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!

After playing Harmoknight (great game, if you have a 3DS and like rhythm games I recommend it!) I now want to cosplay Tempo...

Quinn: Hmm, I'd go with a longer wig, as they usually look longer than they are on wig heads.

As for Karneval! It's awesome! I've been following the manga for a while now and have yet to watch the anime episode.
But did they change Hirato's hair in the anime? In the manga it was dark purple...
Finally get to wear my Gareki cosplay this Sunday with my friend as Nai. =D

And Makishima's knife is coming along pretty well.

Oh okay. Yeah, I agree with your friend that might be too short. He has a couple longer hair pieces that go down his shoulder and the wig does not have those.

Yeah his hair looks black in the anime. I went back and watched it again though, and it appears to be such a dark purple that it's barely noticeable as purple unless I really look for it. Thank you for making me taking a second look!

As for the wig, thanks for the feedback people. I'll keep looking. Thank god I have until August.

I'm thinking of fixing up my Yugioh GX cosplays...my Jesse wig needs bangs cut into it so then after I can style the bangs like his. And i'd like some extensions to add volume so when I spike it (properly; gaahh) it has more fibers to work with and make the spikes look fuller. Same with my Alexis wig - also needs bangs cut into it. Though i'm thinking of getting a new wig for her because the wig I have isn't really her hair colour, but it can can work because everyone i've seen who's cosplayed her uses a light blonde colour wig. And I can still use the old one.
I also need new pants for Jesse, and i'm re-making part of the top for Alexis.
And I don't know how, but the shoes I got to use for Jesse ended up getting yellow-ish stains on them and i'm not sure how to get them out...ive looked up online and tried some stuff I read but it didn't really work >.<.. I even tried using detergent/dish soap first and still nothing. Does anyone have any idea on how to get them out?

First coat of paint is down on the base of Richter's sword. Spent a few hours this morning putting on all the hilt guard details. The sealant is drying now, and then I can finish up the paint.

The sword is moving so much faster than the axe did. (yay.) I'll probably have finishing shots by tomorrow.

Been busy the past two days.

Rewashed PiC's Grell coat, the monster red blob
Purchased black slip-ons for Judal (wondering about socks)
Picked up black fabric for Judal's ponytail ON SALE
Thoroughly confused mother with egg-shaped hairball experiments
Grabbed $1/yd fabric from the closing fabric store down the road that only ever has floral prints (rough drafts ahoy)
PiC's Mor wig came in, great color and looks great on her
Went on a wild adventure and got some hippie bangles for Judal (need more bracelets, MOAR)
PiC got fitted for contacts and will be getting them on Wednesday (all my proud, all of it)


Zeo: My go-to stain remover is usually vinegar.
