Fairly certain as to what I'll be wearing, although waiting on confirmation from a friend :/

Saturday: "Summer Style" Jaegermonster from Girl Genius

Sunday: Haunted Scarecrow [Female] (pieced together design riffing off the Wizard of Oz universe)

Taking into account how hot it was last May in the preparation for this year >_<

I cannot emphasize enough that you need to keep hydrated throughout the day/weekend - my friend got heatstroke and I passed out last year because we weren't prepared for the weather, and even if it isn't that warm you'll be feeling it later if you don't have enough fluid. It can also get pretty stuffy in the hall, so take some time out to go outside and recharge once in a while.

Me! My costume is pretty much there but I too want to make a prop (just read your latest journal entry) and really need to get cracking on it over the weekend and/or next week.

I decided to swap things round a bit and cosplay Togami on Saturday and Barnaby on Sunday instead. I think I often plan cosplays for Friday cause I'm just so excited to wear them ASAP, but it's actually a better idea to wait til sat/sun for that... haha.

I usually enjoy them tbh but like you say, it's when you have time on your side to do them well. Tempted to just bring guns but idk if they'll be eye-catching enough *le sigh* Good luck with all your gubbins!~

Aaaaaahhh so we have a week left ^^ All I have to do now is cut/style my wig and wait for my boots to arrive which should totally be here very soon.

I had such a terrible dream this morning that I woke up and it was like 11am on expo Saturday and I was like OMG I NEED TO GET TO LONDON AND NOTHING IS READY and I was desperately attacking my wig with hairspray and trying to find my train tickets and stuff and then I realized they were only valid at like 7am and I was like 'NOOOOOOOOOO'

I actually woke up in a cold sweat x__x but I was so relieved

I was trying on my costume yesterday and at one point or another had that feeling of unease, as if it was the Saturday of the expo and I was just wandering around my own house doing nothing. It was scary!

Still got quite a bit to do, my wig's getting finished today and then I've got the three hardest bits to finish off between now and next weekend; the boots, the sword/sheath and the armour.
