Cosplay wise I’ve still been kinda MIA. Busy with other things. :/
Still trying to finish my trade with Sean and I finally finished Bob’s winter school uniform- because that thing has been sitting unfinished in my closet for over a year. Pathetically enough I’ve made that skirt four times now and the top three times. How is it that the easiest things seem to give me the most trouble? And how is any of this a sane hobby? Really, sometimes I wonder.

Otakon 2008

Otakon’s over (thank goodness x_X) and wasn’t nearly as spectacular as I had hoped it would be. Basically didn’t do much cosplaying at all. Now, back to reality (augh, that’s always such a drag).
I’m looking forward to starting work on new projects, and after the bleh feeling that was Otakon I’m probably going to start cutting down my cosplaying at conventions- it’s just a huge pain in the butt and I don’t enjoy doing it so much. :/

The battle with my new wig has been pathetically unsuccessful. I just don’t like the way it looks. At this point I’m considering forgetting the new wig altogether and just putting bob moon wig efforts towards revamping the old wig.
Other than the ongoing battle with bob’s wig and and the never ending attempt to find time and motivation to get photos- I have a trade to finish with my friend Sean and work to do on a costume for Otakon. So, hopefully it rains this weekend- I’d like to get as much done as I can way ahead of time.

Haven’t been doing much cosplay stuff lately because of other work, I did grab a few pictures of my old ball costume before it gets packed away to storage foreverrrr… and then here’s some more random photos of the Sera Myu stuff that has taken over parts of the apartment.
Last fall I remade my Myu Eternal costume over completely- since my old one was really horrible, and I still haven’t gotten any photos of it. ;_;

I finally gave in to my nit-pickings and bought a new Sailor Moon wig, which means hopefully next month I can get good pictures of all of those Usagi/Sailor Moon/Serenity costumes that have been piling up in my closet, yay! I’m at a bit of a standstill this month costume-wise while I’m busy with regular work.
Kelly and I were hoping to make it to the New York Cherry Blossom Festival next month, but plans for that fell through. Bummer.

Anime Boston 2008

Anime Boston was exhausting but fun. I sewed my Neptune costume together the night before we left, so it’s got a bit of wonk to it- I’m glad that all of the dying was out of the way early or I probably would have lost it and passed out on my sewing machine.

There is a huge amount of work to do in preparation for this weekend’s photoshoot, I kind of want to stab myself in the eye or sleep for the rest of the week, but sadly I have actual (not happy fun cosplay related) work to do on top of fun work, so I should really get going. Fun work seems like it should be an

More dying. Forgot that the fabric for Uranus’s boob-bow needed to be dyed. Seriously, they need to sell fabrics in more colors, now my hands look like they’ve been dipped in toxic pee. The whole wearing latex gloves to dye stuff hasn’t worked so well for me, I usually manage to stick my whole arm into dye-tinted water at some point and make a nice hand-dye-marinade in the glove. Mmmmm tasty.
Finished my silly Neptune shoes, which somehow took the same amount of time as making a bodysuit. Figured out another way of attaching the sailor collars, so I think I’ll mess around with that, hopefully it looks better than my moon collar.
I’ve been shoving food in my face like it’s going out of style, so here’s hoping I fit into this costume this weekend. Filet mignon, banana stuffed french toast with strawberry butter, and stuffed mushrooms yuuuuuuuum. Man, now I want a snack.
