My big paper for one class is due before Metrocon. Hence I am majorly working on it today. I want to get it out of the way. And get everything else for my other two classes out of the way as well. Due to Metrocon, my 3 classes, and a convention for school, I can't take a new summer job . Although they may call me to sub during the summertime.

Don't worry, this year I won't be singing onstage.

I am kinda worried about two of my costumes. One of them is all black, and the other one involves velvet. I am very sensitive to heat, and although I got cold last year wearing my Angel Hikaru costume, I fear I may get a heat rash or go hyperthermic. It HAS happened recently.

I live just twenty minutes from where the convention will be held. :3 I am going to make my first costume, gothic lolita outfit. I'll be there with several(a lot) of friends and hopefully for all three days.

Don't worry about the heat. It will only be near 90 or 95 and it should be held indoors where the air conditioning is.

Talking meh driving up there from south fl ^^

weeeeh!! i can't wait for metrocon!!! ^^ i'm going to be driving up there with my older bro and a few other friends. i'm so glad that my older bro lives up there near tampa! ^^ i would sooooo love to stay at the hotel also, because all you ppls seem really cool and fun, and i wanna have fun too! ^^

i've been planning out my costumes, and recently i've been wondering what i should wear to the ff ball. i know i've been thinking of cosplaying mana for a long while now, and i decided to do french maid mana. itll be cool if i can carry around the same exact guitar he has. ^^

i think i may be going for the three days, but i might also want to cosplay as different ppls for the next two days. i've been thinking maybe reno, and maybe kaoru or gackt. ^^ i'm still trying to decide. ^^

but right now i'm wondering what i should show up to the ff ball as. i'm thinking of going ff theme. ^^

Whoa, whoa....what do you mean the gothic stuff? X. x -Huge Stabbing Westward fan.- Either way, it'd be cool to see someone play some of their music. I'll be sure to check it out.

*drools* Mana at the ffball...save a danace for me!! lol

I'm having a bit of wig shopping troubles right now. Anyone know a nice place in Orlando that sells wigs? I'm sick of ordering online, but If I have to I will, I'd just like to see what's close to home before I result to the internet. Y'know , color matching troubles.

demonxlt: I love seeing the people who sit and perform and things like that. I always stop and view the art and listen for at least 5 minutes or so but my bf is coming and he likes to do the craziest stuff while cosplaying so he may keep me busy...but I'm gonna try at least!!!

Wish I had an older brother.. ;__; my little brother is too young and hyper to handle at a con (he's 9 going on 4 with serious ADHD) but one day he'll make a great addition to the cosplay community...I have my hope.
