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...

Ugh. My brother is planning a weekend long get together with his friends for the weekend before AX. My busiest weekend. Really.

I'm also helping my friend figure out how to attach the buildings to her Matryoshka hoodie...

The hat I ordered for my Gambit cosplay won't be here for about a week...not too long but I'm really curious to see what it looks like up close. I still need to order the wig, I found a perfect one...but I'll hold off for the time being.

Heh!! and about the staff again, I think I misjudged one major thing when I made it..like I said the weight I added wooden rod to it and inserted into the PVC so it wouldn't be flopping around and the added soddering wire wrap does add weight too. It's been some time since I worked one anything so I'm a bit rusty.

I hope I can get pass whatever weapons policy with it..though Nekocon( the only con I can go to this year) doesn't seem to have anything up about the policy at the moment.

Also, I've been playing with my Tatsumi Saiga wig...it's a little strange looking. It came in this gelled style..which is what I like about it...but I'm going to have to do something to it because the front hangs just above my eyes and tends irritates them.

So I found out my friend wants to cosplay Eight from FF: Type 0 which is awesome since I want to cosplay Cater. XD He goes to Comiccon though which I don't go to though. >_> Well, it's more than I don't care to go... Ugh, I still think it would be fun to cosplay with him though.

And I'm all set for tomorrow. ^_^ Gakuko is all ironed out and such. I hope it isn't going to rain and easy to walk in for hours and my wig won't kill my neck.

.....if my current train of thought continues down this path, there will be the death of drapery, sacrificed for its flowing, plentiful fabric.

^I think the drapery will understand and allow itself to be sacrificed.

So excited for AnimeNext today. However like always I end up getting ready earlier than I need to and now I need to hang out in my house for a good half an hour before I can go pick my friends up.

True, true. The sacrifice of good drapery was made canon by Gone with the Wind, after all.

LOL, I know that feeling. I'm like that at every con.
"It's three in the morning, brain. We can't go yet."
"but...but....convention?"

Perhaps, I will attempt to go to Fabricland tomorrow. They are having that sale. Perfect excuse to pick up fabric for the King Landing Maxi Dress test. How to smuggle material back into house so it doesnt look like I was there on the other hand....

I was just thinking of getting a new leather trench for my Gambit..only thing is the one I want is a kind of classic brown a tad lighther than what he has in the movie and I'm not sure if it would go too well with the purple shirt.

Edit: Nevermind I found a better one and the right darker shade of brown.
