He really doesn't have the money for the right sandals, so we went to wal-mart and found some bamboo-top black thong sandals that will work. They were 2 dollars a pair, and I think they are probably a little more accurate (if possible) than my platform ones, so I bought a pair as well. For 2 bucks, you really can't go wrong. I might by the right kind of waraji or whatever they are called some day.. but most places want around 40 bucks for them, and they look like a pain to tie :X I didn't spend that much on the costume in general.. and I guess I'm just getting lazy, but I don't know if I'll ever turn around and pick them up.
Anyway.. fiberglass project is pretty much done. I finished his hollow mask last night. I want to make raised teeth, but right now, they are just scored into the mask& painted. The paint on the red parts is photographing a little unevenly, so I might go back over that again if I can remember. Other than that, though, and a small warp in the corner, I'm really happy with how it turned out. Especially the cracks that I cut into it.
Bear suits... um, yeah..
I've had a sneezing fit all weekend, and I've felt miserable. I can't tell if it's from the fake fur, or the cold front. R-kun's bear suit is almost done. I need to attach ears, tail, and sew the hood onto the outfit. Then, I need to figure out the whole zipper thing. I opted for seperate gloves and boot covers, since it would be easier, but I don't know if I'll get around to making them. I haven't started on mine yet...
And I forgot to buy fabric for the fansview project.
All this, and can you beleive I don't have a ride to Ushi at all this year? The con is like.. the weekend after next. I have a room. I just have to figure out how to get to it, and the one person I trust that's driving down from Dallas won't answer his phone(s)
I'm going to try my best to pack light for this one. Two suitcases& iron cosplay. I may just bring a small hand-held cooler, and eat out a lot this year. I don't know. Carrying everything is a pain, and I feel very alone this con :/ I'd feel better if I could get in touch with N-kun. And I'm worried about drama this year, too. I don't think I've done anything to piss anyone off, but a lot of people I know are in liminal states right now& that could cause problems. I guess I'm having a bad feeling about this Ushi? I don't know. I'm starting to really get tired of cons in general. Same guests every time, every con is the same. There arn't any guests I've been super excited about in a while, either. Well, I guess.. that animefest a while back was awesome because they had MAX.. heh
Anyway.. i'm working hard at procrastinating.
Oh yeah.. and I uploaded a few photos.
3 in the in-progress section. (Hollow mask& two photos of R-kun in his incomplete Ichigo outfit)
1 in non-costume photos. It's for Bevo:X
