Yeah, we're going to have an awesome group this year! :)

I was thinking about maybe hosting a CLAMP related panel or something, but it's still too early to decide that yet.

that sounds real cool :3 I hardly ever go to panels at metro cause I am too busy with other stuff but I am gonna hit some this year for sure! and if you got a clamp panel I will be there! XD

I'm planning on doing the original RG Veda version of Ashura (this one (http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f133/Browncoat_Girl/Reference%20Pics/rg_veda_v10rg_veda_v10_124.jpg)). Just need to talk to my dad about helping me make Shurato. And a CLAMP panel sounds awesome.^^

OMG sweet I love the RG Veda Ashura *O* I am just not skinny enough to pull it off XD I was gonna make the Shurato for my Tsubasa ashura anyway but I'm not sure it I will :3 that is so cool ashura cosplayers are hard to come by! and now 2 at one metrocon ^-^ awesome! btw I bought my elf ears at yaya han's store http://yayahan.bigcartel.com/ (size medium) they are thick plastic and on a head band I love them I am also buying the Ivy wig in black on cosworx. best of luck ::hug:: ttyl <3

Haha, seriously, what are the odds of having two Ashuras? <3 I love the Tsubasa version, but I just don't have the time/budget so I decided to go with the RG Veda one. And RG Veda gets so little love. =(

Now if only we had some Yashas...

yeah I am only cosplaying Ashura so all my money is going to that cosplay so it lightens the blow on the wallet XD RG Veda gets no love I just love Ashura's original design but since I can't wear anything that revealing I opted for the Tsubasa Version I love how dramatic it is I already finished all the jewerly now I just gotta get the wig and work on the kimono.

yes Yashas would be nice :3 <3

KurohaneShizumi
11-11-2009, 06:23 PM
Ah. I plan to do Adult Ashura from RG Veda as well. I will actually have a Yasha-Ou. :3 But neither of us will have it done by Metro this year. ): Maybe next year.

I'm thinking about bringing along a second Clamp cosplay in addition to Fai! It looks like my cosplay group and I might be doing xxxholic costumes (in addition to our TRC craziness XD) My main focus is going to be Fai, though, so more costumes may not happen because of limited time.

I bought most of the fabric for him a couple of weeks ago, I just haven't found decent time to start working. My procrastinating is already getting the best of me! DX

11-17-2009, 11:02 PM
well it sucks that the Metrocon forums and official site are still down :( but on the up side I have a week off work and boy did I get alot done on my ashura cosplay the headress and beading are done, jewelry 90% done the kimono is 80% done and I bought the ears so all I gotta do is make the Tank top, belt, buy the wig(style it) and make the skirt. has anyone made any progress or made updates to their cosplay list? :3 best of luck with your cosplay honey buns! ttyl <3

KurohaneShizumi
11-18-2009, 05:18 PM
Oh, I forgot to mention, for whatever reason, that while I won't have my Ashura done by then, I will be bringing my Sumeragi Subaru (Vol. 16 outfit) cosplay and wearing him on Friday. ^_^

If I get to go to Metrocon next year like I am planning I'm pretty sure myself and two friends will be doing Sakura, Fai and Kurogane from Infinity Arc of Tsubasa. <3

And if I get to attend more than one day I will most likely bring my Koi Sakura outfit (which is one of my costumes I have finished and you can find in my gallery...thingy) or my Len Kagamine cosplay which I will debut at Megacon '10. But I hate to say that I'm getting really excited for this Vocaloid cosplay so that may be coming with me instead.

Nekomeishi
11-30-2009, 07:25 PM
PhantasmaJun: Those look awesome! You're going to be such a cool Ashura~ What is the headdress made out of?

Victoria_Wings: Cool! The Infinity arc rocks. >w< I hope you get to go!

As for me..I'm trying to figure out the conundrum that is my staff, it needs to be collapsible (to fit in the teeny tiny car) but I don't want it to *look* like it is. I am sooooo not a prop person. ^^;;

PhantasmaJun
12-01-2009, 01:09 AM
it is made out of foam board and cut with an exacto knife then I painted it to look like fire the the part that goes over the crown of the hair is just normal thin craft foam also painted to look like fire <3 thanks so much btw it really means alot because I love Ashura and I am a larger person so it is hard to feel confident even if you try your best on a costume to feel comfortable in it :3 ::hug::

btw on you Fai staff there is a girl on here who made a collapsible Fai staff i'll find it for ya tomorrow but she even had a Tut but my other compy with the link in the favs. crashed so i'll hunt forit for you tomorrow! <3 best of luck

Ah so you think there will be a CLAMP photoshoot if you can set a time for one?

...wonder if I should consider going.

PhantasmaJun
01-03-2010, 12:21 AM
yeah if enough people are interested we'll set a time and even have someone run around the con with a sign about the photoshoot to grab other clamp cosplayers who are not a part of the forums :3 but closer to the con we'll sort out the times so it will be ok for mostly everyone and we'll also have one friday and sat (I wont be there sun so someone else will have to arrange that one if you guys want one sun) I btw have never hosted a photoshoot so I am welcome to any suggestions and will allow anyone to take the bull by the horns who has more experience with these things (or knows a nice place in the con center to take pictures) I just knew there would be tons of clamp cosplayers since it is a vast subject.

That helps so much! 8D Thanks for sharing!

I've started work on my coat now, too! The amount of white has caused my family to nickname it the 'abominable snowman'. The excess fabric from the coat is going to be dyed blue and used for the designs on the sleeves and maybe the lining, but I wanted something that was a little bit shiny on the inside so I'm not sure. It depends on budget and what looks better.

Anyone else make any recent progress?~

np :3

if buying fabric counts XD I haven't done much since I made all the jewelry for my Ashura cosplay I got this nice silky satin white fabric for the kimono I sewed on with a brocade and it was too stiff for his so I am making another kimono @o@ and I have the material for his skirt but it is Lame so it is fraying (bought some stop fray) anybody know the best thread to sew Lame with?

Nekomeishi: Welcome to Celes Fai cosplay. XD The first words out of my mother's mouth when I tried my coat on for the first time were "You look like the Stay Puffed marshmallow man."

There hasn't been a ton of progress on my end as far as Ashura goes, since I've been focusing more on Pluto (Kuroshitsuji) and finishing Fai's 2nd blue coat (the one that goes under the white monstrosity) for Ohayocon. But I do have pretty much all the materials, and my ears. Just need to put the darn thing together lol.

I've also been thinking about bringing my Fai along, if I feel like braving the heat. >.> I do love that costume so, even if it is beastly hot to wear most of the time.

Victoria Wings
01-13-2010, 07:43 PM
I'm pretty much definitely going! >w< I have to...I've already bought the spikes for the infinity collars and I just bought the leather collars themselves...

I can't wait to see all of the other Clamp cosplayers there. <3

I know what you mean....I've often considered skipping details on costumes that I don't particulary like...but I always (so far) have given in and added the details. Accuracy is my main objective. <3

hey guys :3 I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to work on their cosplay for the clamp gathering or need any help making something (prop, gems, etc) just working on the skirt for my ashura cosplay and was wondering what progress you guys have made ^-^ we still have to set a time for the photoshoots Friday and Saturday of the con so if anyone has any ideas that dont interfere with the main shows and events please feel free to list times you would be interested in. I am also gonna ask if there will be a professional photographer this year cause a year ago it was Risingsun.net and it was free so that would be nice if there could be another professional there this year (dont think there was one last year).

SiriusLoveGirl
02-25-2010, 08:00 AM
I found fabric for Sakura's jumpsuit, so i can start working on her after Megacon's over. :D

For the meetups, will there be one Friday AND Saturday? That'd be awesome, since my cosplay partner and I are also cosplaying Hetalia, and if there's a gathering for them we'd like to go to that too. But whatever's best for everyone, of course!

JellybeanQueen
03-05-2010, 04:05 PM
Ugh, so now there's a chance that I might not make it to Metro this year. I haven't given up yet though, since I love this convention. ^^ Anyway, if I do make it, my sister and I are talking about doing Ame-warashi and Zashiki-warashi from xxxHolic, so I guess it'll be a rather CLAMP filled weekend for me, haha.

PhantasmaJun
03-07-2010, 07:46 PM

I booked my room a couple of days ago, and my Kurogane is able to go with me so I'm pretty happy to have someone to annoy all weekend~ XD

Progress-wise, I haven't done anything besides more staff measuring and planning. I need to get more foam board and craft foam before I can do anything else.

Photoshoots on both Friday and Saturday is a good idea, because it gives people with multiple costumes from different series more options! Having it out on the riverwalk might be fun if we all don't die from heatstroke in the process. XD

cool I cant wait to see your staff bet its gonna look awesome :3

I have no experiance organizing gatherings and stuff so I guess here and on the metrocon forum we'll decide on a good time to do the photoshoots so everyone can make the major shows cause it would be a bummer to miss those plus I wanted to have two for the reason you said and cause I know everyone makes it late on friday. so if someone with more experiance wants to take charge that is cool I am a go with the flow kinda girl XD but if not i'll do my best! <3

progress wise- my sewing machine is being dumb even though I got it three years ago XD so I have had to sew the kimono and skirt/weird fake hakama flame skirt by hand which is a pain I also painted the flames which looks awesome cause I did them faint and not all "look at me I got fire on my skirt" XD so yeah I finished all the jewerly but the anklet I have the head dress done. I bought elf ears and made earcuffs so I really just have to finish both the belts, get some sandals (since I cant go barefoot like ashura ^-^) and order and style my wig.

JellybeanQueen
04-05-2010, 04:14 AM
I agree, having two photoshoots definitely sounds like a good idea. Especially for those of us who are thinking of bringing more than one CLAMP cosplay, haha.

PhantasmaJun: Dunno if you've seen these before, but I'm thinking of getting a pair to use with my Ashura (http://www.topless-sandal.com/index.php/cPath/22?sandalsSid=378aeb2a51d3b998184f2119f0e24ca6). 'Cause thinking about going barefoot in the convention center makes me go squick. ><

And spring break starts this week for me, which means free time! XD I'm hoping to get most, if not all of Ashura's jewelry done this week, and maybe the waist/arm/leg pieces. Sooo looking forward to not having a cosplay with lots of layers this year.

PhantasmaJun
04-05-2010, 10:49 AM

I was rereading some of these posts, and i have some suggestions for the location of the photoshoot possibly. Now i'll admit, the years i've been going to this con, and seeing pictures of the convention center...i'm not sure where certain areas are. The only indoor areas i can think of is the one upstairs where they normally put the Artist's Alley, and the food court area. Problem with those is that most of the time they are somewhat crowded. Although as i think about it there is one area i believe isn't too crowded, but i'm not sure. Its the area by the stairs with a circular opening overlooking the food court. But again i'm not sure how crowded this particular area is. An alternative would be some outdoor areas, but i guess that depends on the weather. One particular place that i think is a good scenery is that outdoor area behind the food court. The only downfall of that area is that the spots near the river are wet sometimes..because of boats i believe. Another outdoor area (which is i think nearby the previous one) is this one
http://www.flickr.com/photos/aundre/3055601049/
but i don't know where this particular part is.
I really hope i got the areas correct, its been a long time since i've been there so i don't know the layout. I also hoped i helped out a little. ^^

yeah I know where that round thing over the food court is and your right there is never anyone there :3 that would be a good indoor spot. I think the riverwalk would be awesome too I agree with the weather thing though but it would be so pretty :3

04-23-2010, 10:54 PM
Last year was my first Metrocon, so I'm not overly familiar with the convention center, but from what I remember the place outside the food court would be really nice, weather permitting. I remember we had the Kuroshitsuji photoshoot in that big open space near Artist's Alley, which worked pretty well, but it's not the prettiest location. *shrug*

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a whole lot of progress on Ashura due to moving, but I did get some of the jewels and the wire frame for the necklace done. And my sister and I are now thinking of bring Tokyo Babylon Subaru and Hokuto, since it's not looking likely that we'll be able to do Ame-warashi and Zashiki-warashi for this con. And we don't have any pictures of Hokuto and Subaru yet (I keep hoping I'll find one from Mega, 'cause I actually fangirled a little when I saw my sis in full Subaru get up lol).

I got my Ashura wig about two days ago I ordered from cosplayanimewigs.com I think they are cosplayDNA on ebay aswell and for a china seller they are amazing!!! the fiber is just as high quality as cosworx and they have heat resistant wigs! I got a 40 inch long wig for Ashura and it was 34 dollars no shipping! AMAZING! it is beautiful I will take pictures soon I have already started the styling process I am making it into a basic pony tail at the base of the wig and then adding a clip on pony tail over for the illusion of a high ponytail with more volume and I dont have to cut,stub, or add wefts to the back of the wig I just have to cut and style and add volume to the bangs. :3 just wanted to tell you guys about the awesomeness (<~ not a word XD) that is cosplayanimewigs.com . I do however implore you to order early because since they are in china and the customs department is strict it takes about 3 to 4 weeks to arrive but who can argue with no shipping and amazing quality for half the price! <3

My little sister is most likely going to be Chii, in the big white T-shirt Hideki first puts her in. ((she dosent have much money to work with so shes putting it mostly into the wig and ears.))

I was going to be Freya (either chapter 25 cover version, or chapter 71 coverpage version) but my Lulu cosplay takes money priority (I hired cosplaymandy to make it, since Im a cashier at Target I work a lot so I dont have the time to make them myself. **Im no pro so it takes me a long time and concentration to do more complicated things**) . But depending on the prices and delivery times I may still appear for part of the con as Freya. Maybe even Bayonetta, too.

You guys want a Freya to make an appearence? -one thats actually female >.> (seen quite a few man-freya's and man-chii's at metrocons past.)-

Ahhh, Code Geass. <3 I'm hoping to cosplay Suzaku again some day, but it won't be for awhile probably.

And you can go ahead and add my sister and I to the list as maybes for Subaru and Hokuto. There's a pretty good chance we'll be cosplaying them at some point during the weekend, assuming my sister can find boots that actually fit her this time, haha.

owo you should!
As far as I know, Batz and I are planning to make Lancelot and Zero masquerade masks for it X3

But I plan on getting/making Zero's cape and mask....
Possibly over my summer break if I'm not swamped with anything else -w-

05-15-2010, 08:53 PM
Yeah, tell me about it. I found a good looking mask, and all my dad said was, "HAH. Wow. that looks ridiculous." and walks out. ...-_- This is gonna be a long week.. So I may stay as Unmasked Zero and have the half mask thing that goes over my nose. LOL The funny thing is, I have no idea how to start with that one. LOL

swainboW
05-15-2010, 09:35 PM
Prota; Haha I see I see
I haven't even asked/showed my parents any of the Zero masks I've found because they'd be like "THAT MUCH for a stupid mask? Get real." Sooo.... I've decided to research how to make a full one and attempt when I've got like, a month of free time XD
Until then, I settle for making a masquerade mask front of his

I'm sorry I didn't make this clear! I'm doing X/1999 Subaru from Vol. 16 when he fights Seishirou. (There's only 7 volumes to TB so I thought it was obvious I was doing Subaru from X... ^_^;; )

My Dead/Ghost Hokuto will be done by XandraAnneww here on coscom. She's still a maybe. And the Kakyou I mentioned has decided that she'll do an artbook version of Hokuto (the one with the colorful kimono). She's probably a definite.

we are not sure yet if it is gonna be outdoors ( I live in Tallahassee so someone with more experience with the convention center sweet spots would be awesome because I would like a indoor shoot its hot out there XD) but it probably will be despite the millions of layers clamp cosplay calls for :3 we haven't decided on time but now would be a good time to talk about this stuff <3 I can be there anytime I am gonna be in Tampa on Thursday morning so as long as it doesn't interfer with any major shows i'm good on anytime ^o^

list of major shows and times

Friday
Opening ceremonies- 1:00pm
Anime Idol- 3:00pm
The Fantasy Masquerade- 7:00pm (I dont attend but some of you may)

Saturday

The Original Anime Human Chess Match- 12:00pm
AMV Contest 3:00pm (I dont attend but some of you may)
METROCON Cosplay Contest- 6:00pm

so anytime before or after or in between any of the major events is fine with me just list when you think you will be able to make it to a shoot and we'll come to an agreement

batzy
05-17-2010, 10:47 PM
Inside shoot would be lovely. Tampa summers are killer, and two of three days I'm wearing theater makeup and I'm so scared of it melting off, even with fixative D: As for times... I honestly think my group would be available whenever. We've never been to Metro so we probably have no clue what is going on, haha.

Oh and I figured I do a more detailed list of my own group, so the list is less confusing >.< These are the folks we have officially coming

Friday, Code Geass:
Lelouch- Swainbow
Shirley- Not on coscom, but she goes by Kea
Suzaku- Batzy
Lloyd- mortalcheese

Saturday, Holic/Tsubasa:
Watanuki- Swainbow
Yuuko- Batzy
Black Mokona- mortalcheese
Fai- Kea

Hope this helps with the organizational progress!

And mylord almost two months now? I plan on getting cracking this Saturday since it's my day off... But bah! I'm so excited! This is going to be the best birthday ever :D

05-18-2010, 12:40 AM
@ Batzy thanks so much I added them and the days I agree I really want to do the shoot in doors its hot as heck and I bought great make up last year and I felt like I was melting XD. good luck with starting your cosplay and my birthday is afew days after metro! ^o^ July 29th! dont you love when things fall like that :3

what do you guys think about

5:00pm Friday cause people will be arriving late

4:00pm on Saturday? so everyone can see all the shows?

if this is alright we just have to think of a place but dont be shy if you think you cant make it we'll try to work it out so everyone is comfortable and has fun and also gets to see all the shows.

and btw a sweetie pie named yosuke http://www.cosplay.com/member/116136/ offered to take photos and kinda host this thing (once we get there as long as I take care of time and place details) since she said she has done it before :3 so thanks much to you Yosuke!

5:00pm Friday cause people will be arriving late

I'ma be at the hotel Thursday night so ANYTIME on Friday is plausible, really. We're gonna get up early for ~free breakfast~. :3

But if I know my Hokuto friends, they'll probably get to the con later anyway. XD So 5 sounds pretty good. I will be attending the masque actually so I'd have to be outta there at 6-ish to get ready...

Maybe 4 is better? Then I can be there for 2 hours...

And as for the "How will we know where it's at?" question... I would recommend making a sign but signs are generally banned from MetroCon unless it's apart of your costume. I'm sure people will recognize each other from the forum though so just like, go up and talk to people to find out if we don't work it out on the forums.

I've been to Metro plenty of times but there are a lot of places around the con center that are great for all sorts of CLAMP related cosplays. I don't think one spot is good enough. XD

4 on friday is fine with me and I agree maybe we can travel around as a group to different locations in the convention center :3 like you said I dont know if signs are allowed if they dont go with your costume but I will email and see if we can have a clamp gathering sign I dont think that would be deemed offensive XD but rules are rules so you never know. sweet dreams I gotta work tomorrow talk to you guys soon! <3

True...true.

We can possibly just walk around and find some nice places for everyone to look amazing or/and epic. ^^;

I did like the 5:00 P.M timing, (on Friday) cause I think I'll only just be arriving at the con around....2:00 P.M.... (which means she'll most likely miss the dance panel. ;.; ) but 4:00 P.M should be just as fine. And Saturday will be fine, since that's the day I plan to be Unmasked Zero the most. 8D ^^;; Sorry if this complicates anything. I'm just so excited, yet at the same time, I'm a bit unsure what will be going on. xD

Edit: as for a sign...Maybe if we has a Pizza box or something..? Put, "Clamp Photoshoot" or something on there... <_< Cause CC likes Pizza Hut LAWL. But hm... *thinks* Well, I always see "hug" signs on people.. O_O;; *taps chin* Hmm hmmm hmmm..Maybe cell numbers or something? O.O Like, my code name could be Prota, and so on? xD My cell is only for emergencies, as very much an emergency that missing a photoshoot would be for me. xD Ugh! Still two months away! *flails*

Thanks for adding those! I don't know if you want to include possible attendees on the list but we also have-

Friday Code Geass-
C2- Chiyo_tan
Rolo- No coscom, his DA is Nara-ken though

Saturday Holic/Tsubasa-
TRC!Chii- Chiyo_tan

Shoot; I have NO CLUE what works for us. Ask Batz =D
But YAY YOSUKE~!!

Finding each other; I have no clue right now. I'm seriously drawing blanks from coast to coast OTL''
If someone had a HUGE (or at least big) sign with like.... -CLAMP SHOOT/MEET- hovering around where ever we're starting at.... Or if we all decided on a place to meet up at the center before moving around for pictures.... <--not a whole lot of help

Hehe, our CC has a mini pizza box with "Pizza hut supports the rebellion" written inside XD I don't know if it will work for signage though because it's small. If we make a sign that looks all official and such- "Metrocon 2010 Clamp Photoshoot" - Will they really make us rid of it? O.o

If not I suppose mass texts could very well work.

I will add the possibles to the list :3 but i'll do a (maybe) beside they're name so we know whos officially going :3. glad your good with the times ^o^

@Prota-girl that is an adorable idea but I think they wouldn't have a problem with a meet up sign but (just got off work so) I am emailing them now to ask :3 I think it will be ok though.

@SwainboW yeah unless I get this sign thing approved I am drawing blanks too XD but we'll think of something I hope you are able to go shopping and get your jacket done ^_^

The official photoshoot times as of now are

Friday- 4:00pm

Mrrf, it looks like I won't make it this year after all. I'm not sure I'll have the money to fly down from PA by July, and a friend of mine offered a ride and a room for Otakon today, so I'll probably being going to Otakon instead (sadly it's the weekend after Metro, so I can't afford both). I am however going to shoot for EXPCon in October, if anyone's going, and there's a good chance I'll be doing something CLAMP related. ^^;;

I email the folks at metrocon and they said it was ok the co owner/chess director/head of security/ almost every thing else XD Nicholas Fazio said that security may hassle us a little but to tell them he said it was fine. (gotta name drop him :3 pretty much XD) I told him it would only say "CLAMP PHOTOSHOOT" and be on a poster board not a white dry erase board so were good.

@Jellybeanqueen- Thats too bad your real cool and I really wanted to meet you I hope to see you at Metrocon next year :3 best of luck and enjoy your other cons! <3

@Jellybeanqueen and Prota-Girl- COME TO EXPCON! That's Swainbow and I's home con. It is little, but fun :]

Prota-Girl
05-20-2010, 09:23 PM
I will try to, but it's like, almost right after Dragon*Con, and usually that's my final con of the year. But since I've been in my job, I should be able to make it this year, and possibly by then have a CC cosplay with me as well. LOL So EXP is a maybeh for me.

05-20-2010, 11:01 PM
Aww, I was really looking forward to meeting you guys too. I'll have to lurk around for pictures of all the awesomeness. lol

And I definitely do hope I can make it to EXP. I went last year and had an amazing time. The hotel was so unnecessarily artsy. xD But very nice for photos.

05-21-2010, 08:28 AM
Jelly; you did? O.o
who'd you go as?
Haha we didn't stay in the hotel


Speaking of which. Batz, my mother put in a request for... I think the Villas? Because the renaissance isn't a timeshare. But sh didn't get a reply last year so who knows lol :)

@Swainbow Ooolala sweet!

@JellybeanQueen- Ohmygod, that was you?! I definitely saw your Subaru and fangirled over it, ahaha. Also remember your Aerith, and think I quite possibly talked to you in your Rinoa on Sunday (I was Fai then).

Hi guys sorry I haven't said anything lately I've been working alot XD for my metro cash :3 I have a little update on my ashura cosplay since my sewing machine is acting like crap (feed dog issue) I have had to sew the entire costume by hand XO countless hours sewing a kimono, skirt and trim on the belts sucks but its looking great and the seams are strong so i'm happy! I am going to buy some foundation tomorrow because I am tired of going to cons and looking like I am melting before I get my ticket XD so I am gonna try a water based foundation called maybelline pure make up it is said to work good for oily skin and sweating, and I am gonna try one called Rimmel Lasting finish which is also good for oily skin and is said to last up to 16 hours. I am also looking for some awesome gold sandals tomorrow to wear at the con since ashura is barefoot so I am gonna have to improvise or try the those invisible sandal thingys. also off topic I am going to see Prince of Persia tomorrow! ^O^ yes i've waited long enough (I have loved that game since the good old nintendo days!) anyways sweet dreams guys and feel free to add any of your updates questions or what ever!

PhantasmaJun- Wow! Its coming along great so far! I can't wait to see it finished! (Cute dog too! ^^)
My mom booked us a hotel room the other day. We'll be staying at the Marriott across the street, since we waited too long for the Embassy and the only rooms avaliable(sp?) were ones with king beds and possibly on higher floors, but that's ok, because i stayed at the Marriot in 2007 and its a nice place! ^^ Ok done rambling about that.
I only have the mock-ups for the outfit done, i still got a lot to do. But now that school is out and its summer i should have more time. We only got a month left! I'm excited for this! ^-^

@PhantasmaJun: Oh My god, it looks awesome!!!! <3 <3 I cannot wait to see you in person!!! *flails happily* And cute doggie. xDDD

That is so awesome. And in my perspective, I think hand sewing it fun. LOL The machines always mess up for me. xDD And Prince of Persia? Oh man! You're making me wish I could finish my Dark Prince of Persia costume. O_O It was such an awesome movieee. xDD And the games are fun too. lol.

Anyhow, looking awesome so far, hun and have fun at the movies! xD And gold sandals are a great idea, they'd suit you as well as the character well. :)

It seems my sister is too lazy to come post herself =P even though she made the account. But ill be relaying info for her, and were expecting her wig and ears to arrive fairly soon :3 . When they get here were gonna do a pre-con photoshoot =D . I think her ears came yesterday but i wasnt here to sign for them, so they should come and try again today.

thanks so much sweeties! <3

@ ShinoduWind- thanks :3 yeah I was gonna try to stay at the Embassy but waited too long its good that you could still get a room at the Marriot <3 I normally stay towards the airport because the hotels are just as nice and cheaper. On the downside I gotta drive, pay for parking (not that bad) and I dont get the all day congoer experience XD

its cool that you will have time to work now that your outta school enjoy your summer!

@Prota-Girl- Thanks a ton :3 I ended up enjoying the hand sewing O.O and Dark Prince cosplay! do finish! <33333 I bet your gonna be so cool! yes the movie was amazing I was fangirling the whole time *o*

@Oreha- Your a great sister :3 thats cool that your things are starting to arrive I cant wait to see your photoshoot I'm sure your gonna be adorable! Thanks alot! <33

Thanks for the comments about my puppy Jimmy he is sitting under my desk laying on his stomach kicking my speakers XD like wtf.

LOL I has the Dark Prince as my wallpaper. Man, if I was not all ready for the year, I'd work on the Dark Prince for Metrocon.. O_O It's all up in my head and waiting to be made. LOL It sucks! xD I may have it prepared for next Metro though. As well as my possibility, Bayonetta. xDD

For the topic itself, my Lelouch should be all nice and ready, for the most part sometime this weekend or early next week. ^^ YAY 8D And by then I should be able to get started on my small mask idea. I just have to learn to hand sew again. have not done that in a while since I was working on Altair in December. O_O

Fast approaching Metro is fast approaching!

@PhantasmaJun- Ashura is looking very rad! The head piece is so lovely
@ShinobuWind- Whoo! Staying at the Marriot too. I've never been there, so I am glad to hear it is nice!

Most of my basic things for Yuuko are done! I am going to attempt to take pictures of the kimono tomorrow once I finish the bow (and find my camera ><). I just have to paint the flowers on kimono, and make the pipe! Ooo, and I made a pipe fox! He looks wonky in this picture though- http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2ujmjx5&s=6 Going to make Watanuki carry it about, uhaha.

@ Prota-Girl- I so agree I want to take pictures with you I love your cosplay! looking through your gallery=love!

@ swainboW- I love the Zero masqu. mask :3 very creative idea! bet its gonna look awesome on you!

@ batzy- Thanks sweetie pie <3 the pipe fox is to die for! so cute! I love how he looks draped around your shoulders and has the little head peaking up reminds me so much of holic :3. bet your kimono is sweet!

Batz; THE PIPE. hohoho...
Wonky pipe fox.
He can join the peace pipe circle OTL XD

Jun; Hehe thanks
I haven't had a chance to try it with the wig
Since it belongs to Batz's brother :3


Himawari wig is ordered. And I'm hoping my mom will either skip out on going fishing Wednesday, or be willing on Saturday (assuming she's off and after Hobby Lobby run for orange fabric [they best have more >__> ]). We'll get Watanuki's jacket/coat done :>

XO today sucked I was on my way to Joann fabrics when something sharp peels the tread off my near new front right tire and slightly gashes my back right tire which is a major draw back for my metrocon funds XD but it'll be ok better now then on the interstate on my way to metro :3 , but weird things like this tend to happen to me after I make a large purchase the day before I bought a new mp3 player for my car (better music for the drive) and then today the crap with my tire >.< anyways its all good we got the spare on and will be looking for some well priced tires tomorrow. lucky I had my younger and older brothers with me. now I am home and tired the heat drained all of my energy I am just ready to sit back work on my costume and watch the game go CELTICS GO!

This Lelouch here may be a little late on Saturday... I may change to him on Friday, depends on when my group and I actually get here, but I hope to make it to both shoots. ;_; But I am at a Hellsing panel from 3-4:00 P.M, but after that, I can quickly change into Lelouch and join you all for the rest of the day. Is everyone alright with that? I can share my number with Jun if it'll help? xD

its ok it will take some time to get everyone together anyway so don't feel rushed :3 there will be about a 15min time at the beginning just to make sure everyone is there and scout locations plus I'm sure once the awesome con fun is here alot of people will be late XD just by losing track of time or being late from events letting out . We will try to get together and get as many pictures as possible and split so you guys can enjoy the rest of the con.

btw what do you guys think about meeting up by the artist alley down by the stair case that isn't crowded (by bridge door that leads to the Embassy) that will make it easier for those staying at the Embassy and first time con goers. not to mention I will have a sign :3

Oh, I see. It shouldn't take me too long to get from Alucard to Lelouch. I use the same wig for both after all. lol Still, I wouldn't mind to give my cell to you, Jun, just in case I end up running a bit late. xD Cause on Friday, I may end up being so, forcing me to change from Tres to Lelouch. xD *flails* One too many cosplays for me. *headdesks*

Haha, I've been gone off this thread for a while~ Yay for a time and location! I'm also going to be bringing Euphemia with me (my Kurogane is also going to be Suzaku) as well because the puffball that is Fai is going to be hard to get into on Friday, because we're not checking in at the Embassy until then and are probably not going to get our room for a couple hours.

We're going to be doing a Tsubasa skit on Saturday, so you guys should definitely come and watch!

Almost a month to go! /still has so much work to do

I'm afraid I'm not going to have Sakura done by Metrocon. >_< My Tomoyo is off with family until right before the con, so she won't have time to work on her costume, and we both wanted to debut the costumes together, so I'm afraid it's a no-go. Such a pity, I was really looking forward to it...

But everyone else's costumes seem to be coming together nicely! C: I'll definitely be taking pictures if I see all of you.

06-25-2010, 01:39 AM

Jun; Hehe I just have made....
NO PROGRESS XD


Other than nearly having a mental breakdown today when I had my masquerade mask on (Zero style ;D ) and ALL of the glitter glue (aka everything that made it Zero except for the points on the top) came off. Luckily, it's been resolved with some super glue and more glitter glue ///defo packing both of those for Metro in case of another breakdown like that o.o;;;

Prota-Girl
06-29-2010, 02:28 AM
It all came off? O_O Ouch... >_< Oh man, this is reminding me I need to work on my own mask for the masquerade... I am really quite lost as to what to make it and how to make it. Time to go to the craft store...yet again. LOL And I'm sorry to hear about your mask, but at least you were able to fix it for the most part.

LOL I'm actually starting to think of like, some mild face paint sort of mask. I've seen it before and I thought it was awesome. xDD Eh, I'll brainstorm. I have at least 18 days left. O_O

swainboW
06-29-2010, 10:40 AM
Yesh. All of it. I had to honestly just stop what I was doing and stare in shock, anger, and slight horror at it.

Luckily, it all stayed together, it just peeled off the mask. So I could super glue the colour back on. Which seems to be holding thus far -too scared to put it back on now lol-

Not so good. XDDD I totally chose the wrong pattern for the coat - I used a robe/cape pattern, and it's way too big. So much needs to be taken in. D:

Other stuff is going good though! I finished the buckles on the shirt (marine vinyl spray-painted gold) and I'm really happy with how they came out, and unlike using clay or metal, they are very light and flexible! Which means they're about the only thing on the costume that are. LOL

I have new and accurate shoes now for Euphemia as well, but they are a pain to walk in XD Oh well, it's part of being a princess I guess!

also PhantasmaJun -- you look so amazing! <3

XD I'm definitely wearing something on my feet so the backs of the shoes don't rub :\ My feet have this love-hate relationship with high-heels. LOL

And coat progress! I cut and glued (so it doesn't fray) the fur today, and because of a very helpful parental suggestion, I'm going to attach it with snaps and velcro so I can remove it when I wash the coat.

Starting work on the shirt today :)

The coat without the blue designs on the shoulders and the fur. The lining looks weird here because it was only half sewn in. http://i682.photobucket.com/albums/vv183/kierichan/127334497.jpg

IMPORTANT! CLAMP GROUP PHOTOSHOOT TIMES AND MEETING PLACE!!!!

Friday: 4:00pm
Saturday: 4:00pm

we will meet inside upstairs next to the door which serves as the bridge entrance into the convention center. Because this is a known entrance and is next to the artist alley which makes it easier to find. I will have a sign of sorts, but I am not sure what it will be on yet but it will say CLAMP Photoshoot. Please try and be on time but I understand once the con kicks in you will get distracted so being a little late is no biggie after about 10 or 15 min we will scout different areas that are good for photos. I have updated the list if you have changed cosplay, are not going, and or the info is wrong please tell me so I can fix the list. If you see other CLAMP cosplayers who are not a part of the metro or cosplay forums feel free to pull them into the shoot :3 finally I will put Phantasmajun (jp band Phantasmagoria + guitarist of the band Jun aka my cosplay.com id i've had people ask what my id means :) ) on my badge aswell as my real name (Jasmine) so you will know who I am XD. I am also AnimeOtaku on the metro forums!

Alright, as For the Friday one, I have no idea if I'll even be at the con by then. *Ride is late a lot* But if i magically get there on time, I can change out of Tres to get there as Lelouch. ^^;

O Saturday, I have a Hellsing Panel that doesn't end till 4 O_o So I will be a bit late for that as well. *pulls collar* yeah, but since I have your cell number, if I get a bit late, can call you and let you know I am on my way. ^^ So yeah, just an FYI. But I'll try to get there as soon as I can. ^^

On the Code Geass thread (made by batzy lol) there is a girl who is planning to be Nunally's prison/ last episode outfit Friday (MionBloodyMess). And Nara-ken isn't going as Syaoran anymore, so he can be removed form the list :]




woo. Bought hair dye to have nice black(er) hair for Watanuki (my hair fails with dyes now ;; ) and I added a few missing details on Watanuki's jacket... I think I'm officially ready for Friday and Saturday :]

That's too bad D:

Hopefully EXPCon!
We plan on bringing out xxxHolic and Code Geass stuff to EXP (we're all of... 30 minutes from the centre where it's held so it's not a big deal lol) [and I think Batzy is going to bring her Fai stuff for a friend as well] So hopefully Ashura will be done by then ><v

Hi guys!~ I had so much fun with you guys~ I was Euphemia on Friday and couldn't make it, but I did come on Saturday in my Fai cosplay (giant fluff monster coat) with my best friend as Kurogane. It was so amazing to meet you guys and hang out! <3

I have a lot of pictures and video, so I'll be posting them soon. C:

Couldn't make it. ): It was raining when 4 came around and I was super tired from the night before. Plus, Subaru's eye patch/bandages were sooooo frustrating. :/ Sadly, no one recognized me anyway! DX

batzy
07-26-2010, 01:14 AM
Okay I think I found everyone on DA, and added you guys to my deviantwatch. Sorry if that is sort of creepy. Can't wait to see pictures if anyone has them! I can't get mine to upload anywhere besides facebook.

@JellybeanQueen I hope you can have it by EXP Con! I would so love to do another Clamp meet there one of the days!

@KurohaneShizumi I'm sorry you couldn't make it :( I can't believe I didn't see you! I would've been so happy to have seen a Subaru!
