:3 Ohh a wig. Nice! I had a wig-buying compulsion not too long ago. >>;; TOTALLY HOLDING BACK, IT'S QUITE PAINFUL. Ughhh. My paychecks mostly go to my student loans. = m= Yay for being a college graduate. /not/

OMG. I feel the same way about sales when I got no money. 0,o YOU JUST SEE THINGS right at the moment when you got no money for. :/

Hopefully there will be another chance for you and I for those great sales! I need a wig by Spring for a cosplay too (it never hurts to buy too early). >>;;

Gah! Why can't I find a decent visor/face shield for my helmet!? I've been looking and looking, and I just can't find anything close enough that I can use... ><;;

I'm getting the Rufio during their September sale- I need a good hawk wig by next August, and might as well get 15% off now! Also, the summer wig collection is making me burn from the inside out. They're so pretty ;_;

AND YES. As soon as I waste my money, BOOM.

Now that I've figured out Pikachu, I have to blow $16 on a damn hoodie. (And there was this pretty pink one I wanted....) Maybe I'll just grab a cheap ass cardigan or something?

Meanwhile, I finished America's flip flops.

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.
