I finally got my boot covers and satchel for my Flynn Rider outfit. Probably gonna wear it when I get into NYC to see Zach on Broadway..and to other Christmas things maybe.. and I'm probably gonna use my satchel as a real acessoriy because it's easier then purses..

God only knows when I'll get started on the bodice for Rapunzel- my family spent a ton of money this year compared to other years so... I don't want to spend too much when I finally get around to drafting it and actually making the bodice

It's not a fun pit to try and climb out of...that's for certain.

I almost feel worse about it because my SO is planning on cosplaying things with me...and while I'm excited for the chance to not be on my own for some of these....I worry that the same critical and bullying behavior is just going to continue. Which also says I either need a pair of earplugs or some anger management...but that's beside the point.

I guess I'm having such a hard time getting back to actually enjoying things is because I'm having so many problems with myself.

I'm getting off topic again though..oops. Thank you for the good vibes.

I wish there were more Drossel cosplayers around. The jacket front I made is terrible and I have no idea how to make it better.

As an individual diagnosed with rapid cycling type II Bipolar, I'm no stranger to depression and anger and I know how shitty it is so I'll always try to help out someone in a similar situation. You're very welcome!

If cosplaying with your SO is something you're excited about try running through plans with him or her to get yourself psyched up and ready to dive back into the world of cosplaying.

If I'm completely honest, I've been struggling with an eating disorder for...quite a while now and on top of other issues, I think that has become my biggest obstacle with my cosplays.

On a happier note though..we have been running through a couple of plans, and even though we don't have specific dates in mind yet...plans are plans.

Ahh, I've also been down ED alley. Currently relapsing a bit. I promise I'm not trying to make this about me, but rather to express that there's at least one other person here who's been through and still goes through what you're going through. If you ever need to talk to someone who's been down that road and knows how shitty it is you can PM me whenever. Stay strong, friend.

@TeaForThought, (best user-name ever IMO)
Don't worry! Everyone falls into a pit sooner or later. Just take a step back, take a breath, and try to have fun! Maybe take a week not looking or doing anything cosplay and then comeback to it? Or spend the whole day in costume just because. That helps me.
Live long, and prosper. Rock on, my friend.

I'm broke, yay! Now I'll have to wait before starting another costumes. lolz But in the mean time, does anyone know if Lightning's jacket is leather, or some kind of twill? Twill would make more sense, but Square Enix always seems to render things as either leather, or metal...
I was also thinking micro suede, but I don't know. orz

In other randomness, I was on a sugar high yesterday and decided to practice makeup. (That always tires me out.) Did it, got some pictures, and realized I NEED to practice posing more! I either look derp, or like I want to kill someone. •A•"

I'm broke too! Yay! I get paid tonight or tomorrow though, so that's good.

That image link is broken but based on a google image search it looks like you could make the jacket out of cotton twill. I really can't see that as being leather, and I think micro suede might look a little odd. I'd go with a twill.

Oooooh, I love makeup. My mom worked for a makeup company while I was growing up and she literally taught me how to do makeup before I learned how to tie my shoes. Due to this I'm now quite skilled at regular (I say regular as in not special effects or anything) makeup. I wish I could come to all your houses and help y'all with makeup cos it seems like so many people on here struggle with it due to not wearing it on a regular basis. Makeup is so fun! I can't imagine going without it!

I'm still looking for a school girl outfit for Ayano. I know I'm not gonna need it for a while (my next con isn't for 3-ish years and I'm not even planning on wearing that cosplay to the con, its my backup outfit though) but it still bugs me that I can't find the perfect outfit. I guess I just like to know where to get what I need when I need it...

Wooh! Broke buddy~! X'D You're lucky! I'm getting some money at the end of the month, so I still got a ways to wait.

Sorry about that link! But now that I'm on an actual computer: Wikia page Yeah, I don't know why I thought of micro suede...maybe that was for another costume...*shrugs*

You're right! Makeup is fun to play around with, just not to wear or take off. And my shit-ton of black eyeliner and cover-up filled eyebrows certainly don't help that. lolz I always end up looking like a Japanese crossplayer, WTF?
My avarage time is 45 minutes with eyebrows and fake lashes, which I'm really starting to love! I used to hate putting them on, but now it's a breeze!! Which is strange because I've only bothered with falsies, like, four times... WHY CAN'T EVERYTHING BE EASY WITHOUT PRACTICE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! TAT

You get everyone's home coordinates and I'll get the teleporter! XP

Whoa, I don't get on here much anymore. I really need to do that more.
I received my $250 check from the writing contest that I won, but I don't know how much of it I should devote to wigs or some sort of fabric. I might just save it or treat myself to something special that isn't cosplay related. Not that I have been doing anything cosplay related anyway..

Yay for having a job! *high fives self*

Yeah, definitely a twill for that, I'm thinking.

And you're quite right, the taking-off is the worst part of makeup. I'll admit, I'm REALLY lazy and frequently just sleep in my makeup. That's probably why my skin's so shitty right now. I don't really have many options though, considering I'm all out of makeup wipes and I keep forgetting to have my mom buy more when she goes to wal-mart. Whoops.

Thank you!!! I have such a hard time with fabric, I'm always glad for a second opinion.

Don't sleep in makeup! But don't violently rub it off like I do either... >.>"
I'm going to get makeup wipes tomorrow...from Wal-Mart...because cold cream/baby oil is just too messy. And I'm lazy, but that's beside the point!
