It's okay, I have the exact same panic going. *hugs* Is it me, or do they always strike around expo?

And the fabric that I needed for Elrond has been eaten by the post, so I'm having to make shift something, which I'm really unhappy about, but there's no fabric shops here. At least I got a refund. =/

Something has to go wrong around Expo time. If it's not post strike, then it's the DLR not running...

Aw, that's annoying. Hope you can get it sorted. I'm sure it'll still look great!

What I dislike about postage strikes isn't the inconvenience, but the fact that they call themselves ROYAL Mail.

It indicates that they work for the queen, and so by definition should always be ready to serve. I think it should go into their contract that they're obligated not to join a strike, at risk of being charged with treason!

I can't get my bow to stay up! I've put boning in the top and bottom but it all just curves >.< I've tried putting it up the sides but that doesn't help. I might have to resort to cardboard at this rate...

I've got the opposite problem to everyone else.

I'm done and compleatly ready trouble is i'm too excited to do nothing.

I was so excited i packed on sunday night. even though I'm not leaving for london till friday.

I'm going over my wig's too much. I think any more attention and they will spoil and make lot's of tangles.

What's a guy to do when he's all set and so overexcited he can't contain himself.

Excesive use of smiley's would keep me busy mabey???

Where would I get that? I've only really got the next two mornings or Friday to get stuff as I also have uni (stupid course). Current plan is t get some funky foam see how that works...

Panic mode1!!!

I'm not so much waiting for things to turn up more panicing if I get everything done in time.

For the first time since I've been using my hot glue gun (just over a year) I badly burnt my hand last night. I had to stop. So Alot of I wanted to get done last night wasn't.

Plus my normally well behaved plastic isn't bending the way I want it to. So I'm going to have to rethink Cain's pauldrons.

I still have wings and more armour pieces to make!!

AARRGGHHHHHH!!!!

My iron on letters STILL aren't here after being posted on the 1st October T_T It's recorded delivery but every time I track it it says "We have your item". Umm ok but can I have it please?!
Ugh.
I'm looking at having to do the detailing on my t-shirt entirely in fabric pen which I fear will look sloppy =/

you can get garden wire from B+Q and most other DIY stores plus you might find it in those random shops which tend to sell bits and bobs of everything


20 Oct 2009 - 22:4921239
Main things are done, just a few little things here and there, I need to get some white paint, and maybe gold paint also :S

I need to superglue a star back on also on one of my boots... Also I got to re-style one side of my Yachiru wig as the flicks are facing the wrong way...

And I have a jacket to find, buy and modify or make... I don't have a day free until Thursday. I leave Friday morning... commence sobbing now.

Yep panic mode 1 for me too. ^^

It will such a shame if I don't get both costumes done in time. But I will try my very best - even if it means taking bits and pieces with me to make in the hotel room on Sat night! Why does this always happen to me???

..Sorry to hear about your poor fingers

Im unsure if im gonna get my Rosetta cosplay done on time ;_; College is taking up alot of time right now and I have work to be handed in by Thursday and Ill be on the train by Friday morning. All my other cosplays are either retired, unfinished or unhappy with.

So I my have to do a blitz on Thurseay evening and I might have to do last minuite bits in the evening ;_;

Still have a skirt, a tubetop and a cardigen to finish. Hope it looks ok at the end.

*tries to stay optimistic and positive*
