Does it stay as long as PAX does and does it rub off on anything? Any specific type of glue or would you just use basic Elmer's glue?

Well, as far as stay-time, I painted the top of my forearm and left it on for several hours a few nights ago, and I didn't have any problems with it at all. As far as rubbing off, no, it doesn't rub on off on anything (even though I had my jacket sleeves pushed up to my elbows and so it was constantly rubbing up on it), and you don't even need to powder it because it's not tacky after it's dry. I used tacky glue (because it's a bit stronger), but Elmer's glue would probably work the same way, I suppose.

I just put in my time off request at work for Sakura-Con 2013! I asked for Wednesday through Sunday, because I foresee my group having a cosplay crisis as the con approaches. As per usual.

Great....I think I lost one of my Sailor Mercury gloves...I hope I have enough fabric to make another. -__-

********
I was staring at my new short red wig thinking about what else I can use it for when I thought of an idea! How about Bowser from Super Mario! I can totally have my niece and nephew cosplay as the Mario brothers! My niece's very first crossplay? xD

So. Since I'm pushing Toshiya back another year, I'm planning on picking up GMG Erza as my major project for the year. Which means that my lineup for Sakura-Con looks, more or less in order of most important to least important, like this:

Homura
GMG Erza
White Atelier Pierrot Dress
Homura (School Uniform)
Starry Sky


I kiiiind of want to try and push for Student Council President Erza as well, since I had to bail on it last year, but I also know that I should stop biting off more than I can chew. .-.

85 days, 2 hours, 48 minutes, 26 seconds until the Party Starts!

Starting on making up the patterns for Connor's bead work, and...arguably, the most time consuming one isn't even supposed to be beads. Upon closer inspection, it's woven but there is no possible way I'll be able to actually weave that pattern nicely. Hopefully doing it as bead work will suffice.
And started drafting up how exactly I'm going to make the arsenal of props I'll be needing for A-Kon. So far I have to make Russia's faucet pipe, Connor's bow, quiver&arrows and his tomahawk.

Checked the mail, wig and body paint still not here, bought stuff for backup body paint and am prepared to dye my hair and extensions black if need be.

Did more work on my Seymour wig, so far... it looks like how I wanted it? It's not quite sticking out the way it should but that can be fixed when my hands are up to it. (I got an oil burn from cooking dinner two days ago, so still kinda hurts.)

My progress went backwards for one cosplay though... My mom stole my Dino pants. *sweatdrop*

Hahaha, this gave me a good laugh. xD

Time to work on my mask, the weather has been dreadful this past week so I'm going to try and do some light sanding inside. I don't want to.... but I'm running out of free time. >_<

I know. My mum says Pfaff is what she and her mum both had, so we might be checking out a few of those. (And I've been sewing on mum's for some years and I like it and am used to it.) Or maybe a Bernette. The plan is to buy a good basic machine that will last me a lifetime, hopefully.

@esclarmonde Yeah, I'm quite excited to get it! Yours sounds very nice. ^_^

I have a Pfaff! It's a Pfaff Ambition 1.0 that I bought last spring. Let me tell you, this machine is beautiful.

The sales lady I bought it from actually makes cosplay costumes for her daughter who goes to some of the same cons I do, and so she showed me all the relevant tricks that machine can do. She started off with test sewing through 6 or 8 layers of heavyweight denim and the machine didn't even bat an eye.

It's got a computerized panel where you input what stitch you want, how long you want the stitch, how wide the stitch should be, etc, and if you switch to a new stitch and tab over twice on the interface, there's a screen that tells you what that stitch is called, what it does, what it's most commonly used for, and/or what kind of fabric it's best used on!

The machine also has a speed control slidey-button, which means I can set the max speed to be super slow when I'm sewing super tiny and precise details. Or with slippery, fraying fabric. It also has a build in walking foot, which meant nothing to me until I used it.

It also weighs 18 pounds, which means it's not getting pushed around the table by me manhandling a whole costume under the needle. It also means I don't take it out of the sewing room because heavy. .-.


/excited ramble
Somehow I always sound like I'm selling products. I'm just really in love with my sewing machine, okay? .-.

Well, that does sound like an awesome sewing machine. (lol especially the sewing through a lot of layers of fabric, because that definitely happens with cosplay.) Also wow, it tells you what the stitch is good for!
Hehe, don't worry, that was an useful ramble. ^_^
