Christmas time is here~posted Nov 28th 2011, 9:18AM
Music: Last Christmas- Wham!
Almost! got a couple of days left for November, and then it'll officially be Christmas time, in my book.
is it bad that I've got most of my gifts out of the way already? I would have them all, but I ran out of money.... I've only got, like, five people left to shop for.
The reason I got it out of the way early though is so I will know how much money I'll have leftover for a Homestuck Lock in next month. I'm pretty excited for it, and I've already been sewing up a storm in preparation of it [there's going to be a gift exchange.] I'm going to be semi-cosplaying Tavros for it. I've already made some robo-leg PJ pants [that may be touched up to broaden the details. You can barely tell there are panels unless you look real closely at it.] I'm also going to make a pupa pan-style shirt to wear with it [one less like Hussie's though, because I think that one looks like Kermit the frog], and maybe an elf hat. I may also attempt some horns too. I've already made other troll horns for other hats, but it'll be different with Tavros's horns.... [they'll be scaled down. I have no idea how they will stay up yet.]
My older sister wants me to make her a Santa hat for Terezi [her troll], but.... it's a bit of a dilemma. I told her I'd do it if she bought me a hat, but then she wanted me to make the hat too. Black with teal trim. She says she doesn't have the teal fabric, and that she would be fine with a grey trim. Now, I do have teal in my stash, but I don't want to tell her this because it ties in with the Christmas gift that I made her [and ones I made for others.], and I know she'll ask when I got it, and then she'll have suspicions for her gift, which I'm trying to avoid. I want to make the hat that she wants, but... I don't want to give anything away. Should I use it and lie? I don't think she'll believe me...
Ah ha ha, I know it's dumb, but I know I kinda get bummed when I know what my gifts are, and hate when other people find out.
I'll figure it out....
