I'm so excited to finally be working with some fabric for a change. I just cut the pieces I need for Micaiah's dress and I'm loving the feel of the poly-satin. It's also got just the right amount of shine and looks dead on, color wise.

If it wasn't already late I'd run to the store and get more fabric to work with.. I'm dying to get started on Aerith's dress again.

Welp! i decided to use 2 wigs for Reira (weird right! lol) I have curly light brown i styled already today and the curly pink one i will do the same when it arrives. Just wondering if before i style the bangs to pink one, if i should do a character i also plan to cosplay before hand or not. Seeing as how the bangs for Reira go above eyebrow level.

I really wish the temptation to cosplay like 5-6 other characters would flee already cause i have about 4 i really could start working on seeing as how 2 of them are with a group.

I think tonight I'm going to do a little wig work. I think my GIR wig needs another wash to get all the excess out. I think there's still a little silver still rubbing off. I'll probably also give the Doctor's wig a wash too (now that I know how I need to style it). Then both Miho and my Elphaba wigs need bangs work. Luckily I can wash the first two and style the second two while they're drying.

Finding reference pictures of a semi-old (early 2000s) anime that wasn't extremely popular to begin with, is difficult. I wouldn't have any problem getting the images if my DVD player on my laptop worked, as I have the whole series.

-sigh- It's good thing I don't need them just yet. I probably won't even need them until after Christmas (when I have money again) But still, I'd like to already have my reference images ready.

I guess I'll go print out my reference pictures for Merlin, so I can gather the right color fabric for him tonight.

Sooo.... I just got convinced to cosplay one of the most ridiculoud and laughable outfits ever:
God Tier!Cronus Ampora
I will lose the ability to take myself seriously, everyone will laugh at me, I will wear a colour I dislike and have a friggin codpiece, reminiscent of a banana.
...
It will be so much FUN! 8D
And at least I wont be alone, a friend will do God Tier!Gamzee, so I won't be the only idiot with a codpiece. |D (Codpiece. I can't stop saying/writing it. 8D)


Also, I completely fell in love with Porrim's new outfit from the Ministrife update. Somehow I already have almost everything I need for it at home, too! Just have to make the green bow, get green pantyhose, make a nice belt buckle and replace the black buttons on the skirt I'm using with golden ones. It's a tiny little pixelly thing of a reference picture, so I'm just gonna take some creative freedoms.
More convenient for my poor wallet that way anyway - aaaand painting myself will become about 80% easier, because of way more coverage. xP

I got yellow gloves for my Rogue cosplay.


I also got some 'X' patches that should have come in by now.

Crap, thought I was done with a cosplay that I need in two weeks, but need to slightly modify the scarf of it. Shouldn't be too much work though :/

Hooray, I finally stitched my Twilight Sparkle ears to the wig. God it sucks when I have to symmetrically place two things. Like ears. I'm SO bad getting things even and I was constantly taking it off and on to check on myself since wig heads are terriible at not making it visible that your wig's not on evenly.

I had a great first day at Anime USA! A girl actually recognized my Kohaku cosplay! I was over the moon.

I went to the fabric store today with my boyfriend. I purchased some yellow fabric for a Tidus genderbend. I just did a little sewing and it's looking pretty great. I'm very excited for this. I have to keep readjusting my thread though and it's getting late BUT I am happy with what I have so far.

I got almost all my supplies to make Merlin. Yay! (Everything but the pattern for the jacket, and the belt is debatable on whether I'm going to make it or if I'm just going to buy a really large belt and just wear that.)

Except I'm trying to cut out the pants, and I know I got the right amount of fabric for them, but no matter how I lay the pattern out it doesn't fit. ): I don't want to cut the fabric unless I know for sure I don't have to go out and buy more of the fabric. I mean it wasn't that expensive, but I really don't want to spend more money than I have to right now. /sigh

I'll just work on them after I get up in the morning. But, this is really putting me off from making pants... again. ;__;
