Found a metal colander that fits pretty well on top of a plastic container I have. Looks-wise it should work pretty well for a hand-made buster. Weight wise... I'm not so sure. Maybe I should get a plastic colander of roughly the same diameter.

But hot damn the shape is just about perfect. I'd be kind of nervous about using anything else.

Alright, gonna redo the two collar pieces for my Jolteon cosplay today! Wish me luck! Hopefully they're better than my old ones. C:

Even though my back still hurts from being hunched over the sewing machine (and box of stuffing), I made a lot of progress yesterday! Espeon ears and tail are just about finished! (Plus the Bruins won their hockey game last night, so that helped a bit )

Good luck with the Espeon cosplay!

Normals REALLY have a hard time distinguishing a wig and real hair. Wore my Maeve cosplay to the renfest yesterday (which is basically normal clothes and a multicoloured dredded wig) and every 15 mins I got the compliment of 'OMG I love your hair!'. At one point I'm pretty sure my wig cap was showing...

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.
