The term PiC is catching on. Bwahaha.

I've decided to learn to spin poi, with the intention of putting veils on 'em once I'm competent. Because obviously I'm not doing enough things.

Gah, the dye isn't being blue like it's supposed to, it's a dark grey-ish purplish color. I supposed I can get away with it if I can get it darker though, since I can't find 'official' colors anyway, only that it's a 'dark colored coat'. Dark greyish-purple is probably the best I can do, but I really wanted navy blue...At least I have until November, but I can't do any more work on it until I get it all dyed. I'll have to think about what I want to do color wise.
Now to go bleach the sink and brood over this.

I totally got it from you. It's clever and cute and it's much easier than saying "my best friend/cosplay buddy" or "Mikayla" because the first is tedious and with the second, anyone new would be like, "...who the fuck is Mikayla?" I dig it.

I have found out that either I had an unfortunate manufacturing incident that involved a bottle being filled with the wrong color and not realizing it until after I had poured both in, or RIT uses an ungodly amount of violet in their navy dye. I have found the blue in my violet sink, I've filtered it out but now I don't believe there is enough dye content to really do anything to my new test piece.
Does anybody know of a different fabric dye brand? One that hopefully has navy blue dye that is actually navy blue...

Try Tulip. You can get it at Walmart, Joann, Michael's, pretty much any craft store. I used their blue to dye a large amount of clothing my junior year of high school for the dancers on our Avatar themed homecoming float and it worked great.

No significant progress lately, as real life has gotten in the way a bit. I did finish hand-sewing the fancy trim on Maximilian's pants though (and promptly did not iron them, haha).

And I'm thinking of going authentic and using red-dyed horse hair for Max's helmet crest and train. The way the train moves in the cut-scenes really looks like it's supposed to be horse hair, which would make sense because that's what Roman helmets traditionally used. It's not terribly expensive, but it does mean I'll be sewing my own wefts. Yay?

Kell: The gimp looks a lot better than bias tape would. Maximilian's too fancy for a boring line.

Argh... I don't even want to hear the WORDS 'bias tape.'

I have to sew it around my entire yellow bikini top for Rikku sometime soon. The con's in a fuckin' week, I gotta get on this shit.

BIAS TAPE BIAS TAPE
I know how you feel. When I redo Drossel's jacket (been putting it off since November), I'm going to be doing pretty much every place where fabric ends.

I feel like if I say 'bias tape' three times in front of a mirror it'll rear its head from my crafts room and strangle me. ;___;

Ack, I have so much outside work/painting to do... and it's 95 with 80% humidity. Why is it that every time I really get ready to do this the weather refuses to cooperate?!
