Had a mini photoshoot for Slave!Russia and 2P fem!Prussia yesterday and it went very well~ I'm so happy since Russia's clothes were a last minute thing and I lost my tube of blood the night before.
We are probably going to get more pictures of them Sunday, that gives me some extra time to take the cheese grater to a few spots I missed, find some new blood and make his clothes look more dirty.

On a totally different note, I've hit a wall with what to do with my wigs. Right now I keep them all on wig heads on my dresser, but there's definitely not going to be enough space for many more-At least not enough for the ones I need.
I'm partially thinking of buying another tote bag or a lidded plastic tote and leaving them in their bags. But then I'm more apt to lose the whole thing or forget they are in there.
I'm kinda thinking of just buying the plastic tote and keeping my current projects or 'problem wigs' on the dresser-Wigs that would need to stay styled, are dirty and bloody, etc. Is that a good idea?

My fabric just came in today!!!!! But since I paid way more than I should have for it, I'm going to be sure to make complete mockups before I even THINK about cutting into my silk. At nearly $20 a yard, here's no room for mistakes (and I don't have another coupon)!!!
Mami Tomoe (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - 50% complete
Queen Elsa (Frozen) - 50%
Elphaba [Emerald City inspired dress] (Wicked) - 100%
Gryffindor and proud!!!

I got my new Ciel costume in today! It's wonderful, despite being a bit difficult to maneuver in at times ^^; But that's my own fault. Unfortunately, it also seems any skill I had in cosplaying Ciel has gone out the window, so no good pictures of it in action right now. It's also probably going to be too warm to wear to Seishun, so I'm probably going to throw together a last minute casual Grell to wear instead.
On that note, I learned we had some modeling clay lying around and made some skulls for my Grell glasses! And they look much better now Though I started watching Soul Eater as well and now..kind of really want to cosplay Soul seeing as I've wanted to make his scythe arm for the longest time and already have the teeth to wear with him. I made a little prototype, but I'm not actually sure what materials to use for the real thing. The only one I've seen in action used sheet plastic, but I've got no idea how easy it would be to work with that. I've also been considering cardboard, but I'm kind of notorious for not being able to craft with cardboard to save my life (I always end up bending it at one point or another).
Agh, decisions, decisions. At least it's something to keep me busy.

A sudden decision, I think I'm going to Dragon*Con. What do I be?! Should I start work early on The Once-ler? It needs to be pretty compact because I might be flying. (I'd rather drive >_<) Or maybe I can ship it to my friend who can bring it to me. lol I'm so excited.

Hoping to get back into cosplay; I've been MIA for a few months. Assuming I can scrounge up a few bucks I'll be going to Kintoki-Con next month in a previously done cosplay because God knows I don't have the money to make a new one. Will hopefully be going as FF X-2 Thief Rikku but WITH AN ACTUAL BLONDE WIG THIS TIME HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK.

Is it weird that I'm hoping I'll have to do some touch-up work on the sleeves? Hand sewing little things like that is comforting to me. Sigh.
Upcoming events:
Fanime 2015
Friday: Battle Bunny Riven (League of Legends)
Saturday: Satsuki Kiryuin (Kill La Kill)
Sunday: Lady Two (Drakengard 3)
Monday: Kraehe (Swan Lake variation) (Princess Tutu)

My cosplay costume I ordered shipped yesterday finally. Seller was waiting for the swords I needed to get done before shipping, but the company was taking a while. Luckily I have 2 swords I can use in place even if they aren't as nice. Can't wait!

Nah it's not weird. Attention to detail is an admirable trait - especially for cosplay.

I have laid out everything I need to do to finish my Poison Ivy costume, and I'm in an "OMG FREAKOUT" mode for Otakon.

Honestly, it shouldn't be as bad as my brain makes it out to be, but damn...
-Still have no "undies" to go over the tights
-Need to finish leaf application to the base (at about 50% now, but that took 8-12 hours, and was a simpler section)
-Need to actually construct the means to get in/out of the costume (easily enough adjusted by myself to go to the bathroom and stuff as well)
-Waiting for my tights from We Love Colors to ship so that I can attempt the gradient dye process and know whether I need to order the matching flats (I have a backup option, but may end up buying the matching flats and the backup option stuff anyways)
-Need to construct the flower/leaf/vine "bustle" arrangement
-Need to clean up my wig and test to see if it needs any trimming

I have 44 days until my group leaves to get all that done, plus makeup testing for my Joker costume, AND helping my boyfriend and his friend with their costumes that'll go with my Joker.

Holy butts, I can feel the stress, ha ha.

TL;DR I have what feels like a ton to do, and I'm freaking all the outs even though I rationally know that if I try to do a little bit each day it'll be done soon. :P

Ugh...finding people to fill up this hotel room for Otakon is TOUGH! Even with the post here, barely anyone is responding...I wonder if I'm leaving anything out...or maybe people are just being picky...

And I'm REALLY wanting to get some preview pics of this awesome Canada cosplay. Murr! Why does my crappy camera have to be crappy? And I wish I could find a way to make my phone stand up on its own...if I could, I could use that as a temporary solution...that or having a dependable friend would help as well...

Friend asked if I'd do the recent-chapters version of Unohana for an August shoot. Hey, look, a costume that shouldn't be affected by me shrinking! Gonna have to redo a couple of bits, but the important thing is no more evil wig of strangulation. I am all over this idea.

Plus, I finally have an excuse to remake that sword ... XD
