My cosplay group seems determined to get me to be all the manly men. T_T Mink from DRAMAtical Murder, Kodo no Mae/Akuro Ou from Shirahana no Ori, Kazutake from Toki no Kizuna~ Sekigahara Kitan, and etc etc etc. How did I get stuck into this role!?! T_T

Also, why are most Japanese inspired outfit and armor!? T_T I like western clothing darnit all. My group is lucky I love them.

Any day I'm not stabbed is a good day in my book.

Edit: Fuhhhhh Judal's pants are a half inch too short.

0///0 Gosh you are so terribly nice! Same goes to you! Make sure to tell me your cosplay plans~

Gareki's gun is finally done and looks rather nice. The tablet I was working on forming last night isn't looking too hot, so I might just make another one. Still got time~

Thanks chibi,

On an unrelated note, my dad cut my broom handle for me. If all goes well I should be able to start Hirato's staff-thing on Friday ^^

I have seriously wasted so much time and money and sanity trying to make a simple black, sleeveless kimono. Tried to make it with fabric from a pattern; fail. tried to alter a large shirt; fail. Tried to find something online that I CAN alter (let alone an actual kimono), fail.

=| Why are things that are supposed to be easy...not?

Also, trying to make my Izaya wig (third one now lol) spiky and if hanging it upside down and repeatedly spraying it with hairspray doesn't work...I'm giving up.

Finished some random cardboard TF2 props (Namely Spy's knife and Engie's Mining Light), but I'm out of hot glue. I want to finish the Southern Hospitality darn it! D:

My epic cosplay in public moment...I went to a BIG concert in cosplay yesterday! Someone recognized me as Luffy too which was pretty cool.

Although a little underwhelming...I also met and got a picture with Avril Lavigne in cosplay at the concert! XD

Got a lot done this weekend, I'm really happy! Still not sure I'll meet my end-of-June deadline, but the more I have done, the easier it'll be to finish by Otakon.

Figured out a way to make Judal's pants that last .5" longer: Make the waistband .25" thinner. If it works and the elastic doesn't unravel, all will be perfect. If it doesn't work, I have to get more elastic before Wednesday and redo the waistband before Thursday.

Looks awesome, bro. Especially with the glasses.

I was advised to pick up some Motions Oil Sheen to prevent tangling, and tried it out on my frazzled Sheik wig. It worked beautifully. I tried it next on my Judal wig, which reacted by turning oily.
If you go the same path, test it out on a small section before doing the whole thing, and if it ends up looking oily, spray it with a water bottle until it's damp, work it gently through your hands, and let it dry completely.

Someone has thrown away all my scrap paper.
Only.. these weren't scrap paper, but patterns I had made.
This.. THIS is why you should never EVER throw anyone's anything when it comes to any kind of project. You must ask first.

Hmmm! So I just finsihed watching an anime called Anel Beats!. I don't know if many people have heard of it or not, but I think I've found someone else to cosplay as. Granted, I've never made a weapon before...this will be interesting.
