I have some good news for this group, my friend Dokucherry has agreed to cosplay as Homura for this group, so I'm happy to say we have a full group

@ Nixie
Your progress is amazing! Can't wait to see this completed

@ CrystalNeko
If your doing Homura for Fushi let me know because if you want, I can cosplay as either Kyoko or Madoka for you (though most likely to be Madoka because I doubt I have time or even can afford to make another Madoka Magica cosplay until early 2012 onwards)


Excellent! I'm so excited about this now!


05 May 2011 - 23:5555575
Yaaay full group! <3

Yeah, I pretty much knew at least one of my friends will agree to be our Homura because they are Madoka Magica fans and how they cannot resist when we will have a full group

I will be going cosplay shopping tomorrow to buy the fabric for Madoka, so hopefully will start making the costume this weekend. It's kind of annoying because I thought I have enough spare baby pink fabric, but I have approximately half a metre left which might not be enough, so guess I will have to spend more money


06 May 2011 - 23:3155636
I hate it when you find the perfect fabric and it comes down to crunch time of 'how much do you need?' I've never once gotten it right so now I just overestimate every time and end up with about two meters left over for error/redo's/other projects.

However I strike lucky in terms of financially dealing with costumes. My boyfriend tends to pay for the fabric, and I make both his and my own costumes to make up for it. It's a system that's worked for a few years now, and I tend to prioritise his costumes because he pays. I signed up to the fabric shop for newsletters so I can get updates on when the sales are, which always helps.


06 May 2011 - 23:4655638
I typically either overbuy or underbuy. But really, only two extra metres? I had enough fabric left over from my over buyage to make two cloaks, complete with lining and details. Still, I totally messed up the first time so had to remake it anyway.

Yes, remaking is something I do a lot. I might unstitch a lot of that and re-sew it... it's puckered in places...

And i've started watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica... Up to episode 4 - and yes, I've been crying lol.

If they didn't wear so short of clothing, I would join you for this group. But they're too short for my liking and I don't think I'll be able to make Kyubey so...

Of course, the more the merrier! Any characters you had in mind?

Depends what kind of Kyubey you want to go for. My boyfriend is wanting a human Kyubey costume from some artwork that he found. (http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_li6s3wCPbe1qdayf7o1_500.jpg)
You could always try looking for some and alter it so its to your liking in terms of length?

These links could help get you started if you decide to go for it. I know google images can sometimes be spoileriffic.

Of course. I've updated the first post so that we know who is going and as what. If anyone else decides they want to join and if they know what theyre going at, feel free to let me know and I'll update it with your username (not wanting to jump the gun yet)

but I am still bit confused, what should I do now?


07 May 2011 - 03:3655732
Choose a character from the anime that you like, make the costume and we'll all organise to meet on a particular day of the col (its looking like a sunday at the moment).

so you mean we'll the costume by ourself?
but if i don't know how to make it .....>_<


07 May 2011 - 03:4155734
You can buy costumes online by looking at various websites or even ebay. If you pick a character I'm pretty sure that myself and the other girls can help to advise you. Not all people decide to make their own costumes for reasons like not owning a sewing machine, lack of knowledge on how to sew or in the process of learning, so dont worry too much.

oh~I see~~~~~
I shouldn't be worried. sooo, can we meet the group first? because it's the first time and i really wanna see what's actually going to happened.


07 May 2011 - 10:4155739
Well, the pink fabric which I currently have was from another cosplay (Sakura's pink dress) and it's pretty much perfect for Madoka, then again I will be on the safe side and buy some extra from the fabric store today. I will probably end up overbuying, but having too much is better then too little.

Of course, anyone is welcome to join this group. I'm sure doubles will be welcome if you decide to cosplay as a character already taken.
Which character will you be?

Do you mean plan a meet up beforehand? Sadly don't think people will be available to meet until AyaCon unless we all live close to each other, but I'm sure we will see each other at AyaCon prior to the group meet

Thanks for the links Angel Tear - but I'm one of those annoying people who have the annoying need to make the character look like the character, so generally human forms make me go "NOES IT MUST BE LIKE MASCOT!!!" Only with me though, I don't mind other people doing it :3

And your BFs choice is really cool. Although my brain just keeps going NAAAAAAAAAVAAAAAAAAAAAL cause I'm a weirdo lol.

Plus, give me a very good reason to lose weight >:3

THough I'll prolly be human Kyubey - I'm still looking for cosplays lol.

God help you if you did a mascot in August if its really hot (Not that I can talk, I'm cosplaying as King Kazma on one of the days)

My boyfriend definitely has the figure for it. I envy him so much D: I'm not sure if he will keep the length of the shirt or not.

Would you like me to put you down as Kyubey also then? or would you like to wait until you have a solid design that you like?

I dunno.. I'm being really indecisive lol. Do you have a date for this planned at all? I may not be able to do Sunday, you see.

EDIT: I'm really tempted with the mascot version though - I've always wanted to do one lol! Maybe not be a true mascot... Or maybe I can incoperate a cooling system... I have an electronic fan I can insert into it, I'd need to paint it though

I would have preferred to do it on the saturday, so I could enter mine into the Masq, but some people want to do something else for the masq or sat and I didnt want to be the only one to complain about it, so I'll just change beforehand. Friday is a pretty crappy day in terms of settling in/arrivals and getting used to the venue (if, like me, youre a newbie to this particular con)

But yeah, for now it looks like its going to happen on the sunday. It'd be great if you made it though


08 May 2011 - 22:4455954
You should so make a mascot!

and it would of been cool if we could of entered the masquerade, especially as we had a whole group!

My cosplay on the Saturday is pretty simple (apart from the binding) so if anyone wanted to we could maybe change on Saturday just for the Masq?

I've never been in a masq before though so I wouldn't really know what to do >.>

Ah, I wouldn't be able to do it on the Sunday, I'm part of the FMA Group. Being Kimbley

REALLY want to do the mascot. I'm gonna look up expense and see how much space it'll take up in Catnip's car - though I'm happy to travel with Kyubey's head on my lap lol

And it would be cool to be in the Masquerade - I've been before, and if it's the same as the one in kitacon it'll be marked out where you pose. One on the main stage, then you walk onto a bit out, then pose at the end of that.

Simples!

If I did do the Masq though, I'm more likely to do it with Catnip if she wants to do it as well. Cause she's mah Mami! lol

The whole group entering the masquerade sounds good, but unfortunately I already got plans for another costume to be in the masquerade and I think Dokucherry will most likely have her own plans though not 100% sure. If my masquerade costume fails to be on time, then I would not mind entering as Madoka, however I am unable to confirm until closer to the time.

If this group decides to switch to Saturday, I will be happy to cosplay as Madoka on Sat as long as the meet and photoshoot is early so it will give me enough time to change cosplays.

Providing Nacthangel and AngelTear is happy to cosplay as Kyoko and Mami respectively on Sunday, it looks as though the full group will most likely be happening on Sunday. Looking at the topic on the AyaCon forums, it seems as though ElleEctricity can only be Sayaka on Sunday and my friend, Dokucherry has agreed to be Homura on Sunday (not sure if she is willing to switch to Sat, but I can ask her)

I guess we can make this group on both Sat and Sun, so people can join the group on their prefered date or both days because it's unfortunate that we are not going to find a particular date or time when everyone can make it.

I'm fine with Sunday as I'm doing a group cosplay with two other friends on the Saturday (We're going as some of the boys from SHINee) and it probably would be easier to not have to change for the masq (especially with the binding for Minho)

So it seems like the best day will be Sunday for everyone ^_^

I'm fine with sunday. Mami isnt exactly hard to change into for the masq and I can always put my Sakura/whichever costume I'm having for the sat back on afterwards. Chances are I'll probably want to take a break after the masq anyhow.

Now on to the touchy subject...

If we DO go ahead with a group entry, what would we do about duplicate characters? (for example if more people choose to join in and we get multiple Kyokos/more mami's/more Kyubeys/Charlottes) I'd hate to leave anybody out but I dont know what people's feelings about duplicate characters are. Do we do it as a first come first serve basis or in some other way? Of course we dont even have to worry about that until its verified that we are actually doing it as a group.
