Comment on this entry to be added.

I've been meaning to do this for a while now, and since almost all of my entries are FL-locked any way this doesn't make much of a difference. But I'd like to keep this journal to people I know rather well or people I've met in person. If I don't add you back don't take it personally but my entries have switched from cosplay babble to personal things over the past year and that's why this has come about.

Oh hay this post is public. Wow.

Hey guys! I haven't been around too much as of late but I assure you it's because I'm so busy I'm surprised I'm sleeping! Ha ha ha.

Any who I just wanted to let any one who might be interested (which is probably no one lol) that I am selling some of my costumes and stuff.

Buy my book costumes.

Cooler stuff that is more expensive. Aka my eBay account.

If anybody knows any friends or fellow cosplayers who would be interested (I know some of you guys have big FLs!) please don't hesitate to say something. I am in dire need of both the space and the money so the more crap that I get out of my tiny apartment the better.

I'll be updating this page (yuuuuck cos.com) frequently and hopefully doing a fabricswaps post or two this week. But all and any promotion I can get for this stuff would be awesome.

I now conclude this useless spam to continue sewing like a crazy person!

Hey guys minor friends cut to weed out inactive accounts and a few people I don't feel terribly close to anymore. I also added a few friends as well. If you think I cut you and you want to be added back just let me know and we can chat about it.

It's nothing personal!

A) My ruffle foot is on it's way. Be prepared for excitement and overall yays when it arrives in a few days time. (For anyone who cares I got a Janome 660 all purpose ruffle and pleating foot for $18.99 including shipping as compared to $69.99 without shipping which is the retail price. Strike!)

B) D. Gray-man is supposedly coming off hiatus in August with a new 50 page chapter. Wut. Now if only CLAMP could get their ass in gear and finish Tsubasa and Holic . . .

C) Sewing party this weekend maybe? I do hope so.

D) I want more icons . . . I might actually cave and buy some more. Shit.

E) That is all. Designers, carry on.

Mark posted a few pictures of my knitwear term garment. I look pretty silly / adorable, but the color is really nice. So what did I do, I made an icon. DERP.

I'm tired and antsy and want to work on cosplay but on the other hand I'm tired and have a lot of homework. Ahmmm.

Beth am I a horrible person if I make this version of Tiara instead? I'm just not sure I want to be a big red vinyl hooker and I'm having a really hard time finding a wig color I like that I can get massive amounts of extensions in that also will work well with red vinyl. I really want to do Shamanic Princess with you this summer, but less . . . vinyl with exposed midriff.

Tiara, the not quite hooker.Collapse )

On a more fun note, I've been working on my 'Zelda music everyone can appreciate' play list. I'm torn between not putting enough of the actual soundtracks on it, but also keeping it interesting since I know I'm a huge fucking nerd who listens to game music like it's real music. LOL ME.

I'm testing the play list now to see if it plays ok. Hmmmm needs more nerdyness.

Oh I'm home. It's lovely. Today I am going through all of my fabric, costumes, and wigs that got packed up and moved with my 'rents. Also mailing my package to England, which means a trip into town. Oh no! It's oh so crowded there, with you know, all 5 people we might run into.

Dad is currently outside playing with the dogs. I guess they don't want to play really. It's pretty lol in my opinion.

I missed my home. : )

Today was  a weird day, as it turns out pretty much nobody sells cotton in the garment district. Every store has tons of satin, charmeuse, silk, and every kind of polyester ever. It's so frustrating, why can't I find honest to god crayola green in a basic cotton fabric? Why? After going to what felt like every store in the garment district we finally found something. I didn't get it, but after comparing the swatch to my reference picture it at home turns out to be a good color. I'm not crazy about the texture but the drape is amazing, so I'm gonna go back and get it. Either tomorrow or Friday.

Oh CLAMP, you guys are a pain in my ass.

But I got home to find out that the Cyperous wig got here today from Canada (someone was selling on on Cos.com, so we bought it cause we are hookers). IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL. I just want to hug and love it forever and ever and roll around in how fantastic it is. So soft, so gorgeous, so lusterous. It's a beautiful ashe blond color, similar to my Ilia wig but more blond and less dusty. It has thick, full bangs and only needs a few wispies razored in place to give it a more Deedlit look.

: D

Dear phone,

WTF. Why die now, why so randomly? WHY.

No love,
Carly

Seriously I have the feeling I am going to lose everybody's number and some of them will be retardedly hard to replace. Fffffffffffffffffffffffffff. I'll let you all know if I need to suddenly get everyone's number again.
