Question about the Cosplay Repair station

Post by what-the-spork » Sun Dec 11, 2011 10:26 pm

So this might be a stupid question but I need to know ahead of time, just in case.
I was there last year and I know there were sewing supplies and such
but is there crazy glue/hot glue? (I'm making a heavy pin and I'm anticipating it won't stay for the whole 3 days :/ )
Thank you~

if they dont have any which I suspect they should just ask around. I always carry a supply of hot glue, sewing kit, paints, ect. Mainly because the monster suits I wear always need a bit of touch up here and there.

I always have hot-glue with me in my repair kit, and I'll be at Cosplay HQ for the majority of the weekend, so even if the repair station doesn't have it, I will. :)

While from the above posts it's clear you should be able to find a glue gun from someone if you need it during the weekend, my suggestion would be if you truly anticipate needing something during a convention, then try to bring it yourself and keep it in your hotel room. Obviously depending on travel and lodging circumstances this isn't always an option for everyone, and the cosplay repair station is GREAT for unexpected emergency repair, but if you truly anticipate a need for something and can manage it, it is smarter to have your own [whatever-it-is] on hand than have to rely on the chance that others are willing and able to help you.

Alright, thanks- the pin is all set up so once I bake it (sculpy) I'll see how sturdy it is-
