So if yesterday was doomsday, surely today was judgement day. Photoshoot and interview with the jury. "All that's left" is the grand cosplay gala, walk-on, vote and checking the results! Surely this will be a breeze? It's all down-hill from here, some might say. But really, for me it's kind of scary walking up on that stage as I've never actually done it before. The unknown is scary stuff. While I'm reasonably pleased with my costume, there are countless things that I could have improved.. Many things to make more smooth and practical. Could I have done it better? Probably. But is this enough? I hope so?
Not only this mentally tough situation but there are also repairs to be done as today was a long day. Sweat, friction & heat are bad for costumes. The gun lost it's trigger & another part which I don't know the name of, basically the guard around the trigger. There's also a dent on one of the pieces of armor on the boots. But that can be sorted out, somehow. I've got all night ^_^
What is my goal anyway? It wasn't winning, when I started anyway. Now it feels like a really amazing... possibility? Is that the right choice of words? Is it possible? Nah, probably not. I saw some indredible costumes. A really cute Vanille, heard rumours of an "Iron Man" cosplay. Some really good cosplays from Naruto too, which I usually frown at normally. And I've just seen the tip of the iceberg. Many amazing cosplays are sure to be seen at the convent and some tough competition is to be expected. All the same, I've recieved so many compliments about my costume that I'm flying high right now!
