This = TEH BIZZOMB. I can't wait to fuss over it in character. "I believe that your beauty eclipses mine!"

Can't sleep costume will eat me can't sleep costume will eat me I can't believe how much painting I can do in a single day and I'm in that crazy yet serene mode where I can just constantly rotate between stuff and progress happens. I'm amazing myself with my newfound ability to sleep very little and work out intensely at the same time. I'm currently focusing on painting my claws and they will be done tomorrow. I wanted to get them done tonight, but there's just too many layers of paint that have to dry in between application. Let's see...one of Randy's leg armor pieces is fully riveted and I think the overall effect is worth the hell we went through with the materials. His arm guards are in progress and easy. I can't figure out what else I want to put on the cape (every reference I have of the upper designs is incomprehensible), so the splatters will stay for now. I started sewing my waist sashes together. In my admittedly biased opinion, they're fucking gorgeous, even without the purple cover for the sash core. Too bad my standard female waist/hip differential makes them poof out and gives away my gender, but they do look w00t. I think it's time for another layer of paint.

Wow...that is quite similar. I didn't have time to look at both outfits in detail, but I can see why you thought the dress may have been made by that tailor. The fabric choices are identical, and various fussy details are the same (for instance, the gold trim down the front has three equal sections in both dresses). The neck brooches are differently shaped, though. In her gallery, the cosplayer mentioned something about the help of her friend and an awesome sewing machine. It wouldn't surprise me if the friend happened to be that same commissioner and gave her a hand. Or, as aitai suggested, she may have used those pictures as a reference. Maybe I'll take a closer look if I get bored after the con. =P

I understand wanting to avoid the Noid con. It is insane, and if you aren't particularly interested in going, it's probably much more annoying than fun. Our original DW group fell apart, but a bunch of our friends are going, so even if I didn't manage to get the costumes working, we'd go just to see stuff and hang out with them. Looking at cosplay galleries online just isn't the same as wandering around a ginormous con PACKED with them. I love going nuts over everything in person.

We're going on Thursday afternoon to pick up our registration. The DW gathering is on Friday at 1, so we definitely don't want to have to wait in line before then. (And our hotel is 10 blocks away and it will take a while to get ready. Wee.) I'll be sure to post pictures, and because the gathering is on Eurobeat King's list, I'm sure he'll have a bunch of good ones to share as well.
