Welp, I woulda put this in the A-Kon 24 Official Cosplay Contest Rules thread, but it seems it's been pruned! Anyway.....

Now that I've completed the final paperwork for all the Saturday night Cosplay Contest entries, I can announce that we will be taking approximately 36 walk-on signups at the convention itself. Signups for these spaces are on a first come, first served basis and will start at 10 AM Saturday morning in DeSoto A (Cosplay HQ). Please do not form a line before 10 AM. (You may promenade up and down the hallway before 10 AM, but the actual lineup for the spots will be at 10 AM sharp!)

So much to do before the con... my whole Sunday (last day off before con) is going to be nothing but helping my seamstress friend finish costumes. It's going to be a whole day of detailing and glitter bombing. XD

Finishing up Abel and Praxis from Starfighter, and desperately searching the internet for other Starfighter people we might be able to meet up with!

Also! Attn: Pokemon cosplayers: Just so you know, there appear to be some meeting rooms named after certain precious gem stones Might want to think about getting some choice pictures by the signs!

I'm wearing 1 new costume - (Richter Belmont) and one old costume- Ippo!

I missed out on A-Kon last year because I went to E3 instead. I cannot wait for next week, it's been two whole years since I've been to A-kon!

Last time I went I saw some of you cosplay.com forum posters there. Hope to meet some of you guys this year.

I copy/pasted for you, Elin, in the rules thread and reinstated it.

Now for breakfast, then cosplay grinding. Wooo! Let's see how much sewing I can get done today.

Thank you ma'am!

I'm going to spending all day tomorrow being my seamstress friend's helper monkey. We will get all the costumes done. Hopefully. (There are only eight costumes we need to finish... in three days... dear lord what have we done...)

Mehdia- I hope you can if nothing else you can borrow mine for a few pics.

So tired I still have so much to do I need to work on stuff but bleh. I just want to sleep. I have lots of sanding and painting left, then a little sewing, a bit of wig prep, and a few props to finish off. Sylvanas will be the death of me.

That's really sweet of you! If I don't get it finished and see you I would love to borrow it for a few pictures. I still haven't gotten my friend to settle on a day to wear our costumes since he's got Garterbelt and Q from Street Fighter for the weekend.

I dunno how you can finish 8 costumes in 3 days, Elin, but I wish you the best of luck. Even on a good run, it takes me 3-4 days to finish the simplest of costumes, mostly because of work and school.

I have finished what I'm going to be able to finish for A-Kon. I dislike the fit of my Erza costume, mostly because I didn't have proper time to use slopers and fit it to my own body proportions, but I'm just going to have to make it work for this year. I still need to trace the Fairy Tail mark onto vinyl and purchase tights, but that's easily enough done.

Today is for laundry and general apartment cleaning (as well as destressing), and tomorrow will be packing and cosplay pics.

Thankfully, I got word that my forearm bracers were shipped Thursday. Only took a month for 2 forearm covers. So I should have time to get them done before the convention. Just have to attach the studs, little paint, and do the leather strapping.
