Sakuracon: cosplay plan ramblings

I have a bad habit of not adding tags to entries which causes me to go back and add them, URG.

Trying to whittle down a list for SakuraCon cosplay. I previously mentioned that I'll be making Angel Stocking. I know I'll be one of the billions there but I'll be cosplaying with the lovely Lizzie so I don't care. We're perv girls together and we match the characters stupidly well (save for the fact that she doesn't sleep around.)
Darkwoods Circus Miku tempts me SO MUCH. I have the fabric for the dress but I haven't figured out her goat legs and cage crinoline skirt yet. Also corset... wat? I've never had to make any of these things before so I see this being a HUGE project. I'd like to bring -something- of Miku along... and Lizzie wants to be Luka. We were thinking of doing the Project Diva 2nd Magnet outfits or race queens. I'm seriously paranoid of showing my stomach though. It'd be cute doing the Goodsmile version but I need to be careful not overloading myself since I have 2 months to make what I can.
Decade-tan (Kamen Rider Decade) = another big build and TONS OF VINYL
Magical Emi (Mahou no Star Magical Emi) = Everyone will be like "WHO?! O_o;;"
[super secret Idon'ttalkaboutit outfit] = I WOULD HAVE TO BE INSANE. There will be more on this when I actually start making it... >_>;;

If worse comes to worse I have Nagi, whom I never wore, and I also have Ritsuko. Need to fix up my helmet though.

In other news I've found a room; despite it being floor space I won't have to pay for it (score!) I'll be able to bring bedding since I'll be riding up with Zach and we'll be the only ones in the car. That's pretty win-win.
I hope it's at the Sheraton! I want to go swimming! :D

Are you going to Sakuracon? Who will you dress as?

I -finally- got word from my boss that I have the days off for SakuraCon! I'm really excited about this since Liz and I decided last night we would do Angel Panty and Stocking together :D Also their school uniforms. Nothing else is really planned at the moment I don't think... Kelsey wanted me to be her Ami in the Sailor Moon group she's doing so I'm totally down with that haha. I love Ami... she's my favorite by far >3<!!!
As for ideas as to what I'll make? Crap I dunno. I DO know I wanted to try and get Decade-tan done! This would be EPIC but also rather tough. I think I can do it though if I really get myself to buckle down on it. Building and sewing it though will involve things I have never tried before so I'm really afraid to mess up!
Yes.... Decade as in Kamen Rider. I'm a goob for these shows I swear. Decade has one of my favorite designs and after looking at some girl designs online to sketched out my own. The friends I have that are also into Tokusatsu approved of it so I just may make it! Blahh... who knows!

As for my TaoBao order it turns out that some of the wigs were either sold out or the shop owners were still not back from holiday. From my previous post the wigs were the first Stocking wig shown, the P&S patches, and the short Miku wig. Sadface. I really wanted the Stocking wig! Although I do remember that Arda wigs was planning on coming out with one in March! So I may wait to see what theirs looks like before I try and order this other one again. And perhaps the second choice Stocking wig will work out wonderfully! I don't know until I get it :)

Right now though I'm just looking for possible room space for SakuraCon... oi oi oi

Cosplay Taobao order #1: HOLY SH!T TONS OF WIGS

I think I went a WEE bit overboard on ordering wigs off of Taobao. 2 of which are for another person but the rest are all "mineminemineminemine" hahaha. A few of which will be sold off depending. I ordered 2 different wigs for stocking and whichever one I like better I will keep. I'll list off what I got with the URLs below (in case ya'll want to look or buy as well.) Once I get these in I will for sure go camera happy and write up some reviews. Especially since I made orders from newer shops/shops with lower ratings.
Here goes...

Second month of 2011- and what progress has been made?

Still no trim at the fabric store for Pirate Miku. I am now officially putting her on the back burner. Instead I went through my boxes from when I moved and pulled out a half-started costume from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.
It's a totally random DVD box set art picture I fell in love with. Sakura's outfit is rather amazing and I was also working on Sayoran's for a friend (but he lives in Chicago.) I haven't touched this thing in a long time to going through the pieces and sorting out what's what is a bit annoying. However while making headway on the outfit this past weekend I'm rather excited to see it finished; though who knows when that'll be ^^;; eheheh...
