Psst, B -- you have me on the list from last year, I think, as bringing certain things.  I'll definitely look through my Pile o'Stuff and see if there's anything I can donate this year, but the stuff from last year won't be making a repeat appearance. ^^;;;

Chopped Cosplay sounds like it could be a lot of fun. XD

I am willing to try to bring something this year. I think I might have some extra sewing things I don't need any more. Also I am interested in bringing back my sewing by hand q&a if possible.

So I did a massive posting update on posts #1, 2, 4, 5 & 6. Team application for Chopped Cosplay is at the bottom of Post #4 and the Fabric swap info is also up. Oh and did you notice there are 2 ROOMS :) Repair station is located in Market Room this year!

I will update the donation information later because it is crunch time and I have lots to do INCLUDING updates to the Offical gatherings & events list :)

@ AnimefanJJ: I would love to have your hand sewing Q&D see the Post 2 for submission info and lets get you Q&D on post 1! :)
@ Charis: Opps :P I'll fix that when I get to update the list
@tatterpixie: That would be AWESOME... I'll add it to the list when I update the repair station info.

I didn't realize this happened last year, but I think it is awesome. I do have one of those singer handheld machines and wouldn't mind permanently donating it to the cause. I have other notions I can donate as well. If I make it to the next staff meeting I'll try and pass them off then.

I'd love to do a q&d as well, but have no clue what people would like to see. I can do anything from pattern manipulation to draping. I also know how to make simple but effective draping dummies.. I can also show how to make simple consafe swords with sheaths. I'd love to hear if anyone has any particular things they'd like to see.

The cosplay hangout this year was AMAZING! They had really tasty citrus water (fancy), balloons (my friend and I started a game of catch/volleyball), make-up and alll of your cosplay needs, chairs, beanbags, and a convenient location right next to a major cosplay gathering area! this was my first time, and I will definitely go back again! You may, however, want to make the No Press rule a little more obvious (I got the rule, but I did notice some taking pictures.)

One thing that'd be interesting to see is what sort of panels/Q&Ds/etc. people would be interested in seeing in the cosplayer hangout.  I've thought about trying to do one or two, but I'm terrible at ideas and gauging what people might want to learn about ...

I'm planning a major clean in the next handful of months; if I find anything that might be helpful for the hangout, I'll save it to donate -- and I certainly hope the fabric swap's at a time I can make next year!  Goodness knows I've got enough random odds and ends ...

If I make it to Fanime 2013 I am super excited to see Chopped Cosplay! Awesome that it'll be around again, it was totally awesome to watch last year!

Gotta cool all those cosplayers! If anyone can make a PVC "tree" with say 3" or 4" pipe someone can probably attach a blower and use the "tree" to direct airflow to service multiple cosplayers/fursuiters at once :D

I could probably host some sort of Q&D Session or Workshop.

I have 3 official panels:
http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,18135.0.html

I can touch on similar topics again, though it seems like you already have a props-oriented session.  Here are some other possible ideas for discussions.

Costuming and Film - Talking about the difference between approaching costuming for conventions vs film.  I can discuss my experiences in filming in costume, putting actors in costumes, what happens when a costume designed for costumers to wear is tossed onto an unprepared actor, differences in priorities when approaching costume construction, etc. as well as some ways to get started in the industry for those interested.

That Armor/Costume Makes No Sense! - Where we critique how uncomfortable and nonsensical some costume designs are, no matter how cool they may look.  (e.g. how deceptively simple looking the Madoka costumes look to non-costumers; armor where if it was made like it actually appears you wouldn't be able to move)

I can probably think of some more later as well if those don't sound appealing.

Looking for teams for Chopped Cosplay!


I would love to do chopped cosplay again it was so much fun last year (I was captain for the Moogle group). It would be helpful to first know minimally what day the actual competition is going to be so I can recruit a team with that in mind.

Thank you for posting the day and time for the Copped competition! However, I'm concerned about the time that was selected as it overlaps with two major con. events, MusicFest and to a lesser extent the Steampunk Ball. These are events that I and my friends are very keen on attending and I'm worried that it might also impact the overall audience attendance for the Copped Cosplay competition. I understand if this is set in stone or rather inflexible due to other scheduling conflicts. I just thought that I would voice my concern here.

It is actually scheduled for the same time as it was last year :) We did not have to run eliminations on Friday last year, however if we have a lot of teams then we run eliminations on Friday so that we end up with 4 teams for the competition. The Steampunk ball lasts for hours so even if you take out two hours to do the competition you will have plenty of time to enjoy the ball and as for MusicFest... well that is if we have a lot of teams. I hope this encourages your team to apply and come compete :)
