EVERYTHING! Lol. But no..seriously...everything. The only thing I have done so far was pick up all of my patterns.

So here is my endless list.

Angewomon
- Buy material
- Alter & Cut pattern
- Sew Leotard
- Cut-outs for Leotard
- Make Belts
- Buy boots
- Alter boots
- Make helmet
- Buy wig
- Buy wing materials
- Make Wings
- Buy Gloves
- Alter glove
- Make Scarf
- Make Breast plates

Hikaru
- Buy Material
- Make Leotard
- Buy Gloves (black)
- Buy Gloves (red)
- Alter Red Gloves
- Make Headband
- Buy wig
- Buy white gym shoes
- Make Boot covers
- Make Shoulder Pads
- Make Hand pads
- Make Arm guards
- Make Back...thigies

Sailor Luna
- Buy Materials
- Cut Pattern
- Sew Leotard
- Alter Leotard skirt for dual layer
- Make Bows
- Buy Gloves
- Alter gloves
- But Boots
- Alter Boots
- Make Tail
- Buy Wig
- Style Wig
- Make Ears
- Make collar necklace
- Make Earrings
- Buy headband
- Make Sailor Collar
- Buy Bow Bell Charm



So...this is what needs to be done. And I'm sure I am going to find more as I am going along. Right now, I really need to hit the fabric store and buy all my materials. Especially for the leotards since this is my first time really working with stretchy material, I want to make sure that I give myself enough time so that if I mess up I can still buy what I need.

Guess I'll head back to Vogue and see if they can help me. Last time I went I was only able to find one person who was nice enough to walk around and help me. Everyone else didn't listen when I said I didn't know a lot and just pointed at stuff. Was really hard but with the other store options being way out in suburbia....Vogue is my nearest choice.

Hey sparkle!

My second job is actually with Husqvarna Viking. If you are thinking of upgrading your machine I recommend the Husqvarna Eden Rose...it is an amazing machine (unless you already have something crazy better) they are being discontinued for the new sapphires coming in. Almost $2,000 machine for $999 with trade in :) Just throwing it out there to give you ideas...that's what I own and I love everything about it.

You can make a dress form that fits your exact shape for pretty cheap. I followed this Tutorialwith a couple of changes and it only cost about 15 bucks and works wonders.

Instead of a large t-shirt, I used ceran wrap against my bare body as the base. (If you're gonna do that I would suggest doing it with someone your comfortable with) Everything was the same with the duck tape through the cutting. Then once I had resealed it I put it over an old coat hanger I had gotten at a garage sale for 50 cents since it was broke, so then I had a standing dress form.

I know I'm always money concious so just incase you wanted to spend a little more on the actual costume you can this way.



For me I have laundry list it seems like.

I am doing the costume for my husband (Sogeking), mine for Vivi, and I'm right now building a model of the Thousand Sunny for pictures. I have the frame set up but am working on securing the center so people can sit on it safely.

What do I need to do for my possible cosplays? Hmmm

Uncle Ruckus
Find a pink jacket in the style he has. Simple as that.
Get a grey wig modeled after his hair.
Everything else can be found at thrift stores.
Buy aging make-up
Learn how to mimic his voice
try not to become an uncle tom just to get into character

Kinzou
Debate if I should dye my hair and beard grey or buy a fake beard and buy a short wig
Buy Aging make-up
Buy a white suit and white shoes
Talk with my friend who's making the cape about hte progress on it


Eren Jagermiester

Buy jagermiester just for the bottle and see if I can use the bottle as a sword hilt
Save as much beer boxes/cases as I can for the "3D" Gear.
Buy either this shirt: http://www.redbubble.../10575221-jager or this one: https://www.jagersho...nguageID=1&ci=2
Along with a few Jager related stuff.
Buy the Scouting Leigon jacket.

That's pretty much it for me.

i only have the one costume to do but i still have to

-find white pleated skirt
-start sewing together vest (i bought the pattern weeks ago)
-find boots to match it
-dye my hair (will most likely do this a few weeks prior to the con)

I picked a pretty simple cosplay this time but it'll take me just as much work T_T
If anyone has pics of the "crochet" leafeon please let me know! I can't seem to find any of the shots online T_T

I have a lot to do this year :T
I want to make it more special than the last, going 2 days this year.
Day 1. I'm going to be a little more simple, and go as a Visual Kei artist. And I still need to figure out who I'd like to base my costume off of, get the crazy materials like a wig, clip ins, shoes and clothes >.<
And I still need to figure out who I am going to be the next day. My friends and I want to do a group cosplay but we haven't decided of what yet! But... we'll have to by December-January at latest.

Captain Levi/some other Attack on Titan soldier
-Figure out materials for the 3D Maneuver Toaster Gear
-Military jacket (either buy or find a similar jacket and modify)
-Help friends with their cosplays


Touhou Project
-Modify current tonkin hat for Aya to be a bit more tonkin
-Wings
-Get old school SLR camera cleaned up and for actual use

Madoka Magica
-Get new pink wig
-Try and shrink magical boy costume a little bit.

Totally not being crazy and doing all the things. Okay well maybe bringing more than two cosplays but at least they require less props.

Loose weight first and for most part I'll be wearing for the weekend of awesomeness:

Finally start to make Soi Fon (Bleach). Putting her off for two years sucks to see her sit in the closet un-done ha ha

"Old Friends" version of Katara (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

Sophie Hatter Young version (Howl's Moving Castle)

Then finally hang out with friends and eat loads of Ice Cream because it's always hot at that time of year

The cosplay I'm definitely doing is Maya Kitajima from Glass Mask, more specifically her Bianca mask. I'm trying to get a few things to add to it: her long blue cape and her red/white tricorn hat with a large white feather. I have a pattern to make the cape, but not having too much luck yet with the hat.

I'm also working on a "Castle of Hearts" Alice Liddell cosplay from Heart no Kuni no Alice. I have the dress (it's white with red spaghetti straps, hearts, and trim around the top and bottom of the dress), but I'm planning on adding a red cape to the back, and I need red and white striped socks, red or white dress shoes, and create a headband like hers but in red and white. I have a sheer red fabric I'm thinking of using as a shawl as well.

And if my boyfriend and I have the budget to work on it, we were thinking of going as Lucy and Loke from Fairy Tail. He has almost everything he needs for Loke, but I have almost nothing for Lucy. XP Otherwise, he'll likely go as his "dog of the military" persona or as Masumi Hayami from Glass Mask. :)
Cosplay Status: Maya Kitajima - Bianca Mask (Pirate Form - 100%; Glass Mask), Lucy Heartfilia (60%; Fairy Tail)
Castle of Hearts Alice Liddell (100%; Kuni no Alice series), Pearl (100%; Steven Universe)

Recently did a couple of things for my cosplays. Mainly research and planning.
I purchased the wood and adhesive I will need for my angewomon wings and decided on the shape and materials. I have found the wigs that I need for all of the cosplays and plan to go crazy shopping come October so I can grab the halloween sales. Feels pretty good to scratch one thing off that monster list.

I still have to make the automail arm I didn't have time to make last year, and this year I have all the time in the world but hardly any money... ;A;

Other than that, just tidying up things from last year's cosplay and thinking of adding some other things.

Being that this is my first time cosplaying, the list will probably change. I've lost 60 pounds since my last ACen, but I'm about 20 pounds heavy for what I want to do. with that said...

-Drop 20 more pounds.
-Find a tan jacket
-Buy a red tie and white dress shirt
-Buy dark slacks
-Figure out where to even get an artificial apple
-Buy a wig
-Buy a replica Death Note

......This should be fun.

- Finish sewing white dress for Mikasa cosplay
- Buy white slip to go under Mikasa dress
- Buy wig for Mikasa cosplay
- Re-style Tsumugi wig (Bangs need to be a bit shorter, curls need to be re-defined, etc.)

That's all I have for now, everything else has been finished. ^^
