Hi all, my name is Ed Hoff, I am an organizer from Japan for the WCS and will be supporting Sunil and Erica (WCS Canada Directors) with WCS programming at Otakuthon this year. On top of that, I will be translating for KANAME☆ at his Q&A panel (Sat, Aug 23rd 12 noon, panel room 520AB) and will be a part of the International Cosplay panel (Sun, Aug 24th 3pm, panel room 524AB) after the WCS and Masquerade award ceremony at 1pm in the same room.

I just wanted to open up a thread to get an idea about what everyone is interested in and get us all thinking about the topics. If you have any question you would like to ask to KANAME☆ in particular or any other questions you may have for the International Cosplay panel put them down here and we can get an idea about how to use the time effectively. Remember that including translation, our 45 minutes will be cut in half to 22.5 minutes so we want to put together the most informative panels we can for you!

Hi ! First of all, thank you for organizing this panel :) !! And second of all, great idea to post here on the forums to get some info and I guess get prepared accordingly! That is very kind and thoughtful !

I'd have questions about how you pick the characters you want to cosplay; is it a question of wanting to do the cosplay, loving the character, feeling like you're totally in synch with the character, thinking it will look great, etc. ?

Also, do you feel it's more important to become a true master in one technique (example: sewing or armor-making) or is it best to be very good in various techniques (sewing+armor+props+acting... etc.) ?

I think these are my two most important questions ^_^
Thank you so much ! :D

Thanks Nijiro!

Those are some good questions, I'll let Kaname know about them and we'll make sure to respond to them during the panel. Hopefully see you there!

If anyone else has some questions you can think of, put them down here and we'll make sure to get to them.

Thanks as well for organizing this to prepare for KANAME☆'s Q&A!

This is kind of a very precise question, but would Kaname be able to give any makeup tips in general on making his cosplay makeups look so spot on and perfect? Especially about the eyebrows since from a lot of his pictures, it seems like he completely redraws them!

Thank you, and I look forward to the Q&A panel!
