What costumes do you plan to wear for Costume-Con? Making anything new? Have a hall costume you're really excited about?

Tell us!

#2 Sarcasm-hime on 7 years ago

I'm making something new for the Single Pattern, I'll be entering in the Historical, and as for hall costumes....don't really know! I have one new costume (Nomiya Maki concert outfit) I'll probably wear in the halls, but for the rest it may be just kimono. I don't have a lot of stuff that people at CC haven't already seen!

Well, right now, I may not make it because expenses here have gotten way out of hand. But, I am planning to remade and "upgrade" a costume I won with at a WorldCon a few years ago.

And I may do the historic masque, as a viking story teller doing Ray Steven's Erik the Awful.

And I am hoping to have Avatar roku and one of my Beast Wars Pokemon done, too.

I'll be going to Costume Con in 2015 and I'm already filled with ideas to submit for the masquerades and various contests. So super stoked!

#10 Kaijugal on 6 years ago

This will be my 7th year of going to costume con, and I still have only ever made 2 costumes for it, (the Single Pattern Competition at CC26 and the Historical for CC30). I'm always organizing costuming events for other people and never seem to have time to dedicate to making stuff for myself.

So I have no idea if I'll have anything for this year. ^_^;

P.S. Organizing CC32 is eating my life! LOL

#11 CapsuleCorp on 6 years ago

I feel you, Kaijugal. That's going to be me after the bid goes through.

I usually concentrate on a masquerade entry first and foremost, and intend to do Single Pattern or Future Fashion Folio if I have time. But so far, I haven't managed to leave myself enough time before the con to do another costume. We'll see how that goes for Denver!

(and Toronto. And Charleston...)

#13 khenemetset on 6 years ago

I keep seeing this topic and I'm all..."Ooooo, I'm going to make something fun and new."

Then, I remember sis and I aren't going to Denver and it makes me sad.

Hope everyone has a good time and makes awesome costumes so I can drool at the pics later. :)

#14 supergeekgirl on 6 years ago

Not going this year either. I'm moving to a new place and just won't have time or money.

I do plan on attending Toronto, though!

#15 Buddycat on 6 years ago

I'm still working on a Historical outfit, but will have to see how this works out, timing-wise. We'll see how the next 4 weeks go. Also, the cost of some accessories may prevent me from having it ready for this year, so I may switch to a couple of hall projects.
