    Got some more progress!!!! Eek only a week away, so excited. I need hair extensions though. My recent hair trim made my hair too thin in the front to do the wraps Princess Zelda has.

    Looks awesome!

    Here's a sneak peak of the back detail on my cosplay. The front isn't totally done yet, and buttons still need to be sewn on. Unfortunately, it looks like I won't have any guns, but it should work out regardless.

    Being both extremely busy and extremely broke, I'm just going to be reusing two older costumes, Naoto from Persona 4 and Spades Slick from Homestuck (yes, I like things with large and obnoxious fandoms, I'm sorry). I haven't decided which I'm wearing on which day yet, although I'm pretty definitely not going to be wearing a costume on Sunday--usually by that point I'm more or less a zombie and no longer able to cope with fancy clothes and makeup and wigs.

    Anyone thinking of doing a cosplay meetup for either of those things? I'd love to get in on it if so.

Import fatal fury special neogeo cart to weat around my neck and some snk pins and t-shirts. Saturday I will be akuma either a slight varation on him or corporate akuma in a nice suit.

    JEANNE!

    I'm a lousy person and still need to finish Bayonetta, but I'm a big fan.

    I love how you did the cuffs and collar!

    I hope to run into you for a pic!

    I've never been to PAX before. I usually haunt Anime Conventions. Is there any costume contests at PAX?

    Wanted to also ask. I was supposed to be Triana Venture on Friday, but my 21 & 24 friends dropped out. So now I have no planned cosplay for Friday. The only non-anime cosplay I have up and running is Xena Warrior Princess. Would Xena be appreciated at PAX or because it’s not a game character would people be like WTF?

    Thoughts....

    There were plenty of non video game characters at Prime. I don't think it will be a problem.

  • JerYnkFanJerYnkFan Registered User regular
    Xena sounds pretty cool. I am dressing in my Star Trek: TOS uniform on Saturday which while technicially is in STO isn't considered a game costume. Costumers/Cosplayers are a pretty tolerant group. Heck I saw a guy dress in a Star Trek TNG costume at Star Wars Celebration V.

    Not cosplaying but I'll be taking a load of pictures. Look for the dude with the huge tupperware-like diffuser on his flash. Won't be hard to miss. If I take your picture, just PM me after the show. I'll keep a link to my flickr in my signature as well.

  • Well if Trekies and Fanboys can get along then Xena should be no problem. I just tried her on though and i need to take her in a bit. I won't have my chakrum also since its being professionally made.

  • GrimRupertGrimRupert Registered User regular
    PAX is a large enough consortium of nerds all ages that I don't think anyone cares what you cosplay as (within reason).

    Otherwise people wouldn't keep getting psyched to see Ghost Busters cosplay all the time.

    Tron Legacy themed costumes from Legend of Zelda. Link and a Gerudo. Pics coming soon. Anyone else doing mashup stuff?

    Me and my friend originally were supposed to go as kirk and a sith lord walking side by side. I couldn't get a tribble or a nice authentic looking TOS article of clothing in time. I wanted to work some James T. Kirk magic on the green woman attending.

  • Does anyone know if there are any photographers going so i can schedule a photoshoot ?

    Promised some people quite some time ago that I'd post the progress on my Protoman outfit. Gradschool has left me with less time than I'd care for, but It's on route to being finished on time, so expect the finished version at PAX.

    Finally finished fixing my Dragon Age armor. Last year I went to Anime Boston instead of PAX due to a work schedule. This is what I wore then, and what I will be wearing Friday.
    Spoiler:

    I'm still working on my Skyrim armor, hopefully it will be done in time.

    The top one will be hanging from my front and the bottom one will be readable from behind me. Pretty happy with how it turned out, other than the accursed e's.

    Hey, if we meet, you know it'll be a battle between the Sons of Fate. I just hope we don't destroy a large hunk of the con in the process.

    I can't see us NOT meeting, since I have the feeling us Protomen fans are going to form a gigantic knot of slightly rabid awesome at the front of the concert line on Friday ;)

    And eh, if anything gets destroyed, it'll be because of the POWER OF ROCK. So, a win. for everyone.

  • MissMoogleMissMoogle Registered User regular
    First of all, you all look lovely! Can't wait to hunt you down for photos ^_^

    But secondly and most importantly: have we decided on a cosplayers meet up for Friday? We discussed it earlier in this thread, but I think we need a definite time and place now that we have both a map and a schedule. We don't have to do anything extreme or special, but I think its important we all get together on the first day for photos and such!

    I think we discussed meeting on Friday around 12:30-1PM? Does that conflict with any major panel or event that people will be going to? It won't be more then half an hour. And what do you all think about meeting right near the main entrance lobby area?

    Give me your feedback so we can set it in stone! Once we have it all figured out I can make a FB group so I can send everyone updates

    So....freakin....EXCITED!!! :D
