Good news and bad news regarding my cosplay:
The good news is that the main armor is finally finished. I didn't start real work on it until the tail end of last summer, and I actually found the process itself to be quite relaxing. There's something about building a cosplay that makes me feel truly peaceful, and it's definitely helped me keep my head during the more tumultuous time of the past year.
The bad news is that my SSG prop still hasn't been shipped, and it's been a couple of months already since I paid for it. I know that the cosplayer I bought it from is legit, because he made the helmet I now have, and it's pretty well done. A couple of weeks ago, I asked him about it, and he told me that he already had it shipped, but there were some personal issues that he had to deal with. I understand that we're all human. My next planned con appearance is not until next month, but like I said, I've waited on this prop for a few months now, and I can't reach out to him.
In fact, I'm actually concerned for him, because he seems to have withdrawn from all social media altogther, and I can't even reach out to him to ask if he's ok. I mean, he's already been such an awesome friend.
Shit sucks, man.

I'm aware of that, and I'll bring this to light with him. I made the transaction via PayPal.
That beins said, I'm actually very worried about him. It seems that he's withdrawn from all social media altogether, and last I heard from him, he had been dealing with a death in the family. I'm pretty damn skippy that he's going through a legendarily rough patch.
I can certainly relate to that, because I've had my own fair share of rough patches.
I want to let him know that people care about him, that he doesn't have to go through whatever is happening to him alone. I want to promise him that much.
