So since the last time I posted, I haven't made a ton of progress on anything Dragon*Con related. That's cause I was busy bein' in a movie. It wasn't a big deal, I was just a random extra which means I'll mostly just be a fuzzy blob in the background, but that's ok. I mostly did it cause, well, they were paying me! :) The long and short of it is that I was there somewhere between 12-16 hours a day, I got injured pretty badly thanks to some other extra who wasn't paying attention, and it took me 2 days of sleep after wrap to feel normal again. My leg is finally almost healed and my cold is getting better, so it's time to kick things into high gear again.
And that basically means that I'm just about to freak out. I have so many other peoples costumes that I'm working on that I haven't had a chance to 1. practice for the 2 shows 2. really think through my panel or the costume contest 3. work on my own costumes 4. exercise so I actually fit in my costumes :(  I can't even imagine if I had a permanent steady job how anything would have gotten done. That does not bode well for next year. I think next year I may have to call a moratorium on commissions for costumes. Like for everyone not me. Otherwise I don't see how I could pull this off ever again (unless somehow I become rich and never need to work again. ha).
Luckily I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel on everyone else's stuff. The only things not done are Zig's Graverobber coat and Meg's 2 dresses and all 3 of those are close. Meg tried stuff on and all I have left is to hem stuff, add in zippers, velcro, and hooks and eyes on both of those. Ziggy's coat is all stitched together as of tonight and just needs her to try it on before I can hem it and add the giant fur lapels of doom. Ah, and then it's on to all the stuff I'm actually doing as staff, lol.
Why is there less than 2 weeks to D*C? WHY?
