Anyone going to Midlands 09?
Uh so I just found out about Midlands today and whilst I know its not the best of cons as far as they go I'm excited because I get to do one of the costumes I'd otherwise have to wait for May to do.

However I can't decide which and depending on whether there are any 'groups' going it might sway me so is anyone going to Midlands and who do you plan to cosplay?

I'll be going if we can get a ride up there. I'll probably be using it as a test run for our Golden Sun costumes. Just got to make the scythe in time. ><

What are the masquerade rules regarding london expo? I mean if I enter a costume in the midlands one can I still enter it in the London masquerade? I know there's a couple of rules regarding entering costumes twice into London expo so I was wondering how this applied.

im going

though not sure who to cosplay

I'm going! Unfortunately I can't tell you what I'm (hopefully) going as, because A. it's a secret and B. it depends if I get it finished on time. XD

And as for masquerade rules, I don't think you're allowed to enter a costume into both a London and Midlands masquerade. Or, at least, that's always the impression I've had. I'm sure someone will come in here and correct me if I'm wrong, though. :B

I will be there Filming and doing photo shoots. If you are interested in a Photo Shoot, please PM me. I will be putting out an official Press Release later on tonight with times and prices.

I'll be there as Freya Crescent again, I don't really have the time or motivation to make a new cosplay right now XD My friends and I will be in a small Final Fantasy IX group, consisting of Freya, Vivi and Zidane (and I think at some point a Garnet too!).

And from what I've heard - Masquerade rules apply across the two expos, if you've entered at London with a certain cosplay, said cosplay can't enter Midlands too. It's a bit fail because some people won't get to see an awesome cosplay's masquerade cosplay performance if they don't go to both expos... but it's still a good rule to have because then you get to see different costumes each time, I suppose.

I hope to be going. Its on the same day as my Dad's birthday. Depending on what he decides to do then I might be there. If I do go then my cosplay will be last minute decision.

I'm going as Belle with a couple of friends. We're turning it into a bit of a holiday because it's so far (yet it's the closest XD) so three day weekend wooh!

Hopefully I'll be going as [Otome no inori] Lina from Slayers NEXT.

I'll try and be there as Garnet for a mini-shoot with Freya's group! ^_^

For the main part though I'm planning on doing Takuto from Full Moon wo Sagashite. Kytiane will be Mitsuki, Shigures high school girl as Meroko and Special-pleb as Izumi! [We might make ourselves a Jonathon as well]

I'm mega excited about Full Moon group! *___*

I should be going.
Well, I better be going! I've already bought the materials and begged the pattern off my textiles lady teacher friendface and I've started adjusting the pattern also!
I happen to be visiting my brother in Stafford whilst Midlands is on and he said we should go, the distance isn't too far from there (I've heard, I have no clue XD)

But, hopefully, as Utena from Revolutionary Girl Utena :3

Yep, I plan to be there. Most likely I will be cosplaying Princess Kraehe, but I might be taking a few artistic liberties with the costume..you'll have to wait and see.

I'm also working on a little performance routine for the masquerade, if I can get a place. So yeah, looking forward to it. ^_^

YAY! A Slayers copslayer. I did consider cosplaying as Gourry but I'm way too short (mind you I'm far too short for all my cosplays. Lol!). I'm most likely to go in my Abel nightroad from Trinity Blood (anime version).

I would go as Sephiroth but the arnour is a bit of a pain to lug around for just one day.

08 Jan 2009 - 01:259371
Well apparently I'm going XD. So hopefully I'll be cosplaying Desire of the Endless, from The Sandman comics. Failing that, guess I'll recycle something old.
