Fun fact to go with the completion of Lyn's embroidery: while time consuming I LOVE adding this technique to cosplays. It's a skill that I learned as a kid from my Grandmother, so any opportunity I get to use it I like to for the nostalgia. Although, she also taught me without an embroidery hoop, which makes the task so much more time consuming. 😅
Not sure what I will do on my lunch breaks at work until Fusion, but I will find something until @animefusioncon is upon us.
Pretty productive evening. This is the current state of the Kagome cosplay that will be debuting at @animefusioncon next month. All that is really needed is to add sleeves, hemming, a little bit of fixing to the collar, and finishing of seams. Well, that and minor props. I am super excited for this Inuyasha group!
Now to get some sleep before I spend my morning going to the Allergist.
Finally getting around to those SFS returns.
@sailor_joestar_cosplay is one of the most genuine and kind people I have interacted with on this platform. She genuinely cares about her community and is always a joy to chat with. Some of my favorite of her cosplays are her Sailor Glaceon (pictured), Joseph Joestar, Reimi, and Inigo Montoya. She is so versatile in her work, has amazing poses, and a real love for cosplay. I hope to make it out east for a con in 2020, and you better believe that of we run into each other we will do JoJo poses.
If you are not already following her, go check out her stuff.

It's still Friday, so how about a Fire Emblem Post! It's been a while since I posted anything, let alone of the Lyn photos. Hands down, this is probably one of my favorite cosplays to wear. Feel free to swipe to see the full image.
In other news, it is looking like Azura remake will not be getting done in time for Anime Fusion (@animefusioncon) this year (at least not to the point were I will be happy entering it into the Masquarade). I am sorry guys, but I will get that remake done by Summer 2019. Don't worry, I still plan on participating in the Masquarade at Fusion, it will just be a change to Lyn. Decision is being made for the sake of my health and to really present something that I am happy with and proud of. I hope you all understand.

So, I got home at the end of the night today and checked my resin cases that I did this morning. Are at least soft set, which is less time than I was expecting. I did two casts even though Trish has one gem on her top because I wanted to be able to choose the best one I could.
The base of Trish Una's skirt is painted. Honestly, by the end of this I started to say "all these squares make a circle". It took about 2.5 hours per side of painting and about an hour to plan out my squares. I still need to add the borders of each box, the mathematical operations symbols, and then sew it with the liner and trim. I am really excited to have this cosplay done.
Fabric is Taffeda in a magenta like color, paint is @folkartpaints outdoor gloss acrylic paint in the color Licorice.
ANIME FUSION LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT! So, Sailor Mercury is going to be at Anime Fusion this year in place of Black Lady/Wicked Lady. To those excited to see the debut of my Sailor Moon Villain cosplay, I am sorry by you will have to wait about two weeks longer as she is being pushed back to Youma Con. To all of my friends who will be at Anime Fusion this year, I know a lot of you enjoy this cosplay of mine and having been wanting to see it is person. I will be doing some fixing on her before the con. 📸 @ericaanicole_
