Ive been to ACen every year and man was it hot. I was in a TF2 photoshoot and after it was over, my white blouse was drenched in sweat! Was anyone else feeling the heat this year. I drank more water than I did soda just to stay hydrated.

Yup.. I was dieing.. jacket and top made of multiple layers of Vinyl and felt... T_T I loved cosplaying, but it felt so nice to shed the layers and just lounge in shorts and a tanktop back in the AC of my hotel room.
I had scar putty on my face Saturday, needless to say, most of my 'scars' were melting off by the half point of the day. :T
I kept seeing the full suits, masks, and whatnots, and I felt terrible for them, because most of them must have been roasting.

When we were dressing for the fashion shows it was incredibly hot! Even just in general, it was pretty warm.

I know when we got back home it felt about 10 degrees cooler, and we only live about 20 minutes away

Haha you should have been me, my Helba visor was collecting steam while I was wearing it. Haha. The ironic part is that last year I caught a cold from the same costume that nearly killed me this year. Ahhh, worth it!!!

Even out of cosplay (I was just wearing a dress, which was pretty little fabric) it was smoldering. Props to all cosplayers who stuck with it and kept reapplying their sweated-off makeup!! Still, at least it wasn't cold and rainy and miserable.

Well ACen has no control over Mother Nature but I am happy that the conventions center and most areas of the hotels were well air-conditioned. But did anyone else have problems with the temperature of their rooms? Mine was extremely hot the entire weekend! We were in the executive wing of the Hyatt and our anti-suicide windows only opened a tiny 4 feet! Our air condition only went down to 65 and while you could hear it working it definitely didn't feel like it worked! So our room was constantly around 79 or maybe higher! The tiny USB fan we brought was a life-saver! The hallway outside our room was definitely 10 degrees cooler and spent some time just right outside my room to chill.

But yeah ACen is not a great con for big armor cosplays or fursuits, that is more of a winter con thing. It is a good time to bust out cosplays with less clothes LOL

I was dying in my Marvin the Martian costume. I tried not to wear the mask outside lol. Even my lightest costume yesterday of The Hurricane (with shorter sleeves) had me dying.

Oh my god yes! It was hot! Even in my cosplay (which was a short dress, sleeveless and a halter) I was sweating buckets! And for that, I apologize to all who gave me hugs over the weekend lol. ^_^/>

Yup, it was warmer than I expected it to be. If I had know, I would have packed more shorts. Overall, I can't complain too much. The weather could have been so much worse.

I feel like I always pick the wrong cosplays to go with whatever weather happens the weekend of the con D:
I wore layers of corduroy and suede and a binder Fri and Sat and it was ridiculous. My makeup held up though!

Agreed. I'd take hotter weather over cold/rain/snow to be honest.

I was in a mostly all black suit and wearing a foam head so I was on the urge of passing out and having asthma attacks because the heat (plus the foam head) made it hard to breath.

When I was wearing Gamzee cosplay on Saturday the face paint was coming off faster because I was so sweaty. It was really hot! It's better than freezing cold weather though. I just didn't even care about fixing the face paint over and over again.

Yes, I was wearing my Fili costume and I was just dying in the heat. I literally was sweating all over the costume x.x However, it was nice that it wasn't raining outside, so I guess it could've been worse.

I'm actually quite jealous of you all - it was freezing in the back corner of the AA, and I had long sleeves all weekend! lol We had quite a few people just stop and stand in the breeze. I actually wore a coat on Sun - forgot to take it off before trekking back to the car, though, which was a big mistake. ^_^;;

Being in a creeper cosplay... I was dying. The only thing cool was my legs so I had to get out every at least 30 minutes. The wait to get into the dealer's room/Artist Alley on Sunday made us go outside so I was sweating like a horse....
I won't be going to ACen 2015 sadly ;;;; (I am going to Anime Expo) but I'll be back for 2016!

I didn't think it was all that bad, actually--but I spent most of my time in the Exhibit Hall.

It was damn humid, though. Being from the West, I forgot how humid the Midwest gets!

It was a good reason to not wear a shirt... like pretty much all weekend. Ryoji looks better in just suspenders as a top anyway, eh? :rolleyes:

Same with male stocking, I suppose, only the vest top! Woo.
