Costume stuff (-70-72ish)  
Poor Livejournal. It's so dead! I've even been more active in the LJ cosplay community because there's not much going on here!

I am updating my costume schedule for A-kon again. I can't seem to figure out WTF is going on, so maybe writing it down will help:

Fri: Scarmiglione (FFIV), Bleach (MAYBE)

Sat: Kefka (FFVI), Pascal (Tales of Graces)

Sun: UHHHHHHHHH Yumichika school outfit?

So that's where I'm at now. A lot of it will depend on what time Jisha& I get there on Friday, whether we want to try to get to the Bleach photoshoot, and whether or not we want to wear ALL THE COSTUMES. Oh, and when we leave on Sun.

By the looks of my wacky hair, though, I may not even need to bring the Yumichika wig. We'll see! :O

My graces costume was like 75% store bought, and I'm totally cool with that. I think its' awesome that I could find most of the solids at places like American Apparel for a change, and that this costume involves a Tshirt and normal shorts. It's great! I'll have to decide how involved I want to get with altering things, and whether or not I will have time for a staff. I mostly finished the wig last night, so all I really need to do is make the scarf, the harness thing, and modify garments. Still up in the air about a staff. Might make one out of foamcore if I have time. I don't know the best way to cut foamcore, though, and I always have a problem with it. I am thinking I might try my electric turkey carver this next time. We'll see. Props can be a pain, and I don't know what will fit in Jisha's car.

I need to get some more work done on Kefka. Maybe this afternoon? Yay, cosplay!

I think your lineup looks good. I'm doing 3 costumes with you this time! But I will fill in my other times with Tales of Eternia (Fri I guess) and then Sun will be random whatever, either Ouran or Okage. Depends on what other people are bringing. If nobody brings either, Sunday is totally going to be Star Ocean because that costume is epic, takes up no space, and is totally comfortable.

Really annoyed about buying a wig that looks just like my real hair. Really annoyed!! I should dye it just to validate why I am buying a wig.
