Ambitious is not usually a term I use to describe myself -- I don't have much in the way of career goals, and I've never been able to answer that whole "Where do you see your self in 5/10/20 years?" question. (When inevitably asked by students come interview time, what is your dream?, I totally bullshit about whatever topic they'll actually understand my answer for. Recently, becoming a fashion designer.)

But I'm coming to realize that in a few areas of my life, I actually do have ambition -- but I lack the drive to back it up. One is my long-term interest in small to mid-scale exportation of goods, despite recent setbacks with #fanservices. The other, as you're probably sick of hearing me blather on about, is cosplay.

I'm not a very good cosplayer. I mean, I have standards, but I don't have terribly much experience with proper garment and prop construction, and I procrastinate so badly that I'm very rushed for time before presentation at events. This blog post is one of those procrastination tools -- I'm supposed to be constructing a Captain America cosplay right now, for an event in two weeks. Guess who hasn't started cutting/sewing? Fortunately, Castiel is wearable, minus shoes and possible wig changes, so I won't be without a costume.

Yeah, I like to play dress up (and the prestige of not buying a ready-made costume) so much more than actually making it.

My wishlist for cosplay keeps growing longer and longer, not helped at all with the fact I'm apparently working on obtaining /all/ of Tony Stark's wardrobe, or at least off-the-rack imitations thereof. (My next post here will be all the reference shots I'm using -- if anyone else can make use of it, since I have yet to find any posts focusing on the non-battle-suits of those movies elsewhere...)

List of characters off the top of my head:

...am noticing the tendency towards desiring to cosplay both characters in a pairing I like. ^^;; There's definitely a ton more I'm leaving off the list, but I'll have to add them in later.

Waaaaaay too fucking lazy to go through the pix individually right now, so embedding the albums instead! Only two processed so far, more to come later.
