Otakon to-do list:
-add beading to Elizabeth's dress and sew piece back on
-Fix Shiki necklace
-print reference images/release forms/press info
-Ferio pants - remake or fix up
-find Ferio long sleeve shirt

At the beginning of the month I figured I would be scrambling at the end to finish. Hard to believe I'm going to finish in time and won't have to worry about too much.

25. The cosplay you put the most effort into

I would definitely have to say the Fai coat falls into this category. So many hours went into it and it was just back breaking at times to paint and sew. Cain would probably be the number one though since I was teaching myself so many different techniques. I used resin for the first time so I spent time creating crosses and clasps out of model magic and sculpy, then spent the time to create the molds and then pouring the resin. There are a lot of little clasp things on the coat that I had to do one at a time and then had to do a front and back to so that was very time consuming. Then there was learning to use wonderflex and figuring out what shapes to make the fingers and the armor in order to get it to look the way I wanted it to. And there were was the weeks I spent in the barn creating the pully system for the wing and then gluing feathers. Cain was definitely a labor of love and I still consider remaking it and starting over since it was a costume I did before I was really ready to tackle a project like that. And then I think about how much effort that would take and it makes me want to fall over LOL.

And then there is my current project which shall not be named that i have spent countless hours cutting, planning, gluing, reworking, painting, and just generally scratching my head over going..."how in the hell am I going to make that work?"
