I think I'm going to ask for my Karasu wig for my birthday, since I think it could get here in time.

Finally I'll feel like I'm actually starting work on him!

Exceedingly lazy this morning. Stop looking at me, incomplete cosplays.

Since my grandma bought me a new, nicer suit jacket today, I think I'm going to take my old suit jacket, sew some tails into the back and use it for Karasu.

Now I just have to figure out what exactly the color on the inside of his coat is. *takes this as an excuse to rewatch the Dark Tournament arc of Yu Yu Hakusho*

FFFFFFFFFFFF....

The 50% coupon that only works for 2 hours...is for PST. >_< I'm on EST so it would be 3 in the morning for the coupon to work. Yeah...no.... Guess I'm not getting an Aiko wig anytime soon.

Also wondering where the heck my flower buttons are. The tracking did say that Wednesday was the last day in the estimated shipping but still getting a bit nervous that they aren't here yet...

My mom says we're not going to FAE for two days. Damn. I wanted to debut both of my costumes, but looks like I can only wear one. This sucks because making cosplay isn't cheap and it's important to rewear costumes so you didn't practically waste your money.

The Joann's nearest us is moving, so they're having a massive sale. Nearly everything is 50% off. I didn't realize that until we got there. A lot of things were out of stock due to that, but I got one of the things I was looking for and something I didn't. (I wanted to buy everything but, eh, poor college student only functions on gift cards, lol).

Taber and I got just over seven yards of black suiting for $3.50 a yard for his Pitch Black cosplay. So excited! X3 It won't happen until after I finish my current projects, but I'm super happy that Taber suggested getting it. I wasn't even aware he actually wanted to do this costume.

Thanks for the advice you guys! I'll keep those in mind! I'll look for a head band close to the color or get a white one and paint it! :3

AHAHA. I'm getting stupidly good at tayloring shirts. No measuring, just eyeballing while sewing and BAM. Perfect fit on the first try. I'm now two steps away from completing blue!Doctor- the suspenders are due in tomorrow, and the eternal hunt for the right pants will continue forever.

Seriously thinking of doing a little series of random things involving cosplay on YouTube. After sitting here and watching a TON of videos of folks just...doing the most inane things, like Vocaloids cooking and Panty and Stocking After School, I'm anxious to come up with something of my own! But I need ideas...and a decent camera...

Finally found some white leggings for Link that weren't either ridiculously expensive or incredibly translucent.

Today at my local Target there were three girls from my school dress as Superheroes. :O
It was Captain America, Wonderwomen and what I believe was Black Cat (because of the mask) but my brother says she was Catwomen. >.>

Anyways I was so happy seeing that three other girls are into super heroes at my school other then myself xD

My friends want to go back to Sakura Con next year. T_T Depending on how early I can get them to plan it I may be able to go because buying 6 months in advance means cheaper plane tickets. So probably not, maybe I can convince them that we should go to AX or something. >.> that way it doesn't interfere with school.

Also...still waiting for glue to dry.

akl;fioubhn HEMS. HEMS CAN GO DIE IN A FIRE.

I am in so much 'stiff pain' now from hemming my sisters skirt for her dress. Oh god, the pain.

But it looks pretty!

I'm now currently figuring out what flower petals to cut out and put on said skirt. I think I'm just going to bs it and make random flowers different sizes/shapes.

Whew...home from ConNooga.

That was pretty awesome, bad weather and drunks considered.
Now...to get back to working on the last of my cosplays....stupid Momocon being next week...I need more time.

Dear convention planners....March is not the month to cram all of the conventions in. You're killing me.

Finally getting the confidence to cosplay Morrigan from Darkstalkers. I have some self esteem issues but I have been working out and feel really good about myself and my body, plus I'll admit my hips looked pretty good in my bodysuit.
