The Panic Thread

Is it too earlier for this thread? 'cause I'm feeling the pitch already -- I foresee the hopeless moment on Thursday night where I know I'm doomed to sewing in the hotel Friday afternoon.

It would make me feel 100% better if I knew I wasn't the only one

It's okay to panic now? With 40% of my costumes not done?

One costume is a repeat and another is complete but with flaws.

The last one, the most important of them all, I'm being a lazy ass about starting. Mind you, it is just a mask that could be made in a day, but I know I should try a few times to perfect it.

This isn't cosplay-based, but a friend who offered to give me a ride up and a free room for Thursday, as opposed to my usual getting in on Friday and taking the train up, seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. I've emailed multiple times in the last two weeks about getting things set up, nothing. I never got his phone number, and skype won't let me send a message. I REALLY wanted to save some money by not needing a train ride up, and I've wanted to do the thursday early arrival for a long time....

I swore to myself after last year that I wouldn't go through this again. I'm probably 90%-95% completed making my three costumes, yet not a single one is actually fully complete. But it's getting there. Slowly.

I am in panic mode and I can't do anything about it. Everything for my friend's Camellia Luka dress needs to get done and nothing will happen until Thursday and I have no idea if we'll be able to get everything done then. >_<

After a trip to the fabric store I'm not as excited about my cosplay, I couldn't find any fabric close to what I wanted and had to "make do" with a green fabric with a weird print. I'm planning to turn inside out to hide it.

AUGH, I feel like nothing is working...which makes the panic worse.

I go through panic mode every May for AN because that's the only time I can get supplies and work on my costumes...
So far my friends and I have been pulling our cosplay 'sweatshops' and trying not to panic- scratch that, we're panicking. Good luck to everyone!
