Plus side, I will get girly clothes trying on and partying like pretty pretty princesses time at DragonCon. After the last year I'm starting to feel more comfortable with enjoying that, even if my pretty pretty princess still wears pants most of the time (I don't know if I'll ever be that comfortable in skirts), still strides instead of taking delicate steps, still is more Pawter Simms and Leia Organa and Mononoke than, I don't know. Any traditional Disney Princess. The hoop skirts and tiaras and fluffy gowns and glitter everywhere princess. Although I do still long for a tiara. Especially an evil queen one I can stab someone with.
Did I mention I have more in common with the raised by wolves princess? Because I do.
I think almost everything else is done except for the big three: sewing, writing, artwork. But most of those are coming along too, and if I don't have the artwork done in time to bring it to Alexander Siddig to sign at least enough of it should be done that he can see what it is. Which is the main point because yes, I'm showing off. Writing... I should get the writing done today if I can ever get my fucking head out of my body issues.
Panels. I need to catch up on shows, augh! And finish Supergirl. But mostly what I need to do as far as that goes is copy things over to flash drive so I can watch them. I'm not even going to take notes for the crossover panel (gasp! shock! I know, right?) mainly because at no point ever has anyone else shown up with a binder of notes, so as long as I'm refreshed on it I should be fine. And then Killjoys is up to date, and ... what the fuck even was the other one. Haven! I need to update that list of Troubles and print it.
Still not sure if I should namesquat on Imzy. On the other hand I'm still on the waitlist so eeehehhhhhhbglegh. Whatever.
... Or I'm not because I typed this and a few minutes later I checked my email and there was my Imzy thing. Well okay then. Namesquatting is a go. I guess. I haven't gotten any kind of a verification email yet, but whatever.
Most of my things have shipped for DragonCon but of course my petticoat hasn't and my other dress hasn't, which only makes me more convinced that I did the right thing to get that gorgeous butterfly dress. Although a bit of digging suggests Pinup Girl is in LA, which means it's not actually that late in the day for them and I shouldn't worry that they haven't shipped yet. So that's okay I guess. But I'm still going to be paranoid. And then I guess tonight I'm going to do even more packing because I have books to haul, a dress to pack, a hat, um. I don't know, I have to figure out how to get the books on the damn bus in a way that doesn't squish anything else and doesn't mean me packing a whole other suitcase. Which I might do anyway. That was dumb, getting 12 books not shipped to the hotel. Which okay, I suppose I could do now, but see also: paranoid. The tradeoff to paranoia is hauling a box of books on a bus.
And I need to figure out how to pack a tailoring kit and a medkit into everything, and and and. Maybe I SHOULD just ship the damn books to the hotel after all.ETAs:
Firstly, my Imzy verification email finally came in a few hours later, and then invites went out a few minutes after I sent them so, eh. I guess they fixed whatever that was that was going on. And YAY my Pinup Girl package shipped and I have been notified and that
is all good. So now I just have to deal with the damn books.
