Wink What's your new costume this CTcon?

I don't know about the rest of you, but I always try to make at least one new costume each year, and since CTcon is the con I always go to I generally debut it there.

This year I'll have at LEAST two new costumes, one much more detailed than the other. Since I'm in the Cosplay Musical I'll probably have a bunch of random costumes, but one I'd like to take off the stage too is Winry, from FMA. It won't be anything special, mostly some cloths I'll buy and alter (if I haven't already, such as with the jumpsuit I'm borrowing from one of Kaylee Frye costumes) but I'm really excited for it nonetheless.

My main costume this year is (hopefully) going to be Lina Inverse from Slayers (this costume specifically the variation from NEXT, aka season 2 of the anime series). I've been waiting to do this costume since I was at least 14--that's over six years ago! I'm so excited to finally be doing it, but also glad I waited since if I'd done it back then my mom would have been making it for me and with Lina as one of my most favorite characters I'd rather put the work into it myself.

What about you?

I think I'll definately be gettin Zidane done by then, and then hopefully Ancient version Yami Bakura. But it'll probably only be Zidane, because I'm slow with costumes, and I don't want to rush and mess up any of it. ^_^

If my cosplay plans don't change...again...I will be going as:

First Day - Kairi (pink dress, KH2)

Second Day - Ash Ketchum (yes, from Pokémon), but in his Diamond and Pearl outfit (Newest Series/Season)...because I love the pants. =O They're totally awesome. The pockets...are like...big enough to hold a cellphone and an MP3 Player.

Third Day - Yasuna Kamiizumi from Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~

First and Third day were changed various times. XD; The last change was because of my friend. =3 She's going as Roxas. And I asked her to be Hazumu. =3

...I'm in charge of making ten costumes though, so I'm (sort of) not happy about that. =_=; I must make three for me, three for my friend being Roxas, three for my younger sister, and one for one of my other friends. XP But that's because I'm the only one who can sew. XD; But my friends are all paying for their own fabric! ^^ Yeah...I'm just rambling now...

Ooo. =3 That's cool. XD; I'm trying to get my mom to be Jessie. But she's like "But what colour is Jessie's hair? Is it fushia? Or red? It's different depending on the picture." What would you suggest for the wig colour? I was thinking red or burgandy.

Oi, so major update on my cosplay for this year...Looks like I'll be putting off Lina for another year ONCE AGAIN. I've got too many other costumes to do that require my hair to be blond. So! My connecticon cosplays for this year are now:

New:
Aeris from FFVII
Winry from FMA
Ino from Naruto
Elena from FFVII
Team Rocket Goon

Old:
Songstress Yuna from FFX-2
Summoner Yuna from FFX (maybe)

Holy crap thats a lot of costumes O_o

Luckily the only ones I'm hand making entirely are Aeris and Ino. The other ones are gunna be store bought & altered.

Well-- mine IS a top-secret project at the moment, but let's just say that it will involve fibre-optic lighting...

Fiber-optic lighting? Now I'm intrigued.

I'm making two hopefully. I might only complete one though. If I complete anything it'll be Shikamaru. It'll be my first cosplay too. So I'm trying to put a lot of effort into it. Especially since almost all Shikamaru cosplays are bad. I'm going to try to make up for it.

Thinking of going as Clara/Psiren from FMA. Not as well known, but she has a surprising number of fans considering the number of episodes she was in. That would be...one.

Hopefully no Eds will chase me through the building. Entertaining thought, though.
