I really need to cut my Ciel wig, it's ridiculously shaggy.
But I'm scared to. I need to get a different wig to practice on first e.e
I also still need to go sometime soon and look for an undershirt, gloves, and ribbon for Ciel before he arrives.

I've also noticed that I like Kuroshitsuji meetups and meeting other cosplayers from the series. I do. But I despise planned photoshoots for the series for two reasons.
1) I get lost in the sea of Ciels and get left out of half the shots for not having a cosplay partner or being close friends with any of the other cosplayers involved.
2) Everyone and their mother only wants fanservice and funny shots together when I'd like to take some serious ones.
Every Kuro photoshoot I've been to other than the very tightly knit one at AAD, I've despised for these reasons.
But I still need to go to them because if I'm going to get into the fandom, I need to know the people in the fandom here. I think I might stick to picture-taking and photoshoots to smaller cons and just try to hang out on the most crowded days and meet people at larger cons. That seems like it would save me stress.

I wonder what it's like to have a creepy stalker fangirl. It sounds terrifying and hilarious at the same time.

Well...as expected...I am so physically and emotionally exhausted after Momocon that.....it's enough to make me seriously consider not going back.

I appreciate everyone's kind words and being able to make people happy but....I'm....next to done with cosplay groups. I learned quite a bit this weekend....and...most of it was not positive. While I did enjoy some aspects...there were too many that I did not enjoy in the slightest. I've never actually regretted going to a convention before...but this time I'm regretting many of the choices that I made.

I know this could have been a great experience, but...I must say...it really wasn't.

I should catch up on grading, but I think I'm going to paint Richter's axe instead. Wee!

Pretty much. After it's over, you generally get a story to laugh about with friends. During, it's varying shades of annoyance, frustration, and distaste - anxiety/fear if you get a truly off-balanced individual.

Yep, it is. Though for me being able to only go to cons in one state, I have fear afterwards that they'll manage a way to stalk me through every con I go to. I have an emergency contact for them after having my first one today, she basically just said "Bro, I understand and I know all the best hiding spots. Just text me and I'll save your butt from the crazies" XD

Black jean shorts don't seem to exist anymore...lol, jean shorts in general don't seem to exist now XD Maybe it's not warm enough outside for stores to put them out or something...

On the other hand, I have a general idea of what I'm using for a belt thing, and a few options for shirt

HAHAHAHA! T_T I'm sorry these stupid hakama have driven me crazy. I made it for when I was slightly larger... so it doesn't quite look right but I have other stuff to finish so if I have enough time I'll make it then.

Also, Sinbad is done. I'd spray paint my beads for Seymour now...but its pouring down rain outside. So tomorrow...

I found THE PERFECT arm-warmers for Jun Suwabara from Doppelganger: Dawn of The Inverted Souls! It says it's men's arm-warmers, but who cares? She's a tomboy anyway~

YAYY I found a beret for Hungary \=v=/ ! Now all I gotta do is dye it. But it looks like my Hetalia cosplay line up is going to be shuffled up once again -- the wig I need for Spain is out of stock (the one time I was gonna order from Arda so I could finally own one of Arda's famous wigs), and I may need to find someone else to cosplay instead of England since i'm having trouble with him. But definitely cosplaying Hungary; no contest. And when my dad brought me back to the place where I could get the hat I need for soviet!Russia? $100 ;A; ! I of course didn't expect cheap but I guess now i'll have to put off that ver. of Russia for later. Now who to cosplay...

I think I'm going to quickly put together fem!Fry for Naka. My natural hair is like hers, so I don't need a wig. I already have the shirt and Old Navy has a red hoodie on sale. I just need to get a denim skirt. Kohls has them but I think I'll check Saver's first. For a prop, I'm printing out the Planet Express logo and taping it to a box.

Ha, who needs sleep? Okay I lie, it's only 11pm here. I've cut out Jin to sew tomorrow and I worked on the details on my robe sleeve for Seymour

But I've got pre-con nervous now. T_T I need to figure out two more poses for him for the walk on! T_T

Just in the course of the weekend, I've gone from 2 planned cosplays from Yu Yu Hakusho to 5.

My friend and I should not be allowed to skype for hours talking solely about Yu Yu Hakusho XD

When I manage to locate my binder. . . It's somewhere in my pile of stuff I need to bring to kon. I'd freak out my parents if I tried it on at 6:30 am, so er I'll be back with pic's tonight.

Here is a WIP I have of it? pic I just needed to finish my hem, added the gold trim, and fixed his white butt thing. Oh and I have my wig now.
