    Default how do you prep for events?

    so its the week before the event. what are you usually up to in terms of prepartions, last minute or otherwise?

    usually i try to get my eyebrows shaped about a day or two before the event, and try to get a dental appointment for some cleaning [thank god the BIG events are nicely roughly about 6 months apart lol] hmm will also be taking extra care of complexion making sure that no pimples are gonna come out, try to get more sleep and all dat.

    what do you guys do?

    hahaah definitely try to make sure that the wig is in shape, does it look good when you wear it or does it make you look like the character you are cosplaying itself~

    hmm also probably get make-up that is needed for the character?

    Well, on days before the event i will try to pack everything into the bag beforehand, cause normally when you do stuff at the last minute you would probably forget to bring this and that to the event and that could be very troublesome.

    and ya i definitely think i should get more sleep hwhaa, i cant really cover my eye bags with the make-up =/

    Hmm...For me, I would have dress rehearsal with my friends because its fun to see each other in costumes and to prepare us for the big day, pack my stuffs a day before the event itself and of course to take care of my face so I dont have any pimples. Oh and get more sleep too. My friend told me I have eye-bags

    I have like a few pimples on the face right now. Damn! Be gone pimples!

    i'd try to get everything ready by 1 week before the event~

    but it's so scary ~"~ our costumes didn't arrive until 3 days before eoy and the custom crest we made dind't arrive until the same day due to some complications @,@

    by the time it' the day before the event i'd be panicking because everyone didn't make plans on where to meet etc etc

    then i'd be too excited to sleep and maybe wake up late XD

    (so i think 1 week before the event i need to get 5 alarm clocks =,=")

    Hope is like a treasure
    which you cannot carry alone.
    Will you carry it with me?
