Weather problems

So I'm hoping to do my Victorian doll cosplay at Vancouver Fan Expo this weekend, but I'm a weather forecaster and...well...it looks like it's going to rain and I'm staying offsite.



Normally it wouldn't be a big deal but it's taffeta and huge, so water causes problems.

Uh oh! I'm sorry. At the convention that you're going to, does the hotel provide shuttle bus scheduling? Make sure you carry a big umbrella, like a special golf umbrella, so your dress won't get ruined. I would hate that for you if it got messed up

Yeah, I'm kind of have some weather delima myself this week. The anime convention that I'm going to this week, the weather forcast for my city is fine, but the place that the convention is held at, is another story. I just hope it stays sunny for Friday and Saturday. Not to mention, my cosplay has 2 parts. 1st part is made out of sateen and the 2nd part is made out of satin. Luckily, I'm staying at the hotel that the convention is held at

Anyway, I hope it works out for you In the meantime, I'll be looking out for the weather for the other city where my convention is-_-;

I'll be at Vancouver Fan Expo too! There is underground parking, but it's possible you may end up outside regardless. There is also an underground pathway to the mall nearby, but to get food and such it's far quicker to just walk across the street lol

The weather here is super unpredictable. I'm assuming you're from the lower mainland, so I'm sure you know this lol so either way, I recommend bringing an umbrella if you're worried about your costume getting wet. I'm sure you can find one that fits in well with your costume

Actually I'm a weather forecaster so I'm even more aware. :-)

As for an umbrella, the gown is oh...six feet across give or take. So that'd be a big umbrella. :-)

I'm worried about weather for Sakuracon this weekend. It'll be my first foray into body paint and I believe they're calling for a little rain. I don't want to put all this effort in just to have it all washed away!

I'll probably be wandering the halls between noon and 4 on the Saturday. I suspect it won't be difficult to pick me out. :-)

Could you pack the gown in something watertight and change in the hotel bathroom?

I like the idea of a lacy parasol to go with your costume, but like you said, that'd be a heckova umbrella.
