Super tired, but I got a lot done today. Everything was ironed and hemmed, and I’ve started to put together the jacket. My friends who are awesome forevers supplied me with both a lightweight stuffing for my tail (which is a story unto itself. EEEEEVIL STYROFOAM FILLING) and the perfect navy fabric for my bodysuit. Now I have a colour I’m more satisfied with!
I also went out and bought a bunch of craft foam for Lugia’s back fin-things and head spikes. Originally the plan was to buy a couple of 8x11 sheets of navy craft foam, but unfortunately the craft store didn’t have any individual navy. The only navy foam they had came in a package of 30 pieces of foam each 3x8ish, and only 4 of which were navy. I ended up having to buy 3 packs to get enough navy. Anyone know what I can do with several small sheets of craft foam in various colours by any chance?
Working on finishing the jacket tomorrow, and if I’m lucky I’ll start the bodysuit. But now it’s time for bed.
(OH! And I think I might have talked my friend into cosplaying Ho-oh, so we can hang out as a pair!)

Currently ATTEMPTING a mock-up of a potential Lugia cosplay for AN. The fabric I have isn’t exactly quite the right colours, but I didn’t have to go out and buy anything new so that’s a win. Crossing my fingers that the mock-up turns out and I can actually have a new costume for this year!

Thank you! I love it, you’re adorable. :D So you had fun for me I hope.
I did! I spent most of the weekend working, between the Masquerade and pimping out our own Con, but it was a blast. I got SUPER sunburnt on my shoulders though, not looking forward to that tomorrow
