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.

Yesssssss! Good luck on Karasu, I'm sure he'll turn out great~

I managed to hem Yusuke's shirt today and devised a plan to get the tags off his shoes. Also thinking of buying one of those gymnastics dance ribbon's for Sinbad. Blue of course to match, I think it would be fun to have as a prop~

Also, I needed to start writing out cosplay planning lists. I get so very lost without them.

Oh god, cosplay planning lists are my saviors! I have to make a new checklist for every costume!

And thanks, I'm just hoping the coattails don't prove to be as hard as I originally feared

Juban ordered; sleeves finished... all that's left is hemming and dying and I'll be done with the outfit portion for Kenshin! All I need to do now is cut the bangs on the wig... And seeing as how I just brushed up on cutting bangs on myself just yesterday, I can probably do it this weekend after all school projects are done.

Ah, it's so nice to get back into the swing of things! <3

OHBALLS.
I just realized I've spent over $160 on my Merida costume - not even counting the accessories or boots. The boots are going to be real leather and handmade, and will be doing quadruple duty for my Link costume, my Renaissance Faire garb, and my Steampunk costumes. They'll probably cost about $200. Eep. Thankfully the leather for the quiver will be free since my dad went hunting this year. XD

Frayblock needs a different smell. I didn't plan to turn to it, but since my original plan of french seams screwed up the stretch grain, the entire room now reeks of the stuff in my attempt to salvage my work. @__@ Worst headache ever.
In other news, I almost have a bodysuit now, and all of my props just need to be painted. Whoopee.

I'm wishing I hadn't decided to sew this sleeve, all it's extra detailing and do the eyeleting on it while drunk the first time because having to do it again is horrible.

Really hoping we get a snow event this week. Seriously, if we get a little snow, I'll be able to stay home and finish my Pirate Coat... Which will be the last piece for my Pinkie Pie-rate. And then I'll get to dive head first into my husband's Twilight Sarkle robes. Seriously, I just want to be done with this costume set.

Sigh, I am suppose to take my younger brother to shop for fabric this week due to Jo Ann's big coupon promotion, but he's being such a little jerk, I really don't want to take him anywhere! I'm torn between my desire for cheap fabric/coupon usage and teaching him a lesson about respect. I'm so frustrated and angry with him, I really don't even want to be in the same room, let alone a 20 minute car ride....

So, I'm not sure whether this skunk did a good or terrible thing for me.
tl;dr, a skunk got in our vent and since we left the heat on for the night, everything smells horrible.
Everything can be washed out so that's not a problem, but my plans for Momocon have changed since my grandmother now can't have enough time to alter Ririchiyo for me.
I'm being Ciel instead.
I'm sad all our stuff smells disgusting now, but I'm also happy to be Ciel again. I'd like to hang out with friends, meet some new people..and show off my Funtom bunny and have a really awesome excuse to go to Brina Palencia's panel :'3 I'm excited now, I just need to try the costume on again once we clean everything.

Gonna remake my Asuna skirt by using a darker red fabric :P And I couldn't find the glue gun once again so I'm gonna stop by my sister's house and borrow hers for the time being to glue the wire in to my bunny ears.

FINALLY ... after 3 weeks of doing absolutely nothing, I finally got back around to working on costumes again ... and it's a good thing, cuz I only have about 3 weeks to finish this costume before the con, and I'm only about half way done >_>
