I feel let down right about now. If there's going to be rain I'm definitely not going to wear one of my costumes even if I spent all this time and money on it just like the rest of you guys. Staying inside daily sucks so much. I go to acen to not stay inside.

I'm liking the looks of the temperature.
Just cause i hate harsh heats and i had 3 nose bleeds last week.
I don't want a bloody nose during ACEN xD

As for the rain.. eh.
Not good for my expensive camera.
Debating if i should bring it at all.

heat + rain = humidity, or awesome weather. ever play volleyball outside in the summer during a storm? Totally awesome, and you don't get cold til you go inside!
See me you may,
See me you not.
But see me you wont,

I love heat.

But kolkokolkolkol *covers mouth*

No rain for my cosplay. I am doing America. I am wearing a leather jacket. And boots. And gloves. NOT FUN.

Guess I have to buy an umbrella Thursday.

Yeah, it's important to remember that the weather for a downtown zip code can be TOTALLY different than a Des Plaines zip code. I know of times when it rains down on the West Side where my Grandma lives, and REALLY BADLY at that, and it's totally calm and cool over by me on the Northwest Side (/10 minutes from ACen), and the reverse is also true. Heck, I've even known of times when it's been raining 3 MILES from my house when it isn't raining by me.

I hope it doesn't rain, or if it absolutely MUST rain, that it will do so laaaate at night or in the wee hours of the morn.

Also, it was supposed to rain today. It did - at 6 AM. The rest of the day (at least from noon onwards) was actually quite nice.

I don't mind the rain honestly... might make cosplaying for some more environmentally friendly for cosplay and really capture the mood.

Guessing no one's seen Skilling's forecast yet? o.O (*also partially kidnapped form the WGN forecast from earlier yesterday*)

Friday: High ~72-75. Clear. Low: 60s/high 50s.
Saturday: High ~85. Rain. Low: 70s/60s.
Sunday: High ~82. Partial rain/clear.

Basically, roughly the same as it has been for the last 7 odd ACens. Alternatingly cool & warm, with intermittent wet throughout the weekend and evenings.

Welcome to May weather in Chicago. It's ....predictable. ~ :P harharIRPunny

It may be Thursday, but I'm still wary of the forecasts, only because I live in Michigan and the weather here's just as weird as yours. There's been plenty of times where a forecast has been wrong right up to the day in question. As for my cosplays, Angel L will be Friday (yay not-wet wings), Tima's a fleece coat, and Sorincha should be good to go.

I am still going to pack an Umbrella

I wanted a Union Jack one but can't find it; knew I should have ordered that one from UK!

I am hoping the weather is bad, like rain and all that because then my boyfriend won't have to be sent to jobs on Saturday and will hopefully be done early Friday. Even though he requested this weekend off months ago, it's been super busy and the only other person that does what my boyfriend does just up and quit yesterday so it's going to be interesting. PLEASE LET THE WEATHER BE BAD ENOUGH SO HE CAN GO TO ACEN!!!!

Wow......well if it's bad I can wing it still. So adding onto your hope for an unselfish reason.

I went to work in horrible blizzards in Chicago so rain isn't a problem.

I'm guessing a lot of the photoshoots are outside, so what happens in the event of bad rain? Are they just canceled?

In case of bad weather, photoshoots are moved inside, mostly to the Convention Center lobby.
