Cosplay Organization

March 7th, 2017

One of my fears has come true. I did a cosplay photoshoot and forgot a piece of my cosplay. Fortunately, it’s a very minor piece, and I honestly didn’t notice it was missing from the photos until 2 months later. I forgot to wear my blue choker in my Pokemon Go Trainer photos.

Though it’s not a big deal this time around, it is something I am always worried about when wearing cosplay. Every time I go to an out-of-town convention, I start having “did-I-forget-anything” paranoia. Forgetting a cosplay piece is not the same as forgetting something in a normal trip. I mean, if you forget your toothbrush, you can buy another one. You can’t just go out and buy a missing cosplay piece, especially one that you’ve custom-made.

What I’m Up To, #10

November 28th, 2016

I just had a 5-day weekend, which felt nice! We get two days off for Thanksgiving, but with the office so empty on Wednesday, I just took that day off too. Of course, I told myself that I should be productive during those 5 days, and well, it never quite ends up that way, does it?

But! Between playing too many hours of Diablo III and watching Yuri on Ice and Westworld, I managed to spend some time on my hobbies the past couple weeks. (Both shows are sooo good, by the way.) So here’s what I’ve been up to lately!

What I’m Sewing

Before you think, “uh Cat, didn’t you already show us this?”… this is not the same Pokemon Go jacket I posted about on Halloween! I decided to make another one, except I altered the fit, made the stripe on the sleeve thinner, and changed the lining fabric.

Happy Halloween

October 31st, 2016

As the title says, Happy Halloween! I’ll admit that I wasn’t always excited for Halloween, but that changed after I started cosplaying. It gave me another event to make a costume for, and I can take advantage of the Halloween sales at fabric and craft stores. Plus, when people ask me what I’m making, I can say it’s for a costume without feeling weird about it. Wins all around!

And that’s the reason why I took a short break from blogging and blog hopping. I was working on my costume! I saw that my work’s party and my friend’s party were the Friday and Saturday before Halloween, and I realized I miscalculated and had one less weekend than I originally thought. I went into cram mode to finish it up.

If you’ve been following me on social media, you already know what I went as. I’m my trainer in Pokemon Go!
