Lol, found my baby blue color fabric today at a Wal-mart, but it was sort of late at night and no one was around to cut it for me :/ I ended up just leaving it, but I'll eventually get it. I have until November anyways

It's just that I don't know where to put any of my random cosplay related progress and babbling. And I don't want a fanpage because I like having actual friends and getting notifications when people comment on things I comment on and such.
Aw, I'm sorry! Our group had that happen about a year ago. D: We started a fanpage, mostly because FB is rather nice for cosplay ramblings that don't always fit here or on dA. I'd recommend getting a fanpage - it's not really about "omg i'm an interwebz celebrity" so much as an outlet for direct interaction with fans of the same medium.

It really is worth it for the most part - at least in our opinion. Just a pain to get it going after an account is shut down. If you have an iPhone, there is a separate app for Facebook Pages, which is a really easy mobile option to keep your personal and page accounts separate. It might be the same for Android users, but I'm not sure.

In any case, good luck! :3

VERY helpful, thanks, I'm looking for a cheap pair of red frames for my Rarity cosplay!

Now... where does one find a good rainbow wig? OTL There's this one that I've seen that is short hair with some black in it as well, but I can't seem to find it online anywhere. Ffffffffffuuuu...
The Five Wits has a full short rainbow wig, no black in it like Arda's.

Thanks! I'm strongly considering making a page just because that was the second time and I like facebook......I'm just not a fan (pun intended) of making a fanpage because like having "friends."
Or--let me ask you this--what's the difference between having an account and a page? I liked having all these random people on my newsfeed and getting notifications when people comment on other people's statuses that I had also commented on. Aside from the fact that I as well as others said that having a fanpage feels a little attention-whore-ish...

I totally agree with the "attention-whore" feel that a fanpage can carry, but really, I feel that it's rather evolved beyond that - mostly because Facebook hasn't given a cosplayer account any other option. I was a bit wary at first, but I've learned that a fanpage is - in my opinion, of course - a pretty useful tool.

A fanpage is very similar to a regular account, except the major difference of letting people "like" your page instead of friending you. You're still able to interact with those who interact with you, as well as pages that your page likes. I find that a lot of the people my group interacted with are still very active with the fanpage, so I'm still able to keep up with con friends. Fanpages also allow you to "like" back other fanpages, so your feed can be as narrowly cosplay or as personally wide as you'd like.

I love dA, Coscom, and Facebook for very different reasons, but I find that FB allows for a more casual interaction for day-to-day posts.

Wow...I haven't been on here for quite a while!

Just got my costume about two weeks ago, but the tie...I have to find a better tie for my cosplay.
All I have left to do are the swords.

Dang it I keep forgetting about Five Wits, thank you! xD But I feel like the one Arda has would suit my design better; how does one find it though? I can't see it on their site anywhere. OTL

EDIT: Oh pfff found it wow I feel silly. Noooooo why is it out of stoooooooock?! OTL

On the topic of fb, dA and such - today I deleted my deviantart account and it feels wonderful. My interest in cosplay in going down the drain, especially because 1) I no longer have many options for photoshoots and 2) I simply cannot find any characters that I want to cosplay.

But seeing all these fab cosplayers on dA constantly working was giving me all these feeling of not keeping up with the speed that cosplay in Denmark is growing with so I decided to let go. I was much happier when I had just started cosplaying anyway

Slowly starting to get back into making things but then again school and filming is taking up so much of my time. But at least filming is almost done....

Cannot believe I got my smartgun just not looking forward to buying the rig for it. Grrr need to save money up for that.

It seems like there are more and more people planning Loveless groups and such. My former roommate already has long dark blonde hair so I asked her to be my Soubi. It just sucks that she won't be able to go with me to Kollision Con.

I need to stop watching Anime for a little while and just focus on the two cosplays I plan on doing for Kollision. I got talked into doing Aya Hoshino for Kollision Con. Then my other friend wants me to be the Panty to her Stocking.

I only have so much moneys to spend before I am broke and then I can't go.

Back from vacation (which was awesome). Promptly smacked in the face by work deadlines (hello, OT) and possible new termite infestation at home (get to call the pest guys today, ugh). Suspect universe of conspiring against me getting anything done on cosplay. T___________________T And I need to work on Therese for AV too, damn it.

Well, at least according to a lot of people on dA, it seems I did a good job on my G.I.R. goggles. I just hope they work well while in costume.

Seriously. >_< I'm still planning Ophelia right now. What the heck brain? Can't you focus on the cosplays that need attention right now? Like Pascal who still needs pretty much everything? I relented with possibility cosplaying Kyouko if I find a turquoise jacket that works for her.

I think I'll just make Marie's accessories today...
