Hello!

I know we have a "who are you going as" thread, but I kinda wanted to make a thread based on our progress! How much more do you have left to do as the convention is a little over a month away?!

I still have a long away to go!

-Style 11th Doctors wig
-Make 11th doctors jacket
-Make my friends River Song cosplay
-Finish Orochimaru's bow
-Finish my friends Tsunade cosplay
-Make my husbands Jiraiya wig
-style my friends Tsunade wig
-Style orochimaru's wig
-Buy lots of makeup because its been a while
-Practice contouring makeup because I really suck at it :(

How about you guys? What do you have left to do???

Current To-Do list:
FINISH ELENA
-Make her armwarmers
-embrioder the headpiece parts and attach them onto the other part, ect.

-Get white boots for Gudako
-Figure out what in the world my con schedule will be.
-Contact all of the photographers. >.>

It doesn't look too bad written out but Elena is a lot of work, haha.

I hate when I'm still finishing big parts of my cosplays so close to the con, and yet, here I am doing it again.
To do:
-sew steampunk!Alice blouse/skirt (at least everything is cut out)
-find a stinking 7-inch invisible zipper in the right color
-finish goggles for Alice
-figure out how to attach props to belt
-figure out makeup for Alice
-fix cake for GLaDOS
-borrow boots for GLaDOS
On top of this, I need to help my friend with her cosplay(steampunk!Red Riding Hood), which she really hasn't started:
-finish wolf tail
-help her find pieces for her cosplay
-help her alter said pieces
-figure out/make more props for her

I know, right? I try to keep Sunday afternoons free for sewing, but unexpected stuff keeps popping up @[email protected]

I always tell my parents that one month before I'm super busy, and theyre like "oh well lets meet for lunch every saturday!"

and I'm like.... you live an hour away from me that's like... taking up my whole day!!!!!! and then Sundays I'm normally spending cleaning my house (I have 4 cats, 4 parrots, a dog, and a rabbit!) so I lose the weekends, so I have to stay up super late during the week to get anything done and I'm just like RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA lol!

In the same boat. My grad class assignments are starting to kick in hard. My guesstimate tells me I should be fine but who knows at this point.

I got really frustrated trying to make the goggles for Alice, so I broke down and bought a pair. I'm just going to replace the elastic band with a belt I found.

Yeah, I feel like I should finish just on time, too, but I always prepare for the worst.

Yep, life likes to get in the way, doesn't it? I have a small menagerie myself, so I understand how that goes. I try to keep my priorities straight, so cosplay tends to get pushed into the back. But I want Alice to be done, so I will pull all-nighters if need be!!!

#9 DespairedPheonix on 2 years ago

3 weeks to go and... I finished Orochimaru. Still need to finish everything else ;_;

#10 Royalbakaness on 2 years ago

Just about one week more!
I've finished the belts and props for Alice, as well as the blouse. I've got the back of the skirt just about done, so I've got maybe half of the skirt left.
Still to be done:
-fix the Anger Core on GLaDOS
-make a "Drink Me" label (remembered this last minute)
-find something to store/transport my cake in
-buy last minute makeup and supplies
I keep remembering things I need to do or get. Need to get my act together!!!

#11 DespairedPheonix on 2 years ago

Tsunade WAS done, but then my friend tried it on and the coat was wayyyy too short. So I have to redo that.
I finished the Doctor.
I finished Orochimaru (although I need to find where his pants went >_>;; )
I styled all of my wigs.

I still have to:
-make River's Dress
-Make Tsunade's coat
-Make Jiraiya
-Do some last minute shopping for cosmetics and stuff
-Win a million dollars so I can do this again next year xP

...did I mention I leave in a week? @[email protected]

This.
Yep, a week to go. Blaaaah. I'm in a desperate search for 2-inch brown lace to cover up some errors on my skirt. I've got another store to search through before I have to get more creative...

#13 DespairedPheonix on 2 years ago

Just finished Tsunade. Gotta finish River and Jiraiya this weekend *deep breath*

#14 TMLiza on 2 years ago

Hope everyone is doing okay with getting stuff done!

I'm actually all set in terms of cosplay. Just need to pack everything!
