I've been running around like crazy! I know I'm able to go to AX, but I haven't even BEGUN my costume. I'm graduating this year, so things are really hectic and I'm so busy. Arg! *runs away with bolts of fabric, thread, plans, etc*

I'm glad I'm not the only one running around panicking and screaming like a banshee . . . I guess ^^;

19 DAYS?!!! This is why I don't do the math. ><;;; I'm still knee-deep in armor, I haven't even gotten to the sewing yet. *hits head w/brick* And I NEED a MITER SAW~ *dies*

Ganbatte, everyone!

I'm sitting here with fabric of my Ernie/Annie costume pinned around me waiting until I have a chance to kidnap a model to wear it in my place. @_@ I can't make the measurements up the backside while I'm wearing it! ;.;

I still have 3 more costumes to work on too. T_T Of course, next week I will have volunteer(slave) labor available to finish things. >.> Hopefully ^_^;;

I thought we had about 23-24 more days, or something like that. After I read your post of days, I went to count the calendar... but that was this morning, and now it's night, so I could be wrong.

I still need to work on everything. I've been gathering bits and pieces here and there, but I still need to assemble, cut and sew. The small stuff can wait -- it's the costumes that I need to work on. *wonders why she said she'd work all week, full day for this week...argh*

I have two costumes 75% done, one 50% done, and one not even started. I am so guffed ;_;. Especially since the one not started is a commission for a friend. . .I'm kinda obligated to finish it ^^;;.

I've still got a whole costume to make, and I've never done one before. Fortunately, it can all be done by modifing stuff, I don't actually need to make anything form scratch.

Psychotic Jei

I have...one costume finished...with the collar not attached....and then I have another costume...I jsut need to sew the pieces together...and...attach the collar. And then I have two not started. Luckily...they're pretty simple...and I can probably do them in one night.

Fun. I haven't even got any plans for either.. I doubt I'll be able to go to either.

That's why I'm posting about a north bay gathering in july/august maybe.. hrmm I probably won't be here 1st two weeks of july anyway.

I've been thinking a lot of recent, and I'm debating on whether or not I should participate in the mini-masquerade on AX Friday. I've confirmed a spot in it (I'm the one who's under the group name "Cosplay.com".. representin'!! :skidude2: ) But the event will take up most of my Friday, from 10:30am-3pm, and during that time I won't be able to go anywhere, and the only pictures of cosplayers that I'll get are of those who are participating in the event. That may be a lot :) but outside the convention center there'll be a LOT more wandering around the hotels, dealers' room, etc. And so if I'm busy with the mini-masquerade I'll miss out on getting pics of them, and will have to trust Admin to get them for me. I haven't been in a masquerade skit since A-kon 2002 and AX 2000, so I know being involved in a skit means it keeps you from what you normally do during cons.. for me, that means walking around, getting pics of cosplayers. But still.. competing in a masquerade (chibi, but it counts!) for AX is fun, and if I win a prize, that'll make it worth it. :)

AngelJibrelle: If you read this, I'll call you via phone to let you know if I truly am cancelling out my spot in the mini-masquerade. Right now I'm keeping it, but if I reach a decision, I'll let you know before the con. Thanks!

Dah! I hate the fact there's a countdown to AX sitting on my refrigerator kindly provided by Sana-chan.

I hate procrastination and cosplay is the only time I really procrastinate LOL. I still have to finish up Freya and finish some accessories on Garnet, then figure out whether I'll be getting a keyblade doen for KH Riku and a gun for Electra. (I could use the fake one from the cosplay picnic LOL)

Are you allowed fake guns at AX? I really need to check out their weapons policy...

Sanity check ayaka?!?! ^^

We do this every night to make sure we're still relatively on the side of sane. I think the sanity points are slipping fast tho. The closer we get to AX, the more points I lose.

WARGH... someone... get me one of those things Hermione has in Prisoner of Azkaban where she can turn back time with her little hourglass. =P

Or better yet, am I allowed to go on a sabbatical from my job and sew full time for the next 3 weeks?

Yes, AJ, we need to spread the sanity check practice! There are many cosplayers out there teetering on the brink with no sanity buddy!

Mwahaha, psythe u already know my answer to this thread I'm sure! But you have more than 18 days; u can always do last min stuff while ayaka manda and I rehearse like mad hell for our masq skit :D And now since the school year is over I must find a way to covertly escape and work on costume stuff since I'm not allowed to work on costumes at home.....

Let's see....

For my Red & White "Maid" Chobits Chii outfit:

Wig - Check
Persocon Ears and Hair "Spools" - Check
Outfit - Done
Shoes - No. I still have to find the damned shoes! I haven't been able to find the right type, but when I actually do, they are either 4 sizes too big or small. -_-*

For my Xenosaga Kirschwasser outfit:

Wig - Check
Outfit - Almost done. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the Mizrahi logo on the back of the white "shawl/whatever it's called" thing.
Shoes - Finally got in all the stretch vinyl for that and now I have to start working on the bootcovers.

Other than that...I think I'm all set...I hope. I'm a bit anxious. I haven't heard from half of the people who said they wanted to cosplay in the Xeno group/gathering for a couple of months now (these people aren't members of this site, so I can only contact them by e-mail and they still haven't written back to me). So I'm starting to wonder if they'll even show up like they promised. Oh well, nothing I can do. ^___^** Yep, I'm almost ready. *Trips*

psythe! How could you make such a horrible thread? I don't know why I was thinking I still had a month to go. I um...don't even know what I have to do... X_x Um, plane ticket and con reg is thankfully complete. I guess I have a room. (Those are the important parts, I guess.) Now it's just mass costume fixing and organizing for the silly artist alley and I don't even know what I'm bringing yet for that exactly O_o

Al - I'll help out with picture-taking during your hallway absence, so do the little masquerade if you want to. >^_^< I think I'm finally set to start going hard-core with the photos....I just gotta make sure I'm not wearing any visually restrictive costume Friday morning...oh wait (*changes plans*) - yeah, actually that's possible. Just lemme know if you want the help.

Ayaka - I think C^3 is eating all our sanity points away >_< You still wanna do the Mitsuwa meet next week?

...Wow, 18 days. I still cannot believe that. Must...tear...self away from board...
Hmm, but I -am- trapped in a house full of supplies for the next three days, all alone. I just might finish something!

**Looks wistfully at his pile of half-finished, or less, costumes, props, and incomplete keyblade. Sighs**

Oi...time and money have not been my friends recently. Luckily, I just graduated, so now I've got a clear calender until AX rolls around. I just hope I can get everything finished...Dita, Zima, Xelloss, Gaav, Dynast Graucherra, Phibrizzo, a Persocom, and a toss-up between Filia or Xelas... **Sighs more and goes off to brood over his work**

Actually I'm not too sure...LOL but by fake I'm meaning super fake...those who were at the cosplay picnic know I made it outta cardboard so it's only 2 dimensional and it stupidly says: "insert gun here."

But that's what I meant by my fake one...chances are I wouldn't be surprised if they confiscated it.:rolleyes:

Last year, they were saying bright orange tips, etc, something so that you can tell it's fake. I can say, though, that the Alucard I was cosplaying with had some hardcore fake guns and he didn't have trouble with security. (He was also being very responsible with him.) I had a rather cheesy fake gun (which several people complimented me on, so I guess it looked fairly real), but left the trigger bright green, and security had no problems. I'd say, give it a shot, if they ask you to take the gun back to your room, then you haven't really lost much.

Oh my gosh. I was working on them today. I have no idea when I'll finish them..

Filla is cuter honey. ^^; And considering I am only asuming that is for me, I'm voting for her... all that Xelloss/Filia fan art you showed me! *sigh*... but not until Ani-magic. Any more than the three we have already (Dita and Zima, Team Rocket, and my random Persocom) and my head is going to explode!!

*boom!*
