I'm starting my journey for Närcon Vinter today, AAAWWW YEEEEEAAAAA so excited! The con starts on Friday but I have to leave earlier because I will be traveling 19 hours by bus & train. I'm finishing my packing right now and I hope I'm not forgetting anything..

I wonder how the members of one of my favorite bands will react when I have taken their incredibly awesome concept album character and sprinted with it. I'm taking some incredible design liberties on this new Protoman outfit.

I girded my loins and tackled the tiny, detailed, holy-cow-my-eyes-are-bleeding embroider for the emblem on the jacket. The kanji below is so tiny, one thread doubled up was almost too much. >.< Plus, I snapped my embroidery ring. *cries.* I had to stitch with moving fabric.

I have two more circles to embroider tomorrow after work, and then.... and then... and then...... *deep breath.* My Persona 4 uniform will be complete!
....save the glasses. I still need to paint the rainbow stripes on those.

Progress pics of the jacket and upclose and personal.

I may end up having to sell one of the costumes I had lined up for Sakura-Con because I need money for supplies.

I hate being broke. "otz

I'm REALLY annoyed right now. The good news is, the wig I got for Chizuru came in. A. It's so long. O_O Like I wasn't expecting it to be that long. At least it detangles easily. B For some reason the side bangs are cut short. Like...why!? Even if I do cut the wig shorter for Chizuru's hair length I don't think it would look right since her hair is longer in the pre-cut part(to almost reaching her shoulder) Ugh. >_<

I'm having a Love Hate relationship with Patterns.
I love buying them but How can a 32 be a size 6, 8 and 10. And on top of that when I finish making it it's 3 sizes too big and its made for petite too T_T. I just got done with the Base of a shirt size 10 on the package for 32. I could still take the whole back panel out I really want to cry right now. I wasted a yard of fabric. but I'm glad I didn't make the dress.

These might be some obvious questions, but:

a) Have you taken your own measurements recently/accurately?
b) Are you looking at the measurement chart on the back of the pattern envelope to determine which size to make?

If the answer to either of those is no, that might be the cause of your problem. If the answer to those is yes, then:

c) Which pattern company's pattern are you using? Different pattern companies have different ideas of how things should fit, and sometimes that fit is just TERRIBLE. If you're using Simplicity, for example, I've found that their patterns tend to run HUGE. (As in, I'm pretty sure a blouse does not need 12 inches of ease!!!)

Because it can be such a pain trying to get things fitted and sized correctly, it can help to make a mock-up garment of really cheap fabric first before you start using the good stuff. Muslin is good for this, as are old bedsheets (you can get them SUPER cheap at a thrift store, just make sure you wash them well first!)

DX I was hoping my mom would take me shopping to get stuff for Saphir's jacket, but no such luck. What kills me is the mall is right across the street and I could walk there if It wasn't so damn cold -3-
