GWAHR! why don't they have examples of contact colours on light eyes aswell as dark! DDD:
I know what you mean. XD Most of the pinkyparadise models have brown eyes, so I was a bit nervous ordering from them, but I ordered 2 pairs regardless. I have blue-gray eyes, and the colors show up great on me! I ordered the Sweet Vassen lenses in green and brown. The green looks great, and the brown gets little bit muddled with the blue in my eyes, but it's still noticeable brown. Next time I order from them I'll look for a lense that has more brown on the lense, since the Sweet Vassen series isn't a very bold brown.

Second set of anxiously awaited fabric samples came in today, from the second place I requested them from. Trying to find the right shade of lilac/lavender for my husband's robes...

I open the envelope, and instead of 6 pieces of stretch velvet in the colors requested... I get 4 pieces of ratty-arse looking glitter spandex in pink, fuschia, black, and silver. It looks like someone stole Barbie's prom dress and stapled it to a piece of paper.

Needless to say... I'll be going with the first place I ordered samples from. They at least read requests. I'm just shaking my head at the second place.

Funny, this morning was I kind of freaking out over finishing this commission on time, but now I'm feeling pretty damn good about it. Yay.

And now that the pieces of this hammer are drying, it's time for dinner, and then tackling Kurogane's boot covers again. Now that I've fooled around with making vinyl armor, there's much less of a chance that I'll royally screw it up again.

Ahaha I love applying facial hair. My dogs freak out since I don't do it that often (they've finally gotton used to me in wigs). Tony Stark beard test #1: complete. But my fancy lace-base moustache is a tad too wide for my face. I'll delicately trim it tomorrow.

WELLP, it looks like I have an excuse to work on Len and Iris in record time. The Obon festival at the Japanese gardens nearby got rained out and they had to extend hours and such... whatever the case, they felt bad for holding it all up, and since sales for the tickets were online only, they sent emails to everyone about discounted membership prices - which means free access to the grounds for a year... Which is absolutely perfect for cosplays like Len and Iris! Heck, I can probably even do something for Gakuko there too, even though her outfit is Chinese inspired but shhhhhhh...

So... while I normally use scraps and recycle as often as I can when making cosplays... I'm going to have to recycle to the limit now. What I mean to say is... the new water heater was $1,100 and I still need to get a laptop for school...

So... I saved myself from explaining what cosplay was by simply stating, "theater work." It made me look like instead of a hardcore otaku dweeb to a theater dork. Lateral moves...
