« on: September 12, 2008, 07:50:33 PM »
so there is a person i want to impress and start the day off with a good impression
so here is the story
i asked a person who i am interested in to go to San Francisco and we are going tomorrow
now here is my delema
generaly is it good to get a bit dressy (a sweater dress shirt blazer slacks)
or to go more casual (black long sleve tee striped hoodie and dark jeans)

Cosplay! Construction, Tips, Gatherings, Advice / safe fabric?
« on: May 18, 2008, 01:02:28 PM »
so this might be an odd question but i made a cosplay where there is fabric i bought from joanns covering my mouth. i have washed it several times and probably will some more just to be safe
but i was wondering if there are any bad chemicals in the fabric that would make it a bad idea to wear
and the fabric is kinda like swim suit fabric if that helps

thank you for your help

just wanted to make sure if these were ok i saw some people last year who didnt have shirts on and a couple of my costumes require not shirt so i just wanted to check if i would get in trouble

alright so i made a cool 3 foot long ds stylus and when i go to get it peace tied i was wondering if they would make me tie it to my costume?
its 3 feet long and made out of wooden dowls i have tried contacting sos via email and they havent responded so i though i should check here

Things in the Universe / poor judging and cute little kids
« on: April 06, 2008, 08:44:31 AM »
so i am going to a small convention at the end of april and one of the things i get anoyed by is the way they judge their costume contest
they use a clap meter from the croud
no one of the problems is this con is filled with people who only watch naruto bleach and FMA with the ocasional death note and it seems the only game they play is kingdom hearts
which is all fine and dandy until they wont even clap for a person who is cosplaying.... GASP a series they dont know
also its kinda unfair when little kids win just cause there moms made them a orgonization 13 costume and everyoens like so cute

so basicaly post agreeing with me disagreeing with me or post bad costume contest experiences

General Convention Discussion / signs glomps and bans oh my
« on: February 22, 2008, 09:17:41 PM »
so basically i have been spending the last week or so looking at all these posts about how signs are baned and how the detract from the con experience and posts about how glomping is just sexual assault or is just wrong or other things to that extent. and at this point i have been saying my views as they are part of the con experience and no one can do away with them but i will agree that there are several different view points.

for signs from what i have gathered people don't like them because they are just "attention whoring" and people are just being lazy. others find it fun because they act upon the signs and receive those free hugs or glomp the person. and now on my personal experience i have noticed that signs are often a strange and mildly perverse ice breaker to make new friends and meet awesome people at cons. and besides that who here would miss bart boys osaka rides the bart sign i know i would. my suggestion to end this debate is that people who don't like signs should in all honesty just ignore them it is actually possible to walk by them and think in your head "that persons being a tard and is just to lazy to wear a costume" and keep going where as the people like my self can spaz out and look like an idiot and take that free hug and be like "LOL OMG YOU ARE SO COOL". but thats just my opinion

the other major topic in a heated debate is the glomp i have read around that people have had bad experiences dont like to be touched have been stolen from and sexually assaulted via the glomp. there have been many suggestions on how to fix this and one of them is to make it against con rules to glomp or make it extreamly frowned upon. i also agree that this can get totaly out of hand and can hurt....a lot but i have noticed that deep down (for most of them at least) they are just a slightly awkward pat on the back and a congrats for doing a good job or having a common interest as another person. i also agree that there should be some ground rules for the glomp like how a heads up or just asking (when i say heads up i mean shouting at the person "OMG ______ CAN I GLOMP YOU!?!?!") so that way for either situation they have the option to just turn you down or accept and brace yourself. there are also the kinda ya know
commandments of glomp 1 one shall ask before glomping 2 one shall respect glompees decision 3 thou shalt not steal sexually harass hurt or damage glompees costume 4 don't glomp to hard with those rules and if every one fallowed them (highly unlikely but hey one can wish) then glomping would be ok and for the most part people just need to glomp less hard and respect the other persons decision

finally my final thing i want to say is that at least it seems to me that things of the nature of signs and glomping should be just treated as if it were from another culture to me this seems to be when i take people to there first con they experience culture shock and that is just one of those things you have to expect and respect no mater how hard you try you can never stop making the French greet each other by kissing on the cheek or stop Canadians saying eh its just not going to happen (no offense to those groups of people i am Canadian and also French so no offense just using as an example) these are the same as when you go to an anime con you cant expect people to stop carrying signs and running around glomping people. to me it almost seems like asking cosplayers to stop cosplaying because it makes you seem like an over acheaver and show off it aint gonna happen.
so the whole point of this post is to say no mater how hard you try ( OK bad example you could ban them but then you would just have a bunch of unhappy underground sign baring con goers) people will still want to have signs and glomp and lets face it you can either ignore them or join em and who want to go to a con where there no attention whore to give your attention to?

(these are just my views and my atemps to stop people arguing over this subject do not brutally mame me or hurt me for this >_<)

so i just made these 2 swords and they are both about 3/4ths of an inch thick made out of ply wood

i put the old program guide for a size key
so i want to use these with a yukata (blade of the immortal) but my only problem is i do not want the con ops to peace tie them to my obi for fear of flashing my boxers and ripping the yukata or smudging paint all over it also there is really no other place to put em
would you think that they would just peace tie them and send me on my way? or do you think that only to a belt? or just to my hands? cause that would really really suck so please can some one help me with this predicament
and im still kinda excited cause i just finished them ^_^ i know my weapon skills aren't great but Im working on em

so this year i have a delema i have 2 costumes which i want to wear for friday but the problem is that i only can wear one because its a school trip and i cant realy pack another in my bag. so i am curiouse which costume out of these 2 people would like to see beter

Manji - blade of the immortal (a half black and white yukata with an X on the back)( another note is that i will not have any swords with this just a pin weel and a wooden flute so if that changes your mind)
captain kuro - One piece (a suit with some designs on the front with samurai sword claws {about 2 feet each})

please help me decide

Cosplay! Construction, Tips, Gatherings, Advice / enchanted arms?
« on: November 04, 2007, 08:57:15 AM »
is there anyone else going as some one from here im considering yuki or atsuma? would people recognize it

so i want to do manji from blade of the immortal and i was wondering if i should put the manji on his back becasue it is a bhudist symbol but everyone might think its a swastica so should i just make it an x as aposed to a manji or do the manji and carry around a sign
im kinda leaning towards the x just for being easy
what do you guys think?
