Oh, my wallet. I just spent $150 on the electronics for Quorra (7 metres of LED flexi-strips, 2 battery packs, an arduino mini, a transistor and half a dozen connection bridges). BEFORE shipping costs and the batteries. X_X ....and that wasn't even the entire cost. Boyfriend agreed to pay the extra, which added up to another $20 on his end along with batteries and shipping.

Was at a local art store today to pick up a last minute gift and saw my favourite brand of spray paint (which is usually somewhat expensive) was 40% off.

Going back tomorrow to buy most of the colors my boyfriend and I will need for props/armor cosplays this year! Plus we're gonna start planning for his Skarner (from LoL) cosplay yeee.

Making a list of things to bring to ALA. I've never gone to a con that's far away from home so I just really hope I don't forget anything O.O

Huzzzzzzah! Progress has been made! I don't get along with the coscom uploader so I put a WIP shot on my deviantart if anyone is interested. It's just the basics of my mask but I'm so happy with it that I can't wait for it to dry so I can continue! Haha. xD It's for the One Piece character Brook, by the way.

Gah, my sister remembered that she didn't finish her and her friend's cosplays yet for a con in a couple of weeks. And they need zippers among other things. -_- And Jo-Anns is about an hour away from home. At least I can see if I can find a better plaque to use for Saber's sword hilt while I'm there at least. Just have to figure out when to go...

And does anyone know a temporary way to attach craft foam to fabric? I need to attach a piece to a belt of mine but I don't want to ruin the belt by permanently putting it on.

EDIT: OMG. I started playing Eternal Sonata yesterday and I'm in LOVE with Viola. I love her outfit so much and her personality. *_* Her skirt though...like what is it? I've seen people use fur and some others use feathers.... I think it is feathers from what it looks like in the game but I''m not really sure...

What? WHAT? So my arm warmers, stockings, and my hat came to me today?! I'm a happy cosplayer. Now all I'm missing are my shoes and my wig - which should be coming with the next week or two. YES.

Ahh, I got antsy last night and felt like sewing my top for Benten even though it's ages until I wear that cosplay. But now that it's started, I'd also like to finish it, which means attaching rhinestones.
And I'm finally getting a pattern for Callie Ohpeee's tailcoat, yeaaaahhh~!
While I was waiting on that I made her White Wand out of boredom.

And still waiting for my fabric for Gareki's jacket, the cosplay I actually need to get finished soon... u_u
At least his goggles have arrived.

So I spent xmas week out of state, surrounded by family that I've never met. It sucked, but I came to the realisation that I'll probably never grow out of my costuming habit. It's something that I can talk about forever. I may go through slumps, but I'll always be at it in one way or another.

My friend invited me over to her house today to watch Sailor Moon movies on one condition: I come dressed as Tuxedo Mask.

I did (much to my father’s dismay of me leaving the house in a cape, bowtie and mask,) and the first thing she said when she opened the door was “Mom! Tuxedo Mask is here! And he brought roses!” and both her mom and grandma were gushing over how nice my cape was.

...I love my cape X)

That's awesome! I just reached the part where you are first introduced to her and I love her personality too. Yeah, if only we were in the same area. It would be awesome to get pictures. At least we can be a group in spirit? XD

With my interest in Viola now, Pascal is just slowly dying as I'm quickly losing motivation to finish her. >_< Like, I still love her but the awesome urge isn't there anymore. I'm hoping by playing the game a bit, it will spark the urge to return.
