Therese's jacquard shipped! *squee!* (Seriously, you guys, I've been waiting for this stuff to come back into stock for several months. HUGE WEIGHT OFF.) Guess I better get to muslins. XD But I finished rough-sanding the sword base last night, which means tonight I'm gonna work on the hilt and pommel instead. Progress GET!

Got my contacts in the mail yesterday. CANNOT PUT THEM IN. Frustration level = HIGH.

Worse comes to worse, I have blue eyes, they're just not blue enough for my cosplay. And they tend to change colours-ish, so I'd rather have the contacts in. Oh well, I have two months to get the hang of it.

I had to cut it myself and I am bad with wigs.

See?

I only just noticed you replied to me too, oops, sorry!!
Ah, alright, I suppose I really shouldn't let it bother me!! Last time I measured myself I was 5'3/5'4 so yeah.... it doesn't really matter.

Aaaah that's so awesome, I'm starting to consider doing his green outfit too now because it really is awesome... oh dear.

So how hard is it to make a petticoat? For Camellia Gum I really want to make the whole thing but the petticoat scares me. >_<

Hard? Not very. Tedious? Yeah. Be prepared for lots of gathering. (Things I am seriously not looking forward to for Sisi down the line. 4+ layers of petticoats. Stupid pre-hoop Victorian fashions.)

Based on this tutorial it doesn't look that hard either and I thought this would break the bank too. Although now this means I have to learn how to gather fabric. >_<

And that sounds like it's going to be a lot of work. 0_0. Good luck with that!

MY WIG IS HERE. <3

Oh man, oh man, oh man. I'm excited. I still have to find someone to trim the bangs for me, but that's okay! 8D It's so pretty and long and pink. X3

Rather late to returning to the Arda discussion, but I suppose I'll just have to wait and see. Finding the perfect wig for Pinkie has been rather troublesome, so I hope this wig is good. xD;

Aaaand Miku's almost done!! I just have to finish the belt... thing, which I can't do until I get back to campus on Sunday since I left my hotfix rhinestone applicator there, and my new leek, which I don't have yet. Current rhinestone estimate is roughly 4,250. And in the meantime, here's a photo of the completed skirt; came out much nicer than I had expected, so I'm pretty happy!

My girlfriend and I also had to speed through putting rhinestones onto her Pimp Kaito; I certainly hope she regrets not listening to me when I warned her for months to stop procrastinating (never want to go through THAT again!), since that was quite the nightmare to get done so quickly. xD;

Gosh, after all of this I never want to see another damn rhinestone for the rest of my life. LOL

AWESOME. I spent a chunk of AnomalyCon sitting next to a cop because our venue didn't let us know how freaky their weapons policy was. And as a result, we received an official warning from the cop's boss. Nothing like turning away half the con's weapons because they look real from a distance (like, if a nerf gun was holstered and the handle was BROWN we had to deny people...)

Just spent $115 on Princess Tutu things. Not even done yet, I still need to get two pairs of pointe shoes.

Did I mention that my Princess Tutu wig came in? No? Yes? Oh well. I'm mentioning it again.
I got bored so I literally pinned feathers on and got that random tiara and pinned that on too.

Accurate cosplay sure is difficult.

Huh, just had to draft out a design for this jacket without a clear screenshot and I think I both got the design right and the size right for my jacket in one go. When did I get this good at drafting....

Need to get off my butt and check Fury for damage and blemishes, and fix them -.- Anime Boston is a little over a week away... If I don't get to it soon, it won't get done at all.

I need to fill in any cracks between the armor from the construction.
I need to either gently wipe away, or paint over any scuffs and dirt marks.
Patch over any creases
Repaint anywhere that got scraped bare to the foam (Fury thruster pack and blades mostly)
Finish mending the fury pack's thrusters.

Bah, it's supposed to rain for the convention this weekend. It's still early, so I'm hoping the storm passes sooner, or else I'm gonna be soggy.

Also, my plans to style Kurogane's wig today went like this:
1) Put wig on wig head
2) Pull up pics of other Kurogane cosplayers
3) Pull up reference pics from manga
4) Spend an hour rereading Tsubasa and get nothing done
