I might forgo the felt covering on the hilt of Richter's axe. Trying to get it fitted exactly around the detailing I added...ugh. In hindsight, I should have done the felt first, and then the extra detailing.

Oh well. It really won't be noticeable to anyone except myself, so I suppose I'll choose a more reasonable method.

Related: I should be able to pick up a wooden sword this weekend for the base for Mani. Should be considerably easier/faster than Sol was. .-.

I wonder if I'll ever cosplay a character that gives me a good excuse to learn some magic tricks.

Guess what! Guess what! Guess what!!!!!

I just ordered my Kuro Usagi/princess bubblegum/Anis wig!!!! I'm soooo happy that I'm finally going to be getting something in the mail again! It's been so long! :'D

And then very soon (okay maybe not that soon xD) but I'll finally get to order my Stocking Anarchy wig! I'm really scared about that wig because it'll be suuuuuuper long! But I love it! I'll be doing a lot of casual outfits for her! Then I'll most likely make her school uniform and then her gothic lolita dress next! I promise to post pics when I get them! (I'll be a camera whore xD)

Seymour has made me lose my mind. . . Least the wig is almost done.

I somehow managed to make my linning shorter then the outer layer. Not sure how I managed that considering the lining was a few inches longer when I cut it out... So I did a magic trick? O.o So to the seam ripper! I can't machine sew but I can finish my sleeve then tomorrow all I'll have to do is trim my wig hairline and sew the lining/trim. I'll probably do it when I go home for dinner from Kawaii Kon. ><;

I'm in real need of figuring out how to make arm warmers and possibly leg warmers for this Vaporeon gijinka. I've never sewn...anything...so I'm looking for any kind of substitute that may work.

Also, any suggestions on a wig? I'm kinda looking at maybe a medium length one. Basically, I'm thinking of doing something like having twin tails kinda hang out of the hood while it's up. I just need some suggestions of styles/colors that would look right with it.

I'll be very happy if that's the case, but I doubt it. :/ Whatever the case, Len needs to get done before I head off to Japan in May, else he won't be done for the con in July since I get back mid-June!

Holy crap, that fabric is BEAUTIFUL! <3

Arm warmers and leg warmers are pretty easy to make.

As for possible wigs... this one or this one? I think could work... I was trying to find a white to blue gradient wig because that would look awesome but I couldn't find anything in my quick search.



And question for girls, has anyone used silicone strapless bras? How well do those work? I think I might invest in one since I have SOOO many cosplays this year I can't wear a normal bra for.

If you've got a chance to watch Darker Than Black, there's always this guy. Or Uten, from Needless, who is significantly more derpy and might be more fun, if you don't want to cosplay a calm, collected, suave type.

Are you talking about the ones that are adhesive cups - no back? If so - I've used those, years ago, and it worked pretty well for the home coming dress I couldn't wear a normal bra with. It was just enough coverage and some support, but not as much as a normal one. Also, your mileage may vary on this, as it sort of depends on how endowed you are - strapless/adhesive bras may not play nicely with larger chests. If possible, try it on - that's the only way you'll really be able to decide if it'll work for you.

I really need to stop coming up with MLP humanized costumes. I currently have 2 casual Pinkie Pie costumes in the works, in addition to the Pie-rate one. And now I've got designs for what would be a fancy looking but simple Fem!Discord/Eris costume, done as a Greek Goddess. I'm over thinking it now - instead of it being a super simple throw together, I'm pulling my Ancient Studies research out and trying to use semi accurate materials and measurements. Bah.

If it's the adhesive bras, I have one. They work reasonably well and are pretty comfy, but I find they don't offer a lot in the way of support. They mostly pull things together, not help keep them up. I use mine for when I need to make insane cleavage for Erza.

Also, if you sweat, it stays trapped under the silicone against your skin, so it may not be best to wear one for very long periods of time, especially in hot weather or in a demanding costume.

But like Clockwork_Ducky says, your mileage may vary; everyone's body is different.

So. I got all parts of Makishima's outfit assembled. Yay me! xD
Still, I wonder if I should make the shirt more slim...
