I think my allergies are kicking in...

This is unacceptable. I have to make my friend's Jenos gloves this weekend! I did not just spend $50 on clay to get beaten by the sniffles! I...

...am going to bed and hope I feel better in the morning. This gloves are being made this weekend either way!

I have an odd question if you guys could help me? Was talking with a friend tonight and she asked if I was going to get contacts to make my eye's bluer. I was a bit taken aback because my eyes are pretty damn blue. So I thought I'd ask for other opinions?

Sorry if this is a weird place to ask, but it's what is on my mind now lol

Contacts or no contacts?

So here's what's going on with my group's panel this Saturday:

Me (texting Bro): The con listed our Intro to Crossplaying Panel as "Intro to Cosplaying."
Bro: Whaaa..?
Me: The description doesn't mention anything about crossplaying either.
Bro: Can we correct it?
Me: They already went to print.
Bro: ...should we make a general cosplaying panel?
Me: It was their mistake. We shouldn't be responsible for changing our whole programming. Unless...do you want to make a general cosplay panel?
Bro: Maybe...
Me: ...Let's make a cosplay panel.

At least I know my impulsiveness is genetic.

Maybe make it a general cosplay panel but go into crossplaying somewhat? You can probably cover a brief but informative intro into crossplaying within a short time.

You'd be surprised. Especially since we cover both MtF and FtM, it takes a long time to get into even the basics of crossplay. And there's so much to cover in just general cosplay...additionally, it's a small local con at a high school. I suspect a lot of attendees will be new to the cosplay scene, so a general introduction might be a good idea.

We'll work it out somehow! Our crossplaying presentation is done at any rate, so if our new plans fall through, we have a Plan B.

Did you see that they made some changes to the schedule? Some events have been added, canceled, and/or moved around.

Why is it I have to work the 8 days leading up to con? Just sitting here and not being able to work on anything is torture. Do I use the time to plan ambitious things that may not be allowed into con if I even have the time to make them...

BLARG, I want to go to Sakura-con. Even if we could afford to go (which we probably all could have managed, sort of, this year), it's just not possible with our school schedules.

Maybe Fanime, but even that seems doubtful…

Good news is that friend and I are going as Link and Dark Link to an artisan faire (mentioned that before but, whatever). Pretty cool stuff.

I swear I'm not going just for the free coffee. XD

Woo got my John glasses and made my John shirt. That shirt gave me a heartache, my goodness. I used iron-on transfers and while the test transfer on to a spare shirt was perfect, the one we put on the John shirt burned! So...we did a transfer over a transfer. I just hope it stays on. The symbol's a little bigger than it's supposed to be, but it will have to do.

Now...I just need Arda to restock the wig I ordered and I need to buy some pants this weekend. Then John will be done!

Gah, seriously? I'd better double-check that then. Thankfully I haven't gotten very far in my con scheduling. xD;

...Wow. Augh, that's not fair. D: My dA friend's (at least I think she's the one hosting it again this year???) Risembool Ranger panel now clashes with my Intro to Memes panel. Fffffffffffffffuuuuuu. Shame that we can't go to each others' panels now. :c

And gosh, why do I already have time conflicts with so many awesome panels I want to see/things I want to do? Lame. ;A; I hate having to choose. xD;

So many things to make, so little time.

The pleather I've been waiting for finally showed up in the mail today, so I really have no excuse for not getting to work. Off to go sew lots of things!

"Is this the real life? Is this just cosplaying?
Trapped under fabric, No escape from this ruffling.
Open your seams. Use iron and lots of steam...!"

I'm just a poor girl, speaking financially...Because the cash will come, cash will go
Sales are high, funds are low...Anywhere the con goes, doesn't really matter to me, to me..."

Mama, just burned a hole,
Into the brand new floor
Through the carpet, and subfloor

Mama, I had just begun
Now you want me to throw it all away.

Mama, Ooooooh...
Didn't mean to overdye
The tub should be fine again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really happened...

Too late, my wig has come
Shipping took way too long...
I've been waiting all this time.

Goodbye everybody - It's time to go!
Time to leave it all behind and embrace my youth.

Mama, Ooooooh... (anywhere the con goes)
The body paint is dry,
Will it last until the end of the ball?

I see a little advertisement of a sale.
Fabricland! Or JoAnne's! Its the end of year clearance!
Flannelette and Lining- now are buy one get one free!
Overlocker, Overlocker,
Overlocker, Overlocker,
Overlocker, it's on sale - magnifico!

But I'm just a novice and nobody loves me
She's just a novice in a huge community,
Trying to avoid satin monstrosity.

Heat'n'bond, superglue - why won't you let go?
Oh dear god no! - why will it not let go - let me go
superglue ! it will not let me go - let me go
superglue ! it will not let me go - let me go
Will not let me go - let me go (never)
Never let me go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh my acetone, my acetone, my acetone where'd you go?
It's the only thing that will dissolve it and set me
Set me,
Me free!

I won't even stop if my sewing machine dies...
I won't even stop if I it takes me to moonrise!
Oh Cosplay - can't get enough of cosplay!
You'd better get out - You'd better get right outta here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing is quite better
Cosplay makes you free
Nothing is quite better - Nothing is quite better to me...
Anywhere the con goes...


~~~~~

Now I will go hide in a hole with my gathering foot.
Oh sweet Jesus. I just woke up and this totally made my morning. XD
