I am going, but what I'll be cosplaying is still unknown to me. I want to do something BIG seeing as most of my stuff has been small. I went as Eternal Sailor Jupiter to Afest but that's the biggest I've done...

Okay. I know a lot of cosplayers can't stand Ebay (I dunno why!) but there are a few people on Ebay who make all the Sailor Scouts wands and things for decently cheap. I know the rose earrings go for around 20 a pair, but they are really pretty and normaly good quality.

If you go to the cosplay galleries here on acparadise.com you'll see a few pictures of Kairi's keyblade. I bought my Kairi outfit off Ebay, and it was made different than what it is suppost to look like. The lady offered to fix it, but I had to pay the 20 dollar shipping fee. Don't use HonestDragonC...

Thank you so much!

Yeah, this is for cosplaying purposes, and so far I haven't attended a convention that would let you bring in a REAL weapon- though that would be cool, I know we are all a little bit safer because of the policy. ^^;. Thanks anyways!
