Of course, my car has to start being a total ass just a few days before I plan on taking a trip. Seriously, why does it wait like this? When dad went to get my new tires put in, I asked to realign the steering. They said they couldn't do it because the barrings were almost non-existent. I didn't know what that meant, but dad said he would get it fixed eventually. Well, now I know what that means. I thought I was imagining things when I had to overcorrect my steering. I thought I was just being a bad driver, but it appears that the worn away barrings are what's causing it. Today, my car started to shake a lot, and the steering is even worse. I don't trust driving it to Dana's apartment Thursday, so I'm going to see if mom will let me take her car. I've already checked the City of Chicago website to see if she has any unpaid parking tickets, and she doesn't. So I have no risk of getting another boot on my car, which is good.

Of course, I could just be paranoid about driving that car. But until it's had massive extensive work done on it, I'll never stop being paranoid about it.

Found 2 boxes at work that will safety fit Zangetsu, plus enough bubblewrap to really protect it. Still have to call TSA to find out more tips on what I should do to avoid being thought of as a terrorist with my huge sword. Went looking for a Davy Jones heart, couldn't find one. I may just have to go to Murray's, or ask Jen really nicely to do it for me.

hahayousuck, I hate you :( You're going to PMX instead of seeing me? I was looking forward to seeing you so badly. You make me a sad panda ;_; I hope you enjoy your time at PMX and not getting jiggy with me U.U

herophelia, your hotel money has been sent!

Uhm, is there anything else I need to do before Thursday? Anyone have any more cosplay accessory requests of me?

Looking over the YCon program, there's a Bleach panel at 10 am. If I can get my arse out of bed and into Urahara in time, I'd love to go to that one. Then change into Harry for our panel, and then into Jack XD Wee, 3 costumes in one day! OMG, insane. Good thing it only takes like, 2 seconds to get in and out of both Harry and Urahara.

Oh, and I'm so getting that real metal Zangetsu and bringing it to PR. Yes, I want to be Ichigo at PR, especially on the ghost tour XD And since PR doesn't have any prop restrictions it's going to be OMG AWESUM.

Dad and I just took my car to get fixed. Hopefully, if my cards are played right, it'll be back in time to take it to Dana's by Thursday night. It seemed likely that it would be back, hopefully, tomorrow night.

We got our inkjet enlargment printer up and running today. I printed out an 11x17 of the Rip Slyme Galaxy-inspired star fingers from ACen and it looked very pretty. A little blurry, but not too bad. I want to make biiiig, pretty pictures now. Mmmn, poster sized prints ... *drool*

Oh, and I made business cards. They have pictures of me on them and my cosplay handle and e-mail address. They look uber. I can't wait to hand them out to people at YCon! I've got Urahara ones, Harry ones, Vincent ones, and Kozi ones. I should make a few Jack ones ... hrmmm ...

JOURNAL SPAAAAAAAAAM

Ok, so I haven't done this for a while, mostly because I thought I'd grown out of this phase in cosplay. But I feel ... crazy tonight and want to give my opinion of AX pictures someone just uploaded to the cosplay LJ comm. Most of them are good comments, but I can't be held responsible if something BAD is said ... so, on to the pictures!Collapse )

Ok, so there was a lot more criticism in this than originally expected. I'm rather surprised there wasn't too much Bleach, but maybe this photographer didn't really capture everyone at AX. I know there were probably a billion of them out there.

Anyways, I think the Mt. Dew kick is wearing off o_O
