View Full Version : How many costumes are you taking?

06-18-2003, 04:15 AM
well how many? I just relised that between my friend and I, I will be making/taking 8 costumes! That seems like a lot, but this is only my second con, and well I have to "con" my non anime friends into going! (ah I'm so witty!) So I've gotta make the most of it. Becky dosen't know yet that she will be running around all crazy like and changing costumes every few hours. I know I'm terrible. Anyone else bringing a bunch of costumes for yourself or your group?

06-18-2003, 07:28 AM
Too many! Right now it looks like I am brining 5 possibly a 6th. That would give me two changes every day unless I wear the one up (it is so normal no one would notice anyways!) I wish I could bring up a 7th, however, I am already strapped for space because I am flying.

06-18-2003, 10:14 AM
wow you guys completely blew me out of the water... I'm only bringing 2....

06-18-2003, 10:18 AM
I usually only wear 2 costumes, and take a break on sunday.
But I might even have 4 costume.. and if there is a Galaxy Angel Photo group then I will have 5. Never had that many costumes, before at a conventon! Not to sure how its done, I hate getting prepared to get into a costume to only wear it for a few hours then change out..

Maybe I'll drop a costume and just preimire is at another convetion :D

06-18-2003, 10:37 AM
I will probably bring @ 8 or so. May not wear them all, but last time I went I wore 7 of them by the time weekend was over.

06-18-2003, 10:51 AM
I'm only bringing 2 costumes. I don't think I could handle more at this point. ^_^;

Seven or eight, depending on how many I can bring, or how many are done. ^_^

06-18-2003, 01:24 PM
7 or 8 here,

06-18-2003, 01:44 PM
Let me think... I am making and bringing 7 or 8, though 4 of those are for others to wear...

3 is my limit. I can't see how people can bring 5+ costumes to one con, especially Otakon when you have to go back and forth from the hotel to the convenion center. Unless you guys have simplier costumes that you can change into quickly. :thumbsup:

06-18-2003, 03:19 PM
I have to, seeing on how I have multiple gathering. Also, I have new costumes that aren't in the gathering...

06-18-2003, 03:23 PM
I'm not sure but probably less then 4 costumes.
I'm too lazy bringing more costumes to change
into during the con.

06-18-2003, 04:34 PM
3, I can't take any more due to my wings *shakes fist*

06-18-2003, 05:23 PM
I'm cutting down this year.. I usually spend so much time changing. ^_^; Sometimes it's boring wearing the same thing for too long to me, but.... At least for Otakon, I'm going to be concentrating on CON stuff.. because of T.M.R. So I think I'm bringing.. hm.. I think I'm still bringing about 3-5 costumes. o_o We'll see.

06-18-2003, 06:16 PM
I am planning on bringing 5 or 6 if all goes according to plan. Last year I had two and it was just fine but I want to wear a bunch of stuff this year! XD yay

06-18-2003, 07:44 PM
I'm into panels and stuff, but I love walking around in costume. It shouldn't be too much changing. Pretty much we each have a costume for the monring and afternoon. Also I thought someone mentioned there was dressing rooms available.

06-18-2003, 07:47 PM
I was orginaly only bringin 3, of which 2 are done, but my friend just imformed me i have to be her luigi, so now i have 4.
most of my costumes were so that i could be in groups with friends, not really my own ideas.

06-18-2003, 08:46 PM
I'm thinking maybe... three? I don't know. Depends on a few factors. Mostly motivation! See, I have to be Gendo Ikari, else Ainslye will sacrifice me to the dark gods for not making that costume, so there's one. If Reiko wants me to go through with it (and I'd love to), I'm going to be the "Zombie Fanboy" to her "Jill Valentine" (that should be cute). I would do Wolfwood again, but he seems to be less popular than I'd have hoped (I wanna be hugged, dagnabbit). Someone suggested I be Rage from DDR 3rd Mix, and I have most of that costume already. So really, that only gives me... a -possible- three.

Anybody have any suggestions for costumes for me?

I agreed to too many groups because I guess I was being nice...or something. So that puts me at 4-5 just for groups, plus Lida for the j-rock soccer game. (I already had to say no to 3 other costumes, too...) But luckily, all but one are done (or shall be by AX) so I don't have to work on much. Oh, but then I'm making two helmet/heads for other people and bringing many plushies for other groups, too.

Go back to the hotel? I plan to change under the artist table. XD That was a good idea to save time!

06-18-2003, 09:40 PM
so far, i'm planning on having 4 but it might be 5, who knows! i don' like wearing one thing for too long so i might be changing in and out of different stuff all over the place.

06-18-2003, 09:49 PM
I am gonna bring 1 costume, MY FIRST, if I can get it done in time. I am making Shuin From Final Fantasy X-2. I hope I can get it done in time. I am also going to learn how to sew for this.

06-19-2003, 01:22 AM
I have six planned out, plus a makeshift seventh.. yeah...

Friday Day: Shuuin (FFX-2) <-- Done!
Friday Evening: Wizard (RO) <-- Gotta get started on it.
Friday Night: Ninja (Pirates VS Ninjas) <-- makeshift one. black tshirt, black pants, Tshirt mask, Naruto headband and Kakashi vest, with Rufus' gloves
Saturday Day: Tidus (FFX) <-- Done!
Saturday Evening: Seifer (FF8) <-- Very done, in fact, retiring it after Otakon
Saturday Night: SeeD Uniform (FF8) <-- Need to make the whole jacket, heh.
Sunday: Rufus (FF7) <-- Done!

Good luck with Shuuin, Chronoslider! I want pics together =D
And, where's Mahaffey? I'm from Newtown Square, outside of Philadelphia.

06-19-2003, 01:34 AM
Thx Oshi. I'm sure we'll find one another.

Mahaffey is about 20mins away from Punxsutawney otherwise known as the Groundhog town.

06-19-2003, 06:35 AM
I really have planned for 3 but looking over my time .. I may only have 2 done. My armor is taking 90% of my time.... I my have to cut off my Lynn outfit. Oh well ...

06-19-2003, 08:54 AM
sigh i think im gonna bring 5-7 lol... well only 2 are like really big costumes. the rest will be just like fun costumes ^.^ (cheap ones) they are all on cosplaylab under byn...(if anyone cares)

06-19-2003, 09:48 AM
As of now I'm only bringing one, but if I have time I'd like to bring two. But I also have to help with (which means *do*) my boyfriend's costume.....

06-19-2003, 10:27 AM
ehehe... all I can say is that im bringing a lot.... lol I cant remember half but those who know me know how many ... well here's a rough list...

:eek: I forgot about RebelCosplay's Ninja vrs Pirate fight! Well... I guess that makes my 4th one. Let's see.... That, Yuni (entire Friday and Saturday evening for DDR torney and Masquerade), Fuujin and either Lucrecia from FF7 or Lisa from Final Fantasy Unlimited... depends if I get Lisa's costume done on time.

06-19-2003, 06:05 PM
Umm... I can totally attest to Reiko's insanity. There was a point during AMA where I was in the hotel room for about two hours (I was depressed about something or other... read my rant on the other board to guess what it could have been about), and I swear the girl came in to change about three times!

Though that's fine with me. I get to be her zombie! ^_^

06-19-2003, 06:06 PM
*dies of laughter.* its true! lol Otakon will be much worse... ehehe.... I feel sorry for those who will be rooming with me... eheeh

06-19-2003, 06:08 PM
I never thought I'd say this to an attractive female... but MAN, I'm glad I'm not sleeping in the same place as you, this time! I'm glad you were limited to a few costumes for AMA, else I may have had to use your costumes as a bed!

- Loki -

06-19-2003, 06:12 PM
ehehe thanks to Lizzy Jen Monoyasha... and tora and the gang...I stuck with basically two costumes the whole weekend LOL

... yes, "basically" being the key word here... >_> ^_^*


In answer to the thread title, technically one. Just the Inu costume, but I am bringing the 2 "variations" that I wore at AMA. Nothing else tho, sorry ~_~

06-19-2003, 06:25 PM
ehehe *^_^* yup thats the key word....

for otakon you all are going to have to keep me on a kid leash or something...

06-19-2003, 06:33 PM
Reiko, I thought you were keeping ME on a leash! It would just look silly if you had me on a leash while someone had you on one!

Then again, I'm only going to have that leash as a costume accessory, not a restraint. Remember my idea with the hedge trimmers and the "Slave Liberation Movement"? *Grin*

Reiko, you have no idea how proud we are of you.

06-20-2003, 05:19 PM
Well, I believe I'll have 5-6. Not sure yet of the 6th costume. I used to only have 1-2 costumes, so this'll be a nice change in pace (and timing) ^^;; The line up goes as so...(as of now)...

Friday: Gravitation and Shia's PJs from Pita Ten
Saturday: The PJs again, Chi from chobits, and takuto from Full Moon
Sunday (not sure yet): Pyoko from Di Gi Charat

Of course, my plans are never finalized. lol See ya all there!

06-20-2003, 05:27 PM
I'm leaning towards 2. 3 if there is one I can get away with using as "casual" clothes - still obviously not street clothes, but normal enough to not be recuited for the circus outside of the convention center ^_^

06-20-2003, 05:45 PM
Oh, yeah, maybe I should post my actual list, too.. (have I done this aleady? If I have... well, just ignore me)

Rei Ayanami (plugsuit) from Evangelion

07-18-2003, 12:09 PM
You people are insane! How do you get to do anything at the con with all of these costume changes? I'm in shock... how do you make them all in time - not to mention transporting them? My cosplay group is being forced to take 4 cars for 9 people - and we only average 1-2 costumes each!

I think it's 4 or 5 costumes for me:

1. Shinji Ikari (evangelion)
2. Hibiki Takane (Capcom vs. SNK 2)
3. Ohgami Ichirou (Sakura Taisen)
4. Trowa Barton (Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz-Marymaya uniform)

I'll also be bringing King from KOF, but I won't be wearing it. A friend of mine will be wearing it for the KOF gathering Friday night and I'll be there to take pictures..

So.. 4.5 for me.. ;) See you all Thursday (or Friday) :skidude2:

08-04-2003, 01:54 AM
4 or 5 here as well.

Nakano Hiroshi (Gravitation)
Bartholomew Fatima (Xenogears)
Raziel (Angel Sanctuary)
Caesar Silverberg (Suikoden III)

08-04-2003, 12:36 PM
Hmmm....Can't believe I never posted here....Well technically I have one but I have three variations of it.
I have my regular Sesshoumaru costume
My raver Sesshoumaru
And My Pj version of Sesshoumaru
I might wear some thing else..who knows?

08-04-2003, 02:05 PM
I have 4 costumes!
Takashi(One Piece)-thrusday/sunday
Sakura HK outfit(CCS)-Sat
Wow, I can't believe that so many people are wearing more than 4 at a time! This is the first time that I will have to change a couple of times through out the day! How do you guys do it?

08-04-2003, 02:13 PM
Just two costumes for me.
Spike Spiegel - Saturday
Roger Smith - Sunday
I would have had Billy Lee Black from Xenogears for Friday but my mom's work sucks and won't give her the day off so I'll miss the Xenogears/saga shoot. Not to mention we'll be getting there so late it'll be pointless to wear a costume. x_x Actually, I'll be wearing a TMNT t-shirt, Donatello's mask, my Tae Kwon Do gi pants, belt, and carrying around Donatello's staff so I guess you could say I'll be a makeshift Donatello from the TMNT.

08-04-2003, 02:27 PM
I have a definite four costumes. Two for Friday and two for Saturday. I think that's pretty good. I suppose once I start making various costumes that I can wear over and over again, I could bring more. But changing more than once or twice a day would probably get tedious for me. ^^;

08-05-2003, 04:03 PM
Just going to be taking the one I finnished last night. Hige from Wolf's Rain.

08-05-2003, 04:38 PM
I'm going easy on the amount of costumes I'm bringing...

only 3 this time around! no stressful costume-changes for me :D
just Calintz, Joan, and Squall ^_^

Seiya Yagami
08-05-2003, 05:26 PM
I'm bringing 3.... Another Iori, Christian de Medich, and Leon (KH)

08-05-2003, 07:21 PM
Only 2 this year:

cyber Style Chun Li of Street Fighter (Friday)
Sakura of Naruto (Saturday)

08-05-2003, 08:20 PM
I have two and a half, the third is just Kenshin's hakama and Miroku's yukata to make battousai XD

08-05-2003, 09:08 PM
3 in all for me.

Nuriko (OVA version) - Fushigi Yuugi
Hiroshi - Gravitation
Youji - Weiss Kreuz

My days are kinda split up, but I have no idea how I'm gonna change from one to the other. @_@ Ohhhh boy, this should be fun.. ^^;
