Prepping for Uppcon 11

There's only one week left until Uppcon now. I'm a bit excited but mostly just stressed. There are so many things I want done before then. Several hats, hairclips and corsages need finishing and then I need to figure out a way to bring everything to Uppsala. Not to mention I still don't have anywhere to stay once I am there. Worst case scenario would be that I'd have to travel back and forth between Uppsala and Stockholm every day. It doesn't take more than an hour, mind, but it's still rather annoying.

On top of all that I feel really sick today so I haven't been able to get anything done. Bah. And it seems my new businesscards won't get here until the week after Uppcon. I don't want to seem whiny but this is just one of those days where everything seems to go all wrong. Ngh....

One fairly amusing thing though is that I have apparently been accepted as a model in Uppcon's fashionshow.

I applied months ago with an outfit I really liked but then got the reply that they "had so many Sweet Lolitas already" and that I needed to send more pictures of my hair and makeup etc. That just seemed like too much of a hassle, especially since they automatically seemed to put me in the same category as all the Sweet Lolitas even though my outfit was no where near Sweet. So I decided to just give up. I could look fabulous at the convention without actually walking in the fashionshow. However, just the other day I got an email saying that I had been chosen as a model. Wait what? .... *shrug* Apparently my outfit isn't as generic as they first thought. Or something. Oh well. Turns out I'll be walking in that fashionshow after all!

This is the outfit I'll be wearing. I thought I'd go all out Classic with a bit of a Mad Hatter twist and do some advertising for my hats while I'm at it.

Oh and I'm supposed to wear white lace socks instead of the brown ones :3
