Makai Kingdom comes out tomorrow!!!!

For those of you who don't know about it, it's the new Nippon Ichi strat/tactic RPG.
Others they have made have been: Rhapsody, La Pucelle:Tactics, Disgaea, Phantom Brave.

I already have my preorder mini artbook thing (good for cosplay references, but I don't see any characters I'd want to cosplay here..), and I bought the strat guide last week. I'm really excited about this game, so I'm going to try to get a lot of sewing done tonight so I can spend all of tomorrow playing XD

Last night, I made Norn's underskirt while watching Logan's Run. It was on Turner Classic Movies, and I'd never seen it before. Now I understand the reference made in Robot Chicken about the expired milk :O
Anyway.. that movie had some super cheesey-fabulous costumes XD I tried watching Soylent Green a few weeks ago, but I really couldn't get through it. I think it was because of Charlton Heston. I don't know. In any case.. if you know what Soylent Green is made out of, (and I think just about everyone does) it kind of ruins the shock of the movie, and makes it pointless to watch it anyway. I love TCM, though. I caught an airing of My Fair Lady last week <3 Often, they run blocks of classics with a particular actor in them, and I think it's really cool. One time, when I couldn't sleep, I was watching a Charlie Chaplin marathon.

Anyway, yeah.. I'm a dork. I'm no movie expert, but I like to watch TCM, because it plays the classics I like, and gives me an opportunity to see things I SHOULD have seen by now but haven't.

Anyway... watching Logan's run.. working on stupid skirt...
Norn is going to be a huge costume. :( I'm using my old wedding skirt as the underskirt for this costume. I'm unzipping it a little and hitching it up under my bust to get the length right. It's kind of ghetto, but it'll work. I made the base cream skirt last night, but I haven't finished it yet. I need to go buy a zipper, put a waisband on it, install the zipper, and then wait for the accents.
I can't trim it in the suede until I put the pink triangular accent on the front of the skirt. The trim has to go over it. (Reference photo is "Norn") I was also thinking about going out and buying more clear plastic bubbles. I wanted to experiment with the color a bit, so I pulled one out and played with metallic golds. None of them seemed to look very good, so I remembered I had a tube of antique gold creme acryllic laying around somewhere that would look very nice.

It wasn't until I found the acryllic and started playing with it that I remembered WHY I bought the stuff in the first place. It was to paint the bubbles for my Silky costume!!
I wanted to smack myself in the head. I have 12 gold-painted bubbles already... they're just attached to the shoulder armor. If I pry those off and peel the hotglue off the edges... they're already cut to the right size and everything. I can just use those. :O
I've already cut up Silky's two skirts, and used the bodice for my EGL costume... I have been hanging onto the shoulder armor for no particular reason other than the fact that it was my first fiberglassing project and I was partial to them. But... if I use those "gems" off that costume, I've re-used nearly every bit of that Silky costume! (Not the wig, nor the hat, nor the bracelets.. but damn near everything else) That's a pretty major accomplishment, IMO. I also feel that old costume has had quite a bit of milage. I was thinking that maybe those bubbles wern't 100% color-correct.. but they've already been cut and painted, and would have a little added significance for coming off that costume, so I think I'm going to use them.

Oh yeah.. forgot to mention, but wig and ear test photos are up.
I need ideas on how to attach those ears, and whether or not there's a good way to make my ears invisible :/ I finally gave in and just made a seperate gallery for Norn crap, since that's almost all I've been uploading lately. I'll have to go move all the norn stuff to the correct folder later.

    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
