Guys, I made some serious progress in just a few hours! My Juvia hat is done! I'm so stoked about it too. I should have taken progress pictures of the construction. Maybe I will make a tutorial some time since I think it turned out pretty awesome. But Juvia is now for sure going to be at A-kon. I will probably wear it Friday unless my friend wants to do Stocking and Garterbelt Friday instead. It's up to him.

Thanks! I'm so happy I'm making visible progress now. And I've got a commission to finish for A-kon and have knocked out the shirt and pants for it. Just have the scarf, jacket, and some belts to make for it now. I am taking a quick break and then going back to make the scarf and probably cut out the jacket. I might actually get stuff done guys!

Well just finished Fel's skirt and V's transformation pen is about halfway done, funny sense I wasn't planning to work on it. Gotta go to a friends so I am bringing Honekoneko with me to stitch up. Accidentally left my cloak at work so I can't stitch it. Tomorrow I have an event at the comic shop then I am going to come home and bust buns on costumes stuff. Then lots of sanding that night. I am hoping I finish sanding everything then, thankfully I have a friend helping me. What I am hoping to get done between now and Game of Thrones (because that is the official end of my weekend work time lol) Sanding the armor, Fels, jacket, Sailor V sewing, Sailor V chest armor, Fel's daggers, Fixing Sylvans bottoms and quiver, as well as priming. Lots to do, not a lot of time, wish me luck!

Good luck!

I'm pulling stitches out of vinyl. The belt blanks fed incorrectly into my sewing machine; I should have known that I would have feed dog issues. I'll have to tack these together with glue first since I don't have a walking foot for my machine (nor can I lower the feed dogs).

Tomorrow is drafting Erza day, along with belts for Deedlit. I -might- attempt a very very quick redo of my Athena corset.

I've never posted here before but... I'm pretty sure there's nothing more rewarding than finishing a prop in plenty of time before the con. Still gotta finish clothing but hey, I'm about done! I guess it helps I'm only bringing the one costume as well since I'm so new to cosplaying... Hope you all are progressing well!

Welp, I don't have Eva OR Weiss done, and I have the rest of tonight and tomorrow to finish >_> I may end up having to take stuff with me up to my moms to finish T_T

But I have already started packing =D I guess that's one up side, haha.

Hope everyone else is doing better than I am >_>

Finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel...!
Accomplished a lot this weekend, so now the only big things left are to draft/cut/stitch together a jacket and make the sheath for my sword. Other than that, it's mostly just serging stuff together and painting. I can live with this workload. There are things I'd like to do on a few parts, but they aren't entirely important so even if I don't get to them, no problems. :3

I feel your pain! I've got a full work week this week and so much to finish! But I'm going to push myself to get everything I can done!

Well I am getting some cosplay work done but I am pretty distracted, waiting for the next round of volunteer acceptance in Moore. Also my mood is not very happy at the moment so I am less motivated to work on costumes... *sigh*

I can't believe I've been so lazy and left myself a week to do so much stuff.. I kept putting it off, saying it won't be so bad, I'll have time.. WHY DO I ALWAYS DO THIS TO MYSELF? Every cosplay. Every con. Without fail.
