So my little grabby hands managed to get ahold of Rurouni Kenshin: Restoration and I nearly creid tears of joy, because Watsuki bringing back all these characters again makes me way too happy. I think I now need to add a pimping scarf to my Kenshin cosplay. >.>

Change of plans...cosplaying Mozart instead of Salieri. I think it's hard to swallow that the entire costume is black but will still cost me a lot of $$$. Like, no.

Found the perfect wig on Arda, so that's nothing to stress over. I'm good at makeup, so I'm really not stressed about making myself look like him.

His waistcoat has a funky pattern, but to be honest, I'm not above "cheating" a bit when no one knows the characters, so I'll just choose a pattern that's similar, and voila, no one will know. My friend recently gave me a pirate shirt that just needs to be dyed black, and I already have a scarf I can use. As for the pants, I'll probably just buy some satin and make "covers" of sorts for pants I already have. Boots will also be no problem, since I learned how to make boot covers.

BUT GUYS, HIS COAT.



I already know what I'm making it out of and how to make it, but it's really intimidating nonetheless. Like...glittery snowflakes. But a lot of them. I found good patches to buy, and I know how to "dress them up", but the only thing I'm concerned about is that...there's at least twenty "snowflakes" on it. And that's gonna cost me. (Maybe if I buy in bulk like I'm going to have to, the people on eBay will cut me a deal on those "best offer" ones TT^TT)

I'm so torn on what to do for my MOMO cosplay. I really want the costume to look amazing, and this will be my first fully handmade costume, and I know I don't have the chops to make it the way I want it to look yet. I'm also incredibly impatient, so I don't want to put it off until I do have the chops. But do I go ahead and commission it, then? I'm sure I'll wear it enough to justify it, but... I've never commissioned anything before. I wonder if the "experience" of wearing it will be the same? [/rambly musing questions]

As far as my sewing skills go though, I went through my patterns and leftover fabrics and I think I have a project or two I can tackle to get started. Man, I can't wait to take my Costumes class next semester!

Classe is having six consecutive weekly promo/sales starting this Wednesday at 3 PM JST. I went over the inventory, trying to find the most effective way to take advantage of the promos and sales...

I can't come up with 3 wigs from the Pro line that I want. I still look at the colours and think "Gorgeous!" but somehow I don't feel a lot of strong impulses. One of the promos is "Buy 2 wigs, get the 3rd (and cheapest) wig free" so I've been trying to find three similar price wigs.

I guess it's because I've already bought up most of the ones I was itching to have? Lol. At any rate, I'll probably figure it out because I've been a pretty good girl so far this month (ahaha, it's only the 2nd week of November).

Come to think of it, I could use one of the other promos to get three pleated skirts for the price of two. Or coloured pumps. Or stylized geta heels. Hm.

One thing is for sure: I won't waste the promo on the accessory mini-items... Those are cheap enough to attach onto other non-sale orders. Now, if it's the 20% off week? I might be tempted. But I hope not, lol.

I am itching to do all the cosplay work, but I have no money to buy fabric and nothing around the house to work on.
I've already styled a wig I have no cosplay for yet and washed an old wig I found in my storage...
Maybe when I get a day off, I'll cut my VY2 wig and practice some cosplay makeup...I just really want to get working on more productive things.

Having to finish your cosplay when the cons THIS weekend which isn't hard but you have to finish your friends who is taking all the credit for making theirs when they haven't done anything to help. XD

I am so excited though that nothing can ruin this con for me!
Because I am the great BlackStar. /(*A*)/

I just read that Milanoo scams people which makes me sad because I was going to buy 2 costumes from there. I knew there were no such things as cheap costumes... OTL

I'm now looking for a new place to buy a Ranma costume and a school girl outfit for Ayano. OTL why did the one cosplay site I found that had everything I needed had to be a rip-off?

I don't know what your current search has been like, but have you checked out the Merchant Reviews thread here? There seem to be a few sites with reasonable prices and decent reviews. So you can just kind of look through those and see if they have anything you're looking for. I know the Commissioner Review thread has been a big help to me while looking for a someone to commission a piece from.
