A Sad, Sad Day

Well normally I would post progress of my priestess costume, except....I am scrapping the costume.  No not because of skill but because I will not be attending Blizzcon 2011.  I was talking to my husband earlier this week after the date had been announced, and he said it can't be in the plan book for this year.  Money being too tight due to our recent move will not allow us to go all the way to California for the convention.  "Well why not continue your priestess costume? No reason to scrap it? You can always go to a closer convention!" well the thing about all that is I am on a very strict plan, because next year will be my last year to cosplay...I have other responsibilities and will be far enough in school to be pursuing an internship.  Here and now in America it's becoming increasingly difficult to find a job.  You have to have "experience" in the field for them to hire you.  I always knew what I wanted my last costume to be so I will start that instead.  It sucks because I have already put so much time and effort into this costume I hate to shove it into the closet...but there's nothing else I can do.  I suppose it's a blessing in disguise, now I can put lots of love into my big finale! I'm sure I'll pick it up again later in life when things look a little more up.  But one thing is for sure, cosplay is not for the poor!
