Twenty-four days. Twenty-three for those of you in the Eastern Hemisphere.
That is currently the amount of time remaining until the anime convention known as Kamikazecon, which is local to Solvash, mukomo, and myself. While the convention may not explain mukomo's slight in-activeness (since he is not, to my knowledge, planning to go to convention) this is putting pressure on both Solvash and myself.
I am currently working on a cosplay for the main antagonist of Final Fantasy IX, Zidane Tribal (alternately acting as a costume for Daniel Ijokish/Sedon Trebal). This is putting a certain amount of pressure on myself since the cosplay is still incomplete and the hardest parts of the costume's creation are still ahead.
This means that it is very
likely that I will become increasingly inactive as the time of Kamikazecon draws steadily nearer, so please bear with me if I begin to appear only very briefly, fazing in and out every so often only to check on things. Furthermore, on the weekend of Friday the 19th
of March, I am likely to be totally inactive all three days since those are the days that Kamikazecon will be running. This is without mentioning some of my own personal stress, but I will do my best to make sure that any depressed feelings I have don't get in the way of my moderating and role-playing.
As for Solvash, he is currently working on the creation of numerous swords (including the Mage Mashers for myself since they would need to be completed by Kamikazecon) and quite possibly the improvement of his own cosplay (Godot from Phoenix Right).
Not to mention that other friends of his commission him to make swords for them as well. As such, he may also be quite inactive as well.
I figured it would be best to forewarn you all before we actually do become inactive so that you don't wonder what's happened to us.
When I have the entire cosplay complete, I'll get some pictures of Daniel (Sedon Trebal) Ijokish to add to our collections on our deviantART group. Don't forget to check it out if you haven't already!
