apron missing

The apron is still missing, lalala~
I didn't get to start on the wig, the beads I bought ended up being a size too small.
So, I started a bit on the apron, but I haven't much of an idea how to make it work. Anyway, it looks actually good when put together, I did not sew through the fold, but I don't really feel like, it all is hidden by the obi.

Otome Youkai Obi+Bibbon

Finally I'm done with this X___X' The ribbon is heavy, it is constructed out of 7 different parts fixed together by hand. Otherwise that in this picture it looks uneven I'm pretty content I guess. Maybe I'll destroy some of my white socks later today~
Otherwise I'll start working on the wig. At least the pony for today.
P.S. I now see that I did manage to mirror-image the upper part, but I can't fix it any more.

Menma is done

Yup, I finished Menma. I don't have any pictures with make-up+wig, but I have Madeleine wearing the dress. I'm not entirely sure about the frills around the sleeve part, but oh well. I am also working on the obi for Hozuki. Its fabric pulled over fleece. What I am currently wondering about though is how I dot he peachy-pink part above the 'belt'. As well as how the heck I'm going to bind the white apron...? ANY ideas, guys? Cause my brain keeps hurting when I try to think of the implications of how it is drawn and how the kimono is actually worn.
I still need to redo the fold though, but I want to record a song today, so we'll see.

Menma progress

...please ignore the shining dark purple panties...
This is how far I've gotten with my Menma cosplay. I'll finally be able to sew it through today... if I'll be able to tell where which frill part is at the bottom. As you know I do not put needles in my costumes, I pre-sew roughly by hand... which is a pain to remove later on, but whatever XD
Anyway, I posted this just because Kumo wanted to see it >D

yo~ I though I should write about how my Nipponcon went, since I never did it. Actually despite being small and having a huge deficit in helpers it was pretty nice. I might complain while doing something stressful, but I always look back at such things, even exams, with a smile in the end.

The picture to the left was taken by Rose ( when I was helping out for the cosplay contest, since there was enough stress with other things and no one had time for it. The worst part was after getting some other people to be judges with me, we found out that we had only two participants, so I went to chase for some. In the end it was fun. My favourite was the GUMI cosplayer who did a dance to Matryoshka so perfectly that I had goosebumps *w* Girl, you deserved to be one of the winners. I think the 3 of us gave her the max points in performance part. By the way, the other two judges were really amazing Balthier and Fran cosplayers! I forgot to take a picture though UU'
I also liked the location~
My performance was.... well.... without high pitches ~___~" and I was already so tired after running around for cosplay contest and it was pretty hot and damp I was barely moving on the stage ^^' I intended to give a performance full of energy not a half-dead one... lol, oh well.
I'm still waiting for the videos to arrive, but if I'm going to upload anything of that disaster(if I'm allowed to) then it's going to be "I wish..." and "Cutey Honey" they sound well enough even though I lost my high pitch part of voice for being ill.
What made me very happy through the entire convention were all the people who complemented my Mami costume *___* I was so happy that I stressed with my mom all over it~
I wasn't there to watch DCM since I was so upset after my performance, I got the cam from Maz and went to a quiet corner and watched it, I really wanted to know how badly I messed up. Well, except for the already mentioned part it wasn't half that bad. I calmed down a little. You know, it sucks that you lose your voice at a convention that actually invited and paid your train tickets Q___Q'

I hope I didn't annoy the cafe maids that much with always barging in and making myself tea ^^'

I think that's it.
