Left 4 dead wedding dress Witch cosplay 95% done
I got the wig, the contacts, I made her long nails, I have all the body paint and the blood the only thing I need to figure out now is how to make the dress look dirty and ripped up.


Samara fron the ring 100% done
I got a gown and made it look dirty like its been sitting in dirty water. I have the long wig and the body paint. And I know how to make my skin look kind of ripped up. :)/> I still don't know what I'll do for the Third day :(

I really need to finish my Slingshot, Iron Shield and Kukri. They're almost done, but now it's just a matter of gettin' off my butt and going to the garage.
Always on the run!

My sword for Samurai Mulan has been a slow, painful process... I pretty much need to finish sealing the insulation foam before I can paint... which will take a couple weeks due to only being able to work on it during this weekend and the week of ACen. I'll be cutting it close!

Sewing is pretty much all that's left to do: Sakura's dress, modding Nel's white pants, and especially Nel's jacket (which has unofficially been dubbed by Mom as the 'ice cream coat'); I can't relax until that's done. That and fixing ALL of Byakuya's accessories (I'm being flummoxed by his waraji sandals right now). And I just shipped my ram skull for Nel Tu (and her Kon plushie) to my Rukia friend so she can hold it for me 'til I get down there. I just pray it keeps together. *shakes fist at USPS*

I also want to go to the Soap Bubble in my Nel Tu cosplay, so I'm thinking of making a 'rave-friendly' ram's skull hairpin. :lol:

Horrible me, but I still got to buy fabric for one new cosplay for little sister. I got the wigs at least. Still gotta style the wigs. And make the full outfits while teaching to teach my little sister at the same time. At least I'm done with planning with a couple of the patterns for my new cosplay. ; w; Gotta work faster and harder.

Hayate Cosplay Staff
-Go to Home Depot for a dowel
-Go to true value for spray paint
-Go to Michaels for paper clay and craft foam
-Arrange time with parents when I can borrow their garage to spray paint

Hopefully I can get the materials for a reasonable amount and actually have the staff for ACen.

I am slowly but surely making good progress. I had to add a few things to my to-do list as things progressed.

So here is the updated version:

*Make Cloak

But my main work is for Pocahontas. I have done most of the body for the dress but I still have a lot to do to finish it

1. Neliel Tu

--sew nightmare of a swirly jacket (thankfully Mom's job)
--find pants (can't seem to find good FLARED ones)
--mod flip flops into Espada sandals
--get white gloves
--make belt/sword holster
--get face paint (I have liquid white, but I need to mix it with a lil' bit of acrylic to get the pink I want)
--style Nel's wig
--mail off ram's skull to my friend

2. "Alice" Sakura Kinomoto

--sew apron and dress (also Mom's job)
--buy wig
--find shoes (specifically Mary Janes, but it's Easter season, so it shouldn't be hard)
--style Sakura's wig

3. Byakuya

--fix up Kenseikan hair pieces in progress
--fix straw sandals in progress
--iron out scarf
--iron out haori, along with some minor alterations
--get/mod gloves
--order tabi socks

Extras: finish Kon plushie for my Rukia and slap together a quick "soul chain" for one of the people in my group


After a frustrating search for prom gloves in my local area (who the hell charges 20 dollars for cheap satin gloves?!!), I once again resorted to the Internet and found white poly-cotton gloves that were the perfect compromise for both Nel Tu and Byakuya--not elbow length, but not short-short wrist length either. Two pairs. $8.50. Free shipping. Boom. :thumbup: The only problem is they may not get here until the week of ACen, so I'm crossing my fingers and toes.

And with my ram's skull now safely at my friend's house, at this point Nel is 95% done....Ijustneedherjacketaaaahhh! :wacko:

As for Byakuya, I had a breakthrough! :w00t: Last year it was heck-and-a-half to thread my hair through my Kenseikan (almost ten minutes) because I assumed my hair was long enough (it barely was), and I was wondering how I'd do it this year, and then it came to me!

HAIR. EXTENSIONS.

I found some old hair extensions of Mom's that matched my hair as closely as possible, and I plan to cut three equal black locks and attach them to the Kenseikan. >__> This'll be quite the experiment.

Finally, my friend's Bleach Soul Chain. I still find it hilarious that this'll be his ENTIRE cosplay. (Hopefully next year I can convince him to follow through with Zommari.)

3. Byakuya

--fix up Kenseikan hair pieces
--fix straw sandals
--iron out scarf do Monday
--iron out haori, along with some minor alterations do Monday
--get/mod gloves in progress(?)
--order tabi socks


Got gloves today. Great for Nel. Not so great for Byakuya. *sigh* However, I will find a way to make this work. At the very least, all my cosplays only need minor things at this point...

--Nel needs jacket and 'rave-friendly' skull piece
--Sakura needs her dress to be finished
--Byakuya needs gloves and wrinkle-free haori/scarf

*crosses everything off of her list except 'Nel's jacket' and 'modding Nel's pants'*

And all the while, I've been going around packing--and for the first time since 2007, everything is fitting into my suitcases despite awkward, deconstructed props. I'll have space for Nel Tu and then some! :thumbup:
