Oh, and does anyone have an idea how to make a tail stand up with wire? I want to know because I'm modifying my Luxray tail.
Sort of like this http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/20...wt-d3c9r6m.jpg

Like how they did theirs.
I think they sewed it to the back of their outfit

The wire is used for shaping, like to make the tail able to bend and such and sewing it to the cosplay will keep it up and not dragging on the ground because usually the wire isn't strong enough to hold the tail up by itself.

Ah, okay, thanks. Luckily I just found a tutorial.

Fuck I hate cutting narrow strips of fabric. Realllly hard to get it to not look sloppy for the diffusing fabric for Quorra. And I continue to think my entire torso armour looks like a hot mess. No way in hell I'm getting a workmanship award unless it's for electronics. ....which are mostly invisible underneath the fabric strips anyway.

So I found out I won't have a tutoring job this semester. >_< This screws over my cosplay plans so much. I'm going to need to cut corners wherever I can now in order to have enough money for Otakon as well.

So it's looking like I'll have to make my own patches for Agent Hill. There are ZERO rubber/silocone SHIELD patches on the market. >_< Luckily I'm derping around with some super-nice casting silicone right now, and it's giving me ideas.

DO IT. PLEASE. My feels depend on it!
You are also making me want to cosplay Koenma Jr.

Considering cosplaying one of the new Pokemon starters, Chespin. Super cute and I have green fabric left over from Syaoran's cape so I could make his leaf hat thing. I also already have the wig. Hmmmmm.

Also I need to get on ordering stuff for Yusuke and start modfying it.

Overlocked the edges of my skirt material..... And spend as much time cleaning the velvet fluff out of my sewing machine. I haven't done that since getting the machine, but still... I think I even have it up my sinuses. Such lush fabric though....

Man, I never knew what a bitch body paint is to handle when you're being forced to use it in large quantities. It's like, it's not clear how many shades of green even exist until you're having to try to match your green body paint from your face to the green body paint on your arms. But, on the brightside, after buying three different cake makeup palettes, I FINALLY got one that will work, when I blend a layer of white into it. Phew. Why you such a pain in the ass, body paint?
