Two days ago, I was so excited about my next con. I had supplies planned, time budgeted, and motivation to work. I knew that as soon as I finished my one or two remaining undertakings, everything would be cosplay and nothing would hurt.

Out of nowhere, my friends all sounded skeptical about how much enjoyable this con is actually going to be, and the negativeness is painful. We've already put a lot of time and work into this, and it's supposed to be a fun thing for us to do together.

Come on, guys. A negative attitude like that is only going to make things worse for everyone.

Hahaha, really? I don't think I want to know, but that's all good! I think it's going to be good and Cater seems like the type I totally use a lot or be used to using. HAHAHA. And also, I'm a sucker for gunners. ;D

There's a spring con that is happening and a friend was trying to gather people who wanted to do a FF Type-0 group in 2012 and it was a good opportunity to try out a cosplay group (even if it's for a day) because I never tried it before. HAHAHA.

Panic time. My room is booking the hotel room for AnimeNorth and well, the prices are a bit steep. (Westin, since that's what we did last year). Looking into other hotels in the area for now. This will pretty much tell me if I can go to Otakon or not.

And still no word from commissioner. Well, she did tell me she was done and was waiting for the paint to dry and she would have pictures up in one to two days. Well even with time zone differences...it's been more than two days now. I'll just wait until tomorrow before I send her another PM.

She looked so adorable and I loved her pirate guns. XD But Seven is one of my favorites too so no real complaining there.

And lucky! I've been trying to pull my friends together for a Type 0 group. Hasn't been working very well unfortunately.

Turned on my TV this morning and Yu-Gi-Oh was on. I've now seen something other than the abridged series (granted it was the last 5 minutes of an episode, but still!)

...desire to cosplay Dartz, back in full swing.

I got bored at the hospital earlier, so I ended up drawing out two costumes. I wanted to draw the plans for a prop, but it was too hard to do with just my little phone screen. I'll do that later.

I want to go to Michael's later, and buy a new sketchbook and look at what casting supplies they may have. Also check what's on my gift card that I randomly found.

Oooh, I might be able to get my dressform today. Since making Quorra's arm pieces will probably only take me about two-three hours, hooray! More time to fit the armour that's been a nonstop pain so I can get it done quicker.

Finished Ukyo's top. I just need to make her head bow and I'm done for my art project. I do plan to make the giant spatula and the bandolier later.

Trying to get motivated to work on my cosplays... but the nausea from adjusting to my new glasses is kind of killing my sewing mood.

If you went up a prescription and can still see well enough to sew out of your old ones, just put your old ones back on to sew? When I get new glasses, I usually get myself used to them bit by bit. Like, I'll put the new ones on around the house and when sitting for the first few days, when walking keep the old ones on for a bit and start using the new ones little by little to avoid getting driven nuts by that weird "floor tilting" effect you get with new ones for the first few weeks.

I love the floor-titling effect Makes me wanna go put on my old glasses, but they're all dusty.

Nope, these are my first pair ever. XD It only took 27 years. So I don't really want to take them off to sew, since it would defeat the purpose of having them in the first place. I'm going to suck it up and work on stuff in a little bit though. That "floor tilting" effect happens when I walk though and its sort of amusing.
