View Full Version : What are your Youmacon 2008 costume plans?

10-04-2008, 12:02 AM
Hey everyone~

Less than a month to go until my personal favorite convention! Hopefully the new hotel will treat us well and everyone going to the con will be respectful to the new hotel :) The new location with the mall across the street should be a huge benefit to Youmacon. The old hotel was great though!

Anywho, what costumes are you planning for Youmacon 2008?

Friday: Nix - Beatmania IIDX
Saturday: Ascot - Magic Knights Rayearth 2
Sunday: MAYBE Ginjinka Luxray - Pokemon (but it really depends how lazy I feel X3)

Four weeks to go~

10-04-2008, 12:46 AM
Thursday - Pj!Chrno (Cosplay Slumber party)
Friday - Suzaku Kururugi (Knight of Seven)/L/Ryuuzaki (Halloween style)
Saturday- "" (Casual/Picture Drama/Knight of Seven)
Sunday- "" (Casual)

10-04-2008, 01:28 AM
Looks like I'm only going to be there from Friday to Saturday afternoon, due to trouble getting time off from work, and Saturday night I'm heading over to catch a Pistons game, so I'm not bringing a whole lot.

Friday: one of my Phoenix Wright costumes, most likely - either Phoenix or Klavier, depending on whether or not my girlfriend can come with me and be Edgeworth.
Friday night: If all goes as planned, I'll have a "scary" costume for Halloween night. Been working on it sporadically the last few weeks and it's almost done. ;)
Saturday: Prince Edward, since the Final Fantasy photoshoot appears to be Saturday

If things wind up in such a way that I'll be there overnight Saturday into Sunday, I'll bring manga-version Kenshin for Sunday, I think. Or if I get there Thursday, I might do PJ-version Phoenix Wright for the slumber party, and wear Kenshin Friday.

(This is only my second Youmacon, so I'm not familiar with even the old hotel, let alone the new hotel. Should be interesting!)

I can't stress enough to be careful at the mall. The mall is notorious for gang violence and muggings, hence the curfew. I can't imagine us dressed as anime characters will have a good reception either. I just want to remind everyone to keep this in mind.

10-07-2008, 09:27 PM
Remember that groups are the best way i have spoke to the local police. Being a member of the DEA they were very nice and told me that they would keep an eye out for the con people. Dont be too worried however becareful.

how about a Vicious? >D

10-22-2008, 12:02 PM
I'm only able to go on Saturday this year with the first day of the con falling on Halloween (I need to scare/traumatize the youths that stumble up my walkway for candy ;D they've gotta earn their treats!) and having a massive Psyche test on Monday (Sunday=studying!)

But I'm going to be there practically all day Saturday as Rukia Kuchiki from Bleach, in the opening dress I made last year but never got pictures of :) hope to see you all there ^_^

10-22-2008, 03:44 PM

10-23-2008, 07:43 PM
First Youmacon, 9th con I will actually make it to this year, but not the last one of the year for me. I am supposed to crossplay 3 of the 4 days, but...., makeup, yeah, makeup. That is a problem for me. I would probably either poke my eye or look like a clown if I attempt it on my own. Maybe both.

I really need a generic ninja costume.
