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.

Finished styling Soubi's wig, worked for a while on the pants and shoes, finished Seimei's flower choker thing, started working with the bandages Bro and I dyed the other day, and started several small props for our Loveless shoot next month.

Giving our Super Mario Bros costumes some love tonight before I get back to my real job tomorrow morning.

A productive weekend, certainly.

Yes *rubs hands together* Eva's skirt is going MUCH better than those stupid shoe covers ... you have NO idea how happy I am about that XD

I've decided I'm not going to go back to finishing the shoe covers until I'm completely done with the rest of the costume, and have gone over all of my options, so I can get those damn things made, finished, and not have to waste any more time on them @_@

That person is extremely rude for saying that. It doesn't matter how tall you are, what matters is that you love the character and have fun being them!


On a completely different note, I am a third of the way done with finals! Finished my final paper for one class last night. Tonight is one final, tomorrow's the other. Which means starting Wednesday I'll have a whole month with more time that I can use to finally get Wolfwood's confessional done and have her ready for OhayoCon. Now I just need to figure out what I want the emcee to say and what music I want in the background. I'm stuck between Dude, Looks Like a Lady and RuPaul's Glamazon. Any thoughts?

Going to go shopping today for cosplay materials~ Or at least, to look at them. >_< I really hope my brother gets me a giftcard to use on cosplay stuff for christmas. I'm at the very least getting the things I need to finish Zelda's apron. That way I'll have eveything I need to finish her (except the crown's clay and ears) by the new year!

Also, since most of my friends cosplay, I've decided to make some of them parts for their upcoming cosplays as christmas presents! =D

Never made a costume...

My guy friend and I want to go as Link and Zelda from Twilight Princess to a convention sometime soon.
The only problem is that we have no idea how to go about the costumes. I've only ever cosplayed once, and I cheated and bought my costume. My question is, "Is it even a good idea to look into buying Link and Zelda costumes, or does everyone think it's a bad idea?" Price isn't in the picture right now, I'm just looking for quality. I can't sew very well at all. I've only ever done crafts in home-ec, so I would have NO idea where to even begin with the costumes if I were to make them. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME.

If you've never sewn before I would recommend you two to choose simpler cosplays. Twilight Princess versions are quite challenging to do for a beginner.
