Ushicon & next year's con season  
I started thinking about Ushi a little bit today. You see, I haven't given any thought towards costumes yet. I know that I promised Celine a Pretear costume, but I haven't gotten to work on it at all. The costume is not THAT complicated, but I did want to make a bony-looking fiberglass chestpeice that would require me making a duct tape/plaster mold of my front side, and then putting the fiberglass on top. It would be really cool, and fit really well, but it's work, you know? I feel so lazy. I would love to make an awesome Takako dress, build a wig, and have that fiberglass chest peice, but at the same time, I don't feel like doing a damned thing.

I'm bringing Mayuri to Ushi if I can fix him up
I'm bringing Norn to Ushi, even though she takes up shitloads of room

Those two are certain. Takako would be an added bonus if I get it done.
I'm also thinking about a Doubutsu no Mori costume. I still want to make the bear suits for me& R-kun. I think it would be like a 1-day project per suit. And I think they'd be fun to wear. I don't know. I haven't really had a whole lot of confidence in my cosplay lately, so I haven't felt like doing it much. I mean, I have a great support group of freinds who also cosplay, but I also have people who are supposed to be my freinds give me a great deal of shit about what I do and my costume choices. When complete strangers say crap, it's a lot easier to blow them off, but it's different when your freinds say things. It's a lot harder to blow it off and do your own thing. Man.. And that Norn costume.. it turned out well, and it's super cute.. but man, that color looks horrible on me. It makes my face look even blotchier than it normally is.. and while I think the costume is super cute, I have problems seeing it looking cute on me :(
It's a dilemma.
It makes me want to procrastinate instead of tackle the problem, and since it's a hobby, that's ok. But it's the story of my life. Without someone behind me pushing me through, I'd most likely to sit outside and stare and the problem and hope it goes away. I don't know why.

Anyway... R-kun visited yesterday because there was a small chance we'd be going to Houston with malophyte. It didn't end up happening, though, which is ok. I still had fun hanging out with freinds and karaoke-ing.

Akuma's week off starts tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.

When is Ushicon supposed to be this year, anyway?

I kind of know what you're talking about re: costumes. I vaguely want to work on a couple of things, but (a) I'm too apathetic and (b) I have absolutely no confidence in what I'm doing. Actually cosplaying at Ushicon again might be fun, except I don't know what the hell I'd wear. Maybe Mulberry - he's close to being in good repair. I should really work on fixing my Granado Espada costume in preparation for AX (if I even GO now), but I JUST DON'T CARE. Augh.

I'm excited to get to see Norn, because you're incredibly cute in photos, and I'm sure I'll be crippled at the adorableness in real life. crippled.

I'm (slowly) working on my Pretear costume too, but mine's really easy except for the wig. And the shoes, god I hate Mawata's shoes. Maybe I'll just wear school loafers instead of her hideous turquoise booties. If I were a pampered socialite, I would wear attractive shoes. >_

Yeah, the wig D:
I think the lulu from amphigory (the wavy one) would be a really good base wig for that one, and you could probably get it in a close color without sharpies :O

I honestly thought she wore loafers. Wow :O

I need to finish N-kun's staff for the Atelier costume, but I don't know if I'll get it done or not. I think Celine might still have it.
