So, apparently I cannot be relied upon to regularly blog, like many other things in my life (you don't call, you don't write...). I am trying to post semi-regularly on Twitter, but that's easier to do from my phone than, say, encode a full links post. Sigh.

Next weekend is Tokyo Game Show -- yes, another convention -- and I won tickets for it! Woot! I'll be cosplaying Perrine-H. Clostermann of Strike Witches. No, I've never watched the show, though apparently it involves flying magical catgirls based loosely on old military aircraft. With no pants.


But a friend is cosplaying Mio Sakamoto from the same series, and thus, I have a cosplay partner! I really miss doing group cosplay. When I went to cons stateside, I would usually work on a group costume with my friends or the extended UF campus cosplay group, and it makes for much more amusing photoshoots.

I still need to make Perrine's jacket/dress-thing. I've been putting it off because, well, that's what I do, and I'm afraid of cutting it wrong or some such. I'm loosely basing it off of a shirt pattern in the recent Gosu Rori mook, but as I'm using a heavier fabric and my waist is a little lower than GR patterns usually draft for.... I miss having my dressform. Things were so much easier then.

Now its time for me to stop faffing about on the [stolen] internet, and get cracking on that costume!
