Only two days left until our fourth Ohayocon, and I’m as underwhelmed about it as I was about Christmas.
I have two unfinished Kujian helmets sitting upstairs: one papier-mache, one cardboard and fiberfill. The papier-mache helmet I only started on Monday, and I knew when I got one layer down that there was no way I’d get it done by the weekend. Still, tonight I decided to prime it for painting, just to see… and, really, there’s no way it’ll be ready for the con.
The cardboard one is a retooling of the original helmet I made for Youmacon. It was too tall, and the plexiglas outer brim was too brittle to wrap around the helmet, and it cracked in three places. So, I’ve been trying to improve upon it this evening, to no avail. I’m just feeling… disinterested.
I really enjoyed cosplaying at Youmacon, so I’m not sure why I’m so blase about it this time around. Maybe it’s because I can see how uber-awesome my papier-mache helmet will be when it’s done, and I hate having to retool a funky fiberfill chop job instead.
Ah, well. I should get back to that, I suppose. *sigh*
