Heated craft foam and shaped it for the first time today. I think I was afraid of the flame burning me than the craft foam. I wonder if this will work or should I just use wood or something for the wings on this staff.

uuuuurgh, WHYYYY does Quorra's armour have to have such a ridiculous pattern to it? There's so many fiddly little cuts and pieces and raised sections and seams that overlap the lights and shoulder seams that are on her BACK and a weird collar...... My brain is yelling at me that it's going to strike if I keep trying to make it understand this. X_X

Yup! I've got a few of those like that, although the ideas don't always work for both my husband and I. My husband can keep pulling out Walter (Hellsing) for decades so long as he keeps his hair long, but my ability to keep doing Seras probably won't last too long past 30. Similarly, I think my ability to pull off Olivier from FMA (one that's on the kinda-want-to-do list) would be best aided by another 10 years of age. I think my Madame Red one is one I can easily pull off till I'm pushing 40 so long as it still fits.

I know as long it fits, nothing's stopping me from costuming certain characters when I'm older, but it's nice to feel like I'm pulling it off.

Crap. Almost forgot to sew up a sleeve onto an undershirt to prevent it from sliding down...

Finally bought the third to last piece for Pikachu! Goddddddd. Never again will I style my own wigs or do gijinkas.

But now I just need to get some old Converse and figure out what color the vest should be.

Oh I likie! ^_^

Gah, my motivation to finish Saber is drifting away on the wind. No, no no. Stop it brain. You cannot lose motivation to work on Saber now. I put way too much effort and money into this already. >_< I know you want me to do Bacterial Contamination instead but I have to finish Saber.

Need to keep on paperclaying this staff. One pack goes a long way, but I think I'll need about half a pack more to finish up and fill in the bumpy spots.

Looking good, though. Looking good.

I think I've gone off the deep end. I'm okay with spending $140 on a wig, but I can't justify to myself buying every-day clothes.

Unless it can be used for both cosplay and every-day wear, then it's fine.

So if anyone needs cheap knock off Converse for under $10, Family Dollar has them.

Anyways, Pikachu is nearly done (FINALLY!!!) since I found the vest fabric for >$5 with lots to spare for the shoes and etc.

And then BMO will be given progress tomorrow since I get free labor from my cosplay partner.

And America wig s still be a total American about his bangs.

I don't think they had red at my store, but there was white you could always paint if yours don't have them in red.

Yes! My plan to gorilla glue my embroidery hoop back together worked! And now to sewing this emblem....

Also I'm debating whether to get the school logo patch from Fate/Extra commissioned or not for my Heroine cosplay. I mean, her hair does cover it in most scenes but still...
