Cheria and Pascal* Hmmm.... I guess I could pull off one of them at some point. But which one!? I should probably wait until I get to the part where Pascal appears before I decide.

Took a shower after work and felt like I had the energy to do something cosplay-related instead of hanging out in bed for the rest of the night. Like redye my fabric maybe!

Fiance made duck soup for dinner, and it was amazing. <3

And then I realized that I can't use the big cooking pot to boil water in for the dye bath because it is full of soup.

Redying will commence when all the soup is gone. o:

L.O.L. Y'know. You've got to love this hobby. I'm going through the thread and despite the fact we all have those moments lamenting failures and bad moments - without fail someone appears to cheer you on.

There is a vibe here that says "We're in this together! Through thick and thin fabric! Through cold water washes and burning hot irons! Though we might super glue ourselves to our projects, cut holes/gashes/oh-god-mom's-gonna-kill-me into the dining room table, we will stand strong together. Unless there is a 75% off sale at the Fabric store. Then you're on your own. And get the hell out of my way." <3

In other thoughts, instead of cutting out strips to introduce to my gathering foot I spend the last hour looking for patterns for Red Riding Hood, from OuaT. A costume I have no intention doing....at all....before Hallowe'en. Unless I win the Lotto tomorrow. Then I can quit my day job and live at Fabricland. Anyway, decided what cloak pattern and vest/bodice pattern would likely be best. Next; skirt and peasant blouse. Unless I can buy one cheaper. That might work....

Now that Lin Xiao Li is almost done, time to work on Lucille, Rufus, Isaak, and Peta from MAR.

I hope my family can go to NYCC for vacation this year so I can wear Lin out. ^_^
