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...

I'm going to make a new giant spatula for Ukyo. The foam ending up breaking. Duct tape fixed it enough for the con but I'm going to do what my friend did to make her keyblade. I'm going to cut the shape out of oak with a jigsaw. Although, I'll have my dad help me.

XD Same here with my Chinese homework. i figured tomorrow i have enough time before class to finish it up. Ahhh i feel bad, and at the same time relaxed from my spring break which sadly ends today. Hoping to get something done this week, but i doubt seeing how busy school is appearing this week.

Welp! Link and ~H~, i've finally felt motivated by the two of you also do a secret cosplay, Gijinka syleXD

Joining Reily96 and ashe2kawaii, I have an unfinished French essay. And a Japanese final coming up, although that's my easy class so studying isn't necessary.

On-topic: One of the other instructors in the Japanese department (not my teacher) wants to cosplay.

Is polyester no-pill fleece supposed to be this...translucent?
I just started on a bodysuit thingy made outta fleece and in the test photos you can make out the clothing I'm wearing underneath.
Maybe fleece is supposed to be done in two layers? Maybe I should buy fleece at a different craft chain?
