Data Drain!: .hack//2014

Hey guys! Since I am not going to rest until I finish my BlackRose cosplay for this coming Otakon, I was wondering if there are any fellow .hackers going? I'd love to do a meetup/photoshoot, since I know there are still some of us out there. (Not to mention, 2014 is when the .hack//Udeden manga takes place so if we follow the timeline...:P)
Anyway, feel free to post here with your cosplay/what day you're planning for so we can hopefully get something organized! I'll probably be BlackRose most of Saturday, but it's up in the air right now.

Looking forward to it!

Come on, I know there are .hack people out there. (Just pushing this up so it won't get deleted.) I'm thinking of having the meetup on Saturday, if anyone's interested, since that seems to be the most popular day for .hack every year.

Ahhh you're making Black Rose? ;-; It's my dream to cosplay Mimiru but I don't know the first thing about making cosplays. OTL Any tips? How are you tackling this @.@

But .hack cosplayers make me so happy! ^^

Oh gosh I'd love to see a Mimiru, especially as BlackRose! Armor isn't too tricky to make, from what I've read and the small tests I've done. I'm making the base of mine out of craft foam (or worbla/wonderflex, depending on how well I want it to hold up) using techniques from this tutorial (http://entropyhouse.com/penwiper/cos...elmsdeep.html). After the basic construction is finished and everything is attached via buckles and such, I'm planning on detailing with paperclay, painting it, and coating it in gesso to finish. There are a lot of armormaking tutorials out there, depending on what you want to make it out of! I hope I helped at least a little. ^^; Hope I see you there!

Yeah I've looked up several armor tutorials and stuff but they all seem so advanced haha. I was considering using a ton of craft foam over a strapless bra base and see where that takes me...u___u maybe I'll give it a shot ;^;

I'm hoping to have Atoli by then! That is, if I can order her for it.

If you want to a do a Saturday photo shoot though, I suggest setting a time and place now so if you want a good spot you can get it.

Sweet! Hope to see you there! ^_^

@Lemon-Squeezy - Good idea. I'll see what's up in terms of organizing something. Would anyone be opposed to Saturday by the indoor fountains at 1 PM? That seems like a good time for .hack stuff in the past, but we can work something out if that's not okay for anyone.

EDIT: I asked the meetup to be added to the (un)official gathering list, so we're tentatively at 1 PM by the indoor fountains on Saturday. For now. I can definitely change it though, if someone needs me to.

Me and some friends of mine would love to do this! I already have a Mimiru Cosplay done!! I want to a Black Rose too! I don't helping with organizing this with you! I think we should make an open group page/ event page on Facebook to reach more people! This site is pretty hard to navigate.

Awesome! Hope to see you guys there! I'll make a facebook group right now for it, since that does seem like the best option outside of Coscom.

EDIT: Facebook group has been made! I'll link everyone when I get home and off of mobile.

I made my Mimiru armor using worbla with craft foam. Worbla is a pretty expensive material but the results are great! It'll be a little difficult your first time. You're more then welcome to PM me if you need need and tips or guide!

The more research I've done on making my BlackRose armor, the more convinced I am that craft foam and Worbla is the right combo. That's what I'll be using, and praying it works! XD I'd recommend paperclay, too, for adding details. It sticks to most stuff, and is sandable and paintable.

(Also, I realized just now that I saw you at Katsu as Mimiru. Your armor was great!)

Also, the link to the facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/361509220657506/
It's closed right now, but send a join request and I'll add you in!
