Um...opinions please?  
Well...amecons coming up in less than two weeks....and I'm pretty damn sure one of my wigs aren't gunna turn up..

The seller said 15-20 days a few days ago..and:

a-That's way slower than I thought
b-The con turned out to be way sooner than I thought....

I *could* buy another, but that means:

a-Finding one in a shop over here
b-Undoubtably paying 5 times as much on top of what I've already payed
c-Slim chance of ending up with two

So I'm now:

b-Wondering what the hell to do
c-Thinking I'm going to end up skipping work the day before to dash and buy another
d-Harassing my f-list.

Thnaks and apologies ^^;

Where in the UK are you? I know in Middlesborough, there's a wig shop in town centre, but I'm not sure of anywhere else. I still need to find some as well (playing Hakkai, Hisoka and Kijin *coughs*) cuz I'm NOT cutting my hair.

I'm going to Ame-con too! *can't wait* Tis my first con. (btw, got here from your post on YnM comm...)

Oh crapetty crap crap o.O We're doing the same character...^^; *goes to die*

But that aside, I live in Batley, nearish to Leeds...and I'm geographically impared, so I'm not sure where Middlesborough is, although I've heard of it ^^;

But yeah, I'm very much panicking about it...

And your first con! ^^ It's only my second, and I was fine the first time, so don't worry! ^_^ Feel free to poke me if you see me XD

*chuckles* will do. I'll be the one that sticks out like a sore thumb with my Canadian/Scots accent and fancy Kijin costume. *grins* Not sure what day I'll be doing that but yeah. I'm with a Saiyuki cosplay group anyway so I'm sure you won't be able to miss me *chuckles*

I know where Batley is, we used to live near Sheffield and I've been thru Batley many times :) Plus one of the girls in our cosplay group is from Skipton (or near to...) so yeah. We're now in Scotland (near Edinburgh) so yeah, that's why the weird accent mix.

Middlesborough is near Newcastle-on-Tyne. Way da hell up north somewhere. About 3 hrs from me *chuckles* and prolly about the same from you actually...

I'll see ya there then :) (feel free to friend meh! can never have enough friends *grins*)

kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 2nd, 2006 10:44 pm (UTC)
Sure, added XD Feel free to add me back =3

I guess if my wig isn't here in time I'll be off to Leeds then...XD;;

Kijin costume=Awesome XD

btw-what days are you doing each?
つきちゃん the Romantic Kipper: Tsuzukipixisity on August 3rd, 2006 09:37 am (UTC)
I haven't the foggiest actually. Need to talk to my friend about that - she's in charge of the Saiyuki group. (wouldn't know it that she's Goku *laughs*) I'm prolly going to come as Hisoka tho. It's nice and easy LOL

I'm coming all day Friday tho - coming down late Thurs. to get there cuz it's about 5-6 hrs away for me straight driving. Altho if I'm taking my Muraki (yes, I named my car Muraki LOL cuz it's white and evil), it'll take longer cuz...yeah, tis ebil. -.-

If you want, I can try and see if there're any wig places up here? What exactly do you need? (I need to get some too actually...*coughs*)
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 3rd, 2006 12:54 pm (UTC)
Well, if mine doesn't arrive in time I need a short light brown one for the Hisoka....my other one arrived fine...>_>

....I can't believe you called your car Muraki XD That's awesome. But I pity you driving o.O Although I got stuck with the coach as I tried to book a train too late...and that prices were a bit ridiculous.

I'm not actually comign 'till the Friday, gunna try and be there for two since then when you can pick up keys for the onsite accom.

But there is actually a YnM group, maybe you should wear your Kijin on that day and have a move complete group? Yes doubles suck. XD

Seriously, a Kijin costume is awesome, did you make it or is it that one on ebay?
つきちゃん the Romantic Kipper: Hisoka blushpixisity on August 3rd, 2006 02:56 pm (UTC)
Tis the one from eBay. I SUCK at sewing. (even my friends reluctantly agree with me *coughs*) (I, like Tsuzuki, also suck at cooking but *laughs* at least I acknowledge it. Went and gave myself food poisoning *le sigh*) It's absolutely beautiful. I've also got another costume to bring as well that's just a generic chinese outfit from the same lady.

I'll have a look tomorrow when I go into the city - I have violin lessons so I'll be there anyway :) I need to see if I can get myself something too, cuz yeah, long dark hair on a Hisoka.....not happening really. Unless I can do as that one girl did and persuade ppl that Watari did something to me *laughs*

Anyway, that's cool that there's a YnM cosplay group. I'd love to be in there too...what day is it - Friday? Or does it matter? Apparently Saturday is the Saiyuki thing so....*panics*

What's your badge name? Mine's Caoilte (bit of a mouthful, ne?). I just signed up on the forum today to ask a lame-ass ID question, since I haven't gotten my passport renewed yet so all I have is my Canadian driver's license. (haven't been here long enough to get anything else...*coughs*)

We'll have to meet up somehow - altho have you booked your coach tix? I could always come pick you up....save you some dosh that way if you haven't... (oh and if you think that's hysterical, I named hubby-san's cars Hisoka (green) and Tatsumi (blue) *laughs* Tatsumi's a right plodder (very pedantic, like our Tatsumi...) and Hisoka's temperamental but fast. Almost like it reads your mind. I'm hoping to take Hisoka cuz yeah...me and slow cars don't get on. *coughsMurakicoughs*

kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 3rd, 2006 04:02 pm (UTC)
Hehe, I totally want that one on ebay XD

Also, oddly, I'd be long dark hair on Hisoka too. Need wig. Need wig. XD

The group is on Friday, we have all the main charas and an Oriya too, the Kijin would be a kickass add on ^__^

I really can't pronounce your badge name ^^; But mines the same as my lj screen name, so um yus. You can find me on the forum mainly under the topic in the cosplay section 'Ynm/Tb group'...well, thats the jist of it, can't remember the full name ^^;

I have already booked my coach, but that's really nice of you to offer ._. But I'm going with 2 others and we're all on the coach, despite a strong joint hatred of it ^^; But thanks so much for the offer ^__^ Hopefully I won't be hard to find at the con o.O One of the people I'll probably be with is rather hyper. Hard to miss. >_>

And a whole family of YnM cars, wow XD
つきちゃん the Romantic Kipper: Tatsumi kanjipixisity on August 3rd, 2006 07:11 pm (UTC)
Well you'll know who I am then cuz I'll come as Kijin just for you. *grins* Since I'll likely be the only one....

I'll have a look in the city tomorrow and get back to you on it. I might see if there's any places here or in Glenrothes that have them too, just to make sure. Or Dundee/Perth....all that jazz. It's nice being in a rather central location to different towns/cities. I could even go into Glasgow if I had to, tho I'd rather not. (me no likey Glasgow....*coughs* tho I'm going to Auchinawa too in Nov/Dec)

I didn't see a YnM group but I didn't get past the first page cuz I had to go pick my car up. I'm sure I'll find you. Since I'm going to be there on Thurs. I'll make sure to hang around the reg. desk so you see me. *grins* I'll be the shy one, looking nervous and possibly scared. (and of course dressed in that Kijin outfit from eBay hehehehe)

kurenai_tenka: Watson=Modelkurenai_tenka on August 3rd, 2006 09:44 pm (UTC)
Hehe, well hopefully I should be at the reg. desk near its opening, although I won't be in costume yet, so unless you listen out for every single name at the desk...XD

However a Kijin cosplay makes you quite recognisable. *cough* XD

Well you'll know who I am then cuz I'll come as Kijin just for you. *grins* Since I'll likely be the only one....

I am truly honoured ♥, and yeah likely the only one, I think someone *may* have mentioned doing one, but I'm probably wrong and it wouldn't be as nice as yours anyway *cough* XD

And thanks for the wig help =D As it stands, I'm having to wait 'till Thurs and then if it hasn't arrived make an emergency trip to Leeds and no doubt spend a stupid amount on top of what I've already paid >_<

...and heh...I just spent a while finding the damn topic for you only to find that the last post was you anyway...heh...

And don't be too scared! ^^
つきちゃん the Romantic Kipper: beneath this smile Hakkaipixisity on August 4th, 2006 06:46 pm (UTC)
Ah well...I'm always nervous/scared. I'm not really a people person - I'm hearing impaired so it makes it that much more....awkward for me. Most of my friends IRL are loud anyway so that helps - I just tend to fade into the background and let them do whatever. (you'll know who I mean when you see me *laughs*)

I didn't get the chance to find anything today but I'm going in specially for it tomorrow. *feels bad* We had to make a mad dash into Leith cuz my son decided he wanted violin lessons too *le sigh* and my violin is far too big for him. He did very well, all things considered tho.

I need to get slippers of some sort for the costume - I don't think trainers would quite cut it, and they're not allowed for the cosplay ball anyway. *chuckles* I was hoping that the same place I was thinking for the wig would have the shoes too. There's a place in town here, otherwise I'll check in Edinburgh, like I mentioned. *thumbs up* Between us, I'm sure we'll find something for ya!

I am coming down Thurs. - got confirmation today, but not staying at accom. so *shrugs* I'll prolly be coming in on Friday myself, but in the morning or close around lunch time. (prolly closer to lunch cuz I'm SOOOOO not a morning person LOL)

kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on August 5th, 2006 05:55 pm (UTC)
Lol, I'm absolutely not a morning person XD

And I'm scared too, I always am ^_^ Also I have cosplay-phobia...hehe...

But I cosplayed last year so I probably shouldn't worry...^^;

And you don't need to go so out of your way to help me! I really really appreciate it but you don't have to put yourself out! ^^;

Oh, and when I went into town today I found the super-extreme-backup-wig. ie the one I get that looks awful and I'd have to cut up at the last minute for lack of anything else >_> DAMN YOU LEEDS. =D

....The idea of Kijin in trainers is moderately amusing XD I'm putting Hisoka in pink and white trainers. Anyone who has a problem shall have to lump it XD

Also, I don't think there is onsite on the Thurday, so yeah, you'll be in on the Fri, registrations start at 2pm ^_^

Thankyou so much for all the help! ^^
