Costume Information

Purely for two reasons -

1. Retro games DO NOT get cosplayed enough! I have a little nerdgasm whenever i see one xD so im helping to contribute to that! xD

2. A certain someone...SlimDefinition...Would NOT stop asking me to cosplay Axel during numerous conversations at Ayacon! xD

I think....we should get a fake one some time and take a photo of us both looking at it as if to say "wtf!?"
Sounds good. Not sure when I can join you with this, but let me know when you plan to and I'll see as and when I can bring Blaze with me. ;-)

;-) Just say when and I'll see what I can do. I can't make any promises of course, but if I manage to get to register for Kitacon in the next two to three months, I'll take her to that if you want.

Sounds good. Provisional plan then. If I can get myself registered soon, I'll be good to say it's a done deal.

Can't wait to see progress.

The ball is Sunday though, so I understand, and I'm doing Kaname then. :-/
Dilemma! Damn...erm...we need to re-calibrate somehow methinks. I was only going to do Blaze of an evening.

Have you any idea when exactly you want to be doing him at Kita?
I was going to do Blaze on one of the evenings, but if you're doing him during the day time, we may have to bring them out another time...Amecon perhaps (IF I can go).

I'm planning on the sunday day because all my nights are filled so we might have to get together for epic Streets Of Rage 2 times at another event =/

although if you wanted to do a little shoot it would be a simply enough cosplay to slip back into one of the nights possibly

Well, if I take her I may do her Friday night and/or Sunday after the ball as I heard there's another party after the ball usually.
Other than that, another time certainly. ;-)

Gloves found (Posted 16th September 2011)

These will probably be the gloves i'll get eventually, i'll need to unpick the labels on it and also sew some red fabric over the main knuckle part to cover the company name but i think they will look the part!
