View Full Version : Time is ticking!

So, with only four days left (give or take one), is everyone still madly sewing or are people finished? I'm curious! Usually I'm flipping out about now, and don't sleep until the con, but I feel pretty confident that I will be well-rested for once. This will be an end to my 7-con streak of being up all night the day before! ^_^
Personally, 4 of my costumes are 100% complete, but two require minor repairs. Of my two new ones, one is 90% complete (just need to add those little details) and the other is about 80% done (boots are a bother to make -_-).
I need to finish some of the stuff on my Doll costume. And repair some thing on my Kuja costume. *has been lazy*

My new one is all complete. ^^
I still have to repair the other one! 0_0
Must get to work! ^^;

I am DYING. As always.
Ramirez is done, he needed no repairs.
My two Rosiels are done, I only need to remember to re-stitch this one inch piece of trim that is seceeding from the coat.
The wings are a *&$*#@^ mess and desperately need to be repaired. This will probably happen AT AX, the way it's going.
Metatron is done, except for his hair color, which will probably happen at AX too. I delegated Sandalphon.
My worst problem is not sewing, it's transforming the pigstye into something that seems to house a human... since I have a family member feeding Katan-the-cat while I am away.
On to the dishes. *looks at the pile and weeps*
(With all that stress I am going to start breaking out for the con, I can feel it. Great, just great.)

All my costumes are done except an itty bitty thing on Val's wig (attachment of horn, doing tomorrow)
And I need to pick up candy cigs o.O;; hehe

As usual, im in a mad mad rush. 1 droped, 5 100% done
Christie has been sacked. The costume is too much trouble for its own good ^^;;; Chachamaru is done, as is Masa, though i probably wont wear it. Anna's done, and Kirin is done. My school uniform is default, and ive got several, none of which need repairs (bringing the lighter uniform). May or may not bring kodachi..... its probably a no, becuase it sweats through like NOBODYS business, so unless anyone wants a kodachi, im not gonna bring it.
Noise..... has been started @.@ It WILL be done by Teusday. Or i'll shoot myself in the foot :)
My big problem is cleaning the house *laugh* oh, and money, but thats always an issue in ghettoland *laugh*

. . . *keels over* Cookies for all the people who are still sewing. ^^
I have a functioning (brand new) sewing machine now, though I spent more of today trying to figure out how to use it than actually sewing. I still have a lot of work to do, but my costumes are all at least 70% done I'd guess. Of course tomorrow I get to haul my butt into the city of Chicago to visit my last option if I want to transfer for next year (talk about last minute, I know). Terrible (TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!) timing for that but what can you do, it was their only opening . . .
Good luck everybody ^^

::eyes start crossing:: I'm almost done with all of my costumes. . .but that's five whole costumes. It's all little stuff I need to do. . .like attach this here. . .style this wig. . .hem this. . .but it seems like a lot to do when there are a million little things. At this point, anything that can be done at AX, like drawing the design on my tights for Terra, is being put on hold ^_^.

I think we finished last night! We had a bunch of little things left to do, but I think we got them all done.
I am in shock that my costumes are done! Whoo hoo!!!

I finished Jowy's jacket yesterday! YAY! I was so afraid it wouldn't get done! Christine's sewing machine is a terror! The jacket has some nasty flaws that nobody's supposed to notice but it was my first time using a sewing machine so yeah. Too bad I don't get to wear it, it was for a friend, but I'm happy with my single costume! *sniffle* I want four.. ;_; Maybe next year. *needs to get a job*
I look forward to seeing everyone!!! Good luck!
Ack I just realiazed I really need to brush out my Kuja and Rosiel wig. NEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Though I have to replace my Sakura costume on Wednesday w/ my The Paper costume, but it's all good. ^.~

AARG I'M NOT DONE AND THIS WONDER UNDER STUFF IS HARD!!
07-02-2002, 09:18 AM
I'm nooooooooooooooot ready!
My apartment is a mess, my wings are not repaired, my wig is not cut, Metatron's hair is still mostly blonde...
..all because I spent last night on the phone with a friend until an ungodly hour of the morning. He should know better than make me procrastinate before a con!
Oh well I will do my last-minutes repairs on Wednesday in LA.
Although.. I really need sleep... z____Z Maybe Katan can pinch me awake each time I start dozing off. ^___^
