With the purchase of badges, I'm sure many of us are starting to work on our cosplays, or at least start budgeting money for a new one after spending so much on tickets and hotel rooms.
This thread isn't just for announcing your cosplays, but also for discussion - maybe you need to find some images for your cosplay or need help with a prop, etc. We can all help each other and make EVEN BETTER COSPLAYS!
My personal plan at the moment is to tryyyy to finish my Leonardo Da Vinci (from AC2) and start&complete The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3 in her white catsuit. I know it's going to be a challenge, but I have a lot of ideas on how to go about it. I'm also considering trying to roll my cosplay into something that can work as a gym leader for the PAX Pokemon League.
What are you guys up to?!
EDIT: Some cosplay tips from yours truly. I'll also add any other general advice people give on the thread to this first post so you don't have to got through the whole thread!General tips for cosplaying at PAX East:
-If this is your first PAX East, first time cosplaying, or even your first con, I highly suggest cosplaying Saturday only!!! You WILL be walking about two miles a day in the convention hall alone, it is THAT BIG. So save yourself the burnout(and stress!) and cosplay only on Saturday.
-Water and snacks are important, especially if you don't want to pay the high prices on meh food(Their seafood is really good though so).
-If you're insane like me and want to cosplay all the days, still bring a change of regular clothes for each day. That way you can go back and change to relax. if you have to take a shuttle to your hotel, it might be worth it to bring something to store your cosplay it and check it in at bag check after changing at the convention (Unverified, I've never tried this before).
-For multiple cosplays, save your most comfortable one for last. In some cases, you can modify or omit pieces of a crazy cosplay to make it more casual (IE wearing an Asari headpiece and makeup but wearing an n7 hoodie)
