Okay, I made a simple badge on the computer that says; "Cosplay.com Member Brita_Lee" with my avatar pic and printed it off. I used the plastic thing I got from Anime North to put it in. I highly encourage others to do the same. It'll be easier to pick each other out, and may encourage conversation and such. I think I may wear it on the strap of my bag, or the side of my bag.

Who's with me, eh? :jjacks:

I might try it out. It all depends on my little ole printy the printer here. For some reason the black ink isn't working properly and i know i haven't ran out of it... and i'm too lazy to try and fix. I'm not one for badge wearing though... i always put them on my InuYasha plushie. He he, make HIM suffer! Hmm... basically though, if people remember that i'll be the InuYasha in sunglasses and a leash, it shouldn't be hard to pick me out. Unless some OTHER IY takes my idea and i haven't killed him/her yet *glares*

Still a great and simple idea!

As is yours Birta_Lee,
but in my case... My face is my avatar, no need to torture you all with a picture of me up close when you already have to deal with seeing my mug in person.

Ill wear one if i can get access to a printer...i think i can though. mine will be...well some where on my costume lol, well most likely on the bottom half of the top/shirt ill be wearing. Mine will have my avatar, username, real name,www.cosplay.com and a list of the conventions I,ve been too. I made one and if any one else would like me to make them one and i can make it and send it to them they just have to post here with there info here and ill make it and put it on my webpage and put up the link and they can goto it save and print it, I would print it for you but i don't even have a printer that works. Heres and example of what it would look like(heres mine)

I still have Scoti's saved on my computer. I've attached it below. The second is a different version of the badge that I found on one of the other convention forums. On that one there's space for your user name, avatar and whatever else you want to add. ^_^

Sounds interesting... I'll definitely use one of those versions of the badge :D

Wow, so many replies in so wittle time. *grin* I just find its easier than guessing by costumes cuz there could be lotsa people in the same one. And its not like I know what any of you look like in person (or recognize you due to my limited mind space). I think it makes it easier, and maybe even fun.

ohhh I still have the one I used from AN but no one really looked at it o.O

I suppose if you are looking out for it, or for someone imparticular, than it would be noticed.

If I can find it, I'll be wearing my AMV.org badge. ^^ But a cosplay.com one may be added as well....

Don't quote me, and I hate to be the only one posting something potentially negative here, but I SEEM to vaguely remember Admin talking about some kind of copyright issue or similar when using "cosplay.com" in a badge. I may be wrong (it HAS happened before :) ) so someone may want to check with him (or not).

Personally, I'll be out of cotume on sat morning, so I'll have my name in BIG letters so people can recognize me :).

I'm pretty sure that was taken care of. ^^ I remember for AN03 there was a thread about badges and we got the Okay from Admin. ^_^

Dani, do you mean this thread? http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=734062&highlight=cosplay.com+badges#post734062
I think the concensus was we can use them, just as long as no one is making ANY kind of profit from them. So as long as everyone makes their own for themselves (or friends I guess) we should be fine.

Whelp...I can't attend CNA this year, because my parents are going to the Great Lakes Jam...:cries: But I will have my dearest, bestest friend Brita carry around my spirit doll (which is, in reality, a Neopets Toy Star "UltraNova" doll from McDonalds), witha pretty badge saying something along the lines of "This is Mekrd" o.O

That I will Mekrd, that I will. See, what me and my friends do, is when someone can't be somewhere, the say they are there in "spirit". So we make or use dolls to host the spirit, hence "spirit doll". Oh and Mekrd? Do you think Zero is interested in coming, or is this too short notice?

I dunno...I think he'd need a ride there, though...because his Mom's gone for three days, so he'd have no means of getting there. I do think it is too short of notice, though. If you want me to call and ask, I will.
