..WHY do I always end up doing this to myself.

~

Days left until Dragon*Con: 6 5 4 3 2 1


Costume completion level: about 40% 55% 61% 73% 85%


Freaking out a little: very yes still sort-of yes but maybe starting to think eh, one more late night & I got dis


8| 8| 8|



ALSO


ALSO IF I EVER MEET THE ARTIST AND/OR CHARACTER DESIGNER WHO CREATED THE COSTUME I'M MAKING


I THINK I WILL PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE


AND THE COLORIST TOO


BECAUSE AS I'VE SAID BEFORE


CHANGING LINES AND THE COLOUR OF DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE OUTFIT EVERY OTHER FRAME IS ABSOLUTELY MADDENING AND I JUST I CAN'T EVEN





EDIT: AND DONE. 99% anyway--still have to add one last decorative button (would like to add three more, but...I don't have that many, orz). I'd've gone ahead and added it tonight, but after so much sewing + a VERY long day at the library, my fingertips are all super sore. It...actually really hurts just typing this, lol /whimp

*FLAIL!!*

Are you going to hate me for bringing homework with me? I hope not... I hate myself for it already, but hoping to get it done in the airport/on plane, maybe. Other than reading Little Women. I don't think I'll be able to finish that there. It will be my book to carry around con. Of call books, that one seems out of place. Lol!

I want it to be Wednesday now, plz. But after I work this 16 hr shift, because I will need the money as I have nothing on Sunday or Monday (except job cancellations!) and am only getting 8 hrs in on Tuesday (cash from my private family) so no paycheck for next week! EEK!

Oh, guess who had to buy 4 brand new tires yesterday with her rent money? Yeah... that was awesome... Hopefully my financial aid overage hits my account Tuesday or Wednesday like it's supposed to! Then I will be able to pay rent and have food at con!!

lol Of course not. I also have homework that I really SHOULD do like, now, and will have to do sometime this w/e. Sucks. =\

And once I finish my costume, if you don't mind, I shall have to press you into service as my photographer--there are a few pictures I already know I want, and...my mum is not very good with a camera, ahaha. |D;

And YEAH I need to work this w/e and T/W of next week, too...because paying for my two college classes absolutely wiped out my bank account. 8'C

...UGH, I hate surprise!car-costs. :[ GO FINANCIAL AID, GO!

I did give you my flight times, right? So you know when to pick me up and send me away?

I suppose I can try to photograph you. I'm not great, but I can point and click.

Yup, yup, I have them! PLZ PLZ PLZ DON'T FORGET THE LOTR GAME--SO EXCITED ABOUT THAT TOO 8DDD

..So long's you're not constantly getting your thumb in the frame, or else taking accidental shots of your feet or up your nose...then you've already got a significant amount more skill than poor darling Mumsie-dear. XD

In fact, I can point and click with the best of them!!

(of course I'm not saying that I'm one of the best of them, or that my pics will be as good, but I can stand next to them and point and click just fine!!!)

ilu!

1 day = 20%, so two days = 40% = finished, right? 8D

[identity profile] alory-shannon.livejournal.com 2011-08-29 03:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, it should, but what's left is a lot of the detail work, which...is going to be a HUGE pain in the butt and will probably take longer than it should, because it always does.

oooooooh! I was worrying a bit since I hadn't heard from you in a bit. Life is calming down for me now. I want to hear all about this when you get back! I think a skype session is in order so I can get the full effect of your squees. :D

I miss you.
