it is now 5 weeks until Ayacon
My cosplays are as follows.

Friday Night - Pinkie Pie
Saturday - Princess Cadence - Wedding Version
Saturday Night - Abbey Bominable
Sunday - Operetta
Guess how many are finished
that's right! None!
And I'm doing cosplay Chess on Sunday as Operetta too, so I'm getting worried about having her done and good enough, not to mention i still need to work out my "attacks" on the other chess pieces I'm taking out in the game
on top of that, i've got my boyfriend's cosplays that he needs my help with, and making clothes for/Blushing his BJD, AND housework, AND keeping my parents happy, AND my ask Cadence tumblr!
The main bits of Operetta that are missing is her arm tattoo, shoe heels, Eyemask, Wig, and Accessories. Now when you take into account the fact that I have the shoes, wig and bits for accessories, it's not that bad, but then add in the fact that i have NO IDEA how to do her shoes, her Eyemask is very hit-and-miss at the moment, and i've never styled a wig before...
Cadence is all up in the air, she's been the one I've been dying to get finished. She's got a new wig 'cos I didn't like the old one I had anymore, wasn't long enough and it just looked awful...
I need to fashion a belt 'cos my base dress has lovely detailing along the bustline, I don't want to cover that up, so I'm shifting Cadence's neckline to a belt. but that's not even drafted out!
Abbey was all systems Go until I hit a road block. Most of her is done, I just need to re-work her furry boots and headband, but the wig threw a spanner in the works, 'cos it was so thin! you could see my head through it, even in a nude wig-cap. so I've bought another, and wig wefts to sew into it. I'm sculpting her teeth, so that's fun >< I've got her makeup otherwise so Woo!
Rainbow Dash, Don't get me started on Rainbow Dash!
Most of her is done to be honest, I just need to work out a pattern to sew her top so it looks nice and I don't waste the lovely material i have. The biggest part, besides her top, is probably styling her wig to look nice, and getting her Rollerblades all customed from red to blue
No issues there, Cut wig, Balloons on her skirt, all done.
