Anime Expo doom approaches…

DOOM.  Yeah that’s what Anime Expo means to most procrastinating cosplayers.  But this is the first year of AX that I haven’t procrastinated.  I started about 2 months ago working solid every single day for about 3/4 hours a day on costumes and so far I’ve been able to fully complete 4 for Anime Expo (3 for me 1 for my sister…).  Currently finishing up the 5th (for my sister).  It’s been pretty stressful but one thing I can say that I am coming out of this with… is time management.  I’ve never been so dedicated and good with my time before.  I get up at 5 AM, head over to the hospital… work for 8 hours, head to the gym for 2 hours… then go home and sew until 9 PM…shower, then sleep at 10 PM.  rinse and repeat.  I’ve forced myself onto a rigorous schedule so I’ll be glad when AX (and then Comic Con) will be over with and all I have to worry about is work and then come fall… school!!!  Finally starting… it’s taken me 4 years to figure out what it is I want to do with my life and I think I’m finally on the right path.

  8. That’s dedication! you said you wanted to a dentist right? (or did I make that up in my head ><) Good luck with it anyway and I’m sure your costumes will look amazing, as per usual ^^ As long as you’re enjoying yourself, that’s all that matters ^__^

  9. that’s good that you’re getting everything done on time, unlike me. XP well, for me, everything was going well at first and now it’s all going downhill. =_= but i think i can probably finish for AX without doing any all nighters.

  10. you can do it, Adella. I have faith in you! :D
    and what did we decide to be when we grow up now, hmm? wink

  11. How can you stand doing the same thing every day,Adella?If I did the same thing every day,it would eventaully drive me crazy!Why not do things like go to the gym a couple of days weekly,and do other things like go see movies or go to the park on other days?Try going to bed at different times every day.Watch television or go to plays or concerts.Take a break from sewing and the gym.Take it from me-if you do the same exact thing every day,pretty soon you’ll get sick and tired of it and not want to do it anymore.Forcing yourself into a rigorous schedule isn’t really healthy for your body-you do need relaxation time to give your body a break from all that rigorous activity.

  16. I really enjoyed your Lacus Clyne costume, it was really well made and designed.  I look forward to your next creation.  Some images I took of your costume could be found here:  http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?member=35318&cat=500

  17. Dear Lady Adella

    I can tell from the pics from the website you had a blast at AX. I liked never thought you would cosplay Riku from FFXI2 and bell from Beauty and The Beast. You looked great in booth by the way. I would also like to add that during Anime Expo I was vacationing at Ireland with my family, I got to drank Pints of guinness at pubs and Kiss the Blarney stone. I wish you luck at school and other stuff:)

    Keep up the good work

    Posted by noxy_schala  on  07/08  at  02:10 PM
  24. Saddlly I never ran into you at the AX, though I was hoping to! You got me into wanting to cosplay hehe.

    Posted by soulysephiroth  on  07/09  at  02:06 PM
  25. Aww man! You are very dedicated, and hard working! Good for you! You should be very proud of yourself! I hope that AX was a blast! My friend went, but I couldn’t make it….*sniff*

    I WILL make it to Kumoricon though. Hope you can make it to that too!

    Congrats on the NOT PROCRASTINATING smile

    I also hope you enjoy school in the fall! It is wonderful when you get that felling of, “My life is going in the right direction now!” And knowing what you want. Yay!
