Current Projects!

I'll be moving to Missouri in just a few weeks now. I've got an entire semester of make-up and costuming between me and the next con, and yet...its the convention I've got my mind most acutely locked on. Sure, I've got a nine hour drive, delicate packing, school work I have to concentrate on and at least one theatre production to do before it...but somehow...I can't help but scheme and plan that con before I even begin to think about homework.
Perhaps that's a good thing though...settling things now means I can steadily work away until the convention...with lots of time to actually do my schoolwork. xD;;;

So for the convention we've got a few planned groups...and few maybe groups.
One for sure is My Little Pony:  Friendship is Magic. Yes, I know at first glance taht's...odd. But its a hilarious show and I'm effin' excited, yo! xD

I'll be bringing a humanized version of Scootaloo, and I'll be joined by my best friend Kaasan as Sweetie Belle, and our adorable Grell as Applebloom. Together, we will be the CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS.

Our plan is for all ponies to have latex ears matching the color of the ponies' hides and tails made out of wig hair to match the wigs on our heads. :D Sweetie Belle will also have a horn, and I will have a set of orange wings. Our outfits will vary...we haven't fully decided who'll get what.
We'll also be joined by Dr. Whooves. 

Shortstuff will be taking part as our good Dr., as he apparently already looks like David Tennant. xD; I personally wouldn't know, unfortunately, as I've never seen any Dr. Who episodes with him in it! Thanks to this though, I'll probably have to get into it. ;] The plan for Dr. Whooves is to mimic Dr. Who's basic, normal outfit...but not replicate it. We'll have Dr. Whooves's cutie mark on his pants as well as on his overcoat. Its gonna be pretty flippin' epic. Just sayin.

Aside from MLP:  FIM, our little gang has decided to do a different version of Black Butler. We plan on doing a "cute" version, as though Elizabeth had gotten her fingers on everything again. xD Included in this group will be a Lizzified Ciel, Lizzified Grell, Lizzified Madam Red, Lizzified Undertaker, and possibly a few others. We're still not sure entirely of who all will be joining in.
I'll also be working on a Soul Evans from Soul Eater, if only to escort and help Kaasan wander around as Excalibur. There is talk of an Alice in Wonderland group, in which I'd be the Jabberwock, but that's very much in the air right now. I'm not really sure who is doing what, or when, or whether or not its even for this con. oxo;

What I'm probably most excited about, however, isn't actually a group cosplay. I plan on making Rin Okumura from Blue Exorcist.

I'm not entirely sure which version of him I'll be doing...but I'm hoping to be able to make the full, released version. Unfortunately I'd need a lot of help for that one, so its still very much up in the air. If I do the full version I will definitely use a lot of LEDs. I'm determined to make one that actually glows. No matter which I choose, however, there will definitely be a tail. I'm already working out the mechanics for one that'll hopefully move a bit!
Whether it will be a "OMG WHOA" movement or "ha dats kewl" movement..I'm not sure. either way I'll be pleased though! Rin's one of my favorites of all time, so its exciting. ;D

Anyways...stick around and watch me wriggle my way through my first animatronic tail, yo! xD

Jack over and out~
