Yay for reusing and recycling. :) Every little bit that you don't have to buy new helps!

You said it! I totally will make use of the excess cloth left from my husband's Shishio cosplay if I need to for a different idea.

The best would be to sew them on there, but if that's not possible, then I would say fabric glue is a life savor-- it's tough and the attachment will be strong too.
=)

I tested my felt glue; it actually works pretty well too. I have to brush it on though with a paintbrush. XD I can't get it come out through the tip without it clogging up. Stupid thing. Ah well; still works. I'll take a picture of my shirt so far soon and post it later. And for under my skirt, once I find the proper one, I bought a pair of leggings that I'll cut to the right length and hem up the cut edges. That will definitely look better than a pair of biker shorts, ne? =P

I already knitted my collar, and I still need to find my plate for my headband so I can make my "crack" through it before I buy the cloth to make the rest of it. As for the rest of the outfit, I'm still working on the clouds for the shirt, trying to find the skirt, and still have a lot of the accessories to buy including the wig. >.< Man I have a way's to go. XD

Apparently I have a habit of introducing at least two new projects. I only wore my Robin Sena once but I already feel like I've overdone it. Odd, ne? But if worse comes to worse I may nix one of my projects and repeat my R. Dorothy cosplay; some people seemed to love that one.

Anyway, progress! (Or lack thereof!)

1. Amaya Yamanaka (original Jrock) = I got a black felt rose, a black silk obi, leftover white makeup from my R. Dorothy cosplay and the purple violin I've had for ages, and not much else. I'm STILL not sure what to do about the bottom part of the outfit. It's either spandex shorts with black/purple striped socks or black stockings and garters.
The top will be a purple kimono going down to the waist, and it'll be a little daunting since I want to try sewing myself this time, and I DON'T want to ruin good brocade. I'm also thinking of belts on the sleeves and fingerless gloves. Shoes may be handmade "okobo" or geta. For accessories I've decided to make odango and Pocky jewelry. I need clay, metal jewelry pieces, and toothpicks for the odango, then just use sealant on real Pocky and drill little holes in them. The biggest project will be the top and the "Pocky katana". For the latter, now that I know where to get dowel rods, that'll be easy. And THEN there's a wig. I plan to put amethysts in it somewhere, and I got a good deal on my R. Dorothy wig last year at a local store, so I'm hopeful about that. :)


2. Sailor Hinata (Sailor Moon/Naruto mix) = I'm even less ahead on this than Amaya. I literally have nothing. I've never worked with fur, never mind making a skirt before (I'm not even sure if the skirt will be dark blue or all fur), and the typical white leotard will have to be beige. I don't see a problem with the front bow, though. The brooch on the bow will be the yellow patch with the red cloud you see on the sleeve of Hinata's parka, and that'll be easy, too. The fur sailor collar and the V edge may also pose a challenge.
Shoes might be a problem. I plan on using blue pumps as opposed to the Naruto sandals, and I always have a little trouble finding shoes in my size (I has big feet... :( ). The kunai pouch I think I can do; I have an old camera pouch lying around somewhere. The kunai that'll be in the pouch will take a little work. The bottom will be a blade fashioned from either clay or foam, but the stick/ring part will be a bubble wand for my "Byakugan Bubble Blast" attack, so the blade will have to be facing UP as opposed to actually being in the pouch, since that's where the bottle of bubbles will be.
Tiara: don't get me started. Choker necklace, we'll see. Wig...I'll see what I can do. On Hinata's side bangs I'll put these slip-on odango covers in the style of Hinata's eyes in "Byakugan" mode. I'm a little squeamish about contacts, and I thought this'd be a creative solution.


3. Third project = don't know yet. D'Eon de Beaumont, Yoruichi, or Re-L. What do you guys think? :D

My cosplays for Acen will be done months before Acen cause I'm gonna wear them for other cons. My only problem is which ones will I actully get to wear to Acen cause I have so many.

Diva from Blood+ is done I just need to make her sword and some alteraions.
Histugaya from Bleach is all cut out just need to put it together but I plan on making his Bankia if I can find a clear enough pic.
Tsunada is done and had never been worn.
Riku from Kingdom Hearts is a Halloween Town version. I'm still gathering material for that one. I'm wearing it for Halloween but I like it so much I can't resist the urge to wear it again.
Cornelia from Code Geass is in the planning stage but it's very doable as far as budget wise but time wise might run out.
I was also planning a Ghost in the shell Motoko cosplay. Since all my other costumes will be done in like October I think I'm gonna use the time betwee then and Acen to work on this one.

Well Good Luck to everyone with your cosplays!
Acen10cosplays:(Trinity Blood)Esther Blanchett,(Bleach)Nel resleased form,(KH2)Card form Sora,(Code Geass)Li Xingke,(FMA)Edward decoy

trust me you're not! ^_-

I'm still in the planning phases myself. I have to sketch out a few ideas first and see what I need to make and what I can thrift store.

I am in the same boat.
I have an entire list of things I need to buy (like leotards and prop materials) but I have no money to get it done.
Which kinda makes me sad because I really want to make sure that I get all of them done.

And done well

Same here. Although I usually have to actually go looking in the stores before I can decide if I'm going to buy or make. Sometimes something I think will be easy to find is not available anywhere and other times I'll find something to buy that I had planned on making from the beginning. :P

I'm starting Lenne from FFX-2 within the next week probably. Me and a friend cosplaying Yuna have finally decided to start, fun times.

Matt from Death Note I have at least started buying things for. I have the wig and ordered a shirt (although the ship date is constantly being pushed back).

Well, now it's a tie between Yoruichi and Yumi from "Code: LYOKO". Hey, do you know where to get leotards (and good fabric paint/dyes)? I saw dyes at Jo-Ann's, but I just wanted to make sure that they weren't the only place.

Hmm, try Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby too... or any artsy store (but those tend to be just a tad pricier than Wal-Mart).

How about leotards? (this'll probably be a pain , though probably not as much as the fur skirt and the sailor collar...I need a beige leotard, too, or one I can easily dye beige.) I'm too excited about this Sailor Hinata project :D

As for Amaya Yamanaka, it's just a matter of getting the top, figuring out the design of the bottom and getting a wig to work on. I want to try styling wigs myself this time as opposed to buying one. The character's original, anyway, so I want to work on her personally as much as possible. My mom also showed me a few tips on sewing, so once I get some fabric I'll try out what little skills I have left. But hey, you can't get better without trying. :lol:

I've only planned out what I need and how much of it for my Sora cosplay. >.> Although, the base of the Kingdom Key I'm using is finished. Really, I don't even know my other cosplays yet....maybe Chrome and Belphegor or uh maybe something that isn't seen so often. >.<

...that is all.

Hmm... try eBay? I honestly don't know where you can find a beige or dye-able one, unless you want to make your own, lol. I can try looking for some patterns for ya. As for Amaya, let me know if you need any tips. You're already aware of my cosplay guide (link in my signature) so don't hesitate to ask if something helpful isn't there...

Ai-yah, most of my work invovles touch-ups. Jewelry. Doing Summoner Yuna's jewelry is such a gigangic pain because I have a hard time finding it :( I think the only one I'm really having an issue with is her chain-link (no better word, lol) bracelet. I want to start a new costume but my mum (who owns the sewing room) would have a fit :(

How about leotards? (this'll probably be a pain , though probably not as much as the fur skirt and the sailor collar...I need a beige leotard, too, or one I can easily dye beige.) I'm too excited about this Sailor Hinata project :D

As for Amaya Yamanaka, it's just a matter of getting the top, figuring out the design of the bottom and getting a wig to work on. I want to try styling wigs myself this time as opposed to buying one. The character's original, anyway, so I want to work on her personally as much as possible. My mom also showed me a few tips on sewing, so once I get some fabric I'll try out what little skills I have left. But hey, you can't get better without trying. :lol:

For leotards I've been looking at dance stores.
I've seen them in beige too (more like skin tone beige but still I think it may be what you want.) sadly i can't give you the link because it is on a different computer.
Just google search dance leotards. I think it's called discout dance supply. They have a huge selection.

And your Amaya problem is the same as my Kaminari problem. Mostly with the wig...-sigh-

With the Amaya top I wouldn't mind sewing it myself, but working with brocade scares me; it can unravel so easily, and it's a little thick...

I will.
I probably won't have any progress pictures until November/December when i'm able to get some sewing done.
I'm thinking that in November I'll buy my sewing machine so I can get used to it before I tackle my cosplays.
I'll probably get the other materials I want as well.

Of course though - I'll leave wigs for last. Lol
