Thanks for the help I recieved with this costume, limegreenjelly for the jacket and demented kid for the wig
I plan to finish off the detail on the trousers soon and attach the top of the armour to the trousers,finish the sword and do the gloves

I wouldn't worry about it too much,someone always organises one for all the games and it usually changes times constantly right up until the week of Expo.

ah well I spent the entire Sunday morning working on the costume and then by the time I got to Expo it was 2.30, then after a FFXII photoshoot round the side of Excel I disapeared backstage to queue for the masquerade.Not many people saw me unless they watched the masquerade.
