I also have a blank notebook and some faux suede that I could slap onto the back of it.

I'm...almost...there! Just have to sew down the velcro and add some mossy details. I managed to try it on today and take a few photos.

I'm crossing my fingers that everything turns out, and gets to the con safely in my car.


Also...a board game party in your hotel room? That sounds like brilliant fun, wish I was doing the same! I may just end up watching the hobbit and relaxing Thursday night while my mind settles a bit haha!

FYI everyone saw my Souryuu but I only finish at 7:30 am after redoing his wig completely (so many hours wasted on those 90'd bangs to look like crap blarg!!!!!) and in essence was upholstery stitching the trim on to the robe on the friday before packing to leave. lol I only slept for maybe an hour before getting back up to get ready for the day.

You looked fantastic regardless of your wig problems! I didn't even know anything was wrong with it until you told me and showed me your source photos! I know I'm going to be sleeping like a lot for the rest of this week just to catch up from the weekend.

Yeah there fine line between accurate and natural. When it doubt go NATURAL because accurate can get insane. >_< The natural bangs looked WAY better.

Actually long wig as just mental to deal with and adding to them is a nightmare. When I go to store/ brush out this one I'm chopping off 10" to make it a 40" wig instead. lol


I was total lazy yesterday getting back to my apartment. I cleaned a bit then napped for 3 hours then clean some more. I still need to clean tonight as well.

I am sure I saw you all and didn't recognize you - the only problem with meeting costumers is that sometimes you don't recognize them.

I wasn't in costume in the halls much, but I was at the CC34 table a lot!

I guess I was the only one who was actually done? But I had to re-position my disk-dock loops on Friday night (though that only took ten minutes) and wound up needing to fix yet another broken solder joint/wire in the repair room on Saturday afternoon. Yep, there's really no way to NOT break shit at that point, it's just under too much damn stress with it being right on the joint of my hip and needing to do things like walk and sit and pose. Boyfriend's going to be soldering it back together after EVERY con...

Yay CC34!! I probably spoke to you at some point during the weekend... I think I'm addicted now, so I'll definitely be making the leap to 33 & 34

Oh I have to say costume-con was a good test run for my new extra larger suit case (Hey 30" on clearance through Sears). My original one (Walmart lol ) could only fit everything needed for my Red Queen.

This one I could fit her, Souryuu, 2 pair of boots and extra clothes! No wig this time though but it nice to becable to pack the inmortant costume bits this way. lol
