    Here is my costume. I should have gone with a lighter pink but, there really wasn't anything I could do about it once I got started. Oh well. It's my first time doing this so I'm not too worried about it. My husband's hoodie will look better.

    These costumes are all so freaking amazing! Very impressive! I wish I was crafty enough to be able to put something together. I'm usually lucky if I'm wearing two socks that are the same color :) This is my first PAX East so I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures and inspiration from all you amazing people!

    So I failed to plan and planned to fail this year with my first PAX. Totally wanted to rock American McGee's Alice old school style or even the Siren costume but that went belly up. Thus, I'll probably be running around as Nakano Azusa from K-ON! on Sunday and just go between Anime Boston & PAX in the same gear.

    Me and my friend costume are almost complete now, I won't post pictures yet to not spoil them but we are really happy with them. Just missing one piece but ordered it, hopefully it get to my Kinek point before I cross the border. We are crossing on the 5th and they say shipping will get there between the 3rd and the 6th...

    My Aela the Huntress (Skyrim) costume is complete! Here's a sneak peak of the costume:

    I'll be going with a Nightingale (Skyrim) on Friday, so be sure to look for us!

    My Gears of War armor is also coming along, getting down to the wire with PAX only two weeks away. I'll post some pictures once it's finished!

    Looking good, LadySniper. You actually bear some resemblance to the character you are doing, which is a plus.

    Finally got around to finishing my Commissar outfit today:
    Spoiler:
    yes, that's a nerf gun. the guts are removed though, so it can't fire. My understanding is that's ok?

    Oh, actually that's not okay. =/ No nerf guns whatsoever. Otherwise your costume looks fantastic!

    @RainbowTunnel you're incorrect. Deactivated nerf guns are fine, if you can prove the deactivation. It's been specifically OK'd by @Tango, he just mentioned that you may be asked to show that it's deactivated.. The "no of this whatsoever" is airsoft.

    Just a question: I'm thinking about buying an old flashlight as a prop. It's one of those old-school Fulton ones. Is it considered a weapon?

    At any rate, my fedora has yet to arrive.

    It's probably fine. You could PM @Tango to find out for sure.

    @Thin Red Paste - your de-ac Nerf is fine, just be aware it might get checked a few times a day! (But that just lets you show it off, right?)

    @XX55XX - Observe the weapons policy. Pay attention to the one about bludgeoning. If it's a big, heavy "giant D-cell Maglite" type that has a secondary use as an impact weapon, it's not okay. Otherwise, it should be fine. :)

    As I said, can't wait to see all these costumes!

    If anyone is going to East as Carl Brutanunanulewski, make sure to remind anyone with Patriots gear on that the Giants won! The Giants won! The Giants won!

    Joking aside, the best piece of advice I ever got for cosplay is: Your costume should match your physique. Being fat and willing to part with my hair, I've been Carl at Prime for the last two years. I can't make it to East, but I'll leave some character-specific wisdom here: Bring a pair of real shoes in addition to the flip flops; you'll want something comfortable when you're not in costume. Also, you'll want to stretch your calf muscles real well before walking the many miles of PAX in flip flops... this burned me at Prime '10. (Hell, stretching is good advice for everybody. Everyone will be doing a LOT of walking!) Costume-store fake gold chains will tarnish pretty quickly - the miles of walking will work up a sweat - bring spares or go with plastic. And if possible, grow a natural mustache. Fakes fall off, and besides, rockin' the stash is friggin awesome! :)

    Does that same guy go to Prime also? If so, I met that guy and he's cool as f___. Best Carl ever.

    Thank you TOG! You're cool as hell too!

    My Chrono Trigger group is just about done with our costumes! We'll be traipsing about on Friday, looking silly.

    Here's a sneak peek of my Sheik, which is also nearing completion:

    Finished the Medigun over the weekend, soldered all the connections, delicately crammed the machinery down the gun's throat with a dowel... then a contact broke somewhere and the light stopped working. So I pulled the light out, rewired it, triple-checked the connection, recrammed everything, and promptly dropped the trigger lever on the button, smashing it. Luckily I found the exact same button in Radio Shack (which is great, because my dad had bought the original one probably before I was born). It works now, and I'm decorating it.

    I need a haircut anyway, so maybe I'll bring a picture of the Medic to my barber and say "just do this".

    Seconded. I actually chose last year's costume precisely because I had a mustache at the time.

    Probably both days. If not, definitely Saturday. (As long as they don't change the concert line-ups any more. I want to make sure I'm Marle on VGO night.) I'm playing with the idea of Pink Power Rangering it up on Friday.

    hey rainbowtunnel - any way you can add me to the OP? I think somehow my Faith Connors from mirror's edge failed to make the list.

    also, there will be a couple others in my group cosplaying. we will definitely have a robin from arkham asylum, an archer and lana from archer, and possibly (this one is not confirmed) a steampunk peach.

    I would recommend going to Sally's Beauty and seeing if they have loose hair extensions in a color close to your own hair. They're not too expensive, and I've used them while cosplaying if I need a long ponytail in my natural hair color. If they do have them, buy the extensions and some hair extension clips (they look like little combs). Attach the extensions to the combs either by hand stitching or with hot glue. Then wrap with ribbon or whatever you're using, and clip into your hair. I hope this helps :)

    Hey there it's been a while since I posted so I thought I'd give an update

    so I'm not gonna be cosplaying Miror B this year because due to real life I wasn't able to finish the outfit (and I don't think I have the drive to work on it this week to finish). I considered trying to rush it last minute, but I figured I'd probably wear it on Friday, where most of my exhibit hall wandering time will be, and a huge afro (making it out of a big foam ball) would be very inconvenient for walking around that huge crowded space.
    So sadly, no one will be graced with the presence of the pokedisco dancing freak. (though if you go to CTCon or AAC I'll probably have it at at least one of those)
    as for my cosplay that I'm still doing I'll still be bringing Silver of course (The rival from the pokemon gold, silver, crystal, hg, and ss games)

    Without Miror B I'm either gonna be Zoey from Left 4 Dead of friday or sunday, or I'm gonna just sport my wooper hoodie I have so I'll sorta be cosplaying wooper.
    I may do both doing one of friday one on sunday.
    I'll definitely be silver on Saturday, and then maybe sunday, though if not it will be one of the two stated above.

    Link to Picture

    That's my Silver cosplay and I can't wait to see all of the wonderful cosplays at PAX :D
