Ripping off about 100+ individual foam pieces off this shield...so I can make 100+ new pieces to redo it all over again because it just didn't look as good as I thought I could have made it. I'm oddly not too upset over basically tossing a few dozen hours worth or work out the window.

I really want to be Fem!11th for Halloween this year, but I have no idea if I'll be able to gather all the things in time. Here's hoping. >_<;;;

Realized that as my birthday is in a few weeks I can ask for my Mikasa cosplay for my birthday instead of dropping $150 of my own money on it. Yesss.

So I finished the second Mortal Instruments book tonight and realized I can actually totally get pictures as Magnus as soon as Monday, since in the last half of book 2, he's just wearing a suit and a long coat and actually forgoes the frak-ton of hair product.

I actually have the stuff in my closet to do this version and I know I'll never be able to again once I do all the hairspray and glitter spikes on my wig.

I talked to my mom and she even agreed to drive me down to the lake by the Walmart and take pictures for me, since unfortunately it's the only body of water I have (he's technically at a river when he wears this outfit but I don't have that, I have a lake down the street from a Walmart.)

Plus it gives me an opportunity to stop at Walmart and buy hair wax. EXCITEMENT!

:'D It's not the hair wax itself that's exciting; I can finally start styling this wig once I get it and that's what I'm excited about.

(also about getting pictures so soon. Granted it's not one of his flashier outfits but I'm cosplying a character I love to death right now and that's also exciting)

I think I'm starting to realize the niche of cosplay creating I'm gonna enjoy doing more than the rest, and that is prop related work. I like building a thing out of cardboard, foam, and poster board, and having something cool to carry around.

What I think I'm gonna hate and try to avoid? Anything involving sewing and fabric work lol Making something out of fabric just feels tedious to me and with large hands, they just don't work as well there.

With props, I also want to start looking into armor-related items too since it feels like a similar process.

I am so glad I found some spray paint yesterday. I still need one color (Cream/Beige).
Haha, yeah, Dr. Rockso is in NO WAY bashful XD Maybe if you like, make a compilation of clips of just him being crazy, and watch it before you wear the costume it'll help you get into character more so you feel more comfortable going out there in costume and acting crazy XD

Testing out my new alcohol-activated body paint on my hands. Hands are always tricky when you're playing a character with a skin tone not your own amirite? So far it's working! It's not coming off unless I rub hard and actually try to get it off. Woohoo!

I've been very aware to the fact my cosplay type is that of an older male characters.... I told my friend I'd cosplay Yuki from Gravitation to Shuchi match her if she'll cosplay Ritsuka from Loveless to match my Soubi.

Also, my friend suggested cosplaying Makoto from Free! and Lin from Ghost Hunt for a haunted house halloween shoot. NOOOO T_T I'm a total chicken when it comes to that stuff. Fitting for Makoto but not Lin, not sure I can hold a straight face long enough if I'm freaking out.

Just watched episode 22 of Attack on Titan and the ending has made me hate my life a wee bit.

So I decided awhile ago I was going to cosplay Mami Tomeo but was going to wait a bit before starting it. Now, several people I know announced plans to cosplay her. I try not to let the fact something is done a lot deter me from cosplaying something, but here it's a little hard. I considered doing her school uniform instead of her magical girl outfit, but it doesn't have the same draw to it. I wish she had more outfits.
