Yesterday my mom and I went out to garage sales. I got about 100+ ties for about $10 so I can make about 7-10 skirts out of them and the leftovers I can make into purses and stuff. I'm really excited. Also on our outing, I found a VHS of Sailor Moon S. I got it for about 50 cents so I hope it works. Another bargin yesterday was a school girl's skirt uniform which I can use for a Maka Albarn cosplay costume if I choose to make it. It was $1 and the skirt has built in shorts. Big plus. Cheap and I don't have to wear shorts underneath.
I would like to have a model form duty as soon as possible.Whenever I find one it's too big. Finding one that's smaller than my dimensions is ideal so I can pad the areas to my specifications. My mom and I come close to finding them on several occasions but they end up being too big. Perhaps some time this week I'll convince her to wrap me in duct tape and make a body cast until I can find one to use.
I bought the Sailor Venus gloves a few days ago. They were 50% off since it's prom season so I saved $8. Now that my dog is here at my mom's I can't do a lot of sewing since I sew on the main floor and that is the only floor the dog is allowed on. My dog can be nosy and my mom and I are afraid she'll get into my needles or something.
I should be heading back to my dad's next week or something. I'm sick so I don't have a lot of strength. Also it's a feat to just do anything without coughing up a lung. The doctor's don't know what it is but whenever they diagnose it's always different. Allergies. Common cold. Ear infection. If they actually listened to me and my symptoms I'd be up and about. Nevermind.
I'm looking for another character to cosplay for FanExpo. I'm hoping Sailor Venus will be done for then so I'll have plenty of time to find and design another costume. I was actually going to call up my sister (who's currently in Europe) and ask if she wanted me to make her a Sailor Moon or Mercury costume for Halloween. But then I realized I'd likely kill myself doing a commission. I'll wait until she comes back in August to figure out if I'll make her costume and if what she picks is doable.
