  1. I'll be wearing a costume that requires assembly at the convention. My handler is my husband and he'll need to help me put it on (NOT something that I can wear over other clothes). Are their any private/family bathrooms there that we can use at the convention? We're staying at a hotel that is not within walking distance and I won't be able to sit in a car with what I'm wearing. Even if a neighboring hotel had a unisex/family bathroom we could use, that would be great.

    I'll he able to attend both photoshoots now. stella Friday and Edea Saturday
  3. Yes, I was thinking about researching local areas for family restrooms, but they would have to be within walking distance of the con. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who is staying at a hotel nearby. I would only need to use one Saturday afternoon before the masquerade.
  4. Final Fantasy (2015)

    Anyone know where the photoshoot will be if it's raining Saturday morning? I can't get my costume wet! I'll be Sorceress Edea and my husband will be Vincent Valentine.

  5. Final Fantasy (2015)

    If you're Noctis on Sunday, you're welcome to hangout with me. I'll be Stella. At the photoshoot on Saturday, I'll be Sorceress Edea so I shouldn't be hard to spot. :)/> I've made Lightning versions 1 and 3, but not 2. I couldn't figure out how to make the chest piece - of all things - but here's my LR costume. http://prntscr.com/71ewaw
  6. Final Fantasy (2015)

    I'm bringing the cape, but only wearing it for the masquerade. Believe it or not, the back piece was much easier to make than the helmet. I cut it all out of foam board with a hot knife, coated with resin for extra stability and made a support harness (with pillow) to keep it on my back. http://prntscr.com/71etbl I'd love to see your Locke cosplay in person. I'm pretty sure I saw you in my FF cosplay group on Facebook. Am I right?
  7. Guidebook

    The 2015 guide book doesn't show up in the apple app search.
  8. This is the first time I've traveled for a convention and - since my hotel is over 5 miles away - I have to bring necessities (super-glue, comb, contact case, money, makeup, etc). My costume doesn't have pockets and is rather skimpy. How do others deal with this?
  9. Final Fantasy (2015)

    I'm bringing Stella Nox Fleuret, Lightning (LR version) and Sorceress Edea this year. I'll probably be Edea on Saturday - but not with her cape piece out of fear of damaging in the crowds. I'm also making Terra Branford (green haired version). Too many options... Here's my cosplay page: https://www.facebook.com/finalfantasycosplayjulie

    It wouldn't let me tag myself in your pics. lol That's ok. Many of those FF cosplayers, including the chocobo, are in my final fantasy cosplayer group on FB if you want to find them. https://www.facebook.com/groups/252909141549334/

    There were several Lightnings there, but only 2 from Lightning Returns. Those were myself and one of my FB friends, Noelle. We both live in Indiana. Everyone - Feel free to join my Final Fantasy Cosplayer group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/252909141549334/

  14. Final Fantasy 2014

    Is anyone going to post some of the Final Fantasy pictures from the meet ups? I went to both of them as lightning from lightning returns.
  15. Final Fantasy 2014

    Does anyone know where we'll move the FF meetups if it rains? I wanted to attend the Saturday meetup, but there's a 40% chance of rain and it will be in the 50's. I'm wearing a skimpy costume, so I'll be very cold.
  16. Final Fantasy 2014

    I was going to be Serah on the 1st and 3rd day, but my hairstylist messed up my wig (cut it too short), so now I'll be Lightning all 3.
  17. Final Fantasy 2014

    Thank you for clarification!
  18. Final Fantasy 2014

    I was just going on what I read earlier in this thread. Where did you find the official info?

  20. Final Fantasy 2014

    I'll definitely be at the Saturday meetup as Lightning Returns and with the white mage. I look forward to meeting you all!
  21. Final Fantasy 2014

    I'd like to see your Garnet. I'll be at the Saturday meetup as Lightning (Lightning Returns) costume. I'll have the white mage with me and she's a HUGE Garnet fan.
  22. I'm staying at the Quality Inn O'hare and don't want to deal with the parking issue (it gives me high anxiety trying to find parking in a crowded and unfamiliar city), so I'm either going to call a cab or hope there's valet parking around the convention. Does anyone know good cab companies that run on time picking up and dropping off? And is there any valet parking around the convention center?
  23. I know it's only a 7 minute walk, but I might be leaving the convention pretty late at night. Is this a relatively safe walk? I'll have another girl with me, but she's not a martial arts master.
  24. Good ideas. Thanks! I'm playing Lightning - FF Lightning Returns version.
  25. Thanks! Luckily for me, I won't bring any loose powder.
