So I'm currently watching Neon Genesis Evangelion right now, and for some reason I really would like to cosplay Rei. Once again, I end up wanting to cosplay a short haired girl XD!! Even though I myself have long hair. Then again, due to major split ends, I too am a short haired girl. What used to be like halfway down my back is now just a little passed my chin. Ah well, easier to wear wigs?

OMG, I FINALLY found my camera! And just in time for Con-G.
...speaking of which, back to packing. It's Monday night and I leave Thursday and I'm semi-busy Tuesday and Wednesday... oh wait, but I have to finish the last things on Quorra first... THEN back to packing!

Have three months until Anime Boston. Enough time to find and put together a new cosplay? Probably not, considering I've spent the last couple years trying to decide on one to no avail. <_<

If you at least know what you're going to cosplay, three months is plenty doable for a fairly easy to moderate one, depending on your skills. I make most of my easier costumes in under three months or the equivalent of. A rule of thumb I give myself is that if I know how to do almost all the costume, don't give myself any less than a hundred days to finish (so, 1% per day to completion if you use that system in figuring out how done you are).

Ughhhhhh the battle of determining characters costume colors. I spent about an hour staring at 10 reference pictures for Sheryl's top, a mixture of Figma's, cosplayers and original source and still i was stuck.While before hand i spent 2 days at home debating as well. I finally put my hands up and went with what my eye perceived to be the color which was a blue green or turquoise and a dark blue for the band. The colors are nice and so is the quality, if anyone has a hissy fit about my choice, i no longer careXD


On another note, i went and also bought the fabric for Mio's top, now i'm debating which side to use that stays to the gray, i really think i'll go with the original lighter side despite some if the tiny minor design. Which only if you're up super close will you only realize since it's so small and minor.

I have been assigned Hikaru for my Ouran group. Kaoru is three inches taller than me. Eh, we've been mistaken for siblings anyway.
Lucky for me, we're waiting for Tamaki to come back from Pendleton. California needs to stop stealing my friends.

Like I mentioned, my main problem is deciding on a cosplay. I don't like forcing one onto myself and I dislike borrowing them from friends because it makes me feel... fake somehow. :/

Constructing a costume doesn't take too long once I start. Hardest part for me is starting.

Hrmm. There's a hairline crack on Richter's axe on the side opposite I'm sanding. I'm hoping I just got a little too rough with the sanding sponge rather than the blade being structurally unsound. :I

I played with applying pressure and it seems quite stable. It just makes me nervous. Maybe I'll go sew for a bit instead...

Despite having no idea when, where, or how, I have made it my mission to make Lorenzo from Cuticle Detective Inaba, if only because I share his feelings regarding a certain goat. (Well, perhaps not the same feelings, but... Don Valentino for Best Goat 2013)

>.>Three day weekend in which I did nothing cosplay wise. It sucks and my deadline is coming up and I have midterms and ugh... I just couldn't help it since I spent half the time asleep or delusional from the meds. Stupid allergies...

Gah so studying for midterms and working on Seymour here I come! I hope I can finish Sinbad in time at least... This set back just really sucks....

So the paypal transfers finally went in my bank account history. Which I guess means I'm in the clear to buy the rest of the stuff for Amnesia Heroine. XD And I found a nice tutorial to make rolled fabric roses. ^_^

I'm just not feeling the same drive to cosplay. Aside from Pokemon gijinka groups I don't have anything I really want to do. Maybe I'm just outgrowing the hobby.

:/ I'm conflicted. I really want to cosplay Rolan Flamberge from Rolan the Forgotten King. My only problem is it's a fairly obscure manga with few color references. I always see Rolan's vest as red with black trim in my head and prefer to think of it that way, but is you can see, the colored photos have it as dark grey/black. I figure I could get away with making it red if I wanted to since it's such a non-well-known series, but I asked my friend and she said it'd be inaccurate and wrong to make the vest red.

Any thoughts on what I should do? I really need opinions on obscure accuracy vs. personal preference...
