Figured I'd go ahead and post this.

Yea, it's early, But I am sure most of you already have a basic idea at what your Cosplay is going to be for next year, correct? I do.. Probably 1: InuYasha v 2.0, or 2: Bridget From Guilty Gears.

I have a Gaia account, and the only thing remotely close to Gaia I met up with at AWA was the fan table in the dealers room.

My cosplay, I am hoping will be Bridget From Guilty Gears XX

I'll probably go as either Edward Elric or Kh2 Kairi.

I'm pretty sure I'm doing ANBU Temari or Nanao-chan. These are my plans for now. I want to be able to do a cosplay with the correct hair so I'll probably do Nanao or if I'm brave enough, Rukia. I just discovered, with messy enough hair, I can pull her off. ^^

Sai from Naruto and an art concept of Vanity/Pride from the Seven Sins are pretty much sure bets, but I'm not sure about the other two (?) cosplays I'll be bringing. Maybe some recycles from this year, or who knows. ^^;

I am going to try to have Sesshomaru finished along with the Jaken puppet and Rin outfit for my friend. I will be Byakuya Kuchiki one of the 3 days as it will be done very soon. Not sure what else...

I will bring my Maes for next year and i will probably bring back my Amano fanfic character from yugioh gx(now that I have the black jacket ^_^) and I may do a Dark Zane Trusdale from yugioh gx.

10-11-2006, 09:34 AM
I'm going as Axel from KH2. AWA 2007 is AWA XIII after all, so Organization XIII cosplay is an absolute MUST for me. If I get the time to work it, I'd really like to do a Timeless River Axel one of the days. ^.^

anduin
10-18-2006, 10:02 PM
I'm going as Ty Lee with a couple of freinds (going as Mai and Azula) from Avatar. I'm acctually not sure if my friends are going, but I am positive. I'm going to do one other costume, and possibly go as Olette again, but I'm not sure yet.

My plans have altered slightly. I'm doing ANBU Temari coz' I haven't seen anyone do it, like, ever. Why do I always go for the unknown? =| Anyhow, and Yuniiieee from FFX. And then I'll do Ballroom Temari on Friday for the photoshoot and then wear that same thing to the ball. It's just a kimono and the wig. Hmm...-needs to make a topic for help-

FireFoxxDizzi
01-03-2007, 01:46 AM

-Kitsurubami (FLCL)
-Gidget (Eureka 7)
Ill be my 2nd convention ever^^

I JUST started on mine for this year (gotta get it done early so I'm not rushing like mad this year). So I'm doing Shelke from Dirge of Cerberus, hopefully with her EM sabers (not so sure about those though...).

Hey Phoenixgate! Looking forward to the photoshoot this week! I cant wait to see your sessy and rin costumes. Perhaps Naraku will have to make a special appearance *plots* It'll be fun to get the whole gang together again! even that Inuyasha 2.0... i guess.... *grins*

london2191
01-21-2007, 03:54 PM
Yep, so plans for now:

Friday: For the sake of the Bleach photoshoot, I'm doing Soi Fong and then changing into Ballroom Temari for the ball.

Saturday: I hope there's a FF photoshoot this day because I'm wearing Summoner Yuna. I'll change into Soi Fong for the contest because that'll be my only handmade costume. Then, I'm changing back into Yuna.

Sunday: ANBU Temari and once again, hopefully there'll be a Naruto photoshoot of the sort on this day.

Hikaruhime
01-21-2007, 04:05 PM
My plans are pretty much set now~

Friday:
EGL Malik Ishtar from Yuugiou during the day. Day and time subject to change depending on the YGO photoshoot.

Sai from Naruto during the evening/night since I *think* that's when we're planning to have a Naruto photoshoot, like last year.

Saturday:
Pride/Vanity from The Seven Deadly Sins during the day.

Raven from Teen Titans during the evening/night. It's possible this may be on Sunday instead, just depending when we do the Teen Titans photoshoot.

Sunday:
Bulma from Dragonball Z until we leave that afternoon. This might get switched with Raven, depending on the Teen Titans photshoot day/time.

01-21-2007, 04:45 PM
Urg, there's one on Friday? ;_; Well, I'll probably end up coming regardless of the fact that I'm cosplaying as a character from Bleach. xD

BUT YAY SAI. =3 I absolutely LOVE him. Do you have progress pictures?

PhoenixGate
01-21-2007, 05:58 PM
lol, hey, the evil Narako comes out of his slumber! Oooh, and he'll be at the photo shoot! be sure to post on the Georgia Cosplayers thread in Seeking Cosplayers section. I actually have not gotten Sess done. :( SO I will be doing a Bleach character for the shoot though I hope to have it finished by Megacon. Too much to do and so little time. It shall be done by AWA 2007 though. ha, I shall challenge you.

Sai rocks hardcore. XD Yeah, there's a progress picture in my gallery, but it doesn't include his crop top and jacket since I made those afterwards.

There was talk on the AWA forum of Friday around 6 or later, but that could be changed within the next eight months. XD;

london2191
01-21-2007, 07:44 PM
I wish there could be one photoshoot everyday. ;___;

Friday is supposed to be the Bleach photoshoot like last time which is why I planned for it that day. And the Naruto photoshoot was on Saturday last time, right? I s'pose I could always bring all three of my cosplays that day and change for the contest, shoot and then my all-day costume. o.o Urg, that equals three wigs and two overly sized props. O.O Nevermind.

AH. -stamps feet- I'm definitely arranging a photoshoot on Sunday. Or I'll just sit there all by myself.

Hikaruhime: AHh, crop top. =3

PhoenixGate: Which character?

Hikaruhime
01-21-2007, 10:10 PM
I dunno if there was a Naruto photoshoot on Saturday or not. I went to the one Friday at 8pm.

PhoenixGate
01-22-2007, 09:18 AM
Byakuya Kuchiki will be making his status known at AWA! Friday is a good day for me for a Bleach shoot since Sat may be Trinity Blood and all its glory or perhaps a Inuyasha 2.0. I may even have a naruto cosplay by then. ;)

UrMastrInuYasha
01-22-2007, 02:07 PM
I completely forgot about this thread O.o

But yes, I have 2 plans for cosplay, Bridget from GG:xx, and Shuichi (school girl outfit) From gravitation. I may let my friend borrow my InuYasha costume, So if there are any planned IY shoots, let me know so I can get him there.

london2191
01-22-2007, 05:08 PM
Yay for more Bleach on Friday! =] Me (Soi Fong) and Hinamori-chan shall be there as well. =) Once I get started on that costume...

01-22-2007, 06:49 PM
We talked it over and decided that instead of going all out and trying to top last years costume we will do something easy since a lot of stuff is suppose to happen this year. So we are going as Ukyo and Ryoga from Ranma 1/2

There were loads of Pyramid Head dudes at AWA. I remember sitting in the lobby and like, a billion of them trundled by and people started taking thousands of pictures.

I don't even know what it is or where it's from, but I know the name. Silly London.

I will go there too this year.

For about 99,9999% I will wear my Lulu costume for at least one day.

The other days... not sure yet. Maybe I get to make the "Memories of Alessa" costume, then I will wear this one too :D

london2191

Yay, Lulu! I dub her my Ultimate Cosplay. When I ever have a lot of time and courage, I /will/ make her. And then eventually die. xD

01-25-2007, 02:12 AM
Oh yes, that costume can KILL you >_< but I'm glad that AWA is not in July or August where it is really hot. The first time I wore it it was 95 F.
Walking with the dark leather outfit in the SUN was even more... "nice"... @,@

Anyhow, I am loking forward to wear my lulu again, even though I want to fix/remake some things first ^^

london2191
01-25-2007, 06:33 PM
Yeahh. There aren't any cons that are really in the direct time of summer. Two are in Fall and then one in Spring. That's all for the cons I know in Georgia.

I would probably wear it regardless of weather if I was dedicated. BUTTT, when I wore it, I probably would complain. xDD

Omg. Timeless River Axel sounds awesome! I love original ideas. Last year, I went as Pirate Sora.

My costume ideas:
1. "Princess" Sora from Kingdom Hearts XD
2. Hokuto Umeda from Hanazakari no Kimitachi e
3. Either Conan Edogawa from Case Closed, Mr. K from Gravitation, Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing, Izzy from Digimon, or a Sexy no Jutsu character. :D


I'm going as Axel from KH2. AWA 2007 is AWA XIII after all, so Organization XIII cosplay is an absolute MUST for me. If I get the time to work it, I'd really like to do a Timeless River Axel one of the days. ^.^

Sorry, love... You may not live past... Basically whenever I spot you ^_______^

HanaKimi is one of my absolute favorite manga. EVER O_O And it's rarely cosplayed! T____T
That would usually be enough to get death mauled by me :3

But nooooooooooooooo... You had to pick UMEDA. On my top 10 list of favorite chracters out of... anything. You WILL get hugged to death!!! XDDDD

*Fangirls everywhere*

Any idea when you're wearing it? I need to find you!!!!!!!!! (And which outfit?)

02-11-2007, 10:14 PM
I'm going :)

this year we decided to go easy on the costumes so it's going to be Ukyo and Ryoga. We tried to make those for last year but we didn't have enough time to do both of those AND the Jasmine and Aladdin. So this year we want to be able to go to Panels and walk around the con. It was Fun having a popular costume but this year I think we want to be a little Low Key. I might buy a comphy costume on ebay for friday for when we travel up to Atlanta so we can cosplay but I can drive and cosplay. I am hoping for a Bleach cosplay.

london2191

AND LOL. I love running around going 'HANAZAKARI NO KIMITACHI HE.' You know that's Hana-Kimi!?!? *weird stares all around*

Naraku1
02-12-2007, 06:23 PM
me and my friend will also be cosplaying as Ukyo and Ryoga as well as Utena and Akio, and of course, Naraku and Kagome! I'm hoping my other friend joey *cough* you better be reading this man *cough* will bring out his Inuyasha costume at least one more time. Here's for hoping!

Venus Knight
02-13-2007, 12:50 AM

I was Ryoga last year, maybe I should bring it again. I would be fun to have a bunch of ryoga clones running around.

PhoenixGate
02-13-2007, 04:15 PM
Naraku1 - It will be good seeing you again! and bringing out the InuYasha cosplays would be prefect. Maybe I will have Sess done by then...here's to hoping. Just got to get my butt in gear.

Speaking of, for those interested: http://www.awa-con.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=6734&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

Hopefully the link works. It's for the Super Smash Bros: Brawl meetup. I know there has to be some people thinking of doing costumes that could fit into this meetup, and it would be great to fill in the space ^.^ Doubles welcomed too :P (I am pretty sure this spawned from the HUGE Super Mario Bros. photoshoot that happened last AWA, that turned into a Super Smash Bros Melee shoot ^^)

But then theres the other extreme, i have this feeling we will be seeing alot of TJ sasukes this year at AWA. so opinons? anyone :)

I'm going to be going as an older, desert nomad/rockstar kinda Gaara. I saw a fanpic of it once:) and Possibly Renji. However None of my friends are into anime. I've been to AWA three years in a row and I'm too quite to make any friends. If anyone would be willing to have a Renji/Garra tag along please let me know.

Right now I am working on Sakura from Tsubasa the Koriyo Manga Editon

I'm also working on Re-doing my Auron costume for the Final Fantasy Photo Shoot.

Finally I am making a Jessica from Dragon Quest VIII that I am excited about playing.

Have you ever made a decision on what you are going to go as then all the sudden you start watching an anime, and you fall in love with a character and you start drooling ......... Oh Shuurei from Saiunkoku Monogatari.

Yeah I have a cosplay lab profile to keep track of the costumes I've done and the one's I want to do

♥ I'll be returning as Ichigo from Katamari Damacy, only hopefully this time around I'll get to fixing the head so I can actually SEE out of it and walk around with it on. Haha.

I'm also toying with the idea of constructing a Katamari - the actual 'ball'.

(This is a longshot) Any other Katamari cosplayers coming? Maybe? Please~?
If so, PM me!

I'm really hoping to go, but I can't place any gaurantees. If so, I'll probably be bringing the following

1) New Amano Rydia - Final Fantasy IV
2) Pitt (Super Smash Brother Brawl) - SSBB
3) Haruhi Fujioka (Manga Wonderland Version) - Ouran High School Host Club

Probably a few others, but well, you get the idea, lol.

Dude, I MAY be going to the AWA ball, so I would love to hang out with you as I have no friends. -_- If I can't do Princess Kairi, I could do Nakao in a random dress. :D

I know its a definite i'm going to be going as Inuyasha. and My girlfriend as Kagome, I had planned Friday to be Inuyasha with just his Tetsaiga in its sheath. Saturday would be the Transformed Tetsaiga. and Sunday would either be Inuyasha in human form. or may do a original character concept i had which i may do if i have the time to start a new outfit after i finish up Inuyashas outfit.

My girlfriend is going kagome all 3 days due to the fact she has her outfit done. and refuses to go anything else. even wont go and make a different style kagome outfit. Ill try to convince her but it may be the same outfit all 3 days which is kagome's school girl uniform.

Hey, minna-san! This'll be my third awa. Last year I went as Belldandy. That was the first time I'd made part of the costume myself. This time, I might be getting in over my head, but I plan to make shinigami outfits for myself and my boyfriend. I'll be Nanao. He'll be Aizen. Such fun! :)

BJD?

I think I just added another original cosplay. Child Namine? =D She has a giant pencil with a notepad. Pleated or flowy blue skirt, white cami, shoesies, and a bunch of paopu jewelery and accessories.

oh, you know......Ball Joint Doll? they are cast out of resin and made in a variety of sizes and by lots of different companies. They're really cute and fully custumizable! But REALLY expensive. They mostly come from japan, korea, and some other asian places. It's not really an anime, but people have meet-ups all the time and take pictures of other people's BJDs in their cosplay (or regular clothes if they don't have costumes for them)

Now I don't know if I get to come this year... I can only come if Northwest Airlines will allow me to transfer my current plane ticket to go straight to Atlanta instead of Birmingham since I had a falling out with my friend, and I refuse to go with her now. I was looking forward to my third AWA. T___T

I am going! It will be my first con too. I am cosplaying as Hinamori Momo from Bleach and crossplaying Kakashi Hatake from Naruto Saturday and Sunday.
I am also bringing some family and friends to finish off Team 7 and to have other cosplayers.
Did you guys see the Hard Gay last year? It was my sister's bf's friend. Her boyfriend was the generic soldier. lol if you havent seen the video, search "Hard Gay AWA" on YouTube.

Well, I hope to see everyone there and get a look at all the wonderful cosplays!

Bwahaha! Himemiya returns! I haven't been to AWA since 2003!

I'll be cosplaying Haruhi, Emi from DDR supernova, Ryomou from Ikkitousen, and Aika from KAMUI (not the normal outfit, thought). I have an open spot for friday night, I'm not sure if I'm going to the ball or not...

I suggest the Kanekalon beast in Lily from Amphigory. It's white but has shades of other kinda things. -nods- Ari-chan used it as well as some other girl I forgot.

There was also another Riku and she got a white wig and sharpie dyed light blue, pink and purple into her wig as little highlights and tints. I think it's just a mix so either the wig above or you could use light blue and silver sharpie highlights onto your wig if that doesn't satisfy you.

Oooh! Thanks for the reply I wasn't expecting anyone to reply to that ^^ Well I already found a place that sells good wigs I just can't figure out the color seeing that Riku's hair is Ether a light blue http://home.midsouth.rr.com/hollynayru/images/kh2-riku.jpgor Silverwhite-ish.http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/AlcorBado/KH2/Riku4.jpg
Like I see cosplayers with this hair most of the time::

I would definitely say the second one, but who's that seller? =O I would only order from Amphigory *which I do*, Cosworx or a few select ebay-ers such as the seller Zhenna0036. She has unbelievable prices and the quality is amazing. I keep with my suggestions tho'.

ChickenDoughnut
06-05-2007, 10:34 PM
Ah! Thank-you I was afraid to try a light blue seening many people will think it's not riku [Shrugs] Um the seller is from a japanese site: cyperous.com

Hey I got a Kinya Brown wig from Zhenna it was awesome! I also ordered about 6 wigs from Ebay [all wonderful sellers] But the one riku wig I got was wavy and when I went to straighten it it fryed it up, So I found this site and saw how straight, Real and Straighen-able [Not a word] there wigs are So what the heck^^ I'll shoot if I miss I'll get over it :P

london2191
06-06-2007, 01:06 AM
How'd you straighten it? -hopes to god you didn't use an actual hair straightener-

Nyarrr, I wouldn't order from them. My opinion, at least. A lot of it isn't in english and I haven't heard of them before nor have I heard of anyone ordering from them. If you've ordered from them and it's fine, then by all means, go ahead, but it's still questionable to me. D=

*raises hand* Actually... I used the Linda in 60 silver/white X3

Aaaanywho, if you're going for in-game, go for #3. He definately has those blue tones. However, for FMV or artwork, #2.
With 3 there's a slight chance of getting tackled as a Zexion, but there shouldn't be too much trouble as long as you have the blindfold.

Crazy game designers X3

In regards to Zhenna0036, is the wig quality really that good? I've considered buying from them multiple times, but in their pictures the wigs look so thin. o.o;

london2191
06-06-2007, 03:01 AM
Delicatexflower: The quality is so niceeee. I got the Ada from Amphigory and another wig from Zhenna and Zhenna's quality is so much nicer. It's so soooofffftt. -rubs face against wig- It is true their wigs are thin, but if you have the chance of adding wefts or your hair isn't noticeable underneath the wig, get it. o.o

Ari-chan: Oh you did? I thought you posted that you used something else in that one thread...hurrr. =D

delicatexflower
06-06-2007, 09:27 AM
London: Haha, the way you make it sound has convinced me to buy a wig I've been eyeing for awhile now from Zhenna . =3 I just hope it isn't too thin to the point I won't be able to style it.

If you're styling it in an updo, it won't work. o.o And you'll need a really good wig cap if you have pitch-black hair with that pink wig. But yay you!

You could always dye your hair pink so it blends in with the wig. XD <--- I'm that crazy.

Um, but if you're not crazy, I wouldn't suggest dying pink. >< Because you have to bleach it to get it light, nee? And then dye it. And it's just for a wig. =O

XDDDDDD Yeah, had to bleach it twice before dyeing ^_^
