my last 3 I've changed into it just before for different reasons
ConBravo 2011: Friends wanted to cosplay something else that day
Anime North 2012: Had a group and another version of the costume was more fitting for it then my masq. one...
Ochiba-con 2012: Wanted to cosplay something else, but since it was close to home I could easily go change over lunch...

But this year in almost ALL my masq. entries, I will be wearing them all day, even with a hotel, its a pain to go and change makeup and everything, 2 of those 3 times (CB an AN) were MAJOR pains to go change, so I'm not going to do that again... ever... as long as I can help it... a lot of my cosplays have intense, individualized makeup, so it takes an hour to change and doesn't look as good because I can never get off all the residue from the old makeup... as far as I'm aware, Costume Con is the only con where you aren't allowed to wear you cosplay all day before the event (a key reason why I'm not going! XP)

I've only changed once of the Maqurade day and never again. >_< it to much work to get into so me of my costume twice in a day and makeup. I usually however only wear my Masquerade costume the day of the Maqurade and not before then to keep it neat and tidy.

I'm curious about something with the masquerade. I know last year my group and I left two things on stage when we walked off, and the stage ninjas took them off before... what I'm hoping to do this year will involve leaving two props again. Will they take them off before the next entry?

So excited but so stressed! Still so much to do with my cosplay! And I'm behind on making merch for my art table...speaking of, drop by and say hello! I'm dressing as Taffyta on Saturday (and probably sunday), and I'm undecided on what I'll wear Friday. It would be great to have a chat with some cool cats, so I don't get bored out of my mind while selling.

Thank you!

Katsucon was crazy haha, but yeah it's gorgeous. It didn't hit me while I was there, but now that I look back on the videos/photos it was seriously an awesome place for photoshoots. =) You should try it out! But be warned that the programming sucks lol.

Oh man, I know how that feels. =( Good luck! Your Taffyta looks so cute~ If I'm sitting near you I'll come to chat haha. =)

I also welcome friendly strangers and friends alike to drop by and chat. I'll be bored out of my mind and studying at my table, so I'd appreciate the company.

^ I can image as I'm kind of board at the Scifi/anime garage sale every year in September during certain hours. The Nominochi on the other hand I talked myself horse the one year over the crowds. lol

I'm in the same boat as you shinigami714. making the skirt took longer then I though (I was also testing as I went). I haven finished the stripping on it of the front segment. So I HAVE to do that tonight and attached it to the bodice. (and if I'm lucky the zipper)

I'll be luck to get the bow done and I probably won't have the pockets (that random show up in the series but not the intro or some of the art work >_< )

conversation i just had with my mom.

me: do you have a medium long necklace chain I can borrow, the dollar store was out.
mom: I have lots of chains but they're expensive
me:i don't need expensive i just need a chain
mom: well what about this one
me: that's not a chain, i need a chain chain, with proper links
mom: sure it is, what do you call those
me: those are fancy, i just need a chain
mom: how about these
me: those aren't chains either, they spiral. It's okay, i'll go search my drawers again
mom: no wait, how about this, that's a chain.
me: thank you but its too short.
mom: it's not too short.
me: it is, i need it for a costume, it has to land here.
mom:well if you're putting a pendant on it, you want it to sit here
me: no, it's has-
mom: what are you putting on it?
*hands her small zip bag with pendant, then starts to look up picture*
mom: here see, you want it to see here
*she's taken the still very chipable pendant out of the bag and put it on, while my eyes bug out*
me: be careful!
mom: why
me: it's very delicate
mom: you mean it's very cheep
me: no, I mean because I made it.

Now I feel bad because I kind of snapped that last line and I think she felt bad. Parents and cosplay
this is after just getting back from the dry cleaners and them telling me my dress isn't back yet, i had to tell them I need it tomorrow. and my hair extensions were lost in the mail... seems like everything's going wrong (i had food poisoning during my days off and an allergy attack that hasn't cleared up on my face yet - from something in my makeup kit which now may have cross contaminated my expensive brushes FML).
Well I'm going to end up wearing my SoulEater cosplay either fri or sun now as my Emma Swan one has me depressed.

On the train now! Lucky for me my big suitcase with three boot-wearing costumes weighed 37.4 pounds and thus no excess weight charge. I guess I'd better not buy anything heavy.

That all sounds like really bad luck I hope things go well for you.

Also hope everyone has fun at the con I really tried to make it but all my money went into my new place. Hoping Ill get to go next year.
