Sorry to be a pain, but my friends keep changing who they want to cosplay as! The one who was going to be Sonata is now going to be Orine. Hopefully they should stick with this choices now!~

Also, the link to the FB page for AKB0048 doesn't work? D:

Hi! I'm a huge AKB0048 fan and I'm probably going to do a cosplay from that XD I'd love it if I can join in on this~

I tried going to the Facebook group for it but the link doesn't work XD

I'd would have loved to do Takamina (My AKB48 Bias) but that spot's taken. Even though I love Kanata in AKB0048 i'm not too fond of those pink outfits and I adore those red tartan ones XD So looking at what's free I'll go for Atsuko if that's okay? I'm not too fond of doing yet another long haired cosplay (Tomomi) and Sae doesn't have that cool tartan skirt XD
Though if the Takamina spots gets free-d up at one point please let me know

I'll be at Hyper Japan and October Expo hopefully, but I won't be free for the Saturday of Expo because I'm doing a lot of filming with the dance group I'm in XD

Thanks for letting me know about the link not working!!

This one does though, I'll update the links in a moment!

@Magpie (sorry, I'm lazy). That's fine! Change away lol

@Kanriku: I'll let you know if Aisuhimeriae decides not to do her, though I've still out your name down next to her. Catnip and I are also talking about doing AKB for Hyper Japan as well; basically having an idol weekend

Which the idea has made Catnip very very happy. She rarely gets me to cosplay what she wants to do (to be fair, she rarely cosplays from the same thing as me either lol).

On added about two names down; if you want to do the same character as someone, it's fine. I'm not the sort to stamp on that for the sake of having one of each character. The only time that it matters is if we're doing a performance or masquerade or something. It'd just look cooler if we got one of each lol. But still, don't feel you can't do the character you prefer just because someone else has them.

Thanks for the link!

Ahhh it's fine~ I really like Acchan's costume anyway And Takamina's pretty small and I'm an average height so it wouldn't work that well anyway I'll probably cosplay a version of her after season 2 in 2013 hopefully
And like you said it'd be nice to have one of each and get as many as possible

I've never really cosplayed anything for an Idol based Anime before so I can't wait for this! I'm really into Idol groups so this is amazing for me XD

Ahh that link still doesn't work O_o

... The ones of the front page are working now though, so that's a start...

AKB0048.

With me, I find the concept really cool, but I'm of the opinion they do not work well when there are only two of you. IdolM@ster can get away with three, as they go around in threes mainly, but the others? Not so much.

Which is why I started this thread. It would be amazing to get one of each character, or at least get the majority. I feel Idol cosplays just... look better in groups!

I joined it too!

I'm in the middle of working out how to start...I've never really made a cosplay before. However I have had costume making classes at College...I've got a rough idea of how I could do the skirt but the tail coat's going to be awful XD Moemall has 0048 wigs in stock so I'll probably get my wig from there.

Ahh, I've asked a cosplay commissioner from Newcastle to make mine!~ I don't trust myself xD

How much did you get it commissioned for?

No idea as of yet.... I'm just in love with this woman's work x3 The attention to detail and stuff she puts into the costumes is amazing :3

Skirt wise, it's just a simple circle skirt. This pattern makes this (modelled by Catnip, made by me :3) Now, I used net meshy material for that underskirt. And I doubled the layers. You'd probably need to double it again, or use tulle.

However, I'd actually go with this and make the black part of the skirt with tulle and netting (netting/mesh/chiffon for the top to give it a softer look). Then add the tartan panels, which are just four segments.

Jacket wise; It's actually quite easy to do the tails part, as long as you plan it out properly. As it is, it's be easier just to get a good form fitting jacket pattern, and add the tails as separate panels.

Although, I have found this which may make a good base for the tails... I'm not too sold on the skirt, tbh, I do think the other one will be better.

EDIT:

The skirt is actually quite technically easy. The most difficult bit is to not let it fold under yourself whilst sewing it.

ALSO, put a chiffon or lining under it all, okay? I didn't do that with Catnip's Mami outfit, and it was slightly irritating to her skin.

OH! AND DO NOT BUY FROM THOSE SITES!

Try and get the patterns from you local fabric shop or something. It has an appalling delivery time. You may also be able to find the pattens but googling Simplicity, followed by the pattern number

Could you let me know when you find out?? I may have to get this made to be honest. As I have quite a bit of Make-up work coming up, then Alcon, then College starting back up and we have 6 weeks of Props making, Make-up, Freelancing, Events management, UCAS stuff and other classes so I may end up with no time at all to make this which I hope isn't the case because I want to enter this into Masquerades and things ;n;

Ahh thank you! I know there's a few shops near me that have simplicity patterns in stock ^^

That Mami cosplay looks amazing! I was planning on doing a Homura cosplay but that may be taking a back seat for Atsuko.

I'm still pretty new to sewing XD I've emailed a Costume maker that I know to see if he can help slightly with it :'D

How would I put lining under Netting/Tulle/ect? Wouldn't that flatten the underskirt so it wouldn't 'poof' out as much? (The most annoying part about Acchan's skirt does look like the fact that it does stick out quite a bit O_o So I understand what you're saying about the extra layers XD.) Wouldn't cotton be a good fabric to use over all of the tule/netting of the underskirt? Or would that be too heavy?
I think I should be fine with the skirt...It's just that jacket I'm not looking forward to attempting. It looks like a bit of Bias binding is going to be needed and the last time I dealt with that stuff I nearly threw it out of the College window XD

I meant put a lining (just use lining material, it's super cheap) under all of it so it protects your skin. It's just so that you've got a soft/silky layer between your skin and the courser material. It's great stuff, netting, tulle and mesh (I used organza, I believe) but it can make you itch like hell. Chiffon is the kindest fabric in the word, but it's really too expensive to use on a skirt like that. You'd need loads of the stuff to make a skirt that poofy, and then it wouldn't cope well with any material over the top.

If you make a tulle underskirt skirt, with then some layer of mesh or softer material on top, you'll get a nice shape from that. Tulle is super brilliant at staying at that height, so you could use whatever fabric you wanted to the tartan panels - it will not have a massive effect on it. Cotton would be a good material for it though, and is really easy to use, so yeah, go with that! ^_^

Essentially, I'm saying make a the red tu-tu in the Simplicity pattern 2067, the put the panels over the top.

I shall let you know what price she quotes me~ I haven't seen any cosplay sites really except one or two that sell AKB cosplay D: Moemall had one for Chieri that was more or less spot on, just the ribbon was a little dark..~

Ohhs, that Mami cosplay is amazing!~ :33 I was tempted to try cosplaying Kazumi from the prequel manga :3

Thanks about the Mami cosplay ^_^ I'm considering cosplaying her myself, lol, and Catnip doing Madoka :3

Regarding AKB; I'm incredibly open to which character I do, so if anyone wants someone who has my name next to it, lemme know, m'kay?

Alsoalsoalso; AKB0048 group for Hyper Japan as well?

Decision!
I actually decided to do AKB0048 Yuki Kashiwagi but she is quite tall and im only 5ft1 so I may decide to do Minami Takahashi as she is the smallest character. She is actually my favourite character so if you remove me from Yuki that would be appreciated

Sorry for the mess about

what version of idolmaster are people thinking about for hyper japan? -if it was said sorry ; ^ ; could not find-
my favs are taken but depending on version there are others i would jump in as!~~ xD


15 Aug 2012 - 21:5189379
Instead of Suzuko as my second choice, I'd step in as Yukirin? When I decided to originally cosplay as AKB, I was between Yukirin and NyanNyan, before I finally chose Chieri. I'd love to be Yukirin though as part of the 74th Generation and then Chieri as part of the trainees. (: Chieri would be my first choice though, as she's like practically sorted and altogether now (:

I quite like the snowy pink and the floral in yellow, but nothing has been finalised yet. I agree that those doing things should match up though.

As long as you're aware how hugely popular she is. There are now four people down as her.

@LakeLandMagpie: I've update you :3

IDOLM@STER PEEPS FOR HYPER JAPAN - THIS IS IMPORTANT

Here are the choices I've put up for Hyper Japan (I removed some as I thought about how practical they'd need to be)

Snowflake Lillypad - All outfits are the same. Also, this has accessories on them (the muffs, lockets and thing around the calf).
School Girl - All outfits are the same
Candy Lady - note: without thing on wrist
Trousers: Miki, Takane, Iori, Mami, Chihaya, Ritsuko
Skirts: Azusa, Yukiko, Haruka, Ami, Hibiki, Makota, Yayoi
Forever Star - All outfits are the same
Luxury (shown in pink) - THIS CAN BE IN ANY COLOUR OR PATTERN
Floral (shown in pink) - THIS CAN BE IN ANY COLOUR OR PATTERN
Beyond The Stars
Hibiki's Design - Hibiki, Yayoi, Azusa, Makota
Miki's Design - Miki, Haruka, Mami, Ami
Takane's Design - Takane, Iori, Ritsuko, Chihaya, Yukiko
"Platinum" - I don't know it's actual name IMPORTANT NOTE: there is no Hibiki or Takane design for this. But Luxury would blend in nicely with this.
Marching Band - No Hibiki/Takane again, but they're all the same design
Snowy (shown in Pink) IMPORTANT NOTE: No Hibiki, Takane OR MIKI in this design. However, pretty much any design will go with this, so it's okay :3 Also, any colour or pattern available.

I'm gonna put it here; I love the Snowflake Lillypad and Beyond the Stars, but I think Luxury, Floral or Snowy would work the best.

There is a poll on Facebook
Also, folder with more information on the images - difficulty/dancing pros-cons/how recognisable

Please feel free to suggest your own :3

I thought everyone was cosplaying AKB on the Saturday? (:
I'm cosplaying Chieri on the Saturday, though I'm getting changed for some photos with another group later on in the day. I've been roped into cosplaying from Bleach again all day Sunday, but could get changed into Chieri if people are only cosplaying AKB on Sunday? (:

Aye, me too. Ros3ify was the first AKB cosplayer I stumbled across for October so when she said she could only make Saturday, I decided I'd cosplay Chieri on that day too so we could cosplay together (:
