I’m also working on rigging up the 3DMG to attach partially with magnets and partially with clips so taking it on and off as needed won’t be as time-consuming, so fingers crossed.
I’m not particularly keen on having to actually physically unbuckle belts and unthread shit from belts if I can avoid it, hahah 8’D
Be working on central gas dispenser for 3DMG, realise I’m out of UHU glue
Well, okay, the hose parts I’m fitting are snug enough that it’s unnecessary for the moment, I can keep cutting things.
Realise I’m out of card.
My first few cosplays were terrible. Each one was made the night before the convention day. I thought “They’re simple. I can do it in no time.” My Friday cosplay (though it was a rather simple) took me from 10pm-5:30am. My Saturday cosplay; 10pm-4am. Both fell apart by the end of the day. My Sunday cosplay never even happened because I didn’t have time to even finish the shirt. By the way, I had to wake up no later than 7am to get to the con.
Pulling all-nighters on a cosplay is not a great idea. It is very unlikely you will have time to add important details when you rush the construction of a prop or outfit. You’ll attend the con exhausted from the lack of sleep and that ruins the fun.
step 1: lay out fabric
Also applies to fashion design students /o/
**REMINDER TO NOT TOUCH COSPLAYERS WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION AND DON’T ASK FOR PICTURES WHEN THEY’RE EATING**
