Well first off I figured out how to tackle a dominator from Psycho Pass. I guess I'm going to taking a trip to the thrift store this weekend after all in order to see if I can find a toy gun to use as a base.

Also, I got proposed to on DA. Ummmm yeah. Not really how to feel about that. XD

My Gala Pinkie won the Judges' Award in Sac-Con's cosplay contest! That was my first convention contest, so I'm pretty excited. The judges complimented my ambition for tackling a difficult costume for my first time sewing one as well as my attention to detail. It was also kind of hilarious (although maybe a smidge embarrassing but I'm typically one to be nervous/flustered on stage) that I had my own brony cheering section. xD;

Decided to make my monthly futile attempt to find a wig for Gin. His hair is a weird color that's halfway between brown and grey that wigs simply don't come in, and it's maddening.

Of course, for the first time, I find one that's a dark blondeish-brown that maybe with a little sharpie dying could work, and the listing ends in 6 days. I just ordered my Lui and Peta wigs and I'm getting Isaak for christmas so there's no way I could get it now DX

Why universe why? DX

RIP, Cosmo cosplay. Your shirt has been chopped up and used for pant pockets. I was happy with Philip and the wand with that costume, but that's really it. Stupid floofy wig.

Oh man, totally found that there's a Hanock Fabrics near me, which I never knew about. It's only 20 - 30 minutes away compared to Joann's full hour. Plus their selection is twice as better! I found a pattern I needed, some dark red lining, AND some $.75 scraps I can turn into gloves!

I have one more costume to finish by January. I only have 4 free days to actually sew though... Good thing I wasn't planning on studying for finals. Highschool is great.

My friend wants me to cosplay Kuroko no basketball... which is great and all but I've played Basketball for almost half of my life. I can do the poses and everything.... but picking who to cosplay will be a pain because of my past with basketball. I can't be Kagami because I'm not a power forward. Can't be Kuroko because thats the total opposite of my playing. I'm a center and 7 years later its still in my brain that I can't play any other position in basketball.

I only have two photos as Aya Hoshino. My hair was all wrong and then I was freaking out that weekend because I was on limited funds not that I spent much at the convention anyway.

My friend made an amazing Rei. I am not sure what I am going to do with this cosplay yet. It might be retired until I can fix my hair or until I can get a wig for it.

Aya and Rei?

So far for next year, I'll be able to be Kaname which I am beyond excited about. I'm just waiting on January to get here so I can pay my commissioner for the uniform. I am penny pinching like crazy.

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.
There is no such thing as cheating in cosplay unless it's for a masquerade. Feel free to buy your costume and wear it in the hallways!

Next time, Spoonflower. The acetone transfer only worked so-so, and so I'm going over the entire pattern with fabric marker, and ... blergh. (Also, next time less procrastinating. It seems like I can't work on anything unless it's the 11th hour. >_> )
But this hoodie will be awesome and my sister will be the envy of all the Japanese fangirls at the next concert she goes to, gosh darn it. *determined face*

My Peta wig came in today, and while I'm a little annoyed that it got here from China faster than my Lui wig got here from california, it's perfect. I actually managed to find a dark blonde wig with a green tint and it's actually the right color in person. I'm amazed but very happy ^^ It just needs a little straightening but it'll work perfectly for Peta

Edit: I have a picture, it should be at the top of the page: http://quinn-the-spazz.tumblr.com/
