Got lots of wig stuff done last night. Also discovered that PiC's head is way bigger than mine and wearing her wigs just looks weird on me. Also discovered that I look like a creeper wearing Sheik's wig, which is pretty okay.

How do you guys have time for all this work? Haha

I have made the unfortunate realization that my Sakura wig is too thin, and because it's so thin it can't be as short as it is cause the very bottom of my hair can be seen. It's such a beautiful wig and I have enough hair to make wefts if I can figure out how to.

Have you even gotten a wig that was just really really sparse? Like for a light-colored wig you'd think it would be twice as thick but it's the thinnest wig I've ever seen.

Ahh I love it but I don't know what to doooooo

I just finished the hardest part of my Natsume (harvest god attire) cosplay! I could always be wrong about the giant flower petals being the hardest (I've still got an obi, collar and some small details to do), but I'm glad to be done with it either way.

I've never personally used it, but I've seen this tutorial around, which may be helpful?

Unfortunately yes. D: My friend's Lucy wig. It's a golden blond wig and so so so thin in the back you can see all the wefts and her tan wig cap through the hairs.

It's also from Arda, which everyone says has the thickest wigs ever ever. DD: Everyone except us seems to love them.

WELL, I HAVE A LOT TO DO TOMORROW. I was planning on doing my sewing tonight but I don't think that's going to happen. I'm really not feeling it tonight. I really have to work more during the day because I always say, "I'll do it tonight" during the day when I feel confident it will get done, but I never end up doing it during the night. So tomorrow, after the niece leaves, I'll be doing my sewing, and hopefully, maybe Tuesday night, we can look into finishing the kimono. I might also be able to start on some wig styling tomorrow too. Again, I am nervous about this. I've never dealt with styling to this extent before. But I can do it! So long as I have hair spray and bobby pins, it can be done!

Started the riding crop for my Alice group member (Tales of Symphonia: DotNW). I'm a bit irritated that I doubted my initial plan - ended up scraping it after about a hour and starting over. My initial plan took half the time and already looks twice as good. Ah, all that ends well and all that.

Project Runway is such an amazing motivator for me. I always feel so itching to sew whenever I watch it, I swear it's like sewing porn. XD

I am feeling frustrated at how utterly difficult everything's turning out to be with the nagajuban dye odyssey; it looks like I do have to remove the two stained lining panels in the furisode itself, because thanks to inconsistent instructions on the dye remover I have, I finally learned I have to pretty much boil the damn fabric. To do that, I have to take off the collar and one of the sleeves. But at least that'll hopefully be easier after I finish with the nagajuban, because I ended up having to take the entire damn thing apart to get it to lay flat enough to roll into bundles for steaming. At least I wanted to learn how to sew kimono anyway, but holy incredibly time-consuming and tedious project Batman. (Handsewing is generally the way to go for traditional kimono like this one, because there's more give in handsewing stitches for sitting and such than there would be in machine stitching.) I really don't want to man-handle the silk any more than I need to, anyway, because the poor stuff is prone to fraying.

On the bright side, the new leotard is put together and just needs the elastic added. I also want to redesign S Saturn's shoulder petals to downsize them slightly so they can be neatly sewn into the sleeve holes. (I was able to get away with sewing them onto the outside before, but now that the stuffing is something thicker like craft foam, the edge is a lot more visible.) I also think I might have figured out a much more comfortable way to put my tiara on, without involving spirit gum.

I have spent all day working on Lucille. If it wasn't 12:22 in the morning and I hadn't stabbed myself under a nail pinning trim I'd still be working and watching Supernatural.

Wore a mask for a cosplay for the first time today, and it gets REALLY hot, lol. Also I learned that lots of dealers at cons will try to rip you off on tax by rounding up, and the receipt NOT showing what the tax rate is. Kind of some shady stuff there...

Now to get ready for my next con in a few weeks

I have a whole year and yet I'm worried already that I won't be able to commission Darth Nihilus that I want to for next year's con.
