Seems I'm just gonna use this whenever it strikes me fancy ;3
So, I'm attempting to go to GenCon by myself. Firstly, EEP! It's less than a month away now, and I'm really going to have to stretch my monies. I have 3 paychecks left til the con, and I have to take into account that I'll be paying 300-400 *maybe* for car repairs, taken from this coming paycheck? That, plus the car payment itself and cell phone bill is due first of the month, leaving me even less...>_<...UGH. Let's just skip all that and get to the con details ^_^
So, I want to try to get a hotel that's close, because I don't want to walk really far by myself and at night in downtown Indy =/
I need to ask some other peeps where they're lodging. So, that's the first thing I need to do. Actually...it can probably be done last minute, but I just want to get it done T_T
Secondly, COSPLAY!!! I wanna do some, even if it's not really related to what this con's about. My ideas are mostly animu, and while I don't really want to repeat my BLEACH OC, if I will, I WILL!
So far, I have an OC Final Fantasy 7 Turk as one possibility. If I can find most of the clothes @Goodwill, the shoes will probably be the most expensive part of this cosplay. And that's much cheaper than laying down like $140 for a costume (before shipping) and it needing to get here within 3 weeks HAHA!!
You know what? Screw it, I'm gonna bring the BLEACH OC cosplay. It's totally free! And it makes two costumes. I don't really wanna cosplay every day, but I just see this as a practice run for when I really lay down the $$$ for a kick-ass cosplay for next year's OTAKON, which I am tootally going to, no matter WHAT!!
Other than those two, I have no idea what else I could do**. Really, I think it's more than enough. The other two days I'll just wear my animu shirts and "skinny" jeans/khaki pants.
**OK, not true, There's others, but it costs more than I can do just for a gaming convention. And those are: Princess Ayeka Masaki Jurai from Tenchi Muyo!, Sailor Neptune from PSSM, and Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood. (My fave by FAR. I'm gonna go all out with that one. And try to get the blue dress. White's okay, but blue is lurve. <3)
Tis all for now. Possible updates later.
