I can't believe it's almost here!! Only 2 more days to go!!

Okay so I'm excited lol. I just finished everything (finally!) and got pictures up, and now it's focusing on about... 5 term papers *wince*

How's everyone doing? Getting everything finished?

I know!
So exciting!!!

It's hard to believe this is only my second convention,
but I think I'm a lot more excited this time around.
=D


Oh my gosh! I can't wait to see your new pics, Schemer --
You're Rinoa is beautiful.
( mucho jealousy -- XD )


I'm just finishing the last of my Kairi dress.
Only the belt to go.
(Wooh ~ ! )

I just finished my Lust dress and my little brother's Link tunic last night! Now I have details and props to do... and some friends' costumes to work on... uh... I still have a lot to do. >_< BUT IT WILL GET DONE.

Ooh, and then I have to pack and stuff, too. Whew, my head hurts! I swear I'm not going to sleep this week.

I'm not sure whether I should be really excited or panic, I'm too tired to discern. :snoring: Just got off work, started messing with the upper gauntlet pieces... but I need to get to bed before I get yelled at for still being awake...:untrust: ..or just plain have a mental meltdown from being awake too long... x_x Hopefully I can find a way to sneak off and paint them when I wake up. If that works... back to working with the cloak!

I can't wait. I am driving my parents nuts. By the way. Does anyone know how far the mall of america is from the convention? (I know this seems like a weird and stupid question to ask. I just moved like 6 months ago and I still don't know my way around. I basically know my way from and to school, old home, and the gas station down the street. (pretty sad)) Because I think I will talk my friends into eating at burger king. (in the mall) because it is cheap. (If any of you guys wanna join me, my friend, and my friends sister who is also my friend then thats cool. :) )

MY PARENTS ARN'T LETTING ME GO.

Oh my gosh. I'm so mad.
Stupid family together-ness.
I don't want to go away for the weekend.

-- throws tantrum --


I hope you all have fun!!
Take lots of pictures!!!!

CarolynCosplay is right! Every year there are hoards of cosplayers who raid the mall because it's both close and extremely fun. You can get there just by walking. It's like the equivalent of two or three blocks away, but it's always in sight of the Thunderbird.

When you cosplay at the mall... Do ppl give you weird looks? DO they ask you questions about them?? (If they don't know anything about cosplay.)

[[Yes, Mall Raid!! :bigtu: ]]

Got more done with my gauntlet, too.

Sometimes people are nice, other times not so much. Like the first year I organized the "official" MOA Gathering (back in 2005), someone made the comment "It's not Halloween...". But last year, some people came up and asked us what was up with the costumes, and we explained the convention to them and stuff, and some were actually interested, and thought it was cool ^^

Ughh, this cold is killing me X_x I still have so much work to do, but no energy to do it! I already spent most of today sleeping when I probably should've been sewing...

Oh well, tomorrow is officially "work day" >.> I forsee little sleep and lots of cold medicine in my future.

So at this point it looks like I won't have Shizune, despite how easy her costume is, because I had some issues with teh hat for Kijin and had to completely re-start it today. Using foam and sculpy now instead of fabric just because I know they'll work...probably will re-make the hat next year depending how this turns out.

I still have to motavate my friend. She finally decided who she will be for the convention. She choose (she told me at lunch today, it might of changed) Songstress Rikku, White Mage Rikku, and maybe Black Mage Rikku. So hopefully she will get it done.

I have my Edward pretty much done for AD, and my aunt's almost done with her costume. :3 We've got our hotel room, too. I'm super excited! I cannot wait. I wanna go on a mini mall raid with friends. Well, I will Friday at least with my friend who's going to be Tifa again.

I hope our wigs come in time, and that I can finish my Kon costume and my signing puppet. x:

Mall raid, haha. That's always fun. "What's going on?" "I dunno, some sort of convention or something." (So long as people remember to keep their weapons and masks at home. XD I remember seeing people escorted out last year. Scary.)

Finally finished Akito despite sewing machine breakage. YAY. Now all I have to do is finish drawing stuff and make lots and lots of prints.

That's why I think I will leave my staff at home. Plus I don't have a car or anywhere to put it incase I want to go to the mall. ( I am getting dropped off and picked up) I think I will go mall raid for a little bit on saturday.

I can't believe it is Tuesday Night. Only Wednsday and Thursday Night left. o_O Woah. I gotta bring my costume to school on Friday. Last hour will be weird. (I go to my locker between second to last and last hour) Because I will be picked up after school and I am too lazy to go to my locker. I might ask you guys for photos. It might take like 2-3 photos to get good ones at first. (I suck at holding a camera steady.) I so can't wait. I think at 4 p.m. on Saturday I will go Mall Raid for about and hour or two. I should go to underwater world in cosplay. lol.

Same here! I can't believe we have such a short time left! I'm frantically trying to finish the details here. Doesn't help that I also have a ton of homework due tomorrow. ;___; Why can't I stop time?

It seems most of us are all in the same boat, huh Serria. Man... And I vowed not to do this again this year too. Well, it isn't a convention without cramming at the last minute to finish your costume, right? ^_^
