Whew! So Salt Lake Comic-Con Fan-X (too much of a mouthful) is finally over. I’ll be updating with my costume progress, and some photos from the con a bit later! I helped out a little (but not much LOL) and got into a situation where I could hold snakes and tarantulas and such! They were so docile and friendly! Snake-kisses are the best!
I didn’t end up wearing my full Medli costume cause I figured I wasn’t going to be there for the whole day so it wouldn’t matter, and I wanted to be comfortable. Heel-less heels walking on them slanted floors, is a hella NO. And the beak kind of makes it hard to breathe… (I need to drill better holes in the bottom though hah) But next time you see Medli, it’ll be all out! Wings, Harp, beak, pin, talons, squawk feets and all! I was told there is a local Komali cosplayer as well… Hrrrmm… (*_*)
For now I’m going to get back to work, and continue worrying about my tea eggs… Are they doing alright? Are they cozy? is the tea steepy enough for them? Hahaha!
Uguuuuu having the warm lappy on my tummy is minimally helping… Period pains suck! I’m just going to take an advil and try to sleep… Goodnight everyone!
Salt Lake Comic Con Fan-X! I ended up not debuting Medli, and I’m glad. I would have had not so much fun, since the floors are deathly slanty almost everywhere, I got my period (T_T), and this was @alanwarenski ‘s first con and it would have sucked for him to wait for me to be done with photo stops ‘n ops all the time.
It was a much better day with comfy shoes, comfy kigu, and FREEDOM! Haha!
Okay so remember me at 3 in the morning sewing mitered corners onto Medli’s weird apron flap doodly? Uhhh I just remembered my original plans were to screen print the colour on. Not sew them.
I used my nicely cut out bird-legs fabric for sewing on a border with fucking ridiculous mitered corners for nothing. I have to seam rip the whole thing now. I can’t just keep them on because there’s weird design patterns that would be impossible to appliqué on while still keeping it all smooth. So. Seam rip. and screen print. I am going to slowly lose my insanity.
Thank you all for being here for the ride haha
I don’t know anything about you.
UGGGH I can’t figure how to make my mitered corners get flat! I’m struggling so much and I’m getting really frustrated. I’m just going to walk away for now and go to bed early. Good night!
Ahhh I just finished Silver Spoon… There’s some sort of feeling of achivement when you finish an anime haha! It was very good! It’s my happy-place anime for sure… Waaah I’m going to miss it!
Hello my wee bubbles, here today I am going to show you a thing.
I have been livin’ the megane life since second grade, which always equaled four-eyes jokes, glasses hiding contests for the other kids and having fun breaking them. Then the one main hardship… Cosplaying characters without glasses. Guh. Either suck it up and wear glasses, walk around blind, or… Contact lenses?! This is a solution many of my fellow imperfected retinas have already come to.
