Ahhh, one of my planned items failed. Oh well! But I did come up with something kick and made it. =)

It wasn't part of the projects but I'm adding it!

I am sooooooo happy that there's finally a Michael's in NYC...especially since it's hard to find good craft stores around where i live...I'm working on my large item right now, I hope it comes out good...and all this talk of anime cons inspires me to get working on my cosplay after this swap >^.^<

Me too! I have a half-finished Vash the Stampede coat just hanging in my room, accusing me.

I made pretty good progress this weekend, finished a large I am rather proud of. I'm about half-way done, I just need a little bit of inspiration for an item or two . . .

I'm wanting to make cosplay now too. Went to a load of weapon making workshops at last year's ayacon and learnt that it's fun but I'll also kill myself in many painful ways trying to make anything. I made the costume for the character I want to cosplay two years ago but never finish the prop (magical girl lyrical nanoha, the srop is kind of a staff so not the easiest thing ever) then acidentally died the costume blue in the wash so now I have to do the entire thing again.

Wish I could get a table at a con XD Helped out as a friend's table at expo last year but she didn't even come close to breaking even, it's so expensive. Might look into amecon, should be cheaper and it's being held in walking distance of my friend's house this year which will make everything cheaper and easier.

I haven't cosplayed in a few years. I can't sew so I would piece meal my costumes. There's a Nami costume that got put together and I never wore it any where.

heck, I haven't been to a con in ages. I went to Fanime in 08 but after that, it was in 05 that was the last time I went to a ton of them. I started saving and going to Comic Con instead.

I went to my first con last september. I have to say that I was actually a little bored. Maybe I missed what you're supposed to do at cons...I will admit though that it might have been more fun had I stayed at the hotel, but since I have two little ones, I just wasn't comfortable with that. I did dress up though. That was tons of fun. Smiley But I dont really need to go to a con to do that. I'm thinking that I might try it again this year. Anyone have any suggestions on what I'm supposed to do? lol. I literally felt like one of the oldest people there and I'm only in my 20's.

I do think it would be tons of fun to have a table there tho. But I hear that it's really expensive and having one doesnt allow you to partake in panels. What do you think? Some of you mentioned having tables- is it wortj it? Do you usually come out even or profit?

Every convention is different - the feel of the spirit, the crowd, the type of stuff that's good or just mediocre...   Usually it seems the kids are most interested in dealer rooms and cosplay panels, so if you're looking for more mature company, check out the AAs and industry panels.  There's also the appeal of doing a cosplay group/meetup with other friends.  I've never been able to join in one of those, so I glorify it in my head like crazy mad.  X3

Man, my medium took two days to finish!  O_o  And there was so much leftover, um...  resource, I'm scrambling to think of what to use it for.  Probably going to try my hand at *mumblecough*
