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...
I say go for what you want. It is your cosplay after all and I don't think anyone is going to care.

Getting way too excited for the Amnesia group at Otakon. We now have a Shin and I am getting far too excited too early on. This group is going to be AWESOME. Although a part of me is worried I'm going to be too awkwardly-nervous since I've never met any of the people in the group itself before(in person at least) but I guess I'll worry about that when it comes to it. Right now...I have a wig to order. And a pair of tights.

Cleaned out my closet today. That means I have old jeans to slice apart to make into new things. But the clingy legging things... I don't think I'll be able to use them for their intended purpose after using them for Sheik.
Rest in peace, leggings. You were so 2008 anyway.

If I had three other friends willing to do this, I'd totally do a group cosplay of these guys.

I finally finished sewing my friend's Sayaka armor~! Now to just put the grommets in the back and it'll be ready to go!

On a related note, I am SUPER pleased with my sewing machine. It sewed through a sandwich composed of 2 layers of heavy weight interfacing, 4 layers of stretch cotton sateen, and 4 layers of mid-weight vinyl, like it was nothing! Super precise, tidy, neat stitches in a straight line. Easily the best cosplay investment I've ever made.

My old machine had trouble with four layers of broadcloth, so this is a definite step up. Like, a whole staircase.

I gave in to temptation today. I ordered some more yarn to remake Tim's Chocolate beanie. I've figured out a new pattern and I am hoping the yarn is close to the color it looks like on the website. I think third time's a charm!

After reading some reviews regarding Mega Con, I decided I no longer want to attend it next month. I think I want to attend Florida Anime Experience in May instead....it's a lot cheaper, newer, and I have more time to get wigs for Jolteon and Luxray. :3

I think I'm going to convince my mom to let me go for Saturday AND Sunday, because I'd like to debut both of my costumes.

Expanding foam or wood....expanding foam or wood....I'm having a hell of a time trying to decide what I want to make my swords out of. Not only that, but I'm just racking my brain trying to figure out how in the hell I'm going to make my shield. It looks like a tough shield to make, but hey, I'll persevere somehow. I usually do.

I just looked at your signature and I see that you're going to cosplay Lenalee from D. Gray Man. I love that anime and manga! It's far too underrated imo. :'P

Sandals for Saber came in! Thankfully they fit me which was the one thing I was worried about. And now Saber is pretty much done and ready to go. ^_^

Also I'm wondering where the heck my Chizuru wig is. The tracking says it is here but it wasn't in my mailbox... >_< I'm going to get my friend to check for me since my mailbox is on the top and I'm a bit too short to actually see in it.

Starting to make boot covers for Asuna. Still not sure what I'm making them out of.

I wrapped up one of my base boots in plastic wrap and then two layers of duct tape so I could cut it off and make a pattern. I only had black duct tape on hand, which means I can't scribble on it in normal black pen/sharpie. Solution? Draw lines in white out.

Making my first attempt at styling a wig. It's the easiest one to do, of the wigs I have to tackle this year...

Re-curling my Pinkie Pie wig. I adore the Five Wits wig I got, it's spectacularly fluffy, however, I really want to have that POOF! that she is known for instead of the gentle waves the wig came with.

Fingers crossed that this works well, and I don't have to redo it... these curlers aren't getting along with me.

So it turns out that it's actually pretty difficult to pull the sole of a boot. I think I may actually forgo this step. I'm using vinyl instead of spandex, so maybe I can get a nice clean edge without tucking it in?
