I'm going to be booking 2 rooms, we have 7 people right now (and looking for an 8th thats an adult both to reduce hotel costs and so we can get a pack of 4 passes so 'one is free', the other 4 girls fall under the 17 and under and get in for $25)...

Generally hotel blocks for conventions and conferences that have special rates will open up 1 year to the date of the event. I spoke to Dawn about this and I'm pretty sure that's what she said. To be fair it was 2am and I was tired XD but that's what I would assume right now.

Depending on how this summer's faery-fest costume turns out, I might be wearing it instead of my moon fairy plan... (combination of poor college student already in fashion and Costume-Con being the week before finals, and if the costume's awesome, why wear it only once?) but I won't know til I get sewing it. (It's essentially a four elements-themed dance costume and it's a riot of the four elemental colours.)

I need to start working on the two biggest projects I have sometime this year... oh the joy of making the majority of both costumes for a duet - partner is helping at least!

Just making three sets of wings for two costumes.... ouf.... I will die xD But hopefully it'll be easy sewing like it looks. If not, well... good thing I'm skipping some things so I can work on them!

I want to do Asuka from NGE but I'd feel out of place, but I'm not sure what I'd want to cosplay, if anything historical or sci-fi. Maybe I'll do the kimono version or something.

I'm getting frustrated with Regina because I personally don't have to floor space to paint that much brocade fabric/pattern. I have to see what a shopping trip to Toronto will bring but I might in the end drop that outfit. >_< Why did they have to use such and odd damascus fabric!

But Soryuu is a go and I'm finding myself excite to finally do it after a decade of loving the series. Plus I get to pick the colour and textiles I want to use with him rather then trying to match colours and patterns. ^_^ I like have the choices.


That said I'd love to do a Movie costume design that has a history theme to it. Something that is recognizable as well like my Red Queen if I can't get Regina going. I'm just drawing a blank now. lol Either that or tackle Granado Espada (An Jeongwon) and their impressive designs.

http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/328355 <-I'm not sure if this is a game skin.

My friend and I plan on making some embroidered jackets in the style of the older Turkic fashion over the summer, but the major one I'm working on, is my historically accurate Hittite costume. My deer skins just need to be all stretch out before I can smoke them for my shoes and leather straps. The raw wool is still in pile glaring at me to clean it, so I can start spinning it.

Rhapsados: Evangelion is fine, the 'sci-fi/fantasy' masquerade is basically for everything including anime. You don't have to do historical if you don't want to!

Ani_Bee: I looooove that red dress ♥♥

I've signed on to do PAX East next year (April 11-13), but I'm hopeful I can make it out to this one as well. I feel obligated since I did one of those "Join me at Costume-Con 32" photos. :P

I need to do my ancient Greek muse costume for this. I made it for Hallowe'en one year out of satin but I really want to find some peplos-and-himation appropriate wool. I doubt if I'll find anything wide enough for a peplos, but if it's drapey enough I can get away with sewing together a couple of lengths of 45" fabric and the side seams shouldn't be noticeable.

In the painting I linked to, they're not wearing peplos, they're just sort of artistically draped. I want to use the same colours with a more Greek garment. The painting is of Urania, the muse of astronomy, and Calliope, the muse of epic poetry. (Caption: "Shush, that Roddenberry guy is spying on us again.")

This sounds super cool. I'm very interested to see it. ^_^

Just out of curiosity how many people do you think will attend? I'm just curious about how big it's going to be. I'm so excited either way *A*

size wise I'm think the last year AN was held at the Marriott would be a good guess. The Sharaton is usually packed during AN as well. So I would guess 2000 - 5000 people.



I will guess the hotel room rates will be up soon.
