My life has been glue and feathers lately.
When I need breaks, I've been working on other sewing projects. Ex: Damn, it wouldn't do me much good to get all 5 sets of wings done and have no altered outfit for myself!
So, I made the main part of my dress out of some remnants of brown stretch pseudo-seude stuff. Sexy fabric! I love it. I need to find my slip and some other stuff before I can wear it, though. i didn't quite have enough fabric to make it exactly how I wanted, but it's very close. I also need to pick up some tan cording Sat. when I go to Jo Ann's.
I also need to finish my halo and figure out how to keep it on my head. I really wish it was clear plastic& lit up.. but I don't know how to manage that without the Halloween or Christmas stuff on the shelves in the ammount of time I have. It stinks.
Unfortunately, N-kun doesn't have his Hyoko clothing. The place he ordered his stuff from went out of business! Suckage!
You have no idea how hard it is to find a plain red hooded sweatshirt& plain red cap. Everything has some sort of logo on it. If I could even find it plain white, that'd be ok. I'd dye it myself. That's another reason why I'm shopping Sat. Hopefully between N-kun and myself, we can get the rest of these wings knocked out this weekend.
I've pretty much given up on having my Shiina costume ready, though. I don't know. The main body of the kimono is peiced together. The lining is sewed. I just need to put some lavendar thread in the machine and sew the lining to the main kimono.. and make the ninja gloves and boot covers. Then I have to make the bow. But the more I think about it, the less I think I'll be able to get it done in time with everything else. If everything else was done, or I knew I didn't have to complete all 5 pairs of wings, I might have time. It's frustrating. I will make this Shiina costume no matter what. It may just happen later.

I actually ended up ordering the hat & sweatshirt for my cos. After searching endlessly at over a dozen shops, I couldn't find it w/o logos on them. They just don't seem to exist in regular retail shops which I was greatly disappointed to find out. I could find logoless tees & regular sweatshirts but couldn't find any with the hood.

We prdered the perfect stuff from a site that sold plain garments for customization. Two weeks went by, his order status on the site said "shipped," and then the owners of the site called him up and told him they were going to refund his money since they went out of business.
There are other sites for that sort of thing, but it's too close to the con to get them now. There are a few customization shops here in town, though, so I'll be hunting that down on Sat.
N-kun told me later that he had a grey hoodie sweater. I should be able to make that one work, and it should look perfect, since Hyouko's isn't bright red.

Re: Rich kid ghetto store
Yup! I was already planning on hitting goodwill this weekend.
