More Productive than last time

Alrighty! DTLA trip take 2! xP

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 =.=
