My wig dye came today! I no longer have to worry about going to Otakon as a blonde Flea!

Mom and I are gonna go shopping for more costume material today. Can't wait!

Only 3 weeks until Otakon! EEK!

Anyway, hell week at work is over for me; I had the day off yesterday because the company is moving to a new building, so there wasn't anything for me to scan. It was the scanning that was getting really stressful; jam sessions and screwy computers kept slowing me down. And driving me closer and closer to insanity. Top it off with broken AC and whaddya get? A very very frustrated Saria-chan -_-.

But hopefully once we're settled and I go back into work on Monday, the pressure will be off and everything will get back to its regular, dullsville streak.

Hero of the day next two months
[ profile] john_tangent: For saving me over $600 by giving me a room that's safer and no doubt comfier than any hotel in the Baltimore area.

Thanks to him, Mom is feeling much better about me going to Otakon, so now I am pre-registered and ready to start working on my costume!

Things to do to get ready for making the costume;

1. Cash my paycheck(s)
2. Order wig and wig dye
3. Take the bus to...
Joanne Fabrics, for...
- a new bobbin
- pink thread?
- patterns for a cape and blouse
The mall, for.....
- shoes
- belt
- gloves
- Genie Lamp?

the finished hankie the finished hankie

All stitched up and washed in strawberry shampoo to give it a nice sweet scent
skirt material skirt material

comfy, stretchy, and rather cool to the touch when it hasn't been used.
top material top material

this has to be double-layered because it's transparently thin. Hopefully it'll be cool because it's so thin and light. I have a lot of it too, so it's good to make use of.
cape material cape material

this is where it gets really hot. This fabric is a little heavy. But it's the right size to make a cape.
glove material glove material

again, stretchy and comfortable, and the right size in finger-elbow length.
trim trim

nothing really to see here. just the trim for the various pieces of the costume

As for the costume itself, I just got a bigass jam out of the sewing machine, and I need another bobbin to hold pink thread. Also, I may have already screwed up my first glove. Well, worst comes to worst, I suppose I could use the leftover fabric for the skirt, which just needs trim and to be sewn together. And if that doesn't work...I'll go out to the mall and look for some gloves while looking for shoes and a belt.

Think I can do it in 6 weeks?
sagesaria: (Flea: Mighty Sorcerer...or Sorceress?)
So I'm almost ready to start stitching my costume together, but the issue of a wig was left undone. But somebody on [ profile] chronotrigger told me about a forum where I can keep updated on news for the Chrono Trigger photo shoot at Otakon. Generally a good site for meeting cosplayers, planning photo shoots, and getting good advice for production of costumes. The site also has some wigs for sale. One problem; I'd still have to dye it. What to I ask the forum if they know where to find dye in the color I need. Somebody showed me a website that sold wig dye. And guess what? They have my color!!!

Must remember to call [ profile] nandarou_life, [ profile] mathaeus, and [ profile] keith_m043 to make plans for a room at the con. Then I must pre-register! Which of course means that Mom and I must go out and cash my check!

Woke up later than usual. Took a shower and tried to figure out how to get to school on time without waking my parents up. I ended up taking Mom's car. When I got there, I took the car back home (by remote control?).

Dad screamed at me because I got up at 3 AM

At a convention. Spent a whole day there without registering. I finally decided to register, but I did't have money. Dad tried to see if I could get a free registration.

Something about The Sims.

*reads through* Wow! My life is so pathetic even my subconscious is laughing at me!

Woke up with Magus's theme from Chrono Trigger playing on the computer.

I'm feeling MUUUUUUCH better now, and I bet you all wanna know why!

[ profile] maugorn came for my guitar lesson today, and he brought an early birthday card from his mother in Germany. Inside the card...


A check for $50!

You know what this means?


Looks like we really will be meeting in person, [ profile] cellophanefuji! Yaaaaaay!

I was lazy once again and didn't post yesterday.

Although the only things I remember wanting to talk about are that the stiffness/soreness in my legs is completely gone now, and that the stir fry we (yes! We! I was part of it!) made was really yummy. A little spicy, but yummy. I ate everything that was in it except the onions! And it had things that I normally don't like, like carrots and tomatoes!

I now know how to listen to phone posts! Yay! I'm thinking of signing my phone up so that I can post when I'm at a convention and I have a dream I want to post or something like that. First I have to remember what my # is...LOL

By the way, I'm not going to Katsucon :( Mom said that I had a choice between Katsucon or laser tag for my birthday, and I already promised people a laser tag birthday party. So if anyone's going, hope you have fun without me!

Don't worry, [ profile] cellophanefuji, we'll meet in person someday :/

Took the Biology HSA, hand has stopped hurting from the writing, 'nuff said.

We'll be dissecting rats next Tuesday :( Poor little critters.

That's all that was truly interesting, let's see....what can I babble about to cover my pitiful journal entry....

OMG! Mom's so...RED!!!! (

Tut tut...looks like rain...(That's what it looked like this morning too. No clue if it will actually rain)

I have to walk through the cicadas both ways again tomorrow >_< Well, Corey will be at school, so maybe it won't be so bad.

Balticon's almost here! WHEEEE!!!!!

Summer countdown update: 19 days until summer vacation

The HSAs have started! EEEEEEK!!!!

Corey pounced on Bobby for me. That's another senior checked off the list :)

Almost time for Balticon! Wheeeee!!!!

Summer countdown update: 21 days until summer vacation
sagesaria: (Whee!)
I thought I wasn't going at first, but Rowan is apparently going and invited me :D

Unfortunately, I won't have a costume...unless I can quickly slap together some clothes and tie my hair back and go as a pseudo-cosplay of Chihiro...*sweatdrop*

Wow! First one I've remembered so well in a while! Anyway....

I was playing Dance Dance Revolution. Although it didn't really seem like Dance Dance Revolution. It was like some weird game that had DDR and Hey You, Pikachu! combined. It was hard to find out how to play the DDR part. When I did figure it out, the pad I was playing on was really tiny, about the size of a waffle iron, and about as high up as an aerobics bench. When I played, the arrows were going by really slowly, and then the machine kept telling me that I was missing steps even though there weren't any. I think this was at a convention, 'cause in between rounds I kept running out to some parking lot and getting things out of the car. My parents kept yelling at me for it.
