I'm finding it hard to decide which costumes to major in for next year's AWA.
Should I work on multiple small projects or a few big projects..hmm..
Either way, I need some money for all of this lol.

So much for only buying one dress for the Formal Ball, I ended up buying two dresses which luckily cost me under 20 dollars. One is red and the other is a black and purple one.

The red one should be okay, I'm hoping, maybe I can put my hoop underneath it to really make it a nice formal dress. -Thinks and ponders;

3 Days until Anime USA, and I just realized something awesome. I was going to be wearing my Kohaku costume to school on Friday for the convention, and that's the day I have to play a butler for my drama class. My Kohaku cosplay a vest, a tie, a long coat and a short wig, which is pretty much exactly what I was gonna wear for the skit I love it when cosplay comes in handy in real life.

My wig and corset are in Chicago now finally. I was worried..don't think the cheap prices of eBay are worth the stress anymore though.

Tried on everything I have for Both Hatori and Kohaku in preparation for this weekend's convention. I also learned I can color my eyebrows for both of them with relative ease. So excited for Anime USA!

I'm in the planning stages of my Ukyo cosplay. After I finish Royal Suit Alice, I'll start on it. But I'm a little tempted to do her in the girl's school uniform. She only wore it in one episode, she usually wears the boy's uniform to school, but it's one of my favorites. She is most recognized for the outfit in my avatar. I'll probably end up doing her usual outfit but might do the uniform as alternate because she is just so cute in it.

My dad and I went to buy me a long black coat for my Isaak Von Kämpfer cosplay. When we got out of the store, I showed him a picture of Isaak to show what it'd look like when I was done. His reaction "ahh, sweet!"

My dad usually makes jokes about my cosplays and says stuff that only he thinks is funny (don't get me wrong, he supports it, but still) so having him say something enthusiastic like that makes me really happy.

Zelda's wig made it to my house. I also need to buy some shoe lifts so I can work on Miranda's boots. She has some long legs.

I'm wondering where I can get the best deals on the Styrofoam heads for wigs. I'm trying to find some in my local towns but man.. I almost miss living right next to a big city!

I'm also feeling nervous as my wigs have come in but I'll be my first time attempting to style one so I'm just sort of leaving them there for now.. well, except for a few bad pictures! Yay fail bathroom shots.

Try the wig stores or Sally's. hobby lobby has some but are for big heads like me.

I'm now wondering how to even put on a corset @_@

So happy get to go fabric shopping this weekend!!! I'm hoping to have enough if things work right. I just may be able to finish a Reira cosplay for Ikasucon if i'm lucky.

On a another good note i was able to find the perfect long black nails for Schera's gloves at the halloween store i worked at before it closed. still want to take her a slow and precise as possible so i doubt she'd be done within the year.

I got a taste trying my Halo Marine armor for the first time....WOW! It felt awesome to finally be able to wear it! Four years! Four long years of struggling my way through cosplaying I finally got to wear it! Damn I am so close it's crazy! Sorry...I'm just a bit excited, it's been a long journey for me. A little back story when I first started out cosplaying the costume I really wanted to do was Halo. But that kept getting pushed back again and again because of lack of resources, or lack of knowledge, not happy with a certain piece or no money to put into it. So I've slowly been learning and progressively getting better and better and in the mean time I've perfected other costumes and now got some really cool costumes under my belt now but Halo has always been eluding me these last few years. Always just out of reach. So getting to this point it's really an a accomplishment for me. Rather fitting too since things are finally falling into place and I have the resources I need to get this done and I'm taking my costuming to a new level if that makes sense lol.
