So whats everyone's countdown schedules look like?  Finishing Costumes?  Lose Weight?  Lose weight to fit into costumes that have been finished?  or just relax and wait for things to come?

Personally im in the "lets start working out again" mode.  A friend pointed me to the Iphone fitness app Zombies, Run!  and between the voice acting, story, and "game" elements of the app, its doing a pretty solid job keeping me motivated.  Just got to keep it up.

The high level of excitement is finally hitting me! Probably because I'm no longer worrying about school again until August. Gotta continue the fitness thing I started a few months back because of a spandex requiring costume. Adding walking 2 miles a few times per week to it too just to prep my feet and back that always tend to suffer during con weekend.

Other than that, it's just adding the finishing touches on costumes and beginning my planning on an Excel spreadsheet. Call me old school (or too poor to have a phone with Apps, haha).

Saving, saving, saving so I'll have enough $$$ to pay for everything (including my hotel room, and a new smart phone), and working on my body (walking!  all the walking) and my costume.

Starting to tuck cash away for the con. I think this year I'll just do Zombie on Friday night and then go casual the rest of the way. The first time I went to this con, I didn't wear any costume. I want a year that feels like that again. We will see....

I broke out my pedometer so I can start keeping track of how much I walk.  Trying to get prepared for all that walking that goes on at Dragon*Con!! 

I remember last time I came back with the numbers of how much I walked, and a friend of mine was in disbelief that I could have walked so much.  Mwahaha!  He is coming this time, so he will see first-hand that it is sooooo much walking! :)

::too excited::

It's weird to me that this year seems to be sneaking up on me. I keep telling myself, oh yeah I'll do those small costume projects soon. There's lots of time left... now there's hardly over 2 months!

Heck yes!  This will be my fourth trip to D*C!  Not long now.  I have to finish up a few costumes and such but other than that I'm golden.  I will be extra excited this year because I get to be a judge for a costume contest for winning the "Rename the Comic Book Babes Contest" contest!  I've never judged anything before so it should be a blast!

As far as I know, D*C doesn't do tiered ticketing for the badges.  There isn't even a mention of "VIP" memberships on the website. I hope your friend didn't sell you a bill of goods.

Its probably passes to one of the parties like the contourage parties like firefly suggested the only way I know to get actual VIP dragoncon passes is to be a guest or a eternal and eternal memberships cost 2k.
