What am I getting myself into?

Okay. Okay.

So, the scales are tipping even closer to agreeing to do one idea for Costume Con. Mock-up line art (and by mock up, I mean tracing and super-awesome MS Paint skills combined with a red permanent marker) has proven to be.... nice. Very nice. Also, terrifying, because if I can pull this off, I will be.... well, probably broke, and more than a little loopy.
What am I thinking?
I'm thinking, let's add some LEDs in there too.
Oh, that's a good idea.

I might have made a decision.

I think I might have figured out my Costume Con costumes for CC35.

I think

.... If I can pull them off, they could be quite grand.

This means research. Lots of research.

Okay you.

Dear self,

It's been a month since Con season came to a close. You therefore should have more creative free time on your hands, (though, admittedly October is always very busy with non-creative things) and you have accomplished one thing thus far. Yes, the little box pleated skirt you have put aside for over a year was finished, but really, that was just the hemming needing done.

Now then. Perhaps, you could take a little time to get some other things done? Some suggestions are: The bodice for the Ouat red riding hood costume you never finished? That Tardis box pleated skirt you said you'd make? How about Costume Con 35? I do distinctly recall that since you had a second chance, you'd make more than one costume this time around. You should consider getting on that too, since you have what, a year and half left? That's not that much time, you know.

Okay, how about this? You finish one project before Christmas and I'll give you a warm sense of accomplishment. How does that sound?


Your self
