As much as it saddens me to say it, I am holding off on my Maedhros cosplay until DragonCon next year. I have less than a month, and I have just found out that I am moving during that time (as opposed to after it, which I originally thought), so if I try to do it now I would be horribly rushed and not be able to do it justice at all. I think I am going to work on it periodically throughout the year when I have time/money, so I can really put in the time to make it as good as it can be (plus, that gives me time to grow six more inches of red hair ).
So, cosplay lineup for DragonCon at the moment will definitely include Brady, Galadriel, and Loki, and the fourth day I guess will be a wild-card (maybe Tales of Asgard? though judging from last year, I was too tired to wear a costume Monday anyways... XD).
That said, the two cosplays I definitely want to finish sometime this year/con-season are Legault from Fire Emblem 7 and Blind Mag from Repo: The Genetic Opera. I already have the beginnings of both of those, so if one seems do-able before DC, then I'll have a go at it, but after 3 weeks of marathon sewing with Brady, I really want some time to do other things, and will need some time to move.
So anyways. XP Just in case anyone cares. I really am bummed about Maedhros, and I still have every intention of doing him next year, but trying to finish him for this DC would be unrealistic if not insane.
Also, my definite cons for the rest of the year are DragonCon and Anime Weekend Atlanta, but I am hoping to find more. Drop me a line if you're going to be at either of those!
