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)_/¯

Which means tomorrow afternoon is gonna be snip city!
I'm happy to help.I'm excited to see what you came up with!

I'm assuming you bought the Wright's gold lame bias tape.. haha. I fell victim to that before. Maybe you could look into investing in a bias tape maker. That way any fabric your heart desires can be bias tape! Perhaps even a better gold fabric than the very lame lame.

I can't get my sewing machine to do the satin stitch, which I need to hide the ugly looking base stitch on this bolero...it's bugging the heck out of me...

Ah, ok. I apologize for throwing that on you, but I just wanted to look out for others. ;_; I do wish you luck with it. I used to think they were ok before finding out they stole a cosplayer's photo. >_> Haven't bought from them but I did enter some of their giveaways before... o_O

So I got tickets to Ame-con and it's going to be my first 3 day convention and I'm HYPE!

It does mean I need 3 cosplays and they also have a cosplay ball that requires you to be in formal wear and I just

I just have no idea who to cosplay for it, or well who to make real fancy like for it. I'm absolutely HERE for this though. Fancy is what I love and boi am I gonna bring it. If only homestuck was still a thing I wanted to be associated with cause atleast they had an ABUNDANCE of fancy designs.

Suggestions?
