|....I lose. I have succumbed to the never ending cosplay abyss that is HOMESTUCK COSPLAY AAAH.|
Rose was my favorite kid for a long time, and I adore her to pieces, but I am falling for Jade. And her God Tier 'jams are SO CUTE I WANT.
Anyhow, I offer two warnings:
1: I am going to make a terrible Jade, but I don't care because I love her too much
2: This is but one of around 12 homestuck cosplays I have planned. Prepare for the onslaught of 'em.

trouble in the hood (Posted 15th March 2013)
So I was doing alright with my hood but then something happened and I was dumb and stuff went wrong. Basically, I made the distance between the holes for the ears really short and it made it look like I was wearing underwear on my head or something because you could see so much of the wig between were the ears and the middle of the hood when I put it on.
ALAS. I think I am going to go through making it even though I don't think it'll look good anymore, but I'll try anyhow and see where it gets me. Thankfully I'm going home very soon and I shooooould be able to snag a quick trip to the fabric shop and get enough to make a BRAND NEW HOOD!! I will hopefully have learned from my mistakes and make the new one pretty good.
Also the amount of frustration and silent cursing this has put me through means I'll probably bring Jade to Ayacon. Whoop!
ears done! (Posted 8th March 2013)
There are some issues with them, like they're pretty big, one's a bit taller than the other and I'm having trouble putting them on the wig by myself (I did double check they could work before adding the fur though!) but I'm satisfied!
*extinguishes skirt fire* (Posted 8th February 2013)
I seamripped ALL of the elastic and one side of the skirt to try to make all the folds even. It worked! So noooow...I'm back to where I was with the skirt before I took it apart, but it looks a lot better and tidier. Amazing what difference a cool head and proper planning can make, that went really smoothly~
Should be starting the ears soon so that I can finish up the hood!
Wow I've done tons since the last entry (Posted 7th January 2013)
I've got my shirt 80% done, my hood 50% done and my materials for the ears (softest fur ever <3)

has been gotten" Except for the ears, because somehow the fabric store I go to doesn't have white fur on Christmas. What.
