I'm glad there is still 3 weeks I have a costume to start and finish by then, plus put the finishing touches on others.

It's gonna be fun though!

Ready? Ha! I say unto you! And ha again!

The only costumes I have COMPLETELY ready are Cutey Honey's pink dress, Boogie Pop Phantom and Yomi from Azumanga Daioh.

Two costumes rely on making a new pair of white boots, and they will be ready: Merle Strife and Twilight Suzuka from Outlaw Star.

I have almost the entire costume to make yet for Natsuki from Hyper Police, although the semester is winding down at school, so I can stop teaching and start sewing!

I think I'll make it.

See you all there!

Grandis, YOMI? *flails about whilst beset with paroxysms of joy* I'll see you there in my Chiyo-chan...we'll have the height difference spot on.
*grins* I've got three costumes to complete before A-Kon...two commissions and the above-mentioned Chiyo....not to mention a fuckload of art and the fact I'm hitting ACen two weeks before. It'll all be done tho'....I've been this busy since Katsu.
Back to work....*works on a new illo*

NICE!!!!

I have Yomi's summer uniform. Can we get together for some photos, say Saturday or Sunday? Friday is all about Natsuki and Sakura with Kytty Pride, and then Cutey Honey in the LIFE LARP. What say you? :)

Happy that this happened!

Are you gonna have Natsuki and Sakura cosplays? *_* I'm going as Sakura... on Saturday, though, because I'm recycling the wig with my Inu Yasha cosplayer friend. ^^;; My God, I bet there'll be at least 15 Inu Yasha and Chii cosplayers this year. ^^;;

iya~n, three weeks! [worry worry]

I'm actually doing okay, thanks to my long sad job-hunting period here where I've been so frustrated I've done nothing in my free time but sew. XD The only costume that really needs work is Uematsu Koboshi. The rest is all touch-ups and finishes... I hope. ^_^

05-09-2003, 06:00 PM
I'm at least about 50% finished with my four new costumes... but none are completely done *_* still have to do repair and stuff to my old costumes I'm taking!! eeeeee!!

Space Invader
05-09-2003, 11:50 PM
O_o...

Being the fickle I am, I switched costumes. Yeah, I'm a dork. I have Vela half done (including her blaster), and I decide to do something else. *sigh*

I don't know if anyone will recognize me or not... I'll be Marron from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, in an outfit you see in one manga promo picture... it's all pink, black, gold, and silver, with little angel wings on the back (see attachment). I get to use my own hair though, so that's a plus. Cuts $30-$40 for a decent wig right there ^_^.

-Boots: Bought them on sale for $10 (whoo!), need to put the decos on (the decos will look similar to what's on the hat)
-"Metal" cuffs and chip pieces: Done. I painted some cabachon gems I never ever use silver for the studs and superglued them on the vinyl ^_^.
-Hat: Half done. Got the form all done, need to cover it with my black spandex and put the decos on. And little pieces so I can pin it in my hair (I don't do chinstraps).
-Cross pin: Done. Yay for Paperclay and superglue.

I still have to get white material and gloves, dye them pink (I'm dying them together so they turn out the exact same color), buy the gold ribbon-style lace for the trims, get black elastic, get two hair scrunchies (you know, the kind that have the curly-ish fake hair on them... I need them for the buns... I've got thick hair, but not ANIME kinda thick ^_^;; ), gold ribbon (for hat and boot decos), and a pattern I can mess with for the dress. I haven't mastered pattern-ing out very fitted garments like this one yet, I gotta get something I can tinker with ^_^. Socks will be easy... stretchy pink fabric (dyed pink with the rest of the material) with black elastic garters on the tops of them. I'm going to make the wings out of the BIG, broad white feathers. The little spiral pieces will be made out of something else, and then coverd with the tiny, short feathers (not fluffy). I don't know how I'm going to attach them, though... maybe I should PM Rosiel and ask how she does her harness set-up thingie... I all else fails, I'm gonna make a harness and use clear elastic on it so it doesn't stand out horribly.

I'm going to have to use my heat set spray stuff on my hair to get it to stick out and curl right. That stuff makes your hair stiff as a piece of cardboard... I'm not kidding. It's great for anime hair ^_^.

Yay. My boots have spike heels, so it should be fun to try and walk around in them all day...

I might do it one day, or at least on of Marons outfits.

>I love that outfit! Can't wait to see it. ^_^

I bought everything but the pink dye, gold trim, and hair scruchies today ^_^. Maybe I'll get those on monday...

BTW Ringo, you have any idea on how well nylon and/or polyester takes RIT dye? I got polyester gloves and nylon thigh-high stockings, but they need to be dyed with the rest of the material... if it doesn't work on the stockings I have a backup plan, but if it doesn't on the gloves, I'm screwed.

<-- *has tried to make her own gloves before and failed MISERABLY*

Ringo
05-10-2003, 10:38 PM
Well I haven't really dyed 100% polyester, but I have dyed lycra which is usually part polyester. It dyed MUCH lighter than the box color, even with a nice long soak. I needed cocoa brown it turned out a latte color. I would suggest dying the gloes with the pink dye you have and then if they are not dark enough trying it again with red dye.
If worse comes to worse than you could make gloves out of the material you used for the dress. They stink to make but it can be done, the secret is to make the thumb as a seperate piece. ^_^

Koumori
05-10-2003, 10:46 PM
Polyester tends not to take dye very well, because the fiber is essentially plastic, and really needs to have color put into it at the factory. You *may* be able to get it to take some color, but it won't take very deep, may rub off, and is generally a royal crapshoot. Only natural fibers can be dyed reliably.

ARRRRRGH! I still need to dye my fabric, sew up everything, make the hat, finish the cuffs (forgot about the damn edging), AND MAKE THE WINGS! *faints*

This weekend... I work. Insanely. No going out for me!

Sora...needs....keyblade...and everything....must work like insane mad girl! But at least my fursuit is done for mononoke's Ni. and I have a princess peachcostume that i've been slowly putting together. now all i gotta do is dye some fabric (poor space invader) and paint my shoes. im finally gonna walk in heels.

but i cant wear my lovely merle costume... it was my first cosplay and im too little to wear it now. i lost like 40 pounds since the beginning of the year and ...im happy..but MAD!!!!! i love merle! grrr...and my really neat meredy (tales of destiny II/tales of eternia) costume is so baggy....GRRR damn weight lose...its good but bad!

Space Invader
05-17-2003, 09:37 PM
I gotta redo my fabric ;_;. It came out with tie-dye effect cause my Mom wouldn't let me dye it in the washer like it's supposed to be done. I had to use a huge plastic bucket >_<.

Well, she's paying for more dye. At least it came out the right color overall.

Whew! Today I got my hat and my cuffs all done. Hopefully tomorrow I can start sewing the dress (if Mom decides to go buy me more dye tonight). I gotta get working on the wings, but I don't think they'll take too much time. I'm the hot glue gun master :D.

05-18-2003, 06:55 PM
AHHH! I redyed my fabric today and it came out great... it's all evenly colored now, thank goodness. I was starting to get quite irritated with it O_<.

I'm gonna start on the wings tonight (hopefully). I'm almost done with altering the dress pattern, not too much left to do on that. Once I have that done, I'm pretty much home free. It's easy after that... the dress is all straight seams, and the lace trim won't be hard to sew on. Gloves will be hand made, as sewing machines are the bane of all glove-making (yes, I have tried X_X).

Hooray.

Okay, my Preventers uniform is coming along nicely; skirt is done, jacket is about half-finished. Still need the arm patches and to whip up an ID badge, but that's what Photoshop is for.

Belldandy is done, of course.

Bring it on! I finished Natsuki last night.

Grandis' Costumes at Akon this Year

Friday: Natsuki from Hyper Police (2nd version of Uniform)
Cutey Honey (Pink and White Dress)

Saturday: Merle Strife from Trigun
Twilight Suzuka from Outlaw Star
Yomi from Azumanga Daioh
Boogie Pop from Boogie Pop Phantom

Nothing flashy like last year's Valkyrie from Valkyrie Profile, 'cause I'm making Pirotase for Anime Iowa, but that's what'll be there.

See you guys soon.

My costumes are done, but it's all a matter of WHEN I'll be wearing them. I'm pairing a few costumes up with a friend for pics, and mainly solo-cosplay for the weekend while dashing backnforth, taking pics. :) Here's my costume list:

Shinji
Saitou
King
Ohgami
Jann Lee (regular & DOAX version :skidude: )
Hibiki

See you all next week!!

I'm glad I got them already packed, since I've been also working on my big costume for Fanime, 3 weeks after a-kon. :thumbsup: So as soon as I got back from a-cen, i began packing for A-kon. I can't wait for it either.. ;)

Since I got my long brown wig in, my costume schedule has changed.
Early Friday: Chiyo from Azumanga Daioh [gomen, Grandis! That's when the group's happening..]
Late Friday: Angel from King of Fighters
Saturday: Garnet [long-hair version...finally!] from Final Fantasy IX
Sunday: Scherezard from War of Genesis III

Costumes may be switched around if I run into groups or whatnot, but those are the ones that are going.
Feel free to stop by my art table and say hello, and perhaps a few more words than that even.
I've still got so much art to do.....

DFW isn't to bad after you've done it a couple times. If you get lost people are pretty friendly and they can help you out. ^_^
The TRAAN is still slow as molases but it works!

On the costume front: I cut out and partly assembled last night. I'm not to worried about the costume not getting done. It's the wig I migh not have time to finish the way I want. But if I used my real hair I doubt anyone would care or notice. Whoohoo for unpopular manga/anime cosplay!

I HATE BEADS. Jesus Christ, it looks like a bomb went off in my room. Y'know, one of those bunker-buster ones. There is crap EVERYWHERE.

I barely have any walking space in there now cause of all the cosplay stuff. I maybe have about 3 square feet of VISIBLE carpet now (all the rest is taken up by furniture, cosplay stuff, and books - yay finals! *sarcasm*).

It's sad, really. When I'm not sleeping in it, my bed has just become yet another workspace. When I DO go to sleep, I just pitch everything onto the floor nearby ^_^. I'm so lazy ^_^;;.

You can't see the surface of my drafting table, it's being taken up by the hot glue gun, paints, brushes, various glues, gemstones, beads, and my armor plate. There are smears of gold metallic paint and red and pink glasspaint all over. Arrrr.... O_<

But my wig is pretty now! I'm so proud of it, it looks so much better than it did at Ushicon. It looks just like Hikaru's hair @_@. and you can see my ears! So you can see my heavy-as-hell earrings now! Whee! I used nearly a whole bottle of heat-set hairspray on it... the other half of the bottle was used on my hair at prom, lol.

Saturday PM- Orihime Revue dress
Sunday AM- Glycine Bleumer

So, yay, looks like a complete Sakura Wars weekend! I'm so excited- this is going to be so much fun!

It seems that Hyper Police will be on Saturday rather than Friday, which works a lot better for me.

Bollocks. I want to actually *make* a cosplay.com gathering for once, and if I have to hold everyone at knifepoint to make it during the evening sometime, I bloody will.

Sort of kidding. They wouldn't let me take a knife through the airport.

But really, if someone could be kind enough to arrange something after I'm done working my table [usually around 6-7, but anytime after 5 is all right], I'll be more than happy to join.
And what's this about a dinner? I'm arriving about 4pm Thursday, so if anyone sees me, please let me know what's going on.
Thank you. Dosvidanye.

Well, I guess I"m nearly ready for my first cosplay experience! ^_^
I read the A-kon weapon rule...does anyone know if a wooden sword counts as an illegal weapon???

katchoo: I can't wait to see your costumes!! I'll be sure to keep an eye out for you, else just find me and say hello! :) I might be busy both nights for dinner, but you can always stop by the "table gathering" that Admin, Aeris, and I plan to host on both nights during the concerts, dances, etc. Stop by and say hello, or hang-out if you have time!

Grandis: Good to see you again at A-kon, where we begin our run of meeting each other at one con after the other.. A-kon, Fanime, AX, and SDCC in 2002.. Hopefully we'll do that again this year!

Erika: This time for A-kon, if we have a cosplay.com gathering, I'll besure to come find you at your table, and hopefully someone (like Bill) can watch your stuff for a few mins. so that you can join us.

ayonoi & Die-chan: Don't stress out packing & finishing costumes! Thanks, Alma, for letting Die-chan room with you tomorrow night! You two don't stay up too late chatting about J-rock! hehe I will see you two FR morning..

EVERYONE: Admin and I still haven't decided if we're having a COSPLAY.COM gathering this weekend, but we might, and if so, it'll be on Saturday.. To my knowledge, there isn't going to be a dinner gathering, but afterwards, there will be a "table gathering" where Admin and I set up a table, and showcase cosplay.com, and I usually print out pictures of the day's cosplayers, and blast the Eurobeat music away! :skidude2: We plan to do this for both nights (Fr night will be after 9pm and Saturday is sometime after the masquerade madness ends..) If enough members stop by the table, we could have an informal gathering there for pics (if people are still in costume) but I shall talk to Admin, and we'll try to find a place & time for the OFFICIAL cosplay.com gathering/photoshoot sometime on SATURDAY. Just ask me or Admin during the con, and I'll keep you posted..


I still have to finish packing myself, and cut lots of hair for my Saitou, Hibiki, and King costume.. I have to finish EVERYTHING by tonight, because once I get home after work, the shuttle is coming for me, and I hardly have time to eat, shower, and then BAM! off to SFO.. :thumbsup: But I should be ready in time. I'll be arriving at the hotel at 4:30am, dead-tired, so I may sleep for a few hours before walking around. Once the con goes, I'll be in full con-mode! See you all there Friday morning!! :D
