So i got a wig for Gasai Yuno, i'm kind of worried as to whether it will look as i think it will or be of good quality. (i spaz like this all the time though.) I don't think it comes styled, but thats quite alright, i'll style it. That just means i might need to buy sme Got2B

I'll have to wait and see whether or not it's good when it arrives.XD

I'm kind of looking forward to doing the makeup for her character.

How I ever convinced myself to read five different mangas at a time, I will never know. I do know, however, that I want to cosplay from every single one! Why does this always happen to me???
On a less obsessive note, all I have to do tomorrow is continue to work on my science fair project, so I have most of the day to do some cosplay stuff^^

If it helps, I'm in the middle of something like 7 animes. xD Madoka, [K], Amnesia, Cuticle Detective Inaba, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, and some more. Some of them because they're still in progress, most just out of plain laziness.

I'm reading three mangas right now, Pokémon, D. Gray man, and Durarara. Yup...


Anyway, my costume is nearly finished. I just need to get my hands on a wig--and fast. My first con is in a week and I think the wig I want will probably take three days to get here. Two at the very least. I don't really care I just want it.

What's on my mind: My wigs still look gigantic on me. What's wrong with my head. What is wrong with my head.

What kinda wig do you want? Even the fastest shipping I've ever had (The Five Wits) took three days, I don't think you're gonna get faster than that XD

Taobao is still confusing us. xD; Mostly how to search for things, at the moment.



In other news, patterns and I continue not to get along. D: Queen Frostine dress: I took out 5 or 6 inches from my bodice mockup that I'd made from a pattern. Kirito jacket: it's probably 6 inches too big all around and each sleeve has about 2 inches of material too much that I'm not sure how to hide. Also, the jacket is maybe 8 inches too long. Erza vest (which will be extended into a jacket) : 4 inches too wide.

I am sewing with 5/8 seam allowance, I've measured myself and cut my pattern pieces to the correct size. I measured myself before putting on my fake cleavage, so if anything it should be a little too small.

This is why I can't bear to get good at sewing with patterns. D:

this one - http://www.animestuffstore.com/wig-1...-pr-23390.html
I've heard good things about animestuffstore/Purple Plum (well MOSTLY good things) and I figured they wouldn't take too long to arrive at my house since they're based in IL and I'm in FLA.

Back from Ohayocon, first time at that one, it was a pretty good time. Group I went with was fun even if they weren't all animes. Now all I want to do is cosplay...

(On another note, ugh. I'm so torn right now, because I just saw a picture of myself from the con and my immediate was "wow I desperately need to lose weight", but I'm also not stupid on knowledge about doing that and I know 99% of the time it doesn't work/you can't keep weight off for more than 5 years, that my body is built a certain way/etc. and I've been working so hard to accept the way I look/am and I just keep going back and forth between fat acceptance for myself and "lol nope not at all" sigh sigh sigh.)

Gah. My friend put up pictures of her Morgiana cosplay and she looks so good and it makes me feel like my Morgiana stinks. :<

Yeah, I need to get more confident about my cosplay skills. >_<

Also wish the weather would get warmer so I can spray paint Saber's sword. Totally in the home stretch right now. After the paint it is all the little details from there.

I don't really search much; usually, I rely on finding a good store and limiting myself to their offerings. The search tool is in the upper right. You can use Wikipedia to find the Chinese names for certain series. I mostly use search nowadays if I see someone on ebay covered up another logo, in order to find the "original" (not necessarily the original store, but at least wherever that guy stole it from), as well as to gauge the prevalence of certain stock photos.

Trying to make the wrist cuff thingamajig for my cosplay but I'm not sure how to make them and I don't know if my cat is trying to help me or distract me by looking, sniffing and sitting of my stuff xD

Hopefully. I'm definitely a bit relieved to know this doesn't seem to be a usual occurrence, though. I wasn't sure if I was simply overreacting or something.

This... is the smartest thing I've heard all day. Thanks for the great tip! I will definitely pass it on to my friend~
