Video Games Live is coming up and we're attending. It's a concert where video game music is played by a live symphony orchestra. It's gonna rock. There are going to be other activites such as a Guitar Hero tournament, and of course, a costume contest.

I don't know if I'll enter the costume contest... I don't costume for contests or masquerades or anything like that. I just like doing it. I figure dressing up would be fun either way. I don't really have a video game costume though. I know, blasphemy, and yet again I reiterate that I have a very long list of costumes I want to do which includes many, many video game characters. I suppose Psylocke sort of counts because she's been in a bunch of the X-Men video games and Marvel vs Capcom. And technically I've got this Resident Evil UBCS outfit but that's an interpretive thing from the movies really. I want something new.

So now I'm scrambling. I actually thought, "HEY! I was planning to do Xianghua anyways, perfect!" Not so perfect. I only have three weeks and there is no way I'm making Xianghua in three weeks.

You know how I said I have to do three costumes before the end of the year; Mulan, Xianghua, and Tinkerballa. I also have a "secret" list of other costumes that I want done before the end of the year but I don't announce it because if I don't announce it, it's not a big deal if I don't get them done. XD Well, Chun Li and Midori (Guitar Hero) are on that list so I figure I should be able to get one of them done within three weeks. We shall see. If not, I'll be attending as normal me. :D

I already got a bunch of fabric and patterns for Midori so that's cool.

Chun Li shouldn't be too complicated - I just need to modify a cheongsam pattern... but I can't find a freakng cheongsam pattern! A majority of the American patterns have buttons on the wrong side, WTF, though I suppose I could just flip the pattern... And then I figured out that most people just make the basic dress but then it doesn't function like a normal cheongsam where there's a flap and it buttons down the chest. O_O They just have a zipper in the back.

I wonder if I'm making things too complicated by wanting the outfit to actually function how it's supposed to rather than taking a shortcut and putting the zipper in the back. Oh! And then I've found some vintage patterns but since people were smaller back then, I can't find my size. >_<

There actually is a free online pattern... but I'm too lazy to print and measure it our properly to fit me. XD

There are a bunch of ways I can work around this... but I'm feeling overall lazy about it right now. XD

I'm terrible.
