Nothing all that new
Nothing all that new to report but seeing how I haven't posted since last Sunday I figured I was due. Need to try and update this thing a little more regularly since I do check it everyday. I just get too lazy to actually type anything up.
There really isn't anything to report. Been working a lot of really early and really late hours because of the holiday. Just finished six days in a row. I have tomorrow off and Im going to try and finish Christmas presents and maybe get things boxed up and ready to mail out. I'm surprisingly a head of schedule compared to last year. I'm also hoping the fabric I ordered 3 weeks ago will show up tomorrow. That as the first and last time I order anything from Joanns.com.
I've been thinking about my year and there are several costumes I really really hope to do. I have some big groups I'll be doing things with which is very exciting.
-Yue from Cardcaptor Sakura for Otakon. This has been on the "to-do" list for years. I wanted to cosplay him before I even wanted to cosplay Syaoran. But I couldn't figure out a way to make the wings look right. He has very interesting wings and I just didn't think turkey feathers would have the look I wanted. Well..I figured out what I am going to do and I think they are going to be AMAZING. Expensive..but amazing. I'm not going to reveal too much yet.Not until I know whether I can actually afford it. This is for a big CCS/Clow Card group that is gathering for Otakon but I have a feeling I'll be wearing Yue a lot this year.
-Hera from Saint Seiya for Otakon. I figure that is as soon as I can afford to get it done. This has also been on the to-do list for several years...basically since I worked at Joanns and that was 6 years ago. I finally think I might be at the level to be able to tackle it. And thanks to Kakyou I now own an airbrush, which was the one item I thought I would need to do this costume justice. Another expensive cosplay but since Lyn has plans to do Saint Seiya stuff too..I figure its time to get my butt in gear so I can join her!
-WCS costume for Katsucon. Yes..still a secret. I already have the three layers cut out and the lining for the first layer is all sewn and on the dressform. This is going to be a true test of my skills and yet I'm really excited for all the different things I am doing. There will be gradient dying, embroidery, air brushing, resin, bead making..I really hope it all comes together to make something very elegant.
-Suboshi from Fushigi Yuugi for Katsucon. I love Fushigi Yuugi and Suboshi's ending outfit was one of my first costumes ever. I'm finally doing his default outfit and it looks really good on the dressform. I'm very excited. Plus I will have an Amiboshi and a huge group thanks to Starlighthoney's group. It's really going to be awesome to have a large FY cast. We have all the Suzaku seishi, Soi, Tomo, Me and Amiboshi, Suzaku and maybe Seiryu so far. We really need to find a Nakago though.
-Cain from Trinity Blood for Animazement (remake). Yep..I'm thinking about remaking him. Since Utai is doing Seth I figured it might be time to pull it out of the closet and update it. It was a test of my skills all those years ago. Now that I know more about sewing and construction I though it was a good time to redo him. I've always wanted to anyway.
-Wild Tiger's Hero Suit from Tiger and Bunny. I SOOOOOOO want to do this. Like BAD. Every time I see someone who has done one or see pictures of the figures I'm just like..I need to do this. It would be so awesome. I am such a hardcore Tiger fangirl and to have his suit would be like..Awesome. I just don't know how to fit it in with all these other big projects. It's going to be a crazy year.
Okay so enough of that XD Wish me luck on all these crazy projects.
Anyway..I'm going back to watching my football game now. Hope everyone is having a good holiday season!
