Why is it that the moment I decide to save money for Aki Con, three new cosplays show up that I want to do in addition to the three in progress? ;A; And my parents will throw I fit if I spend all my money....

Attempting to learn the Motteke! Sailor Fuku dance from Lucky Star, if I were to ever, hypothetically of course, cosplay someone from it (most likely Konata, she fits my criteria perfectly with her height and what not hehe ^_^' ... ;_; ) I need to learn the dance! If someone were to ever play via speakers at a con I'd have to do the dance, it'd be expected from me!

My Butler!Grell ideas is at a standstill for now, ;_; I am looking for a coat a bit. Also, I'm kinda working on it by growing my hair out! That counts! ..Right? X'D

My dad was having a fit about letting me borrow his truck for Anime World Chicago before my mother had to calm him down. It was either his truck which runs amazingly or getting stuck with a black little blazer that breaks down. So he reluctantly is letting me use it.

Since my friend is paying for my ticket but he's not able to go, I've let him decide which cosplay I will do for AWC. He's been wanting me to be Videl for ages, so Videl it is. I just need to get purple socks. Luckily, I found some green snow boots that I've sort of altered for her at a thrift store.

Snow boots in August, I never thought I'd be saying that. Oh well, it's all in the sake of cosplay.

Welcome to the world of cosplay, where the costumes slowly suck the soul and money out of you.

In a way, we're all no better than your average druggie.

This. Oh my goodness, you're so right. XD The only reason I got a job this summer was to feed the addiction. ;A; I just can't stop. I thought I could stop at one, just try it once, but now I'm in over my head. I've lost control of my life. It's tearing my family apart and my husband feels like he doesn't even know me anymore. My children look at me like I'm a stranger. I just don't know what to do-

Wait... most of that is untrue. ._.;;;

But...uh... yeah. XD

Hngh... I'm considering not cosplaying Rarity after all. I already have the wig so I'm tempted to just do it anyways... but now there's so many costumes I want to do more. xD

Guess I will get my Naoto wig during the Arda sale!

Now I'm going to sneak in a question for you all. I posted in the MSPA thread but it's kind of dead there.
I'm thinking of doing this dress: http://i.imgur.com/smRre.jpg
Now, it's very formfitting so I want a kind of stretchy fabric for the bodice at least. Would that work? Any suggestions for type of fabric? I just don't even know what to look for.

Dang it Arda. I need to wait till I'm back in school before I can order the braid bun I need. >_< Oh well, hopefully they will have another sale by then.

Also I cut out the fabric to make Saber's choker. I need to draw out the design and transfer it onto the fabric. I'm also trying to figure out how I want to attach it. I'm thinking maybe a ribbon so I can control how tight around my neck it will be since I really don't like having things that close to my neck.

Nice. I hope the discount also includes back orders. I want Merry in Pumpkin but it's out of stock right now. You can make a back order on it though. I was already thinking of doing that because I hate checking the site everyday to see if it's been restocked.

I am TWENTY pounds lighter than the last time I weighed myself! *insert happy sobs* which was, ah, a month ago? Or more. I have a really infrequent struggle with working out, so this is very good ;_;

*sigh* and just me Motteke! Sailor Fuku Lucky Star dance. This is a time in which I had friends who liked cosplay and wanted to learn it with me. We could totally enter a masquerade *nods* But alas. They probably call me a freak behind my back XD (did I mention I don't have any irl friends that call you up and ask if you want to hang out, or don't judge you or so on ;_; )

Are Konata wigs hard to style? None of the (moderately cheap-ish) wigs seemed to be, except for the little peacock hair on top of her head..
