I don't have much of a choice in what I do today  
Since I was feeling a little off yesterday, and blew the whole day, I really have to focus and stop all that. I don't have time to think. I don't have time to do anything but sew. :(
I can't say I'm feeling 100%, but I think I can make some real progress today if I buckle down.
When I woke up today, I ate a little bit of brunch, and put on a pair of pajamas. Weird when you wake up and put your pjs on I guess? But they're comfortable, and I don't really feel like wearing regular clothes right now...
I've had a bite to eat, and sat around thinking about livejournal comments, and now I think I'm going to get some work done. The TV has been on CNN hurricane coverage all day. The sheer ammount of destruction is unreal. The damage looks so bad that it's hard to imagine how the city will recover. There are so many lives invested in that area, so it's not like they could just abandon the sunken city and clear everyone out. There are a lot of parts of southern Texas under sea level, too...

I called the optometrist today. I'm looking into getting some colored contacts. They'd work for multiple costumes, so I decided to make the investment. They're saying they could be in as early as Friday if they are in stock, which is cool, but they're not for Afest. Well, I have a costume they would go well with if I did have them in time for the con.. but in all events and likelihoods, they won't be in until next week. That's also ok, though, because I was thinking that if they would come in time for NDK, I'd work on a costume that could use them.

I still don't feel like doing anything today, but I don't have much of a choice. N-kun's Klein costume is probably 95% finished, and he's wearing it as-is to the con. I've put so much work into that Norn costume already.. I need to finish it so I can wear it with him. And I still have to install a zipper and decide on sleeves for that EGL peice. Though, happily, it's almost done.

I guess I'll look at what thread is in the machine right now, and work on the corresponding costume. I hate changing thread.

unrelated to most anything else, I just wanted to say I popped into your CosplayLab profile things today, and your EGA thing from A-Kon 15 is REALLY cute, I never saw that one before (seeing as I never go near the events that was probably for) but it is really cute.

Thanks!
It was for the J-pop room's fashion show. They were encouraging a fashion show of self-made outfits, so I designed my own outfit for that. I've only ever worn it once. you can't see the back, but the vest has tuxedo tails. I'm planning on bringing it to Afest, though, since Monica Rial is hosting a Tea Party. If you saw my in progress EGL photos recently on my journal, that's a commission for the same event. I don't bring my outfit to cons much because it's not really a cosplay per se, and it takes up a LOT of room. Afest is going to be a nightmare this year, as Norn uses my wedding skirt, Gogo is huge, and so is my EGA outfit. It's going to be a horrible space issue all weekend :( I decided to use my Shiina wig with the outfit this time, though, instead of that long black bangless wig, because I really don't like the way it looked.
