Since my FFF costume uses a lot of things from a costume I already made a few months, I just need to make the top for it, which shouldn't take more than half a day (famous last words). With Anime Boston the weekend before, that's the only costume I'm making specifically for Costume Con, but I have a lot of costumes for the past year that I plan on wearing.

Historical: Done (Finished that last week. Now I gotta do the test run)

F&SF: Still working on it. Hope to have it done by Patriot's Day. (Wish me luck)

SP & FFF: Not doing this year, the Single Pattern didn't give me ideas and when I realized I had time for the Folio, I lost the file. No need to get myself in a panic.

Hat Contest: Done (Surprisingly quick, one weekend from idea to completion)

Hat contest, eh? I didn't notice that before. I've made some hats that are kind of cool, but I'm not sure I have anything contest-worthy. *wishes she had more time*

The rayon didn't kick my ass! I finished the hardest part! Now I have to do the REST of the costumes.

Historical: 99% done; have some tweaking I'd like to do and maybe a bit more beading if I have time. Was supposed to be last year's Historical, but our group was just too rushed.

SF&F: Dress is pretty much done, am working on accessories. Need to dye shoes and style wig.

I really wish I'd had time to do the Single Pattern, as I'm really jonesing to make a fancy '30s evening gown, but it's just not happening. *sigh*

Well, the terrible winter weather here killed my motivation to go shopping for supplies and work on costumes so it looks like I’ll just be rewearing a lot of my old stuff and won’t have anything completely new for Costume Con. I am working on a new costume at the moment but I’ll be at Anime Boston the weekend before so it’ll most likely debut there.

SF&F group plans fell through a few months back due to various real life issues; it was just turning out to be bad timing for everyone. :-/ And I don’t feel anything I have done is elaborate enough that I especially want to enter it at Costume Con so I’m not planning to do any of the competitions this year.

I feel kind of lame for it but I’ve also given up on trying to do something for the Broadway theme. I love musicals but I just couldn’t come up with anything I especially wanted to make that wouldn’t have required much more money and time than I’d be willing to spend on a costume I might not have a good opportunity to wear again. I guess I’ll just bring my Tamaki ballgown since it’s a Takarazuka (a Japanese all-female theatre troupe) parody and some other sparkly costumes.

Unfortunately, I think most of the local cosplayers who were thinking about attending are out now due to the NYC cherry blossom festival being that weekend; a lot of them go to take pictures with the blossoms and the festival started including a cosplay fashion show last year. Some of my friends are involved with events and two people had to drop out of my prospective SF&F group because they’re supposed to be vendors at the festival. After the festival dates were announced, I think I’ve only heard 2 or 3 of my local friends still mention possibly going to Costume Con.

I was so excited when I found out at CC27 that this year’s Costume Con would be in NJ and with a Broadway theme but now I just feel kind of blah about it with various plans having fallen through.

And out of curiosity, does anyone know of possible locations for Costume Con in 2014? If I remember correctly, voting is supposed to take place at the con but I don’t believe I’ve heard about any bids. Wondering because the next two years’ locations are too far away for me to attend.

I know a bid has been put in for Toronto but I don't recall if it's 2014 or not.
