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.

Trying to decide if I want to do a long wig for my genderbent Kakashi Sensei or his normal hair. I just CAN NOT decide! Gah!

Where do I go after the next build... I probably will work on my "photoshoot only" wings

In the next build, I'll be merging the last two builds I've made into a single wing.

I need to rework the harness to minimize weight as well as minimize the amount of space taken up in luggage space because it's a huge premium for the realty.

Perhaps, there is still much to do.

Try thinking of the character as a woman. That helps me sometimes figure it out. Like, for me, a female Wolfwood still has short hair while a female Tuxedo Mask has long. I would probably go for his normal hair myself. GL!

Gah! Stop it, cosplay ideas! Stop it! It looks like now I'll probably be doing a surprise cosplay for some friends of mine at Winter SacAnime, and I'm suddenly in the middle of an Adventure Time group as Fiona, and on top of that I'm really tempted to cosplay Vanellope from Wreck-It Ralph. Granted, Fiona and the surprise cosplay in question are pretty simple, but I'm so swamped with work to do at the moment... OTL

I'll have to see if I have a Sallys here! Thanks for the tips, guys. =)

I lost all of last night to being sick. =( I was planning on sewing up a dress and life just kind of punched me in the stomach.

I need to go see the eye doctor soon, to check my prescription, as my glasses are now on their last leg, since my friend accidentally stepped on them. I'm debating on whether or not to try contacts. Since it might make it easier for pictures. Since 95% of the time I cosplay somebody who doesn't wear glasses. And removing my glasses for a picture is what got me into my broken glasses mess to begin with... (Although it was completely my fault since my glasses weren't secure on my head. If they were, they would have stayed on, and my friend wouldn't have stepped on them.)

Won my first cosplay contest. Currently too excited for words! Eeeeeee!

That dress just... took so much work, it feels fantastic to see it getting such overwhelmingly positive feedback/recognition. I really just don't know what to say.

Time to implement a six-step plan to try and get about three pounds of feathers for my wings for under $25... I'm not too optimistic but I have about seven months...

About my Lord Raptor mask. Since I'll be wearing a blue morphsuit with the cosplay, should I paint the mask blue as well?
