Which day is this? *thinking of cosplay-making plans*

10-28-2003, 06:53 PM

11-10-2003, 11:46 AM
good news so far...i'd give it a 70% chance that im going...*crosses fingers*
maybe next time my costume won't fall apart...lol.
*looks at hood in disgust*

11-10-2003, 12:06 PM
Bahh, I have too much on my hands for Katsu to join up T_T;

11-10-2003, 02:34 PM
hey, where are u guys staying...the hotel looks like to much $$....

11-10-2003, 07:17 PM
Dunno if going.. *hides from the Liz*

KuroBara and I discussed it on the drive home from Neko and we both need to see where we are financially and work/school wise closer to the date.

Madhatter, you were awesome. Bias tape rules.

I think I'm definately switching to Mauri for Katsu. Too freaking cold even in november for Lemina. >_>

11-11-2003, 08:58 AM
just a suggestion but there is a holiday inn .1 miles away from the hyatt (yes, i am a research whore and proud of it!) and it's $74 a night. better than the $124 at hyatt..so ya.

i've almost got my mom talked into going..so yay!

oh and i'm making a rosiel costume, which i am sooo excited about b/c i get to wear pvc..whahaha.
and i'll fix royce..

celes, what's your AIM??? me: sweetmisery8614

long live bias tape!!

11-17-2003, 08:56 AM
As of right now, I'm definately in for Katsu and Lunar. However, after the wind disaster that was Neko, I'm switching to Mauri's Priestess get-up. So if we get snowed in *looks at lizzy* I won't be freezing to death.

My aim is Celesdragon .. so original, right? I'll add you after work. ^^

11-17-2003, 11:56 AM
my search for pvc is getting me no where *cries*

only like 13 days left for me to pre-reg...so everyone cross your fingers, toes, arms, legs, eyes, ears...(ears?!)

but things are looking good..i'll know real soon...and about the hotel...maybe i should stay at the hyatt..just because of that snowed in comment *shudders with fear* blah, i need money lol

oh, and some good news..i found lunar at ebgames on saturday..so i got to play it for the first time..but i havn't gottent to my part yet..lol..so yay for me.

11-17-2003, 12:05 PM
no worries. I actually have been stalking out Home Depot and Lowes for random pieces of plastic and such for costumes. Got the bottom half of my Merielle (.hack) costume there already, and cut to size.

The end of pre-reg is Dec 31st. *just checked* I won't be able to pre-reg until after Thanksgiving anyway with my bills. ugh.

I still have to finish up Lunar EB. >_> I've had it for two years, but never actually sat down and finished it totally.

11-17-2003, 01:22 PM
i will be at the ota kon one but this one i do not really know if i can make it. sorry liz but i will try.
if so i will do hero complete with pendent

11-17-2003, 11:54 PM
that's okay kusai!

guys, btw, i'll be editting the original post for updated lunar line up... lol so far... it's everyone from neko. lmao!

11-18-2003, 08:54 AM
*pokes the Liz* no Lemina! Mauri!

11-18-2003, 11:59 PM
Madhatter: http://theatrehouse.com carries lots of pleather and vinyl. It's pricey, but good quality.

I will finish Jean!

11-19-2003, 01:22 PM
if my tax check comes in count me in. oh one more thing i'm gonna need a place to crash!

11-19-2003, 06:50 PM
KuroBara, i love u! lol...thanks for the help..u have no idea how long i've been looking for vinyl ^^

11-19-2003, 11:47 PM
Aww...I love you too!

11-20-2003, 03:40 PM
And I love everyone!
*hops onto the orgy bed*

11-20-2003, 03:57 PM
*dives onto the bed!* wheeeeeeeeeee!

11-20-2003, 08:06 PM
Lizzy is NOT allowed to have the middle!

11-20-2003, 10:57 PM
no floor for Stuuu!

11-21-2003, 11:49 AM
don't push me off the bed or i'll get u with mah whip! *evil laugh*

11-21-2003, 02:59 PM
hehehe, paradise is like disney land only with hookers.

11-21-2003, 03:19 PM
male hookers...that look like toshiya...(and maybe one like squal..for lizzy of course!)


11-21-2003, 06:32 PM
Mmmm.... squall.
Hey, Lizzy... why *isn't* there enough naked squall?

11-21-2003, 08:23 PM
"naked squall...is that a snack??" lol

11-21-2003, 08:53 PM
In Lizzy's eyes, more like a main course, I'm thinking.
And of course, he'd still be dessert afterwards. There's enough Squall to go around. ^^

11-22-2003, 11:47 AM
:::Walks in::: dear lord! what did you guys do to the lunar thread?!

BAD COSPLAYER BAD! back on topic... the GOS has spoken.

i was thinking having lunar on saturday again. jen, if we do ssx on friday sometime, put the dye in your hair and such... it'll give it some time to wash out... it won't be as red when you go back to work. ahhhh.... and you wear a wig for ruby... so... woo!

it's not set in stone. just a suggestion

11-22-2003, 01:36 PM
I second Saturday, sounds good to me. DDR group is in the morning, so afternoonish?

11-22-2003, 02:20 PM
hey alrigth con't me in i will do the hidden character Akira from DDR

11-22-2003, 08:16 PM
hey alrigth con't me in i will do the hidden character Akira from DDR

O.o go to the ddr thread.

11-22-2003, 09:44 PM
Mmm.. Saturday will work for Katsu for Lunar. I'll do .hack on friday, since I think I'm only going to have Mauri and Merielle for the whole time. Woo..

*mutters* I still say Lizzy doesn't get middle of the bed anymore. Battle damage doesn't look good in Lunar photos.

11-23-2003, 03:08 PM
meow... *makes random cat sounds.*

ah! found my vinyl ($16.95 a yd X.X but i would have paid the difference in shipping if i ordered it from a website)

now its crunch time..try to find the $$ for katsu and dir en grey 5 ugly kingdom DVD...choices, choices..^^;;

and thanks to celes, i'm not as worried as i was about making the deadline...

saturday sounds good to me...but just as long as i can enter my rosiel into the hall contest, all this sewing on vinyl better win me something! lol

11-23-2003, 08:24 PM
That's pretty much what I paid for my vinyl, it seems to be standard. Ok, so are we all agreed on Saturday afternoon?

11-23-2003, 08:43 PM
We've got a Mia! *dances with joy* the poster formerly known as tauruskatt (I forget her new l33t name) is making a mia! Joy of joys!

11-23-2003, 10:21 PM
yay that's me!

and i've had this name for awhile now silly ^^
mia's so cute! (and cosplayer friendly :p)


11-24-2003, 01:55 PM
ok then every thing is settled and have already begun work on my Nall outfit.

11-28-2003, 04:14 PM
ok, update time...

ugh...im not doing rosiel (don't even get me started...) and instead i'm going for something much simpler.. ^^

and i bought a digital camera today ^^ and my usb port is finally coperating with me. now i can take progress piccies, yay!

i'm cutting my hair soon, so royce will look more "authentic"

sending my registration out next week! ^^

umm..yea think thats it for now..hehehe...(i have got to lay of the sugar...lol)

11-28-2003, 05:16 PM
Hurrah, Nat! We must see the progress pics. What is your much simpler Rosiel replacement, out of curiosity?

11-28-2003, 06:47 PM
replacement... a simple kyo ^^ just the suit and tie thing, nothing big, but a nice second costume.

camera question: i know it says i can only have whatever number of KB per picture to upload it to c.com but how many pixels are we talkin? like vga, 1,2,or 3???? im so confused...technology hates me :(

11-28-2003, 08:19 PM
I change the biggest dimension on my pics to 550 or 600, then save them at medium quality. It's too bad your Rosiel didn't work out. Making jackets is hard, and making them out of vinyl is harder!

12-03-2003, 12:21 AM
*pops in for a sec*

i found a nice pattern for mia's dress whilst shopping 99cent sales, i'll probably not start the sewing of it till next week, i'll update later~ just too sad to see us slip down to the second page ^^;;

and yes, vinyl doesn't like to be sewn~ just ask my angry sewing machine!

but, some screenshots i found just for fun:

*pops back out again*

12-10-2003, 02:31 PM
just wanted to see how everyone is doing and how your costumes are coming...as for me..im stuck. sewing machine broke :( and to top it all off, my sewing teacher at school is getting on my last nerves..after "lecturing" me that i should never take my fabric home to cut it out on my own (even though she gave me permission to do so the class before since i have a checkered fabric and it would have taken me ages to cut it out in class..im making a gothic lolita by the way..im hoping to freak a few people out..lol) today she tryed to show me something and she stitched it wrong...whatever...grrrr..

oh and im planning on using the vinyl for something else...(if my screenshots every come out clear..grrr) kyo in the jealous pv...but hey, i'll probably choose a different costume tomorrow ^^

hows about u??

12-11-2003, 01:01 AM
bwhaha~ i for one have gotten swamped and have second-guessed all the currently existing parts of my costume, (fabric and pattern) isn't that awful of me?? sometimes i'm just too much of a perfectionist for myself. :p

if my paycheck comes in before the sale at the fabric store near me ends, i'll be buying some new fabric (i hadn't realized before but the fabric i found lying around the house has a faint pattern on the one side that shows through, it's kinda hard to describe, and you dont' really care anyway, soooo :p)

yeah, i don't want to start sewing till i know i've got the right material, but all my other costumes are actually near done (exactly two more little details to get right on each of my other two costumes, and that's all) so i expect i'll have the time to finish it soon after i start

madhatter~ i'm jealous- all i remember sewing in school was those silly looking pillows and a tote bag, lol
also, some of the other people on this thread already have their costumes done from previous wearings ^^;;


12-11-2003, 09:25 AM
Ha, I'm not one of those people! Jean is going. *nods* All I sewed in school was an ugly pillow & a felt teddy bear. It's nice that you get to choose your own project.

12-15-2003, 03:36 PM
stupid sewing machine....

think im getting a new one for christmas..*crosses fingers*

u guys should be glad that u didn't have my bipolar sewing teacher...u'd have gone crazy trying to do everything she says.

celes, did it snow yesterday??? all i got was a but load of rain..flooded my street and the pond thing in the backyard :(

ok, im off to eat the pocky i bought at suncoast (don't ask me why they started carrying it..its just completely random..but now i can have pocky all the time...sugar high..weee!)

12-15-2003, 06:39 PM
I've got my patterns and wig for Mauri, just still on the hunt for the right red fabric. And for the sewing machine to be unburied underneath all the Christmas wrapping supplies.

Yup, we got snow, and it's still all out there. Had to spent a good half hour digging out my car this morning, a hazard of parking in the street where the snow plows can dump everything. >_<

Our Suncoasts up here starting carrying Pocky and a few other snacks too. I think mine now has 4 types of Pocky, the fruit gummis, and two types of Green tea now. But no Men's Pocky. :sulk:

12-15-2003, 08:40 PM
I'm still done my costume. ^^
Screw Men's Pocky... Pocky G is where it's at. Hard and Rich, baby.

We weren't dumped on, snow in the am and then it turned to rain to wash the snow away. Which was fun when it froze overnight. o.O

And as for the pillow talk... hehehe... I made a rabbit pillow which isn't ugly to me. I'm sure it is to everyone else, but I think it's adorable. I also made a pink drawstring tote bag. I think that's about all the sewing I did, but most of it was in home ec in middle scool. I don't think I did any sewing in high school. Well, I tried to at home, but I sucked at it, so I'd get frustrated and give up. I suck a little less now, but I'm still learning. (Ruby was all hand-done because my machine is still broken.. I hope it gets fixed soon because I don't want to hand sew anymore)

12-18-2003, 11:52 PM
ruby looks so cute tho!!! hehe, not that that really has anything to do with the fact that she's handsewn or not, i give you props for patience, you know that ;) but i digress...you're lucky (or smart, you decide) that the fabric for her didn't require any lining or finished edges :)

i'll try to get the basement cleaned up (and hopefully me moved down there O.o) around/after christmas~ then we can have big cosplay making sessions down there, cause there's at least two machines that won't consistantly eat fabric, and a serger if it ever gets fixed :p


suncoast pocky's so overpriced, i only get it at cons or occasional splurges ~ otherwise *Dunkaroo's* are where it's at for me! yummmm....cookies and frosting- who says americans haven't got a few bright ideas for injecting sugar into our youth, eh? :bigtu:

12-19-2003, 11:46 AM
it's snowing!!!!EEEEE!!!

on my last day of school before winter break.it started while we were watching a christmas carol..how cool is that?!
oh and i ordered my cap ang gown today ^^ 6 months from yesterday i'll finally be out of the hell hole some call high school..weee!

ok, i have to go rap presents before my dad gets back.. and t4uru$k4tt has made me hungry..lol

12-19-2003, 07:41 PM

the lunar group will meet at 2 (after c.com shoot) on saturday. we will meet bottom level behind the escalators. (same place at c.com shoot)

12-20-2003, 12:02 AM
whoohoo~ we gotta time :)

we're meeting behind the stairs?...oooh, sounds kinky liz :p

guess what i got for free today?? that little black lunar book like you had! (somebody was gonna throw it away, so i took it ^^)


12-20-2003, 12:56 PM
there are escalators? coolness...

sounds good to me, just glad we won't be next to a freezing outdoor pool.. *shivvers*)

12-20-2003, 06:19 PM
Sounds good to me.

Woot, *spies Natalie's post* you got the siggie to work then?

12-21-2003, 02:47 PM
yep..found a hosting site *pats herself on the back* suprised it worked concidering computers hate me..lol.

got my sewing machine today ^^ yay! and the woman who sold it to me was so nice..she game me 30% the next time i buy something b/c im a sewing student.

12-30-2003, 12:01 PM
ok..just wanted to pop in and say hi...i have to give up my computer for like a week b/c im taking it in to be wiped clean...which means no c.com for a week *cries*
guess this means more time with my sewing machine *hugs*

im taking a break from the horror that is spray paint..lol..suprised i havn't passed out yet..

so how is everyone elses costume making coming along???

and if i don't talk to u tonight..see yas in a week :(

12-30-2003, 07:27 PM
aw, that's sad. however, being without a computer often makes one productive in other ways, so, at least you'll have more time with that, right?

I...still haven't started. LoL.

but i will. eventually. just a quick lil robe-y thing and fabric paint. ^^;;

12-30-2003, 07:32 PM

hehe, now, to get it to me! *thinks*


12-31-2003, 10:34 AM
Speaking of tunic patterns... *looks at lizzy*
Eh. Not like I can sew right now anyway.
I was gonna say, let's have everyone up here, but... umm.... maybe sometime NEXT week? I've got more PGSM, and I've been working on your You're Under Arrest, too.

12-31-2003, 11:33 AM
Ok, so lizzy found katt's tunic pattern, katt found a store with my hooded sweatshirt, now I guess this means I need to find something for someone.

12-31-2003, 11:41 AM
you could find me a naked squall and we'll call it even. ::winks::

:::waves at madhatter and blows kisses:::

NEXT week... as you put it.... is great. you know me... i work day shift so it's fine. we need to start crackin on this shit. all of us should meet up or something

01-01-2004, 08:45 AM

im cutting my hair soon..to be more royce-like..lol..ummm

ok..i've vented..im ok..*breath in..breath out..wide open spaces..wide open spaces.*


01-13-2004, 08:30 PM
*must not panic about not having started anything yet... must not panic...*

01-13-2004, 09:14 PM
...must start cutting out the pattern!

01-15-2004, 01:11 AM
*decides not to panic*

come friday i will show you all my pretty fabric i bought on sale today. it's so...pretty...and...pink....and also, it's velvety (did i mention *pretty!*) and believe it or not it was *Cheaper* then the stuff i'd resigned myself to buying. (which makes it even prettier...*grin*) Whoohoo!
also i found some blue blanket edging stuff that'll work for trim. (yeah, don't ask, it'll work :p)


01-15-2004, 01:38 AM
katt-- bias tape is your friend. ::Thinks about the blue/purple stuff for mia::

01-15-2004, 11:46 AM
biased tape forever!!

lol..its my best friend..i don't think i'll ever make a costume without it..thehe

01-15-2004, 05:08 PM
Bias tape, or a lotta fabric paint... lol.
I was going to use bias tape for my Zoe jeans, but I think I might just paint it on, since it's denim and all.
Guys, I had a weak moment and bought one of those handy stitch things. *ashamed* I don't know if it works well or not, but since I still lack sewing machine... *sigh* Plus I thought it might be useful at cons for emergencies since it's so small and packable.

01-16-2004, 08:56 PM
All hail the Bias tape! So many uses and second only to duct tape!

Those handy stitch things? Works well for a month.. and then break horribly. I relied on one during last summer to get me though. I did Brian's Kaiba coat, and it broke on the finishing piece, before I even got halfway through on my own cosplays for otakon 03. Save it only for quick touches. >_<

01-16-2004, 10:10 PM
Gah, handy stitch things suck! Can you still return it? It's better to put the money from that aside and save for a real machine. Mine was ~$93 at Wal-Mart.

01-17-2004, 11:14 AM
o.O Mine was $9. I don't need to return it, the humor factor is worth spending the $9. ^_^ I have a real machine, but it's broken, and my mother took it to get it fixed and I haven't seen it since. It's almost timw to start bugging her about it.

01-17-2004, 11:21 PM
you always have mine... now that i know how to use it for sure!

01-19-2004, 06:43 PM
I meant my sewing machine was $93- not the handy stitch! That POS was $30, I believe. Celes and I split it.

01-19-2004, 09:53 PM
LoL-- I know what you meant. Still, $9 is like, nothing, so it does't bother me. I'll still prolly bring it to cons, you know, in case I wanna stitch up the curtains or something... hehehe

01-19-2004, 11:03 PM
that's a good idea, if the curtains are stitched up it's impossible to open them at 7am!

01-22-2004, 02:02 PM
LoL! ><

...and to stitch them up while they are still hanging up too...

mia's lookin good, but i ran out of bias tape~ must go buy more now...^^

Celes~ i saw this show where this girl made her prom dress out of duct tape... Oi. it was pretty too.... @.@


01-25-2004, 12:10 PM
how is everyone doing on their costumes????? ::looks at kuro, celes, and kat:: you have less than 3 weeks. hahahaha

01-25-2004, 12:23 PM
all i have to do is fix the neckline :p

(though my kyo isn't even halfway done..*smacks herself for being lazy*)

good luck everyone!

01-25-2004, 04:12 PM
Less than 3 weeks? *twitch*
I .... need to order feathers. Like, tomorrow morning.

01-27-2004, 12:05 AM
...okay, i'm not worried, just need to finish sewing on the bias tape...




02-02-2004, 08:19 PM
so... how's it going? ::nudges celes and kat::

02-04-2004, 05:13 PM
Hey, I know this is last minute. But my friend Des and I will will be at Katsu as Mauri and Ronfar. Hope to see you guys there.

02-04-2004, 05:37 PM
<--- almost finished ^^
9 days..eeee!

nightide, im sure you are more than welcome to join our little group if u are planning on being in costume on saturday...let us know, we'd be happy to have you.

02-04-2004, 05:58 PM
Why am I such a slacker?

02-04-2004, 06:50 PM
Almost done!

02-04-2004, 07:06 PM
Working on it! Got the rest of Brian's fabric for Mystere the other day.

02-04-2004, 08:47 PM
Hey, I know this is last minute. But my friend Des and I will will be at Katsu as Mauri and Ronfar. Hope to see you guys there.

02-04-2004, 11:16 PM
hey folks, I hope you don't mind if I show up also. I won't have an actual costume persay, but I do like lunar a lot and want to take pictures!
Bring us cookies.

Just kidding, of course you're welcome.

02-04-2004, 11:50 PM

02-05-2004, 11:55 AM

*laughs* This time it's each girl on their own, I'll be busy keeping my top in place. Why the heck didn't I pick Ninja Jean?

At least my top is secure. We just have to hope for no sudden gusts of wind for a Marylin Monroe effect.

Nah, I'll just wear bike shorts under it again. ^^

since the c.com shoot was moved time-wise to 2:30 (i believe), we'll be having our's at 3, still the same place.
