I don't know what your new icon IS, but god it's cute <3

On my front, ugh. I really hope I end up having enough for my Grell wig and glasses. I'd really like to have him done before Undertaker, knowing that now I have pendants taken care of and don't have to slave over those for who knows how long and that the makeup I have won't work well for his scar </3.
Spending $9 on food is never a fun experience when you're saving every penny for cosplay D:<
Though sister and I did go into an antique store and spent an hour there. Twas fun. Really would like to have an old, nice tea set for pictures.

Omg, I have to buy a crap load of things for my upcoming cosplays, and I need them next week! I need to buy toy gun, duffel bag, a mask, gloves, bolo tie, lots of spray paint, and need to buy things to make a sword scabbard! At least I bought the swords off ebay, so I can start painting those next week. FML!!!! XD

I've been on this site for almost 9 years and I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, I might actually upload some pictures of my costumes. Now that my photographer friend has got some good ones of the two most recent. And I've graduated from hand sewing everything to knowing my way around a decent machine. And I've learned how to put up mid-thigh-length hair under a wig.



Also, it's plausible that I could use a forum icon change...

So, small university con is coming up... LittleKuriboh is going so I was all like "khgasdfkasgdfshagdf HE'S COMING TO THIS INCREDIBLY TINY CON IN MY UNIVERSITY? Thank you universe for this excellent birthday present."

And I also found out that said small con is going to have a costume contest... Chances are, it's going to be popularity based and not craftsmanship based since the con is so tiny and doesn't have that much staff going on... But me, being the horrid, uber competitive spazmaniac that I am want to enter and goddamn do I want to win. I can't enter Zelda, because she's already won an award and that would be cheating... I could probably enter Kenshin - not a bad choice if the contest is run off of popularity as I suspect... But I don't know, I wish there was a crazier costume I could enter - but Len isn't anywhere near ready. I really wish ic ould afford to finish Gakuko too! Augh, she would've been perfect! Stupid $40 wig and no money for sleeve fabric. -w-

Speaking of Len, WEEKEND. I still have lots of drawing homework to do but I know for sure that I can manage to get that much needed sewing done! THIS WILL GET DONE TOMORROW OR SUNDAY. If it isn't, I'm so screwed since I won't have time for anything else. D:

Also, with Ib 1.5 out and the new endings I really want to cosplay Ib. Bah. I need to make that tie and skirt, though, and... well, no money for that. Grr... COSPLAY GODS. THROW ME FREE OR EXTREMELY LOW PRICED FABRIC FOR GAKUKO AND IB. PLEEEEASE. D'oh...

Lol I'm a bit like....I need to go buy new binding now. Tokiya's back shows in his coat my current binding is white so I figured if I buy the tan underworks binder it should be alright? O.o My boobs are rather big so I think its about the only way its going to work out for me. And Ai~

Sweet, going to go to Goodwill tomorrow or Sunday. I've made a small mental list of stuff I'm hoping to find. One being a white suit and two being a green coat.

I start off with putting it into two low braids and using the teeniest of rubber bands to hold the ends. Then I coil up each braid so they each form a nice, flat spiral against the back of my head, like a bun except no two pieces of braid overlapping. And I use about 15 bobby pins per side to keep them there. Then I put a wig cap and then the wig.

After a lot of practice, probably 8 or 9 attempts at putting on wigs, my hair stays up pretty sturdily and the wig goes on without looking lumpy or like it's covering up 40 inches of hair.

I can wear Chinese wigs from Ebay with no major issues, and Coscom and Epic wigs fit excellently.


For reference, here is my hair~

^Wow that's impressive my hair is pretty thick so I have a hard time keeping it under, but I'll try it sometime. Speaking of hair and wigs! I just bought mine I'm cutting my hair in June to either a bob or boy cut so we'll see what happens. Either way I'll have real hair for one cosplay and a wig for the other

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.
