Okay. My two week vacation/road trip is now over. That makes, in addition to going back to work, it means GET WORKING ON YOUR COSPLAYS MOOFY. I have... what, three weeks until fanexpo and a few more than that until the Zelda Symnphony and I have the Game of Thrones dress and my Lulu dress to finish for their respective events.... and still watch ALL of the Olympics.

I did however manage to go to a Jo-Ann's for the first time while I was in the States, and picked up some lovely brocade and braided trims....while sending emails to my aunt back to home to grab other materials while Fabricland had the 50% off sale. Synchronized cross continent shopping for the win!

Gaaah. Suddenly COSPLAY INSPIRATION. I already have too much on my plate but want to add more. I was named after a Doctor Who companion and TOTALLY want to cosplay her now... even though her most recognizable outfit is horrible and lavander and flight attendant-y.

If by Quorra you mean from Tron Legacy, aren't her sleeves just really long opera gloves?

Nope. Look closely and you'll see she does have upper-arm sleeves attached at the bottom to her actual shirt, PLUS gloves.

Ohmygosh I look so great! ;w; I can't imagine my first hand-made costume would be this nice. I know I only have a couple days to finish the last 8-10% or so, but I haven't been as excited for this costume as I am right now! Trying it all on, with the wig and everything, I feel so great! My Sheena dream is coming to life! <33

Can you get pictures? I feel like it's as great as you say.

My Pegasus wig seriously looks like a ghost in dim lighting. And I swear everytime I look over, the tripod and wighead has gotten closer to my bed 0_0

Making a non-commission to surprise someone on here. Not sure why to be honest? I guess a friendly gesture? O.o...

We'll see how it goes.

Gotta paint on these designs on the Plasma sword, shouldn't be to bad. Other than that, it's turning out better than I thought..well the same as I thought.
TOMORROW, WE DINE IN HELL!

Been doing the math in my head and am disappointed to find out that I probably still won't be able to get my scale mail without some more saving. I was so sick last week I took two days off of work, but since I don't work full time I don't get sick days. I lost a good chunk of change because of that stupid cold.

Ah well... Patience. Patience is key. I'll be able to get started on Loki soon, and in the meantime
Ive still got Gakuko to work on.

Gahhhhhhhh. The pieces/accessories of my cosplay are finally all cut out of foam but I could really use opinions on the proportions before I begin to finalize/assemble the pieces and all I can get from my family is strange stares...

EDIT: Do you all suppose it would be okay to post in the costume critique thread even though the costume is nowhere near complete? My OCD prevents me from going any further until I know the proportions are correct and unfortunately that's a large component of this costume.
