Arda always has sales right after I buy from them.

Discovered I can wriggle in and out of my Kohaku vest without unbuttoning it. This is good, I don't have to cut the overlapping trim I did.

It's easier to get into than out of though, but I think it'll be easier when I have binding on XD

Sorry for the double post, but this needed to be separate from my previous post.

I think the universe is telling me not to cosplay Faust VIII. I went to order my wig from Arda during their sale. I had to wait until my dad got home and had some time to relax, and when we went on the website, the wig I was going to get for Faust had sold out already, and they just restocked this week DX DX DX

Between this and the fact that I bought a wig for Faust before that just proved un-spikeable...It's really disheartening. Especially since I've been reading a ton of Shaman King lately to psych myself up for getting my Faust wig I know it seems silly to be this upset over an out-of-stock wig (or so my dad says) but I'm really upset.

Ahh D: I hate when life tries to send signals like that q-q Don't worry, if it's really meant to be, something will fall into place! (This sounds like I'm giving you relationship advice...well, basically, cosplay is one of the cruelest lovers you can have...)

On my end, I am excited. I didn't realize how easily I can cosplay from Persona 3 now that I have a fake gun to mold into an Evoker. Though I still need to ask gf about the cosplays we were going to do together...since I'm not sure if I can buy her Lizzie wig for her or not. I hope I can somehow, that's a couple cosplay I've always (secretly) wanted to do. And then Garry would be nice, once I find someone to make the coat for me, though I dunno if she's still doing Ib or not. Then there's still Aoki, and now I'm really fond of IA's design...
TOO MANY COSPLAYS, SO LITTLE EVERYTHING QnQ

Just started watching Eden of the East again and now I really wanna cosplay as Saki! Should be fairly simple. I'm sure I can find most of her clothes in a thrift store x3 Thrift store here I come!

XD Yes, yes it is. Why cruel world why?

My nana said when the wig comes back in stock though, I can get it on her, so that's nice. And I'm going to get my Lab coat probably next week

I'm mostly upset that I can't win the bet I had with my friend that if I come to school on Halloween as Faust, he'd write One Direction a fan letter. DX Oh well, maybe for spirit week >) This cosplay is happening, no matter what. I've already invested money and time into buying a skeleton and making a scythe, so it is happening eventually.

Welp, my RPG-themed MLP group is still in the design phase. My Rarity and I are currently collaborating on designs for each and every one of us in an attempt to figure out a cohesive, "group" look, since having everyone working individually hasn't been going particularly well. And since our group has been growing a bit, that means 10 designs to do. @A@; Rrrgh... And I have prints to work on for Sakura Con, too...

*inserts persona comment as we already talked about this on fb but I need to make a comment* I approve! XD Also I love IA's design. I just wish her hair wasn't that weird white/blond/pink color. I don't think my skin tone would work well with that light of a color.

The brain bun I bought from Arda already shipped. 0_0. Wow. I knew they were fast but...that was FAST! I also finished the middle design on the shawl. Only the border left! Let's do this! Or start this...

Probably not. Thankfully I am ghostly pale, so light blonde looks fine on me xD I seriously had her hair color (and length) when I was young.
Besides, I'd just go with a light blonde when cosplaying her. The white just looks odd, and the pinkish usually clashes horribly with a cosplayer's skin tone or her skirt.

Almost done with the bias tape on Kohaku's vest. I've gotten the weird rectangle-looking thing around the buttons done, so I just need to do the other side of the collar and along the bottom. Then that'll be one less thing I have to do for this cosplay, and I'm getting my fake guns hopefully next week.

Yay! I finally went shopping and bought most of what I need. I'm still a little bummed Joann Fabrics didn't have the lame', because the only place I've found what I needed is Etsy, where it's going to be $12 to ship a few yards of the flimsiest fabric EVER.

There's a joke here that I'm not getting. XD

*throws shawl and other embroidery thing across the room* This border is not working. It is not working at all. I cannot get the lines right and it looks stupid and argh! I hate it. I even edited it a bit to see if I could do an altered version of it but ugh. It looks like crap. >_< I wanted to do the whole shawl by hand with embroidery but this is not working. I think I'll just sleep on it and try again tomorrow but the way it is going, it looks like I'm going to need to find some trim that will work.

A brain bun or braid bun? Unless you actually meant brain. In which case.......don't mind me.

Speaking of braids, I just finished playing with my Princess Tutu wig. I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Blagh, busy weekend coming up. I really need to keep on going with Rarity's dress, but I don't think I'll be able to this weekend. Blagh... maybe I can fix up the pattern, at least.

Also been on a Korra kick. It doesn't help that I have been reading a lot of fanfiction. I now find myself in a place where I'd love to cosplay one of the Korra characters but have no idea who. I mean, I would love to do a random Chi Blocker, but a costume like that might just give me heatstroke. >.>
