As always, that was fun! Sadly, I didn’t wear all the costumes I took with me. Friday was a success with Wafuku Ten. Having the new brush set from Morphe – which it seems I need to make a post about – and their brush cleaner really helped me with my make-up. I also planned… Read More Marcon 53: Post-Con
I’m lounging on one of my beds in my room, with the other taken up by the costumes, relaxing and getting organized for the weekend. For Marcon 53! I hadn’t remembered I included tonight in my reservation. At first I thought I’d want an extra day off, but the I remembered the main reason: I… Read More Marcon 53: Here We Go!
When I first forayed into the world of cosplay, I was a college student without access to fabric and sewing machines let alone any knowledge as to what to do with them. I was going down to Goodwill and seeing what I could find while styling my hair to match as close as possible. I… Read More Stepping Up My Game
Today, once I left the office, my Spring Break officially started. I’ve been avoiding doing any school-related work. The closest I have gotten to school work is looking through the readings I need to do before class resumes after break. It’s been so nice. One of the things I’ve been doing instead is working on… Read More Refresh
Recently I decided to see how most people defined “casual cosplay”. It is confusing and debated and a mess. The reason was I wanted to add a new category on here and wanted to use a non-debated term. That is why I’m adding the “Comfy Corner”. I realized that I have done a few cosplays… Read More Casual/Closet debate

I got home earlier from Marcon 52. I’m tired. I’m ready for a nap. I am so happy! It was so much fun seeing friends, going to panels, geeking out, and wearing costumes! I deviated slightly from my original plans. I realized I don’t have appropriate black pants that fit for “Barcelona” Ten. So I… Read More Marcon 52 Success!
I know I’ve been doing a lot of talk lately but not much do. That is going to be changing. Within the week I’m going to be purchasing both a Mooby Hat, from the Secret Stash, and a Silent Bob coat, from AbbyShot!! After sewing some black wefts into the hat, I will finally, after… Read More Shopping Plans
The semester is winding down, which means I’m going to have three weeks of time to get work done. And I’ve been watching things that are really getting my brain in a costuming mode. Last week, I watched Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity! and of course I had to do something. Thankfully that led to finding… Read More Work is coming!
On Friday, I showed my class about 20 minutes of the awesome documentary Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity. It got me inspired to look at a few things and renewed interest in a costume idea I had. That led me to look to see if I could find fabric to make some more accurate pajamas for… Read More Eureka!
