Buckles!

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 11, 2014, 11:37 PM
I still am not sure how it's the year 2014, much less three months into it! It's been a busy, crazy but good time. I have been Pokemonning and the book I've long been waiting for, the second in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive series, Words of Radiance just came out. I've had a very difficult time putting this book down, it will be over far too soon.

Speaking of far too soon, it's already time to start looking forward to the summer, when I will be all costumed out. Labyrinth Ball falls so close to Comic-Con and I always find myself scrambling to have costumes ready for both events. I've long been gathering materials and getting ready for these, but one particular piece for one of my costumes continues to elude me. I figured I would give a shout out to see if anyone well versed in ordering items like this may have a clue. It's a long shot, but hey, a girl can dream.

Buckle by damphyr

I am looking for something very close to this. A metal side release buckle with the little wing releases, not the push-in-the-sides kind. I know, it looks very similar to the plastic backpack/dog collar buckles that are cheap and everywhere... I am a crazy person and am not satisfied with those. I am after both metal and this kind of shape. Just to make things extra tricky, I really want these buckles in black or a very dark, brushed/not glossy metal, and most everywhere seems to want me to buy at least 500 of them. I need... three. :XD:

I've found some similar, but more complex and pricy ones made by Cobra, which I may resort to. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, my Google-fu has failed me, and you may be my only hope!

Anyone else working on costumes/cosplays? I may be considering attempting contacts this summer, for the first time. I've never been able to get them in before, so we'll see. :fear: I'm such a wuss when it comes to putting things in my eyes. I need to decide soonish, because I need to make an appointment with my optometrist if I decide to attempt it. What big costume/cosplay challenges have you faced?

I found, with shockingly little effort, so much of this costume... and yet these little tiny buckles are doing me in! :shakefist: Such is my life. :XD:

It's the little details that really make or break a costume! You'll find 'em. I haz the faith.

It really is. Maybe it doesn't matter in a passing glance or up on stage, but if you're up close or taking a picture and something's cheap or really clearly inaccurate, it just looks bad. Determined to do this correctly! Muahahaha!
