But Halloween was an arbitrary deadline this year, so it's okay. A bit of a bummer, but I'll still get it done and it'll be nice (I think).
The good news is that I was able to help kit_ping finish up her costume. (And she did need one for school... A gradeschool teacher with no costume would be unacceptable to the students!) Honestly, she did the work on this one, I just offered advice and instruction. It came out pretty cool lookin', I must say.
So now I'm trying to chill at work. I wore some of my simple medieval garb and that's more than enough costume for my coworkers; they kept asking why I didn't enter the costume contest! It's nice to be reminded of what high standards the fursuit community sets. :)
A bit of Halloween fun and then... NaNoWriMo begins. A whole new type of stress!
