Okay... first off let me strat by saying that I looooove creating my own costumes, but putting them together is a whole new story. x.x I can never stay with one design long enough before I'm switching it for something else at the last minute-- causing a lot of mental and financial problems.
For example, while I have never coplayed anything at all, I still plan ahead almost 10 months before, but alas, with my situation, I'm unable to attend one since I have such a strict grandmother. I'm not allowed to go anywhere unless she's with me, and she ruins the fun ALL the time.... But I am getting off-point~
Anyway, in 2008, come hell or high water, I am going to be going to MetroCon-- those in the Tampa Bay area of Florida would know it-- and there's a masquarade....
Well, I've made my design for my outfit, which is Gothic Lolita, buuuut as its a masquerade, I don't know what kind of mask would go with my outfit. To tell the truth, I really have no idea what I'm going to do with my costume since its a 3 year old design and a lot has changed since then (Didn't even know about Gothic Lolita then, it was styled as a Victorian age dress).
Sooooo, question is, how much lace/silk/ribbons is TOO much for a mask? (I have a bad habit of overexaggerating everything >.<)
BTW, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I wrote waaaaay too much for a simple question, please forgive.
