Here's kind of what I had in mind:
*General Cosplay - Q&A Panel (ideally the first panel in this bunch to start things off =D)
*Beginner's Panel: Basic Hand-Sewing
*Beginner's Panel: Choosing the Right Fabric
*Introduction to Wig Work
*Designing for Fashion and Cosplay
*Pattern-making: Creating a New Pattern/Pattern Modification
*General Loli Information Panel (differences between EGL/Sweet loli/etc, key components of the style, etc)
*Overview on Propwork and Accessories (materials, where to get them, how to use them, painting, etc)
*Keeping It Con-Safe: How to Look Good Without Getting Hunted Down by Con Staff (uhm...I'm still kind of playing with this idea...)
*Crossplay: From Female to Male (female attendees only)
*Crossplay: From Male to Female (male attendees only)
*Online Cosplay: The Dos and Don'ts of Buying Online
*How to Start a Commissions Business
Plus whatever else fills up time. These are just stuff that I came up with. I want the Cosplay Room to be open and running on the day of the Masquerade and the Fashion Show (they're on the same day, right? If not, then the day of the Masquerade is preferred). I'd like the panels to start running at maybe 10 or 11 AM. There will be no panels run during the time Masquerade participants have a meeting, and the last panel will be run two hours before the Masquerade so that everyone can go to the Masquerade! (And so that the people actually in the Masquerade can go there.)
There will also be no panels run two hours before and during the Fashion Show so that attendees can go see that, too ^__~
A new panel will be run at the start of each hour (meaning the longest one panel can run is one hour).
Tailoring for the Real Body sounds interesting...what is that exactly? Like how to take measurements or something?
I don't really want to separate stuff into too much of the beginner-intermediate-advanced categories since there's plenty of people out there who can do one thing but not the other (i.e. okay at sewing, not good at making patterns - is that beginner or intermediate?). If the panels were just separated into topics, people could go to what they wanted to work on =]
Hey, fullmetalneko, does this mean that my proposal was approved? Can I start looking for tutors for the panels? (I'm not running all of them, per se, but I will be hosting/running a few and basicaly float around making sure everything is running.)
Also, every panel attendee will get a "tutorial sheet" for that specific panel, which the attendee can keep for reference (for example, the Propwork panel would have a list of suggested materials of use, etc.).
