Time to improve my Lara Croft cosplay. I'll be getting a wig this time around instead of using my actual hair. I think the weathered look I can get with my real hair is great, but it's more of a medium brown than a dark brown and it's not long enough (even though I've been growing it out since before last ACen. XD) So...

- Getting a Buttercup + wefts in Dark Brown from Arda that I'll be styling into a ponytail. (The wefts will help with the styling and also adding length.) I would use the Jasmine but I hear it's a pain, and the Jeannie wouldn't look right, so yeah.

- Dyeing the cargo pants I have from a very light khaki to a dark greyish/blueish/greenish (way hard to describe this color XD) to add to the weathered/stained/wet look. Yeah, her pants are more tan, but I really like this color and think it'll work well given what I've seen from other cosplayers.

- Trying to make her bow. I'm pretty sure I can't bring it on the plane with me even without arrows (plus it'd take up too much space), so if I get it done, I'll ask my friends who are driving up instead of flying to take it with them. XD

--buy face paint and sealant
--make arm bracers and headpiece

--find a wolf plush to carry around

--debate about whether to get fabric spray paint and make the galaxy illusion she sometimes has on the inner lining of the cape

....Oh yeah. And I still have to buy supplies so I can make the zanpakuto for my friend's genderbend Yumichika Ayasegawa cosplay. (And not the one that looks like claws. His REAL glowing-vines-of-doom shikai.)

*looks at Boogiepop's list again*

*screams internally*

  • Bracelets/wrist cuffs made
  • Find black gloves
  • See if suit fits
  • Style Wig
  • Find dark grey button-up shirt
  • Make sword from MDF - The BIG project!
  • Buy a pair of oxfords


10th Doctor - Doctor Who - possibly to wear Sunday?
  • Make 3D glases
  • Find suit
  • Sonic a screwdriver
  • Make psychic paper
  • Find light grey hightops
  • Find closer match for tie
  • Maintain my amazing haircut


Gilgamesh - Fate/Zero Casual Wine-Drinking Jerk Edition - for my wife

  • Find snakeskin pants
  • Find white v-neck shirt
  • Find jewelry
  • Buy and style wig
  • Drink an entire bottle of red wine so I can fill it with cranberry juice during the convention

Crossed some stuff of my yet-again revised to-do list...

Lara Croft:

- Bought ammo pouches for belt
- Bought walkie talkie for belt
- Bought new cargo pants since the last pair I ordered were too small
- Bought new cami because I didn't like how I ripped up my old one
- Bought white padded sports bra to use instead of a second cami to avoid bulk
- Bought more makeup, including Ben Nye Bronzing Body tint to get a bit of a tan
- Bought climbing axe prop
- Styled wig further
- Bought wefts, curved needles, etc., for wefting and further styling the wig

Noooooow, here's what I need to do:

- Weather ammo pouches
- Weather pants
- Weather cami/sports bra
- Makeup test
- Finish wig
- Weather walkie talkie
- Buy and weather yellow/black G-Shock watch

I'm considering cosplaying young Mikasa instead of Charlotte as Charlotte's wig is going to be HUGE and I need to save space for things I'll be bringing back with me...

- Buy/style wig
- Make/buy scarf

As for Mugi, I think everything is good on that end.

Decided yesterday that I'm going to do a Shirahoshi Hime cosplay instead of Mikasa this year. I already bought the wig and wefts and such, and my commissioner FantasyNinja will be working on the costume for me. I'm very excited!

Anyway, to do:

Buy wire and packaging tape
Use the wire/tape and spare wefts to create Shirahoshi's hair loopies
Attach hair loopies to wig
Style wig
Make golden fish head piece
Pay commissioner when quote is finished
Practice makeup

What my to-do lists look like right now. Today was a frantic run to my town's other, bigger JoAnn's (where they had white fur by the truckload...stupid JoAnn's down the street telling me it's out of season!) and the Salvation Army. I still have a crap-ton to do for Boogiepop--not so much big things as a lot of little details--and today I figured out I'll need a lot more fabric than I thought I'd need for her cape/hat. :( Luckily JoAnn's was giving out 50% coupons for next week. Woo! :D

I'm dropping my Naho cosplay to help save a bit of money. For my Sonia cosplay, I got the resin mold, resin dye, bezel, and shoes (which I'm waiting to arrive). And for my Phi cosplay, I just got the flower headpiece. I searched through my jewelry and found a bracelet that works for Sonia as well. I did research and found the pattern I need for Phi's jacket, the wig and braid accessory I want for Sonia (but I gotta wait for Arda to restock them), and a tutorial to make Yukari's evoker.

This upcoming week, I plan to make my S.E.E.S. arm band, finish Phi's skirt, and get the brooch and emblems done for Sonia. Maybe even start on the evoker. If I have time to go to Joann Fabrics, I hope to get my Phi jacket pattern, belt buckles, a new zipper for my Yukari skirt, and material for remaking Yukari's choker.

- Make S.E.E.S. arm band
- Remake choker
- Get a longer zipper for the new skirt

Phi
- Buy a pattern for the jacket

- Add black layer to the skirt

- Buy glasses

Sonia
- Buy a wig and braid piece
- Add jewels to the hair bow
- Add the emblems on the bow and dress
- Make resin jewel for brooch
- Get over the knee black socks and modify them
- Buy a white belt

Getting closer! Ordered my Sonia wig, finished Phi's skirt, and made Sonia's jewel. I also found some black thigh high socks, but they have a texture to them and they're really cute. I don't wanna modify them since they were a little pricey and they're good for everyday wear, so I'm gonna keep looking. If I can't manage to find another pair that's cheap and I can modify easily, I'll settle for being slightly inaccurate with these socks.

Is there a specific kind of fabric you're looking for? And I know how that goes. Took me 2 weeks to find the right Fabric for my Chopper outfit =3
