Cosplay Preview: FMA State Military Uniform

I wanted to wait a bit longer to show everyone what I got up my sleeve for Sac-Anime in January, but I just couldn't wait!

First off, I'd like to thank the people who made it (Yes, I'll be honest: this is a commissioned creation. Then agian, I have no time to sow or do that kind of fancy stuff.), as they did a wonderful job of creating my idea!

As you can see, it's not the correct color - this one is in a custom black that I had asked for. Either than that, it's pretty much the same State Military uniform.

Either than that, 11 days 'till Sac-Anime!

Sac-Con Dec. 2007 Report

Ah, the last Sac-Con of the year, the last one before Sac-Anime in January. For many of us, this is a time to fine-tune our costumes and acting skills (via the Cosplay Contest) for the huge show in January.

I must say that the quality of guests is improving rapidly - especially when Doug Jones, the man who played Silver Surfer in the 2nd Fantastic Four movie, is in the house. Unforunately, he was charging $20 an autograph, and I all I wanted as for him to sign my badge, something that I should of started back in January of this year. Then again, that's the norm of comic conventions, and to anime convention attendees who usually get their autographics for free it's a bit of a shock.

The cosplay contest was good again, and whoever thought of using Phoenix Wright with a skit to explain the rules of the contest is brilliant. Seriously, that should be done at the January show. I only have three videos, though, that I recorded off my camera - that skit, the last candy giveaway, and when we all sang Sac-Con's version of "The 12 Days of Christmas." I have the last two up, and after some talk with the group who did the beginning skit I got the green light to post it on YouTube; however, it's in maintainence mode so I'll have to wait until tommorrow.

I'm also trying to get all the photos (OVER 400!) online, so that will be up soon. Expect a post with some of my favorite shots soon.
