It's fine XD
I am too ^^ And you will definatelly make a lot of new friends! It's crazy at how many people you meet at expo.
Friendly tip, take buisness card with you. Put on your email address, websites, bookface and other stuff. That way people can easily find you on the internets when they get back home ^^

Ooh ^^ and yeah, it seems like it's easy to make new friends :'D

But I was actually wondering about whether to take a card XD so thankyou for that advice, is it a common thing for people to give each other cards then?

I'm torn... I'm feeling a bit lazy and might not cosplay at all.

But then, I know that once I get there I'll wish I had. To cosplay or not to cosplay? If I did, I'd be Sailor Jupiter. Any other Sailor Moon cosplayers going? If there are a decent amount we could maybe get together a do photos?

I will be going as a vampire student from Vampire Knight, no one in particular as I haven't had the time to perfect anyone *sighs* but I'll have bright red hair + will be wearing heels instead of boots...okay so I'm not sticking to original costume design but hey! Hopefully it'll look decent enough =)

I'm going as the Scout from TF2. I've got everything nailed, every tiny bloody detail.

Out of interest how much have you guys spent on your cosplays? I've ended up spending about £18 on props, the clothes I thankfully already had.

I'm planning on being Jill Valentine (S.T.A.R.S. uniform) from Resident Evil, but that's dependant on whether I can find some replacement shoes (either today or Friday) as the ones I wore last time have pretty much fallen apart... otherwise, I'll be Freya Crescent from Final Fantasy IX again I guess.

I have to spray paint my rocket launcher again before Saturday as well D8 Running out of time...

Oh, were you the Freya from last Midlands? Also... FFFFF. Hell yes. Finally, someone making the S.T.A.R.S. uniform version and not the RE3 boob tube and skirt outfit. I'll definitely be chasing you down for a photo if I see you around.

I told myself I wasn't going to spend as much on props and the costume this year, but I still ended up doing it. Total cost of my costume ended up somewhere around £120 *rolls eyes*
I just hope that I can still pose in some way with my props, though collectively, they are lethal weapons!

Though I love dressing up so I guess it kinda makes up for it :)

Yeah, that was me :) I'm managed to find some replacement shoes and get the rocket launcher resprayed (thanks to my sister), but two parts of my costume have now gone missing... needless to say, I am a little worried haha XD I'll have a S.T.A.R.S. Chris Redfield with me too :D

Sweet. I was meant to get a picture of you, but I got completely side tracked. I hope you don't get the 'You were almost a Jill sandwich' line quoted to you too much, but then... I guess it's kinda inevitable xD
