Harry Potter was awesome!
I wish I could have dressed up, but my friends demanded that I leave to go wait in line right after my shift at work ended!

But, as God as my witness, I will never miss another costume experience like this again! (anyone remember this movie? BD )

I hope my wig shows up in the mail It's been nearly a month due to the mail strike but almost all of my other mail has arrived by now.

The wig isn't for anything in particular but I'm worried it's gotten lost.

Dang gurl, you buy wigs without a specific use in mind?

JUST THIS ONE. IT WAS PRETTY

I do have ideas for it though, but they'd be more of an original thing than a specific character.

Had a dream in which I decided my next cosplay would be senile, old Link. So odd, since I've never had the desire to cosplay as Link. It was pretty amusing.

I have so many wigs saved in my watch list for this reason alone. xD

Ahhhh con tomorrow!

I made my new contact cards, and I'm really happy with how they came out. I'm glad I decided to scour Flickr for more images of my costumes, because I found some really pretty ones of my LION Sheryl. *u* Now going to hunt for some of Yoko~

Wow, your contact cards are a lot nicer than mine.

Very simple and made in less than a day...

I have never made a cosplay card...
If you do have them, do you give them out to people who take your picture, or just friends you met at the convention?

Both actually. Though, not so much for photographers, except if its one of those photographers who look like they're shooting for a publication or doing photoshoot.

Though, I did hand them out to those who attended a photoshoot I had so that they could contact me for their pictures. I made 60 cards last time.

Made my cards on the assumption they'd picture it on their phones and toss it.

I handed mine out to those semi-serious looking photographers. The ones with SLR's that ask you to pose and take 10+ pictures, since I wanted to see copies of them. I didn't bother handing them out to everyone who took pictures, but it's up to you.

I also meet a lot of people at random and start up conversations with them, (In line for autographs or just waiting around.) If they seemed nice I would write my facebook address on the back and give it to them, that way we could keep in touch later on :3

These are amazing!!! So pretty!
I've never actually heard of someone using contact cards in the Western Hemisphere! Are these just on printer paper?


And another question! Is it common for people to set up alternate face book accounts for their cosplay alter ego?

I'm totally DEAD SET on doing a skit at NYAF/NYCC this year. I have a basic idea for a skit, but i"m not sure if it'll work out...but I would REALLY like to do it. It won't be just a dance skit, but it won't be just dialogue. I really want to do a Yumeiro Patissiere skit, but I can't think of a complicated outfit of Ichigo's that ISN'T the giant pink dress that I really want to make...and I'm a journeyman now, so I don't want something too simple, even though I'm putting more effort into the performance section rather than craftsmanship right now.
I did do a little looking around, and this looks like something that isn't TOO too complicated OR too simple. I mean....uhh...Yumeiro Patissiere isn't that popular anyway, so it's not like that many people would recognize it.

Edit: @Pudding- I don't know if I would call it common, but it works out really well for ME at least.
