Yeah I'm usually pretty calm lol :) And anyway making the costume was fun so I can't really call it that stressful. The only thing that stressed me out a bit was I had was I ordered a wig off Ebay and the seller forgot to send it until I reminded her. It arrived the day before the convention. I had given up on it a couple of days before that and bought a crappy Halloween one, and it was so terrible I thought about scrapping the whole costume as it wouldn't have really worked without the wig.

I did one practice run the night before to make sure I could get it on and hide my real hair under it. I also wanted to cut the wig shorter, but I didn't have time. I didn't want to risk butchering the thing in a rush and not being able to wear it at all after all the panic!

April, if you need to glue leather or letherette (for a gunbelt), I reccommend 'Bostik leather adhesive'.
I once bought some regular fabric glue and it was crap - even though it said it was suitable for leather! If you can't get a glue gun - its a cheaper alternative!
