Final Fantasy Distant Worlds Cosplay Meet-up 2012
Today tickets went on sale (and sold out in record time!) for Distant Worlds, and as it is the game series' 25th Anniversary I'm sure they're planning something amazing to make it a night to remember! As cosplayers we should certainly do our best to match up to their efforts.

There's been talk in the general thread about the event of a group meet-up, so I felt that putting it here where it can't get lost as easily would be the way to go to discuss this. Those who are going will now know if they are (Obviously. You've bought your tickets!)

Unfortunately I don't have very good knowledge of the surrounding area, so if anyone local could suggest a meeting spot then that would be very helpful. We can sort out a time closer to the date once everyone has sorted out transport and accommodation.

I've touched on this in the general thread but I thought I may as well say it here.

-Don't go for big props. You don't have a lot of space AT ALL so unless you look forward to holding up a prop between your legs all night, don't go for anything longer than your arm (elbow to fingertips?). So if it doesn't fit on your lap and you don't want the fuss, don't bring it. If you're lucky enough to be staying nearby and just want to bring it to the meet, post here and we can sort something out.
During the meet-up I'm sure pictures will definitely happen to commemorate the whole event, but keep it sensible!

-Consider size and height of your costume. So that would mean Black Waltzs will be out of the question (especially in the arena) because of the hats/wings. You don't want to knock people next to you. Large dresses are doable as I saw a Princess Garnet in her coronation dress. She seemed happy enough, just maybe consider reducing the volume or not having a crinoline/petticoat.

- If you do manage to get away with a weapon small enough, make sure it's obviously a fake weapon! So this means blaze tips/peace bonding people! Any guns should be put away outside the venue so you don't get a large security guard asking you to hand it over.

- It will be November. You'll do well to remember this and you will then be in a room packed with people. Dont wear anything you're going to freeze in, or overheat in. Treat this like a con in terms of cosplay guidelines. We don't want anybody getting so uncomfortable that they don't enjoy it.

-Comfy shoes! This is talking from experience but you do not want to know how many blisters I had on my feet walking from the hotel I was staying at, through the park to the venue (a LOT) and I was in agony, I'm only thinking of you guys here, but I still have the scarring from those custom made converse shoes - even after breaking them in. Or book yourselves a taxi to be safe

That's all the boring stuff out of the way and I hope I didn't come across as patronising, but we want to be able to come back year after year (hopefully!)

So if anyone is interested drop in a post here. I look forward to hearing about the different characters you're coming as! And if anyone can suggest a great place which hopefully isn't too far from the venue, let's hear it.

Of course, cosplay isn't absolutely necessary and if you want to come and have a chat, that's fine too!

Have fun everyone!

Not sure on the plans for the people I'm coming with but would love to meet up with other cosplayers if possible, and if ok with you.

Not completely sure on cosplay but hoping to do Terra from FF6.


18 Mar 2012 - 11:4581008
I'll be there along with a few friends!

Not sure who I'll be cosplaying yet but it'll likely be some sort of original design to suit the occasion again. ^_^


18 Mar 2012 - 14:5081020
I will be going and myself and my two friends will be cosplaying but I'm not 100% sure when we'll arrive in London atm all I know is it maybe train or flight down so we may or maynot be able to meet up xD

Thank you for re-iterating what I've mentioned about the costumes. I know not everyone has been so it's always good to make sure that people know that there's not a lot of room available.

I'm not yet listed as attending as I haven't put a costume up and nor has someone else that I know is going, but let's keep updating the list as we continue. I have a habit of switching depending on what is possible at the time so I'm not sure yet. Hopefully I'll make up my mind soon.

When more people have started confirming attendance and costumes I'll update the first post with locations/times in bold. If anyone has any other suggestions about a location in which to meet don't be afraid to speak up!

usually, these activities are very interesting, however, in our places, very few organizations would hold these activity! so pity
