Stuff done!  
I didn't work on costumes much yesterday. Ringo and I hung out, and I got some wedding stuff done. I managed to get all the flowers I absolutely needed for sabout 144.00. Yay! Unfortunately, it looks like most local photographers are all $1,000 a pop. That's depressing.
But... back to the florist- I got:
9 boutaniers
5 corsages
my bouquet
all for 144. My bouquet is going to be the large, over-the-arm type. It's going to have 5 calle lillies! And some foliage.. and a pretty gold ribbon& bow ^..^ It's going to look so nice :} The florist told me a funny story, though. He said that it's hard to get the lillies in when they're perfectly open, and sometimes they come in when they haven't opened completely. So... as a bit of a visual trick, they have to stuff tissue paper in the bottoms of the lillies to make them look open. XD This just cracks me up. Hey.. whatever works!

I had a store meeting early today.. I didn't want to wake up early.. and I'm tired... I wanted to go back to sleep, but I don't think I'll be able to. Maybe I'll work on costume stuff. >..< There are only a few small things left I need to do for bloodberry, and then we can take some more pictures. The thing is.. even if I do full makeup, etc... It won't look as good as it will on the day of the convention, b/c my hair won't be frizzy. I'll get a better idea of how to tape my chest, and how the liquid latex will look, though.. which is good. Have to wait and see.

I'm still waiting on FiFi's to give me a quote on my wig. I'm a bit paranoid, though, b/c I'm having problems finding a nice long 60 inch or more wig that I can style into a ponytail for my Millenia costume. I'm worried that I'm going to have to pay out 120 bucks or so for a wig. I think it's kind of ridiculous, but what can you do? I don't know... It's bugging me quite a bit, but we'll see what happens.
On the bright side, I won the PERFECT shoes for my Millenia/Lilly costumes. I'm going to be sad.. having to cut them up and tear them apart.. but when they're done, they'll be the PERFECT shoes for TWO costumes... and I'll be very happy!

Hooray for ghetto-rigging flowers! XD That's so... us!

As for the wig: If Fifi's quote is outlandish, we COULD try sewing Ragdolly extensions into long wefts, and sew them into a color-match wig. The thing is, though, you saw how thin the extensions get when you make them the full 60'' long, so it would take a lot of them to fill out enough wefts to do what you need to for Millenia, which may make the price a push in the long-run, for a LOT more effort. That was a poorly constructed sentence. But you get the idea, we need a lot of hair and a lot of hot-glue, baby. XD

The LAST thing I want to do is try making a Ragdolly bob-cut wig into a 60+ inch long ponytail wig.. and THEN have to buy 6+ packages of 60 in. extensions for the "crown"
Though.. I suppose I could say that the LAST thing I want to do is pay 150.00 for a wig. Go figure. >..< This is going to be more expensive than I thought.
I'm starting to wonder if FiFi's is going to be the best route?
