This year I've decided to only make costumes that I really want to make. It sounds silly but its so easy to fall into the habit of making costumes that you know are popular or feel you should do.

With that in mind I'm going retro and hoping to do both of Celes costumes from FFVI. If I can't complete the opera dress then at least the main in game outfit so I can cosplay with Tak as Setzer. This is something I've really wanted to do since Amecon in 2007 so its time to stop talking and start making!

I'm still trying to recruit members for a Soul Calibur group (this is really just so I have an excuse to make a Sophitia costume) and if anyone is interested, its an open group and you can cosplay any of the characters from any of the games.

Meh I tend to do the ones I like the look of and can look good as the character... Popularity helps...
Kite is main one I've been wanting to do since reading the Manga of LOTT and watching the anime of it
Would love to do one from soul calibur but its picking which character and the only two i like in the game are girls (Tira and Talim) only possible ones would be Kilik or Yungseong

I shall be going but I haven't registered yet, need to let my bank account calm down after Kita lol
Not decided on cosplays yet, there are some in progress I could possibly finish for it. I'll think about it after May Expo.

Ones you like the look of still count as doing them for yourself

If you do end up doing anyone from Soul Calibur then let me know, we have none of those characters so far. Talim is so cute, I think she's one of my favourite characters after Sophitia & Cassandra.

If I do make it there, I plan on doing Rosie from Valkyria Chronicle.

Oh cool. If I can make it then I'll drop you a PM It'll be cool to have a Alicia to go with my Rosie.

You could always come up to the con after work. I know quite a few people who do that. Some take Monday off others leave on the Sunday.

^_^ Talim was my favourite on 2, but 3 bought Tira who I just Love. Nightmare is also a favourite but to cosplay, would probably kill me XD

I would do a male version of Tira maybe but its the design... will do! I don't know when I'll be able to add it in.


06 Apr 2011 - 19:3953585
I shall hopefully be doing a maid group with my friends and my boyfriend being a butler (or a crossplaying maid XD) and Mami Tomoe from Mahou Shojo Madoka =D I can't wait =D

I have been getting stupidly excited too! I need to pay for Aya still actually (whooops).

But as I haven't been able to go to either Minami or Kita this year it means I'm all the more revved up for Aya!
It's going to be so great to hang out with everyone for a weekend again, and have lots of fun!

I have gone through so many different cosplay plans and I keep forgetting which ones I am and aren't doing, but I think this is it.

Terence (Tinkerbell Movies), Mytho - Raven Prince (Princess Tutu), Rath (Dragon Knights by Mineko Ohkami) undecided which version SO MANY BEAUTIFUL PICTURES!, some form of prince outfit maybe for a group which has lots of fairies!

I feel like there was more, but drawing a blank for now!

Eee can't wait! and so looking forward to everyones cosplays!


Yeap, I'm the same. I had to miss out on Minamicon and Kita as well. I've very excited for Ayacon. Also it will be a first anime event for my brother, Deppalike. Although, like me he's done loads of sci-fi cons he's never done an anime event. He is really looking forward to it and meeting everyone one.

I'm only planning on doing 3 cosplays for this aya since the night parties are so awesome and I'm cutting down as having too many is spoiling cons a bit.

Doing Yuka Kazami and Yukari Yakumo from Touhou Project. And also doing the Panzer VI Tiger Tank from the Girl Arms artbook.

May do Kuchinashi from Needless and drop Yuka or Yukari if interest picks up.

This will be my first Ayacon as well I'm hoping to book by next weekend so I know I can definitely go!

As far as costumes go I've got a couple of Vocaloid Kaito outfits planned, Kafei from Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and then hopefully either Tsubasa from Starry Sky or Elliot March from Alice in the Country of Hearts.

Fingers crossed I get them all done! I can't wait for this con :3


10 Apr 2011 - 14:5753777
Well hopefully going to Aya this year! we are certainly gonna try! Im not sure at all what im gonna be wearing right now which is a lie I have a rough outline XD so far im deliberating over

dietrich from trinity blood *but that character might change*

a Dieselpunk costume of some type

and probably Ryoga from Ranma 1/2 XD

and you know any excuse to wear a kimono XD

Quote Raven Kavanagh:
Love love love Ayacon. <3
I'm doing Alois (from Kuroshitsuji), Buttercup (from the Powerpuff Girls Z), bringing Harley Quinn (from Batman Arkham Asylum) if she's done in time, and if I'm very very lucky, some form of gijinka Toothless (from How To Train Your Dragon). Or if I don't get him finished, Hiccup.

Why do I set myself stupid goals?

Still, Alois is finished, bar getting a new coat, Harley's half-done, and I have a pattern for Buttercup.


:O Yay someone else is cosplaying from Kuro! Are you doing the normal outfit of Alois?

I went as Alois last year at Ame, thinking of Ciel this year.

Definately heading to Aya11, second Ayacon can't wait. Been itching to start costumes lately but everything else is sorted.

Costumes this year (not set in stone):

Ciel Phantomhive - Kuroshitsuji/ II (need to pick version)
Alois Trancy - Kuroshitsuji II(If we get my friends' Hannah costume sorted ><
Gijinka Pachurisu - Pokemon
Anya Alstriem - Code Geass 2(Mutuality Art book version)

The hardest would be Pachurisu, need to design and work a way around that tail! Somehow I got roped into it as my best friend is going as Dawn so I needed to be a pokemon...


Probably the normal outfit, although if I find a top for him, I'm doing the OVA outfit as well. I don't think the dress will be ready in time! My gf will be doing Ciel and a few of our friends will be butlers, maids, Lizzie, Angela/Ash, etc <3. I think I saw you as Alois at Amecon as well!

Last Ayacon was probably my favourite con of all time. So I am super excited for this next one.

I was planning on some far more elaborate costumes, but it looks like I am just going with something simple for the Sunday this time (unless I have a windfall of time/money ).

Big Macintosh from MLP;FiM

AyaCon 09 was my favourite Con, so I refuse to miss the next Aya, so I will definitely be there. I've already paid for registrations and accom ^^

Cosplay plans will be Tamaki kawazoe from Bamboo Blade on Friday, Nanoha Takamachi from Lyrical Nanoha Force on Saturday and unsure who to cosplay on Sunday though probably will not bother with a 3rd cosplay as I will be making a big prop for Nanoha which will take the entire space of my luggage.

I may be bringing my Quina again, but sorting bits out for it. Still up in the air though cause it takes a lot of space and I'm going up in a small car with three other people...

And I'm already bringing a bulky cosplay - Date Masamune and all his damn armour and swords (why did I decide to do him?! I've NEVER DONE ARMOUR OR SWORDS BEFORE!)
