I'm just glad this isn't like some of the past projects where, two weeks out, there are still things we aren't sure how to do (i.e. when we made Pit and King Dedede for Archon last October). It's really just a matter of sewing and painting at this point. All of the logistics and research are done, done, done.

My husband is working on his medals today. I'm still puttering away on my shirt which seems to be the most difficult part of the costumes. It's my first time making what should be a simple button-down shirt, but they're really quite complicated for no good reason.

Of course, it's not helping that I've decided to finish every seam this year and don't yet have a working serger. Doing French seams on my slip and welt seams on my brassiere took a long time. Thankfully, most of the other pieces are lined, so finishing the seams is not a big deal.
