No new costume for Penguicon

There's no way I'll finish the costume I'd planned to wear at the Penguicon Masquerade this year in time to head for the airport tomorrow morning. Even if I stayed up all night working on it, there are processes involved that simply will not complete in time. Between a last-minute trip to Austin, with preparation and such, and a paying project that turned out to be far more cantankerous than I ever bargained for, I just didn't have enough time to work on the stuff.

I've got everything neatly put away, and will work on it in my free time over the next few months...and will have the luxury of being able to get everything exactly the way I want it in plenty of time for Linucon at the end of September. I've got everything I need but time; two more full days to work on it, and I'd be golden.

I'm extremely disappointed by this. I was really looking forward to doing it. It just didn't work out.
