handholding

Since this is the first Saturday I've had no plans for, I'm going to clean my room, do a shitload of laundry, and head to Hobby Lobby for some poster frames, feathers, beads, and other various things I need costuming-wise. I just bought my Vincent wig, and according to Dana it is very "flow-y" so it'll make me look like a sexier Vincent. I have yet to try it on, but it does feel SO so pretty. I will have to add more bangs and thin it out in some places, but that's easily accomplished.

Found Dana her Project G wig and extensions. Just a little altering and it should be perfect. She also decided that she wanted a Merveille wig, so we found one for that as well. We may need to do some sharpie-ing and more snip-snip and styling, but it's not too bad. God bless Heads n Threads. Really. I love that store like nobody's business. Their wigs are so amazingly priced. Almost everything in there is $20. But now I need to find those natural looking dread hair extensions for Black Stone. eBay loses this time. Boo.

So, I just learned about this new convention called Phoenix Rises set to be in New Orleans next year ... and it's prepared by the same people that ran The Witching Hour ... which was also the people who ran Nimbus and who are going to run Lumos ... so, does that mean the Midwest bid for 2007's con is finished? Meaning, no hoping to bid for Chicago to host a con? ;_;

I really want them to have a HP con at the Hyatt and Steven's Convention center. That would just rock my socks off. I know that area well, there's little to no traveling involved. Perfect.

Man, I was going to go to Hobby Lobby today and look for cosplay things. But damn procrastination had me putting it off until it was too late. I can't go tomorrow after work, because it's closed on Sundays. Man, I really wanted to get more poster frames, beads, and foamie to start making the little bits to my various costumes.

I've thought about getting a dry erase board or a cork board to put up in my 'sewing' room and start tacking up pictures of costumes and writing check lists. Just to get more organized about this very, very busy cosplaying season I'm about to start. At last count, I figured about 10 costumes to make before July. I'm including costumes I'm helping to make, so the number might be a little inflated.
