David Bowie's character from Labyrinth is a good reference point...

Mmmm, Goblin King bwahaha. There's also that prince from Ever After, I totally forget the actor's name. Now THERE'S an awkward sight when you're 10 years old and you see it with your parents :S

Should I waste a money and get a wig for Selphie or cut 3 inches off my hair and flip it? Wigs always look better but it's such a waste of money if I can do it by cutting my hair...but then it'll be at that awkward "medium" length for a few months. Is it worth it?? How hard is it to flip a wig?

And furthermore, Acen isn't until MAY. WHY AM I EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT?

Well, er, yeah, I kind of couldn't help noticing. But it was so noticeable, I was thinking maybe it was prosthetic, and therefore not a realistic reference? XD At any rate, it's good to know everyone agrees - staring at David Bowie's "area" is not weird, just normal.

And darnit, I had this same kind of thing going on with the Sydney costume, except that the official artwork and screenshots make it look like he's probably not got anything down there anyway. -_- Dorian almost certainly does, considering how eager he seems to be to use it on the Major.

(Asexual, therefore honestly do not spend time looking at or thinking about crotches of either gender... except for cosplay purposes. Sigh.)

I am jealous of all those getting to make Magna Carta costumes. I *really* wanna work on Rith SOON, but I'm also worried I'll mess it up big-time and that it won't turn out how I want. I wonder if I'll actually even look like her.

I also really wanna work on one of my dream costumes because I'm actually sorta afraid that someone else will do it first. >.<

I feel I am lacking in skills. I wonder if I can sew on-par with my friends who haven't been making cheapo easy costumes like I have been...

Part of me recently has been wondering if I do it for the attention... but I don't really like having my photo taken, although I do like comments in my gallery. Who doesn't?

I wonder if anyone will recognize Ise Nanao at Comiket in a few weeks... and I wonder what the people I meet will be like since I've only "talked" to them online.

I wonder if I will ever finish those costumes that are in bins at my house. And what am I going to do with them when I leave Japan?

I need to learn how to make a corset. And I need to lose some weight and tone up for future costumes...

And I hate that I can't figure out how to "look good" not smiling. So many people can do it... and I just look dumb. :/

YES. i think that all the time!!! must somehow find a way to resist joining all the gatherings i read about...

current random thought: why i am spending so much time on this prop?!?! it's a stupid book! made out of cheap craft form, construction paper and glue! i should be working on my wigs. yes. i should. but drawing the cover for "icha icha" is just so much more amusing...
