I also expect to see a few Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who cosplays roaming around that weekend.
There are always a few, but I'm expecting slightly higher than usual, given the theme.

I wonder how many of these may not be available for screening because of expired licenses... :?

I like the cut of your jib, young lady, as that is some fine published Sailor Moon fanfiction that you have made reference to cosplaying. Not joking. I am crazy about those books and hope others are, too. *_*

Wanted to do the art up really minimalist and simple such that you could apply whatever thoughts you wanted to the whole thing. My own hopes and dreams are to see a lot of runaway space princess in all shapes and forms.

Yes, that series is amazing! It only makes sense since Meyer is in fact a Sailor Moon fangirl.

(I actually cosplayed Scarlet a few years ago, but Cinder is my favorite, so I'm psyched to be attempting her).
