Hey everyone!

I was wondering how many of you are going to enter the contest? If you are, how's it going? Are you finished or still scrambling to get it done like me? :bashful: I know I'm not going to place or anything, but I thought I would still give it a shot just for fun. Soooo....spill already!! :bouncer:

I always say "maybe this year" but unless I stumble upon the EXACT fabric I need for super super cheap, it's totally not gonna happen this year either, lol. One of these days....

I know I also don't have a chance to place, so my costume is only half done as I have higher priority Otakon costumes working on. I probably will be doing an original design, so I probably will be doing last minute sewing to get something together.

I'm doing it again this year, though I think next year may be my last.

If time could magically stop, then I would definatly be entering in it. Since that will not be happening I'll just save the costume I'm working on for next year.

i haven't ever done the contest before, so i decided this year may be a good time to try...heh heh...we'll see. i'm about half done with my three tiers limited 3 costume. and, apparently my wig is never going to arrive.
i'm all kinds of clueless as to what the contest'll be like and i have no idea what on earth i'm supposed to do, but, hey, i'll be totally fun nonetheless!!
i look forward to seeing everyone there! i'll be the confused one...hee hee...

This is just an advance notice for any c.com members who plan to enter the Dawn contest this year regarding pictures from me: Unlike last year where I watched the ladies go up on stage, I won't be watching it this year but rather going in-and-out of the room and up-and-down the levels of the Hyatt, looking for cosplayers. I will however, be back in-time when you ladies parade on that cat-walk in the back of the room, along with the dozens of photographers taking pics like crazy. I also would like to get pictures of you afterwards (before would be possible if I catch you before you go backstage) and I know the D-con staff gets on photographers who take pics OUTSIDE the contest room, so if possible please go UPSTAIRS to the Hyatt lobby after the contest so I may find you and take pictures. :) Last year I managed to get a few who stayed in costume and mingled with the people partying upstairs, and I hope to do that again this year. :D

Thanks, and good-luck to everyone who plans to enter!

Just come up to the lobby, and stay in one spot. Anywhere where there's room to breathe.. I'll find you eventually. ;)

If there's a large gathering of Dawns in any one place in the lobby, my guess is there will be a fairly large space around them of people taking pictures. :) The backside of the elevator bank (that faces the concierge and front doors) is a good place to stand normally, and one where there's not as much traffic flow (because it doesn't block access to the elevators in any way.

Wow! It's so exciting to know all of you are entering! :jjacks: -And those that aren't I look forward to seeing what you come up with for next year!

a-tastic: wow...how long have you been working on the three tiers costume?Was it difficult for you? I don't think I'm skilled enough yet to make a costume from the comic. So, I'm sticking with an original design for now.

kitsunered: OMG! You make such a pretty Dawn! :heart: Just noticed the avatar so I checked out your gallery. Wow.

I am there.I am doing an oufit inspired(inspired becuase I cannot afford to do the exact outfit) by the 9 to 5 pic.

I do not hold out a lot of hope of winning,but I am looking forward to crossplaying without worrying about ending up in the hospital emergency room.

I will be the dawn with an adam's apple using a Cane.I should be very sweet to be around as I will be taking pain pills for my back and legs.So please no one ask me to sign every thing I own over to them.I just might. lol.

I keep toying with the idea. I had a crappy Dawn costume last year, but was going to enter for fun, anyway. This year, I had wanted to make a better one, but I'm already so swamped with things I want to do. I don't know. I keep thinking about how fun it would be to be part of the contest. If I do it, though, it won't be in a half-assed costume.

I am definitly entering this year and I manage to get Mocha to enter as well so I can have someone to pic on backstage. I plan on doing an original design since I am still a begginer in sewing. My costume will be a Nubian version of Dawn and I am almost finished with it. I hope to see all of you at the contest and remember you are a goddess no matter what so strut your stuff on that catwalk cuz you own it!!!!!

It looks like I'll be entering this year in an original victorian based design. I should have everything ready in time.

Quite a bit. I made my costume (an original design) and I can't help but feel something is missing from it.

I know what you mean cuz me and my friend keep adding new elements to our costume and as a result we add more work on ourselves. So far I am done and now I am focusing on the other cosutmes I have to finish up. :jjacks: I can't belive I am actully entering this year and the very thought just makes me giddy all over. Oh well at least I am gonna have fun and I can't wait to see your Dawn. I bet it's gonna be cool. :cool:
