Wednesday I spent all day sewing, attempting to get our costumes finished. Missouri has a lovely skirt, and the bulk for my Victorian walking dress is done, it's just waiting on buttons and trim--which my end up hand sewn on Friday night in the hotel room. (Is it scary or just sad that I'm contemplating bringing my sewing machine to a convention?)
This year, I will remember my camera. And the charger. And a spare battery. And the cord. No repeats of last year, when I got to take one picture and then my battery died on me. I want pictures, dammit!
I'll have more details on the costumes once we get back. I also finished a knitting project, but I can't show it off just yet because it's for CENSORED. I'm a sketch and a photo shoot away from a finished book proposal. If I'm very, very lucky I'll be able to send it off before we got to Symposium, but with everything on my plate right now I kind of doubt it.
Lastly: I declare the week of April 28 to be Steampunk Week. that's when you'll get the rundown on the costumes, the con, and probably some tea, so stick around!
