I would like to try this. nodnod Not sure which cosplay to do this for but I'll think of something. :think: Not my contest one, I think I'd die if I tried to attempt THAT in 48 hours! X_X

Quote :
Would any CCCers be keen to partake in a sewing party for this (or a small section of it), whenever it may be?


I would love to form/join a group for this, I think I would cope much better and actually get more motivated if I was in a group. sweatdrop nodnod We can cheer each other on, yay! cheers

I don't suppose we would be allowed to work on an already started one but I guess that would be cheating . *Gets bricked and runs away* sweatdrop Razz

Thanks for the motivation Jen, a challenge is always good encouragement. (For me anyway). thumbsup nodnod

One question on the rules - is making a mockup beforehand, if none of your actual materials are touched, okay?

You can do the challenge for yourself in your own time, but you can't really take part in the thread here as it would just be confusing for people to be posting pics on 'the wrong days'.

Nope- it wouldn't then be making the costume from scratch to finish in 48 hours, would it? :)

In that case, I'm putting my vote on 'other' and suggesting Mon 5th July - Wed 7th July, as it's both school and Uni holidays, and allows for those who work part time on the weekends - especially as you only get a limited amount of leave each year, which would perhaps be better spent on the weekends of the cons where the costumes are worn rather than the weekend of the costume making.

Hmm, I might do Haru from Reborn o3o
That failing, I know it said refs in the first post, but what about original ideas?
Not exactly original, more like an outfit based off that character's personality and such?
For instance, a casual!Vocaloid outfit, as long as we do a design before hand and work off that?

my only qualm is that the weekend for DO might be a bit late for people who are also stallholders/rushing to get art done?

If a group of Aucklanders are having a sewing party for this, I'm keen. Else nah, too unmotivated to do this by myself lol. I might do Adachi.

An original idea is fine, the ref pic reference was just so that we know what you're making. :)

My thoughts exactly, which is why I didn't vote for that weekend. Razz But really it does come down to what suits the majority- as I said to those who work weekends, you can do the challenge in your own time if the 'official' time doesn't suit.

But then, doing it over two separate Saturdays wouldn't be allowed in the thread either?

This is an awesome and productive idea but I really want to slam something home.

BE CAREFUL WORKING WITH MACHINERY/HOT GLUE/SOLVENTS/SHARP THINGS - missing a deadline is not worth hurting yourself over.

I am very happy that you put in the ceavet about working on props- when people rush/are stressed they neglect safety.

BUT I KNOW YOU'LL ARE SENSIBLE Very Happy Once again I think this is a fun and awesome idea- just be careful <MUM TALK OVER>

Hurr! Possible work around for those with work issues? How we do '48 hour costume marathon week' - so the official start date/time is when most people do it, but those who can't must do theirs within the 7 days following the official start? That way no one starts 'early', but those with work can legitimately post in-thread, which really, is half the fun. nodnod That way, no one is excluded! n_n

Thanks for the motherly warning Mischa, that's a very good point. :)

Yep- that idea sounds good for those who work at weekends. In which case, as the poll is at a tie the official weekend will be June 25th-27th, with the 7 day cut off date for those who can't make it July 1st.

So, get thinking guys about what costume you'd like to marathon! (Keeping in mind said warnings about props/armour.)

Post By RainbowMoonDust. 14/05/10, 03:25 pm

Hey I just had a thought. How will you know if people are waiting until 7pm to start? :think: Razz Maybe there can be some kind of rule, that people are not allowed post pictures of their unused materials until 7pm or later on the night it starts. Just a thought, in case some people try to cheat and start early. Razz (Not me, lol, I won't post pictures of my unused materials until 7pm). Of course there is nothing stopping someone taking a photo of their unused materials in the morning, working on the cosplay during the day then not posting the photo until 7pm, lol. Razz I myself hope to be in a group with other people anyway so will hopefully be starting around the same time that everyone else does. sweatdrop nodnod Anyway, putting that out there in case you hadn't thought of it already although no doubt you probably have. nodnod
