I actively work on one main sewing project/costume at a time, although I'm usually gathering fabrics and supplies for the next one at the same time.

Currently, I've got the pieces of my husband's Twilight Sparkle robes sitting unassembled in the basement sewing room. Lined up and waiting for the pattern is my 10th doctor suit, with muslin test run. I have wigs for all current cosplays, and several beyond that... I'm a bit of a wig addict.

On a separate note, I would love to be home working on things. Work has been hellish today, to the point I just want to lock myself in the basement and sew. And I can't even work on stuff tonight, due to prior commitments. Grrr....

Gotta find a loose pair of black pants that match this uniform jacket, and then sew stitches on them. Although the first pair I made were ok, they're too short. I've finally accepted that I screwed up. Here we go again.

Sewing wise, I tend to focus on getting one cosplay done before moving on to the next one unless I get frustrated then I'll work on something else.

Oh boy, not sure what I just got myself into. . . I'm apparently hosting a Open Kingdom Hearts Photoshoot in July. Least the only thing I need to do is buy the wig for Xemnas and apparently I'm the only Organization 13 person. . .Oups?

Typically, I don't (focus). I take advantage of sales and promotions to get pieces for cosplays that I know I will definitely do, even if I don't complete them for years. I have tons and tons of partial cosplays because of that.

As far as things I make, I guess it's just one at a time. School keeps me busy, and I can only sew rather simple pieces, so that minimizes my workload.

Turns out I actually hate the new design I came up with for Manectric and I'm going to redesign for a fourth time. What's wrong with me? ;A;

Oh well, at least I'm drawing a clever design for Eevee right now.

*flings things around* -_- I obviously cannot read the metric system correctly. The eyes for Koromaru came in but they are wayyyy too small. So I need to reorder eyes. Have to doubecheck the size this time too.

Aw, I'm sorry. That stinks. Reminds me of how my mom was about to reorder the yellow T-shirt I used for my Jolteon cosplay because it was somewhat tight and see-through on me. @_@ I told her it was okay because I didn't feel like waiting all over again and that I'd just where a tank top underneath so people wouldn't see my parts.

Now I'm hooked, at a cliffhanger and waiting for the rest of the english patch.

Watching the current season of Hetalia made me remember that I still have a North Italy wig...I should finally get an outfit to go with it. Not sure yet which one, though (originally planned to do Chibitalia, but who knows xD).

Not sure which cosplay I should concoct a beach-friendly version of for a gathering in August. Izaya is looking like the best option. No wig, no problem.

OMG. "Skin-color" tights. Whose skin tone? Not mine! "Nude" tights? My legs don't look bare, they look like I'm wearing pale-colored tights! Tan skin + "skin-color" anything + living overseas in a country where 99% of women are lighter than me = ARRRRGGGHHHH
