Almost forgot that I'm not actually done with Maximilian (Valkyria Chronicles). I need to find a pair of base shoes and figure out the boot covers. White shoes whyyyy. Then there's all the armor...gah.

Yes and angular? O.o It's an arm piece and it bends to my arm when I have it on using the elastic and snaps. >.>

(edit) LOL but in all seriousness, I'm having a hard time deciding. 8D LOL OH WELL. I'll decide once the base wig I am deciding to buy gets here first before I make another move. LOL

Ok, seriously, I NEED to stop picking costume that will require me to make boot covers ... the last 4 costumes I've worked on, have had boot covers, and while I have never made boot covers before like 5 months ago, I hate them already XD With the first pair I liked it, cuz it was something new, and the second pair was ok, but they were such a pain in the ass due to crazy designs, that by the third pair I was not looking forward to them, and now that I'm on the 4th pair all I can think is 'never-a-freaking-gain'.

REFERENCES. Y U NO MATCH UP?

EDIT: FFFFF- to top it off, I'm watching episode five on YouTube and they did a dramatic wind blowing effect and I see the backs of his sleeves and they're open! Like a woman's kimono! 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*

RRRRGH, I'm just at that state with my Quorra costume where I think everything looks like a hot mess, nothing's trned out like I've wanted it and I've sunk wayyyyyy too much money in to scrap it (half a grand, to be specific, including the new makeup which was about fifty bucks). There's obviously going to be remakes to this later on because the torso armour is really far from movie-accurate (mine's sewn from pleather- not what the movie one was made from and it really shows, and I didn't get the skirt right because I stupidly thought the skirt pieces was part of the bottom shirt, NOT the armour) but I could probably stand to put the entire costume on again once it's more completed as a reassurance that I don't look like utter crap. All the costumes that I can rarely put on when working on seem to end up with me thinking it's a ton of crap that I look awful in. Or maybe I'm just a huge perfectionist with an extremely complex costume and IDK UUUGH

Yusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho? Oh my gosh, i haven't thought about that anime in forever! Thank you. ^_^ I feel the need to go find it now.

Speaking of things from interesting places, I was thinking of purchasing a cosplay piece I can't recreate myself from Cosplayholic.com. It's made-to-order, so I was wondering if anyone had experience with these guys before I go placing an order and spending money I don't have.

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. >_>

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.
