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. >.>

Well it looks like I'm not going to Clarksville Daycon later on today.
Man, this week..this entire MONTH has been filled with disappointments.
And two out of the three events were due to my mother being...difficult.
The only thing that made this day feasible is that I got eyelashes and fangs for Vriska at Party City.

Found out that my out-of-stock Faust VIII wig that I was so upset about is coming back in November. That's a pleasant surprise since I wasn't expecting it to come back in Stock until Christmas.

Been looking at lace trims on ebay. I found this one, this one, and this one. I'm leaning towards the second to make the border out of for the shawl but would it fit though... I stink at the whole picturing it in my head thing.

And I've been listening to Life Reset Button by Gumi a lot lately. >_> I just need an orange hoodie to make that cosplay...

About to toss Quorra's undershirt fabric in the wash so I can start today... the stuff I found will work great for the all-black portions, but I'm pretty bummed that I couldn't afford/find a similar substitute for the hexagon print on her sleeve-tops and chest. Soon as I have the money, I'm doing so.

-_- So apparently my bank is being a total (insert word of choice here) and didn't notify me of this whole 'weekend purchases won't be processed until the next business day' thing. WTF? Now I'm -$8 and won't be able to get my new wig, since that'll put my balance at like $16, and not $20. -_-

Meanwhile, gonna try and finish the torso piece of chainmail today. Been putting it off for too long.

So. Suddenly going to MileHiCon next month. That brings my total cons for the year up to... 6? And just in the state of CO? Plus Denver County Fair, which involved dressing up and promoting steampunk for 3 days. Stick a fork in me, I'm done. No new costumes for this one-- I'm even thinking about dressing as Tony Stark for my stemapunk science panel. Because SCIENCE.

I feel way more awesome than I should for being friends with a semi-well-known cosplayer.

Found out that Phi Brain is getting an S3! *screams around in fangirl-ness* This made me realize that I have everything to do a Nonoha cosplay from the show. I would need to see if I can get my old Minako wig to look like her hair but it shouldn't be difficult. I don't know if it would be a con cosplay though since Phi Brain is obscure and doesn't have a huge fanbase.

Also, I ended up buying a pair of striped colored socks yesterday to turn into arm warmers for Marie. It's not really exact but it has the stripes and I got it for cheaper than what it would be on sockdreams so I'm not complaining. ^_^

I want to start making stilts for my next cosplay, but WHY OH GOD WHY my dad has to make this thing so difficult by talking about some kind of calculations of capacity? Perhaps it all is so damn difficult that they need to be done. And I can't do calculations.

Man, doing all of these designs is rough, and even after this they'll still probably need some revision, especially with my Rarity also doing her own designs for each costume (to give ourselves a broad range of ideas to work with.) I can't wait to finalize these with the group and move on to actual construction. @A@; I've only gotten two finished with one in progress and then after that one I still have 7 more designs to do. The joys of having a big group. =3= But at least this is fun!

Oh my lord, I also never realized how easily some UtaPri cosplays could be done. Problem with that is, if I want to do Syo without buying another wig, I have to keep my hair pretty short (well, depending on how it looks when it gets longer), and I would want to do a more obscure version I'm not sure if anybody will recognize.
And Tokiya I might have a wig for, but I'm afraid of being a short chubby Tokiya. I'm getting to the point where accuracy > how much I like the design, as I'm trying to build my confidence. And again, I would want to do a more obscure version.
Cosplay, since when did you get all these technicalities?!

Ugh, not too impressed with the person that's sending me my boots so far. Let's hope the product is actually nice though.
