Stressing about getting this job so I can fund my con and BJD habit. Money money money.
Feeling a bit hated and looked down upon for being one of those cosplayers who can't sew and just buys their cosplays. And apparently getting into character is now frowned upon when it really shouldn't be.
Need to figure out how to make a damn lead pipe that's appropriate.
Wig's not fluffy enough, way too short-General cosplay character worries.

My friend essentially gave me a costume tonight. I still have to pay but for I'm paying for it it's practically a steal. Normally the costume would be about close to 300 and I'm paying less than a quarter of that. I'm so amazed he let me have it and allowing me to finally get my foot in the door for the rebel legion. I'm just so blown away! I will wear it with pride. Damn sure as hell I will.

I can't wait til I get my ponytail clip so that I can do some cosplay preview/make-up tests. I hate waiting for stuff to arrive. XD

Sudden inspiration to also do Homura Akemi's school uniform version has come. Especially since I already have a matching skirt for it and would just have to find out how to make the top....
And I talked to my cosplay partner friend and got hyped up all over again for Gareki with her as Nai. >w<
And now we've planned on doing some Vocaloid cosplays together. Her as Piko Utatane and me as VY2 Yuuma/Roro. Magnet version first! Since we have a lot of stuff for that already, we may even manage a snow shooting. x3

Hmm... after thoroughly enjoying using one for my cousin's wedding, I might change my stance about not liking liking SLR cameras and bring one for the next con I'm at.

I've got everything figured out for Maria's dress, but now I need the fabric. Why must I always be broke? -sobs into pillow-

Somebody told me I can't cosplay any of the people I want to because I'm too short and that makes me a terrible cosplayer. It's not my fault I can't grow anymore, that shouldn't stop me from cosplaying someone just because the character is a lot taller than me, everyone is taller than me.

Tisk, whoever told you that is terribly rude. Height shouldn't matter when you cosplay...yeah, it's a nice touch when you happen to be as short or as tall as the character you are portraying, but it doesn't affect the most important thing: Your costume.

On the other hand, I am thinking of ordering my glasses for Jade.
I'm also considering getting some plano contact lenses in the future.

I can now only afford one cosplay next year which will be Kaname Chidori.

All of my money for the most part will be going to something non-cosplay (that I can't mention) related so for the most part, I'm going to be penny pinching like crazy after this cosplay. It's pretty depressing. I'm possibly going to sell old cosplays and even taking on commissions for the horns that everyone seemed to love.

Do not listen to that person. Honestly, height should not matter. It's not something you can change(I personally think using those platform shoes, unless it works with the character, are ugly and clash really bad with most characters). I'm, personally, short for most of the characters I cosplay but I don't let that stop me. I will cosplay whoever I want. So yeah, do what you want to do, ignore the person.

Found out that the package that came in today was a care package from home. >_> And here I thought it was Candy(Smile Precure) or Mor's bracelets. Blah. I need to do the shipping dance to make them come in time before I need to go home for the winter break. *gets dancing*

I...am hitting the cosplay roadblock again. Or however it's worded.

I'm supposed to be working on stuff but...every time I try to...it just sort of doesn't work. I'm just...not feeling anything and it's driving me mad. Nothing worse than losing the feeling of enjoyment from something that usually keeps 'ya going.
