'Sup guys? Not much time inbetweem updates but whatevs.
Real Life: Still no money back into the moving fund, all due to a lack of hours at work than my spending habits. Because of the income hit, I'm in debt with my mother and I'm honestly concerned that I won't be able to afford Geek.Kon...and I told myself I'd go hell or high water because it lets me have quality time with my partner...*sigh*
My house looks so empty with my family starting to pack things away. I will likely follow suit, but with just things on my walls for now and my figurines to come shortly thereafter. I have some things to go through in the garage, but that will have to come later.
I'm on a list for a low income apartment. Here's to hoping I can get one by the time the fam moves, I just can't bring myself to go with them. I hope they let me have my cat at this place, I know I will need the companionship. Otherwise I am looking into a new option that may have popped up. We'll see what happens. I have one final trump card I can use that might buy me some time. I don't want to have to use it, but it will hopefully help both my mother and I.
Cons: Geek.Kon is, seemingly, fast approaching and I am so worried about money at this point. We have a room in another hotel for Thursday night and two rooms at the con hotel for the rest of the weekend. Things are a little messy right now with a 7th person wanting to join the group room. Then the 1st and 7th people in the room are also making travel a bit wonky too, so I'm worried shit is gonna hit the fan.
Gonna say right now that Daisho is definitely not happening unless by some miracle. The time just doesn't work for me this year and, since I'm worried about money for Geek, I definitely won't have it for Daisho.
Planning for Detour is already underway. If I have a home away from the family and Velocity has a car, we just might not get a hotel room and just commute the whole weekend, despite the 40 minute drive, still taking extra time to relax Thursday and Monday before and after the con. This leaves us with a LOT of extra money, with the ability to have free lodging and free/cheaper food at our disposal. Only thing that will be hard is Saturday, since I'm hoping to be in the competition, we'd not get back until late.
Cosplay: Putting Kotetsu, Blake and Houndour on my priority list; with Kevin, Yamato and Makoto making up the second tier; with Ukraine, Austria, Ai and Seishun in dead last. Kotetsu and Kevin are just final touches; Yamato, Makoto, Ai and Seishun have just a piece or two I need and the rest are largely unfinished. But Blake and Houndour NEED to be done by Detour (nixing the latter if we aren't ready for the competition) and Geek is a pretty aid back con for me, I could wear all old cosplays and be fine.
No updates on actual cosplay work since my last journal and it's driving me batty! Even if I could get a new watch for Kotetsu I'd be happy T_T
Art: I finished and posted my Detour video: [link]
Also made some progress on my Trial & Error cover. I hope to either have that finished and start writing that or have some writing for my other stories before the end of the month. Promising myself to have something new up before June because by then it will have been a whole year since I posted anything and I STILL have a backlog of photos. But I have OCD tendencies, so my brain won't let me post them in a row, I need to stagger them with non photos T_T
