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?

This is me, forever and ever and ever~


I hadn't even gone one day at the con I was debuting Haunted at before I was making plans to remake it and the costume that is supposed to go with it.

And my Daishi armor is amazing, but needs a better harness. And I found out the jumpsuit ripped and has a hole in it, so I'd need to remake the jumpsuit as well. And the feathers are all flat from being in storage so long that I'd need new feathers...

Am I the only one that find Arda Wigs' site a little confusing? I can't seem to find what I want from there because of all the info presented.

You are not the only one :/
Arda needs to organize the wig section better, it's gets a bit confusing.

I finally got everything for my Yuri Nakamura cosplay. Just need to come up with make-up plan and buy make up... haha xP

So wigisfashion sent me a 50% coupon that can only be used on March 4th... Well, time to see if there are any wigs I can get for future cosplays. I did spot a wig I could get for Aiko....

I'm also getting the feeling that Chizuru is going to be my "developmental hell" cosplay. It's something I'll keep trying to work on but never, ever get done. I'm already planning on my 2013 cosplay list and ugh. >_>

No, it is fairly confusing. They could do with a layout fix (and even presentation for their wigs. Seriously. Y u no show a side or back view of one of your two ponytail wigs.). But once you get used to it, it's fairly easy to navigate in afterwards.
