So I'm not sure if I should get the wig and sacrifice a couple of inches in the hair-accuracy department, or get an ash-blonde wig that's the right length, and then tint it myself with sharpies....and sharpie dying is hard.
I'd go with the wig. I don't think so many are going to notice that the wig is a bit too short.. and even if someone did they would probably just assume you wanted to save yourself from the tangling hell that comes with long wigs.

Just finished cutting out my stencils for my Homura tights. Not sure my finger is supposed to bend like this. .-.

Kollision Con is a month from tomorrow. My wig isn't here yet and I'm getting really irritated.

As crazy as it sounds. I'm already planning cosplays for 2014. I have the two set I am doing for next year.

That's what I was leaning towards doing, it's just easier this way

Darn! The dress has disappeared! Sigh, oh well, guess that just means I have to go out and buy fabric for Mirajane's dress. Shoot, that fabric would've worked really well too. :P

If you want something simple yet cute and adorable try dressing kigurumi style. You will guaranteed get loveable hugs wearing this i recently bought the wolf kigu. But you can get characters like pikachu and totoro! just visit the link below to check it out!

My Garry wig came! I'm actually pretty damn happy with it. It's a tad small, but that's what you get when you buy from Taobao sellers via eBay, and I expected it to be anyway. It might fit better when I've flattened my hair more effectively rather than just bunging a wig cap on and calling it a day. Other than that, I'm super happy!

I'm gonna do a makeup test soon arghhhhhhh how makeup work

TL;DR of my life:

Cosplay is the most stressful but amazing thing ever.

I found a great trench coat for the 10th Doctor at Saver's today for $10. I'm doing a lolita genderbend of him. Yeah, trench coats don't really fit into the lolita esthetic but I see 10 as someone who would bend the rules.

Sitting around in my tights, drying.

The diamonds on the right side are kind of derpy around the knee. They look good if I've got my knee bent, but when I stand, it's kind of obvious. Oh, well. The left side came out pretty well, though.

Found perfect fabric for Jem at Hancock- now I just need the money for it, and to see just how it would translate into the pants...as it's mildly shiny. Otherwise, it looks like I'm going to be getting it online.

Aaaaand I really hope I can make to the NYE party as Magnus. GLITTER FOR EVERYONE.

Probably the only lolita with a trench coat but not the only one with Converse. I've seen them used in casual lolita and I've seen them altered into something more lolita. BTW, I'm just going with plain hi-tops as they're easier to find, cheaper, and work into everyday clothing.

Why do I have the feeling like I was scammed out of 15 dollars?

Now I have to desperately sell my parasols to get more money to buy a new wig for Ritsuka.

This is ridiculous. Happy cosplay mood. Gone.
