=D Just one month!! I'm so excited~ Weirdly enough, I actually have all my cosplays done for NYAF already. Unless I decide to actually start on my twin star Ranka lOL, but I doubt it, since I've spent enough money on cosplay already, and when I move into dorm I won't have the time nor space (but mostly space) to work on cosplay =T

I just need to get white collar shirt that actually fits me, tweak the red jacket, and order a wig for my Minorin cosplay~

I'm keeping it sane because AWA is the weekend prior, so no new costumes, as much as I wanted to get my Slayers costumes done in time. Definately wearing Nia, and possibly bringing Sakura Kinomoto along.

Woo! I can't believe there's only 30 days left! It feels like last year's con was just a little while ago. o_o

For me, I'm waiting for my wig for Konan to come (just ordered it today), and once it does I'm going to head out to Micheal's and buy the supplies I need to make her white rose hair decoration, and lip piercing..Once I got all that stuff, I need to style the wig, and then I should be finished. I just hope I don't need to buy anything else that I didn't expect to need, like make up or something..

Then I have to completely remake Sode no Shirayuki cuz the first one got into an unfixable accident and get some hair wax to style my real hair for Rukia. That also reminds me, gotta get black hair dye, mine's washing out. Also have to find my warajii...and tabi socks.

I'm so scattered right now. With my room under renovation, I have NO clue where anything is!

It never feels like three weeks when you need something done. It feels like a week and a half then the convention just rolls right on in. I swear August just came and gone. I was like wow I need to get my cosplay going. Luckily having half of Labor Day off, I got my custom done. It was only a few things that needed to be done but I can get lazy sometimes and also work eats up my time up too. I have to work like crazy to spend like crazy when NYAF comes around. Being broke won't be fun so my sleep and free time must be sacrificed for the good of NYAF convention. :)

I haven't been there in roughly the same amount of time, I was 16 or 17 last time I went...yeah...roughly ten years ago, lol. My boyfriend was born and raised in Brooklyn and we'll be staying with his family, so I'm not as intimidated as I would be. That and I'm from Philly originally, I should feel right at home in a way.

BTW, will you be doing any Slayers cosplay? I was supposed to bring Lina and have my boyfriend as Gourry, but it never got done! I'm really bummed about that.

I am actually going to have some SRS BZNS Slayers cosplay at this con, as a matter of fact!

My friend is ordering four wigs from CosWorx cuz she's going out of town for a cosplay meeting thing(and she's not taking me!) but she needs them by Thrusday and she's ordering them tomorrow. Do you think they'll get there in time?

I'm not ready yet, at all! Damn it! I need more fabric for Nel Tu and Temari!

I live in NC and sometimes I get them in 3 days with regular shipping. I would give them a call tomorrow though, sometimes they offer faster shipping for more money I think.

Well I live in Pennsylvania

It should take seven days max then. I also live in Pa and that's how long my packages take China or Japan. Also make sure you check the mail to see if they leave those slips that you have to get your package at your local post office. That happened to me before and one of my item went back to the buyer and I didn't even notice.

I live in New York, and I ordered my wig last week. Last time I did that (last minute wig ordering), it came two days before I left for Otakon. It made me love CosWorx alot.

Post 100? D=


How long does it take to get a wig here? From China? >_<

I'm more or less done with everything cept the wig ._.

Depends really. Some places on ebay I buy from can get it to me the week after I order it. But I've waited for a wig up to two weeks. That's why I try to order it at least 3 weeks ahead of time in case.

I can't believe it's really this week, lol. I have a ton of stuff left to do, I probably won't have my costume done in time. I'm just so busy this week.

And I don't know who I'm going with yet either XD, I think I'll make my sister tag along with me.

As for ordering something from China, I once ordered a costume that took about 2.5 weeks for them to deliver. I *think* they will rush it if you ask them to, if you pay a bit more.. as someone said.

I feel your pain. I spent SO much time these past few months on my masquerade costume that I threw together my Friday costume in a week and it looks like garbage. LOL

What's worse is, I absolutely love Yuna, but I'm not really fond of Chobits haha.

As of now I have to start packing. I have to work tomorrow so I don't want to rush things when Friday comes. Friday, I just want to walk out of the door and catch the train, bus and then I'll be in New York.

zomg... santose you just reminded me, I gotta pack too! And this will be my first con in which I will not have my car at my disposal. So I gotta fit everything in a tiny carry-on and a tote-bag (my dad will notice an actual suitcase)

I'll probably wear Hinata on the bus just to save room in the bag.

Ugh, sew a hood, find my warajii, get a sketchbook and draw in it, make a yingyang patch and make some shoes

And I have class tomorrow from 8am-8pm. I'll probably bring stuff to school to work on in between classes lol

Kiba or something. Wahaha~ Narutard~<3
Dunno. But I'm EXCITED! XDD

*cries violently* my costume looks like shit. Hinata's jacket shows the spots where I had to seam-rip it and her hood looks like crap. Hopefully, it will look better with the shoes and wig.

AND I CAN'T FIND MY WARAJII!! I looked everywhere for them and it's liked they poofed to Narnia or something! Rukia can't be barefoot! She's too noble for that! This con's gonna blow. Just once, just once, I'd like to do a con right.

when I cosplayed Souji from the Shinsengumi a few years ago, I didn't have waraji either. So I used regular flipflops with white socks and it worked just as well :)

and I'm sure your hinata jacket looks just fine. Artists always are critical of what they do. Hell, all of the stuff I do I always say looks horrible because I know where I made mistakes, but then everyone says it looks good and I can never see it, so I'm sure it looks fine. :)

I hate my art skillz. I have none! My poor Nel mask is awful! (plus it doesn't even fit. . .) Seriously my mom always goes with the smallest amount. I barely had enough fabric. So, main point I would forever my grateful if someone would lend me a Nel mask. Yeah, I'm gonna be there super early. I'll be on the subway at like 3:30 in the damn morning Staurday or I'll go up Friday night. OMG, IT'S TOMORROW!!!
