Got my new wig for the Princess of the Crystal todayX33 It's so lovely, the shade is nice and the length ios perfect. The only downfall is that the hair at some points has a mind of it's own and slighty looks shuffled, but it combs out real nice. I'm thinking i'll definitely need my widetoohed wig comb for the con and constantly comb it. Still love it thoughXD

Now if i can find some free time from my paper, i might be able to take a picture of it thursday.

Why can't I ever do something that's not needlessly elaborate? I was all set for an easy, relaxing con with absolutely no build work - and then someone suggested a new cosplay and the idea was so intriguing I couldn't NOT do it.

At least I have three months to work on it...

I managed to burn my hands last night while dyeing the material for my Pirate coat. I decided that the pink duck cloth was just a touch too peachy fleshy tone, and I wanted a more roses pink.

Didn't need it much darker, just a tiny bit less peach. About 1 minute in the hot dye bath was plenty to get the right color. So, what did I do? Why yes, I reached my mostly unprotected hand into that recently boiling water before remembering that I had a stick to fish the fabric out with.

Yes - I am a moron. And a grown woman who should know better. Ah we'll, not as bad as the fondue incident.

Well my dad went to K-Mart and bought me a giant pack of needles, meaning I can resume Saphir's jacket whenever my mom takes me off cosplay probation

Why is it so difficult to find a pair of white ankle boots without a killer heel!? My balance stinks enough as it is. I need a thicker heal than most of these boots have. Plus I need a heel in general since Heroine(Amnesia) shoes have some heel to them. GAH! >_>

Well in good news, I found a nice beret that was pretty cheap and ordered that.

And I was going to continue to make rolled roses but then I realized I don't have pink thread in my dorm room so I can't sew the strips of fabric together. Guess I'm going to need to wait until this weekend when my sister can bring me stuff when she visits with the family.

Haa, you poor thing that I can't help but laugh at even though it's a boo. What inspired her to put you on probation?

Starting to work on Link's Hylian Shield. I've put together the stencil and started to make the outlines on foamcore. Outlines aren't coming out exactly symmetrical, but I think someone would have to stare at it for a long time to tell, so I'm going to stop driving myself nuts over it.

Hand-stitching the bottom edge of the bust armor now for a nice, clean lycra-rolled edge over the fleece lining. All there's left to do after this for the bust armor is put the zipper in and cut back the sleeves to fit them for the petals. And of course the obligatory snap sewing, both to leotard and to collar facing. I even already have the new collar made, I just need to make its facing and sew it in, and continue ironing some deep creases out from when the fabric was folded.

I really love how it's turning out, it's really going to not only add something to S Saturn, but make it a lot easier to switch between S and Super Saturns. *u*

The fact that I have a project due on friday and I had an emotional breakdown in english class when I realized it. I know she just wants me to succeed, so I'm waiting until now when it's the end of the night to sew beads.
