Tick tock. EEK! Little over two weeks left before Katsucon. Anyone else feeling the pressure yet? Anyone else have the (*@^(!$# flu and is stuck in bed not able to sew? Who am I kidding thouh, I'd be procrastinating anyway. But now that I want to sew, I physically can't. :waaaah: Okay, maybe I'll go upstairs and try and sew.

Just remember: 19 days (til Thursday before the con) 20 until d-day

SSSHHHH! Don't remind me! I'm in panic-mode already! XD

Wow, I have the same problem as you. I've had a throat infection for about two weeks now, so it's been torture just going to work and school. I'm going to attempt to finish one of my costumes after writing this.

*Runs around freaking out*
Jebus... I still have a LOT of stuff to do!!! I'm sorry that u're not feeling well! I'm such a procastinator too... I just *know* that I'll probably finish all my costumes the night before *falls over*

I'm not procrastinating for once... I've been hard at work since Ohayocon on my new costumes. ^_^ Of course, part of that is because I'm going to Ushicon next weekend, but it's nice to feel on top of things! There is never enough time between conventions. Heh, but I'll probably still be up all night before the con finishing stuff! Eep!

Rosiel
01-25-2003, 06:35 PM
I'm happy as I have the opposite problem I am usually stuck with: TOO MANY costumes to wear and trying to find a way to fit them all in!

So, well, no panic.

I should finish my ghetto costume for the picture with Diechan though but blah no motivation to sew. And if I don't finish it, too bad, I can grab one from my collection instead. ^__^

What is this strange feeling of... freedom?

Celine
01-25-2003, 06:38 PM
Oy, indeed, Rosiel? Yay for freedom! ^_^ What are you bringing, in all? I hadn't realized you had too many costumes planned!

Rosiel
01-25-2003, 06:49 PM
> What are you bringing, in all? I hadn't realized you had too many costumes planned!

Well as of now, I am bringing...

1) Schuldig
2) Laures
3) Yuber
4) Rosiel.

Which might not be a lot for some people but, for me, is a record. Especially since three of them are on the same day and it takes me about one hour to get in Laures or Rosiel. >_<

rosiel, i feel your pain, too many costumes, too little time:

Mediator
Maho
Hatsuho
Seymour's Mother (my FAVORITE!)
Kanoe
Alexiel (maybe)

the bonus is- they are all DONE but alexiel XD

so i am feeling a half-freedom. ^_~

Hhee.. s'okay Oshi, I haven't started my Chemist either. Someone thought it would be funny to do something with the one piece that was finished. ~_~ I wish my mom would NOT touch my fabric in the spare room. Anytime she starts a conversation with 'you know, you have a lot of fabric in there' usually ends with me looking for something that never gets found.

MikigamiTokiya: Hehe. thanks. Gotta fear the deceptively cute snow fairies >.>

Tenshi
01-25-2003, 10:50 PM
Well, I made SOME headway. I finished all my jewelry for BT. It's hard trying to do all this work since my mother is determined to keep me bedridden. I had to cook my Sculpey on the sly ^.^ :: plays Mission: Impossible theme::.

Now that I think about it, I don't really have much to do. A belt for BT, some finishing touches on Tohru, and I should be set. And Chii shouldn't take me too long ^_^.

Still on the *edge* of panic.....

But I got Etoile's earrings done......... ? Squat done today... -_- stupid ren faire meeting....

Oshi

Okay, I'm starting Tidus today (Sunday), and should finish in a week, with some help from my mom. Then give a couple days to do my Black Mage costume. Then I also have time to spare to redo my SeeD uniform jacket!
And, sorry, but I'm cutting out Rufus... I know someone else who's doing him though, so I can get him for the group probably.

So, the costumes for me and Cat (Lady Ava)
FRI DAY: Tidus, with Cat as Yuna (for VDay)
FRI NITE: Probably SeeD, with Cat's secret costume for me... (she won't tell me what it is! T_T )
SAT DAY: Tidus/Yuna up to the photoshoot
SAT NITE: Black Mage with Cat's Dark Mage (light costumes so we can do stuff in)
SUN: Prolly some Seifer & Squall action, mweheheh.

i still don't know when my friend sarah is going. she's going to wear the yuna-2 costume... ::sigh:: other than that....
friday sometime: chii... i'll be giving out v'day candy cuz well, it's v'day
saturday: yuna (prob usual yuna)
sunday:dunno just yet.

while everyone is in a panic about sewing, i'm wondering what i should wear when. ::falls over::

01-26-2003, 11:02 AM
I'm actually making headway on my stupid pleated skirt! ^__^ GO ME!!!! I hope I can get it done by later.. or at least mostly put together. (I wasted a lot of time yesterday watching LOtR on Starz.. >_<)

moo
01-26-2003, 11:07 AM
Hey, I'm going through pleated hell too for Katsucon! I'm alternating between that and the sailor top... mostly gravitating to the sailor top since it's so much easier. Share the pain and all. XD

*ARGH* 2 weeks?!?!!!

I am SOOO DOOOOOOMED....

Let's see, number of pieces on BloodRayne... about 6... number done: big fat 0!!!! -_- Oh and let's not forget the big failure yesterday night with the plastic blades... back to square 1. *sigh*

I'd panic but who has time? =P

HuongStar
01-26-2003, 03:43 PM
Sora is coming along but the more and more I work on it, the more I realize that this isn't going to translate very well in real life on me. I need to be like 4'2" in order for this to work! ;_; Since we have to cut out Ushicon, I'll have a couple more costumes than I originally expected.

I'm feeling confident that I'll have everything done at least two days before I leave for Katsucon.

Celine
01-26-2003, 05:05 PM
Oh no! I thought you were going to Ushicon, Twinkle... ^^ Aww, well, I guess I'll see you at Katsucon, then!

I'm debating whether or not I really want to fix up Ramza. But Riku is now 80% finished! YAY. I might start on Evil Fina or Captain Gloval tonight. I still need to find the motivation to continue with Marjoly.

My crazy sewing friend decided to do Ferdinand after much thought. So I dunno if anyone else is doing him... my friend isn't very good at sewing, so I have no idea how it's going to turn out. But yay Rhapsody!

HuongStar
01-26-2003, 05:43 PM
Well, I really wanted to but I have so many things I need to work on and my friend who's helping me with some mascot costuming & resin work is only available that weekend. ;_; I'm hoping we can go down for a quick day trip but it all depends on how much we get done on Friday.

Oshi
01-27-2003, 01:00 AM
Have you ever been intimidated by a costume, fearing it's gonna turn out like crap, enough that you just can't get started on it?

Yeah, I'm having that problem with Tidus.. another day passed, another day not started...

Tenshi
01-27-2003, 10:38 AM
Yeah, I'm intimidated right now with Chii, a bit. I've never did anything with boning, and I'm afraid it's not going to work. And if the boning doesn't work, then. . .::ahem:: I'm going to be showing off a little more than I want to ^^;;. I think I'm just fearing my own shadow :P.

Hmm.. maybe I'll go to Mitsuwa and buy whatever flavor pocky the winner wants if anyone can guess what thinly vieled reference the 'HURRY COSPLAYERS' is from.

Hint: Its an oooold show.
Hint2: The VA of one of the characters is a guest at AWA usually.

Oh wow... my wait for my bf returning home from bootcamp is practically over (he comes back to me tonight, YAY!) and now there's Katsucon to start with! :bouncer: I'm done with my costumes and Katsucon is going to be great!

Mid Friday and night: Lucrecia, the assistant JENOVA scientist
Friday/Saturday Dinner: my own character, Neko Cathy in a emerald oriental styled dress, being escorted by a Pimp Moogle, a sexy Russian chick and an Asian man. Yum, furries!
Saturday and Sunday: Yuni Berth :D

Also, I am bringing my half-assed broken DDR pad for any photoshoots in my DDR costume and performing a random Hallway show. Just keep a lookout for me or follow the echoing sounds of DDR 4th mix music and you'll find me. :)
