I will be doing last minute touch up work on costumes, going through my Pooh Bear bank and finally emptying that out (after a good year or so of not taking anything out), and packing my things and my brother's things.

Working frantically on the remaining bits of my Lara Croft costumes. Waiting anxiously for my Rogue costume so I can modify the feet some. And annoying everyone in sight with my excitement over Dragon Con! IT'S GONNA BE AWSOME!!!!!

Other than that just doing a countdown of how many days are left to everyone that will listen to me for more than 10 seconds!!

Trying to get all my classwork done ahead of time, try not to go crazy at work, finish the last 45% of my last remaining costume and packing like crazy. Can't wait for the con! PS The schedule grid is finally up, so go check it out - but remember it is subject to change!

Ahem, when exactly is Team Takeo going to be doing these tests?.....
:confused:

I tried on a few of my costumes to see how they were looking and they're all in good order.

I need to check the con schedule too... Thanks for that info.

Finishing touches on my Cobra Trooper uniform for my first con! I don't think I will have enough money for my Cromartie High cosplay, but I atleast have the uniform so I can be a generic Japanese school boy, as much as I can. I look forward to seeing you all at the con.

Finished posting my Otakon pictures, and now I can concentrate on Dragoncon. :) Haven't packed yet, but can do that the night before since I'm not bringing any costumes.

Just planning out my daily-schedule starting on Friday, like where to go, where to be to look for cosplayers, and what events to attend and what to skip in-order to get more pictures. See you all in a week! :D

chicken with her head cut off::


::::finding the extra memory card for my camera, and the cord to connect it to my computer so i can get my pre-con pics off and on here..before my costumes get dirty and stepped on at the con. heh heh.
::::the studs fell off my katrina bodice: time to superglue them on, along with my faux barbed wire.
::::finding a space efficient way to pack everything:- especially the monstrously poufy crinoline for my wonka lolita, gobs of faux fur for ayame and yuuko bustle. i'm thinking a spacebag? hah hah! do those work with tulle? will it crush it?
::::remaking my yuuko wig's bun. the one i have is waaay too heavy and causes the wig to fall off of my head. it's styrofoam time!
::::adding in one last costume, for the late night stuff.
::::packing up all those other little things, like my yellow slip to get my registration, directions to the hotel, and that lovely battery powered personal fan...
::::spending my free time starting on my queen mirror/evil queen costume. it's never too early to start. yeeahh...

less than a week!! wheee! hope to see everyone there!

Finishing up my dawn costume which I may end up just wearing around on the day of the contest since it looks like it conflicts with a pannel I really want to see & considering last minute firefly costumes I might be able to pull together :P

Last min Cosplay?! Oh my is that legal? LOL Seriously, I am thinking of a last min ninja cosplay, but I am worried that it might be lame. I have my Cobra Trooper done, I have most of my Cromartie High done (need a afro wig and shades), so why not a laid back Junpei-esk kinda' ninja? Who knows.

QueenAleta: I will look for you in the halls of the con for my camera.

Monicator: I will look for you as will. How often do you see a 4'11" Cyrax?

Nachtinis: Team Takeo is way kewl! I'll have to save some space on my memory card for you guys.

a-tastic: Go girl! Your cosplay should be one for the books

everyone else: I hope I have time to meet everyone. It's my first con after all.

Dang yo! I think you are right! Wow, time flies like crazy. Yes we will have to meet up. I will be there sometime thursday so I will have to give you my number so you can let me know when you arrive. At the very least I will have to hunt you down at the Dawn Contest. Hope to see you and your crew at D*Con. Well, back to work b/c it's only 3 days away!

I find my time largely occupied by hoping like hell that my boots for Pyramid head actually show up in the mail before the 'Con; also I've been experimenting with ways of making Pyramid Head's helmet collapsable so I can transport it through the airport with minimal hassle. (Airports and I are not friends, y'see...)

I've got to PACK tonight, because I have to ship everything tomorrow!! I've got the 3 princesses done (Belle, Cinderella and Snow White), and I'm done with my part on my friend's mascot style costume. All I've got left is the vest of my Leia rebel uniform, so I guess i'll be doing that tonight and tomorrow night... :)
Hope everyone travelling doesn't have problems... I'm worried since my tickets are with NWA, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Everyone keeps telling me not to worry, but I can't help it, I'm a worrywart!
I can't wait, see you guys there!!

So,how about you all?

Next time, I honestly think I'll just ship it ahead. My ultimate goal with PH was to make the helemt disassemblable; the frame is built a lot like a kite, and the fabric is just pulled really taught to make it look like it has edges. That way I can just fold it all up and stick it in with my luggage, and aoid the hassle of shipping it. Sounds like a perfect plan, but really the hassle of making it like that was probbaly a lot more than if I had just made the thing permanently and mailed it. Ahh, live and learn I guess. T'was a worthwhile experiment at any rate.
