I have half a month to decide whether I'm going to do this cosplay or not. On one hand, a lot of people want me to do it and I've been really wanting to for awhile...But on the other, not doing it will save me a lot of money that I don't really have and there has already been quite a bit of drama over it. I believe full-heartedly that once a cosplay stops being fun for you, then you should put off/drop that cosplay, but...I'd hate to let people down. This has been causing me so much stress that I haven't been able to work on my main cosplay lately.

I just realized that I can't actually work on Luna's skirt yet, as I don't have any pins in my apartment! >.< Now I either have to run out and get some or wait a week and have my folks bring me some when they visit. Oh well, hopefully I can work on the necklace or the mask at some point this weekend.

I think I may have to take over styling my Toph wig. I friend of mine who is fantastic at styling wigs was doing it for me, but she's gotten really busy at work and won't have time for it. The idea of styling it myself both excites and terrifies me since I've never styled one before and that wig is ridiculous.

Sitting outside having a smoke in my Rikku cosplay while I wait for my PiC to get ready and pick me up. Her alarm didn't go off but luckily she woke up on her own before 9:00.

I was gonna go out today and get stuff for Magnus that I wasn't able to get yesterday, so I got up early, got dressed, called my dad to tell him where I was going...he offered to drive me to the store tomorrow so I don't have to walk.

First attempt at making the necklace is a go! Repurposed a Starbucks lid from my roommate and put as thin a layer of clay on it as I could. Once it's dry I'll sand it and see if it needs another. I'm just hoping I got the attachment to the cord in tight enough, or I'll have to try and glue it somehow...

I'm afraid that I won't have the chance to make my December cosplays in time. I'm afraid I might not get the chance to even go, after all this planning. I don't know what my housing situation's going to be like and I don't know if I'll have my PiC down in Kentucky with me by the time it comes around. I don't know what's going on. I just want everything to work out. I just want everything to work out.

Congrats! Where are pics? Just kidding, you'll post them when you post them.

Me, I'm not at Kumoricon, but I'm plotting for Halloween. And just discovered a new fantasy cosplay project, which I am no where near able to pull off. But it's a new idea. Until I get a different one!

It depends on what you want to do. I've used it as a middle layer between fabric, but not to make it stronger. I'd say the fabric is actually the stronger layer, the foam is just there to add body.

I'd treat it as potential interlining, but not as something for strength/stability.

If you let us know what you're doing we can recommend a good material.
