I'm going as Medusa, just wondering if anyone else would be there as Petshop of Horrors characters. I'm hoping highly for a Count D and maybe a few other pets like Bird of Paradise and the Mermaid or bunny.

Sounds sweet. If a few more people join I might do an Alice costume.

BTW Let me know if you do Rei agian. I'm bringing Kaworu and I'd like to get some pics with you.

I don't think I'll be bringing Rei again, I'm travelling from Boston and I can't bring too much and I kind of want to expose other costumes that haven't had con time before ones I have a hundred pictures of already. Sorry.

Okrei. I got the material yesterday so either me or my friend will be wearing Alice the Rabbit in the pink (pjs?) dress.

lol well at least he'll be bigger than the both of us. Aww and a male D that'll be perfect. If I decide to have my friend wear the costume and I have some extra money I might do a leon costume for myself.

Costumes are on hiatus. Alice looks like a baggish wreck so I dunno if I'll be finishing her.

Was giving me problems and it came out looking very..frumpy. I took a week hiatus and then I just finished it up about an hour ago to get it over with. Just have to make the hair bow and possible a few more stitches on the bow on the back. Definatly not a great example of my work but it's come out soso, so I'll be wearing it at Megacon.

I've been wanting to do an exotic costume for some time, so I'll take a stab at Bird of Paradise! :bigtu:

If we can get someone to be the Doberman, we'll have the whole first volume!:toothy:

I bought fabric this weekend! I usually procrastinate and do my costume right before I con, but I really want to do a nice job with this one, so hopefully I stay on the ball here....

Thanks! My pattern wasn't exactly to my size, so I made a prototype out of a sheet to get the measurements right. That got done this weekend, so I'm going to make a normal skirt I can wear to work for practice, and then make the skirt for my cosplay! I should get skirt v2.0 done next weekend or so - I have to get a few supplies I didn't know I needed until I made that prototype! (I had never made a full garment from scratch before, nor worked with patterns, so I'm still learning a few things here! I've always taken preexisting garments and altered them, so this opens up a whole new world of possibilities for me... being in the fabric store was worse than the candy store! :toothy: )

I've gotten my fabric and beads in order, my base wig is straightened and conditioned, I just need to start construction. Anyone else?

P.S. I got a new avatar, that's something.

*Mental Note*
I may need to ask advice of you on how to style a wig for a con in May, or talk about commissioning it from you....

If I can get my house cleared post-holiday, I should be able to complete most of the sewing (except the gold collar piece.... ) by the New Year if I am focused... the holiday hub-bub and a barrage of non-specific malaises have hit me (grr!) Then I can focus on the details... the details... the details... :woah: I can handle it though, if I keep my mind on it. :bigtu:

(sorry - jitters - after making simpler cosplays for so long, I'm really wanting this to be my debut onto the cosplay radar, so I'm kind of nervous about doing a really good job!! :bouncer: )

Well good luck and I'd love to talk to you about commissioning a wig from me.

Update: The last of the fabric except for a few small things and some lining material have been purchased thanks to the HUGE sale (Yay!!). At this point I have almost all the supplies I need except for some little things to make everything. I didn't get to start sewing over the holiday becuase of all the family coming and going, but I did get to sew a little on another project I am trying to finish first and practiced a few techniques I hope will benefit this cosplay. I pwn the invisible hem stitch now (my machine won't do it so I have to do by hand - my current project is a skirt with white parts, and I was using black thread - NONE of it shows! Yay!)! It will really help avoid strange lines on the cosplay and keep things looking smooth and fluid. :)

I have all of this weekend blocked off to sew and recover from the holiday! Santa even brought a new neck massager to work out the kinks after hunching over the sewing machine! :toothy:

I forgot to mention! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope it brings everyone nothing but the best!!

Good question. How many people are still on the PoH boat? And what are they going as? I'm dying to know.

I live local to the con, so I'm flexible on meeting up.

I'm definatly going and will be bringing Alice. I'm going to be in the costume contest with another costume so Friday or Sunday might be easiest for me.

That so figures, because I'll be in costume contest with Medusa, maybe Sunday?

I posted more prgress pics in my gallery! I'm so happy that today was so productive - the wings and 1/4 of the headgear got done today! I'm not panicking any more! (whew!!!) How's everyone else doing??

I finished mine awhile ago. It really is crude (had to remove my hips for the costume since the pictures shows a straight line and I have very big hips compared to my waist = baggish) so I'm actually very hesistant about having pictures taken of it, more so when I see pictures of ya'lls costumes. Usually I do very well with costumes and am anal about putting out at least an average costume but this one got me so frustrated that towards the end I was just glad to be done with it.

Hmmm. Will you be in town thursday night? If you want, maybe I can help out? I don't know how all I could help, but if there's anything I can do to help you feel more comfortable, I'll try....

Sok, I'll be arriving the day of, hopefully before the con opens. Don't worry about it. It has lining (added since the fabric was see through) so at this point it is probable isn't repairable without excessive reconstruction. I just wanted to warn ya'll ahead of time.
