MOOD: WHAT THE HECK
CURRENTLY WORKING ON: COSPLAY. Well actually, I'm going to bed. But TOMORROW. COSPLAY.
So somehow, I managed to do practically NOTHING FOR THE PAST TWO MONTHS, AND NOW IT'S TIME FOR OTAKON! AND MY COSTUMES AREN'T READY!!!! :^D Idk if you noticed, but I haven't really had the chance to get online extensively this week, 'cause I'm trying to finish stuff up in time for Otakon. ""orz Here's some pics of stuff I've done the past couple days!
Okay, so I didn't make this;;; My friend is doing a Persona 4 cosplay, so I thought it'd be fun if I joined her as Naoto (bottom left) since the summer casual outfit is easy enough.
I kinda got mixed up when I was buying clothes, though, and thought that Naoto's shadow design was her normal design, so I went and bought this jacket:
WELL, I'VE BEEN WANTING A BLAZER LIKE THIS FOR A WHILE NOW, SO IT'S OKAY!!
This cosplay was super last minute, so the colors are kind of off... I might add a band to the hat to make it look more like Naoto's hat instead of some random hat, but we'll see. TOO MUCH TO DO!
This is all the armor and stuff I've finished before today for my Virion (left) and Roy (right) cosplays. Those pants on the right are just pants I already owned so... I REALLY HAVN'T FINISHED MUCH AT ALL FOR ROY... I'm really happy with how his armor is coming out, though. :^D
I finished Roy's sword today. :V I already had the base done, but I finished up the handle.
I SPENT THE PAST TWO/THREE/IDK DAYS WORKING ON THE HANDLE FOR THIS SWORD, I HAVE NO IDEA WHY SOMETHING SO TINY TOOK ME SO LONG TO DO. It didn't actually take a terribly long time (maybe several hours if I did it in one sitting), but it still took waaaaaay longer than I thought it would. I think it was just the heating up of worbla and cutting out of foam and worbla that TOOK. FOREVER. I'm so glad it's done, though. Can't wait to start painting it and getting it done!! >:V
Just a pic of the progress I made today. I finished the sword handle, completely finished Roy's second shoulder piece, and started working on Roy's breastplate. MY PLANS FOR TOMORROW ARE PRETTY HEFTY, BUT... IF EVERYTHING GOES AS PLANNED, I'LL HAVE A LOT OF STUFF DONE BY THE END OF TOMORROW.
IF YOU'RE GOING TO OTAKON, let me know!! :^D If you want to. Maybe we can meet up! 8^D I feel like I've never really met any of my friends on theO in real life. I guess y'all aren't east coasters like I am;;;
Anyway, I'm off to bed so I can get some rest and wake up early again to COSPLAY WORK. Have a grand whatever, y'all.
YO. What up, my friends. This week, I wanna try and catch up on things I meant to do earlier, and just stuff I'm supposed to do. :U So I'm making a list and posting it here so I don't forget.
- Commission for my sister's friend
- First and Second place prizes for my challenge
- Super late birthday gift for a friend
- Fashion requests from my fashion world
This is all I can think of off the top of my head... if I owe you anything, please tell me in the comments! ;0;>
Also, I finished my Virion breastplate, yesterday, so I thought I'd show some pictures. 8D
I took this picture to show how the armor looks before I add a layer of metallic paint, and before gloss. :V IT LOOKS SO MUCH MORE VIBRANT, HERE, IT KIND OF MAKES ME MAD...
And here it is with metallic paint and gloss. I like that it's ~*~shiny~*~, but the colors just feel so much duller. orz Weh, oh well. I'M LEARNING. *U*b
And here's some pictures of me wearing it with the other armor I made. I haven't added straps, yet, so I'm just kind of balancing it on my shoulder, haha. xD
Overall, I'm really happy with how this came out!! I was afraid that this was just going to fail completely. xD; I still need to work on the actual sewing for the costume, though. :U I should have this done in time for Otakon!
That's all I've got to say, for now. -u- Have a nice day! :D
Mood: Itchy arm. (???)
I really wanna practice some coloring tonight!! >:M If you have any line arts that you want colored, please send them my way!! I can't guarantee that I'll color your line art, but I would really like some lines to work with so I can experiment with coloring and stuff. >_<
BUT UH, yeah. If you've got any finished line arts that need to be colored, let me know! ;u;/
Decided to log my comments for Aryia's comment slam, so I can keep track of them. :^D

Mood: Hungry, but kool. B)
YAY, I'm on summer break now. *U*b Just thought I'd mention, haha. I actually still have one more take home final to do, but it should be pretty easy... *u*;
But yeah, my plans for May are mainly to work on stuff for Nekocon. The applications are May 24th at 9:00 PM, so I've got like two weeks to try and finish some stuff to show for the application. >:V Right now I'm working on TWEWY keychain designs, and once I finish those I'll do some mini prints or something. WEEHHH I HOPE I GET IT BUT AT THE SAME TIME...
Anyway, not much else to say besides that. By the way, you may've already heard from the "What's happenin' on theO" section of the news, but Aryia's hosting a three week comment slam that starts today. :D It's not too hard, just three comments every day for the next three weeks! If you haven't already, maybe consider joining to help liven up theO for the next couple weeks. *u*b ♥
Also, I'm looking for new theO artists to subscribe to. >:m My backroom has been pretty slow, and I want to look at more art. *-* I also just want to make some new friends on theO, and see who's around these days. xD If you have any friends whose portfolio you think I should check out, maybe send their username my way! ;o
And yep, that's all I've got. Have a nice week, everyone!! :D
