Yeah, I may have had good experiences but... you never know when the first bad one will occur. D:

Anyways, it was a synthetic red, iromuji, hitoe (but that's fine since I live in Florida and would like to avoid extra weight) for $20 - this one just so happened to be on sale for $12! With EMS shipping, around $40 is tacked on right there. I ended up, against my better judgment, using their cheaper $20 shipping... So let's see if my better judgement is right or wrong this time around. ^^;
I always use Shinei because they have so much cheaper stuff than other stores. I've ordered from them 10+ times and never had a problem.

Oh that sounds cool!
Well, I've always used the cheapest shipping option (Economy SAL, max 2 kg) because the others seem to be at least double the price... and I've always got my packages in around 2 weeks time with Economy SAL.

So I bought a base wig... now to decide if I wanna go with drawstrings for the pigtails or a clip. >>;; Not too sure how I feel about a drawstring for high pigtails and the long ones are a bit more pricy. D; Decisions, decisions.

So my Chizuru wig is apparently already delivered according to my tracking number. Ummmm I ordered it yesterday, how is that even possible? I sent an email asking about it. Hopefully I will get a reply soon. >_>

It could be just cruddy animation, but they look pretty open... WHAT? WHAT IS THIS - I DON'T EVEN... I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE. DO I FOLLOW THE ANIME OR THE MANGA? *headdesk*
I can add to the confusion! xD

I watched more RuroKen anime yesterday and in some scenes in the filler episodes his sleeves looked so much like on a woman's kimono... like here and here. Notice on the latter shot with Kaoru that both their sleeves look pretty much the same.. hjkfdshkjs.

FFFFFFFF- WHAT'S GOING ON?! UP IS DOWN, RIGHT IS LEFT, 2+2=FISH HDJAHFYCIE

Ive come to a decision. The manga is now my primary reference. Everything's more consistent there. -w-

My group has been seriously discussing doing kimono versions of our xxxHolic characters, so I'm really glad this conversation popped up now! Between following it and reading up on Blood_Sword's tutorial, I feel like - well, certainly not even close to an expert, but like someone who probably won't end up making a very silly mistake. Thanks, guys!

(Seriously, Blood_Sword, your tutorial is awesome!)

Yay! So much art shows them in kimono, so we thought, "Why not?" Plus the design we used for our Yuuko involves a very complicated wig, so we'd like another option.

And kimono are so pretty ~ <3

Just bought some nice boots online for my SAO Lisbeth cosplay & LoL Caitlyn. I hope they fit right but I typically wear a size 9 for boots so HOPEFULLY, they do fit! Should arrive next week.

Hey Kell! Kimonos sound awesome! Is it true Nai wants to join your Valkyria plans? I've been stalking your tumblr for updates....

My big revelation this week was that I can try selling my blonde wig because I don't actually need it for anything. But a wig for Pam would work for my Zelda fairy, too. Now to get my camera working so I can post photos on the interwebs.

So the theater Professor here at my University granted me access to their sewing machines in the theater room.

I would obviously just need to bring in my own materials and things like that but I think I just found a sanctuary to work on cosplays!

So my medieval history professsor had us say a random fact about ourselves so I mentioned costuming(without going into the whole cosplay thing) and he asked me if I made period-style clothing. Well then, later on, I found out that one of the papers that we have to do in class could be a "creative" assignment, which could be anything. Which is making me think of making a cosplay of some sort. I'm thinking something Joan of Arc related. This is not good. XD

Huh.. that sure seems weird. :S

Then again whenever I've got a tracking number on eBay it never updates. lol

That's usually a safe decision to make.
