About the shoes, what size are you?

Because these are at payless and they have them in black:
http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp;jsessionid=115A39FC42902E0E72B63505A4C1 52AB.pss-app-03-p-app3?catId=cat10376&subCatId=&skuId=092802080&prod uctId=71097&lotId=092802&category=&catdisplayName= Brands

And they matched the only image I could find
http://www.cosplayhouse.com/images/D...ket_Sca-04.jpg

But any black flat will do. Remember if you find a woman's shoe (I remember cause I wear guys shoes sometimes with cosplays) guys sizes are about 2 sizes smaller than women's. So, if you were a size 7 in guys you'd be a size 9 in women's.

And for Sunday I don't know about anyone else on here but I know I have a photoshoot/meetup around 12. So, I'd have to check with them about how long it will last and I can get back to you about Sunday. It might cut it close. But, if I can, I'd love to!

But, anyone who can please feel free to talk with other people on here about setting up alternate hangouts. This was just to get people connected. ^^

Hmmm...I always thought it was the other way around. The things you learn when NOT in a classroom. heehee But in mens', I'm nearly breaking the scale at a 13 or 14...so I doubt they make shoes that big. Looks like I'm about screwed.

And I wish I knew more people that were both into Fruits Basket AND cosplayers. Ugh...times like this, I really hate living where I live. People are so anti...everything that isn't "hood, yo" in Baltimore...Murr...

Hey Naudae, did you ever find a pair of shoes? Did any of the amazon ones work out?

Sorano, I think my other shoot/meetup is from 12-2 on Sunday (and I'd need like 45 minutes ahead of that to change into costume). But if you want to meet anytime before or after that, I can bring my stuff with me for pictures. I'd love some pics of the high school boys together! If we meet up I'll drag Haru with me.

Some updates for Saturday!

Look for these guys in the main lobby! I'll be carrying those with a Hatsuharu. Yuki may or may not have a wreath of flower in my head (as Haru keeps threating he'll make me wear).

Here are some of the rocks I'll have as of last night. Drawing on uneven rock and painted acrylic was much harder than I though. (^_^ I need an artist! xD Thank god they're simplistic drawings. I can barely handle these.
http://i734.photobucket.com/albums/w...-50-21_311.jpg

I'll update more once the schedule is released and if anyone needs anything you know where to reach me. Or if anyone else wants to join just let us know! I'm super excited now that it's so close!

The ones you suggested from Payless definitely look great! I'm just worried about sizing. I used a conversion chart...and I don't think they make women's shoes that big. My shoe size is about a 13-14 in mens, so...that's like...15-16 in womens, I think?

The ones someone showed me on Amazon look good enough, but I read a few of the reviews and apparently they fall apart really easily.

I could give the Payless ones a try if I can get someone to get me to a local Payless and get the actual size taken there. If I'm wron and it's actually smaller, then my problems are solved...

What's amazing? The plushies? I begged this woman to make them for me because I saw her Ayame plush and fell in love.

I hope to pull him angrily out of someone's collar. xD



As for the shoes, the amazon person was me. I think the best bet might be ebay then. I typed in: "black slip shoes size 14" in men's shoes and found these pairs:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NIB-MENS-CANVAS-FLAT-SLIP-ON-SHOES-SLIPPER-COMFORT-GEAREX-SIZE-UP-TO-13-/281059531230?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&var=580177287432&ha sh=item41707419de

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Crocs-Mens-L...item4ac7318ac1

So, there should be plenty there to choose from with pretty decent shipping times. I just ordered a pair today.

And I know shoe angst this time around. I had to buy nurse's shoes on ebay for Yuki's schoolboy outfit. UNFORTUNATELY they run small and I broke my big toe last week (perfect timing!) so I won't know if they fit until a week and a half until the con, when it's fully healed. xD So, fingers crossed that once I get this hideous boot off my foot that they're like walking on a cloud.

I think I can allow that! I'd TOTALLY be up for a shot of that! I just hope I don't get stuck in that thing! hehe

Don't you have any sense of shame?! *eye twitch* We should have skinned you for your perversion the first time...

xD LOL!! Now I'm super excited. And I love you people already.

I will say with Seki coming I surprised there aren't 1000 Kyos. Just the one so far. xD I expected a flood of them with his Japanese voice actor coming. But, Seki did so many characters, perhaps he'll get lots from his other shows.

Isn't Ritsu's english va coming as well? One of the English ones is I recall. Either way, I'm psyched. You guys make me happy!

Just because they don't have an account on here doesn't mean that they won't show up at con. And when you find them, drag them to our gathering XD

Yup, Mike McFarland is going to be there. And of course, Ritsu isn't anywhere on the box/dvd covers TT___TT

Ahh I hope there are tons of Kyos! That would make my job as a Tohru cosplayer a lot more fun, hehe. If I see any Furuba Cosplayers that weren't on this thread I'll force them to come to the gathering >

Hey, why not list all of the people cosplaying for the shoot? It'd be good to know who's doing who at a glance. Just a thought. hehe

Good idea. I put it on the first post in this thread so people could see it when they clicked on the link. I'll update it as necessary. ^_^

So, as of current ( schedule is probably liable to change. And the site is currently down ) Seki is signing on Friday at 5 and Saturday at 10 AM ( CRAZY early >_> ) It is with great displeasure that I announce that I will not be able to attend the gathering on Saturday because I will probably be camping out for Shinichiro Watanabe. HOWEVER, I might just be walking around as schoolboy Kyo Sohma ( going to see Kyo's seiyuu. Cosplaying Kyo. Makes sense right XD ) for a bit Saturday morning.
