I'm soo close to finishing Eternal Sailor Moon. I'm happy with the results, so far!

Gaah the con is next month, so damn excited! I've prepared a lot for this, and for once, I'm not panicking!

I'm assuming you're talking about Ochiba-con. I haven't decided whether to go or not.

So put out the awful truth regarding dirt-poor finances, how I've sold most things I love just so I can afford cosplay costumes and the editor cut all those parts out. :| I guess people just want to live in the fabricated reality when it comes to some people's bummer lifestyles.
That is just rude. There are so many more of us out there who go broke for cosplay than the others. They should have left that in. It's just as important.


Last night I listened to this little voice that introduced itself as sanity. Right now I'm taking 3 classes in the evenings on top of work. I figure this is probably going to be standard for the next two years. And considering, at least for me, work and classes are more important than costumes. I've decided to just set Ten's blue suit aside until I can afford to have it properly made. I've got my Fangirl for next year, so I'll be good for the anniversary. I'm a little sad because I really want to get that suit done, but I want to have it done properly. Now I need to figure out what, if anything, is going to replace it.

Holy crap, I just made myself a Millennium eye out of a bottle cap and some clay. Granted it it's the wrong color since I didn't have any gold clay and I used a soda bottle cap so it juts way out from my face, but I did it more to see if it was actually possible and it is!

Maybe with a smaller bottle cap, I may have actually found a way to make this crazy thing...getting it to stay on my face though, that'll be the hard part.

How to look like a crazy person: go to Walmart at 10pm and only buy embroidery floss and cat food. I'm stuck in con meetings tomorrow and didn't realize that I was out of embroidery floss until tonight. The Sabriel nightmares have already began. I'm working on that surcoat whenever I'm sitting.

It's my birthday!!!! I'm actually really happy about that this year even though I usually hate birthdays just because I am so in love with where I am physically, emotionally, and mentally =D I have such amazing friends, am going to the perfect school for me, and am generally just so incredibly happy. Oh and I have awesome multicolored tips in my hair!! SO much happy yayness!

On a cosplay note, I really want to be working on my next cosplay right now to start off the year right, but I should really just go to bed! We will see how I decide =D

Agreed. And the thing is I probably wouldn't have mentioned it in the first place, but I did because I wanted to tell the other side of what it's like being short-budgeted and being a cosplayer. For whatever reason the guy ended up cutting out that part of the footage. The interview in general was meant to be light hearted, so maybe it was just too much of a bummer. I dunno.

Out of boredom I looked up different brocade fabrics that I could possibly use for Ophelia and dang, the fabrics are expensive. 0_0. Like...$15 a yard. Dang. Unless I can find at least, one or two of the colors I need for cheaper, it looks like this cosplay might not end up happening. >_>

Sometimes being over-inspired is as bad as not feeling any motivation - I want to work on so many projects and I haven't yet bought material for any of them because of my indecisiveness! Eventually I'll have to make a choice, but it's so difficult.

I'm officially finished the Noroi/Curse song. I'm pretty happy with it, but I think it could have sounded a bit better =/ Oh well.
So with that done, I'm thinking that on the 14th I can start working on Rin's dress, since I have a P.A day. (A P.A day on the second week of school already? SWEEEEET!)
I'd like to finish Rin's dress early, anyway.

Sooooo.... Guess who burned a toonie sized hole through the lining of her dress? Me! Me!
Do you know how fast acetate lining melts? FAST. REALLY FAST.

But did I get angry? Well, yes. But did I get violent and flip the ironing board over and swear to all the gods of the known universe? No. I did not. I merely applied a terrible patch to it and then found a bag of potato chips and a soft couch to sulk upon.

I like potato chips.

It's amazing. I come home from Dragon*Con and get completely inspired. Last night I sat down and straightened out my Miho wig. I love Arda! Just my little straightener and patience and it's completely straight. I just have to do a little trimming and teasing and it will be ready to go. So happy right now!

Today I sat down and painted the pocket of GIR's hoodie, got the first layer of DON'T PANIC on the cover of my Guide. I also ordered GIR's goggles, which should arrive on Wednesday. Yay! Tonight I'm going to work on layer two and maybe get some more work done on Miho's wig.

Picked up some fabric for Zelos' pants, and then found the separates for Hatori Sohma.

Should also get my group's Sac Anime photos up soon.
