Yeah I know mine went through, but now comes the waiting to see if I got in. I don't have high hopes though, one of my characters is an original so pretty much no hopes there. Primary character is Hige from Wolf's Rain. He is my main hope to get in. Oh well, I am an actor so I am used to the bitter sting of rejection.

Good Luck to every one ^_^.

I highly doubt my Kyonko would get in (how many people know of genderbend!TMoHS?) so I'm counting on Haruhi or Raito... both of which a bunch of other people probably entered for ;_;

...sooo if you're doing two costumes and want a better chance to get in, can I re-enter my other costume or will they count me as a different person so I might be doubled up?  :o

Since you have already entered, you can submit another cosplay if you want. ;)

We had a good turnout, and some really awesome entries.. it's a hard decision.. but I've got some ideas 8)

yeah, it's hard to imagine...this saturday...
well I did as asked Chole and entered my Tifa... T_T thought I don't think it's likely I'll get chosen, being an original spin. But, ah well!
At least I'll know going in, that no one who looks like me will walk by.

I think I'll re-apply. Esther's breakable, and I don't have a method of attacking with her any more. Demyx, Riku or Yuffie, everyone?

I would say Yuffie because there wont be many there. She is still a very well known character but not too many people cosplay her.

It's kind of hard for me to attack in that one... Or move my left arm above shoulder-height... I went for Demyx because it has the most impressive weapon, and I'll get fangirls screaming for me.

Yeah that is true too....I would just avoid Riku, there is going to be so many of them there x.x And I'm sure there is already one entered into the chess.

I went as KHII Riku three years ago.

I will never do it again.
Ever two seconds it was " OMG can you see through that!?" No, no I can't .The fact that I am facing you and walking through a crowded hallway without running into anyone/thing is pure luck.

Sakura's kinda tough for a technical attack... When I was Temari last year, I could throw my fan around and scream wind scythe jutsu..... but now all Sakura's got are plastic kunai.... this is gonna be entertaining.

Oh no.  All I did was sprain my ankle because I had little depth perception going down stairs.

It was worth it though because at the time I was with a Sora who of coarse asked " Can you walk"? I said I could and almost fell down again. XD

Priceless.

Yes it is. My eyesight isn't very good to begin with.

I don't know what kind of fabric your using but the stuff I used was ..weird  Even though it was obviously black, I could se better in the dark. Couldn't see crap in the light.

I can see pretty well at twilight-ish hours, or when it's sort of dreary out. If it's too light the light makes it so I have to strain. And hey, if it was dark out I'd seriously be blinder than Toph Bei Fong.

I know there's time, but just seeing that Jamiche is one of the people currently viewing this forum and has been for like five minutes makes me all antsy.
