I am back in Japan. Okay I have been back for a couple days but it took me those couple days to get everything unpacked and put away. Catch up on the whirlwind that is my life right now and update my website/dress diaries.
Costume Con was cool. Not exactly what I was expecting but I think I was more geared towards a bigger Con. I also think some of my problem is I am
a social reject really shy. If I could get over that I am sure things would be a tad more fun. An example is
I very much enjoyed EVERYONE else's costumes which I know I wouldn't have seen at the bigger Cons. Mostly because there is no reason for a historical costume there. And that was by far some of my favorite parts!!!!! I have decided I really need to enter a masqurade. Not sure for what but that is where the fun seemed to be.
I was very pleased with how the Japanese Regency came out. Much Much Much thanks to aviendiora . She helped me so much with getting it done. I was a bit upset that hers was not able to get finished also, especially after all the help she had given me. She insists that it was okay because she had lots of other costumes to wear. I think I still owe her. My steampunk still needs ALOT of work but it was fun to get to wear it out for awhile. I need to completely redo the corset. The instructions I used were not the best. At least not for the fabric I used. I want to redo the chemise also. Not enough poof at the chest. I have also decided there must be a bolero with this outfit. The picture was taken at the end of the day when the wool of the apron had begun to irritate me and I had taken off the cute Lolita hat so the people behind me in the masqurade would still be able to see.
I also wore my Regency gown but it seems no pictures were taken of that one.
In other news, my husband has been fighting with his chain of command while I was gone. He final got fed up and jumped them to talk to his detailer himself. Its a good thing he did. We will be going to San Diego after all!!!!!!!!!! It won't be for him to go to school which is what we wanted but we will be in San Diego and not out on our butts with no jobs. This makes me very very happy because it gives us time to get ourselves set up with housing, jobs, school before we are thrown out of the military system completely.
And of course greedy me is already thinking Comic Con!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which we will be going to. We just need to figure out hotel/accomadations stuff.
