I'm already looking for a Natsuru wig. I can work fast when I really want to. Arda has a Jeannie in the perfect color and with my coupon it'd only be $20 or so with shipping..my mom already has $40 in the bank for me and $30 of that was going to be spent on a Funtom bunny..what's worth more to me right now, a wig I can use to occupy myself..or a Funtom bunny I won't need until April or May at the earliest? XD Hm..I might go ahead and get that wig so I'll have more than $10 spending money leftover..and so I have motivation to do this costume and group with these people.

Also, a tip for newbies mainly (and I know someone will use it, since I blew money when I didn't need to), if you need thigh-highs for a character and find cheap tights in a similar color (and own or can buy fabric scissors), get the tights and just cut the legs off. It looks fine if you do it carefully, you just may need something like double-sided tape to keep them up, which I, with thunder thighs, need anyways. This also applies if you're plus-sized and one-size-fits-all thigh highs just won't work.

I mentioned earlier that I lost my buttonhole foot. I've looked all over and still can't find it. Although we found a sewing machine store and they're ordered the foot for our model. They said it should be there around Tuesday.

Today I was talking to my brother and asked him if he would ever cosplay with me. He is into more mainstream animes, but he likes them a lot. After asking him this, he turns to me and says Dragonball. We made a list of all the characters we want to cosplay together from that series! (It's a long list too!) God I have the best younger bro ever XD Just because you're twelve doesnt mean you are too cool for your big sister :3

A friend commissioned me to make a few Persona-lized tarot cards for him and his friends for an upcoming convention. Which also made me realize a couple of things regarding Persona 4 Golden:

1) I haven't made cards of any of the main cast's third tier Personae
2) Why the heck is it so hard to find high quality pics of Kaguya and the Hunger/Lust arcana?

Super nervous that my wig wont be here in time for the convention this weekend ;_;

I ordered it a week ago but it's not here yet. I've still got two days to wait so I'm hoping it will be here by friday.

I've decided that after I get the cosplays I'm currently working on done, I'm going to take a break from getting any new ones.
I'll still go to cons and cosplay, just no new ones for a while.
I'd really like to get some BJDs, and I will never be able to afford them if I keep buying new cosplays.
Since I'm still relatively new to cosplay, I can make due with the ones I'll have, especially since I haven't really worked out how to balance so many yet.

I just...Really want some BJDs.

225 stitches on the jacket so far, and it's got the arms and one of the back lines left to go.

175 stitches on the pants. =400 white stitches SO FAR. O_O And lots of blood.

I gave that jacket stitches. Jackets love stitches.

My wig and costume came today~

The wig is tons better than I thought it would be. Color is great, style is almost perfect, texture is reasonably soft and can be finger combed, thickness is pretty decent. I was afraid it was going to be super thin, but I tried it on and my friends said the wefts are out of sight, even when I muss up the fibers a bit. Sounds like a go to me!

The costume is... So so. Some of the construction is amazing, and some of it is really terribly done. But I wanted it for another quick derp around costume for small cons, not for showing off at big cons, so it works for my purposes.

Also~ My friend wants to jump in on the SAO group I've got forming as Lizbeth! Her boyfriend says he wants to be Klein, but he can't sew, so we'll see how far he gets. My group is at 3 people, maybe 4! This is super exciting!

It looks like my order of feathers is going to arrive today, nearly a week before I expected it. This is pretty awesome, since the feather pin/flash is the one thing my Pinkie Pie-rate hat was missing.

Slightly Cosplay related, I've been turning out friendship bracelets like a boss - planning to hand them out to anyone who wants one when I'm in my Pinkie Pie costume(s). So, if anyone's going to Dragon*Con (or possibly Bronycon) find me, and I'll toss you an awesome bracelet (awesomeness subject to eye of the beholder.)
Convention Line-Up: Dragon*Con 2016
Planned Costumes:
Scarlet Witch (All New All Different Marvel), Jayna (Wonder Twins, Super Friends),
Fix-it Faerie (Original Design), 1950s Housewife Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls... ish)

So...somehow I got roped into another cosplay group for Otakon. Amnesia this time. XD. It's really funny how it ended up happening too. (comments on someone's fb status ->to PM discussing about a possible group->to group) I'm going to get Heroine's green dress commissioned because I really don't want to make it... Must practice being deadpan and stupid and devoid of all emotion.

Finished the final fitting for Soubi's shirt, and started the arm bands. I need to fit the arm bands and add velcro (ugh). Then all that's left is sewing in the exaggerated decorative stitching! ^_^
