the cosplay gods

Reach WITH IN To your LOCAL park and you may find A Friend And Boy…

(I did a cosplay test this evening, and I’m feeling pretty good about the results! I’ll be lurking around the con this weekend as this guy and as SCP-049.) 


Hell yeah hell yeah, Aranea is 98% done now. All the armor is fitted and stays on, thank the Cosplay Gods. I’m really insanely happy with it - I think the lesson that I learned is that if I want a cosplay that I’ll be nearly perfectly happy with, I need to spend 2 weeks doing a breakdown of it and then 3 months building it.

Some paint on the bodice is still drying so I can’t do a full test of it tonight, but until tomorrow, here’s a look at the leg pieces and the skirt. For being roughly 3 straight feet of armor down the leg and feet, it’s incredibly comfortable and moves well. None of my movement is locked out by it and it sits at nice spots on the body. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
