So... yesterday... wasted a lot of my time and I didn't get a chance to start on my wig and make drill curls. Whatever. I need chulk anyways after I actaully read a tutorial on it. LOL (since I wasn't willing enough to attempt and see if rubber cement glue thingy would actually damage the wig while drying since on the bad it could damage some surfaces)

Today though. Totally today I'm going to go and work on it.

I really need to stop watching cosplay music videos... They make me depressed about myself and overly critical as well.

It's always skinny pretty people (understandable because they tend to look better in costume and on film) and it seems like people above a size 12 (figuratively speaking)are only put in when they are either guys or added for a satirical/humerus purpose

I can't remember exactly which outfit that is, and I have to catch the bus for work in about 4 minutes, but here is a quick ref for you~

VK JRock outfits are AMAZING and were what made me start cosplaying in the first place. They give me hope that they're possible to make because they have to exist in the first place.
I think making a Versailles (Teru) outfit is always going to be my ultimate goal of cosplay. Because god knows that will take a fortune or a lot of time.

This. This so hard. I especially need to stop the habit of looking up cosplayers for a character when I decide to cosplay them.
It's never a good idea and makes me feel like poop. ;-;

Still not sure whether I want to spend the money I have now on the last few accessories for Ciel or a new wig. Getting a new wig would be fairly exciting, but it would also force me into making a certain outfit.

Also, Takane Shijou, stop making me want to cosplay you. I'm not tall or skinny at all and can't afford to try to make your fabulous clothes. ;-;

There's always her casual everyday clothes like this. XD My sister is much better at finding idolm@ster outfits than me though..

Started making my schedule for the next school year and I'm taking a jewelry class...which means make all the jewelery I need for future cosplays! I already know I'm going to become the professor's best friend so I can learn how to make everything.

Debating, when I go back to college in the fall, getting my hair cut into a near-exact replica of Quorra's. My own hair's pretty similar, it'd just require a change of bangs and assymetrical sides, and dyeing it to black or off-black. I need to try my wig on sans my ton of eye makeup and see if it still suits me. And then, I dunno if my own hair style would consistently look decent with it (my hair is naturally fairly wavy past two inches, fine, and loves to get frizzy in any humidity. It's a nightmare in summer). And THEN, how on earth do I put that up for wearing wigs? My current angled bob is difficult enough. Rrrgh.

True. I'd still need the wig though..and somewhere to wear it. That's more my issue this year than anything else. /I've got too many damned outfits planned to wear anywhere/.

I find I'm a lot less critical of cosplay quality in real life than online.

Also I cut my hair. It may be too short for Aranea now, but it's nearly perfect for Snow.

Probably both, just saying. I know there's one girl on coscom who did an amazing Jasmine You cosplay and I think it ran her something like $1500. The devil's in the details.

I feel like Versailles is too far on the sophisticated side of VK cosplay for me. I like the rougher, more ridiculous look. Like VK era Dir en Grey and DespairsRay and Amaterase and Vidoll.




Once I stop getting sidetracked with all these anime cosplays, I'ma get right on remaking my Myaku Toshiya costume and remaking his ridiculously amazing bass so that it functions to go with it.

Ah, thanks. You're my hero of the day. Maybe someday I'll be that good, and hopefully I'll still have the body to wear 'em when that day comes. xD

(I find it kind of hilarious that the audience is sitting down and listening politely.)

This is so very true. This is why I try really hard to go to cons often. If I go too long without them I tend to forget my reasonable perception of quality with costumes and at least think like a pompous asshat when I see pictures of them ._.;
Or I get really downtrodden and see everything as amazing because I'm horrible. I have a lot of extremes.

True. Oh man, not prepared for that ;-; I'm just gonna go back to the Jpop bands now for any band cosplays. OTL *An Cafe mainly*

Hey, isn't my fault~ :P

I'm having a dilemma. My two costumes I would choose for Momocon are drastically different in sizing.
Ririchiyo is tight enough to be uncomfortable but not too tight to wear. The version of Ciel I have right now is big enough to be annoying but not so big it's falling off of me.
OH MY GOD COSTUMES STAHP. I JUST WANT TO BE COMFORTABLE ;A;
Also thinking if nothing can be done with Ririchiyo (and possibly if I have my Funtom rabbit by then), I'll wear Ciel to Momocon instead. If I do that, I'll try to wear Ririchiyo to meetups and possibly AWA if any of my InuBo friends are coming down for that >.< If not..cosplays go according to plan.

Trying to work out more due to crappy eating, in order to be in decent enough shape for cons (and to stay healthy of course). Went from 3 days a week to 5. Only bad part is that I have skipped breakfast in the morning a few times due to being a little sore and wanting to stay in bed an extra 15 minutes XD

Lol, I probably don't even need to exercise those 2 extra days since I'm not that fat to begin with, and don't need to lose weight, but COSPLAY! I'll just use that as motivation even though I don't need it XD

Cosplay is a lot of fun. You get to be someone else for a day, or a few hours. The transformations can be so drastic. It is mind blowing.
I love the anticipation and the process of shopping for the right outfit, materials. It's a lot of fun and sometimes well, the cosplay can be turned into actual everyday clothing!
I love watching people's end products. It's also funny when you see people who look so much like the character you almost forget who they are when they get into character!!!
I've checked out many of the cosplays on this website and I must say I am amazed by some of the things I've seen.
I was too embarrassed before to do it but wow! Thumbs up for you guys!
