Winnipeg, MB's biggest convention YAY! Still many months (late july, early aug) away but I'm already planning, trying to get people for a cosplay chess match/ play .

Who else is planning on going and cosplaying what? I know more and more out of towners are starting to come in which is cool^__^

I'm being Captain Jack Sparrow from KH2/ POTC2 for the match and maybe another girly cosplay if I have time.

I'm going to Ai-Kon. My cosplay plans are,

Luffy ~ One Piece
Haku ~ Naruto
Izumi ~ Full Moon wo Sagashite

Not sure if I'll go in the Chess Match, Kat, but we'll see as the con gets closer.

I'm doing a trinity blood costume now but I'm stuck between picking out three >.< Their all so pretty! and I want to do a massive insane costume this year because I can! For Esther I need a red wig, but I have the exact same hair as Ion Fortuna.....

If anyone has any preferences for one they would LIKE to see made these are my options:

Esther gold and black queen:
(you can see Ion here as well right near her)

Ion Fortuna (aqua marron battle garb)
(front shot of costume)

Esther white rose queen (VS.2 aka non corination):

Does it ussualy take this long for Ai-kon to announce there speakers and events???? I have never seen a convention that waits so long?

Because Ai-Kon is still fairly small, there aren't any guests. Or at least not yet, I'm pretty sure the staff is looking at guests for future years.

Masquerade, Art Fair, Vendors, Showings, Cosplay Photoshoot and games are a no brainer, and the rest of the stuff is organized in conjunction with the con staff, like the Gothic Lolita Tea Party, and Panels.

It's still super fun though, and the anticipation is what makes it even better. :D

Ok, I kinda assumed it that Ai-kon was like that but it never hurts to ask, and I looking very forward to going to the event!

What is a Gothic Lolita tea party???? call me a noob if you wish
but I have never heard of such a thing.

Anyhoo I look forward to seeing you all there, I have already choosen to go as Zatch Bell and maybe Dosu Kinata (Naruto) give me a hollar at the convention.

The Gothic Lolita Tea Party, is basically a tea party where people can come dressed up in EGL costumes, talk about EGL, and have yummy baked goods and tea. There's a whole thread on it over at the Ai-Kon forums here (http://www.ai-kon.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=61), I'm sure they can answer your questions.

A lot of events are planned out in the forums to some extent too, there's discussions on what type of music to have for the dance, and should there be karoake, what type of game shows to do. You can get a great idea before hand of some events from the Other Events Forum (http://www.ai-kon.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=12). I hung out there last year, and knew a few of the event details before the con announced them on the site.

I'll look out for you. It'll be some great times. :D
