Tiger & Bunny!

Is anyone else planning on doing any Tiger & Bunny cosplay for A-kon this year? I myself am currently working on Barnaby's hero suit, and I would really like to debut it at A-kon! Hopefully I can get it done by then.

This will be my first Texas convention, so I'm pretty amped about it. I would love to meet any other T&B cosplayers who are planning to go! Perhaps if enough are attending, we can set up a time for a T&B gathering.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that if my boyfriend can attend A-kon, I plan to make Kotetsu's civilian clothes for him so he can join me. (And act as my handler. OTL)

seto_kaiba_36: Awesome! Can't wait to see!

Hannuh: Ahhhhh so cool!! My roommate mentioned the other day that she saw someone on her news feed was making Wild Tiger's armor - I'm guessing she is Facebook friends with you? (or maybe your boyfriend?) Anyway, that's really exciting!! Makes me want to make sure I get Barnaby done in time. Do you know what day(s) yet you are planning to have your group together?

Haha welcome, and thank you! Are you planning to do any T&B cosplay yourself, or are you just looking forward to seeing it? XD

How's everyone's progress? I myself am still not done, but I'm working on it every day! I'm trying very hard to get Barnaby done in time. >_< I've got almost all of my boyfriend's Kotetsu things gathered. I hope everyone else is having good progress.

I still haven't started! I was in Korea for a month and just came back Saturday so I need to get started on things. x_X I know my friends haven't even started on Lunatic or Dragon Kid, but we're having a cosplay sleepover to get things started. My boyfriend is trying to get his Tiger suit done in time too. He's almost done scoring and putting everything together so hopefully he starts soon. ; A ;

Oh, welcome back State-side! A cosplay sleepover sounds like a fun way to get everyone going, haha. That's awesome that you have friends that want to be Dragon Kid and Lunatic though! Good luck to you and your group getting everything done!!

By the way, I have cosplay plans for Friday already, so I'm definitely wearing Barnaby on Saturday. I hope you guys will be wearing your T&B stuff on Saturday too. >_<

Thanks~ I hope you get everything done because I'm really looking forward to seeing your barnaby! I liked your facebook page so I've been like creeping on your Barnaby progression and it looks awesome!

We'll probably be cosplaying it all weekend! ^^ I know we figured out a good place to take some photos at too. We passed by the Anatole the other day and decided to go in and we found a wonderful spot to take photo's once it starts to get a little dark outside! If we do decide on a photoshoot place, I'll make sure to tell you! ^O^

Haha, thank you very much for following my progress~! I wish I could follow you guys too, lol.

Oh, good! I'm relieved you plan to wear them all weekend. Yeah, definitely keep me in the loop about photoshoot info! I definitely want in on that. What is the spot at the Anatole that you saw and thought would be a good location for shooting? I am planning to visit the hotel next week with some friends to get familiar with it ahead of time too. I'll try looking for that spot when I go.

Also, I mentioned it on my page already, but to give you a more detailed FYI - I am planning to participate in the cosplay contest on Saturday, so I will be unavailable for some time in the morning for the pre-judging (I don't know yet what time I'll be done with that since it's a first come, first serve basis) and then once I think 4:30pm rolls around, I'll have to report in for the cosplay contest setup/rehearsal. So I won't have a HUGE window of availability, but I should be able to join you guys sometime between the pre-judging and the rehearsal. I'm thinking around 2pm or 3pm would be pretty ideal for me personally, but I do not know what you all are wanting to do. So just lemme know when you figure things out. Can't wait!!

I actually have a photo. Not the best photo around, but you honestly can't miss this spot. It's one of the multiple entrances.

http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h159/mewchibix3/540161_173095172841193_1204502229_n_zps2d72764f.jp g

We thought this might be a good place. We were hoping to get some photos with the city in the background, but you can't see any big buildings or anything at the anatole. I was a bit upset since I really wanted some photos of T&B at night with the downtown lights in the background or something. Butttt we thought this would also be a good location for some photos. I know we're trying to light up our suits so it might look cool reflecting off the water in the black fountain things. It looks really really nice! You'll have to see it for yourself though~

If you go check it out, you should see if you like any spots for photos. When we went some kind of dancing event was going on so we weren't aloud in most of the rooms, but we got a good look around.

It all really depends if the group wants to do it that time. I know I have a One Piece photoshoot I plan to go to, but not sure when it is though. I'll make sure to contact you whenever we figure things out~ I really want to see your Barnaby! I'm so excited and I can't wait either! ^w^

Guhhhh, the Anatole is so gorgeous! Thanks for the photo! I will be sure to scope out good places as well. I think though, that those pools will be drained for A-kon. D: At least I heard the "reflecting pool" was going to be drained to prevent crazy people from jumping/falling in, and that looks like a reflection pool. Not 100% that's the exact one in question, it just looks like it might be. It's still a really lovely area, though. Hopefully my timing will be good when I go with few events going on. I'll try to remember to take a camera with me.

I know what you meeeaaan about wanting to get shots with the downtown skyline in the background!! That would be so flippin' cool! Alas, I guess that can only be accomplished on a separate occasion, haha. You guys are going to be lighting up your costumes too? I don't know if I'll be able to handle all of this awesomeness. XD

I knowwwww! They have so much nice artwork, nice staircases, nice lights, and just everything! It's so gorgeous! Ahh...I guess those were the reflecting pools. Damn...but I'm sure we'll find a place somewhere...hopefully. :c

Yeaah! It would be awesome if we could, but maybe we can sometime when everyone is free or something. I know my friend is trying to light up his Lunatic mask and maybe the bow as well and Dragon Kid's ears and staff. My boyfriend is going to try and light his up if he has time, if not he'll probably do it for Afest. I don't think we're putting any lights in Blue Rose...since we don't know where it would really fit in. I said we could make her boobies light up but that would be too much...LMFAO.

I know I won't be able to handle all the awesomeness of everything! Ahhh!
