So I've been away from this corner of the internet (tumblr, you are a cruel and demanding mistress.) but this is still the best place to log costume progress and to-do lists, so here I am.

I remastered Benkei for Anime Matsuri in March/April this year, and my skit (with Pas's Nozomi) took Best in Show. Pretty fucking incredible, seriously. They still haven't gotten us our prize money at this time, which is a bit shitty.

Anyway, after that I actually worked hard on Eveline Gurerra, The Corsair from Assassin's Creed: Revelations multiplayer. I have loved her design for years, and the costume pulled together in time for Denver Comic Con, and was then updated for the Colorado Rennaisance Festival in Larkspur.

In between all my Eveline love, I started on my competition piece for NDK and my friendship piece for PAX: Clow Reed (an original version to matck Mik's Yuuko) and Nix (from inFamous 2, to hang with Kat's Kuo)

Also, I may have watched 1.5 seasons of Game of Thrones and 3.25 sessons of Leverage while working on these things.

Things I was supposed to do after work today:
-start mother's day present
-set up vacuum with tiny hose to clean out computer fan

Things I did today:
-caught up on Glee
-fused a small sheet of blue/white angelina, tested opacity and adhesion on the suiting, and started cutting out my multiplayer emblem
-updated my player model in AC:R to match the costume I'm making (no sleeves
-stared at Eveline's model for long enough that her proportions really started to bug me
-finalized plans for embellishment on Eveline's coat (soutache and paint for shoulders, gold binding, some rick rack or more paint for the bottom and rear hems AND pants embellishment)
-Spent an hour with mom discussing options for the remaining pieces of the costume
-played an hour of AC:R multiplayer
-interfaced back-shoulder area on coat
-interfaced and assembled collar for coat... may have to redo this anyway
-chalked in the first lines (to be done in soutache braid) on the shoulders and back of the coat

Summary... finally actually making progress on Eveline, but only because there are other things I should be doing instead. >.>

For Tomorrow:
-pick up 7 1-2" gold buttons (or 5 for front and 2 larger for back)
-look for other trim/cording for button loops
-check color match on gold rick rack and/or gold fabric paints.

Woken up today to learn that the main events of PAXEast are live streaming, which means that my weekend off isn't nearly so wasted, because I can see the PA panels and got to see the RoosterTeeth panel this morning!

Since then I have finished my first glovelet/fingerless mitten-thing with worsted weight yarn and the cuff modifications that I wanted and started the left hand. (My increases above the ribbing worked perfectly and now the cuff fits and stays put on me. Kris didn't want the fitted cuff, but I hae her yarn to start with next.

I also picked my next cosplay project and printed some reference. I'm going with The Corsair (Eveline Guerra) from AC:R multiplayer. I love her look, and my hair will work whether I cut it off or not. I have most of the fabric and patterns that I can modify the crap out of as needed, so I'm excited. This can also double as a pirate costume if I get the hat and ever need to attend a pirate party or Speak Like A Pirate Day event again. Also, she's my favorite.

I also also pushed through a bunch more recordings for the Arashi Roadtrip AU and am editing them now. Putting together the two collections (one in chronological/timeline order and one in posting order is going to be such a mind trip. I think I read in posting order first, which is easier to get into because you start with two and then three of the boys together already and traveling. Starting chronologically is slower, but you get the background story. I think I prefer posting order, but it's much harder to follow the story. Anyway, funtimes.

So. Fuck. It's 4 AM and since I'm clearly not sleeping, here's where the ranting about why I'm not sleeping goes.
1) Dishes. I am hungry. But when I cook, I wash my dishes immediately. this is currently not possible because the sink is full of the dishes and J and R used to eat the last batch of food I cooked. I only got one serving, and then when I went to take leftovers to work, all the rice had been eaten. Then after today when I would have made more rice, the rest of the hayashi was gone too. Which is fine, I guess, except that I'm the one who dropped $100 the last time we went shopping, and $25 the time before that, and $80 last month, but I digress. The hunger is not really why I'm not sleeping, that's just the excuse.
The real reason is:
2) World Cosplay Summit qualifying rounds for 2013 are being announced... and NDK2012 is hosting one of them. Babbling and Depression Ensues )

This is all coming out because I had to spend all my money on car insurance this morning and so can't actually go to SakuraCon even though I requested the weekend off. So now I have four days when I'd love to be relaxing or sewing or anything, and instead I have a room with no work space, and lots of time to stare at it.
I own so many things and so few of them are important at all... but I still can't let go. I feel incredibly isolated and despondent in my own house, and I just don't know what to do anymore.
setra: (Default)
Don't even know what to do with myself this weekend. For once, all I'm required to do is keep myself entertained.

Started the UK version of The Office last night. A bit painful in that awkward embarassed-for-other-people way, but then there's Martin Freeman saying "cock" or dancing in most episodes to make up for the unfortunate reminders of what a shitty manager I actually am.
And then I started "The Last Enemy", which in thirty minutes has had Benedict Cumberbatch being both naked and a bit OCD. And MAKING OUT WITH GIRLS. Well, a girl. Still. Turns out he's also a genius researcher thing, and that it's a big brother freaky future thing.

I should be able to finish the Twilight Sparkle quilt tomorrow (today) and then I can start on whatever I want. I'm thinking some Donna Noble bits in case I make it down to Sakura to see Lor-Doctor.

Also, knitting. I took Kid's Knitting 101 from my favorite teacher the other week, and now am actually enjoying knitting. Just playing with straight knits and purls so far, but liking it quite a lot! Works well while listening to podcasts and Sherlock Holmes stories.

And god damn, but I love Benedict Cumberbatch. Just going to bask in that for a while. I'm thinking Sherlock marathon this weekend before ME3 comes out and any chance of using the TV is lost forever.

This whole post was inspired by the PAX 2009 and PAX 2011 episodes of PATV. Particularly Jerry's description of of PAX as a con that needed to exist and didn't before they made it.

So Glee. I watched the first two discs of the first season tonight.

It's not Dr. Who. It's not Torchwood. It doesn't make me forget everything in the world or want to run away on an adventure, and there isn't the intese rush of fangirlish energy that I get every time The Doctor says 'fantastic' or Jack grins at his team.

But Glee has characters that I care about against all my original expectations. It has amazing music and it moves me. And that is definitely worth continuing to watch. Even before Darren Criss.

It really really makes me miss karaoke though. That 3 hours a week made life so so much better.

In other news, I have a white linen hood sitting on my sewing machine. For competition? Maybe. For awesome? I certainly hope so.

I think this means that I really need to stop quilting and clean up my sewing area to get going on costumes. Ack.

I may or may not have spent the last three hours in photoshop working on a texture and gradient set for damnned Shitenhouji jersies. Now to test to see how the Yudu handles it and then start the epic search for a yellow knit that Jess and I can actually agree on.

For anyone wondering what I'm going on about...
Take a look at this team's uniforms. See that lovely leafy green texture pattern? I'm trying to screen print it onto plain fabric. Yes I may have lost my mind.

[profile] ladyofthegate found me a potential Shiraishi wig locally: at Display & Costume. (Which means another chance to visit Pacific fabrics. ^_^ I only wish that their clearance outlet was closer than Seattle. >.>)

Also, there are work things. But I have Friday off and we get to see Chris, so that worry can wait for another day.

It should also be noted that I got my second ear piercing on... monday evening I think. So soon I shall be able to show off more than one set of earrings at once. ^___^

Ten years ago, on a much smaller and more insular internet, I found a website for a little gathering called 'YaoiCon'. I was still two years and a month too young to attend, being only 15 with a birthday coming up in September.

Until now, the only time I've attended the event was in 2005, to see mangaka Higuri You and Kazuma Kodaka. This year is YCon's tenth anniversary. This year I get to go again, to see seiyuu Kiuchi Hidenobu and Okiayu Ryoutarou, as well as the awesome author Lynn Flewelling ([profile] otterdance ).

Since YCon is usually around Halloween, a holiday which I can almost never take off in my industry, this may be the last time I get a chance to attend for a while. Also, Okiayu Ryoutarou. I mean... I would travel almost anywhere in the world to meet this man in person. So. Yeah.

Since it worked pretty well for AO, here's my list of stuff to get done before the con:

To Be Continued after some sleep. Overnights are rather tiring.

[Random Note: Somehow, even before this con, [profile] tinfoil_starz was only two degrees of LJ seperation away from me, because her mutual friend [profile] isogashii05 is friends with [personal profile] baranoneko. How or why, I could not tell you, but damn it is a tiny tiny internet, isn't it? XD]
setra: (Default)
I'm considering so many options right now that I felt like a list would be a good idea:

-Hisui from Haruka 2 - for Jess, to go with Akram. Though looking at him, we'd have to work on finding a reasonable way to open bind, he's got a lot of exposed chest.

-Veruna-ouji and Might from the ening of Silver Chaos: only four reference pics.

-Atsumori, Rizuvaan, Full Masaomi, Full Tomomori - all from Haruka 3. You know, to complete the set. >.>
6/11 - Tomomori keeps making me think... and yet I am really still not 100% certain of how I want it to work. Masaomi has similar concerns.

-Rikkai or other prince of tennis uniforms... because I love them all so much.

-Various Apocripha/0 costume repairs

-Queen's Horse or other Skalan garb from Nightrunner or the Tamir Trilogy. I remember absolutely loving some of the descriptions of Tamir's dresses in the end of 'The Oracle's Queen'.
6/10 - searched for more detial, but couldn't find it... may end up working from memory anyway. I really like the idea.

- Reapers from TWEWY: Kariya or Minamimoto for Jess, Tenho or BJ for me... need to actually purchase a pin-making machine. ;_; I also have Uzuki and/or the iron maiden ideas, but all would be dramatically modified from canon.

-Final Fantasy 13... um.... people. I still haven't really considered.

-Scheizel or Kannon from Geass... entirely because of this image.


**ETA - Decisions-ish (6/11)**
Y-Con (if financially plausible):
-Hyoutei Uniforms - I just need to find my good Yuushi wig and replace Gakuto's pants.
-Shitenhouji Uniforms ([profile] tinfoil_starz, if you know what fabrics you two used for your uniforms... and if you're wearing them at YCon... we'd like to match.)
-Rikkai Uniforms? Assuming my madness persists and I have time before then to play with my Yudu.

NEW-Angel's Feather - Sho and Kai probably. Possibilities of Ousaka and Anri or maybe Sena and Shion. Many thoughts.


Also, OMG, I don't ever have to update my costume checklist from before the con, ever again! Whee~!
setra: (Default)
Finished the last overnight for the week. Only two more days of work before the con. Ohgod,shootmenow.
-assemble and hem last Akram kimono
-find more podfic (or record it myself) in order to continue preserving sanity
-help with the Julie/Kay/Mik apartment move (assuming continued consciousness)
-clean iron and pack up costumes for friday
-finish trimming and styling Darlton wig
-find shoe repair options for my boots
-hook up with Cally to procure milly wig
-hand Milly Jacket, gold bias and black for cuffs over to Cally? Or do it myself?
-Um.... Darlton pants.
-style Guilford and Allen wigs (w/ Nick)

Work Stuff - May audit, make sure Nikki/Val will file EOM paperwork, expense report for FW16 @ 1858, make sure the extra set of keys resurfaces, various emails to DTL, and other stuff I'm probably forgetting.

Personal stuff - plan a june weekend for seattle, continue harassing UBS, find a checker auto-parts store

Odd Crossplay Reasearch )

Other things on the internet:
- A place that will make buttons for you relatively affordably
- A place where I could drop $350 on a quality button-making tool
- This place has kits too.... also for $300.

On an unrelated note. Nine years ago, I was in Creative Writing and Poudre, journaled nearly a page a day by hand, had never been to Japan and never heard of LiveJournal or The Prince of Tennis. Hell, I don't think I'd ever even set foot into Jo-Ann Store 1679. I'd also never played a male character in Cosplay.
Crazy times.

Monday: I found out at 8 that I was not scheduled at work at all and proceeded to sleep for another eight hours. I didn't wake up until 4 but I feel fabulous.

I've been listening to tons and tons and tons of podcasts the past few weeks. Mostly Savage Love.
Few notes and comments )

In other news, Akram's pants are done. The core of Milly's Jacket is done (for Cally - it just needs all the trim and buttons and whatnots).

Watched disc two of Lelouch tonight too. Liking it very much, even if I'm on the mean side.
setra: (Default)
Mostly for my own reference. There may be a few photos that end up here too, we'll see.

Glaston Knight(s)/Andreas Darlton (& Gilbert G.P. Guilford) (Code Geass)
1/30-Research
Links cut for length )
3/5 - rented first disc of Code Geass. Which of course only barely gets me to the point of having seen the Glaston Knights. Cornelia's voice (Minagawa Junko) is drop dead sexy and I am so in approval of serving her every whim. :P

I have fallen off the face of the earth for the last few days, but wanted to post quickly.
Mostly I've been working, sewing and sleeping.
My costume progress is being continually updated over here, for anyone who is interested.

Work is very worky, but we're doing well. This is our long-time RTL's last week at our store, so there's a lot of learning and training going on.

Anyway, I need to drop store mail and then head in to close. I'm around by phone if people need me. If not, I'll see the PG-related people at next weeks meeting, the work-related people at work and everyone else.... when time allows.

Happy Late Valentines. ^_^

That's right kids, costume research time has come again. Because it's only 4.5 months now until memorial day... and less than that to earlier cons. So here are some thoughts and plans that I'm working on right now:

Hinoe ~Izayoiki~
For Cally, likely for Fanime 2010. There is /no/ reference for him on the internet (besides this), so here are some cosplayers:
- First, anything I produce will be more accrate than this.
- This girl has a lovely pdf slideshow.
- This girl is just lovely on her own. Later on, I envy her lining material. (Also, for [personal profile] baranoneko, there's a Hinoe/Nozomi sequence on this page that you might enjoy. ^_^)

Persona 4
Character allocation and reference searches to come later

TWEWY Costumes (Likely for NDK 2010)
Current thoughts are:
- [profile] ladyofthegate = Minamimoto (who already has one awesome cosplayer I found), Kariya or Neku
- [personal profile] setra = A support reaper. (No one wants to be 777 for me or else I could be a /named/ support reaper. :( (They look the same))
- [personal profile] calhale = Joshua?
- [profile] starlit_dragon = Reaper Beat? (I'm pushing for Rhyme instead because...)
- My Brother Robert = Beat
