Ughstcygguvhv, today was odd in that i added two more cosplays to my to-do list (Gundam from Dangan Ronpa 2 and Simon Blackquill from Duel Destinies) but then get thrown a ton of bs by my cosplay group. I'm about ready to throw in the towel with them. I'm just fine doing my own thing...it kinda appeals to me too, just doing my own thing...

Thank you!

And I hope so because last year at the convention that I'm wearing this to, it started snowing while I was Duke Devlin from Yu-Gi-Oh. That was unpleasant XP

Got these pictures up of the two items I completed for Shinx yesterday. Damn those ears, they were so pesky. @_@

Somehow convinced myself to do a SnK cosplay for Anime Boston '14. Ordered boots from Amazon and the jacket from eBay in the largest size possible because of the chest measurement. -_-; At least if it's too big I can take it in rather than have a useless piece of material if it's too small. I'll probably order this one piece by piece after I get my paycheck (bimonthly). I want to start my Medusa (Soul Eater) cosplay soon, but I want to lose a bit of weight first since I have to mod the pattern. I think the materials sitting in my closet are giving me the evil eye. -_-

Also busy looking for helmets for my brother's Brolaf (League of Legends) cosplay - found the beer helmet that I want to take apart for the can holders, but finding an appropriate Viking helmet to attach the can holders on the horns is proving to be a major pain.

Last night I found out someone put water in my gold acrylic paint so it was a watery mess no matter how hard I shook it. As a back up I had rub on gold leaf (y'know that stuff that you rub on with your fingers to make things like buttons gold), so I thinned it out with nail polish remover and went to town. First, that stuff is super thick even with thinner. Second, it would not come off my brush so the brush was ruined. Third, I got some on my fingers and let's just say my skin doesn't like it on there. It burned for quite a bit. Lastly, I thought it dried and when I went to seal the acrylic part of the gold part started running off. Crap! So now I have to repaint and hope it won't ruin the paint once more. Yeah, I don't think I'm using that stuff ever ever again. The skin reaction alone sealed the deal.

The wig cap and stockings I had been waiting on forever came in yesterday! And yesterday was my birthday! It's like UPS and the world of cosplay saying "I love you".

Managed to finish putting together the leg pieces of Maximilian's armor last night and threw down a few coats of Mod Podge over it before popping into work today for a bit. Just about finished at work, and then I can swing by the hardware store, snag a can of white spray paint, and get back to my armor.

The leg armor is turning out so much better than the chest armor (which I'm repainting...don't ask). Clearly I'm learning from my early mistakes. Slowly.

Successfully convinced my friend to be my photographer next weekend for Ayaka. Crossing my fingers it is warm enough to take pictures.

Oh and Jo-Anns is having a 5 for $5 sale on Simplicity patterns for the week. ^_^ Mawhhh! I have so many patterns now(mostly for my friend's cosplays but still! XD)

What are the odds that if I ordered a wig from China it would get here by November 24th? I'm assuming slim to none... That's what I get for procrastinating. Is it worth the gamble to order it and hope it arrives in time?

I just remembered that I forgot to get that spirit gum remover that I was going to buy last month... OTL It's probably gonna be hard to find a store that carries it still now that Halloween is long over.

I successfully made my Sheeta dress only to find out it's a little too small due to pattern sizing fail (never really used weaves for an outfit). Time to lose some much need to be gone weight...

Rubbing alcohol works very well as a substitute.
