It's still a major pain in the ass to sew this way, but I only have like three days to finish everything. xD;

If there's a backstitch button on the machine, was it left on? Occasionally I do that. o:

Yeah, I'm kinda wondering about that too. Maybe if it's a switch you can jiggle it on and off? It might've gotten stuck...?

Ugh. I have a paper due in two days and I'm only halfway done or so. But I haven't worked on anything for Tutu lately so after I finish the SAT 2 math 2 diagnostic test I think I'll iron some or cut the rest of the row and pleat a little.

I took the 1st volume of Grand Guignol Orchestra with me to re-read it on vacation.

Now all my enthusiasm to cosplay Lucille is coming back. The minute I get back from my trip, I'm gonna start adding the designs to the cover of his songbook. I'm also trying to remember what stores I've seen white coats at. I think there was one at JCpenny that I could get and modify...

Muahahaaha~ I love it when things work out like this XD My friend has a Miku wig that she said she'll give to me because she only needed it once and she likes Luka better anyway. So yay free wig for me, though its a bit blueish then I really care for.

But man I'm all existed about getting my pattern and my fabric!~ Lol I'm actually going to be cleaning my area today to make room for working on those cosplays. XD

So much for me worrying about space in my suitcase for Anime North. I have LOADS of room. YAY!

Looks like silk dupioni may be in my future for this new costume. I'm terrified at using it because it's so expensive @_@

Finally started packing for AnimeNorth...kinda! I just took out all of the cosplay stuff from my upstairs storage thing and put them in the suitcase, not really packed yet, just in there. I am so glad I decided to go with the big one. It looks like there will be enough room to fit all of the cosplay stuff as well as regular clothes and a wig head along with other odds and ends.

Final figuring out what someone meant in a tutorial and doing it yourself = awesome.

Being inspired to work on cosplay = fantastic!

Realizing that every store in town that carries what you need is closed until tomorrow = T____T

Thinking of getting someone more professional to alter the collar of my cosplay's (Tatsumi Saiga) trench coat....I'm completely at a loss on how to make it larger to match the character's. That's pretty much all that needs to be done and it's complete.

Well finally received the fabric for Riku's vest... and hey, I got a nice surprise of the blue and yellow trim that goes on his vest! I had purchased some..um..ribbon? That lining stuff that you can glue on..um yes, I think so lol. Oi, I'm wondering if this pattern will work.. I hope so! I got enough fabric to make mistakes with, so I'm happy bout that. I might need to get a different needle since the fabric is pleather and it's quite thicker..don't want the needle breaking!

Yay!~ I won L'Arc-en-ciel tickets! lol That has nothing to do with cosplay but it makes me happy.

But in other news...trying to get some money to buy my bf's wigs and fabric since he wants me to make him Wang from Tekkin. Also gonna order some Miku plush leeks for the Miku dance party at HEXXP. lol

Totally understandable. Last time I checked, that stuff went for $40 a metre at my fabric store. But it's such a ridiculously beautiful material. I used a material that was very simliar to it, on a train and the body it had was perfect.

By the powers of Moofinghamshire, I bestow upon you the luck of a 75% off sale! Make it so, universe! My comrade needs dupioni!

Now that I'm basically done Cinderpunk (still have to do that dress rehersal to finalize...) my hands are itching to do some designing. I have Costume Con ideas to work out, for 2014 but I really want to do something more immediate. Maybe I will try an actual cosplay this time?

So instead of being productive and study for my 5 upcoming and insane finals this week, procrastination decided to come and bite my ass. Now I'm doing a wig and make up test for Gwen, Mami and Juvia. OTL

Well, at least everything's looking good so far..
