A-Kon stuff is a mess right now..

Here's what's going on:
Guy called me tonight and gave me an update on the events schedule for the con. Everything is so screwed up right no >:(

1) Duel Jewel Concert& J-rock dance are Friday night
2) A-kon Dance& cosplay are Sat night.
3)J-rock cosplay event is SATURDAY AFTERNOON! Probably around 2-3pm
4) stripping for the silky hat keeps falling off. Need to try new things on that

Soo.. Where does that leave me?
J-rock cosplay event: Say it's at 2. That means I need to start getting ready for that by 12 noon on Sat. That means I can either
1) Wear Silky Sat Morning.
2) Not wear Silky Saturday at all, and just wear Mana Sat morning thru cosplay
Which means
1) Silky only gets worn Friday
2)really fast costume changes between the J-rock cosplay and the Anime cosplay.

The other option.. which really isn't an option...
Is cutting out one of the cosplay events.
We can't do that. the other members of Paper Wings.. Mako& Ringo already have costumes made for the J-rock cosplay, AND we've already got a skit planned.

We can't cut out the anime cosplay, because that would mean either
1) no DiGiCharat costume coverage
2) DiGiCharat on Sunday
On top of that, we already have our skit planned out, AND it was my fault they didn't get a chance to do the cosplay routine at Ushi.

This is very stressful.

On top of things.. I still haven't had a chance to finish those shoulder pads at all.

It hit me the other day...
Since I started the new job, I haven't had a single complete day off to myself. It's either been work, school, or both.
I'm really stressed out about finishing the Silky costume at all.

I think I'm going to have an anyuresm. >..
Current Mood: stressedstressed
Current Music: DirEnGrey- somthing violent from Kisou

Oh, my darling Integral, please don't fret like this! It makes me sad. ;_;

We're flexible, you know that. I'm very mad at A-kon for moving things around like this, and I don't agree with it at ALL, but we can all talk about it, it'll work out. [hugs] Who knows, with enough practice, we might be able to get you into that Mana costume in record time. ;)

In better news, I raided my basement with Okaasan, and am bringing home some odd craft-y goodies. Including large green plastic tubes that might be perfect for the Sugar wings... maybe maybe, hope hope hope...

*shrugs* they had to.
most of the people running the jpop room are also involved in set up for Duel Jewel, for one.

For two, I believe last year the jrock cosplay was held during or pretty much directly before or after opening ceremonies....again, see number one.

I know it may seem inconvient for custom changes (and trust me, I plan to cosplay as well....) but....I really would not want to be lugging around amps and speakers and what not in my jrock cosplay outfit, either.

So..anyway, that is what is going on with that.
If you want to be mad about anything, then be mad that they are having a concert on Friday night, when they would be having the jrock cosplay. Honestly, I think that is a small price to play, since Duel Jewel are pretty awesome, and well worth checking out.

Anyway, I don't mean to be bitchy, and I am sure that noone meant to make anyone mad or put anyone out by the organization of events, but please do understand that there are lots of other things going on as well involving Duel Jewel, and it involves certain sacrifices and reorginizations.

Otherwise, they can't do it Saturday night because of the anime cosplay events (and...err..v-k night, and the main con dance) they can only do the concert Friday night, and...that means a total rearranging of the jpop room's schedule. *shrugs*

Sorry to have bothered you with my rant, I guess I shouldn't have posted my reply here, then... >_<

It's not anger as much as frustration, really (as if I could be truly mad at A-kon about anything) because we spent many, many hours, and got VERY upset with each other trying to set a cosplay schedule that could match the A-kon schedule, and still get a chance to show off all of the group's costumes fairly.

Just when we have things straightened out... well, anyway, we learned a valuable lesson about being flexible before. I am a Willow, I can Bend.

And yeah, I've been psyched for Duel Jewel since day one, so missing that really isn't an option, yo. ^_^

I wasn't really bothered by your little rant..I Think everyone should be allowed to express their opinion, I just thought..I'd share some of the info. *shrugs*

I am cosplaying also at a-kon, but actually having the concert on Friday night straightened everything out for me even though it DOES entail some changing on Saturday.....but then again, not within a short time period.

I don't know what time they have the jrock cosplay set for, but what time does the anime cosplay start, and about how much time would you need to change? maybe I can bring this up with the people in charge of the jpop room programming, and we could start it a little earlier possibly, especially if this is going to be a concern, since you are more then likely NOT the only person going to compete in the jrock and anime cosplay....

I Won't make any guarantees, but I will bring it up.

This is Kyo's cosplay, not mine, so don't mind me. ^_^ I'm just a lackey.

The biggest issue is getting her into her Mana make-up and hair. It takes about two hours total. The sad part is that we'll be spending the busiest part of the con on Saturday up in the hotel room instead of showing off our other costumes, and missing out on hall cosplay that day. It's just the way things are with the new schedule, though.

Again, I'm sorry for being short-sighted. No hall cosplay for me makes me a sad bunny, but hey. Next year, or something.

You guys worked so hard to get a band here for us, and that's awesome; it was almost enough to convince my con-hating best friend to come along. I needed a good swift kick in the ass to remind me to have fun, not bury myself in a pile of costuming materials. Although that's fun in its own way.

I know a few people that are coming to a-kon specifically to see Duel Jewel....

anyway, the schedule is awkward for everyone.....

In with anger out with love
We can figure it all out, one day at a time. It will all be ok my dear. =)
