08-20-2004, 01:54 PM
Okies! Well, I guess there ish gonna be a Galaxy Angel cosplay group at Ohayocon~ ^^ I had started planning a Mint costume long ago~ then KonekoMiyabi mencioned that she was gonna try Forte~ Yay! so now I'ma gonna finish what I started! and I hear some others are interested in the Galaxy Angel cosplay too~? it would be cool to get a compleat group together! and do other planning and such {like what day we'd be doing these costumes and such} Alright! ^-^ Yay for Galaxy Angelness -nyo!

08-20-2004, 01:58 PM
nyu yay nyu!! Tee hee ^____^ I shall plan to cosplay Vanilla for Ohayocon nyu another to add to my list nyu lol XD yay! *ish excited*

08-20-2004, 11:29 PM
I think I've decided to do Ranpha! I'm excited for another group cosplay! Too bad we don't have a Milfuelle o__O Though if someone else wants to do Ranpha and no one wants to do Milfuelle I could probably be easily convinced to change :)

08-21-2004, 10:25 AM
hmm. . .I dunno would Yunie want to be Milfuelle? or Ranpha? Im not shure who she mentioned. .~_~ Dejiko probably knows

08-21-2004, 11:39 AM
I know she was fond of Ranpha and Vanilla ^^;; but I dun know, she might be up for Milfulle?~ hopefully we'll all get together tonight and figure it out ^^;;

08-22-2004, 08:12 PM
Yay! ^_^ I'm so excited! I get to run around with a riding crop and I might make extra large weaponry to carry around!

08-23-2004, 11:40 AM
XD!! hehe, yay!! what's forte w/out her huge weaponry? XD hahhaha!! and I started My Mint dress last night, yay!! ^^ .. . ..so~ do we know what days, times ect we're gonna do this for -nyo? ^^

08-24-2004, 06:14 AM
errrr...I haven't thought that far ahead yet...lol

08-25-2004, 12:24 PM
hah, that's fine XD also, olong the lines of the costumes themselves~ does anyone know what to use for the red jems that almost all the angels have? {didn't see one on Ranpha, but I know all the others have em, mines on my bow ^^;} but I'm not sure what to use, does anyone else have an idea?

08-25-2004, 05:04 PM
<growls> Didn't see any on Ranpha? She has three! On her arm bands and her garter thing....grrr....grr I say
Too far ahead for me to think of....
But since we're asking costume questions, any clue on how to do her hair things?

It's kinda far ahead to think of when we'll wear the costumes hmm? I have several costumes to make before then! I'm excited though! We just need a Milfuelle!

08-25-2004, 09:42 PM
*looks up piccies* oh yeah, Ranpha does have em! ^^;; heh~ I didn't study her toooo closely, since hers isn't in the same place as everyone elses~.. . .and maybe you can use baby raddles? XD or those maracha things? I'm not sure ^^;; *will think about it*

09-01-2004, 07:14 PM
I'd use clear fish rocks and paint the backs of them red and then use Sculpey to do the edges and the backs....
It's what I used on all the gems for the Oh My Goddess costumes my cousins and I did at Ikasucon.

09-07-2004, 11:36 PM
I wonder how on *earth* I'm gonna make/buy a monacle that Forte wears on her left eye? And how to keep it there? Ack! I'll have to glue the thing to my face!
I think it's time I looked up some tutorials on making extra large weaponry too!

09-11-2004, 02:13 PM
heheh, yeah ^^ the monical might be an issue ^^;; any ides yet for that? and as for the jem things, I did look into the fish rock thing, and that does seem like it'd be a good idea~ the only problem I'm having ish I can't find any clear or red~ so I was thinking, maybe painting a different colored one with red nailpolish? ^^;; it'll still be shiney~ ... and also, I've never worked with Sculpey before, ish it hard {or expencive? ^^;; } and you're looking into big weaponry? XD Oh! I wish I had an interesting prop! ^^

09-13-2004, 04:29 PM
Sculpey is easy and it's relatively cheap...it's like using Play-Doh! ^_^ The best places to get a good variety of colors is a place like Hobby Lobby.
The nail polish is a good idea since to make it even shinier you can get a clear topcoat. I'm surprised you can't find clear fish rocks! I found tons of those at Jo-Anne's fabrics. I have some big ones left over from my Oh My Goddess costumes. I'd be happy to send them to you if you wouldn't mind giving out a sending addy.
As for my monacle....I have no clue >_<. I'm thinking of just finding a round lens from a pair if fake glasses and rimming it with wire and using eyelash glue to keep it on there!

09-16-2004, 03:09 PM
OH! and I found a site that actually sells the gold shoulder pads(called epaulettes) with the fringe on them that most of the Galaxy Angels have on their jackets:

If anyone is pressed for time when it comes to making them (and they looked kinda hard) you can always nab them here!

09-26-2004, 09:47 PM
Dejiko! Guess what?
You're in the October issue of Animerica magazine for the Ikasucon cosplay! And...so are a lot of people that I'd seen/know!

09-28-2004, 10:16 PM
*squeeks* YAY -NYO!!! MUST CHECK!!!! EEEEH!!!!!!! -NYOO!!!! *all happiful* sorry, I'll calm down now ^^;;' hehehhehehe sorry I haven't responded in soooooooooooo long x_x; but yeah!! back to the Gem thing, that might be cool ^^ . . if you've still got extra that is ^^;; and the site for the epaulettes Rocks!! {never knew what they were called ^^;; } and, and and, I've been meaning to ask, have you found anything for your monical yet? I was gonna say, I dun know if this'll help you, but at my store, they have these sunglasses that are clear lenses! {dun know how they block sun with clear leanses~ but, hey} ^^;; so yeah! I figured, maybe you can pop lenses out, and maybe try working with those? ^^;; I dun know~ but ish a sugestion! ^^ WHEE!!! Must Buy Magazinnnnnee!!!! yayness -nyo!!!!!! X3

09-29-2004, 04:32 PM
oooh no! I haven't found my monacle yet! They were supposed to get some in down here last week but the didn't. *gripe* So if you could see how much those sunglasses are and if I send you the cash or check could you send them to me? I'll have to have a little time to add the wire and dangly thing to it!
And I have no problem sending you my extra fishie rocks! lol Do you need large ones or small ones? I think I have the big ones left. My Mom used all the little ones in a flower arrangement she made (and SOLD it before I could rescue some of the rocks).

09-30-2004, 02:00 AM
Damn, I was hoping to be the first America Forte. Ah well, you must post some pictures when it's all done!

09-30-2004, 02:44 PM
Will do Tia! ^_^
I'd like to see your Forte when you're done too!

09-30-2004, 02:53 PM
Sure thing. I think we are the only Fortes I know of. I don't know if there is anybody else in America cosplaying her. I'll be debuting mine at Metrocon III. Possibly I'll have some pics before then, depending on whether I'm Roy and Amy's human slave this year again or not.

10-01-2004, 11:11 AM
ha ha! I haven't heard of anyone doing Galaxy Angel at a con period! I mostly wanted to do Forte because I could easily pass as her. We're both redheads! :-)

10-02-2004, 11:16 AM
Hi there ^^ heh~ Yeah, I also haven't seen much in the way of Galaxy Angel cosplay either, that's why I wanted to do mint before ^^:; {even though I've seen a few of her already ^^;; } but yeah! I've always wanted to see how a Forte cosplayer would creat such an.. .. .interesting outfit~ deciently ^^; hehe~~ ^^ this should all be fun! I'm looking forward to seeing both of yours ^^ and Oh~ about those glasses, I work at Dollar Tree, so they're only a dollar! Believe it!! XD so yeah! I pick up a pair of em for you~ now, do you want me to just send you the glasses as a whole, or do you want me to try and experiment with one of the lenses for you? either way ish fine ^^ and I think I just need one bigger stone~ but I should check if our Vanilla needs any {I think she's suposed to have 2 gems? dunno~} ^^;; if you have a few extra to send, that'd be great ^^; but yeah! we can just exchange ^^ glasses for fishie rocks ~nyo ^^ and we can exchange addys though a pm ^^; Whee!! I should get working on my costume again~ I haven't done a whole lot on it for a while.. but I got my blue dress done at least ^^; heh~~ So yeah!! *does a happy dance* ^^ this ish gonna be all awesomeness -nyo!

10-03-2004, 12:24 PM
I've seen a lot of good and sub-par GA cosplay lately. There was a killer Mint at JACON this year. I hope my jacket looks that good *.* Ah, I always wanted to be a redhead. *is blonde* I have to wig no matter what, though. She's got all those weird layers and angles going on with her hair. Actually, the only Angel I've never seen done before is Forte. But the only one I've seen done well is Mint.

10-03-2004, 07:45 PM
If it is not too late and not a problem.. I would really like to go as Ranpha Franboise if I have time and the money, but since I am grounded and have other costumes dunno... but it will be winter so it wont be much of a problem with having time.. but would anyone have a problem with that? I wanted to do her barmaid outfit but I dunno how to get clear small almost baby floating divices on my arms and waist...

10-04-2004, 01:51 PM
Sounds great Dejiko! You can actually e-mail me or AIM me (that would be easier)
And you don't have to work on my monacle at all...I'll mess with it because I have a feeling it would be a pain in the butt...lol
But yes! I have around five or six big fish rocks left over from my other costumes that I can send your way. They're kind of heavy so you'll have to find a way to compensate for the weight so they don't pull down on the costume.
I haven't even started on Forte yet. (I'm still working on Inuyasha for Sugoicon.) BUT! I did find a hat that I can use for her and it's big enough around the head to still fit when I have my wig on.

10-28-2004, 04:12 PM
Oh, I think I may have finally bribed someone into going as our Milfieulle. (or however you spell it) You'll never guess who it is either.....my boyfriend! hahahaha! He owes me a BIG favor and I've called him out on it and he knows he can't back down gracefully! Mwah-ha-ha! *is evil*
Ironically he'll make a cute Milfieulle. They're about the same size! ^_^

10-29-2004, 05:48 AM
Hahahaha. That's freaking awesome. Yeah. My boyfriend would kill me if I did anything like that. We're still arguing about a Jrock kilt idea.....

11-06-2004, 11:21 PM
Oh my X3 a man-milfi? hehe, oh dear~ sounds interesting ^^! and yesh!! {I'm soo bad with writing in a timely manner.. x_x;;.. sorry~ I'll try to check more regularly~ x_x;;} but yeah! I still have those glasses if you're interested ^^;; { sorry~} and, yeah, if so, we can use email or messanger to swap addys'? ^^;; Oh, I really need to start back up on my Mint outfit again ^^;; *been slacking alittle too much on everything* ^^;;; ;;

11-07-2004, 11:17 AM
Just so you guys know: I've gotten a Ranpha and Mint to meet up at Otakon, and I'm still working on a Vanilla and Milfy. I've got people who can do it, but it's mostly me being unsure about them having the costumes ready and being able to make the con. Are you guys gonna be at Otakon? We can always use more Angels...

11-07-2004, 03:30 PM
Oh Dejiko, you think you've been slacking? I haven't started on Ranpha at all. I will still be doing it of course....just need to wait until I can actually by fabric and the like at home.... There is nothing around here in the middle of Amish country... <cries>

11-28-2004, 08:44 PM
Out of curiosity...what day of Ohayocon did you guys plan on doing this for? At some point in time I have to do the Inuyasha photoshoot but I think aside from that I don't have other things planned.
And also....what kind of fabric were you making yours out of? I was thinking of making Forte's coat out of twill and the dress out of t-shirt knit (it's stretchy and comfy). Does that sound like it'll work okay?

11-28-2004, 09:41 PM
I'm making the coat out of 2-way stretch vinyl and the dress out of stretch lycra. I actually hadn't thought to use t-shirt cotton, though, that's a good choice. We've got some that we picked up for a Miroku commission that might work. I still don't know about those brown/maroon circles she's got on her jacket. I can't find the exact color in vinyl and I don't know what to use. Maybe I could paint on white vinyl? Or should I use a different material? I have some white vinyl left over from the Alucard hat that I could do a test on. Maybe I'll try that.

11-29-2004, 01:32 PM
I'm primarly using broadcloth and bedsheets ^^;; {So, pretty much what my Dejiko outfit is made out of~ X3 and for the trim on the coat thing, I have this gold shimery bias tape stuff ^^;; {The code on the bottom of the little pack ish GOLD 046} but it's entirely up to you on what you want to use, but I thought a slight bit-o-shimmer wouldn't hurt anything, and I thought it might help it some ^^;; heh, I dun know... but Sam/Vanilla also though that trim would look good too. .. I didn't sew it on yet, so if you want to check into it, and tell me what you think?

And I'm not sure what day~ maybe Saturday or Sunday? .. . ^^;; I always have terrible luck with getting to cons at a decient time on fridays {no matter how early I leave for them x_x; } but yeah, what do you all think? ^^

11-29-2004, 01:39 PM

At least you guys all have your costumes started! As decided at Sugoicon, I'm no longer doing Ranpha but Milfeulle, so total change of plans there. (Of course....it's not like I had anything done for Ranpha anyways) I'm sure I'll be sewing like crazy as soon as I get home from college for winter break. Oh well, all of my costumes get finished the morning of the con anyways....

I'm up for just about any day too....As I usually go with Tracy I'll probably have a problem on Friday myself but oh well....

Oh and as for Otakon I don't know.... Tracy and I went this past summer, but neither of us made the decision until very late.... But if I do go, I'll be sure to bring Milfeulle!

I am getting very excited about this group!

11-29-2004, 02:31 PM
Where is Otakon anyways? If I can catch a ride and if I have the funds I'd be more than happy to go.
I think I'll go ahead and use twill for my coat but if I can't find any that's decently priced I'll go with broadcloth. I'll use the same gold trim as you guys so we can have a more of a uniform appearance.
Saturday or Sunday sounds good to me. I think the Inuyasha photoshoot is gonna be on Friday so that leaves me in the clear. Were you guys planning on competing with these or doing a skit or just a photoshoot?
Don't feel bad Kim! I haven't started on any of my actual costume yet either! I just happen to have an old black vinyl corset leftover from a Catwoman costume that I'm going to tweak with and I have my hat and monacle and I plan on getting my wig today! And that's all I have! I need to find a good referance for the design on Forte's coat so i can get the proportions of the design right too....GAH! Too much to do!!

11-29-2004, 02:45 PM
Where did you get your hat? I was told to check fetish shops, but I don't know how that'll pan out. Otakon: http://www.otakon.com I'll most likely only be there saturday, though, since I will still be in the middle of my summer research. =/

11-29-2004, 06:15 PM
I found mine at a Halloween store that happened to pop up in Lancaster. It was just one of those temporary ones though. :-(
It was actually a cop hat...I just took off the vinyl belt and gold buttons off of the front of it and it was a plain black hat that I'm going to add the white part to.
There's a costume shop here in Athens called Banana Road (weirdest name ever) that might carry one that'll work. I'm going there tomorrow so I'll check it out for you!
Otakon is in Maryland?! That's soooo far from me that I doubt I'd be able to go unless I caught a ride and made rooming arrangements.

11-30-2004, 08:28 AM
That's okay. One of these years I want to make it to Ohayocon, anyways. I am so jealous about Steve Conte being there! I will check the local good costume shop around here too. I remember them having some police hats.

11-30-2004, 10:39 AM
KonekoMiyabi... Otakon is in Baltimore in the middle of summer. Tracy, Kim, Yunie, Josh and I went. Next year if everyone plans on going again, we can carpool down or something. It's a bit of a trip... but it's worth it (well not this past year anyway ><).

I would join the group... but I have sooo much work to do with Psychicer Yuna, commissions, and also getting my Usada wig into pigtails... all of that outside of work, which I'll be doing a lot over Christmas. So I doubt I'll have time to make another costume.

11-30-2004, 10:55 AM
It's cool. I plan on doing a couple other groups (possibly having us all do another version of their costumes). I really want to do pirate Forte, so it'd be cool if I had a whole group that did that for some con. That's just an idea, though. They also had these Cirque de Soliel kinda costumes. Poofy skirts own me.

11-30-2004, 02:33 PM
Oh yay Bobbi! ^_^ If you guys don't mind carting my butt with you I'd LOVE to go! Thanks for the offer! ^_^

11-30-2004, 02:46 PM
Oh, you guys live near each other? Awesome ^_^ I'll definitely be there saturday. I was hoping for the whole weekend, but I have summer research so it's tricky.

12-03-2004, 12:59 PM
oh, we might have another member, I dun think he's on cosplay.com yet, but Yunie/new-Ranpha, her boyfriend agreed to do Lester {from the Manga}

and if I make it to the next Otakon, I'd probably be bringing Mint with me also ^^ whee~

Oh, quick question! do you think I should line the inside of the coat thing with lineing, so it will slide {and not stick funny} when put on over the dress, or leave it as just broadcloth? ^^;;

and, oh, I have the little figurine set things and I can take piccies of them at different angels, if you need to see what the backs, sides, ect look like for you characer ^^

12-03-2004, 02:23 PM
Hmm....I'm probably going to line mine anyways because it seems like that's all I have on for a top and broadcloth (which I'll probably be using) is pretty thin..... So I suppose it doesn't matter, if you want to, then go for it :)

I would love to have some shots of the Milfeulle figure. I've only seen like two episodes of Galaxy Angel <wince> so the more help the better. On that note....hehe anyone have any Galaxy Angel I can watch? Maybe I can borrow some when we have our holiday get together Tracy?

12-03-2004, 04:26 PM
yeah, I have have a few dvd's ^^ if I woulda thought about it, I woulda brought em to Sugoi ^^;; .. . but yeah, if I make it to the christmas get together thing {which probably will}, I'll bring em to that ^^ and Let me find that figure tonight and take some shots with my digi cam -nyo X3 but yeah~ I think I might have some good screenshots for you too ^^ I'll look into that~

12-05-2004, 08:26 PM
Ooooh! A back shot of Forte's coat would be soooo helpful right now Dejiko!
I bought my fabric this weekend and I finished my Hikari costume and finished a Kuu one as well. Yay for productivity! ^_^

12-08-2004, 10:05 AM
Hey guys!! What do you think about getting a photoshoot with Admin for Galaxy Angels? He doesn't do more than 3 at once, but if we buy two photoshoots back to back, we can have a huge time and do a group. If it's the five of us (Is Yunie's bf coming tracy?) we can buy a 3 person and a 2 person shoot, and it'll be $75 overall, but that's only $15 per person and that's not bad at all!! I really want to do this, what do you guys think? Admin's pictures photoshoots are so nice, I think it's a great opportunity.

12-15-2004, 07:55 PM
Okies, so we are doing the photoshoot thing then? and also, I finally have those pictures of the figures~ {I couldn't find Forte till today ^^;; sorry~ } but here you go, I hope they help ya ^^

here's the forte one ^^

and the Milfy one

12-15-2004, 08:25 PM
Thanks for the pictures Tracy!

Yeah, I got the photoshoots for us. They're scheduled from 3:30-4:30. Everyone owes me about $13. I got the shoots for 6 people, supposing that Yunie's bf will be joining us. If he ends up not coming we just need to let Admin know.

12-15-2004, 11:49 PM
if you need a better picture of the back of her jacket, I can pop her head off and take pictures X3

12-16-2004, 12:03 AM
As....creepy as that sounds, I think that would help. Pictures of the back of her jacket are sorely needed. Wow....that is really creepy. BTW, did you get my pm? Thanks dear!

12-16-2004, 03:38 PM
So that's 3:30-4:30 on Saturday?
And thank you sooo much for the pics of the back of Forte's jacket! That was really helpful! I didn't know she had the stripe down the back of it!
So far I've got the wig cut in the right shape and now I just have to add some colored hair spray stuff to make it a darker orangy-red. I'll probably start on the dress tomorrow!
Oh! also! The gems that are on all of the outfits....how about I just make them for whoever needs them? (since I hadn't gotten a chance to send out the fish rocks to Tracy....I can't find the darn things! Mom likes to stash my stuff where I can't find it)

12-16-2004, 05:04 PM
Yup, our photoshoot is 3:30-4:30.

As for the gems, that would be great. I believe I only need one for Milfeulle. Thanks!!

12-17-2004, 01:04 AM
I didn't see much of Galaxy Angels... but is there any relatively simple costumes that I could throw together in a small amount of time? If I remember correctly Milfie has a casual outfit, but I don't remember what it looks like. I know I won't be able to join in on the photo shoot but I can probably wear it around with everyone for awhile. =3 That all depends on how soon I can finish my Psychicer costume.

12-20-2004, 12:17 PM
I'm not sure about any other costumes, I haven't had much of a chance to watch it anytime reciently, and I still have another DVD that I have yet to watch ^^;;;

And also, are we doing these costumes for competition, or a skit or anything? Just wondering~ :confused:

12-20-2004, 05:37 PM
I was wondering about the skit/competition thing myself.... I could do it for the cosplay contest but after that I have to change back into my Inuyasha costume so my poor boyfriend won't be all alone and I was going to wear it for the dance...lol

And I actually have a bunch of red jewels trimmed in gold Sculpey already made that I used for my cousin's Skuld costume that I can pass out!

12-20-2004, 06:29 PM
Milfie actually has a really pretty pink dress that she wears in either the third or fourth dvd. I can take a few screen caps of it if you want me to. It was a hilarious episode.

12-22-2004, 09:10 PM
Oh, I made little icons for everyone in the Galaxy Angel group (all of the angels anyways!) so just go here:

Find who you are, and right click it and save it to your computer and you can add it to your signiture, keep it for the hell of it or whatever you want! It's your icon!

I found the sprite images at a now defunct Galaxy Angels fan site so I took the liberty of *ahem* borrowing them. They were so cute I couldn't resist.....

12-29-2004, 01:36 AM
I cosplayed as Vanilla, and Moon Goddess Shatoyan... Ive sold each one on E-bay after making them because i don't like re-wearing costumes.. Plus I get around 200 to 300 per costume... I was in the Anime-Insider Magasine for best dressed in my Vanilla costume at A-kon... It was a blast... I want to do a forte costume... But it seems that the straps on her chest will be hard to do. If you both could give me some pointers I would be most grateful.

12-30-2004, 10:44 AM
Hee Hee Im still alive x_x I haven't posted in this forum in a really long time sorry. ^^ well umm. im a wee bit behind on my Vanilla costume but its coming along lol. Im alittle worried about the boots >_> im going to see if my mom has any boots I can butcher lol. And and does anyone know where I can get a wig and for it be. . .arround $35?

12-30-2004, 10:56 AM
I was going to make the straps out of spring steel, solder snaps onto the straps and then attach them to the under-side of the collar. It should hold up, since I'm going to vacuum form the collar. I have to figure out exactly how I'm doing the bra still, though. I was thinking maybe cutting up an existing bra so it showed enough? I wanted to vacuum form a chest plate kind of thing, too, but I am rethinking that idea as it might not be too comfortable. The shoes are going to be a pain as it is.

For your wig, try amphigory.com It'd probably be around 30-45 for the right length. I can't remember if it comes in mint green or not, though. If not, I guess ebay?

12-30-2004, 02:01 PM
If all else fails there's a costume shop here in Athens OH called bananaroad (www.bananaroad.com) and they sell wigs. I could always pick one up for you and you can work with it at the con.
Manic Panic also sells really nice wigs as does theaterhouse.com

12-30-2004, 03:25 PM
Nicole, are you making the jewel things for all of us? I'm just curious because I'm working on Milfeulle right now and need to know if I need to make one. If you are, I assume we'll just get them at the con...but how will we attach them?

12-30-2004, 06:30 PM

That would be really nice if Im not able to find out. ^^ thankies. But Im going to look on ebay and some other places tonight and If I can't find anything I'll let you know. Thanks though thats a good idea. I would just go ahead and make the helment thing on her head and pin it to the wig when we mess arround with it. ^^ okies. .i'll start looking though.

01-02-2005, 08:01 PM
I can bring everyone one of the jewel thingys! (I just need to know how many of them and what colors I'll have to make. I know most of the Angels have red ones but Forte has one blue one on her corset.)
I made them with two pinbacks (since they're kind of big) so they go on kinda like a brooch. The only bad thing is they're kinda heavy and may slump down a little bit....If you'd rather make them a differant way(or can tell me a better way to do it!^_^) though go for it! ^_^

01-08-2005, 12:34 PM

Let me know if you all are getting a photoshoot together, outside of Admin's.

Please send me a PM and one to Eurobeat so we can be at your shoot if you decide to have one!

I'd like a photoshoot outside of Admin's. It'd be nice, don't you think guys?

On to my question though. I think almost everyone has the little tiny black circles surrounded by the gold bias tape we're using on their jackets. They're on the bottom and the collars...How exactly are people doing them? I'm at a loss how to do them. Any suggestions would be great.

Oh, and I'm mostly done on Mifeulle, I should finish the jacket for the most part (except the parts I'm asking about) tonight, so I'll just need to make the boots and the headband. However I have like NO progress on psychicer Paine...

Are we entering these into a contest? Sam, if there's only one contest and no hall cosplay, we need to make a decision which we want to enter.

Hope everything is going well for everyone!

I was really hoping you and Sam would enter the cosplay with me. I don't really want to enter by myself, especially if we have a group. It'll be more impressive. Plus I'm working really hard on these visors too. I hope you can get Paine done in time. If worse comes to worst I can bring my sewing machine along. Let me know what's going on.

I'm putting the gold down on mine first and then sewing a black cloth circle on top of that seperately.
Or if I end up being pushed for time I'll paint the sucker on. ^_^ I hope I don't have to do that though!

Other photoshoots sound good~ ^^ and Mint'll probably be my main costume for this con, I'll probably enter that one, since I already won with Dejiko ^^;; .. . And I think Nicole was gonna use Ranpha .. . I guess it's up to you guys~~ and as for the little black circles, I was probably gonna make them out of felt, and hot glue them on ^^;; that's my current plan for it.. .but I've been debating on other ways ^^;;; .. .

As for progress~ The Ranpha dress is almost all done~ I started cutting out pieces for my Mint coat, and wigs are almost all styled ^^;; ; ... I'm hopeing to get my coat done by Wednesday ^^;;. . . hopefully~ ... hrmm..

Speaking of coats....how did you get your sleeves to be poofy? I for the life of me couldn't do it so mine are kinda flat. My coat is such a pain in the butt...I'll never make anything that's lined ever again...lol
I've finished Forte's dress though! I'm a little worried about the neckline but I'm going to double side tape myself in there just in case. ;) I think the best part of having that done was my Mom's reaction to it: "Good lord that girls boobs are huge! Are you really doing that?!" :thumbsup:

I actually used a pattern for my poofy sleeves. Butterick 3417. I just had to alter some of the sleeve parts to fit onto another top. It worked really well, and it wasn't too hard at all! I love my big poofy sleeves.

When do we want a photoshoot?

Tracy can you give me Yunie and Carlos' emails so I can send everyone our photoshoot info?

01-11-2005, 01:17 PM
Hahaha. That is most peoples' reaction to Forte. For stuffing, I would make the lining tight on your arm and then add in some batting or stuffing to make it stand up. I might end up having to put in an extra bit of lining inside the two showing pieces, but that's my idea so far on it.

01-12-2005, 09:22 PM
heh, I'm still working with the sleves~ but so far, the poofiness of mine come from massive amounts of gathering of fabric ^^;;

but yeah! do we have any other photoshoot times to tell the other peoples who were interested? ^^

01-12-2005, 10:27 PM
maybe...sunday morning for the photoshoot? Maybe 10? It's going to be sooooo busy Saturday, and Sam and I have two photoshoots so... Plus the prejudging is in the morning...I just think that will be best. Let me know!


BTW. Milfeulle is done minus the boots!! So sexy!

01-13-2005, 06:21 AM
hmm...I have Haibane cosplay on Sunday but we haven't agreed on a time yet. I'll have to IM everyone and ask.

The gathered sleeves are a bit less insanely difficult to do for Mint because she doesn't have long sleeves. The only way I could see doing it for Forte (because she has more sleeves and they are tight) would be having some kind of tulle or stuffing in there to hold them up.
