Buttonholes are the devil. *nodnod*

Finished the last row of lace on Kaya's skirt last night. TWO YEARS of intermittent handsewing. This is so pathetic, but I'm just gonna plant my giant VICTORY flag over here and sigh happily.
... and go on to the next project. >_>;;

Ugh, so happy! Still waiting for my Luka wig and my Gumi wig was a little thin with my thick hair so I'm waiting on some wefts to thicken it up some. Today is mega cleaning day! I got the parts for my new bookshelf I'm going to use for wigs and current projects. Yay, Organization!

I seem to have this problem where I don't look at my reference pictures enough, and end up with some odd ideas about what it's supposed to look like. Currently, I just about tore the world apart trying to find striped fabric for the off-shoulder sleeves for my Ciel dress cosplay. Eventually I realized it wasn't going to happen, and bought a bunch of dye and fabric to do it myself. I just looked at a picture and realized that the sleeves themselves aren't striped - it's just the tiny bow in the middle. -_-

I had somehow convinced myself once that Trisha Elric had a floor length purple dress and no apron. Yeah, I had to hem like crazy and hand-sew an apron from scratch on that one. -_-

I'm also stuck in between paychecks and I am dying inside with the inabiliy to buy the very last but most important piece of my sis's Fem!Izaya cosplay: the damn jacket that costs a damn fortune. ;-;

Was starting to get a little bummed over only finding one Miku photo online, considering how much time and effort that went into putting on all those rhinestones. But one of my photographers has started uploading some of the Sakura photos from our shoot and they all look great, so now I feel loads better. :'D I'll have to get in touch with her so I can get the full size versions. Can't wait to see the photos from the other two photographers I had last weekend! c:

That's what I just found out.

That must be the reason this bodice refuses to fit. D:<

I've confused my poor friends on FB. I only have like 3 cosplay friends on FB. So I uploaded photos of my boots that I painted (the bottoms were brown but the rest of the boot was PERFECT) Now all my friends are WAILING that I ruined my boots LOL

Muggles lol

Just as I suspected though. The black along the bottom. Totally looks awesome! *squee*

Look here

They have to cure for 48 hours and then I'll do the other side. I'm really picky about paints I use

I AM DETERMINED TO DISPROVE THAT.

*still working on bodice*
THIS WILL WORK.
It will.
D:<

Slowly figuring out what's wrong with it. The neckline needs to be lower, and I'm in the process of fixing that and the two points which need to be more lateral than medial. Hah. Fancy anatomical terms fit in cosplay too. XD

Edit:
Okay fine. I concur. I am beyond frustrated with this costume right now, but IT WILL HAPPEN AND IT WILL HAPPEN ON TIME
just not now.
Food and Skyward Sword. I will allow myself to do this until 5 or so. >.>

Stupid ebay putting through an order when I purposely didn't hit "confirm payment"

Ugh. Whatever. If I get two wigs I'll have an emergency spare. Nbd.

I need to seriously sit down and make a proper budget... and pick a cosplay I actually want to do JUST for me and not for my friend's groups.

Ugh, finally being somewhere with internet should help expedite the search...

I got my new sewing machine... But it's not threading right.
So I'm terribly frustrated right now. I don't know how to fix it..
The manual isn't telling me anything helpful..sigh. I just wanna work on my cosplay! Lol.

Instead of working on my cosplay I'm playing Hakuouki....damnit >.> I'm so cosplaying Hijikata... Even if I will have to deal with a bunch of Okita's, he seems to be the most popular person to cosplay from the series at anyrate.

But I need to finish five other projects on my to do list. Or six...I need better pants for my Angel cosplay.
