I'm flying to LA on friday morning (Hopefully between 5-8 am) and coming back on monday after 4pm; this way I can get at least two full days at the convention and two half days (Work and school and money prevent me from staying longer). Because I cant spent the whole day there on fri and mon I dont want to spend all day getting into costume. I want to make a simple one for fri and mon and wear a more tedious costume on sat and sun. Is there anyone who is good at costuming and has any free time (Also a sewing machine would help, as I dont have one)? Normally my friends would help me but they are also going and making new costumes. I think the Tidewater Alliance sometimes has costume shops, which I will try to attend, but usually school and work get in the way of the meetings.
