In any case, I've been up to stuff! I'm hosting three panels at Fanime this year, so I cut down my cosplay list to make time for working on the panels. The panels are:
- Pokemon Trivia League - Co-hosting with Ryoga Rocket, Friday from 3pm to 4pm in Panels 1
- Sewing: How to Read Patterns - Hosting all by my lonesome, Sunday from 4pm to 5pm in Panels 3
- Magikarp: A History - Co-hosting with my boyfriend, Sunday from 7pm to 9pm in Panels 2
Cosplay-wise, I had to drop my plans to finish Elsa (Frozen) before Fanime, because I can't find the right fabric for part of it, I can't figure out the pattern for part of it, and there's still about a thousand sequins to sew on. As a backup, I was going to cosplay Emmy (Professor Layton), but first of all, I finished playing the latest Prof. Layton game and [spoilery-spoilers major big ol' spoilers that spoil things] happened, and I'm questioning my cosplay choices, ha! Also the pattern I chose threw me for a loop, I ran out of fabric, and I don't even really like the fabric I chose. Plus I don't want to do sleeves.
SO. New cosplay lineup looks like this! (in no particular order)
I have unofficially dubbed Fanime "TummyCon", and 4/5 of my cosplays show midriff. Hope the weather's warm! As for progress, I have almost everything I need for Yumi, just waiting on the wig to come in the mail. I just need to alter the shirt into a crop top. WiiFit Trainer needs the yoga pants re-dyed darker, and I need new sneakers for it (old ones are super dirty). Ho-Oh and Koffing are done as far as I'm concerned. I might take another crack at fixing the wig for Koffing, but it's fine. Part 1 of my secret cosplay came in the mail today, needs washing then altering. When Part 2 comes in, I'll need to alter that too. Wig needs styling, but it's almost done.
