3 Weekends of costume making left until Expo.
GUH.

3 Weekends of pain left until we have to be in london. I've got to fix two costumes, make three, AND build a master sword.

So everyone else- tell me your making woes!

Because I just realised. So I'm like "FUUUUUCK".

Miki and Sakura I'm not worried about. Miki's an easy costume and Sakura is practically complete anyway, just got to sew on more coins [loads of fallen off!], finish headband and then the additional details like scarf thing are just extras so are optional to make ^_^

What I'm really worried about is my Steiner cosplay! T___T
It's no where near finished! I didn't know there was only 3 weeks left!! PANIC PANIC PANIC! What's worst is that coursework is piling up so I don't have much time to finish it, I wish there was another school holiday BEFORE expo! D8

I'm pretty much done.

I'm going to remake my belt for Feena, but that'll just take an evening. Painting may take an extra one, but not a lot of time.

And remaking my gloves for Sailor Jupiter will only take an evening too.

29 Sep 2008 - 00:166475
ffffffffffffff

I'm two tops, two hats, a piece of boob armour, four t-shirt's, one styled wig, some boots and a blazer away from finishing.

I'm a grand into my overdraft and term starts tomorrow.

It's not looking good. HERE'S HOPING ;D

As long as my Selphie dress arrives in time from the states I'm going to be fine. Her zipper detail and boots adjustments won't take too much time.
Going to re-do Rinoa's shorts & skirt but as long as I get materials soon that'll only take one weekend if that.

Only thing that's worrying me is I want to get a wig for Rinoa this year to save dying my hair. However having trouble finding one in the right style and colour and I need to find one quick in case it has to come from outside the country >_<

I'm far more worried about the Grand Cosplay Ball... argggghhh embroidery, wings and pleating chiffon

Good luck everyone~


29 Sep 2008 - 07:506478
It's not 3 weeks exactly- it's three WEEKENDS. I'm just using them as a unit of measurement because most of my stuff has to be done on weekends.

Ah but Reiss, in three weeks you could make a whole army of costumes - I mean, isn't your usual trick to start about three hours before they're required and then run onto stage in the middle of the masquerade, still working on it?

Hehe funny funny

As for me, I am working on my Cosplay Ball outfit atm - trying to get it together for a different ball in aaagggh less than two weeks!! Expo is a fortnight after that so I very much doubt I'll have time to make a brand new costume, so I will probably just rewear something. Probably. Maybe. Oh, I don't know!

I still need to make mittens, shoe covers, the hood and a hammer. The hammer and mittens won't be a problem, it's the covers I'm worried about. I'm not entirely sure how do to it.

http://www.smashbros.com/en_uk/characters/iceclimbers.html

The footwear is a little unusual and I've never made covers before.

Yeah I'm panicing.

Just wondering, did you try seeing if they have any pink sweets in shape of a dummy? I can try and elaborate if you don't know what you mean but you can usually find them in Woolworths ^_^
Okay so I'm not 100% sure if they do them in pink but you could buy say... strawberry flavour and paint the plastic bit pink. They're only like 80p and they taste really nice too 8D

Three weekends is a panic for me because I only really work on cosplay over the weekends ;_;
Although I don't have to go hunting for a cheap broom pole anymore as special-pleb is giving me one, yaay 8D [in exchange with me helping her with her pleated skirt but I love making pleated skirts so it's a-okay 8D]

My friends making my saturday costume this weekend whilst she lives with me, and I've only got a few details to change on P.Sasuke - like add the symbol, lmao. Gloves and stuff to be bought, but they're from Claires easy. I don't know whether I should bother adding a purple butt bow to my P.Sasuke dress, if i decide that'll probably be stressy!

And, Millia all lies on whether my wig arrives soon!
I bought it from CosWorx about 2 weeks ago, when do you think it will arrive?

mm.... i know whatcha mean but after a while sucking it it'll go all gross and sticky and i don't wanna be sucking it all day! >w< i might buy a 2 pack, both pink and then i'll have a back up if i lose one at expo or VGL... for some strange reason.... XD

in anycase, i actually started my dress today. nothing but working out the patterns but i can cut fabric later on. and sew it together tommorrow evening. the only complicated bits will be the frilly edges and sleeves..... last time my cosplay had sleeves i ripped down both sides... as Mocha will remember. XD
