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

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 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.

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~

I can help somewhat I think.... Also try typing the english name into it and see what common symbols pop up and you can use it to figure out the name of the item? I used that to find Kuroko no Basuke stuff on there. There is also these:

Taobao Store list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...0X2tJbkE#gid=0

Taobao Dictionary: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...WwzT EE#gid=0

Good luck!~

Ordered a new Dino wig... because I hate the one I currently have. Also, after I finish my paper gonna get back to working on Slade and Seymour!~ I want that obi done tomorrow. T_T

Ah! We share the same pain!

As much as I want it to snow, I don't want it to. It's too cold to spray paint the sheet of craft foam I need to finish Yoh's oracle bell, and if I paper-mache Syaoran's sword, it will never dry. I guess I'll work on modifying Yusuke's shirt and finish Syaoran's cloak tomorrow. Possibly mold Panty's crown and find a solution to Cain's cross if I don't run out of time or get lazy

So since Eva is taking me SO LONG to finish ... I've kinda got burnt out on working on her DX

Due to this, I've been going days without touching it, and I feel like that is time wasted. I've been trying to finish her so I can go onto other costumes that I'm excited about doing, but at this rate, I'll never get her finished, and I'll be way super duper behind on costumes for the year.

So, I've decided that since I don't need Eva done for another 4+ months, that she is going to become my 'side project', and I'm going to focus more on my other costumes, so hopefully I can get caught up with things.

Plus this way, I'm finally getting to work on the costumes I'm excited about, I won't need to FORCE myself to work on Eva, but she'll still eventually get done =D

I really normally don't do this with costumes, but if this ends up working, I may start doing all of my costumes this way, haha. At least I won't get bored with one costume cuz I'll be working on more than just one ... now we'll just have to wait and see if I can prioritize right XD
