11 more days. Only 11 more days until I leave for Sakura-Con. I feel like time keeps slipping out of my fingers, and I still have so much to do!
Fortunately, the Mercury dress is complete save for hemming. I’m so happy it’s finished, but goodness it was difficult. I’m seriously thinking of swapping dresses with another member of the group since I’m not completely sure I want to wear the dress after everything it’s put me through. ~_~ That and the design is kinda awkward for well endowed females. >_<
If all goes well I should finish Toki and Mercury today. Toki just needs the belt and head wrap while Mercury needs the shoulder gems made and attached and dress hemmed. I need to find a good pair of heels for her too.
Child Rydia is coming along well too. Most of the pieces are almost, if not, complete save for minor detailing and beading. Hopefully, I can finish most of her today except for the leotard beading which I may finish on the way to the con. Hopefully, I will have it complete beforehand.
I haven’t even touched Chie, Shiemi, Sheryl, or Akari. Thankfully, I have all the fabric I need for each of them. Chie, Shiemi, and Sheryl shouldn’t be too difficult to complete. *crosses fingers* Chie mainly just needs a pleated skirt and jacket. Shiemi needs a pleated skirt, embellished tie, and modified shirt. Sheryl needs a red dress with gold necklace and maybe white jacket if I can find the right style at a low price.
Akari on the other hand is a different story. If I don’t sleep for the next week it will be due to her and Chie’s jacket. Thankfully, I have experience making her underdress. The reason I’m not using the previously made underdress is because it mysteriously went missing. I seriously have no idea where it is. ;_; That and I wanted to remake the underdress anyway. Overall, her ensemble shouldn’t be difficult to make though it will be time consuming due to the detailing and shoes. I have no idea how I’m going to make them.
To sum up this frantically typed post, I have a lot to do before Sakura-Con and probably won’t be sleeping much until then, if then. A note to the wise, never wait until the last minute. It’s not worth it. Always plan ahead what you need to do and how it will take to do so. It’s never fun scrambling to finish costumes before and/or during the con.
