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...

Have you decided where you're going to order the cosplay? Just curious.

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... >. >

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.

Ordered a wig for my Lucina cosplay from Arda Wigs. Hours later, I realized that it's super heat resistant (I'm used to drenching wigs in hot water to straighten them), and now I may need to buy/borrow a hair straightener. -facedesk-

Currently just searching for colored contacts, and pretty much NONE of them have my base curve (8.4), diameter (14), and power (-6.50) together. -flips table- Thought it'd be nice to get some colored contacts since my vision finally settled. Oh well. I don't need them anyway.

Talk to your eye doctor. Depending on your individual situation, it may be possible for you to wear them anyways as long as it's not an everyday thing. For example, my base curve is 8.4 and most colored contacts come in 8.6, but when I mentioned wanting colored contacts for theatrical purposes the eye doctor was totally cool with it and said that as long as I wasn't planning on wearing them on a daily basis, it would be all right. She even gave me a bunch of samples so I could see which colors looked best. You DO need to consult the doctor though, to make sure you won't be harming your eyes.

As for me... yay, hardware store field trip tonight! Hopefully I'll even manage to be productive!

Heading out for Spring Break today!

I'm going to try and save as much money as possible so that I can buy some cosplay stuff that I need when I get back like paint and shoes for Kaname!

I also need to buy some cover up and get some make up brushes. I might buy the make up over break. Who knows.

Grudgingly working on the second Erza mockup. It's looking good! Somehow I added a whole lot of flare to the bottom of the jacket that needs to be taken out, and the chest area fits a lot smaller, probably because of how I merged the three back panels into one flat one.

My final fabric will be slightly stretchy, though, so I'm not ultimately worried about getting every millimeter correct.

That moment when you think, "Maybe I should resurrect this costume. Fix it up a bit." And then you realize that it would require basically starting over because you've gotten so much better/have plans to make it look better/whatever else goes through your mind. XD Taokaka, I love you so much, but let me finish my other projects first, okay?
