Prepping for PAX East by doing the one thing I told myself I wouldn't make the same mistake and repeat from last year: last minute a costume. And instead of a month, I gave myself 2 weeks. >.> I swear this is not normal for me (as she says with an innocent smile). This really was "I have two weeks and all of this spandex. Let's try and put something together!" And so I did.
For the most part, I give myself a reasonable amount of time to work on a project (2-5 months depending upon the complexity). And if it's not something that I'm proud of making, I won't wear it. But I'm happy with the outcome of this project (Angel -- Borderlands 2). There are tweaks to be made with the front and back armor-esque pieces, and the sleeves were edited to accommodate my bust (which is more then what Angel has) but as a whole, this is damn fine for 2 weeks of work.
I'll be at East all 3 days this year, and if you're in the area, SAY HI! I should be really easy to spot. Just look for a woman with a half-shaved head or the group of Asari's that will be hanging around the BioWare base and Mass Effect Cast Cosplay group on Saturday. You can't miss. Other then, no plans on what I'll be doing, seeing, or attending. I hope to get more time on the expo floor this year.
