I'm concerned that with only 40+ days left, I won't be able to finish Falken. I have to redo the wing structs and sew the entire costume...

I'm determined to finish this armor and to do it with minimal hand-sewing. >.>

Is your cat a maine coon? <3

I...just ran out of pins, and I have nothing left to sew down on the other tutu since I haven't been working on it.
Uhh...
I guess I have to go upstairs and get that white thread out...

But I think I just pleated half of row 5. I think I'm going to add a row to this, since I think 13" is a little too small for my liking. I'm thinking 14 or 15"...

Hmm. Thinking. Maybe I'll make my top layer some pretty (and soft) glimmer tulle? I have a TON so I'm sure it'll be enough...>

I really wish my friends would decide if we're going to Otakon... I want to make something new if we are!

My Vanille wig came in! So did another product I ordered (for school use; unrelated to cosplay)! But I guess no one answered, since it's in "retention". I bet my father was too lazy to get up from in front of the TV... <__< I suppose I should have let him know it was on the way, but I wasn't expecting the post office to deliver until tomorrow.

Made a list/poster of things I want to do this summer to motivate me to pass chemistry.

That's cosplay related because the thing in the middle of the poster is "Finish Creed cosplay"

To get Ovan wig or not to get Ovan wig, that is the question? Sorry, weird mood but its what I've been debating all day about. I should get it since I'll need it in a few months and it be weird if I just got one wig (taobao order) but I wanted to email the wig seller with more then one wig on it and I can't afford Hijikata just yet. Hm...decisions.... maybe I should get the Lightning wig as motivation....

I'm seriously debating whether to bring the wig I'm going to use as a base for the female player character from Pokemon Black and White 2 to AnimeNorth in case I find wefts or hair buns in the dealers room to buy to match it...

I'm feeling kinda nervous about AWA. Not the actual con part, just the fact that my dad (who has never been to a con before) is going to take me and I have no clue how he'll react. I wanna hang with some new people and all that, but I'm not sure... I wish my mom could take me, because she's taken me to all my previous cons and knows exactly how it is. :S

She's a Siamese mix. She only looks big like a Maine Coon because she's a bit fat. Oh well. I love my squishy kitty. <3

And I'm done with the black vinyl and on to the red! Somehow this makes me happy. Small victories and all that. XD

I'm really excited to go to A-Kon for my second year in a row, but this will be my first time attempting cosplay photography and I'm pretty nervous about that. I'm an outgoing and talkative person once you get to know me, however I rarely am the type to just go up and start talking to someone (or, in this case, asking for a picture). So, I'm hoping being in my environment will loosen me up ^-^

Alsooo, this is also my first time ordering a commission and I just want it to come in as scheduled haha

Aaaaugh, dammit, Pinkie! While sewing on the white part of the skirt like my friend instructed, the way it ended up would cause a seam right in the front if we leave it that way, which neither of us want. But the stitches were tiny because we forgot to change the setting after attaching the ruffles, making them damn near impossible to seam rip. So now we have to figure something out. OTL Shouldn't be too bad to fix it, but dammit I don't have time to keep dealing with stuff going wrong. ;A;

I also have to make a trip to a small shop down the street; I need a new feather for Sakura (the one that arrived was too small among other issues) as well as gel inserts for my heels for Pinkie because those things are a living hell to walk in, let alone stand in for so much as ten minutes. @A@;;; But I was just able to order some dark pink flats to use while walking around con, so I can just wear the heels for shoots, and those should arrive JUST in time which is a relief.

So much to do, so little time. OTL

I hate waiting for things to dry. But at least my apartment is getting clean in the meantime. The next few days are going to be long, so I guess I'll be setting my alarm extra early to set the glue to cure while I'm at work.

Oh shit, I still need to reinforce the legband. Gah, so much to doooo.

I think I'll salvage the hinges from my old wing structure since I already took the screws off before to pitch it an additional 8 degrees before hand. I fear that moving it an additional 10-12 degrees will compromise the structure even further. If it was for a local convention, I wouldn't mind since my workshop would be available for immediate repairs but this upcoming con isn't.

Construction of the wings shouldn't take more than one day since I already have the lengths planned. I anticipate that I won't have any personal photoshoots, so the ability to lock the joints isn't necessary.

I hope to knock out the entire costume by the end of this month as I don't anticipate I'll have much time available in the coming month.
