Scrape back and repair time. Do any other crafters get the feeling a project is actually fighting them or it it just deadline paranoia.
----edit---
And five minutes later I knocked over the jar of thinners right next to the headpiece I just painted.

Starting to wonder if binge watching Dexter has been a good idea.

Well the Sams are packed and the half made cloaks are ready for finishing. [livejournal.com profile] murphys_lawyer has taken pictures which will be posted on Sunday. I'll take some of them once they've had the last of the sewing and fitting done for later.
Going for my train soon as I'm heading down a day early so I can pop in to the Science Museum with [livejournal.com profile] aunty_marion on Friday before heading conwards.

Cosmonauts: Birth of the Space Age

The chance to see the actual capsule that Valentina Tereshkova flew in is just too good to miss.

Sams production wibble has been resolved by the heroic volunteering of [livejournal.com profile] grey_lady to do the bits I'm not very good at. Yay!

Really having to force myself to finish the Sams right now. I think it's because most of what's left to do is sewing.

Finally got the pics of the finished Sams off my phone (Samsungs official backup software kept falling over).

Could someone please make me a sam sized grey wig with two pigtail braids, just down past the shoulders?

Me and my big ideas. My kitchen table looks like a flock of flourescent parrots just exploded over it.

Struggled a bit to get ideas going for this years artwork but I think I've got it at last. I just need to get to the hobby shop for beads, feathers, cardboard tubes and maybe some glove leather if it's cheap enough.

Off to the con in an hour with the SAMs in the case padded with enough pocket packs of balm tissues to stock a shop. I think my con is going to be spent in a corner with my ebook trying not to sneeze on too many people.

Why I always go down with a cold end of January I don't know but if I ever catch up with the imp of the perverse responsible... Well lets just say I've read all the Dexter novels.

You know your barbarian is silly enough when he starts to look like a crossover between a 70's Frazetta painting and the bondage section of a gay mag. Now to decide where on the scale from usable to Final Fantasy the sword goes...

My part of the Sams is finished. The rest is up to Melusine and Miki with some small assemblage to be done at the con. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to draw fishnets on a mannikin!

To all of you who have jumped in to help with the SAMs over on [livejournal.com profile] oreouks LJ,  a heartfelt thanks. I can now concentrate on finishing the papercraft side of things without worrying too much about letting people down. This is one of those times I wish I wasn't the sort of person who produces their best work while staring down the barrel of a deadline but I just seem to be wired that way I guess.

You all deserve a round on me. See you all in a couple of days.

I'm getting over this damn cold but I'm still having trouble concentrating for more than half an hour at a time. Is there anyone out there willing and able to make four pairs of blue knickerbockers as I'm not sure I'm going to have time to do a decent job myself? A link to the reference picture I'm using for the SAMs will be available for the volunteer.

Less than a week to the con with four pairs of shoes and four hats to craft plus four pairs of trousers to sew for the SAMs and I'm down with a stinker of a head cold. Bugger.
