Found out that my cosplay idol is going to a con I'm attending this year, so now I'm motivated to work on my Rise and Hope cosplay. I hope it turns out well!

I ended up sorting through all of the fabric I had and I seriously have wayyyyy too much duck canvas. =_= What in the world am I going to do with it!? Surprisingly though, I found a bunch of fabrics that I could use for Chizuru! Like I almost have enough for the whole cosplay! 0_0 To make matters even better, I have enough for most of the fabric parts of Morgiana too. ^_^

*sigh* I'm feeling conflicted. My friend wants to borrow my short, slightly curly blonde wig for a convention in February, which I was fine with until she said she wanted to straighten it. I can understand that it's pretty flippy in the back, but I was hoping she wouldn't mess with the bangs since I was planning to use that wig to cosplay Jadeite from Sailor Moon next year. The bangs on the wig already have the perfect somewhat-curliness that his do, and If she straightened it I don't know if I'd be able to get it back to the way it is considering it's too short to really curl.

I don't want to be a douchy friend and say she can borrow it with conditions attached, especially when I wasn't planning on cosplaying Jadeite until next year, but I just really don't want her messing with the bangs...

be honest that is not really borrowing something if you change it. Straitening it could even damage it,and it's hard to get it to go back if it's already perfect for you. perhaps she needs to buy one if she wants to be creative .

There is nothing wrong with saying NO in a situation like that; or conditions for that matter. It is your wig after all, and you have other plans for it. It's like letting someone borrow your clothes. What if you borrowed a white shirt and then ty-died it and gave it back? Borrow implies returning in the same condition. BUT at least he said something about straightening before hand. However she asked to borrow not if you would give it to her.

IMO...

If I were you, I would tell her that I want the bangs to not be touched if you are okay with her straightening the back. It is your wig that you paid for so you chose what should be done with it. You don't sound douchy, it is your wig and not hers. If she doesn't like it, well she can get her own wig. If my friends borrow any of my wigs, I always say I want it back in the same condition with no changes.

Oh I could! 0= Now I need to think of what I would need pink/yellow/red shoes for.

Seriously debating whether to make Chizuru's haori out of the suiting fabric I have. If I do, then I would make her two kimono layers out of it too. However, the hakama pants would be twill since I need to gradient dye it and the suiting fabric is polyester so I can't use that. But then the pants would be a completely different fabric. I don't know if that would look right or not. Gah. It's hard being a cosplayer.

I have come to the conclusion that Ciel has and always will be my favorite cosplay of mine.
He's the ONLY one that every time I try to do him well and look in the mirror, always think, dang, I'm pretty good at this.
Ririchiyo I worry about since my eyes are really light and I need to make myself look super adorable to make it work.
Alois doesn't flatter me.
Gumi I make some AWKWARD expressions for and never think my goggles look quite right with the wig.
Italy doesn't work on me at all anymore.
Keep in mind this doesn't mean I think my Ciel is perfect by any means (heck, I never wear the costume I got for him in the first place anymore and won't have another real version for a couple of months, in addition to being pretty bad at makeup), he's just the costume I have the very least insecurities with (the only ones, I think, are my eye color again though it isn't as bad and my weight; I'd like to be light enough to be picked up for pictures but I'm fine with not being so for now).
Which reminds me...I ought to try to sell some costumes and wigs I'm not using anymore. >n<; Especially that N. Italy wig and my other Ciel wig.

<rant> I think I need to stop adding cosplayers to my FB. I keep making "friends" with kids at least 8 years my junior, whom only talk with me for the small time that photos are taken and then leave me in the dust as soon as the convention is over. When I try to interject myself, on FB and outside of convention time, I'm disregarded unless they need something from me. *sigh* Maybe I'm getting too old for the cosplay-friends nonsense and need to just stop adding kids in the hopes that they might want to hang out past the convention season. </rant>

Just realized I have NO IDEA where my Duke Devlin headband is. How the EFF did I lose my headband a month before the con?! I always kept it with my wig! This is bad T_T

Just got back from an awesome cosplay photoshoot, in which I was the photographer.
>3< The shots came out awesome and I made a friend in the process who talked me into doing another cosplay.
I've been planning it for awhile, but put it off due to absolutely needing someone to cosplay with, since my eyesight will be rather limited.

Debating which cosplay I should wear for my final photoshoot before going back to college should be. I'm debating between Heroine from Fate/Extra or Badbye version Gumi. I'm leaning more towards Heroine right now despite the fact that the wig will be a pain in the butt to untangle after the shoot.

I and another group member are determined to learn how to sew, conveniently when Joann's has a $1 pattern sale.

Total of 52 patterns obtained today. I think we have patterns for everything ever.
