Holy Shiitake after an entire day of scouring eBay, I think I found my Ernest Nightray wig!

Just gotta run it by my wig stylist friend first.

Also, since I now have the pattern I'm going to use for my friend's Camellia Luka top, I realized that she is not an hourglass figure so I need to go up like...3 sizes so her waist will fit. -_- I'm going to need to take the bust part in so much... Why are you so hard to work with patterns!?

Finished shaping Richter's sword! Wee, no more sanding for a while!

Waiting for the sealant to dry and then I can start painting. ^_^

Yay! My goodies are a beautiful shade of blue, and the bubbles have either disappeared or travelled. I'll know if any of them are viable in a few days.

Here's hoping that you feel better! I'm always worried about my fellow cosplayers! Though...you could probably watch something...better...

So the goggles for my future Canada cosplay arrived yesterday. They look pretty nice. Now, I just have to wait for the plushie to get here, and somehow find someone I trust to take my measurements for the outfit.

Cutting fabric is nerve-wracking.

I have never felt more "I need to MAKE ALL THE COSPLAYS" in my life. XD

Thank god I have quite a few projects. Perfect new fitted leotard pattern, make Super Saturn's bust armor, collar, and glove bands, steam set my red furisode juban to set the dye and prevent further bleeding (with further protection by then soaking it in a dye fixative and washing it one last time with Synthrapol), carefully remove the bled dye from the lining of my furisode (thank god the stain is right on a seam of the lining, so I can just open it carefully and stick a cloth inside to protect the outer fabric from getting bled onto as I remove the stain), and once everything is said and done (and I can afford to splurge on the fabrics), Princess Saturn!

I can't really tell from the picture how long his hair is but it looks like it would be fine to me. 0_o

I stumbled upon this on ebay. It's so...HUGE but I love the greens on it and it's not Miku green! The size though...I don't know if it would go together with Camellia Gumi overall.

:-/ Bah. I second-guessed myself and went with that second, shorter, measurement I took. Totally should've gone with that longer one. But this Tegan cosplay is going to be done on the cheap, and I don't have time to re-do the entire jacket. I'll just have to deal with it being 2" too short... I'm really doubting anybody will notice.

All my feelings. I never made it to my satin. Stopped after the interfacing ;_;


On another note I can't stop spending all my free cash on new lipstick colors. Curse my need to buy girly things and have appropriate lipsticks for all characters!
