I know, I was super frustrated, since I logged on at 9 on the dot, and it just loaded...loaded...loaded...then told me that the waiting room had reached "maximum occupancy" and passes were "no longer available."

Well, on the brighter side, I can use the money and put it toward a costume I've been wanting to work on for a LONG time and keep putting off. Nah..nah..nah..nah...nah...anyone? I tend to jump around a LOT when cosplaying, but I've been wanting to cosplay as her since I was about five, lol.

As for Billy, unitards actually aren't that hard, but it depends on how much time you have. I'd recommend either a Kwik-sew unitard pattern which you could easily adjust to have the zip up the back. I'd buy extra, cheaper fabric for a test run, just in case, and then you can use the test run pieces for your final product Oooh, some 4-way stretch vinyl would work perfectly!

OR order a cheapie unitard/morph/zentai from ebay, cut it up, and then use it as a pattern so that you have something more tactile to work with. Kind of like what Kelldar did with her Batgirl costume. (although she was lucky enough just just have one lying around :P)

The base unitard would work great, too, with some accessorizing, but wouldn't be as accurate, especially since the side tan-ish panels would be kinda tricky unless you actually cut apart the legs and sewed in the panels... Just depends upon what you're up to

Oh goodness, this sounds really complicated. xD I want to be as accurate as possible but I'm afraid of making the whole thing. I was just going to sew the side panels TO the base and then add the detailing. And try to avoid good old spandex scrunch in that way. But if you don't think that would look right in the end I'll have to try a different approach. x:

I have until Comic-con to make it (I found myself a Teddy!) but limited access to good fabrics and patterns in Hawaii. So I'd have to either order everything online, or just hope I can bust out a superhero uniform in a month and a half.

As far as I know for myself no comic-con tickets. We'll just have to see when the dates get closer. I'm gonna still work on Shadowcat just in case and if I don't well I could still get pictures of her done x3

Buuuut yay Batgirl! I really want to see it done! Makes me even more excited to work on Poison Ivy! I really like Kelldar's outfits! I definitely need to save the website for when I do do Enchantress! xD

I hope nobody tried to buy tickets with firefox like I did, because apparently, the site wasn't compatible with firefox

I am incredibly disappointed in CC I thought they were supposed to have it all figured out. x-x Or at least they were trying. Guh, pretty soon none of my friends are going to be able to go and then what fun is that...

Now.. I'm completely new to this whole 'big convention' thing since Little ol' Colorado here doesn't have a big convention.

But if you don't have tickets to CC are you not able to still go and just hang out?

Just curious cuz everything in Colorado you can just kinda chill around but not go into any of the events..

For CC there are still events and things that take place OUTSIDE of the convention. Usually movie promotions and whatnot allow anyone to take part. People also will take the trolley down to watch anyone roaming around in costume and just to generally see what's up. Anything INSIDE the convention center you can not get to. CC is pretty stupidly strict with things like that, and it's really annoying that you have to sell your soul pretty much for this convention.

Anime Expo however, you can wander around the convention center without a pass and they open Dealer's hall after 3:00 to everyone even if you don't have a pass. About the only thing you can't get to are panels and such but I've never gone to those. Never gone to any for CC either but that's a different story.

Don't know anything about other conventions.

I guess it makes sense somewhat since CC is so big and in such demand as is. -nod- Anyway, thank you that's good to know

Hey everyone,

haven't posted in awhile since I've been pretty busy and just got back from katsucon.

Sorry to hear about the Comic Con tickets, I guess just me and Tulipe for now.

Hey SD peeps, if you couldn't get tickets.... I'd say just head down by the convention center anyway. Half of the cool stuff happens OUTSIDE of the con! (Plus, you don't need a badge for anything going on in the hotel next door). I actually miss out on stuff because I'm AT the convention! LOL I only find out when I see pics or videos online later.

In another news.... finishing up my Link cosplay! YAY!

(random bathroom shot, it's tradition)

Freaking love that wig, Jimmy!~ And I'll know by the end of tomorrow what days I have off next week--Sugar Rush at the chocolate exhibit at the Nat? And the Social deal is A-Okay with me~

As for my end...this Ice Queen skirt is gonna kill me..8 yards alone in the top layer, and now onto 8 more for the bottom and the bustle is 5 more yards. This will all go on top of two extra full petticoats and a 4-hoop skirt *GAH* Watch out for the monster dress!

@Poody: Your OoA Link is great! The wig is fantastic! x3 Me and my family are still planning to go and walk around the convention center! My niece and nephew really want to wear their Midna and Link cosplays (and others as well) during those days! Hopefully my older sister can finish Zora Armor Link~!

Ayaasan: Whoa! That is a monster dress! Don't let it eat you alive! xD
