Why am I not informed of these things!? I wonder if I should make a trip on Friday to Joanns. I also want to pick up some costume pleather since it's on sale for 50% off. It's like the world is telling me to cosplay Mafuyu's Maria outfit. Heck, I really wanted to take pictures in that outfit and whatever.

Although now that I'm gathering ref images, it doesn't really look like pleather to me...and she's wearing really high heels...

Eeee, Arda put up a wig bang cutting tutorial on youtube and I finally know why mine looked so crappy (never knew you had to cut upwards as well as across) and when I tested it out on my wig it looked a bit better already!

My Saber cosplay is just so not working right! ARUGEbvc knmldvmsc *facesmash* I'm so fustrated.

The back pieces to the bodice are to big on the blue top. BY THREE INCHES! How did I manage to do that!? This is after I took in my white dress, a bit sloppy I admit but it'd last for what I need it for this weekend. On top of that I still haven't gotten my sleeves together.

Also, I have a midterm tomorrow. T_T After which, I will run home to sew and probably not sleep for class on Friday before running to Hexxp. Not sleep on Friday and Saturday night ether to get this done. Then during my 4 1/2 hour break on monday I shall sleep in the library probably.... >.>

Urgh, I really need a job.
My mom told me she isn't helping me with financial stuff for my cosplaying anymore.
I don't really know what to do now.. =/

..I'm actually very glad I got a bit depressed and ranted all my thoughts about the Kuro cosplayers. I was really surprised I'm not the only one that feels major pressure and a sense of utter elitism within the community, and it helped me rationalize not cosplaying Ciel, at least for now. To put it in basic terms, you either only get noticed if you look amazing or are in a group. If you are neither, you're kind of seen as lower, at least in my opinion.
It's just a crapton of stress and money that I don't think I would be happy with, so I'm putting it off until later. Hopefully I'll get to redo my baby sometime down the line though.

Been thinking about which of North Italy's outfits I should get to go with the wig I bought...Recently was reminded of the "color police" meme so maybe I'll try and do the Green Police outfit.

I am completely broke, all I can do is spend my time obsessing over how im going to modify patterns and make my cosplay until I can get fabric

in a way its not so bad, Its better to figure things out beforehand then to do it on the spot
im a terrible culprit of the "cut now, think later" mentality

While going through all of my storage stuff and deciding what to get rid of and what to keep, I found a hat that was used for an old costume (no longer in use) that I can use to make a pattern for Kotetsu's hat. It's not perfect, but I have no better use for it than to cut it up and recycle the thick interfacing of the rim, and it'll be easy enough to modify.

Getting really annoyed with this.

It's been a month since I've bought this wig from this person and I'm starting to think I was scammed. I emailed, everything. I have yet to receive the wig. I am out 15 dollars for this thing.

Now I need to come up with money for a new wig. I'm already a broke college student as it is.

Fall quarter + post-season baseball = no time for cosplay

Also realizing that I have to teach night lab on Halloween, so no shenanigans for me. At least my students have to suffer with me (mwuaha).

I did it. I ordered a wig for my G.I.R.s. I decided I had enough to get it and I think it'll really look good. I figure the Jett from Arda in Silver will be a good start. Once it arrives, I'll sit down and start using the silver Sharpies on it to finish it off. I can't wait! If only there were another reason to dress up for Halloween....
