Team USA's blog as we get ready for WCS 2008!
Don't worry, you'll soon be rid of me and my continuous posts.|
theannadoom got the admin of http://www.freshverse.com/tv.php to stream the WCS championships live! That's right ladies and gentlemen - if you so choose, you can find out the outcome same time as us, all for the low low price of waking up at 6AM Central Pacific time, 7AM Eastern time) Sunday, August third.
Edit: Dia and I are the best Umi cosplayers ever
Oh surprise, Sonnya and I are doing the school uniforms because 1)I'm a loser and packed badonkadonk-Umi improperly and the resin got all over everything and I'm too lazy to clean it 2) those stupid costumes take up entire bags by themselves and weigh a billion pounds.
Dudeeeee, call me up, my phone is *somewhere*
I'm thinking about using your pattern for the skirt cause I realized how shitty mine was. derp derp, should be there around 1 AM maybe, or I can bum a ride off of my pops at 5 AM
Pick up your phone, ho. My pattern's a no-go, it's box pleats, and the um...outside? front? whatever you want to call 'em - pleats are huge. Bigger than XBOX huge.
What's wrong with doing a knife pleat?
Aren't they box pleats on Hikaru's?
They are, but I HAET box pleats with a passion. I think I can pull box pleats out of my ass without a pattern though. Pew pew.
Man, it's too bad I don't have any of the art books or character design book in front of me.
And the verdict is....
CLAMP can't make up their damn mind, it's about 50% box pleats, 20% DEFINITELY knife pleats, and the reminder is LOL the skirt is blowing randomly and it looks like knife pleats but someone could argue that they weren't being specific and it doesn't follow proper garment rules anyways oh bugger.
Do whichever will look better, and that you feel more confident on. And will take less time. Don't cut corners but I want you to get some sleep :x
CLAMP hates cosplayers. That's all there is to it.
Oh shi~, I think you just discovered their nefarious plot to make cosplayers everywhere kill themselves out of frustration.
They're a pain in the ass to get even, but you definitely can pull it out of your ass.
Yikes, resin gems can smear? I never knew that. o_o;

See you soon!
Hi Renee and Sonnya, my name is Ed, I help out with the WCS event here in Japan. It's awesome to see you've been documenting things leading up to the event! Keep it going during and after the event too. I will head out to Tokyo on Tuesday so should see you when you come in. Have an enjoyable trip!
How long is the competition and will it reair? I don't think I can do a 5 AM wake up call to watch it. Will try though.
