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:

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

Finally finished Air. Dang it Key and your feels.... I really want to cosplay Haruko or Misuzu(the version of her near the end in the white dress). I could possibly fit in Haruko due to the simplicity of her outfit and my friend is getting a long red wig...

I hope I'm not being too ambitious trying to customize a wig for Krad from DNAngel. Hopefully, I won't hate myself by the end of the con for wearing such an annoying thing.

Soooo another con has ended. Aside from feeling like I've been hit by a train now since it was three days of dressing up and very little sleep, I had a blast. I have to say, I have never felt more loved in cosplay than I have in pony cosplays. Everyone absolutely loved my Derpy and Rarity - heck, I was even asked for autographs in-character. Try to ignore that Rarity and Derpy's signatures look similar but yeah. XD It was really fun, and I think I love the brony community even more now. X3

My only regret - meeting Nicole Oliver and not being able to string two sentences together. For real, I wasn't actually nervous until I was like right there at the table. Then I was just like, "I DREW SOMETHING FOR YOU." And Awkward Rarity awkwardly handed her a drawing. XD She's so nice and funny, though. X3

Np~ I love buying wigs off taobao. ^^; I use Taobaonow or Taobaoring usually.

I would love too!~... but I'm at University now which has me in debt... can't see myself spending 1000$+ to get my butt there right now. I'm considering going to grad school up there...(So maybe in two-three years)

I feel like I should know more about TaoBao than I do. It seems like such a useful site, because cheaper cosplay products.

And I feel you on the university debt thing. .-. It's still early, but are you looking at any particular grad schools yet?

Taobao is an awesome site for cheap cosplay stuff. I don't have pierced ears and its pretty hard to find stuff that cater to that in the states but I've found a few places on Taobao that do.

I'm lucky I went the cheap route by going UH's Community College program. I should only end up owing $10,000 in loans when I get my BA. I'm currently looking at Washington State University....not a lot of schools on the west coast have what I'm interested in sadly. (European/Middle East History)

So I realized the other day that I have a skirt that almost perfectly matches the skirt Eponine wears in the Les Misérables movie. However, it's black and I need it to be more of a brown. I'm not really keen with the idea of dyeing it, though, as I wear the skirt relatively often and really like it black. And I can't seem to find another one anywhere. So frustrating! >_<

I'm now in the process of doing major brain surgery on this sailor moon wig. Let the long process begin!

I can't find my bottle of fake blood. >_< Dang it, I was planing on doing a Badbye version Gumi mini-shoot today but I needed that blood. Guess I probably will do a Heroine shoot in order to test how the tattoo paper works. Now to wait for my sister to get home...
