I'd gonna go cry in a corner but I need to finish Angel and Cloud still...

Oh no!!! That would make me CRY and CRY!! I'm sure you still will look amazing

I was talking with my friend tonight and was complaining about not knowing what to do with my wheel chair now that I'm doing better. And she goes 'DUDE! At Anime Crossroads you should be Rufus Shinra from Advent children!! When he's all robed in white and in the chair' LOL so I have an idea for one of my costumes later this year

Oh fuuuu. I think this dark green dye...was too dark green. And I only dyed it for 20 minutes instead of an hour.

And it better scrub off my tub or there goes my deposit. >.>

Try baking soda and vinegar (get the apple cider vinegar if you can't deal with the smell of the other) that's how I get dye from when I dye my fibers out of the tub

I just straight up bleached my tub and scrubbed it with the rough side of a sponge after my last two fabric dyeing sessions. All the red dye was off and away with very minimal amounts of effort.

I just read over here about using denture cleaner to clean dye out of a tub as well. o:

Hopefully...I'm just gonna hide behind my chibi-Sephiroth if anyone says anything. T_T I will probably make the coat later when I have time T_T

But now on to finishing the details for my Angel coat!~ It's almost done just gotta...attach more buttons T_T Why do double breasted coats have to have so many buttons? But back to the coat!~

Thank you! :'D I'm looking forward to seeing you and all the other Coscommers attending the Lunch Meet Up too! I'll probably be Sakura that day though, so I guess we'll have to arrange to hang out on Saturday so you can witness the fabulousness. xD </kicked>

I have three packages waiting for me back on campus... One of them must be my girlfriend's Kaito stuff that we had to ship up north, because I don't know why I'd be expecting three packages otherwise. xD What sucks though is the Area Desk is going to be closed the Sunday I'll be going back to campus with my roommate, so I'll have to wait until the next day to get them... Boo. One of those is probably my leek, too. So much for having that done on Sunday. >:I

I will probably be Erza on Friday at the Lunch Meet, although at the rate things are going, I might have to default to Starry Sky for the majority of con. No motivation for anything this close to con~

Somehow I have an enormous 4 hour long gap in my schedule of things I want to see on Saturday afternoon. o: Unheard of! We should totally meet up again on Saturday so I can see your all of your fabuloustasticness in person. : D I really really want to bring Haunted to the M10M autograph signing, so I'll probably be dressed to match.

Yay! c: I'm still working out my con schedule. xD; I need to make that organized list of panels I'd like to attend and get in touch with a couple of photographers to arrange photoshoot times and whatnot. But surely we can arrange something! <3

I think my allergies are kicking in...

This is unacceptable. I have to make my friend's Jenos gloves this weekend! I did not just spend $50 on clay to get beaten by the sniffles! I...

...am going to bed and hope I feel better in the morning. This gloves are being made this weekend either way!

I have an odd question if you guys could help me? Was talking with a friend tonight and she asked if I was going to get contacts to make my eye's bluer. I was a bit taken aback because my eyes are pretty damn blue. So I thought I'd ask for other opinions?

Close up of my eye (just because I think eyes are cool)

Sorry if this is a weird place to ask, but it's what is on my mind now lol

Contacts or no contacts?

So here's what's going on with my group's panel this Saturday:

Me (texting Bro): The con listed our Intro to Crossplaying Panel as "Intro to Cosplaying."
Bro: Whaaa..?
Me: The description doesn't mention anything about crossplaying either.
Bro: Can we correct it?
Me: They already went to print.
Bro: ...should we make a general cosplaying panel?
Me: It was their mistake. We shouldn't be responsible for changing our whole programming. Unless...do you want to make a general cosplay panel?
Bro: Maybe...
Me: ...Let's make a cosplay panel.

At least I know my impulsiveness is genetic.

Maybe make it a general cosplay panel but go into crossplaying somewhat? You can probably cover a brief but informative intro into crossplaying within a short time.
