What costumes do you plan to wear for Costume-Con? Making anything new? Have a hall costume you're really excited about?

I'm making something new for the Single Pattern, I'll be entering in the Historical, and as for hall costumes....don't really know! I have one new costume (Nomiya Maki concert outfit) I'll probably wear in the halls, but for the rest it may be just kimono. I don't have a lot of stuff that people at CC haven't already seen!

Well, right now, I may not make it because expenses here have gotten way out of hand. But, I am planning to remade and "upgrade" a costume I won with at a WorldCon a few years ago.
And I may do the historic masque, as a viking story teller doing Ray Steven's Erik the Awful.
And I am hoping to have Avatar roku and one of my Beast Wars Pokemon done, too.

I'll be going to Costume Con in 2015 and I'm already filled with ideas to submit for the masquerades and various contests. So super stoked!

This will be my 7th year of going to costume con, and I still have only ever made 2 costumes for it, (the Single Pattern Competition at CC26 and the Historical for CC30). I'm always organizing costuming events for other people and never seem to have time to dedicate to making stuff for myself.
So I have no idea if I'll have anything for this year. ^_^;
P.S. Organizing CC32 is eating my life! LOL

I feel you, Kaijugal. That's going to be me after the bid goes through.
I usually concentrate on a masquerade entry first and foremost, and intend to do Single Pattern or Future Fashion Folio if I have time. But so far, I haven't managed to leave myself enough time before the con to do another costume. We'll see how that goes for Denver!
(and Toronto. And Charleston...)

I keep seeing this topic and I'm all..."Ooooo, I'm going to make something fun and new."
Then, I remember sis and I aren't going to Denver and it makes me sad.
Hope everyone has a good time and makes awesome costumes so I can drool at the pics later. :)

Not going this year either. I'm moving to a new place and just won't have time or money.
I do plan on attending Toronto, though!
03-11-2013, 01:40 PM
I'm still working on a Historical outfit, but will have to see how this works out, timing-wise. We'll see how the next 4 weeks go. Also, the cost of some accessories may prevent me from having it ready for this year, so I may switch to a couple of hall projects.
04-26-2013, 01:03 AM
Hahah yep here it is, 3 weeks out, and I haven't left myself enough time to do Single Pattern. And I had such plans for those chaps!
We're getting our SF&F entry done, though, dammit, come hell or high water. I want to be watching for tornadoes out the car window, not hand-sewing!
05-07-2013, 05:48 AM

05-07-2013, 11:49 PM
I wish I had the time for more than one entry. How do you do it, Trixy? :D
We're going to finish, but probably at the very last minute. Other than our SF&F entry, I'm mostly bringing One Piece costumes and some costume pieces that work as normal clothing. I wish I had the time to fix Zoro's wig but I don't.
05-08-2013, 12:02 PM
Yeah I'm just barely managing to finish my SF&F. For the rest, dunno what I'll bring.
05-12-2013, 05:02 AM

05-18-2013, 12:48 AM
Ohhey. I totally forgot that this con has it's own section. I'll be bringing Hiccup tomorrow, and then generic steampunk for sunday. Stop by the AnomalyCon table since I'll be sitting there dyeing a wig all weekend...

Do we want to keep this thread going for 32 or start a new one? I started this originally for CC30 in Phoenix/Tempe.
If we're keeping it going, I'll contribute. I'm lightening my costuming load for the new year, so it's possible I'll only finish one of the two new costumes I want to make for CC32. My husband and I are working on Quidditch robes for Archon, so those will probably show up at the social or on Saturday.
We're really putting our hearts right now into our historical entry, which is the eponymous Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. If we happen to finish those and have time, we'd like to continue with the Captain Nemo costume we started for him. It's just that the Captain Nemo costume will require set pieces and things we cannot afford at the moment. Let's see how the year pans out.
