Hey everyone,
I am a huge fan of video games, fantasy movies, fantasy books, comics...etc and I enjoy the heck out of the cons but I have never realy dressed up. I kinda stumbled across this site and im excited to join the community. Last year I went as a generic vampire but my costume was realy kinda lame. I am attending Comic-Con again this year and was wondering if thier are any locals that wana help me out with some experiance.

All I can say is..welcome to Madness(tm). :)

Interestingly enough, this will be my first ComicCon, so I suppose that we're relatively even!

I'm not "local", unfortunately (I'm in San Francisco, to be precise), but depending on what you're looking for in terms of 'mentoring', I can try to impart some sense of 'wisdom', depending on what you are doing.

Do you have an idea of what you would like to do for costuming, or are you still juggling ideas?

Well thier are alot of questions but I guess the first thing is deciding on a character. I was sort of toying with the idea of an Aeilman from the Wheel of Time series. But didnt realy know if that would be appropriate.

I'd say ComicCon takes just about anything...but that's just from what I've seen there. ;)

comic con does take just about everything. It called comic con but its really a pop culture convention. Movies, comics, anime, tv...its any costume R US.

I you need help and have picked out your costume I would sugest asking qustions in the costume help section.

Most of us here are willing to help but there is limit to what we can do. Now for at con hang out..we can help you there. I love meeting new cosplayers!

Well, it'll help if I know where you are! I'm in about the same spot as you...wondering if I'll have to walk around with a big arrow pointing at me or something...

It would clash with my clothes though...most of the time :(

I was thinking about bringing a balloon. Y'know, so you could easily be found... Again, kind of clashes, but hey. Balloons are fun anyway, right? ;)

That they are! ;)

Hmmm..it's too bad the programming's not out yet. I was writing down my schedule today, but realized that Saturday is already mostly booked, and everything else will depend on the programming...
