Procrastinating and sewing at the same time

From the list of doom on my 8/23 post, almost all of it is now knocked out. I feel compelled to talk about what I've gotten done, but here's what I have left: (copied/pasted)

The two biggest things I need to do right now areto make Norn's cape, and draft sleeves for the EGL outfit. The cape is a massive garment, and pretty important to the costume, so I'm going to work on that tonight. I also need to make probably another 6 yards of trim for the cape, which kinda sucks... but it looks really good on the pink outfit, so I know it has to be done, instead of using plain brown trim. Still debating lining it in the pink. I don't like the way it looks in the reference photos.
I'm still trying to decide if I want poofy gathered sleeves on the EGA top, or more fitted black sleeves with flowly skull-net bottoms. The first one is the easiest, but I would want to put more of that white lace on the bottom for continuity, and there just isn't enough. The second one I think would look pretty nice, and tie the sleeves into the skirt with the netting. It's going to be hard to size the sleeves so they fit, though.
So it's a debate.

I've been trying to keep myself busy so I have less of other things to think about. Plus, since my brother is coming into town for the con tomorrow, I want to try and get everything finished that I can do by early tomorrow afternoon. I think he may be bringing me some of his costume to finish. I don't know.

I sent N-kun with three peices of Gogo and the Iron Cosplay bag, with theme ingredients. That should cut down some of the bulk in the car.. but there's still going to be a lot since the costumes I'm bringing are HUUUUUGE. Gotta get cash for parking, too... I'm not feeling a lot of panic yet.. but there's still a lot left to do before this con :(
