This week/weekend is going to be dedicated to working on cosplay. Gonna go pick up my lining for Seymour tomorrow!~ (All 13 yrds of it... *sweatdrop*) Then on Friday, I'm going to pick up fabric for Jin (4 more yrds for the hakama T_T) and craft foam (for armor and wig). Also, someone wants to play basketball with me in prep for cosplaying Kuroko no Basuke, idk if I'm going though....

So Saturday, my friend and I are having prop making day. He has the tools to work with wood and is going to help/teach me to make my Seymour staff and Dominator (hopefully...). Then Sundays I can work on sewing Jin and other stuff.
Working on: Thorin Oakenshield - The Hobbit, Jon Snow - GoT, Deathstroke - Teen Titans
Events: Hoku Kon 15, Amazing Hawaii Comic Con, Hawaii Amine Matsuri

One of my friends who also likes to cosplay says she's got a short black wig that she doesn't want anymore and asked if I wanted it. She said she'd bring it to me in a box, since it might look funny if I walked around at school holding a wig xD (and I bet it'd be crushed in my backpack x_x )

It isn't perfect, but its the first dark dark blue with random, but not too random, flower design in red. Ish. They're more pink, with some orange, but that is workable with some careful dye application.

I'm a bit giddy over this, I've been looking for a tie like this for months.
I totally understand. Why is it so hard to find a dark tie with the right red floral design on it? I found one on eBay that simply needed a little Sharpie to make the design completely red.
Next Up: DragonCon 2015
First Doctor (Bathing Beauty), Tenth Doctor (The Christmas Invasion), Gaz Membrane, Death

2015 Plans: Ohayocon, MARcon, DragonCon

I think the difficulty comes from the fact that I'm looking for a tie that is nearly 6-7 years out of style. I don't even know how many seasons of fashion whims that is. I think I'll try the sharpie suggestion, instead of the paint I was originally going to try. Seems less messy.

And I'm once again working on "improving" my designs for my and my husband's MLP Renaissance costumes. My Pinkie Pie Pirate now looks like Captain Cupcake - whole bunches of flounce. And his Twilight Sparle robes are now going to be multi-layered with minimal flounce... But definitely more impressive than originally envisioned.
Convention Line-Up: Dragon*Con 2016
Planned Costumes:
Scarlet Witch (All New All Different Marvel), Jayna (Wonder Twins, Super Friends),
Fix-it Faerie (Original Design), 1950s Housewife Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls... ish)

I think American Cosplay Paradise doesn't like me. Every time I attempt to register it doesn't work, lol.

So I have two Pokemon sitting next to me that need to be carved before the paper mache, sanding, painting and all that good stuff.

My jacket for my Tidus genderbend highly dislikes my sewing machine.

Yush! My eldest sister said she might be able to buy me the cosplay wig I want.

Also...I'm really hoping that my mom will like my first con...and even if she doesn't (but at the same time can't see anything wrong with it) she'll continue letting me cosplay. A couple of days ago when I was telling her about the wig I wanted she said that she would buy a wig from Party City. And when I told reminded her what was wrong with store-bought wigs, she said that (exact quote)"it's only going to be this one time." That got me a little afraid. I don't want to leave this community so soon after I've arrived, especially since I know I have so much potential in. I'm just became a teenager and I'm trying to write a book (I love to write and many say I'm good at it) and I'm hoping that when/if I manage to get it published, it will get good reception and sell good and the money I earn from it can fuel my cosplaying career.

Sorry, enough about that, I had to get that off of my chest.

Making humble, cute Pokémon gijinkas. <3

Stores don't seem to sell jean shorts in the winter...I guess I can wait until around spring time, or go thrifting for them :/

Wanting to check out Sakura Con, might attend Fanime instead. Also found a wig for a cosplay idea I have, but it's on Arda's restock list. Found another Arda wig that's perfect for a Final Fantasy character, but I want to wait until the next wig sale. Oh, and thought of a way to do two Legend of Zelda cosplays with the same wig!

And started researching resin molds for (eventual) Princess Daisy.

Me and my cosplay brain...

@DX: couldn't you cut and hem some pants?

Lol, technically and the thought did cross my mind. I'll just wait until Spring though, since I don't need it until May anyways

Since I ended up having extra time, I made a second attempt at sculpting Cain' cross. I made it thicker this time, so I think it will work
