Went shopping over the weekend but didn’t buy much. The most interesting thing I got was probably some chili-flavored Lindt chocolate. Ever since I first saw it, I’d been a bit curious what that would taste like so I finally got a bar. It tastes pretty much like normal dark chocolate at first but leaves a spicy aftertaste.

My brother has been pretty busy with school lately so he’s still working on Katsucon pictures. Here’s the other one of my Count D costume. This took a ridiculous number of tries since my wig kept poking out in odd ways and I was being picky about it. ^_^;;;


Anime Boston is in 2 1/2 weeks and Costume Con in 3 1/2 weeks so this month is going to be somewhat crazy. Plus, trying to fit in Saiunkoku cherry blossom pictures with [livejournal.com profile] neoangelwink and [livejournal.com profile] athena_chan sometime. It looks like it’s going to be tricky since AB and CC weekends are probably when the blossoms will be open. We’ll all be out of town for AB and although they’ll be at the garden for Sakura Matsuri, I’ll be at Costume Con. :-/ Last year, it was so warm that the trees hit peak bloom 2 weeks before the festival but that looks unlikely this year. From checking the garden’s cherry blossom status map, only a handful of trees have started to bloom. I know from past years that the trees around the pond tend to hit peak before the trees in the main area start to bloom so I doubt the trees will hit full bloom before AB weekend.

But first, I need to finish up my new Ryuuren costume. Currently working on the vest. Still need to do the sash, accessories, and boots. Plus, figure out hair after the clip-in ponytail I ordered arrives.

And at this point, I’ve pretty much given up on the idea of trying to do anything to fit the Broadway theme for Costume Con. I love musicals but I just couldn’t come up with anything I especially wanted to make that wouldn’t have required much more money and time than I’d be willing to spend on a costume I might not have a good opportunity to wear again. :-/ There are a lot of musicals that I love for the music or the entire production but out of those, there aren’t many individual characters I love and would want to cosplay as. I thought about doing Polly’s white gown from the finale of “Crazy for You” but it was a huge circle skirt trimmed with ostrich feathers all around the hem and it would have cost hundreds for the feather trim alone. x_x I didn’t really want to crossplay for this either considering I already do so many guy characters for anime/manga or I might have considered Sir Percy because I love The Scarlet Pimpernel.
