Hi everyone! I'm Heather, this will be my second con and first time cosplaying. My first con was just last month, I attended Shuto-con in Lansing, MI. It was their first convention, too, which I didn't realize until we were sitting in the opening ceremony.

I'll be cosplaying as Hilda ("トウコ" Touko) from Pokémon Black and White. I'm still putting together my costume, if anyone knows where to find the right kind of black vest that she has, let me know!

Well, that's about it, uhm. I play lots of shooters and watch a pretty wide variety of Anime (though I have a preference for complete series over the super duper lengthy ones like Naruto/Bleach). My favorite anime series is probably somewhere between Eureka seveN, Initial D, FLCL, and uhmm, Full Metal Alchemist? That's just off the top of my head though, it's hard to choose just one (or even a few). I'll be looking forward to seeing everyone at Acen!

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Oops, I forgot it was already May, so I guess I attended Shuto two months ago now. It feels like it was just last week.

Hello and welcome!

Vests are deceptively easy to make. I don't know how you're building this cosplay, but if you have access to a sewing machine, or even if you can hand-stitch, vest patterns are typically very inexpensive and can be built in under 2 hours. (I made Stargate SG-1 costumes for my family one year, and we all needed black form-fitting vests like this! If you're really desperate, and can tell me your approximate size, I might be able to dig one out of storage for you to use.)

If you're looking to purchase one, or modify existing clothes, I'd recommend finding a black blouse and carefully removing the sleeves, and then folding under the button bands in order to open the gap and make it look less like a sleeveless blouse. If you're feeling super ambitious you can remove and re-hem the collar as well.

I hope this helps!

Welcome! It's going to be my first time at ACEN as well! I couldn't have chosen a better year though, FLOW is going to be performing! Not to mention everything this year just seems to be very exciting and there's ALWAYS something to do and new people to meet. It's a pleasure to meet you! I hope you will enjoy the convention just as much as I probably will! This'll be my first con EVER. I've always dreamed of going to one and now its coming true! =] Definitely give it your all for this con.

Yeah I'm trying to find one that fits like a pointed waistcoat at the bottom, without any sort of collar, and perhaps with some pockets. I don't have any real sewing experience so I haven't a clue how to do any of that by myself. If you could hook me up that'd be super awesome! Or if you could send me some sort of vest pattern or advice on what materials to buy, etc, that'd be great, too. Thanks for all the advice!

Here's the game art for the character I'm cosplaying: http://images2.fanpo...679-245-480.jpg

I KNOW. I heard about FLOW and I was like, "WHOA~" It's going to be so exciting, I can't believe I've never taken the time to go to one before. I hope you have a great time at the con, and pleasure meeting you, too!

The English dub is pretty bearable, for the most part. I mean, at least the main characters aren't terribly annoying or offbeat (with the exception of Itsuki, of course, haha). And I believe they have everything but the Extra Stage. I've watched First Stage, Second Stage, Third Stage, and am on episode 6 of Fourth Stage.

Heh, well I'd advise giving it a try anyway. And they definitely did not change anyone's names--they're totally Japanese. I think the only thing they altered was the surname before first name part, but that's pretty standard. I've only been able to play the arcade once, but I loved it! Wish I could try the Sixth Stage AA machines.

Haha, me too. I wonder if there's a machine at GameWorks in Schaumberg, I haven't been over there in ages. And nope! They're pretty Azn names, off the top of my head: Takumi Fujiwara, Bunta (his dad), Iketani, Kenji, Itsuki, Mako (Iketani's girl), Ryosuke, Keisuke, Kyoko, Natsuki, Shingo...those are all the ones I can remember off the top of my head--and the only character with an English-sounding name was "Ken...something", he was the son of Bunta Fujiwara's old rival.

But about gameworks, they USE to have a machine...but its gone now which is very sad cause I loved going on thursdays to play unlimited. =[[ guess its only nickel city left.

Maybe...! Nickel City looks like a Chuck'E'Cheese though. I think I'd need to kidnap a cousin of mine to get in. Haha
