I know it's still early to be talking about CN, but since I can't make it to Anime North, it's pretty much all I can think about.

Anyone have ideas who/what they're cosplaying?

I'm going to be doing 3 costumes hopefully. Two will definitely get done, the third's most likely, but depends how handy I am with trying my hands at a 3D feathered prop for the first time...3D-ness makes it that much harder.

I'll be doing Ahiru in her school uniform as part of a giant, enormous Princess Tutu group cosplay, Relyss (aka Norma Jean Prototype P018) from Kaori Yuki's manga "Neji", and if I can get it right, I'll also be doing Jing from King of Bandits Jing with a Kir in Kir Royale form prop.

Right now, what I want the most is to find people who'll cosplay Neji and Batsu with me for the Neji cosplay. If anyone wants to read the manga and check out the awesome character designs/outfits, it's up for download on the omanga site.

Neji and Batsu anyone?

*head implodes* I'm having enough trouble figuring out AN... CNA is way too far away for me. :P

Lol.. I second the so far away notion. I'll probably re-use some of my Anime costumes as well as make some.. but I can't decide on what I'll be until I know how I will have my hair cut (or the lenth) at the time.. that pretty much dictates which costumes of mine I can use.. I'm not really one for wigs

03-30-2004, 09:22 AM
... talk to me about that after Anime North ^_^
Actually, I have a bit of a sense of what I'd like to bring to CN, but my plans tend to change a lot in a short amount of time. I should know what I'm doing for sure closer to August. ^_^

Kisa
03-30-2004, 02:12 PM
Neji eh? ...... >.<

that's actually on my cosplay-to-do list.

But I don't know if I have time for it. Xio is teasing me with horrible horrible plans for when we're not Tutu (heh. Being Craehe for the group XD) and I'm being pursuaded for the sheer tacky factor.

CNA=ghetto con that only gets low-priority costumes I don't have time to do elsewhere, and Neji is something I'd rather save for AN or TT... But we'll see how the horrible-plans go. If not, then Neji could be fun.

03-30-2004, 03:45 PM
If I have time over the summer I'll be making a Scarlet Witch costume (the gypsy/bellydancer one). Haven't been to CN in the last few years, but it's worth it to hang out with people I guess.

Ryukka
03-30-2004, 04:26 PM
hmm.. Sun will probably be comming along, since we have a DW group for CN. I'm thinking about doing Ino... and maybe Suu...? @_@; Too far away

Ochika
03-30-2004, 07:30 PM
I already know what im going. because i got a huge DW cosplay going im gona redo Diao-chan. and lucky lucky for cna we're gona have our Lu Bu for a whole day insted of an hour or two on friday of AN. and im also doing Deedlit from record of lodoss war and Ohri against from Gestalt.....though i might change the last two depending on what i wana do...but im hopeing to maybe do a Demon Diary cosplay ^_^ mmmm Eclipse *drools*

mikcy
03-30-2004, 09:17 PM
For CN, for sure, I'll be making Isshi. If Zhen Ji doesn't go well, I'll re-do it, but if it does, I shall do her other outfit<3. I'm not sure if I'll leave all of gackt for AN05 or make half of it for CN. *shrugs*

um..

yay :D

porbally Toshiya, kaoru and sakito as those are what I'm doing for ota :D

03-31-2004, 12:57 AM
as far as costumes go, i'll probably do a couple re wears, but i'd like to get a FF12, Fran done *grin* if i get time... that's my major issue.. stupid night shift.

Infini
03-31-2004, 03:16 AM
For CN (If I can afford to go) I'll probably just rewear a couple of my costumes since I'd like to save my money for AN costumes. I'll probably wear my Kagura, Chichi and Tukuyomi if I can be bothered to finish it. Maybe I'll just go as one character for the whole thing.

03-31-2004, 04:58 AM
yea , i spend so little effort for cnanime ... LoL last year I went as Midou Ban , and Shinji from evangelion.

Kia
03-31-2004, 09:49 AM
The only reason I would spend money on costumes for CN is b/c I already planned on making them over the summer, so I might as well wear them somewhere after I've finished them. I think I have may three or four half finished costumes stiting around my room. I really should finish them sometime. ^_^

Amy the Yu
03-31-2004, 07:25 PM
CN isn't major on my cosplay list either...still, it's gonna be the only full length TO anime con for me this year, so I wanted to do something and while Ahiru is great, I don't want to spend the entire weekend getting picked on...even though I finally found the perfect wig. (I still can't believe that I found an Ahiru wig. It's such a rarely used style...why would they ever make it in mass?)

I'm actually making Relyss for Otakon as a comfy costume to bum around in.

Jing needs to get worked on after I get back from Otakon since I can't travel without damaging Kir if I make it elsewhere other than at home, and I might not get that done, but I refuse to cosplay Jing without Kir, so I might end up wearing it for Nov TAC (which is even worse, but meh...)

I'm cosplaying Yue Ying from DW while my friend is cosplaying Zhuge Liang. ^^;

CNAnime:
main cosplay: complete Princess Tutu group, i'm doing Edel *^_^*
secondary cosplay: undecided between a couple of possibilities with Kisa... one which is lower-effort and therefore more realistic, and one that's evil and horrible and we'd both probably love to do (and might do later even if not for CNA?) but IMO will probably take too much time and effort for CNA...

Yuna-X2
04-01-2004, 03:19 PM
Teehee... I just had to comment on how funny the title to this thread in peticular looks today... CN Cartoon 04 lumberjacks... I love the lumberjack thing....

04-04-2004, 05:15 PM
maybe, bridget from guilty gear X and others but not sure what others.

Ryukka
04-04-2004, 10:51 PM
waii bridget XD~ He's such an awsome character.. I wanna do him one day =3

Team_kibosh
04-05-2004, 09:54 PM
I'm going as Takashi Tetsumaki from "My favorite Usagi"!! I think he's the best character ever because of his cool samurai skills. I wish I was him sometimes, so no one can see me cry.

Tetsumaki... the one with the eyepatch, right? If we're talking about the same person, then yeah, he roxors!

Sorry to hear that you cry. Is it because of how difficult it was to cosplay during the war?

Team_kibosh
04-05-2004, 10:21 PM
The guy with the eyepatch is blackbeard...he isn't even in "My favorite Usagi"! He was in "Uqero Taco Bell No Shimi"! Tetsumaki was the guy with the pants! You know...the pants with the fly!

I cry because no one understands me...no one but Tetsumaki. When I grow up, I'm gonna marry him!

Coatri
04-12-2004, 03:14 PM
heehee for CNAnime I'm gonna be Terra from FFVI, Mimiru from .hack//SIGN, and the blonde girl (I forget her name) from Disagea :D

heki-chan
04-12-2004, 04:17 PM
I'd probably get around to doing those 3 Naruto characters i've been planning out for some time now ^_^

And also something else ^_~ and finish Nausicaa & Ayame. yah. ^_^

Machiko
04-12-2004, 10:59 PM
hm....probably be going as kos-mos for CNA...lol i don't feel like making more costumes..plus i have to do so much crap in the summer >__< *also glomped with plushies requests* AAAHHHHH the stress!!!

i'll ask my friend to come with me lol....and maybe i'll dress up as Momo with her :D

Infini
04-13-2004, 02:45 AM
I changed my mind again. I'm making Ayane's C6 from DOA2, and making my Kagura costume, since I won't have it done for AN.

Chosuke
04-13-2004, 07:50 AM
Well..
Here are my ROUGH-COPY plans so far:

???? ???? Wedding Yuen
Lu Xun
Anji Mito

Yep. I am very muchly looking forward to Yuen, as he has been calling my name some time now <.<;
As for Lu Xun, my Cosplay partner is doing Lu Bu so I thought I might get in on the DW action. Everyone says I LOOK like him, plus I happen to have about 5 meters of high-quality red silk and Satin lying around xD

And Anji..we have been procrastinating BADLY over them.. They were of supposed to have been done last year xD

Amy the Yu
04-13-2004, 10:00 PM
I just re ordered my cosplays that I'm wearing to AN and CN. So now I'm going to do Mitsuki from Full Moon wo Sagashite (one of her pretty artbook dresses). I've seen a couple of Miroku cosplayers at AN (was roomies with one last year ^_^), but I haven't seen any at CN. Is anyone doing Full Moon cosplay for CN?

xiola
04-14-2004, 02:33 AM
amy: d'you mean miroku from inu yasha or meroko from Full Moon? (pink bunny girl)... coz i know Holly (aka Neko from ctrl-a) is doing Meroko for ANorth with Dave as Takuto, so you'll match them :p

my plans are still all in the gutter so far... i'm working on the super-easy costume right now, hopefully to build up my momentum. and going fabric shopping tommorow for the commission stuff. geh. le sigh.

Amy the Yu
04-14-2004, 01:48 PM
Gah...meant Meroku as in bunny girl from Full Moon. I apparently can't spell. Damn...both characters? Maybe I should do Mitsuki for AN after all. Well, I should probably worry about that after I find out if I can go at all.

Ochika
04-14-2004, 01:56 PM
teheheh so many peoople are doing DW ^_^ gah im so great for starting the group XD me and scoti and our love for lu bu....MY LU BU. heh i hope we can get a bunch more poeple.though we already got....umm...alot x.X my diao-chan costumes comming along nicely ^_^; except for the fact im scared to paint that damn huge design on her top.. x.X meep. but ya besides that costume im not for sure as to what im doing anymore. might redo the gothic bondage gundamwing cosplay im doing for AN...but im not sure x.X so many things i wana do...so little money.i might re-wear ohri saying i spent so much on the damn wig.... but im not sure x.X OH i got an idea XD Demon Diary cosplay!! mmmmm eclipse *drools* MR TOMATO! ;~;... i wounder is anyone would be interested in joining that?

Mage
04-14-2004, 02:54 PM
MegaTokyo cosplay bunnies are eating my soul. That and I still want to cosplay Teneko from OO...arg...maybe I should give in and make CNAnime a webcomic cosplay con. =P Except that I wanted to cosplay another *gasp* FF costume for it. XP Oh well, we'll see. ^_^

mikcy
04-14-2004, 05:04 PM
Uruha + Zhen Ji. oooh ya. :D

Spatx
04-14-2004, 09:30 PM
CN is too far ahead for me to think. I'm still swamped with finishing costumes for AN, and getting enough pictures done to sell in Artists Alley. I'm failing one class, and have to decide which college to go to. *stress*

Well.. I was thinking for CN I might do an original character, but I probably won't get around to him until next year..

Maybe I'll do Guilty Gear XX, Saiyuki, Suikoden III or Chrono Cross. I really can't decide yet, and it really depends on if I lose those extra pounds before summer comes around. :toothy:

Chosuke
04-21-2004, 08:13 AM
Since I'm not going to TT anymore I can afford to be a bit more fancy with my CN costumes xD;
Depending on what my partner in crime does, my costume plans might change.
But whatever costumes I make for CN I'm just going to reuse at Various TACs and whatever, simply because I am lazy + saving money.

My only DEFINATE plans are Wild Rock and Edward Elric.

Ariati
04-21-2004, 11:55 AM
I've planned my CNAnime Costumes long ago... I'm so ahead of myself XD;

I haven't even a clue what to do for this con yet. I'm still trying to get everything done for this con. I haven't finished my first costume yet now you give me this extra stress :waaaah:
:rofl:

Ochika
04-22-2004, 11:54 AM

Amy the Yu
04-30-2004, 08:26 PM
OMG...I just rearranged my AN cosplays AGAIN...so stupid of me...just can't seem to decide.

My bangs are really annoying and I don't want to do a cosplay that requires me to have NO bangs when I finally do have bangs for once, so poor Shien's getting shoved back to CN Anime, and just randomly, I'm gonna cosplay Hanajima Saki from Fruits Basket cause I have a friend who's doing Kyo with his friends who are doing Yuki and Tohru, so I figured might as well...-_-;;;

04-30-2004, 08:59 PM

Wow my first post in quite a while. Hmm, well I only got two ideas in mind really to do:

Kakashi (Naruto)
Kyoshiro Mibu (Samurai Deeper Kyo)

If I am going as Kyoshiro, I will be wearing Demon Eyes Kyo gi outfit since doing the original Kyoshiro's hair will be a major pain. But if I am leaning towards one of them, it be Kyoshiro since his stuff isn't hard to find.

mikcy
05-02-2004, 12:13 AM
For sure I'll be making Shinya and Zhen ji 100% complete for CNA, but I have three choices for another one. I would love to try making Nao or Uruha or Yuana. I have another idea, but shhh I won't tell.*zips mouth*

nyamiko_chan
05-03-2004, 01:16 PM
Well, I'm hopeful to make King Endymion for CNA, on account that I prolly won't make it to Otakon to meet my Serenity :sobs:

I gotta look through all my list to see what else, but I'm pretty sure a Lolita is in there screaming to be made <3! I'd love to make something CLAMPish this time..and pretty tho *O* hehehe..guess I'll see ^.~

YukiPhnx
05-04-2004, 12:21 AM
i'm planning on being Kagome for CN. mainly cuz it's easy and cheap. and i won't have that much money after AN.

05-04-2004, 05:55 PM
I thought I posted in this thread but I guess I haven't. o__O;;

Anyways, my only official plans are Da Qiao from Dynasty Warriors 4. ^_^\\// I was approved by my fashion teacher and I get to make it in class. ^o^! I have two friends who wanna be Xiao Qiao for CNA to go with me. <__<; It's so evil cuz they're both close friends. >o<;; Ah well. =) I'll have one of them thats for sure. XD

Someone be Sun Ce. ;.; Da Qiao wants her hubby. <_< *pokes a certain someone <3* ^_~ lmao

05-04-2004, 08:24 PM
I want to be...

Guan Yu...

This doesn't help that I'm a short, asian female. XD Oh well, I wanted to cosplay some (particularly ugly) male character from Dynasty Warriors or Cao Cao... Just because my friend said I'd be hot, jokes. Because I'd be pimpin', of course!!!
I wonder if I could join that Dynasty Warriors group, then... Hm... I want to see if I could go... Or I could just make the costume because I like Cao Cao that much.
Too bad I can't go as Meng Huo, not big enough.

Ochika
05-04-2004, 10:40 PM
HAI, you can join ^_^ anyones welcome to join if they want....hmmm maybe i should start putting together a list of what chars are taken x.X soooo confusing. anyway if you guys wana ask me about the group at AN, look for me dressed up as diao chan on saturday. or my bondage duo on sun. friday i will be there >_> but i voleentered to do reg. so ya ill be there most of the day ^_^\/

05-04-2004, 10:48 PM
The old DW cosplay thread went bye bye..X_X So you should start a new one Linds. ^^ *pokes*

05-04-2004, 11:08 PM
Speaking of DW, I'm so incredibly tempted to make Zhen Ji DW3 for CNA(I could of sworn I said that already). It's so pretty o.o *stares at a wall* ruki... zhen ji... uruha... knight rikku

Well, at least I don't have to worry about choosing till after AN. *shrugs*

Ochika
05-05-2004, 01:44 PM
tehehe, ya i should bring the thread back to life, everyone seems so into it ^_^ neeee so happies *does normal cute victory dance......thats right, the creepy one scoti told me never to do ever again* i cant wait till an and cna..... i keep changing my planes for cna though, but i always leave diao on sat for the group. i dont know if i should redo ohri, duo, or do a yuna costume or chii, or even deedlit. gah so many choices. all i know is for the masqurade is the DW cause we have planes *snickers * yesss me and scoti have already decided what we are gona do *laughs* but we need alot of people doing DW to join us....mmmmmm man meat

05-10-2004, 05:47 PM
I am not really sure what I'm doing for CN. As I said before that I was doing bridget from guily gear X buyt I'm not exactly sure. I acctually would like to start or join a relyable cosplay group thingy, doing the whole cast of characters in a video game or series or movie. But i dont want to do/be in a group of a series thats been done TONS of times before(sailor moon, final fantasy...ect.)-no affense to anyone who are doing those- I'll probally start my own group...if i cant get people to be in it lol. It would depend on how i feel this summer. if i want to make all the costumes myself. *so confused!* ...i'll think about it

nyamiko_chan
05-10-2004, 06:11 PM
Somene should start a Breath of Fire Group *O*!! I swear I wanted to do something from that once *ponders* I'll have to go look at my links again ^_^;; Let me know what group you decided to start up rox_my_sox <3!!!

Mekou
05-10-2004, 06:15 PM
Breath of Fire! OMG! I'd soooooo join that! =D I'd pick Ursula since I'd get to have a poofy tail and ears. ^o^ <3

Rox: There's the Dynasty Warriors group for CNAnime. =) (The thread says Anime North but it's CNAnime now. ^^;; ) You could check that out if you'd like.

rox_my_sox
05-12-2004, 05:25 PM
i looked into breath of fire and didnt find many pictures of characters. when I figure out what series i want to start a group for i will make a thread announcing it. I will message any one who expresses an intrest in the group idea. ive started a list of people to message. I hope Nyamiko_chan and Mekou_chan dont minde but i put your names on my list due to your prevous posts. I have bin looking at differents series and if any one has any ideas, coments, request, pictures(of series/characters) or seggestions then email me at spedtard_roxers_my_soxers@hotmail.com or feel free to add me on msn to chat with me about it.
I don't know whether I will be making the costumes for the group or whether ill leave it up to the people. It pretty much depends on how much time i have, if the person is able to meet to get fittings...ect. i guess it all depends on the series i choose and who wants a part of it.

05-12-2004, 08:00 PM

maybe other things cause I might end up changing my mind which I hope not.

05-26-2004, 12:14 AM
Partially to bump this up a bit and partially to actually bring back a thread for CN instead of posting on AN threads that are now talking about CN. O.o;;

I'm gonna be cosplaying Mitsuki from Full Moon wo Sagashite (artbook outfit), Tohru in Summer Uniform from Fruits Basket, and Ahiru from Princess Tutu? Anyone part of the Princess Tutu group know if this is still on for CN?

If Ahiru or Mitsuki get pushed off, I'll have a Shien costume from Saiyuki handy and I might be doing something X/1999 as well with a friend.

05-26-2004, 01:35 AM
Attempting to cosplay Ranmaru from Sengoku Musou. The game isn't released in North America yet, so I doubt anyone's heard of it. But it's by Koei, and very similar to Dynasty Warrior games.

So far I'm not doing very well. Can't find a place in Toronto that sells Japanese fabric or kimono, and shopping online would be my last resort.

If anyone knows which character/game I'm talking about, I would be very happy. XD

ForgottenMekrd
05-26-2004, 10:53 AM
Hum...I have no time and/or money to make a new costume for CNA...so I'll be re-using my White Mage Rikku Costume from Anime North. ^^

If I find something really easy I could make, I'll do that...either that or adopt people at CNA. Whichever works. ^^

Amy the Yu
05-26-2004, 03:16 PM
What's CN? can somebody please pm me what it is... :gonk:

CN is short for CN Expo, which is a 3 in 1, 4 in 1 now cause this year it includes CNAnime, Comic Expo, SFX (Sci-fi Expo) and Fear Festival (Horror Expo), con in downtown Toronto at the Metro Convention Center and night events at the Strathecona Hotel and 2 anime movies on a big screen at one of the downtown theatres.

http://www.hobbystar.com/ComicConToronto/CC_Main.asp

It's not as good for the pure anime fans as AN is, but also being a huge Buffy fan, the fact that there's always some Buffy actors or actresses (3 actresses this yr) there to gawk at is good stuff to me.

I also always seem to find better deals on graphic novels in the dealers' room at CN than AN.

mikcy
05-26-2004, 03:57 PM
Akiya(Kagrra)
Zhen Ji(DW4)
Shinya(Dir en grey)

Well, I might not do Shinya if I can find a way to do the wig for Ivy from Soul Calibur 2. I mean, yes, it's good to learn for yourself and I thought maybe I could get those really cheap 5 dollar wigs and practice on those then buy an actual wig. I just don't want to spend more money on a wig. x.x; CNE needs to come, so I don't have to be cheap anymore. o.O;

Those are offical, btw unless.. {insert everything I just said above}

Good stuff. I'm going for Buffy people. Need to make sure my friend goes now since he's got connections with Sunnydale Central people, so I get free autographs.

I want an Emma Caulfield autograph on the Anya and Xander photo that I got Nicolas Brendan to autograph 2 years ago.

Well, I still love Buffy and I'll still be paying homage to the actresses this year cause they rock.

It's hard to make them really well made though. Especially for lazy people.

I'll be making Meroko and Takuto plushies to uh...accentuate my Mitsuki cosplay, and I still need to make Yuki his Ayame snake. I'll have plenty of time to be fiddling with all the sewing though and I'm not dragging a sewing machine down to Phily with me, so not like I'll be working on my other costumes much...except maybe my Tohru summer uniform...

Yeah, Sunnydale Central had a booth in the Dealer's Room at AN this year, did you see it? They were advertising their con and had a bunch of autographs for sale from Harry Groener, J. August Richards, Nick Brendon and some other people. I think their big guest this year is the guy who played Adam..? But I'm not sure.

ETA: Oh yeah, if I go to CN and I have money, I'll either cosplay a human version of Gatomon from Digimon or May from Pokemon. ^^

I have never been there before but I want to go this year, but I wan to know what I'm getting into. lol. Is there an Artist Alley there? Thank you.

I think I noticed the booth a bit, but didn't pay much attention to it. I have all the Buffy/Angel guest autographs from the last two CNs as well as the last two Toronto Treks, so I normally just walk by them without a second glance. It's also a lot more fun to go see them in person and "ooo" and "aaa" before getting autographs. XD I'm such a fangirl...

CN's not that bad if you're not just a fan of one genre. Since it's 3 cons in 1 (4 this year), the section for each genre isn't as big and great as cons specific to just anime or sci-fi or whatever (ie. Anime North and Toronto Trek).

It's not THAT bad though. Just that TO gets lots of cons compared to most cities, so I think us fans are a bit spoiled (which I don't mind =D) and we're used to the biggest and the best.

There's a rather large and full artists' alley there. Lots of sci-fi artists and comic artists on top of anime artists, so once again, the amount for each one is smaller and fewer than single genre cons.

More major downers for CN is that it's Hobbystar, so they're all for profitting for themselves...and tickets are only available at the door, so there's always a huge line for attendees that usually goes around one floor, out the front door and down the street all the way around behind Hardrock Cafe (which thankfully, volunteers like me don't need to wait through).

I actually have pics of my own costumes on my cosplay.com profile (just click on my name and then the link for my gallery).

Got more pics of my cosplays and some other pics I took of other cosplayers that I really liked (although I didn't get pics of all the ones I liked cause I got lazy) and Atsuko Enomoto at my yahoo photos:
photos.yahoo.com/fyrekraquer

Hopefully, I'll actually do some progress pics with the costumes I'm making this summer...normally, I just post finished costume pics after it gets worn. I hate hand sewing...don't want to spend a summer doing it cause I won't have a sewing machine down in Phily. =(

I did Ten Ten from the Gai Team cosplay from Ghettocon back in March.
http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=45048

It's all hand sewn which is why it's not very impressive, but Neji actually has Byakugan veins if you look closely.

I'm not very happy about that costume, but I had the buns...and I mean I got my hair into two perfect doughnut buns. Plus, I had the bangs. I loved my hair and the rest was =P. It was also very cheap to make, so I guess no complaints, but then again, I never spend much on my costumes.

1) Garnet/Dagger from Final Fantasy IX
2) Rinoa from Final Fantasy VIII
3) The ever so overdone Rikku or Yuna from X-2
4) Lina from Slayers Special(manga)

These are merely thoughts, not solid descisions. I don't wanna bake in the sun, but I don't want to be unrecognizable (I want attention damnit!). Any thoughts? :lost:

I think if you like attention (which cosplayer doesn't?...) you should do less overdone characters. FF cosplays have been done to death so much that a lot of people just look at them and go "it's another one of'em" and walk on without a second glance. Even lesser done FF costumes would probably get you more attention.

I'm not a FF fan, but I think I still got some of the terminology right. I think the Beserker "fill in character names" costumes are really nice looking and a well done one is a great achievement and a real attention grabber. Even if there are dozens of other FF cosplayers are walking around you, with one of those, I think the cameras would all be aimed on you and everyone else ignored.

AN05 would be awesome. Who else is your group gonna do?

I'm going to be doing Kotori with my friends who will be doing Kamui and Fuuma...even though I'd make a hell of a better Arashi then I'd be able to pull off Kotori, but I gotta fit in w/ the rest, so that's what it came down to.=/

Upside, I get to make massive wings for Kotori cause I'm not a big fan of hers, so I figure I'd go as "dead angel Kotori" to make the freakin pink dress more recognisable. XD

I was gonna post earlier but the site was having problems and I couldn't log in.

Anyway, for CNAnime, I mentioned some costumes I was interested in, but I am NOT limiting my options to Final Fantasy characters. I just mentioned them cause they are ones that are interesting to me. I don't want to be too descrete a character cause not alot of people like to take pics of costumes they don't recognize, and I'm sorry but as I also mentioned...I LOVE ATTENTION!!! *ahem* So yeah.

A couple nights ago, I had this awsomely vivid dream! It seemed to be based on the .HACK franchise, but with different characters, and I remember almost EXACTLY what my character looked like. So I drew her out(at school). When I woke up from that dream, the first thing I did was write it down, now I hope to continue a story from where the dream left off. It was a wonderful experience.
Now, you must be wondering what that little story has to do with cosplay. Well, I had been complaining to my mummy(mom) that I can't think of who I want to cosplay for CNAnime, well she suggested I cosplay as the character I dreamed as. I think it's a great idea. I absolutely love the character design. MY SUBCONCIOUS(sp?) ROCKS!!! :rockon:

Even though it was the same character, just diff. costume, and basically it uses the same fabric, I've just been planning it for like 8 months, and then I found another pic, which I've decided I'll do that costume for Anime North '05, along with 1 or two more costumes. The costume I'm doing for CNA '04 has a lot of fabric panting involved so I probably will only get that one done. x.o;; But it's going to be a secret as I've mentioned before hehe..Only few people know...IF YOU'RE ONE OF THEM SSHHHH!!!!

Maybe oneday they'll get done but it's onto new things for CNA. I'm redoing parts of my Gippal Costume to wear, as well as making a Dynasty Warriors costume, For my GF I'm doin a Lulu right now.. and our masq. costumes which are gonna remain top secret..

Up to this point, I haven't made any of my costumes(except for the armour on my Midoriko costume and styling my Dejiko wig, those I did). So there is that, and the fact that Garnet's costume looks kind of tricky because it spandex-ish. How will I go about this endevour?

I NEED to find you if you do Kisa. So CUTE!!!! XD

I wish there were more sources for fabric and stuff here in Philadelphia...I'm resorting to Ebay even for costume supplies now cause I don't know where in town I can get any that's convenient. I miss Toronto and the plentiful Wal-marts and Fabriclands.

I have enough material for about 3 EGL outfits now. -_-;; I'll probably wear one or two of those as well for fun. I'm going to be making new costumes on a weekly basis from now until the end of July because I'm joining Drexel University's anime club and I told them that I'm going to come in a new costume each meeting...and I plan to deliver.

I was planning to go as Yuffie from KH, but there've been a few problems, so if I do, I'll have to make the shirt a little longer... :thumbsup: ...eh..Oh well. If not Yuffie, I'm going as Rinoa. I looke more like Rinoa anyway. But we shall see. My friend and I want to go from ppl of the same series but she like anime I don't know of and I like anime she doesn't know of.

Anime North I find is a bit better than CNAnime only because AN is ALL anime. The CNAnime convention is only part of the bigger convention. Things are more expensive, and there aren't as many events. But otherwise, it's a fun place to cosplay and see your con friends!

Yes, I agree, I love to see people cosplay and I love to cosplay too. Would you say there aren't as many Anime cosplayers at CNanime as there are at AN, or is it the same?? Uhh..Things are more expensive? Ohh, dear. LoL

As for my costume, changes, I'm being Rinoa (FF8), I know she's been WaY over done, but considering I already look a lot like her, its pretty simple. I needed a simple costume for CNanime anyway. Besides, for me cosplaying isn't about getting ppl to take your picture, I just like to prance around in my costume! :dance: I hope to see y'all and get some pics! :P, I love taking pictures of cosplayers!! :bigtu:

I played Vicious at AN'04, but most people thought I was Bill (Kill Bill)... which was VERY annoying. >.>

I'd like to group up with some Bebop Cosplayers for CNAX 04. Anyone in?
I'm planning to cosplay as Faye, so I guess I'm in if you want.

I have a suggestion for you Naziel. It's not rude at all, it's a helpful one. :) See, there's an edit button, so you can edit your post. :) It's been told already that people do not like it when you post repeatedly. Just a note too, pleasepleaseplease do not reply to this and turning this into a fight. I'm not saying you would, but just in case, ya know? :) Thank youuu. :bigtu: I hope you can find more cosplayers who are doing Star Ocean. :D

I need to fix up Shinya for CNA. W00t Two Shinya's for CNA. Can't wait for CNA and the DW group.

Ahhhhhhh. I'm not making ANYTHING new for CNA - bliss! I'm going to pull some favourites from the tickle trunk though. I'm hoping to re-curl my Karen wig, so Kasumi Karen from X/1999 will likely be my Friday costume. For Saturday, I'm planning to wear my Eowyn/Shieldmaiden costume - I need to re-do the bodice trim and make a new sword. The sword making part is sketchy, as I am rubbish with artsy work like that. For Sunday, I'll probably wear The Cheat, with newly touched-up spots. I'll be toting my crisper drawer full of goodies, assuming I have time to assemble everything.

Or, if it turns out I need to be at a wedding that weekend, I'll forget the lot of it and bugger off for a weekend in the Kawarthas. :)

I was going to try and make Shiva (Amano style) but I didn't have enough funds to get a bodysuit =(

Instead I've decided to make Rydia !! Load of green and still covered and breathable or summer <3!
And great thing is, it's all sorted out and I'm getting fabric SOON =D schweet!

Good luck everyone else with their costumes!!

I actually have no idea what starching is, but I looked up a topic on Yuzuki's bow on these forums and it said starching XD!!! And we had to ask her art teacher about it ^^;;.

NYAMIKO! I will attack you =). Thank you for being Rydia. You rule. =D

Oselle, I will also attack you. THE CHEAT... is grounded! =O!!!!

Naziel, I think White Mage is doing Sophia. (I looked at her site XD!!!!) Errr... I'm not sure is Sophia's a Star Ocean character o.O;; since I've only seen the anime. ^^ But I think she is. =) And I don't think I'll have to time or the money to make the Rena costume ^^;. My Yue Ying costume will take a long time to do and will cost quite a bit.

Really, don't change your costume based on whether or not you have other people to cosplay with. That shouldn't be why you choose a costume. I can understand the reverse- cosplaying a character because you're part of a group and they need that spot filled....
But don't put so much focus on having other Star Ocean characters. It's a bit of an obscure game, it's not the best RPG out there, and the costumes take a certain taste to really love enough to cosplay. All things considering, I wouldn't expect you to find another SO cosplayer at CN at all- that White Mage is is a great bonus to you.

Cosplay because you like the character, or the outfit, or because you can throw the thing together out of your closet in 5 minutes before leaving. Don't cosplay for attention, or under the assumption that others will know who you are, love you, or have corresponding outfits. You'll have a lot more fun if you're cosplaying for the joy of it, not for some sort of recognition.

Also, no matter how ofetn you post on the board, you won't convince someone to randomly join you in the SO cosplay. :)

Whatever you decide- do it for yourself. See you at con!
:cheers:

Yes, I agree with Elemental! You really should cosplay because you like the character or cause you can throw it together(I never thought of that one, kudos to you!^^) You've posted a lot of threads asking for cosplay groups, maybe you should cosplay a character you like, not just to be in a group but for the sheer joy of being that character, although being a part of a group is fun! Well, good luck on your costume, hopefully you decide who you're going to be and love being it not just for a group.

Wow! Elemental, you're being a Link? I definately have to find you and get some piccys. You shouldn't be too hard to find though right? Considering you're going to be in a group? ^^

Ahh, yeah, my Yuffie costume is going well, but I just got my hair cut, hoping it might look something like Rinoa's...ack. It didn't. Oh well, hopefully in 2 monthes time it will grow back. ^^

Well good luck on your costumes everyone and hope to see you there!!

If you want to be in the masquerade (for once) just ENTER. There are no rules that say you have to be in a group for it, and there are no rules that say your group must be from the same series. If you're attending with friends, why not make up (and PLEASE practice) a skit for the masq. together? If you're going alone, why not put together a sword dance, or a funny rant (pre=record it, you won't be heard if you try to speak) about how your character never gets enough recongition?

Feel free to challange me, but be warned- come to me face on and ask first: I don't to well when people sneak up behind me, and you might end up with a broken arm. And be award I may not be carrying my sword. I'm 3/4 staff at this con, so a fighting photo-op is fine, but I really can't be dueling anyone.

Naziel456
07-03-2004, 11:01 AM
hmmm k when i said i sneak up..... i won't you will see me first walking toward you with my evil grin.....

i no about the masquerade i want to enter with others, i dont want to do a solo skit.... although im really talented with the sword.....

Elemental
07-03-2004, 11:05 AM
You're talented with a sword? Most people can barely handly one. Why not consider doing some sort of sword dance/kata onstage, if you can't find a group? Pick some cool music and wow us with your l33t skills.
And if you're really uncertain about a solo skit, as I said before, ask a friend to join you.
And if that option won't work, come up with a basic idea- "I want to have a swordfight" And post on the boards looking for ANYONE (Not just your anime series) wopuld like to join you in the masq. for a duel.
Good Luck!

Naziel456

ACK!! Elemental! *HUG!!!*

I just had to do that. I love eloquent speaches and you're good at those. ^^ I'm gonna worship you now cause you write so pretty. XD

Back on track now...I finished costume #1, Tohru's summer uniform from Fruits Basket, and will be making costume #2, Luna's human form from Sailormoon, this weekend (since I'm in Philadelphia right now and I get a nice long weekend for 4th of July even though I still celebrated Canada Day and drove the lab nuts w/ my drawing Canada flags on everything).

I'm planning on another 2 costumes, a Mitsuki costume from Full Moon wo Sagashite manga, and a random EGL I decided to make cause I'm overloaded with black tulle. The EGL will take a shitload of work, but I really wanna make it cause I got issues. -_-;;

I'm stupid cause I'll only be wearing 3 out of 4 costumes, but I don't want to not wear any cause I made them anyway and want to give them con time.

Hm...and a question for you guys. Do you think Friday or Sunday is a better day for cosplays? Saturday is #1 hands down, but Friday and Sunday isn't so clear cut...

Sailor moon?! KILL!!!! add the sailor scouts to my death list! hehe!

Bad Naziel. It's not a good idea to attack people's favourite anime, even in jest. They can take it in a not so happy light ^^
Don't forget, without Sailor Moon, anime wouldn't have anywhere near the foothold it does today, and a lot of people who are fans now wouldn't be.
I'm a big Sailor Moon fan myself, though I prefer the villianessess.....

Thank you! I like to think of myself as a rather eloquent speaker online, with decent spelling and grammer to boot^^. Though I do have a nasty side- Scorn tends to appear more on lelola.net's mesage boards and livejournal however. Stupid people REALLY tick me off.

As for cosplay, I tend to costume-ify Friday moreso than Sunday, making Sunday my 'comfort day'. However, there's really little difference between the two days. So choose one and enjoy!

I actually, in all honesty, enjoy CN Anime far better than Anime North. I like the fact that it's so many conventions in one--you meet/see SO many more people. I've been to both AN and CN twice, and I enjoyed CN far more on both occasions. Probably because I like "big and corperate" and don't scoff at it. I also like the location, and adore the fact that it's right in downtown Toronto where EVERYTHING is....and that's why I usually spend most of my time walking around downtown in costume with friends, and go to clubs at night with them in costume (after the CN events are over). Much fun.

Hurrah to CN (esp now that they've added the Horror Convention to the roster)...

HB

I agree Hellbelle =D CNAnime is by far my fave <3
I like all the cons rolled into one and how the dealers room is HUGE and has so much variety!

It's also another con that you can wear a costume other than anime, manga, or video games, and people could recognize you ^_~

Go CNA!! =D

I was considering the volunteering, but to stay for more than 1 day I would have to get a hotel room or something. And getting to the convention would mean fixing my car, and then there's food money, and since I would be in toronto I wouldn't be able to avoid shoppingness. XD I'm so weak.

Any trip to toronto for me costs money, even if I don't end up buying anything. If I lived in the city I would just show up to hang out in the lobby, but it's a little much for me to drive an hour and a half in my death-car to not actually go into the con.

Thanks for the suggestions though! I just wish I lived in/near Toronto...it would make convention stuff MUCH easier.

If you can get to my house (which isn't as far as Toronto) then you can crash with me before the con and you're welcome to stay with me either during the con, or in whatever room I end up getting somewhere. ^_^ It's just an alternative, but we can talk more about that on Saturday. :dance:

Anime fans are always so helpful...cause we got no one else to rely on except each other. All people who help us normally won't help as much once we don our costumes and start talking in Engrish with random pieces of broken Japanese...

Me, I'm going to be cosplaying as Seto Kaiba (from Yu-Gi-Oh!) in his Battle City outfit, just as I did at Anime North. I'm probably going to improve on what I had at AN, though. For example, I'm trying to get some hair colouring stuff to make my hair brown, and I'm also trying to find some tougher material to make new arm bands with. My best friend is going as either Tťa Gardner or Mana (both also from Yu-Gi-Oh!). Man, I can't wait for CN. It'll be fun! :D

YAY!!! One of my CN costumes is done. Second one is at 60% and then just one more.

I'll probably have it all done before the end of the month cause I'm currently plotting out the weekend at Otakon, so I'll most likely be wearing the same costumes for both Otakon and CN.

I working on 2 costumes. Yukimura from manga vol.7, and Yukimura from anime vol. 6 with his weapon. He's a character in Samurai Deeper Kyo. Heh, I really like Yukimura as you can tell. I was him before, but I think I can do a better coat this time.

Ah, Archy! I wanted a pic of you as Seto Kaiba! I would've stopped but I was on a mission. LoL, It was awesome! I hope I see you at CNA!

Squall1882- Ah, I say your Cloud AC costume from the photoshoot! It's awesome! I hope I see you at CNA so I can get a pic!! Oh, btw, what day are you planning to wear your Squall costume? I want a pic of us together when we're Squall and Rinoa! Ohh, I like your g/fs costume too! I'd like a pic with her as well!! Great job!! LoL

As for my costumes, well my Rinoa costume is almost done. I still need to do the wings on the back and my Yuffie costume...umm..I'm still trying to figure out how to do shoecovers... :thumbsup: And I need to finish up the gloves! ^__^ Good luck with your costumes everyone!

You know what's not cool? Wakeing up at 6am, goin to summer school then arriveing home at 2:30, and every now and then having a 3-11pm shift at a covienience store on lottery night. *rocks back and forth nervously* So not to induce further stress unto myself, I am putting off making my costume until August, which is cutting my construction time very short. Grr! I have too much going on! Well, whatever, I'll get through it.

I was gonna cosplay Garnet, but I found some really good tips on how to make an InuYasha costume, so I may do that if fate deals me a good card. A Garnet costume looks too advanced for me (I have no sewing experience..yet). That's not to say it won't happen. I rely on random opportunities, so we'll see. *knock on wood*

That's not too bad. In my grade 12 summer, I did summer school for my OAC English...which isn't all that hard I don't think, but if you take summer school for it and don't stay up til at least 3am doing homework from when you get home, you're not going to get very good marks.

I woke up at 7 am for summer school, got home by about 4 30pm. Started homework at 4 40pm (enough time to take my shoes off, go pee and then grab whatever my mom made for me to eat for the night) and work all the way until 3-5am every day.

On weekends, I worked my two part-time jobs at the swimming pool (lifeguard) and the banquet hall (waitress) for about 15 hours each. (30 hours over Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday)

I found it was the most productive and utterly exhausting time in my life. I love it so much.

The only times I wasn't happy was when I would fall asleep on the bus home and end up leaning my face against a pole or something...always woke up with strange indents on my skin...kinda of embarrassing in public.

Wow that's intense Amy_The_Yu! Makes me feel so...laidback...which I am but more so. ^-^' I would have the time to make a costume this month, but I have no way of getting to fabricland for patterns until August.
But yeah, Cudoss(sp?) to you, that's a lot of work. Especially waitressing, yeesh. My mom is a waitress and I've done some of that myself as well.
I tend to go to bed early on a regular basis, because I don't like sleeping in too much, cause that takes away from time you could spend wisely in your day. I'm normaly in bed by 10:30 ish, except of course the night shift.

Whee off topic ness! :drink: <---Need me more of this.

Drink is good...I'd like a drink to make me loosen up a bit right now...but I'm working in Phily right now...and while in the USA, I'm underage...booo...(currently 19 going on 20 in November)

Phily is good for my style of cosplay making, horrible for conventions.

There's only like 1 small anime con in town (and it's a HUGE city), but there's about 8 blocks downtown called "fabric row" and you guessed it, just about nothing but fabric stores. So cheap too.

I got a pile of satin brocade for a Full Moon wo Sagashite costume from the artbook that I don't know how long it's going to take me cause it's my first try with a pattern. Cost me $10/m at Wal-Mart. WAL-MART and it still cost so much.

I got the same stuff in a different colour (yellow as opposed to beige) for a Human Luna (from Sailormoon Movie) dress and it only cost me $5 canadian/m. That's HALF PRICE.

I'm going to stock up on cosplay materials before I leave at the end of the month.

Oh, and if anyone has anything really specific that they want, but can't seem to find or just can't find it at an affordable price and they're going to the August photoshoot, let me know and I can dig for it when I go to Fabric Row this weekend and see if they have any for super cheap prices. I'm always happy to help other cosplayers w/ upcoming cosplays. ^^ (Just can't be too much stuff cause I only have limited space to pack.)

You're in the US? Neat. Sounds like you're enjoying yourself neh? You got some lucky rabbits with ya I guess. Yay cheap fabric! Wal-Mart is where I normally get my fabric as well. I'm going to need a whole lotta fabric for my InuYasha costume. I showed a pic of him to my mom and she laughed at me. But she does that anyway. LOL.

On a scary note, I just saw my dad split his head open, but hes okay, its just a little gash and he'll be fine, but he scared the hell outta me. But just like him to laugh after only a minute or two after words.

I actually knew what you meant, but I don't drink carbonated stuff anymore cause my stomach can't take the fizz after a term of not drinking any. I don't like beer either actually...and I usually only drink about half a drink til I feel happy and then stop. I hate the taste of alcohol.

Small head injuries are fun, not cause it's good or stuff, but because it looks a hell of a lot worse than it actually is. The head bleeds more than any other part of the body, so it scares people around you. Big head injuries are bad...easily life threatening from blood loss.

I have to say check the $3-4/m section of Fabricland for Inu Yasha cause that thing'll use up a lot of fabric and Wal-Mart may not even have the right stuff and if they do, might be expensive.

I made one of my AN costumes out of nothing but super discount bin items from Wal-Mart (for the fabric for the dress and the silver wings) and Stitches outlet (for all the belts that got butchered).

I made almost all of my Ten Ten costume from Ghettocon (aka MacTac), Miao from Kazemekase Tsukikage Ran and Kanzeon Bosatsu from Saiyuki from Wal-Mart stuff too.

I love that store...and Value Village...best friends of a cheap cosplayer.

Brita_Lee
07-17-2004, 03:46 PM
LOL! So true! I don't know what I would do without Value Village.

Go goody! I might be able to get a friend of mine to make a Tetsaiga (sp?) made for me, and possibly the neclace! Time saver! I have a small plastic katana, but really big swords are really big fun!
:jjacks: Really Big!

My parents went out west for a week, I miss them, ; . ;'

Thanks for the fabric info. Go for the cheepy stuff! Yay loads of fabric wearing in summer weather!

Well, I just looked through all 15 pages of this huge thread :eeek: , and it turns out that nobody has yet said they were doing a Trainer Yuna. It's almost too bad, because I think it's kind of neat when there are doubles. I'm also bringing FFX2 Gunner Yuna with me. Would any con be complete without at least one???? I'm also dressing some friends as: Vincent Valentine and Sakura (the fluffy white dress with red-shoes version). Also dragging my husband, who is as of yet undecided. At this rate, he will end up being Shannon from Scrapped Princess.
Hope to see you all there!

Eee, I just read all 15 pages as well @_@ I wasnít able to make it to AN this year cause my one and only ride sorta cancelled on me >< So hopefully Iíll be going to CN! ^_^ Eeek, my first con. My friends and I want to cosplay, but Iím sure who as of yetÖI know I want to do one of Sakuraís outfits, most likely the pink one she wore in the second movie, if I can find the material for it. Or maybe even Sailor SaturnÖI so want to own that glaive. Whee, good luck to all of you with your oufits! Hopefully Iíll see you there and takes tons oí piccy~! XD

Scrapped Princess...ooo...

I actually haven't watched it yet, and I don't have plans to watch it ATM, but I do love the characters designs.

I'm planning to make Raquel for AN...even though I already have 4 costumes planned for it. -_-;;

I'm dragging a friend of mines into it with me so I can have a Shannon to match.

Too bad they're siblings, so I can't just drag any random friend...and while I'm Chinese (which is very common in TO), I have next to no Chinese friends, so Eric will be dragged into cosplaying Shannon that I'm going to make for him since he's my only male Chinese friend who likes anime.

I got so much fake black hair though, so at least the ponytail part will be easy to make for him. >_<

I know what you mean! We were going to do the pair, but my mister and i look very, very different. He hasn't decided on Shannon yet, though. That is kind of a back up plan if he doesn't make up his mind!!!


I know I want to do one of Sakura?s outfits, most likely the pink one she wore in the second movie

I think that is the one my friend and I are going to make. I thought it was white, but she has just informed me that it is really light pink. Le darn.

Hello people!

I haven't come here for such a long time...how's everyone? Enjoying the finally arrived summer weather? :)

Omg...CNAnime is so nearby. I can't believe it already has been, what, 2 months since AN2004? Wowa. Time flies! And I'm still in university...studying for finals which are coming up in a week or so.... :waaaah:

So yeah...I'm getting off university on Aug 12th...so I have almost no time for my costumes...I'm going to be wearing my costume from AN2004, which was Edward Elric from FMA. I wanted to do Youko from The 12 Kingdoms but I think I'll have to wait til AN2005 for that... I think my sis will be going as Roy Mustang from FMA for CNAnime. She was Liza Hawkeye for AN2004. Hopefuly I'll be done Ed's pants and if possible, automail for CNAnime... We might be planning a FMA get-together or something. Hee hee.

Anyhow...I should go back to studying now... :( I soo want to work on my costume...*sobs*

Well, everyone, enjoy your summer!! :bigtu:

For CNAnime 2004, my b/f and I will be doing a couple cosplay of Gohan and Videl from DBZ in their Saiyaman outfits, complete with helmets and stoopid dance moves and all! :D. The cosplays are enh... about like 40% done at the moment... but not much time left.. EEP -_-;; But anyway, things aren't looking good for getting my helmet done in time. Thankfully, I look muchlies like Videl :P

Though in case things don't work out, we may fall back on our Kenshin and Kaoru cosplays, or jump into our Seifer and Quistis cosplays ^_^. Though it'd be more like to do K+K if Saiyaman doesn't work out.

If there will be any other DBZ cosplayers, please let me know :D!

So now that summer school is outta the way, I can start my costume. Fist things first, I should pick a day to hitch a ride with my mum to her work in Hamilton to get patterns and fabric. I think I'll bring my friend Liah with me...*thinks about the DanceDance Machine at Eastgate* Que he he he...

Hey, props to you, Jo Canadian... The fandom of Bishoujo Senshi is dying a slow and painful death. How sad, ne? I might be cosplaying as Usagi. I used this costume and a Minako costume for AN 04, and I actually dyed my hair for it too lol. But, my mum doesn't want me to dye it again XD... too much dye= $$ and mum mad... Anyways... my point is that I'd like to meet you at CNA! ^-^ Maybe we can do a photo shoot? Tell me what you think. I'll send you a picture if you want, cuz I am too lazy to post it on cosplay.com...

Oh, and i found out today that i can go to CN Anime....or basically i've given in to the temptation...even though i have to save up for a trip and the money's due soon and i still need over a thousand bucks well...fundraising, don't fail me now.

ANYWAY, since this was unexpected and need to save, i'm going to go as InuYasha again...except i'll prolly be on a leash and pulled by some chicks, making yaoi poses for pics, and maybe wear some black eye-liner :cool: so basically look out for the cool IY people :cool: ...i should have a plushie Miroku with me as well. WHOA, that emoticon gave me a great idea! i should be an IY wearing sunglasses! Wheeeeeeee! ha, i'm like that inventor guy that invented stuff...you know...Albert something.

Anyhows, I'm not showing my costume until like a few days before the con. cuz i don't want anyone to do the same thing and i haven't seen someone do the same costume ever....and I've looked all over the internet and etc, so....ya....I don't know why I keep going on....don't....mind..me!

wheeee, i can't wait till CN Anime. it's going to be my second con...and i only have one mission. MORE YAOI SHOTS! woot! oh, and i'd like to meet some people, cause it'll be interesting to see how you guys look like.

Poo make-up. I go just as i look. i'm too lazy to put on a bunch of whatever on my face and doesn't it make you age faster? sometimes i wear black eye-liner but that's pretty much it, unless it's some big occasion.

Songstress Yuna, i can't wait to meet you again:) just look for the InuYasha with the sunglasses and the coolness all around her.

Makeup doesn't make you age faster. As long as you clean your face regularly and don't sleep with the makeup on, it's fine. And you should really consider makeup when cosplaying, because it REALLY improves how you look in photos. What looks fine in the mirror often turns out washed-out and blah in photos coz of the flash.

Too bad you're not going to the photoshoot on the 8th(august) in Mississauga at the Japanese park. We could've met up again there! Oh well I'll hunt you down at CNA!

Hey guess what? I was also planning on going as Inu Yasha! Whee! My main reason for doing it is to do face plants. Que he he he. I'll try and force Zero to cosplay as Miroku again, but it'll be difficult. I'll just have to convince him it'll only be hot outside, and the gentle air conditioned inside will make it all better. But it'll take alot of convincing. I'll just get his girlfriend to bother him. She's good at that, maybe that's why we get along so well, or...maybe she uses her powers on me! Ah! No...Merkd is wonderful. I feel so disoriented today, I woke up at noon. NOON! That's way too late for me. Oh well, Merkd will be at my house today to beat some sense into me, and then go DDR'ing.
