Just as I was getting the hang of carving Echidna's sword out of expanding foam last night, I got distracted and lacerated the top of my left index finger and I had to sit in the ER all night and get stitches. Otherwise the carving process is going smoothly now and I'm half done with it. Sometimes you've just gotta keep going.

Alright, I've been going back and forth since Wednesday about whether or not I want to cosplay Magnus Bane from the Mortal Instruments books. I've had times where I was really excited to, and times where it's keeping me up at night thinking what a stupid idea that is, because I'm technically too short and too pale and he's supposed to be part Asian. A couple of my friends gave me a pep talk though and reminded me that cosplay is about fun and love of a character, and my mom (who's reading the book now) even agreed to help me with my eyeliner, so I think I'm gonna go for it and cosplay him.

Time to buy a frak-ton of glitter.

Okay so....after fixing whatever was wrong with my computer I can access cosplay.com again.

And I actually did something myself for a cosplay for once.

And all I can think whenever I hear glitter is "NOOOOOO stage herpes!". Because the stuff never. Goes. Away. Bane of the techie's existence. >_>

I want to bead something. More accurately: I want to do something bead-embroidered for cosplay but I have no idea what, because it doesn't fit the only embroidery project I'm working on currently and I can't start Sisi yet and alkasdnflkndf. Someone either smack my wrist hard and tell me not to be stupid or give me an idea plz.

It's really fraking good. The character I decided to cosplay is literally a sassy gay warlock who is actually pretty badass though he covers himself in glitter, dresses outlandishly and loses his miniature cat on occasion.

Doooo iiiiit

He's not in the first book as much as I'd like, but the parts that he is he's fabulous personified.
And a movie just came out of the first book. I've yet to see it but I've seen pictures from it and Magnus doesn't have nearly enough glitter and it bothers me -3- I'll still go see it though, most likely in costume and shedding glitter.

Awesome! The first book is called City of Bones. Be sure to let me know what you think when you start it! ^^

So I just realized I almost have everything for a cosplay of a certain character that I have been wanting to do. I just need a wig and a red tie(and alter a skirt a bit). I've been looking at what other people have done and I can go with a tan skirt instead of a yellow one. I need to keep quiet about the cosplay though since I have a bunch of friends that I want to surprise with this and a couple of them do go on coscom. Not often but I don't want them accidentally stumble on this post. This is going to be great!

That I need to get over myself and bring him to the con because they 'really want me to'.
That doesn't help guys. I have a large chance of going blind early in life and my vision already isn't very great as it is. I am literally incapable of doing this cosplay if I can't get the funds for new contacts. There is a difference between slightly meshy vision and being so visually impaired that it poses a danger to both you and everyone around you.
Honestly, with all the trouble I'm having with figuring sight into this cosplay and the snooty reactions I got from the people who just want me to cosplay him, I'm most likely going to drop him. Cosplay is supposed to be about fun, not about how much someone else wants me to do something. Once I become uncomfortable, it's time to drop it...
What you could do is make a blindfold that's easily removable. Like, a band with a snap in the back or something. Walk around without it, then snap it on for pictures and stuff. That's what my PiC did for the cosplay where she needed an eyepatch, and it worked out great.
