10-16-2007, 04:47 PM
Are you ready?

10-16-2007, 06:06 PM
I'm ready in every term except for having all my costumes finished. XD They're well on their way though so I'm not stressed over it.....yet. >__>

I can't wait! This will be my first Youmacon, after having always been too broke to go for the last couple years. >_<

AAAAAAND, I'm all done with my cosplays~ ^.^ THAT MAKES ME WARM AND FUZZY ON THE INSIDE.

10-16-2007, 07:51 PM
16 DAYS!? THOSE AREN'T THE WORDS THAT I DON'T WANT TO HEAR RIGHT NOW!!!! AHHHHH!!! I ain't ready yet!!! I still have to get this... and that.. finish this project... I would say what it is... but I'm can't say what it is cause I'm on YoumaCon Staff... (as the videographer of course)... Just expect me to ballz out this year!!!!

10-16-2007, 07:59 PM
And 0 costumes done out of 5. One's a commission as well. Where did this time go?!

10-16-2007, 08:04 PM
Gah! I am so not close to being where I want in terms of costume completion. *sigh* I might just have to recycle a costume, which would make me sad...

10-16-2007, 08:20 PM
lol I'm with most people...need to finish costumes :rolleyes: this is my first convention and I'm very excited :)

Good luck finishing costumes everyone!! :)

I wish now that I didn't pick so many complicated costumes for this one. Costume progress:

Komui Lee (D.Gray-Man) - 50%
Genis Sage (Tales of Symphonia) - 25%
Luke von Fabre (Tales of the Abyss) - 20%
Kaiba Seto (YuGiOh) - 0%

Costume Commission:

Rikku (FF10?) - 0%

Luckily, all material is bought. I'm still waiting for some items to arrive from ebay, like my wigs. I get to style 2/3 once they arrive. I just hope they arrive since one is coming from Hong Kong, the other is coming from the UK.

Still have to finish my big gun. Can't wait!

I cannot wait for Youma to come. IT CAN"T COME SOON ENOUGH!!! I am really excited cuz this will be my first cosplay. My one and only costume is very close to completion.

10-17-2007, 09:57 AM
OMG What is wrong with you and why did you make this post.


10-17-2007, 02:08 PM
Um, well I started remaking a costume today, and surprisingly, the sewing part is almost done. After that, I need to paint some designs on it which shouldnt take more than a week. My new Urahara coat is complete and Im quite pleased with it. I hope the new wig pleases me too, or just makes the fan girls scream,lol. There are a few costumes that I almost know for sure wont get finished, but there's always another con.

Ive heard lots of great things about Youmacon, and Im so excited.

10-17-2007, 03:01 PM
AH CRAP... I think seeing the actual number makes me feel a lot more stressed than saying "Oh it's still more than 2 weeks away."

I need to sew -_-;;;

10-17-2007, 04:09 PM

Hahaha, I am definitely not ready. Still need to finish my outfit. ;o;
Good luck to everyone.

10-17-2007, 07:32 PM
XD I'm reusing a couple costumes I used for A-kon..another I have finished, the other I'm working on :3 so I think I'm pretty well timed right now!

10-17-2007, 08:14 PM
No, no, no, no, no, no, no! I'm excited, but not near being ready! I still have to get one of my dresses altered, hem a skirt, and strengthen and harness my wings! Oh no!

Wait, Youmacon is less than 2 weeks? Uh..... O gawd.... :eek:

10-18-2007, 11:10 AM

*does Shin-chans ass dance*

10-18-2007, 11:47 AM
Gah, the sewing machine may be coming with me... >>;

10-18-2007, 02:41 PM
My costume is not even close to being done. ;_; I really hope I can pull everything together in time!

Besides not having my costume ready, I'm SO excited for Youma! It's easily one of my favorite cons and I can't wait to see everyone!

10-18-2007, 06:13 PM
My FFX Rikku and Berserker Rikku are finished (if I can stop fiddling with every detail). I just have to finish my boyfriend's Jin costume (samurai champloo). I am really excited! I had a blast last year.

Yay! almost done with my costumes, although knowing me i'll prolly pull another almost allnighter finishing them at the last minute >_<

10-19-2007, 11:34 AM
This is where I freak out, since I took apart both of my major costumes and haven't had a chance to put them back together. Damn you school! Two midterms next week and an essay due the Monday after the con. :: shakes fist and cries ::

10-19-2007, 11:38 AM
I neeeeed to stop slacking off on my last costume..

plus I need to restyle all my wigs >_> oops..well..well I'll do it at the latest the day before I go :D;

10-19-2007, 03:20 PM
Oh god, I still need to style my wig, work out the kinks in the Spandex Superstructure O' Doom, get a pedicure (will be walking around barefoot), change my Canuck Bucks to Benjamins, PACK...

Is there anything I have done...?

10-19-2007, 04:57 PM
I'm about 75% done one costume, and about 50% done my either.
I'm more stressed about a Halloween commission I have due, argh.

This weekend I should force myself to tame my first costumes wig and cut the second, and go footwear shopping.
I really should get a manicure and my eyebrows done too. I'll have to devote 1 of the 16 days left to the spa. I like that better than sewing xD

10-19-2007, 05:30 PM
I was hoping to make Lobster Shirt Link, and RE 2 leon for Youmacon but school has been really kicking my ass this semester. So I'll just have to give OoT Link, and RE 4 Leon another run. They're always fun to wear so I dont mind.


10-19-2007, 06:54 PM
Heys guys! I'll join the whole "doesn't quite have everything s/he planned for Youmacon finished by con" crowd", lol. Well just touchups and things really - all major stuff is going to take longer than these few days to get together anyway.

Not necessarily trying to spam the thread or anything but since I'm the main staff photographer for the con, feel free to say hi and I can get your photo sometime during the crazy weekend!

I'm going to steal what Doug said...

I'm the videographer for YoumaCon, feel free (well not really) to drag me to randon locations when there's random stuff going on during the con..

Also... here's what I'm bringing..


10-19-2007, 09:14 PM
Successfully styled all four of my wigs today! Now to dye my costume the proper shade of blue D:

10-20-2007, 01:12 PM
Wait....I forgot.

I still have to learn how to play poker. D:

10-21-2007, 07:15 AM
Got half of one costume to finish and a full week of work ahead... IT WILL BE DONE *pumps fist*

10-24-2007, 08:14 PM
OH CRAP! Youmacon is only a week away! (for me)

10-26-2007, 06:08 AM
As of this morning, I only have to finish sewing together one pair of pants, sew a fly into the other, put a couple straps on a coat, and cuffs on some boots. I'll probably do all of that within the next 24 hours, except for the boot cuffs. I feel pretty awesome now.

10-27-2007, 06:07 AM
Eeep! I still have a skirt to finish for Orhime and stuff to get for Mako. I doubt I'll have time to repair my Excel costume. Come to think of it I might have only two decent costumes for this con. I could bring Matsumoto but I'd be really thrown together.

10-27-2007, 04:03 PM
I'm ready!

I'm finish with my costume.
I'm finish my list on what I need to bring.
And my car is in top condition (just got my sticker, oil change and car rotated).


10-27-2007, 07:15 PM
I'm out of styling glue, I need to go get some for the scrunching of the back of L's head...

Mostly done cutting. So many splinters.

10-28-2007, 10:20 AM
4 days! Ready NOW?

10-28-2007, 01:35 PM
No. I'm Not Ready Now. Agh!
