Found the wig for my Andorian costume today.



I need a wig brush because it needs some serious styling. It's super cheap, and the bangs are super annoying, but it'll do.

Now all that's left is to buy some blue paint (I have to go downtown to the Norcostco for that, so probably next week sometime), sculpt the antennae (I've got the model magic and wire for them though), and alter the dress which is way too big for me right now.

I'm considering getting blue contacts as well, but I've never worn contacts so I dunno. We'll see. I look pretty weird with white hair and my natural coloring though.

Anyway, wigs are fun but damn it's hot under there!

I've been watching SyFy's The Heroes of Cosplay and it's bringing back my desire to costume full force. I don't want to compete, and I don't have time to make more than one awesome costume a year. I've decided that next year I will be going back to Dragoncon and I will be dressed most awesomely. I've already started brainstorming ideas.

It didn't help that I was in JoAnn's this morning getting Ruggle supplies and everyone else in there was getting last minute things for D*con. Met a very nice lady from VA who costumes for a living. She and her husband will be entering the Masquerade tomorrow night as steampunk gargoyles, complete with 186" wingspans. I helped her with directions to Norcostco.

I was invited to go this year with my Dad and sister, but I think Erik is still a bit too young. Not too young really, but more the problem that he flees into crowds willy nilly and this makes for a very unhappy mother wolffe. Next year I'm hoping he will have matured enough to mind when I tell him to stay close.

To ease the itch this year I've decided to make a costume to debut at our Halloween party. I have no idea what at the moment, but as I said before I'm brainstorming.

I've been surfing DA again and I find that I want to go to a furry convention. The craftsmanship on some of the fursuits is amazing. I stumbled on girl named Beetlecat. The work she does is AMAZING. Look at this:

and this:

She also made these My Little Pony mods of WoW druid cat forms:

I'd pay convention ticket prices to see this kind of costuming up close. Gah. There are some seriously talented people out there.

I need to get skinny so I can sew and wear all the fabulous things I want from old movies. I was watching Rear Window last night and drooling over Grace Kelly's clothes. Especially this black and white dress:



and this pleated skirt black dress:



And why aren't there any really good pictures of those online? And why can't 40's & 50's style come back in a big way?

I have 24 ghosts who have taken up residence in the maple tree, with a small graveyard below. Two jack-o-lanterns glowing on the front porch and a ton of decorations inside. The boy's costume is mostly done and I'll spend tomorrow prepping what I can for the party.

The only drawback is that I didn't dodge the cold bullet and my tonsil is so swollen I feel like I've swallowed a golf ball. Other than that everything's great. LOL
