I was supposed to do a lot of sewing today. But instead I wound up cleaning up the cosplay room. I guess at least I did something?


I sewed the top two seams in my friend's Sayaka skirt so I could take out the pins and be ready for tomorrow when she comes over so we can cut the bottom. And I did a pleating test on some other fabric. I also set my Asuna fabric to wash. I have a beautiful dark red cotton sateen and a much brighter red one. For her skirt and her armbands, respectively. I decided to wash them together because in the event that the darker red fabric dyes the lighter red, so much the better for me because the lighter red is WAY bright and could probably benefit from being darkened up a little.

Not a very productive day, but it could have been worse. At least I didn't sit around playing Final Fantasy Tactics all day again. Just til noon this time...

My week off ends Sunday... what to do next week? I need to get started on my winged elf.... I need to wash my cosplays from Con-G.... I need to start R&Ding just how to do some decent armpieces on Quorra (ugh. First versions, did NOT stay in place. They looked awful in photos)... and I've hatched a plan to try and make a couple bucks on the side by selling parasprite plushies for sale once I refine the process to look a bit more professional. What to choose? @_@

Time, why you know work for me? Also, I hate pleats that I need to make sure are ironed or it won't look right. I'm looking at you Jin hakama.

I'm just gonna go buy Hijikata's cosplay and save me the effort. >.> Express shipping is going to murder my wallet but thats alright.

Apparently, actually working on cosplay helps get it done.

Who would have thought?!

It's past 2am, but the two stripes on the back of this jacket are finished. The outfit is complete.
Again.

I feel your pain. I'm going to do the same thing with Chie's outfit because a) no sewing machine to make the jacket, and b) tried the pleated skirt once before. It ended in tears.

At this rate, I'm never going to complete all the costumes I have on my "eventually" list. At least kpartialy because I keep adding things to the list.

I really wish I had a group of friends who were Beatles fans... I really want to do a Sgt. Pepper's Cosplay group someday. Because I want Ringo's shiny neon pink military uniform. There are plenty of references... But without the rest of the group, I don't think I'd be recognizable...

I was rummaging through my cosplay stuff and I pulled out my blonde wig, and I started thinking of what cosplay I could do with it. And then I went to go see what was in my drawers/closet and I was easily able to put together a fem!Denmark cosplay ! I couldn't stop gushing because I looked so awesome hehe XD. Though my wig is long i'm thinking of buying extensions for it because I'd like it to be longer.

Ouch. T_T I've never made a pleated skirt before because well...it just never came up. I've done pleats for a puffy sleeve, it takes me forever but it doesn't require ironing in order to look right that much... >. >

Ebay. I've found a pretty good seller with a great rating. ^^

Drafting patterns: I think I'm doing it backwards.

I just cut apart my Erza jacket mockup and I've decided to combine the three back panels of the fitted bodice into one flat panel. To reduce the number of seams. Regardless of the fact that it will no longer curve around my body as well.

If it looks funny in the next mockup, I guess I'll put the panels back in and cut the bottom into long panels to match the new seams. Because I'm absurd and I hate having waist seams. I want princess seamed everything.
