Hey world!!! So now I'm finally all settled back into school. I transferred to a college in Philly, so yeah, here I am now. It's really pretty around here, and I lucked out and made a cosplayer friend who coincidentally lives down the hall from me, and has a sewing machine. So because I am super depressed I have none of my materials and stuff at my disposal, she and her roomie are going to NYCC next month, and I am happily cosplay deprived and helping make her Cassandra (Soul Calibur) cosplay happen!
And I'm also psyching myself for next year, since I won't be able to make my normal cons anymore, I am saving for Otakon again, and am trying to get people to do a large Last Story group with me
Ever since I preordered it, I wanted to cosplay from it, but since I don't think I'll have the money to do an elaborate Mirania, I'm gonna do Yurick because he is such a cutie and I love him even though he is a wimp <3 So I'm going to gradually make him, and focus on details and stuff...I already had Jess convinced but she finally settled on General Asthar (She was stuck between all the beautiful men, primarily Therius), but he has a lot of sewing which she isn't used to, so I really look forward to seeing her sewing skills improve!! She's already called me to confirm colors (I swear she is colorblind...) and to tell me she picked up fabric she thinks would be good for Yurick's jacket!! I'm so excited to start, and have been researching fabric stores in my area--we are in the suburbs and everything is kinda far, but we are going to try and take the train and stuff this weekend hopefully
I'll work so hard making it purdy since I'll be cosplay deprived.... HOWEVER, since where I am is now like 3 hours away from Katsu, if I really am stingy with my money, I might be able to make it down a day or two if my friend is interested!! Or maybe even take a bus, since it's close by in comparison to NH. So yeah, I am pretty happy, there are wig stores like in the mall (I was like GET OUT!!!???) so all I need are some good fabric stores and I will be a happy camper!! I felt like we had our own ghetto-styled sweat shop in my dorm room the other day, cuz my friend has a really cute old style sewing machine and my room is really old and awful and humid---we aren't allowed A/C cuz the building is like ancient, and it's right above the cafeteria so whenever I open my doors it looks like something caught on fire LOL
Hope everyone else is having fun <3
