Soo, just ordered my wig for Porrim, and since I've finished making the dress and horns, all I have to still is buy the fangs, contact lenses and piercings.

And I think I'll shorten the shirt I got for Mukuro, even though it is an S. Surprising it's so big, as I'm actually rather tall.
But I am soo looking forward to finally wearing him! x3

Gold trim came in. *_* So pretty but I can't attach it onto the shawl cause I don't have my fray check here. >_> I'm also a bit worried by the amount. It doesn't look like it is 3 yards....

I've finally ordered some shoe lifts. I feel that I really do need them for Garry, and they'll come in handy when I cosplay Gary (since my Ash is actually an inch taller than me...) and, of course, Thor.

I actually had a horrible moment of pre-cosplay doubts last night regarding Garry where I nearly cancelled the order for the wig and blue rose. Huffff. I got over it though ; n;

Everything is a waiting game or a "Will I have enough money?"

Waiting on Ears, Jacket and Wig this week. I swear it feels like it's been forever since I purchased the wig.

I will now have extra cash to finish buying the rest of my stuff for Ritsuka and hopefully get my hair done for Aya. Hair needs to grow longer!

Sewing is so hard. And expensive. ;_; I'm practicing by sewing normal things before I try sewing more cosplay stuff but I don't think I'm cut out to do it. I won't get better if I don't practice, though... oh well.

I've had my mind set on being Kotone and I already bought a little fabric for it but then I thought about how cool it'd be to be Silver or Green or Touya or Touko or something because I love pretty much all of the Pokemon characters. And then I decided I want to be Nano Shinonome and Kyou Fujibayashi but I guess those can wait until next year, unless I can find someone selling a used costume for 40$ or less.

Next year I also plan on being Natsuki Usami. I wonder if my costume will be recognizable enough, and I'm pretty short... I have an old fishing rod somewhere that I can unstring and bring as a prop. Perhaps I could buy a blue apron and iron-on an H. I have no idea how I'll make a blue suit jacket, I'll probably pass on that. OH, and by then I'll have new glasses because I'm overdue for an upgrade, so I'm going to have Natsuki glasses for the next 2-4 years. -u-

Urghh all of these characters would normally be in cosplay groups. I barely talked to anyone last year and stuck with my 2 friends I came with, but next year one will be cosplaying Hetalia and the other won't be cosplaying at all. I hope I'll make some friends this time. ;v;

So after sawing through the heels of the boots I'm going to be using to make Long-Fall Boots from Portal2 and showering to get the smell of molten acrylic AKA hellfeces off my skin...

How the butt am I supposed to feasibly support the springs on this thing without said supports being A) garishly visible to the point of looking non-canon, or B) tearing upwards when any amount of weight is put on them and giving me involuntary knee implants from Portal1?

Mysteries.

I had a productive cosplay day today! I got Fabric and notions for Faust's pants and shirt...thing. I was going to do the pants today but my friend's sewing machine had a bitch fit and I only got one side of one of the blue stripey-things sewed. At least I have the fabric now though.

Duke's vest is pretty much done though. I just have to cut the collar off the red dress shirt I'm making it out of

Bought my first sewing machine today! Wee!

Going to spend the evening reading the manual/yelling at post-season baseball. (:

Starting to gather material and patterns for my Halloween costume. Found beautiful goldish red taffeta at Joann's for 50% off. 2 yards cost me $6. And Simplicity patterns are $0.99 so I'm stocking up on those. I will be making a mock up of my cape to make sure I know how much more fabric I need, but it will probably be 2 yards or so...
I'll probably make my crown in the next couple of days. And a modified pattern for my dress...
All I have to do is borrow my friend's sewing machine. First self made costume in seven years. I'm a little nervous!

Edit: Congrats Kell! I look forward to hearing about your sewing adventures and I will share mine!

Yay! I have a lot of scrap fabric lying around, so it will be sacrificed to the cause.

I've been watching MLP on Netflix for a few weeks with the wifey, and she's on a big-time pony kick. She's got a couple of shirts and toys and such. She also mentioned she'd like a Twilight Sparkle wig, so I got it for her as a present. She's kind of shy and I never thought I would get her to cosplay (she doesn't even dress up for Halloween) but I think she might actually do a Twilight Sparkle cosplay for the next con! So excited to help her...

I am expecting the size and race related comments from my first con will be bad and it scares me everyday since I've never had to take much judgement since I tended to hide behind a video game avatar like in WOW or second life. My cosplays are not the best I know and I look awful in them but I just hope to have alittle fun.
