Now that school is officially over, it's work-on-cosplay time!! (Don't know whether it's a "YAAAAAAAY!" or a "NOOOO! -.-" ... I guess it's sorta both)
Time to work hard!~

Same goes for the designer -dies a thousand deaths at the thought of how much money will be spent on the fabric alone for this dress-
Holy crap, 30 yards?! What are you making anyway?

I felt the same way when my college ended. Lol. XD

So my mom wants to go to longwood gardens in PA. I am resisting the urge to bring a cosplay with me to get pretty pictures of. Well I can scout at least and see if they allow photoshoots.

Deerling is coming along nicely. Although I'm a little stumped on what to do for socks. All the pink socks I find are too dark and the shoes I'm using don't look right without socks. I'm going to try using my yellow ones from Pikachu. If not, I'll try dying socks.

Also I saw Brave last night and I'm considering doing Merida. I could probably use my real hair as I have very bright red hair. Although it would need a lot of styling. Couldn't hurt to try.

So my family and I were evicted from our house on Thursday. I'm in a scramble trying to find all of my cosplay pieces so that I can get them ready for Anime Midwest.

So far it looks like I'm going to have to remake Lucy's horns but those are easy to do and then I'm going to have to and buy a little bit of makeup but nothing too major. I am so glad I grabbed my wig and my Lucy cosplay before they put it in a bag.

So it looks like I now own a sewing machine! I happened to mention to my stepmom that I'd really like one for my birthday and how there were a bunch on sale at Joann's, and she said I could probably have my stepsister's since she never even touches it. When my stepsister got home, the conversation pretty much went like this:

"Danyelle, how much do you love your sewing machine?"
"Christie can have it."

Awesome! It's not like an amazing sewing machine or anything since it's pretty old, but I'm not advanced enough for something super fancy yet anyway. I'm so excited, I definitely want to practice sewing more this summer. ;u;

I can't work on cosplay today. Which is sad because I'm motivated to do something. I have stuff to do today and my fingers are numb today. (Screw you carpel tunnel!) So tomorrow I'll finish sewing Sheryl and style my Shuu wig. I should cut out the pattern for my white dress part of my Saber cosplay tomorrow as well. ><;

While my laptop was broken and I had spotty access to the Internet the last few days, someone bought the Lightning wig I wanted. I'm *REALLY* heartbroken...

Spent a couple of hours shopping in a flea market and didn't find any main ingredients to any of my cosplays. Shopping for the right jackets in the summer is such a pain.

I do not want to cut any more strips of craft foam. I do not want to meticulously glue them together anymore. I do not want to put this much effort into something no one's going to pay attention to. But I have five more fucking yards of these bitches to make, and time's not going to start going any slower.

*sobs*

I found a pattern that's near perfect that I can modify without too much trouble...it's a wedding gown. 30. Yards. 30. I have no regrets, but dear god, it's probably gonna kill me.

I need to count the money in my elephant bank... I might have enough money to buy the sewing machine I want.

EXCELLENT. : D

Now that is how you get a sewing machine~

Straight and zigzag stitches are basically all I've ever used when sewing costumes. As long as you have those two stitches, pretty much all but the most elaborate costumes (or ones made of crazy materials) are within your reach!

I'm hating this Yoruichi cosplay right now! This shirt/halter top should not be this complicated. Grrrrr. Mayb I'll take a break and get back to it later.

Wow, that dress is pretty. Good luck with it.

After about 5 hours of work I finally have the patterns done for Saber's shawl. That took way longer than I thought it would. >_> Sadly, the top long piece is not accurate as I had to design it myself since the ref image didn't have it there. It looks nice and Roman enough to me(no, that is not a peace symbol, it's Nero's death cross) I guess I'll either start tracing it on the shawl tomorrow so get started on that Luka dress.
