View Full Version : Pre-Con Nightmares

01-29-2008, 09:43 AM
Anyone having these? These are part of my annual pre-convention routine. A few months before any convention, I always have nightmares. Mainly they are either: A: I forgot my costume B: Part of my costume is missing/uncompleted

Lol I just had a nightmare about detour I think about two days ago >.<

I'm sewing my costume, its like a week before the con, and then I blink and its the day of the con, I'm frantically hand sewing finishing details when my friend drops her cigerette on my wig and it turns into a giant firey puddle of goo....V.V.....not a good dream at all.

my unstyled wig haunts me in my dreams, lol.

=A=. The more I procrastinate, the more nightmares I have~

They scare me too! XD;

Not so much nightmares, but I've been freaking out about getting my costume finished, and I just learned that my character needs a belt with bullet rounds on it. I found one at the MoA not too long ago but we live more than an hour out! Maybe somehow I can convince my mom to let me go get it...but I still owe her $180 for my Flash program.
Yeah, that and wondering how I can style (and color) my wig. It has pink streaks! PINK! I feel for you, Xuki-kun!

In my case, I don't have two of my wigs yet... :bigcry:

I've had few dreams about detour >< I just don't really remember them.. well sorta.. This one dream I had where I went to Detour and there was tons and tons of agito/akito cosplayers and my costume wasn't done and it really sucked and I felt horrible.. -sigh- I have to get this done! Stupid evil zippers >>

ive had 2 dreams so far. i think it is because my costume isn't done yet. D: and all i can do is wait. the lady said she'll have it done by the 1st of April. after i get it from her im putting the ribbons and flowers on it.

and this all could have been avoided if someone would have brought me to the fabric store months ago like i was pleading, not asking, pleading.

LMAO YES!!! I have Detour nightmares constantly. My costume's not finished and i'm not wearing any makeup and i'm in my pajamas. Lmao! I'm so glad I'm not the only one :D This almost makes me feel normal!

I always get the nighmares where I forget something vitally important to my costumes...

That's why I make a checklist so I don't forget. ^_^

I don't use checklists, just look at reference pictures and hope it looks good enough. And if there's anything missing and vital, add that. It's disorganized but works well enough for me.

I had one last night O_O it was weird...

so the dream started off ok.. somehow i didnt cosplay at all O_o.. and then we went the the masquerade.. and for some odd reason we thought it was super boring.. and thats when i realized it... I hadnt checked into my hotel yet.. So I started to panic.. >< I dont know why, but I did.. and then i woke up..

and now im gonna work on my cosplay.. yeah..

I haven't been having any nightmares, but I have been freaking out majorly over my Axel costume. The chakram spikes keep breaking off and I have to re-mache them and they're not painted yet! Only a week to get it done. >_> And my wig isn't what I wanted it to be. D=<

Instead of going to the con. We all went to Cub Foods ._____.;;; Buuut! Our outfits looked AWSEOME !! XD
