still alive? [25 Aug 2010|11:50pm]

Is this community still watched by anyone?  I don't believe there has been an active post in a very long time.  Have people simply migrated away to other social networking sites, like facebook?

For those who are still around, what costumes are you currently working on?  And are you planning to attend Youmacon in October?

I'm currently finishing up my Eureka (Eureka 7) costume and my original EGL outfit.  I'm debating on whether doing a half-and-half job for Sora, from Kaleido Star.   And, as always, my Marie Antoinette (Rose of Versailles) could still use some work.  I'm so lazy when it comes to actually finishing that costume! *laughs*

novi, motorcity con [15 May 2008|05:10pm]

Anyone else hitting the Motorcity convention in Novi, mi? I'll be there as Kyouya Ohtori from Ouran Host Club on Saturday (morning until ?) If anyone would like my hosting services let me know. I think there could be some merit in it... *makes notes on clipboard*

hehe but really, if anyone cares to meet up it could be fun, whether you plan to cosplay or not.

Youmacon? [01 Apr 2008|09:06pm]

[ mood | sleepy ]

i was wondering who is going to this year's youmacon. i'm pretty sure it's taking place on halloween this time around. i've never been to a con before and i'm not sure if i'll ever get to. :/ my parents are weirded out by the fact i enjoy anime/manga and don't really understand why i would ever want to attend a con. i bring it up every now and then, but they usually say, "i don't have an answer for you right now." geeze... i wanted to know how old you were when you attended your first con, which one it was, how it went, how the hotel thinger worked out (did you room with online friends? if so, how on earth did you convince your parents to let you? :/)... i also would like to know if there are any other events or shopping centers around the con site for my mom to check out. i doubt she would want to hang out with sugar high otakus for three days.

ALSO.. i want to cosplay, but i've never sewed before. i'm thinking of doing L from death note because the costume seems pretty easy. white longsleeve shirt, sort of baggyish... loose jeans... no shoes... but the hair i'm concerned about. :/ i have no knowledge on wig styling and i'm a bit nervous about ruining the wig! (which i hear are expensive...)

soum... maybe someone who's a veteran con-goer could be my buddy? kukuku if you think you can handle it!
(i don't bite lol... i just need some questions answered/guidance with cosplay.)

HEY IKASUCON PEOPLE! [30 Jun 2006|11:39am]

Yep, as the title says, this is mostly directed towards anyone going to Ikasucon.

I'm hosting the Fullmetal Alchemist Panel on Friday from 7-9 (as far as I know I still have this block. -crosses fingers-) and have decided to do something a little extra.
As you all should know by now, I'm not cosplaying Movie Ed anymore. A friend of mine (Kyo) suggested that I auction the costume off.
And that is just what I've decided to do.

So, the costume, suitcase and all (Jacket, vest, pants, shirt, shoes, armband, notebook, and all) will be auctioned off at the panel on Friday. ^_^;;
Umm..so...if you all wouldn't mind..spread the word! Tell anyone that you think may interested that is going!! The costume needs a good home. I love the thing dearly and want to see it go into good hands. ^___^

That is all. DUN DUN!

I hope to see you all there.

acen is RIGHT around the corner (we're so close that the staff has already released the schedule! i didn't realize they were showing howl's moving castle :O ), and i was wondering if anyone was up for a michigan cosplayers photoshoot? it was mentioned briefly on the boards, but there didn't seem to be a lot of response, so i thought i'd ask here. ^^;

Cosplay at the Zoo [24 Apr 2006|05:47pm]

[ mood | busy ]

I was thinking today and I came up with an idea that I want to try and put into action.

For awhile now I've wanted to do something really big to help out
Image hosting by Photobucket
but I really couldn't think of what to do.
Then I came up with an idea.

I was talking to cloud_sama last night and she mentioned a Cosplay Picnic that they did. That got me thinking.
How cool would it be to cosplay at the zoo?
Then, that turned into 'how cool would it be if we cosplayed at the zoo and help out the charity at the same time?'

There is still a lot of stuff that has to go into putting this project together.
I need to get in touch with the Detroit Zoo and see if they'd be up to handling a mass of cosplayers and what they could possibly do to help us.
But first and foremost, I just wanted opinions.

How was I thinking of raising money?
Well, like I said, I need to talk to the Zoo first and see what they'd be willing to do as far as admissions go.
But I was thinking, cosplay auction, if any artists would be willing to donate pieces, etc etc. There is a LARGE mass of things that could go into this.

My question is though:
How many people would be interested in it?
I know Detroit is probably pretty damn far from a lot of you, but I still wanted to see. Depending on the response I get, I'll then take this to the Zoo.

^_^ Just wanted to see what people thought. I really want to give this a shot though.

comm maintenance [02 Mar 2006|07:20pm]

[ mood | nerdy ]

just doing some regular comm maintenance, noticing there are a couple of new members to our group here, so i added them to our sidebar, and made the usernames in the sidebar a little easier to read. ^^ if anyone wants any changes made, either to their name/journal listing or to the comm in general, let me know by either commenting or emailing me (selaphri at gmail), even if it's really small like changing syntax or capitalization of the name.

to anyone who doesn't regularly visit the boards at cosplay.com, it's really short notice, but a bunch of us are going ice skating on sunday at the troy sports center! details are in this thread.

...so....... what cosplays is everyone working on now? ^^ (i can't figure out how to conjugate that sentence properly T_T i suck at the english language and it's my first language!)
