Been every year since '08. It's a blast, but it can be a little overwhelming. I should be there this year.

Hello!!! I'm also a noob to gencon, going as well with my fiance and his friends. They've been 2 years now but they've never done any cosplay!!! O_o I'm trying to convince them to do something together, I'm the sewing diva in my circle of friends and i have no problem making the outfits, but what to make???

also do people wear costumes on days other than the costume contest?

gracias!!!

I've seen people wear costumes everyday of the con, but there are more on the day of the contest. Only a small number enter the contest because there isn't much room. They have a costume parade before the contest. Anyone in the contest and anyone in costume can be a part of the parade. At least that is the way it seemed two years ago. Every aspect of costume is represented on stage and in the halls. I've seen Anime through Video Games. Steampunk is there but I don't think I've ever seen Japanese street fashion like Lolita etc.

Thank you @Ororo Monroe!

Yea i'm thinking of doing generic anime girl and of course a tardis dress definitely but for the contest I want to do something unique, maybe a steampunk geisha? lol, if not then im deciding between some classics of course, tsunade, lili from tekken, tifa, or Maya (tenjou tenge). Any ideas welcome! If anyone else on the forum wants to get together and do a group cosplay I'm down as well!!!

I have too many costumes I'm working on/ finding it difficult to afford as it is, but I'd be willing to do a meet up. I've never done a meet up before.

I would be too! I'm down for anything, if you want to enter the contest we should do a duo or something that makes sense together. i.e. weapon and meister from Soul Eater. My anime is a little outdated but Im really ok with anything! Let me know what you've had in mind and I can coordinate
ill update my profile with a picture so you can see what i look like
I'm excited

I've already been volunteered as a stage ninja for my Anime group. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what a meet up is. I thought it was just meeting at a certain time and place.

I won't say no one saw your thread. I myself didn't seen it because I'd found and started posting on this one before your thread was started. Welcome to the group. I'm sorry you missed the gencon 2011 costume contest. That was the last year I got to attend. They had a three way time for the Best of Show/ Crowd Favorite. Warhammer 40K troupe, Batman Returns, and Halfing Ork...

Sorry about the mix up Ororo Monroe, I thought a meet up for cosplay was coordinating the outfits, Either way, goodluck with your anime group!

@mqnania your cosplay pics are amazing!
