Going to a con? Working on a costume? Showing off a new toy you got? This is the place!
NO SELLING ALLOWED!!!
The lovely blueangel06661 suggested it would be a good idea to have a thread about cosplay tips and resources and such so here goes! Please feel free to add your own or ask questions. I'm certainly not an expert on cosplay, but after a few years, here's some things I've learnt.
Let's start with...
1. Ignorance of the rules is no excuse for breaking them.
2a. If you are going to start a con thread, please have a link to the cons main page as the first thing in your post.
b. If you are going to make a post about a specific convention, and there is a thread about that...

Note: If for some reason, the admins find that this thread should not belong as its own thread, feel free to merge it with my other thread.
I created this thread for a reason. It's a continuation of my other panel (which is the categories part), where this is going to be the setting up part.
Ok, one day i:m going to go to a con, but if I did, what would I want to bring money wise? (That includes pay for hotel and buying stuff) 500? 750? 1000?

I crossplay. I only crossplay. And of course, naturally, I face the same problem every time: I'm not a man. I've depended on binding for a while, and boy are the results sweet. For the price of comfort (considering I get...

Anyone here been there? It's a huge convention type event held in Japan with self published works, anime stuff, and of course cosplay. Lots of cosplay (mostly women). Then again, go to any anime con in the world and find that most cosplayers are indeed female.

This is my biggest pet peeve at conventions. These are people that...
Hey all. My buddy David really wants me to go with him to his first Fur-Con, but I don't know if it's worth my time or not. I'm not really into the Furry fandom, so I was hoping to get some other opinions. If you've gone, please share your experiences and opinions, good or bad.
I know there's a community of people here that play video games by Blizzard Entertainment(World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo), and I was curious to know if anyone is going to their yearly convention in October.
