So once again we took a trip down town to get fabric and trims. This time was different from the last though! Last time I was the only one looking for something and it wasn’t even fabric -.- So it wasn’t very fun and the traffic was horrible not to mention only a few hours to explore. So this time we were lucky enough to be able to schedule a last minute date for all of us to grab fabric for upcoming cosplay plans! The way to shop fabric is quite… insane. You find grumpy people that just want you to buy and get out… and then you find the ones that just nag on you =.= It’s quite annoying. But honestly the guy who showed us the most customer service and humor won me over >.> Clean store and sense of humor.. plus he knows cosplay?! Yea. That’s a win there lol. That guy will be loved by cosplayers all around haha.
So Anyways. Bottom left picture is just a store that had rolls of fabric going up to the top o.o It was crazy but when you have a specific color and start to get how the fabric is sorted out… it’s quite easy to pick stuff out from the chaos. I’ve grown to like it quite a lot xD Who knew….
In the end we got there at around noon ish and left around 5pm. That’s a good 5 hours of constant walking, bargaining, and getting slightly lost xD
So afterwards we got food~ Which dessert was a crepe basically to myself… wasn’t as yummy as I’ve had before but it was still good xD We ended up going to Little Tokyo to eat and saw Naruto cosplayers gathering… it was odd. dinner was great and so was shopping a little! I was sad I couldn’t take them up to the gardens on top of the hotel but… we’ll likely be back anyways xD
Oh! About the top left picture now. So Gee knows the 85 bakery near me doesn’t have the good breads -.- But the one probably furthest away from the both of us (and our personal favorite) has such a great variety! So he picked up one of my favorites for me =3 Thank you <3
And thanks to the dopples for driving/providing a nice compact car. I hope the streets down town weren’t too harsh on your car >.<;;
Ah! Such a great haul though! I ended up with…4.5 yards of fabric for a really good price o.o Hate to say it but… I need tennis shoes next time if I want to keep doing these things =.=
My new background on my phone =3 oh so cute!! This is just reminding me to pick up some black fabric and make this dang dress *-* Anyways… Sica and the girls are awesome =3 I also love Yuri’s sultry look she’s giving xD Have you seen the shoes?! I definitely need to wear a pair like that to some dinner xP
Now to stop spazzing about the girls…. I had a LOT of work time today T.T It was so sad cause I was actually quite busy. Which in all honesty is good since that equals clients/money but… I was really looking forward to just working on cosplay planning and sketching! But I had maybe 10 or 15 minutes between clients today in which I had to spend getting the stuff ready for tomorrow’s event. Which I’m not even going to =.= But no one prepared for it so I just did it…. ugh. I think they undervalue my work in the office. I barely had time to eat so I ended up having dinner around.. 9pm. And you can see the time stamp on my phone is 11:40 and I snapped that when I got home and on the comp o.o
Seriously a tiring day but.. .eh. I can’t complain. Just sleep early and have coffee tomorrow xDD
I got kinda annoyed from the lack of stuff my brother has been doing….. cause I only stayed late cause I had so much on my plate and then some from the incompetence of some peoples. eh whatever. I lived through it and finished my work~ =3 Trying to stay positive about it lol
My sewing machine is still having problems… it’s sad T.T I can’t do my other work so I’m stuck doing actual work T.T AHHH THE SADNESS!!
Lighthouse!! Today was… okay. It’s Ash Wednesday!! What does that mean? Well supposedly that I am suppose to pick something to give up but…. I don’t know why but that usually fails. Especially since I’m literally the only one out of my friends to remotely do Lent stuff =.= Maybe that’s why actually….
anyways! I had a business seminar this morning.. I woke up at 7. SEVEN!!! AM! It was a whole new light o.o The kids were like “wow you’re up?!” So I was quite amazed at myself to be honest. What was crazy was that the hotel tried to charge us $10 for a plain bagel… the employees were trying to get pocket money from us. We could tell and it was horrible. Let’s say we’re not gonna go back to that hotel or seminar again…
Afterwards there was food and boba. Always~ But after that… mother decided to just take a stroll on the beach and show us the statue she visits to often o.o So that was different… I took these pictures while just chilling out. I wasn’t feeling very happy happy though cause I have a lot on my mind as of lately…. that’s something completely different though :/
I’ve been super tired and lazy to do any sewing work and I have orders to fill and patterns to cut constantly. I really just want a day each week for cosplay. It would be SO nice. But I do have things in order to work on posting on my cos blog soon =3 It’s gonna be so much fun! (kinda..)
I know this post is technically late as this MV and song has been out for a few days now… but honestly I think it’s because I’ve just trying to hog all 9 girls to myself XP (plus Sica makes a lot of appearances in it! WO!) So this is the MV for Mr. Mr. which is on SNSD’s new CD~ I’m loving their songs to the max but honestly it’s the SNSD effect T.T They’re just so wonderful T.T(slightly biased)
But on another note I’m also part Blackjack so I also have been liking 2ne1′s new album as well. I love the spunkyness and it’s really great music to listen to when I’m annoyed xD So check out their album as well =3
Back to the video! I was slightly confused at first and dissapointed cause of how the video was done but… I think it’s cause there is a lack of dynamic storytelling and less dancing as well. But the video has a cool theme to it, I love the pink lab coats and I definitely want to make the black/white dresses shown at the end =3 It’s sooooo adorable and I might as well make it for the heck of it!
Can I just say how genius it was to write MrMr in a heartbeat kinda way? very creative~
Which also brings me to the sketches me and Gee have been trying to do everyday. I think I hit a road block so… I dunno how well I can do today’s sketch T.T
So initially I was suppose to update about this yesterday but I was way too lazy to actually get on and do so just because… well I think yesterday I was having a blast losing horribly to league games… like really badly. I still want to stream games too so I dunno… It’s a mixed feeling :/
So this skirt is actually all fabric from my aura kingdom cosplay! It’s just the extra fabric… and a little non-extra fabric of the silver lining. So the picture you see is the in progress picture… the band is currently flipped inside out which I did something different this time! With my last skirt I put belt loops on afterwards but this time I sewed them into the band itself… hopefully you’ll be able to see once I take a picture sometime… maybe tomorrow! The skirt took a total of maybe.. 2 hours and that’s with redoing the zipper like 3 times T.T It was sad.
I’m working really hard to get my kickstarter up and ready…. it’s taking so much work but I’m really hoping it’ll be worth it? I want more info up soon but.. ive been up till 3 every night and then I wake up at 9… it’s not pretty on me t.T
