I'm sorry if I sound dumb but have you ever ordered off taobao before? Is it a good website? Cause I was tempted to order the emblems off of there...

Taobao is eBay for China. You actually need a chinese bank account to order there, or use an agent that makes the purchase for you, then ships the merchandise to you once they receive it for a commission fee.

A cosplayer I follow (OwlDepot) bought her Ymir cosplay from a user named 'CosSky' on there -- and from the pictures she posted, it looks *great*!

(I'm looking into options to order the uniform from there as well --- I might just end up order the Ymir version men-sized and ditching the shirt for the version Jean has, or the Eren version --- but I really want the scouting legion jacket).

I used Taobao Spree in the past as my agent. But it worth it if your needing a lot of stuff as the pricing about half what ebay seller list the same commissioners/manifatures good for. Also their up front about the service fee rather then saying it's the double the price. lol

I'm going to be cosplaying Mikasa at least three times next year because I love her just that much, and one of those times is definitely going to be Anime North. I might be a lone Mikasa at times, but I might be able to wrangle up an Armin and/or an Eren. Other times, I'll probably be tagging along with one of my friends and her sister (HareyuNanami, actually, earlier in this thread). I'm really looking forward to all of the Attack on Titan next year! owo

Sounds good how much was the shipping to Canada?

I don't know if you guys saw this but... I suddenly feel very frightened to make mine.

I will definitely be cosplaying a character from the scouting legion. Probably Bertholdt Fubar so that I don't have to do anything with my hair for once and because I'm tall. The jacket is way outside of my experience and comfort zone so I'm getting it made elsewhere, but I'd like to start on the 3D maneuver gear after some things settle down next month.

Now that I'm caught up on the series ^^;; Mine is switching from Sasha to Hanji Zoe, because hello I love her so much. (Not that I don't love Sasha!) And my boyfriend is doing Rivaille <3

Haha, yes none of those additions are Con-approved except a smoke machine.


Taobao Spree will give you three different shipping options from $15 to $40 depending on how fast you need the items. it will also vary but weight for the items you get.

Planning on going as Sasha next year. I'm to sure if I'll be doing the 3D Gear or not yet. It might end up being an add-on to the cosplay in the future but, I'll see how the basic things go first. :3

I've also thought about being Armin too. T_T

SnK photoshoot coordination

Hi guys! I started a FB group for the AN 2014 cosplay shoot. Someone referred me to this page so I just want to coordinate with you guys as well for times/dates/locations etc. I also have a doc started so we know who everyone is cosplaying as. If you have FB please add yourself to the group:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/shingekinokyojincosplay

I can also add anyone as admins on it

As I was this year, I'll be the young Mikasa (ie, white dress/pink sweater) so if I don't ruin the atmosphere, I really wanna join in ;-;
