Running a fashion show is SO much different than running a costume contest. x_x Stupid music that has to be stupid and upbeat. Now I have to meet with 2-3 other people to coordinate everything on site and write up an introduction blurb.

If you have a DJ friend, you could always ask for a mix of two or three songs with an upbeat to it. DJ's have an insane massive library of songs, so for them it'll be easy to pick 3 out of thousands of songs they have.

On other news, I need to research on designs for my AX2013 cosplay, Max Factory Kaito.

Woo, I think between my boyfriend and I we have figured out a pattern for Roxy and got fabric for the base dress. So I can start sewing that tomorrow. Now I need to learn how to attach lace and beads...

I should also be able to order my Naoto wig tomorrow!

These textbooks need to sell on ebay so I can get some more money D:

Whilst looking through the clothes my mom's friend gave us, I found a black pleated skirt *le flail* it looks like a school skirt, and it's my size. Now, what to use it for....Or I could bleach it and dye it a certain color, is that hard to do though?

Hard part is going to be finding a hotel room in the area without breaking the bank. There are still some overflow rooms available, as of my last "but I wanna goooooo" check of the website.

Honestly, if you can go, I hear it's an absolute blast... if not, it'll be the same place, same time next year, and it gives you a whole year to plan and obsess And pre-registration for it opens up in early September, with really low rates.
It is so much fun! There's something there for every fan of every kind. It's kinda like what I've heard ComiCon can be like, but without the commercialism, studios, and is spread out over 5 hotels so it's not as crowded.
They start pre-reg for the next year at the Con and very soon after in the store. Some host hotels are already taking reservations for next year. We've got our room in the Sheraton for next year already. Which makes me really happy because that is where Brit Track is based and next year is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who! I was going to be living out of that hotel anyway, this just makes it easier!

You lucky! I am so jealous! I would love to find a black pleated skirt. I am really not looking forward to making it. You could always find a green jacket, yellow shirt, and some boots and be Daria.

ARGH. So I crashed my bike yesterday, this my first day being able to bike to work since the flu knocked me flat. How this relates to cosplay?

I'm going to a mini-con tomorrow.

And I think I sprained my ankle. It was okay yesterday. I was able to complete my ride home and walk a little bit, but today I can barely put any weight on it at all. ARGH.

Yeah, it's hard -- and may give you very inconsistent results. I'd just leave it black.

Uggggggh, woke up yesterday with my neck and shoulders locked and in screaming pain. A trip to my chiropractor and a bunch of gel ice patches and Icy Hot cream seem to have helped, but this probably means no embroidery for several days ... and probably no cleaning or anything this weekend. FAIL. >_<

Dang it, I thought the rain would mean the trains wouldn't run and I would be free to work on cosplay today. Nope. >_> Oh well, I don't really have much left to work on anyway without another trip to Joanns which I might be going to tomorrow with my friends...maybe.

I also realized I almost have everything for Death Scythe. 0_0 The only thing I don't have is her trenchcoat and well, scythe. Those pieces won't take long at all, I know that. Dang it, I cannot add her back onto my list. I'm already booked solid for cons next year. >_< I'm already having difficulty figuring out where to wear Pascal and Tamaki.

Just had a funny idea. Since I plan on meeting John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness at Fan Expo.in two weeks and that I plan on making a latex mask for Igor in the near future, maybe I should make a mask of the Face of Boe?

Well that's good to know that there are still tickets! Hotel and ticket would not be a problem, it's the cost of the plane ride that may be an issue. Lol
But maybe I'll just plan for next year, I'm already planning to go to SDCC next year so why not add Dragon*Con so I can have a summer of epic cons to go to next year

So, my new core costume lineup for 2013 is pretty much set.

Kaito - Max Factory [Vocaloid]
Sebastian Michaelis - Demon Form [Kuroshitsuji]
Folken Fanel - Black Winged Angel [Escaflowne]

All wings. I'm milking it!

Max Factory Kaito is possibly the most ambitious project I've ever had. It'll have wings and mechanical parts and EL Wires/LED. Completely made from scratch and rule breaking...

Finished Orphen season two. It was a good series, and the ending didn't suck, so now I'm even more excited to cosplay Hartia at New York Comic Con.

Though I'm starting to get frustrated because I can't find my Tower of Fang Necklace. I had it last week when I was taking Hartia pictures and now I have no idea where it is.

So I asked my friend about comissioning Koromaru for me and she said she will try. ^_^ So happy and excited for that since I love the plushies she makes.

Also, I'm thinking about switching from Pascal to school uniform Cheria. It will be much easier on me and I just need a wig to complete that. Although, I have been looking around online and finding a wig with a short clip on ponytail in a raspberry/rose pink seems to be impossible. Either the color doesn't come with a clip on or the ponytails are really long. >_<

EDIT: After looking around a bit more, I found this wig. The color is perfect and the ponytails aren't SUPER long. The price tag though. >_> And I'm not sure if the ponytails are moveable or not. 0_o
