Feeling the pangs of con-withrawal syndrome after missing both AnimeBoston AND Otakon... I think I'll be coming to NYAF this year :) It will be my first NYAF!

Anyway, the point of this thread. Any Macross Frontier cosplayers out there? :D

I will be Ranka Lee in her orange/yellow stage outfit (the one she wears for the first time at the Miss Macross contest) on Saturday~!

If my friend decides to come and finishes her Sheryl in time, we`ll have a Sheryl as well~


Meetup: Saturday, 12PM, in front of Starbucks inside Javits, will relocate for shoot.

Chiyo sen
07-21-2009, 04:27 PM
Yay! Im so glad there are oher people doing macross frontier! I'm also going as Ranka in her concert outfit! =3

*mik0 muffin !
07-21-2009, 04:59 PM
yaay there are other macrossfers~! :)

what version of klan, megasoups?

and hee ranka twins ftw, Chiyo sen :D

Chiyo sen
07-21-2009, 08:56 PM
Haha, yep. Now all we need are two Sheryls XD. I was going to try and get my friend to do Alto, but she hasnt seen macross frontier... I wonder if there will be a lot of Macross frontier cosplay, I've only ever seen two macross cosplays irl. ;_; haha. I'll be doing Ranka on Friday probably. Will you be there all three days *mik0 muffin?
I can wait to see your Klan MegaSoups! I've never seen a Klan klan in real life before. ^.^

07-21-2009, 09:07 PM
-squee- Macross F cosplayers 8D :heart:.

I may be going as Sheryl, but it's still uncertain x:
If my Vocaloid cosplay doesn't pull through for Friday then hopefully I'll be going as Sheryl xD.

If all fails then I'll want to find you gais and ask for pics or maybe a quick photoshoot ? :B <3.

*mik0 muffin !
07-21-2009, 10:53 PM
i`m actually only going to be there on Saturday =T, and Ranka is my only cosplay. aww...i would have loved to meet a Ranka twin! i actually haven't seen any macrossf cosplay in rl...then again i havent been to any conventions/meetups since before macrossf aired so that might be the reason lOL xP.

please please is there any way you guys could be in macrossf on saturday, at least for a little while~? ^.^; haha..i honestly dont have the money to go both days =.=;;

Chiyo sen
07-21-2009, 11:24 PM
@ Hoshikorosu Yay sheryl! lol I love vocaloids X3 I was thinking about bringing my Miku cosplay. Haha.
We should all get together for a photo shoot! It would be of fun! =D
Oh and *mik0 muffin, I wouldn't mind doing Ranka on Sat. For a bit. ^_^ I want to meet a Ranka twin too! It would be great if we could all meet up sometime on Saturday...

*mik0 muffin !
07-22-2009, 12:48 AM
yaay, there's a greater chance my friend will be coming as Sheryl now! =D~ and yesyes, a photoshoot would be much much fun! i`m also currently learning both the song and dance of Seikan Hikou. and by then maybe i`ll know even more Ranka songs, and Sheryl's songs too, why not xD. It's quite IC for Ranka to cover Sheryl's songs anyway =D

should we decide on a time/place as the con gets closer, or do you guys already have a time/place in mind that would be convenient for you? =]

07-22-2009, 11:00 AM
I am doing her battle suit version

Chiyo sen
07-22-2009, 11:41 AM
I'm learning the Seikan Hikou dance too! Hehe ^_^ I've been learning her songs too! yaaayy! I dont have any particular place in mind...mostly anywhere is fine with me!
Oh, is anyone else here on long island? I was just wondering... haha. I might just come to the con as Ranka, and then change after our photoshoot. =3
Yay! MegaSoups, sounds awesome! Im looking forward to seeing you! ^.^

*mik0 muffin !
07-22-2009, 01:33 PM
Cool, megasoups :D

I've never been to NYAF so i dont know how things are arranged, tho i have been to the javits center before for another event lOL. Heh, I'm from Staten Island =P Anyhoo sure =] what do you think about shooting at an outdoor spot? you can pick a time that gives you enough time to change and wear your other cosplay for a comfortable amt of time, Chiyo sen =]

lOL, i hope theres more than the 3 or 4 of us there =P

07-22-2009, 07:40 PM
Hm, I really am tempted and wanting to cosplay Sheryl now LOL. And yeah, I think we should try to pick a time when the full schedule comes out ^^.

I think an outdoor spot would be nice. I wonder if we can have access to the top of the convention center o.o! That would be really neat ~

And for the photoshoot would you guys mind me being the photographer (or perhaps one of many lol!) ? XD I'd love to practice cosplay photography XD;;.

Chiyo : Ah, I'd love to see your Miku cosplay 8D.

*mik0 muffin !
07-22-2009, 08:25 PM
*nudges Hoshikorosu* yessss you should cosplay sheryl~! *nodnod* xD

the roof? that would be absolutely amazing. i don't know if we're allowed to, leaning towards probably not =T. some sort of safety code lOL. unless there are high enough railings...ahh i really wish we could shoot up there now that you mention it! xD. and now i`m also trying to think of macrossf-able spots in the city for photoshoots...

and of course you can take the role of photographer too~! i looked at your flickr link. that's you behind the camera, ne? pretty nice shots! :D

07-22-2009, 08:36 PM
Haha, okay I will ^^. Hopefully I can bring a bigger bag with me to the con so I can switch costumes and I really need to start sewing soon X: or at least make the pattern, lol xD.

I think the Hudson river is right by the convention center, maybe we can take some pics over there? LOL, and I hope we can go up there~ it would be really cool to have some shots on the roof top :3

yay, awesome > w<. and thank you ~

Chiyo sen
07-23-2009, 04:01 PM
Yay Sheryl! lol. I would love to have it on the roof! I hope we can get up there too. haha. Oh and Hoshikorosu, your pictures are awesome! I love KHR, haha. I looked at your flicker page ^.^ I cant wait to have you as our photographer!

07-23-2009, 08:37 PM
Let's hope so ^^
Aw, thanks :). I'm still learning but hopefully I can learn as I (photo) shoot more XD LOL.

Can't wait! And hopefully we'll see more Macross F cosplayers :>

Chiyo sen
07-26-2009, 12:43 AM
I hope we see more too!
I'm very tempted to just make Alto's cosplay and make my friend wear it. She'd be such an awesome Alto lol. I wonder if we'll see any... If we're going to have lots of Sheryls and Rankas we need at least one Alto lol.

*mik0 muffin !
07-26-2009, 03:37 PM
lOL that would be one lucky Alto now wouldnt it ;D ahahaa.

I finally got all the necessary materials for Ranka! woot~ now to actually construct all the pieces lOL..so far all i have is the underskirt =T

07-26-2009, 03:53 PM
Haha definitely one lucky Alto XD.

Lol, awesome at least it's some progress, mik0 :).

I'm currently drafting a pattern for Sheryl's star date outfit, and I'm so n00b at this, it's not even funny D': lol.

*mik0 muffin !
07-27-2009, 01:36 AM
Heeeee yaaay Hoshi, I see Sheryl is officially on your sig under NYAF =D!! [/dork] =P

Aww, you can do it! *cheers you on* I wish I could help you! but my only advice is to take an old long sleeve shirt, cut it off at the shoulders, and then see how all the pieces look like, cutting apart the seams too if you wanna use those pieces to guide your tracing. And then expand the sleeve/torso pieces as needed to make it baggy? Yeah i have no clue about patterns...i always rely on old clothes/trial and error on pieces of scrap fabric, like old bedsheets or somethin ahaha xP~

07-27-2009, 09:24 AM
Yeah, she is 8D hehe. I dropped one cosplay since just 3 in one day is going to be crazy and I'll be commuting too so that's just out of the question.

Haha thanks, hopefully it'll go well. That sounds like an awesome idea! xDD
I actually went to a thrift store and bought a really neat baggy t-shirt with the same color as her base and was about to snip off the top parts and add in the darker colored bands, but nope ._. my mom had to jump in and tell me the stitches were different, fabric was different, etc, etc so that was a no-go. But oh well, I'm using it as sleepwear haha!

*mik0 muffin !
07-27-2009, 10:31 PM
Aww, ahaha. I'm sure it'll turn out fine, in any case! =]

lOL, my package from we love colors arrived today, with thigh-highs for my friend's and my M:F cosplays =D Tho when she first told me i got a package, i thought it was my Ranka wig and got SUPER excited, but alas that wig wont arrive for another week or so, earliest =T Ah well, i`m still excited xD

07-27-2009, 10:36 PM
Yeah, thanks haha ^^. I worked on it the entire day... I just need to add on the strip things and I'm done! I had to redo the sleeves like 123421432 times D: LOL.

LOL aw. At least you got something for Ranka 8D ~
I bet your wig will be awesome :'3.

Random - I told my friend to watch MF a week ago and now she's almost done with it xD hurray!

*mik0 muffin !
07-27-2009, 10:47 PM
YAY for diligence~! *claps* =]

Kehe, I sure hope so!! I ordered this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120445015632&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT
There was a nicer one but it was $10 more...so I crossed my fingers and went cheaper ^.^;

Yay~! Convert more to M:F! 8D ahaha~ My Sheryl is a friend I bugged to watch M:F and now she's cosplaying so xD. We need to keep spreading the M:F love!

07-27-2009, 11:51 PM
Oh man, I was thinking of putting together Alto (school uniform) but wearing in on Friday! D: (gona be Suzaku on Saturday)

*mik0 muffin !
07-28-2009, 12:04 AM
Uwaaah, einobaka! ='O we so very much need an Alto~! ...is there any chance you could bring it and change...? That would be totally too awesomee..~ We're trying to plan our meetup early on Saturday so ppl can change into other planned cosplays for the rest of the day...but we haven't figured anything definite yet heh.

Chiyo sen
07-28-2009, 12:21 AM
I feel like Ive missed so much... haha. I believe in you Hoshikorosu! Sort of unrelated but, I don't use patterns... they sort of confuse me. ^^;; Haha. We do need an Alto! einobaka, it would be great if you could be Alto for a bit. ^^ Oh, I dunno if this matters, but I was thinking of making Ranka's Nyan nyan restaurant uniform thing to wear on Saturday.... Since Im already doing her concert outfit on Friday... Im not sure yet. I just want an excuse to carry around a cute lunch box I think. lol. *mik0 muffin, that was the same wig I was thinking about getting! It was between that, or styling one myself XD. Im still not sure yet, Im always a bit nervous about ebay sellers... Haha ^^;

07-28-2009, 12:33 AM
Mik0 : Ooo looks nice :).
Haha yes, spread the love <3. It's such an awesome anime D':

Chiyo : Haha, just call me Hoshi. Username is too long * A* LOL. Eh? Really? Haha, I think I would be in a mess of fabric and thread if I didn't have a pattern or at least something of a pattern to work with X: lol. Aw! Eeek, you should really do her Nyan Nyan outfit, so cute ~ ! ^ o^.

And I was actually looking for some Ranka wigs or something that would work with a gender bender Ranka (lol don't ask) and I stumbled upon this wig (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150352141748&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT) - it's amazingly cheap and from the looks of the pic you can just style the doggy ears onto the wig and it's perfect o__O

07-28-2009, 10:55 AM
wow! this thread is busy XD. Tomorrow I will start on my costume and my friend said he will be Bobby! XD.

*mik0 muffin !
07-28-2009, 12:46 PM
Haha, Chiyo, I agree patterns are rather confusing! That's why I always go the route of trial/error on scrap fabric and/or butchering old store-bought clothes xD; And hmmnnn...depending on the schedule for Friday I MAY end up going then too! But I have class until 5pm so =T we'll see. I think I just want an excuse to make another cosplay xDD. The restaurant uniform is so cute! I think my next Ranka outfit would be the school uniform, the one that Alto, Nanase and everyone go to, brainfart can't think of the name rite now =P. Anyway, Chiyo, if my wig comes in soon I can let you know how the quality is =]

Hoshi, that wig looks pretty nice~! Quite a bright green on my monitor lOL. And it's relatively inexpensive =DD

xD Yaay, megasoups! Good luck with yours, and yay for a Bobby cosplayer~!

07-28-2009, 12:52 PM
mik0 : LOL! it is ~ ;O

And I'm finally done with Sheryl's outfit xD. It's so... bad though, haha.
But it'll do X:

Chiyo sen
07-28-2009, 05:10 PM
Yeah, I've just always made things from scratch lol. Yay for trail/error! lol I like that uniform! I love most uniforms, hehe. I hope you can come on Friday! I only have class until 1, So I plan on coming right after. That would be great! When you get it let me know! =3
Hoshi, that wig looks very green, but still usable in my opinion. ^_^ I might end up getting it. ^.^ I'm sure its a lovely cosplay! I cant wait to see it!

*mik0 muffin !
07-28-2009, 05:12 PM
=D yay Hoshi! Do you have a pic? I'm sure it's perfectly fine =D

Waah almost done with my orange skirt~! just need to hem and fix up raw edges~ I had fun swishing around in my petti and skirt xDD

07-28-2009, 05:53 PM

Chiyo : Yay, awesome n__n.

mik0 : I think I might end up re-doing the outfit in the near future D': but yeah, I'll probably polish some stuff here and there and just leave it the way it is xD. Hurray for almost completing the orange skirt XD.

07-28-2009, 06:18 PM
That could be a possibility xD the only thing is I work at a booth, so I may not have enough time for both depending how far apart the shoots are from each other, although I do see a possibility of it happening! The Clamp shoot doesn't have a set time yet so hopefully it's sometime around the afternoon so I can lounge in Alto a bit longer :3

*mik0 muffin !
07-28-2009, 06:46 PM
Awww Hoshi, great work, such a cute sheryl =] seems like you finished it so fast too!

Ohh, Alto-hime manning a booth is cute enough! xDD. Hmmn, oof I just wish we had a better idea of NYAF scheduling! What do you guys think of tentatively setting our M:F shoot at noon on Sat.? I have no clue about location though =O Unless we're really allowed on the roof =P

07-28-2009, 07:35 PM
Yay Alto ~ 8D.

mik0 : thank you > O<// and yeah, amazingly haha!
i had nothing to do that day, so i sewed for like 10+ hours x__X; LOL. i can't wait to see your ranka :3

07-28-2009, 07:38 PM
Haha, I'll try my best not to snub guests :P

Noon sounds good to me :3 I like the roof idea as well, although I don't think we can go up there xD However! We could potentially settle for some high stairs somewhere in the convention center (there's pleny of those around).

07-28-2009, 07:53 PM
High stairs sound good. I think we'll manage to find some decent locations in the center xP lol. Can't wait.

*mik0 muffin !
07-28-2009, 08:31 PM
Hee yay~ So how about we meet up at some easily-identifiable spot in the con center then move elsewhere? Where could we gather? I wanna put our Macross:F shoot on the list of shoots/gatherings thread ahaha.

07-28-2009, 08:39 PM
Gah, hopefully the Hitman Reborn! shoot won't conflict with noon's schedule X:

And the first thing that came to my mind was either by that statue of that person / chair thing at the far west of the convention center or by the badge pickup :P then we can move to wherever.

*mik0 muffin !
07-28-2009, 09:26 PM
>=[ >=[ KHR better not conflict! We want Hoshi as Sheryl! *chants* =PP

Hmn, having never been there, as long as the spot is easy to find, that'll work fine xD.

07-28-2009, 09:48 PM
LOL! XD. Around noon, would you say it would be around 12 - 1ish? Maybe I can ask my group to make the photoshoot around 3 or so, but then again they're going to base the photoshoot when the full schedule comes out in August X: so yeah ~

LOL, okay. If worse comes to worse, then we'll like scavenger hunt people haha!

Chiyo sen
07-28-2009, 10:46 PM
Noon sounds fine for me =D Hehe Im really excited now! I'm pretty sure this is the only photo shoot Im going to. Other than Ranka, Im just cosplaying from Fairy tail, and maybe Miku... I hope it doesnt conflict with KHR Hoshi, You make such a cute Sheryl! =3 I have no idea where we could meet up though... Assuming its the same set up as last year, maybe near registration? Thats easily recognizable... or that shop near the front, i think it's starbucks or something. Meh, Sorry I'm so bad at things >_<

07-28-2009, 11:14 PM
Waaah Fairy Tail!!! The only ones I've seen so far are "light version" Ezra's (with her Samurai outfit, forgot what it's called), Natsus, Lucys and one Lluvia. I would be down to do Gray since all I would need is the FT tattoo to be done, lawl. xD

I'm sure once the floor plan is figured out we can fine a place to meet. The front seems feasible since it's easy to find people there and or Starbucks :]

Chiyo sen
07-29-2009, 12:24 AM
Anywhere is fine with me. ^_^

einobaka, I love Fairy tail! Gray is my favorite X3 I'm hopefully doing Erza in her new Hart Kreuz armour, or Black wing armour. haha. I wanted to do Heavens wheel... but its not really that portable, and I'd be taking the train lol.

07-29-2009, 10:33 AM
This mini Ranka-army makes me so happy <3
I'll be around as Anata no Oto Ranka, not sure what day but I guess whenever there's a decision on a gathering time.

07-29-2009, 10:42 AM
Chiyo, that's awesome! Can't wait to see that Ezra :3

Woo more MF :D

07-29-2009, 10:48 AM
Starbucks sounds good, haha. Or somewhere on the registration floor.

Yay another Ranka :).

Chiyo : Aw, thanks! I'm quite nervous about debuting her, but hopefully it'll go well ^^;.

Oh, and NYAF listed the floor plan of the first and second floors if you guys are interested in looking at it ;O

*mik0 muffin !
07-29-2009, 11:43 AM
Okay, so how about 12pm Saturday, in front of Starbucks, then we relocate wherever?

w00T the Rankas are winning! ;P

And I can't find the floor plan D:

07-29-2009, 11:58 AM
Sounds good xD.

And I think this is it (http://www.mapyourshow.com/shows/index.cfm?show_id=NYAF09) xD.

*mik0 muffin !
07-29-2009, 12:53 PM
lOL thanks Hoshi~

Ah, though my map reading skills seem to have diminished somewhat. I can't quite orient myself as to how it looks. Oh well xD;

Argh, more shopping for Ranka tomorrow! Because the red fabric I thought I had for her red bows fail =.= And I bought 2 boxes for RIT color remover to lighten my yellow fabric a lil, but I don't think it got much lighter. So I think I wasted $5 sigh.

07-29-2009, 01:02 PM
You're welcome XDD lol!
LOL, aw it's okay. Should be easier in person :B

D: oh noes. I hope you find what you need for Ranka tomorrow~

07-29-2009, 05:06 PM
Hello everyone! I'm KitsuneCagalli, *mik0 muffin ! 's potential Sheryl (Lion Version). Thought i'd introduce myself and see all these lovely people she keeps telling me about. Question, are we doing an official gathering? And if so, where? ^.^U

*mik0 muffin !
07-29-2009, 05:35 PM
I put the official gathering in the thread!

Meetup in front of Starbucks, then move elsewhere

Chiyo sen
07-29-2009, 06:15 PM
Hello KitsuneCagalli! Its very nice to meet you! =3
Yay MF! ^.^
catwithoutagun, I cant wait to see your cosplay! Is that the pink dress, with the brown boots? =3
I'm sure you'll find what you need mik0! I believe in youuu! haha. I havent even gotten to that part yet...
I did take a picture of my concert outfit if anyone is interested. Haha, not quite done yet, but http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u253/chiy0sen/Cosplay/SANY3268.jpg?t=1248908903 this is it so far. ^^

*mik0 muffin !
07-29-2009, 07:09 PM
gAah Chiyo, that is SO cute!! =] You're a lot farther ahead than I am lOL, yours looks almost finished! I like to completely finish one piece before moving on, that's why I was lookin to make the skirt's red bow already kehe. Currently working on my top =]

07-29-2009, 07:12 PM
Hello there Kitsune! :).

Chiyo : Ahh, that looks great so far! ^^.

Chiyo sen
07-29-2009, 08:38 PM
Hoshi :Thank you! <3
mik0: Thanks! I dont think I can stay focused enough to finish one thing at a time XD. Im now working on Ranka's Nyan nyan outfit, and then I'll get back to finishing this one lol. I wanna see when youre done! ^.^

*mik0 muffin !
07-29-2009, 09:01 PM
Aww ahaha. But cool! I probably won't be done until next week ^.^; I made a mistake on the shoulder strap ruffles D: And I think I messed up my ironing board..I got this sticky iron-on interfacing all over the board somehow DD:

Chiyo sen
07-30-2009, 12:23 AM
Ohh that happened to me once! I used iron on interfacing, and it was on my ironing board, and on my iron too. lol It was really irritating to get off! Its fun to use though X3. Anyway, I'm sure it'll turn out amazing! <3

07-30-2009, 12:28 AM
@Chiyo: Yep that's the one :] and BAWW SO CUTE <3 it looks fabulous so far!

*mik0 muffin !
07-30-2009, 11:10 AM
=] Thanks Chiyo. Omans so I stayed up til 3am last night, and now my skirt and shirt are pretty much finished, just missing the bows xD. Now to make the arm poofies! And I really need to find my hot glue gun...D:

07-30-2009, 11:40 AM
Ahhh, everyone's getting theirs done, I gotta get crackin' xD

Chiyo sen
07-30-2009, 01:03 PM
catwithoutagun : I love that outfit! Its so cute! And, thank you very much! <3
mik0 : Yay arm poofies! lol, I haven't made any progress with mine after I took that picture. Haha. I have to go out and get fabric for the nyan nyan uniform. >.< I'm procrastinating too much. XD

*mik0 muffin !
07-30-2009, 10:10 PM
Yays, I think I'm officially done shopping for concert Ranka! =D. Now I just have to find my stupid glue gun xPP. Grr. Anyhoo, at this rate I feel like I'm trying to get ready for a con thats next week, rather than one that's a lil under 2 months away =P. I'm too excited lOL

07-30-2009, 11:07 PM
Hey ya'll! Count me in the gathering! I'll be coming as Sheryl (pink promotional outfit). :) I can't wait!

07-30-2009, 11:15 PM
Augh, I think I'm going to run to fashion district next week for more fabric xD.
and maybe sew another outfit for sheryl x:

mik0 : yay! haha i hope you find your glue gun :3
and LOL! i felt like that too.

kirakishou : welcome! :3
looking forward in seeing you ~

*mik0 muffin !
07-31-2009, 12:08 AM
Yay, Kirakishou! Welcome to the crew~! So glad to have another Sheryl =D

And yeah, Hoshi, do it!! xD I've been going to the fashion district every thursday for the past 3-4 weeks now xDD; I think I'm starting to build a list of Ranka outfits! And at this rate I'll seriously be ready to shop for another cosplay next Thurs ahaha~

07-31-2009, 03:47 PM
Oh wow ~ that must add up to a lot of costumes LOL.
Haha, and I think I will next week XD !

If I get what I need and finish sewing, I'll debut that outfit instead of the star date one for saturday.

*mik0 muffin !
07-31-2009, 03:54 PM
Ooh, which other Sheryl are you making, Hoshi? =D

Hee, I've decided that rather than the school uniform, I will make Ranka's red twin star dress next! =DD ahaha.

Concert outfit update: still working on the bows. I need to fix the shirt a bit, take it in a few inches...currently it makes me look a little like pregnant Ranka O.o;;

07-31-2009, 04:00 PM
Eee ~ I would love to see the twin star dress in person! Haha ^^
LOL @ pregnant Ranka reference X: that's not good ~

And from this (http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a101/Balloona/SherylsOutfits.jpg) I want to make that outfit with the light blue dress (that has white buttons?) with that cute hat thing XD.

07-31-2009, 04:18 PM
Thanks everyone! This will be my second convention and first cosplay shoot with a group, so I am so stoked!

*mik0 muffin !
07-31-2009, 04:41 PM
Ah yeah! That is such a cute outfit, Hoshi. Good luck with it! I'm sure it`ll come out adorable on you =D

yup, it's def gonna be lots of fun, Kirakishou! This is an awesome group with awesome ppl, and we'll get great photos and crackish photos and have a blast xD

LOL okay guys. Just popping in to say I'm finished with my Ranka concert outfit xD. That was faster than I expected!! I think it's simply cuz i've been super obsessed and working on it practically daily...for at least 6 hours at a time ahaha.

Wig has also arrived! Took ~15 days, not bad shipped from China. Its pictures are pretty accurate on ebay. Color is a nice blend of greens and the fiber is pretty smooth. I'm happy with it =D. Only two things weren't that awesome: 1) the antennae thing was not as neatly "gelled" up as it should be and had this brown stitching holding it in place, but its not too noticable I think. and 2) the right side "puppy ear hair" on mine was a little messed up, it twisted in different directions instead of falling neatly inward, but it should be fixable with some styling. I just don't know how...LOL any of you have wig styling exp? Do I just use hairspray? I don't want it to get all cakey and hard tho.. If its really stubborn, should I carefully use a my straightener on very low heat? I may also trim the "puppy ears" and the bangs a bit =]

I'm so happy~~ All I need now are shoes! And now I think I'm going to start planning for the twin star dress..xDD <3

08-01-2009, 11:13 PM
@ my lovely mik0 ~> Personally I think you should straighten it with the iron on very low heat. I did that with my Orihime wig AND my long haired Sakura wig, so i think it'll be ok. Just go slow and in little sections (it takes forever, but it's worth it! =D)

But! I have some questions, firstly, does anyone know where I can find something just like this :http://www.myspringshoes.com/us/women/boots/city/68996617-jeniffer in white and cheaper than $80? These would be awesome Sheryl shoes, but i'm poor! (if it comes down to it, i'm getting these with my next paycheck XO)

Second, my Sheryl is going well, but I need a good glove pattern. The one I have is kinda lame so i was wondering does anyone have a nice one, you know that's got like the nice triangle cut in between the fingers or something?

And third, does anyone have the Nyan Nyan medley in instrumental? Thanks everybody!

*mik0 muffin !
08-01-2009, 11:53 PM
Thanks Kitsune dear =] I`m gonna try that soonish! Need to find my straightener now...=.= my stuff is all so hard to find after moving from dorm sighh.

I dunno about those amazing shoes =[ , but about the gloves, what do you mean by triangle cut? I think if you have a nice stretchy fabric, these instructions look fairly simple: http://www.essortment.com/hobbies/makeeveningglo_tsly.htm . they may still come out lame tho, it sounds too simple lOL. Here's another: http://www.stretchy.org/catsuit/extras/gloves/complex.html . Hope they help somewhat =O

08-02-2009, 08:25 AM
mik0 : congrats on finishing it! 8D.
And as for the dog ear maybe you can comb it in one direction then spray it? D:
Or as Kitsune mentioned maybe straighten it? XD.

Kitsune : Here's a tutorial (http://sew-ing.com/make/gloves.html) I found while searching the web xD. The pattern is pretty much the same as the 2nd link mik0 posted.

*mik0 muffin !
08-02-2009, 06:00 PM
Thanks guys, the hairspray and light straightening helped =]

But eek~ Okay so that was a little nerve-racking xDD; I just did some cutting of my wig. Trimmed the bangs and am in the process of volumizing and trimming the dog ears...i sure hope they're even! >.<; I'm afraid of styling wigs, especially cutting them, because last time I cut a wig I messed up up. Bad =.=;; lOL so this time I took it really slow, tiny little chunks. I just got my hair cut yesterday so having watched my hairdresser cut my hair taught me a lot about how to cut wig hair xD.

What's the status on all your lovely M:F cosplays, minna-san~? =]

08-02-2009, 06:47 PM
Aw that's great to hear 8D. Haha I'm scared to style my wigs too since the fibers won't grow back X: but then again it's good to just take that risk and cut / style it :).

And I'll be going shopping for fabric either Tuesday or Wednesday ~
If my friend finds what she needs for her cosplay, she might be Male!Ranka for saturday LOL.

Chiyo sen
08-02-2009, 09:26 PM
Waaahh I missed a lot! Its nice to hear the wig mik0! I might consider getting that one then... I've never even been fabric shopping in the city... I wanna go! XD maybe sometime later this week I'll take a trip over there. I just dont like styling long wigs! Its really a pain... My Miku wig was reaaallyy irritating! haha. I got shoes for Nyan nyan uniform... and started on the apron. I need to find shoes for Ranka's concert uniform, I have no idea where to find shoes like that. I might end up making boot covers. . . ^_^
Kitsune, I found the Nyan nyan medley instrumental, http://www.4shared.com/file/122514916/b4222a8/13_-_Nyan_Nyan_Special_Service_Medley__Tokumori_withou t_vocals_.html
If you still need it =D

*mik0 muffin !
08-02-2009, 10:28 PM
One more discovery about the wig...lighting-wise. It looks kinda blue when photographed in harsh/yellow/fluorescent lighting. Natural light [as usual lOL] is the best~

Aww, Chiyo, yeah and Miku's hair is soo much longer than Ranka's! ^.^; Hee, I've started my planning for Twin Star! I found a nice pattern to alter and drew out some general guidelines/notes. I don't have shoes yet for Concert, either =T. I'd settle for any almost brown chunky heeled thing lOL. I just dont wanna have to spend too much money =.=

08-03-2009, 01:40 PM
my costume is 80% done and my friend bobby costume is already finish lol

08-03-2009, 07:44 PM
I finished the dress but now I've got to get around to getting some boots. Glad to hear everyone's progress is going well :]

Uh, since everyone seems to be having shoe troubles can I recommend www.electriqueboutique.com? I usually just go to Boots > Sort Lowest to Highest price. I always find good shoes and never feel bad for cutting them up since they're so cheap ;;;

*mik0 muffin !
08-03-2009, 11:36 PM
xD Awesome, megasoups!

And cat, thanks for the link! Not bad at all...but arghh on shipping! Ehe =.=; I just really hope to find a good pair in real life. They have to exist somewhere for cheap~! I honestly don't wanna pay more than $15 or so... the boots on that site are nice and cheap, but for some reason the heels aren't as cheap =O. Actually instead of those brown boots for the concert dress, I'm tryin to look for brown or red heels, maybe mary janes, so they can go with both my concert and twin star outfits xD~

08-03-2009, 11:52 PM
Oh man I forgot about that, augh shipping is always a killer. DX

08-04-2009, 12:17 AM
Oh man! Thank you, I love you Chiyo! Now I can practice my horrid Sheryl version of it and maybe get into a better voice for the con XD And thank you Mik0 and Hoshi, the glove patterns were awesome :D

Ms. Nome is about 80% done now, i'm just working on the details (adding garter straps to dress, gloves, ribboning the corset, etc...) Glad to hear everyone else is doing well too! Let's keep up the good work minna-san!

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 12:20 AM
Show me a progress pic pleaseeeee Kitsune-chaaan~~! xD

The nyan nyan special service medley is like 12 minutes long, compared to the non-special version which is 7 minutes long~! xDD. Oh boy~~

08-04-2009, 12:30 AM
Hehe, I fail at life because I've been taking progress pictures, but i can't find my connecting cable to put them into the computer XDDDDDD Oh man, it's gonna be bad (really 12 minutes? >.<), however, I've got the 7 minute version down, at least sheryl's parts XD

(btw, I decided i'm getting those shoes, because they were perfect and i will where them IRL too cause thy're so comfy XO)

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 01:14 AM
yeah i'm learning the 7min ver., but dont have the instrumental of that. the 12min ver. has instrumental, but i cant find the extended lyrics >.>;;;

aw nice~! Did you order a wig yet?

Chiyo sen
08-04-2009, 12:28 PM
Your welcome Kitsune, I didnt notice how long it was ^^;;. Sorry >< I found http://www.4shared.com/file/90364673/1ac632c8/Nyan_Nyan_Service_Medley_karaoke.html This one too... I think its the 7 min version haha. Some of the shoes on that site were really nifty! I'm still on a search for Ranka shoes though... I may just modify my old paddock boots or something XD When I do find some, I'll be sure to let you know mik0! Thanks for the wig info by the way... My mom says she found a wig shop nearby, so Im going to check it out, they just might have something haha.

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 12:47 PM
Chiyo, you rock hardcore! <3 Thanks for finding the instrumental! =D.

=] Thanks, and yay! It's always nice to look in a store in real life. I still have to finish trimming mine =.=. Though I've been momentarily distracted from Ranka by Yui =X lOL. Thursday as usual will be my trip to the fashion district shopping tiemz =]

Chiyo sen
08-04-2009, 01:15 PM
Haha, thanks ^.^. No problem! Im good at finding things? Haha, I should go shopping too I still haven't finished doing that. XD I love Yui! I was planning on doing Mio's ending outfit. I dunno when though... I like her blue tights lol. I could almost use my real hair for her too, but my hair is brown, not black ><.

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 04:27 PM
Hee, Mio's so cute, I love her best =] . When my hair grows out i'll prolly cosplay her~!

So I experienced a fail today. I was makin these giant clay bead thingies. But apparently it wasn't supposed to be baked...they came out all melty and fail D:

I can't wait until NYAF has a full, or close to full schedule out! I wanna plan cosplays kehe...wondering if I should go more than one day...because by then I'll have 2 Rankas and Yui complete =]

Chiyo sen
08-04-2009, 04:38 PM
Aww! Im sorry about your clay mik0! ;_; I cant wait either! I'm really excited. ^^ Im sad I have to wait until september, its still like six weeks away lol... You should go more than one day! It'd be fun =D Dooo iittt lol.

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 05:21 PM
lOL yeah this is def. the earliest I've ever planned/completed cosplay before a con xD. Hmmn..I think I'll get a weekend pass =]. It's only $15 more than the Saturday ticket anyway lOL. Even tho I'll miss half of Friday...we'll see if I can get outta class early xD. Do you know what cosplays you're doing for what days, Chiyo?

Bwaah I really wish there was a karaoke contest! I sooo wanna perform as Ranka =]. I wish that was Friday night. I read on some forum they're thinking of putting it in, but the tentative time is Sunday morning O.o. Weird time for karaoke...I wouldn't be able to make it on Sunday anyway D:

08-04-2009, 06:52 PM
(Deleted 'cuz I was dumb and was corrected 'bout the schedule thing Dx )

And that's awful to hear about those clay beads DX.

Lol, I actually bought some navy blue tights for Sheryl today (along with mucho stuff for her outfit =_=U) and while I was checking to see if the tights matched with the fabric, the stupid velcro on my bag stuck onto them and pulled out some of the stitching; so now I have a loose stitch thing on my tights XD;. Ugh.

Chiyo sen
08-04-2009, 08:24 PM
mik0, on friday Im still not sure about Friday, but I think I'll start out with Miku, and then Ranka's concert outfit. On Saturday, Im going in Nyan nyan Ranka in the morning and for the photoshoot, and then changing to Erza Scarlet from fairy tail. ^^. I love karaoke! It would be nice to have it at NYAF, Sunday morning is a weird time though... Im not cosplaying on Sunday I think... Im not sure yet ^^.
That same thing happened to me with my tights and someones coat... lol. I wasn't cosplaying though XD. Thursday really? Yaaayyy! haha Im so excited. =3

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 10:03 PM
This is a fail dbl post, ignore plz xP.

*mik0 muffin !
08-04-2009, 10:08 PM
Ooh Thursday? Yay! =] And kehe, it's alright with the beads, I was able to fix them and now they're just drying~

Yay Sheryl shopping! But aww =[ for your tights, I really hate it when that happens! It's like snagging new tights with my own fingernails =.=;; Not too bad tho, hopefully!

Hmmn...so I think then I'll do twin star Ranka on Fri, and concert Ranka on Sat =] No changing... unless I really get the urge to wear Yui for the second half of Sat xD.

08-05-2009, 06:14 PM
That is kind of a weird time for karaoke, is it just not a popular event? :(

*mik0 muffin !
08-05-2009, 06:46 PM
I don't think NYAF has ever had an official karaoke contest =O. I really really wanted to participatee =[

*mik0 muffin !
08-10-2009, 10:19 PM
bumpies~ how's everyone's cosplays going?

I actually haven't been working on mine really...xD;;

08-10-2009, 10:29 PM
Haha, you're not the only one ~

I'm currently attending a two week art program = A=; so I can't work on any cosplay stuff 'till it's over xD;. The fabric sitting on the chair is just, mocking me D: lol.

08-13-2009, 05:19 PM

08-13-2009, 08:01 PM
Lol, I need to start working on Sheryl's dress thing too XD.

And I think NYAF announced the karaoke contest, but idk if the time is finalized ;O.

Sounds great, baokaka!

And oooh, even more MF characters, Megasoups? xDD awesomeee~ that would be soooo cool.

I am so excited!! well I haven't take picture of mine Sheryl yet but I can show you the Star date version with PM.

08-17-2009, 11:33 PM
But! I have some questions, firstly, does anyone know where I can find something just like this :http://www.myspringshoes.com/us/women/boots/city/68996617-jeniffer in white and cheaper than $80? These would be awesome Sheryl shoes, but i'm poor! (if it comes down to it, i'm getting these with my next paycheck XO)

Try this place

08-18-2009, 02:54 AM
Ok! Welcome to all our new attendees, cannot wait to see you at the con!! Update, my sheryl's basically done (Still debating the killer shoes), i'm super excited to show you guys, but i have yet to find my uploading cable thingie XOOOO

And this is gonna sound like a silly question, but if we're all shopping in the fashion district for supplies, why have none of us ever seen each other? (lol minus mik0 and myself)

In other news, i have decided to join Mik0's obsession with K-on, and encourage you to follow XDD ( PS- Check out Baccano!, its a short AMAZING series i've been obsessing over and not working on my sheryl lol <3 FxE)

08-18-2009, 08:48 AM

*mik0 muffin !
08-18-2009, 04:55 PM
Ne, Kitsune, those shoes really WERE gorgeous. You can try at gojane.com (http://gojane.com), I got my Yui and Ranka shoes there and the total, incl. shipping, was just under $40. Not bad for two pairs =]

And lOL, it's likely we've seen lots of cosplayers shopping around, yet we simply don't know each other/can't recognize each other in real life xDD.

08-23-2009, 05:12 PM
I'm curious as to how many MF cosplayers we have now. Could we start a tally on the front page? ;D *hints to Miko*

haha seems like we have many, but don't expect it too high since sometime stuff does happen, so I would say at least we have more then 5 :D

08-24-2009, 01:09 PM
Can't wait! I hope the schedule be out soon...

Wahaha, Kitsune and I had a fun time in the city today. We started singing in the street at one point when I broke out with the opening lines of What bout my star? in the middle of Herald Square as we were walking xDDDD. Sooooooo fun. Gotta love this city. Everyone treated us pretty normal, some random guy even complimented my voice...ahaha. Though there was this one weird creepy guy who sang back "What bout my starrrr" as we were crossing the street still singing LOL. We also practiced some of Nyan Nyan Service Medley, but that was a little more in private and our other friend gave us some feedback. We still have a lot of practicing to do~!

Chiyo sen
08-25-2009, 03:24 PM
That sounds like fun mik0 ^^. I only one real life friend who lives near me, and they dont cosplay XD. I still have to finish my cosplays though... I'm still working on Nyan nyan Ranka.
I want to hear you guys sing! =3 My skit was accepted for the cosplay variety show by the way... Im doing the short version of Seikan Hikou. X3 I hope I can do it well enough... haha. Im soo excited for this con! Theres only about a month left and I still have so much to do... XD

*mik0 muffin !
08-25-2009, 06:08 PM
Kehe, perhaps your friend needs some persuasion...? ;DD

Ooh awesome!! I can't wait to see your performance! You will be singing and dancing it? =DD Ganbatte, I'm sure you'll do epicly wonderful!

Chiyo sen
08-26-2009, 02:54 PM
Haha, maybe. ^^
Thanks! I'll do my best! Im just doing the dance. I was going to sing it, then I changed my mind. ^^; I'll practice a lot! XD

08-26-2009, 11:44 PM
Chiyo sen I can't wait to see! (I love it when people do dances from anime, especially if it's synchronized. Maybe you and mik0 can give us an amazing Ranka performance at the con? :thumbsup: ) You'll do amazing! So how are everyone's cosplays going? Any new updates?

*mik0 muffin !
08-27-2009, 12:24 AM

I wanna see progressss picsss and finished pics tooo ^.^~ It's so hard to get good pics when you're the one holding the cam for yourself D:

Off-topic, but i wanna see your Ennis, Kitsune~!

Chiyo sen
08-27-2009, 08:17 PM
Yay! photoshoot and a show! XD I'm almost done modifying the boots I found for Ranka. =3 I suppose I should take pictures of that... ^.^ Im really proud of them so far!

*mik0 muffin !
08-27-2009, 08:24 PM
Haha, I stalk this site too much >.>

Yesyes Chiyo, I very much want to see!! I got lazy with my Ranka boots and aren't modifying them at all...well except for attaching the orange bows, of course loL. But I'm happy with my purchase and the fact that I can wear them in real life too ^x^

And guess what guess what? One of the maids of the NYAF maid cafe says the stage is open for people to randomly perform in between events! I may totally do something xD;;

Chiyo sen
08-27-2009, 11:28 PM
You should do something mik0! I saw that the karaoke contest is Sunday... I wanted to enter it but I have no idea what I'd do! >.< Oh well. lol.
There was a lot of cutting and stuff involved with these boots. lol. They are the perfect shape though... so its okay. =3 Its cool that you can wear yours irl, I dont think I could do use mine for anything but Ranka XD.

08-28-2009, 12:25 AM
Wow mik0, I think you should do it! Perform on stage like Ranka-chan would! (LOL and i'll be the Sheryl behind you pushing you to become the little songstress!)

Chiyo, I'm excited to see your boots, they are probably amazing with the work you're putting into them! Scratch that, i'm excited to see the entire thing! That goes for everyone coming to NYAF, we'll be the best Macross Frontier cosplayers yet, you'll see!

(Note: shoes came today, they really look great, i'm excited I got such a close-to-reference-picture pair!)

off topic- Mik0, I'll get some piccies up, but I need to get a wig for her too XDD

Macross Frontier Find:

So this is where my obsessions lead me to. If I wasn't so poor, this baby would be MINE: http://www.varologic.com/blog/post/2009/05/18/Buffalo-Animates-Sheryl-Nome-into-USB-Flash-drive.aspx
They have Ranka and other anime characters too at GeekStuff4U XDDDD

*mik0 muffin !
08-28-2009, 09:20 AM
And you should do something too, Chiyo! xD. But yeah about their "official" karaoke contest...Sunday morning's just a poop time for it. I'm glad they're opening up their stage, I'm guessing sorta like open mic when it's not being used for an event! =] Hmmmn what what I do? Seikan Hikou? What bout my star? Watashi no kare wa Pilot? Kitsune, wanna perfect the medley by then and do it with me ? LOL so many possibilities, what a fun fandom we have xDD.

And oooh that's so cool! Chiyo, your boots sound amazing and totally accurate and I cannot wait to see them and your entire cosplay too =DD

And LOL omigosh, I've seen those USB thingies. That's hysterical. If I had the extra money lying around I'd totally get a Ranka one ahaha~

Less than a month away!!! Ahhh can'ttttt waaaaaaitt xDD~

08-28-2009, 01:18 PM
Haha, anytime Mik0! Let's give it our all at the open mic event! I've been practicing! Afterall, Watashi wa Sheryl daro!

OMG, I know! I literally rolled around on the floor at those character drives, but they're super cute!!!! I wish I could get the Sheryl one!

(random note: I'm done with the preliminary designs for the star date and red dress outfit, and i'm starting the purple highschool queen dress. I have a real problem. I think i'm definitely gonna atempt to do all of Sheryl's outfits XDDDDD If only I had all the money for the materials XO)

School has started again, taking up most of my time. Goodbye to those carefree cosplay days :waaaah: I don't think there will be any new outfits for a while.

Does anyone know how to make built-in-bra shirts??

09-01-2009, 10:56 AM
The con schedule perhaps? :p

Yups I meant that lol. And it still not out yet x.x weird..but oh well. Just a couple more weeks!! till the con =o. Glad I am all done now and my friends are almost done too. Woot, Hope I won't get to shy around your...since I am a very very shy person

09-03-2009, 02:19 PM
Now that the CON schedule is up, the Yui Makino concert is from 11:30am to 12:30pm. This is the sole event I wanted to go see. :X So I think I will miss the group shoot. I really want to go, but can't miss this concert. ^^ So if you guys are still hanging around after the concert, I can make it!

09-03-2009, 06:30 PM
Most likely we'll still be around the same area after the concert :).

09-03-2009, 08:13 PM
The Starbucks area? If so, that'd be awesome. Ill rush right after the concert to the group. If anyone wants to exchange numbers too for updates, I'm game.

09-03-2009, 08:26 PM
Not too sure about the Starbucks area, but most likely on the same floor as registration xD.

09-03-2009, 09:48 PM
OoOH con schedule!! *jumps on it*

Yes, I'm sure we'll still be around after 12:30 =] Not sure where we're relocating, may stay inside, may go outside, but Kirakishou if you want, drop me a pm with your cell and I'll give you mine, so it'll be easier to find each other =]. Though...I MAY go see the first half of her concert ahaha...I'll see~

*mik0 muffin !
09-08-2009, 12:23 PM
*refuses to let this thread sink into the depths of the forum ahaha!*

Well it's decided. I'm going to see if I can sing Diamond Crevasse during one of the Apple Kissa open stage slots...xD;;; Probably Saturday afternoon, but I'll see if I can actually make it lOL. Yeah, I'll be Ranka singing a Sheryl song...=PP But Seikan Hikou is sooo hard! Because I get all out of breath trying to sing and dance at the same time LOL. And Diamond Crevasse is actually the MF song I know best after SH. sooo...yeah xD;;

Psst...any more hidden NYAF 09 MF cosplayers out there....x3

09-13-2009, 07:41 PM
Kitsune : LMAO, really?! Haha that's so cool! And small world indeed 8D.

09-15-2009, 09:49 AM
Woot it next week! I am soo nervous.

09-17-2009, 11:46 AM
OMG, it is a week away! XDDDDD I hope everyone's ready! Yes Mik0, because we were there together! I can show you the picture too XDDDD

OK, so my wig still hasn't come in yet. Anybody have advice for a quick backup sheryl wig? *is getting really nervous*

How's the cosplays going everyone??

09-17-2009, 12:10 PM
Lawl, my Kushina was like fail. It was my first time wearing a wig XD.

And which seller did you purchase your Sheryl wig from? Hopefully you'll get yours soon! If anything I could tell you which seller I got my wig from... I received it in 8 days xD;.

*mik0 muffin !

Yes show me piccy! xDD;;; *fail memory*

I think you could get away with using your Namine wig, if anything =T...but >.<<< i really really hope it comes in for you! How many days has it been? I got my Ranka wig in like 20 so it may still be on the way but =T

Semi Off-topic, but I really wanna get started on my Twin Star Ranka! Obv it wont be in time for NYAF, but maybe halloween? xD; But omigosh I am really really poor @.@ And I was looking at contacts last night...I wanna order a pair of Ranka contacts at some point. I hate those plain red ones, they look madd creepy >.> I like circle lens cuz they have that anime-effect with the dark ring around the iris and more "natural" color gradients, and I found 2 possible ones, Geo SF-20, with is actually bright anime red, and Neo Sunflower Hazel (or brown, I forget lOL), which is I more natural color and looks like...brownish red in some of the pictures, but I'm afraid that one will look too brown? Eh I dunno lOL. I mean, if they look more brown then I could use it for other cosplays/in daily life so maybe it's a good thing? But if I'm gonna buy them for Ranka then maybe I should just invest in an actual red pair?....xDDDD;; sorry for the rambling! These won't even come in time for NYAF if I order them now, anyway xP

09-22-2009, 01:20 PM
XOOOOO I AM SO UPSET! THE EBAY SITE SELLERS ARE SUCH FAIL! My wig will probably not be there on time for the con XOOOO There will be angry reviews (especially cause I ordered it in AUGUST) D<

But enough of that, HAHA, I love the one percent on Felt mik0 XD

So where is everybody? Con is only a few days away! Are you guys hiding and doing last minute stuff? (haha I am!) Is anyone going Friday too? What's everyone wearing? I will be going as Mandachan's Sakura version of KH : http://mandachan.deviantart.com/art/Naruto-Heart-for-Jadejj-68504467

My Lovely Mik0 will be Yui from K-on!

09-22-2009, 02:10 PM
Aww that sucks! D8. I hope you get it on tiiiime ~

And I'm like ALMOST done with my outfit xD. Buttons need to be sewn on and that's pretty much it.

I'll be going Friday too, with Misha. We'll be cosplaying the Magnet version of Kaito and Miku from Vocaloid :).

09-23-2009, 06:25 PM
Here is a preview of my costume, well, parts of it anyway ^^
lolz I made a stupid video xD

09-25-2009, 08:52 AM

09-28-2009, 12:24 AM
Hii everyone this is Miko who hijacked Alto's account wahaha =P. So we DID have a shoot on Saturday, thank you to those who could make it, it was lots of fun! I'm really sorry if anyone couldn't make it because the location was unclear! And for those who were late or couldnt make it for other reasons, we missed you! Thank you to catwithoutagun and her friend who took lots of photos for us!

Btw, Kirakishou, Kitsune and I saw you while working at Anime Bento in the dealers room on Sat! I saw that you had a pic of us in your facebook album! =D

09-28-2009, 09:36 AM
It was great meeting most of you =) !!! <3.
Sorry if my Ranka and I were kinda shy... but we really enjoyed the photoshoot and hanging with you all.

You guys are awesome 8D <3.

09-28-2009, 10:24 AM
hehe like what hoshi said... sorry if we were kinda shy.. we were soo excited to see our favorite characters. the photoshoot was really awesome, and it was fun to meet with you guys.

you guys are so cool, i hope we get to see each other soon.XD

*mik0 muffin !
09-28-2009, 09:05 PM
^.^ Hoshi, Misha, seriously awesome to meet and hang with you guys~ Our shoot would have been MUCH less awesome without you two! =] I hope to see you both again soon, perhaps at another convention, maybe we'll end up cosplaying from the same series again and we'll have another shoot together~! xD

I wanna share pics, but my laptop is still being fixed so can't upload anything yet =T

09-29-2009, 12:35 AM
Yay, the shoot was fun guys, thanks very much for gathering and all! :D

09-29-2009, 12:56 PM
Thanks for everyone who was able to make it to the photoshoot, you guys were great! I had fun and appreciate how we were able to take both silly and serious photos, thanks guys!

Just curious, anybody planning to go to Otakon from Macross Frontier? There's a slowly forming macross group that mik0, Einobaka and I are planning to attend, and if we could have you guys there with us too for another photoshoot, that'd be great. I hope everyone had a good time, keep in touch you awesome people you ;D

09-29-2009, 01:41 PM
We were happy to be apart of the photoshoot! ^_^
And yes hopefully we'll bump into each other in another con!

I want to try to go to Otakon... but we'll see how that'll work xD.
Btw, did Ollie upload the pictures from the shoot yet? I'm very anxious to see them... and if he did I couldn't find a link to it D8.

09-29-2009, 03:00 PM
I am so mad I did not make it! :( I went with family and they kept slowing me down, I threatened to leave them behind and they got all mad at me so I had to stay and wait (woke up early and waited over 2 hours!!!), then my phone decided to die and of course, I forgot to pack a charger. Weekend did not pan out to well for me. I did see some random Macross cosplayers, it was nice to meet ya'll, and sorry I did not come. :( *still really disappointed*

edit: Oh, I was the Sheryl in the white/pink dress and all the crazy facial jewels/eye lashes.
