New rule of thumb: always have a cosplayer buy peacebinding zip ties. Everybody else will choose the neon ones (for ease of everybody else finding them) but I was merciful and picked the forest green ones (for the sake of the cosplayers and photos).

Now to edit AnomalyCon's cosplay contest judging form. Again. >_*

In other news: I LOVE BUCKRAM! Omg, I think it's the best stuff ever right now! My opinion might change by this evening, though. But dear god it's the easiest stuff I've worked with so far.

Ug, so many choices for this year's projects. I scrapped my original idea until I get more experience so that means I'm back to square 1 for this year. *facepalm*

Getting all the stuff together for my group's Mario Bros costumes.

Yes, I finished Byakuya's scarf! Now I just need to iron it (so it looks prettier) another day and then it's ready for debut next month! Can't wait for Chibicon!

Oh, and I can also use that same scarf for Hajime Saitō from Hakuōki, yay for cosplay pieces that can be used for more than one character.

Had a bit of free time today so I started drafting out measurements on how I wanted the pre-made circle/skating skirt pattern to be - in terms of length and having to account for pleating!

My Hunger Games premiere cosplay is stressing me out. -_- I've been slowley piecing it together, and I'm started worrying it is going to turn out bad. I'm getting the suit I bought taken up, and I'll be picking that up tomorrow, so hopefully that goes well, because my wig didn't turn out the best, so I'm going to have to reorder one on advanced shipping and hope it arrives before the week is up. I still need to buy fake nails, and eyelashes, and find some way to add on the poofy sleeves. I don't even know if it's going to work out, and if it doesn't I'm going to end up costume-less! No time to look back! Did I mention I still need to find an undershirt? T_T

I just ordered my first wig from Arda. I've heard so many good things about them, I hope I'm pleased with the results!

P.S. once this gets here, Lin Xiao Li is done. I need to both thank my friend for getting me re-enthused about Black Cat, and also motivate her to get her Jenos Hazard cosplay together so that we may take awesome Chronos photos together.

Pinkie Pie wig, y u no here yet?!

And so much for express shipping; my rhinestones apparently just shipped yesterday and won't arrive at my house until Friday. Since when does 2 to 3 days mean just under a week? Honestly! At least I'll get them in time I guess, but it's still a bit frustrating.

I hope I can spare some time to bead/embroider my own drawstring pouch. Monday, Tuesday and Saturday next week are completely spoken for in terms of "You won't have ANY time to do things you want to do". And for that week, I have to work a graveyard shift AND help Mom renovate the upstairs hallway during the day (Oh hey sleep, I TOTALLY don't need you for the next six days....). Bare minimum I want to get the pieces cut out, the trim sewn on, and a start on the decoration. The rest i can just finish once I'm back at home, though handsewing will take a lot longer. But yeah. REALLY hoping I can spare four or five hours out of the week to get some work done on it.

Got back to school and my dressform and I think I've figured out my dart problem on Tatiana's shirt, fingers crossed, really worried this might mess up the sleeves. Hoping to try it on later and then sew up the seams and then cut off all the excess stuff I left "just in case" for the zipper, really put too much extra fabric in there. @_@

Bought a belt for Seras, along with some upholstery foam for her arm (it was 50% off today!). I also bought chicken wire for No Face's frame, as well as craft foam for the mask.

Hopefully my fangs come in the mail soon.

Lin Xiao Li's scarf is now stain free, so My chronos uniform is hanging in my closet. Now time to wait for my wig to arrive.
