I know how you feel- I got the wrong ribbon from a store two hours away, so now I'm stuck with it. -.-

My mom said she would get me the shoes I want for Yusuke for Christmas. Plus they're super cute and comfy for use outside of cosplay!

Letting procrastination get the better of me right now.. figure I'd let myself have today to be all emo and then I'll slap myself tomorrow and get back to sewing.. and everything else I still need to do in 1 month's time.

Besides, if you're going to procrastinate, what better way then letting your mom watch YGOTAS? Ha. She loves it. Now we drive my dad nuts by quoting the characters.

All the rushing to get things done is totally worth having my mom quote Yami.

Oof, that's rough. I'm only about 20 minutes from my Joann's, but still. I really just couldn't have measured the hat bands first? Nope. Derp.

I tried just ripping off the existing hat band, but apparently it attaches the brim to the body of the hat...so yeah. I need to cover it without removing it.

I just finished the final drawing of my next cosplay, including all modifications and annotations, so hopefully by the end of the week I will get the stuff I need to start (I want to start with the props and wing).

So I wound up going to a traditional Japanese karaoke place. Knowing that I'd only know like 3 songs, I brought my sewing. It was the most productive sewing time I've had all weekend. Stupid holidays.

Totally burnt up the belt from of my Magic armor XD It's my fault for being distracted. Guess I have to start over *sigh* they took me 3 hours ;u; That is the part that hurts.

I got majorly lucky today. My Dad has a old guitar that has a broken neck. He said I could keep it though. It only looks broken from the back and now I can take some awesome pictures of Spain with a really cool prop!

Ugh. I really don't think I can fit this cosplay right without a dressform. It has to fit skin-tight, but it's ALSO pleather, and I have to fasten it up the sides, which I can't really do on morethan one side without right-out sewing it. So combine the two, and just "keep sewing and try and fit it right" won't work because it'll mark up my cosplay. FUCK. And I'm still trying to figure out just how I can do the neck/collar AND get into the damn thing. There's a high collar and lights everywhere I could possibly put a zipper, and the mesh/neoprene on the throat and chest would pretty well have to be sewn in place, and I am NOT even gonna try putting an invisible zipper into that.

I've been watching a ton of Yu Yu Hakusho today while I decorated my christmas tree, I think I'm going to cosplay Sakyo. I've been wanting to on-and-off for a month or so now and I think I'm just gonna go for it, I already have everything except a wig anyway.

Squee! After moaning about the impossibility of getting this thing fitted right without a form to use, Mom said "How much? I'll get you one for your birthday" (which is in two weeks). I'm soooooooo thankful. A dressform will make all of my costumes a crapton easier and I've wanted one, just never particularly NEEDED one, for a long damn time.

Well since I have time on my hand I'm going to be working on fixing my Mizore skirt because: 1) it's big on me since I lost weight since the last time I made it (yay for weight lost xD ) and 2) because when I made this skirt I did it by hand and now that I know how to use a sewing machine I'd like to make it better! ^_^

I'm also re-making my Sailor Mercury skirt because when I was last making it I was kinda in a rush and I accidently cut it a bit too short in the back and well since I'll be taking her to ALA soon I don't want any accidents happening xD my sailor tiara should arrive by the end of the month!

And now I have sudden urge to cosplay as Sherry from RE6 and a team magma grunt xD oh me and my silly ideas haha~!

Just got home from Kollision Con, and now uploading videos. I have to say that this year was pretty bad and organized compared to last, but it had it's moments. Lots of Gangnam Style throughout the weekend!

Friends seem to keep asking my about a con in December, but still not sure I'm going. Leaning towards no though, but you never know :/
