I am making progress on my Regina costume for Dragon*Con. I am almost done with the jacket. All that is left is to finish the trim on the sleeves. Then I have to make the rest of the outfit!
Anyway, here is a progress picture:\

I would like you all to know that Belle has the ugliest shoes on the planet. I had to make my own. >:| Anyway, Belle and Rumple are both pretty much done! I'll cosplay my own OTP, damn it. XD Pictures forthcoming, I actually have a shoot scheduled this weekend for Belle, but I don't think I'm going to wear Rumple until the con since the make-up is going to be a pain in the ass.

Double posting AGAIN, sorry, but did we decide on an official date/time for getting together as a group? Last I heard, it was some time on Sunday.

So...just as a matter of opinion, Id like to ask you all...

I would love to cosplay Rumplestiltskin...but with shoes on, I'mabout six feet tall. Would that be too ridiculous?

Do what you want! I personally support all OUAT cosplayers, no matter what! I'm cosplaying Rumple, and I'm going to be MAYBE 5'4" with the boots on. The opposite end of ridiculous, but I always say cosplay what/who you love!

That said, I actually did a test shoot in Belle today. Here's a pic from it: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3250773/

The main problem is the bodice, which WILL be getting boning installed, but the store was out when I went last night. I think I need to shorten the skirt so that it's the proper length while sitting right at my hips, because otherwise it bunches up under the bodice. Boning will help, but I still think it would show underneath and be all lumpy. I think I may have a particularly long torso, because right now it sits at my natural waist which is waaaaaaay up there.

There's a meetup at 4 and a dinner at 5:30, I think! It's somewhere on the Facebook group. Now that her pendant finally arrived, my Emma Swan is done, but I'm having buyer's remorse about the wig

Will anyone be doing their costumes on Friday? We've scheduled LotR costumes on Sunday, and I'm a costume panelist for the Tolkien Track that day, so Sunday has kind of been a no-go for us from the start -_-.

On top of the fact my bf has to have a full beard for Graham, and then baby-face for Legolas...

So...Friday, anyone? I know a few people who are planning on wearing them Friday but was wondering if another meetup could be planned?

I know that I can't really do anything Friday night, because I'm going to be in a costume that will require airbrushing that night and it's going to take me forever to get ready so I'll have to be in it for a long time. ;___;

My personal plan is Saturday morning/day I'm going to do Belle, and my husband has actually changed from August to Jefferson at my request because, frankly, I think he looks more the part for Jefferson. Plus I've already acquired 95% of the costume, including a scarf I got for $8 which is AMAZING and looks just like the one he wears in Hat Trick. Then Sunday I was going to wear Rumple for most of the night with my friend in Blue Fairy (and perhaps hubby back in Jefferson again if I can coax him), so probably starting after ya'll come back from the dinner thing because I won't be able to eat in Rumple.

Um...so, like, I really fucking love this show and don't want to miss out particularly on the Sunday meet-up...so if someone running the group dinner thing wants to PM me to exchange numbers, I would be okay with that. Shooting me a quick "we're all back from dinner" text at the con would be super appreciated and awesome. But I'd also understand if that's weird for anyone.

And to make this post have more of a point, here's a pic of the Jefferson scarf I got!

I'm gonna try my damnedest to see if I can't switch REALLY fast from Arwen to Regina on Sunday. Same for my bf with Graham...though he'll be beardless. We'll see.

What time and place on Friday? I can atleast lend my Graham to you guys on Friday..since I'll be in fairy-tale Regina .

As of today, when her necklace and my new fabulous blonde wig were ordered, my Emma Swan costume is 100% completely done. Just had to share with somebody

Is a photoshoot separate from the FB group one for Sunday still being done? I'd love to take some OUAT photos but the one currently listed in the photoshoots topic says photos after food court dinner without specifying where the photos are happening.

IMO the photoshoot information is only included in the Meetup because they're both OUAT-related, but they're not part of the same event. The photoshoot is exclusive to a private group with a professional photographer they hired and not open to the public or anyone outside their private group (I asked). They are only taking one person for each costume/character and virtually everyone except I think Jefferson is taken. As far as I know, there is no informal photoshoot scheduled, just the assumption that we'll all want to take pictures once we get together.

I also am not sure why we're eating first, then taking pictures

Yeah, that's my thing, because I can't eat while I'm in costume! Make-up on my hands and gross teeth paint stuff, etc. That's why I'm trying to find out where the photos will be after dinner, like around what time everyone thinks they might be done, so I can join up then.
