View Full Version : Last weekend cramming

04-03-2004, 03:07 AM
I'm almost done with my Shinra Guard costumes (one for me, one for my brother). I should be done before the weekend is over ::fingers crossed::
Not bad for only having three weeks to make two costumes.

Is anyone else struggling to finish that last costume before friday?

i am >.< i have to finish my Brotherhood sword for my warrior yuna costume. I feel bad for my friends though because they have two costumes they have to finish before friday, and we have problems getting together to help each other. gah -runs off-

Yeah... I've been kept awake 2 whole nights (and I'm talking *whole* nights) this week because I'm stressing about my costumes. Fortunately, I have the entire weekend + Monday to work... so hopefully I can make enough progress to consider myself 'done'... *hopefully*
(Looks like Rinoa's getting pushed back to a later date... for a 3rd con in a row... ><)

I'm not, I only have to find a way to attach a bow to one of my costumes and I'm good to go. I have freinds though who have a costume they havent even started yet. Poor dears.

i'm trying to pull together a last minute thing, just to have at least one costume to go in (due to budget reasons) and have started assembling pieces as of earlier this week....still have to get a few things, but the hardest parts are over...gonna be a lot of inaccuracies, but in the future I'll modify it. ^ _^

The stupid medical company didn't ship my labcoat when they were supposed to. So now I'm not sure if I'm going to recieve it by thursday. I may have to see if I can take on of the old ones from the medical students.

I do that ^^;; I've gone to the store a dozen times for my Lena costume and then I'd still think of things that I still need to get.

I finally got my lab coat. Now all that's left to do is to put the belts in. I may not have those black spheres that are Faust's shoulder, as the only thing I was able to get were wiffle ball balls. I still need to paint them, and their hollow, so I don't know how I'm going to stick them on.

There is no way my Rosette Costume will be done in time.
I'm so disappointed, and not to sure what to wear.
*grumbles* I hate when this happens.

04-04-2004, 11:27 PM
End of weekend. No progress yet. I'm gonna kill myself doing this between school :)

My Lulu costume is ALMOST done, I just have to finish painting the dress. I'm also making the Onion Knight. It looks so cute. ^_^

Yaaaar. I want to repeatedly hit my head on a wall. This week is going to be sheer chaos. My Lina Inverse armour is half painted, but the spraypaint isn't adhering to the junk compound... Then the pointed pauldron cracked in the oven (to quick dry, mind you x_X) and it's trying to explode on me. T_T It's all probably like, 60% done... But my KH Aeris costume went to hell. There's no way I can salvage that in time... Ack. Frustration.Stabby stab. x_x

04-05-2004, 01:48 PM
woohoo! commission done... now to work on *my* costume!

04-05-2004, 04:40 PM
Working on two original costumes from the rpg universe of my boyfriend and I. Both costumes involve bodysuits, gauntlets, boots...and vest armor. Bodysuits and gauntlets are done, and the boots will be easy. Just gotta finish that damn saiyan armor, but it's so frustrating. The pieces are all so thick they barely fit under my sewing machine when I'm trying to sew them together. It's really the project of my nightmares. :waaaah:

Other than that, everything is on schedule. But the armor keeps me up at night, man. I hope to finish it in time...or I might be dragging my machine to the convention Thursday night...

Yup, just putting the finishing touches on tho ^_~ its gonna be fun!
