It’s been a while since I actually updated about my DragonCon preparations, mostly because I’ve been so dang busy actually doing the preparations. I’m about 11 days away, but my 11 days is shortened to about 3 in reality, because I have to work 8 10 hour shifts between now and actually leaving. Who’s overwhelmed and panicking? This girl.

Here’s what I actually have left to do:

Cosplay

  • Finish painting Jack and River’s guns.
  • Finish River’s Nerf Steampunk Alpha Meson Blaster mod.
  • Attempt to alter the hemline of River’s skirt.
  • Purchase boots for River’s costume and holsters for both Jack and River.
  • Style River’s wig.

Food

  • Make onigiri.
  • Make two main dishes for bentos.
  • Pack and freeze four bentos.

Other

  • Pack. (Funny cause I actually have to UNPACK from where I house sat for a friend for two weeks first so I can repack. Also, I probably need to buy a suitcase or two and potentially laundry.)
  • Check the DragonCon app for updates and PRAY it did not lose all of my data like it did the last time it updated. Finish marking panels I want to attend.
  • Blog about the Alpha Meson mod, final costume pics, and make-up design.
  • Prep my scrapbooking stuff to take with me.
  • Have a breakdown and cry.

And that’s it. No big deal right? OH GOD WHO AM I KIDDING?! I’LL NEVER GET DONE IN TIME. Oh, look! I can mark “Have a breakdown and cry.” off my list. I feel accomplished already.
