Thank god I didn't make that big stick that was suppose to be going along with my costume X_X;;

relax all, anyone who wrights to me at the baaf cosplay email adress, I can give a varince to have there prop/ wepon with them during the competion.

The reason that we did the separe costume thing was that at the last shoujo con the same cosutme won best in show and best in hall contest, and that sucked! Also I think were not the only con doing this.

Okay, there goes my masquerade costume. My Marth sword I worked on for hours sketching it on wood won't be allowed...I am gonna wait till ANext to finish it and compete in it.

you can always bring your props and have them checked over at the festival by BAAF staff.

I am a guy, do I need to wear a shirt, the character I am doing doesn't.

08-15-2003, 10:01 AM
So my foam swords are ok? YAY ^_^ and I'll just have to be sheik with pocky needles....DOZN'T CONFISCATE MY POCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

08-15-2003, 12:14 PM
havent finished sword yet! yeaa but how am i going to make a sephiroth sword that wont bend if its not made from something hard *sigh* ill think of something.

i thought when i read the rueles a past time that it said there was a limit at how long your sword can be. i dont kno if when i was reading the rules the second time if i overlooked this detail. did u guys take that rule out or was it never there??

08-18-2003, 09:15 AM
guys do not need to have shirts. The sword should be checked by cosplay registration when you arive to the con. Even if you can't carry it in the hallways you will be able to have it on stage.

K thx for helping clear that up.
