Sooo I totally don't like my Sokka sandals because they're made for someone with bigger feet. I wanted to use my flipflops as a base because well.. duh. sandals. flipflops. HELLOOOOO.

But my one pair is lost in the room of storage, so I used my Mickey Mouse ones (SHOWS HOW MUCH I LOVE SOKKA OK). I forgot they're a size too big, so... they're too big!!! :( but they will do :( I've only seen one or two people make the sandals anyway, so the size can be overlooked. bwuahahah.

ok they're not so bad. I just have to paint the bottoms to be black and fix the red (lol so uneven).

ps: also made the flame for the hairtie, gold on the collar (100% now~!!!), & uh.. we'll see what else I can come up with. tomorrow = wrist bands & pants. then the rest is hollyhollyholly and pokemonfaggot.

HOORAY I FINALLY GET TO DO THE MASQ FOR ONCE. HOORAIOJDS YEA. And of course it's Wang Fire and not something I worked hard onx23432049032. lol. But Wang Fire is still sewn very nicely for such a simple thing (I just hate the collar).

Awwwwwwwww thumbelina. I want to make her now. Add that to the Halloween list along with Megara, Sailor Mercury, Ragnarok Online, & Rogue (X-MEN FTW). oh dear. Her wig would have to be three wigs though because her ponytail is soo thick. ;[

I'm starting off little.

and then work up to the big stuff. costume-wise. i'll also drink coffee to make me not take a nap. lol

HMM. I did some today and hopefully, I can do more tomorrow. I want to finish the pants (aka find them), wrist bands (50% atm), & start the sandals tomorrow. The sandals shouldn't take long since most of it will be foam.

FAN EXPO WILL BE FUN BECAUSE LIKE.. IT'S MY HOME CON. My favourite con. 2004 was the best year and I haven't had that much fun since, but I think I will this time since I plan on hanging out A LOTTTTTT for once. T_T

progress is FAIL AND LAME because I was busy all weekend.

tonight: do NOTHING, but clean my room and then play some RO (TEEHEE) later on.

i think i would be sewing 300 times more if i had a set up and ROOM to sew. god. i miss going into my room and blasting music. i can't do that in the living room (aka my new room minus the current room i sleep in that is covered in junk) unless no one is home.

it shouldn't take more than an evening to move all that junk into the other room. Then I can go out for some paint tomorrow and uh.. start painting it. Maybe it will be done by this weekend (yeah right), so I can have 2 weeks to sew. A new costume maybe? Moe Travis with non-pink avaitors (wahhhhhhhhhhh)? Porygon gijinka (digimon > all), some more avatar, or uh.. something else.


oh well

one more day of work.

i do enjoy the thought of doing such a huge amount of cleaning. I've been throwing things out slowly since the winter, but now I can do the rest. Only problem is... my mom's house still has the same amount of junk just waiting for me. :\ Maybe I should just go over there, box them all, and store them there (or somewhere at dad's) until I have time to get them? I dunno. I want my bed though. >:| I'm going to take some of the pillows fosho. Two body pillows + one normal pillow = NOT ENOUGH. MOAR. At least one more.

what does this have to do with cosplay?


I am gonna throw out some old costumes though, maybe give away some fabric, and throw out a bunch of scrap fabric. I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO BE CLEANED. IT IS DRIVING ME INSANE AND MAKING ME MOODY. A libra that ISN'T organized? WHAT IS GOING ON?

fn sokka to-do list for tonight:
01. handsew hook & eyes onto collar
02. handsew hook & eyes onto shirt
03. cut/modify pants
04. sew edge/trim onto pants
05. sew square for belt

i'll most likely be distracted by matt and mandy coming home and the fighting that will occur. loool

um hm.

I also decided to make the space sword. No idea what I'll do for the case though because his case doesn't make sense. :(

i'm also tempted to make albel nox. i'd loved him and wanted to cosplay him for at least 3 years and it's extremely rare to see an albel cosplayer!

ps travis is out of the picture because the glasses are too LAME. i'm either sticking to just simon once i finish fn+water tribe+holly summers since Walmart apparently has his boots or.. just making a simple avatar outfit. prison suki would be nice, but I don't have the hair anymore since I dyed it black. haha. maybe ty lee's beach outfit? hmmmm

Maybe getting Fire Nation Sokka done this weekend! WOOOOHOOO.
