Cosplaying next August, any one else?

Hey every one, huge making project coming up for me (in terms of time, not size) because I'm going to SMASH! Cosplay Convention, Sydney, Australia in August 2010. I'm going with a group of friends from my school as Vocaloid characters and I get to be Kaito! Would any one else in Australia be going?

Any way, it should be awesome and I'm excited like hell even though it's 9 months away. I'll keep every one posted on how the out fit's going, I'm going to see if I can get the wig off eBay next week. Then we're all going to Spotlight (fabric store) a little after christmas to get a tonne of the same fabric, but different colors for each character. Then I'm doing the scarf, then the pants, then the undergarments and then the coat.

Any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated, I'm not amazing at sewing but it should turn out alright, I'll probably start the coat about 6 months from now because I don't want to grow out of it before the convention! By the way, any tips on dying my hair / getting a wig of bright blue? And also, dying my eye brows? (God, this'll look weird at school...)

More pictures.
I've added some drawn pictures (mine) of my design, you can see the front and back here.

First picture: Another cosplaying Vocaloid group, but no Gakupo or Megurine Luka. I'll be the one at the back left.
Second picture: SMASH! convention logo.

 Ahh no wonder.
Hehe. That's usually how I remember katakana, it has the English version nearby.

There's a j-pop song (forgot the title) and in it it has the word Excalibur, but it turns out as "es-cari-bori-guu".
Their pronunciation is so strict. They can only emulate a certain few syllables from other languages.

 It's a cool language I think, I watched a couple anime episodes in Japanese with subtitles and afterwards I instantly wanted to learn Japanese.
