With about a month until the con, who besides me is still trying to finish costumes? Or maybe you haven't even started yet!

Share your in-progress costumes and updates here. :)

I have four costumes in-progress, but I don't know how many I'll have done in time for the con. Probably my most difficult project is Link's Master Sword and Hylian Shield. I tried to make the sword once and it failed miserably so I'm starting over. It looked more like a giant popsicle than a weapon, and the foam I was using was too dense to sand down properly. Back to Ye Olde Drawinge Boarde.

I still have to finish/fix up all of my costumes, but its worse that I have to have all of them done before AX >.<

Finish? I haven't even started. Once AX is over, I'll get working on my Comic Con costume. XD

I need belts for my Wolfwood cross. I'll get those this week. And if I can get a fake cig, that'd be perfect. XD

I still have to finish my Sheik costume, and my friend's Vincent costume is underway too.

Ooh, a Wolfwood! I'll have to catch you so I can take a picture. :3 For fake cigs, try going to a party store/year round Halloween store (we have some around where I live). I got a pack of two for about a buck or so. <3 Or you can get candy ones at a candy store. XD

Oh I am so definitely very far from being done. As it is right now, I only have the helmet I need and that still needs some work done on it. I still have to get my coat sewn, buy the boots and pants I would need, and possibly a couple other minor things.

Sadly it will still probably be incomplete, as I am not positive how well carrying around a functional Airsoft will go over with the con staff. I'm not willing to take the risk of carrying it around with me.

I haven't started my Comic Con costumes, since I have been working my arse off for AX. I am almost done with the six that I have to get done for AX. (Only two are for me. Three for friends, and one commission.) Then I will be working on Axel [KHII] and Ukyo [Samura 7] for Comic Con. No commissions or costumes for friends. I can just work on my two cosplay in peace. XD

I havent started nor decided yet on what costume I'm seriously gonna bring to comic con XD but I will most likely not do it until AFTER AX lol. And will most likely be a rushed costume >__>

Thanks for the advice. :toothy: I think my mom got some recently from somewhere, I'll have to ask here where she got them. (the candy ones XD)

Most of my costumes are almost done. Just minor things like sewing on pockets etc left.
I MADE myself start early this year so I wouldn't rush like always xD

I've gotten a few little things done... my Mustafar Padme and the Vader bodysuit & capes are getting there. I've got my boots, gloves and accessories left to make for Rogue. The only one I haven't gotten a good start on is my new Padme lake dress.. I'm hoping to buy fabric this weekend. If I have time I'm going to try to finish my new Ceremonial Leia in time, too, but I'm not going to to push it...

Man, I need to make a Hollow Ichigo costume and a FF7 AC Cloud, and I'm barely getting started! Why did I agree to do this?! WHY?! *Seppuku*

I have about 5 or six little detail things to do before I step into the SDCC arena. I did a punch list last weekend. I still need to add the proper straps on my snow boots (like the snowtroopers in the Empire Strikes Back) Revenge of the Sith skirt straps with metal clip underneath the belt plate etc. Plus I will be painting a freash coat of semi gloss white on the back of my helmet and on my back armor plate to remove some funny looking battle damage.

I need to finish my weapons *pokes foamies* XD;; at least the LOVEGEN (Sh15uya) one, and if I have time, Velvet Nightmare for Yazoo. Other than that, I'm ready (I think lol)

Yeah about finishing costumes... At the moment, none of my costumes are near done, so at this rate I'm dropping all my costumes. It'll still be nice to see everyone though.

Edit: Umm, I could be able to pull of my Chuunin Sasuke outfit, but its a bit unfinished... so yeah maybe~

My coat is still in progress. Hopefully it will be done tomorrow.

Everything else save for one patch {for the coat} I have.

As for this year...
I have a Crysta (ferngully) costume I've been lazy on finishing. I have most of the outfit done just have to and the waist on the skirt and the clothing is done. The major things I really need is I have to have my hairstylist friend give my wig a quick minor makeover trim and I stll need to make my wings. They'll be so cool when they're done. They'll actually flap if I want them to.

I think this year it's not so much -finishing- costumes as it is repairing and adding to present ones. I'm kind of on a 'new costume hiatus' this year due to wedding planning.

The good news is that the work is not too difficult. :)
