One lapel is done and it looks so much better than my first attempts. Now to make the other one (and remember to extend the neck just a tad) and add the button and ribbon at the back. If only I could find that horsehair braid I could have the hat 100% done, too. Blagh.

Honestly, this body salt thing from Sabon is amazing. It makes my skin so soft. *_*. This would be the perfect thing to use before cons for the more delicate characters heck, I could just use it in general before cons. It gives a nice scent and makes my skin soft. I wish I wasn't sharing it with my friends though. I don't know if there will be enough leftover by the time AnimeNorth and AnimeNext happen.

I <3 StarFest. The AnomalyCon peoples are getting comped weekend passes to run a steampunk room at the con. Which means brushing up my steampunk panels, but we only have 7-8 hours' worth of panels for the weekend. And they're totally OK with it. Which means sitting around drinking tea and cosplaying all weekend.

Just started measuring out the white fabric for my Starry Sky skirt.

First thing I did: rammed finger into a pin and started bleeding.

.-.

Clearly this is going well.

I really really want to take advantage of the Cosplay.com 20% off sale on long wigs right now, but with all hassle nearly every person who has ordered from them lately has gone through, I think I'll just skip it.

I also hope my backordered wigs from Arda will come soon. ~ I can't wait to see how they fit and what they feel like!

I just had someone on facebook tell me that my Zombie Aerith costume isn't cosplay because of its lack of accuracy and (I can only assume from their poor english) immaturity. Regardless of the fact that it is an original take on an existing character and relating circumstance, that it lacks all necessary elements to being true cosplay and is child's play.

While he and I got into a pretty heated argument through facebook messages and I got really angry... I am still stupidly hurt. I feel like crawling into a ball and crying! I get that not everyone shares my opinion or thinks my decisions are genius... but to be so rude? Cosplay is one of my creative outlets and I take a lot of pride and joy into my work

=(

Wow what a jelous ass you have there. Conventions would be no fun at all if every costume was the same. Tsch. Don't feel bad, you can make any version of Aerith you want; be even more cool if you got some more cosplayers to join you. XD

@Psycho: How rude! A prime example of a cosplay snot who takes the hobby way too seriously. Don't let his words get to you; there's nothing wrong with what you did! People make original costumes like that all the time. I don't know what his problem is.

--

I plan to take advantage of my fairly schedule-free weekend (gasp) to get some more work done. My goal is to finish my shoe bases, and/or if I'm feeling brave enough, I might start on round 2 of making my torso armor. /cringes I still haven't quite nailed down a plan for that yet though...

It looks great! Much better than my first cosplay from scratch. ^_^

Wow. What a jerk. Obviously this person is stupid and is one of those people that believe only the canon stuff is cosplay and that's dumb. Cosplay is about creativity too. Don't listen to a word that idiot says. Your zombie Aerith is awesome!

Finally going home for spring break today which means I can finally start working on cosplay. ^_^.
