My mom is having someone who works at the theatre with her help make my Russia coat, but the problem is she's trying to make the fabric a darker brown than what I need ; ~ ; I'm very happy about the help, it's just that she has the theatre mentality of "if it's close enough no one will care" and not the cosplayer "I would like to be accurate to the character" mentality. I also would be SO not happy if Russia's coat was a dark brown and not the light beige that it is... I'm kinda stressing out about it, since I want this to be a REALLY good cosplay. Russia's my favourite character, and I want this to be the cosplay I'm super proud of and if the coat was dark brown it'd kinda kill me a bit on the inside.

Also there's this one girl I kinda hate that thinks she's best friends with me and thinks that I'm gonna take her to the con with me >.<

I just realized that I forgot to upload the few pictures I got from Otakon on here. Oops. I'll work on that.
I was about to head out to get the majority of my fabric since I have a long weekend without much more than auditions going on but the dance store was closing and I realized most of my coupons are for Sunday. So I guess I'll be buying stuff for my Halloween costume on Sunday.
But I'm done pleating and have cut out the panty. Since I only have a few alterations to make on the panty, this should be a bit easier. The only alterations I have to make are to make it smaller, so it shouldn't be an issue. I don't think.

Drew out the final emblem thing along with about half of the border design. I'm really hoping that I'll be able to freehand the rest of them since I stopped drawing it on cause it was so boring. Plus I only had half a sheet worth of design and had to keep moving it. I really wish I brought the embroidery supplies back with me so I can get started on that to see if I'm able to do it. >_<

Homura costume is heeeerrreee~!

And it looks damn good for the $80 I paid for it. Took 3 weeks total to arrive from the day I ordered it.

Things I need to fix:
How the insanely high collar fits
Mod the skirt so it sits lower and looser so I flash less people...
Replace the ridiculously obvious zippers and their bright shiny pull tabs with ones that blend in more. A lot more.

Things I need to do to complete the costume:
Buy and mod a headband
Figure out the tights


I... might make tights. Out of lycra or something. Because my other option is screenprinting the purple diamond designs onto tights while I'm wearing them, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. On the other hand, I'm not sure how I feel about sewing geometric designs onto stretchy fabric.

And I'm nixing the high heels. Because this is my "I'm going to a super small con and I want something I can flop on the floor in and derp around with friends in" costume and heels are a no go. I don't go to Aki-Con to show off my magnificent craftsmanship, I go to have a good time hanging out with my friends.

Sakura-Con is for showing off, and speaking of which, I have to get a move on with that kimonooooooo. D:

Plan for tonight:

~ Send in an order and more or less say goodbye to all my moneys
~ Style at least two wigs
~ Make a list of everything my group needs to buy tomorrow when we run errands

Just looked at my Homura references again. Seems like her skirt is really that short after all.

Well then.

My new Zelos Wilder wig is so much thicker than the old one, which is great except it's taking forever to slick back the bangs.

*grumbles* Why does the whole family need to go to Atlantic City. I wanted to work on Pascal's straps today and make the pattern for Saber's one greave. Guess I'll just coat the Sakuya feathers with more glue/modge podge.

Question Con Preperation

I couldn't see a thread about cons, I was just wondering what all people take with you. I know you take your costumes, make-up, wigs, wig care, but is there anything else you wouldn't normally think of? Like food/water etc.

Has it really been 6 years since I crossplayed Dark Mousy? O_O Yes. Yes it has. I made this realization when my daughter picked up a black feather that had fallen off my wings that I used for my costume. I would like to one day re-do that costume. Make it much better.
