Cut my wig. Rather lazily, but none of the bottom shows...but I should still fix the fact that the one side is a little longer than the other.....XDDD

Gonna get working on Princess Tutu's pendant now. Glue and stuff. And gold stuff. And resin...haven't worked with that in a while.

Two things I'm insanely Proud of and Wanted to show off:

First, I finished my Superbi Squalo Sword from Hitman Reborn since I'm cosplaying Squalo at a party next weekend. (If there's any Trinity Blood fans out there, yes, my shirt in that picture says "Team Dietrich Von Lohengrin")

And two: After two days of intense combing and pulling out a ball of knots roughly the size of my fist my long blonde wig has been brought back from the dead, going from a snarly mess to this. It hasn't been this soft since I wore it to AUSA.

arghsdghdfhg....

My attempt at fancy stitching did not go well. Started fine, and then the lace shifted, things were stitched to things they shouldn't and I had to rip out a foot of extreme tight interlocking stitches as well as the basting, undoing what I had just finished today. Not to mention there was a clump of thread so badly tangled in the lace, it's impossible to get out.

So I stormed down to the basement, grabbed the black paint and proceeded to paint the clump. So be it, you piece of garbage. *fumes*

Going to use a less fancy stitch next time.

Tsubasa Sakura is now state-side! US Customs, let go of my costume so I can try it on, please. :I
It would basically be able to make the tray for the rhinestones to sit. I feel like if you drilled holes of the correct size in the bottom of each dimple, you could then get each rhinestone to sit there by using some weak tape like Scotch Tape. And then you could apply it to your arm, and then by pulling the tape off the back the tray would hold the rhinestones to your arm and afterwards you could lower the tray.

In my head this works fantastically, but in real life practice, maybe not. xD;

Pictures of your new cosplay when it comes in? o:

This embroidery is coming along better than expected. I should have it done by tomorrow if I keep with up with my pace of 2 hours per day on it. Something bad is going to happen. I know it. >_>

I stopped by a Pep Boys to pick up some vinyl/fabric spray paint to test it out and see how it looks and applies. I did some test sprays on different materials to see how they work. Hoping they will look how I want and be really nice and crease-free when I bend them around! I think the red might actually even be close enough to the shade of red I was aiming for, so that's convenient. I won't know for sure though until after I see it in daylight, and I'll probably need to apply more coats. REALLY hoping this works out though because I didn't want to have to paint with a brush and have to deal with brush strokes showing up.

So so so you guys, I can't remember if Tsukiko from Starry Sky has a book bag or not. All the guys have their own backpacks, but Tsukiko is the only girl and I can't remember if she has anything or not. She is usually not the one I'm paying attention to anyway.

I don't know if I want to actually try and make another school bag in the same style as the Fairy Tail one I did, or if I just want to buy a suitable bag in a different style.

It's just me wandering around in the uniform, anyway. D:

I think she does. If I am remembering correctly she has the typical school bag.

Like this style?

Maybe I should speed watch Starry Sky tonight and see if I can spot it...

Sounds interesting. I suppose there's also if I were to use tape and arrange them in advance, keep it in a small box or something, apply glue to the back when I want to put them on, and peel off the tape. Basically the same thing without the Wonderflex because I'm cheap. xD

And maybe! I'm wearing it right now to try it on (it arrived today and I flipped out xD), but the lighting in my dorm isn't really great right now so it'd be hard to take a decent photo. Perhaps if I have time this weekend or something. xD; Goodness, it's so jingle-y with all these bells. And I really hope I don't trip and kill myself in this thing because this dress is LONG. xDD; Next I need to figure out what shoes I'm wearing with this (even though most of the time nobody will be able to see my feet anyway but OH WELL), then work out props. I need to get a white Mokona and make the ball/orb with her memory feather inside it like the one she holds in the artwork the dress is from. =3=

Haha...I forgot about Coscom after Sakura Con. Whoops. *sweatdrop* I was busy catching up with school work and stuff. Sakura Con was awesome though. I'm glad to have meet some of you guys there!~

But anyways, I gotta start preparing for HEXXP and the WCS prelim there. Then I have a lot coming up for Kawaii Kon to, like cosplaying from Hakuoki... >< I bought the game at Sakura Con. I have no regrets. lol

I was thinking about eliminating the use for the WF, but I wasn't sure how well the tape would come off the rhinestones/if the glue was strong enough for you to peel off the tape and not peel off the rhinestones too. Anyway. Lots to experiment with!

Can't wait to see what it looks like~

Haha, I would have been to but my friends and I ran into a problem of not bringing a laptop with us to Seattle... (My friend was going to but got a last minute virus and failed to tell one of the others in the group to bring theirs....) But er I dragged myself to the lobby to check coscom I think only on Friday?

Haha, well the purple guitar helped. XD lol I was like that had to be you...no one else would be carrying that thing lo...l I was worried with the others I thought I recognized from coscom but I wasn't completely sure so I didn't want to go up to them and ask and be totally wrong. >.>
