Working on repairing my Sakura staff. I have a bunch of leftover paper clay, so I decided to try and make a Clow Key to make into a necklace, since I've wanted one for a while. Seemed simple enough, right? HAHA, no. >:I

And then I just accidentally smashed and destroyed two hours' worth of frustration. Go me. /flips table

Working at a glacial pace. But getting things done.

Things go a lot faster when I don't have to interface with reality, but I suppose that's part of what makes cosplay interesting.

Ugh, I'm going to go through so many razors carving this stupid Scythe. Jesus this is a pain and the sound is hell.

Was inspired by an SS Zelda cosplay I saw at Hastume today. It told me "Reily, being a lazy procrastinator and just finish the damn dress." And I said, "Kay." So I continued with the stupid biasing today. It was more or less following the same line of the hem biasing so it was simple. Now I get into the frustrating parts with all the turns and the squares... *grumbles*

I need to gather up my courage and order my wig for John. I just...am so afraid of styling and cutting it when it arrives and I need to buy a wig head.

I was too the first time I cut a wig. Just take it slow and do it in sections. Put it on periodically while cutting to make sure it's the right length. Wig heads do help a lot, though. And if you do get a wig head, keep in mind they sometimes aren't the same size as your head, so don't base the cutting length on it alone.

Time to go back to college today with some of the stuff to make my friend's Gatomon parts. I think I'll try to get the patterns done at least this week after my two midterms. I'm already crying inside from all the hand-sewing I will have to do for this. >_<

Snaps are the devil. I've sewn them on wrong so many times. I should have just sucked it up and made button holes.

Hat frame is now felted. Gotta take a break before covering it with the satin. If I didn't get distracted so easily (or like today have the pain in my neck distract me), I could actually finish this thing tonight. Then that would just leave redoing the lapels. Blegh.

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*

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.
