Thiiiiiis so much. ;o;

I already go to multiple cons a year, but I need to either increase the number of cons I go to or reduce the number of cosplays I do, since I simply don't have enough con time to wear them all. Maybe I need to just retire all my old ones and only wear new ones from now on, but I'm not ready to retire some of them, especially since I'm still planning on fixing up portions of some of my faves, like Lady Blackpearl, Eruca, etc. I'm trying to cram 8 cosplays into 3 days of Fanime, and my planned list keeps growing. With the way this is going, I don't know if I'll be able to wear even something like Ultimecia or The Condesce multiple times, and I've hardly started on those!

Maybe I need to find cosplay meetups, or be content to wear certain cosplays just for photoshoots, or pare down my list quite a bit...or go to more cons.
(I've already had 3 cons this year, with 4 days of cosplay, but one of those cons wasn't really worth dressing up in anything too uncomfortable, unwiedly, or obscure, so I wore my laziest costume, and I still have 4 days of Fanime [3 cosplay days], maybe a day of Kintoki-con [would wear Maj. Kusanagi because of the guests], I don't tend to cosplay to the J-Pop Summit, and 3 days of SacAnime [which I already have at least 2 cosplays planned for], making a grand total of...12 cosplay days? some of which involve multiple costumes in the same day? Still not enough!)

I see people post all the time their cosplays that they have done that year, or that they are planning (and seem to actually complete), and people have a dozen cosplays that they do in a single year, and I have no idea how. Well, I -guess- I have enough con days that I can wear one costume per day and do a dozen, but that's quite a few costumes to make in a single year, and I'd never be able to wear something more than once. (Granted, a lot of these are really simple costumes that can be mostly bought, and mine tend to be a bit more complicated...even my grimdark Rose is going to be more complicated than most!)

Since I want to do a lot of Homestuck cosplay, I could always see about HS meets in my area...that'll add quite a bit of cosplay time, even if most of my planned HS cosplay is more elaborate than most, and I don't -really- want to drag out Mom Lalonde, my lazy cosplay, when I have grand plans for ballgowns and such, which aren't really appropriate for a meetup.

Shinsengumi haori.
Unless you mean happi coats, they are worn to festivals. I think I've seen somewhere once a happi coat styled like a shinsengumi haori, aka with the white mountain sleeve trims.. and I must admit I'd want a happi like that haha. xD

*shrug* I was just going with what my friend from Japan said. I thought it was called something else so I refered to it as the blue coat thing till she told me its a happi coat? O.o I don't know anymore...

That's... weird, because happi are festival coats and not worn with real kimono. Haori are worn with real kimono and the historical shinsengumi didn't prance around in festival gear while patrolling the streets.. at least I hope they didn't. xD

I have officially stolen my dad's giant dark blue sweater for my cosplay of Young Shinobu Sensui from Yu Yu Hakusho. It's so fluffy, I refuse to take it off. This might possible be my most comfortable cosplay yet.

*squeals hysterically because having my day's sweater means that young Sensui is done, and therefor so are 2/3 of my anime USA cosplays *

I decided to play with makeup for my Mab costume, which got mixed results. I really need to get a proper body paint for this - white foundation just doesn't do it, I still look really freaking pink when I put on the silver/white wig. And now my face itches. Bah.

On the bright side - the last of the trim came in for my husband's robes - so I can finish those soon, probably in just one or two evenings of work.
