I will be starting my sakura costume thsi next weekend, and by starting i mean going and gathering my supplies at the fabric store in olympia.....I have my two costumes fromlast year... just slowly building on m,y collection.

Where are you at in your costume? What are you having difficulties with?

Stalled in the early stages right now. My move is interfering with my sewing, but at least once I'm moved into my new place, all my supplies will be nicely organized and I'll have an actual work space. One of the reasons I'm seriously considering a particular apartment is because the kitchen/breakfast counter is so large, I could actually lay out and cut fabric on it.

I've aquired the underkimono pattern and nearly all of the fabric for my Princess Tomoyo costume...still need the lavender for one of the layers and to make a pattern for the outer kimono.

My Shampoo costume is about 70% done, so I'm thinking I might add that to my list of cosplays for Sakura Con. The wig and tunic are almost completed, and the leggings are done, but I still need to make the breastplate and bonburi weapons.

Biggest problem? Making the pattern for my Princess Tomoyo outer kimono. I'm starting to figure it out, but I'm still having issues figuring out the pattern shapes.

Why yes, it is my natural hair color, darling!
Working on: Sakura/Syaoran/Tomoyo fall uniforms, Ashitaka

AE/Kumori Con
Ashitaka (Princess Mononoke); Sakura Kinomoto (Cardcaptor Sakura)

Autumn '08/Aki Con
Ryoga Hibiki (Ranma 1/2); Shura!Sakura, Jade!Syaoran (Tsubasa: RC); Kokon (Kon Kon Kokon)

Even though I promised myself that I would have 50% of all my costumes done for Scon by the end of winter break that never ended up happening.>< So far I only have about 30% of each one done... Its going to be a very costume driven months to the con.XD

I am not really having too much difficulties just motivation .XD Hohoho *Procrastination Queen*

I haven't started mine yet. Though if I decide with Barret, I'm wondering should I grow a goatee or just draw on the beard since there's no way I'm going to grow out a full one.

I am making a Lord Ilpalazzo cosplay, I started it about 5 months ago and am about 70% done now, so many things that go with it!

Just got the armor and the top part of his suit to do now.
Head and body armor is being made with wonderflex and his top clothes are a bit confusing on how to do them thou ><.

Ah, so I'm not the only one cosplaying a Sakura to Sakura-con. ^^ My Sakura from Naruto dress is mostly done - just some little things to patch up. I want to remake my shoes, though, and I need to buy some capris and a wig.
My Kagura from Fruits Basket costume...well, it turned out really badly, and if I have time I'd like to remake it. But as it is, I just need to add the sleeves and then buy all the leg/footwear.
And my Mayu costume (from Fatal Frame 2) is going pretty well. I've got the shirt done and I'm adding the details to the dress. I bought the wrong kind of bias tape, though x_x; I'll have to deal with that. Also need socks and shoes. Sigh...

And I need wigs for all three of them, which I am planning on getting from Cosworx. Eee >_< I need money...
In progress:
Saga - HELLO, DEAR NUMBERS - alice nine. 0% (Planning!)
Shou - HELLO, DEAR NUMBERS - alice nine. 0% (Planning!)
Reita - Zetsu - the GazettE 0% (Planning!)
