Hey snakes and snakettes!

So I was thinking it would be a fun thing to have a whole Bizenghast cosplay group at Nekocon this year. Nekocon is November 7-9 and here's the address for all you MapQuesty types: 1610 Coliseum Dr., Hampton, VA 23666

Their website is here: www.nekocon.com

I'm hoping :iconwintersknight: can wear her awesome Maggie Murdoch, and me and my friend Krys shall be wearing our Dinah and Vincent costoooomes.  Would anyone else like to get in on this? I'd love to have a Nareesha, an Edaniel, maybe a few ghosties...it'll be a blast!

Leave a note if you'd like to do a specific character! For now we have the following:

Dinah-TAKEN
Vincent-TAKEN
Edaniel-free
Edrear-free
Nareesha-free
Maggie Murdoch-TAKEN
Aunt Jane-free (I wish my sister could come, she's the one I named Aunt Jane after, and she looks like her!)
Addie Clark-free
Bali Lali-free
IXI-free (if someone wants to borrow my own IXI costume, they can!)
Various ghosties-Free
Skidwidget!-free


In other news, my latest project is a photoshoot for the spring 2009 Gothic and Lolita Bible!  Yay!  :iconwindaria: and :iconotakutre: will also be in it, go them!  We're all looking forward to it.  But I guess I have to work out some more before we shoot, because I've been laying around between shoots, eating cakes and gummis and generally becoming a flubby Marty.  So I will have to un-flubby myself before that happens!  :gets out DDR pad:  I swear by DDR, it's the only exercise I can do that doesn't bore me to death!

More updates as they occur!

Mags will definitely be there being awesome. In other news... I really hope my rat (who is sitting on my shoulder right now) isn't chewing through my new dread extensions. The end.

That's ok if he is.. he's too cute to be mad at. He's finally gotten to the point where he's feeling safe enough to eat baby food while sitting on my shoulder!

But.. yes, back on subject.. I just have to try and get a bunch of moneys together so I can afford my hotel room at Neko Con, I've got it reserved, but the life of a college student is a poor one. I should manage though.

I wonder if I can think of a way to make Maggie even. . . better.. like turning my feets into hooves or something.

Oh, how I would love to make it to Nekocon, but October is turning up to be my busy month. I did however, manage to finish Nareesha for Connecticon and managed to bring it down for Dragon*Con. (Man, I gotta add that to my cosplay.com profile)

I hope to see you around for an autograph!

My friend Lucinda and I have always wanted to make some of the ghosties costumes and whatnot and this would've been the PERFECT occasion for that but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to get tickets, have the money, or the time to go TT_TT the world can be so cruel sometimes...oh well

For Edrear, is his armor like leather or something harder? Also is the material that hangs gauzy or more solid like linen? I am hoping to do him for a few cons this fall.

Well, I'd most DEFINTELY be Edaniel if I could.

Let's all face it, I'm the only one who could truly do him justice.

xD Who's the one with the 'Edaniel' account on deviantART, after all?

But I don't know where this nekocon is, and for goodness sakes, knowing where you usually end up going, it'll be somewhere in the states and WAY out of my range... *tear*

I would love to cosplay Edrear, but I'll have to see about finances. There's a good chance I have somewhere to stay if I decide to go, but getting down there/registration would be an issue....maybe.

I've adored Edrear's design as a whole since you first introduced him, but more than anything I love his armor. It's so nifty.

Ooh, I just realized I don't think I have a wig that would work for Dinah. You got one in your closet? I need to give you those whitish ones back anyway.

Also Morgan wants to know if we're still doing Sailor Royales for AUSA. I kinda forgot about that, hahaha.

yesh ma'am, i gots that crazy expensive human hair wig for Di that I used to use, so it can be styled just right.

sure, we's still doin that! you're still in as Aurora, right? who was Morgan gonna be?

Does Morgan want to be in the BZG group mebbe? We need an Edrear! :D I asked Deeg if she wants to wear my IXI for it, since she'll be CRAZY CUDDLY in that costume. :)

Morgan isn't going to Neko and she also told me she's backing out of Sailor Royales because her schedule is too tight. Maybe we should push it to Katsu or something, because I won't be able to get off work for Friday and I will probably only spend Sat-Sun down there. Same for Neko.

WHY AM I TYPING YOU THIS? I CAN CALL YOU LATERS!

I won't be able to make it to Nekocon, but I have been wanting to cosplay Nareesha since I first saw her in volume two. I know that you have no plans to color your picture of her here in your gallery, but I was wondering if you could give me some insight to her overall color scheme. I was also wondering about her neck piece: Is it a decorative collar that drapes over her shirt, or is there a line where the decoration on the shirt begins and the necklace ends?

Sorry to bother you with all the questions. I just want to try and be as faithful to her design as possible. :heart:

sadwonderland Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2008
[link] here's the sari I based it on, so that's the color and the shirt matches the same.

the necklace isn't attached to the blouse, its jsut the same color as the shirt's trim. heres a crappy quick color job! [link]

Aw, man...I'd love to go as a ghostie. But the parentals wouldn't be big on it...I'd have to con Mira 'n her parents to take me. XD

I could almost make a good IXI...and I've always loved Her Little Ladyship...signed up on one of the Bizenghast forums under that name...

Sadly, I will probably not get to go. Virginia is not Ohio.

Awwww, damnit!! Why does this always happen.. and i can never be part of exciting bizenghasty things! :C

(perhaps because I live in australia..)

I just wanted to let you know I finally bought book 5 of Bizenghast today, it blew me away, as always :D

And and also, I was wondering if you could give some tips to cosplaying, since I really love some of the designs in the manga, and i may make them when I finish school in a few months~! : D
