I'm thinking that I need to somehow cut out as much as is humanly possible from my upcoming list for JTAF this weekend, considering I just spent hours in bed with what I thought was a migraine and turned out to be 95% severe stress headache. Maybe making two costumes and styling a difficult wig during finals week wasn't a smart idea after all.

"There's only one dance that will beat them! I MUST!

Parents, please don't kill me for changing my costume, I'll spend Christmas money if I have to, but I must do this.

I now need to work my butt off"

Making costumes while living in middle of nowhere Japan is a PAIN!

The machine has two speeds: agonizingly slow and sometimes fast enough, sometimes way too fast crap where do you think you're going fabric AAAH! Plus I need 3 hands to operate it: one to switch between the speeds, one to handle the fabric, and one to man the on/off switch since it doesn't have a foot pedal.

Not to mention that it's impossible to find what I need around here, and Japanese fabric is narrower and more expensive than in the States. Plus I ordered a pattern for my current project, Tekken 5 Anna Williams, and it's just not right so I'm trying to adjust it, but I'm wondering if I should try and make the entire costume before Ohayocon when I'm home, but I don't want to leave it all til the last minute since I'll also be spending a lot of time with friends since I will, after all, be home. AAAHHH!

I'm starting to think I should go back to plan A, "Take a break from costumes while in Japan" -_-;

"I have to make 2 costumes and learn a dance in 6 weeks?!?!?! Sure, for a normal person this would be fine, but for me, miss Plan-ahead-like-crazy this is PANIC TIME!!!!"

And

"Hurry up dad and take me on my cosplay-run in town! I need fabric!"

YoshidaEri dont worry about the dance!! (2 costumes in 6 weeks scares me too so dont feel to bad about normal people not panicking I would!) But the dance will be easy to learn...just make sure to practice it a few times in a row each time you practice, and most importantly HAVE FUN!!! It helps you remember the steps easier if you can have a laugh while you do it, sticks better!

Sorry to intrude, just done alot of dance learning in short spaces of time! Curse your Performing Arts course! CURSE YOU!!

*ahem*

Good luck with the dance! Im sure it will look great!

I ahd a dream about cosplaying Wonder Girl from Teen Titans (the comic) a night ago. I so don't think thats going to happen, I'm not blond, Wonder Girl is not my type and Raven is cooler!
I'm trying to find Raven pictures form the 1st Kole episode, in which she wore a winter outfit I want to cosplay that. I so don't want my legs frost bitten....again. I wonder how Wonder Woman cosplayers and Linda Carter filmed or wore that during the cold. Its crazy!CRAZY!

Thank you PrinceMark

On my mind:

"I must go back to the store and get like 5 of those Hello Kitty plaid skirts so I can cover up the Hello Kitty party and make my skirt for this costume! Hurry up Ebay money!"

I am so 'effing pissed off at that damn fabric now!

well it's really my fault >_>

But I dyed it for 5 hours then when I ran it through water the whole bloody thing was in a tye dye form.
I said screw it and through it in the wash forgetting to turn it on low.

Then went to it this morning and my whole sheet of fabric is in shreads.
there goes 12 dollars.
Now I have to use my white fabric for gaara's sash.

If the costs of my new costumes are more than a PS3, I think suciude is the only cure for me.
