Since the forums are still a bit slow and there aren't many topics out yet that facilitate multiple responses, I figured this may help.
Post your general cosplay update. What have you been up to in the cosplay/otaku world?

Doing planning for my Meta Knight cosplay. I really should be close to done and jus thave alterations left, but here I am. My goal is to have the build basically done in two weeks so I can spend the following two weeks fine tuning it. I know that's a mad dash, but that's the only way I get things done.

Currently con crunching Collei from the genshin manga, for a convention that I have in less than a week. I had hoped to have her done earlier, but she proved to be more annoying than I had anticipated. After that though, I am getting back to Vi from arcane, for a competition in November, and, if I have the time to pull it off, Il Dottores harbinger coat from the new trailer!

Was gonna attend SacAnime this weekend, but skipped due to the massive heat. Next con is likely SacAnime Winter and my lineup for it isn't finalized but the cosplays I'm bringing for sure are Mabel from Gravity Falls, Huaisang Nie from Mo Dao Zu Shi, and hopefully Genesis from FFVII Crisis Core!

I'm still working on Aloy (Banuk Ice Hunter) and Leafeon (Valkyrie).

My most recent costume was finishing my BLU Soldier (Team Fortress 2) after thirteen years. I have worn it to a couple of photoshoots. Lately I have been working on upgrades to my Willy Wonka (Tim Burton version) costume and cane. I have all the supplies to expand my stormtrooper armor so I can wear it again, I just need to get off my butt and do it. I also want to start work on my Pink Ninjetti Ranger (Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie) now that I figured out an easy way to sew the bottom layer.

I finished sewing a version of card captor sakura for a friend a few months ago. I plan to fix my old cosplays, perhaps starting from Allen walker by D. Gray-man and devote myself to new Kingdom Hearts projects!

Well now I *might* be adding Anakin Skywalker to my SacWinter lineup since I have pretty much all the materials I need to make him, but we shall see!

Fiddling with these articulated wings. Just cannot get a good connection yet also allow the cord and a smooth and easy motion. Probably going to go back to the original method. But tomorrow's plan is to cut out all my fabric patterns and potentially the fabric itself, and if I'm feeling REALLY motivated, do some more trim work on the armor. Also need to print my chestplate pattern out.

Underestimated how big this cape is going to be. Literally 20 yards of fabric going into it.

I successfully finished my Collei cosplay in time for the convention (with some terrible con crunch, but nevermind that), and I am so proud of it! I will probably post pictures of her soon, but I am having some technical difficulties with the photos. Really excited to start working on Vi and Dottore, I've just ordered wigs for both of them, and just started the patterning for Vi which is going surprisingly well! Super excited for my con in November and getting to go back on stage again!

Made a spur of the moment Joann's trip a couple days ago and found brown pleather in the remnants section that's perfect for Anakin's belt so I started that, also started working on him beforehand. xD

A bit frustrated that I can only have the motivation for maybe an hour of cosplay progress per day. Really don't want to get to the real con crunch this time around. I ended up buying the wing base and I'll alter from there, though I honestly wanted to make them myself. I gotta return these pulleys I was going to use for it, since that's $14 just for the pair. The cape is absolutely beautiful and I still need to do the trim and applique. After than the tunic and basically all of the armor...in two weeks.
