Kind of annoyed that my commissioner finished my costume and everything looks great... but hasn't replied to have it shipped. My deadline was the 10th, so while it was finished on time, it still hasn't been shipped out =/

Having unlimited 3D printer access is DANGEROUS because now I'm just spending my evenings making models LOL. I just finished Chika's hair pin (paint is drying now!) and I'm hoping to have my raw print of the Voltron bayard hot off the printer tomorrow morning-- just in time for Season 4!

@Rinku -- H&M has pretty cheap ring/small jewelry packs for a few dollars, if you're trying to be cheap about the jewelry! My friend got her Lup stuff there.

*is happy that I finished a commission*
Friend: Soooooo....
And now I'm back to 3 commissions to do for Katsu. lol. Thankfully 2 out of the 3 don't require my level of detail but it's still like, "Alright then..."

Considering I am thinking about buying a legit lehenga/choli combination for Parvati...the funds will be nice(the really nice ones are $100+). It's weird but I'm so used to making my huge cosplays that dropping $100+ at once makes me go, "OMG. No," even though I've spent that much and more on supplies for big cosplays. Probably because it is all at one time instead of in increments.

Somehow I got a bunch of work done?? I primed all of Ana's leg armor with plastidip, and I started the dreadful task of Ana's chest piece- which isn't as terrible as I'd imagined it. I don't think I have a lot of confidence in myself when it comes to creativity and making things in cosplay- because it's turning out better than I thought it would! So I'll be more confident from now on with armor

Aww, sometimes I have lack of confidence myself when making something, especially if it requires a lot of time or if I'm not that experienced with making it. But I do like new challenges, nonetheless. ^^

Oh no. I started playing Horizon Zero Dawn and while watching the let's plays, I thought it would be fun to do young Aloy(since everyone does adult version). Seeing all of the clothing details though....holy crap, it's pretty much all leather. :,)

Still sick. But thankfully, it hasn't gotten nearly as bad as last time. But colds are never gone in under a week for me, so time remains yet to see what becomes of the cough...
Also, SO MUCH HANDSEWING. I'm finishing up the beaded reticule, making the hat (so, handstitching virtually of it because wire and buckram) and finishing my skirt seams before I get to the bustling, hem and trimming.

I'm playing it right now, such a beautiful game! Aloy is definitely on my list of cosplays, hell, she's been on the list since before the game even came out. I saw a preview trailer at E3 and thought "Chick protagonist? Archer? Robot dinosaurs? I'm in!"

If I get myself moving, I can finally finish these keyblades. A two day project has taken me over a month...

Good news/bad news for this weekend. Bad news, we were supposed to go visit my brother but something blew up at my dad's work so we couldn't go. But good news, that meant I had a weekend to work on cosplay! Dress pieces are all cut out, and I started/finished sanding the mask for Raven Queen. It isn't perfectly smooth, but I got tired of sanding (lol) and I'll call any leftover low spots battle damage. xD

I haven't started sewing the dress together yet because just cutting it out was a nightmare, but I might make an attempt at that tonight. That or I'll work on designing my next cosplay. (Remember when I said my next cosplay shouldn't be one I design? Hah. But this'll be a much simpler outfit either way.)

It really is! I struggle with the pull bow back with R2 and aim with R3 though. lol.
I actually found a turnaround for young Aloy. *stares at the furry/grassy things on the legs* What is that.... =_= I also found a tutorial for making fabric look like leather which would be fun to try.

So I'm a bit nervous that I bought the overalls I need for Rin a little too close to Halloween; so as my back up I can use my pastel blue bomber jacket, my pink shorts with knee high socks with my all white shoes to wear to the Anime North Festival thingy as casual cosplay based off her standard outfit. I'm on the look out for brown dye for the belt, and thigh high socks if I can find them because I prefer thigh high since I love her thigh high boots <3.
Whichever one is fine with me. I guess I can still wear the overalls for a casual shoot even if it comes after Halloween however I'm still hoping they come in time.

I started working on a Baymax plush that I'll use for my BH6 cosplays(one that's bigger than my official plush ^^ ) and I'm hoping everything goes well with that. XD

And I'm almost done with Honey Lemon's dress! Just a few things left to do!

Managed to suck up enough motivation to nearly finish the keyblades. Just needs the keychains and a foam "bridge" between the handles.

Yikes, I didn't know that. The order I bought was just the character picture with no costume picture, so it was pretty hit or miss on what I'd end up with.

On the other hand... 4 hours of frustration this evening, and now I have pockets!

Here's the character: https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net...20131006182911
Here's what EZ cosplay sent me (they sent me ONE), followed by what I ended up with today: https://imgur.com/a/0jv4d

I'm both proud and frustrated about it. Proud because it's more character accurate than what they sent me, and because I'm terrible at sewing yet somehow managed to get it done. Frustrated because... c'mon, look at it. The bias tape I bought yesterday is TRASH, it frays if you look at it the wrong way. Couple that with poor sewing skills and a machine that keeps getting stuck, and there are too many issues.
Oh well, it looks decent from far enough away and it's just pockets anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
