Can't believe ACen is this week! Is everyone's prep all done?

I just need to pack and sort, but otherwise (for the first con in forever) I am done a whole four days early! Now I keep thinking I'm forgetting something though =p

Can't wait to see everyone!

(P.s. If you have anything with Gajeel from Fairy Tail, Vash from Trigun, Kili from The Hobbit or Captain Hook from OUAT let me know and I will be dropping by like a rabid fangirl!)

I will be attending ACen 2015 as an Artist.

This time so long as I don't forget the business cards (still kicking myself about that at my last con) I'm all set.
Hope you don't forget anything either!

I was going to say I have everything packed and ready to go and just a few last cosplay things to finish, then you said business cards...ugh. Totally forgot those at home, which is an hour and a half away from where I'm staying this week leading up to con. Damn. Oh well...

I just need to pack! I got a new, bigger suitcase too so hopefully that will make the job a bit easier.

As always, I managed to get my cosplays done just in time...Next year..I'm hoping to change that...lmao

I am so not ready. I have one last costume to finish. But I have a job interview today and ugh no timeeee. I also need to pack but I made a very detailed list so I won't forget anything. If anyone is interested, I used this as an idea starter and made an Excel spreadsheet. For those like me, that wait until the last minute. ;)

Oh no!
If you happen to have your business card file saved and are near a print store (office max, office depot or staples) you could put a sheet together and just get some printed out on copy paper. That's what I ended up doing, just so I could include them with everyone who made a purchase.

Business cards are now at the top of every packing list xD

I am never completely ready for ACen. Not that I'm a part of Artist Alley, but I think it still applies.

Argh, so not ready. At least I managed to order my balloon supplies ahead of time, but I'm still frantically working on a cosplay, and haven't done The Great Balloon Sort-n-Count yet to make sure I have enough in my AA bags to last through the weekend. Also need to pick up my business cards and make a new menu. And, y'know, pack everything, print directions, clean the car, clean the house, write instructions for the cat-sitter... waugh!

Ready accept that The weapon I planned on making, I have literally no time to make it because of school, work and an internship. And a weapon I had for a cosplay I'm bringing back for a 3rd year I have no time to repair it , since my younger sister beat it up pretty badly. So Tidus and Minako Arisato will be without a Sword and Naginata this year for me.
