That Hurricane Isaac is going to hit my house and I need to find a way to make sure my costumes don't get damaged! >.< (Seriously, it sounds stupid and sort of selfish, but that's years of money and work!)

Though I live in Canada, so no hurricanes, I suggest putting your stuff into a tight-lidded waterproof tote bin, and put it up on the top floor/attic other high point of the house. That SHOULD keep rain and storm damage out, hopefully nothing breaks open if the wind gets to it. To be on the safe side I'd put strong packing tape around the lid to keep it shut.

Decided to take advantage of my Michael's employee discount since this is my last week there before I fly back north for college. Bought what was probably our entire stock of white air-dry clay that wasn't the Crayola junk and lots of black paint in preparation for Black Rock Shooter Beast. Anything I don't use, the rest of my group surely will. xD I also went to Joann's since it's around the corner to use up my truckload of coupons, and grabbed a couple of patterns and most of my BRSB fabric.

This is going to happen. I am so psyched.

Finished editing the blazer for my Heroine cosplay. I'm hoping to get a commission for the school patch but it doesn't look promising right now. >_<

Also I got everything for Pascal's staff painted. I'm a bit worried about the craft foam since it became softer and less rigid after I spray painted it. I'm hoping it will bounce back and harden again when the paint dries.

LESSON! Goodwill is not always cheaper for cosplay accessories. Spent $20 on a watch there, only to discover the time adjustment twiddly thing was missing. And I found a nearly identical one for $12 at Target. >_*

Time to make an awkward return to goodwill...

It is. For a while I was like 'Oh it's kinda cool..' because I only watched half a playthrough of it..Now that she's said that I'm just like GAAARRRYYY <3 And yes, an anime would be wonderful ;-;
And come visit me and you could! Pssshh..I'll just have a harem of Ib's and Mary's. xD

It only took me a minute or two to download, it's really cool too! *w* I'm at the part where I stopped watching people play it, so now I'm really into it. xD

On that note...I am surprised with how many people are selling Garry wigs O_o Thankfully girlfriend suggested the one I was planning on getting, so we both like it xD I think I'll get it next week when I get more money, so I'm not broke. Then I get to go get more makeup for eyebrow coloring and looking like a manly man!
...Ciel might as well wait until Christmas at this rate, Orz Thankfully there isn't a huge list of people I want to cosplay so it isn't like I'm shoving plans to the side..

Has anyone had any luck putting fake nails on gloves and have them look convincing? Turns out I can't white out my hands for Death without leaving little white prints everywhere. For D*C I'm simply going to wear gloves, but I'd like to have white hands in the future. Any ideas?

Oh, and I'm getting really pissed with Avast. It keeps blocking me from going to ACParadise. It says there's viruses and malware. ACParadise has checked lots of things and said they've narrowed it down to simply Avast giving them issues. Grrr! I wanted to get my new pics up! Darn it!

@Kaylee_Frye: The cosplayer who did the Doctor Who Weeping Angel costume used pantyhose, I think. Sewed them very carefully into gloves, then painted and with fake nails stuck on.

Thanks! I may have to give that a try.

ETA: I just found the tutorial on TheRPF. Why didn't I look there first? Thank you!!!

You'll have to wear the 'gloves' as you paint them and as they dry, or else they will shrink, before gluing on the nails too.


Found $20 knockoff Converse THAT FOLD OVER YAY. Just need to find the fabric, finish America's wig (PROCRASTINATION CAUSE THE WIG SUCKS,) order the coveralls, blacks socks and grab those black knockoffs from Family $$ before I'm completely done with everything.

Oh. And America's glasses.

Thanks! I'll hopefully not have to worry, color-wise, because they're going to be for Death, so I'll be able to simply get some white ones. The nails, yeah, I'd probably forget to have them on.

This is great! I'll be able to do so many more versions of Death now that I can cover my arms!

Ordered some fabric swatches to see what I want to use for the trim on my Kyoko shorts. Also, got the denim jacket for Makoto.
