I came $100 under budget for my next cosplay's materials. That means I can splurge a bit on the prop.

I want to work on my cosplay but I have the urge to just work on my sisters, since hers has details I can do where as Veran I have to manipulate into some how becoming 3 dimensional. :/ Although I do kind of need my sisters done a month before mine because I have to take it up there for her to try it on make sure it fits.

So I'm pretty much painting for the entire day, will probably barely get started on embroidery. If I do. Then after that I still need to bead.

OMG. Gale of Darkness. DOOO ITTTTTT.

I think.. I think I will get this petticoat. Yes, it is $65 but this would be so much easier than making it myself. Plus I tried calculating the cost of fabric and such and this is the better option. I'm going to need to sell off some cosplay stuff though so I can afford to make Koromaru as well.

GALE OF DARKNESS, oh my god. That will forever be my favorite Pokemon game. I'd like to go and play it if our game room actually had a suitable temperature (right now it goes from being ice cold to suffocatingly hot) I too have wanted to cosplay the protag for a while now.

Also, I have a horrible urge for cosplaying cocky manly men right now.
I'm considering attempting to make my dark blue wig work temporarily for Fushimi just to let this urge go away.
Fushimi and Izaya are just all over my brain right now despite not watching a lot of [K] or Durarara. And Nezumi, though I don't think he's cocky? I have watched too few of these series!!

I don't think I've ever seen anyone cosplay him!

And by the way I'm actually re-playing through Pokémon Colosseum currently. xD

Tried loosening the curls on my Tsumugi wig and it turned out horribly frizzy, so now I've got to re-curl it. Urrggghhh.

I remember someone saying on here that for long wigs, buy from Epic Cosplay instead of Arda, since theirs don't tangle as much. I looked at both websites, and while the ones from Epic Cosplay were nice, I thought "Well, I've always bought from Arda, so I guess I'll order one from them!"

Yeah...

I took it out of the package and it's a mess. I don't have time to get a new one, but my stylist said she'd help me fix it. I have nothing against Arda, their wigs are great! But I think I'm just going to buy their short and seasonal wigs from now on.

I have (or had before I cut it shorter) a butt-long wig from Epic Cosplay. Honestly, if you store it properly (even just carefully putting it back into its bag) it won't tangle very much. The only reason mine got such a mess is because I was stupid and stuffed it into its bag one day @.@; Yeah, not a good idea.

On that note, I started watching Amnesia again.
I shouldn't have started watching Amnesia again.
Ikki and Shin are calling me. Especially Ikki. Blue color scheme, tailcoat, gets all the chicks. Mm.
..But I still need to finish the series before I decide anything. That opinion could change easily (I just have it in my sig since it's my opinion now)
..It also kills me because I know somewhere I have blue eyeliner I could practice his spade with. >:U WHERE IS IT.

I'm kind of irritated that Metathiax isn't going to be ready for MTAC, so I'm going to have to maaaaajourly cut her down. Black hair instead of red hair, red eyes instead of black and white eyes, no horns -- maybe I'll be able to find something else to use in place of them, I'll have to use my regular spiky teeth instead of my gross ones, and I won't have my gross fingernails ready to use at MTAC either.

AGH.

I'm not really sure what I want to do with my Cardcaptor Sakura cosplay in terms of embellishments....part of me wants to do something and part of me wants to just leave it. But it's CLAMP. CLAMP is the epitome of crazy fancy dressy gravity-defying outfits.

You should do ittt. And I'm cosplaying Heroine so yeah!

GAH! The emblem for Marie's bag...the sharpie smudged everywhere when I coated it in modge podge. -_-. It look a bit crappy now but I don't have more gold craft foam to make another so I'm just going to go with this I guess...
