What's left?
« on: May 25, 2011, 12:40:25 PM »

So we're a day or two away from Fanime... What do you have left to do?

I got all my printing done, one final, and some of my packing.

I still need to...
Do my nails.
Finish packing.
Dye my hair.
Return some things that are due to be returned while I'm at the con.
Pay bills.
Call DMV.
Buy beverages.
Drop off my dog's overnight gear to my friend.
One more final in like, 15 minutes (eee!)

I'm feeling pretty much ready, despite all of that though. I managed to get my car vacuumed and de-slobbered. I have my laundry done. I know what I'm bringing. My hair got cut.

How are you all doing with the 'to do' lists?

For now I'm just trying to coordinate getting my swap meet stuff to the convention center, finding parking for the person helping me, picking up my staff badge and staying in the swap meet line at the same time. I don't want to imagine how much more stressful this would be if I didn't live 30 minutes from San Jose.

Other than that, I still need to pack clothes, makeup, my water bottle and some snacks, but I'll worry about those on Friday after swapmeet. *phew*

My to do list:
1)Eat something
2)Try to beat Dead Rising 2 before i go(I hate the "special"zombies sooo much=_=)
3)Get this random guy out of my house (Mission complete)
4)Try to recover faster from a shoulder injury(Not possible but I refuse to let it stop me from having fun)
5)Eat something again(fast metabolism)
6)I forgot to pack :-[ SO I still need to do that
7)Meet up with my friend to get fitted for my cosplay
8)Finish doing various things to get ready
9)Head out to fanime!
My daily mantra is L.I.F.E.= Losing.Is.Failing.Excellently.
So it's not that I didn't win...I just choose not to succeed.
Cosplays I've done:
Everyday of my life-Me
Fanime 08'-Dosu Kinuta
Fanime 11'-Kuro Shinobi no Mono
Sacanime 11'-(Same)+Kuroneko

Charge my Canon Rebel XSi's battery (100% charge gives me roughly 450 images before dying)
Charge my HTC Freestyle cellphone (gets 15 hours to 18 hours of life on a charge, depending on how often I use it)
Write a blog on AnimeVice about what they can expect when I return (feature on Cosplaying, feature on FanimeCon itself, and images from DeviantArt profile)
Sign my AMTRAK tickets to validate them for use
Give my cellphone # to several cosplayers who wish to have their photos taken and uploaded to DeviantArt
Make contact with several people who wish to participate in my interview for my feature on Cosplaying
Go to bed
Wake up at 2:45 AM
Be leaving by 3:10 AM
Get on Coast Starlight from Chico AMTRAK/Union Pacific Station
and most importantly, have fun for 4 days at FanimeCon  :D
Currently doing massive wiki edits on AnimeVice. Will be doing cosplay photos at FanimeCon for AnimeVice's site. T-minus 3 days to FanimeCon!
