I agree it happens all the time. This time I am ahead of the curve. *gasp* I'm almost done with my Morrigan (Dragon Age) staff. I just a branch to add and the accessories to add. I have to sew the skirt (I have it pinned though) The top just needs to be hemmed and hook-n-eyes to it.

Miku is done since it's a casual for a photoshoot. (The wig is horrible though >.< kill me now)

And finally my Plumber Peach (as in princess peach) is done except the crown. I can't wait to debut it. My favorite thing about this is my high heels that I painted pink to match. Can't wait to see you all at A-kon this year. Con hotel FTW!

Still, for once I wish I wouldn't. :3 Oh well, the next two days are going to be filled with blood, sweat, tears, paint, and curse words.

I have props to finish, a skirt to make, a jacket to finally finish, painting.. more painting, and more painting.

I feel that pain--I've been painting for the last two days straight. In fact, it's given me a few headaches (literally).

Tonight is haircut and errands, so very little cosplay work is likely. Tomorrow and Friday will be burning serious rubber trying to sew all my Erza parts together, make the Fairy Tail emblem, find or purchase red cording, and potentially getting a roll of jute to make waraji. (Depends on how much time I have.)

This weekend will be packing, grocery shopping, food preparation, and cleaning my apartment for the guests I have coming in. (And making sure the airbed works.) Oh, and cleaning out my car, LOL.

I am doing as much as I can to get stuff done but depending on the volunteer hours I get called in for I may not finish stuff. Oh well the bigger concern gets the attention. However in the mean time to keep my mind off things I have been focusing all efforts to get stuff done. V is almost completely finished just some hemming and armor work. If I am not called in tonight I am hoping to finish up Fel's corset and belt. Tomorrow the plan is to finish up V and Fel, then anything else will be poured into Sylvanas. So I am hoping to have enough time to finish but also hoping to get the call to go help, If nothing else I know I will be doing volunteer after AKon during the rebuild so then I won't be doing a juggling act. Ugh to much stress. =(

Passed the halfway point on the embroidery for Sylvanas yesterday. If work keeps slow and my boss keeps being so awesome about letting me sew at work. I may pull this thing out yet. This weekend will be busy but I am going to attempt to make at least Monday super productive. Sunday night also. It is killer crunch time. Good luck everyone who is in hyper speed creation mode like me.

Guhhhhhhh if I never satin stitch anything after this Kohane costume, it will only be too soon. 30 hours into the dress and I'm only 2/3 of the way done.

I'm am beyond happy to report that today after work I got my entire Juvia dress together except for the hem and the superficial buttons on the front. Tomorrow is belts and finishing up on a commission I have to deliver at A-kon as well as touching up a hat from a commission that will be returned to it's owner at A-kon. When my nephew gets here this weekend we are going to go buy the fabric for his jacket and pants to make him the Pokemon trainer from Heart Gold. Monday will be re-hemming my sister-in-law's petticoat for her Alice costume, and then come home and make my nephew's costume between Monday evening and Wednesday morning (I must love him to make a costume so last minute...but I sorta didn't get him one finished last year and I owe him big time). I might actually get a jump on commissions that are due after A-kon!

Oh, and I need to detangle my Stocking wig because wow...that thing can get crazy after wearing it for a day. And...if I have time, I might attempt to finally finish (read: figure out the last patterning) my Honekoneko plushie to carry with Stocking since we still slacked off and never made my sword.

Tonight and tomorrow I'll be sewing the last pieces of Erza together, as well as making white and red bias tape for the ties/edging.

Sunday is cleaning my apartment for incoming guests, and Monday (no work) is for packing and going over my panel outlines/mock teaching as well as finishing my costume portfolio with pictures. Then, HOPEFULLY, I will have Tuesday and Wednesday to decompress/frantically finish up things at work so that I'm less stressed on Thursday when I have an early full work day.

Also, please keep a close eye on the weather. There's still a 40% chance of storms on Friday as of this morning, so those running photoshoots outdoors may wish to choose an alternate location just in case.

Speaking of work...off I go. I'm both excited and nervous for A-Kon, but I have to make it through the work day first...

Dude I feel you so much, I am not looking forward to cleaning up my stocking wig, and tonight I will be finally putting the last touches on my Honekoneko. Thursday pool Stocking for happy fun donut inner tube times!

Good luck on finishing all your last minute stuff Celyddon!

And Kagz, god yes that wig...mine is soaking up detangler right now while I am about to head off to my brother's for a min cookout/cosplay work session. I really do hope to get Honekoneko made since I would then have a bag to carry stuff in instead of carrying something that so doesn't match my costume! But we shall see. I gotta get other stuff done first.

And Juvia is now officially finished except for trimming the bangs on the wig. I'm so happy with it too. I will post pictures later since I am about to leave and was too lazy to take pictures earlier^^
