Since I already cosplay Suki, I was thinking that that would be a fun summer cosplay, especially since there already is a beach scene. She has a canon swimsuit, but it's not that recognizeable, as well as strapless-- eeek.

She also has the Fire Nation outfit, which I think would be a lot cooler to make-- but do you think that would transfer well to being a swimsuit? I'm not sure.

Gah, decisions! (And thanks for any help deciding in advance!)
Haha, the link for the canon swimsuit redirects straight to a site instead of the image. BUT from your description of the outfit, if the swimsuits bothers you a bit, don't go for it. You might look rather uncomfortable in it. I say go for the Fire Nation outfit. It doesn't really read 'swimsuit', but I think it'll work anyways (like it's some kind of fancy swimsuit, haha!) :3 And definitely, it would be much cooler!

Good luck!
2016/2017 Cosplay plans:

Fabric district run while I was down in LA yesterday yielded a bunch of cheap fabric for muslins, but no success on the other things I was vaguely hunting for. Which is good -- I really don't need to spend more money on fabrics I'm not using for a while. >_>;

And my embroidery for Catelyn's cloak is progressing nicely. Now if I could just get to sewing outside of my work breaks, I might be able to work on her dresses too ... *fails*
Current Projects:
Therese von Ludowing (Sound Horizon's Märchen)
Catelyn Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones)
Elisabeth - red ballgown (Elisabeth - Takarazuka version)
Thessaly (Sandman - The Kindly Ones)

I'm soooooo tired of staying up all night for the past couple days. The positive side of staying up, is I have been getting a lot of stuff done so that helps out. But my room likes like a tornado hit it. Well..time to get working on the commissions, weee!
Hail to the king, baby

Though I've been telling myself for ages that I need to finish up an outfit I've been working on for well over a few months, but I keep getting distracted! And I just recently fell in love with the Madness of Duke Venomania PV and ended up throwing something together for Miku really quick... akjhfakjhfa aaah

Jeeze Louise, $50 just for Setzer's shirt stuff, and that was with a coupon, not even counting the pattern. Man, lace is expensive.

I know I'm doing these costumes all-out, but yeeegh. I shudder to think of the price tag for that coat. It's got like twelve acres of gold trim.

I really want to cosplay p4 Naoto in her detective older outfit. I already have a wig and the outfit isn't too complicated. Plus I haven't seen anyone do that version yet. Dang it...and I will have time to shop before my internship today too...

Super Happy! Ordered my drafting supplies today, spent last night doing the break down of each design ad number crunching for yardage. I'm very pleased with myself that I found motivation to get so many of the miniscule details out of the way without having to force myself. AND I got all the budgeting done for January's road trip.

Now onto Phase Two: Drafting, Fabric Purchase, Construction, group organizing, and of course driving music selection XD. I thought I would fall behind but it looks like I'm on time (I never like to say "ahead" of schedule because there always seems to be ten million things left to do at the last minute. XD)

Now if my card would hurry up and get here so I can finish hotel booking for Ohayocon, Katsucon, and PAX East =P I'm taking this as a step in learning patience and persistence, lol.

It's time! It's time! It's time to cosplay! It's been a very restful month since my last con and it'll be an even longer dry period till my next major convention, Youmacon. Oh, wings! How I have missed you, I'm only implementing a small update so nothing should break. I've rebuilt the majority of the left wing just for this event.

In retrospect, I probably should've gone and done a major rebuild for this convention using a few of the significant revisions that I've been floating in my head since this convention has key similarities to ACen, 6" rule and physical location. Oh, well.

FFFFFF I am so excited about finally having a design for a Rarity cosplay that I just wanna go out and do it, maybe possibly get it done by the 18th seeing as how my plans for that night are still up in the air, despite the fact that the time frame is near suicidal for me. Especially considering I'm pretty sure the design I came up with is just a tad beyond my skill level.

Gakuko is not doing a good enough job of getting my mind off of it! DX

Alas, part of the problem is that I want to make Rarity so badly so I can just go out and prance around like a... well, pony. XD But the costume itself won't be needed until Halloween. I'd make it only to be able not to have an excuse to wear it until October. Granted, the type of dress I have in mind can be worn outside of cosplay too, but I don't even have any special occasions to wear it for either. -w- Damn this need for instant gratification.

Either way I've been looking around and I can't find a pattern that even remotely looks like what I'm trying to go for. I'm probably going to have to go to my great aunt and see if she can help me draft a pattern... and tell me what to do in general. ^^; She has more of an idea of how to make a bustle than I do...
Working On:
Kamui (Fire Emblem: Fates) - 51%
Samemi - genderbent Samekichi (Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea) - 66%
Kagerou (Fire Emblem: Fates) - 77%
Foleo (Fire Emblem: Fates) - planning

Here, here.

Ugh. The one thing I was looking forward to ending off my summer was my Ciel wig. Which, by the way, I'm STILL having issues with. It might have been a misunderstanding, but if it isn't, The Five Wits are about to have to deal with a VERY stressed out and moody teenager, god bless them. Especially if they don't answer the email I sent them tonight. If it is tomorrow before they do...oh boy, I pity them, because I will be on a stress and hormone induced rage.

On another note...I fail at trying to do secret cosplays. Only a few hours and one of my friends guesses it Dx I am CONSIDERING cosplaying Gamzee...though I really am not sure. I remember how miserable I was dealing with the immature Hetalia and KH cosplayers, and...while a couple of my really awesome good friends plan to or already cosplay Homestuck, one that I know is a bad apple cosplays Karkat. Plus, while everything else would be pretty easy, I am the world's worst at makeup...and not sure if my parents would even let me wear it :/ Harrumph. It's pretty much on edge right now whether I will or not.

So I believe you will fine wih those lenses you have.
Yep, you're right. I decided not to waste money on new ones, good enough!
