Informational Sticky Post!

This community is aimed at getting together a group of Disney and Steampunk loving individuals to do a cosplay/photo session at Dragon*Con 2011.

I'd like to focus on doing one group of Disney "Princesses" (loosely defined -- good female protagonist).

Details about where and when to meet, who the photographer will be, etc, will be hammered out at a later date.

Currently, the characters taken are as follows:

Ariel
Snow White
Belle
Cinderella
Alice
Jasmine
Tinkerbell
Pocahontas
Aurora
Mulan
Mary Poppins
Meg
Jane
Tiana
Eilonwy

Some ideas for characters not yet taken:

Princess Types:
Rapunzel (Tangled)
Giselle (Enchanted)

Non-Princess Types:
Wendy (Peter Pan)

This is not an exhaustive list. If you have other ideas, just let me know! I'd really like to be able to at least get the core group of Princesses, however.

Please feel free to join the community, drop ideas, or commit to joining us! We'd love to have you!

Tumblr

I was wondering if anyone else had a tumblr?
I'm starting to post my D*C projects (River Song and this mostly) and thought it'd be a good way to share everyone's progress.

Changing

Unfortunately due to some personal issues (mostly my grandmother- she had a car accident and is mostly OK now but can't really do anything other than walk around her house. I've been helping take care of her since the accident when she couldn't get out of bed without help.) I haven't had time to work on my costumes like I had planned.
Hopefully I'll see everyone there, and be able to meet up next year.

*EDIT-
I didn't realize Rapunzel wasn't taken, and I already have a few pieces suitable for her without much work as opposed to my Meg concept which would be almost completely from scratch.

Character/New to this...

Hi everyone.  I would love to do this but I am new and not really sure how?  This will be my 1st Con and I'm going by myself.  I am staying in a room with 3 other ladies and none of us have ever met.  Kind of nervous.  Anyway, if anyone is up for it I would love to dress up too but might need a tutor (lol).  Any suggestions on a plus size princess?  I have boys so I don't get to see too many.   : )
Anyone from the Charlotte, NC area?

Updated List

Can we get an updated list of who's who? Next week I'm planning on starting my costume, so if there's a more "cannon" princess that hasn't been taken yet I'd like to know in order to fill that spot before doing someone a little more unrecognizable like meg.

Bowing out

I'm really sorry to have to do this, but I have to bow out of costuming with this group. I haven't even started on my costume, and it's getting to the point that both time and money are an issue.

I'm really sorry :(

Day/Time?

Hey guys! It's only three-ish months to the con, so I wanted to know if we could nail down scheduling. I've got two other costuming groups to juggle, so it would really help me plan. Right now I've got one planned vaguely for Sunday morning/early afternoon, but other than that I'm wide open. I'm also willing to drop that group in favor of this one, if that's the only time everyone's available.

What say you?

Steampunk Disney

A "fan" on my Facebook Art page sent me this link. I am in the process of doing a Steampunk Disney collection, and I wanted to share some links if anyone is looking for inspiration. I would LOVE to see any costumes inspired by my designs. I only ask that you post pics on my fan page so I can see!
Here's my FB page:

I have done six Steam Disney designs, and plan on doing six more and making a calendar. Then I plan on moving on to Steampunk Villians.

About the Group, Doubles, Etc.

Since I've been getting this a lot, I've decided to do a post about it instead of answering each comment individually.

My initial idea was actually to have a small group comprised of the "core" group of Princesses, only one of everyone; I was trying to find an outlet to reach out to find other people interested and decided an LJ community would be the best way, never expecting to find so much interest in the idea. So I decided to expand the "Princess" definition to include all good-aligned female protagonists to get in more people since so many seemed to be honestly interested.

I never had any intention of having a massive group, especially since this is not only my first Dragon*Con (or major con) but my first time initiating a group.

At this time, I would prefer that there be no duplicates until a Cinderella is found. I would like the standard group of Princesses to be finished before we have 2 Snow Whites, Jasmines, and Tinkerbells and no Cinderellas.

I've been trying to get many opinions on doubles in order to make a final call, and will hopefully be doing that shortly (especially if a Cinderella comes around).

I hope that clears a few things up. If you're already participating and completely disagree with me, please feel free to let me know. I won't be upset, but I would like to know if everyone else is on a completely different track than I am.

Steampunk Princess Ideas!

I'm really excited about my first foray into costuming and found this great pic for inspiration!

Also, DeviantArt has a bunch of steampunk princess creations by some really creative people!  Yay!!

Updated Sticky

I updated the sticky with some suggestions, if you're considering joining in but not sure who to be. It is not an exhaustive list by any means, so if you have other ideas feel free to share.
