I feel your pain. I was so so so so SO nervous the first time I entered a contest 3 years ago. What I ended up doing was talking to a lot of the other people in the novice division before we lined up to go out there. It helped a lot knowing there were so many other people out there who were just as freaked out as I was. Just go out there and do your best, you'll do great! ^^

Gah. I should not be allowed to read manga. I get way too many cosplay ideas. -_- I'm totally in love with Variante right now and I want to cosplay Aiko. Of course since this is a manga-only series hair color is the biggest issue. Seriously. Aiko's hair jumps from brown to black to a gray-black to gray-brown! And this manga is only 4 volumes with only a few color images!

Cutting this wig is the most terrifying thing I've done today.
And I had to deal with a houseful of carbon monoxide alone today, so that's actually saying something.

Yes I will! I'm really glad that I realized this today! Soon enough I'll be able to take my con schedule into my own hands!

I think I'll start making his Baculus this weekend~

I have fallen hopelessly in love with this outfit. I bemoan that I will never ever be able to make it.

I thought I was finished with the white jacket, but tonight I just realized there are grey stripes going down the back as well. *headdesk.* this means i have to cut, align, and hand sew on two more stripes. As Princess Leia says, "It's not over yet."

This is going to take me at least two full days. *headdesk.* Good-bye, weekend. Nice knowin' ya.

That's Teru, the guitarist of the band Versailles.

I can't remember exactly which outfit that is, and I have to catch the bus for work in about 4 minutes, but here are quick refs 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.

Got and made my England belt this past weekend. I was also looking for leather gloves and I knew where to look, but they didnt have the ones I liked. Funny thing is though they did back when my sister took me out to buy my bag - which was earlier this month (probably because winter is almost over so places are changing their layout/merchandise). Hopefully I find them this weekend.

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 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.
