    Aaaarrrrrhhhhhhh!!!! Nooooooooo!!!! :eek:

    I already got a costume to wear on that day and now the assistant project director said we can come in SW Costume? :eek: I'm torn. I'm torn between fulfilling my promise and following my first love in costuming . . .

    I'll think of something . . . I'll think of something . . .

    You're sure the others will not say anything about us coming in SW Costumes?

    And I wonder what you're gonna be . . . Kubi Knight, maybe? :D

    someone else go eh i don't want to be the only one there as a sw character...

    Heehee, I can always do the exposing act cause I'm too broke to do my Dec Cosplay Costume now whose Inner Gown is suppose to be used for this Sept one too. And I'm still in the SW Costume mood (haahaa, since when I'm not in the SW Costumes mood when I'm hanging out at the SW Costuming & Props Boards everyday ?)

    So, guess what is all White I gonna wear under my Cloak? :D

    Ps: Faiz, I probably can't join you guys over at #starwars any more cause my bro had cancelled the mIRC from his computer (says he want to install new games) and I still can't download it into my Notebook. :(

    Hope the boots arrive soon or you might have to wear high heels ones, like mine. ;) (My White boots is meant for my ANH Manga Leia, Padme Amidala and maybe even Stormie if it survive till then. :eek: )

    And a little something I learned about Neutral Instant Shoes Polish, it's actually yellowish! :(

    Oh my :eek:

    I want to see Thrawn! I want to see Thrawn! :D *started jumping up and down* He's one of my favourite character from the EU (other than Mara Jade, Kir Kanos, Corron Horn, Ulic . . . )

    So Sidious_101, which version are you trying to do and do you need any links to how it can be done? There's a great thread at the Costuming & Props side where Nostradamus was kind enought to post how she did her Imperial Officer one. The pattern she recommanded is also available at Spotlight (Simplicity 7274). ;)

    But what exactly is a COSPLAY?

    The nonsense I wrote about it for my future website:
    Cosplay (?ko-su-pu-re?) is something new that is gaining popularity all over the world, including Singapore. Cosplay is a Japanese Fan term for "Costume Play"-the activity where fans of animes, manga, games and also JRock (Japanese Visual Rock) dressed up as their favorite character/idol while attempting to be like them in term of actions, thoughts and words .

    It is the equivalent of Masquerade or Costuming usually done at major conventions like DragonCon or ComicCon.


    In other word, it's just like SW Costuming, only different is Cosplaying 99% of the time refers to anything Japanese or Korean or HK related.

    I just get into it for fun (after discovering a Local Mailing List on it) and may be out of the scene most of the time next year, in favor of my Zam. [face_plain]

    Last time on Ch U, they interviewed some Final Fantasy "COSPLAY" people in Singapore...

    So that's what it's all about...

    Thanks!

    Well, there is a total of 3 times when Cosplay was featured on the TV: Generation M(TCS8)which was heavily critized by the cosplay community cause it show Cosplay in a pretty bad limelight; Happy Rules which was recorded during one of the Miyuki Animation Club Anime Screening. I was wearing my Padme Battlesuit (Ver. 1.0) that afternoon so you can guess why I end up not in it :p ; and on the previous Sunday where in one of the segments in the TCS8 show, Arts TV, Cosplay was featured again, with interviews by the Commitee of the Singapore Cosplay Club and I was seen in the the show if you go frame by frame at the part they show the Cosplay Event at Orchard Cineplex. :p

    Anyhow, I'll need to stay away from it here and there next year onwards in favor of you-know-what-armor/costume. ;) My costume for this Dec event gonna drain off most of my money anyway. :(

    What happened to your Anakin Skywalker costume? ?[face_plain]

    I got my Imperial Royal Guard costume to offer as usual. It's consist of the (Unpainted?) Helmet, Outer Cloak, (Simple) Forcepike and Satin Gloves. Inner Robe, Obi, Rope Belt & Boots is if the wearer can fit into it (anyhow the wearer can just wear black or red or maroon suit and boots/high cut shoes underneath it). It'll fit someone around 1.52-1.55m tall and shoulder of about 17", I think.

    The Maroon Cloak (meant for TPM Coruscant Handmaid) will be fix soon (just need to redo the bottom, make the sides nicer and add the designs on front).

    And lately, I been trying to do some parts to make my usual Black Suit looks like what it was meant to be initially. :p Cut it out and now it look so . . . well, big. :eek: I think I really need to go and study sewing using commercial patterns soon.

    Hey DE,
    My AS costume was rented so I had to return it.(Duh)
    Any ways if you are offering the Royal guard cos. then I would gladly accept, unless of course you have other purposes for it.
    And Yes I am 1.5 and above and have shoulders of the required length.
    So how bout it would u lend it to a soul in need.

    Yazid_Skywalker, out of curiosity (since I'm assembling the list for Local SW Costuming), from where did you rent the costume and was it a Rubies one or customed made by the shop? :D

    Okay, then, my IRG had been reserved but be sure to confirm again with me again when nearing the day or I'll be stuck with that costume that day (hey! my bucket very precious you know. ;) ).

    Anyone else interested in coming but got no idea what to wear?

    yazid, remember me? i hope u can come
    DE LEND HIM SOMETHING PLS. =P

    actually if sid_101 goes as Thrawn, maybe ppl wont have any idea at all who the heck he is, since he's EU. maybe for just this once, he should come as Sidious once again.

    and DE, have u made up your mind? sw or anime cosplay?

    bobafet81: technically speaking, u can say most of us who dressed up during the epi2 season could be mentioned as cosplaying

    coz if none of u guys come, maybe i dun go at all in costume... -_-

    so i'm counting on u guys!

    Unfortunately, first come first serve for this one. :( I already "signed" up to do Angel Sanctuary's Sevothtarte in March so it's Anime/Manga.

    BUT, since I'm too broke to have my Inner Gown meant for the Dec Cosplay (and should had been used for this Sept one too) done now, I'll wear the full Padme Amidala White Battlesuit under Sevi-sama's Cloak. I'll probably come in it too so I'll do Padme for awhile in the beginning and end. :p

    So come in your Jedi Garb, lah Faiz. If you need to add more items to your belt, do tell me or go on a little hunt now. ;) Hope that Covertec will also arrive within the next 2 week too! (Note to self: Start doing the Comlink now!)


    actually if sid_101 goes as Thrawn, maybe ppl wont have any idea at all who the heck he is, since he's EU.

    IMHO, the problem is not so much of the people not recognizing him since half of those people can't understand SW anyway and 75-90% hasn't read the SW novels or comic; but the problem of the Facepaint. He may need to get one of the better quality one to make sure it don't stain his White Uniform.
