So I just have two white applique triangles on the sides, and that front panel, and the dress/jacket/top/thing is done. Then it's bloomers& bootcuffs and I have a costume done like 3-4 months before Afest. Holy cow! This will leave me time to sew something else if I decide to. But seriously.. I'm so unmotivated. I will probably bring the Red Mage Refia and the hide costume and call it done. I need to do some heavy repairs to Mayuri if I want to bring that one again, so I don't know that I'll bring him. I've worn him to a bajillion conventions in a row anyway. It's such a great costume, though. He only takes up 1 suitcase without having to carry anything by hand (since I made it for NDK& air travel), it's very comfortable, the makeup is minimal, and the end result is fanstastic. I love that costume so much just for how awesome and.. hmm.. utilitarian? it is. But I think it needs a break :O
hide takes up a very small ammount of room as well.. and Red Mage Refia won't take up much room either (but I'll have to carry/wear the hat). zomgz... huge hat
I'm trying to decide if I want to wear a wig with Refia. My regular hair is too long (even with this haircut) so I can't style it to flip out like hers. The red flippy wig I bought for the dammeko doubutsu group is probably too short, but it's flippy. Then I have the blond chacha wig. I don't know. I'll figure somthing out.
I could always make that whacktard kingdom hearts costume I was thinking of... but that seems like a lot of work..
I don't know if Suzie is going to want me to work this con or not. I haven't really been into cosplay much at all these past two+ years, but I still like judging the contests.
I have been trying really hard to motivate myself to sew some stuff to bring to Bob& Emily's table. We talked about it over a year ago, and I never really got serious about it, so I feel pretty bad. If I could sew up at least 30ish small things, that should be good for Afest if they do well. It's hard to say. Maybe I will magically get cosplay happy again after finishing this costume and make some stuff to actually make some extra money. We're not hurting, but I think it would really help my self esteem to feel more productive.
