Real quick, since the LJ gods are fickle..

I need to sew but I haven't really felt like it since I got back from the con. And this is a very bad time to get lazy. I'm laying off the lolihats until after Expo, since I'll have plenty of time between Expo and Afest....

But seriously, the most motivated I've been since Sunday has been a rush trip out for gummy worms and a green tea frappuchino XD

I also keep staring at my finished pants thinking.. "Wow.. that's awesome.. I usually have so much trouble with pants and these turned out so nice with a proper waistband and no elastic.
I also found a pair of elbow length white pvc gloves on ebay today!!! So I don't have to sew some from scratch. I'm very excited about that part in particular. I just got my vinyl in yesterday.. and if I don't have to make gloves, and I can use a minimal ammount for the boot covers, I might just have enough for the cape if i'm super conservative with my fabric. I ordered two yards, and it seems like it would be enough from holding it up against myself. It's not a full circle opera cape. And the reverse bits I cut out at the bottom can be used for the "collar" at the top. Since I don't have to sew gloves, this also takes a few hours off my construction time. I do need to get my ass in gear if I hope to finish it in time, though. I just got an email saying my shoes shipped today, which is super awesome. That just leaves the wig.... I haven't heard anything from them about tracking numbers or any of that BS, so it makes me kind of nervous.. especially since the chances of me finding anything like that around town are 0. If that wig doesn't come in time for me to style it, the costume it blown, and I'll have to wait to wear it to like AFest or somthing... and I won't have the group T..T
I will post photos when I get the jacket mostly done. I saved the missing children newspaper mailer from the mail today, and I'm going to use that to draft my pattern. I'm also going to hell.

I've also been thinking..
WTF. Why have the buttered popcorn flavors of jelly bellies stayed in the pre-packaged mix bags for so long? they are seriously disgusting, and I always have trouble seeing the yellow spots.. So normally I pick them out when I can, but sometimes I end up eating one thinking it's coconut or vanilla or marshmallow or cream soda or whatever. Ugh. Just nasty.
