Time to start planning for DragonCon

As we all know, Dragon*Con is right around the corner! (EEEK!)  Here are some of my plans!

The Dalek Costume
Sure, it's only June, but I have a lot of work to do on the Dalek costume.

Last year's costume:

Dalek Costume Changes:

  • Reattach / Re-secure bumpers that have popped off when I was moving to the new apartment
  • Turn bottom half into a skirt
  • Purchase a corset top in either black, blue, or both
  • Buy a pair of Heelys (maybe)
  • Lose weight (the most important part, lol)

The Kaylee Costume
My other costume, for days I feel like being a bit more relaxed, is Kaylee from Firefly.  I threw together a costume for an event a couple weeks ago, and while it's ok, I'd like to re-do it for D*con.  Here's a pic:

Changes for the Kaylee costume:
  • Buy a new jumper - in green or brown.
  • Use jumper to work on cars :D
  • Remove patches from current jumper, add to new one
  • Get a better matching shirt, preferably one a bit more breathable (this one was sweltering, and it's not gonna be much cooler out by September in Georgia).

A few other details.
Depending on savings, I will be staying with my buddy Jeffrey in Atlanta this year.  He only lives a couple blocks from the con, and this is the view from his apartment:
So yeah, it's win-win.  There is still a possibility I'll be staying with a couple friends in the Marriott, but we'll see.  It really all depends on everyone's cash flow, and I still haven't bought my actual tickets for the con.
