Otakon!!! And Photo-Op for all cosplayers!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 22, 2011, 4:16 PM
Otakon update!!! Just a few more days before Otakon! Feeling pretty good, not panicking. I'm trying to get my femlink done on time.  Everything else I have done! Except zelda's wig styling but that would take like two seconds.

Whose going to be there!?  And if you are, what are you cosplaying (if you are!) Holler at me if you see me and tell me your name! ^_^

Costume list
:bulletyellow: Princess Serenity
:bulletyellow: Usagi school uniform
:bulletyellow: Zelda Skyward Sword
:bulletyellow: Terra
:bulletyellow: Courtesan
:bulletyellow: FemLink

FOR THOSE GOING TO OTAKON

There is going to be an awesome photographer at the con in the dealers room named Droo.  He is responsible for the majority of my first shots of my Sailor Moon pics.

Hey, I took some of ~DROOphotographer's shots above! :D Specifically the 1st (collage), 4th and 6th shots; these were taken at the Montreal Comiccon. The 5th shot was taken (not by me) also in Montreal, Canada, at #Otakuthon. DROO attends every major convention within driving distance of his location, and I see him fairly often (should I say, at almost every con I go to?). :D He has a very wide network of convention contacts and enjoys warm relationships with cosplayers and other cosplay photographers.

When you go to a con and mention DROO, someone in the crowd knows him! ;)

oh, i KNOW droo XD he and I are really good buddies. He lets me know if he comes to any of the USA cons. I've wanted to try to get to a Canadian one to help him but its really tough for a little cosplayer like myself ^^

If you want to travel far for a con while saving substantial amounts of money, I strongly suggest you find (or form) a convention travel group. I traveled with a group of 20 Canadians to Otakon a few weeks ago. [link] We rented a mini-bus for that occasion. 8D A/C broke down 1 hr after we left our town, and, being painted in a very dark shade of blue, unable to open windows and driving through record high heat, it felt like an oven inside our bus during both our go-trip and our return-trip. :x

Otakon '11 was the hottest con I've ever been to. Summer cons in Canada are also hot, but not as hot as Otakon was. I'm glad I had a hotel near the con center, and I always ate my meals at my hotel room, my haven of peace, coolness and privacy, away from the heat, noise and crowdiness of the con. :D

We have conventions all year long in Canada. Take your pick (AnimeCons.com): [link] It's about the same as traveling to other cons in the U.S., plus you must have a passport and have Canadian money ($CAD); knowing a bit of our culture and traditions and knowing a bit of French are optional. :) Electrical standards are the same, so all your chargers for your electronic devices will also work here. Please though, try to limit your usage of cellphone voicecalls and text messages when you're out of the country, and disable mobile data roaming to prevent sky-high charges to your phone bill... When I was at Anime Boston '11 back in April, I abused mostly text messaging and ended having to pay an extra $75 on that month's bill!

DROO was suppposed to come with me to Anime Boston but he couldn't at the last minute. He was also my backup ride to Otakon but I found that travel group before he got his Otakon photo booth confimation. He'll be at Fan Expo this weekend (2nd & 9th shots above) and I'll see him again at the Montreal Comiccon next month!

I really hope I see you, and I'll keep your list in mind/keep an eye out!

Not too many people are familiar with it, but I'm going to be a guy named Kageno Jin from Inazuma Eleven, a secret costume otherwise, and wearing a Stitch Kigurumi on Sunday C:

I know, one week! *Squeeeee!*
My costume list (as of now) is:
-Zelda from Skyward Sword
-Yomi from Azumanga Daioh (summer fuku)
-Dark Chii/Freya from Chobits

I still need to make the tops for the summer uniforms for my oldest and myself, and make some accessories for our Chii costumes, but feeling pretty good progress wise! Oh and finish Zelda's belt XD
I'll be there with my 3 kids, the youngest is going as Windwaker Link, so say 'hi' if you see me before I see you ^_^

I'm excited to see how you did everything too XD I will most definitely see you at one of the zelda shoots. I will have to squeal at your kids ^^ i love em in cosplay.

I think you've told me already (i can be forgetful, that is why i fit sailor moon ;))but what did you for the belt?

LadyAltara Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2011
It's canning jar lids that I hammered so they curve outward a bit, spray painted them (well, still doing that, it's been too hot for the spray D:), hot-gluing pin backs to them and then pinning them onto ribbon/cord. Hopefully I won't have any problems once I get them all painted (stupid heat wave) :)
Also, I may not be at the Sat photo shoot if it's too hot, cause of the kids ;)

THATS right, sorry i'm scatter brained lol. yea i know this heat is killlerrrr, i was trying to paint my sword and its soooo hot it just doesn't want to dry properly!

I understand! I wish i could stay more in my zelda stuff. I truly like it, and its sooooooo much easier to walk around in. *smirks* compared to the 100 inch dress and the 4 inch heels...both killer
