Why did I have to order all of my cosplay from the other side of the world.
My cosplay is going on a world tour, and will be here next year at this rate... (~.~*)

Cosplay work day! I roped one of my group members into joining our Loveless group as Ritsuka. Woo! So now we're heading out to pick up another million yards of cotton bandages and more dye. ^_^; I'm also going to make a new tail for Seimei. The one he has now is just a bit too small.

And at some point I have a ton of sanding to do on Richter's weapons...time to be productive!

Do what you love and eventually they'll just have to deal with the fact that their hate is unproductive and meaningless. There will be PoC cosplayers and there's nothing they can or should want to do about it.

The reason hate stands out is because that minority is really vocal, when the majority of us who love your work don't yell and scream because we should be encouraging to each other and we shouldn't need praise and attention to practice common courtesy.

It's fully understandable if you don't want to be one of the fighters against their words, because it's hurtful and cruel and mean. You aren't responsible for fixing it and you don't owe anyone anything, of course. It would just be a real shame to see you forced to quit a hobby you love because of the behavior of a bunch of thugs.

Laser tag with the cosplay group tonight; first time I get to wear my newest costume out. Me and a friend even stopped by a convinience store the other day and bought vitamin water, specifically for the purpose of printing out Reach labels and putting it on them to take with us to laser tag.

A Miss Martian and a Kid Flash drinking the Reach stuff loooool I'm really, really hoping someone who is there tonight is going to understand.

Right now I'm sorta just longing to cosplay Neptune from Hyperdimension Neptunia but knowing I probably couldn't do it without screwing up... it's relatively simple I guess compared to some cosplays but I just know I wouldn't be able to pull it off. U__U It'd be fun and challenging, though. Even if I ended up having to commission the main piece or something (there's still the headpieces, accessories and the unique shoes, I'd want them to look good so it'd be a bit of a challenge I think)

Plus, there's deciding between this version or this version... (both have the same leg/footwear but I couldn't find a full image of the first)

Lost my Duke Devlin headband six days before Katsucon. Making the new one sucks, I forgot how tedious it was X.X

Grr, I'm kinda stuck right now. I currently have 3 costumes I'm working on, Weiss, Eva, and Black Cat, and I can't really work on any of them right now.

Weiss is for my bf, and I can't work on that unless he's here, which isn't a lot, and right now he's visiting his parents, so he won't be back til late Monday night.

Eva I'm technically working on, but it's all waiting on liquid stitch to dry, so I only get to 'work on it' for 5 minutes at a time, then I have to wait 2 hours for the ls to be dry so I can move onto the next part.

Black Cat is pretty much done except for the top, and I can't work on that til I get a new bra so I can shape the skin tight cat suit top accordingly.

So as of right now, and for the next 2+ days, I have NOTHING I can work on, on any of these costumes ... however, I do have the material to start on my Nami costume, so I could work on that, but if I don't manage to finish it in the next couple of days, then I'm suddenly going to have 4 costumes to work on, which for me, is twice the amount I usually work on at once, and I'm scared I'll start feeling too overwhelmed.

So what do I do?

I've been fighting a sinus infection all week, which means I haven't gotten anything done.

Well, almost nothing. I started assembling the hat for my Pinkie Pie Pirate costume... which is essentially me going "eh, I'll wing it. How hard can it be to make a pirate hat?"

I managed to make the hat, vaguely based off her Gala dress hat... however, the amount of flounce, floof, and general stuff I have for this is going to be somewhat epic. I've got cotton candy floof trim, tiny gemstones, ribbons, blue bias tape that matches the bodice, and miniature Venitian lace in blue. Then, to top it off, there shall be a spray of pink on pink feathers coming from one of the turned up sides.

Also, I have just found that clothes pins (the old fashioned wood ones) work great for holding trim to felt while the tacky glue dries...

Pore strips hurt like a BITCH to pull off, but it wasn't until yesterday when I realized how visible blackheads are under body paint. -sigh- The things we do for accuracy.

I finished straightening my Luthien from Arda today. It might need a good run under hot water to get it how I want it but overall I'm really happy with it.

I was desperately hoping that my Stocking cosplay would get here yesterday so I could wear it for the date auction since our theme was Superheros, that didn't happen. So I'll have to save it for another day.

Now I wait until Monday. I feel slightly productive.

I've itching to do a casual Summer!Kenny cosplay, but I fear that I'll get judged since my plans for it are rather plain and, well, casual.
And since it's a summer version, that I'll be sneered at for having him wear short sleeves without fur.
Now I'm too nervous and unsure about even doing it.
----------
My Ritsuka wig is taking forever to send out and I just really want it now, and I have no patience, but I don't even think they sent it out. It's not supposed to get here til the end of the month, but I want it now. //obnoxious whine.
