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!

Plan of the Week | 09

Another week has started.

  • Start Kay’s tabi socks
  • Start Kay’s tabi boots.
  • Add belt straps onto Kay’s skirt
  • Sew snaps onto Kay’s skirt
  • Make clasps for Kay’s bag
  • Finish painting broach
  • Start Kay’s Key
  • By the way, I am feeling much, much better & I’m ready to start finishing up cosplays and starting VN02! Only about 4 weeks to go!

    Goal of the Week 08 | Update

    It’s the end of the week, and let me just say this. I feel like there aren’t enough hours in a day anymore. I used to be fine with how long days went, but now it seems like time is rushing by so fast. When I look at the time, it’s 10 PM when I think it should have been 7 PM. School is also ending in 14 days. It feels like just yesterday, I entered my new school. Not that I’m sad about this school year ending or anything

  • Finish Kay’s Vest.
  • Start Kay’s Skirt.
  • Paint white details on vest.
  • Start Scarf.
  • Start broach.
  • I actually did a lot of productive things this week! I finished Kay’s vest [ Which includes white details ] and scarf. I’m going to try and finish her skirt right now, and after i’m going to cut of the buckle of a belt I bought from a 99 cent store [ Didn’t cost 99 cents though.. ] and paint it gold, since it’s silver. Then I’m gonna start making her belt bag! I’m a bit nervous about the bag because it’s my very first time making a pattern entirely by myself, without any direction whatsoever. Usually, my mom makes the patterns for my cosplays, so I’m hoping I’ve studied enough to make this bag right. Something that is irking me though is the bag clips that she has. I can’t find them anywhere.. I’m thinking of using those clips that they use for sock garters as a substitute.

    Plan of the Week | 08

    Here it is!

  • Finish Kay’s Vest.
  • Start Kay’s Skirt.
  • Paint white details on vest.
  • Start Scarf.
  • Start broach.
  • Once again, everything this week is Kay related. I managed to finish the red shirt this week, so i’m hoping I can finish the rest of her major clothes.

    Plan of the Week 07 | Update

    Saturday is here!

  • Start cutting out Kay’s fabric.
  • Start sewing Kay’s clothes.
  • Start any one of Kay’s props. [ Most likely the key ]
  • Sketch out the white designs on Kay’s vest.
  • So, most of the goals were completed except for starting one of Kay’s props. I’ll try to do that next week. I actually did some other Kay related things this week as well. Today, I went to Chinatown with Ichigo to grab some matching green contacts for Kay, which can double up as contacts for my VN02 cosplay! Killing two birds with one stone, like my friend mentioned when I asked her if I should get them. I also grabbed matching wigs for Kay. A note about that, since you guys might have seen my Kay wig already. That did not work well on me because I have a pretty big head. So when I put it on, there was no way that I could get it on my head right, so I have to buy a base wig and make a ponytail clip on for that. It’s a little disappointing, but you have to do what you have to do.

    Plan of the Week | 07

    First off, Happy Mothers Day! I hope you guys have a good one.

    Now for the plan of the week!

  • Start cutting out Kay’s fabric.
  • Start sewing Kay’s clothes.
  • Start any one of Kay’s props. [ Most likely the key ]
  • Sketch out the white designs on Kay’s vest.
  • So, as you can see, all of the goals are for Kay Faraday’s costume. I really hope to finish it in two weeks so I can start VN02.

    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.
