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.)

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! ^_^

Well gosh it seems like everyone's finishing up something! D: I've been trying to work on Kenshin but I don't think I'll get any work done till the play starts running... because homework is stupid and I have a paper due tomorrow and play costume research to do... Blegh.

I want to try on my almost complete cosplays so far but I'm wondering if I should save that until after the events I'm going to at the weekend (which I'm wearing entirely different cosplays to) and wait until that stress has passed or just cave in and do it tomorrow...

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
