So somehow my money has worked out so that I was able to order two cosplays within a week of each other. Ririchiyo was ordered and should be in by a couple of weeks time (first TRUE female cosplay, whoo~), so that's definitely something to look forward to. :3
The other is my first costume I'm getting commissioned, this version of Ciel that I just sent the payment and measurements for. I'm actually getting to do another Ciel cosplay, oh my gah I'm excited. I just need to get plushies for Ririchiyo and a lot of accessories (and a plushie) for Ciel, then I'm either going to take a break from getting costumes until June or decide between trying to pull Aria (the Scarlet Ammo) together, or something simple like casual clothes for Ririchiyo, Homestuck, or something Deathnote. I'm leaning towards a break to spend money on things I personally want, though, since I can rewear Ciel or Ririchiyo at Seishuncon; the only con I'd have the opportunity to wear anything at. Overall, my con schedule is really busy this year, but it's full of characters I love and I'm excited for it :3

Also, I'm getting to be Silica with the best Asuna in existence and a guy at my school is being Kirito and I could possibly cosplay Yui with him and I'm having a whole bunch of SAO feelings

So I kinda want to do a crossplay now... the only thing keeping me back is my height. I know we always say, "Cosplay's for fun, don't let physical givens stop you!" but I always feel weird crossplaying since I'm 5 ft nothing and most anime guys are uber tall (as well as everyone else in comparison to me orz)... And this particular crossplay I can't even use height adding insoles... So now I am having an internal debate with myself...

You should crossplay anyway! : D We are the same height and the person I'm cosplaying that I've cumulatively spent the most time, energy, and money on is 10 inches taller than me in real life. It's still fun, and the new challenge is to get costume proportions right to compensate for the height difference.

I'm debating false eyelashes for my next two cosplays... Quorra and Twilight Sparkle. Quorra's got these HUGE eyelashes going on when you look closely, and I figured with the big girly pony eyes, I'd get some false eyelashes. Since, yeah, I have practically no eyelashes. But I know CRAP-ALL about them. No idea what to get, how to put them on, take them off, etc.

I don't know if people really know this series (it's not THAT popular), but I have the sudden urge to cosplay Tomoe from Kamisama Kiss <3

AND, I think I will get his costume done in time for Sakura-con :3 Just bought a wig and some other accessories~ lol I just have this thing for fox spirits lol

On another note, I think I have too many I want to cosplay :X

I just learned that Ahn!Con is being held at the same hotel the first two Motakus were held. I hated that hotel and it was the main reason I didn't go to Motaku's second year. But it seems the place was bought by Ramada so it's probably better now than it was back then. The name change threw me, so I didn't realize it was the same hotel.

To explain how bad this hotel was, a male housekeeper came into my room in the middle of the night. Being a woman alone, that is a really terrifying incident. Their excuse was that nighttime housekeeping didn't get an updated list of which rooms were occupied and that I must have checked in late. I checked in around 4 PM, I'm pretty sure his shift started after that and they should be printing the list the second he starts.

...well....that semi awkward moment when you realize you already have a few things for a crossplay you'd been trying not to think about. I guess this is what happens when I forget to put things away. When this would happen...I'm not sure yet...but...I already have an almost perfect photoshoot location in mind too.
But....it will happen.
Save me.

You shouldn't let height slow you down, I'm short as well. I'm an inch off from being legally classified as a 'little person' and really there aren't many characters my height and the ones that are, are well, children.
Nobody is going to give you a hard time for being taller or shorter than the character~

Yeah, kinda same thing for me. XD But I do like Samurott, Zebstrika, Braviary and Sawsbuck too lol. But yeah, most Pokémon in Gen 5 I'm just "meh" about. But the legendaries are cool, especially Reshiram. I already have a gijinka design for year X when I do it. XD

Meh, ran out of beads for my bead work, it'll be Friday before I can get out to buy some more.
I've been sort of losing the inspiration to cosplay my main cosplay, but after watching some people talk about him and looking at some pictures has giving me a bit more want. But now it's making me wish I had one of his main outfits though.

Well, I finally made my crossplay decision. Imma do it. I wanted to do either Tomoe or Mizuki from Kamisama Hajimemashita and I was so undecided until I got the brilliant idea of wandering around as Tomoe with a butterfly net. ... I don't know why the prospect of carrying around a butterfly net is so appealing to me, but I DO WHAT I WANT and I want to carry around a butterfly net. XD

I was originally setting out to make a "realistic" version of a cosplay, i.e using texturized, rough materials such as coarse denim in place of the light blue colors and etc. But lately my brain just KEEPS ADDING STUFF (so far have extra belt bucklet, faux fur and lots of extra seams and buttons), and it's moving further and further away from looking anything like the character I started out with. Contrary to my usual cosplay opinions, I can live with that.

My friend told me my Morgiana wig is the exact color of Simba's mane. Which is now making me think of a Simba gijinka...which is also making me think of the problem that I don't crossplay and I can't make him female because then he won't have a mane!

Being a cosplayer is so hard! XD
