On the plus side… I finished most of that silly Kimono last night.

On the down side… I broke my machine’s needle working on the matching obi tonight.

*sigh* I suppose it’s off to the store tomorrow to buy some needles now.

I am going to have to re-evaluate the necessity of boning in an obi band.

I have discovered that I have a great love for creating cosplay outfits.

For those of you who don’t know cosplay is short for ‘costume play’, and is done in a wide variety of ways and for many reasons (mostly just because it is fun though). I have partaken in the enjoyment of cosplaying several times now, but for the first time this July I will be entering a contest. Needless to say, I am a little nervous.

For now I will leave you with some pictures, because they’re worth a 1000 words, right?

This is the previously mentioned Kimono... I love the fabric that was chosen for this piece.

Good. That’s a good length post.

So, get out there… find something you want to do and do it!

Enjoy the heck out of life!
