Um... my friends and I might be dressing as Tsubasa characters... I'm going as Chii, and the others are going to be Sakura and Yuuko. But this is might, mind you.

I'm not sure what you might need tips on for your costume... do you have any of it in mind? For his belt-like things, and the headpiece, I'd suggest that pvc fabric stuff. It's somewhere around $11 a yard, but it's pretty darn versatile. PVC is a good, stiff fabric that looks a little like patterned pleather. I've used it in random parts of almost all my costumes, from headbands (chrno) to belts (nico robin and chrno) to shoe covers (portgas d. ace) to skirts and shirts (nico robin again). If you get black, you'll be able to use it for all sorts of parts of your costume. Don't use it for the whole thing, though.

When in doubt, go with the lightest fabric you can find for the majority of your costume (pants, capes, etc). May can be pretty warm, especially if you're wearing multiple layers or all black. Also, light fabric makes for better photo shots, sometimes. That windswept, action pose, you know.  :wink:

Try doing a Yahoo or Google search on goggles.  There has to be an online store that sells many styles of goggles.

Last year, I needed boots for my FMA cosplay.  I did a search on boots and browsed at three online stores that sells boots to find the best match boot style.

at one point i was considering cosplaying yuuko, but things have changed.

anyways, when i had to make a belt for a costume i made it from scratch, belts aren't hard to make actually. just need a long piece of fabric/tool to mamake holes in the fabric/and the metal belt pieces(i dont know what there called lol)

as for the goggles you can easily buy them or some that look like them at an army surplus store, or even a halloween store before halloween ends as well

gl with your tsubasa cosplays, i hope they turn out nice ^^

Well, my Kurogane cosplay is now in the process of being made.  Got some of the armor done (made out of foam board) and hopefully I can make/buy a katana by the con.  Think there will be a gathering this year?  Oh, and if we gather on the same day as the Cosplay Chess, we should enter for one of the sides  :D

I'm going to cosplay as Syaoran.  Looking at the number of anime fans cosplaying from Tsubasa Chronicle, maybe begin a list of who's cosplaying who, even though it's still early and to keep the forum topic alive?  

Cody Pierce, do you want to organize the list?   :)
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ININ on February 17, 2006, 05:31:16 PM
The cosplay gatherings are being organized.   Are there any Tsubasa Chronicle cosplayers out there XD  I can organize the gathering.
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: Evangelion Xgouki on February 18, 2006, 04:45:09 PM
I'm about 50% or so done with my Kurogane cosplay.  As long as it doesn't conflict with the RO gathering, I'm gonna attend  :D
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ININ on February 20, 2006, 04:50:52 AM
I'm with you on the conflict, Evangelion Xgouki.  I'm with the Full Metal Alchemist gathering as well ^_^

Post by: Evangelion Xgouki on April 13, 2006, 08:22:41 PM
Well, Fanime is about 40 days away.  How's everyone doing on their TC cosplays?  I'm about 70% done and should be done in time for the con.  So when should we plan for a Gathering (if we're even going to have one)?  I figure either Saturday or Sunday would be good.
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ShikiIchijo on April 14, 2006, 06:14:34 PM
Sadly, Im not going as Kuro-pun. My friends and I never met up.
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ININ on April 16, 2006, 04:47:53 PM
The rules for a gathering is at least three people.  There has to be at least one Sakura >.<  Any Sakuras out there?

EvanX, when is your RO gathering?  My FMA gathering is on Saturday.  Any problems with a possible Sunday gathering?
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: Evangelion Xgouki on May 01, 2006, 11:50:53 PM
Sunday might work.  I'm checking to see when the RO gathering is gonna be, which I hope is Saturday.  And yes, we really need a Sakura-hime for this gathering or it won't be much of a TC gathering, huh?
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ININ on May 02, 2006, 11:59:46 AM
Change in FMA gathering.  FMA gathering is Sunday at 12:30 P.M.

Are you attending all four days?  I'm flexible on Saturday as of now *Hee, hee*  What's the latest on the RO gathering?

I checked cosplay.com and nobody is organizing a Tsubasa gathering.

Looks like someone is trying to organize a CLAMP gathering on Sunday.  Plus looks like there will be a TC Syaoran on Sunday.

hehe, that Syaoran would be...me! XD I'm looking forward to seeing any Tsubasa cosplayers at fanime and I encourage you to say hi and take pics with me~ XD, me rabu pics with other cosplayers. As a side note I'll be cosplaying as Sakura-hime koriyo version at AX!

Post by: Evangelion Xgouki on May 04, 2006, 02:36:36 AM
:!:  Heh, didn't notice that  :P .  I really hope that there's gonna be a bunch of cosplayers.  The more the merrier.  Plus I wanna see how many different names get called by as I walk around the 'con: Kuro-tan, Kuro-pun, Kuro-rin, etc  8)
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ININ on May 04, 2006, 07:55:29 AM
Yay!  We have at least three.  We can submit an official gathering.  Shall we make the gathering Tsubasa Chronicles or CLAMP?

Problem for me is I can't do it on Sunday.  It's going to be really tough because I already committed to FMA; although FMA keeps changing :shock: Also, I live in San Jose and not staying in a hotel.  I keep my options open.  I try to find a way.

Mokona is coming, too.  Watch out, Kuro-Pun!  *Hee, hee*

I'm going to be cosplaying as Fai.. if this gathering is still going on.  I'll probably just wear that to the CLAMP gathering too.
Title: Tsubasa!
Post by: ININ on May 05, 2006, 06:25:12 AM
I checked the cosplay.com forum http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=81540 The CLAMP gathering is heading towards Sunday around 1:00 P.M.  If so, then I can't make it.  FMA meets Sunday as 12:30 P.M.  :(

You could change reeeeally quickly :3

Post by: ININ on May 05, 2006, 06:13:59 PM
Good idea.  The problem is I don't have a hotel room.  I live 15 minutes away from the convention.  I rather spend the money in the dealers room  O:)
