I sure wish I had the skills and equipment to make Stocking's cool glowing stocking katana :<
I recently bought a wig for her and contacts (to me her eyes look green to me compaired to Panty, so I got green circle lenses although some people told me they thought they were blue -- oh well). I'm making her angel outfit for Anime Central, and hopefully I can also squeeze in a Kneesocks cosplay or two~
I went to KitsuneKon this weekend and had loads of fun. It was it's first year ever, and was held in Appleton, WI. It did really well, selling out of badges on the second day. I just love smaller conventions. Everything seems so personal, and you can just relax and not have to worry about running around everywhere. I won Best in Show for my SonSon cosplay! That's the highest award I have ever won!
Things have been going ok, and I've been meaning to make a video talking about my experience in Mexico, and about the con over the weekend. I also had an idea for a tutorial of some sorts to put on my website -- it will be a video about the myths of wig styling (ie: You can't use a brush, hairspray doesn't work, don't ever use a hair straightener on a wig) and how you can use those things, and what products seem to work best.
I also thought about documenting how I made a costume from start to finish, and fast forwarding the video to music... I've just been thinking of ideas somehow to incorporate my hobby into a show for youtube or something. I really want to give ideas to beginners who are starting out because not much info was out there when I started, and I really wish I had these ideas and tips on how to make my costume look better.
Hope everyone is doing well -- I've been noticing not many people have been on LJ lately including myself. lol
