I've been sewing lately, getting ready for Aselia Con
. I've got 3 costumes to make (Lloyd Irving and Leia Rolando for me, Alvin for insidious
). I'm running a panel on Exspheres and Key Crests as Lloyd, and I'm volunteering. I am trying to draw enough stuff to have an art table.
Am I overexerting myself?
But I'm so excited. ;_____;
I watched Julie play all the way through Xillia on Jude's side. When I'm done with everything, I'll play Milla's side. I have spoiled myself mostly though, because I kinda had an emotional freak out about the things I didn't know and needed to for RP. It was a little bit dumb of me. But I hope I'll still enjoy my playthrough.
Last night I played more Vesperia and got all the way to the scene with Belius and Leviathan's Claw. (Ugh and I wanted to cry, that scene and my feels.... ;_;) Probably should have worked more on Alvin's shirt, but I can do that tonight. It should be done, save the trim on the collar. I'll work all weekend to try and get the rest of his accessories and vest done. Lloyd's gloves need to be finished for me to be satisfied, too.
That gives me like 6 weeks to make his coat, Lloyd's shirt, and Leia's dress. I can do this. I will not panic. I swear sometimes the overarching scope of a project can sometimes send me into an everlasting state of anxiety, but I seem to be doing really well with my sewing again and... not to jinx myself, I think if I just keep at this pace it'll be fine. Dad is having my sewing machine repaired, and I'm borrowing a working one right now besides.
I started cooking bento again. Well, more like last night I finally used the butternut squash I bought back in December. Damn, whatever the local farms are doing to grow produce, that stuff lasts... I know it's a winter squash and it should anyway, but it was still super hard to cut up. I put it in my slow-cooker and so that along with leftovers is my lunch for today.( Bento! )
I hope if I just use the slow cooker a lot I can eat healthy and keep up my strength. I need to stop eating out, to save time and money for these cosplays (and my hotel room e_e). I also had gained back half of what I lost over Christmas break, and managed to get down to 209 again. If I can be 199 by the middle of March, I'll be happy no matter how I look in my Leia cosplay.
Ugh I need to eat now. I'll post more updates later. I'm starving and my head hurts. T_T
