I know its super freakin early, but who's planning to go to Megacon next year? I'm planning on Mega being my first con

I'll be there probably Saturday-only since I have to afford an out of state trip to Katsu a few weeks prior to Mega. Right now it looks like I'll be a part of my friends group (it's a secret), but if that falls through I'll be wearing one of my Katsu costumes, maybe Wander from Shadow of the Colossus.

*Kai*
07-11-2007, 08:43 PM
As per tradition, I'll be there. Still no clue as to who I am going to be because I know my ideas will change by then. =P

A new thread already? wow, that was quick...

I'll probably be there. Mega 08 will be my third MegaCon if I go.

sweet we already have a thread XD

I will be def. going since megacon is always my first convention to kick off the new con year/season.
as for costume I have no clue yet XD

07-14-2007, 07:23 PM
I'll be there, likely.

And, like Kai, no idea as to what. I'd love to have my Crusader Leon done by that time. Gotta order more maille supplies by then. Oi.

07-14-2007, 08:41 PM
Of course i'll be there. Megacon07 was my first Con ever, I plan to come prepared and I hope to work on my costumes very very soon. So if you happen to see a Pair of Black Waltz? Just run up and scream. Mechabaragon?! XD

07-15-2007, 10:48 PM
Awesome, I won't be the only newbie XD. I was hoping no one would have a problem with this thread going up so early. I pretty much made it because my Dragon Con plans were canceled and i was feeling kinda bummed out about it. Glad to see so many of you are going. I will be at Mega, they'll have to unleash an army of flying monkeys if they wanna stop me! ok im lame:(

*Kai*
07-15-2007, 11:05 PM
LoL, EXsoldierSNAKE. ^-^ You're not lame, you're jsut one of us. =P

Ohohoho, and I MIGHT have an idea of next year's list now. ^^ Depending on where we get our hotel and how close it is, I might even attempt the whole multiple costumes in a day thing.

Alright, enough rambling.....the costume list is as followed... so far. >.>

Kaname Chidori, both Military and School (( that'd be a double in a day costume probably, lol)) and POSSIBLY the brand spanking new ((sort of)) version of KUJA!!! ^^ I've been DYING to re-do him, so yea. =P


This year I wanna get names and numbers of those who wanna meet up though. >_O It's no fun missing your friends because I can't/ don't know how to get a hold of them.

I'm going, I always go to Megacon XD It was my first con many years ago, so it's special =D

My group of friends is attempting to come back again next year. For those who went to 07, I was the Demyx with the huge group of Organization XIII members. We spent a good chunk of the con upstairs posing for pictures and meeting up with other Kingdom Hearts cosplayers. It was loads of fun!

Anyways, the group's trying to go back, and we're crossing Org XIII with the various job classes from Ragnarok Online. There's a list of our costumes in my costume list.

I'll be going! I had so much fun this year and my friend and I are planning on bringing back Gundam Wing's Trowa and Catherine. Mm-hmm. Hope to see you all there.

Ooh...I saw you guys! I wanted to take a pic but...I had no camera. :( Maybe I'll get you next year!

07-17-2007, 09:17 PM
*crosses fingers* My sis and I are either going to Megacon or Jacon. We haven't decided which yet. Both if we are able to get time off, but we'll see. I had to knock out one costume for AWA cause I couldn't get time off, so I'll do it for one of the Orlando cons.

Awh! ;0; I'm sorry you couldn't get a picture of us this year!

Good news is from what I hear, just about everyone in our group is trying to come back next year =D And despite us being Ragnarok Online versions of ourselves, I know some of us are bringing the traditional Org. XIII costumes too <3 So we should be pretty easy to find again!

Yay! I'll be sure to bring my camera (hopefully I'll be getting a newer, better one) fully charged and with tons of space for pics. ^_^ Hope to see you guys there! I'll take pics of you all no matter what you're wearing!

I'm certainly going to megacon. I'll be my first mega con and I even planned out my vacation leave one week prior to it so that I can put finishing touches on my costumes. I'll have Queen Esther and Pope Alessandro from Trinity Blood finished by then. see ya'll there!

Jonslutt
07-21-2007, 05:56 AM
Not completely sure but my roommate and I might be going...we'll sure as hell try to be there.

As for costumes, if we can't go as what we plan we'll go as Jay and Silent Bob like we did on 07s Megacon (which was our first, lotsa fun ;D)

Arisa
07-29-2007, 11:57 PM
I'll almost definitely be there, unless something goes wrong. Hopefully my Evila costume will be done by then.

07-31-2007, 04:45 PM
ok im definetly gonna be there my birthday is only a week after so i should be going as a b-day present from my sister ((she wants to take her two sons anyway))

Prota-Girl
07-31-2007, 06:36 PM
YAY! I`ll be entering the Costume Contest as Female vincent Valentine! ^^

aiko_yamada
08-01-2007, 04:32 PM
I'll be there, though probably just Saturday, seeing as how Megacon isn't my favourite con out there. More than likely I'll be Kaoru Hitachiin from Ouran Host Club, though I don't know if it will be school uniform or one of the many cosplays they did at the club.

thebunnyninja
08-04-2007, 12:03 PM
I should be going to megacon my friend might come with me. If we all go we're going to do something from WoW. Morethen likely a night and blood elf

Mechabaragon
08-06-2007, 12:33 AM
Wow, there are going to be alot of people coming from here. I say someone should make a big sign that says ' Cosplay.com swarm! ' @Puddles: Kuja? Theres a guy with alot of balls..wearing so much hot pink! Lol. I hope you all finish the costumes you're trying to make!

08-06-2007, 04:25 AM
O_o...MegaCon is March 7th-9th?
Really? March?
Wow.
Wasn't expecting that. I don't know why I'm surprised, it just struck me as odd.

Prota-Girl
08-06-2007, 11:07 AM
Same here. o.o

tsuoi_kaze
08-06-2007, 10:54 PM
XD now I know why it surprised me! I turn 17 the Friday after MegaCon!
I actually had to think about that for a few minutes, too, lol.

I've only been to Mega 06 and 07, so I'm used to it being in February :thumbsup:

fightstar
08-08-2007, 12:05 PM
Never been to one, but it looks like I will have to plan for this one in 2K8. I keep hearing good things about Mega Con and I should check it out. I hope to have my Spartan '300' done by then, I hope.

Ichigo Jinx
08-08-2007, 09:02 PM
I'm going ^^ my 3rd megacon so it'll be fun. I'll have my new costume done by then too, I'm considering entering the costume contest since my friend has been bugging me about entering one every con we go to XD

Leenus
08-13-2007, 08:32 AM
It Struck me as Odd for another reason I don't remember them having the convention in March though it could be my bad memory mixing cons.

This will be my 5th Megacon WHOOT!

@ Cosspace.com People: The RSVP for Megacon has been posted.
Events>> Megacon 2008: Convention RSVP (http://www.cosspace.com/event/view/id_101/)

Edward Will Be gracing Megacon in 08 if I don't have any other cosplay planned.

08-13-2007, 04:32 PM
Mega goes back and forth between February and March. This'll be my... I dunno, sixth or seventh Megacon. As for cosplay, Friday I'm doing Lego Star Wars. No idea what my big Saturday anime costume will be yet. :|

Luckily, my mother works for the company that owns the two hotels adjacent to the convention center, so I'll be able to snag a cheap room and not deal with traffic/parking.

Violinist_Akina
08-17-2007, 02:13 PM
Lol I'm going. :3 Megacon 07 was my first con.
I plan on bringing a good camera this time that won't die XD or run out of film.
And a video camera.
XD and me and my friend will be dancing around in the halls.
So if you hear music.
And a roxas and axel dancing around.
That will be me and my friend.
I'm gonna be roxas. 8D

Can't wait for it again! <33

I've decided what my big costume for Saturday will be but it's secret! So I can't reveal any details, you'll have to wait til the con. Sunday I might go as well, just to wear Haruhi (Ouran) again because it will be a good cooling off costume and well, I just like being Haruhi! ^_^

tsuoi_kaze
08-22-2007, 08:06 PM
hmmmm...I sort of want to cosplay Haruko (FLCL) for Megacon. My friends want to do a Soul Calibur group, though, and I have limited money (I just know I won't be able to afford to make two costumes, I never can). I'll definately bring back Reno this year ^_^ I'm even going to give the wig a trim so that it looks better this time! Hopefully I can convince some of the other Turks to come back with me as well.

ComicBlondes
08-24-2007, 12:36 AM
Ok...this past Mega Con...from '07, there was a guy who was dressed up as Green Arrow ala Smallville style..and I could kick myself for not getting his info but does ANYONE know who this guy is? I am going down to Orlando in Sept, and if he's local...or is going to Orlando Comic Con I really wanted to see if he wanted to do a photoshoot with my Black Canary costume. Really need help hunting this guy down, lol.

Foos
08-25-2007, 09:59 AM
XD No big surprise, I've decided to do more obscure CLAMP stuff. One of my friends and I are doing artbook costumes from "Legend of Chun Hyang" and we've already started planning and learning how to tie different kinds of chinese knots. I'm doing props and painting/stenciling, she's doing all the embroidery and beading, as well as using her surger on both costumes, and we're both doing the gradient dying. I'm so excited! It's gonna be our big Saturday piece.

Friday I'm still planning Lego Star Wars, and Sunday remains to be what I find laying around my apartment.

Hime No Toki: Secret? ;____; Gah, I hope it's Sailor Moon or Rurouni Kenshin.

Lucifer
08-28-2007, 07:01 AM
Considering the prices have gone so high for Megacon, I likely will only attend one day. I have no idea what I'll be wearing, as there are at least 4 non-anime conventions prior to Megacon that I will be attending (Assimilation, Screamfest, FX-show, Gallifrey One), so I'll just re-wear something from one of those conventions to Megacon.

I go there mostly to shop anyway.

NiGHTmaren
08-28-2007, 04:19 PM
Nope, not Kenshin or Sailor Moon, very obscure series of character design goodness. ^_^ I'll look goofy as heck, but I love the design regardless.

SpiffyKitty
09-06-2007, 05:22 PM
I go to MegaCon every year. :3
This year, I'm going to have a booth! (My boyfriend's going to watch it during the competition on Saturday for me). :3 That is, if I decide to compete this year. I'm sure I'll have a costume... I just have no idea what yet ^^;

tsuoi_kaze
09-08-2007, 10:27 PM
Ok, put some tought into it, and I won't be able to make Haruko, since it turns out that I not only don't have the money; but I also don't have the right tools to make the guitar.

Besides, I found some great patterns at Joannes last night, so it looks like, by sheer impulse, I'll be cosplaying FFVII Aeris(th).

On a side note, my "t" key is not cooperating with me and only showing up when it wants to....*rawr*

EXsoldierSNAKE
09-09-2007, 01:13 PM
Anyone know if theres usually alot of Resident Evil or Metal Gear cosplayers at Mega?

Leenus
09-10-2007, 05:31 PM
I would love to see Resident Evil at Megacon again, Loved the group the year before (06).

Elendriel
09-11-2007, 07:47 PM
I'll be headed here as well :D

Right now I plan on bringing Lord Rasler, Haruhi (french dress artbook version), Isaak von Kampfer, Ion Fortuna and Lady from DMC3 :)

Toneriko
09-11-2007, 10:26 PM
I'm going to megacon! 3rd year baby!

I'll probably be cosplaying as Simca from Air Gear and Kristell from Mabinogi.

09-16-2007, 07:03 PM
I never went to Megacon though, but I told my friends and we all want to go. But I head it was also a SCIFI, gaming, and comic book event too. Besides having SCIFI, gaming, and comic books, what's the difference between that and a regular anime convention? Is there less anime?

Yeah, it started as SciFi/Comic/Fantasy-style convention... but branched out from there. It's pretty well integrated these days with Anime Sushi also running events.

LadyRayne
09-20-2007, 04:49 PM
I'll be there as Warrior Rikku from Final Fantasy X-2 and possibly something else if I have time. I'm excited to go, I almost thought I couldn't make it.

nessabutterfly
09-20-2007, 06:39 PM
I'll be going! I plan on having Strawberry shortcake done by then. I'll probably rewear my Riku from DN Angel, and if I have time, I'll get my Super Sailor Moon done.

sasha
09-21-2007, 12:40 AM
Considering I live 15 minutes away from the convention center... I will definitely be there. XD

NiGHTmaren
09-21-2007, 09:30 AM
Plans have changed a bit - still working on my costume for Saturday (secret), but Sunday I will be wearing Pitt from Super Smash Brothers Brawl, and my boyfriend will be Cloud from FFVII. Can't wait! :D

Prota-Girl
09-21-2007, 11:15 AM
If no one knows, I`ll be Kingdom Hearts Vincent Valentine. ^^

*Kai*
09-22-2007, 11:37 AM
Link, Candy Cane and Artbook Rosiel here baby. ^_~

Rosie is the one my cosplay partner ((we're doing a group.)) and I are competing with IF all goes as planned!!!!!! ^_^ I know the con is months away but I'm just so excited!!!

klasky
09-22-2007, 12:14 PM
IF I do go, I'll be going as Ulquiorra from Bleach... or Shino Aburame from Naruto xD; Whichever one gets done first, I guess. And seeing as I have school and live far away, I'll prolly only be going on Saturday. :s I think. <<;
It'll be my first Megacon ;O!

ShiNo_Usagi
09-23-2007, 02:24 PM
I'll be there ^^ I don't think I'll be cosplaying on Friday, just picking up my badges and going back to the room to meet up and coordinate with my group.

Saturday, I am hoping, is when I will have my NGE group and if not on Saturday, then Sunday and that means I may need a second cosplay which would be Rocker Asuka =)

Any other NGE Cosplayers?

09-27-2007, 02:17 AM
Hey!! After a bunch of board lurking, and almost 2.5 years of learning how to walk again I'm gonna attend my first convention. Living in O-town kinda sucks, since most of the big conventions are either New England area or west coast.

But yeah, definatly gonna hit MegaCon. Undecided if I want to try and put my atrophied self into something. Rehab and time will tell. Lets keep dialog going people, I need a group to go with!

Hyper_Phantom
10-01-2007, 08:05 PM
I'm definately going. I'm gonna try to keep updated and post in here everyday. I haven't been coming to this site very much lately...
So for those of you I wanted to meet last year or wanted to meet me, hopefully we can find eachother this year. =3
The two cosplay's I'll be making this year for this con will be the Arizona Tea Geisha and Fuu from Samurai Champloo. I'm not sure what other cosplays I'll be wearing, I might just draw names out of a hat for that. XD I might go as Dream from the Sandman, or Turk Vincent Valentine. I dunno lol.

Leenus
10-08-2007, 05:48 AM

Theres A Final Fantasy Vs. Nintendo Photoshoot, More Info On The Way

tsuoi_kaze
10-10-2007, 06:24 PM
The FF v.s. Nintendo Shoot sounds like fun ^_^
So far the only costumes I know I'm bringing are Reno and Aeris(th), so either way I'm set!

I need to sart on Aeris.....and finish it by the halloween party.
I really don't wanna go. Quick, help me think of a good excuse not to show up!

I think my red fabric is too bright. I seem to have trouble with ordering red things online, they always end up being too brigt. Last year my Reno wig was OMGWTFRED and now my fabric for Aeris' jacket is about the same color.

And I really need to pre-reg. I forgot to for Metro, and I really don't feel like standing in line friday night or saturday morning (whenever we get there) to pay more for a ticket than I could have.
Also, getting a hotel this year is going to be tough. I don't think my friend wants to reserve it this year because last time only two or three people paid for their share of the room (I was one of them) and she got stuck paying the rest.

ravenmist
10-19-2007, 10:31 AM
As of now I'll be there all weekend!! Hopefully I can get that whole weekend off since it'll be a slow time at work. My sis, a friend and I are doing a MKR group. Nothing crazy since we all work far too much and go to school. I have no idea about the rest of the weekend.

SunakoChan
10-23-2007, 11:42 AM
I already have costume plans for MegaCon. My bf will be going as Carl from Aqua teen hunger force... and I will be going as the Insane-O-Flex from Aqua teen hunger force-The Movie. The work out machine will also play the song that goes with it. "I like your booty.. but I'm not gay."

For those of you that don't know what the Insane-O-Flex is here's a tiny glimpse at it... Insane-O-Flex (http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:WFD9iVeGjMF_nM:http://panther3.last.fm/storable/image/180538/small.jpg)

Yes, another robot cosplay for me XD

Sloth Elric
10-24-2007, 04:12 AM
I'm debating on whether to go or not! It all depends on if I'll be working, if I'll have monies, and if Ill be allowed to drive myself to Orlando. I really want to be able to go, though, since I've heard so much about this con from friends in the past.

If I do, I think I'll probably be schoolgirl!Orihime from Bleach and maaaybe Aziraphale from Good Omens (book cosplay, omgwtf). I'd have to find myself a Crowley, though, to make it extra special.

Hola! I'll be going to Mega! It'll be my second time going. I've been going to cons for years, but Mega this year was the first con I really "stepped out" in something worth stepping out in. I'm bringing something even better next year!! I don't know what else I'm wearing beside the Gown of Doom I'm working on, but I think I'm going as somebody from Lego Star Wars with Foos just since there's so many SRZ StarWars costume there! (Disguises FTW!!). Dunno what I'm doing the third day.

I'm psyched about what I'm wearing and what everyone else is wearing - everyone's plans sound awesome or hilarious or both! :)

Just in case anyone wants to know, I was the Bird of Paradise and Sadako last time. (Fond memories of riding the elevator as Sadako, and getting Foos with the "7 days" thing on her cell phone XD.....)

I cannot wait to see Lego star wars characters running around! Though I don't know if I'll actually be able to see that well while inside my Insane-O-Flex costume. I'll have my people take pics of your people :bigtu:

I too remember going down the elevators... it was interesting doing so while wearing my A.W.E.S.O.M.-O. costume. I still ponder at how I was able to fit.

10-25-2007, 12:19 AM
wheee I may be there (if all goes according to plan)

My friend Pete and I wanted to go this year since our apartment complex was only like 10 minutes away from the convention center but we both ended up working crazy shifts for the Mouse (WDW college program) and didn't have a coinciding day off :/

Juego
10-27-2007, 09:04 PM
Another O-Town resident here, so yeah, I'm going. I think I can convince my boss to give me the Friday off.*

I'll be the red Team Fortress 2 medic, so I'm looking forward to the RvB shoot that MakioTwist just posted.

*I work for myself. XD

Foos
10-27-2007, 10:58 PM
Yep, Lego Star Wars will definitely be awesome. I've always wanted to make a jedi costume, but wasn't compelled to do so until I watched Spookloops play LSW. Hopefully we can figure out a way to spill blocks when someone hits us. XDDDD

Also, not doing Legend of Hyang Chung for Mega, since those costumes are flowy enough to save for a summer con. Instead, I'll be half of a Tokyo Babylon group cosplaying new outfits from a recent Newtype cover. XD Along with my roommate, who is always the Syaoran to my Sakura cosplays <333

11-05-2007, 08:48 PM
Eheheheheheheheheheh.......I still haven't started Aeris.
I mean, c'mon! It's a simple enough costume, I have great patterns, good fabric, all I need are some buttons and maybe a bit more thread.
So why haven't I started?

I swear, I'll at least make an attempt at starting after all of these school projects are finished. Really, I will.


Other than that, no new plans.....darn.


And I can't wait to se the Lego StarWars Group!

SunakoChan
11-05-2007, 09:53 PM
I've just started on my Insane-O-Flex costume. I'm really excited about how this costume is going to work out. I hope that some people will actually like it :) If it turns out well then I *might* enter the costume contest.

Where do you live? I would be coming from Jacksonville, I know it's a short drive from there (not many stops) but if you are in the path I would be more than willing to give you a ride.

This year am working on a puppet zombie gaara...BTW i need help with the costume part......

Also i live in kissimmee if anyone need a ride just ask.... IF you pay for gas ill pick you up anywhere you need me to go.....(with in reason)

11-08-2007, 08:27 PM
Heh, I'm up for the Nintendo vs Final photo shoot. =P I know a few people who'd like to be a part when more details are planned. ^_^

Five days off for Thanksgiving next week.
I'll most likely spend those fighting the buttonhole stitch on my machine DX
And when I'm done with that, studying for the SAT's.....

I really want to make more than one costume for Mega this year, but I'm not sure what to do that I would have time and money for. Most likely Miho from the ParaPara Allstars, if I can.

I'm going, I always go to Megacon XD It was my first con many years ago, so it's special =D

My group of friends is attempting to come back again next year. For those who went to 07, I was the Demyx with the huge group of Organization XIII members. We spent a good chunk of the con upstairs posing for pictures and meeting up with other Kingdom Hearts cosplayers. It was loads of fun!

Anyways, the group's trying to go back, and we're crossing Org XIII with the various job classes from Ragnarok Online. There's a list of our costumes in my costume list.

I saw you guys XD. I don't know if you remember, but I was one of two girls wearing an Axel shirt, and I took your picture XD.

First, congrats on becoming a CP - it's a good experience. I'm still there at the Mouse Kingdom, working the Emporium. But I live a bit closer to the OCCC...in fact, I am looking at it right this second.

So...safe to say I will be going. I would offer room space but it's all rented out.

I'll be going as Lei-Lei from Darkstalkers with my group. Also trying to get Arita Forland done in time. It'll be close. See you guys there!

Did someone say 'Hokuto no Ken'. aka 'Fist of the North Star ??? I'm down!! I just don't think I am big enough to pull off a Raoh. I am tan enough and I do workout (Thank you Spartans!). Thinking of a Toki at some point, but still need to get that one off the group.

Shoulder armor isn't to hard to pull off. Themoform some sintra or plactic or just grab a 10 gallon empty paint bucket and cut out the shape you need. Hot glue some craft foam for some thickness, seal the foam with guesso and prime the plastic. Paint that and mount with velcro or snaps. Thats a brief run down, but there are some links and resources around here that can help.


Can you tell I am excited about this?! :D

Thanks for the tips. The main reason why we need to do this is because I NEVER see any Hokuto cosplays at all and it is very dissapointing.

12-03-2007, 02:16 PM
HERE HERE!! Not to many folks ever cosplay this. Yet, if you ask them they will tell you they have seen the movie.

Now, pulling of Raoh is going to be a challenge, armor wise. I'm not even talking about the helmet either. Should armor is a little funky, but the knee pads pull everything together. Oh the hell with it I'll try some plastic, cardboard, hotglue and some fiber glass(if I can get some) and see what happens.

I have been beating around the bush on this one, but you only live once.

Getting a Lin shouldn't be too hard since her outfit doesn't require a whole lot.

Also this is the jacket I plan on using http://www.leatherup.com/p/Mens-Leather-Jackets/Classic-Mens-TOP-GRADE-Biker-Motorcycle-Jacket/40176.html. I just need to cut the sleeves then sew afterwards. Also this same site also has a nice cheap pair of leather pants as well that I will be using.

if there's no zipper, then definitely. just hack it off and turn down for a decent hem...just beware it's not too thick if there's fluffy stuff inside cause sewing machines eat them...*gives sewing machine evil looks...*

As for Saturday plans, my group kind of flopped. I will be in my Plug Suit and hopefully have my Misato with me.
I'm hoping that I'm not the only Hellsing and NGE cosplayer. But I know I'll be the only Strike Witches cosplayer since it's an odd anime that no one's probably heard of =P

(and dont say coupons dont help, i spent $30 on fabric today, then used my coupon on it and it came down to about $18. big savings, mostly when youre poor) and for those of you who dont know, joanns has 50% off a single item coupons (if you buy more than a yard of fabric, it counts for all the fabric, just not one tyard. or so it did for my 40% off one) for next week and weekend, one for each. so stop by and pick some up!

That looks wiked awsome,if i see you i will have to ask you how you learned to draw like that,cause my drawing is a bit rusty.Nice work on the costume though

Thank you very much!
Just lots of practice and visuwal.
I started drawing anime around 2003 and I have a goal to where I draw 4-5 pics a week. It keeps me going. ^^ Its fun to do when your bored.
I came up with Anti-Alrait after coloring in the cloak once and I was like "Anti-Altair!" So now its my new cosplay. xD
I hope some people will guess who I am, once I`m next to my brother. ^^;

that bellastrix one sounds interesting.

and that does look good prota-girl. i cant draw at all, unless its a design for a car i have, then i can only draw side views.

and i have some good news and some bad news. the bad news is, i wont have my car with me *cries dramatically* the good news is my dad might be coming! since spring break is the week of the convention, my family decided that wed all go to orlando for the weekend so i can go to the convention, so theyll be paing for my room, and if my dad can get off of work, hell be there, and he loves anime conventions. he goes crazy over the costumes and loves the panels.

My other buddies are also doing a guilty gear cosplay. Mostly the reason Im doing Jam. One is going as A.B.A and the other Bridget. Im still figuring out what my other friend can go as. Were pretty much making a small GG group. If anyone wants to join that would be cool. :]
So can't wait!!! :D

01-15-2008, 09:04 AM
I suppose it's high time I actually posted in here. :3

I'm (very hopefully) going all three days this time around. I'm very excited! I think I have my final three costumes planned, but I'm not sure yet when I'm wearing each. I'll have Mikoto Suo for a School Rumble group (I really need to watch the series at some point...), an EverQuest II Fae (still deciding on what combination of hair, wings, skin, and armor I'm going for) and, what I look forward to most, Gambit (in the outfit he wears during his 2004 mini-series, similar to the one in some slightly older X-Men). I was going to hold off a year but my mom sent me money for Christmas with the condition that I use part of it for my Gambit contacts. I'm still a bit apprehensive about trying to crossplay someone so manly when I haven't got crossplaying down, but hey, I have to give it a shot some time!

I'm hoping to have a Rogue (in the outfit she's seen briefly in in the above mini-series) and maybe a Cyclops with me. I might also bring along Charlie for some photos and maybe Daniel if my friends drag out other Sandman costumes.

Sometimes I hate college, but at least I have Fridays off so I can get there bright and early Friday. :3

01-15-2008, 09:23 AM
An Everquest 2 Fae! Omg that's awesome, I can't wait to see it!
I have a half elf troubador on everquest 2.^^

Kitsune
01-15-2008, 09:30 AM
Seriously? Man, it's so hard to find EQers anymore! I currently play two Wood Elf rangers, a Ratonga brigand, and a Ratonga swashbuckler, and I'm rolling up a Fae swashbuckler soon. XD Granted, I have little time for the game and just came back after a year-long absense, so my levels are... really low.

My friend is also likely coming as a High Elf Swashbuckler. I corrupted her to the Scout side of life. :3

Frostmourne
01-15-2008, 10:45 AM
Played EQ1 then switched to EQ2. I've always wanted to cosplay one of the gods of Everquest and walk around with a targeting sign over my head. Though my husband thinks I'm silly, which I am. XD

01-15-2008, 11:08 AM
Well, at least I got you playing Ragnarok in return, Kitsune XD I was planning on finishing my high wizard for Megacon, but now she's got me talked into doing my EQ high elf, so I might wait till a convention later this year. Otherwise... working on Akira Takano for our School Rumble group, hopefully Rogue to go with Kitsune's Gambit, and possibly Osaka from Azumanga Daioh. We'll see how things turn out money- and time-wise >< XD Otherwise, I'm excited to go to Megacon for the first time! Woo hoo!!

Wow a Gambit cosplay I never seen a GB cosplay before a female one at that.
which day do you plan on wearing it?

Seras Victoria is all set for Saturday complete with Hcanon if I can complete it in time, and Edward Elric complete with Alphonse Armor if the person I comissioned can get it done in time.

I'm getting so excited for Megacon! I'm almost done Suigintou' s underdress (Rozen maiden), and am starting on the overskirt.

I have the fabric for my sister's Raspberry Tart, so I've gotta get going with that so that Strawberry Shortcake will have some company. And her Risa needs to get some attention too so Riku isn't twinless (DN.Angel). Yay for having family to instantly fill in gaps with other characters.

I've got a sewing group meeting every wednesday now so hopefully it'll keep me on track since I have 10 costumes to make before August!!

Kitsune
01-16-2008, 01:16 PM
beatrix -- Ah, I played the original EQ, too. XD I was even worse at leveling then... but I was also twelve when it first came out and just played on my father's account and liked protecting newbies more than leveling. Ah, the stories that come from these games.

The god cosplay would be awesome. XD


Ispher -- I'm not actually sure when I'm wearing any of these costumes yet; it will probably depend on when the others in the School Rumble group want to do said group. I might wear Gambit for part of the day after I change out of my Suo costume, and I'll definitely wear him for a full day another day.


That being said, I'm going to need to remind myself constantly to actually take care of my eyes properly. Nothing bad has happened yet (*knocks on a ton of wood*) but Megacon I'm looking at two to two and a half days of wearing sclera contacts for costumes. I'm bringing a gallon of eye drops. <_<

also, I am still thinking of costume ideas... my favorite ideas are either May from Guilty Gear or Quistis from final fantasy 8 as for video game characters.I also am thinking of trying Robin from Witch Hunter Robin or Mimiru from .hack//sign or maybe even Subaru from that show :)

so now is my planning time and I hope I can make it ^_^ . I would luv to join in a group if anyone wants me. it might make things alot easier lol... I'm such a newb at cosplay :p

so yea, maybe if anyone wants to chat with me about possible group openings or further help with costume, u can IM me on aim :) sn = m3playa55

rozen maiden cosplay! the series has been out for af few years now, but only recently have people been cosplaying it and watching it. i still want to do a sousei seki sometime this year though, and a jun with shinku doll.

and i wear contacts, so chances are ill have a bottle of solution if you need some. better to be prepared than to be caught off guard.

Sorry for the completely random and largely off-topic question...

Kitsune
01-17-2008, 07:44 PM
Much, much, much more than that. XD It's such a huge area, though, so sometimes it seems like there's fewer people.

If I got my numbers straight, they were estimating 22,000 attendees in 2006 (can't find /any/ numbers for 2007, though the estimations were at 20,000 in 2004). It's definitely not a small con. :3

And thanks to those offering eyedrops up already. XD Knowing my luck, I'll forget mine. >_> I'm actually having some difficulty with buying my current pair, though, and the current worst-case-but-possible scenario is me being out 300 dollars with no contacts to show for it. =/ Here's hoping things work out, but I'll still be bringing my all-black sclera for certain.

Gracias.Regarding the # of MegaCon ppl attending the event (whether they're pre-registered or just buy their tickets "at the door"), it's probably between 26,000 to 30,000, I think. I guess it's kinda equal to the # of attendees going to Dragon*Con, in Atlanta, GA, and/or the number of attendees attending Otakon in Baltimore, MD plus or minus several thousands. (Please Note: Otakon has had to implement a maximum attendee number count allowed in the convention building (only for 2005 & 2006, though) due to the fact that the BCC (http://www.bccenter.org/gallery/index.html) cannot "safely" hold more than 27,000 ppl in it at one time, & so it got limited in how many con-goers could actually go to the event and thus hindered its attendee growth in the following couple of years. However, the attendee limit was lifted in 2007.)

And I should hope this is a good con for wings (since I have to bear with Lilith's demon wings Saturday and Pitt's 5 foot over-compensating wingspan Sunday), but I will tell you this - do not go in the dealer's room. I know that the concourse is changing this year and I am not sure if that will offer us more space or not, I heard it should though.

I just about died....then ran around my department showing it to the other grad students: "See? I'm not making these conventions up!"

Borrowed a hacksaw from the geochemistry lab today.....hopefully it'll cut through my cheapo batting helmet! And OMG now I want to make Bishamon's armor's eyes light up....well, we'll see if that happens.

My Suigintou is about 1/3 to 1/2 way there. Never do a large amount of buttonhole stitch on an applique!! I spent about 25 hours on those stupid crosses--arg!! Anyway, wig is done, underdress is done, overskirt is almost done. Now it's mostly just the jacket and wings. And all the details. Hurrah.

im not doing a rozen maiden this time around, not enough time or money. also, what pattern did you use for your sousei seki? i so badly want to do her, but i dont know which pattern to use. but, maybe later in the year, or next year, ill have a rozen maiden cosplay. still want to do jun with a shinku doll as well.

and sintakz: alright, this is kindave old, and we were trying to make working air treks (no ones come up with anything yet, so i guess thats the main reason why we stopped posting in there) but in there there is instructions on how to make regular human powered AT's from a pair of skates. the link will be a myspace one, and i think it belongs to a kid from here, but it is version two because version one was unstable. anyway, that should help with your AT problem.

Thanks. I was thinking I'd have to be actually skating around the con as if I was riding normal skates

Still plugging away slowly on my project (damn you, momentarily being stuck in a pickle :p), but I've added two quick cheap costumes to the agenda, one costume so I can have something I won't die in and get a few laughs out of at mega, the other because I kind of need to come up with something for an event this weekend (also useful in the not-dying category).

If both end up non-fail since I'm working on the cheap and on the fly with these, I'll share and bring both to the con. One's a trap and the other's feral, if you want enigmatic hints.

^ OMG Spook....you found the mask you needed for what I think you're talking about?! YAY!

Bishamon armor is eating my life/money/apartment....although foamtastic glue is my new best friend.

Bird ate my apt. You can see in the background of one of my gallery pics: TT.TT Celes is being well-behaved, but then, I'm not home half the time to work on it. The mask is still pending - need to go to G's house so I can use secure internet. I'm afraid to buy anything on my current mooched connection. I don't anticipate a problem though.

I got my contacts~! You have no idea how bloody excited this makes me. They came yesterday, but I got in late from school so I couldn't try them on. I finally got a chance to and... GLEE. I love them so much. :3 Not anywhere /near/ as comfortable as my black sclera... but those did "break in" over time, and hopefully these will as well.

Now I should actually get some work done on the costume. >__> Actually, still have to practice dying techniques... Gambit's hard to get colors for. D: Silly jacket.

In other news, it looks like I'm probably jumping in on another group: Sandman~! I think I'm bringing Morpheus this year, if I can fix up the costume enough. I'm not certain anymore on the fate of the School Rumble group, and the Fae may not happen... so I'm back to square one with my costume schedule. >_>

A little bummed out. No plug suit for MegaCon. My friend who is handling the armour has become very busy and won't be able to fully work on it until after MegaCon... all we can do on it at the con. is mark the sizes of everything. :: sigh :: I will hopefully have my secret costume and Rocker Asuka. Sorry to anyone who was looking forward to seeing my plug suit. I will be wearing it to Anime Expo though =)

Ugh....just did a quick and dirty run on my taxes...still owe the farking gov't $100. (Where they think this money is coming from, I have no idea....my happy butt most likely >.<) No tax-return costume fun for me! (And no PS2 for that matter T_T)

This pretty much puts Kendappa-ou on hold....so now my Sunday is open. Hrm...wonder what I should wear?

Update on the ambiguously gay duo costumes... I just need to get some masks, and a wig, and um jock straps >.> Now all I'm relying on is the shipping. Need to order that stuff soon or else no Ace and Gary for mega.

Where is all my money going? D: Finally picked up the fabric for Gambit - dropped about 100 dollars on it. Freaking jacket. <_< I've also picked up 15 decks of cards~! So, if anyone wants to play a card game, I should have some cards on me. XD

One month and change left! I need to start actual work on this soon.

For once I feel like I'm actually ahead of schedule, construction-wise, LOL. Although the Superbowl (and beer) is distracting me from cutting out tiny foamy kozane for Bishamon's armor. (new progress pic in my gallery if you're interested)

My armor for Rosa is almost finished! Just need to paint and bedazzle it. XP
One month away...I hope I'm not the only one not finished with their cosplays...

LoL I'm in the same situation, beer and all. I've got Ryo Sakazaki done for KOF Sunday, the Team Fortress 2 BLU Demoman for Saturday's RED vs BLUE should be done before the week's out... and if time permits, I should have my Friday costume ready just in time for the convention.

Don't worry, Temari, I'm not done yet either, and I've been working on this thing since June. TT.TT

In other news, San from Princess Mononoke is definitely a go for Mega. I had too much fun running around in it not to bring it!! Pics in the gallery for anyone that wants to see. I have to tweak a few things, but for the most part whatcha see is whatcha get. :)

My other costume besides San and Celes is still getting worked out, but I should know in a day or two if it's a Trap or not!

I got done a booty-load of leather work this past weekend for Pitt, which I really needed since I have to put a dent in his construction and be basically done by mid-month. Once I get all my leather paints I should be able to kick it into high gear. :D Still need to start on Lilith, and not hold off til last minute because that would not be good since I'm working with 2-way stretch vinyl for the first time ever...ugh.
