Anyone going to Anime Boston? Haven't been in years and it'd be cool to hang with some tf2 people. Hoping to get my femgie costume done by then.
We should set up a meeting place. For Friday?
Yeah we should. I don't really remember the convention are well, though. Where would you suggest?
Looks like people are planning on meeting at Au Bon Pain at 2pm on Friday and 11 am on Saturday so far
Anyone here going to Anime Matsuri? I'll be going as a BLU Engineer with Teddy Roosevelt included.
since Aussie cons are no where near on the scale of American ones, this thread is for all of them.
Supernova, Ozcomicion, Avcon, Manifest, Armegeddon and what have you.
i know i'll be at the first three at least
I'll be going to Supanova too - only the Sydney one though (I'll also be at Smash). I went to Armageddon once but it was really empty and very, very hot (especially in cosplay).
Oh! And I'll be dressed as BLU fem Medic or RED Soldier.
Is anyone going to PAX East this year? I'm going as a BLU femgie with a lunchbox-sized sentry. A meetup would be awesome.
I'll just leave this here.
No pictures? Over $2000? Well, I'm sure it'll sell.
haha! WHAT the fuck is this? I'll just stick to painting my own pin stripes or tailoring my own suit in the future...
Not sure if this is asked often, but I'm going to a convention soon, and I was wondering what would be a good suit to purchase for my Pyro cosplay? RED or BLU doesn't matter, though I'm a little partial towards RED. Thanks!
You can buy boilersuits on eBay for £15, which is what I did. Although it is a bit too dark.
Hi /cosplay/ I am planing to cosplay as BLU Spy for the mcm expo in may,
I'm just having a little trouble with some of the props
(Knife,Pistol,Sapper,Watch) So any advice on how to make/find these?
I am from the UK so any stores or places outside I might not be familar with.
Any help will be very appreciated.
I've seen toy guys in poundland, that could be painted to look decent, so it's worth a look OP.
For the knife, popsicle sticks work surprisingly well. You don't even have to shape one end into a point because from far away it looks like the real thing.
For my knife, I made it out of textured paper (which requires no coloring and has some good thickness to it), using a video I found on making a paper balisong. Other than that I added black electrical tape and used cotter pins to make it functional. Took me all of an afternoon to make once I managed to find the right materials (that paper being the biggest find).
The paper used was Strathmore's chrome paper, both black and silver.
I hate to get rid of any threads, but I want to know if anyone is going to DESTINation Anime in Destin on the 7th and 8th? I'm going as the Engineer so it'd be nice to see some fellow TF2 fans. (By the way the picture is the Hilton San Destin where the convention will take place.)
Aww shucks it ain't nothin'. Did you guys post the soldier's vlog?
I used to live out here, how long has this con been going?
Wow, how about I just ignore everyone ever.
No, it never got posted. There's no good reason why either, I just never did. If you'd still like to see it, I'll get it up asap.
This is the first time the Sukoshi crew has been to Destin, but it's Anime South's old stomping grounds. They've been rumored to start up again, but it's been just that, rumors.
Megacon 2012, Orlando Florida.
Who's going as what?
Red Scoot and Monsiuer BroCrab here, reporting that I had an excellent time derping around with y'all!
I was the female hunter that sneaked up on you guys! I had my plushie :3
If anyone still has the pictures they took of me, feel free to send them to my email. It's linked to my name.
I was the RED Sniper with the Jarate on Saturday, if y'all remember me
Hello Cosplay people... I wish to make a heavy and a medic costume(Red or Blu, I don't care)
I have absolutely no cosplay experience whatsoever, my Medic is flying in from Sweden, and I have a fluctuating budget that will go between a few hundred bucks and next to nothing. I want to have something ready by PAX this august... is there any hope for me, at all?
There's definitely hope for you. I know from experience that you can made a pretty good medic cosplay with next to no money (I'm broke as shit 100% of the time.) Especially if the con isn't until August. As long as you're willing to make everything yourself, take your time, and stalk some thrift stores, you can totally pull it off. The supplies for making medic's props aren't very expensive. The boots will probably be the most pricey part, unless you can thrift them. I can't tell you much about Heavy, though I imagine it's much of the same philosophy.
Dang, this is way easier then I thought thus far... I already have 75% of the heavy costume done. Your thrift store suggestion helped a TON. thanks Noni!
