Oh yes, I saw it - and thanks for the info about the collars! That didn't even occur to me! D:

That's true, it's just the weird selective nitpicker in me that's objecting. The one that says "You can't fabric paint the designs on Zelda's dress - fabric paint didn't exist in medieval time frames!" yet has no problem fabirc painting something else on the same costume. You know, the big ole hyprocrital nitpicker that lurks within the back of all cosplayer's brains somewhere. XD

The only thing that's throwing me off of jumping on it is the shipping cost. The shipping tag makes me want to flinch and heavily consider making one on my own. So now I'm going back and forth on it - which I really shouldn't seeing how fast kimono can go. Either way it will probably cost the same amount, one will just require a bit more work. STOP BEING SO INDECISIVE BRAIN.

Ah okay, good.

PFFFF hahaha I totally know what you mean! XD

What site is the kimono on and how much is the shipping and how much is the kimono itself? If you don't mind telling of course.

I would be thinking the exact same thing!


I finally got my room cleaned up this weekend. Which means I now have somewhere I can sit and relax and work on finishing Gaz up. It's simply a case of cutting the toes off the socks and figuring out how to keep the ends from fraying while keeping their elasticity so they fit around my upper arms. At least my Fangirl's socks will be easier to do.... in theory.

It's amazing how much better a room feels when you actually clean it up. Clutter isn't just physical it would seem.

Vest sewing pattern comes in today. Once I get it I can start work on Alois's Vest. Have to wait till I get my allowance to get the fabric for the vest and Saya's skirt & collar. My con is 5 months away...glad I got time.

gmskdldnldksnfsf. I finally picked up the bracelets commission I had sitting in the mailroom here at college and they look so awesome. *_* One of the pins that were holding the chains to the bracelet itself fell off(the box did have a dent in the side...) but that is easily fixible. Hopefully the repainting I do in the same area won't look so obvious either.

HAHAHAHA. I promised myself to never do school uniforms (more like fukus) ever again. But I do agree though. Regularish clothed people are easier to make for because you can most likely just go to a thrift store and buy them. 8D LOL

I haven't been catch up with any new animes at all lately. I've been reading mangas and even then I haven't catch up with any other mangas. The only old ones I do keep reading are: Naruto, Oresama Teacher, Skip Beat, Kuroko no Baseket, and sometimes 'Say you Love me' plus Fairy Tail. >>;; THOUGH, YEAHHHH. Well when Sailor Moon comes out again, I'm totally watching that one. HAHAHAHA. Lately I play more video games than I watch anime/read manga now. >>;; Too busy with work to be able to do all of those three. *lesigh*
Well it doesn't even have to be like, plain clothes you can just buy, like I'm doing Nami from one of the One Piece games, here's a picture: http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../Namimusou.jpg ... and that's not really something you could buy, so I have to make it, but it's super easy, and will still look cute. I never cosplay something that's so easy I could just buy the pieces, I try to find simple outfits that are unique so I'm forced to make it, but is still simple enough that it will take no time at all. I also like doing Chii (Chobits) cosplays, cuz those are the same way.

But yeah, game characters always seem to have much more complicated outfits XD So I can see where your heading off in the wrong direction LOL More anime!

YES!~ Found a wig I could use for 'in the zone' Murasakibara and a wig for 2!P France~ Also, since my classes got canceled today is a good day to catch up on my homework then to bust out the ironing board to do the pleats for Jin and the trim for Seymour

No problem. Glad to be of help. Er, maybe I should go post it in the Tutorial section or something. *Sweatdrop*

I am so weak. ._. I ended up buying a wig for Chizuru instead of buying Saber's sandals. Oh well, I was going to need to buy it at some point. I just ended up buying it early.

Got my leaves for Poison Ivy, but I'm feeling much too weak from the flu to work on gluing them on my base... I need to hurry up though, cuz Nashville Anime Day is this weekend.

However, I am excited for my face paint to come in by the end of the week!
It's Kryolan Aquacolor and I've used it for my Vriska cosplay, so I know it'll be great quality.
