I'll be there in my underwear!

...And on top of that I'll have Spike, Castiel, Crowley, Larry Butz, and of course Deadpool!

*offers Zaiten a hug* It happens to the best of us at the worst possible time. I had to help my co-host troubleshoot her own machine right before a con.

I am about three-quarters of the way packed; am charging camcorder batteries now, and just lack the things that are either at work or need -very- careful packing. As in hand-carried to my car and laid on cushions.

I didn't take enough pics for my costume portfolio, and now I'm totally bummed out. I did a write up though. I was in such a rush to finish with school that I eschewed my camera.

We had a bunch of us together working on everything! Miss Marina does most of the heavy lifting (since she designs and does most of the sewing), but we all did our parts. Lots of embellishing this year.... I ended up covered in glitter, glue and paint yesterday.

I'm hoping we get everything done. Tuesday night I go back to help more. XD

Tonight and Weds are for packing packing packing!

For those who plan to be outdoors for any length of time: it's going to be hot and humid (making it feel even hotter since your body has trouble cooling off). PLEASE make sure to bring a water bottle with you, or have someone be in charge of bringing a water pitcher to a photoshoot so that everyone stays hydrated. (Don't attempt to drink the pond or pool water.) Take breaks if you need to. There's plenty of places outside where you can sit and plenty of places to find shade.

Oh, and bring a couple of quarters so you can feed the koi. They'll be happy.

@Elin: You know it's cosplay work when you wind up covered in glitter, glue, and paint!

@Celyddon: That is a good reminder. I was hoping, however, it wouldn't be too humid. I live in extremely high humidity and when we are in Dallas for A-kon it's usually a relief that it's not as bad as at home. Oh well, just have to stay hydrated and indoors when possible.

I'm down to mostly just painting and sewing. I'm just happy it's all finally coming together I was getting a little stressed. Sylvanas and Sailor V have just been such a pain in the butt.

A-Kon seems to be bad luck con for a lot of us, seriously. I've never been so stressed about preparing for a convention! And I've never had such tough luck finding things that I need (when they are normally easy to find). I too will not be getting my main costume done in time, which I am still pretty bummed about, but at least my Friday costume has had better luck and will be completed in time. But you are not alone. Myself and other friends are either not getting our main costumes done in time or have had a lot of trouble for various reasons.

I have gotten a good bit of hand stitching done today lucky me work is still slow.

Tonight I am hoping to finish up painting Sylvanas's armor. As well as sew a ton of crap: finish up the jacket, make corset, final hemming of Sailor V's top, Sylvanas choker. All sorts of fun stuff. I also am going to give the chest plate for sailor V one more go before I just give up on it for Akon. Here is hoping it goes well.

WEATHER UPDATE:

Weather.com and weather.gov are in agreement that we have a good potential for thunderstorms on Saturday evening. If you are planning on participating in the Steampunk High Tea or have scheduled outdoor photoshoots either Saturday night or Sunday morning, it's well advised that you prepare either an alternate location or an alternate time. (Sunday morning would be an issue because it would be muddy outside.) At the very least, keep an eye on the skies and be prepared to move indoors.

We are both officially set for the con.
At least on our own cosplay parts. Everything is together and finished, with the exception of FemPrussia's sword which we are in the midst of paper mache-ing as we speak.
However, the skit, I've no idea? I'm mostly out of the loop with what is going on, I did manage to find a dress that will work, so that's all good. I need to see whether they have the wig or not though...Since by the time I even found out about the skit, I wouldn't have had the time or money to buy one.

I didn't get to finish my Estelle cosplay, but I'm almost done with my Milla costume! I'm hoping to see some other Tales series cosplays this year!! I'm trying not to stress too much about the work I still have left to complete, but A-Kon is just around the corner so it's difficult haha! Looking forward to seeing everyone!!!
