Hello again. (Posted 1st September 2013)
I know I shouldn't still be doing this but I'm just gonna say here as I'm too nervous on my social networking sites.
Okay, so the con was yesterday (I only went for one day). I'm not gonna blather about how great it was and how great everyone's Cosplays were, I'll just talk about mine.
So yep, this is it. One day I'll look back and laugh at what a dork I am but then future me will realise I probably didn't improve with time. Welp, my writing tenses just failed so yeah Mina, signing off, until the next Cosplay which will be in about two months.
How I made my Aradia horns. (Posted 30th August 2013)
As promised to the ghosts that visit my account here it is: Mina's guide as to how to make Aradia horns! The name may not be catchy but one day I'll be doing something important and someone will bring up my teenage years and I'll not let it be said that I didn't at least try.
Step 1) Okay so cut a template for the shape out of cardboard.
Then I guess you attach them to a head band and you're ready to go. Aside from the rest of the outfit but whatever. Go forth, my children and Cosplay.
Hmmm... (Posted 30th August 2013)
Oh yeah! On my last journal I forgot to say the reason I now need to paint the symbol on is because the t shirt transfer was for a white top.
Status report: The chicken isn't burnt.
EDIT: Goddamnit, I've forgotten to say twice now that the contacts have arrived after a little thing happening at the postage office but yep they're here too.
Wow the Con's tomorrow gosh (Posted 30th August 2013)
Howdy non-existent strangers! So naturally, I'm way behind on my cosplay, Jesse's basically done hers and here I am knee deep in paint and glue. So process:
Horns - they are finally almost finished. I've procrastinated so they were started yesterday. I'll do a step by step thing as to how I made them in my next journal entry thing in about ten to twenty minutes. Right now I'm try to watch a chicken cook because I was given the important task of making sure my house doesn't burn down.
Yeah, quite a bit to do but I'll do it. This is like the most unprofessional journal not sorry. Anyway, adios I can smell burning chicken.
Okaaaaay (Posted 20th August 2013)
Only 11 days to go, uh oh. I've bought some more stuff:
Socks - They have three stripes which is a problem, they'll take some careful editing to make them look natural.
I just need to get this skirt done, possibly buy some shoes, buy a black shirt and MAKE THESE GODDAMN HORNS. I'm nervous about those but my stepdad used to do a lot of modelling (I mean making things not posing for a camera) so he said he'll help me tonight. My mum said she'll help with the skirt and as for the shirt, well there's the tansfer but we don't have a good printer. My backup plan is to go to one of those over priced T-Shirt places.
That's all I have to say for now so I'll keep you non-existent people who care posted.
Ok, I'd better start posting here. (Posted 14th August 2013)
Right so I've found some cheap white mesh contacts. I need prescription ones because well, my eyesight is rubbish. So there are cheap ones on honeycolor.com which you can spend extra to get fast delivery on which, since the con's in 17 days, I will need. Just need to convince my mum to order them.
