I think it finally hit me that I have a con this weekend. *_* Yes. The excitement is there now. I just need to pack my car and iron out Gakuko today. So excited to wear this tomorrow although I know it is going to be a pain to walk around in.

That's it. Operation MOAR Dakka is in full effect. I require a thunderstorm, a 0.5mm pencil, and FFVI's Dancing Mad on max repeat.

In the words of a woman much smarter than I: Take Chances, Make Mistakes and Get Messy!

RAWR!
Man, I am going to feel SO inadequate at Costume-Con.

After a sleepless night, and a mercifully short work day, I have decided to cheer myself up by taking out my shoe box of pretty things and ruminating over all that I could make.

That would explain why the two never work for me.
There is. She is locked forever in battle with the evil one who they call The Unstitcher or He Who Frays. It is the ambition and hardwork of the world of cosplayers that forces the eternal battle in her favour.

Nay, nay! You can do it! We have just less than two years, but we have time to hone our skills. I cannot promise you sanity, sister-in-stitches, but I can promise you madness!

Eh!!, just working on my prop staff for X-Men Origins style Gambit (I collected all the clothes I needed for the costume so that's done). After cutting down a funnel to cup the crystal ball. I decided to use sodering wire, since it molded to the PVC and funnel, and wrap it about 6-7 inches from the pipe to the funnel, covering it. The I tacted it in various places with a sodering iron to make it hold. Only thing it's a little off balance due to the added weight of the wire but it's a prop as long as it looks good in the end the weight difference of the one end really doesn't matter to me. Besides it's not like I'm going to try twirling it kung fu style

Went to JoAnn's and got me some more embroidery floss. Ends up they were having a sale on the stuff and I didn't even notice! All my floss ended up being under $3, and if I had noticed that sooner I could've gotten my boning!! *headdesk* Ah well, I should finish Anju before I really start on Gakuko anyways...

Ugh. My brother is planning a weekend long get together with his friends for the weekend before AX. My busiest weekend. Really.

I'm also helping my friend figure out how to attach the buildings to her Matryoshka hoodie...

The hat I ordered for my Gambit cosplay won't be here for about a week...not too long but I'm really curious to see what it looks like up close. I still need to order the wig, I found a perfect one...but I'll hold off for the time being.

Heh!! and about the staff again, I think I misjudged one major thing when I made it..like I said the weight I added wooden rod to it and inserted into the PVC so it wouldn't be flopping around and the added soddering wire wrap does add weight too. It's been some time since I worked one anything so I'm a bit rusty.

I hope I can get pass whatever weapons policy with it..though Nekocon( the only con I can go to this year) doesn't seem to have anything up about the policy at the moment.

Also, I've been playing with my Tatsumi Saiga wig...it's a little strange looking. It came in this gelled style..which is what I like about it...but I'm going to have to do something to it because the front hangs just above my eyes and tends irritates them.

So I found out my friend wants to cosplay Eight from FF: Type 0 which is awesome since I want to cosplay Cater. XD He goes to Comiccon though which I don't go to though. >_> Well, it's more than I don't care to go... Ugh, I still think it would be fun to cosplay with him though.

And I'm all set for tomorrow. ^_^ Gakuko is all ironed out and such. I hope it isn't going to rain and easy to walk in for hours and my wig won't kill my neck.
