The Rush To Get Things Done - Pre-Convention Panic

January 9, 2007 1:52pm CST
The big convention I attend every year is only three months away. Already I'm panicking. Our cosplay group has gone from five to two, we aren't doing any of the original costumes we planned on, and I've got to get everything done and bought and made at least a week before the convention. At least Ebay is a great place to get good quality wigs for cheap! Anyone else suffer from pre-convention panic?

I've never been to-much of a convention going person so I don't suffer from pre-convention panic. I guess I might have attend just a handful of conventions.

I've bought medium length wigs on Ebay for Five dollars US currency, and one four foot long high quality wig for only twenty dollars. Which is a pretty good deal, considering the length and how well made it is. Good luck with your cosplay group! It can be hard getting everybody organized.

What kind of convention is this. Usually I just pack normal clothing for one and don't have to worry about costumes. Please enlighten us.

I am totally stressing, I haven't even started to make a costume yet and I doubt I'll make one in time, I'm gonna have to put a lot of time into it. My older sister is in the same boat too, that's how you know were relatives, we both procrastinate a lot .:D

Oh man, I wish you luck! I've got my costumes almost all done - I need to make a tie for one and a pair of boots for the other, but I've got two months.

It's a very stressful time! I'm currently twitching because I'm worried the wigs won't get here in time! I ordered them straight from China.

I do cram before the day of the convention. Suppose, I plan for what I am going to cosplay ahead of time but then those plans sometimes never happen. I make my last minute change. But there are instances that I make myself ready for any upcoming conventions. And whenever I have no choice, I just re-use my costume.
