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.

Okay... so it's at least looking like a dress now. Bad news is I can't find my zipper. Nor do I have an invisible zipper foot for my machine. So, fabricland tomorrow to pick up a new zipper, because after tearing the house apart and finding nothing, I figure I will gladly spend the $3 for the peace of mind.

The invisible zipper foot on the other hand....I'll have to special order one for the future, but for the moment I am S.O.L. Can one install an invisible zipper with a standerd zipper foot? Especially when one has never installed even a normal zipper before?

So. One of my cosplay members found this xxxHolic artbook photo and casually said, "That's so pretty! I'd be Himawari if you guys did this cosplay!"

Cue me, a Watanuki cosplayer, hearing that I could have my very own Himawari, perking up immediately. I asked Eau de Decus if he would be interested in another Yuuko cosplay, to which he replied, "Like you even have to ask."

So now this is planned for Fanime. :3

According to my sewing book, no, you can't put an invisible one in with a normal zipper foot. You can hand-stitch an invisible zipper in, however.

Pretty pleased that I finally have a good full-body shot of Pinkie Pie! The dress is pinned up a bit so that I'd be able to walk and hold my bag and not have to keep picking up my dress (it's extra long to accommodate the heels I have available to switch out for shoots), but you can hardly tell. Yay!

Discussed BRS Beast with my Strength a bit and we agreed that perhaps pleather would not be the best fabric to work with, so I'll be taking that back to Joann's tomorrow in favor of some different stuff. Ah well. I'm sure the other fabric we have in mind will be cheaper and easier to work with in addition to looking better in the end. c:

Yay, congrats on the Full Body! Your Pinkie Pie looks extra awesome!

That reminds me that some of my cosplays don't have full body photos. 8D I should really get to it. >> Well, we'll see. Too busy with gathering materials for new cosplays. >>

We actually have one! He just kind of listened to us planning this without saying much. We asked his opinion and he just said, "Sure, whatever."

Pretty much what we expected.
