Lummi - will pm you about make up help.

I attempted to make my glove rolls/toppers but failed to take into account the fluff in the middle and used up all my fabric. I have to go buy more fabric/fluff...

Wig still hasn't arrived!! I hope it makes it in time.

Head gear to make, and leg warmers to make from skivvy sleeves. Two days to do it, and that's between helping out both mum and Tejay. I CAN DO THIIIIS. Still haven't even decided who I'll be cosplaying for the second day. x.x

So guys, we have 7 days and 10 hours until the con now. Panicking yet? I AM. SOMEWHAT.

But I think I can still get stuff done, especially now I've decided to just reuse an outfit on Saturday.

Motochika's armour and anchor are still far from complete but I will get them done!! I will! I BELIEVE.

Believing: IT'S WHAT I'M DOING FOR CONRAD.

Although there's not quite so much for me to do.
  • Find a short-sleeved white shirt
  • Alter the black pants I have or see if I can fit a pair of my brother's dress pants
  • Style the wig
  • Restitch and paint the shoes
  • Work out the best way for me to whiten my face, neck and arms
  • Make fake blood bags (optional, but it'd be awesome to give them to John to carry around for me).

I haven't done anything more yet - I had a bad day yesterday in the way of cosplays/sewing. I'm determined to at least get 2 things finished today!! The collar and glove rolls are my mission.

I don't think I'm going to get everything done in time... Even the easiest part of the cosplay is very difficult and ended with me screaming and crying.

I've decided that the Musical Sailor Moon cosplay I had planned isn't going to get finished in time so I'm just focusing on the uniform and maybe taking in another cosplay to wear if I feel like it.

My trousers are unaltered, but I do have a potential backup option if push really comes to shove.
John still has my wig from when she kidnapped it for a mufti day, and it seems that she's going to style it? My inner control freak is crying, no matter how much I may trust her xDD
I have theories for both the fake blood and the whitening. I don't think I'll be able to make bags, so I might just put the blood in a drink bottle. Or a coffee cup.
Mum has just left. I have a minimum of 15 minutes, maximum of... one hour? TIME TO GO EXPERIMENTING.

  • Find a short-sleeved white shirt
  • Restitch and paint the shoes
  • Work out the best way for me to whiten my face, neck and arms
  • Fake blood.

So with the change of plans came new(ish) cosplays. I've modified the sleeves of my Stellvia uniform so they no longer reach past my finger tips, I've also got shoes to partly paint red for said Stellvia cosplay.

As for Usgai's high school unifrom it might become Minako's (same uniform different wig) if my stupid wig doesn't come in time (which I doubt will as I've been ringing NZ post everyday for 5 days with no change in status - meaning not in NZ yet). I've sewn in half of the waist band and tomorrow I have plans to do the rest.

To do list:
Paint Stelliva shoes partly red.
Finish putting in the waist band for my Usagi/Minako skirt and hem it.
Detangle Minako wig just in case.
Buy socks for Minako/Usagi uniform.

I'm not even keeping to my plan of breaking it down into chunks. I'm really lazy. Just doing bits and pieces as I feel motivated to do so.

I hate sleeves too!! They're evil!!

Great news!! My wig arrived in Sydney yesterday so I might actually have it by this weekend!!!! cheers Time to celebrate!

I've also detangled Minako's wig just in case the Usagi wig doesn't arrive and have painted the shoes I got for my Stellvia cosplay. Now all that's left is my skirt and petticoat.

Am I the only one who finds doing sleeves are not that evil? xD

I've got my grump on today in a very long time, which is rare.
Reason lies with mum telling me "come out with me I need you to come it'll be quick" and it ended up being 2 and a half hours lost. =_=
Next time she asks when I'm cramming cosplays Imma ask her what her definition of 'quick' is. *mumblemumblegrumpgrump*

Otherwise, Nanami is almost done. All obi and bow bits have been cut and sewn together, sleeves have been sewn closed, and they need to be washed and ironed. Wondering if I should attach any sort of velcro etc to the obi as it seems to hold pretty well so far just by tucking the end bit in. Hmmmmm...

I got to locate my stash of safety pins too, wonder where they went?

No~ I love doing sleeves! I have found some patterns which are wonderful when it comes to sleeves. In fact the sleeves are the easiest part!

so with 4 days to go... I am totally going to make it! Tomorrow I shall go great guns with finishing Harlequin and June.
Thursday and Friday will be dedicated to either finishing Harleqin (if the zip is still giving me grief) and/or making a cosplay for sunday~

Can't believe I'm saying this pre-con but man... I really love cosplay!

The Autobot sigil is among one of the trickiest things I've had to make and sew. But at least this chest panel is halfway to completion.

Then I have the stomach panel, sleeves, scope and targeting optic to do... plus what needs to be done on AA.

Does anyone know somewhere I can get white shoe paint on the cheap/have white shoe paint I can borrow for painting Conrad's shoes?

So far, I still just have to get a shirt and do the shoes. I'll go back to my fake blood recipe from last year. It is making me nervous that John still has my wig D: [/paranoid]

I would have said yes but it's been bulldozed. Have a look through the yellow pages maybe? What type of material is the shoe made out of? Could you just use regular paint?

EDIT: I've just been told by NZ post that my Usagi/Sailor Moon wig has arrived in CHCH!!! Yay!!! cheers cheers cheers cheers So I should have it by tomorrow!
