@CJ-Kun: Very cool! PM me more about her so we don't flame the thread.

@Riia: It's great to hear from you! Yes, of course, how can I forget? ^____^ I will definitely be asking for my models again as well as new ones! I hope to have many more designers this year. I didn't realize how many people were not familiar with Lolita and Japanese sub fashion at RC, so this year I want to focus all my designs on Lolita styles and Mori Girl. Maybe Dolly and Vidual Kei too? Ha ha ha, well, it really depends on what I'm inspired to make. (I do want to make another decora styled outfit, like Hott Mess) So many things to make! But color and cuteness will be the main goal.

So I was thinking about just buying some cheap leather gloves, cutting them to make it into fingerless and paint the gold trim on there. What do you think about that?

Also I have never wore a wig before. So I was wondering if I need to wash it before wearing. It prestyled. Any other advice u can give me would be great. It's a blonde wig.
Yeeahhhh you have to be careful with painting fabric, especially anything with a stretch since fabric paint isn't flexible. Painting fabric usually does better on a fabric that's just gonna lay flat or not be subjected to any body part that would stretch it. Your idea to use leather, however, is a great alternative! It'll hold up to the paint and be more durable. It's a learning process!

Wigs typically don't need to be washed unless there's something funky in there. Assuming you're talking about the Mami wig, be careful with it. Just remember the basic wig rules: Keep it from being crushed, keep it away from anything that might tangle it, and don't headbang in it.

@Seven: Wow I am so excited! You should make some flyers this year and have a few of the models walking around the con in your amazing outfits and passing them out! Last year we had a big audience but this year we need a full house! =D

@Riia- That is a fantastic idea!! I will have to do that. A full house would be really epic! <3 I'm hoping to have a few more designers this year, which will mean more models needed, which means more families? (Maybe) But we'll see! I had planned for five designers to be in the show, but in the end we had the two. This year I'm planning to have at least double the outfits...so much work.

I'll be attending with my friends and our husbands (the men won't dress up...>.<) and I wanted to know who all is going as Naruto characters? I would love to get pictures and fully live my first experience at a convention.... (Apparently I chose a pretty big con to start off with... Ugh...)
Unfortunately, I'll only be attending two days. (Almost 100% Saturday and Sunday...)

Hope to hear from everyone! ^^
I will be at A-Kon again as Chouji (my 9th year at A-Kon, 4th year as chouji)

Oh, how exciting! Please PM me his measurements, shoe size, and a picture (when you can; there is still time). I'd like to make something that would match his 'look'.

Ha ha ha, well I do have a day job! I work as an advertising agency art director, which is our fancy term for lead graphic designer, I suppose. I just love doing fashion and cosplay during my free time...but yes, I want this year to be bigger and more colorful! I'm already looking into buying new crazy wigs and shoes! I'll post my new outfits on the OSO facebook page once they are made. (Hopefully professionally shot photos, if I can manage that.)

That is true. Sadly it was pretty much nothing but Hetalia and Homestuck at last year's A-Kon.

Homestuck and ponies. That's all people are starting to do these days. :/ It's gettin to be rather bothersome when you want to cosplay with someone and they are like 'oh yea i'm going to be karkat, applejax, and [insert some other homestuck or pony character whose name i do not know]' and you're just like '......bye....' It's not that hard to make either costumes so everyone is doing them because it's "easy". Also the fandoms like freak out if you say you don't like either so I avoid the pony creeps and annoying trolls.

Homestuck cosplayers try to be in character and just start acting like complete idiots or assholes and it really annoys me. At Izumi a group of trolls was annoying my gf and wouldn't leave her alone because she was cosplaying Ciel and they kept calling her a girl and saying that she wasn't a boy when yea..she is a girl but she is cosplaying a boy let her have her fun.

They are always loud and over the top and think they are cool when really. They are just starting to be REALLY annoying.

The ponies whine about everything and are just as big a spazes as homestuck people. A lot tend to be like "OH MY GOD PINKIEPIE!!!" And scream and run at each other and become really loud.....yes all cosplayers are loud but the ponies and stuckers are louder then most everyone else. :/

*Cringe* I know what you mean about the ponies. Oh God.

Is it just me or have more Pokemon suits been popping up a lot more, too? I feel like I keep seeing more and more fur suits.
