None of my skirts except Kaya's underskirt would fit over my hoops, so I wound up tossing together a new one Thursday night for Friday's costume stuff at work. Sloppiest. Skirt. EVER. But my coworkers thought it looked awesome (and kept trying to figure out what I was -- Clara Barton (WTF) and an opera diva were the two I remember -- when the answer was "proving why I can't wear my costumes here"), so that helps. Still gonna rip out that hem and redo it, I think ...

And then I wore my Bordertown duds Saturday, since it was pretty comfy-casual. Lessons learned: nail glue will keep my elf ears on much better than spirit gum (which is useless for me), and I need to destroy that costume much more. I foresee sanding, bike chains, and driving over it a few more times in my future. XD

Apparently my Morigana wig has already been shipped. 0_0. Wow. That was really quick. Guess this means there's a chance I'll get it before Thanksgiving break, which is awesome since that's when I'm going to work on her dress.

Because of Stupid Hurricane Sandy, there's no mail today, and my Faust wig is in virginia DX I hope this storm passes soon with minimal damage, since I'd really like to have it by Halloween.

I'm actually working on something like this for a project for my class right now! The assignment is a "Comic Remix" where I have to take a comic page and recreate it using photos as a base. I instantly knew to break out the cosplays. xD I'm thinking a page from the first chapter of Cardcaptor Sakura. If it comes out well enough I'll probably end up posting it to Coscom. c:

My Faust VIII wig came, despite the hurricane. Whoever my mailman is, he's a hero. This wig is so much nice than the last wig I bought for Faust, it'll actually work once I get it cut and styled.

Mailmans have started to become my favorite people! One of my wigs will hopefully arrive today!

Work ended up closing today due to the Frankenstorm spinning off the coast. Since my current cosplay project involves hand sewing bias tape, I'm just working on that for now, while I have light at the very least.

At this rate, I may be able to finish the sewing, and possibly get the vast majority of this bodice done today and tomorrow. Yay... I suppose.

Going to get off my ass and get a curved needle so I can sew wefts into my Makoto with without wanting to claw my eyes out.

@ Clockwork Ducky - Enjoy your day off. Is the storm freaky? I haven't been in a hurricane since I moved from Florida to Kentucky thirteen years ago.

I'd be enjoying it more if I weren't terrified my sewing room would get flooded if a tree takes out our power line It's a nasty storm - Cat 1 hurricane that is now doing the Fusion dance with a massive cold front from the Great Lakes, resulting in a horrible thing.

I'm likely going to finish that bodice tonight, though. And I managed to rig up Bob the Skull for my husband's upcoming Harry Dresden costume. Not enjoying the day off, but I'm being productive, at least.

Hopefully everything will be okay. D: I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Whoo! Sabriel's surcoat is all happy and lined. But I'm REALLY not in the mood for exact measurements and cutting for the trim. I've realized how much I hate cutting silk through this project.
