Never buy shoes from Brantano!

I've only had them three months and the heels have collapsed, the seams are splitting, and they let in water (which I discovered yesterday when it rained). Total crap. Will never go back there (apart from when I go to get my money back for these!)

Does anyone else have last minute panics when making costumes?

I have one completed (thank god), but I still have so much to do on Isabela and the Expo is next week!!

It's not a troll. I don't troll on CI cus you all know who I am and it's just too nice here.

I just don't give two flying shits about any beef you have with other people cus you don't have any with me. You've given me many hours of lulz seeing others rage at your comments

There's no easy fix to your little predicament other than to shut your mouth for a while. It's a Yorkshire bit of advice for when there's no obvious solution; keep your head down and get on with your work. You've nothing to lose, and you gain a little stability too.

After a while, it all washes away and you may even lose some friends, but look around; were they really friends or people you knew. It's okay to drop off the radar for anyone you weren't really close with.

You're always welcome to have a drink with me, but it's up to you to find me. If anyone says "He's a bastard, don't hang out with him" I'll tell them to do one, and let me make my own mind up. I know you well enough to know that you wouldn't piss me off or annoy me in any way, even if you really tried.

Yup I'm definitely not going to be finished on my one. It's gonna be pushed back to Hyper Japan now.

After realising it's only 9 days away, huge panic set in now. I only have the one costume for two days, but it's a big one so in an ultra panic about getting it finished now.
When did Expo sneak up so quickly.

This, so much this.

I have 3 costumes to finish for Expo, then 3 more to make for the week after. So far I've got little to no progress. Mass panic however is rife. It's not even like they're huge jobs for all of them either - 2 blazers and a petticoat are left for Expo - but it feels like everything is against me to get them done, damnit!

Yeah. I got in a massive flap last week when I messed up my seam allowances, and ran out of black thread.

Fortunately I belong to the "Impressionist" school of cosplay, and made do with navy blue thread, and dropped some detail on my costume that wouldn't have been noticeable anyway. So I'm 99% done now. Just a small optional prop to do now.


16 Oct 2012 - 14:2892637
I've got the bottom layer of my costume to finish hemming. At least its going underneath, so it matters less if it looks like crap.

Having to deal the best few weeks with our ex-landlords messing us about with our deposit. Also worried about a family member who is very poorly at the moment. So yeah, not the best few weeks.

Phew, glad it's not just me! I started this back in July and I thought I had allowed myself enough time. Can't believe it's only 9 more sleeps!!

Like most projects, cosplay projects always seem to expand to fill the time available

I have the same problem I have a thing about making small amounts of progress thinking to myself "Eh its fine I've got months!" and then next thing you know, your deadline is right around the corner xD

Honestly it gives me more motivation, I end up making most of the progress 3 weeks before the event ;3

Luckily mine doesn't need to be done until the end of November (Hyper Japan) but still I have little to no Progress on my Yeul Cosplay! D;
But its not definate that I'm going, I just need to wait for my friend to confirm she can go ;3

Oh god, jumping on the last minute panic bandwagon. I've still got to make my collar (As I messed the other one up) and style my wig. I always plan ahead so I get my costumes finished months in advance, but as my teacher said to me today "When a man makes a plan, God laughs."

I'm just really hoping attempt number 2 on my collar works, I used the wrong type of glue and it melted the polystyrene last time. I just need to find some time to do it. I'm thinking Wednesday as it'll be relatively quiet. Man it's hard to find time for stuff like that when you don't get days off! D:

Eurgh, so many things annoying me at the moment. but the top couple right now...

I suppose people could say this is my own fault for having not ironed the outfit before posting a picture, but on one of my WIP piccies someone commented "You might be proud of yourself, but why is it made out of such poor quality fabric". It just annoys me that someone thinks they immidiately know better than me based on one cruddy-quality photo, when their gallery shows no kind of fabric-based projects.

Still, I suppose I would laugh it off if it weren't for part 2 of my rant: Four weeks now I've been ill, and while part of me knows the doctors are looking into it, I wish it would stop - I have phases of just shaking uncontrollably, as if I'm cold, coupled with a feeling that I'll never be 'well' again. My heart fees like it's trying to beat out of my chest, so I'm one step away from breaking down all the time anyway

Which leads to part 3, which is that becuase of this I am waaay behind schedule for my costumes - though at least I'm not alone ^_^' - I keep doing one task then remembering a dozen more that I need to do on top of it -_- Not to mention that where I've been ill I need to catch up on work if I'm going to get paid next month, only I still feel too grotty most of the time to do anything....

Phew, I feel a bit better now...

Wow! That's really rude! And if that's the actual wording of the comment, sounds like they were being a huge dick about it too!

Well, as he got my heckles up I didn't include the smiley faces he used, but why do people think that smiley faces soften blows anyway? Upon further investigation he's not a native english speaker, to the point where he has titles some artwork using racial slurs -_- So maybe I overreacted and he's just an idiot XD I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it rude though

Following on from my eyelets post in the costume help section, I'm going to rant about my quest for said eyelets!

It took ages, but I found some on a UK based craft website and placed an order on Sunday 7th October. So a week and a half later I have still not received them and they are not answeing my emails. Tried phoning them today but their number doesn't work (surprise) and left a message on their facebook page.

It didn't cost me much, but it's the principle! And the fact that I need them to finish my costume and have to try and find them from somewhere else.

If I don't get a response by the Expo, I will name and shame...

Why are siblings so bloody unhelpful? I've been looking after my Mum now since about July, when she got her Breast Cancer diagnosis, and have essentially been her carer since she started Chemo. I've had to sort the sickness, to give her meds, to clean up the mess, to make sure she eats, to be up half the night, to take her to appointments, to calm her down when she starts freaking out about her hair having fallen out… It's a full time job, and nowhere in all of this, has my brother done a single damn thing to help.

He just goes out with his friends, or buggers off to Huddersfield for weeks at a time so he doesn't have to deal with it - since he can't 'cope' with Mum being so ill. Yet at five months pregnant I apparently can?! I've let it slide for weeks now, because he was told from the very beginning that I was going away from the 25th to the 29th, and my Mum agreed that it was only fair to be given some degree of a break before I burn out.

Yet lo and behold, my *insert expletive here* brother, has now decided that he doesn't know if he's going to be at home, because he might go over to Hudds again. Thus meaning, no Expo, no break, no time to myself and no chance of regaining some shred of sanity - because unlike him, I do have a problem with leaving someone that clearly needs someone there, alone. What happens if her temp spikes to signal infection in someone with no immunity? I hardly think someone that struggles to get out of bed post Chemo is going to be in a fit state to ring a doctor, or take herself to the hospital. ><

So I'm just stuck until he makes a decision, because I really don't know what he's playing at. And I'm sick of being at his mercy for living my life. She's his Mum too, and he should start to damn well act like it. ;_;
