I noticed that this board is inactive, so I decided to jump in and start a new thread in looking forward to the future AFO 5.

I'm kind of bummed, however, that the AFO 5 website isn't up. Anyway, my friends and I are doing the entire group (Rio, Maya, Maki, Yuugi, Navel, and Lillica) from Burn Up Excess. We also have plans to do a skit. ^^ Hopefully everything goes well, still the best laid plans usually fall apart.

So, is anyone else going?

I might be going I am not sure since I am going to go to JACON. I might not have enough money or can convince my Aunt to take me. I went to AFO3, but couldn't go to AFO4 because my mom was really sick. If I do go, I would have My Misha, A Coo Erhard, and I probablly will have oodles more since I will be cosplaying over the summer.

Thanks for making this thread,
Rei (Rachel)

Hopefully I will be going! Not sure who I'm cosplaying as since this is only my second con, and I'm not all that great at sewing yet! Though someone coming with me is going to do morpheus from the Matrix!!!!! and Beat from jet set radio, we are allowed to have rollar blades in there right? Anyway!!!!!!! EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

I'll be at AFO for two or three of the days. Planning on wearing my DOOM Mai and Faye Valentine, and possibly something else.

spec-ted; MXC was hot but WONDERFUL. XD i'm not saying any more except for that it's playing after cosplay and before judging and that i'm the Speed Racer.

If you've got about $7-12 bucks, you could probably make it out of foam. Jo-anns sells foam padding for about $2-3, which you could cover with either black fun-foam or even hard-felt covering to make the huge handcuffs. :cool: Inexpensive, lightweight, and surprisingly durable... cosplay at its best, I say!

...now if I could just think of an inexpensive way to make "Furaiken", Ky Kiske's sword, before AFO5. x_x Last time it turned out to be a bit more in cost than I had originally perceived.

that sounds good, but to make one that actually opens and works? @_@ that's another story...

Hi there! I'll be going to AFO as Melfina (Outlaw Star), Subaru (.hack//SIGN), and, if I finish it in time, Soujirou (Rurouni Kenshin). I hope to see you all there.

...LoL, well then I ask ya --- how much exactly were you planning on spending on making the handcuffs? :thumbsup: If your budget's decent enough, you could have a locking mechanism made on them, though you'd be sacrificing time, funds, and the "lighter weighted prop". Not that you should be discouraged in the least, I actually think it can be done without spending an arm & a leg. But keeping in mind how narrow the walking space was last year(even with the new 'auditorium sized convention center', it's still going to be a bit congested in the halls), that would hinder me from making anything too delicate or huge prop-wise.

...which is also why I'm thinking of either going without or reinforcing the prop sword for Ky Kiske; since I know it might take a couple bumps, drops, and bruises. Aaaaaanyway, if I can find the site again; I'll send ya' a couple links on past Bridget cosplayers w/the handcuffs and if possible; construction techniques. :)

Ah, no problem. Besides, I'm in nearly the same boat -- trying to get my GGXX Ky Kiske done in time too! :thumbsup: I'm still not sure exactly where/when at AFO on Saturday we're meeting up for GGXX photos, but I'll ask the LJ peeps; 'cause that's where I heard the idea for the GGXX/Isuka cosplay theme in the first place.

Oh, and here's the links I mentioned previously:
GGXX Cosplayers (Japanese) (http://cosplay-gg.hp.infoseek.co.jp/)
Rogue & Flexei(Videogame Cosplay Section) (http://rogueandflexei.com:8900/cosplay/gamecosttext.gif)

Heh, hopefully this year won't be too small from people thinking last year's was bad. It was my first anime con, and I think it was bad partially because it's the first time at that hotel. Yea it's expensive for it, but you can always just get another hotel to stay at for much cheaper :) Either way, got a group of 12 including me going, 3 rooms total. Hoping to see you all there. And it should be bigger this year as the hotel added on a bunch of new con space, so bigger game room and more room to walk and stuff! wootz :) And T, I totally remember you though I doubt you do me, I was with the group consisting of syndal/marie/tanya and others :) lol I was Rik from Digi-charat last year. Oh and on the upside this year I won't look like a moron trying to play DDR again, rofl, much practice.
