Trying to get motivated to work on my cosplays... but the nausea from adjusting to my new glasses is kind of killing my sewing mood.

If you went up a prescription and can still see well enough to sew out of your old ones, just put your old ones back on to sew? When I get new glasses, I usually get myself used to them bit by bit. Like, I'll put the new ones on around the house and when sitting for the first few days, when walking keep the old ones on for a bit and start using the new ones little by little to avoid getting driven nuts by that weird "floor tilting" effect you get with new ones for the first few weeks.

Nope, these are my first pair ever. XD It only took 27 years. So I don't really want to take them off to sew, since it would defeat the purpose of having them in the first place. I'm going to suck it up and work on stuff in a little bit though. That "floor tilting" effect happens when I walk though and its sort of amusing.

I REALLY need to work on Eva, I've decided to hold off on finishing her shoe covers until I figure out EXACTLY what I want to do for them. Though because I don't get to finish them now, and am going to be starting on something new/different, it's kinda killed my motivation T_T Why can't things just cooperate with me?!

I've been wanting to check out Katsu one of these years, so I'm curious, how expensive are we talking? >_>

I really want to go up walmart and get done stuff for Lucille, but none of my friends are willing to go with me DX maybe I can get my dad to take me after I finish helping my Grandma.

I woke up sick this morning and for some reason I thought it was a good idea to go out in the cold and get fabric anyway. I had a 60% off coupon that expired today; I couldn't just stay at home.

asdkjdgas thank you~ And I love Pandora Hearts too, it's my favorite manga.
And my friend is actually having the same problem with her Kurloz. Because on one hand prosthetic and yarn would look much more realistic and cool, but it is also very restricting. While just painting on the mouth lines is a lot easier and more practical but it doesn't look as cool.

Agh, I'll post here while all my friends are away at an event I can't go to. >n<;
Well, a lot has happened since my last post which was forever long ago. First thing being that I went to AAD for the first year in a couple of years, because of a lot of being good and begging \(^w^)/ It was a ton of fun; I made quite a few new friends and got to hang out with one awesome one...and a lot of people really liked my random, thrown together Gumi (A Halloween pirate outfit, Gumi wig and goggles, and some boots..really nothing special), though whether that was because I was the only Gumi at the con I don't know. It was awesome though, now I just have to wait for pictures x-x
And, after that, I continued to watch Inu x Boku after starting it..and I can safely say I am probably obsessed. Not finished yet..I'm trying to save the last few episodes so I don't just love it and then get over it when it ends. However..I want to cosplay everything. Ririchiyo and Natsume are my main conflict right now..and with what I'm planning to do with each, they would cost about the same. I know I would be a much better Ririchiyo, but I am almost in love with Natsume..I may just start with Ririchiyo and move up from there, and do Natsume if/when I find a suit that actually fits me in a somewhat flattering way.
On top of that, I have finished Sherlock and realized I only need a scarf and a wig to do femSherlock (maybe as a Halloween costume or something?), and have fallen for Mayu from Vocaloid 3. Did I mention I'm also still doing Silica at AWA for our SAO group? (I don't know, I might let another girl that wanted to do it if I can't get back into SAO like I was. That'll depend how I feel about everything. >.<; )
I have too many plans. As always.

WELL, so much for that dressform I really fucking need. There were a BUNCH of the ones in my size at Fabricland YESTERDAY when I went to make sure they had them. Come in today? EVERY. ONE. SOLD. OUT. And now I won't be able to get mine until past my birthday and almost Xmas, AND I'M ALREADY BEHIND ON THIS COSTUME. And that was their fault too! It took me until fucking November to get the items I needed to make it in the first place when I'd planned to start in AUGUST. Oh, and the sales lady who "helped" us was a rude fucking bitch.

Looking at Sherry's apron design saying I can do this. I can't do this alone. Time to hit one of my friends and ask them to draw the design for me.

Can't make up my mind if I want to check out s one time con that's happening the weekend before Christmas. Part of me wants to maybe take a break, but then I probably won't have another con until May :/ The convention is about 1 hour 30 minutes away. I was kind of considering checking it out for just one day, but my friend said I could stay at his place which is only 30 minutes away if I do go.

On one hand it's really cheap, but it might be kind of boring since it's a one time thing. Probably won't be many people there. Can't decide it it'll be worth the trip. I also have some friends that I haven't seen since July who are supposedly going, but last con they ended up not being able to go last second I also may freeze to death in my cosplay (shorts in winter!) XD

On more positive side, it gives me a chance to Gangnam Style some more before the fad completely dies. I have gotten so much better at it recently XD The panel list also sounds a lot better than the last con's panel list, and they have free foods there ^.^ Lol, I'll probably decide the week of the con if I'm going at this rate!

Related to my prior rage on no dressform, this felt SO good to write. All the reasons why Fabricland is a terrible, terrible excuse for a store. http://shinobixikyu.deviantart.com/journal/

OMG. I LOVE MY FRIENDS. HAHAHA. Even though they are not into the things that I am in (like anime and cosplay), they bought me this portable sewing machine that I could bring to cons just in case I have accidents (and also because my mom is always using her's, so now I have my own to use while I wait for her). They are soooo thoughtful and wonderful people. I can't wait even more to start on July and Cater! <3

On the topic of my Colonial marine cosplay- I'm about to attempt making the shoulder light. I was able to find a doorbell panel at work which was about to be thrown away. I've seen a pic where someone took one and added a few parts to it to make it look like the shoulder light. I'll try and do that
