Didn't get any work on Essi done yet today, instead I walked around town as Hipster!Russia with my Fempunk!Prussia to test them out.
All I can say is...I'm doing to die of heat exhaustion at A-Kon with that scarf of his.

Oh and I'm still excited

Haha, I wish. There's just cosplay drama and me being a horrible cosplayer. ^^ I've learned to live with it. I've got a few good friends who help me out with photoshoots and a coupld photographers who don't mind shooting with me.

Anyways, yay~ My Kent and Garry wigs came in. ^^ pics I'm starting to think that my Munakata wig has been eaten though because its been on island for two days and not been delivered.

So I'm sitting here, staring at the 2nd volume of the Codename Sailor V manga in irritation, wondering just how curly a wig I would need to cosplay Ace -3-

It's 4:40 am
all my friends are at out of state cons and one of them was the one I was supposed to go to.
reason I couldn't go is because my doctor said no. :C I'm pretty much due at any time right now so no travel for me.
so what am I going to do? work on doctoring up my skyward sword zelda and enter in the local sci-fi convention's cosplay contest. and win. and be happy that I didn't go to cali or idaho.

/end thought

I never thought It'd be in a position where I had to take a day off from cosplaying at a con till I partied so hard the previous night that I couldn't be standing for much longer let alone wear my wings.

Guuuuuuuuuyyyyysssssssssssss! I moved to cosplay as Ryoko Hakubi from Tenchi Muyo from a maybe to a definite yes next year! My love for her is too great!

Now I Just gotta figure out which outfit to do first! xD

http://www.absoluteanime.com/tenchi_muyo/ryoko.jpg

or

http://www.toonguru.com/backgrounds/full/ryoko.jpg

Though I'm leaning more for her first one because it'll be more recognizable and probably something I can easily make

I really want to work on her wig though so I can also do some badass casual cosplays for her x3

The first image doesn't work for me, but if it's what I think it is, it's definitely more recognizable.

Just got more fabric swatches for Fleur. I ordered blue-grey silk charmeuse, they sent me black >.> I would complain to the company, but it was free, so I just ordered the sample again. Hopefully, they'll get it right this time.

London Expo tomorrow, I'll be wearing my Princess Bubblegum and also my Asuka for the first time (like, I haven't tried the whole thing on because it's not finished, I've got some to finish today and my friend will cut the wig for me in the hotel) and I've got sooo many worries. The facepaint I'm using is hard to reapply evenly for Bubblegum, what if it starts rubbing off? What if Asuka doesn't look good on me?

Plus I've got all the usual image/body image woes, I'm terrified about wearing my Asuka since the skirt is sorta short for my standards and it shows quite a bit of leg and my legs are the part of my body I'm most insecure about excluding the face... ;___;

Advice, anybody? Anybody else going?


Also, bringing this back since I didn't seem to get any answers...

I've wanted to cosplay Rin from Kodomo No Jikan (It's uh... a lolicon, sorta infamous) for a long time and always put the idea off because I thought it would be a bad idea to cosplay from a series like that. But I really do love Rin and I'd love to cosplay as her, I'm going to invest in a sukumizu too and it reminded me of how I'd love to do Rin's sukumizu outfit. I'd probably wear that one only for photoshoots and do one of her more covered outfits for a con or something though.

I was thinking maybe I should wait until I was 18 to cosplay from the show due to it's nature, but I'm 17 so really that's not too far away.

What do you guys think? Is it a bad idea?

In my opinion, you're old enough to cosplay it if you want to. As far as cosplaying from an infamous show...well, I personally would not cosplay from anything that can be labeled as porn, simply because I do not want to risk meeting really bad creepers. Still, a lot of shows have that in-between line called ecchi, and even some of the best series include it- and if I watched one and loved one of the characters from that, I'd probably wait until I'm a bit older and then go and do it.

I say that you go for it, but also be aware there may be creepy fans and have a plan to get away from them. It'd probably be best to have buddy with you if you do, just for safety.

Ugh - in recovery from surgery this week, which is hitting me a lot harder than I expected. So I've been slowly coloring my husband's wig for a gender-bend Celestia costume.

And, gleefully, my silk swatches /finally/ came in. They are amazing looking - 15 little swatches of various shades of white, silver, and pale blues. So glad I ordered the swatches, they didn't look at all like they did on the website, the colors are so much stronger and varied.
