Kind of silly, but;

The guy I've been seeing for about five months has never been to an anime con. We met at a horror movie con so he's not a stranger to the convention scene. However this is his first anime con, and he's totally digging it and he's even going to cosplay to it! Now if only military stuff was indeed super easy to come by around here... D:

I hate having very specific things you want to do but not being able to do them because all the factors for you to do them are out of your hands. :I Gah..especially with planning. I /want/ to have a good solid plan for this year's costumes and cons so I can start efficiently working on them but there are so many little factors that I just don't know what will work and what won't. Especially with groups. I'm having an especially hard time getting answers from groups lately. I still haven't been told whether it would be okay for me to back out of the SAO group for AWA. And I need to ask the Kampfer group when they would want to cosplay it. At least with the Kampfer group I know the girls usually go to both Atlanta Anime Days during the year, so I can do it for the one in Fall this year to give myself plenty of time to work on Natsuru.
That also leaves a huge space open for AWA, though I know everyone pretty much already has themselves booked for AWA. Maybe this could be my chance to work on a Dead Master cosplay with my birthday money? But..I won't know if I can until I know how much birthday money I have.
...Planning things out is frustrating to a ridiculous level, but also relieving when you get it done. So I'm trying to get it done.

We're gonna try something different at Katsucon. I was thinking, since most of the Photoshoot places are taken, we are thinking of doing sort of a traveling photoshoot. That is, we're gonna walk around the Gaylord, and if there is a nice spot and people want to take pictures, we just shimmy down into the spot.

To tell you the truth though, This seems to be what most cosplayers do alone. Yet as me and my dad are getting an increasing amount "followers"( I don't know, they say they like our stuff and come cosplay with us. What am I supposed to name them? >_<), I thought it would be neat to do it as a group. Hopefully things don't turn into a giant mess.

Again, this is sort of a new thing that were trying out. So it would be nice if we got some pointers first (Preferably by PM though. I don't want to derail this thread by cluttering it up.)

We're also trying to get Carter from Halo Reach in presentable condition for Katsucon too, so maybe we'll be recognizable?...

Oh gosh. I really need to find a wig for my secret cosplay and soon. Anime Detour is coming up and I rather not waste my time idling.

Going to the doctor today too for an eye exam. SO I could have my dang prescription so I can buy some contacts and cheaper glasses online. 8D LOL

Straightened my Asami wig today. It frizzed up a lot at AlmaCon, and...well, I wasn't digging how curly it was to begin with. I'm glad that my straightener had a low enough heat for it. Next step, recurling it to at least get some waves back. Wondering if I should get some silicone spray, and whether I should spray it before or after I curl it.

Also, bought some sponge rollers to curl my own hair for River. Hopefully I'll be able to get it right before the convention.

Gotta finish a friend's mask...draft a pattern...dye some cloth...sew a dress...make some belts....no big deal. I can totally finish all that before April....right? RIGHT?

I can't make up my mind if I want to buy this wig for a cosplay I really want to do. The wig is pretty expensive, but otherwise I have her whole outfit in my closet already- I just don't know! Why do arda wigs have to be so expensive...?

Man, I would be nowhere masquerade-wise if it weren't for my boyfriend being a musician/well-skilled with studio equipment. He just pulled off a pretty sweet soundtrack for my Tron: Legacy masquerade skit; essentially impersonating Jeff Bridges and his opening spiel on "The Grid", but reworded (he found an instrumental which meant dialogue could easily be recorded over it). And I get the needed intro WITH the insanely awesome music and no worry about the emcee screwing up the timing or tone. But the audience has to listen to it for nineteen seconds before I'm even onstage. Hmmm. I hope that's not too long. With awesome music to accompany, I'd say it'd be pushing it a bit but it's not too long...

Blah. Amnesia Heroine is going to be a lot more money than I thought. Especially since I'm getting the dress commissioned instead of making it myself. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to thrift the boots and the jacket thing(if worse comes to worse, I do have one I could butcher for the cosplay...). Also hopefully sell some of my old wigs/cosplay stuff to help with the costs as well.

Have lots-o-fun dear~

Finally got another bin for the rest of my cosplay stuff. About time because I was just leaving stuff on the floor. Everywhere. Literally everywhere.
I've also been feeling the need to get some more KHR pics. For being practically one of my favorite series ever, I have a severe lack of photos. Next weekend it is.

Need to get a new outer jacket for my Ken cosplay since my friend has finally reclaimed it (I borrowed it ).

It seems I literally have no pictures of me in my Ken or Honey cosplay. Which is very disturbing. Probably gonna head out on the holiday (Yeah, go president's!) and take some pics after finding a jacket.

So it ends up I don't get nearly as much as others in way of work in run crew because I'm in wardrobe, and the only thing you gotta worry about in wardrobe are quick changes and making sure the actors aren't having drama with their costumes. So I may not have to spend all day Saturday in the theater, and may not have to go in Sunday at all. I KNOW WHAT I'M SPENDING ALL THAT FREE TIME ON. 8D

... In the meantime, I really should finish the buttload of homework that's due tomorrow. ... Yup...

I have a friend who lives in the Northern Territories of Canada. She makes these things called Amauties ((pron; ah-MAO-oo-tee)) which are Eskimo hoodies that you can use to carry babies on your back, or random stuff. They are VERY Watertribe-esque (or vice versa, since they had to mine the idea from somewhere.). She's said she could make a Korra one for me, but the fabric and delivery would really cost more than I can afford. Plus her time.

Still, I'm considering it for the authenticity. It would make a killer Korra cosplay.
