About half-way done with sewing the long trim onto the shawl. Also went to the Halloween store and picked up a king's crown. Now just need to make my horns. Errr buy supplies to make it first. XD

Managed to cut myself. ...Least I managed to avoid getting it on the white fabric I was working with at the time I suppose...

Hmmm, I've got a decent amount of a really nice glossy stretch suiting leftover from Quorra's undertop. Maybe I'll make a slinky tunic-shirt out of it. And if I don't have enough for that, maybe a skirt I could wear to work.

*PHEW* I've got the boning into Miku's bodice. It should be a lot easier from here on out.

Ooh! What version of Miku are you doing?

On my end, I think I've got a costume for Momocon planned out. While I'm a bit sad Ciel didn't work out, I think I've got a much cooler (and cheaper), nice alternative.
Now, I'm really into Inu x Boku right now, and I know I have to cosplay it. Originally, I wanted to cosplay Ririchiyo, as I really love her story and she's pretty adorable. I will probably do her later since all I would need is a wig, but I got a really great idea for Karuta randomly today.
Most people either do her fanservice-y outfits or just have a lollipop or something for her, but since it's Halloween time, I figured I'd have the skeleton that comes with her 'demon' self:

While I certainly won't have anything that huge, it'd be cool to have a large skeleton to carry around with it. I'm hoping I can find something big enough that I can cut off the bottom half and just alter it so I could fit inside the ribcage and carry it over my shoulder, but since I don't know how managable that would be, I may just cut off the lower half of one and carry it around on my side.
Not all that epic, but I can't remember the biggest fake skeleton I've seen. I will go hunting at a few stores first, though.

I'm hoping to get it done for NebrasKon. :fingers crossed: I also want to do Snow Miku but it's going to be awhile before I start that one.

Since the Magnet version is curly the twintails are shorter making it easier to manage.

I'm in the process of drilling my horns for Aradia, which makes me really nervous! Thank god my mom is doing it, because I would've ruined my horns ages ago without her!

But my Aradia is almost done! It's the first costume I've done without buying it from another person/site! It makes me really proud of myself, because everything actually looks good! Minus my cracked horns, but I really like everything else!

Hahaha. Nice imagery! XD And that happens to me as well. I recently lost a shirt that would have been almost perfect. But the other day, I realized I have almost everything to cosplay a cowboy version of Fem!America from hetalia. So yay!

It's that time again where an event is coming up and I'm stressing out because I always leave everything until last minute... augh, I even had to drop one of my plans and I'm still stressing out over just the one.

Trying to finish my Mituna cosplay for London Expo, it doesn't really help that the closest to a canon full body shot I have is this:


I thought the helmet and horns would give me most troubles but it's not those that are giving me the most trouble. Shades of yellow are stressing me out. I was going with a more accurate yellow like the one in the picture buuut it seems most cosplayers just go with a yellow because that yellow is hard as heck to find (I have gloves in the colour, found some paint that will work but I can't find any material close enough).

It doesn't really help that I sorta have troubles when it comes to recognising colours :/

I agree. The size requirements can really turn a good picture awkward Dx

I think that any shade of yellow you can find that's sorta close will work, especially at the last minute.
I don't think anyone will come up to you and go "Oh my god, that is TOTALLY not the right yellow."
They will go "Oh my god, Mituna!" And not notice or care :3
