dresses galore

dressdesign

For the past week or two I started this new game on facebook called fashion designer >.> It’s quite a terrible addiction I have. Not only do I get to just design wacky looking dresses… it kills SO much time xD But I suppose it’s stimulating my creative side? It’s quite fun putting extra things on and on until it comes out look cool~ But I saw a trend in the things I’ve been making… which is no color XDDD I guess I’ve been liking the black and white lately~ Don’t mind the two on top to the right… sometimes I get lazy and just do something really simple to accumulate money in the game xD Although I think a few days ago I was doing all blues and mermaid themed…. hm.

Anyways. might get a 2nd… or is it a 3rd? job soon!? Which shocks me but eh, we’ll see how the interviews go :D The first one went terribly but they still ended up giving me a second one probably because my qualifications are wonderful~~ I love how I can confidently say I’ve made over 45 costumes (who knows maybe more at this point) in the past 6 years. And they just keep adding up =3

Other than that.. I’m really tired. I need to go home and do fabric inventory and see what I can do with extra fabric. And start on Ahri soon o.o OH funnnn~~

Planning… green tea?!

I was up early this morning so … I had time to kill on my phone >.> can you tell? xD I took selfies… this one was with the green tea after a cup of horrible coffee o.o I think I was biting my lip but the picture ended up looking like a regular smile and I went “eh, whatever” Cause I guess today wasn’t a great selfie day xD (yes, there is such a thing lol)

And I finished planning the cosplay out that you saw like… a few days ago. I found fabric that I can use in my pile of fabrics which made me really happy =3 I found beige for the top as well as white for the lining. Then I also have the pretty maroon color for the mid section which is absolutely perfect and I’m SO happy. I remember I got the fabric at the fashion district which was a total last minute buy and it’s actually for a skirt but…. hey, this works =3 I can’t really believe I’m going to try to make this in basically.. a week. I started it today and it looks like a potatosack =3 As always…

Looks like my work life is gonna get worse…this will be fun

Elsa?! *jelly*

Ahhh!! I found the most amazing thing! okay… so I’m exaggerating a little bit… but it is quite cool!

So I’ve seen a lot of Elsa cosplayers already but I’ve haven’t been very impressed by them… I have seen a sew anna’s that’s been quite amazing though. But Elsa is quite the feat as not only is fabric choice SO important… the wig and body type actually does make a difference. But aside from all that… I think the thing I’m looking for the most is the cape. I’m a cape/cloak kinda gal so I get SUPER picky. (you’ll hopefully see why in the next few months) So I’ll now direct you over to Cupcake Cosplay who has done some amazing stuff since this isn’t the first time I’ve run across them. But they just did the Elsa cape and my gosh… it’s quite creative! I do love it =3 Although me and Gee agree that it should be sparklier but… hey, maybe in the light it really does gleam. 

Now I shall share my favorite foreign version of Let it Go: Polish :] I think I root for the underdogs too much…. LOL I say that like its a problem xD But really. I like how it sounds and the translation is pretty cool~ Funny thing? I got my cousin&Sister trying to sing this version… it’s hilarious xD

Mam Te Moc~?

Snakeish design

After 5 hours of straight work I finally declared myself a break xD Cause honestly… once you start falling asleep on the computer you know its bad >.> While eating almonds and drinking black tea. You’d assume all the caffeine would get to me lol

One nice thing about work is ~ I got myself a personal work printer! It’s quite amazing especially since It can scan documents directly to my computer files =3 So … I needed to test it! And naturally a sketch would really show off if it catches all the details! So I took my break while sketching this out. I’m not sure what it is but Gee says it reminds him of a snake. Which is all fine by me, I like snakes =3

My sketching has gotten really rusty but only in terms of drawing people’s figures…. I really can’t draw bodies so well >.< But details.. oh I can draw details =3 At least I try?

I got a good work out in today. I’m going back on a tighter schedule for myself with work, a healthier lifestyle, and play =3 But I don’t feel like any of it is a chore … is that weird? I actually am a little more eager to work at the office cause it’s something that I can only do myself. Plus it’s just easier if I take charge xD And then a healthier lifestyle has been my goal for awhile and I’ve noticed a difference in energy levels based on it. Of course “play” really consists of cosplay/catching up with people/web surfing and stuff like my blog posts. Oh and sketching! I’m debating if I want to keep posting up my sketches… maybe I’ll color them? =3

I’m working on ALA photos now~ Working on getting them up before Friday!

Next project!

A take on Little Red Riding Hood by Hermsi

We’ve been calling her “Little Red” for … maybe the past few months now. This is maybe the 3rd design we have come up with and it looks like the last! At first it she started out in a full ballgown .. then the ballgown got slimmer with a huge wolf head on it… and now we ditched the ballgown and went with something that can be moved around in. This is the ending sketch, we’re working on final colors and textures =3 I’m happy about it though~

We also had to rethink the design cause ballgowns are not very table sitting friendly >.> Which is what I need xD

I give myself… 3 weeks to finish designs for kickstarting =3 Then I give myself a few months while working on wedding designs in the mean-time for the NEXT line as well as for a friend~

Spent most of today running errands for work … oh! And checking out the grand opening of Lee’s Sandwiches in my city!! That’s crazy just cause I waited there for TWO HOURS. and you know what? They said we only ordered one large bread and we ordered THREE >.> But they took our receipt and my brother didn’t fight for it -.-  And I’m a firm believer of getting for what you paid for. At least in amount… quality wise it didn’t match up anyways >.>
