I post progress photos for Ukyo on Facebook and my friend tells me she's working on Shampoo. A group cosplay just fell into my lap.

Extremely excited because I found some purple shorts to use for my cosplay. I've been scouting the internet and all of them were pricy or the wrong look. I found these in my drawer I bought back in May for something else and forgot about!

Also my friend told me the leggings I need are for sale in the store she works in and she will get me a pair for free! Yay!

Getting an idea of what cons I want to go to next year. Friend is trying to get me to go to Anime Milwaukee for one day. I would drive about 1 hour to his house, and he would drive the other hour to the con. Not sure if it's worth it or not...

Then there's a small 1 day college anime convention in February. Not sure if it'll be worth the train ticket to go, but it's free at least :/

I got my Arda wigs in the mail today!!! <3 I can't wait to style Leena's wig but I have to wait until Christmas. xD I also realized that my pumpkin ferrari would be PERFECT for Clary from The Infernal Devices! Which of course means my bff and I are planning on cosplaying as Clary and Izzy for the City of Bones Movie premier in August~

Not to mention I decided that a Jareth was the perfect style for both Hinamori Amu from Shugo Chara and Ayuzawa Misaki from Kaicho wa Maid-sama! So now I'm trying to talk myself out of adding two more ideas to my ever growing cosplay list... I think I'm loosing.

I'm cosplaying Kurloz from Homestuck and I have to decide whether to make a sewn-shut-mouth prosthetic, which looks awesome but may or may not... keep me from eating anything that won't fit between the strings; or draw it on and be able to eat and talk and etc. xDD Decisions, decisions.

Going in to see Rise of the Guardians earlier today, I kept telling myself that I wouldn't cosplay anyone from it...
yet here I am making patterns and planning out materials along with a ride to the fabric store in the morning.

Self-control? What's that?

Ok so I'v been fretting about nothing as apparently the shipping email for my Lui wig was sent out last Friday, and it's been on it's way to me the whole time.

Now it's been a week and it's only coming from California so where the heck is it!? GAH! DX

You know what term I dislike? "Attention whore". It's really negative and shameful and it gets used a lot in cosplay. Whether for real or imagined justification, it's still a really nasty expression that gets used to mock girls a lot, even though the term is gender-neutral.

I think we need to come up with a new expression that doesn't slut-shame but still points out why being a vain jerk is bad. I hear a lot of people *coughTUMBLRcough* preaching about why "there's nothing wrong with wanting attention!!1" - and while there technically isn't - you never hear these people acknowledging how, actually, if you don't know how to moderate, which a lot of cosplayers do not, it can be very problematic. There are certain situations where making things about you or putting yourself at centre stage is very inappropriate.

So, yeah. Is it just me or do we need to come up with an alternative that ditches the sexism but still points out when it's too much/when someone is just being vain?
