I absolutely love cosplay!! I generally only crossplay though :)
To begin with my friend got me into the whole cosplay scene after she went to Midlands mcm expo she told me about it and all the pretty costumes. After that I just decided I had to join in :P I've always loved dressing up so it's the perfect excuse to spend most of my time working on costumes >:]
Me and a group of friends (The Ubernoobrigade) did a group Gravitation cosplay in October mcm expo in London, performed our very first skit and won a prize for it as best recieved by the audience :D we were all totally over the moon ^^

Okay this is taking way longer than it should simply because I keep putting parts off..
If I actually sit down and just sew it could be finished in a day XD
ahh fail

so next on the plan is to do the collar.. which requires ironing, also gotta finish the under robe thing.. hemming the sleeves the right lengths n shiz :P
Wig's done though! yay!! and I have my contacts.. so that cool..
I'm hoping to get the main kimono done this evening.. and cut out all the parts for the jacket too.. and the obi/belt which i don't know how long it should beeee.. should lookt hat up.
Pointless journal is pointless.. just basically saying I'm being lazy but hopefully I'll get these parts done.. maybe..

Well! sadly i made the sleeves too narrow so they won't fit on the sewing machine arm.... so now i have to hand sew on the zip parts for the arms
oh dear
that's approx 4m of hand sewing
damn long sleeves!!
oh well i currently have nearly finished one arm.. with under 2 weeks to go
looks like i won't get the mask part done after all... hmmm since i do have an exma the day before expo - gotta reviiiiise (which i should be doing now)
oh wells.
it's only a minor part. must remember to sew the straps onto the hood tho o.O
back to revision!

Well.. it's nearly finished now but I am starting to panic.. the ears are not all done yet and i think the feet need some more glueing :/
If I do not glue them the bottoms shall fall off as I walk around D:
Hopefully I should get that finished tonight though.. and then to leeds on the morrow.

My daughter/friend steff is sat next to me whining about her broken email and not being able to get on cosplay island.. since she is a n00b. :) but i still love her
