Convention is coming in something like two months and I still don't know what I want to really do or what I gotta make for my own costumes or upgrades I gotta make. Why is that you might ask? Partly because EVERYONE ELSE IS LAYING THEIR CRAP ON ME. Seriously holy crap I'm bogged down with these requests. Make me this helmet in one week, or hey dude I got this idea make this and this and we'll go from there. Hey hows my helmet coming along? I want the horns to look just like that in that one picture... I get it! Geez and this is a tough semester for me and I'm busy getting all this stuff laid onto me two months before the con! But on the the flip side it's not so bad I guess...those guys get to live out my dreams of doing really cool costumes that I actually like since they have the resources to actually finish it while I'm just a dirt poor college student that has a few marginal skills in making stuff. Oh well I'm just a bit stressed and quite surprised I have no real firm plans yet for costumes yet and ugh. Just under the freaking gun the pressure is getting to me.

I think I wanna do a traveler from Journey. The atmosphere of that game is safgskdfasdkljfa and I just love the way the travelers move. *u*

(; w ; )*sighs* i want to go fabric shopping, but i have to wait until either this Friday or the beginning of February to gather all my remaining fabric for the princess. I'm thinking of at least seeing how much i have left over from my check Friday to decide whether or not i can.

i also need fabric for sheryl's top, but i'll definitely need to wait till the beginning of February for that.

@Emmisu, o lordy! i can relate to that one! school is looking super busy so far and i'm already stressing out about balancing my homework and finding time when i finish and start on my cosplay.

I have so much work I have to do. I have to make Alice's apron, and finish her skirt. I need to make Merlin's boots and belt, and finish off his jacket and pants, by adding a collar and a waistband. And I still need to get fabric to make Rosette's Holy Woman dress.

And I don't even know if I'll even be able to go to Katsucon at this point. So Half of me is saying "Just wait, save your money for now. Find out if you can even find a ride to get there first." and the other half is "Buy all the stuff now, that way you have it. And if you end up going to Katsu you'll have the stuff already there ready for you to cram this stuff out, and if not, well at least you can spend more time on it before your next con."
Next con: Katsucon

What I'm working on:
(New) Mina Ashido (RPG) - My Hero Academia
(New) Shy Makishima - Marginal #4
(New) Haruka Tenoh (Cafe) - Sailor Moon
(New) Keito Hasumi (Dead Man's) - Ensemble Stars
(New-Maybe) Yoshiko Tsushima (Valentine's Day) Love Live!

Despite the fact that for $55, all I got was relatively cheap, it still makes me want to cry because I find I don't like spending money on anything not related to cosplay.
Heh, I know the feeling. xD

I think I'm going to bow out of the Masquerade at OhayoCon this weekend. I was going to be in the Found Item category anyway and it's going to take up the whole day. I think I'm going to wait to do a Masquerade when I have a costume that I've made and am super proud of. I'm proud of my Wolfwood, but I want to enjoy the con and go to the panels!

Speaking of Wolfwood, I have completely misplaced the paper I bought to use for the finishing touches for the Confessional. The Mod-Podge was with it too. So, at lunch today I'm going to run up to Jo-Ann's and get some more. At leas I'll know I'll have enough paper this way. I may pick up another foam board so I can do the roof pieces in one piece each instead of gluing scraps together.

Planning to get started on Richter's weapons this weekend. I foresee many hours sanding.

I should really look into a power sander.

Looking up as many bow tutorials as I can so I can start thinking about making Viola's bow. And making it con safe on top of everything else. >_> Also need to make arrows safe too since I do want them to have the pointed tip. Blah, I need to look up ways to make foam appear to look like wood.

Also decided to just go with fur for Viola's back thing. It would be much easier and it would save me a LOT of headache along the way. Why does this girl have so many little details that need to be done...

Got my shoes for Panty, now all I have to do is sew the dress, which shouldn't be so hard.
Gotta start losin' the extra winter pounds before my nex big con though. Ahh I've been so lazy about that. Back to the crosstrainer it is. ;___;

I love Jo-Ann's! They had the paper on sale 5 for $1. Only $2 to replace the paper I misplaced. And I got a bigger bottle of Mod-Podge for the price of the smaller for thanks to the 50% off coupon. Love it!

>3< Cautious optimism! I managed to find a pair of over-alls for Ritsuka today, and they were only a dollar! Tonight or tomorrow I should be ordering his wig and contacts, hopefully his ears and tail if I can get a few extra bucks together. And then he'll be all done! >3<
Which means, I can put all my effort into finding some cheaper shoes for Ivan, since I don't want to pay 45 for a pair that is said to be murder on the feet.
Hopefully it won't be much longer until I can get Ivan's cosplay fully together, if I can then I can actually have a chance at making Connor before A-Kon.

Blarg... I tried to do a test of my Queen Mab make up, with what I had on hand, since I have to make myself look really really pale... like, White Queen from Alice in Wonderland white. While still looking regal.

Sadly, I look like the love child of a mime and a hooker. So, that's a bit of a fail, and I'm going to have to watch a lot more make up tutorials. And buy better make up, because the cheap stuff itches.

The pieces to my Sailor Moon wig came in today! I need to perfect getting the wig on because there's always this nasty divot in the back where my head is too flat. :P

I'll get it, though. This is my frist time handling wigs. :P
