Update | 06

It’s been awhile since my last post, but AX is really close & i’ve been working. I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but my computer’s motherboard pretty much broke, so I don’t have daily computer access. [ Which is good in a way because I can be more focused on cosplay. ] But that means it’ll be a little harder to post every now and then. This is why I’m putting the Plan of the Week on hold for now until after I finish my cosplays/AnimeExpo. In other words, I will be on a mini hiatus for about 2-3 weeks. I will definitely post photos from AnimeExpo up and there will be a introduction video for AnimeExpo the day before our flight. I’ll see you guys soon!


Goal of the Month 01 & 02 | Update 01

Haha, I totally forgot about the goal of the month for May. I’ve been really busy trying to get cosplays together. There’s about 23 more days until I have to finish and board the flight to California for AnimeExpo.

So, was the very first goal of the month completed? Sadly, no, it was not. To remind you guys, the goal of the month for May was to..

Finish Kay Faraday’s Costume & Props!

So, I did not finish Kay yet, but the only thing remaining is to make her tabi socks and boots. I’ll make them this week, actually, so that will be done for if all goes according to plan. Since it’s June now, we have a new goal of the month! For June’s goal of the month, it is to..

Wrap up all cosplays for AnimeExpo!

This is the most reasonable goal there is, since AnimeExpo is the end of June. I am definitely completing this goal, and since my classes end next week, I’ll have more time at home to finish cosplays!

I wish everyone good luck on finishing their cosplays for AnimeExpo as well!

Goal of the Month | 01

I’ve started a new ‘topic’ for my blog. Inspired from the ‘Plan of the Week’ [ Which I am not doing this week because I don’t plan on doing much this week], here is ‘Goal of the Month’!

It’s pretty much what it sounds like; I’ll post this topic once a month, stating my goal for the month. So here is the very first Goal of the Month!

Finish Kay’s costume and props

I really hope I accomplish this goal because AnimeExpo is in two months. I still need to do VN02 as well, and I know the armor is going to take a week or two.

Announcement | 01

Two days ago, I received some very exciting news. It’s still not completely registered in my head, but i’m going to share my news.

I am 100% going to AnimeExpo ’10 with IchigoChu!

The news was so surprising and made me so happy that I cried. It may not be a big deal for many of you, but this has a lot of sentimental value for me. I’m not going to go into detail about this, since it’ll end up being a long post & I’m working on Miku at the moment.

However, I believe the flight is right after my school year ends. Yeah, cutting it close, I know.

Update | 03

I worked on the VN02 headphones, like I said I would in my last update post. On the first day [ Friday ], I worked from 3 PM to 3 AM haha.. I finished the painting job on Saturday for the base of the headphones, and now all that needs to be done is modify the headphones i’m using. I have a pretty good idea on how to do that, so it should go well. I also got another thing done today regarding cosplay! I worked on the VN02 patterns, and I actually got them all cut out in one day. That is, only the dress portion. I still need to make a pattern for the boots and arm warmers. The arm warmers won’t be a big deal, but the last time I made boots, it didn’t come out that well… I’ll have to look up the tutorials on how to make those again since the last time I made them was 3 years ago.

I’m not sure what I’m going to work on next. Let me check my schedule list for a second, haha.. Okay, so I’ll probably be making the key and brooch for Kay’s cosplay next.

Expect a huge image post/video post around Spring Break. That’s when i’ll be able to get everything organized and have some extra time to update. IchigoMiso will also be filming for Gekokujou Part 2 in the very beginning of Spring Break, so there will definitely be a new video posted up during that time.

Update | 02

I have to be honest. I’ve only finished one thing on my schedule list so far.. I’m kind of in the weeds now because it’s the middle of March now, and I still have a shitload of things to do. I keep putting off other things to do on my list because I’ve been really tired and I’m trying to catch up on school work as well. It also doesn’t help that Pokemon Heart Gold & Soul Silver came out on Sunday and I’ve been playing Soul Silver non-stop.. [ I’ll post about that sometime this week. ] I’m pretty sure that prop working will continue into April, which is costume making month for me. I have a half day this Friday, so I’ll work on VN02 headphones during that time..

I’m kind of angry that I won’t be able to order my VN02 wig until the end of March, and it takes a month to receive the wig from the buyer I’m getting it from. So that completely puts that wig work in late April/early May.. But there’s no other time I can buy it because I’ve planned out my finances for all of the cosplays I’m doing for AX, and that’s the only time I can buy the wig.. I’m so glad I don’t need to buy a Luce wig online. I’ll be buying it from my local wig store, and I already have an extra pack of black extensions I bought for Kay leftover, so I can use that for Luce’s ponytail. I just hope everything is done by AX, because I have no idea what I’ll do if I don’t have them finished. [ I don’t have a back-up plan.. ]

Also, I have no idea if I should buy contacts or not, because if I do, that throws my financial plan into whack and, then depending on whether I buy it from an online buyer or the Elizabeth Mall, [ And I have no idea if they have them in stock or they have to order out first.. ] I have to plan the time that it takes for them to get the contacts from the company, then ship them out, which means I should really find out soon because it takes approx. 2-3 weeks for a batch to fill up, then an extra 1 – 2 weeks to get your order.. If anything, I won’t get the contacts.. Actually, maybe one pair for Miku because I plan on cosplaying her for a while. The contacts that I would need are for Miku, VN02, & Luce. [ Turquoise, Green, & Purple. ] I have a feeling that I’ll just buy a pair for Miku to save money.
