My local con finally has decided to make a Masquerade event instead of two separate events. Which seems logical to me but there is the problem for my friends since they planned to do skits and the cosplay contest in two different cosplays. The Cosplay contest one being significantly more complicated to get in and out of. They say they think they can wear it under neath the suit but I don't think its going to work out for them all that well... In particular my friend in the Quad suit.... *sigh*

^^ They've also made the decision that they want to start becoming more like Mainland conventions, which is awesome!~ Kawaii Kon seemed to be stuck for a couple years, hopefully this brings it back.

I finally found my missing socks yesterday. They were in a box of a bunch of cosplay clothing I had thrown together while trying to get things cleaned up at one point. I found the socks, base bag for the TARDIS bag, stuff for Haruko and a couple other shirts. Finding that box has reignited my motivation to get things done! Yay!

So I decided against trying Heavy and instead opted to give Soldier a try. Looks straight forward, except for his rocket launcher, but even then it should be a cinch.

That said, I need to make a shopping list of supplies (Ran out of hot glue and paint. D: )

Going to the craft store later to buy stuff to make Hirato's staff, and then maybe to Target to get belts for him.

I think I'm going to have to go to the store myself as well. I need to get navy blue slacks and a red sports watch and I have not been able to find one at yard sales. Also need some leather and need to work on my Kill-Ballad sticker.

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?

I think I picked the hottest time of day on the hottest day this summer to walk the approximate mile to my local craft store, but dang it I got the stuff to make Hirato's staff jewel!

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)!!!

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.
