Wait, WHAT.

Ahaha...suggestive.

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...

Arda should have a restock coming in soon? A while back I think it was mentioned that items would be re-stocked before the Sept. sale, and that's next weekend.

I'm older than almost all cosplayers here in my hometown and sometimes feel old to start, but I don't want to give up!

I saw the pictures on your Facebook..it's so amazing~ nwn I'm jealous of your skills..

Also, something I think you guys need to see: Link I could rant for ages about this, but you really just need to go read it yourself.

Also, this one costume keeps haunting me. It's one that I'll want to do really badly, then I'll forget about it for a while, then I'll want to do it again. I want to do it just so this voice in my head will shut up ;3;

Ugh. That's just...ugh. I cannot think of any words to describe how mad that makes me.

And what's the cosplay you want to do? *is curious* XD

Instead of working on Marie, I ended up starting Saber's short sword as well as the leg armor. The sword I only have the blade cut out and I guess I'll paper mache it when I visit home next time. Still need to figure out how I'm going to tackle the hilt...

As for the leg armor, I got the craft foam pieces shaped and coated a layer of modge podge on the back. I'm hoping it will dry fast enough that I will be able to coat the back and front a couple more times before I head back to school tomorrow.

I know. She has been doing everything in her power to try to keep this from getting so out of control, too, and she sounds so disappointed asking for donations ;w; If my parents wouldn't just be like "Why're you giving some stranger money? Scam :/" I would donate for her. I hate that she has to start all over, if at all, only due to her parents' ignorance, too. >;/

It's mostly Vocaloid..like, they don't even go away, they just switch out XD One month I want to do Kaito...the next Piko..xDD Right now it's Aoki Lapis...her designs are the most beautiful thing *w* http://s1167.photobucket.com/albums/...fitCollage.jpg

Can't wait for this weekend- buying the stuff for Magnus' wig this weekend during Arda's super epic giant sale. That should hold me up until my birthday!

Also, does anyone have any idea of how much it generally costs to ship a pigtail wig?

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.
Thanks! I think I might make a fanpage. Or something. I'm a little hesitant. But maybe if I just don't have a cosplay facebook I might spend less time procrastinating on homework and such. And then my friends were telling me to get a tumblr.....
I'll just keep thinking on it.

I find it kind of funny that the only thing keeping me from making a fanpage is worrying about not being able to change the name if I wanted to...
