I'm thinking of trying to find somewhere to store and then make a duct tape dressform. I want to be able to drape things and alter patterns and make sure things fit before I go and make them. Once I can figure out storage issues, I know my friend will help with creation.

Dress forms are definitely ideal. Now that I have mine I have no idea HOW i pulled off my cosplays before.

EDIT:

By the way I got mine relatively cheap and at my exact measurements. $90.02 including shipping and it's really nice. Just letting you know in case making a duct tape one is too difficult at the time.

My cosplay has been sitting in the closet for like a week, so close to being finished that I can taste it. But here I sit, doing everything but work on it.
I just really hate sewing on those buttons. All the buttons.
I should be able to start ordering my things for Org. Riku soon though, hopefully next payday. Which would be two weeks before the 'needs to be ordered by' date.
I need to hit a fabric store soon too, need to get the fabric to make Riku's blindfold and Russia's scarves. And learn to get over my thing with my sewing machine, I don't have the patience to hand sew a scarf as long as his.

It feels so weird to wear a short blond wig when I have... Wait for it... Short blond hair. But then again, I don't have to put gel and hairspray into my hair. Still, it's a weird feeling.

He is amazing. Now I really have to consider cosplaying him, but I'm a tiny bit bashful, so I have to lose some inhibitions.

I am so glad I found some spray paint yesterday. I still need one color (Cream/Beige).

This is going to be me next year. I'm getting a short length black wig and my hair is shoulder length and black and will probably be the exact same style if I straightened it. I'm just going with a wig since I hate having bangs plus a wig is wayyyyy more manageable.

EDIT: So I just bought the Fate/Extra CCC materials artbook. No regrets. Nope. More references for cosplays! As well as being a pretty artbook. XD

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.

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.
