100x this!!! I'm always really sad too because I se an amazing cosplayer every like two feet I walk but just forget. And then I go online and say "You remember that cool ____ cosplayer?" and no one remembers and I have no picture and then I just sit there and whine.

It appears my chances of going are very good at the moment. I am very much looking forward to bringing the best out of my wares at the convention to the fullest extent. At my last two conventions I took an average of 1150 photos, lets see if I can exceed that here.

Well got my travel ticket paid, con pass is covered since I'm doing the pepakura panel, but still stuck trying to find a room share. For me it's always fun staying with someone wanting a room mate because you can share past con stories and other knowledge. If all else fails I'll probably do the Couchsurfing thing again, like back when I went to All-Con in 2010.

I probably won't have as much time to take photos as I'd like, if All-Con was any indication--I only had a couple hours' downtime during the entire convention when I wasn't filming, and I took those couple of hours to eat, charge my camcorder batteries, and rest a little! (Always take care of your health first and foremost during a convention, because your body will get you through it better.) Mostly I'll be filming, but I have my camera as a filming backup. I'm trying really, really hard to cut down on the sheer amount of equipment I have to tote around.

Can't wait until the schedule comes out. I'm eager to see what sort of surprises they have lined up for us. Working fast and furiously on cosplay...need to get cracking on adding details to my panel outlines so I don't have to pull quite so much out of my rear end.

But I just hope none of you guys run into issues last minute. It happens to everyone especially me. A-Kon 24 is gonna be awesome!! I just hope my Cellphone Camera/Camcorder are ready!

Thanks for the well wishes ^_^ I haven't been thinking about A-Kon costumes much though cuz Matsuri is in just a few days ... I'm almost done with the last costume, then I can start thinking about A-Kon costumes XD

All my personal costumes for the next several cons are done, hooray! I have a few commissions left to finish for A-Kon, but only one is a full costume.

Lucky! I have just started my Cardinal Sforza costume and haven't touched my Juvia yet. And I have one commission for A-kon, two for out of the country for June, and one for a con in my hometown three weeks after A-kon!

I still haven't even finalized what cosplays I'm going to make for A-kon. Hopefully some great ideas will hit me at Matsuri and I'll be inspired as to what to make. :3

You, ma'am, are MOST CERTAINLY NOT ALONE.

I made major progress today, but this was my last 'free' weekend until mid-May. Back to college I go for my final certification class! I'm seriously starting to worry about being able to finish everything for A-Kon given my workload, plus there are two new skills I have to teach myself and get to a certain level before I can finish this cosplay I'm working on--applique and resin casting. (Or, if I want to be cheap and quick, hot glue casting.) I learned dyeing today. If only I could have hung my fabric outside to dry without turning the roof tiles and my patio molding purple....

Incidentally, speaking of Juvia, Fairy Tail is what has kept me sane for the last two weekends of grinding work. I love series that you can just hit 'play' on and let them run in the background while you work. I'm one of those people that can't work in silence, nor do I work well when I have to constantly get up to work the controls on my media player (i.e. one-offs or short shows).
