The thinness I can live with, especially since I'll be wearing a juban. It actually works out better because I live in a place where it is perpetually summer, and if there's one thing I can claim to hate it's heat. It's the lightness of the red that bothers me. I don't want it to look pink with a juban. D: My mother insists I try dying it and refuses to acknowledge that synthetics don't like to take dye. Before I do anything with it, however, she's insisting I take it to my great aunt for judgement. Maybe it can be a more saturated red yet, if I can find a good poly dye.

Either way, if it doesn't work out, I'll just use it until I get a more saturated red (and hopefully I'll have a less color confused montior too!). Heck, I can even go under the excuse that I'm doing a mix of all the Kenshins - manga, anime and live action movie since the first kimono Live Kenshin wears is a super faded red-orangey thing.

EDIT: Actually, given the fact that it hasn't wrinkled, I'm pretty positive it's poly, which means it's dyable... Yeah, I can work with this. I'll edit it accordingly, use the scrap fabric I have from the hem to test how much dye I'll need and then test how the color looks over the juban. ... I'll just need to do this within two weeks after my theater work is done.

I need to meet more local cosplayers. I need a group, man. Having a cosplay partner just isn't doing it for me.

I can't wait to order the shirt I need for Alpha Jade... just need to find an inexpensive one online (or maybe in a sports store, if I'm lucky) Also, I need to get that fabric for her 3AM Dress. I'm planning to make a super long train! (If I can figure out how to, of course)

Cut my Seymour fabric! I had cut it bigger because I didn't know if it would shrink from having to dye it. Which is did, so I'm so glad I thought to cut it big.

So Wednesday, I'll can start sewing it and this weekend I'm going to go borrow my friends air brush to paint on the design!~

Hoping no one else cancels their shoot for Katsucon and that the weather is nice (at least nice for lighting)

I hope you get the best out of it and that it works out with the possible dyeing and all! If nothing else you can just say you're cosplaying a hybrid version Kenshin, as you said. xD

You can do it!

Yes! Won the sandals! Now...come to me my pretties! Along with that tie and wig. Seriously. Where are they...

EDIT: While wandering around the internet I stumbled upon this. I saw a video of a girl using it and it looked so cool! It would be great for a scene from Magi involving Morgiana. At the same time...it looks so...thick.

Today I tried out contact lenses for the first time.. it sure was an interesting experience! Feels like a whole new world of cosplay accuracy just opened its doors! <3

I wrote about it in my latest blog post if anyone is curious:
