I wish I could "Like" this post XD

MaiSheri - I would recommend PMing Kaijugal if you're not sure...I had a similar question a while back (a friend are planning to do something for the historical masquerade based on a film with costumes that are sorta-kinda historical), and she was able to provide a super helpful answer

I suppose I'm saying that I'm not sure where the line between "historical" and "historical interpretation" is, especially since I know that the comic's writer and artist are pretty good about doing their research to begin with.
I'm not sure with my answer but I think that usually, when doing a historical interpretation, it has to be clear that it's an interpretation. Like the batman dress here : http://costumecon32.com/programming-...al-masquerade/

From my understanding, you're better to have a clear interpretation than trying to please both the re-creation and the historical accuracy.

so I've changed my mind... I'm going to be coming to this...
I plan to make Caterina Sforza for the Fantasy Masquerade... I still dont know all the rules, but I talked to the table staff at Con-G and they let me know that they don't have the rules as strict for this one, like you CAN wear your cosplay all day, and you CAN wear cosplays that are bought (in the halls) and you CAN wear cosplays you've worn before (in the halls)... and that its going to be a lot more relaxed then I seemed to be under the impression of...

When does the hotel rate get posted? I'm trying to scrape together enough money to go AND have spending money, and I'd really like to know how much I'm going to need.

I asked on facebook and they said they will release the hotel block exactly one year before the event, so the end of April...

Thanks. Are they only booking one hotel with the rate or are there a few with the convention? I have no idea how big Costume-Con is/will be.:P

The costume-con's size really varies from region to region. It's a lot smaller than Anime North though. I think only one hotel will be enough but it would be a pleasant surprise if they need more

yeah, they told me that the Sheridan would contain us all especially if people room in groups of 4 XP BUT I think the Crowne Plaza isn't too expensive normally so even without a rate, that maybe a good secondary option!

And being right across the street, that's not bad. But I'll be booking a single (just me and boyfriend), so I guess I'll make sure to call early.
