*pouts* I wanna go to Expo, but yet again, I can't make it =P I swear, it's a curse.

What all is everyone wearing??

Ameria
05-28-2002, 04:29 PM

New member alert! ;)

I'm planning on going, if I can get the rest of my cash flow on my side-- but I'm facing the dreaded nemesis of 'hotel arrangements'... a couple friends are getting a little wishy-washy on how many they're going to try cramming into their room.

But, on a brighter note, I might try to piece together an Ashley Winchester outfit (Wild Arms 2nd Ignition) and mayhaps a Rock Howard (Garou: Mark of the Wolves) outfit.

Sadly, as aforementioned, success of travel depends strictly on ... that proverbial 'phat cash'...

i'll be wearing.. probably in this order... Lulu on friday, Carmila of D2K Bloodlust on saturday, and Asuka plug suit on sunday. i can't be the Garnet for Jibrille (gomen nasai.... >_<) because i've decided to make her white gown rather than her normal yellow get-up, and don't forsee me having time to get it finished by the end of July. @_@

maybe i'll sneak my Lady Somairot costume in there at some point.... ^_~

I may actually attend Otakon this year, even though I didn't have fun last year (multiple reasons) and this year will be suicidal since I have San Diego Comic Con the weekend after.. so 2 big cons in a row, that will be something.. :thumbsup: Yet, still, I've been going to Otakon since 1998, so why break the tradition now? hehe :D I always need to compare AX and Otakon each year. And I need to go there to get an album posted here full of pics, cos I'm representin' Cosplay.com and Super Cosplay Flash! :skidude2:

Cosplay? Hmm.. well, if I go, I won't bring too many because there won't be enuf time to change.. But if I did, I'd have just:

Shinji Ikari (Pen-Pen's still hanging in there)
Saitou Hajime :skidude2:
Ohgami Ichirou
Ryosuke Takahashi (look for me racing my RC FC3S all over the BCC) :skidude:

Not totally confirmed yet, but I'll keep ya posted.

I'm a fool that way too... two years in a row Otakon was con-drama-catastrophe, and yet I will give it a try again this year.

Wish me luck.

I'm going, and it may surely be suicide (it's my first con)...but I'm looking forward to it so much I can hardly contain myself! Oh gawd...

Anyway, I'm -trying- to get my Cosplay on, but unfortunately I don't have any ideas for who/what to be (accursed obesity! I'll get you yet!). I've got a thread in Costume Help explaining myself, but basically my friends can't think of a character that a heavyweight like myself would fit well. Curses! If anyone has any help, then please, by all means, HELP!

Anyway, I look forward to meeting people at the con. It should be a blast (we can always hope).

07-07-2002, 02:12 AM
Izam3 here,

Its been three years since I attended Otakon and that was back in 1999 my first con. Finally after three years I'm going back to the con that started my cosplay journey. Everyones costumes sound so cool and I look to have my camera ready to take your pictures. Now let me tell you about my costumes that I look to wear. There will be five total and I hope you will enjoy seeing them while I'm there.

Friday:

Megumi Kurogane: Gate Keepers
Look for a schoolgirl with pigails carrying a book. That will be me.

Urd: Ah! My Goddess OVA
This one is going to be fun and exciting. I have a friend that will be playing Belldandy. Picture ops look to be fun.

Saturday:

Palpu Ranran: Idol Project
I'll be dressed as this character all day and will hopefully be in the Saturday costume contest. Look for a girl wearing red, very long pigtails past her hips and large round rim glasses.

Sunday:

Rabi~En~Rose: Di Gi Charat
In the morning I will be in a group with some of my friends and we have a lot of poses planned.

Otaru Mamiya: Saber Marionette J
If there is anytime left I'll be dressed as Otaru after my Di Gi Charat group. My friend will be Cherry and that will be fun to get pictures with my marionette.

Hope you all will have a safe trip to Otakon, but until then I'll talk to you again soon.

Take care,

Izam3

P.S.: Have any of you seen my dance partner Ni-NA?

Kaitou
07-07-2002, 04:25 PM

Lady
07-08-2002, 01:59 AM
Lady will be the Emeralda in Kaitou's Xenogears group! She might go as Aeris, too, but she still hasn't made up her mind yet.

The really sad thing is I'm already planning my costume(s) for Otakon 2003*eyes swirl*

I was gonna try to get a Yupa costume finished, but blah.. no fabric ;_;

07-17-2002, 10:35 AM
I'm at the point where I already pared down my list of costumes from "completely impossible wishful thinking" to "semi-possible if I stop sleeping" and might just hit "realistic" any time soon... which means I probably will bring ONE costume to Otakon.

;________;

I can see other people seem to be in the same situation as I am, unable to finish all of their costumes in time... cons too close together do that to us I guess. >_<

Since my semester starts in October, I can hit AXNY and Anime Next w/out any problems! :D

Same here. I work so I have a liberal number of vacation days I can use for cons... the only problem with working (and in my case working crazy engineer-hours) is the lack of time to do serious costuming... ;___;

yeah, the job i have is insanity (i get up at 5:15am 5 days a week and work till 3:30 at a way-too-big hospital)
ironically it pays real real well (yay for costume funding) but i lack the time to enjoy the money (and sew a lot)... too tired by the time i get home....


P.S. working alternating weekends stinks... cause of course otakon fell on a working weekend and i have to miss two days of pay... -.-;
BUT i remembered i dont have class on fridays this semester so i dont have to miss any days of class. *huge evil grin*

Sounds EXACTLY like my job. It's DRAINING, so I have the funds to cosplay and con-hop but most of the time I am too tired to really appreciate it.

> P.S. working alternating weekends stinks... cause of course otakon fell on a working weekend and i have to miss two days of pay... -.-;

I have (in theory) alternating Fridays off. I never have the time to take them but these theoretical days off fall RIGHT on Otakon and CN Anime fridays. So, well, for once I will take them!

Heh... I saw Totoro in Japanese class. Raw Japanese, no subs.
We were all thinking, "We have a LOT to learn..."

Very kawaii movie though, I loved it ^_^;

But, back on topic...
I really want to go to Otakon... But if anything, I'd only be able to go for one day. I've never been to a con yet.. :thumbsup:
And, heh, cosplaying... I could easily whip up a costume of my own character.

pookie-kun
07-20-2002, 02:21 AM
Yes, that's where I saw it too Oshi ^^() After 3 years of Japanese class, you'd think I'd be able to at least partially understand -some- things people say in anime.. *SIGH*

Oshi
07-20-2002, 02:24 AM
Yeah but... We saw it near the end of our FIRST year... which is all my HS offered. Luckily my college offers further courses!

pookie-kun
07-20-2002, 02:31 AM
Aw, my HS offered 4 years. But the way the teacher taught (horribly, she didn't even have a teaching degree), I've been told you know about what you know more after completing 2 years of college Japanese (starting from 101 up) than you did after completing 4 years in that class.. bleh.. :p

Ah well, spring of 2003 will see me in college.. I hope ^^ Until then it's work work work though.. and cosplay! .. wheee @.@

Genkiness! I'm going! (As I do every year!) Everyone's costumes sound spiffy!

I'll be going as Sailor Neptune (if I finish her), school girl Momo from Peach Girl and the cover girl Momo from this picture:

I just have to finish her hat and find some gloves. I can't wait! I think I'm a tad obsessed!

Can you still get, like, tickets or passes or whatever, to go for one day? (My job has a stranglehold on my life... I gotta make sure to get one day off... which day?)

EDIT: Nevermind, I got smart and went to the Otakon webpage... I think I'll go on Saturday. At $35, it's gotta be the best day to go. Now, to secure getting off of work... Oh, and I'm gonna do that SSBM tourney. I love that game...

Mara
07-20-2002, 06:21 AM
arrgh! I just got back from a long family vacation. Now I have 5 days to get my costumes together. :( Luckily when I arrived home tonight, my huge pair of white platform shoes (for my Mana from Malice Mizer costume) were waiting in a box on my front porch. But the wigs I ordered weren't, which just adds to my anxiety about being ready on time. grrr.

on Friday I'll be Mana, Gardenia style. Here's a link to 2 pics of what this costume will look like. http://www.inthestarlight.com/gackt.html
on Saturday, (if I can sew realllllly fast and get this done in time, hehe) I'll be dressed as Ichigo from Tokyo Mew Mew.

I'll almost definitely be trekking to Otakon alone this year, so if you see a lone Mana or Ichigo, please stop me and say hi or yell "hey Mara!" or something. :)

pookie-kun
07-20-2002, 07:07 AM
I will do exactly so, Mara :D If you see.. Icchan from Angelic Layer (glasses.. white labcoat.. tie.. o.o) on .. either friday or saturday.. yell out Pookie! :D whee...

At first I was a bit leary about it, seeing as I'm a girl, but then I thought.."What the hey!" And I have to get a shirt and goggles. *____* I can't wait! Anyone staying at the Holiday Inn? :D

Yea yea Holiday Inn! ^______^

I'll be the really short Yohji on Saturday. ^^; Well not -really- short, but short.. for Yohji.. *sweatdrop* I just hope my boots don't wear me down. And I still need to sew white piping onto my vinyl coat.. *mews at the thought of wrecking it* >_<

Rosiel
07-23-2002, 09:49 AM
> And I still need to sew white piping onto my vinyl coat..

Don't sew it on!

Use... I think it's called Elmer's glue... this clear glue in a glass bottle that comes off if you rub it with a finger? As long as you avoid putting it on seams (I learnt THAT the hard way) it will stick piping securely to vinyl/leather and come off without leaving any sort of residue.

Sami
07-23-2002, 11:38 AM
Do you mean rubber cement? I've actually been veeery iffy about sewing on vinyl.. if I did, I'd have to hand stitch it, and it would take forever. I've also been considering hot glue, but the last thing I need is a melted coat.. *wince*

Heeey.. I think I have some rubber cement around here somewhere.. *hopes!* Thanks for the tip! *^___^*

> Do you mean rubber cement?

Yes! Silly me and my tenuous grasp of the English language when it comes to specialized words. Elmer's glue is white glue right?

> onsidering hot glue, but the last thing I need is a melted coat..

Hot glue WILL warp the vinyl AND the trim.
Super glue will MELT the vinyl, spread, and stain the trim.

So just apply rubber cement (not too much so it won't permeate the trim) and it should work. You might need to reapply in spots every time you wear the costume though. (I did it with silver trim on leather and it worked fine)

Sami
07-23-2002, 12:05 PM
I was surprised the Holiday Inn still had rooms open when we looked.. actually, Kellie did all the looking and reserving, so she was more surprised. I think. ^^; But so was I.. *prattles on and on and on*

Ooh, I'm psyched now.. because I wanted to use the coat for other cosplays (perhaps) and now that the trim will come off..

Yeah, Elmer's glue is the white stuff. :D Mmm... paaaste... *drools* XD!!!
