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...
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.

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.

Kell- just imagining you guys with 52 patterns in your arms has seriously made my night so much better. X3 I'm also jealous and wish to go fabric/pattern shopping. XD

So far...my project has been one big flop. And....I'm okay with that. I made a bit of progress with it which....is far more than I expected considering my lack of experience.
I just hope I don't screw this one up too badly because I don't have the money to buy more materials if it screws up beyond salvaging.

Although...I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm stepping on toes again. Which....sort of bothers me since I was finally getting to a place where I was almost comfortable with how I've been doing.

Haha, yeah, but considering we had zero before, it's maybe not so much? And I bought quite a few that are specifically for beginners and aren't necessarily cosplay-related. (Pattern for a Snuggie, yessss.)

LOL. Yeah, we had to stagger our buys because they had limits! XD

Since I'm almost done with Isaak's armband, I thought I'd throw on my coat for a quick progress photo! picture!

I did NOT feel like putting my 4-foot wig on for the picture though, it's still a mess from Yesterday XP

Nice! I had to stagger my purchases, too. I was practically buying them every weekend. Three to four at a time, or at least one. My latest pattern purchase was one of the new McCall's evening dress patterns. Hoping to use it for eventual Princess Bubblegum, or something else!

Snuggie for practice is great! Who else want to learn, Decus or Nai?
