Yay for having Hellsing costumes all three days! I will be also wearing three different Hellsing costumes! Manga Integra, battle Inetgra (OVA vol.1), and most likely my ANBU Sakura!

Our XXXholic group plan on being in the masq! We got a killer skit to! ^_^ but they don't have the rules up yet so we don't know how much time we will get, and other stuff. Anyone know the rules from last year? Or have the inside scoop for this years rules?

This years rules will most likely be like the last two years, you get up to 2 1/2 minutes, you have to bring your music on a cd in MP3 format, and you can't have more than 10 people in your group!

One person in the group can do most of the sewing, but it helps if the other help you (hand sewing, props, etc..)! They want at least 80% of your costume hand made, and they will want a reference picture for each character! Infact its better if you make a portfolio of the entire group they love those. Inside would be multiple reference pics of each character from different sides, In-progress pics, and sometime even pictures of the patterns you used and altered! When you go into the judging they love to hear a detailed explanation of how and why you did everything! Hmmmm is there anything else I can help you with!

My group has won best in show for Craftsmanship the past two years... can you tell!?

Our portfolios rock. And basically have a good justification for everything down to why you picked a certain color/type of fabric. It really shows the judges that you put a lot of thought into your work.

Yes! The judges love crazy justification! For example, when my Dad and brother were both cosplaying Walter, yet had different shades of red for their ties(we said it was because the younger walter was more flashy so there fore his tie was a brighter red)! They totally love stuff like that! If you can justify it, they will love you more!

Talking

At banzai I didn't cosplay I did wear a stylized kimono, basicly kimono+Gothic lolita incorporated into it!
My character this year at AV is Yűko! XD OUr group will consist of the characters Kimihiro Watanuki, the spider mistress (manga only), the vestial sprite, and the rain sprite, and maybe another person is coming but were not sure. I'm going in the dress Yűko wears on vol 7 http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/...CLZZZZZZZ_.jpg
It's sooo exciting! I can't wait! What are you going as?
