Any Darker Than Black cosplayers going this year?

I'm wearing Yin on friday night. c:

Boooo. I'm planning Black Lynx on early Sunday. O:

Quoting because it got buried under another dicussion and I'd still like some help if anyone's willing to offer.

Is it possible/easy to stylize a wig and how?

I finally got the wig I ordered around a month ago. However, I'm not all that happy with the bangs.

This is my wig:

I think I have to cut the bangs shorter and some of the main hair shorter to go in the front. Is there some special way to cut wigs or can I just treat it like normal hair?

Also, she has that annoying little piece of hair standing up in the air like that. Is there anything I can do to replicate that?

Keep in mind I have absolutely no experience with wigs whatsoever. ^^;


Basically, yes, you do cut it like regular hair, except with one idea in mind: It WONT grow back. So you do so carefully. :3  

The way I do it, is put the wig on, and mark with a sharpie at a point a little longer than what I want it to be (For bangs, at least). I then take it off and put it on a wig head, and make a really rough, blunt cut straight across that length. So, yes, now the bangs are shorter, but they're probably not as short as you want them, and they will be cut really roughly, and look quite bad.
Then what I do is I take my scissors (I use something like these: http://www.guystyleguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/small-scissors.jpg which are meant for cosmetic/hair things, and are easier to use when it comes to managing wigs) and I cut vertically, or at a slight angle. The idea of this is to thin the edges so you have less of a rough cut, and more so bangs that look how normal hair looks.

Basically going for a look that looks like: http://shessmart.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/short-red-wig-with-bangs.jpg

instead of: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zxeC5jkbvzw/TdGOCkvOqmI/AAAAAAAAAKs/B9uzSLpfnLo/s1600/IMG_0442.JPG

After you thin out the ends a bit (you could also use thinning shears), it should look a lot nicer than if simply cut straight across. But also, thinning it out this way will make them a bit shorter, and so after they look good on the wig head (again, careful to not make them too short), put the wig back on and see if they are an ok length. If too long, put it back on the wig head and trim vertically again.

Sorry if that's really confusing. u_u;;

For the ahoge, all it seems it would need is a good helping of hair gel (Got2Be Glue is what a lot of people really like to use). Cut it to the right length, and then lather it with the gel, and take a hairdryer to it as you shape it. That SHOULD be enough, however, if it's not, you would use wire to keep it up.

For future reference, here's a whole boatload of tutorials on just about everything: http://cosplaytutorial.com/list.php

I arrived at the hotel/con in time, but the gathering started like a half hour early. D: I could have possibly made it but the hotel lost our bags and it took 45 minutes for them to get it up to us. ;3; I'm disappointed that I couldn't make it, but it looked like fun from where I could see from my hotel window (salt to the burn hurrr). ;;

Could I request Ookina Ai de Motenashite? Even though it's not really a vocaloid song, it's got'a cute dance to it. ouo

OH. MY. GOSH.
I SECOND THIS TO THE 10TH POWER~~~~
YOU READ MY MIND GIRRRRL. ;D

<3 Bahahaha. Yay.

I heard something about no free-hanging chains. Does this count? -- http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_leryoq2rl71qeqezm.png    (the chain coming off the collar).

Bump!

Noting and keeping your music requests in mind; thanks everyone! :3

On the subject of a possible time change; sorry guys, but I think it should be left as-is at 5 pm. Thing is with those of you who are traveling from a bit of a distance, keep in mind that it is a holiday weekend and therefore, especially with those of you who won't be leaving until after school, there's a pretty good chance you'll hit traffic. So even if I move the time an hour later, I'm not sure if all of you guys would still be able to make it. ._. And considering you guys probably will have to check in at your hotels and probably go pick up your badges as well... It just seems like either way, you'd be cutting it close if you managed to arrive on time. @_@; I'd also hate to have a time change conflict with anyone else's plans (considering last year there was a FLOW concert around the same time as last year's 6 pm gathering, for example) or cause confusion.

I really do want to hang out and take pictures with all of you guys! But there really isn't a time that benefits every single person, and I hope you all understand my reasoning. If anyone would like to give further input on the matter I'd be happy to listen. <3

Love to all the Vocaloid cosplayers!! <3

I personally wasn't going to get my badge until after the gathering, and hotel check in shouldn't take very long. Sure if it's moved an hour later, we still might not make it right on time, but it'd give us a chance to get there while it's still happening instead of after people disperse. :c

ohohoh. And Happy Synthesizer. C:~

Unconfirmed! But...I plan to be Dell Honne.

Le gasp! What's this?! There is no one else cosplaying Dell Honne on the list?! >:O I see you people need me hehehe.

Btw, for songsss, I definitely think there should be Fukkireta and Love & Joy. o3o

I totally second this! BWAHA.
I might end up dancing to both songs. >u>;

And if this wasn't added yet, I'd also like to add the song Aitai by Gumi.
Idk... I've been in love with that song for a while. ;w;

I'll be dancing with you. o3o~

And that song is love <3

My school ends a little before three on Friday, and I live up in Marin, a half hour-ish from San Francisco.. I wouldn't be able to probably even get to the con by five, much less drag luggage into the hotel and change into cosplay. Is there any way to change the time until later, say, 6? ;3;~
