View Full Version : The What Costume/What Day Thread

Well, it's officially the week of the con. This raises the question of...

What costumes are you wearing?
and
On what days are you wearing each?

(Okay so that was two questions.) I know a lot can happen in a week, but try to speculate, or list what you plan to do as of now. This might help to work out photo op type stuff, groups, or even just let ppl know what characters to look out for on certain days if you want to meet up.

In answer to my own questions:
Friday I'll be wearing a revised version of my old Tifa costume. I don't want to feel cold or naked, so I've given it a more goth look that will allow me to be more covered, and also feel like I'm wearing a different costume. I feel like I wore Tifa a lot last year, so I wanted to do something different with it, since I like being the character. You'll probably spot me hanging onto a Cloud dressed in drag lol.
Saturday I'll be dressed as Lulu the whole day, wearing it to the cosplay.com photoshoot and in the Masquerade.
Sunday I probably won't be at the con very long, but for the time I am there I'll be dressed as Dita from Chobits. It's possible but unlikely that my boyfriend will be dressed as Jima with me.

I can't wait to see everyone there! Even though I should be stressing about finishing stuff, I'm too excited to worry about it.

Friday: Belldandy, until I get sick of it and change into jeans.

Saturday: White Mage Yuna if it exists by then; Toshiya or Nuriko if it doesn't. I'll be accompanied by my best friend wearing a Miyu costume I made for her.

*eyeroll* Okay, you want me to wear Toshiya. Hikura's offered me like five boxes of Pocky to finish Yuna. Tsuki wants to see Neptune. At this point I'm either gonna flip a coin or just wear jeans. ;)

Hmm...I'll be Cyborg Number 18 every day I'm going...which is Friday, Saturday and possibly Sunday.

However, I've got it into my head to wear two different Red Ribbon Army vests on two different days. One is shorter in length and more accurate, technically, than the other...but I like the other one too. So I will wear both ....no one might notice the difference really. So yeah. I'll probably get mad tired of walking around in heels ALL day long so I might change into something more comfortable for the feet. I've been trying to think of maybe putting together an alternate costume of 18 that she wears...just the vest and some capri jeans...but I dont have capri jeans anymore and blahblahblah...and once AGAIN, I'm rambling.

So yeah, 18gou all three days. ^,^

Friday, I'll be Yolei/Miyako Inoue from Digimon...wearing it on the train too, actually ^^ Saturday is the S/S looove day, which means of course I'll be the Tokyo Babylon Seishirou in the red suit, not to be confused with the X Seishirou in black (Destra) and the TB vet!Seishirou (Skuld)...I think we may have one more S/S pair, but I don't know. Sunday I'll be wearing pretty church clothes in the morning, and if my friend digs up her boots like she promised she would, X18 Subaru after church. Looking forward to seeing all the pretty costumes ^^

Something Lulu

If you wear your Moogle costume on Friday we can take some cool FF pics. ^_^

kitty-neko, If you wear Chii on Sunday I'll be wearing my Dita costume, but if it's a hassle for you to wear it that day I'll understand.

My work schedule got all messed up this week and it sets off my costume making schedule. >_< Looks like I'm not getting much sleep this week.

Something Lulu
04-14-2003, 12:22 AM

its really bad... I took some cat ears (actually theyre rabit ears...) and glued a pipe cleaner and pompom on top...:thumbsup:

but hey its cute and I have nothing else planned for friday so I guess i'll wear it. besides, everyone loves a moogle.

Koumori
04-14-2003, 10:08 PM
Okay. Thinking ahead now, I'm thinking that I won't be wanting to wear that Belldandy outfit for 12 hours on Friday. So maybe I'll bring comfortable clothes in a gym bag. If that works out, I'll try doing the same thing on Saturday.. start out wearing Toshiya and then change into a costume that's actually comfortable (Yuna if she's ready) later in the day.

Koumori, if you need storage space at the con you could probably stash your bag or extra costumes in our room ^^

hehe, still sounds awesome though, my first con, so seeing a live moogle in the same room will definetly be a new thing to me ....plus my claws have in print on them "When using any striking tool, eye protection is mandatory" I'm a safe wolverine....so i guess friday will be the "resourcefullness costume day" :)

LOL @ the claws...would you mind if I got a pic of them? That's the kind thing I find funny.
As for resourcefulness day...I think I fall into that, too. I know I'm probably going too look like I was too lazy to make a real Tifa costume, but screw it. I made one, I wore it a lot, and I'm tired of feeling cold in it. As proof of this, here's a pic of me waiting to get into Comic Con on the last day. http://satokasunoai.crosswinds.net/cc02/sunday4.html Don't be fooled - just cuz it's California doesn't mean it's warm all the time! (We're wrapped up in Enishi's super scarf. We had so much fun with that thing lol.) It would just be sad to see me in Boston wearing that thing. I was once told I look like a scared hamster when I'm cold because I start shivering. Scared Hamster Tifa? Not a pretty sight.
omg what am I babbling about? lol I need to go work on my costumes so I'll have something to wear to this con!

JacksUsername
04-14-2003, 10:47 PM
hehe, pictures are fine, first convention costume, so I'll be taking a bunch myself to go back and laugh at the craftsmanship.

Ah! You're shattering my stereotypes of California...its always sunny and always warm...i have to believe this or my world will come shattering down. and as for Hamster Tifa....O_O *pictures Hamtaro and FF7 crossover*

I'm going to have nightmares now about hamsters fighting sephiroth.

04-15-2003, 12:37 AM
Hmm, I think my plan is as follows:

Friday - Robin
Saturday- Quon and Azalyn
Sun- either Quon again or Nuriko... I just can't decide what to wear for Easter Sunday. Anyone planning on doing anything special for Easter?

Oshi
04-15-2003, 01:12 AM
Friday - Rufus Shinra (New costume!)
Saturday - Tidus definately in the evening, maybe Seifer in the afternoon
Sunday - Plainclothes, or Seifer; depends how early we leave.

You're sweet. :) Thanks! But I think I'll just check my bag. Or else stash it in the trunk of my car.

man Lafiel, that vanilla costume looks cool. I hope I get to have some pics of you dressed as Lafiel though! You look so cool in that costume. ^_^

Oh well. All this what costume/what day chatter has me trying to figure out that if I was going to make another costume for a con, what the hell would it be. All I can think of is Miriya Genius, Claudia or Misa from Macross...or some 2d figher chick like Sakura or Maki...other than that, I can't think of anything. Maybe I'll cosplay Clover from Blue Monday. lol...that's so lame though, I'd be wearing all my regular clothes. Hmm...I like Dorothy from The Big O...

TyJILDown & Numner 18:
Aww thanks! I hope to be as cute as the picture, I have a bad feeling I don't make a good looking blonde.

There is a big group of gals from the show. I should post them up maybe can have a group of them at Otakon or something. My friend is being the red hair girl (Main).

Number 18: Tough choices :) Fighter girlies are always popular and cute ^^. Looking at your pictures your sakura costume looks good!

I'm leaving tomorrow ! WEEEEEEEEE!!

I just got an idea for the Saturday night dance. I know I'm not going to want to wear Lulu to it (I can barely walk in it, let alone dance lol. And I think I'd have to kill the inevitable person who stepped on my lace.), so I'm going to pack the dress I was going to use as an original Dita costume, and wear that. I wore it to my prom way back when so I know I can dance in it. ^_^

number18
04-16-2003, 04:49 PM
Sweet idea, Something LuLu. I am actually going to wear a cheapo rip off another #18 costume, where she's got bear arms and whatnot. Wish I could wear my mary janes to the dance, but I'll need sneaks if I'm breakin. w00t to that! Back to that costume though. What's lame is that I will think it's a decent #18 costume, but probably nobody else will recognize the elements to it. Yar harhar...

here's to dancing in costume! =lots of rowdy cheering=

Something Lulu
04-16-2003, 06:15 PM

Mako-san your doing a costume from Real bout Highschool that is so cool.

I'll be Merle all three days unless I should bring my very old sailor moon or cammy costume.
What do you guys think I should do? Should I stick with one costume or bring the others. We do have room in my car now that some people droped out.

JacksUsername
04-16-2003, 09:56 PM
*cough* bring others! Seeing other costumes is always good, unless you're really attatched to the Merle costume. I'm a sailor moon enthusiast, so that'd be cool. Your choice though!
