I think Living Dead Clothing missed the mark on the Evangelion plugsuit designs. The alignment of the lines from the hip to crotch should look like a leotard.... not like swollen labia. Ya know?

I dug through my livejournal searching for old photos from 2006. Apparently I don't really take normal photos of myself unless I've dyed my hair. All the rest of my photos are usually cosplay. XD



So I did a cosplay comparison set too.

Starting cutting out EVA Foam and it went horrible. I've never worked with this before, ugh. I don't think this prop is going to turn out very good. Looks like I need to buy a whole bunch of new knives because the ones I have are making the edges all jagged. My hands are also pink because apparently sharpie marker guidelines rub off really easily when drawn onto foam. So that ends that plan for today. I'll see if I can buy a load of cheap knives from Daiso when I'm in the city tomorrow.

Yesterday I bought some pink eyeliner by Too Faced which I'll use for the triangles on D.Va's face. I cut the wig fringe over the weekend so maybe ill just do a makeup test later.

These 2 orders arrived really fast! My previous purchases with Aliexpress have taken a while to arrive so I made sure to order my wig and cosplay early to allow them time to arrive before PAX. Very happy with the suit, quickly tried it on and fits nice.




If you're looking to get your own D.Va suit I recommend this seller!

And time for the bad news of my day, it's raining all this week and the windscreen wipers on my car are not working properly! Might have to get the motor that controls them replaced. No idea how much that costs but it's never cheap.

Last night coming home from work was dodgy. I had to pullover on the side of the road and was wondering what to do since I couldn't see shit. The rain eased up a little so I decied to slowly drive a bit further down the road to the petrol station and wait for the rain to totally stop. Then on the way there, they magically started working and I drove home ok but kept to burwood highway instead of the freeway.

I was supposed to go into Tru-Blu today to work but again the windscreen wipers aren't working and it's raining pretty hard. I've called up Nissan servicing and they will have a look at my car this afternoon for me. I'm glad they can have a look today but if they need to order parts then I might have to take it back another day. Hopefully it will be fixed by the end of this week. *fingers crossed!* Luckily Nissan is only a short drive away, so I can make it there ok if they decide to not work when I turn my car on again.

I haven't been really excited for cosplay in a while because I'm not particularly obsessed with any new characters. That and the exchange rate is fucking horrible right now, so any characters I sort of like, aren't that appealing when I have to add 30% on top of the price of the costume, wigs etc. Which is just uggghhhh no.

I am trying to save money this year but I haven't really saved anything, but I have paid off a chunk of my credit card so that's a plus. So at least I'm saving money on interest fees.

I might go to OzComicCon with Ethan... will probably just wear whatever costumes in my cupboard. Not like I don't have any XD

I'll be working at Sydney Supanova and Perth Supanova in a few weeks. Already stressed. This stupid box factory stuffed our order up so now we gotta do all this extra shit to have them pick it up, fix it, then deliver it again.
