Can there be more than one of the same character? I plan on being Yuna (FFX variant).

Sweet! :D Having something to carry belongings is always inconvenient in cosplay... but that's brilliant. :3

Of course! I personally love twins/triplets/etc. but I know some people get all scoffy, which is plain silly. I'll add you on!

You're welcome! No one should feel thwarted because they're a "double"; just do what you want to do, I always say. :] And likewise! We must get pics!

You know though, there's always that "oh, is she gonna be better than me?" approach. I hope no one feels that way towards me or any other double cosplays out there. Everyone's equally good.

Yes, I've heard that one before, but honestly, I don't feel like I need to compare myself to anyone else because everyone's cosplay skill/talents are different. Not everyone can sew or craft or make props. And then some people are way awesome at it. It's just a matter of personal limits and what really matters is the love of the cosplay. Too many lose the concept of cosplay as a thing for fun and self-expression and it saddens me, so I just try to rise above and do the best job I can while encouraging others to do the same. You have no idea the drama that's been avoided because of that.

Thank god. I think all cosplays are good, as long as they put full effort into them. And I'm incredibly excited to see yours and all the other FFX/X-2 cosplays. ^^ But anyways, I mean, I know I'm not going to be the "perfect" Yuna. First of all, I am a bigger person. I don't have her body. Come to think of it I don't have any character's body haha. I have an immense love for those 2 games. That being said... I want to see what this Wakka looks like. ;~;

I know the feeling. I was around a lot of radiation in the Navy and my thyroid is pretty messed up now, so I gain weight like crazy. I've been a "bigger" Yuna for a few years now and haven't gotten trash for it. I hope that's because I don't harass others, myself. :P I'm excited about the cosplays too! I'm always excited about ACen, come to think of it. xD

This will be marvelously awesome! I will be there as Lightning Farron, from XIII. I'll also have a cute, shorti lil Hope with me!!! And hopefully, (meaning, if I can't get it done) I'll have my tonberry cosplay done by then! I've got, what, seven months, right? Though I'd like to have it done before then...oh well. I'm so excited!!!

I ordered my Yuna wig. Does anyone have tips on how to style the little tuffs of hair that curl over on the side? It's Japanese fiber, so it's somewhat style-able.

Nice, I like!

I've been away or I would've said something! One way to do that is to use one of those round brushes and run the fibers over it as you're blow drying, but you have to test the distance to see how far away is safe so it won't melt. As you're drying, spray the fibers with got2b's Blasting Freezing Spray [amazing stuff, you can get it at most stores for around $5-7] Hopefully that makes sense.

Another way I've tried is to put the whole wig into a bowl upside down, and run hot water over it. Again, you have to test the temperature to make sure it doesn't melt. Doing that to the wig several times and even letting it sit in hot water for a bit will set the hair in that bowl shape, which consists of the tips of hair falling over, thus the flip shape. You'd want to spray that as well.

Hope that helps!
