Day before the con

... And I find myself once again with a pile of unfinished costumes at the very last minute.
Granted, I do think i'm going to finish before 1AM as long as Ray don't bring a ton of stuff to do with him.. heheheh.. but I really thought I'd be able to finish everything well before a con for once. I DID get a LOT more done than usual before this con, so I guess that helps.. but I didn't get to do everything I wanted.
There is another first, though.. I was actually able to go back and work on an older costume and get more repairs/additions done to it! Holy crap! If it's not done by the day I wear it, I usually call it finished and forget about the other parts that are wrong on it. hahahhaah

List of doom has changed a bit. Now i'm most of the way done with Norn's cape, leaving me with just the wig/ear attachment on that costume. Holy crap!!

If I finish everything in time today, I might go back and fix Shiina's top or bootcovers.. but I don't know that I will have time for that. I'm pretty much writing off a lot of stuff, but nothing vital, so I feel a bit better about things costume-wise. I'm bringing my DS with me to this con to take care of my Nintendog >..>

Gotta go shopping for con food tonight, and pack, too.

Bringing these costumes with me:

EGL outfit
Tsunade (the pants were washed from KKC.. hahahaha)
and maybe Yu~ki.. though I've only worn that costume once. I love it, and I want to wear it more, but the 2 hr makeup application hasnt' been feasible lately with all the panels, etc. I've been doing.
I've worn Tsunade a LOT, so I've been thinking about leaving it at home, but she doesn't take up much room, and as long as I wear it like Friday or somthing, and not to the cosplay event, I'm happy. I wore Tsunade for judging last year, so I can't do it again. That would look bad.. HAHAHAHAHAH

Unfortunately, everything else but Shiina takes up a TON of room, and I don't know what I'll wear to Iron Cosplay without knocking everything over.

Norn either takes first or second place for "most pain in the ass trim." I haven't decided. I think Millenia took more.. but I was at least able to buy the 22 yards I needed for that costume. I've had to MAKE about 15-20 yards of trim for Norn. I'm still worried about how this costume is going to sit on me. I'm not 100% happy with how the skirts slip around.. but otherwise, it should look great. LOTS of trim. omg. trim. lots. XP
I really hope that it will look awesome, though. I think all the time put into making all that trim by hand will really make the costume look a lot more textured and interesting than flat regular bias tape. All of my fabric choices on this one have been out of texture. I guess while they look completely different, Norn and Millenia really are similar costumes in the end.


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
