[DANCER] Construction Scedule

1. December 2017:

1. 4th -10th
2. 11th - 17th
3. 18th - 24th (?)

2. January 2018:

4. 1st - 7th (?)
5. 8th - 14th
6. 15th - 21st
7. 22nd - 28th

Either - 7 Weeks (49 Days)
OR - 5 Weeks (35 Days)

I need approximately 17 to 20 days to make this costume; 30 days to be safe in case of any mishaps or miscalculations of how long it will take to do a task (like me thinking it will take a day and it actually takes 2). Obviously, I will have days in that timescale where I have hospital/dr's appointments and other obligations that mean I can't work on it every day and I'm not sure which days I'm taking off for Christmas and New Years' yet so it might change a bit but provisionally, provided I knuckle down and just get on with it and I don't do something foolish like fully dislocate my shoulder again (which has already delayed construction by a month) then this should be doable in 1 to 2 months. There was a time when I would con-crunch something like this out in a week before the con, but I'm trying my best not to fall into that behaviour pattern again.

So...

I should be able to do:

1. Prep-Work and Wig
2. Pattern Drafting and Cutting
3. Accessories
4. Shoes
5. Cosplay Testing and Any Adjustments

Over about 5 weeks if I concentrate and work on it a little bit every day, but still take a few days off each week.

Motivation

FFV is one of my favourite Final Fantasy games and Krile is my favourite character from it. I want to eventually cosplay pretty much all the main Player Characters from FF5, but I'm going to start with Krile. I also want to cosplay a number of different varations of Krile which I will probably add onto this costume listing as and when I make them in an effort to keep things tidy and together; Dancer class is my favourite class and I'm an aspiring dancer/performer/circus artist irl, so it's as good a place to start as any. I may or may not have plans to cosplay pretty much every Dancer and Dancing Girl variant in the Final Fantasy Universe....
