First post <3
Hey, I thought I might as well post my first entry in here~!

I'm otherwise known as Chen/Lee/Chen Lee/Yunie and the other member of CosWa who hasn't started on anything yet so doesn't really have much to update here about. =p But I'm keeping all up to date with what everyone else is doing~! I wanna see the room!!! XD

Anyhoo, I thought I'd write up about how I'm going to be in Malaysia for two conventions (WOW~! TWO!) On the 11th-12th Comic Fiesta is going to be in Kuala Lumpur and on the 18th is CosMas (Malaysian Cosplay Club Event).

The websites for the following two are http://www.comicfiesta.com/ and http://www.mycosplay.org/ so check it out~ :3

Hopefully, I'll be able to attend them both (since my cousins and stuff are always busy and I don't know if I could wander off on my own and let myself get kidnapped or lost). Anyhoo... there's going to be a KARAOKE COMPETITION that I really want to sign up for, so I REALLY REALLY wannnaaa gooooooo~!~!~!

I'll make sure to take tonnes of photos and scope out everything and everyone. It's kinda like having a new experience in a bigger place where there are more anime/manga fans... so I guess it'll all be good! (Since I won't be in Perth for PANIC this year!!! ;__;)

I wonder if I can get a last minute costume done for the Malaysian conventions... =/ I don't think I have enough time ;____; Maybe I can rent one once I get to Malaysia?? Anyhoo, that is all~ <3

omg noob!
G'day. My name's Bernard or otherwise 'Tsunemori', friend of May and/or her boyfriend, Alex. I'm an artist and I, uh, was asked if I want to join this cosplay thing so I'm like... okay.

And being an artist I want to utilise my skill somehow... and just tonight I decided to do a bit of research on some knives/daggers, and the concept design of FFX-2's Rikku's Thief clothing.

- Knives and stuff -
- Everything about Rikku -

If anyone needs any technical drawings or suggestions for anything, feel free to ask. I'm particularly interested in weapons, but I can do further researches on anything if needed.

Thank you, enjoy your cake.

Cosplay List
This is just a basic listing of what we might be doing as a group or individually (so far we've only planned for consecutive WaiCons).

Every 2 lines going downwards shall be cosplays that we are doing in the same con (one on each day). Thus the colour coding for them. Reading horizontally across is the cosplay we'll be doing together.

It'll be updated according to idea changes (changing the groupings of cosplays for extra when we go supanova jafwa etc) and all that but the link to this page is also on the main info page for easy access. =)

As you can see me and Chen have a twin complex. And many of Amanda's cosplays atm are unconfirmed.

Introductory Post
I don't know what to say but lionheartlily said write an introductory post so here's an introductory post.

This group was created around the dinner/lunch table of efinity's home at about midday on the day of...today. It started off as a laugh but here we are and we plan to be good. It started off as me, efinity and lionheartlily and we dragged in Amanda and I dragged in violeteyeddevil. SO here we are.

2004 shall be unproductive as for cons as we don't have the entire group together. But violeteyeddevil and nekomiao shall be attending WaiCon in your forever faithful Prince of Tennis gear (I think/hope/believe?) and I think the efinity and Amanda shall endeavour to present WaiCon with a coupla FFX characters, Yuna and Rikku.

Anyway...stick around for pics. We're going to be posting some out of costume pics soon just to show you how loveable we are.

*wants hugs*
