Worked on Link's shield a bit, need some more expanding foam. Probs one or two cans. And I need to get some Sculpey so I can a little bit done on Jem, at the very least. And just going to wait until my next contact exam to ask about cosplay contacts- need bluer for Link, cat eye for Mag, and silver/gray for Jem. Yay!

I have the WORST posture EVER when I sew.
It's so painful, but I can't stop myself!

I always feel like that too, But when I put the whole thing on when it's completely done with make up/accessories, I feel better about what I look like in cosplay. So have hope :3

I think I've fixed nearly all the mistakes I made last night.
That is the LAST time I am going to just stick all my ruffles in a pile. That was a disaster.
I just have one piece to fix. Hopefully it doesn't take too long or I don't have to pleat a completely new one!

Oh man, pleating. e.e I have some interesting memories of pleating.

Now I just need to get through all this stupid application stuff so I'll have sewing time, sigh.

Also need to figure out when the heck I'm doing the Ren Faire because I really want to dress up with friends and get some more good photos!

Pleating memories? Do share!


Um. I cleaned my basement a few weeks ago so my friends could come over for my birthday.
Now I don't know where more than 1000 of my pins are and I kind of wanted to use them...

I know that feeling. When I hand sew, it is the worst. I tend to sit crosslegged and I don't move from that position until I'm done for the night. Which usually means a couple of hours. Always painful to move after a session.

Really excited because one of my friends said there's a chance I might be able to get a tutoring job. With $10 an hour. There's a chance I might actually have my own money. *_* So many cosplay possibilities just opened now.

So far everyone is liking my progress on my Aya cosplay. I'm so happy about that. I'm just waiting on my guy friend to do Rei with me. Two months till Kollision Con. Ugh, I hope we can get professional photos taken.

I haven't seen many girls cosplay as Aya. Hopefully my hair gets a little bit longer. It looks good the way it is but just a few more inches in two months. -Keeps her fingers crossed;

Sometimes you need an iron will to be a cosplayer. Sometimes you've just got to know when to stop buying fabric for future projects or just in case it might be handy in the future; because truly, you need to give yourself a break between projects.

So I promised myself that Hallowe'en was going to be relatively simple, and bar a few things it will be so.

And then fabricland called. They told me there was going to be a 50% off sale. Then there was a suspicious blank moment in my memory. There is now 8m of brillant red cordaroy on my couch perfect for that Red Ridiing Hood cloak I needed to make for...whatever occasion I can find an excuse for using it for. And some green material for a Link hat because...I want to make one. And some interfacing. Because I ran out. I think.

Will power, guys. I have it.

I like how at midnight I get the urge to have a photoshoot. -_- Can't you wait until I go home in about a week? It would be much easier to have a shoot then. I swear, I really think this is my coping mechanism. Do cosplay related things. So that's why I'm editing some old photos I found on my friend's pb that I haven't put up anywhere.

AWA is so close and I have so much to do to finish Roxy. Tomorrow I need to attach the sleeves and start beading and maybe dye my lace. I've never dyed anything before, kind of scary.
Then I need to attach the lace and make the ribbons and bootcovers. So much lace, so many beads, so few days left.

I can't wait to try on my Twilight Sparkle base wig. Though the extensions I bought might need need to get tinted darker with some sharpies. The wig's a bit darker than I thought so the pink and purple look a bit too pale/bright.
