dreamer-21:

So, I am officially going to Anime USA this year! Wooo!! Now I need to figure out which cosplays I will be bringing with me. I know I want to bring Jack Frost and my Kuroko Tetsuya cosplay, but I’m not sure which other ones I want to wear xD Well, I have a little bit of time to figure it out.

Woohoo!

iced-potatte asked: Also when is the con schedule going to be available? (like for panels, guests, events, etc)

The schedule is typically released a few weeks before the convention.

iced-potatte asked: Mostly scheduled by other cosplayers. I tried checking the forums but they're all from 2013... Do you have any recommendations of where I should look??

We took our forum down for the 2014 year to rebuild it due to the number of issues users were experiencing. We recommend checking our Facebook community, “Anime USA Convention”, or checking websites like Meetup.com and Cosplay.com forums.

We’re excited to announce Kristin Costa as a Fashion Guest! Kristin is a talented alternative fashion designer, costumer, and artist based in the New York metro area. Her works are often based around a theme and draw upon everything from historical fashion to psychological concepts to create eye-catching and dramatic designs. We can’t wait to see what she has to share with our attendees!
