@cashmoney2292: I think you should get them commissioned.

is it normally cheaper compared to buying them?

I don't know too much about commissioning, but it likely depends on the commissioner how much your costume will cost.

Actually, commissions rarely, if ever, cost less than purchased costumes.

Successfully finished raw edges on organza capelet.

LEVEL UP.


Seriously though, I didn't know how hard organza would be to work with. it frays all over the place. Definitely skipping that for any future costumes unless I have to use it for something. On the plus side it turned out decently.

Was gonna take pretty pictures as Gumi on Friday but I tore up my knee during volleyball tonight so that's probably not going to happen because I wanted to wear a dress. Maybe I should take more Gokudera pics or more High Five Ghost pics instead?

Holy crap, why is it so hard to find a nice sized black and white checkerboard pattern with diamonds instead of squares picture that doesn't have a watermark on it!? I just want my Amnesia cards to have accurate backs. T_T

-nursing a headache-

Today is that day when making progress is nearly impossible. I've been working on Skyward Link's waist bit all day long and I'm pretty much back where I started. Minus a zipper, which I managed to kill with nearly magical proficiency.

As it's my spring break, I'm rather worried that I won't get anything done while I have the chance. I have a lot to do, and I know I won't finish all of it, but I thought I'd have a lot more done already. :/ Specifically this stupid waist part.

Ugh I hate hemming circle skirts.....but what I hate more is when I run out of thread while I'm still sewing. Now I gotta look for more -_-

So, I admittedly can't make my own outfits due to my failing eyesight. But...I kinda want to gain notoriety for my cosplay attempts. Should I even bother trying? I know for a fact most photographers won't look at those that don't match the character's skin color, as they're not "perfectly cosplaying the character", but I really would love to try and get myself noticed at least a little bit...

You don't really realize how much cosplay crap gets spread around your room when you work sporadically (for me, at least.) Zombie shirt in sleep clothes drawer. Miss Martian collar and tooth wax in jewelry box. Slade mask on bookshelf. Luffy shirt wadded up on bed. Tubes of fake blood in makeup bag. Old falsies EVERYWHERE.

Wow, my life is sad.

@Naudae: Hmmmm, that's tough. Most "known" cosplayers, whether internationally, nationally, state-wide, or local, put some amount of time, effort, and money into their cosplays. If you can't sew, try your hand at modifying things, building weapons/props, styling wigs, makeup/fx makeup, or even editing AMV's. On a different note, you could be the guy who asks people to do a silly pose for photos (either alone or with you).
