>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.
Convention Line-Up: Dragon*Con 2016
Planned Costumes:
Scarlet Witch (All New All Different Marvel), Fix-it Faerie (Original Design), Pirate Duck (Original Design), Generic Jedi (Star Wars)

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

So I volunteered to help my friend make his costume for a con coming up in 70 days. Regardless of the fact that I haven't even started making mine yet. We went fabric shopping for some of his materials on Tuesday and didn't get the main fabric we needed, because this is cosplay and nothing goes how you plan for it to. We looked at his coat pattern and apparently it calls for 5 3/4 yards for a size medium. We are planning on making the outside jacket with a double layer of fabric and the inner shirt/vest with a single layer of the fabric. So in essence, we need something like 15 or 17 yards of this one fabric, just to be safe. It's basically sold out on the website (1 yard is available, with a 2 yard minimum order of the fabric), so either we go around from store to store buying all they have or we wait for it to restock on the website and hope it comes in time to work on.

Why am I this involved and stressed over someone else's cosplay? D:

PS: Simplicity patterns are 5 for $5 at Joanns right now! I totally bought 10 of them, because, you know, patterns~

Cosplay groups are hard to find when you don't have many friends who like cosplay. It's hard to meet people during cons who aren't either pumped up on sugar or ttly srs bsns, and while it's nice to talk to people on forums, you don't really get to meet anyone, never mind anyone nearby who you can hang out and talk with.

Cosplay friends from high school have drama, or I get struck by Sudden Intimidation and I back out at the last second. I'm so immature, but not immature enough to hang out with 14-year-olds all the time. I'm just in an awkward spot, and that's hurting not only my social life, but my cosplay stuff as well.

And that's what's on my mind about cosplay.

Fabric shopping tomorrow!~ At the big fabric store and not the smaller one close to my place (My friend is giving me a ride) Gonna pick up the fabric for Jin and Slade tomorrow. Possibly also the trim for Seymour's robe and obi if I find something for a good price. Oh and more craft foam. ^^;Just...why is fabric so expensive! Jin and Seymour are more important to get done but I don't want to bus it back there for the metalic fabric for Slade thats only sold there....

I prefer not to spend 100$ on just fabric tomorrow T_T

Well am trying to embroider the patch/crest for my Trauma Center Derek Stiles cosplay, it is so frustrating at times but it is getting easier.

I lost one needle somewhere and I keep accidentally stabbing myself with them. I hardly sew anything by hand.

My costume will be coming back in the mail today! Yes!
I need to give my grandma a thank you-present for sewing it for us. *sniff*
I no longer cosplay.
