I think I already know most of my costumes for this. XD There are two groups I've gotten into and I need to wear Gambit again, so... that's three costumes, and I'd probably only add one more, if that, to the line up.

If all goes well, it looks like there's going to be a Clow Card group at Megacon, at which point I will be dumb and take out The Sweet again. And, what I'm holy crap excited for, we're slowly pulling together a Legend of Drizzt cosplay group. I have a friend who's going to be Drizzt, and I want to do my dream (but DUMB) cosplay of Jarlaxle from the series. People are trying to talk me out of it (who knows, they might succeed), but I really want to cosplay him. XD

Woohoo Megacon! My cosplay group and I are planning an Earth Defense Force 2017 group =3

If anyone is game, lemme know.

Mega's my favorite con I think. Is it going to be in the same wing of the convention center as this year or the one from last year? I liked the new wing.

Megacon is basically in my backyard, so it's my first con of the season. I'm going to bring back my RED Medic from Team Fortress 2 (I should have a large group with me, too), plus two new costumes for 2009: Wormwood Gentleman Corpse and Johann Krauss from Hellboy2.

If anyone else is planning Wormwood (I know it' a long shot, but I'd love to have a Mr. Pendulum with me) or Hellboy cosplays, send me a PM!

Hey, I'm doing Hellboy too! I'm going as Princess Nuala. I made a topic for it in the Megacon forum. I'll probably being going as Nuala most of the con, Death for when I want to be comfy and maybe a twisted, rave girl version of the Joker.

Probably not going, unless the guest list is amazing. It just wasn't any fun this year. Too crowded, and the comic/scifi aspect is being overshadowed by anime now too.

Hyper_Phantom
07-24-2008, 01:35 PM
Ok, I've got my official line up.

Female Joker
Nurse Joker
Princess Nuala

^_^ Mega is sooo far away, but it'll creep up in no time.

Altair-Assassins Creed
Prince Nuada-Hopefully
and someone from naruto

Looks like the Fatal Frame group probably won't happen. I have a super secret cosplay planned! Wheeee! Maybe I'll actually be able to keep anyone from finding out about it this time....^^;

Dude, I loved Batman Beyond as a kid. Thus I love you for making a BB cosplay! <3 My friends and I are doing a female Batman group. (We're mostly all villains). We should get together and do a photoshoot together! =D

And from the looks of it, I might just look like a female version of him. O.O

Thank you very much, and I'm sure you're going to be an awesome Batman. We have plenty of days til the con to decide what days we'll get together. Now that I think about it, I think the sci fi costume contest is on Sunday, so I'll probably be wearing Nuala on Sunday. But who knows. We'll see.

I plan on attending Mega, since 2 of my costumes are already complete. Robin Sena is complete, just need a wig. Also, Yoko from Twelve Kingdoms is complete, just need a wig for her as well. My third costume has yet to be worked on yet. Hopefully next year's Megacon will be better than this year's. *fingers crossed*

As far as planned cosplays go, I've got three planned but I'm hoping to maybe sneak in a fourth by then >.>

Oh, I understand. Well, I hope this year is a lot more fun for you then. If your friends start giving you problems just leave them. You went through a lot to enjoy the con, don't let anyone ruin it for you! o_o If you need another group of peeps to hang out with, you can hang with me and my friends. We're pretty kool, and not a headache. ^^ Well, in my opinion, but I've met so much worse lol. xD

I want to get started. I probably could based off of the references I have, but I would like to wait until my art book comes in so I'll be absolutely sure what I need.

And I need to try and figure out hotel/wherever we're staying information. I'll probably wait till I see everybody next week....

I wish I could start thinking about Megacon, but I don't think that's happening until after Necro or Jani. XD

I should really start playing with that bald cap soon, though, see if I can actually make it work. I seem to always plan at least one cosplay per Megacon that no one is ever able to recognize me in, and I think Jarlaxle will fill that quota this year. x3

Har har har! I bought my make up for Nuala! At least I'm getting somewhere! =D *Stares at it* Want. To. Play. *Resists*

@ Sunako
That would be...beyond kool...o_o
I'd so do it if I wasn't so overwhelmed with costumes already. I dunno how I'm gonna juggle four costumes for 3 days. XD Perhaps next year? I'll do Banana suit Joker as well. (<--random thought from earlier. Joker+Banana suit=wtfbbqrofl Lol I'll use my bananarang against Batman)

@ Prota
Yeah, I'm really happy we got those two in the group! Our Two face is the only male! Everyone else is a girl. XD There might be pics of me, Harle and Ivy in a few months. As for everyone else, prolly not. They're prolly all doing their stuff last minute. I just really hope they all pull through. Our Riddler already left, but there's another friend of ours that's going to take it up.
But so far we have:
Joker
Harle
Ivy
Catwoman
Two Face
Mad Hatter
Someone from Birds of Prey
Penguin
Riddler

I hope we get a Mr. Freeze! =3

@ Tsuoi
I feel the same.
Sadness. =(

@Kitsune
If you go, Katie and I are going to give you many hugs. ^^;; I wanted to say hi at Metro but I was kinda shy about it. So I was like "Oh hey, it's Sam. I should say hi." *Watch. Scared. Walk away* XD Lolol.

Yes, do it! Do it! Since you'll be hanging with us, you might as well jump in the Batman group as well! =D We do need a Scarescrow cause none of the girls want to do it.
Even if you don't finish the Gotham Knight version in time, you're welcome to join in. *cough* >.>...<.<...*nudge nudge*

All you'd have to do is wear a suit and a potato sack on your head. (You can get the material at JoAnn's too! It's in the clearence isle most of the time.) Simple stuff.

You don't even have to do it by the book. Most of us are making our own versions. Like my Joker is going to have a corset and skirt. Harle is doing a cute skirt and hoodie thing, etc. So a shirt and slacks would work as well. ^_^

I really wish Scarecrow had a larger part in the Dark Knight movie.

No worries, it's understandable. ^^;;
But Awww, no Prince Nuada? =(
I'm going as a female raver Joker with cyber dreads or Princess Nuala. I'll be with a huge batman group. We can figure out a meeting place a little before the con. Prolly near a pillar in the main lobby or by the stairs. If I'm the Joker I'll have a huge sign saying "Why so serious?" and on the back "free smiles".

Yep, look for the epic sign mwahaha. If you don't see it, then it's likely I'm there as Nuala then. Just look for a short pale elf girl in that case. If I am Nuala I'll hold up a sign with somethin like "Are you Cry4Eternity? O_o o_O"

sorry for the confusion i meant for megacon not afo,nuadas costume is more difficult then nualas plus when im done with the costume ill have to ask you about the hole makeup process,i saw the work you have done so far and i have to say it look really good.Also you can do that if you want with the sign that would be kind of funny.But perhaps at megacon you and me can go together heck we could put the scars on our faces they got in the movie.

What do you mean about AFO? O.o;;
So you are going as Nuada! Yay! ^w^ I'll have a brother!
But it's true, your costume is way harder than mine. Did you see the pattern I posted up on the Hellboy forum? It has some similar designs to Nuada's final outfit. If you need any help with the costume, feel free to ask. I don't really know what I could do all the way over here though, except help you with make up. Which is pretty easy. I'll film a tutorial for you as soon as I get a camcorder or webcam and post it up on you tube. If not, I'll try to explain it to you through pics, and if all else fails, I'll just do your make up at the con. =P

What do you mean about AFO? O.o;;
So you are going as Nuada! Yay! ^w^ I'll have a brother!
But it's true, your costume is way harder than mine. Did you see the pattern I posted up on the Hellboy forum? It has some similar designs to Nuada's final outfit. If you need any help with the costume, feel free to ask. I don't really know what I could do all the way over here though, except help you with make up. Which is pretty easy. I'll film a tutorial for you as soon as I get a camcorder or webcam and post it up on you tube. If not, I'll try to explain it to you through pics, and if all else fails, I'll just do your make up at the con. =P

Hyper: Awwwuh, you should have said hi! I didn't see you at all (then again, I didn't see much of anything, running around everywhere). I'll definitely try to find you guys at Mega!

Okay, so I think I convinced my friend to do HUGE-FREAKING-GUN!Dot from ReBoot (Season 2, episode 10, Web World Wars), so I'm going to try the ReBoot group thing again next year. Hopefully it pans out, unlike last year. If I can get the hair/helmet to work, I'll do Mouse, otherwise, I might be trying Hexadecimal.

Any of the groups I'm in would love to meet up with others! :3 Though, most of them are fairly obscure in the cosplay world at this point, so I'm not expecting much. So far, there's: Legend of Drizzt (Drizzt Do'Urden, Jarlaxle, possible Artemis Entreri); Clow Card Group (oh goodness, I don't know where to start... so far, I know of The Fiery, The Fight, The Rain (or Cloud, forget which), and The Sweet, with others I can't remember and others still deciding); and ReBoot (two Dots, Mike the TV, and Mouse or Hexadecimal). We... don't have any days for any of these yet, unfortunately. <_<

Why don't patterns show the BACK of the outfit? I found an awesome pattern for the super-secret cosplay, only to find while cutting the pattern that there were PLEATS in the back of part of it. There are no pleats anywhere on my costume, so now I have to edit them out. And just when I thought that I had found a pattern that would require minimal altering.

And I need impossible beads AGAIN.

But the good news is, I've started my costume XD.

I don't go to many events at MegaCon but do they require badges for the viewing rooms and such? I only know for entering the costume contest and the dealers room is it required. I know some con's. only require a badge for the dealers room and the rest of the events are free.

As for my Robin Sena costume, I still need to get a wig and make her pendant.

Well, here's what I was thinking of doing when I try to make Nuada (one day) I have this old baton that I have for a good while. Been twirling it here and there and I began doing some Nuada moves. I realized, his weapon is practically a baton with a tip. If you can find a decent one and alter the colors some and construct a tip onto it, you'll have his weapon, and its a bit cheaper. I dunno, its just what I plan to do for my Nuada.

I can't wait for Megacon! I had SO much fun last year! I love the mixture of all genres at this convention - it makes for a very enjoyable con. I'll be hitting up some Star Wars cosplay as Wedge Antilles (X-Wing fighter pilot suit) along with my husband as Luke Skywalker(which he looks nearly identical to). For the costume contest it'll be our cosplays from Samurai Legend Musashi which are currently in progress.

I know a girl who's done all my smash photoshoots, but I think it's time for a change cause we usually just do the same things.

Either works for me, never done a photoshoot, I figure I'll just go wherever you want me to go, we are both in Orlando so it doesn't have to be at a convention at all.

Aww it would be fun, and it saves you from having to dress as Pit at Megacon if you didn't plan on it. Same as me not having to shave my Silent Bob beard. Let me know if you are interested, I don't mind either way.

would you be doing the Game Cube or DS versions? i have been thinking of making a Yuke costume

Game Cube. We bought the game with one of Mark's birthday gift cards-- mainly because I liked the way it looked and we wanted to play more games together. We haven't made it very far yet, but the clavats are just so CUTE!!! I think I'll make Mark a male Clavat if I have time. Too bad the lilities wear so much armour or I would make one for Kaedmon!

Ahh Megacon. So far I know my sis and I will be Utena and Nanami from Revolutionary Girl Utena. And as soon as my husband picks a character to do I'll work on his costume, too.
Hopefully I'll get Falsetto (Eternal Sonata) done...once I get started on her. lol. We'll see. Other than that...not sure. I know we'll be there Saturday and some of Sunday, same as last year. A 6 hour drive to make is long and boring.

I'll be bringing an alto saxophone along and will be performing Godot's Theme from time to time (seeing that its a saxophone based theme =p). I'll also be playing other phoenix wright songs and then i have an EPIC performance that I'm planning to do in the costume contest (IF ALLOWED and if not i'll prolly do it in the lobby area) that i know EVERYONE will love.

Awww, that'd be so nice of you!! I would absolutely love if you did that. I just hope we can arrange a Brawl photoshoot... they always seem to have less people than who agreed to go.
If that doesn't work out (or if you wanna do two :D) I'm probably going to do a Kingdom Hearts one. I'm gathering people already - negativedreamer said he's going to touch up his Cid cosplay and Momo<3Cherries is gonna be Kairi. I want to find a Sora (I'm sure that won't be hard) because I think between he/she and I, we can get some badass pictures with "form changing" and all. And I wanna get a pic of Kairi rubbing my belly like a kitty X3
Photoshoot or not, I'll get you some awesome poses :3 It's tough coming up with ones of my own XD Pit was easy cause he had a bunch of poses on Brawl!

If memory serves, Hall D was where Megacon was back in 2005 & 2006. The dealer room area was much larger than last year's, but the hallways weren't so open (as opposed to Hall B).

Yeah my friends who went last year said that Hall D was the old place it was at and they just moved it to the north concourse for 08. They said they liked Hall D better.

A bigger dealers room? I hope so Oo I nearly passed out in the dealers room Saturday this year when i went through it. So much stuff and so many people. >.> not fun.

As far as cosplays go for this con we have a pretty much full Organization XIII group. We're just missing a Lexeaus. For some reason no one wants to cosplay him. But other then him we have everyone. Plus a Namine and a few others. The ones we have are posted on mssaturday.deviantart.com 's journal =3 We're still looking for other KH characters. Kairi is taken though.

Hm, last year was my first year so that's all I know.

But where is Hall D? I'm looking at the map and I don't see it anywhere. Which Concourse is it in? I see two rooms marked as D, but they look tiny and they're in a separate building that's not even part of the Convention Center.

On this page: http://www.occc.net/global/directions.asp#Maps

I'm looking at the OCCC Site Plan/Parking Map

Personally, I don't even go in the Dealer's Room... so this is sounding kind of lame. I liked having big open hallways and the lobby to be in.

If I read it correctly, it's across the street from the concourse of last year. I think the one with the overhead walkway/bridge across the street connecting them both.

lol there. XD

it...wasnt so bad. the only complaint that a friend and i had was just how effing loud it is in there. the ceilings are very much higher than the other side where it was before, so i recommend bringing the tylenol.

and the dealers room did seem bigger. still just as cramped :/

also i reaaaaalllly hope it doesnt change on us again. i hated wandering above i-drive traffic, freezing my toosh off looking for just where in gods name megacon was hiding. >_<

I snagged the below statement off of Megacon's website:
MegaCon 2009 will be held in Hall D at the Orange County Convention Center. This hall is located in the west building which is across the street from were we were last year.

The West Building is the building Megacon has been in every year (minus this year's). It is the large, dark tan building across the street (I-Drive) from the Peabody hotel. If you were heading up from Sea World on I-Drive, it would be the building on your left hand side. It is NOT the building it was in this year, but the old building.

To find Hall D, you enter the building at the center lobby area (this is the slighty curved, heavily glass front of the Convention Center). Make an immediate left. You'll pass through some glass doors, and at that time you'll be entering Hall D.

Keep in mind, when you're in the general area of Megacon, its pretty easy to just follow the cosplayers to the right area.

I checked the building layouts on the Orange County Convention Center website. They have a cool interactive map system to help you find where you want to go.

I decided to make Wander from Shadow of the Colossus for OhayoCon, so I'll also be bringing it to Mega with me and saving my Eternal Sonata plans for MetroCon or AWA. My boyfriend will most likely bring Kamina from Gurren Lagann or Captain Ukitake from BLEACH. Maybe both if we go two days, in which case I plan to wear Simon from Gurren Lagann Sunday (if we go Sunday, that is).

And ya know, it's good to hear we're going back to the old hall. It's nostalgic. This will be my...fifth MegaCon? Jeez, time flies.

Friday--The Baroness from GI Joe

Having trouble with where we're going to stay. Con hotel seems best, but one of my friends is intent on it just being four of us in the room and I know none of us can afford ticket + our share of the room for two nights. If we get more people it'll be perfectly fine, but she keeps trying to say "well, can't we look for a cheaper place" or "let's drive to and from instead" (yeah, right. 2 hours there and back for three days....uh-huh...). Seriously, she's one of my best friends who almost never even gets close to on my nerves, but she's really making me want to pull my hair out right now.

Hopefully my Misuzu from Air will be done and I can do my crossplay that I have been planning for so long (main thing is to buy a coset) and possibly Asuna from Negima just cause the armor is so kick ass (cover of volume 16) and would love to make it, which would mean another crossplay and another wig (wigs don't like me).

I've got a question and I want to get everyone's opinion. I know I'm going to ask the officials on this but here it goes.
For my boyfriend's character, if I can't get his weapon finished I was thinking of bringing a wheely chair (kind of a joke in the series) and I was wondering, in the past has anybody seen anybody bring chairs like this to Megacon and the officials (I think that's the word...) were okay with it? I'll be emailing them later to ask if it's alright still.

Speaking of wigs... I just got a super awesome Princess Serenity wig off of ebay! I just about cried when I saw it. The ponytails on that thing are 39 inches long!

Oh my god! I need to seriously get on the ball - this convention will be here before I know it!
Gotta finish up Gandrake and work on Musashi. I'll be ordering the wig for Musashi sometime later this week so I can work on the homg epic zig zags of doom.

:crylaugh: I have a feeling that someone will get pwned by your hair.


Speaking of hair.. I still need to get a wig for my Yoko costume. That, and try to find some shoes to go with the skirt that's really hard to walk in. >.> I tested the costume at my Halloween party, and it was difficult to play limbo in. It's a heavy costume. As for other costume plans, I don't know anymore :(

Is Megacon going to be the con of difficult and dangerous hair? XD 'Cause then I definitely need to make sure Mouse gets done.

I have an idea, but I don't get to see if it'll work 'til the holiday break. :< I hate the last month of the semester, EVERYTHING is due.

Good luck with that, Beatrix! :3

I feel so good about not using a wig this time around. None of my costumes need one! For Kain i'll be dyeing my hair back to orange (lost color so now it's blonde from the bleaching) so that'll be a cinch, and for Lexaues, i'll be using my hair again. Gonna have to find some way to turn the color down so it's not bright orange all over the place (maybe the Manic Panic colored hair gel). And for my Black Parade member (if I get around to it) i'm probably just gonna straighten it and leave it alone. Should be kick ass!

Megacon is coming so fast I really need to put the manga down and get to work on costumes. Looking forward to seeing some of the costumes mentioned here.

Ah, my costumes can wait till January. (I procrastinate, plus i'm broke and don't have a job, therefore no source of income, therefore no source of outcome resulting in no fabric which results in no costumes being made. Luckily when I graduated I decided not to move out, so I don't have to pay for gas, insurance, food, rent, electric, etc.) Also, I only have to make one. My lexaues is already complete aside from the prop cause it's the same jacket for everyone. Then, my Kain is about 80% finished or so, and the only one I have to make is the Black Parade member which should be easy. Getting the paint to do my face is another matter. (I wnat to do a skull on my face to go with the theme)

Thankyou!
I already have a few methods I'm going to try. It'll have to be lightweight whatever I do.
My husband hates wigs but he's excited about this one.

And...can't wait to see yours as well. :P

I'm a little over halfway finished with this one :

I started on my shoulder armor for Siegfried this evening. Using rigid wrap over a mixture of Styrofoam and gutter mesh. I'm looking at covering it in a thin layer of paper clay so I can get a super smooth finish. I'm feeling good about the progress ^_^

the edges and everything will look better when I trim it up a bit.

Megacon yay =D.

I should start on my cosplays asap. They are gonna eat me D=. Smelly Fire of Emblem with your details!!!

So I should have Mist from Fire of Emblem and some other stuff, that will be known closer to the con, my friends and I have some ideas running around about who else we can do that isn't as big as our FE group.

I've got a huge .hack group set up, but e haven't gotten any further than figuring out who's what, and starting to gather materials.

Slowly but surely getting there on both costumes.

And We've got a free place to stay now, so I think my friends and I will leave Thursday night so we can avoid Friday morning traffic to Orlando!

I have to hurry up and get a job so that I can get some money to pay for a hotel and entrace fee. I'm sure i'll get one. Gonna go check up on some applications I turned in on wednesday tomorrow. Maybe one will work out.

Anyway, gonna probably scrap my other two costumes for the weekend and do a Nico from Hakushaku to Yousei one two days. Whcih would mean, that I would have Lexaeus and Nico instead of Lexaeus, Kain (or other Vampire Knight Character), and a MCR Black Parade member, the Vampire Knight one not complete, and the MCR one not even started. So, be pretty much ditching two far from complete costumes for one easy to do costume.

My fiancee and myself are gonna be doing Hellsing as usual, but we've also decided that we're going to be cosplaying from Interview With the Vampire. I'm going as either Louis or Armand, I just can't decide on which; but I'm gonna have to decide fast so I can get started on my costume. Any suggestions on who I should go as?

Woo-hoo! I'm so excited for Megacon. You have no idea. I'm already working on my cosplays! *points to siggy*. They are subject to change though- I might wind up doing Lenne from FF-X2 and someone else. Malin is the only one I'm sure on.

tsuoi_kaze- If all else fails, can I room with you? I had a bit of a rooming mishap last year and so now I'm looking for a backup just in case.

my work load just cut itself in half x/. i was going to do the artbook back design on my fai coat for megacon, but decided against it due to the way id like to do it and the money i dont have. instead, im going to try and make his staff (zomg, perhaps one that lit up?!!?) which will be the first prop i have every truly sat down by myself and made in a while. which means, for the coat and inner jacket all i have left to do is the trims and the little leather sashy..thing.

less than 100 days and the holidays seem to be slowing everything don xO

I'm still gonna do my last minute costumes. They come out good, and is best for this year cause right now i'm broke and can't buy anything. This is why I didn't want to move, impossible to find a job.

Real quick, what is the age to get a hotel room? I heard it was 19, but I was on hotels the other day (I think it was hotels) and it said 18, so which is it? (i'm 18 right now)

Dangit, I hate how time flies in the holiday season. :< Haven't started on anything for Mouse yet; won't be until after Christmas (*totally going shopping then for supplies*). Here's hoping it still comes together.

Also, I have conned a group of friends into cosplaying various X-Men characters in their pajamas. >D I've also got a couple to do actual X-Men characters in normal outfits, which makes me happy. <3 I think we'll be doing both on Friday (though I have a feeling we'll only be in the PJ outfits for a little bit around the con before going back to someone's place to hang out). Saturday will definitely see the Clow Card group for the Cosplay Contest, as well as Mouse if I can change into her in enough time to make it to the Universal Costume Contest. Sunday is still completely up in the air, depending on what I can get done and what group my friends decide to pull together: right now, it's looking like Mouse, Jarlaxle, Lust, Trucy, or Colette.

I have never used e6000 before and you would have been able to tell last night. I felt like I was high on it. Stupid Stein shoes! Stupid not wanting to spend money on new ones and painting them but actually using old/dead shoes and gluing fabric to them.....x3
