I felt like a god when showing my mother around Joann's. Sure, I was just showing her the book of patterns and explaining what brocade was, but still, it was pretty cool.

I also realized that my cosplay partner has one problem: Her wigs never follow her. She always forgets them whenever she goes cosplaying about. One time a blond wig was left on a bottle of vodka-- That got an interesting series of questions later. But I'm thinking maybe she doesn't like wigs and doesn't know how to say so...?

Hum. So my latest batch of LEDs came in, and after much agonizing, I realized that there is no simple way to make them removable from Luigi's Poltergust. So I placed an order for a second rug tool for the vacuum, so that I can simply remove that and replace it as needed.

I swear this makes sense. XD

Ended up remaking the bodice for Camellia Gumi. It looks so much better now and it fits better too. I'm going to have to test it later though to see how restricted my movements are so I know what I can and can't do.

Also need to cut that petticoat... T_T

Gah! DX I finally made it to the R season of Sailor Moon and it's making me A) want to wear my Sapphire cosplay around the house and B) work on my friend's Prince Diamond cosplay that I agreed to make her. I can't though, because my dad said the way I was doing the jacket looked really bad and insisted on helping, so I can't work on it until he finds a way to make it better.

I just started watching Black Butler and I'm itching to cosplay as Mey Rin for next year! Ugh! I can't be getting anymore ideas!

But she's just so adorable and she's not done very much! Mey Rin is crazy like me too! Decisions...Decisions...Decisions.

Guess who FINALLY got around to uploading the photoshoot when I did as Kohaku from Grand Guignol Orchestra at Anime USA!

(They're the last 7 photos on that pages. The ones where I actually have a black tie and makeup on.)

I was determined not to have stitch seams on the black part of Sailor Star Fighter's bra top...so I folded over the edges of my PVC fabric and used hot glue to bind it. I also used thin wire so that I can shape the pointy ends the way I want them to look! I was worried it wouldn't work but it looks great! I <3 hot glue guns!!!!

So I'm running a convention this coming weekend, and realizing how freaky prepared I am this year for it (it be year 3). Instead of freaking out and not sleeping because of prep work, I totally worked on Sabriel for two hours tonight (who I'm not even BRINGING to this con). It's nice to be figuring this thing out.

Classe Wig is having another 5-week sale event (the first week will end in 1 hr 20 min). I'm highly tempted to take advantage of the 2nd week 20% off sale to get a wig for Lightning, and maybe a wigs for Fang and Yuna.

Attached the main LEDs to Luigi's Poltergust. It looks great, but the weight of them is a bit much, so now I have to find a way to better stabilize them. Plus I'm not sure what to do with the pesky battery pack. And I think I'm going to cut apart the handle to match the new game design because why the hell not.

And I thought this would be an easy prop. Hahaha.

ARGH. I'm trying to decide what poem to put on my Cocoa shirt. My roommate asked Yuumei about it but she only told us that any poem will do. But being someone who really likes being accurate, I tried searching some of the words in hopes of finding the original poem she used to no avail. Guess I will just have to pick one that's fitting and just roll with it. Oh well.

Might have to find an alternative method to making my Godoka wings, too... I totally don't have time for this. I more or less have a day left. WHY CAN'T SAKURA CON BE NEXT WEEK... OTL

Blah. Even with taking off a tier off of the petticoat it is still pretty much the same length-wise. -_- I'm thinking of going to plan b where I shorten the thing the tiers rest on to make it a bit higher. This is causing more trouble than it needs to..
