I'll cosplay Shin if I end up hating Ikki for some reason. But so far (An episode into his arc) I'm enjoying the difference. I LIKE PLAYERS-TURNED-LOVEY OKAY.

Also thinking of making a card making tutorial. I've been getting so many questions about how to make my persona tarot cards that honestly, it's starting to get a bit tiring of answering the same questions again and again and again. I'm not planning on making any more cards at the moment though...
I would appreciate this though I have no idea when or what I will actually end up cosplaying from Persona 3 >.<;

The bad thing is, I have $25 right now and I can scrape together $4 more in change. I literally have just enough for Ikki's wig and slightly over enough for Shin's. But I need to get the last accessories for Ciel....but I want the wig...ugh.

I've also decided not to use more money and get another Ciel wig. I'll compare between my first and most recent one and see which one looks the best to me with the new outfit I'm getting. AND THIS IS WHY. I KNOW HOW LITTLE I WILL COSPLAY CIEL ONCE I ACTUALLY DO IT PROPERLY.
(Also, I would love to do a type of maid cafe as the Amnesia characters. That would be great but I would suck at being a butler too.)

Apparently the weekend my local costume shop opens for the year falls the same weekend as the city's St. Patrick's Day parade. Eff that. Took us 30 minutes to find parking and another 15 to fight our way through green-clad crowds. It was a total nightmare, but I ended up with a sword to use as a base for Richter's. I've done the mock-up and started construction. More sanding in my future, haaaaaa.

I won't get any more done this weekend though - heading to a WBC game tomorrow! ^_^

I ended up writing up the whole tutorial! XD I'm going to wait until I have some pictures to put up with it though since it is very boring looking right now.

AND YES. They have such pretty hair! <3.

Wow... wool felt is sure worth the extra money I've thrown at it. All the red stains that were on it for some reason or another have washed away by simply using water!

Seymour was a hot mess ugh... Well least I know how I want to fix the wig. Maybe a clear plastic thing to keep the robe from showing my breast area? O.o I really thought double sided tape would work but it so didn't. But least it turned out wellish? I think I may have ended up on a 'bad cosplay' blog because of it. I think its going to be my constant WIP cosplay...

Anyways, I also got to wear Jin and Murasakibara the past two days which were awesome cosplays to do. I've got four cosplays for later today. lol

Actually getting some progress done today! Almost done using Mod Podge to seal the craft foam detailing for the scabbard, and have primed and painted the foamboard base. At least having to wait for things to dry allows me to get tasks done around the house and type up some paperwork that I need for the week.

Still having a hard time finding appropriate plastic potion bottles for Link - the glass ones look cool and all, but I wanted something that wouldn't break if accidentally dropped, as I am fairly clumsy. ;-)

Sounds like a plan. Maybe if you get bored and have some free time you can make a card to go along with it.

Ugh I know. Ikki and Shin's hair is both fabulous. This is actually a really tough decision. Shin it felt like the heroine connected with more but she also had no idea what was going on and kept rejecting him, so I never felt attached to him even though his world was really happy and cool...Ikki I liked more but everyone around her HATED her in his world so it felt kind of sad to me...God, stop changing the environment, it's messing up my perception of these characters ;A;

I also totally forgot one of my friends (who was going to be Tsukimi whenever I cosplayed Kuranosuke) just recently got her Heroine wig in. I really want to form this up into a group. Can this please happen. *.*

Finished Izaya at the restaurant last night-- The waitress seemed to think it was cool. Then I was fawned over with a lint roller, then SUPER SMASH BROTHERS AND DANCING AND RAFFLE AND I had fun last night.

Now I want to make All The Cosplays, but I don't have my materials.

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.
