Times where life screws you over... My stepdad lost his job, I lost my job, and the government took away my family's food stamps. The only income we have is my mom's disability check. I love cosplay but there is no way I can afford it right now. Ugh just when I ordered my wigs for my cosplays too...

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

Ohshit. D: That is some serious, serious suck.

Hope the situation gets better, and quick. .-.

Finally sold my black trench coat to another big guy that the original buyer sent to check it out...so $100 for me. I then ordered the dark brown trench I was eyeing for my movie style Gambit cosplay, at least this new one one will actually fit (the black one was too big). All I need now is to return the black hat I had ordered and get a refund and then get the dark brown/chocolate colored one to match the trench.

Indeed. I was like 'omg all this at once!? All of this happened within the past two days.' I really hope so too...

Ugh. So much effing sewing to finish and it's just too late at night to really do any more now. Fortunately I still have a week and three days to finish everything, but two or so missed hours is still a pain in the ass.

Please remember that cosplaying is a luxury hobby. I think even when you find another job (hopefully soon), you should still take a break from cosplaying in order to stockpile some savings. Good luck!

Cosplay is only a luxury hobby only when you think of it that way. There are ways of doing it on a tight budget. I can't do a lot of cosplays but I can. I've made Shuu in under 30$, including wig. I just can't do any big cosplays like Saber. Which was going to be my WCS prelim entry in October. Don't know what I'm going to do about that.

My friend and I got bored while hanging out so we decided to watch random episodes of Shaman King.

After 5 minutes of serious fangirling I decided I seriously need to do something for my Faust VIII cosplay this weekend. Maybe I can Finish the scythe.

I've come to the realization that I have been bit by the cosplay bug. I can't stop thinking of new things to cosplay and then making lists of what I need to get and do.

I'm probably adding two cosplays to my list for Anime Midwest.

Here's whats on my mind...is commissioners for hire. I hired someone to do a jersey for me...and I rarely hear from her. Last I heard from her was last Friday and she said she hadn't started yet...but the deadline I gave her is the 15th. Still no word. No idea if it's even getting done or not....I'm worried.

After looking over the Night Circus photos my friends and I took today, I realized something.

My Marco is making This Face...in every picture.

When I get my wig, I'm going to get her to smile more, because Marco is NOT that stoic around his girlfriend!

I wish I could be hit by a cosplay bug sometimes. I usually find myself unable to think up cosplay ideas.

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 ^_^

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.
