And at least one Mako and Bolin were pretty cute too. ouo

I feel like planning on using my grandmother's fantastically old and beautiful Singer for sewing practice and actual cosplay making when I visit her over the summer.

Seriously guy, it's one of those antique and sturdy Singers made from the early 20th century. It's so gorgeous. OuO

I feel...so broke...so so broke...and I don't even have my paycheck this month! T_T All of it is going to cable and rent. T_T crap man...

Darn you Shuu and my impulsiveness! This month I think I might be able to afford Shigure's and Laguna's fabric, but that's probably for the best. >.> I need to finish those first after all. Next month I'll have enough money to start working on Ovan and Clouds wing/AIDA frame, along with Saber's hoopskirt and white dress...

Ah cosplay on a tight budget... I hate you. Seriously, I had to sell 90 of my manga's to pay for shipping from the taobao order...I think I'll need to go sell all the video games I don't need next (everything but Hakuouki, FF8, P3P, and FF13), then I'll have enough money for Shigure's fabric.

Heh! I was just thinking about the time I was told I'm getting a little too involved in the idea of cosplaying...well, I find it a bit exciting in away something different...

Also, I've always loved workng with my hands for instance building random props for no reason other than to see if I could make them (I did sell the Benihime sword I made for a good price though). Now I can make a prop with with a purpose. Handmade costumes are beyond my skills in sewing( if I need somehting made I'll find someone reputable to make it) but I like costumes that look gritty and down to earth...and farily easy to do (like the movie style Gambit or Tatsumi Saiga that I'md doing for example, regular clothes with some alterations).

I guess it would seem weird to the people I know. I'm the only anime fan in my little group...which is getting smaler but that's another story.

Just found the pics from Costume Con 30 that was last month. Great Godddess of Sergers and Bias Tape, those people...those people....! @__@ <3

That's it. Operation MOAR Dakka is in full effect. I require a thunderstorm, a 0.5mm pencil, and FFVI's Dancing Mad on max repeat.

In the words of a woman much smarter than I: Take Chances, Make Mistakes and Get Messy!

RAWR!

That Tenzin. THAT TENZIN.

So brilliant. Makes me wish I was a tall, slender, bald dude.

There's a Goddess of Sergers and Bias Tape?!
That would explain why the two never work for me.

Teehee. Tiaras. They're sparkly.... :3
Working with millinery wire is a little more difficult than I imagined, but oh well.

Darnnit! The photoshoot I got invited to is at Puu Ualakaa State Wayside so I can't bus/walk it and will need to count on someone to give me a ride to get there and back to civilization. I hate having to do that. My friend lives in the area...kinda. Maybe her parents can give us a ride? (Times I wish I knew how to drive...) But since it's so far away, I can't be at my parents beck and call...cause I'm kinda stuck till my ride wants to go...

I really would hate to ask my bf to give me a ride because he hadn't been invited to it and would probably end up just watching the bags again... I don't want to do that to him, especially since his friends won't be there to amuse him.

I'm like I was so existed I was asked to do this photoshoot too...but it looks like I won't be able to physically get there so... T_T I'm so not sneaking on to a tourist bus to get there. (I'm so not sure why a tourist bus goes there but the normal bus doesn't?)

I think it finally hit me that I have a con this weekend. *_* Yes. The excitement is there now. I just need to pack my car and iron out Gakuko today. So excited to wear this tomorrow although I know it is going to be a pain to walk around in.

After a sleepless night, and a mercifully short work day, I have decided to cheer myself up by taking out my shoe box of pretty things and ruminating over all that I could make.

There is. She is locked forever in battle with the evil one who they call The Unstitcher or He Who Frays. It is the ambition and hardwork of the world of cosplayers that forces the eternal battle in her favour.

Nay, nay! You can do it! We have just less than two years, but we have time to hone our skills. I cannot promise you sanity, sister-in-stitches, but I can promise you madness!

Eh!!, just working on my prop staff for X-Men Origins style Gambit (I collected all the clothes I needed for the costume so that's done). After cutting down a funnel to cup the crystal ball. I decided to use sodering wire, since it molded to the PVC and funnel, and wrap it about 6-7 inches from the pipe to the funnel, covering it. The I tacted it in various places with a sodering iron to make it hold. Only thing it's a little off balance due to the added weight of the wire but it's a prop as long as it looks good in the end the weight difference of the one end really doesn't matter to me. Besides it's not like I'm going to try twirling it kung fu style

Went to JoAnn's and got me some more embroidery floss. Ends up they were having a sale on the stuff and I didn't even notice! All my floss ended up being under $3, and if I had noticed that sooner I could've gotten my boning!! *headdesk* Ah well, I should finish Anju before I really start on Gakuko anyways...
