I was making a prop for one of my cosplays from wood which requires three complex shapes to be sawed out and glued together. So I first did them by hand and they turned out okayish - I figured I'd glue them together and then sand them because that way you would get them even on the overlapping parts.

Except I accidentally glued them crooked, so I had to toss out maybe 4 hours with a hand figure saw (those things are horrible and keep having to have the sawblade replaced).

So I bought the cheapest possible electric saw I could find. I just finished one of the three complex shapes in under 5 minutes.

My thought now: Electric saws are awesome ^_^

Hopefully, I can get another job and quickly. *sigh* Even if I get a job I can't afford cosplay... I hate bills T_T
Awww, that stinks. Hope you find a job soon.

First day of AnimeNext over! ^_^ Like I thought Gakuko was a pain in the butt to walk around in. Like, if I did not pick up my train I would trip over myself. >_>. However it was fun and I did find out about a Persona photoshoot today at 5 so I have to do a quick change into Minako after the Exorcist photoshoot. My shoulder and left arm are killing me though since I was carrying my heavy purse in my hand(I could not put it on my shoulder due to my sleeves). I'm just hoping it won't slow me down today cause I have a lot of running around to do.

Thinking about doing Thor again for a con in October, but I'm now also thinking of doing the movie version, since he's become more recognizable.

Oh god, hand sewing pleather WITH blisters on your fingers already (not from sewing, from a bunch of dirt-shovelling I had to do earlier today). Owww. And the worst part is I've got around another three or four hours of it to do, THEN sewing through thick boots and fur (not faux fur, an actual pelt).

Parents are coming to visit and spend 2 nights with me starting Monday. I haven't seen them since early January. o:

But! My spare bedroom's primary use is my cosplay construction room. Which currently looks like a tornado hit it because I was trying to organize my bookshelf and also working on crafty projects for an event at work.

I need to cleeeaaaannnn~ .-.

Thanks to my lovely friend Mary, I now have a suitable pattern for Riku's black vest. She made it so simple and awesome, I can't wait to get started on it tomorrow. The fabric's all washed so now all I have to do is iron it... progress! ^^

I am being blessed with my own sewing machine thanks to my grandmother and I also found out I am getting a 100 dollars back from my school this week so that I will be able to go get fabrics and patterns to start on a few simple cosplays.

There's this one character from LoL that I want to cosplay so bad.. But he's shirtless. Even if I could find a way, I already dislike binding for long period of time so I'd never last in this. BUT HE LOOKS SO COOL. "orz

Craaaaaaap. I completely forgot to pre-reg for Everfree last night. I REALLY hope their registration is down due to their technical issues and not because they sold out again. OTL

Got my wig for Zelos and my wig for Maximilian!

And I just realized that I don't have a curling iron to style Maximilian. Derp.

If you have a straightening iron you can still curl hair. :3

My flatiron is really wide, and I need really tight curls. My mom has a curling iron, so I'll just borrow hers next time I visit. All my wig heads are there anyway.
