With about a week before a convention....instead of being overjoyed and excited, I'm frustrated and not looking forward to anything at all.

I'm supposed to be doing panels...I should be happy. Instead I'm sitting here fuming because I'm sure I won't be good enough for either of them no matter what I do.

I finally get home to where I could work on finishing a cosplay and finalizing a test run for another and....nope...no energy. I'm exhausted.

This is just beyond frustrating and I feel like I'm running out of time.

Slowly updating my galleries here. Sifting through three convention albums that took place over the course of two weeks. I think I got ONE decent photo of Hiccup.

... time for a photoshoot in the mountains, methinks.

The cosplay gods hate me this week. My wig for Katara isn't going to work. It's too light and can't be pulled back into her hairstyle. I need to get a new one by July 3rd. My lolita wig was supposed to be here two days ago and it's MIA.

I need to buy black flats, white flats, white stockings, finish Katara's water prop, remake Kaname's fan and figure out what I'm wearing for the formal ball.

I have two weeks until my convention and nothing is going as planned!

Oh, I'm also flat broke until the 28th. D; Anime Midwest is the week after. D;

-Hits the panic button;

Friend just told me that Rise's skirt is about 13 inches long and asked if I wanted to make it longer just in case I may not feel comfortable wearing it. My response?

Just finished Shion's kimono. The last things I need to do is shorten it and add the blood splatter.

It appears I have nothing cosplay-related to do for now until I get a new yellow shirt. I'll just make new gijinkas~!

Oh my f***ing god! I found SIX men's patterns and a whole bunch of scraps at a yard sale today. Do you know how hard it is to find a decent men's pattern at a yard sale?!
On that note: Happened to find someone to fill our empty Otakon spot for the hotel room. And saw someone I hadn't seen in years that is also an anime fan.

I'm so looking forward to going back to Finland to visit my friends and attend a con! It'll be so awesome. XO Gotta repair the two costumes I'm taking! Packing DWC Miku will be a challenge, though... XD

My black pants turned green. I cannot believe it.
I was trying to give them a slightly aged/faded look and instead they turned a deep forest green.
Now I need to figure out how to make them work for a photoshoot tomorrow...

Edit: Seems like somewhere between rinsing them out and running them through the wash, something went right. They're a beautiful shade of greyish olive. Except now the shirt's this orangish rust color...I'll have to treat it again if my mother will bring me more color remover tonight.

I'm attempting to make Fleur Delacour's wand. I might have made a terrible mistake.....

Posting this from Portcon hotel room. The rave is 50 feet from my window and it's so awesome seeing all these rave-y characters. Makes me want to do it someday, but then, I hate raves and there would be no point to it.

Been discussing group cosplays with con buddies. My poor schedule.

Killing up my inbox with hotel reservations. Sitting with my group and booking hotels for: Kintoki-con, Kin-Yoobi Con, Sac-Anime Summer, Fanime, and Sakura Con. Now we don't have to worry about all the hotels filling up like they always do.

In the last week and a half I have gone from owning one wig which I kept in a bag to owning three which I now have properly stored on stands.

I actually made progress today. ^^ My friend let me veg out in front of her TV for 10 hours watching the Story of Saiunkoku while I ironed the pleather to the craft foam. *sweatdrop* I've got a LOT of work to do still though.

Also I need to finish my friends commission soon. -_-
