AKB0048
« on: May 30, 2014, 04:10:01 pm »
So is anyone instrested in doing an AKB0048 group or photoshoot. My sister and I want to cosplay and Yuko and Takamina from AKB0048. We don't have are costumes yet and we are gonna either make, buy, or commission them. Does anyone have experience buying these costumes or making them or commissioning them. I do not want to buy from china just because they do not have specific sizes at least the ones I looked at on ebay. If you could help me out that would be wonderful.
Smile!!! : )

Awesome I'll see whT I can do. I think Takamina will be easier to pose for, but I like Makoto more but have no idea how to look good posing as her. I can't do the freaking out thing without looking too fake. But Takamina is gonna be hard because using long ponytails hurts my head. Lol. I'd do Yuko but not only are you already, but I just don't care haha Maybe another successor. I like a few. Like I like nyan-nyan and Yukurin.

Yes we are any of you guys going to Newcon or Sakura con I will be Yuko at both cons. Newcon might be a little to close. If you guys need recommendations on where to buy the costume I have a good site but the only sell yuko so you would have to make some adjustments since all the successors have different skirts.

Yes we DO need to have an AKB shoot. That'd be fun. But I don't think I can make it for Sakuracon and I can't attend newcon. Kumoricon is the only con that's far away that I can attend..It's too much gas to drive to this one and back AND new con. I can only afford one far con a year. I'm close enough to Sakura and Aki that I if I miss those, I don't get a replacement con.


I'll try to find you at sakura though.

If you are done with your cosplay (or if not, when you ARE) you should post a picture so I know what you look like. Makes it easier to find a person if I have their picture..I mean I know what Yuko looks like, obviously, but there may be more than just you.

lol That sounds good then. I'll still see what I can do about Sakuracon.


So do you no longer have your Takamina then? You said you had one this year but then when I mentioned wanting to you said you needed one now..Just wanna know..Also, which outfit are you doing? Since the pic won't post you can just link me to a pic of Yuko in the outfit you do.

Ah you mean this one:
http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130310204134/akboofourtyeight/images/d/de/Yuko82.jpg
?
That's the one they use the most..
I plan that one so that's good..
The full Takamina will be like this:
http://static.tumblr.com/7fcc349937ab98fce0e6859a2c305682/uqliekf/W79mt1i60/tumblr_static_250.jpg


I might be able to talk my friend into a cosplay too. She likes cute outfits..I wonder who she could do though..I told her to watch it so..Anyway, I think Takamina it is then since you guys think so too. But if I can't get a wig that will stay on my head (like I said, ponytails like to hurt me) I will change it to Yukirin, Nyan-Nyan, or maybe even Mayuyu..

Sorry to double post..But....
I just finished season 2 for the second time..I totally forgot how cute Yukirin's dance training outfit is..I mean look at this:

Tell me hers isn't the cutest one?


Update too..I also talked with that friend I have..I guess it wasn't her that I told to watch it..She already has..And loves it..She is doing Acchan..lol So there ya go i guess haha
I've also been looking around for a Yukirin wig. Since I can't wear the china wigs like from ebay and stuff, I have to look at the big US stores. Arda has the perfect color, magenta, but of course, it doesn't come in a wig that will work..lol

Ohh man good luck finding a wig since you can't do the ebay china ones. That's where I got my yuko wig. It was my first experience buying a wig from china and on ebay. The other wigs I have I got from wigland in portland. Have you tried looking at epic cosplay wigs. The have longer wigs the arda does but still a great selection maybe you will find one that works for you. Also I could totally make Yukos practice outfit.

First I'll state that the sellers on eBay isn't the problem. It's the size. They are all too small. They are made for Chinese people who generally have smaller heads than the western countries. So they don't even fit.

Second yes she does. In season 2 they show it more. Yuko and Tsubasa both talk about acchan and have flashbacks of them all training. Acchans is similar to takaminas, but different colors.


EDIT:
Sorry, wrote all that on mobile haha I'll go further into it..
Arda and epiccosplay and thefivewits are the only brands of wigs that fit me..So it doesn't matter how trustworthy a wig seller on ebay is, when they don't fit my head in the first place. They could be the top seller on the planet, but that doesn't make them fit my head..See? lol It's very annoying because there are lots of better colors that way, but it's pointless..


As for Acchan, this is her training outfit:



The skirt thing is like most of the other girls' skirts where it doesn't fully attach all the way around, it's simply held in place where the bow sits.


By the way, I didn't get an answer..The picture I linked to (not Acchan) of the outfits, is that the one you were talking about doing?

Sorry, yet ANOTHER double post here..lol


Anywho, there's someone on here that said they are down to cosplay AKB too. I told him about you, MISS CENTER!! YUKO-SAN!! And I told them about me and my friend too.. It's a crossplayer. You may have seen him this year. His crossplays were very nice.


Mountain View, are you doing Acchan then? WE will have 2, since my friend is also doing her, but I don't mind. That way we still have one when one decides to disappear into the Center Nova voidy-portaly thingy..


Also, I'm so torn..Yukirin is so adorable and sweet, but Takamina will bring this whole group together..I think I'm gonna settle with Takamina though..At least I KNOW I can get that wig haha


EDIT (No need to make a dang 3rd post lol):
I talked with wnother person that wants to be our Mauyuyu. She said she may not be finished by Sakuracon, but didn't mention Kumoricon, the way I worded it, and she worded it, it sounds like she will hopeully get it done by next kumori at least. That'll be awesome. Already 5 people.

Oh, no. I mean he crossplays in general. As in when he finally does an akb character it's going to be crossplay.

This is going to be so cool next year!!!! I got my costume from cosplaysky.com but they only have Yuko so some modifications will have to be done on the skirts of the other AKB0048 characters if your going for accuracy. I recommend that you do the custom sizing cause I did not and the skirt ended up being to small for me but I was able to fix it by making a new waist band. Would it be cool if you guys learned some of the dances and then we could perform it as a group there are few dance tutorials on youtube I could post it here for you guys if you want to learn.

That looks great. You already have a message with my talk about that site so I won't bring that up here. But they are all the same outfit. The only differences are accessories like how Takamina has 2 bows holing her ponytail up that match the outfit. Anyway I have a suggestion for ya. Wear a petticoat under the skirt. Yours lays very flat. You can get a black one from Halloween stores right now and any other time by leg avenue. It'll make the skirt poofy like theirs

Yeah I have been looking for a petticoat for another cosplay I just don't want to spend $20 on it so I will probably make one. I really liked the skirt just by itself but yes it will poof out more with a petticoat. I will personally be learning the dances cause I really want to but it would be so cool if you guys learned one of them too. Aitakatta is the easiest dance to learn. http://youtu.be/urYj1PQrE5M here is a link to the dance tutorial if you guys want to learn it.

Oh yea the dances. Forgot to reply about that. No I can't. I have nowhere to practice. I live upstairs and am not allowed to do things like that because it rattles the house (old house. Really old) so I can't.


However, if I DID wanna do a dance, It's most lileky be River. That's now like my favorite song..It WAS Heavy Rotation, but the more I listened to River, the more I liked it..But OMG I can NOT get Heart Gata Virus outta my damn head..It's so annoying, but so freaking catchy..

I love River the dance is amazing and so is the song. I even know a dance tutorial for it. I am thinking for next Kumroicon I might submit a dance panel and teach the AKB0048 dances along with other dances. http://youtu.be/2WCqMLxoqd8 here the dance tutorial link for it on Youtube. My personal goal is to learn all the dances by Kumoricon because I dance all the time and I would love to add dance to another aspect of my cosplay. You guys don't have to learn them I just thought it would be cool if we all did a group dance together.

I know that vid lol I was gonna watch it tonight, since all the cover dances are mirrored only..I think they aren't legally allowed to be put online since they aren't IN the group (I mean the dance cover videos, those people are just random and not IN akb so). But it's annoying to learn from a mirrored video because you not only are reversed, but learning it that way makes it harder to get it right the correct way lol I didn't see if the tutorials are mirrored though..


But yea, if you host that panel, I'll do my best to come.
Oh, I know it would. I WANT to learn them to dance at con. Just can't practice..Also need to for some Vocaloid songs but again..can't..

The tutorial is mirrored to make it easier for the people learning the dance. She goes on to explain in detail which hand you use while she uses the opposite hand. So she would say you use your right  hand but she will mirror it with her left hand. So you are learning the correct dance she is just doing it in front of you. Mirroring the dance lets people see the hand movements and stuff like that and know that they are doing it right. Yes I know some dances are mirrored for copyright or whatever but in this tutorial she is teaching you the correct movements and directions of the actual dance only she is mirroring it. Im just trying to clarify it so your not confused just because the dance tutorial says mirrored. Yeah but hopefully I will do a dance panel at Kumoricon I also need to learn the vocaloid dances so many to learn luckily I have a year to do it.

Oh, no what I mean it that in a tutorial, they will say "move your right hand like this" move your left like this" and so on, so you HEAR which hand goes where. Makes it much easier to learn..If you watch a mirror with no instruction, you see the left hand in the right's position, and get confused because you are copying them and their hand because there is no voice to direct what goes where CORRECtlY..See what I mean? Yea anyway, that place on etsy you mentioned to get the outfit, they look amazing, and are affordable. I'll be buying from there. They even have a Takamina one that comes with the bows..And I didn't even notice the outfits are a little different..Shows how much I see..lol It's a little hard to tell though when they are moving around so much haha

Im glad that place worked out for you. Don't worry about not noticing the differences in the outfits I am just super observant and I notice little details like that since I love fashion. I probably would have bought from that place but I found it after I already bought from cosplaysky.

Yea, well they don't work for me just yet..I haven't bought anything from them before so I don't know..I hate buying things from places like that..They aren't commissioned so you know they are all pre made..Meaning they just kinda put random sizes together to look like they "stuck with your measurements"..Out of all 5 places I bought cosplays from that were a cosplay buying site, all 5 of them did not use the measurements I gave them. Every single one just put random sizes together and called it good.

Hey guys so unforuntely esty seller named Haodao does not have the AKB0048 costumes anymore. So if you were considering getting one from there you out of luck. You can contact the shop owner and see if they will be back soon hopefully by Kumoricon. In other news how are our guys doing. Has anyone started there outfits yet. I found a tutorial on how to make the mics for the girls minus the saber part. I will be making it tomorrow and I will let you guys know my process and how things went.

I know a costume place that you can commission your AKB0048 Takamina costume from. I know when I was looking into buying my Yuko costume I posted on several cosplay forms and Haus of Thread Costume said they could make it if I commission them.  There information is on facebook under Haus of Thread Costume. You could possibly talk to them about make a Takamina costume.

I know when I was looking into buying my Yuko costume I posted on several cosplay forms and Haus of Thread Costume said they could make it if I commission them.  There information is on facebook under Haus of Thread Costume. You could possibly talk to them about make a Takamina costume.
Do they have another form of contact? I don't use facebook for anything outside of scheduling sakuracon photoshoots. How much did they quote you?

Here is there email haus.of.thread.costume@gmail.com. Also here is there blog http://hausofthreadcostume.blogspot.com/. I never emailed them for a quote because right after they commented I found the Yuko costume I wanted. I hope this works out for you.
Smile!!! : )

Ok well best of luck. I am also starting to create more of my own costumes but I am still beginning at it so that is why I personally brought my AKB0048 costume.

That makes sense. Everyone is at that point at one time or another. I know there are plenty of patterns that I can use for the outfit becasue a lot of it IS normal, its just normal different things, mixed together..lol


Since I still haven't baught anything, I'm still wondering if I should do Takamina or Yukirin..lol I still can't find a wig that will fit my head that is the right color for Yukirin..

Takamina it is..NO one has a damn Yukirin wig..I know for a fact I can get a Takamina one regardless becasue Arda has the exact color..


Anyway, My friend is still wanting to do Acchan so that's good too..I think I'll have to figure out a different outfit though..I seriously can NOT make that plaid one..and Idk anyone that can on a lower budget..That's a lot of work since there are so many pieces..Like it'll cost more for Plaid lapels on a red vest than it would to just make a top with it's oewn lapens in one piece like the solid colored outfits..

I know I know..3 posts in a row..What's new there haha


Anyway, Acchan and I both agreed on doing the Shoujotachi Yo outfits. You may remember these (if you don't know the some) from episode one. After they sing Aitakatta, the DES starts attacking, then they sing and fight to the song Shoujotachi Yo. Their outfits change to white ones. Yea those..I'm gonna make us both at least one Mic Saber (If you want one Yuko, I'll make you one if you can spare a little cash for it, lights are expensive, if you can do $20 I'll make it for you). I can do 2 each, but it'll get pricy..I'll see what I can do..If I make you (Yuko) 2, I will need at least $40..Or we can message and see what we can do, but they WILL light up). I also am gonna try to make it so that I can throw my bow like in episode one, you know, the taser bow lol. If I can that'll be funny.

That sounds cool. Sorry I haven't been on here for a while. I will consider your mic saber offer. I will let you know after Sakura-con if I would want one. I wanna try making just the regular mic first and see how that works for me.

I will be in Yuko most likely Sunday of Sakura-con if you see me feel free to come up say hi and introduce yourself. If you are going to Sakura-con that is. Also if you did make Takamina's bow that would be awesome.

So I found out the hard way that the mic sabers are REALLY hard to make..Really it's the actual head of the mic that's hard, not the rest..It's annoying becasue they aren't the same shape as real mics. I can still do it, it's just annoying..


And I will be at Sakuracon. On sunday I'll be Spirit from Soul Eater.
Look for, probably, the only spirit cosplayer with scythe pieces in my arms and back, like this:
http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/056/3/d/I_am_his_weapon__by_SpiritAlbarn.jpg


If you see me any other time during con, I'll be
friday:
Sora
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3531027/
I may have a better, slightly darker wig. But the same keyblade. I'll be him till 8.
Squall for the FF shoot at 8pm then the rest of the night (FF8 Ver):
http://www.supergiftsaustralia.com.au/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/1000x1000/7da2d79c1278833366dc13c53302a1b5/s/q/squall_leonhart_character.jpg


Saturday:
Chandelure gijinka from Pokemon (My progress so far anyway):
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3536643/
then Dissidia Squall at the 8pm ff shoot this day (both shoots are the same time each day):
http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101216073753/finalfantasy/images/d/d9/Dissidia_Squall.png
Then after that shoot I'll be Chandelure again.
Then Sunday Spirit like i said.


So if you see me let me know you are the Yuko cosplayer if you aren't in Yuko when you see me.

I am gonna try this tutorial soon and see if I can make a mic with it. Its a picture tutorial but she does include the lengths of each piece though you can change it a bit for your hand size.

That helps so much lol
I didn't know the right pattern shape for the head piece. But that showed what it looked like so I can do it now. I'm using cardboard and PVC pipe though. Then I'll be trying to figure out the light up saber part.

Mmk....So IU decided to watch AKB again....Yea..Again lol Like I haven't watched it enough..It's been a while..Shh..


Anyway, now I'm back in the mindset of "F*CK!! I need to FINALLY cosplay Takamina now....Get this over with lol
I'll be talking to our darling little Acchan later today (it's technically saturday since it's past midnight haha) when I get up. See if it's still possible for that cosplay to happen..
Also, I been wondering how many No Name cosplayers there are out here..I really would love the chance to cosplay Makoto with other members of No Name.

So adding to this cosplay group. My sister eishamrell above got me to agree to be mimori as markio. So I will be cosplaying Mariko the eighth. I can't wait to cosplay her since the Mimori as Mariko is my favorite character in the series.

Sadly, I may actually not be able to do this..yet again..I MIGHT, but I can't promise anything. It'd still be Takamina since god forbid there be a wig that works for Yukirin....
