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
A-Kon 23!

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.

FFFFFFF, so my funds are totally cut in half cosplay wise. I won't be able to buy anything new for costumes for around a couple of months I'm guessing because my mom finally decided now I'm to contribute to housing payments. I have no problems with this, I just wish she hadn't dropped it on me NOW when I have a few credit payments to pay off.

This also probably means I won't be able to finish hachi-Hachi Len by original estimate of around March... Kimono stuff's expensive after all. Ah well, fun's in the journey right?
Working On:
Kamui (Fire Emblem: Fates) - 51%
Samemi - genderbent Samekichi (Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea) - 66%
Kagerou (Fire Emblem: Fates) - 77%
Foleo (Fire Emblem: Fates) - planning

Cat hair. Cat hair everywhere all over my stuff. Keep having to use those sticky rolls of paper on everything.

Cats have this weird desire to sit on things. If I place a piece of paper in the middle of an empty floor, they must park their butts on that exact spot. If I set fabric or pieces of a costume on the table, they will use it as a bed. Though if I cover all my stuff up with a blanket, they don't want to be there anymore. @_@

Currently working on Catherine skirt (oh god I've procrastinated so much...), overlocking all edges and adding in the darts. I hate sewing darts. :T
Fanime 2013 Lineup:
Minako Arisato (Persona 3 Portable)
Catherine (Catherine)
"Yuko" Narukami (Persona 4)

I have a tumblr too!

The plastic I ordered arrive, but it's much more opaque than I expected.

It'll definatly look better than tinted clear plastic, but I'm not sure if it'll actually look like goggles (plus they're only supposed to be worn on the forehead, but going to the effort of making an actual pair of goggles that can't be worn like normal ones feels like a waste).
Me on twitter.

To do; Dark Link (80%) Link (20%) Sheik (?)

Can't write, can't draw. Can code, a little.

Woot!~ I got a discount on my fur because the manager made a mistake. She cut my fabric and told me the price was $19.95 but then when I went to the cashier the price was $26.99. When I mentioned the manager told me the wrong price, she got a bit flustered and gave me the cheaper price. So yay....though I feel bad because I actually knew the price of the fur before the manager told me the cheaper price and was willing to pay for it at that price anyway... *sweatdrop*
