Festival, Job, Cosplay, what else?

More of the same, really. EXCEPT FOR THIS
Massive ears are massive, but hey it's only a test shot. If you're a fan of Dragon Age 2 you may recognize that this vaguely resembles Merrill. She is my new cosplay endeavor and I wish I had more time to work on her.

So far I have most of the patterns drafted, the wig is styled and I just need to not be so busy so I can actually get some work done on the costume.

And don't worry, I haven't forgotten about my Leliana. She's still in-the-works, I'll have her finished soon enough.

In other news, the festival is going well, I have 3 weekends to go AND I just started my fancy new part time job at Tandy Leather Factory. Overwhelmed FTW

I need to get off the computer now, eat something and go to my Kung Fu class. Hopefully I'll have enough energy when I get home to finish restocking for this weekend. We'll see.

Until next time readers, remember this: "Thinking takes too long" -- It's one of the best quotes my Kung Fu teacher said to me about fighting (and life in general I suppose)

One down, Seven to go!

Well, the first weekend of the festival is over, and as usual it was tons of fun! My new location seems to be working out quite well, though I only have one neighbor on one side...the other side is the privies! haha I made a good bit of money, especially considering it was the first weekend and I actually had enough stock to where I'm not scrambling all this week to make new things.

I already met an awesome lady for whom I might be making some armour ^^ she also agreed to draw me some concept art for armour in the future!! That said, I've been designing my own armour pieces the past few days and I have to say, it's a lot more trouble than I thought it would be lol I'm afraid it's going to just end up looking like a corset, so I'm being careful not to design it in a corsety way (if that makes sense)

I have a few more ideas up my sleeves and when I find something that works I'll definitely post pictures. Until then, send positive armour making energies my way!
