Aw, crud! I wasted this weekend. Spent too much time at Con-tamination on Friday. Wasted all day Saturday going to Cape Comic Con (which at least got me some nice pictures). Wasted today doing who-knows-what until I realized it was already 3:00, and I was so behind. Fixed the problems with my kabuki costume, but now I still have to finish the gloves for my F&SF entry. Frig!

I feel like I wasted all of yesterday and a few other days prior to that. It took my until late afternoon yesterday to find out what the exact problem was with a major piece of my historical costume and it took me until later in the night to get the piece finished so that it could be embellished. I had been hoping that I would have most of the costume done by today but now I've still got one piece to finish putting together, closures to put on four pieces and some trim to add on another one. At least the costume looks good and the top layer of it lays the way it's supposed to and is draping nicely now.

I wasted yesterday too. Had a plan for appliquéing the spots on my wings and kept plugging ahead even when I was getting a sinking feeling that I wouldn't be happy with the results, because I'd already done a bunch of work. Finally decided late last night to rip it all out and paint it instead as the paint swatch I did looks a million times better. ARGH

I don't have wings, just lots of straps and a hotter than hell PVC and oilcloth vinyl bodysuit.

My fingers are dead. I have holes in two fingernails, puncture wounds on most of the fingers on my right hand, and scratches from wayward pins all over both hands. Still working on the details on my gloves.

Costume is finished!

I just finished the final piece last night so it's all ready with a couple of days to spare. Now I can relax a little and get packed for the convention.

Side note: We'll be arriving later on Thursday then planned so we probably won't actually see anyone until Friday morning.

I'm finished too! Well. As finished as it's going to get. The uberplans aren't happening, but what we have looks good. And I'm packed!

Five months working on the costume, including hardware, tools, awls, hand-sewing, exacto knives, and hot glue, and TONIGHT I finally injure myself by cutting my finger with a scissors. This is how awesome I am.

Ooh! You should be careful with those, Cap; the news said they were sharp, you know.

I'm going to get things packed tonight so that I don't need to do that tomorrow before leaving plus I still need to print off some stuff for documentation and I have a few things to pick up before we leave. Other than that I'm all set and can't wait to go. Hope everyone has a safe trip to the convention and I'll see you guys there.

Have fun at Costume Con, everyone! And take lots of pictures! It's too far for me this year so I'll have to live vicariously.
