I'm trying to decide if it would be too rediculously silly to make a bolero pirate coat out of a minky fuzzy fabric or some sort of terry cloth. It's for Pinkie Pie, and the rest of the outfit is already fabulously random, with at least 5 other fabrics and shades of pink. I'm just not sure how well the fuzzy would go, or translate. It's either that or I order some stretch velvet online, and wait the 2+ weeks before it actually arives.

Granted, if I get it, and it doesn't work in the least, I'm so making a Pinkie Pie bolero for "normal" wear anyway.

I'm having a difficult time being excited about cosplay these days. People are making it more about competing against each other then having fun and enjoying each other's company. It's really bitter and stressful :'(

Was styling the bangs on my Tsumugi wig last night and was so happy with how they came out. I was like, "wow, this is perfect!" Then I realized that I had been doing it in front of the mirror and failed to remind myself to style on the opposite site. So the bangs were on the wrong side, and I had to style further to get them right. I think I saved them, but they're a bit shorter than I would have liked...

I got hit with a burst of motivation to keep working on Maria, but now I realize part of why I stopped for so long: I HATE drafting. All I'm doing is making an applique of a basic eagle head and all I can do stare at the paper. What are proportions mwraaaa!

I love all of this positive reception to Kuzco. XD

Heroine wig came in! The color is so nice and the wig is pretty soft. I just need to hair spray the bun a bit so none of the hairs pull out more than it already is. -_- Also will probably enlist the help of my sister to make the braid a bit smaller. It feels too big to me.

@Touchman: Nice wig! I watched the first episode last night. I love their outfits, but I don't know if I like Heroine too much. She seems a bit--flat. Are you part of a group?

Yeah. Heroine is very....bland for pretty much the whole anime. Lol. From what I read of the game, she's a bit more pro-active in that. XD And yup, a group for Otakon. ^_^ We have all of the guys and Orion.

Was able to successfully exchange my Tri-Top binder for a larger size, and it does a better job of helping to flatten things than the smaller size (which just made things look ridiculous). Hopefully this will work out with a loose fitting tunic (a little hard to hide the girls when they are this big).

Also painting the back of my shield and some button "rivets" to glue into the front. Would be great if I could tackle most of the scabbard this weekend. I have a lot of meetings at work next week and that will likely be so mentally draining I'll want to just come home every night and go to sleep rather than work on cosplay. -_-;

Been working on making a faucet pipe from wire, pvc pipe and paper mache. This is more tedious than I thought it'd be, I've almost got the pipe base covered and the wire is mostly set right, but it bends too easily and none of my family is filling to help me hold things.
Guh.
