Modules. Modules. Modules.

I have to work on one key module: Profile mode and install the locking mechanisms to allow my wings to enter static mode.

I just fold up the paper and stick it behind my badge in the little plastic holder for easy access. xD

Miniskirt Army has a cooler name, which is why we ended up siding with them. xD; Sounds better in a chant, anyway.

I usually end up using copious amounts of glue to hold things together. Certain bits of Haunted are held on by sculpted and smoothed mounds of Liquid Nails. They're definitely on there.
Yeah, I've had a similar issue with Fanime's schedule before too. I would keep forgetting/missing stuff. xD; I'll have to make a more organized list this week.

Nice. xD I love using super glue, except I always seem to get myself stuck to something which is rather unpleasant. >3>; Speaking of glue, I hope they let me take my rhinestone glue on the plane. It should be under three ounces, but I'll have to take a look before I pack it.


Gosh, I hate shipping right now. My Pinkie Pie wig only just shipped, which of course means it'll arrive while I'm not here next week. >:I On top of that, my leek still hasn't arrived, so I'll probably have to put rhinestones on my old leek just as a precaution in case the new one doesn't arrive in time. And for some reason, my Black Rock Shooter hoodie looks like it got sent in the opposite direction of where it needs to go, because according to tracking it's gone from San Francisco to Richmond, which is totally not on the way to Pleasanton. Bah.

But on the bright side, my panel's coming together rather nicely! I have a few surprises packed in for everyone. xD It's going to be so much fun, and 20% cooler than when I held it at last year's Fanime.

AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Guess who just ran the hell out of her craft thread for the drawstrings because she was too stupid to remember to double its length, and snipped off a bunch of now-unusable pieces?
FUCK. Now I have to make mine in a different colour, unless I get lucky enough to dig up another skein in black.

Going home today which means it's time to gather the supplies together to make my friend's Gatomon stuff and then fix the tarot cards and my evoker belt if I don't feel lazy. Oh and Saihate Gumi photoshoot this weekend!

Spray painted those findings copper, now I can add the deeper hue for more definition.

Also: working with a 4 metre long ruffle is...interesting. Even with using a gathering food it's still very shifty.

Also: fabric land is having a 50% off sale. A weekend after I had to buy more thread and trim. Of which I still need more trimming most likely. I gave up on budgeting this a long time ago......

Panel's pretty much ready! Now to sand down the paper clay on my Clow staff. I'll wait until I return from break to paint it.

Also, I hate airport security. I'm going to have to leave my rhinestone glue here because it's a 4 ounce container and not 3, so it would get confiscated. Now I'll have to buy more so I can finish my Miku skirt while I'm home. Boo.

Oh dammit. The headband I painted for Rose makes bubbles in the fabric whenever I stretch it to go on my head. At least it'll be under a hood, but still. >:C

Turns out I get to sit in on the craftsmanship judging at Colossalcon to see if any of the competitors are interested in joining Cosplay Testimonial. I think it's a pity my link thread to CT I posted here got deleted, but it did attract some people while it still existed, so that's a plus.

On the upside though, my dad said I can take one of my costumes with us on spring break and he'll do a photoshoot with me in Central park ^^

I just gotta decide which one though. I was hoping for Lin Xiao Li but clearly that's not going to happen. I'm thinking either Charden, Kaito, or White Owl. Or Wilhelm. Or Break. Or Labrador.

Gah I'm so Indecisive.

I don't use super glue a lot, surprisingly. o: I guess because I always try to glue bulky materials and I feel like a glue with more body would squoosh into the uneven surfaces and hold better. Or something like that.

Usually I use Goop. Last year I decided I really liked Liquid Nails.

Hooray for your panel material working out~
