So my sister and I went shopping yesterday and I found the perfect cardigan I can use to be casual!England .
Although I don't have my wig yet; the wig i'm getting is actually for me to cosplay Norway but it can also work for England as well.

So not only am I almost done with my friend's Prince Diamond jacket that I'm making her, but we reconsidered our plans for Anime USA, meaning I have more time to work on Karasu's coat tails and get them looking as good as they possibly can.

So now instead of going as Kurama and Karasu from Yu Yu Hakusho at AUSA on friday, we're going as Itsuki and the teenage version of Sensui from the same thing. This has potential to be fun.

We should make a 'how to get started with cosplay' sticky, so new cosplayers don't have to start a new thread every time. Anyone else think so?

I will forever love the game and I think it's really nice to meet other fans~ I also think you'd make a wonderful protag if you decide to cosplay him!!

And by the way I'm actually re-playing through Pokémon Colosseum currently. xD
This reminds me that I also want to cosplay Wes as well! (I'll get to them eventually, but I really need to stop replaying the game now so that the urges stop!)

@Quinn: I'm very excited to see those cosplayed! They will be SUPER AWESOME!

In other news, went babysitting today and got some funds~ Using it to get the last of the stuff for Yusuke for sure, as well as stuff for Teito!

Agreed. Though I do think it'd take a lot of time to come up with that starting list..
But it'd also be cool to have one singular thread for them to post more specific questions for older cosplayers can answer as well. (where to get a certain wig or such) The starting post could just be the basics of getting started with your costumes and maybe link back to other helpful threads about con etiquette/cosplay etiquette when actually at a con.

I remember playing it when I was younger and the only reason I loved it was because it had Eevee. Though it is just an awesome game..I need to go play it again.

And Wes! I like his design better than GoD's protag, but I haven't had a chance to actually play his game :'( I need to go back and play all the Pokemon games that were actually on consoles. I remember them being really fun.

SO MUCH STUFF got delivered to my college address while I was at home! I got the rest of the fabric swatches for Koromaru(have to think about which furs to use now..) along with the beret for Heroine and...the AMNESIA ARTBOOK! I'm so excited to look in it but I'm holding myself back until after I finish making the second rolled rose that goes on the beret(and possibly attach them onto the beret tonight...) before opening the artbook.

The issue is, we already have threads out there for every single question they've been asking. All they have to do is take the time to actually look. Personally, I'm getting tired of seeing people ask the same things over and over when there are already several answers out there for them.


I think....I kind of made some sort of progress...ish. I really hate cutting fabric...and patterns...are kind of not my friend. So..no wonder this is such a slow process for me, lol. At this rate I'll be done with a 'simple' project next year.

I just really wish one of the things I ordered would be shipped out soon.
I mean, I guess it's good that they're probably not gonna show up at my college address during spring break, but I'm getting impatient. v.v

AMNESIA ARTBOOK. OH MY GOD.
...You are sending me pictures.
As well as letting me stalk you for progress pictures on Heroine.
(I really love all the costumes you are working on now, man. I really do.)

Well yes, but to be fair a ton of those threads are buried deep in General Chat. I know how I was first coming onto this forum since its layout was a lot different than what I was used to, and it can be hard to grasp at first, muchless will they really want to search through pages of a site they probably have little to no experience of using to answer a question when they think the quick and easy way is to make a new thread to ask one simple question.
So having it all in one collective thread, even if it does just link back to those, would be a bit more helpful. (and keeping the questions for any topic there contained in that one thread would help quite a bit, too.)

Also, self stop arguing with yourself. You like Ikki more and you know you'll look better as him than as Shin. JUST DO IT.

Time consuming or challenging or not...it seems we're encouraging people to continue to repeat questions all the time. Half the time even when people link the threads it seems to do nothing. I'm not saying that's how it always works but lately, it has happened a good bit. Everyone's been new at some point, that's how it is with anything and everything. I'd just assume that when on a new website you attempt to look through it and try to figure it out so you didn't have to be constantly asking questions.
It seems there's also a pretty decent number who've "lurked" or just been waiting to get an account.
Don't get me wrong...questions aren't a bad thing and I'm all for being able to help someone out but I'm not okay with trying to help but having any attempts/actions or links ignored....that sort of thing just gets on my nerves.


Come on cosplay motivation, get back here. I have crap to finish.

Did some hardcore cosplay material buying today! Got everything I need for one cosplay, and just need to get everything sewn/modified and wait for one commission part to be done! Then I'm ready for my convention in May ^.^

Bad part is another cosplay I was looking to do completely failed! Went to look for a blue suit at a thrift store, and failed hard. Of course it was just one store, so maybe I'll have better luck later :/

SOOO... Japanese homework never got done. I'm being so bad right now... But it's really hard to not procrastinate when the professor is pretty much saying your homework isn't due until the test day. >.> On the bright side, most of my other homework is done and I can sew kimono lining tomorrow! Yay!

Sure. Any preferences for pictures you want? Or we can just talk about this on fb. Lol And I'm glad you enjoy all of my costumes.


Finished my Heroine beret! Really love how it looks. Even if it did take me about 2 hours to get it done...
