Gotta pick up some dark red/burgundy paint tomorrow. I was going to use the pleather for the red stripes but it didn’t work out and I have to leave for work soon. So much work >.
Wow. I just had one of the most annoying customers today.
I had a woman who wanted to return a couple of items and I ask “do you have the card ending in ####?” After looking through all of her cards, she says no, that it expired. I told her that I could not do the return without that card (as is the policy with every store I have ever worked for or shopped at).
She then wants me to put it on another card as it goes to the same account and I told her I could not do that and she demanded I call my manager. I said I could try but there would be no guarantee he would answer as today was his personal day off. He did answer and said all we could do is store credit and the woman (despite telling me she has spent hundreds of dollars at the store and is always in) she absolutely did NOT want store credit (which I thought was really odd, especially after claiming she is in here and purchasing quite often).
She then goes to tell me that my computer system would accept the return without the card because she worked for some company for however many years and was saying that what I was telling her wasn’t the truth.
I frequently apologised for the inconvenience, but our system cannot perform a return without the card. I told her I could give her the customer service number as she would have to go through them (because I physically could not return the items without the original means of purchase) and she did not want customer service.
It was several minutes of her telling me I wasn’t being truthful and that she had never heard of a store not being able to return an item under these circumstances and then she’s all “so you expect me to not cut up my expired card?” Well yes. Whenever my cards expire, I keep them until after my last purchase on that card cannot be returned for reasons such as this and I would first go through my bank to see what could be done. No big deal.
THEN she says “if I call home and give you the card information you can do the return.” And I told her no because I need the card here. AND IF SHE CUT THE CARD UP THEN HOW CAN SHE GET THAT INFO FROM HOME?!
Things did not add up with her.
Finally she just asked for the customer service number, my name and my managers name and ASKED IF SHE COULD LEAVE HER BAG HERE WITH THE ITEMS IN IT! I told her no, I can’t do that. She was telling me how she would never set foot in the store again and I said. “That’s alright. That’s perfectly fine, but I can’t physically do this return for you.”
She was just so nasty, telling me how what I was saying wasn’t true (when it is - no store would accept a return without the original means of payment)
I mean really? REALLY?! I was so appalled by how stupid and unrealistic she was being.
I’ve added many layers of gesso and initially filled the large gap of the darts with glue but I still couldn’t get it to conceal fully and I just don’t have the time to try and fill it in any more so this is the best it’s going to get… I’ll just have to photoshop it out @.@
Started working on a little bit of sif again. I finished painting the armour I already had made and added snaps to the bodice/collar :)
I’m still pretty tired and wanting to relax so I will just do little bits at a time…
I think, when I return to the US, all of my cosplays will be from a Tales game…
So I will make a list and think about it for a year lol
But so far…

As much as I want to go to MCM London Expo, it doesn’t look like I will be going because I can’t find anyone else who is going and I can’t afford a hotel room for myself. :(
Just a thought when working on my costume and how I am going to piece things together… I realised that
Cosplays aren’t always conventional.
I did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge as Princess Neptune!
What if your instinct is really yourself from another time telling you whether or not you should do something? You cannot see this other you for you can only sense it…and that is what influences your decision.
