The Time of the Con.
(Anybody get that Doctor Who reference? Time of the Angels? Anybody?)
Anyway, as the only con that I go to all year (having no car and no monies and no anythings to get myself anywhere else), I look forward to Animazement from the moment it ends after memorial day weekend. And it is here again. For once, I ordered my ticket ahead of time and started my cosplay before the week of the con. And thus, our story starts...
Since Animazement is only once a year, theoretically, I have all year to make the best damn cosplay that anybody has ever seen. Man, the best damn cosplay. All year to do it. And I wait until May, the month of the con, and my sewing machine decides to be a complete bastard. Yes, a complete bastard. Maybe I'm just thick and can't figure out how to use it correctly, or maybe I'm just a bad sewer, but that machine has declared WAR!
I sadly remember the first cosplay I ever did for Animazement- I stapled it together the DAY OF THE CON. Never again. I could hot glue this shit together... if I had a hot glue gun. Without any of these tools, it will likely be hand sewn, my friends. Hand sewn.
And since I know you're all quivering in your seats, wondering who I am going to cosplay as, I will tell you.
Sai, from Hikaru no Go.
No, not Sai, that asshole from Naruto: Shippuden. Sai, the over-a-thousand-year-old ghost that teaches a kid how to play the world's oldest and most complicated board game: Go. (Which, by the way, is the greatest game ever.)
This guy is pretty cool. And no, he is not a girl. Today I ordered my wig and fan, and I got my fabric from Hancock Fabric's yesterday. The time has come... for the cosplay.
I don't know why I do this to myself- why I wait until the last minute to make the cosplay with a broken sewing machine, but I do. AND IT'S TIME, DAMMIT. I'M GONNA DO THIS SHIT.
Maybe I'll post in a few days to tell you how pathetically little I've done (or maybe that I've magically finished the cosplay- HA!) If I have a camera with me, maybe I'l make a tutorial. That'd be fun.
Goodbye for now, bloggers.
