newbie question, I intend to cosplay one of the days and I'm wondering is there a main cosplay day? I'm sure there are some people in cosplay every day any way but if there's a main day when the majority of people are I'll make the effort for that day. I still have to look in to ideas so no idea what the cosplay will be yet.

There's no main cosplay day, but there are days where a group photo happens. Like if you're cosplaying as a dc character, you can meetup with a whole bunch of other dc cosplayers on that day for the photoshoot.

I'm also in the VERY beginning stages of gathering parts for this (potential spoilers for GOT fans who haven't read the books):

To continue gathering costume parts for this, I just bought a grey shawl from here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. The color shawl I chose is called "stone grey." You know...

Essentially, I'd like to go for this look:

Anyways, now I will have the wig and the shawl, so the last step will be purchasing the dress and the costume make-up/prosthetics. Needless to say, I am VERY excited for this!

Alright, my Ahsoka Tano commission is rolling :) Just waiting for a local artists commissions open to get the headpiece started as well... otherwise the body is underway!

Anyone know of any yearly Star Wars cosplay shoot?

My first year I kept hearing that Friday/Saturday were the biggest days for cosplay, however it's really difficult to tell because there is still a LOT of cosplay happening on the others. It's possible Fri/Sat are still the "biggest", but it's probably not by much in comparison. If anything, just cosplay on the days that your schedule allows for it! Unless of course you're looking at planned photoshoot days as well

My pajama pants are made but I still have to add the stripes and I need to cut & glue some details to my shirt.  The Wife's embroidery is ready for pickup.

Just purchased my dress from Etsy this week! Making progress... ;)

So, I just got my dress in the mail - apparently, it came from China in record time  :o Anyways, the main part/cloak fits me perfectly, but the inner dress had a hole for your head that was SO small, I couldn't even fit my own head through it! And I have a pretty average-sized head...

To get it on, I decided to cut a little "V" in the front instead of exchanging it, since I'm likely going to mess up the inner part for the cosplay look anyways - i.e. with

But, now I have to decide whether I'm going to keep similar to as it is and make it a "rip" of sorts, or if I'm going to sew some extra fabric in there...

I still have to look in to ideas so no idea what the cosplay will be yet.

This response may be a little too late but also I feel like it's worth noting that it all depends on your schedule and how you plan to experience the con, which in the end differs for everyone and which is why there really is no main cosplay day. For example, if you're into the Doctor Who fandom and are cosplaying from Doctor Who, you'll probably see more Doctor Who cosplayers on the day that the panel is being held or during an autograph session. Also take into consideration if you're going to spend a majority of the day in a room like Hall H or Ballroom 20. If you're the type of cosplayer who wants their craftsmanship to be seen and who wants photos, then maybe cosplaying on a day where you're mostly staying inside a dark room is not ideal. Again, it all depends because I cosplayed from Agents of SHIELD during the Marvel TV panel and made many friends and had an impromptu photo session with the people I met. It's all up to you in the end.

This year I'm just positive that I'm taking my TARDIS dress again, and want to go as Buffy on Sunday! Would very much like to go as enchantress, but it all depends on whether I finish it on time...

Finally decided I am going to cosplay, PN and Friday or Saturday. Now I just gotta make the costume lol. (Thankfully, mine is simple.)
