I'm only working/going to school 3 days a week and while yes those are 13 hour days you would think having 4 days off would afford me lots and lots of time. But somehow those days get filled up with thousand of errands and extras that need to get done, or people we need to see. OR I have to take time out for photo shoots for my class, which isn't bad but takes time. I'm starting to think I will have nothing new to wear for costume college. Not having a new Gala gown is making me extremely upset.
That and other stressors make whatever free time I do have non productive because I'm usually paralysed with the stress or fighting off panic attacks. It hasn't been very fun at all. I'm trying to kick it because I refuse to be down at CoCo. So I've been trying to figure out ways to revamp old costumes. Or QUICK costumes. Do you guys have any ideas?
I am determined to finish my Star Wars dress and fallout character, but I'm scrapping the winter fairy. My dad is going to help me with the wings. So next year, prepare to be amazed.
And so this is not just a depressing, I suck post. Pics from my class.

Deep breaths hon!

What about your Capt America bustle outfit that you wore to the ball? That was so cute! You could add more accessories or hair doodads if you felt you needed to make it different.

Ditto your Regency outfit. You could even take advantage of a friend's sale and add one of these...

And for sure wear the outfit in the last two pics, you look SO COOL.

Hang in there!

LOVE the pics! There is a seriously awesome comic book vibe coming from them. No ideas, but I hope you think of something you like for the Gala. *fingers crossed that inspiration strikes*

How about an early Regency open robe over your white dress? I'm always amazed at how easy they are to put together (like Vanessa and her saris) but how spectacular. Really a genius idea. Plus lots of bling and bob's your uncle.

Your Red Riding Hood is awesome! Also Ginger's sari Regency open robe idea sounds like a quick way to get new bling to the Gala.

You look AMAZING in those photos!

Yay CoCo! I say that because it's now looking like I'm DEFINITELY coming next year...

As for this year, I know the feeling of "I have to have something new!" but I also know the satisfaction of revisiting and fixing/adding to something you've worn before. My steampunk ball dress was like that the second time I wore it.. :)

*hugs* I'm stressing too about not having a new thing to wear to the Gala, so I really feel you. But we will have a blast no matter what!
