@AnimeLuxray25: Everything looks super great^^

I am like the last person to read FMA. Seriously. But now that I am reading it, I am super in love! For the first time ever, my instinct was to cosplay a girl from the series. I REALLY want to be Izumi~

Also super mega ulta excited because volleyball tryouts are the week after Otakon~ I am literally so happy right now!

My Felicita wig (aka my last wig I get to order this year :'( ) came in today! Not as long as I thought it would be, but then again it would be a bit harder to take care of haha xD But now I gotta cut and style it!

Good news: My friend cut my Virgil wig for me, so Virgil is ready for otakon! 8D

Less than good news: my friend keeps giving me Sailor Moon/codename Sailor V feels and is making me want to cosplay Kaito Ace. Maybe if I can go to the cherry blossom festival with my friends next year...

Essi's sleeves are fully done!
I have the collar cuff ready, though it came out a bit too big so I might remake it...And I have the chest/neck thing all sewn on, now all I need to do is try it on and sew the upper parts so they fit like they're supposed to, then sew on the collar.
And she'll be all done! Ahah, I'm so excited to be almost finished.
And I have tights for her now, that I can also use for Hipster!Russia. I love things that I can reuse for other cosplays, makes life so much easier.

I ended up getting to go to Sally's today! So I got lipliner for Grell's eyebrows, and did a full makeup test for him. (well, almost full. Still have to figure out fake eyelashes)
I don't mean to sound cocky, but I'm surprised at how good of a Grell I actually am. I expected myself to be the WORST, but I'm not too bad. I do still need to work on getting the eyebrows more symmetrical, but I was also in a hurry to test it all out, too. I also can't believe he's almost done. I have to find a pair of shoes for him, get some more paint for the chainsaw, and order the costume..then he's done. My first technical dream cosplay will be done. <3 Then we start working on other versions, of course XD

I'm also still wondering how to break the news to my homophobic parents that he's a psycho chainsaw-wielding perverted transvestite...I'm terrified to learn their reaction to that one XD

Thank you! And I haven't read FMA yet, so you're only the second to last person! \0/

I have two 2 ounce jars of fabric paint and I know I need far more for painting some boots, gauntlets and a belt. I just don't know how much I do need though since I am thinking of getting it in a gallon size container.

Oh. my. Goodness. I could've been at Florida Anime Experience hours ago now. I've missed like four panels I wanted to see. Why are my sister and mom taking so long? ;_;

Woo! Got a Rainbow Dash base wig for a mere $30 in the dealer's room. I want to do a cheap summer-friendly version for next year, and the wig was being a real p.i.t.a to figure out how to get a decent one cheaply OR how to make my own, and in the style I wanted. So, woo! And since this is con money, it's technically no extra out of my pocket.

Me and my Anon have planned to do a genderbent version of Essi and Anon in the future~ ouo
We talked to Zeiva (Mirage) about it and she's totally excited about it and is giving us the creative liberty to design them how we want >3< As long as male Essi is perverted and female Anon is tsundere.
I already have Essi's planned out and I can use it as an excuse to get an Arda wig, Hansel is perfect. And I get to buy a nice vest...
We now have so many future cosplays planned, I have no idea if my cosplay list can handle them all, I'm so excited!

Made PiC's Mor's leg binds and half the dress today (why did she get such cheap fabric though, you can see through it ughhh), and finished the base for Judal's ponytail. Working all day tomorrow, but after that I should be able to either finish the dress or put the hair on the base. PiC's chainmail quest is looking pretty good so far too. Lots of progress today.

Today was a really good day of shopping in Japan.

First stop was the seifuku shop. I went in and bought a uniform. I can now fool people by saying I went to Nobeoka High School. XD The best part was, the people at the store were just highly amused. They already know I'm a college student, and 22 years old. They got me the the blouse, and when I asked about skirts they were like "REALLY?" They didn't get it, but just smiled and laughed along with me as I told them, "Watashi wa Amerikajin desu!" Good enough excuse for them, and they have a story to tell about that strange American college student who came in and bought seifuku. XD

Second stop was the mall. THE MALL HAD A KIMONO STORE. So very happy, and I figured since I'm here, I might as well get stuff to finish off Len! So I got more himo, a makura, and an obi scarf. And let me tell you, the obi scarf was... was a mission. I'm glad my friend's host brother was there to help translate because my limited Japanese couldn't really convey anything properly. And let me tell you, the moment I told the woman I had a furisode, her jaw dropped. She could barely believe me! But it impressed her enough so that she tried to sell me a whole set of jime, scarf, and makura. But I didn't quite have the cash for that, so I settled for one of the cheaper scarves in a lovely spring green with cream accents~ Lookit that, I'm still getting cosplay stuff done! IMMA BE THE MOST GORGEOUS LEN AT THE BALL. *shot*

My God I love Japan, though. The shopping here is way amazing~

@Reily: I'm really glad you found the stuff you needed! I've always wanted to go to Japan. :3


So today's the last day of Florida Anime Experience. I hope I can go, I was only there Saturday for like 3 hours. Totally wasn't enough. I didn't get a lot of pictures. :<
