<_< I thought a new thread about the topic should be posted since the old thread might have people confused as to when the group is now planned for. I hope you don't mind Ochika! ;.;

Yes, lets invade downtown Toronto garbed in ancient china-style costumes! XD wootness!!

We'll start the list from scratch just in case anyone has changed thier mind. ^^

eeee! ^___^ Dynasty Warriors! I would love to see some of the DW cosplayers at CNA. =O I would love to do Yue Ying, but I really have no idea how I would go about doing that, and honestly, I think it would look really bad ^^;;. I'm not that great at making costumes at the moment ._.

But yeah, I'm excited to see more DW cosplayers ^____^.

>> CNAnime already?!? Lol, I'm one to talk, I was the one daydreaming at work today about what I should start making.

lol! Well this was originally planned for AN but when was moved back to CNAnime. ^^ It's all in the old thread but I figure tht most people aren't reading it because they think "Hey, AN's past now so I don't have to bother reading this thread. It's too late to join"

Had I not been following the thread, I would be thinking that. ^^ This way it gives other people a chance to find out about it. =)

i did diao chan at an and wong most beautiful ^_^ and no im not mad mekou.. i was about to type it up anyway x.X seeing as it was MY idea XD. anyway im hopeing to get loads of dw chars, so far i think theirs like 11 people in the group and we're always glade to see more people join, and as for not knowing how to do it you can always ask me or perhaps mekou for sugestions and tips. and im hopeing to get a few more dynasty warriors sewing sleepovers happening. we had like 3 to try and get costumes for AN ^_^ v,, and dont worry about not thinking youd do i good job. iv only made like 4 costumes ( all really crappy) and i still managed to win most beautiful XD

megumi_mitsukai

LIES, say! LIES! XDDD;;;

>__> Well actually, I've only seen your Diao Chan costume which was really pretty! (I stared at for quite some time thinking that it looked familiar then figured it was Diao Chan, but I wasn't able to get around to getting your picture because either you happened to be too far away or your were walking too fast and my sandals were hurting my feet and I was also too lazy to walk that far/fast so I just stared at the prettiness of it ^^... w00t. Run-on sentence ^^. I did manage to take a picture of it when you were in the masquerade but it didn't turn out too well T__T;.).

Hum hum. >_> I think I'm more concerned about the armor and the weapon Yue Ying has if anything ^^;. Then I can be concerned about the designs on the fabric XD;;.

Ochika
05-24-2004, 07:37 PM
i dont think her costume would be that dificult, maybe just that dragon pring on her leg things, but everything els is solvable, even the weapon. heh and thanks ofr the complemnts, i hated the top so much, i didnt the fabric painting the night before and it shows. and as for the masq i was supose to have my sun shang with me but she left feeling sick like 20 minutes before. but since half my costumes are already done for cna iv got time to help other dw coplsayers with their costumes, i could probly do the wepon or other parts for you if ya really wana join... and to top it off if you join my group in the maq you'll all be considered journymen XD go most beautiful award!

Mekou
05-24-2004, 07:38 PM
You can always try designing a simpler version of the outfit. =) Still keeping the same basic design but making the fabric and armour more simple. I've had a bit of fun doing this for a couple characters..(Like Sun Ce!!!) Yes...you can tell I want someone to be Sun Ce. ;_;

And woot for run on sentences! I lost my breath just reading it! XD

Nagii
05-29-2004, 05:17 PM

Ochika
05-29-2004, 05:47 PM
well more like the past >_>. but i mean there's a pretty lil fountain thingy on young street ( i think its there) or around there and it was so pretty and i thought it would be a nice place. and maybe go to spadina XD

Scoti
05-29-2004, 06:56 PM
lol hey maybe you'll get free stuff on spadina for proudly displaying historical figures!....sort of

Ochika: I think I know what your talking about but I think that fountain is on Queen

Mekou
05-29-2004, 07:43 PM
That would be funny actually. XD We're walking along minding our own business then someone comes up to us and gives us..stuff. o.0 lol!

Ochika
05-29-2004, 08:47 PM
i thinks its around queen and young but i dont know, the street didnt have a sighn on it even though its a main road >_> but YES! he need to take 45 minutes out of con time and strut up young, along queens, and to spadina XD and then take the street cars back XD

Nagii
05-29-2004, 09:38 PM
People stuck in the Future from the Past...does that sound better?

Ochika
05-29-2004, 09:41 PM
ahh... im confused now...YOU MADE ME USE MY BRAIN *cries*

Nagii
05-29-2004, 10:38 PM

I wouldn't mind going around random places and taking photos XD;. Scaring normals is fun ^^. The fountain place sounds pretty =).

Ochika
05-30-2004, 01:49 PM
theres also that lil park on spadina its all pretty too. but we have to for sure go down to spadina and strut around there, and its always so busy so we'll get lot of attention, but we gotta be carefull incase people in the group have fragile stuff

Nagii
05-30-2004, 09:35 PM
what if someone is stupid enough to rob us?

Ochika
05-30-2004, 09:50 PM
lol, we're gona be walking around with weapons XD i dont think people are that stupied... ancient chinese MOB!!

Nagii
05-31-2004, 06:50 PM
lol
XD;;

Ryukka
05-31-2004, 09:10 PM
The thing is with large props (such as their weapons) might consern security gaurds/police while out in public places...so I wouldn't sugest taking them with you. I know some people have been harrassed by them before about props before they went to a convention because they didn't have it covered. The main concern being it possably alarming to anyone whos walking around the area...so yeah O_o;

megumi_mitsukai
06-01-2004, 02:05 AM
^^;;;

By the way, I was wondering if anyone had pictures of either Yue Ying's weapon... any version is fine at the moment, lol. x.X; I'm having trouble finding good pics of it where I can see the detail and stuff ^^. Or the basic shape for that matter.

Or the dragon design at the side of her leg things XD;.

Thanks a bunch =O!.

XD How's everyone's costume doing? ^^? Has everybody started their's yet? XD Megu hasn't... she still has school so all she can do is plan for it ^^;;;;.

mikcy
06-07-2004, 10:34 PM
The basic outfit of mine is cut out and needs to be sewn. I can't work on it till after exams aka next week. X.x

Scoti
06-08-2004, 07:47 AM
I've started cutting out all the clothing under Lu Bu's armor. Right now I'm experimenting making the armor and i have no idea how I'm going to make the dragon heads yet...But I always figure out something in the end...

Squall1882
06-08-2004, 10:07 AM
Hey guys I think I finally decided on doing a Gan Ning costume.. lol.. too many people to choose from..

Scoti
06-08-2004, 11:48 AM
Gan Ning! are you planning on doing all the body art?

Squall1882
06-08-2004, 12:31 PM
Yeah... the body paint I'm not sure of.. I want to, but it depends on how much money my "big project" costume drains me of.. so basically on my financial situation.. Oh.. plus I'm doing the Dynasty Warriors 4 version, with the shirt so a lot will be covered.

Mekou
06-08-2004, 02:08 PM
Woo Gan Ning! =D I'm sure you're gonna look awesome! ^.^

Scoti - I saw a japanese Dynasty Warriors cosplay site where a Lu Bu cosplayers simply drew on the lion heads. It looks a LOT better than you might think. From certain angles it looks like it was 3D anyway. It's jsut a suggestion thought. Just in case it gets to a week befoe the con and you still haven't figured anything out. XD

After next week I'll be able to go and buy the fabric I need. I wanna try making her outfit as accurate as possible and I will even dye fabric. (I will be gradient dying the sleeves anyway. ^_^). There's only a few things I have yet to figure out but I know I will eventually. =D

Can't wait to see everyone's costumes now! *.* It's gonna be so awesome!

mikcy
06-08-2004, 02:39 PM
<.< >.>

I'm considering making a male character too. Mainly someone from Wu because I have some red fabric, sooo ya. ;D Many people from Wu are taken though and I have no idea which versions. x.x;

Hmmm who could I bug to wear DW4 Zhen Ji...*thinks* I might have to do someone else anyway because I think I lost my zhen ji patterns :waaaah: If I don't find them, I'll die. ;_;

Ryukka
06-11-2004, 07:16 PM
XD ahaha Lui Bei's so unloved. Poor hubby.

erm.. I'm lazy and haven't done anything to Sun since where she was at for AN @_@; someone hit me XD

Ochika
06-11-2004, 08:19 PM
*whacks ryukka with a paper fan....sanzo style*
that help??

megumi_mitsukai
06-11-2004, 09:02 PM
ooo!!!! Paper fan! *steals* =O!

By the way, how do you gradient dye? o.O;;;; I haven't done that before ^^;;. And I need to do that for the sleeves as well =O.

mikcy
06-11-2004, 09:24 PM
Minako taught me how, but I forget where I put the instructions. It's really simple though. It's something like dipping how much you want to be dyed for 30 minutes straight and moving around the fabric piece for 30 minutes. It's annoying, but I end up always watching X/1999 for some reason to pass the time. XD Then I think you hang it so it drips down then let it dry. I forget. XD Something like that. Yeah, just test it out a few times.

For Zhen Ji, I can't start on her till Daishi and Shinya are done. X.x; I'll finish it in time don't worry. :P

megumi_mitsukai
06-11-2004, 09:52 PM
=O!!! Did somebody say SHINYA?!!!!!!111one11!!! XD

ooo... must learn how to gradient dye =O. Time consuming I see o.O;;;;.

mikcy
06-13-2004, 12:32 PM
Is anyone making Da Qiao DW4?

=O!!! Did somebody say SHINYA?!!!!!!111one11!!! XD

Yes. Yes I did. :D

Mekou
06-13-2004, 12:35 PM
I'm making Da Qiao from DW4. ^^;;

mikcy
06-13-2004, 12:50 PM
Zhen Ji.. I lost the patterns, so.. ;_______; :waaaah: I rather not make it allll over again. ;_; Sooo much work. I'm trying to think of another character in which I can use the fabric I have... Zhang He Dw4? I think that's taken though.. *curls up into a ball*

Ochika
06-13-2004, 02:01 PM
no ones doing him >_> if ya wana, and sorry about losing your patters ;_; but if ya do a guy char it wont be all girls for the masqurade skit...that is if your gona be in it

mikcy
06-13-2004, 03:01 PM
I found some of the collar randomly, but I need all the other pieces. >.< I think mom threw them out >=( She was cleaning the basement not too long ago and she tends to throw out the tissue paper I use. KPODSFK PLEASE NO. I have all of Zhen Ji that I've done spread out on my bed and it's so pretty. >.> *goes to find patterns* Oh come out come out where you are....

Mekou
06-13-2004, 03:06 PM
I really hope you find your pattern. ^_^ You'd make a pretty Zhen Ji. <3

Squall1882
06-13-2004, 03:57 PM
Lol.. so I've had a little bit of luck making my Gan Ning costume (DW4).. the hard part is finding the right fabrics to make it out of.. lol.. and the pants fabric is really givin me a hard time.. I can't find it anywhere.. I've tried Queen Street, various FabricLands and BouClaire's.. anyone have any suggestions?

Mekou
06-13-2004, 04:17 PM
I think your best bet (for accuracy) would be to buy a fabric to be the base colours, then dye it.

Personally I think something that is the closest colour, even if solid, would still looks great. ^_^

Ochika
06-13-2004, 04:17 PM
id go with a dark blood red velvet type material, you can get an immitation velvet type thing ( i got some for my friend guan yu costume) and its really nice, good for making that shinny two tone type look]

mikcy
06-13-2004, 05:01 PM
velvelt = a lot O.O but worth every penny<3333

>.> still looking. I might just do Zhang he, but I won't say anything yet because I will check one more time around here and at my dad's house. Ah, just for fun... how would one make those little thingys on his hand and the purpleness on his shoulderchestneck?

http://www.yueying.net/dw/index.php?pid=koushiki/ssm3/zhang_he2.jpg

Ochika
06-13-2004, 05:21 PM
well the claws can be dont with rake spike things and the shoulders would be purple with gold lining stuff

Mekou
06-13-2004, 07:20 PM
His "hand thingies" XD can be made with some craft foam (for a strong yet flexible base form, cardboard (for the claws =3), some paint (acyrlic would be best), and probably a few things you may find around the house. ^_^;

I'm not entirely sure how to make the armour but I'm sure that if you wish to know, you could post a thread in the VG cosplay forum and peopel will give you helpful tips. =D

Ochika
06-13-2004, 07:58 PM
look at my new signature XD VVVVVVVVVVV sexy!

Mekou
06-13-2004, 08:01 PM
You can't use angelfire for pics. ^^ Use www.photobucket.com it works great. =D

Ochika
06-13-2004, 08:15 PM

Mekou

mikcy
06-15-2004, 12:05 AM
Cage Shinya XD

<.< >.> Yess. I like swords too.

I'm still hunting it down. I will look one more day on Wednesday when I'm at my dad's. If I can't find it, I will start making Zhang He. *pets Zhen Ji* I looked for armor tutor. and stuff and um it's easier than I thought O.O

Squall1882
06-16-2004, 07:54 AM
Yeah!! My extra hunting payed off!! I went to Fabricland in Scarborough and found the last bits of fabric I needed for my Gan Ning costume!! Wow.. almost everything is 40% or more off there right now.. all the way to the end of the month!! Good time to stock up!

**On a side note my GF got all the fabric to make a Lulu costume (the main dress) for a whole $17.50!! ha ha ha

mikcy
06-18-2004, 04:05 PM
Zhang He. Yup. That's me. I can't wait to make the armor. First time ever XD Fear my claws. :)

Zhang He. Yup. That's me. I can't wait to make the armor. First time ever XD Fear my claws. :)

I would love to see how the claws turn out =). You should go around saying "Shall we dance?" XD; Or dance around the con ^__^!

Ryukka
06-20-2004, 10:11 PM
Dancing...haha...DW Can-can line o_o;;;

...I shouldn't be up at 11 at night functioning on 2 hours of sleep when I have an early exam the next day...does things to my head XDD

mikcy
06-21-2004, 12:08 AM

mikcy
06-29-2004, 12:51 AM
sodpfksa I can't start till after Otakon and yes I will have it done, but AHHH I CAN'T WAIT TO START IT. I just know Zhang He will be my favourite outfit for a long time. I'm going to go fabric shopping on Wednesday if fabric Land is still having the sale. I can't wait to make the armor. I'm trying to finish Shinya and Daishi, so I can start it. XD The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the painting.

There's no love for the beautiful people. XD

Mekou
06-29-2004, 12:57 AM
Horrah for beautiful people! XD

For the past couple of days I've been browsing through various japanese sites with DW cosplay..it's a great inspiration! =D I can't wait to start it now *___*

Can't wait do do the skit too XD It's hilarious!

mikcy
06-29-2004, 01:06 AM
I love the skit. XD

megumi_mitsukai
06-29-2004, 01:44 AM
Nyo~ What is the skit gonna be about? o.o;

Ochika
06-29-2004, 11:44 AM
add me to mesanger or aim and ill send it to you >.> Little_elf_girl@hotmail.com or Rien Shiana (aim)

Ryukka

Zhang He has the best lines XD

mikcy
06-30-2004, 12:34 AM
I'm guessing I can't wear my claws on stage can I? YOu know.. because of the mirror part.

Mekou
06-30-2004, 12:59 AM
If you could figure out a way to do the mirror part with the claws I'm sure you could keep them on for the masq. XD

I must practice falling to the floor and getting up realyl quickly /without/ my skirt flying up. o__o; oh joy...XD

mikcy
06-30-2004, 01:50 AM
Well, the falling part wouldn't work with the claws either because I have to fall and make sure I don't hurt my armor on my shoulders which means I'd have to fall over using my hands. jiasjd damn. I'll just wear them around the whole day then give them to my friend to look after. She'd love that. XD

megumi_mitsukai
07-01-2004, 12:58 AM
XD Thanks Ochika for the script! <3 <3 ^^

Bweee... maybe you can take off the claws during the mirror part of something? o.O;;; Zhang He isn't the same without his claws x.X;;; ^__^;;

O_O;;;

:dance:

Mekou
07-01-2004, 03:47 AM
I love the script so much...XD We should have some BG music from the game playing under our voices. X3

mikcy
07-01-2004, 03:51 AM
I was thinking maybe we could add something in where I can be like Hold this love ^_^ *hands claws* Hahah maybe I can be like *bends over and winks and puts claws on the ground*

..PLEASE NO O.O;

Though, it'd work because I can fall over beside my claws, but nooo I will not do that. XD

nyo~~ random question: When are you going to record the skit? (well... obviously not in this month XD)

Alsoooo... Megu's having trouble figuring out how she'll do the leg... thing o.O;; the skirt. Have any advice for meh? T___T;;;

mikcy
07-12-2004, 10:43 PM
I was thinking. Are we going to have a DW photo shoot AFTER cna because lot's of people tend to forget things or won't be done for CNA. *shrugs* Just a thought.

Ochika
07-12-2004, 10:46 PM
i guess that can be arranged....

and as for recording the skit...ummm >.> i will have to put a date together to get all the actors together and stuff

Mekou
07-12-2004, 10:59 PM
It'll have to be the very next weekend after CNA then since I know I'll be busy getting ready to go back to school after CNA. x.x;;

mikcy
07-14-2004, 07:30 PM
Yeah, we need to practice and I think the week after would be the best time for the photoshoot if it happens.

Heyyy since I'm here. It's time for moi to ask a question. Two infact. One being, what should I make the claws out of? I mean, I have foam, but what about the um.. actual claws? XD The other one is, what would be the best way to make the under clothes for Zhang He? Just buy a brown body suit? My dad thinks it's just black and in the game it looks black top brown bottom, but I'm weird like that. XP Anyway, should I just buy a bodysuit? Like a Spandex or a polyester type? I'm not really sure if it should be a bodysuit anyway. *shrugs and runs off*

Ochika
07-14-2004, 08:25 PM
lol. well you could make the claws out of rake spikes >.> and as for the body suit. its definatly brown >.>

Mekou
07-14-2004, 10:10 PM
Keep in mind that it shouldn't be made out of something that would actually /hurt/ people (aka the rake spikes. x.x) I suppose I mean anything non pointy, sharp or metal.

Ryukka
07-14-2004, 10:12 PM
Use craft foam for the spikes and spray paint them, light and cheap *nodnod*

Ochika
07-14-2004, 11:30 PM
pssh screw you XP i say rake SPIKES!!! HAZAAAA HAVE-AT-YOU, onguard XD

Mekou
07-15-2004, 12:41 AM
XP Ho ho ho

I suppose rake spikes would be okay so long as they're the plastic kind...so HA! XD

Next week...will start on Da Qiao! O__O; Fan...I'm thinking of making them myself but >_< blarg I dunno if i can make 4 big fans plus 2 intricate(sp?) costumes before CNA. -.-

Ochika
07-15-2004, 12:47 AM

megumi_mitsukai
07-24-2004, 03:28 AM
I think most of us are using craft foam for the armor o.o; Not sure. I know I am XD. And I don't think we have a Sima Yi or a Zhuge Liang yet =)

Nagii
07-24-2004, 06:46 PM
Oh ok, I think i'm gonna gather ideas, put them in a hat and pull one out and that will be my armor choice.

Ochika
07-24-2004, 08:04 PM

08-02-2004, 09:44 PM
I've been thinking..I dunno if I can get Da Qia done on time for CNA simply because a lot of the material I need to make it look good is unavailable for the season. <_< I'll try my hardest to get it done, but I'm not going to make it hafl-assed just to do so. >_>

Ochika - Diao Chan
Schu - Zhou Yu
SimiHe - Sima Yi
Nagii - Dark Yue Ying
Megumi - Default Yue Ying

I'm not sure about anyone else like Squall1882, Memi, Mekou or Ryuuka o_O;. I'm assuming Ryuuka should be fine since she got most of hers done before Anime North. XD

Mekou
08-21-2004, 11:27 PM
Nyah..^^ I'm not Da Qiao anymore. ;~; But I'll probably stalk the photoshoot and take piccies. ^.^

Nyo~~ I'm sad because I missed some of your costumes T_T. Ochika, Ryuuka and I found each other (although Ochika, myself and some of Ochika's friends ran around to find Ryuuka XD) but we couldn't find anyone else T_T. I know Schu and Nagii were around somewhere because of one of Schu's recent posts XD. But we didn't find you unfortunately T__T;. So we actually just sat there near one of the escalators hoping you guys would pass by XD. I couldn't find you guys around 1 PM either o_O;. I think I'm blind XD. But yes, I would love to see your costumes <3. Post a picture if when you get one, ne? =) Please?

Ryuuka, Ochika and I are at the front of the group in this picture:

We were looking everywhere, until food nearly done us in. I didn't fine Nagii until 5pm Fri! And I will post picy's as soon as the last 7 pictures are gone, then we will take it in to get delevoped. I really wanted you guys to be at my mini b-day party in teh convention centre -.-;;;

Hey did anyone see a really hot Japanese male dressed as Jiang Wei!? I smashed into a pole while walking and staring x.x;;;

megumi_mitsukai
08-29-2004, 11:21 PM
XD! Lol. I didn't see the Jiang Wei T_T. I actually don't remember at all how he looks like. XD So I probably wouldn't be able to reconize him. I don't use Jiang Wei that much in the game XD or notice him much o_O;. The Qiao's a reconized a bit easier since I've used them a bunch of times. And their costume design is a bit more reconizable. ^^;

Wow! A B-day! My friend also had a b-day during the weekend O___O. Her's was on Saturday and my friends circled her and sang happy birthday in the lobby. I was too lazy to stand up because my feet hurt XD. But yes, happy belated birthday! =D

I suppose you guys didn't see Sima Yi wandering around? T__T

Hehe, Nope I didn't see Sima Yi (SimiHe) he might of been there and we missed her, but I never met up with him. Too bad you can't send cake through the mail. I still have a bunch left over, cause they had to go for the supersized b-day cake and I would send you guys some ^^; -gives a virtual cake slice instead- will this make up for it?
