Yah I have the same issue with my gunblade. :) I was working really furiously right before AM to finish the gunblade, I didn't. :( But when I got back... it just sits there when I should sand in the bevel and do all the detail work.

Um... I did put together all the info about my future costumes on my web sites! :D Now actually working on the costumes... there's a different story. :)

I think my first con next year will be Anime North (maybe Katsu... dunno yet) so hopefully I'll actually have stuff *done* at the con. :)

I've already started on my Sion Barzahd costume for Anime North 2003, it seemed a bit early, but really, I have a problem with keeping things on hold until the last minute, and if I did that it would never get done in time for the con! So I think an early start is good. I'm working on the shirt right now and got most of the materials I need, the toughest part will probably be getting the dog street logo on the back but we could always use on of those shirt press things that put images on shirts or whatever... Oh well, I cant wait until it gets all together, I got the dog collar too ^_^ feels weird to wear =/ ahh well, atleast I'm getting somewhere!

:P And you know what my workout videos would be? Imagine having the real thing... ^_^ now, for that, I definitely work out!

Cho, I say we lock up all your 'boys', give them each a sewing machine and teach them! Then we would have ourselves a REAL sweatshop! A cosplay sweatshop! Just think of all the slave labour possibilities! ^_^

A real sweat shop! I have all of Cho's little fanboys making me world class costumes at by beck and call! I know how horible they are, but if I were running one... just think of all the crazy fun! For me anyways...maybe not the workers. ^_^

:P to all of you, I didn't start that discussion...blame Plovar for that! ::grins::
On topic for a change: I have a few costumes I want to work on, I just need someone to beat me over the head with a mallet everytime I get side tracked. ^_^

Costume progress for ANY con is extremely slow right now for me. No money is my biggest problem. :D Yay. I have some patterns and random material laying about, but I have no time and no money. The holidays are going to be my big time search time. Especially because I'll have money. Yay! My biggest thing right now is my costume for Otakon 2003. @_@; And I'm STILL trying to think of something for Katsucon.

*insert snort* As started earlier in the thread, costume progress = slow not only because of money but because ... I can't decide on a frickin' costume! I've changed my mind so many times for Katsucon, its not funny.

I'm still trying to decide: Sumomo or Wakaba as a Black Rose Bride for katsucon? I haven't started either, I already have a wig for Sumomo and some materials for the gown. @_@ Argh! What to do! *falls over*

11-22-2002, 12:31 AM

Okay, first off, you are frighteningly excitable. And second, I am clearly a big silly dumb dumb head, because I don't know what you mean when you ask if it's going to be mascot-style. An explanation would be super excellent!

I was on a roll with my costumes..I got Irvine and wolfwood down..and I was doing pretty good with my Vincent costume, but now I've just come to a dead hault u_u; Prolly cos I have $0 for fabric material. And for tifa *needs to work out a little bit more* good thing it's not untill the summer time XD

...how am i "frighteningly excitable" ...? ;_;
is being happy about someone's costume idea a bad thing?
i personally dunt think so, its more like a compliment for a good idea if anything, but meh...take it as how u want... -_-;

anyway mascot style would be like the hamtaro at Nekocon 2002 or like our moogle

LOL^_^ i tend to WAY overplan my workload, so only a small fraction of what i plan actually gets finished....especially NOW all my guy buddies are like syaing they wanna REALLY cosplay again this year and stuff, my workload mite be increased by a LOT.

They seem to REALLY want to expand the KH group^_^; (lmao Abu n Aladdin X_X; scary.)


as for costume progress!!!!^____^

im 25% finished FFX-2 Yuna! ^0^ and my guns are 70% finished and they actually look...GOOD (*_*)

I need to hand-dye several things and make the shirt, but it shouldnt be toootooo hard i hope^_^ yey!

i wanna finish it before the end of January 2003, that way i can take piccies while my hair is still short^_^; just cuz i wanna grow it long for the prom thing^_^;;; change is good. :)

12-23-2002, 04:17 PM
YEY!!! im so happy, im just about finished collecting all the material for Yuna X-2, all i need is vibrant pink dye, and leather scraps for the pouch.

Oi! Matching all colours ANNND textures on Yuna X-2 is really difficult. i wasted over $20 on fabric i THOUGHT was good, but later found better etc.

But luckily yesterday i even found actual *knit* white cotton for her hoodie^_^ so now everything looks just great together^_^ time to go dye the side-skirt ^_^ i guess ill post pix on my site when things get even more rolling :)

Also, my sister started work on Paine as well^_^ Got the boots yesterday...megawatt sexy boots ^0^ and found studs as well. but we're gonna wait till it goes on sale.....$6 for just 25 little studs..just..well..sucks^_^;

I'm a newbie at cosplaying but i hoping to have Chii's butterfly dress done for AN03 !!

Maybe i'll even be able to get another costume done too??

*thinks*

Takuma-san
01-20-2003, 10:54 PM
Progress is currently terrible. I changed my plans half way through December, which threw everything into disorder. Design on the new costume is progressing, but I don't have sewing machine or time to gather the material at the moment, which is making me consider contracting part of the costume out, something that I would really like to avoid. On top of my own project, I've got another one which my friend asked of me, plus an already semi-completed costume that I want to bring to AN. If I do all three, I'd need a bloody van to take everything.

heki-chan
01-20-2003, 11:04 PM
nyamiko! *spaz* yaaaay!!! another butterfly chii! ^0^ i cant wait to meet u at AN :) :)


i hav some stuff of yunax2 up at our site^_^ but i dunt think ill put up any pix of it on cosplay.com until its 100% finished :)

01-21-2003, 10:16 AM
Well I thought I would add my costume progress here too ^_^

All of the costumes I have to do are for both Anime North and Toronto Trek. I have the Sailor Venus costume for my sister finished and am currently working on my Yaten Kou school uniform and Princess Kakyuu costume. They are both about 40% done. I also need to do a Seiya Kou school uniform and a Kimber costume for the Jem show at Anorth! Plus I wanted to do a Yuna costume from FFX-2 but don't even know where to start on that. ^_^'

'Allo All! I have returned...not like you missed me anyways ^-^
Good news for me and my costumes...boxing day sales are great, picked up all the fabric for my Luna costume for less than $30, plus found a bunch of extras that I'm not quite sure what to do with just yet... ^-^ Exams are coming up, so I'm going to spend my free time next week putting it together, I have the just the pattern and everything.
And while my happy mood is still in effect I give everyone big hugs! Can't wait to see all of you and your wonderful costumes in the future! :D

I havent started anything! I cant cause im 4 hours away from home in college! Damn school. i have to wait until i get home to get my grandmother to help me sew, that and i cant make any mesurements until i get back (april 26) cause im in the process of losing weight. cant measure myself now and have it not fit later :)
Thank god the costume is fairly simple, im going as Hitomi from the escaflowne movie. I guess you could say i have some things done, my eyes are already green and my hair is the exact same style, all i have to do is dye it.
Thats all i have done at the moment, i will most likely be screwed and have to go in another costume i have. Meryl from Trigun.

you have some? that would be great if you could sell some to me I only need like 1/2m or so. Do you have a picture of it? It kinda needs to be long-haired if you know what I mean, like the fur trim on squall's jacket

Scoti^_^ Walmart sells the long white-fur, tho it comes in small sheets about the size of a piece of paper.
but since u said u are using it for kilik's collar, u can just get lik 2 or 3 sheets and stitch them together?^_^
(the seams wont be noticeable at all^___^ bcuz long hair fur hides any and all mistakes wheeeee^___^)

goodluck:)
