This group is falling apart...  
Another Otaru replacement dropped out again. I can only hope and pray my little brother can make it to Ushi. I know I can rely on him. If he says he'll do somthing, he's good on his word.
I'm really glad the drop-out let me know that he had absolutely no interest in the project NOW, and not later. At least he was being honest... but really, what's worse?
Someone admitting that they can't help out, or someone SAYING they'll help out just for the sake of agreeing, and then dropping out later? It's like someone giving you somthing really cool that you've always wanted, and then turning around saying they want it back because they changed their mind. This was not the way my parents brought me up, so I guess I have trouble understanding that kind of thing somtimes.

In any case... this is where I feel the group stands:

Integral: Costume is 98% complete. Will be ready.
Mako: Finished with her costume. Has a few things to tweak.
Ringo: Has a lot of work to do, but can most likely get it all done in time.
Our Ieyasu: Not happening. Not enough time.
Our Hanagata: Hasn't even started yet.. may not have the money to.
Our Marine: Not going to happen. There's just not enough time.
Our Otaru: What fucking Otaru? I feel that making that costume has been a SUPREME waste of time. Like hell if I'm putting up ANY fucking money to get that goddamn cotume finished. Shit... I AM GOING TO WEAR IT MY-FUCKING-SELF FOR A DAY JUST SO MY HARD WORK DIDN'T GO TO WASTE. I ruined my favorite pair of pajama pants making that costume.
Other members?: There were going to be others.. but people we had little contact with, so I'm not counting on anything there.

In other words, there is no Sabre J group. There will be one or two individuals in Sabre J costumes, but that does not constitute a group. ARRRRRGH!
I think a certain someone was very right about guys being unreliable flakey bastards.

In more cheerful news, though....
If Goat makes it over, I fully intend to do some fiberglass work today, despite how dog-tired, dissappointed, angry, and frustrated I am.

In one hand.. I am glad the cosplay droup-out was honest.. but overall, I'm very very dissappointed.
Current Mood: disappointeddisappointed

I'm sorry. That's got to be rotten.

Re: thanks

Sorry, I'd have to say "no", since I don't have a clue what the Ushicon is...

But thanks for the costume offer! I have near zero sewing ability!

The SaberJ costumes are cursed. >_<

It's my fault, too. Back in August, the group didn't happen like it was supposed to, but we reset our plans for Ushicon. Now I'm a thousand miles away, and the "original" Otaru dumped us because he's still (after four years) harboring deep ridiculous unrequited love for me. Boys suck. And I suck too, because I got so worked up to the point of tears last time over this, and I'm still causing the most serious problems. I think it's time to pop out my Maiden Circuit. ;)

You arn't the one causing the biggest problems right now. There are LOTS of big problems with the group, and I don't consider you the main one. The distance is a little bit of a problem, but you have enough on your costume done so that if somthing were to miraculously happen that would guarantee you at Ushi, you wouldn't have any issues with the costume. On top of that, even though we may not have a Cherry at Ushi, WE HAVE A CHERRY. That's a lot more than can be said about an Otaru. Little bitch is well... little bitch. H was temporarily interested, but it was a complicated situation. I'm not really surprised at all that he backed out, b/c he's never been to a convention before. Monster just made me sad... and now we're resting our hopes on my little brother, whom I don't think will be able to get time off from his crap job. Get this.. he works more, he works longer hours, the job is shittier.. and he makes a LOT less than I do right now, and doesn't get ANY lunch breaks! He's pretty much full time, and they arn't giving him benefits.. and he doesn't get time off when he wants. I told him he should take a stand so he gets treated better. :( I think he's afraid of getting fired, though, b/c jobs are so hard to find down there.
In any case.. we have other things that are pretty major I'm worring about. It's senseless for me to worry about them, though, b/c I have no control over them. I think there are some major issues with at least 3 of our other costumes.. but there's nothing to be done. Goat's... mainly b/c he needed to order a lot of stuff on the web, and there's no way he can get it all in now.... also, since he's between jobs, he'd have trouble affording them ( I think?) So.. I'm not sure if he has money.. but it doesn't really matter now b/c there's no way he'll be able to get the hanten, etc. by Ushi. Though.. it would kind of be in the Character of Ieyasu if we made the happi and haori and made Goat wear burmuda shorts...
In any case... it's not that I don't have faith in our Hanagata and Marine..but there's just so little done on their costumes, there's no way they can finish in time. Our Hanagata might, if he now has access to a machine, and has already started.. but I don't know if he's got the $$ to buy all this fabric. I'm pretty broke now, too.. so there's really nothing I can do.. and without a solid Otaru, I REALLY can't finish the Otaru costume. (Wig, Shoes) I can put the cuffs on the gloves.. which is really the only other thing that needed to be done.. but THAT is why the whole situation is frustrating. Not because of you. Maybe I'd be stressing if your costume wasn't finished XP But if you're ready, and can't make it due to distance, there's absolutely nothing to be done about that, right?
