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.

Oh that's a pretty design! Can't wait to see it!

I just remembered I have some PVC pipe left over from making my first naginata. I could totally use it for Ophelia's spear. I'm wondering if I should make it detachable or not. It would be easier to carry around if it was but still....

Hm. That's going to take a while. But if it must be done....

...unless I can use an open toe free floating foot and drop my feed dogs.
... or velcro.

*invisions 22 inches of hot velcro love*
*shudders*

Thank you! It was actually kind of a pet peeve that I didn't have a full body photo considering that just as much effort went into to the bottom half of the dress as the top half. There's some other details (bows/sashes) that aren't exactly showing, but beggars can't be choosers and it's hard to really photograph the back of the dress anyway. xD;

So I spent the day in con meetings, and subsequently freaking out about my NDK cosplays. What am I doing instead of being producting and actually WORKING on these costumes? Faffing about on these forums.

...And that's when I decided that I'm going to cosplay Zexion. I don't...I don't even know.
I just ordered the wig and I know it's probably not going to be here come AWA time (since it's in less than 19 days and if it DID come in time, I would be extremely surprised)
So that's why I'm probably going to debut him at Anime Blast Chattanooga.
