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.

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-
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.

YES! I finally finished Eva's top! I can't wait to take a progress picture, but I have to wait for this last bit of liquid stitch to dry T_T

So now all that's left is making the shoulder, collar, gloves, and finishing the boot covers ... as of right now I'm at 65% done ... can't wait for it to be 100% lol

Finally bid on a skirt for Heroine. Back in cosplay mode full swing! I think it's because pretty much everyone in my cosplay friend circle is going to Katsucon and I'm not...

Oh well, at least I can have a photoshoot this weekend while I'm home. I think I'll finally do that Badbye Gumi one I've been wanting to do for a while now.

So apparently the last two packages I'm expecting should come in either today or tomorrow, according to their tracking numbers. Awesome~ Because I'm off and don't have to risk my stuff getting sent back to China or something. Also, I'm glad I managed to get around the Chinese New Year delays.


Also, I don't know if I mentioned it here, but I added a last minute costume to my Sakura-Con roster. Asuna, from Sword Art Online. Because my friend who's being Kirito expressed a wish for someone to go as his Asuna, and I have no willpower, and I make a lot of bad decisions because they sound like fun. .-. But this Sakura-Con is basically going to be a big SAO party, they're getting a ton of guests who worked on SAO material. It's like a subtly themed convention. And I really want in on that kind of excitement and belonging.


So now in addition to Erza, who is still in the first mockup stage, I have to make Asuna's chest armor, boots, armband thing, wig, and possibly sword. And I need to figure out how to keep her socks from falling down. o:


And then I made my normal cosplaying friends/group watch SAO and now they want to jump in on the group as Lizbeth and Klein, but for a different con.

If I work diligently into the wee hours of the morning, I can have the back of this jacket finished! Yay!

Then it's off to learn how to embroider. O_O........

My friend --who has worked with the more hardware aspects of creativity before-- is painting the Yasaogami high pin ((a.k.a. used-to-be-mercedes benz keychain)), and the glasses into a nice burnt sienna orange. I wanted them more orange than yellow, since Chie's glasses are yellow. Plus, the coloring varies from screenshot to screenshot.

All in all, it's coming along!

I'm working with a woman's jacket, so there's just no avoiding aspects of that one.

I just remembered I have to make a prop or two for my next con
Oops. Well, good thing I remembered now and not a day before, or something.
Now I just need to go buy some supplies and get to work! ...As soon as I stop being sick.

I think I just found the character to fill in the space I'll have after Ciel is all done~ Natsuru Senou from Kampfer! (the female version) That's not a show I expected to like, but it's actually pretty good so far, and apparently some girls in the area were already wanting to do a couple of minor characters from it. Best part is, if I get a wig from Arda using the coupon I have for them (since I'll have to style it no matter what), I can get the whole costume together for under $100, so I can do it fairly soon. > Ahaha~ I win~
