I've had... god only knows how many messages now asking when I'm selling my Axel wig, coat, and chakrams.
I'll sell them when I'm ready.
Please don't send me messages as if you're doing me a favour, offering me a set price up front, or any other messages. I've already said they'll be going up on eBay when I am able to arrange it. We'll be posting on dA and on YouTube when the auctions go up. Stop trying to loot the body while it's still warm, damnit!
As for why it's taking a while, there are numerous reasons. For one, I need to fix up the wig and clean the inner of it, dry-clean the coat, re-touch the chakrams, find suitable packaging/shipping methods for all of them, get the time to take photos and put up the eBay auction at a time where I know that, at the end of the auction, I'll have time to get to the post office to mail them...
All that, plus I'm in no hurry to do it. I'll get it done when I get it done.
It's in less than two weeks!!
They also now offer Day Passes, for those who can only make a single day of the convention. They cost £20 each, and are first-come-first-served. You can download the form here: [link] and follow the instructions provided.
The weekend just past, Jenn and I actually managed to be quite productive! We finally found the time to get into town and to the bank to open our joint bank account! It was... not an easy process. Banks are always very busy on Saturdays (due to Mon-Fri workers not able to get there any other time of the week) and our first two bank choices had no Saturday appointments for two weeks, and it's impossible for Jenn and I to make it any other time. The third bank we went to was a "let's give it a shot" option, though we weren't hopeful. They ended up letting us sit for a few minutes to see if anyone didn't turn up to their time-slot appointment, and when they didn't, we were allowed to go in instead. The chap who dealt with us was ridiculously friendly, and ended up giving us his business card in case we needed any help in the future (something that doesn't usually happen when you're just opening a general savers/current account), so it all went really well.
We worked on cosplay stuff too til the wee hours of Saturday, and then part of Sunday. After an inpromptu Sunday Afternoon Nap, we visited a friend of ours whose dog has recently had surgery. You wouldn't have guessed it, as the pooch was still as active as ever.
All in all, it was a damn good weekend. Opening the account has just made it even more real in my mind that Jenn and I really will be moving in together. I can't wait~
