Here's hoping Arda replys to my e-mail quickly (they usually do) but I'm really on edge right now because of my wig... :/

And now my badge still hasn't arrived in the mail, so I get to worry and worry about whether it'll arrive at all... ;w;

The crotch was way too low for boyfriend's taste, but I finally made pants! They look fine, and they fit him well enough for a con. Phew. (Yeah, weird confession, if I count out pyjama and stretch pants/leggings, I've managed to go ten years without ever making my own pants...)
And with that, Elliot is done aside from going over how to style his hair with him. Abigail SHOULD be done, but I need some corset lacing and to do a proper try-on of everything.

Got my reply from Arda and they requested photos for verification, but that's to be expected. They also said that I may have tied my Jeannie too tightly, so that's what's causing my wig to look so small and sent me a link to resizing the wig, so I gotta redo my ponytail. I didn't do any progress yesterday because I was out with a friend for the whole day yesterday, but when I got home I tried on my wig without the ponytail and it indeed looked bigger. That's a huge relief that my dye job and continuously reworking the ponytail didn't go to hell, and that I don't have to buy a replacement. I did freak a little because we're so close to Anime North now so all the more reason to freak about my first con crunch.
Speaking of which, I'll have to up the ante for the remainder of the week because I'll be out visiting family for the long weekend and the majority of work needs to be finished up this week, so next week all I need to do is final walk through.

After digging out my machine and some of my sewing supplies I finished the Sonico bodysuit bases. They took about 6 hours total because my machine got temperamental after lining the first piece and had to be re-aligned, tension adjusted, ect ect. Tonight I'm hoping to finish the ruffle details on them and the collars so I can move onto Dragonborn. I'd like to find my other box of sewing supplies though...my pin cushion is in there. T-T

So I did a little experimenting before packing, and my old Ruri wig will have to suffice in place of my Jeannie unofficially, that is unless I get my wig problem resolved. I did say I got a reply from Arda, and sent photos for varification and tried their tips they recommended but unfortunately they didn't work. They sent a resizing video, and I dug for the area you're supposed to cut but weirdly enough I couldn't find it; but my Magnum wig does. If I did it though it'll be the same as it was before. I even measured both wigs as best I could and both came to 21" and 23" respectively. Even my sister measured it herself to help me out and she also came to 21".
I'm pretty sure Arda sent me the right wig, and even then stuff will still happen but I'm just glad I have a backup. But even with the tips and if the Jeannie is indeed 100% 23", none of the tips work. I was even told to fit to my own hairline, tried it but even leaving it down you still see my own hairline peaking out. I'm going to send more photos for varification, but in the mean time I'll be styling my old Ruri wig. And ironically enough, gives more coverage than my Jeannie.
Can't say I'm not upset with myself for not figuring this out earlier and having the work I did go to waste...

EVERYTHING IS PACKED AND COMPLETE... with the exception of some small details for Dragonborn. Need to do some last minute running around today to pick up things like coloured hair spray, twine, and such but then I'll be golden. I'll be doing last minute things in the hotel like wig trimming and some stitch repairs but other than that I am good to go. Excited to see you all this weekend. WE ALL WORKED SO HARD, WE WILL ALL LOOK AMAZING!

Yeah! Especially since I've got the power of wind and moon on my side! (One of my characters is based off wind and moon respectively; or a personification of xD).
And speaking of, I'm officially done! I'm done Celina's bracelet, finished the wig, finished the wig for Rin and all packed and ready to go! Only minor final words before the big dance is that I did work on Rin's bracelet, but I didn't like how it turned out unfortunately. But I'll still be recognizable so I'm ok with it; especially since I'm doing casual cosplay.
My minor wig troubles with my Jeannie will have to be fixed 'til after Anime North, but it's not a total loss since a) there's probably a chance for me to re-wear Celina later this year anyways, b) I won't need a new wig (Hopefully. Please let me be wrong...) and c), I have a backup (Thank god...). It is a shame I won't be wearing the intended wig to the con, but again, there's a possibility of me re-wearing Celina again. Just two more days!

Edit:
Forgot to mention how nice it is to be wearing a full costume this year, even if it just one unlike last year! Rin is a casual one for this year, but it's pretty much stuff I have that can easily pass for her actual outfit so I guess it half counts, haha.

Off to the con! It's gonna be a scorcher today, so stay hydrated and cool out there! And don't forget to have fun!
I'll be the one in pastel goth garb and mint green hair if anyone's looking for me xD!

Edit:
Several hours later...

Had fun today, except for the part where I got sunburned . Day one was okay I guess, but Saturday as expected, will probably be the more eventful part of the con. I'm actually considering going Sunday this year, especially since I'm not as tired as I've been in the past (and today I was wearing 2" heel boots). It's not set in stone though because it's just an idea, so I most likely might not come after all.
