I just want them done T_T
Bahahaha this is exactly how I've been too! I was just noticing it the other day, how I was surprised I felt like I could allow myself goof off time when a couple days prior I wanted to cry because I thought I didn't have enough time. I'm creeping back into panic mode, but the time I had not worrying was much enjoyed!

I'm doing the same thing, I've spent the last 3 days doing nothing but watching One Piece and playing WoW ... today is the bfs birthday, so we've got stuff planned, but I just know that this time tomorrow I'll be sitting in my den sewing at the speed of light and crying like a little baby.

It's horrible, but I don't know how to make myself just continuously work on costumes T_T

oh gosh, me too!
I've been on an anime kick and then i'm like "OH SNAP, COSPLAY" XD

I know that my fiancee is now working on the main character from Attack on Titian! He wants me to cosplay with him, but ahhh too many other projects. Maybe for afest i'll do it with him.

I did get my boots in for Haruka and after I buy a new glue gun, I'll be working on my chibi usagi wig tonight. I also need to work on my dad's birthday present, which comes as top priority!

I was beginning to lose hope on cosplaying this year (super depressing), but my awesome friend came up with a great idea that saved the day. It's quick, easy, and cheap. It just involves sweatpants and t-shirts that I get to design on with fabric paint. And both of us can even use our own hair for our characters, which is a big plus.

We're gonna go as Chihaya and Kana-chan from Chihayafuru. Has anyone heard of it/seen it/read it? XD I feel like it's not as well known, but it's a good series! For those that have seen it, we're gonna be doing the outfits with the team/club t-shirts that say "Caruta" on the front and have the school's kanji on the back.

Really looking forward to A-kon! I'm beyond excited.

For me I'm not really in panic mode, been though it so many times, this is probably my 20th con or some number near it. I wish I had found these Tiger and Bunny armor files sooner, I would have tried to have Tiger done in time, but for this con it will just be my Noob Saibot and thankfully the forearm bracers are probably about done. Bought most of the outfit from someone in the UK and they used imitation wood linoleum painted black with some plastic detail bits and thin leather on top to look like the bracers. But at least who I have them being done through now they will be more accurate.

I can continuously work if there's something good playing in the background. (Granted, I take breaks every now and then, but I don't have to take long breaks.)

Exams are tomorrow and Thursday, and then I can get back to working on cosplay. Woot! (Assuming I pass both halves of the exam.)

Passed the first half of my exam after a LONG and arduous practical. Now just the written half stands between me and serious COSPLAY CRUNCHTIME. Must study study study tonight and tomorrow, then really get back to finishing Yue on Friday. By Sunday I hope to be cutting out the pieces for Erza, then it's just a lot of painting and sewing. (I have a commercial pattern I will be editing; I don't have time to actually drape or draft/adjust from my slopers.)

Got a decent about done last night posted up pictures of my woes on FB. I think I am getting closer to happy with the new guard for Sylvanas. Trying to think of a way to make this one more durable against people. Haven't but I really should finish of the sewing for Venus so I can focus on her props. And I am planning for this Sunday to be crazy mass sanding day, my back will hate me. I have lots to sand on the bow and armor for Sylvanas, goggles need sanding for Sailor V, Nayru's Lyre will need another sanding coat by then... It's just gonna suck then touch ups, priming, and painting for the next week. Also I may break down and use the worbla for Sailor V's chest piece this simple armor is really boggling me, I might be over thinking it...

Tonight is gym carving the armor, adding more gesso to the bow guard and doing a bit more cleaning up for this weekends crazy work fest. Which will only be interrupted for a few hours for a graduation and birthday event. I won't be completely out of progress for the whole of it as I am bringing some hand stitching for the graduation ceremony. =) I'm that guy.

DP! Horrible I know.

But I am having a lineup change Nayru isn't coming anymore, and Sylvanas is moving to Saturday meaning that Sailor V will occupy Friday. Our groups Din had some stuff come up so we will repair/finish and do a photoshoot later.

Progress is moving along well. And I got bored at work and made templates for Felicita's daggers. HAHAHA teach them to leave me in the office alone.

I'm done with school for the semester, so now it's CRUNCH TIME. Starting tonight once I get off of work.

I have so much I want to get done it's ridiculous. We also have a podcast recording session with the guys of CosCast this weekend, and Mother's Day is Sunday...

I have to assemble a portfolio at some point too for my cosplay. TARDIS, anyone? I could use some time-travel.
