Although I had gotten started with Lilo from Lilo & Stitch, I unfortunately won’t be debuting her for SDCC. I'm a bit sad about it, but I know it was the right decision. The pressure to finish her in time (combined with personal life issues) was giving me the same stress and anxiety I would feel when I was in school studying for finals and writing term papers and projects. It just wasn't worth it, especially since she was meant to be a simple costume to help ease my way back into the cosplay scene after a 2 year hiatus. I shouldn't be experiencing that same stress towards an activity I used to enjoy and am trying to enjoy again.
