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.

Now...to finish fixing Roy up as best as I can and pray it looks okay.
Slight change of plans for Ciel...depends on what the weather is looking like.

I can...do this. I think.
Survive ConNooga, come back, finish Ittoki...which will be cutting it really close....finish styling a wig for the secret cosplay....yeah.

I am fixing to turn into a cosplay hermit for most of March.

...I have even more motivation to try Kuranosuke now. No. This isn't good. Dammit new friend for offering to be Jiji ;-; Because I know I'm going to totally underestimate the effort I need to put into that unless I somehow manage to miraculously score money for a wig from GLW.

It was also reinforced how much I hate not being able to go to a con for multiple days. I was invited to cosplay Vocaloid with a friend's group and I hate saying no, but I have to. Seriously...I do understand my parent's worries. Really, I do. But..you let my sister go on church trips all the time when she was my age. While these don't exactly have the same safety restrictions..I would like to go stay there. Maybe I'll find someone with a parent and I'll eventually be able to go to cons for more than a Saturday. I feel like that would help the majority of the insecurities and worries I have when it comes to cosplay.

Other than that, the ball should start rolling now as far as everything goes. Momo is next weekend, I'll wear Ririchiyo...by then I should have my Funtom rabbit, then shortly after Momo my Ciel cosplay..then I jump on and work on getting Rikka together (I can't wait for that wig, you don't even know)..and then I figure out how much b-day money I have and what the hell I'll actually be doing for AWA. I'm thinking Rei from Vividred Operation if DM isn't possible..as long as VO ends up getting better. Right now it's the same thing with a different girl every episode as they introduce everyone..>.> Hopefully once they get that out of the way it'll get better.

So here I was thinking, "Yes, a day off from theater work! Finally I can get something done on Kenshin's kimono!" WRONG. I ended up spending my day cleaning and doing a boat load of research that still isn't complete! asgfsa,bfsaf This next week is going to kill me... So many things due next week... and still no work on Kenshin! AUGH.

EDIT: Also, chapter 92 of Kamisama... My feels. They've exploded everywhere. And I want to cosplay everyone and their mother from this manga so hard and again am reminded of why I can't. WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN? Here I am, struggling to come up with cosplays to make before I go on my making hiatus, but now that I am on one, I'm getting ideas from everywhere! I think cosplay gods just like to torture me. D:
Working On:
Kamui (Fire Emblem: Fates) - 51%

I haven't even debuted Ezio. And I already want to cosplay Lisbeth from Sword Art Online. DX I'm an awful hopper when it comes to cosplay.

Hopefully sometime soon I'll have time to sit down and get some more work on on my Fangirl. Between classes and life, I haven't had any time in the last month. Bleh. And now I've got the yarn to try and make a new beanie for Tim. I know it's going to try to distract me from the Fangirl. I have to stay strong and at least get her socks done before I start on his beanie.

Ugh.. This fabric is thick, and my pins are too weak.

I keep bending my pins while pinning the fabric to itself. :'(

Depending on what parts/shapes you're pinning, maybe try using binder clips to keep the fabric together instead? That's how I manage when sewing together giant sandwiches of fabric.

Thanks for the tip, I'll use it next time. I've just finished pinning it all together.

It wasn't even a very giant sandwich either. The fabric itself was just rather thick (not even extremely) and had to pierce through only four layers. I blame the poor quality of my pins. I need to upgrade :P

Now I just need my mother in law to have time to supervise again. Last time I was sewing by myself, I literally blew up the sewing machine. ^^;
