  1. Tentacle Selling! Booyah!

  2. Katie Bair is not taking character wig commissions, it's stated on her website. And if you're looking to add black to the bottom of the wig, you could always buy, or make, black hair wefts and sew them into the wig. Using this method would involve no dying at all. And the sharpie method or FW ink dying methods actually work really well. The secret to those methods is to rinse really really well.
  3. I'm just upset that the tee-shirts sold out. I've gotten one every year I went to the con, but this year ran out when I finally got to go to the dealers room.
  4. Wake up, usually around 6am or earlier. Darn internal alarm clock set way, way too early. Hit hotel gym for a bit. Shower, grab some breakfast, watch some news. Wake everyone else in the process of getting into my costume. Enjoy con...
  5. I talk to people and I pictochat. Funny thing, I ended up traveling to another part of the country months later after the con and our waiter in a restaurant was like "I know you from somewhere." And I was like huh? And then he remembered we had talked to each other in line waiting for the masquerade. He even remembered what costume I was wearing. lol. I wish I had a memory like that, but it was funny how he remembered.
  6. Otakon doesn't set up cosplay photos or photoshoots. The cosplayers do and like the post above you're better off checking cosplay.com for that schedule and locations of such shoots. Check Here: http://www.cosplay.com/forumdisplay.php?f=12 They do however have a photosuite where you can get your picture taken and purchase prints. You can find information for that on this thread: /index.php?showtopic=15015&hl=photosuite">http://board.otakon.com/index.php?showtopi...p;hl=photosuite
  7. No, our hotel is outside of downtown Baltimore... and the costume is not very seatbelt friendly. I guess can put the seatbelt/sitting inhibiting parts on in the parking garage. Yeah I might just need to grit my teeth a bare it and hope that I don
  8. Do you have a hotel room close by or is it some distance? I have bulky costumes but they've never posed an issue and I just suck up the fact that it's hot and get myself to the con center. But I also have friends who act as handlers to help me move. However, if you're at a point where the size is too big to get in the doors, you might want to partially wear the costume and just friends lug the extra pieces until you can get them on in the con center area.
  9. That sounds like fun. What type of cosplayers are you looking for? And when would you be conducting these interviews. I'm involved with events on saturday but would be more than willing friday or sunday.
  10. Thanks for the reply, I always get nervous that my entries don't go through cause I've known that to happen in years past.
  11. Did confirmation emails start going out for the HCC? I filled out the form the first day it went up, and I hadn't heard anything, but my friend who applied several days afterward said she already got her confirmation. Just nervous that my application got lost again.
  12. If memory serves me right, she would definitely be entered in the Youth category. As for rules, Otakon's Hall and Masquerade rules are very similar to most costuming contests, and since your stepdaughter is a Youth, I think she would need to be accompanied by an adult.
  13. Many cosplayers post their plans over at cosplay.com under the Otakon thread. Photoshoots are also arranged there as well. And it should be no problem finding other Akatsuki members during Otakon.
