That was a wonderful convention. I’ve already gushed about it over on Polymind, but I wanted to talk costumes a bit more. Arthur was the most recognized costume of the weekend. Come to think about it, I may make Arthur a staple of Marcon. I had my picture taken three times, which was great. I… Read More Marcon 2014
So, I got to thinking. I’ve got a lot of work to do to get Arthur’s wig in shape. Then a thought popped up: why not go genderbend instead? So I tried on the pyjamas and liked it. Then I tied my hair back and knew it would be perfect! So it looks like Arthur’s… Read More Slight change in plans
Now that I know what I’ll be doing with my life for the next year, my motivation has returned! Tomorrow I’m going to get some new razor blades so I can get Harry’s wig in better shape. Sunday I’m going to get working on his coat! Finally! Granted I’ve got less than a month to… Read More Motivated
This weekend I actually got something done for two costumes. I washed the fabrics for Harry’s new coat and One’s bathing suit! This is the first time I’ve washed the fabric before cutting and sewing. What can I say, usually I’m so excited to get going that I just dive right in. But now I’m… Read More Preparation
Well, I just spent over $100 on stuff to go workout in. Yes. It is sad that I finally get motivation to work out after spending money on it, but at least the motivation’s there. How does this relate to cosplay and costuming? You must be new to this. I’m looking forward to being more… Read More Motivation
Yeah. This weekend. Nothing costume-related happened. I was all ready to get started on Harry when I realized I didn’t have enough space in the living room to lay out the fabric. Grrrr. And I managed to totally forget to get things set up to get the photo for Becks ID done. Grrrrr. One thing… Read More FML
As much as I want to, and probably will, work on my haori this weekend, I need to get working on things for Marcon. I know I’ve been saying this for a while, but I finally have the motivation to do it! Yesterday my new black canvas for Harry’s new coat arrived. I’m hoping to… Read More Weekend priorities
I know I said I wasn’t going to post, but I’ve been really busy lately and just can’t stand not posting here anymore! Okay. No progress has been made on getting costumes made. The pattern for One’s bathing suit finally arrived, which is progress of a kind. I have gotten my sewing table up and… Read More I give up!
As you can see over to the right, things are moving along nicely. Everything has arrived for Ten’s suit. Now I can go ahead and get the mock-up made and pray that I have enough striped fabric. If I can do this right, it’s going to look amazing! I really need to stop procrastinating on… Read More Get this party started!
It’s now official. I’m going to MARcon! I’ve registered and reserved my hotel room. I am so excited! I was never this excited for Ohayocon, but I think I know why. First, I was going to the con every day from my apartment. I figured, why bother getting a hotel room? Last year I realized… Read More MARcon!!!
