I'm finally committing to my next major project.

I've gotten lazier and lazier over the years and I've taken a lot of detours away from JRock cosplay, but ever since I saw Moi Dix Mois perform live and hear their interpreter whisper excitedly to them about Haunted and got to shake Mana's hand, I've been really inspired and I really wanted to come back to the kind of cosplay that thrills me the most.

I'm going to start on my Myaku Toshiya Remake. The second incarnation of my original dream costume. The costume that I built Haunted to go with.

217 days, 12 hours, 49 minutes, 39 seconds until the Party Starts!

Maybe next year I can start on my Haunted Remake, because my ultimate dream cosplay is pairing Myaku Toshiya with a working, playable Haunted Killer 3epo.
Current Projects
- Myaku Toshiya Remake
- Haunted Killer 3epo - Working Version
- GMG Erza

Preregistered For
- GeekGirlCon '13
- Aki-Con '13
- Sakura-Con '14

I've pretty much drawn up my Max Factory Vn02 Kaito wings and all. However, the current situation with my wings has me worried and curious at the same time. The weight has went up noticeably since upgrading to the new standard which is an 1/8th inch thicker and harder.

I will be testing if the new construction methods will eliminate the need for harder wood in the con, Youma, after the next one, Chicon. The structure will be strictly for my white wings as that is going to be a single day affair. Once the current wing structure has been vetted, I will keep that with my black wings. I will also bring the ACen vetted structure as back up. If there is time, and I believe there is, I will be rebuilding the black wing structs since there was an adjustment on the base level.

So, in the next two months, there'll be definitely one, but possibly two, new wings.

I just want a non-breaking unified structure...

This so much. Odd how hard it is to work alone, but when you have company it's even harder! XD -suffers from this madness herself-

Speaking of working... -stares at staff head that needs paperclaying- Err... I guess I better get to work.

My cosplay rant of the day....

It seems I always have to contact my Yuna commissioner and request progress, rather than them actively giving me updates....-___- Call me high maintenance, but I wouldn't be so irate if it was the other way around....*sigh*

And with school preoccupying my mind right now, when I think about it, I haven't received/requested an update for about two and a half weeks. 9_9 And my deadline is near....TIME TO E-MAIL!

Okay, okay, okay... what I am I missing? Everything's almost set out and ready to wear...need to get my makeup together.....maybe get out a backpack for tomorrow's non-cosplay day. Print schedule...get list of stuff preowned to prevent overlaps....charge cellphone because the batteries probably dead though I haven't used it in a week so who knows....
Oh, and paint nails. Blergh?

No it was my Rangiku Cosplay. Someone in my family brought up that she shows way too much cleavage so i was told if i could find a version of her covered up some in her soul reaper outfit I could cosplay her....well I didnt so i was forced to drop the cosplay. I havent told my family about the Chun Li cosplay as I know the thing about her thighs showing will be brought up just as Rangiku's cleavage was. My Chun Li is a secret cosplay that im going to change into at a con since none of my family will be going with me. This is so not fair..I should be able to cosplay who i want but when your the one living off others i guess you dont get your way

Gah. These feathers are using up so much modge podge. I've already coated them six times and I've used up almost half of the bottle of modge podge. -_-. I still need to coat the feathers four more time. I'm hoping there will be enough left over so I can coat Saber's sword with it once I get the black design on it tomorrow as well as Pascal's staff.

Gotta love finding a cut of fabric that you can not remember for the LIFE of you what you bought it for. :P I want to use it for a costume I'm currently working on, but... what if I remember what I bought it for afterwards and then can't use it for that? Decisions decisions... xD

Trying to get stuff done when you have the flu sucks so much. I ache all over, and yet I'm still working away at getting cosplay stuff done. blah. But slowly, ever so slowly, my in-progress pile is shrinking, so there is that.

I. Hate. Sewing. Snaps! Seriously. I was working on my Pegasus jacket today, and the jacket I bought to modify buttoned up the fron tthe normal way, so I got some snaps to make it button off to the side. They are some of the biggest pains in the ass to sew on! DX

At least they're done, so All I have to do now is finish adding the white trim and the buttons, and I'll have my Pegasus jacket completed! I can't wait to take pictures.
