04-04-2003, 10:57 AM
The thread is self-explanitory I think :)

Just wondering if there's any other people our group can get together with and I dunno maybe compare notes on costumes or what not before the con, for maybe over the summer.:D

04-04-2003, 01:19 PM
i just managed to convince a friend to go with me :)

were both from he northshore

04-04-2003, 04:10 PM
Hmmm....Bit beyond my reach travel wise

04-04-2003, 04:20 PM
wher would you be coming from?

04-05-2003, 05:32 PM
I'm over in Northampton, so I'm like on the opposite side of the state :(, another girl on here Vialio is going too, she wanted to know about having a prty over the summer, but she's in plymoth. However, we did consider to meet at the con, care to join?

Mrrr, Evil, evil, Plymouth Massachusetts. Home of that big ugly rock thing, and wayyy tooo many tourists.

04-08-2003, 12:25 AM
WALTHAM! WAAAAAALLLLLTHAAAAAM!!!! [the neglected little brother of Boston...?] Iono, I hate this town XD

By the time Otakon comes around though, I'll be home in sunny Northern Virginia, and not this cold, dark, wet, dreary, miserable place......

04-08-2003, 03:22 PM
It's alot more miserable and wet here, since we got 2 in. of snow here, and I'm sick again!!!! :(

Sunny Virgina sounds good to me:)

04-11-2003, 12:43 PM
Yeah, now it's raining, great huh'?
Ah, I see yet another ddr fan, eh' RichAyanami?

Anyway, Blaze, we have so much to do yet, for the con! Oh, and stop doing Chris's costume! Or else he'll never learn! .... @_@

So, do we know for sure we'll all meet at the con.

04-11-2003, 04:28 PM
I live in the Boston area, and I'll be at Otakon.

04-11-2003, 06:04 PM
Would we like to have a meeting place at some given point?

04-23-2003, 04:10 PM
I live just south of Boston and I'm goin to Otakon. I would be up for getting together sometime over the summer or something. Email me or AIM me.

04-23-2003, 04:45 PM
I'd love to get together some time over the summer:) I'd get some decent work on MY costume, instead of my friend's >;(

Anyone want to consider meeting at the con?
I mean I have 1 photo shoot at 4 on Friday, and I dunno if there's anything else besides the dealer room I want to see.

;___; I would love to get together over the summer. I really don't care how far I have to drive.

04-25-2003, 11:41 PM
I would kill to go to Otakon!! I have the money to pay for a badge into the con but I have no place to sleep (hotel wise) and I'm under 18 so I need an adult with me in the hotel (which sucks). I could possibly convince my parents to vacation down there this year but knowing my luck, we'd go different dates than the convention. :(
I'm from Wakefield, Ma. If anyone wants to take me on a trip to Otakon I'd gladly come. ^^;;; I swear I only get car crazy after 4 hours. ^^;;; OOOOH! I want to go to Otakon soooooo bad!!!! ><!!!

04-26-2003, 08:30 PM
I know the feeling,(It takes me eight hours though, I went to canada and back for a funeral...) Out of curiosity, who would you consider going as in the next years for the convention?

*I can't wait to find a Squall and hug him to pieces!:)* (Surpresses urge to run in circles screaming"I wanna' go to the con!")

I'd like to do Fuma next summer, and one more of Muraki's costumes. ( Not because I'm obsessed with Muraki, but because the coat just looks so cool.)
Next to those..I'd really like to do a female costume..It's just that I can't think of any females that I'd like to cosplay as, that has curly brown hair like me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

04-27-2003, 03:52 PM
You can alwasy straighten your hair, or cut it, or they have colored hair spray for stuff like that.

Don't know what you like though or can't really suggest anything.
:( What do you like? What animes and such

04-27-2003, 07:51 PM
Curly brown-haired girl... I KNOW I've seen one... but I can't remember her name... let me think a while. :)

Vialoi Ketsueke
04-27-2003, 07:56 PM
I can't cut my hair because it will become big ball of fuzz. Putting spray in hair like mine dries it out, and practically kills it. I could straighten it...but it takes 40 minutes to do, and I don't own a hairdryer. x.x

04-28-2003, 12:36 PM
Sorry, the only person I can think of is that girl in Sailor Moon from the tv series... you'd have to like it to go as her I would think. If you do.. YEA! I can't remember her name though. I'm not a Sailor Moon fanatic, so... if any of them read this... *cowers in corner* don't hurt me...

Oh, and I'm just curious, who is that on your avatar?... it looks so familiar...

04-29-2003, 12:07 PM
Hm, right now i'm in the boston area for school, but come otakon I'll be in Fall River, which is in South eastern MA, but I'd still be up to meeting up with the New England / MA people going to compare notes...

also, considering this thread is about people in the area, if anyone needs another hotel roomie or anything, let me know, I'm looking for a few people to get a room with and time's running out. Thanks, and hope to meet up with everyone!

..Lol.. The character on my Avatar is from St. Prince. He is a character that was just introduced into the story. His name is Vladimir. If you would like you may go to St.Prince at http://clix.to/stprince and read the story that is being created. It's very interesting .....x.x And no I'm not just saying that because I wrote it. Anyway, if you read it, please tell me what you think

04-29-2003, 03:42 PM
Hmm, we would probably have some room with us. There would be enough room for 3 more people in a spare room we have that will either have 3 people in it, or just one. I'd have to ask cyankriby, we had trouble with a man last eyar that asked if his kids could room with us, and we had to turn him down because we didn't want anything to get stolen. So might get on back to ya there.

Vialoi Ketsueke
04-29-2003, 06:02 PM
z.z Did something get stolen from you guys before?

04-29-2003, 06:22 PM
No, but we had like, two playstations, and a gamecube, and so much other stuff, we were just being cautious.

(Hey, Vladimir is in a novel I'm writing... he doesn't grin insanely though! :) )

hmm. Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out what's going on with my 2 other friends that are on their honeymoon, they said they were interested, but I don't think they realized how important getting a room was, so I'll probably be going alone.

If you could keep me updated or at least contact me on fees you'd want or anything like that, you can AIM me at WindWakerLink. Thanks for responding...just trying to find a place to stay before its too late.

04-29-2003, 08:09 PM
Lol. I love the name Vladimir.
This Vladimir is sweet at first..but then he turns a little..Twisted. Lmao. Ooh, so you are a writer too, huh? That's so cool.

04-29-2003, 08:19 PM
Uhhuh, but we're getting off topic, pm me if ya want to talk about it more. Hehe! I wouldn't mind! :)

Did you all hear about the con picnic or something? I heard someone's making one for mass, I think. That would be nice.

neway, so, Too bad there aren't any cons IN Northampton, I'd sure enjoy that! :D

05-02-2003, 08:46 AM
YOu and me both Sam, we could probably walk there, and sleep at home :D :D :D

that would be so much easier!!!!

05-02-2003, 11:27 AM
I'm in Cambridge, and it looks like I've got a group of friends going. Still have yet to decide on the details yet, and it may depend on my work schedule as to when I can drive down (thurday in the day, or at night). And of course, our group will probably throw together something for us all to cosplay. But that'll be a secret (until we actually figure out what we're doing). ^_^

05-05-2003, 07:43 AM
Well, I already said earlier in the thread that I wanna get together with other Mass cosplayers/anime fans! We should have anime nights this summer or something. That'd be so much fun!
Someone should put this all together. I have no problem driving out to places, or picking people up on the way somewhere.

I've got a pretty big anime library to choose from if we do an anime night or something like that.

05-05-2003, 11:00 AM

I have a prety big collection myself, I have like 10 full series and lots of just movies. And working on collection two other series.

05-05-2003, 06:48 PM
Hmmm... nice collection of stuff. I need to finish up Arc the Lad... sooo cute.... I luv Arc. HIm and Kamui from x. I've got to finish collecting those first before any others.

05-07-2003, 05:27 PM
I've got Love Hina too...but I forgot about that. I think I'm missing the last couple of episodes tho. I've only watched a little of it, but it's funny. :)

05-07-2003, 10:00 PM
Well :razz: too you! Hotohori is a bum, and she won't collect any more of it till she gets a job, ain't that right Sam? (not wanting to go after you like cyan) Haha....:thumbsup:

Vialoi Ketsueke
05-07-2003, 10:12 PM
Oooooh, Hey you guys. I notice you are talking about having an anime watching party ..( I think anyway. I'm too lazy to go back and read everything.) ... .__. I wanna play too.

05-08-2003, 05:54 PM
Hey, I'm with Avatrix. *points upward* What's up? It was nice seeing you guys at Anime Boston. Anyways, we're planning an Otakon group. We're staying at the Wyndham hotel. Where are you guys planning to stay? Better get reservations fast, or there won't be any left! ^_^;;

It'd be nice to meet up with all the Anime Boston people at Otakon! *cheers* Anyways, I'm trying to get a Naruto group together (so many characters!), so if you're interested, make sure to e-mail (skuldhotohori@yahoo.com) me, ne?

05-08-2003, 06:11 PM
What's up with that Blaze!? Attack me in the pms not the boards!

I'm heading out with a friend (cyankirby) to Anime Boston! Hope to see you there!

05-08-2003, 09:51 PM
Sorry about that Sam, didn't mean it to be harsh or anything.
I'm just joking around anyways.

What is a skuldhotohori anyway?

05-09-2003, 11:14 AM

If anyone believes me....

05-09-2003, 10:25 PM
Hmm, just stumbled across this. Myself and 2 of my friends who live in the Boston area are planning to head to Otakon.
I'd also definately be up for some form of get together this summer before then also. I know we have a picnic comming up on the 28th of June, but theres still plenty of time to fit something else in get-together wise in July.

05-09-2003, 10:38 PM
Hello everyone, I see the thread is active once again. I think that an anime/possibly costume party would be great! I have some series DVDs to contribute (don't really want to name them all).

Skuld-chan-We're (Hotohori, Myself, and Blaze) staying at the Wyndham for Otakon too! If you feel like it, you should drop by our room (and maybe play some SSMB with us!)

Oh and Hotohori means that we're going to the picnic on June 28th, not Anime Boston. Too late to got to that con. But there's always next year...

Vialoi Ketsueke
05-11-2003, 07:08 PM
^_^ Hey, maybe we can all get together and have a Cosplay picnic. Everyone else gets to have picnics in their areas. ..Like California people get a picnic and the Phidelphia/NYC people get one..So, it would be cool if were had one too. The Massachusetts State Forest is very pretty, it has a couple of beaches, and lots of trees. It would be great to have a picnic there. It's in Carver/ Plymouth MA. Depending on the traffic it's only a half hour from Boston.

05-12-2003, 06:22 PM
There's one being planned in Boston that me, cyankirby and hotohori will possibly attend. If you give us a lift, we can bring some anime to watch later at like our hotel or something I dunno. It's in the "Other" section at the bottom of the conventions section. Sounds like it's gonna be a blast :)

Golgo M.
05-13-2003, 02:38 AM
I won't actually be in Massachusetts before Otakon, nor am I there now, but I am just responding as a former Massachusetts native to say it's good to hear that the Massachusetts community is banding together a little before Otakon. Hope you all have fun there.

05-14-2003, 06:04 AM
Will you be there for OTakon. If so who are you going as...so if you can't be at our little get togehter we can at leaast run up to you and say hi :)

Might be. If you see anyone that looks like the guy in my avatar on Friday or Sunday, it'll have a chance of being me.

05-17-2003, 09:23 AM
Yay, Boston anime people picnic! I want in. ^_^

05-17-2003, 03:26 PM
Check out the "Other" section of the conventions part, it's one of those (can't remember the name though) sorry

05-22-2003, 06:47 PM
Well, I'm from MA, and am planning on going to Otakon... Unfortunately, I really doubt I could do anything over the summer, such as the interesting little mini-con you guys have planned... (sigh)
Yet, if you're still looking for people from MA at Otakon, I'll be going as Seifer (FF8), and a friend of mine is costuming Spike (I really hope I don't have to explain that one =P)... So, if you're setting something up for the con, like a photo shoot, perhaps, we'd be glad to join you.

05-23-2003, 01:32 PM
GO SEIFER!!! Even Better Go Spike!!!!!!!

If you see a big fluffy arcanine attached to a evil ash possibly with a Black Waltz draggin behind that's me and my friends :)

05-23-2003, 02:14 PM
lol, that sounds absolutely incredible... We'll look for you guys, I definetly want a shot of that! XD

Vialoi Ketsueke
05-25-2003, 01:17 PM
When are we getting together again? Was it Saturday morning? If so, I think I'm going to have to find you, because I don't want to reveal my secret costume.. .Muhahaa.. ^_^

05-25-2003, 05:09 PM
I'm not sure if we are meeting somewhere at this moment, I suppose we can all get a big picture with one another at the cosplay photo shoot, I mean because WE WILL ALL BE THERE !! :)

Does that sound good to anyone??
