O.O I just watched like a million and two videos of cosplay and cons and I am vamped up. It was probably not a good idea but after going to AD2K8 and Kakkoi Con for my first year i am tottaly addicted to them. *sighs*

lol anyway. Who is everyone planning on cosplaying?! Me and two of my friends are going as Edward(me!) Alphonse(kiwi!) and Winry(T!) From Fullmetal Alchemist. Yes, i am hooked to that anime/manga.. dang... lol But we are brining them back from the dead so I will see how that goes.

I might also cosplay Rukia agian, and Shana but idk lol.

Gah! I need to stop talking about me, what about you guys!? I want to know what you are all up to lol. :)

We are currently trying to make D.Gray Man cosplays and maybe form a group at school.
I'm Allen Walker
And she's my Lavi x3
We're Gonna try and make the 3rd uniforms, which shouldn't be to hard. (tho it's our first time.)
AND! We...or I...Got so excited we started a show on Youtube where we do a bunch of things in our cosplay. Still need to plan a date to get together and record the inro to it...SO yeah
I just don't my cosplays to be sittin' in my closet till another con comes around.

PhantomTheifSai- That sounds like alot of fun! I am very very tempted to do crazy things like that. Exspecialy(sp? i can't spell right now... x.x) 'cuse we have a highschool anime club and we are all nuts. It would be fun to mess around in cosplay. haha I went to walmart yesterday in cosplay, people were looking at me wierd, it felt awsome. ^_^

Kino017-Sounds like alot of fun with those cosplays. =D


I can't wait... ggrrr and I am getting closer and closer to finishing my cosplays, ahhh! I get my self so excited I think it is bad for my health. x.x

I'm really excited to. I couldn't get tickets this year, but I went in 2007 and it was a blast. So I can't wait!
I have a lot of cosplays planned or '09, and I want to wear some of my older ones again, so I'm not exactly sure who I'll end up being. I'll probably be Yin from Darker Than Black for sure on one of the days, and Rhyme from the World Ends With You (we have a little mini group from that game, so I'm almost 100% sure I'll show up as her...), but as for the other day I'm not quite sure. I have a Sai (from Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro) planned, and I have my old Alkaid from .hack//G.U. that I still want to wear, so maybe one of those. Or Yachiru if my friends beg me enough.

kanghead
10-06-2008, 06:22 AM
Theres a good chance I can go for '09, but theres like a 5% chance I can't go. D:
But yeah.
If I do go, I'm not sure which one I'm doing, but since I have plenty of breaks from school I'll pick something.

I was just working out cosplay ideas!! XD; Oh man I can't wait until AD!

If I don't get one of my friends to be Light again this year, I think I'm going to convert my L into a Beyond Birthday. Because it'll be fun. XD If not, I'll just be Light myself, he's my favorite!

Probably Aeris Gainsborough again, since I bring her to every convention.

I really wanna make a new costume but I've no concrete ideas yet, just little muses.

Going as yellow power ranger from MMPR (original) along with a putty, and a megazord (damn straight). really excited for Detour. its the only think I look forward to after christmas that keeps me going through school XD its my reward. I love going its so much fun. Did Shion for a bit last year till I found out I was allergic to wig. Plus the dress was kept up with fishing wire. Not fun.
but anyway. MMPR costume is 75-80% done. Have to do sewing of diamonds, buy white gloves, and make helmet, but its all done otherwise. Megazord is 5% done. Putty is...well if we can get the zentai its gonna be like 75% done XD easy costume

Well it's nice to know that there will be more D.Gray-man at Detour than there was at Kakkoicon... (I was Tyki)

For Detour... uh... I think I'm bringing Sheik from SSBB, Anita (in that Chinese gown from hell) from DGM, and either Kanda (from the 4th level akuma fight at the end of the anime) or Squall (SEED uniform)... or both if I can figure out a way to fit all that in...

My girlfriend has Link, Lavi, and Rinoa...if she decides to come...

I saw you at Kakkoicon - you were really great!

Changed my costumes...I don't think I'll be doing Sai this year. I love him, but I want something more challenging, since both Yin and Rhyme are going to be pretty easy. I was thinking Chidori from Persona 3 or C.C. from Code Geass instead, but maybe not. I tend to change my mind at the last minute. ^^

OMFG!! So excited for AD this year. Last year me and two of my friends went. ( our first con, total n00bs) And we went as the S.O.S Brigade! We had expensive wigs and everything! XD It was thrilling. This year, although I'm sure at some point we'll whip(yeah, that's wright, whip with an 'h!') out the old SOS clothes, I'm going with five other people, and let's see....Our costumes will be....

All four of the princesses/queens of the Sailor Moon series(Queen Serenity, Princess Silver Millenium Serenity, Neo Queen Serenity, and Princess Chibiusa/Rini) on one day, and then we're going as trainers and their Pokemon on another day(I'm gonna be Raichu~!), and finally we're doing a big Alice in Wonderland drove (I get to be the Cheshire cat. Meeeow.) on the final day! XD I'm also working on a costume for Luna (from Sailor Moon) in human form. (just in case one of our many costumes doesn't uh...work out.)

And I'm almost done with the shirt.

I would keep working on it but I'm feeling a bit bleh right now for reasons I don't know.

Me and my friend go every year =D This is our fifth year!

Our first and third year never pulled anything together. u.u But the second year we did the Mad Hatter and Kurai from Angel Sanctuary. Last year we did Mio and Sae from Fatal Frame II, and I did Alice in Wonderland seperately.

This year we're doing Jolteon and Vaporeon from Pokemon. :3 But having lots of difficulties with my dress. It's just not working out the way we intended..but it'll be done in time for Detour!

Edit: After posting this, I got sucked into doing a Left 4 Dead cosplay for this year, too. XD

Not to mention poses everyone! I plan on learning 5 different poses for both my costumes, a few quick poses and a special pose for each.

Tsk, tsk, come on, people! Stop you're slacking! All I need to do for my cosplay is sew on the arms, iron on the design on the arms, figure out how to make my hair right, figure out how to make fake sideburns, make a golden gun that follows AD standards, fix up my saxophone, get a bag/purse, fill my fakies for Tifa, and add a stitch in my headband, and that's IT!




Crud, I should really get started on all this. .______.

kanghead
03-14-2009, 10:02 PM
Wataru, you're my favoirte man-tifa. :DDDD

I think i'm gonna go in my hamster suit on friday, and cosplay on saturday.
Last year I went in jrockish clothes on friday and cosplayed on saturday.

It's just a hassle to make two cosplays with all this other stuff I do.

If I can't find any time over spring break next week to finish my DBSK cosplay, I'll just go as Haruhi from Ouran. :P
I hate school. I hate Superintendant Currie. D:

Wataru
03-15-2009, 02:44 PM
Superintendent Currie? *Runs to check a letter he got from the district office, but can't find it* I think we're in the same school district, Kanghead! xD And I'm glad I can be your favourite Man Tifa. ^^ If you see me, you should totally give me a big hug and mention these forums so I can be all over-excited and have an excuse to scream really loud. <.<

You should work on your cosplays on the weekends. If you set just one day aside and don't sleep in that much, you can get a huge chunk taken out every Saturday or Sunday. And if you have cosplaying friends in the area, invite them over for a cosplay party. =D

I swear I've been working on my skit stuff for months, and all of a sudden I'm not ready!
But wow, I'm so excited.

Let me make a list, so I can feel even more not ready!
Skit:
Il-Palazzo: fit shoulders to cosplayer
paint shoulders
ruffle cloak
fit crown pieces to wig
make sure cosplayer can walk in costume
(he's gonna have to go through doors sideways!)

Excel: trim bangs
finish boot covers

Hyatt: she's done!

Props: THE PIT: make curtains
write instructions on how to set it up, so I don't forget

Friday: Chrome
add belt details
move elastic on eyepatch
add belts to boots

Saturday: Eclair? a pretty dress?
whatever it is, it's DONE.

Sunday: Miku
paint new headset
rig LEDs for headset
buy new black socks

It's lots of little details at the moment... except for IlPalazzo, who is still in pieces.

It's okay.
I probably wouldn't be able to make it any better even if I wanted to. xD
I got -most- of my overalls done. They're strapless. It's hard to keep them on without it, haha.
I need to get elbow pats and paint them red and make ears. D:

kanghead
04-01-2009, 08:43 PM
So. Overalls = still strapless.
But my elbow pads are done, and i have one ear done.
I hate homework.
