Still working on my new costume, which as [livejournal.com profile] ryoko and [livejournal.com profile] appaku guessed last time, is the jellyfish dress from Princess Jellyfish. I never thought I’d end up making a costume that involved tentacles… XD; I watched the series a while back on the Funimation site and liked it. I’ve wanted to make a ruffly cosplay for quite a while. But I’ve just never found one that I both liked and thought I could pull off since ruffly costumes are more likely to show up on cute younger characters which just wouldn’t work well with my figure. So, when I saw this, I was like, “Hmm, a crossdresser in a ruffly dress? I could do this!”



Trying to finish this for AnimeNext next weekend. I’m also bringing my newer Ryuuren costume to do Saiunkoku with [livejournal.com profile] kitsunesqueak and [livejournal.com profile] neoangelwink. And I haven’t decided what else I’m bringing yet. Glad this will be the last convention for a while since spring was so packed. I don’t think I’m going to anymore this year other than possibly NYCC/NYAF since it’s local.


In other news, I booked tickets for a day trip down to Washington, D.C. during the week following AnimeNext. I’m going to see the Kennedy Center's production of "Follies" which is one of my favorite Sondheim musicals. They did this production especially for the Kennedy Center and it's only playing for about 5 or 6 weeks. The original opened on Broadway in 1971 and I think the only fully staged NY revival was the one 10 years ago, which I saw but don't recall that well. Taking Amtrak in the morning, seeing a matinee, and then taking the train back afterwards.
