Exclamation One - Week Countdown

So one more week to go....

Is everyone getting ready in a calm, orderly fashion or have you trashed your house instead?

Just to be sure no one's getting too stressed, on Thursday afternoon/night before the con there will be emergency cosplay repair party-thingie available for anyone who needs help on final details (with some limited help the other nights...) Services include painting, wig cutting/styling, hair coloring, hot/super glue, wiring, make-up testing and passing out the ever-popular safety pin. A sewing machine may be coming if absolutely needed. So if anyone has something particular to request...

Tee hee. My dad/brother(mom seems to be okay with it for some odd reason) is going nuts, because I have yards of faux fur, thread, needles, fabric, glue sticks, metal wires, sticks, stuffing, styrofoam, paint, paint brushes, spray paint, pictures, laundry, costumes, prom stuff, and tons of feathers all over the house.

^-^' It doesn't help that my five cats decided to turn all the feathers into their play toys and have further scattered them throughout the house. I need to clean up by saturday.

To put a spin on a term from Hellsing, I am the No Sanity King. I've finally acquired the last few items needed to finish up my Bean Bandit costume (It's been updated from what I was sporting at the SF Cherry Blossom Parade), and I'm currently in a mad dash to wash laundry so I'll have enough regular clothes to get me through until I return to California on the 19th. My Tanaka (Otaku No Video) costume is washed, folded, and packed, and everything else is coming along.

And, up until I fly out to Chicago on the 15th, I've got yet another anime gathering to attend on Saturday, dropping Mom off to the airport on Mother's Day (Flying to visit sister in Phoenix.), and, of course, work, meal preparation, and, as always -- Packing, checking flight reservations (Again), weather (always), praying the truck stays in working operation, and despairing over whether I'll get enough sleep to survive until I arrive at SFO airport in the wee hours of Thurs. the 15th (I've also been known as the No Sleep King as well.. )

To tell the truth, I haven't really unpacked from Sakura Con, and I'll probably have suitcases semi-packed through July, covering Fanime and AX... I guess they'll be set aside for a couple months until Ani-Magic in October. Now, to dump the digicam mem cards, and charge up the digital camcorder... ugh.

I'm in the I-hope-I-get-to-the-airport-on-time fright. The madness already started two weeks ago when I started having nightmares loosing a costume piece or two. Luckily, I asked my mom to mail me my white pumps for my karen costume. ^^;

All clothes are packed, got the food rations, and going to pack right after my theatre final. ^^

I have two sleeves! I have two sleeves!
(You need to have played Skies of Arcadia to understand how ground-breaking that is. It took me over 7 hours of hand-sewing.)

Saaa, looks like I've been caught ^^; That's right, I -AM- the Boxer Queen!!! OO-HOHOHOHO!! *sends an unholy army of boxers out into the night to do her bidding*

I wonder if they could help me sew costumes? ^^;

...And why do I feel as though that comment is going to come back to haunt me somehow? *uwuuuu* T_T

._. Why is Rosiel hand-sewing? (Is it like a detail thing, or did something unspeakable happen to your machine? O.o)

^-^\/ Speaking of Skies of Arcadia! Did you still want me to bring along Fina for Happy Fun Posing Time?

Mizuho...but you've been done with your costumes for a while, haven't you? ^_-? Erg, Kreli will be done, I think by tomorrow, altho I have since destroyed the previous comfortable aspect of the costume in favor of it like staying on me instead. Um, I'm already thinking of the upgrades I could do for AX and Ota, tho (especially in terms of making it not so thick and heavy...Nisan must be one cold town.)

Mew, mew, Lilli....we all know you sacrifice the boxers to the Minty Lord. It's not too weird. Besides a couple extra for those freak ketchup storms is a must. (Imagines an extra con day due to severe condiment weather.) Um, er, my Lida may not make it, so it might be a double helping of Kaoru in his stead. I'm still not too stressed about rushing to finish, but erg...I should have tried to have gone for kung fu Lida this year if I thought ninja Lida wouldn't be quicker to make. Ack, and I probably was gonna be the only Psycho representative at ACen too....I'll still be pushing silly videos on passers-by, however. ^_-

Oh yeah, what I really need to do is get art show stuff prepared...yeah, I always put that off for some reason...
