10-23-2008, 12:52 PM
Ready guys? Everyone finished everything they need to?

For once I'm not rushing around at the last minute. I have a few minor tweaks I need to make to outfits, but nothing big!

Only one week to go!

I just have to finish up a few touches on my Samurai RIkku costume and sword, then I am finished!!

I got nothing new to show at this con so I'm going straight to packing with 2-3 previously worn cosplays. I'm pretty excited. I'll have my camcorder ready to record alot of things so look out! You might end up on YouTube doing random stuff. XD

10-23-2008, 04:51 PM
yay random youtube stuff!!! The Joker and Harley are in XD

I can't believe Youmacon is a week away...this is really...bizzar:P

I have gotten a jacket done for a cosplay...and it was half done about 2 years ago when I randomly made it for something else.

Hope to hear of people with more progress done then I following the next few days up to con :P

I'm SUPER excited!! I got a few things I have to finish up, but other than that...I'm just waiting with anticipation!! :D

10-23-2008, 08:27 PM
Almost set here. Got perhaps one thing to finish but really I'll probably just be running around doing staff photography again. Sure I'll be wearing Link at some point but I don't know just when yet.

Can't believe it's only a week away now!!

Just about ready - I have tonight and tomorrow night off, and that should be more than enough time to put the one final detail on my "secret" Halloween night cosplay and sew the big yellow "P" on college!Phoenix's sweater. (Sadly, my shoes for him are not going to be completely accurate due to not being able to find blue shoes with white stripes all the way across them, and not having time to make them from scratch just yet - but I can at least stick the letters to some black shoes I have and make it clear I made an effort. XD)

I am soooooo excited!! too bad im supposed to work for most of it. Oh well atleast im going to be there.

10-24-2008, 01:44 AM

I just got to pretty much gather everything and then stuff it in a suitcase. This trip will bring Cissnei which debuted at AWA, a 'PJ' Turk Vincent (with a little fun twist which you'll see at the pj party...XD), Nel Tu (child form) and maybe Zexion.
Just gotta fix some damage to Nel's mask, but thats nothing.
Of course may also pack some stuff to start a project I want to work on...a 'Youma Quilt' which I will be doing entirely by hand as far as sewing. So even though I already get the shirt with my reg level, I'll buy another '08 one for the quilt project...

I don't have too much to do before the con, just some wig checks to make sure the styling is still ok and a few spot checks on my costumes to make sure they aren't dirty or need minor repair. I haven't really touched anything since Otakon though so everything should be in order.

10-25-2008, 12:38 AM
I'm just about done, im pretty excited; the location is ace.

10-25-2008, 12:10 PM
I have PLENTY of things to do before Friday rolls around. Why college, why do you make it so difficult to cosplay?

The weather is currently looking good for the weekend: http://www.weather.com/weather/weekend/USMI0220?from=36hr_topnav_undeclared (I hope that link works XD) Let's hope for the best!

10-28-2008, 06:33 PM
I'm touching up my Ayame coat and maybe making a bag to carry around, but I'm good aside from that. VERY EXCITED WHO ELSE?

10-28-2008, 07:24 PM
Argh! I *thought* I was done as I was planning to wear a costume I made a while ago...but when I tried it on last night it was way too big and then everything else for it fell apart too (not literally, but I realized how uncomfortable the boots were and I just haven't felt like dealing with wigs lately either) :/ argh! Now I have to try and find a relatively common store bought piece and wear my back up costume of Lydia Deetz from the Beetlejuice Cartoon.

Ill be there Thursday, but leaving to go to a coffee shop to see my friend sing. Everyone's invited.

10-30-2008, 07:31 AM
It is now Thursday, and do you know when Youmacon is?

That's right folks! Youmacon is upon us!

I believe tonight there is some Youmaction happening at the Hyatt, and then tomorrow...oh yes, tomorrow folks! is Youmacon in full swing!

Hope to see you all there, in costume and out, and I hope we all have a splendid time!


P.S - Make sure to post feedback about Youmacon on the Youmacon forums! Your input helps form the convention every year, making it better and better!

Bah, I was going to head over tonight, but I had to work overnight and the stress is getting to me, so I figure I'll show up tomorrow morning. I don't mind standing in lines, as long as I have my DS. ;)

...Or else I'll show up at like 1am or something tonight for the tail end of the cosplay slumber party, depending on when I sleep. I'm ready to go now, except for the part where driving two hours after being up for 20 isn't a good idea.

10-30-2008, 10:23 PM
omg, Kero, you'll be there? It's been forever since I last saw you!

10-31-2008, 05:56 AM
It is now Friday. Do you know if your costume is done?

Answer: I know mine isn't ^.^ Woot woot! :P

Hope to see everyone tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday for fun filled weekend of Youmacon goodness! The event is upon us, and it's halloween too! Yay!

Almost through the line! That will teach me to not preregister. I got here yesterday, but I forgot to preregister like the others staying with me in the room.
