Are you going to the San Diego comic con?

Noooope. I wish! The Assassin’s Creed setup looks incredible ;A;

I've been wanting to try entering a costume contest, but I'm not sure which category I'd fall under. Could you explain the "levels"? I'm self-taught, and I don't think my skills are fantastic yet (only recently started doing some "basic" techniques...) but I've improved since my first and only contest a few years ago when I started out. So would that fall under Journeyman on a Novice-Master scale, do you think?
shikarius shikarius Said:

Always check the website of the con you’re thinking of entering! Some cons use ICG standards, some don’t, so always look at their rules first.

Usually, skill level is judged by the number of awards you’ve won. 0 is novice unless the judges determine that you belong in a higher skill level. From there on, it varies widely. Some cons rule that you’re in intermediate once you’ve won 1 major award (best in show novice, for example) or a certain number of minor awards (judge’s choice, audience favorite, etc). Some suggest multiple awards in general without distinction. Some cons have rules where commissioners are automatically Masters. It really depends.

You can also always move up at your discretion. …That said, I don’t suggest it. It’s not just how you’re judged on your costume; judges tend to expect you to know what you’re doing at higher levels in both presenting the costume to them and (if there’s a performance component) to the audience. Familiarity comes with practice! 

That awkward moment when a post office is shut down for flood damage… After it picks up your packages. Hm.

You mean my fellow penguins would guide me places and it would solve my always getting lost because of my dire sense of direction problem?

What is the recommended washing method for jackets with patches from your store? Thank you!
shikarius shikarius Said:

The patches are color fast so washing shouldn’t be a problem color wise. That said, I’d only suggest washing with them if you’ve sewn them on, not ironed on, and even then, hand washing or spot treating is always preferable for costumes.

I’d avoid dry cleaning as the adhesive can melt slightly.

is it wrong to look at your missing kings cosplay and think you look like a member of Fudanjuku (j-pop group)?
shikarius shikarius Said:

Let’s see… Fundanjuku is…

…Ah.

So basically Scepter 4 needs to form an idol group. They’ve got the hair for it…

Do you know where you can buy cheap dakimakura pillows (the inner fluffy bit) and ship internationally?
shikarius shikarius Said:

I’m afraid I don’t know. Shipping those things is a pain since they’re pretty big, even completely vacuum-sealed. I know in the US you can grab a standard size one at Walmart for $10, but shipping… You’d really do best to either look locally or, honestly, make one yourself. It’s literally a rectangle filled with fluff o:

shikarius:

Okay, there’s the extra. Price is just what I paid less shipping, so have at it :o

Whoops, forgot about this; ends in 3 hours!
