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.

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;
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.

I think I may have been working on my cosplay too much today... I just completely seriously explained to my mom that I was upset because people just do not appreciate differences in tape. Like how my father said that black gorilla tape and black duck brand duct tape look exactly the same. ... very upsetting... now back to the sun hat and scythe that I am making out of duct tape...

I think all of this built up cosplay motivation will FINALLY get used ... for the past week or two I've had massive amounts of motivation to work on costumes, and nothing to work on. But as of tomorrow I'll have a few little things to work on, and as of Friday I'll have a full costume to work on. So excited, can't wait to finally let out all of this built up motivation, it's been driving me nuts XDD

I've never cosplayed with a huge prop before. I always wonder whether it's worth the hassle. It looks WICKED cool though, like the Celtys and their scythes at AX today. Also I guess that's relatively easy to carry around compared to the other cosplays I saw that had larger weaponry o___o

So today I was talking to these two girls at obon about different anime series. Then they ask me; "Do you like Hetalia?". . . My friends in the area and I burst out laughing. After laughing, I replied "Hello, I cosplay Germany and I ran the past two Hetalia panels." lol the looks on their face's when they realized I was the Germany from the panel made me laugh even more. They were there at the panel. >.>;

Also, the theme with my friends and I about cosplay it seems is "Like the series, Hate the fandom."

Just finished (well, last night) pouring boiling water over my Suicune wig to curl it. Now comes the "wait at least 24 hours to let it thoroughly dry" part. Yeah... it's 107F degrees plus a high humidity today so it might take a little longer then that. -sigh-

Also picked out the pattern for Suicune's underdress. Now I'm in the ref-hunt and planning stages for (ccs) Sakura's 2nd Movie dress and (TRC) Sakura's halloween artbook dress. I really want to go by Joann's soon so I can actually get some material to start actual work on these cosplays. >_< I even have a giftcard to use that I won at Animazement!

Also, I must have lost my mind if I'm planning on having Suicune and Halloween!Sakura -plus whatever my brother decides on doing for halloween - done before halloween.

Do I want to make this cosplay I'd like to make when I have little coconuts and the charater has big coconuts? It's to revealing to try to make my coconuts look bigger. In matter of fact my coconuts might vanish in this cosplay and I might look like I'm crossplaying. OUI at times I wish I had a lovely bunch of coconuts.

I wonder if it will be better if the embroidery is symmetrical or not. I am working on the pattern for the skirt and well, it looks really odd to me right now(it is asymmetrical) although from the little bit of the ref image that I could see of the other side, it looks like it is asymmetrical...but it looks so weird...

I brought the wig I ordered for Faust VIII to my friend, and she tried styling it like his and she just couldn't make it work, because the back wasn't thick enough and was too flippy. I was really upset because I still don't have a wig for Faust, and I suddenly felt incompetent in my ability to pick out wigs, so I angrily took a comb to it.

...that's when it started to look like Denmark. Not a complete waste after all.

Good to know! c:

Hrmmm... I'm highly considering cosplaying Sapphire from Princess Knight, but I don't know if those are tights or just really form-fitting pants. Leaning towards the tights, but I'm trying to make sense of it. xD; I suppose I could lengthen the top into like a super short dress or something? And then wear like, a couple pairs of white tights and a pair of white flats? Hell if I know. OTL
