Nya... I'm starting this thread because Ohayocon is a few weeks away and we need something to up our excitement about it! ^_^ So... let's talk about what you're excited about for this con!

For me, Ohayocon 2002 was my very first con and cosplaying experience. It's always my favorite con and I have the most memorable and positive experiences at Ohayocon than any other conventions I attend. I'm not sure why. I just always do.

I'm looking foward to seeing friends I don't get to see very often. I'm looking forward to cosplaying and showing off my new Psychicer costume. I hope I can get it done in time. ;_; Heading up the Disgaea photoshoot, and being in Marsie's panel will be a ton of fun too! I spend more time at cons taking pictures, socializing and having fun, so there's no peticular event I really look forward to. I'm competing in the masqurade, but I know how they go... so I'm not expecting much from it... other than going on stage and having fun. =) Most of all, I can't wait for a break from the real world for a weekend. XD

I'm so excited too.. I can't stop thinking about it.
Ohayocon blew me away. Ohayocon 2004 was my 1st Convention ever and the memories that I have of it are awesome. I'll still break a smile thinking about it. AMV's and Vidoes and alot 'o people and huge concert!!! I'm excited about Steve Conte.. I can't wait for that.
I'm more excited that I come back to this Con with friends and experience. And also that I get to meet a ton of new people. It seems like it's going to be even bigger this year. All year I have been waiting to return to Ohayocon.. because in my mind nothing compares with this con.

3 days is just not enough.

There's a Disgaea panel? Awesome, find me and I'll join in!

Ohayocon 2003 was my first Ohayocon.. I can't wait to cosplay again. It's been WAYY too long. I miss getting all the attention, even if people didn't know who the heck I was..

I hope I get to meet Scott McNeil this year as well ^^

I'm definately looking forward to my first Ohayocon. I haven't been to a con in 5 months so I'm suffering a bit of withdrawl >_< It'll definately be a good way to start off the new school semester though! I just hope the weather co-operates for the drive.

This will be my first ohayocon ever. I'm not sure what to expect from it, but from reading this thread..it sounds like a lot of good things! I'm looking forward to finally getting some decent pics of my songstress rikku with my friend in the songstress yuna costume i just made her. yay.

R1KKu
01-03-2005, 12:01 PM
I hope I can still make it, will be my first Ohayocon too. Man, I still gotta register and get a room!

And there better not be any rain, snow, hurricanes, etc on my way there. =D

01-03-2005, 04:29 PM
I hope you can make it too R1KKu! I'm also hoping you'll be bringing your awesome Sesshomaru! ^_^
Wow...10 days left!

Bobbi
01-03-2005, 06:25 PM
10 days left and I'm just now getting started on the hard parts of my costume. If I work really hard every night I might be able to get it done in time. I might need to bring a sewing machine with me to the con to finish things on Thrusday if need be. *dies*

KnuxieChan
01-03-2005, 07:01 PM
I hope I can finish mine in time. I don't have much left, but I'm so lazy. X__X

Yes...there can be no snow storms or anything, but the weather in Ohio is ok at the moment, but I do live 2 hours away from it. Please! Let it be good weather! I am so exicted, I went last year and haven't been to a con since, I am going to go crazy when I get there. It's just the best: walking around with your friends ( not to mention in costume), walking through the hotel dressed up!, the hotel itself is pretty awsome, the convention center itself (I heard they're expanding it from last year, making the dealers room bigger thank god!), and of course spending money and just being surrounded by other fans is sooo great! I can't wait! I want to go now!

Ameria
01-03-2005, 11:35 PM
Knuxie-chan, when are you gonna be Mr. K?! XD We've gotta get pics together as K and Leon from PoH! Both gun-toting, blonde-haired, ponytail-sporting dudes. :bigtu:

Yay! I can't wait for Friday/some part of Saturday/Sunday! Last year, Ohayocon was my first ever con that I attended, and most importantly, the first con that I cosplayed at and went with my Eggers! This year, Ohayocon is going to be our first overnight con! (even though we have to head home on Saturday, Oh well I'll live)

I'm TOTALLY looking forward to cosplaying Julia with my hot boyfriend as Spike. I'm sure ppl will recognize us. We haven't decided what else we're going to do, we've both been too busy to make any costumes, so maybe we'll do the Chii/Hideki thing yet again on Friday, and maybe make some fun shirts for Sunday!

Other than that, I'm just excited to go. Cons are the best. Con PEOPLE are the best! Oh, and I really want to buy stuff at the dealer's room, although I'm sure I won't have any money. And I'm planning on entering something in the art contest! w00t!

Can't wait to see you guys there! Be sure to say a big HI and hugs and piccies! I hope we can all hang out!

Believe it or not, but this will only be my second time ever going to a convention. The first time was Ohayocon 04. ^_^ I am so excited that it is that time again. ^_^ Plus now I know so much more things about conventions, than I did a year ago. I mean I knew about anime, but now I know about both. YAY! I am so happy, and I am going to cosplay this year as well.

R1KKu
01-04-2005, 02:26 PM
YAH!!! my bf registered us! woo!!!

ok had to get that out.

(Gah! I still need to get the room!!)

Well Im not too worried about it snowing a bit when I get there, wouldnt mind a few snowy pictures, just as long as its not bad on the way there and back; the drive is already gonna be like 5-6 hours. No offense to anyone, but Im more worried about the smell in Northern Indiana. Last time I passed through, it stunk so bad, I just wanted to shove my socks in my nose,blech!

Im soo excited, its been less than 2 months since my last con, and Im dying for another one :waaaah:

ok time to get off my lazy bum and fix/finish my costumes.

eeeeeeeeek >.< i'm gunna pop a blood vessel if i keep getting excited!!! its sooo close, but yet too far away! i cant wait to go to ohayocon, last year i went and it was my first time going there, and to any con, and the first time i cosplayed (wich i might ad my costume was horrible) but this year i just CANT wait to meet new people and run around and get into trouble, it's SUCH an experience! ^^ :mfg:

bunnybeth
01-06-2005, 03:37 PM
Yay, I'm so excited and nervous, it's only 1 week until I start making my way towards Ohayocon. And, I'm not even *quite* half done with my main costume. I really need to finish it by next Wednesday, or I'm going to be sewing in the car while my friend drives... and that would just be sad.

This is going to be my first Ohayocon and first con sans husband, girl's weekend out, yay! I'm really looking forward to meeting new people, the 21+ meet up at the Ohayocon Cafe, spending some time in Artist's Alley, and my photoshoot. I do love cons.... :heart:

Miyabi-
01-06-2005, 03:59 PM
Yay to the 21+ crowd! It makes me feel not so old seeing people around my age cosplaying. *is a ripe old 24*

Bobbi
01-06-2005, 05:15 PM
I'm up there too... 23 here! =P

NecromanticChii
01-06-2005, 06:51 PM
We had 80 year old cosplayers/crossplayers last year. I may be 18, but when I am 80 I will still cosplay. ^_^ So for those of you who are 21+ none of you are that old. ^_~

Rameana
01-06-2005, 08:34 PM
21+ are any of u going to the Ohayocon Cafe on friday night at 10pm?
I don't know what's going on... but yea.

Also... WHERE IN THE WORLD IS EVERYBODY? I remember last year this forum was busys... now there is like 4 ppl tops in here.

KnuxieChan
01-06-2005, 09:33 PM
They all got lives, probably. ;_;

Bahzi
01-06-2005, 10:27 PM
"lives'...hmmm what's that???? XD It was rather busy here last year...it's more likely they just stopped posting on cosplay.com, I know many people who stopped doing that. The Ohayocon boards are still pretty active.

bunnybeth
01-07-2005, 10:38 AM
Yup, I'll be at the 21+ meet up on Friday at 10pm. I've been really looking forward to it ever since it was suggested. I typically feel young (and look it) at work and such, but at cons... I just don't have the energy of a teenager anymore. :rolleyes: So, it'll be nice to be around people less than 10 years younger than me. I'm 26 years old, as is my friend (she goes by "leftyfro" here) who is coming with me.

R1KKu
01-07-2005, 11:26 AM
Yeah, Im sure Ill stop by too, probably wont have anything else going on.

Heh, Bunnybeth, Im the same way. People have mistaken me for a teenager, and sometimes I can look it, but when Im at a con, I can get so tired out, and tend to 'look' older cuz Im so worn out; its weird.

Bobbi
01-07-2005, 12:47 PM
I always get mistaken for a teenager. I've been hit on my 15 year olds. People wonder why I'm not at school when I'm working in the mornings on school days. I get carded for video games... even T rated ones. O_o;; Everyone thinks that I'm like 16 or 17 and still in high school. I bet if I had car issues by the high school during school hours, the police probably make a big fuss over it until I showed them my ID, thinking that I was skipping or something. It's rather annoying.

At cons though, I tend to blend in with the 21+ crowd. I just don't act like a teenager. A lot of ones I see at cons anymore break stuff, run around chasing people, breaking things, and causeing huge disturbances... that really irks me. Some of them run after cosplayers squealing the characters name and glomping them. x_x

I'm 22, but what exactly is the Ohayocon Cafe? *lost* I've never been to Ohayocon before so I'm not entire sure what to expect.

KnuxieChan
01-07-2005, 02:58 PM
I'm only 17.. but I try not to act immature (I have matured alot though, con wise. I used to be such an idiot. X_X)
INo one ever knows how old I am. I either look younger than 17, or older, depending on who I'm with.

I never really hang out with people my own age, either..

Bahzi
01-07-2005, 05:02 PM
Gah! My birthdays Just a few months off...I'm 20, but I get people thinking I'm 16 or younger...a lot! At the anime club I go to 3 of the girls there said they really had no idea how old I was, because they said I carried myself and spoke like I was 30, but looked like a high school student. But yes, I've been hit on by really young teenage boys too...geez, I didn't even like them when I was a teenager, I was always the quiet, mellow type. Bummer about the otakon cafe. *sigh*

Rameana
01-07-2005, 06:10 PM
as for ime is half and half.. I can look young and look my age.. it all depends on how I dress.

At Cons is another matter. I can still hang with the teens very easy.. with no prob. I'm not as destructive because I never was.

I'm not sure what the Cafe is totally about. It's more a place where we get to meet people that we talk to on the forums. like meet and greet and then u are allowed to hold some panels there as well.

01-07-2005, 08:00 PM
I am 24 and I am bringing a bunch of drunks.....so I can be there. If anything you can throw things at the 5 drunks! ^_^

Bobbi-chan: When are you wearing Rabi en Rose? I want to make sure I have my Piyoko there at the same time. ^_^

01-07-2005, 08:31 PM

The have a bar there? I did not know that.
I'm doing the drinking game for my B-day. I just really want to do it. .. and it's only fun with a bunch of ppl. ^_^
And don't worry about me, I'm one of those who get happy with beverages. lol

Bobbi
01-07-2005, 11:04 PM
I'm not sure when I'm wearing Rabi. I may wear it later on Friday night after I change out of Flonne. I'm bringing a lot of costumes, so I'm not really sure. ><;; I'll let you know at some point during the con. I'm sure I'll see you somewhere.

marsie
01-07-2005, 11:09 PM
Are you coming to the meeting tomorrow?

If yes, we'll talk there!


Drinking game? What? Rameana your bday is the same weekend. I am sure that if you want a helluva party I can go and get the beverages and we can party!

Well it's the week leading up to Ohayo.. but still pretty close.
Yea, me and Inu were doing the Drinking game. I wanted to make a bash out of it, but some people were worried about ppl 18 and under.

Bahzi
01-07-2005, 11:48 PM
Right...the drinking thing. *sigh* You're right though, even though the legal drinking age is 21, not too many people are going to care if you give a legal adult anything...god knows most campuses encourage it. That's just what you need too, someone not knowing their limit and getting all shit-faced plastered...sounds like a liability. I don't drink myself, although god knows I have in the past (sorority, who doesn't drink in a sorority?). If you know the people who are coming, or someone you know can vouch for their age, won't that work? Lol you could do wristbands (j/k)

People should know their limit, I know I know mine. (Underaged thing) that's why I backed off doing a HUGE INVITE everyone party, due to the beverages.. so I wanted a 21+ crowd.
But I'm still happy about partying at a Con.

marsie
01-08-2005, 08:05 PM
how about we have it in one of the rooms and just let the cool people in

XD

word of advice. We CAN have beverages in the cafe for 21 and up. Just no wild parties.

*brings her special plum wine and sake*

I can't wait for Ohayo, either! :) Just 4 days until I leave, but I still have some stuff to do. Get a haircut, start packing, and make sure I have all the equipment I need for taking photos (empty out memory cards & recharge batteries), and jotting down all the info like flight-times & hotel reservations. I'll be there Friday morning after 9am, and if I remember last year I was able to get my room in the morning, so hopefully that'll happen again this year. :) No costumes for me, so just look for me wearing normal clothes, taking photos! ;) Good luck finishing up your costumes, everyone!!

Weather should be good all weekend, mostly coollllddd but no snow it looks like. See you all in 5 days!!

What kind of drinks should I bring? I was thinking of just bringing some of those Twisted things...maybe the apple and tangerine ones?

Ack!! Me too, Ive got like 3 costumes to finish up. Armor and swords and a helmet and wigs and a plushie. Still so much sanding and cutting and painting to do!!!

And then I get to pack it all up o.O

Koneko, the apple one is good (whoa, maybe its not a good idea to post stuff like this on these forums, little kids running around,hehe) But Im a happy drunk too. And one of the characters Im going to cosplay is a drunk,really makes my day ^.^

01-10-2005, 12:03 PM
Yay! The con is in less than a week!!!! I can't wait!!!

I have all of my costume completed, except my wig hasn't arrived quite yet. My boyfriend on the other hand... I'm starting to get really nervous about him not getting his Spike costume done on time! He's being really wishy-washy about it... arrrg! I don't think the cosplay experience is on the top of his mind right now- I think he's more excited about the video game competitions. Oh well, I just hope he doesn't put everything off until Thrusday!!!

We're both 21 (going to be 22) and all of our friends that we are going with are as well. So hey, feel free to invite us too! (^^)

I am getting so excited about this con The only thing is... I need a hotel room! I'm registered, but the people I was supposed to stay with aren't coming, and it was my friend who booked the room, so I have a desperate call in to a friend of mine who I *think* (read: hopehopehopepray!!) is still going and can hopefully room with. My new Faye costume will be done (I just need to secure the lining and add trim), but since I'e been such a lazy-ass about doing it, I don't think I'll get to the I-no fixups I wanted. I'm definitely still bringing the costume, but it might be in the same barely-finished, held together by safety pins condition it was at Anime Reactor. Maybe I'll at least be able to add the front buckles, since Faye should be done tonight.

As far as the drinking/partying/whatnot, I'm legal and I'm game for it! And I already learned last year what NOT to wear (Goldschalger + Hurricanes+ low-cut kimono costume= BAD), so I should be much better off this year ^_^;

01-10-2005, 04:03 PM
Yah!! youre bringing I-no!!! I think it looked pretty good at AR, I didnt notice any pins, but then again it was in the main ballroom, or whatever you call it, and the lights were dim. Hope to see ya there. We should get together with Rivvy and Alice for a small photoshoot, like GG girls or something, lol.

And Im all for a get together/party/ with drinks. Yes Im legal =P

Actually, you can't see the pins unless you're really looking for them. Really, the two things that irk me about it is the lack of buckles on the front and the collar is stitched funny. The buckles I'm sure I can fix in time, but the collar would take more ripping and restitching than I think I can handle by Thursday night.

So hey, does that mean you're bringing Baiken with you?

Sorry i haven't said hi over here in a while. We've had a lot of planning going into this years ohayocon. not to mention almost 400 more user on the forums this year then last year, takes a lot of time to mod.

I hope that everyone will enjoy their time at the con, and let us all know what you think afterwards.

The weather seems like it will not be as bad as last year. It will most likely be cold, with some sparse snow here and there, but with the weather changing so much lately, who knows?

I just turned the big 23 so I'll try and stop by the 21+ panel to say hi, but my work at ohayocon makes me involved in all aspects of the con, and that eats my time.

If anyone wants to listen in, I'll be teaching the "parents guide to anime" panel and the "boot to bootlegs" panel.

Again hope you all enjoy the con, hope everyone appreciates all the hard work!

I'm glad the weather is looking good for this weekend myself- after all this that we've had up in Northwest Ohio, it will be nice not to have to deal with it when at the con!

Eggers and I started playing some SCII today to get ready for the tourney. (If we can make it, that is.) Are there any other cosplayers that are gonna be in the video game tourneys? If so, I'll cheer for you too!

BTW- Is there going to be a "cosplay.com" photoshoot this year? I missed it last year and I would really like to come this year if I can!

Three days! Three days! Three days so we can all escape from the mundane world and go to con mode! Pocky, cosplay, anime, insane fun! I am seriously so exicted. These last days are going to be sooo slow!

Yay for SCII tourney! I missed signing up for it last year myself but I reeeeeally want to this year. I played some people just for fun last year and they were kinda cheap about it. They ALL played as Ivy and they ALL did nothing but her Calamity Symphony move. I was like, "Can't you play as anyone else or do anything else?"
What are your favorite characters to play as? My best one is Kilik and my other faves are Taki and Voldo.

Hey everyone,

With just 3 days to go until the con, I just want to get a heads-up of who's going and which costumes you're bringing. :) This way I'll know who to look out for wearing what costumes on what day. Good luck finishing up those costumes, and please come say hi to me if you see me, or if I ask to take your picture and I tell you I'm from cosplay.com, please let me know if you're a member on the site and what's your member name. :) That'd be great!
Admin will also be there, and I believe we'll be the only mods attending..

(Please reply here with your costume-list and day you'll be wearing them)

Eurobeat King: Eurobeat King outfit (Saturday afternoon)

I am getting so excited about this con The only thing is... I need a hotel room! I'm registered, but the people I was supposed to stay with aren't coming, and it was my friend who booked the room, so I have a desperate call in to a friend of mine who I *think* (read: hopehopehopepray!!) is still going and can hopefully room with.
If it turns out that you can't room with your friend, we've got a space open in our hotel room since our fourth person had to back out. So if you'd like, you could room with us (us being two guys and a girl currently) and the cost would be $57.79. Let me know if you'd like to do that. That said, I'm out!

Yay. I think you already know what i'm going as, but i'll post it anyways. because it has recently changed since I finished a costume that I didn't expect to finish until closer to katsucon.

Songstress Rikku - Final Fantasy X-2
Alchemist Yuna - Final Fantasy X-2
Default Ayane costume - Dead or Alive 2

Possibly school girl ayane, but I have no clue when i'd wear it, since i'm not even going to get there till around 7 or 8ish friday evening. >_>

EDIT: I am sort of worried a little, b/c i'm am seeing snow flurries showing up in the weather forecast. I hope they remain as just flurries...meh i hate snow.

01-11-2005, 11:26 AM
My costumes are as follows:

Animeisha: I remember your Eboshi from last year, but I can't recall your Aisha.. still, it'll be good to see your new costumes this weekend! :)

NecromanticChii: I remember a couple of Freya's last year, and I hope I got a picture of yours. Do you remember me taking a pic?

R1KKu: I remember you from A-cen! Thanks for posing for all those pics, and they came out great last year! (I like the ones we took by the HUMMER in front of the hotel) It'll be good to see familiar faces who attend both Ohayo & A-cen. :)

pixiekiity: YAY! I love the Ayane that you finished in-time for the con, and can't wait to see it! That makes it 2 (maybe 3?? ;) ) Ayane costumes you'll be bringing.. 7 or 8pm arrival? :lost: That's later than you originally told me you & Merily would be getting there.. Do you think the snow would affect your arrival that badly? Or are you leaving later than said earlier?

Yeah, I'm checking the weather constantly for Columbus AND Chicago O'Hare (my stop-over city) for Thursday-Sunday. Last thing I need is a delay, since I won't be there until 10am the earliest if I'm not delayed.. *knock on wood* :thumbsup:

Well, since we're leavin here around 3:00, we'll probably actually get there arund 6:30-7ish, then we wont be able to be down at the con till around 8. =\ classes suck!

Thanks to all you kind folks who have offered me a place to stay, but my friends who I asked said I could stay with them, so I'm all set! ^_^
So I'll be there, unless these rumored ice storms crop up (which would be hard to believe, given how rediculously warm it is today... but weather has a nasty habit of doing a 180 on you).

Costume-wise, I'll probably start out Fri. in Casino Faye, since I can wear most of it in the car and throw on the rest in the bathroom when I get there. I'll probably change into I-no later that day, once I have access to the hotel room (read: privacy enough to glue myself into my costume O_o). Saturday will be new costume debut day, and I'll be in my new Faye "My Funny Valentine" gown (I got it done, yay!!). I'm not sure if I'll wear that all day Sat. or if I'm going to be in the masquerade, in which case I'll probably enter I-no, but I may just skip that and do hall exhibition judging both days. I'm planning to have a Faye costume on for the concert, and depending on my level of comfort I will probably change into my Casino outfit for that. Sunday I'll probably be too busy packing and driving home to cosplay, but I might be wearing my knitted Lum hat, like I did at Anime Reactor. It's like pseudo-cosplay!

Here's my costume list. I think I posted it in another thread, but I don't remember. ><

Friday; Flonne, Gunner Yuna
Saturday: Psychicer Yuna, Bunny Mellon
Sunday: Tama-chan, Ghetto Pikachu (ears and yellow hoodie w/ normal clothes lmao)

Usada will not be making it. It's just too much to pack with that huge bow and enormous petticoat. I kind of modified my pink wig for my original costume anyway. I still need to make alterations on it. The waistband needs interfacing badly. =/

I hope you can make it to the convention safely EBK! Our weather here is severely messed up. It's about 65 with thunderstorms and it's sopposed to snow again on Friday. JOY!

*works on finishing her Psychicer*

I find it hard to believe it's going to get that cold...it's like, 68 degrees and rainy here in Athens Ohio. I hope the weather holds out for those of us who are doing outdoor photoshoots and so Eurobeat can make it in safely! ^_^

01-12-2005, 05:24 PM
They've been right the past few times they said it was going to drop drastically....they're usually pretty much dead on this close to the weekend...now last week I wouldn't have believed it, but seeing as there's only two days to go...I don't doubt it'll drop below freezing, this weather is too good to last. I just wish it wouldn't rain tomorrow, the ground is going to get all muddy...and there's no way I'm getting my shippou paws all muddy.

I think my slightly updated Sesshy armor is finished drying now.Still need to sew up my new Fluffy *pets* XD
I still need to make a helmet, finish a sword, sew up a plushie, and make this crazy claw arm thing. And pack!!

Hey, you guys are on EST time correct?? I can get confused with time zones sometimes. Im leaving really early Friday morning :jjacks:

Animeisha, hope you got your pants fixed =D

Pfft! I'm so not finished! I'm going to be sewing all day and night.

Sofar I need to:

- make ruffled collar thingies
- make sailor collar
- sew sleeves onto jacket
- sew ribbon on sailor collar
- make new thigh-highs.
- Make the other shoelace
- Put hooks and snaps on jacket and skirt, but that can be done last.
- Put tinting on 3 visors
- Attach do-hickeys to the visors.
- Alter length of jacket
- Put white trim on bottom of jacket
- See if I can find a blue shirt at goodwill to modify for new vest thingie.
- Attach bow to vest thingie.
- Make boyfriend's Takashi (dejiko fanboy) shirt and pins.
- Freakin pack!

But at least all the intensive detail and tailoring is done! It could be worse, I could be just starting on the details on the skirt. That took me forever and a half. x_x

Friday: Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket)
Saturday: Water Pretear, manga version (Pretear)
Sunday: Eri-chan (Okashina Okashi: Strangecandy)

The only costume that's 100% done now is Eri-chan. I was up until after 1am this morning (and had to wake up for work at 5:30) and will probably be up just as late tonight. At least I'm just finishing up little details now. Even if I didn't get anything else done, I could still wear the costumes and not be naked. Heh.

I'm hoping I don't get sick, between the temperature roller coaster, eating pocky all weekend, getting no sleep and wearing less-than warm costumes. Crazy weather!

I finished Faye last night, and dropped her off at the cleaners for a good pressing this morning. Go me! Hehe, I'm just not used to having something done in advance anymore. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to have time to add buckles to I-no like I thought I would, so she's going to look the same as at Reactor. Maybe by Acen I'll have her fixed....

R1KKu
01-13-2005, 12:20 PM
I am just about done with sewing, maybe a few minor things like a belt and some shoes. Did some sword sanding today, hope to get it painted later on. Still need that helmet and claw arm made o.O

Heh, Arsenal, as long as you bring I-no,right??. Do you know when Alice and Rivvy are wearing their costumes?? I think Ill throw mine on sometime around 6 or 7 tomorrow evening.

Of course I'm bringing I-no! After how badly I wanted that costume, I'm going to wear it as much as I can ^_^ I don't know when Alice and Rivvy are wearing theirs, but they're actually who I'm staying with, so I can consult with them. I'm planning on Gearing up (ok, yeah, that was corny) tomorrow evening, basically once I have access to the hotel room to get into it (it's a bit much for a bathroom change what with the spirit gum and all). So hopefully I can convince them to wear theirs then, too.
