Still not that much of interest going on here. I’ve been working a bit on cleaning and organizing. And I’ve gotten back to the cross stitch piece I was working on last summer. Went book shopping last week since Borders is liquidating and picked up a bunch of crafting/sewing related mysteries. (Really disappointed to see Borders go since it was the most convenient place for me to buy books locally and had better sales; although there are more Barnes & Noble stores around the city, they’re further out of the way compared to the places I usually go in the city) Some of the older series I was reading have slowed down or ended and it’s been quite a while since I’ve really started following any new mystery series so I’m trying some more recent ones out.

21. Show us your best cosplay derp photo!
Nearly forgot about this one. XD; She’s not in the pic but I blame [ profile] novaraven for this!

22. Have you worn cosplay in a regular situation? (eg. at school, to work)
Hmm… Not really. Generally, I only wear my costumes at cons and events, to do photoshoots, and for Halloween. I’ve worn my Chinese dress for Count D’s sister to a few wedding receptions since it’s nice enough but obviously without the wig and contacts.

23. Your most expensive cosplay
My 19th Century Count D costume. Lots of fabrics, beads, two pairs of prescription color contacts to do the mismatched eyes, and even more fabric and tons of thread for the phoenix.

24. Your most comfortable cosplay and most uncomfortable cosplay
I guess most comfortable would be the Tohru sundress I made years ago. I only had clip-in bangs instead of a full wig and the rest of the costume was pretty casual.

As for uncomfortable, many of my costumes are to some extent since I make so many long layered things that are awful for summer. ^_^;;; Not sure if any of them stands out from the others in terms of being much more uncomfortable.

25. The cosplay you put the most effort into
Hmm… After all these years, I still don’t think anything has beat my formal Terra from FFIV in terms of hours. I handstitched all the flowers on the dress from loose sequins and did beaded trim on my scarves so there’s 200+ hours of work on it. I redid a couple of the scarves after this photo though.
