Yeeey, my big sister said that the next time she comes over to visit, and I wash her car and do a GOOD job, she'll give me $20. ^w^ enough to buy Jolteon's wig. I hope she revisits very soon. c:

Woo! My wig head and clamps arrived in the mail today. I now have enough heads that I can style and store the wigs for upcoming cosplays. And transport them, too. The car on the way to Dragon*Con is going to look creepy as hell. 5 wig heads clamped to a container lid, all staring blankly out the windows at passing cars...

Maybe I'll take some time and restyle my Pinkie Pie wig soon...

Woot!~ I have groups for my Gundam Wing cosplays! I have a Heavyarms from Endless Waltz for my Trowa Cosplay, also the rest of the G-boys for my Trowa, and a Treize and a Lady Une for my Zechs cosplay!~

Now if I could only remember if Trowa wore a different outfit in Endless Waltz or not... I think he did? but ugh I can't tell since it's been forever since I've watched the movie.

The front of the jacket is nearly complete! Yay!
Tomorrow, I finish the front, and tackle the back. The arms shall be last, for those will be a bee-yotch.

More blood in the fabric thanks to the needle pricks. This cosplay officially has enough blood for a soul transfer.

Well, the kimono sleeves are squared off, just need to close them up. Debating whether to do it by machine or hand. It'll take a little more time by hand, but if I do it by hand there's much less to take apart since I have more maneuverability. That and I could easily work on it during my run crew work since I can actually take it with me. I probably won't be able to hem it in between theater work, though... I do have a Monday off so I could work on that then...

You know, run crew actually may not be so bad. I still have some free time on Tuesdays and Thursdays... I may not have to stress so much on getting Kenshin done within two weeks.

In other news:
Since I have never seen the last three episodes of Samurai Champloo (not for lack of wanting to, mind you) I watched them today because of Netflix. I kinda want to add Fuu and Jin to my roster. ... NO REILY. NO. ASIDE FROM BEING ON A COSPLAY MAKING HIATUS, YOU'VE GOT ENOUGH ON YOUR LIST.

Also am rewatching Ib playthroughs and I want to cosplay Ib too. D'oh. Damn this cosplayer brain, always wanting to cosplay something. -w-

Woohoo, I finally don't feel like my almost-finished-for-the-first-version Quorra cosplay looks like total crap. Got the makeup right (EIGHT items per eye required, one of which being false eyelashes), the wig's passable for now but getting overhauled asap (it's really snug on me and I chopped off a side piece in the wrong spot, so it's a bit further back fro my face on one side than it should be), the torso armour's almost done, the lightstrips I still have to sew down will be done by this weekend... and the wiring and disk dock will be finished by Sunday! Then I have to get my masquerade walkon practiced. Four-inch wedge-heeled boots with stiff ankles mean practice is needed to move cool on the stage.

My birthday is coming up soon, I'm hoping I can get enough money to either buy my boots or actually receive them as a gift. And my wig should, should, be arriving a couple days after my birthday, that's going to make me so happy if it does.

XD Just noticed my new wig for Schera will be here either tomorrow or Thursday. Yes!! even though she is still planned to be worked on after my con in july i can't help but feel excited and anxious to start on her.

on another note i love the boots i bought for Sheryl, still waiting for my other things to arrive for her.

I really need to go an edit my list here, cause i'm starting to doubt whether i will work on reira yet.

I would say sew by hand if you have the patience.. it's more traditional too. xD

Oh that reminds me I have yet to watch Samurai Champloo, been having it in my "plan to watch" list now for some time heh.

And it's not even that much hand sew work. I think I'll be doing that. Especially since it gives me something to work on and I've been dying to work on something - this just stretches it out a bit more. XD

It's a fun show - wild and crazy, pretty outrageous too. XD I think I wanna go back and rewatch the whole thing now, seeing as until today, I haven't seen the show for a few years now, despite the fact I actually have a couple of episodes on my computer.

By all means go for it then. xD

Oh, I'll make sure to watch it someday then! I've always liked Jin's design trolololo ~

Arda's wig swatches are so helpful~ I picked out the perfect color for HyunA, and I'm going to order my wig when I get paid again. It'll be my first lace-front, so I'm a little nervous. :O
I'm going to practice making the fibers wavy on my Le Tigre that I bought for a HotD cosplay a couple years ago, so that when I finally get my HyunA wig I'll know what I'm doing and not ruin it lol.

40-some-odd days to Sakura-Con. Still not panicking. I think I'm finally used to the stress of con prep lol.
