    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

    I'd be at Boston8Bit at that time. I also think one day is kind of inadequate since there are people who are going to be switching costumes from day to day. I know I'm considering doing different things on different days now. I personally think if people are going to be meeting near the main entrance/ lobby why not meet in the mornings around the queue area, that way it doesn't interfere with the panels people want to go to? There probably isn't going to be something that will uniformly work for everyone during the day/ weekend.

    Good idea? Each morning we can meet in the main Lobby. That way everyone should be able to make at least one day.

    That would work better for me as I am only costuming on Saturday.

    I meant to put am exclamation point on that"Good Idea" lols, silly phone.
    I know that I'm prouder of my Spartan cosplay than any of the others I made. The ME ones are cool. But I put the most work into the Spartan one, and will be wearing it saturday.

    If we had a pick one day, I'd say go with Saturday - that's generally when people bring out their most intense costumes and more people choose to cosplay. And, in general, Friday seems a bit more panel-heavy (although that might just be my personal interests).

    I'm wearing different costumes on Friday and Saturday, and would love to meet up either/both days. 1:00 works for me on Friday (PA Q&A goes until 12:30), and anywhere 12:30 to 2:00 is fine on Saturday.

    So it looks like we have people who want to meet either in the morning or anywhere from 12:30-2. Mid day doesn't work for me because I have things I want to be doing.

    I won't be there on Friday or Sunday, but I finally got my fedora in the mail. It fits well on my head and I got rid of the ridiculous feather that came with it.

    Cole Phelps will be looking sharp on Saturday.

    Is anyone interested in a Saturday cosplay meetup?

  • RegimentRegiment Registered User regular
    I'd like to do a meetup on any day. Saturday would be best, honestly, but I couldn't say exactly when.

    Update: The Medigun is done and functional; the backpack is 95% done and needs to be attached to the suspenders; the coat is 95% done.

    I'll be Coming as Batman on Saturday and I'll have my 12 year old cousin with me dressed as Robin (Tim Drake). My buddy will also be dressed as Nightwing and his girlfriend is coming as Catwoman.

  • girlgamer88girlgamer88 Registered User regular
    There's still panels and other things after 6 though (concerts). Trading card meet ups are at 6:30 at the Westin and those should not be interfered with. What about around 5 pm? I still think the morning would be easier because there are things going on at different times that people are going to want to go to.

    Saturday works best for me. There aren't any panels/concerts I'm wanting to go to. Anytime works for me. I can peel myself away from the Expo hall morn/noon/eve.

    Speaking from experience, with large groups like this mornings usually work best.

    holy crap that is awesome! where were those taken??

    also, I did a test run of my mirror's edge tattoo this weekend:
    36801e5a7ad211e1989612313815112c_7.jpg

    verdict: pretty good, although a little shiny and too small. I'll print it on two sheets for PAX and that way it will be bigger. also plan to try covering it with makeup powder to decrease the shine.

    great suggestion though on the make your own tattoo paper. will save me tons of time not to have to draw it!!

    Ignore this, read my response a couple comments down

    Alright so lets put it in stone!

    12:30 in the lobby (near the main entrance) You'll know where to go if you just look for the people in costume!

    I would still like to get an idea of how many people are going to meet for this, so please reply in this thread to confirm you will come by for photos and fun! :D

    Remember, there are no requirements for what kind of costume you wear, this meet up is for everyone and anyone who is cosplaying on Friday!!!

    browncoatbeth that looks really slick! Do all the improvements you feel like, but even as-is I'm sure you'll get lots of compliments.

  • MissMoogleMissMoogle Registered User regular
    Awe geez, hold up, I didn't see some of these responses lol.

    Someone get a new chisel and remove what I wrote in stone!

    I agree that we should meet on both Friday and Saturday. But I see there's a lot of back and forth on the time...
    How about we meet first thing on Friday and then figure it out from there?


    So 10AM on Friday right by the entrance. And if people would still like to meet at 12:30, I can be there :D

    Sorry for the confusion, I am just a ball of excitement/overwhelmed-ness

    I still really want to meet on Friday. I posted this very early on in this thread because I feel like it will make people more comfortable to know right off the bat that there are other cosplayers to meet and share their experience with! And like I said before, I would really like to get a number of how many people are interested in this because I don't want to stand there waiting for people if only 5 show up lol.

    There are a number of cosplaying events happening this year that have to do with specific studios/games, but I want to give people who do not fall into those categories a place to meet up and shine! There are always awesome cosplays at PAX who don't fit the mold, and this will be your opportunity to show off your craftsmanship, and get some photos!

    Holy hell girl. That looks amazing!
    I agree with the two sheets to make it bigger, and the make-up powder to decrease shine. You've thought of everything!
    How well does it move with you arm movements/ does it buckle/crack?

    Friday around 10am is better for me. I have no plans until 1ish.
    *thumbs up*
    I'm game for a Saturday meetup too.

    Yeah, I'd like for there to be a meetup on Saturday as well; I don't know how early I'm going to be able to get to the con on Friday, so I might miss that one, and given that Friday is a weekday, I imagine I'm not the only one with that problem.

  • BonniesBonnies Registered User regular
    Hi MissMoogle, count me in on Friday. I should be able to make it to Saturday meet as well. Would be nice to meet a little earlier on Sat cause there's are events I don't wanna miss.

  • aikoeaikoe Registered User regular
    TBH 10 on Friday is probably not the best idea. The keynote starts at 10:30. :|

    It doesn't crack, but it does make it a LOT easier to tell it's fake. I'll have to remember to keep it straight for pictures!!

    I can't do a meet-up on Friday as I'm only cosplaying saturday, but I'll keep my eyes peeled for a Saturday meet-up. Do we have a twitter hashtag just for cosplay? like #cospax? or #paxplay? or #paxcostumes?

    Well the morning seems to work better, but not 10 because it's too close to the keynote. How early are we willing to get there for the meet ups? I'd have no problem with 9-9:30 but I also don't know who's going to be in a hotel and who will be driving in. As far as a twitter hash tag #paxcosplay or #paxcostumes would be my vote.

    Question for those of you who have travelled with your costumes before...

    I have a toy blaster for my power ranger suit. If I put the blaster in my bag that gets checked on the plane... Is that going to be a problem? Should I tell the airline company when I am checking in that it is there?

    And also... Will I have a problem getting trough security with my helmet? I want to carry that on the plane with me.
