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?!

Hmmm, a part of me really wants to try to do a Songbird (Bioshock: Infinite) cosplay despite my logical mind going "NO NO NO NO NO HOW WOULD YOU MAKE IT HOW WOULD YOU EVEN SURVIVE IN IT. STOP BEING CRAZY." ... I think that'll be my 2015 cosplay. Yes I do.

Yay! That's what I thought. I'm finding that the more gold crap I add, the better this costume looks. The fanciness.

Plus the shade of gold I've been using all over this costume doesn't even remotely match any bias tape I could find locally, so I would either have to try to match online (ew) or make my own (double ew).

Bias tape is the devil. My Isaak Von Kampfer coat was absolute nightmare! Not only did it take forever to sew, I got stuck with pins in places pins should never be because I forgot I had the goddamn bias tape pinned (Places like my stomach and my kneepit ><)

Uughh bias tape. I hate working with bias tape, Essi's dress killed me and my newest project is going to require almost four feet of the devilish stuff.

I found my old C.C. costume :0 (first costume I ever wore! It's a bought one, but I plan to fix it up some)
Unfortunately my sister packed it and my wig in a box and the wig is horrendously tangled but... if I can fix it I will wear it again
How exciting. It'll be so much better since I know how to do wigs and makeup now

*glares at the bias tape on Heroine's jacket* My fingers hurt so bad after making that. >_> And yet I keep ending up using it for various cosplays...

Also...my Gilgamesh wig is not here. And now I shall panic. I'll wait until Monday before I send out an email in the hopes it will end up near in the next two days but I doubt it. Gah. T_T Why does this need to happen now!?

Ughhhhh I don't want to take a break from getting a new cosplay right now..
But I can't decide on a costume to do. There are plenty that I'm like "Yeah, that'd be cool!" But none that are jumping out at me as "OMG I HAVE TO DO THAT NOW", as I would prefer they be since I won't be able to immediately get the costume after I purchase a wig here, and I'll probably get sick of it before then.
The closest to that is Alois' kimono, and I'm not testing that one until I know how I would actually keep that on..not to mention having to psyche myself for creepers and figure out shoes. (I might try to make a pair of those invisible shoes later)
Whatever..time to speed-run through several different animes. I'll see you all after I finish up on Crunchyroll ;n;

I worked on resizing the skirt of my mockup today, but unfortunately, I didn't get it totally done >.< But I think i can finish it pretty quickly tomorrow. I also ordered wool roving for Fleur's hat, which should be here on wednesday. Amazon Prime has totally spoiled me though; waiting until wednesday seems like forever, and the $6.84 shipping seemed atrocious. I'm way too used to free two-day shipping....

It's pretty wild to know that the person who inspired me to get into wings has in turn been inspired by my design.

Anyhow, anime expo was crazy fun. So... I still haven't found any of the other records of my Kazuya...
