Finished hammering the grommets and eyelets into my Pinkie Pie bodice tonight, and was able to try it on for the first time in the 3 months I've been working on it.

Holy crap - it actually fits. It actually fits, and the embroidery gets pulled properly so it lays flat against my torso, and it didn't instantly disintegrate into ash and ribbon like I had a nightmare that it did.

On top of that, it is as supportive as some of my professionally made corsets from RenFest (which was a huge fear I had with regards to this bodice). Now that I've seen it on me, though, I think I will be embellishing it quite a bit more, since it actually looks a bit more princess than pirate. Possibly due to the fact that it is a lovely mix of fuschia and baby pink...

But I just can't get over the fact that I actually made a bodice, with boning, and embellishments, and everything, and it fits me properly.

My friend had to drag me away from the green bias tape and purple fabric today. Seriously drag me away so I wasn't tempted to buy them and try to cosplay Zoisite from Sailor Moon now. Dangit brain, you will cosplay Zoisite next year, focus on the cosplays you're doing soon!

>3< I found an old walking stick in my closet that is absolutely perfect to make into Connor's bow! It's the perfect size and it's even all bent in a nice bow-like curve. And according to my next con's weapons policy, it's totally allowed too. I'm so happy over here.

I just cut a spatula shape out of insulation foam. Man, my living room needs some serious vacuuming.

I'm being bad. My niece is still set on that Celestia and Luna thing... And I'm telling myself, "No, Reily... you've got a list. Follow you're damned list, Luna is far down it. No, Reily, no. NO." Yet here I am itching to start doing research...

I have a Cultural Anthropology class at 8am on Monday. Seriously tempted to walk into class with my blue wig on and my cat ears. The professor already knows me from last semester and honestly saying. "How do you like this for culture?"

My effing University is too damn conservative sometimes. They're really not to open to a lot of diversity so I'm looking to really change that this coming year with my organization with a cosplay day. I'm the only one on campus that cosplays.

I definitely want to, the thing that's holding me back is cost-effectiveness. ^^;

So I have counted up the amount of cosplays I still have to wear/get photos of, remake, and finish, it comes to about a total of 9! I really need to get those finished or photographed before I continue putting them aside for new costumes.

Today my mom gave me a bin for my cosplay stuff, as we have talked about it before. We are estimating that I probably need two more for the rest of the stuff

I look at my old Relius Clover mask and think to myself. Oh my god, this is horrible.

... but its the most beautiful thing i've ever made at the same time since i've never made a mask before in my life.

My alec wig magically got messy, I should fix him up... and finally take some pictures.... But I don't want to fight with those damn contacts today.. but I go back to school on monday.jsjfajeageage. On the bright side my ex boyfriend/bestest friend in the whole wide world volunteered to dress up as Magnus. Totally not awkward at all.

Went shopping today with my sister and got the zippers for her cosplay, zippers for Pascal and I found a bunch of clear empty crhistmas ornaments to use for the orbs for Pascal! They are really big though but I seriously do not care. I will make it work...somehow. And I was able to find some really nice looking bird cage pendants online and I bought some huge keys today to make my friend and I the keys from After School Nightmare. ^_^ I'm hoping the birdcage will come in before I go back to college and I'm able to make them and give her one.

Brain, No. Stop that. You're not planning ANOTHER Sailor Moon cosplay. You're not making another one of those jackets. Yes I know I already have a wig and earrings but no. No no no no no! I'm putting my foot down on this one. I'm not giving in to you on this! Bad brain, bad! Stop it! I will poke you with a Q-tip if you try to get me to make another one of those jackets when I still have no idea how to make the first. Stop!

I hate my mind -_-
