Fan Expo 2011 Cosplay Progress

It's early and I figure maybe no one is thinking about it just yet since August is still about 6 months away but, I know I am and maybe you are too. I'm planning on cosplaying Hal Jordan (female version) Green Lantern for Fan Expo this year and I must say I'm pretty damn excited. I figured that I'll probably purchase my suit from Heroes in Tights for sure. I found some wonderful vibrant green circle contacts online that I can get in prescription with is a bonus for me cause I really wanted green eyes for the cosplay (plus I wanna be able to see). I haven't gotten anything going just yet since I've been working on trying to get a bit more fit for my Green Lantern by Fan Expo.

Anyone else got anything planned or started yet?

i really want to cosplay this year, last year was my first. But i dont know what to go as.

I really dont want anything bulky seeing as how u could barely move at the con as it was, and it has to be something very few people go as but everyone will recognize.

i was thinking prince of persia warrior within, might take a while and all that thick leather would be expensive but i think i could pull it off

I got a sweater and skirt already for my River Tam cosplay. Now all I need is the wig and boots.

I bought my light up ring and my green circle contact lenses tonight for my Green Lantern cosplay. I'm going to be so excited to get them!

Oddly enough, my Fan Expo costume is farther along than my Aniime North costume. :P

For fan expo this year I'm doing classic fly-form Baxter Stockman from TMNT. I have a lot of the components at this point, but I'm still waiting on some key items to actually put it all together.

I'm already checking out masks to buy and I don't even have my spandex suit yet cause I wanna exercise for a few months to see if my weight comes down a bit and then get it. But, I love e-mailing people to ask questions about their products in the meantime. I think I have found a nice brown wig for my Hal Jordan cosplay. I have to get heat resistant cause it makes a big difference in how it looks, feels and it's just easier to manage overall. I would get one from the site on here but, they don't have what I'm looking for. u_u Now I just gotta pick which shade of brown I want. XD

Has anyone worn a spandex suit for cosplay before? Any tips or heads up about wearing them?

Haha alright. I had a few comments about it on FB. One said butt sweat and another told me not to get a boner. @_@ I'm a women. XDDDD I think I'm just more worried about armpit stains then anything. Where is your costume coming from? I'm going to get mine at Heroes in Tights.

I just got one off ebay. I'm not looking to put a lot of cash into this suit, it's just to simulate Metabee's tinpet frame.

Morrigan Aensland is one of the costumes I'll be bringing and she'll be ready for AN so it'll only be touch ups for her.
As for the others, I will be bringing Aphrodite IX, which will need completion behind the top and wig (have them already yay) and Madame De Pompadour from Doctor Who: The Girl In The Fireplace episode. I already have my base gown done for Madam as well as the petticoat to keep it nice and bulky, but LOTS of detailing has to be done as well as sleeves and hair work.

Oooo my fiance loves The Dark Crystal! I hope I see you there this year. u_u I couldn't find you last year and I kept an eye out. Well, 2 eyes in fact. LOL!!

I guess they shipped my Green Lantern ring already. I hope my circle lenses got shipped as well. I guess I'll have to wait and see. n_n I also hope my camera gets fixed in time cause I wanna post some pictures when I get the stuff. Not sure if it will be able to get fixed. Might have to get a new camera. T_T

Oh man. I'm having such a hard time picking out which brown wig to go with and which suit I should go with as well. It's sooo HARD! >_< I have never had this much problems just picking stuff out before for a cosplay. I think it's because I really don't know much just yet about Hal Jordan and whatnot. Like I know a bit from what I have read and seen but, still. u_u I have about 4 wigs picked out and 2 or 3 suits lined up as well for me to decided what I should go with. Choices, choices. :3
