Hi, all! Last year I was the Byakuya at the Saturday shoot with the shikai Senbonzakura; my friend was the Vice-Captain Rukia who directed both shoots. She says it was a blast, but this year someone else will have to hold the reins.
This year I'm bringing back Byakuya (he's needs a little fixing, though). And then on Saturday I'll debut Espada Nel Tu. My friend is returning as Rukia with the Sode no Shirayuki I made her, and...we might have a whole group
this year, actually. One is going to try to come to ACen (he lives across the country), and if so he'll most likely be Soi Fon. Then we have another friend who plans on coming as Espada Zommari LeRoux (and believe me, I am BEGGING him to come). It'll also be their first time at ACen/cosplaying period, so...*cackles* ONE OF US! ONE OF US!
I'm also the prop person in the group, so assuming that everyone will be able to make it, I have a LOT of work to do over the next four months:
--a new version of Senbonzakura (resin and LED lights will be involved)
--a plushie Ambassador Seaweed
--Nel Tu's Gamuza (just the sheath and hilt)
--Zommari's Brujeria (I want to make the blade all twisty, too)
--Zommari's bone necklace
--Soi Fon's Suzumebachi
This on top of the Sealing Wand I'm making for my Sakura cosplay...I'm totally masochistic. (I mean, the plushie's optional, but I REALLY want to make it...)
