Hahah yep here it is, 3 weeks out, and I haven't left myself enough time to do Single Pattern. And I had such plans for those chaps!

We're getting our SF&F entry done, though, dammit, come hell or high water. I want to be watching for tornadoes out the car window, not hand-sewing!

#18 CapsuleCorp on 6 years ago

I wish I had the time for more than one entry. How do you do it, Trixy? :D

We're going to finish, but probably at the very last minute. Other than our SF&F entry, I'm mostly bringing One Piece costumes and some costume pieces that work as normal clothing. I wish I had the time to fix Zoro's wig but I don't.

#19 Sarcasm-hime on 6 years ago

Yeah I'm just barely managing to finish my SF&F. For the rest, dunno what I'll bring.

Do we want to keep this thread going for 32 or start a new one? I started this originally for CC30 in Phoenix/Tempe.

If we're keeping it going, I'll contribute. I'm lightening my costuming load for the new year, so it's possible I'll only finish one of the two new costumes I want to make for CC32. My husband and I are working on Quidditch robes for Archon, so those will probably show up at the social or on Saturday.

We're really putting our hearts right now into our historical entry, which is the eponymous Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. If we happen to finish those and have time, we'd like to continue with the Captain Nemo costume we started for him. It's just that the Captain Nemo costume will require set pieces and things we cannot afford at the moment. Let's see how the year pans out.

I'm entering in the Sci Fi and Fantasy masq as well as Historical. I can't afford to over-commit to plans because I'm in school and since I so rarely do competitions, two at one con is going to be more than enough for my mind to deal with. @[email protected]

I can't imaging doing more then 2 costumes for this but then again both of mine devouring tons of fabric. O_o

#24 ShinobiXikyu on 5 years ago

I WISH I could make more stuff than my two costumes, but luggage space (got to take the bus) and budget AND time say noooooooo. I'll be rewearing my Princess Luna gijinka from Con-G, and I'll be debuting my remade Quorra from Tron: Legacy (that's planned for competition). Not sure what else I'll wear. I might just dress in my not-typically-suitable-for-everyday subculture fashion. I thought of bringing a comfortable cosplay along like Twilight Sparkle, but I doubt it'll get remotely the same attention as at regular conventions.

So excited! It will be my first ever Costume Con! But sadly I think I'll only have time for one new costume, so I'm making The Faun from Pan's Labyrinth, and I hope to wear it in the SF&F masquerade. I'll be re-wearing Zant and either Sewer Urchin or Falco.

Unless of course I manage to finish Yojimbo from FFX by then as well. But that is doubtful!

Also after viewing all of the Future Fashion Folio designs I really want to make one of those as well!

This is only my second Costume-Con, and second visit to Canada. I still haven't decided if I'm flying or driving, so that really impacts what I pack. I'll be bringing my Shobijin costume from Godzilla vs. Mothra. I've started making Katrina's witch outfit from Sleepy Hollow (obsessed!) but I'm not sure if it's better for the F&SF masquerade or historical. The design is fairly accurate to colonial fashion, but not 100%. My fabrics are a blend of realistic (silk, cotton, linen) and no way (poly brocade). Any input would be appreciated.

Oh, and because it's in Toronto I'm definitely bringing Envy Adams from Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Re: the Sleepy Hollow dress, I think it could go in either. It depends on which day you want to compete it. It would certainly work well for the F&SF, but if you want to compete on Sunday I'd email the historical director and ask him what he thinks. :) I'll PM you the email address.

#28 CapsuleCorp on 5 years ago

Man, I have no idea what I'm bringing. I'm no longer entering Single Pattern or Future Fashion show, so I guess it'll be whatever's in my closet. As much as I would like to make something new, I just don't have the money to sink into costumes I won't wear more than once.
