Megacon is held in the middle of March in Orlando so it's only about 2 hours away. It's a three day event and we've been discussing how to go about getting our cosplay on. Since neither of us can sew, we've chosen three somewhat uncomplicated characters to go as. We're going to buy most items and alter them to make them right for our characters. I figure that since we can't make elaborate clothes, we can dazzle everyone with our accurateness!
