Unhappy So much work, So little time

As this year's Otakon draws closer and closer... is anyone else out there like me starting to panic and worry that their costumes may or may not be done in time?

I had to redo one of mine basically from scratch other than the sword and hat... and My Gungrave costume is simply LOADED with so much detail Im not sure if I can finish!

>_< I work all the time and to top it all off when I come home I am tired and I jsut want to be a lazy bum...waaaaa!

Any thoughts?

Just picked up the foam for my armor today, plastic arrived in the mail a few days ago... Probably spend most of tommorrow on it.

Since this is my first costume, I'm not sure whether or not I should be panicking just yet. Well, we'll see after tommorrow.

Yeah, US Plastics all the way. I placed the order on a Wednesday, it came on a Friday. Cheap too. I got two 3x6 sheets for like $18. Not sure if that's gonna be enough, but with the fast delivery I'm not too worried about getting more in a pinch.
