The biggest ray of hope for our post Anime Expo work schedule is that one of the four books that are due all around the same weekend was the easiest title we have to translate. But then! our schedule got shuffled around a little bit and now it's been traded out for something less easy to translate. We're still optimistic that we can do it; it just means we have to focus more time on work before Anime Expo, too. I think we might also have to re-prioritize everything, since originally the plan was to do the two super hard titles, then the super easy title even though it's due before the second super hard title, because since the only difference in deadlines is a weekend, it would give us a surer chance of getting the two hard ones in by deadline, and if the easy one was late, it wouldn't be late by much. Now everything is up in the air.
In other news, we finally got around to trying on a Hiyori skirt yesterday...and it's too short. But we went online and ordered some flesh-colored tights and they've already shipped! We don't know if they'll be thick enough, but here's hoping. And since it came up, the reason cosplaying characters that show a lot of leg is tricky for us is that as part of our religion we wear special undergarments that we don't want to go flashing to everybody. And it's something I don't feel confident in my ability to explain, but fortunately, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made a nice video that explains it pretty well. So if you want to know more about it, go watch it
! (The video is four minutes and fifteen seconds long.) So there's a little bit of our religion for today.
Today I'm thankful for finishing our first draft of Say I Love You (which is due before the big clump of four), not having to work overtime today (I mean, I guess we could, but our higher priority right now is costumes), having time to work on costumes (we both woke up this morning thinking, "There's no time! Aaaaaahhh!!"), the lovely lavender color of our Hiyori skirts, and the tights we ordered already having shipped. And we have plans to go to Target for more layers in case they end up not being thick enough.
