handholding

Taking it easy, one day at a time.

I've finally gone back to work, last night was my first day back and it felt really good. Things were a little maddening, the store was a rather big mess, and I was rather tired at the end of it all. But I survived and all was good.

Dobby grandma gave me the most amazing present today, and something that finishes my super secret costume for ACen. I'm stoked, now I actually have a finished costume! Well, it's almost finished. A dye job and a little altering, in an hour it'll be done.

I've spent the last 3 days working on a commissioned costume, which is now 90% done and I'm super happy with for having only taken 3 days. Not my best work, then again it was a quickie. Then I've got the top to my Izuru costume, and Irvine about 50% complete and ACen cosplay is DONE. With luck, I'll have it all done before May.

Speaking of May, holy crap I can't wait to see X-Men Origins. I haven't been keeping up with that at all, and I've just seen the AMAZING trailer. Ho shit, definitely have to see that.

I really hope I don't burn myself out with this one con that I SWORE I wouldn't go mad with, costume wise. I've made 4 costumes, 3 from scratch. Then I have all of May and June to finish the ... 4, maybe 5 costumes for Azkatraz. And then I've got August to work on 2 or 3 costumes for D*C. I guess my average is 2 costumes a month. That's a bit nuts, for me at least.

*sigh* Time to rest before work. At least I'm not closing tonight!
