So I went to ConQuest, the scifi/fantasy convention a while back and wore my steampunk-ish outfit. It's not complete by any means, but I enjoyed wearing it.

I hope these are open to the public...

So now, my next con that I'm going to is AFW in July...actually in a few weeks. Now I've been thinking about what I might want to wear and/or make. I will have two weeks (my summer break) to work on something if I want to.

Now I know that I have Touga from Utena to work on and Spring's Saionji also from Utena to work on. I also have a pattern and fabric to make a shirt for Yuki from Fruits Basket. So I have those two/three to work on at least. But I don't know if I want to work on those to wear to AFW or do something else. I was also thinking about digging something out of the cosplay closet to wear, like my Battle Royale costume.

One's that I've been thinking about doing:

Fairy Rikku from Kingdom Hearts II

It's a fairly easy design, so I don't forsee any major problems, and I can always make the shirt long enough to cover my fat belly XD

Or even Arpegius from Interstellar 5555

Which might be fun, but maybe not...don't know

Merle from Escaflowne

Again, it's a pretty easy and she's cute anyway!

Well...I guess I still have some time to mull over my options and figure something out. I think if nothing else I will pull something out of my cosplay closet (http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/complete.asp?memberid=544) Or if you guys have any comments lol ^^;

It's time to take a shower.

ALWAYS TAKE AT LEAST ONE TRIED AND TRUE COSPLAY. at least that way you know you'll have SOMETHING that works. i think you should go with Fairy Rikku if you're gonna do something new. Arpegius seems too simple and while Merle IS cute, there will be 10,000 other Merle's and Catgirls there, so why not stand out? now, if you can do the whole thing where the scarf on Fairy Rikku makes it look like she has wings, that'd be TOTALLY AWESOME, too!
