A familiar situation for me. I say go for the character you want to cosplay. You'll like it more than a costume you do because you think it suits you better, generally speaking. How do you think they don't suit you? If it's in colors or personality, I can see shying away. If it's the body type, though, we all have to acknowledge that about 1% of the world has anime proportions. I'd say go for it.

Dresses don't really look good on me since my shoulders are more broad and I feel it makes me look masculine IMO.

I'm a short skinny thing that cosplays grown men. It's all good.
Anyway, I think Panty's V neck dress would look alright on someone with broad shoulders. Maybe try on something similarly shaped at a department store to see how it fits?

Seymour fustrates me so much! Ugh I literally tossed it in a corner after Kkon because it pissed me off and now it comes to bite me in the ass since my friends want me to wear it for a photoshoot. It's stuck....to my wall. T_T

Also can't find my iron board cover! I can't iron without it darnit! T_T

I live in Illinois, but have to go to Indiana next week for a testing thing. It's in the same city that Ramencon is though, and I was planning on going for one day this year anyways. Going to go scope the place out

This week, I've been helping type up evaluations that elementary school kids wrote about arts outreach programs at the university I attend.

One group of kids went to a theater workshop. They got to see the costume shop during that, and so many of them said things like, "It would've been way cooler if we could've tried on the costumes, or made our own costumes."

I was just sitting there thinking, "Oh, but you can, you can..."

Trying to make Fairy wings for ALO Kirito for Anime Expo...so annoying. I basically have until tomorrow to finish them...

I'm getting excited for AX, but at the same time, I'm nervous about hosting the SAO and Day 1 Vocaloid gatherings. Not like I haven't hosted before despite my timidness, but that SAO gathering is going to be huge.

Also, why is it so impossible to find a cosplay partner?!?!?!?!

T_T Apparently, the bus system doesn't allow for 6ft tall staffs to board. Wonderful, there goes my method of transportation on Sunday. Hopefully, someone will be able to give me a ride and fit my staff into their car. . . but I doubt it. Guess I'm not going to the FFX shoot on sunday. Which works for me since my Seymour wig is a nightmare and a half still.

WORDLESSLY ANGRY.

Of course, three days before the con is when my sewing machine jams and after trying to figure out what is wrong with it for three hours...nothing! One of my friend's mothers who sews said I could ask her for help any time with sewing, and so I thought, yes, I'm saved!

She's out of town.

WHY.

Now I'm going to have to paint all the detail on my corset. For once, I can sew everything and have it look nice because I have the facilities to do so, and then...no.

But hey, at least I got the loops on it, I guess.

If I lived near you, I would totally let you use my sewing machine.
