Acen 2008 is 50-50 for me.. :? Even though I've been going since 2001, i may have to break my streak of consecutive years because this year, FanimeCon is the weekend after, followed by A-kon.. To ask for 3 weekends off in-a-row from work is really tough.. As much as I like Acen, right now it's hard...

White Fleece?

I know this doesn't really involved making costumes, but I've picked up a 10 yard bulk of fleece at Joanns today for only 20 bucks! My question is, what can I make to sell in artist alley with white fleece?

Limits on images in signature?

Is there any way you guys can put a limit on signature sizes of text/graphics? Some of the graphics are really annoying to see and it takes up most of the screen. Just a suggestion. Thanks!

Shoe/Boot Help?

I'm having such difficultly finding shoes and boots for Ohayo Con cosplays. My problem too is that I have wide feet and I need wide-calf boots. Characters that I'm having issue on finding boots (under 30 dollars, cheaper the better) are: Saya - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v331/kalajessta/Saya3...

I'm not asking for things to be commissioned. My project budget for Simon is under $60 for everything. I've been sewing for a few years now, so the costume isn't the issue. I just need suggestions/tips on how to make a few accessories.

Best way to make one: Find a pattern in your local fabric store that is similar to the Ouran jacket. Patterns are easily modify-able to your size, but it does take practice to get the right size down at first. Also, remember that the Ouran jacket has a tail and many patterns do not include them.
