i'm not planning on a new costume this time ... but i'm crunching down on a friend's armor x.x; PAINT PAINT PAINT!
Ha! For once...I'm actually ready! I finished everything ahead of time for a change. ^_^ Mostly 'cause I have nothing better to do than sew most of the time now. ^^;; I have no life.
10-27-2004, 09:23 PM
I have mainly problems with money but other then that I'm fine. Its driving my a little nuts cause of the stress coming from school.
10-27-2004, 09:29 PM
I panicked about two days ago when I realized it was next week ^^;;
I'm bringing mostly old costumes but I do still have to finish Itachi..fix things on Deakka...and get everything collected from the basement and found from the various places it was put when I moved from my college dormroom to my parents house. all this while working about 45 hours a week..
So panic has definetly set in...

most of my Major costume work has already been done, now all i have t do is little things (wigs, and costume details, etc.). So at least I can say I am a little better off than last year.

Nekocon Prep List:
Costumes and accessories:
Dr. Hentai: Done, just need to gather everything together and hang up
L'arc~en~ciel Smile x.x Head: The head is done but I need to find a new suit top, the one I had seems to have shrunk in the wash...
Tom Servo: DONE!
Custom Badges for Carolina Cosplay Rev. members: DONE!
I'm getting there atleast.
n.n well I am a slacker and still have to order my Sakaki wig... hee hee... I have to clean one of my costumes because I fell durring a photoshoot... -sighs and me falling out of tree... clutz- But other then that packing is all I really gotta do.. YAY!!

I'm not quite ready myself. First off, I have to get my transportation in order (I'll have to go to VA with relatives, since my parents don't like my friends and I don't want them to know I'm going to Nekocon. Heh.)
Secondly, I'm not finished my costumes. Eeek!

My Miroku staff, which was so nice and lovely, decided to spontaneously combust on me. I kid you not. The staff broke in half, and one of the rings came off. Now I'm paranoid I won't get it back together securely in time. I know I will, but I'll be very rushed.

*takes a big breath*
I still have to add the blood onto the front of my Sae costume. I also need to etiher elongate the obi (I didn't know how long it was supposed to be till after the fact, stupid me -.-) or create an add-on that makes the little tie in the back. I also have to make myself some tabi socks.
Also, I got a commission about 5 days ago. ALL the measurements were wrong so I sent it back on Next Day mail, and she still hasn't e-mailed me back saying she's got it. The tracking code says that it was delivered to her with a signature, so I dunno what's going on! >.<
I also have to make some adjustments to my b/f's Spike Speigal outfit. I (by some strange tragedy), sewed the straps and front blue flap on wrong. T-T So as soon as I get him back here I'll be fixing it. *nod nod* That shouldn't take but a few minutes, but it still counts on my list of things to do or else I'll forget it. XD
And last, but not least (okay, so it's my priority right now), I promised a friend of mine that I'd make some boot covers for her FFX Rikku outfit (it just so happened that when she asked about it, I had some boots her size, the right fabric, and the boots also looked like Rikku's). I've REALLY gotta rush to get that done. But after making my FFX-2 Rikku boot covers, I think it'll be smooth sailing. :3
Am I REALLY behind, or is it just me? O.o?

i still ahve to add all the details to a Roy Mustang costume, fix the collar on Ed, Fix the pouches and straps on Sora and repaint my keyblade ^-^;
10-30-2004, 11:18 AM
:::dances:: done done done done. lol well, maybe just another hour of work on my haibane wings and then i'm done.
now.... time to wait on a bunch of tables and get $$ from them. must... support.. my ha-ha-ha-habit. :::twitch:::
10-30-2004, 07:50 PM
I'm never done until the day before the con. *sighs* I just hope I can get my Kankuro costume done, if not I'll just have to go with Kusanagi (Blue Seed), Sanzo (Saiyuki)... and whoever else I decide to pull from my closet o' cosplay. ^^
10-31-2004, 11:38 PM
I'm actually pretty well prepared. I wore my costume to work today for halloween as a test run. I have one small repair to make, as the material I used wasn't strong enough. And I have to make armbands. That shouldn't take more than an hour or so.
Other than that, I just need to get driving directions, and I'll be set.
11-01-2004, 08:50 AM
Hahahah, I haven't bought a hotel room or my pass or finished my costume. I should be having fun trying to half-ass this ^_^
11-01-2004, 12:12 PM
I don't have an actual outfit for my Koryu costume, so I'll probably just throw something together that looks like he would wear.
11-02-2004, 08:25 PM
I'm definately not ready. I wasnt even sure I was going until today, so I'm prolly not going to wear a costume... :(
Unless I go as Kyo... (Fruits Basket), sadly, I have the clothes in my closet... lol
11-02-2004, 10:25 PM
I'm almost done! Kankuro has been delayed 'til Katsu, and Shino and Kiba are almost done. Now for the hard part... packing. ^^; Making the costume is fine, but remembering to back all the bits is NOT.
11-03-2004, 06:10 AM
Alright, I'm finished with a good 2/3rds of my list now! Now I just need my skirt and belt, and I need to finish those boot covers for my friend. I won't have time to completely finish the boot covers, but I can try! :3
11-03-2004, 09:28 AM
Today is my rush and panic to get ready day. I've got a bunch of homework to get done before the end of the day and i've got packing to do as well. Hopefully it won't be to bad. Atleast my costumes are ready to go and all.
11-03-2004, 09:47 AM
Somehow I always start months before the con and think that I have plenty of time to finish my costume.
Then a week before the con I panic because I realize I am still not done!!!
It's cool though, I am about 95% finished with my Gunner Yuna costume and I am really excited to wear it at Neko!
Can't wait to see everyone there.
11-03-2004, 01:38 PM
Well, I *thought* I was prepared. Now I'm in the "Why oh why oh why won't this paint dry faster stage"
And I still don't have complete directions to the person I'm meeting in Philly! Eeeee!
11-03-2004, 01:52 PM
Just need to reattach the velcro on my Marle costume and finish the wrist cuffs for Crono...
Also just found out today that my darling has really hurt himself this week, so we're gonna have a Crono on crutches. We'll have an interesting time explaining that... :waaaah:
11-03-2004, 03:47 PM
Ah..I gettin' my designs done on my Bell outfit!!!!..my eye on my venom wig! :bigtu:
11-03-2004, 07:51 PM
My costumes are all done now, but now I need to pack. -_- Ahhh...boring.
11-03-2004, 11:14 PM
I'm not done tweaking my Harlock costume yet and I come to find out tonight I have no boots or stretch pants! Auuuuugh! Good news is I'm not wearing it until Saturday so I have plenty of time. Sadly, I do not think I will be participating in the masquerade as planned due to the fact that I couldn't get anyone to help me in time. Ah well. There's always Katsucon. I might do a walk on of some sort but I don't think I'll be doing a big number like I had hoped but that's life. :::shrugs:: ^^
11-04-2004, 08:19 AM
*dances around* I'm done I'm done I'm done! Nekocon, here I come! >:3
11-04-2004, 06:57 PM
Oh man! I'm leaving 1:30 AM friday morning, thats tonight! So much to do and I'm still in class. Must rush rush rush!
11-04-2004, 07:03 PM
Good luck to all for Nekocon and have a safe and kick ass trip ^^
