'18 cosplayers

Who is dressing up and what are peeps wearing??

I'll only be attending fri, and sat. So far I am putting together a quick retro swing style dress in vault suit colors to have something comfy to wear.

Still unsure if I want to bring something the other day I go.

    I'll be attending Saturday and Sunday (maybe Monday?) dressed as Ada from RE2, with my spouse who will be Leon Kennedy. I've used the costume before, but this is the year I think we've finally nailed all aspects of it (shoes, hair, makeup, all the excruciating little details that go into really good cosplay). I have spray painted fake bullets and glued them into my holster. I have gotten over my fear of stabbing myself in the eye so I can wear contacts and actually see what's going on. I have practiced walking around in Ada's ridiculous high heels so I can race everyone else to the RE2 demo station. MY TIME HAS COME


    (I may or may not have waited 3 years for this)

    Working on my first cosplay. Super nervous...so I will only be wearing it one day, Saturday. I'll be going as Michonne from TWD.

    Question! We're looking at having a prop that generates "steam" aka heated glycerin clouds aka vape pen. It's not truly a vape as it will be pure glycerin more akin to a fog machine. Does anyone think we'll have a problem with this?

    I'm in no way official, but I would say yah...If it's smoking inside, I think they will dislike that. Not to say you can't have it work outside, there's a great spot people use for photos, but in the con? I would bet no...

    Yeah...we don't even allow panelists to use fog machines after the '15 PAX Royal Rumble caused the entire Grand Hyatt to be evacuated for 20 minutes. Plus, vaping is not allowed inside the WSCC (and probably not any of the other buildings we use), so I'd say that's very much a no-go.

    Is it PAX <insert nearest future PAX here> yet?

    I'm going all 4 days but am mostly going to be re-wearing stuff from past cons. I've been too busy with other events and buying a condo and getting engaged to worry about building something new.

    I'm bringing Table Tennis (Summer Games Spray) Mei from Overwatch, Shy Gal, and probably my frog kigurumi for the last day as usual, unless I just go in casual nerd-wear. Assuming the pieces from Amazon come in on time I'll be doing (spoilers?) New Donk City Peach from Mario Odyssey, but a lot of it's shipping from China and has an arrival window of about a month so she might not actually happen.

    As for days, I'd planned on doing Mei whenever the OW group was going to happen but that FB event recently got cancelled so...who knows. Hit me up if you're doing anything OW or Nintendo.

    I'll speak for my non-forum friends in case anyone is trying to round up people for group stuff. My fiance may be wearing my Sans from Undertale at least one day since he doesn't have much else ready to go. He's also thinking of whipping together a Hollow Knight cosplay since it wouldn't take much more than the mask. Another friend is bringing his usual Ryu from Street Fighter and now has a few alt costumes for him. Another will be doing Eevee from Pokemon and may have her husband do the new trainer from Let's Go! Eevee with her.

    Yeah, kinda figured. What about a non-glycerin solution like an [url="https://www.amazon.com/AGPtek®-Changing-Fountain-Atomizer-Humidifier/dp/B00GSKCW70/"]ultrasonic water vaporizer[/url]?

    I would REALLY err on side of caution. Don’t use it inside. You don’t want to be that guy.

    I don't think it matters what the solution is. I know there's a Sub Zero cosplayer I've seen a few years that has a vaporizing mask that isn't supposed to use it indoors. Anything that looks like smoke/vapor is probably going to be a no-go just on a "better safe than sorry" basis for the convention center. They don't want to risk people accidentally starting fires, or making others sick with the smell/residue, so it's likely just a blanket ban.

    The safest way to get an indoor-friendly effect is light fabric and a fan, same as anyone doing indoor moving "fire."

    Weird curious question - Does anyone have any cosplays that can be borrowed to wear? Is that weird to ask? Can I google rent a cosplay?!

    5'5 lean frame for reference. Is there such a thing? I'd love to cosplay but am bad with home ecs and laziness. :O

    Rent a cosplay really isn’t a thing. Most people who have cosplay either made it themselves or purchased. If the former, it likely cost an insane amount of time and resources, and also is probably fit to the wearer. If it’s bought, it wasn’t cheap. Have you considered a closet cosplay? That is, a character that could be made from pieces of clothing you own (or could double as regular things in your wardrobe).

    My Dipper, for example, is all stuff I already had. While I made he Bill Cipher animatronic, the clothes I’m wearing are all pretty basic (grey shorts, red T, blue puffy vest, and the official GF hat which you can grab on Amazon). And still, I know my costume is instantly recognizeable even if I didn’t have any props. Rick from Rick and Morty is also easy to do from found clothes, plus a blue wig and a lab coat.

    Edit: if you’re a Gravity Falls fan I could probably help you throw together Robbie or Wendy if you wanted to cosplay together. Controlling the Cipher animatronic takes two people and I’d gladly trade some help for cosplay stuff.

    I appreciate it and I know you need help with the controlling. I can't give ya a bunch of time as I'm Omeganaut but if you want for a couple hours on one of the days, I don't mind helping out.

    It's probably gonna be hard to find help so maybe if a few of us pitch in for a couple hours on the day you wear it?

    Let me know!

    I’m also going to be wearing my first cosplay! Going as Shani from the Witcher series:

    Haven’t decided what day I’m wearing it yet, but I’ll be at the convention all four days. I'm the biggest introvert ever, so kind of nervous, but excited to show off my hard work too!

    I'm making a sword using 3-D printing right now, if I use a threaded steel rod in the interior as the stabilizing core, will I get reprimanded, or will it be fine as long as I'm not brandishing it and have it peace bonded? The entirety of the sword will be painted PLA, just a thin steel rod glues in the interior.

  • CharmingDevilCharmingDevil Token Awkward Muffin Graham, WashingtonRegistered User regular
    I'm probably just gonna rewear some older cosplays this year but I still can't decide who to wear. I'm going Sat and Sun. Thinking Tifa and/or Red XIII from FFVII, Ashley from Until Dawn, or Bendy from Bendy and the Ink Machine. I really wanted to wear Jace again this year but I think I'm gonna upgrade him quite a bit first. I was also thinking cosplaying my character from The Secret World but most likely won't be recognized.
