View Full Version : What's your new costume this CTcon?

04-23-2007, 07:44 PM
I don't know about the rest of you, but I always try to make at least one new costume each year, and since CTcon is the con I always go to I generally debut it there.

This year I'll have at LEAST two new costumes, one much more detailed than the other. Since I'm in the Cosplay Musical I'll probably have a bunch of random costumes, but one I'd like to take off the stage too is Winry, from FMA. It won't be anything special, mostly some cloths I'll buy and alter (if I haven't already, such as with the jumpsuit I'm borrowing from one of Kaylee Frye costumes) but I'm really excited for it nonetheless.

My main costume this year is (hopefully) going to be Lina Inverse from Slayers (this costume specifically the variation from NEXT, aka season 2 of the anime series). I've been waiting to do this costume since I was at least 14--that's over six years ago! I'm so excited to finally be doing it, but also glad I waited since if I'd done it back then my mom would have been making it for me and with Lina as one of my most favorite characters I'd rather put the work into it myself.

What about you?

I think I'll definately be gettin Zidane done by then, and then hopefully Ancient version Yami Bakura. But it'll probably only be Zidane, because I'm slow with costumes, and I don't want to rush and mess up any of it. ^_^

If my cosplay plans don't change...again...I will be going as:

First Day - Kairi (pink dress, KH2)

Second Day - Ash Ketchum (yes, from Pokémon), but in his Diamond and Pearl outfit (Newest Series/Season)...because I love the pants. =O They're totally awesome. The pockets...are like...big enough to hold a cellphone and an MP3 Player.

Third Day - Yasuna Kamiizumi from Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~

First and Third day were changed various times. XD; The last change was because of my friend. =3 She's going as Roxas. And I asked her to be Hazumu. =3

...I'm in charge of making ten costumes though, so I'm (sort of) not happy about that. =_=; I must make three for me, three for my friend being Roxas, three for my younger sister, and one for one of my other friends. XP But that's because I'm the only one who can sew. XD; But my friends are all paying for their own fabric! ^^ Yeah...I'm just rambling now...

well i wont be much this year unless i whip out my Shuichi battery for the ma squared if i don't have all the people i need for the pokemon group.

My girlfriend and I are going as Team Rocket and my best friend is going as Officer Jenny, or she wants to anyway. And her other friend is going as misty, all we need is nurse Joy, Ash and Brock! i can't wait this is the first cosplay group that's going to work out for me with a hole bunch of people! (i hope)

04-29-2007, 01:06 PM
Ooo. =3 That's cool. XD; I'm trying to get my mom to be Jessie. But she's like "But what colour is Jessie's hair? Is it fushia? Or red? It's different depending on the picture." What would you suggest for the wig colour? I was thinking red or burgandy.

04-29-2007, 04:04 PM
Oi, so major update on my cosplay for this year...Looks like I'll be putting off Lina for another year ONCE AGAIN. I've got too many other costumes to do that require my hair to be blond. So! My connecticon cosplays for this year are now:

Aeris from FFVII
Winry from FMA
Ino from Naruto
Elena from FFVII
Team Rocket Goon

Songstress Yuna from FFX-2
Summoner Yuna from FFX (maybe)

Holy crap thats a lot of costumes O_o

Luckily the only ones I'm hand making entirely are Aeris and Ino. The other ones are gunna be store bought & altered.

Well-- mine IS a top-secret project at the moment, but let's just say that it will involve fibre-optic lighting... :eek:

Fiber-optic lighting? Now I'm intrigued.

05-11-2007, 10:42 PM
*looks up* did i hear lights? I'll be stalking anyone who's shiney if i can get away for a while and if i don't get kidnapped by the staff and be brainwashed into working. >.>

but yahhhhh it looks like people or persons wants my battery back again so i might do that, though have to get the wig again cause i don't know where it went to. - -

but team rocket is in the works as we speak. I hope.

05-23-2007, 06:57 AM
well i have two new costumes, i have Azure kite (which i can hopefully get doen in time) and Suigetsu from naruto

05-24-2007, 06:46 PM
I'm making two hopefully. I might only complete one though. If I complete anything it'll be Shikamaru. It'll be my first cosplay too. So I'm trying to put a lot of effort into it. Especially since almost all Shikamaru cosplays are bad. I'm going to try to make up for it.

05-24-2007, 11:39 PM
i'm gonna be cosplaying as haseo when i'm not volunteering. and maaaybe as hitsugaya, but that costume might be just for otakon. we'll see...

05-25-2007, 03:49 PM

alphonse (blue jacket version)
noa (funeral dress)
all fma related

05-26-2007, 04:16 PM
Thinking of going as Clara/Psiren from FMA. Not as well known, but she has a surprising number of fans considering the number of episodes she was in. That would be...one.

Hopefully no Eds will chase me through the building. Entertaining thought, though.

06-18-2007, 09:30 PM
I'll hopefully be rocking out my Pit from Kid Icarus and Super Smash Brothers Brawl. Also going to hopefully have final form Ishida Uryuu from Bleach all polished by then.

06-19-2007, 01:30 AM
Due to bad timing, I can't go as a Skull Sader this year. I'll have it ready for AB though.

06-29-2007, 09:57 AM
I will be dressed as Matt from Dramacon volume 1 and a tod from the web comic Seraphic (http://www.seraphicblue.net/).

I may bring a third costume for cosplay chess. We'll see...

06-29-2007, 12:10 PM
I'm going to be Tohru from Fruits Basket, and maybe a Moogle. I haven't done cosplay in so long - I'm very excited.

07-06-2007, 04:19 PM
The finally completed Rufus ShinRa in time for the musical, plus whatever else actually gets done by then. Probably the chocobo and definitely Mugen. We'll see.

By the by, here's our flyer. Everyone come and see the second ever Cosplay Musical!^^


07-06-2007, 05:01 PM
I'm adding "Caged" bird wings to my neji costume this year. To symbolise him as a "Caged" being.

07-07-2007, 09:41 PM

07-07-2007, 10:18 PM
Don't think my costume is new, but I myself am a newcomer XD. I'll be cosplaying as hanyou InuYasha one day (probably Friday), youkai InuYasha another (probably Saturday), and maybe human InuYasha Sunday. I don't have a black wig for human InuYasha though, so I might just go back to hanyou InuYasha for Sunday.

07-08-2007, 02:26 AM
Finally with the con less than a week away, I can post my group's final costumes. I'll be Moaning Myrtle with a Snape and possibly a Luna (yay random Harry Potter characters), Fish-Eye with the rest of the Amazon Trio in their kimono-ish "disguises," and a random kurololita with my brother as Angel from Rent. It's my first time having 3 new costumes at a convention, so I'm excited. ^_^

07-09-2007, 12:24 PM
new getups? secret XP but only second time to CT con, so almost anything is new for that

07-09-2007, 02:19 PM
Oooh, so you are coming this year? Yay! :D

07-09-2007, 10:32 PM
All my costumes are new since it's my first year at ConnectiCon.

IF my wigs really make it here by Thursday this is my tentative schedule.

Friday - Chii from Chobits. I might be there with a Freya, but she's not sure since she doesn't have her wig.

Saturday - Larxene from Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories

Sunday - Pansy Parkinson from Harry Potter...possibly...probably.

07-11-2007, 12:28 PM
I'm going this year as Rinali Li from D. Gray-Man.

Which sucks because I only know one other person cosplaying from that anime and its an Allen.

07-11-2007, 07:30 PM
I'm only going on Friday seeing that a few days away I'll be leaving for Otakon. <3

I'll be going as the Artbook version of Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood, (The blue dress, not the white. <3)

07-11-2007, 09:02 PM
I'm going only Saturday but bringing two costumes. I'm mainly wearing my FFVII:AC/KHII Yuffie costume and changing into my crossplay Homura later on in the day after the KH photo shot for a few hours...then back into Yuffie again.

07-12-2007, 08:30 PM
Lucrecia Crescent from Dirge of Cerberus....Hopefully I'll master the hair in time and it wont look terrible. I couldnt find a wig and I didnt want to cut my hair because once it curled again it would look bad so I have to use hairclips for the bangs and deal with my too-short-for-anything-awesome hair...and I'm wearing that on Saturday =D
