We may also attend as FFXIII characters (Hope, Sahz and Vanille) ~ though a great deal depends on the time crunch and whether we can get the time off ^^;;

Well stay in touch and if it looks promising closer to the date, we can swap info/details.

It's always fun to have a group. And with all of the FFXIII bound to be all over that event ~ numbers might help us get noticed

It also depends on my doing a shitload of crunches to pull off Vanille's costume. :P

Groups are highly awesome however. (Do we get props for having an actual black guy as Sahz?)

If you haven't started yet ~ coseyes has very reasonable prices on the FF gear they offer ~ http://coseyes.com/index.php?main_pa...cPath=830_1304 They have a Sera and a Snow. Might be worth a look.

Our Vanille is shopping there Though we're going to alter/make a few pieces when we get it. The price is still right ^^

Have you ordered from them before? I quite like the look of their Lightning, but I can't help but feel a bit cautious!

Shortsheik has used them for a Ayanami Rei costume. The fabric quality was decent, the costume was as-photographed and it fit like a charm. The only down-side I suppose is that it takes awhile (Chinese factory) and that the website/furikomi process is a bit confusing. They require some odd additional emails to confirm information, only give you bank furikomi information on initial order confirmation (so write it down then!) and have sizing choices in odd places on their order forms.

I have two orders of my own processing with them now. So I can give you more information when those arrive.

If you're thinking of Lightning... how about joining us?

You don't have a Lightning yet? If you report back favorably about your costume construction, I might buy one and join you! That would be really cool. I don't suppose you know if you can pay by credit card (Japanese credit card, that is) rather than furikomi? Furikomi scares me...

We're short Lightning, Fang and a host of minor characters/summons

Lightning's rather important, right?

We'd love to have one!

Will let you know how the costumes turn out for us. Still plenty of time to order pre-made. Though I think furikomi is the only method of payment. They ~might~ have COD (I don't remember). If you're having trouble with furikomi, I can help you out though.

Other lightning options:

http://brilliant-cos.ocnk.net/product/505 (have never ordered here)
http://cosplus.ocnk.net/product/814 (have never ordered here)
http://www.trymax1.com/product/1072 (have never ordered here)

Some may accept credit cards.

It's very likely I'll get to attend Tokyo Game Show again this year. Last time was in 2007!

I was planning on doing King of Fighters and IDOLM@STER cosplay (like.. I did in 2007.. haha). But this FF13 group is kinda tempting you guys, haha.

You're welcome to join, of course. But whatever you end up doing, please come and hang out a bit ^^/
