Wanted: Clones

Wow.  So many projects going right now I don't even know where to start.  First of all, hi!  I'm still here.  :)  Plushie orders are horribly behind, and I do apologize for that.  I've had delays of every possible kind, mostly the exciting and unexpected kind.  :squee:  More on that later.  

For now, I'm helping out with my very bestest friend's wedding next month, and my sister-in-law's wedding (also next month.)  So that's been a priority lately.  I know some people say "I got married before Pinterest was invented, I want a do-over!"  Yeah, no.  I'm happy to have it all over and done with.  :P  

Mass Effect Marathon 3 is coming up this fall!  This will be g33kWatch's last Mass Effect marathon, so let's make it memorable.  This time around I'll be donating a plushie Harbinger to be auctioned, again one-of-a-kind and will not be made again.  All the proceeds will go to Child's Play Charity.  Keep it in mind and start saving!  For the children!

On a random note: Hubby and I decided that A.) we need to go to a con of some sort soon, even if I don't get an artist's table, and B.) there must be costumes.  Geekery is best if it is embraced fully.  So that's another project we've been toying with.  Thanks to :iconrexluna: for all of her sage advice.  I'm having an absurd amount of fun with it so far, I'll have to post pictures once I have some decent progress.  :D  Ain't no rest for the wicked...

That is all for now, I suppose.  Back to work!

I went to Comic Con this year, and if I go next year I HAVE to cosplay. Like...no questions asked. I'm already planning on renting out a garage at our apartment complex to be my workshop for some legit femShep armor! It's really busy and crazy...it's like nothing I've ever seen. But I LOVED it... (and I usually hate crowds!) There were so many cool people to see and meet that it made the pains of going to a huge con worth it. Hopefully I'll have something put together in time for Phoenix Comic Con in May, too. It's smaller but always fun.

I wish you the best in your endeavors the next few months! Take your time on the plushies, we know they'll be worth it. :hug:

Oh wow, glad you got to go! We just watched a video of the Firefly 10th Anniversary panel and were so wishing we could have been there. Hope you get that FemShep armor done up, I'd love to see that!

Planning stages are moving right along! Cost and being able to find tools for the workshop will be the most prohibitive thing, but I am determined!

Btw, whoever gets the Harbinger plushie has to promise to meet up with me to do space battle with the Normandy. Just sayin'. ;)

Hahaha, that would be an epic plushie battle indeed!

Wow! You sound very busy! I'm glad you are surviving, though (and having fun with a lot of it, it sounds like). Let me know about your cosplay experience. I've been wanting to get into that myself, but there usually aren't any good cons in my area, so that takes a lot of planning way ahead of time.

I've never done a proper cosplay. I was always the kid with the really elaborate Halloween costume that no one recognized, though, haha. I actually wanted to be a costume designer for a while, among many other things. I can live the dream for a day or two! ;) There are a couple of small cons around here now, thankfully. I'd love to do a big one like ComicCon, of course, but like you said, planning. It will still be fun. :)

Exciting and unexpected kind of delays you say? Sounds interesting... =P Good luck with the wedding stuff! A friend of mine is getting married on October - I never realised how much you actually have to plan! Crazy! And I'll be making my first wedding cake for that... scary...

So excited for the Harby plushie! Can't wait to see how cute you make him! =P

Cons are so much fun, you should definitely go! PAX will be my one this year =D

Ooh, wedding cakes. My mom used to do that (and the catering and the floral arrangements.) It's not bad until you make a huge tall cake and look over and see a kid wobbling the table it's sitting on, lol. That'll give you a heart attack.

I've found two local cons so far, not sure which one I'm going to make it to. Maybe both! Two small cons equals one bigger con, right? ;)

Yeah, I'm a little worried about it - no kids will be getting near it! =P I'm sure she won't mind if it's not as professional as most wedding cakes... it is going to have zombies on it, after all =P

I'd say so! =P Small cons are fun - you're more likely to get to see everything you want to and don't have to use your elbows so much! =P

Psht, your cakes look more professional than most professional cakes I've seen. :D And a zombie cake! Everyone will love it because it'll be so original!

Yeesh, I didn't think about that aspect of a larger con. I don't do crowds. Smaller cons it is! (And possibly one video game midnight release, if I get the costumes done in time.)
