Progress on Vanellope Cosplay.
I need to add the zipper and seal the skirt. The wig needs the larger candies applied. Then it’s onto the boots and leggings. The hoodie was ordered and a spare is getting made by an awesome friend.
However, there is progress.
Maeve’s wig is DONE! Hand-painted/dyed each dred. Thanks to The Rabbit Tales for all the advice!
It looks AMAZING!!!! Awesome job!!
It’s a two-man job to stop. I speak from experience here. I can give you a book or two on how to and what to talk about and things like that.
The biggest thing, though, is communication.
All. the. time.
About everything and anything. Talk before yelling and admit when it’s bothering you. Take a pause before talking and think about things more.
I still fall into that behavior, but it reduces when I know I can talk to the husband about the issues before I explode out.
Still pretty certain I’m crazy to be doing this project, but Ivy is coming along. I’ll be fixing up and finishing the bolero then head to the corset and skirt.
I am an utterly crazy person. I’ve known this for a while. Now I can confirm with photos.
For quite a while I’ve been wanting to create a Poison Ivy Cosplay. I found a stunning version of her (http://fav.me/d62mzdk) and found myself working on the costume. Each ivy leaf is embroidered, then cut out by hand, and is now getting sewn into place BY HAND.
The catch? I plan to have it done by the end of May. You heard me. I have 3 weeks and I just started a new job.
An old lady at work today told me my hair was a kaleidoscope! (* o*)
Not watercolors?? *shock*
Well, I’ve been feeling homesick… I miss my friends, I miss my siblings, I miss… Home. Here is fine and nice, but it’s not quite the same. I’ve been getting pretty down on myself as well, since almost none of my friends back home have contacted me after I moved. Some times I text the one I was closest to, and no reply. For 8 months now. I’ve given up trying to catch up with some friends because they don’t quite care about me anymore. Moving has shown me who my true friends are. Every time I think about this, and get all sad, I instantly think of my friend RabbitTales and everything is better <3
Okay, so you totally made me cry reading this. And Josh “Daw’d” at it. You are such a wonderfully sweet girl that hearing that you aren’t happy in Utah makes me so so so so sad.
I know you moved because of your work and school and that’s understandable. Remember that this is all temporary. Do good in school and you’ll get back to Colorado in no time.
You’re such a sweetie and always a wonderful person to be around which is why Josh and I do what we can to see you. The convention was, indeed a front to being able to visit you. It was a literal “When is the closest convention in Utah so we have a ‘reason’ to go up there more than “we want to see our Saffron” so people didn’t ask us why we’re going up to Mormon-Central.” Don’t be surprised if we do a weekend run to visit in the Summer just because. Screw a front, we want to see you.
I am so happy to hear that you feel so comfortable around us. To be honest, I just always feel loved around you. Anytime you’re around I can’t help but smile and laugh and I love listening to you. No matter if you’re laughing or freaking out or fan-gasming over something. You just make my day brighter.
Remember that Utah is temporary and Colorado will be waiting. However, Josh and I will always love you and be here for you.

P.S. Totes need to come to DCC. *Nods*
therabbittales replied to your photo: So I really really wanna cosplay Oruha (Clover)…
Semi-joking aside, to get curls *that* tight, you’d have to do them by hand with a very, very small curler with lots and lots of tiny sections. We’re talking, use a 1/4inch dowel or…
I doubt you’ll be able to find a curling iron that small. There are other ways to curl the hair and I would suggest starting with a straight wig. It’ll be easier to section off.
