ad 2010 is going to be my first time cosplayling for an expo. i have decided to go as haru glory from rave master since it seems like a cosplay that is on the less expensive side.

if anyone has tips on making my cosplay or more so on how i will make the sword feel free to share thanks

A good quality wig [Kankelon preferably] and make-up usually make a nice looking cosplay for photos.

There's a metal texturing tutorial on deviantart. I think most people use pink insulation foam for props and carve the foam out into shapes. There are lots of good threads on this site.

I'm excited to see all the other Kuroshitsuji costumes coming!

I'm bringing Maylene, mostly because a friend has a Joker costume, and I like that I killed her entire family. Also because everyone needs a combat maid in their lives.

Besides that, I'm bringing Moko from Skip Beat, Ty Lee from Avatar, and Excel from Excel Saga (along with Lord Il-Palazzo and Hyatt).

If the Avatar skit doesn't work out, then I'm bringing Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere.

I went into the fabric store to pick up 8 yards of bright pink for the Skip Beat jumpsuits, and the counter ladies were very confused. "What are you going to do with that?"
"Well, we're making racecar driver suits."
It's easier than explaining the whole cosplay thing.

I may also be Madam Red, if I can get her outfit done on time.

01-23-2010, 02:36 PM
Yaaayyyy so many Kuroshitsuji cosplayers~!
I'll be the Ciel that CountessKiwi just mentioned. XD I'm making this particular outfit link (http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c138/art_blastside/ciel.jpg). The one on the left. HOPEFULLY. I'm a bit tight on money but I hope I'll be able to manage. ^^;
Has there been any talk of a Kuroshitsuji gathering by the way?

Oh and I'll be Kyo from Dir en grey in his Garden outfit but methinks I'm alone in the Jrock cosplay category so far this year. =/

That's a cute Ciel outfit. Nice choice! But then, all his outfits are cute.

And there are usually a couple of jrockers wandering around... looking lost. :P

@blip:
i dunno....a gathering would be hella fun though!


my friend who's going as DaughterOfEvil!Rin :
And since I'm such a tail, it would be Kuroshitsuji, and a random princess attempting to boss people around.

me:
don't forget random Light and BB.
ALSO, i get to be butler!Grell for the anime mid-winter ball.
i wanna wear a dress though....*sob sob* xD

This'll be my second Anime Detour... though I'm still debating as to what cosplays to bring. I'm definitely bringing KHII Sephiroth, but as for the others, debating as to bring Xemnas, Lancer, Hughes, or Soubi. Can't decide between those other four which two more I'll bring.

Satori Veda
03-17-2010, 03:47 PM
This will be my second as well. I am planning on Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail. I'm only doing one outfit this year due to time and money. Last year I was Mizore and Inner Moka from Rosario+Vampire.
I'm hoping that this year will be as awesome as last, though I don't think the Sheraton can beat out the Crown Plaza's Game room (top floor with a great view of the city. It was also the most stairs I have ever climbed) and the pool right in the middle of the convention (I found this hilarious). But I guess it will be like a whole new con with the new, bigger hotel.

The new hotel has a pool in the middle of the atrium! So you can watch people swim from both floors of party rooms and one side. It's awesome -- more awesome than the other hotel, I think.

Plus if they have the game room on the top floor again (which I think is a terrible idea because elevators are always slow and steps are exhausting -- I think they should put it on the 4th floor or something) the hotel is 22 floors high and you can see lots and lots of tinier buildings.

Lol, I definitily only made the walk all the way up once, and I know I will appreciate a bigger dealer area this year.

I am still desperately trying to finish my costume. I have to finish all the base work this week so I can start bondo-ing, sanding, and painting. If I have enough time left over, I will make a sword too I think.

Hi all! =) I certainly enjoyed my first year at AD'10 (also my first time at an anime convention). I took plenty of pictures. Next year, my goal is to take at least 2000+ pictures. 8D LMAO So don't be shy if you see a girl with a big camera around her neck and ask me to take your pictures. I'll be more than happy to! =)

Here's a link to what I had taken over there. =D

Honestly, I hate the new hotel.
It's not fit for a small con like Detour.
Asides from elevator troubles at the Crowne Plaza, I think it was much better there.

Asides from elevator troubles at the Crowne Plaza, I think it was much better there.

Me too. The Sheraton made me feel....dirty. I did like the sakura outside though. Almost everything was better last year, despite the mildly cramped feeling. The Dealer's room sucked- there was such a small selection compared to this year. Honestly the Artist Alley was a crapton better than the dealer's selection. I was expecting a bigger room, because this was supposed to be a "bigger hotel", but it was actually SMALLER. The lines to the dealer's room were actually WORSE, which I did not think was possible. The additional waiting for the dance (about 30 min), not seating for the Maquarade when promised in the program, only allowing lining up 30 min before the actuall door opening (i swear it was an 1 or two last year- and no the only 30 min early rule did not give ANY benefits. People were still turned away and the seating fro being in line early were not really that good because of the way they arranged it). What was a TOTAL dissappointment to me was how teent tiny the AMV room was. Everybody has a seat in their big ass screening room last year. No one did this year. I could not see over the massive giant heads standing in the back (and believe me this room was fire hazard capacity). I know I can see them online, but where is the fun in that?
Oh, and not to MENTION the unwalkable hotel situation ( because how was I to know the official hotel was going to sell out in NOVEMBER). I am not crossing 4 lanes of highway to get to the con by foot. Last year I could just walk through the walkway. There are a lot more walkable ways to the Crown Plaza St. Paul.
The 30 minutes between panels was pure hell. I don't know if they did this last year and there was just one to do between. But this made the con feel empty, boring, and depressing. Couldn't even really go to the crappy dealer's room between the panels (wouldn't even want to).

But to not be a total whiner, there were some things I enjoyed. Some of the panels were awesome, like- Zombies Pwn Your Anime, Anime Radio (were all the guest read an old radio script, ad-libing and doing silly voices), "Horrors of the Internet", and "Smut-tastic"- where they had a bad smut writting contest. Some of the room parties were pretty good too.

Would I go back to the Sheraton again...I really don't know. I definitly wouldn't recommend it to anyone though.

If this was your first con, I am glad you don't know yet what a good one is. It will make it all the more amazing when you do go to one.

kanghead
04-27-2010, 09:09 PM
@Satori Veda: I honestly wanna get a huge group of people to email/send a letter about the hotel this year. They always ask for feedback and this is the kind they need.
The hotel itself was larger, but the rooms are so small I could barely do anything. They had that huge area to just sit around and relax, but that should have been the artist alley and the dealer's room should have been where the artist alley is. I'd much rather be in the Crowne Plaza, even with it's painfully slow elevators.

SpazzyKat
04-28-2010, 01:14 AM
I had such a great time!!!
:3
plus it was awesome driving up and seeing all the sakura/blossoms....:3

although i've never been to a con before...the dealer's rooms seemed a bit small....:I
i thought it'd be at least a bit bigger....

it was still a good experience, none the less. :3
