Costumes for Animefest:
Rabi~en~Rose: I love this costume too much. I need to wear it again. I think it will be a good Iron Cosplay costume. Besides.. Rabi is ALWAYS a fan favorite. I need to find my Gema.
Noble: As usual, my season J-rock costume as my token J-rock costume. Besides.. this one is a VERY fun costume. (No one will ever know I'm drunk :X )
Dominique the Cyclops: Finally found a trenchcoat. Reasonable price.. more than I wanted to pay, but now I'm desperate to finish this beast. As soon as I finish my mecha eyepatch thing and buy a new dress shirt, the costume is as good as finished. I think maybe I need to find a black bustier, though, because a regular black bra is not quite accurate. Need a black one just like my Rabi bra....
Ragnarok Online female thief: I haven't started this one, but I have all the fabric. I have to do it now, because I've nearly finished N-kun's Mage cloak. Besides.. headgear... T..T
Millenia: This one is definitely getting another wear. I just need to start repairs on both Rabi and Millenia ASAP. I will probably wear this one Sat or Sun. I haven't decided yet. It's a very fun costume, though, and I VERY much look forward to wearing the wig again. Due to my current circumstances at AF, I will not be competing, though. (shikushiku. I need to retire from competative cosplay!)
4 day convention.. 5 costumes... I think that I need more...I need to decide on older ones I may bring with me... I doubt I'll be making another new one, unless it's a closet costume.. because I am already making 5 new costumes for AF if you count the ones I'm doing for N-kun... even though they are all very easy costumes.. but still. (Dominique, female theif, male mage, Zazi the beast.. and probably Bandit King Jing. I bought the yellow for the jacket, but I still need to get HIM to get a wig.. and we need to get vinyl for the belts)
I think.. if I can get N-kun over today to do some reference work on Zazi and fittings done on the mage cloak.. I can probably have his cloak finished today.. and prelim work done on Zazi. And maybe next week, we can get a wig in the works. After seeing Gren's Sora wig, though, I'm seriously thinking about contacting her for commission.. because wigs with spikes scare me.
I know that if I drag an older costume out of the closet it will NOT be: Mana, Machi (Already have Noble.. only wear 1 token J-rock costume per con) Tifa (I don't like it.. and besides.. I'm tearing it apart for the thief costume.. and I'm mailing what's left to Celine eventually) Bloodberry (The harness needs to be remade yet AGAIN.. and I would have no help taping my chest) and most likely not Silky. See... I also try to keep the bulky costumes down per convention. Noble is already pretty bulky just because the costume is huge.. and I can't bring those damned shoulder balls for Silky because I have Millenia to worry about.
So.. I'm thinking maybe Hogwarts Slytherin Prefect (I guess it's a Pansy Parkinson costume now XP Though she's supposed to be quite ugly) That Hogwarts costume.. amazingly.. has had much more repeat wear than most of my other costumes!
I kind of want to bring out Sarasa now that the manga is out in the US.. but I haven't been able to find her cape thingie. (A good thing, IMO, since if I'd found it two days ago, I would have cut it up for the panel I lacked in the male mage cloak) However.. my hair is now impossibly long for Sarasa.. and I really need.. like.. a Tina-Turner poodle wig. Well.. Halloween stuff SHOULD be on the shelves now... hmmmmmm
In any case...
Won't wear my Izawa costume because I wore it last year& got an award with it... Won't wear Kurei (wore last year) but I'll probably try to convince N-kun to wear it.. HEHEHEHEHEHEH
I may wear Babbit.. that was a fun costume XD But I think the mask needs to get repainted.
Can't wear Eboshi, b/c I took the wig down...
Any ideas? requests? Last minute suggestions for a quick costume??
