Feeling much better today! Still going to take it easy and get plenty of sleep tonight, but I'm really thinking I won't kill myself by going to the con. Small victories.

Going to get some packing done and then back to sewing!

I have officially survived FanExpo! But now.... the convention season is over for the year, which does sadden me.... of course my brain will not stop suggesting ideas. None of them good ones, but the poor thing has exhausted itself over the last few weeks so I'll let it ramble on for awhile.

But now I also have to up the anty since I leveled up, so I am at loss as to what to create....

Mmmmm....winter convention.....that sounds pleasant. <3 I have often wondered what it would be like to be cold while in costume. Perhaps an excuse, if I actually need one, to make Red Riding Hood and her epic cape of epicness.

I just want to warn you, there's a reason why I shuddered and it wasn't because of the cold.

I wasn't there, but I heard last year's DTAC was poorly booked in part because of a double booking with a hunting convention and in part the MTCC staff severely limiting where DTAC goers could be at the convention centre. So I'd be weary of DTAC.

Got Pikachu's vest fabric, just need the shoes and I'm done!

Meanwhile, America is still at a dead end. Might just move his mechanic outfit to Wasabi and use the sweater vest one for NDK.

GAH IT'S SO CLOSE AND HIS WIG IS STILL HORRIBLE.

A winter one would actually be nice for me. I go to Anime Central in the spring, but most of the characters I'd like to dress as have coats, or a similar layered style that's way too warm for Spring. Wish I had thought to do one of those cosplays when the convention was in April this year.

I've been tempted to go to Katsucon, which is local to me, and in winter. It would allow for some interesting costume options, and make layering more tolerable. But I have no desire to drive in a potential blizzard in this area - I seem to remember one of our great storms in recent years overlapping with the convention.


Tonight I started stitching the bias tape around the bodice of my Pinkie Pie costume. By hand. Because I can't fit the boned corsety thing through my poor sewing machine. Over about an hour, I managed to do 5 inches worth of stitches, about 3/4 of the way up the back edge.

And then, like the lunatic I am, I decided I'll mask the edge of the bias tape with a rope of embroidery. Yeah... if I'm lucky, I'll actually finish this thing before Dragon*Con next year.

My friend helped me pick an outfit of Kaito from Fairy Cube's to wear at Katsucon. The only problem is...The version is from Volume one when his hair was much shorter than it is in the later volumes.

...and I noticed he has weird bangs that crop right below his ears. So I'm going to need a whole new Kaito wig. Oh friggin' joy DX

Well, that was about two hours of my life sacrificed for cosplay. Apparently giving into my right side of my brain's incessant demands that I cosplay Red from OuaT has caused me to hunt down and print off pattern lineart, screenshots and photograph items I already own that will work for this costume, before glueing them into a new 5 subject notebook.

Why I am never this organized in everything else in my life, I will never know. At least I can carry this with me, for when I see x fabric on sale for x costume I can purchase it, because I will have all the quantities on hand regardless if I am actively looking.

The only question remains as to the identity of the remaining 4 tabs in the book.

@bluedragonx - Noted. Thanks for the heads up.

Went through my old clothes to weed out the ones I want to donate and I found a pretty red sparkly tank top and a black furry vest. Huh, wasn't expecting that. I kept them cause I might be able to use them for a gijinka or something.

Almost. Done. Just some touch-ups.

This commission took SO MUCH LONGER than I expected. But I'm happy because my customer is happy. :3

Found a new Kaito wig online. Hopefully I'll be able to get it from the website's booth at Anime USA so my friend can style it.

Now I'm really excited to cosplay Kaito again.
