Ahhh... crap!  
Got my Jo Ann's coupon in the email this morning. 20% off entire purchase :( Noooooooo

Why couldn't they have sent it yesterday morning!?!?

I also got a 40% off coupon for the online store, but who cares about that? I just want a sewing cabinet, and they won't let me use the coupon on that! Sewing cabinets (small ones) are like 400 bucks! (Incidentally, flying to Atlanta is also 400 bucks, and I'm 2,500 miles away from a ticket reward on my frequent flier account. bastards)

Today, I'm going to do the legs& back workout dvd, clean up some more of my cosplay mess in the bedroom, and think about starting that new costume. I ran into plenty of color problems, so I already know the colors will be off on it. I don't think it will be by much, though. My light blue doesn't quite have enough green in it. My dark blue/green doesn't quite have enough blue in it, and I had to go with a flat out dark blue bias tape for all the trim. I couldn't find a good quilting fabric color match. If I had found a good match there, I would have made my own bias tape by hand and covered buttons. Instead, I got bias tape, and bought buttons to match the tape. Then I realized I needed double the buttons that I picked up, and apparently the buttons (ON THE REGULAR SPINNER WITH NO SIGNAGE, NO LESS) were on clearance, and they aren't getting any more. Maybe I'll check the website and use my coupon on 3 more packs of buttons! lawl! Oh wait. They're clearing out all the La Mode buttons, and they aren't even on the website -..-

So there you go. I need three cards of La Mode navy buttons, Hook 1131/ Style 3962. If any of you are at the fabric store anytime soon, please look for me T..T They are regularly priced 3.00 a card, or 1$ per button (WTF), but I got each card for 50 cents. I'm sending my brother to check the two Austin stores today. I don't know about Round Rock. I'm not going to ask him to go up there XD

Edit: So hey, guess what? My brother bailed on me! He's still going to look for buttons, but he's not going to Afest. I'll ask around and see if anyone else wants to go, but if I have no ride, I'll have to consider plunking down the 400 bucks on a plane ticket to D*C.. or just save this fabric for later and not go anywhere this year. :(

Man, today is starting pretty shitty.

I got one card at my Joanns... I can try another tomorrow night! :D Fingers crossed!

Awesome! Thank you so much! Since I has 3 cards, it was an odd number. With yours, it'll be even!

There's an Adventure Time group for D*C, if you wanted to join in! We've got a Finn, Bubblegum, Marceline, Raggedy Princess, LSP, Lady Rainicorn, Breakfast Princess, and maybe a Skeleton Princess? Anyhoo, I am super excited you'll be there <3

That sounds like fun! I'll have to look around and see what I can pull off. I was immediately temped to do something huge and complicated, but I have to remember I'm flying with it! I'm tossing around the idea of either Dr. Princess, Flame princess, or purple princess. Are you guys doing body paint? Might help me choose!

Em wears Mac White Face&Body for Marceline, to get a pale vampire look. But none of us really do skin colors (I wear too much blush, but that's about it!)

Ok! Put me down for Purple Princess. That one looks like fun :) I like the design, but I don't want to do a purple face XD

I wasn't sure if she was still with the company or not. I haven't talked to you guys in person in years! :O

Yep, I do. Going to Vegas this weekend, but I can totally check what stores have your buttons for ya next week. You still need 2 cards sounds like?
HIDE your facekyonomiko on July 27th, 2012 12:27 pm (UTC)
I do! I'm not leaving until the end of August, so whenever you get a chance to check is fine. Thanks!
(Oh.. and I've been a total slacker. I'm sitting here staring at a box for you that I just haven't put in the mail yet because I'm lazy. lol)

I'm so excited you are coming to Dragon con! Please don't destroy Gogo yet because I will beg you to wear it one more time, even if not to this con. :P Famed Mimic Gogo is totally in FF5.

That being said I checked if Peter is sure he's manly enough to pull of pink and purple and he's good. I will throw together a terrible Raven costume for him and that way you're guaranteed at least 1 other Vesperia person. I don't want to wear the Yuri costume but I might. I will whine about it for now.

omg there totally already was a group! awesome! Cagnazzo is lol! And Rubicante is wearing too many clothes XD

Just keep in mind that I cannot start your Kefka until I destroy the GoGo :P Haven't I worn that thing enough with you?? It's falling apart! lol

Yea but.. we could do it better. Valvalis isn't Valvalis without the hair tornado. I bet I could figure out a way to make a hair tornado... Just find some guy to do Rubicante, I'm sure I could make Peter do the turtle guy.

You'd want some of that really puffy, kinky fake hair from the ghetto stores, and hair spray the crap out of it! You know.. the stuff they use for braiding& dreadlocks
