Not much progress on the Summer Bustle to report. Ruffles #2 & #3 have been prepped and are ready to be attached. I spent a lot of time yesterday on an idea that didn't work. Oh well, these things happen.
In happy news I bought my plane ticket for CosCol - yay! I had a really awful nightmare about it last night (see jenthompson you aren't the only one!) so when I found a good, if not great, price this morning I just grabbed it. I got my preferred arrival and departure times, one layover per leg, it's not United and I get to fly out of Richmond, which is awesome. It's just a relief to know it's taken care of and I won't have another 12 hour layover, 3 stop red-eye like last time. 'Cause I don't know that I'd survive that again. Whew!
I sent off my CosCol class registration last week. I requested the fabric tour, the Sweet Bag Stitches class and something else. (Not the Calash, yeah decided it was too fugly a thing to spend 3 precious CosCol hours on) Obviously the limited classes did not rock my world when I can't even remember my second choice. I was trying to decide between a couple (based on cost, length and what classes they conflicted) and can't remember which one I eventually decided on. Sad, isn't it?
This year it's really the unlimiteds that have me jumping up and down with excitement and squeeing like a fan girl. Which is nice. If I don't get into my limiteds I won't be utterly crushed (as in years past) and if I do then cool, they are something to look forward to. It's a nice way to go through the process... I like it.
It's hard for CosCon to seem real when most of my brain is working on CosCol planning. I think this is the last Con I'll do for a while, it's just an awkward time of year both in my costuming life and real life. The sense of urgency to get some costumes done NOW is helpful in getting my CosCol wardrobe done in time but other than that it's making my life (and bank account) rather complicated. Still it should be fun and I am looking forward to it. Hanging out and geeking out with larger numbers of costuming peeps is always a wonderful thing!
