If you pre-register now, you get a t-shirt and a cool badge! =^o^=.

Oh yeah, I'm gonna be there! I'll be going as Youji Kudou from Weiss Kreuz ^_^ yaaay!

08-20-2002, 02:07 AM
Oooh yeah, Nan desu kan is on the 20-22nd right? Well, have fun over there Michi! And take lotsa pretty pictures for us! =^o^= What are you planning to go as at N.D.K? ;D

I hope the Metreon does that anime fest again.. that was sooo much fun... I went there last year instead of ParaCon. :thumbsup: Hopefully next year it won't fall on the same day as something else I've already planned. :cheers:

Mm, I'll be Kuja from FF9 *points at avatar*, Morrigan from Darkstalkers, Mai from KOF, and Irvine from FF8... some other stuff. ^^

Yeah i was at the Metreon festival last year.. I might go check out Paracon this year..

08-21-2002, 01:40 PM
IS the Metreon having another anime festival? I heard about it *after* it took place T-T

08-21-2002, 05:23 PM
I hope it is! It was lots of fun since it was just local cosplayers and friends, y'know? It was laid back to where I actually wanted to participate in the cosplay contest and watch anime (s'where I saw Galaxy Angel ^^)... But I do think going to a restaurant in Kuja was one of the funnier parts. XD I'll be very sad if it doesn't happen again.. of course there's Animagic and YaoiCon in October already. ^_^;; mew..

08-21-2002, 08:11 PM
Yeah! FF costumes!! Take plenty picture of urself too Michi!!! >D

I couldn't find any information about the Metreon con. Don't they have their website?

I wished I was going to Yaoi con ;_; *sniff* (have 1 more year till be able to go to yaoicon* ^___^. Animagic is a bit far from me o.o. But my friend's are going, and I wanna come aloooong ;___;

09-06-2002, 10:24 PM
Ah crap. I might not go to NDK now. So.. then I'll go to ParaCon. I'll know for sure in like two days. *cry*

It looks like I'll be making it to Paracon also, so in a sense Cosplay.com staff will be there to take pictures for the site. :) I'm not sure if I'll be wearing costumes, due to the heat, as even Shinji would be a little too warm, and Pen-Pen would prolly melllt. ^_^;; So if I'm not in costume, look for me wearing either my Initial D T-shirt or my Cosplay.Com T-shirt. :) I'll be there from the morning until it ends, so hope to see you all there! CIAO!

About the Metreon ANime fest... gaah it sucks now... the original store is no longer where it used to be... alotta things have changed, and ownership of the store has shifted to the Microsoft sroe owner...which practically eatys up the entire store front ^^;;

I hope the Metreon anime fest happens again though.... they were able to pull off a Escaflowne movie event a few months ago.

09-21-2002, 01:56 PM
Yes, when I went to visit the store last, it changed a lot ~_~;;*hisss*

09-21-2002, 05:30 PM
Aoishi==>Awww, i really hope she comes ;_;. Umm, yeah, we're suppose to meet at the gate at 8:30 a.m, at the ticket booth. I'm gonna try to get there earlier to see if the people get there at the right spot. Yeah, I wanna do some gravi costumes, but there's no place to put my clothes, and it's gonna be hooooot @_@. Con ends at 8:00 p.m. ^_^. So, it's much later than last year. You guys should get your pictures taken on one of those thing that take pictures when you're on a ride ^o^.

Eurobeat==> Ahh! You must be that shinji I saw taking pictures of people at cons eh? ^_^. Hope to see you there too ^_^.

Babbit==>AWWWW!!! *hugs* babbit-chan. Zannen desu neee ;_;. When you're moving? To where?

Kenshin==>Weren't there some kind of problem with their website? Last time I checked, they didn't mentioned about metreon o.o.

09-21-2002, 07:58 PM
Moving to Walnut Creek within the week, Jigoku-san ^^

09-22-2002, 12:38 AM
I heard that the Metreon Festival is happening on the 12th of October, I think.

I'm still deciding about ParaCon, I don't think I'll go. I won't be cosplaying if I do.

09-22-2002, 01:01 AM
Really? I'll look into it, Michi ^_^ Maybe I'll go with my sister and her boyfriend..

09-22-2002, 01:09 AM
my costume wont be ready in time for that... by the time it is ready the first con ill be able to wear it to will be ones in june and july... weak...

09-22-2002, 01:44 AM
Ah well you could always go out of costume, Chen :)

09-22-2002, 09:23 AM
Everyone have fun! I'm just really not in the mood to go out today anyways. ^^; I've had a rough weekend. I look forward to Animagic, the Metreon Festival, and YaoiCon though! ^_^!

09-22-2002, 11:38 PM
YEAAAH! Yaoicon starts around September right??? I'll be 18 by then!!!!! ^o^!!!!!!WHEEE!!!!!

Hey I'm tired too.. I had to wake up at 6 to get there by 8 30am.. well i had fun.. but.. i still want a T-shirt.

09-23-2002, 02:32 AM
YaoiCon's in October this year, so it'll probably be around Sept/Oct next year. ^^

Aaaaand it's hard NOT to run into, and see everyone that attends Animagic. XD It's very open, and not too big. I luurrrrve it.

Heh. Maybe I'll make NEXT year's ParaCon. *collapse* I'm looking more forward to the Metreon Anime Fest...

09-23-2002, 07:26 PM
