Just got back from NYC and I'm totally going.
I'm doing some old school stuff this time.

Raistlin Majere from Dragonlance (I'll be in a black and gold cloak, with a long silver wig, a dragon-claw staff, and gold body paint.)
and
Morticia and Gomez Addams, with my boyfriend. We'll be tango-ing around, I'm sure.

Did some major progress on my main cosplay. Finished cutting the lining, made 'bias' tape (not actually cut on the bias, but eh), cut the contrast pieces, started patterning the foot covers, paper mached the prop, cut the interfacing for fiberglassing.

Next weekend, when it's not so humid, will be gem casting for the first time and fiberglassing and preliminary sewing. Hopefully it will be mostly done by end of this month. Then I'll have a little bit of time to attempt Erza, assuming school doesn't kill me first. Back to homework I go!

Made some progress on Nayru, Pretty pleased I need to alter the sleeve holes but I will do that as I work on the sheer layer and pearls. Also need to work more on the lyre I had planed to work on it this weekend but then I didn't. Ah well pics up on my FB.

Okay, added one other cosplay to my list: Himura Kenshin! I'll be the one with the bared chest, parasol, and thick ponytail.

Looks like I'm going all old-skool this year.

Thursday: (When I get there, because why the hell not?) Himura Kenshin
Friday: Raistlin Majere (Dragonlance) I'll be dressed all in black, with my face and arms painted gold.
Saturday: Morticia and Gomez Addams. I'm sure you'll recognize us. We'll be the ones who can actually tango.
Sunday: Himura Kenshin again. He's just too simple not to cosplay twice. My poor, taped-up boobs.

If you see me, please say hi!

I can't wait for Saturday! I am such a fan girl for Addam's Family I am trying to get my husband to dress up as Gomez for Halloween one year. Though he made a wicked fester last year, thanks to my make people look heavier than they are makeup tricks.

I'm so worried what I need for Russia isn't going to be here in time for the con. I mean, I have enough cosplays that I could easily fill in his gap, but I'd be rather disappointed if I have to wait until my next planned con for him.

I'm juuuuust now starting to get the ball rolling on my Ocarina of Time Zelda costume, even though I've been swearing every day since All-Con I'm going to start. Most of the fabric has been gathered, now to make something of it!

It doesn't look like I'll be bringing Russia after all.
But an upside is I have a huge chance at bringing my bestie along, while don't think she'll be bringing Sebastian, we might be doing Anon and Essi from the game X-Note instead.
Which means now I have to get to work on sewing Essi's dress together and finding her a new wig. Either way, it's going to be a lot cheaper than Russia, I can use that extra money to get her into the con now.

NICE! I didn't know you had a Luffy cosplay, I only knew about your Zoro.
