And gahhhh, that 'not sure yet almost sure cosplay' is giving me nightmares, I'm tired of dreaming of MAKING the stupid thing! ...yes making, not wearing, making -_-;

All plans for Final Fantasy are definite now.

You can add my wife and I to Final Fantasy VI.
I will be Locke, and she'll be doing her first crossplay as Setzer Gabbiani

Also, we're going to do Final Fantasy V (my favourite FF - we did her favourite this year -FFIV-)
So you can expect Bartz Klauser (not sure what version I'll make at the moment, I'm thinking either Amano or Dancer) and Faris Sherwiz (my wife will either be Captain Faris or Princess Faris)

Hot glue always seems to be the answer for everything eh? We'll see. I want to sew the "feathers" on the bottom of the dress.... I feel more confident having them sewn rather than glued.

Yes I will get some friends to take pictures yet i'm still planning it out. Hot Glue FTW. And maybe next year if you do get to go we'll take pictures of both

As for Fan Expo, last year we made the mistake of going on Sunday and hardly ANYONE was in costume. I was so disappointed.

@SuperBee
I think it'd much more durable with the hot glue and fabric idea. It'd make it more durable, but then again it does depend on how you end up sewing on the feathers

Uh well yes, sewing is better on the dress for adding the feathers to it, I meant gluing for the fabric behind each feather lol. ...preferably white fabric obviously, like cheap cotton or whatever you may have laying around ^^. You can sew the backing but you'll have a sewing line appearing on each feathers so... Just don't glue where you plan on sewing (like leave a border/line without glue) otherwise you'll need to wash your needles quite a lot because of the glue it will need to go through ^^; ...I hope I make sense now lol. Just pretty much a backing to each feather in fabric, fabric been cut the same shape as the craft foam then glued to each of them, will keep them from tearing apart.

*jaw drops* Kain! O_O Maybe I need to go to Fan Expo and break out my Rosa cosplay. I'd love to get pictures together! Let's discuss further on FX thread or PM! ^_^ (although wish Rydia was there too! ♥)

A FFIV group at some point would be so fun. For now, please go ahead and put me down for Rinoa for the Saturday, and my daughter as Chibi Selphie on the Saturday, Chibi Zidane on Sunday. I'll know in January if that's going to happen or not. ^^

I'm still thinking about picking up my dropped Vanille project, since I have most supplies. I'm kind of tempted to make a Yeul cosplay, but maybe I'm too tall for Yeul. Still want to do Noel at some point, or maybe Gau. Sigh. *indecisive*

I'll think about it.. it's been really bugging me. I might use foam on the bottom and felt for the first 2. Also I have seen in reference pictures that there aren't feathers in the back but one lady made one with feathers in the back so I am going to do that.... more work but hopefully will look better in the end. As for the tiara, I am making it. I am pro with wire crafting so I think I can make one.

I said I was doing Penelo (12) and my friend was doing Balthier. Looks like that plan is being shipped back a couple years. Sigh. Let's just say it wasn't my decision. -_-;;

Aww At least you'll still get to do her at some point - so at least there's that.
I was looking forward to see your Penelo.

@Cyrennia: Aww, don't let height stop ya from cosplaying her, I think you'd be a really cute Yeul! Besides, I cosplayed Cid from FF IV who is a dwarf soo.... http://www.cosplay.com/costume/406081/ yeah XD
It'd be also cool if you picked back up on Vanille though! I can't wait to do FF IV too!! it would be soooo much fun! FF IV groups are not seen enough. D8 WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN RIGHT?! I'm glad you have cosplay intrest in FF VIII btw! ^_^

@jennifafa: I'm glad that more people are doing Serahs other outfits from XIII-2!! That will be very lovely!~

@SuperBee: Much luck!~ ^_^ Gahhhh I wish I had some of your wire crafting skills lol. When will you start making your Yuna cosplay? O.O I'm still... not quite decided with mine yet. xD

@miyatree: Awww... I'm sorry about that! I was looking forward to your cosplays... But hey.. a few years back is ok, it happens. Someday you'll cosplay as Penelo!~ ^^
