Thanks to a bunch of things accumulating, I'm not gonna be able to make my Jellal costume in time. I did the best I could, but not having any sewing classes, I finally reached my limit with making the coat. I managed to make the pants, but they ended up being too small, so I'd have to completely re-do them as well. Super depressed about this. I was looking forward to cosplaying him.

Now I gotta find something fairly easy to put together last minute....

#2 - Cosplay registration...if you're not doing any of the competitions, do you have to register your cosplay or can you just show up in it no problem? This is my first time cosplaying and I don't wanna get in trouble for not following rules.

#3 - What's the drama surrounding this year's con? I heard that people are upset at A-kon this year because it's dropping the ball some how. I've been 3 times and each time it was super amazing...what's different this time?

1. They did answer that in the tweet. However, if they can get it out sooner they usually will.

2. Nope. You only need to register for competitions. Otherwise, just show up in cosplay and have a blast.

3. There is drama every year. For every con. Anywhere. It's just one of those things. The convention is what you make of it

I feel the same way. Hopefully within the next week I'll finish Yue, leaving me about three weeks to attempt to draft Erza. (Not a hard costume, but I have finals in two weeks, so time is lacking.) Even if I finish the robe, I won't have the bisento unless some miraculous cosplay elves find me a TARDIS. (And an extra person to carry around filming equipment, lol.) I'm trying to scrounge up things to throw together last minute cosplay stuff...

There's actually a really solid pants pattern--I think McCall makes it--called Perfect Fit. They have a tailored slacks version and an elastic waistband version with instructions on how to alter them as needed. Great stuff, and highly recommended.

Darn finals are stressing me out! I just want to sew at this point, but I have a week left and then I'm done and can crack down on my cosplays... I haven't touched them in such a long time that I'm starting to worry! But I ordered some wigs a few days ago and I should be okay as long as I really work hard in the upcoming weeks.
Good luck everyone!

Well my MK9 Noob Saibot outfit went to hell. I did'nt know it but after I got the outfit the forearm bracers were made of thin wood looking linoleum flooring painted black. And it actually looked like leather to me. Until I peeled back 1 of the layers and saw the ugly part.
The good news is that I have enough time and have hired someone to build new bracers for my outfit.

Ughhhh. I make props the same way a 3 year old does arts and crafts in day care. Kyoko's spear is about halfway finished, but I'm just crying deeply at it.

On a brighter note, I think my Timeskip Nia is going to be finished in time for Akon, which is exciting!

And I'm still searching desperately for a could-be Madoka Magica photoshoot meetup, but have yet to hear any word of one, and I have zero ability or knowledge to set up one, so I'm just kind of...sadly sitting here. ;____;

I've reached the conclusion that there's a high probability that I won't have my Cardinal Sforza costume done by A-kon because I hit a lot of slow downs, have commissions to finish, and got sick after my brother's wedding. So I might just finish up Juvia since I'm halfway done already and bring some other costumes. My friend said he's wearing his Garterbelt costume again this year so I will take Stocking back (even though we won't have our Panty this year) and if I get the key done for my wind-up doll, I will be wearing that. And maybe dragging a comfy goof around costume for a character from Katekyo Hitman Reborn since I don't actually have to make anything for those really. But if Cardinal Sforza gets done, awesome. But I'm not holding my breath on it.

I know the feeling about not having the time to properly finish things. But I will do my darndest to finish Erza just so I can find you and take a pic with you. ^_^ In a respectful way, of course.

Myribee: don't sweat it, honestly. We all had to start learning somewhere, and you learn a LOT by doing it yourself. You should be proud of your efforts and proud to be a cosplayer.

Benihime: are you still bringing Sakura? I'm nearly done with Yue. Thank the cosplay gods.

I can try, but I don't know when I'll have time to wear her..it depends on if my friend and I are entering the video game contest

I've changed my cosplay plans up for A-Kon, due to friends that are coming along and to try to lighten the load in our small car. >w<

I'll be doing casual Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians and Loke from Fairy Tail. If I have time, I might bring out a secret cosplay...only depends on how much I can get done in 4 weeks. >w< If not, I'll also be bringing my purple and white bunny feet and might be wearing ears on a headband, hanging down, and bunny tail. Not sur
e of what to do, since I gave away my matching wig. *shrugs* See you guys there!

I feel your pain, I've got only 3 weeks to finish the 2 big costumes I've been working on for me and the bf, and I really dk if I'm going to make it T_T We've already had to cut out making our props for A-Kon, I'd hate to have to scratch wearing the costumes too ... hopefully we'll both get really lucky and be ok XD

I'm just doing my best to muddle through my crazy stack of stuff to do. I think I will be ok for most of it maybe just have to do more touch ups after. We shall see.

It seems we all are feeling some serious pains right now. I think for me, it would be best to slowly work on my Caterina costume, and if it gets done great, if not, I will perfect it and debut it whenever it's where I really want it to be. But Celydon, we will have to hunt each other down if you finish Erza (actually, we just actually need to meet since we've seen each other on forums forever and never met in person^^). And if I get to where I know for a fact I won't be finishing Caterina, I will repair my corset for Madam Red and wear that again because I love my Madam Red costume, and then I can maybe try to get Honekoneko made for Stocking. And there is a chance my brother's girlfriend (and maybe my brother) will want to don our xxxHolic costumes that we didn't finish in time for A-kon last year but wore at Anime Blues Con in Memphis two weeks later. We will be minus Himawari because my friend is in Japan right now, but we could have Yuuko, Watanuki, and Doumeki if they want to wear them.
