Today was a slow cosplay day, but at least I made some forward progress. JoAnn's was having a sale that I thought ended today. Turns out the coupon I used was actually supposed to be for next week, so I wasted energy stressing about using it for nothing.
I bought the fabric and pattern for Mello's jacket. It's not perfect, and there's no way it'll be accurate, but for once, I don't think I care much. I would like to have a more accurate jacket maybe eventually, but since I wasn't even going to do it in the first place, I'm just happy to have it. =]
