Well, the local anime convention is next weekend. Official time on the website says four days, eleven hours. So I spent much of this weekend finally working on my cosplay. Final plan was Kaname Chidori from Full Metal Panic. Because I'm lazy, I ended up going with the short sleeved school outfit from FMP Fumoffu.
*Bought pink tennis shoes (though laceless, because it was simpler)
*Found puffy sleeved short sleeved white button up shirt at Target
*Pleated and sewed skirt (my first zipper. And my second, as I needed to decrease the waist by one pleat)
*Made appointment for hair cut. Nothing drastic, just trim and bangs. I don't think I've had bangs since middle school
*Sewed blue trim on one arm of shirt
*Sewed red bow
*Sew trim on other arm of shirt
*Get hair cut (Tuesday morning)
*Dye hair blue - rinse as well as possible
*Hem skirt (Hoping for help at Thur night cosplay. My dress form is still at parents' and lawnchair
isn't up for hemming help that high up, he's still in training)
*Rip out collar, sew blue collar
*Sew bow on shirt
In other news, the trip to NYC for spring break has been canceled due to.. not buying tickets. Which means I can go to the Great Big Sea concert. And I need to buy MSP tickets now.
