    well... for the first question, i guess it depends on how well "informed" you are... usually there will be some talk of upcoming cosplays in this forum, so stay tuned...
    As for the costumes, it really depends on how easy it is... hard ones take like almost half a year or more to complete, while easy ones can be done within a matter of weeks.
    And there are things to consider like ordering wigs and/or getting a tailor that's willing and able to do your costume... if you don't want to sew... And you have to both agree on a price...
    If there are weapons that you are making yourself of course it will take more time... creativity is the word here...
    Hope this has been helpful...

    as sarefein said...it depends on how hard ur costume is...for example...my hp cosplay costume took me abt three weeks...while my current ayu one is gonna take me abt 1/1/2 months...unless u are doing some elaborate ones..might even take up to 2 or three months...it all depends really and ur speed.

    You must start soon, or else the costumes may not turn out the way its suppossed to, and then you will need time to re-do it if neccessary.

    yep, yep! i'm from VJC Jap Club, and we WERE planning to go to the Dec cosplay; but i couldn't make it... so, i dunno, hoping to go to the next cosplay next year.

    demo... its so HARD to get information about upcoming cosplays! especially when one is really very connected... =P

    we hafn't decided wat to go as yet; but were hoping to start work as soon as possible and finish over the dec holidaes. Before school starts catching up wif us again.. nyao
