Hello everyone,

I just wanted to know how everybody will be approaching Youmacon. Are you all using the same pattern for the suits? Material?

Also, since I'm from Chicago, do I need to find a place to stay? Hotel?

I'm moving in September, so right now I'm in the midst of packing and such, so I hope this doesn't get in the way of me going to the con, because I'd really like to be a part of this.

Jesse (Collier) and I were just talking about ideas for the costumes at Wizard. We'll probably base the bodices off the green pepper ice skating uniform pattern. It comes with a pattern for the skirt that works perfectly for Senshi fuku. You just elongate or shorten it as needed. Plus the bodice pattern is easily adjustable. I used it for my Sumomo bodice.
I'm not quite sure what we're going to do about the chest armor. Any ideas that anyone might have are more than welcome. I've got one that I'm going to test out that was given to us by Aiko-chan, last year's PGSM Jupiter. As for fabric, we can see that they they're skirts and hoods aren't shiney. So we'll need a nice but matte fabric. My recommendation would be Isis Crepe for the skirts and hoods. And a dan-skin material or swim suite material for the bodices. Anyone else have any suggestions? Please share!

Who prints the green pepper ice skating pattern? Kwiksew?
I really hope I can get to this, but this I post I guess is my fair warning that if I fall thru, it's because of the move!

If u=you guys wants to find an understudy for me just in case I wouldn't take offense!
You guys doing this for ACen at all, too?

Things happen. If you need some help with the move or the costume, we're all more than willing to lend a hand. I hope you can join us though!

I'm not sure who makes the green pepper patterns. I usually find them at Joanne's and I know there are a ton of them on ebay.

Oh I knew I had armor.
I was referring to the question about the leo.

The armor is mostly what makes it pgsm
