Lots of cosplay done yesterday, so I'm nearly done. Sorted out Jayce's boots, which involved repeated finger burning from the glue gun, and did his wig. I can't find my hairspray, so it's unstyled, but there shouldn't be too much to do, just give it a bit more shape. Current to do list is:

Put elastic in Jayce's waistband (quite important that!) - not sure I have any elastic.
Put elastic under boot covers - see above.
Stick on 3 red bits
Put elastic on two pairs of boot covers
Make belt for Jayce
Style wig.

I can get that all done easily today (and tomorrow for the bits I need to pick up), meaning I may get to finish the other two I was planning, as most of the sewing is done. I was going to put up progress pictures, but as it's so close, you can just wait until Minami.

One dilemma I have is I don't know when to wear Sora. It will either be Friday afternoon, or Saturday morning / lunchtime. Now, I'd really like to get as many people as possible to see it. Vain, I know, but I am really proud of the costume. Pros and cons below.

Friday: Timing awkward as it needs to be late enought that people have arrived, but before the party starts. Would involve either changing from one cosplay to Sora, or not putting on She-ra until after I'm done with Sora.

Saturday morning: Not many people are up and if they are they are in the dealers queue. Does mean I can wear Sora and then get changed into the day's cosplay.

Saturday afternoon: Will mean getting changed from one cosplay to another (though possibly convient as I'd have to get changed for the masuerade anyway). Might interfer with something that I want to go to. More people likely to be around.

Opinions greatly appriciated.

I would wear it saturday all the way up to changing for the masquerade. Unless there's something that impedes that?

It's too hot for me to keep on confortably for more than about half an hour, though I could see how long I can manage in March rather than August.

Nothing wrong with wanting to show such a cute costume off.

I guess, judging by your pondering that Sunday would be out of the question? (obviously before returning home >_< might be a tad awkward to travel in!)

Otherwise, I'd suggest all Saturday - I agree, it might be a bit much to wear all day - before changing into your masquerade costume - but it does mean that there's a higher chance of more people seeing it.

Dress as Sora cosplaying as She-ra all Friday evening. As I recall, She-ra's outfit was minimal, so that sould help keep you cool.
