Can't sleep...costume will eat me...  
Well, not quite, but that would have been a good subject earlier this week. I see the light at the end of the tunnel, though. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

Horn - Needs to dry just a tad, and then I can sand the end and paint it (tomorrow).

Pauldron #2 - Has been ringed. Gets its final sanding and couple of coats of Mod Podge on the bottom tomorrow. Will be paintable tomorrow night. I decided that I'm going to use E-6000, large snaps, and non-roll elastic to get the pauldrons in a wearable state.

Glove #1 - Except for minor tailoring, the sewing is done, and I'm pretty happy with it.

Glove #2 - The sleeve and one seam of the blue thingy around the palm are sewn.

My shoulder seems to be getting better. I can still make it click, but at least it doesn't hurt. I'm not going to do any heavy upper-body lifting until after ACEN is over, though. Hell, I'm having trouble making it to the gym now. Earlier this week, I was even having trouble going to bed on time. Wednesday really sucked because I'd gotten around four hours of sleep on both of the previous nights, so I was chugging coffee like a psycho to attempt to get myself to think. (Don't worry, Mom, that was just one day. I'm not a caffeine-holic. Really. =P) Oh, and to make matters even more fun, I was driving myself nucking futs at random times during the day trying to figure out how to securely attach tubular fur fingers to a horizontal piece of fabric. It made me so happy when I went home and found out that it wasn't difficult to machine-sew them on neatly.

Oh, and I have a good picture of the horn and a rather crappy one of the glove (Randox is out and about, so I couldn't bug him to help me take it). Look in my cosplay.com gallery to see. ^_^

HEy..forgot to mention...

Make sure you and any other cosplayers come by my booth. I'll use my mad photo skills to photo you and stick you on the site in my Otakon article. (If you want of course.)

I should post this on the announcement tonight. Yes, must remmeber.
