Taylor: best of luck! :3 And those liars--they have foam mats in the gardening section :P They also have larger interlocking mats that look like jigsaw pieces--I know some cosplayers that use them for larger armored costumes, and my Dad has them on the floor in his garage.
And 10 DAYS TO GO!! My Elsa ice shoes should be arriving today, Gumballs pants will be arriving by Thursday and Elsa's wig should be here by this weekend
Decided on not bringing Monochromicorn, since he turned out waaaayy too big to pack, haha. Other than that, it's time to break out the lists and start getting organized.
Edit: Elsa shoes arrived and, while gorgeous, I didn't realize that the toe and ankle pieces were going to be made out of EVA foam. I know that they won't hold up to the abuse of Wonder con, so I cut off the foam pieces and used them as a template--slightly modified--to cut out pieces of worbla that I heat molded to the shoes and attached with E5000. Once dry, onto priming, sanding, painting, glossing, and glitterfying!
And with shoes! Just waiting for the wig now :3
And due to programming/panel changes my lineup is now:
Friday: Astrid, then Vanellope
Saturday: Elsa, then Prince Gumball
Sunday: Daenerys, then Snow White
Snuck in Vanellope since I haven't had the chance to wear her to a con yet C:
