It's been a month since Con season came to a close. You therefore should have more creative free time on your hands, (though, admittedly October is always very busy with non-creative things) and you have accomplished one thing thus far. Yes, the little box pleated skirt you have put aside for over a year was finished, but really, that was just the hemming needing done.
Now then. Perhaps, you could take a little time to get some other things done? Some suggestions are: The bodice for the Ouat red riding hood costume you never finished? That Tardis box pleated skirt you said you'd make? How about Costume Con 35? I do distinctly recall that since you had a second chance, you'd make more than one costume this time around. You should consider getting on that too, since you have what, a year and half left? That's not that much time, you know.
Okay, how about this? You finish one project before Christmas and I'll give you a warm sense of accomplishment. How does that sound?
