CC-32 Mid-Week Update – 2

Costume Con 32 Costume Con 32 starts in three weeks. In order to get everything done that I want to, I’ve made a strict schedule. I’ll be doing Monday, Thursday updates to look at where I’m at, and what else needs to get done.


70% Complete, but 100% Clean Workspace!

Workshop part 1

Dat neatness.

Progress is still a Nope. On Monday I heard my landlord was going to come in and take photos of my apartment since I’m trying to move in June. I spent the next two days cleaning which, while not progress on Weiss, is still productive.

Workshop part 2

Bonus portrait of my Great(-great?)-Grandmother

I’m aiming to find the zipper and finish putting the dress back together tonight. If not, this will get pushed back after the weekend since I’ll be attending Ad Astra. 

Rooming arrangements fell through at the last minute, and so I will be at home, sewing and grumbly-drunk for most of this weekend. (Don’t worry mom, not actually [mostly] drunk ).  Helper cat has been shipped out to her grandparents so I should be able to make some serious headway this weekend.
