Need a bow

Kikyo055

:D So for birthdays in my group we tend to pick an activity and just.. go for it. So we’ve been to new places, done things like ice skating and different food places… yada yada. Wellll… for my birthday coming up we decided on archery :D Which has been on my to-try list for FOREVER. And my friend has a pretty traditional wooden bow so Gee told me to do a shrine maiden cosplay xD so here’s kikyo! Inuyasha~~~ Old school stuff man. Funny thing is … I have the fabric for it already since it’s pretty much Ahri fabric just covered up xD But I don’t know if I really want to make it just because I have the fabric..

My days have been weird so I haven’t been able to do much in terms of cosplay. Makes me sad. But I might hold off on that a bit and just make myself a new dress or something >.> Oh my sister wants a prom dress. That will be interesting o.o Get to blow other teenager’s minds away with a dress selection.. heh. hehe.

destroying, making!

Now don’t get all excited here xD Today was definitely a sewing/catching-up day. So let’s start with this picture! Top right? Can you guess? They’re part of my sylveon ear making process! It’s SUPER long.. especially longer than I was expecting so I don’t know if I’ll continue to make them…. >.<;; Even some things are just too much work for me (as much as it pains me to say that…)

Now the picture on the bottom is my bow! I ripped off all the black wings on it so I can sand the bow to it’s perfection and repaint that beast! Then I’m also redoing the wings anyways so they’ll be sturdier and look a lot smoother =3 So I’m excited~

Now the ballgown skirt on the right.. it’s actually belong to a girl that I was able to bribe over by using my mannequin xP She needed it though, ballgowns tend to be a bi*sh on your own. It’s lookin good though isn’t it? xD

So yes! A nice amount of sewing work.. planning work… relaxing time.. and sketching! Sorta a relaxing day… kinda a boring day o.o Well other than lunch with Gee~ We had lovely sushi and boba! It was both such a great discovery~~ We see each other a lot less in person but it makes the time together all the more worth it~

Drafting wing!

Ah… another day … another complaint xD

Honestly I don’t tell a fraction of my complaints on here because… well complaining doesn’t get you anywhere. I do like to rant a lot and I apologize to Gee for having to hear it. I really try to absorb it and bounce it back somewhere else (like rock music and cosplay) but sometimes that doesn’t work. But like everyone else, I have my good days and bad days xD

With that… I woke up this morning to make myself lunch/breakfast. This is after the most relaxing shower I’ve taken in awhile, it felt so nice *-* Ever had one of those? They’re lovely. I really wish I had a full on bath tub cause that would be amazzziinnggg. I think I’ve said that before…

Tax is really killing me T.T And every time I rant to Gee I can tell he gets annoyed xD And I see why… IM getting annoyed of my own ranting! Believe that? xD IT happens… but honestly. I’m ranting about the same things over and over again…. and Gee knows I’m just doing this for the sake of my parents. But honestly I’d rather be designing, cosplaying, making, touring cons! It’s crazy isn’t it? Yea I’ll have to live on ramen for awhile but… I’ll do it. So basically I’m just thinking of a way to get past the next 4 months of this… while staying sane. Sanity… please. xD All I can think about is my next cosplay.. my next design! — I did design something today too =3 

Oh so yea. The picture! I did the rest (almost) of the prop pieces today! I need to get the kids on the paper mache but I have to set it all up and it doesnt seem like my parents want me to have time… or a life. They’re taking up my friday >.> I need to go out. pls.

Okay.. slightly going stir crazy.

One sparkly nail

Just testing out the grip on this bow =3 Annd… my nail polish gets the spotlight on it =3 It was done by my cousin before he left… for some reason it lasts longer when someone else does your nails :/ Although I try not to get pampered by it too much, I like having free reign over my own nails xP (Remember the crazy days of gluing stuff on?! xDDD)

I’ve been.. partially sick for the past few days. Nothing really bad but I’ve been constantly in a weird state. Last 2 nights I took meds before sleeping and I keep waking up at 8am. Which in all honesty wouldn’t be that bad if it wasn’t for the fact that meant I slept 5 hours only and that doesn’t fly well with me as the day goes on >.>;; Soooo… I decided to sleep in more but was still awaken early. Whatever, I liek starting my day before noon anyways xP

So! For having enough sleep at night.. I took 3 naps at the office o.o That’s after coffee and some calcium/vitamin boosts o.o So maybe it’s just the constant night time meds. I’m off of them >.> No more cold medicine!!! T.T I can’t take it xD but I do love explaining all the gross stuff to Gee and have him throw back nerd at me xD Ah… so fun~

I have so much to do guys! I hope this dry throat and light coughing goes away soon >.< Did it stop me from working out? NOPE! I still did some toning which BURNS. Blogilates really knows how to hit them spots xP

Very fond of my bow

Hi guys! Decided to take a selfie yesterday with my bow that doesn’t look like cardboard anymore!! Making progress and it’s so..so.. satisfying!! but some updates~

1. You’ll see a short twitter feed on the side of my blog now. It’s nice isn’t it? Since I’m getting involved more with updating regularly especially because I don’t always have the time to update my blog every single day.

2. It seems like my work schedule will get really hectic from all the promises I’m making so let’s see how my posting habits change from here to twitter… xD

Anyways! Today I went to lunch with brother and friend which was nice. I like being able to get lunch and dinners with friends… it’s super nice. :D Afterwards I did some updates at home and ran off to the mall with Kasu to find purple skinny jeans for my Hipster Psylocke cosplay! Yep. For Comikaze which I’m officially  going to =3 But to my sadness…no stores have nice purple skinny jeans o.o It’s crazy cause I swear it was in style T.T I guess I’m not up to date with fashion or something… xD But if anyone is looking for maroon pants, every store basically carries that xDD

I also got a huge bug bite on my leg… it’s super distracting >.<;;

Also how does my dear Hermsi get followers like crazy on Twitter?! Ahhh!! He’s just more loveable I guess xD So you can find him on Twitter @ItsHermsi
(yea. I’m advertising you now :P Not like you need it….. =.=)
