Okay... it's getting to be about that time, so is anyone planning to cosplay characters from Guilty Gear for this year's Acen? Just seeing if there's potential for a group or not. :)

Dizzy here, I won't be at Acen until Saturday...and I have two other costumes, so I don't know when or for what I should be wearing which costumes.

Um, I'll see if my niece wants to be May again for Saturday or Sunday. (I feel bad because our GGX group last year kinda accidentally never included her and she had to be May all solo ^_^*)

Saturday would work out great! I'm doing KOF cosplay on Friday and Sunday's still up in the air. And this time Yui, I'm going to make sure not to leave out your niece...if she goes as May of course!! Also...are you still going as Baiken? :D

Yui

Eep...you weren't supposed to bring that up. Well, there's several reasons why I'm not bringing Baiken: my sister has reclaimed/hidden the shoes, the claw is MIA, I still haven't figured out the hair to my satisfaction. Um, plus I really want to refigure the, um...upper torso section before I use her again. The thing is that she's probably my favorite female character from just about anything, and I don't think I do her design justice mself. The costume was pretty good for an early one, but I still think I looked more like Testament cosplaying as Baiken ^_-* (And I'm getting so excited about being Testament for AX that I haven't really bothered to upgrade Baiken yet.) And the reason above everything else is that I have too many cosplays for ACen this year already, especially after the call went out for j-rock costumes.
Yeah. But there will be a Baiken at ACen, I hear. An "accurate" one - whatever that indicates...so I think I'm off the hook for representing her. Whew.
Um, but my niece is happy to be part of a group this time. (We've got her for Precis for the Star Ocean group, but I can make that anytime.) I'll have to get pics of all of you. ^_^ Now to figure out where we stashed the huge anchor...

JyuuSan

Whoops....sorry about that. :thumbsup: That's too bad because I thought you made a good Baiken! You were one of the few that actually posed w/ their one eye closed and had their arm hidden. I'm happy though that your niece wants to be a part of the group!

What a coincidence!! That's what I'm wearing to Acen!! ;)

Wai Wai!^-^ That works out well then. The dizzy outfit I chose is the sailor outfit. (of course the shirt won't be quite THAT high) That gives me more time to work on my wings. The darn wings use soooo many strategically placed and sized feathers that I have to keep on buying more. I was originally going to make her traditional black and white thing...but my mom took one look at a picture of what I was making and she told me to stop making it. The outfit looks a bit too dominatrix type. I probably would feel very uncomfortable walking around in it anyway.

JyuuSan

That's okay. It's cool that you're going as Dizzy in the first place! :bigtu: For some reason, I haven't seen many in the US cosplay as her. I wouldn't have worried about being too uncomfortable though. Then again, I am going to be wearing a tube top and skirt!! :thumbsup:

That's cool. I have seen some pics of the traditional outfit of dizzy in the us, but I haven't seen one person yet that has cosplayed the sailor dizzy. That works out better for me then I guess. Yay! I give you a box of pocky for wearing a tube top and skirt! Ja ne' ^-^

I am going to be Baiken for most of the time. I had some friends who will be doing Faust, Ky, May, and maybe a Johnny and a Sol. If you would like to meet up with us (some,all, or just me), I will be chillin in the lobby Thursday night in the middle of the elevators at midnight wearing a tiger tail and I *might* have dyed my hair pink by then. Booyah. It would be cool to hook up and play (we might be bringing our ps2) with other GGX cosplayers...

Also, since my masqerade costume will be rather time consuming to put on (and hear you have to be there really early) I'll only be available on saturday afternoon, but not later. Oh, I'm probably free on sunday too. ^_^

(PS- *excited grin* I hope I was the 'accurate' Baiken you heard of. Although I still haven't found shoes to convert or make yet, I think I'll do her justice... er... unintentional pun)

Yui
04-23-2003, 01:23 AM
Hehe, I think you were. Good luck! Keeping one eye shut the whole day is actually tough work...I started to get this weird little twitch...um, so practice and do some cheek exercises or something. (Yeah, I noticed the accidental pun after I wrote it. ^_^*)
I'll be stalking you all for pictures...um, well, I'll be stalking you all anyway as I must escourt my niece.
Anyway, I guess there is definitely a group going on now, though, so I can stick you guys on the sticky.

YoumaIru
04-23-2003, 01:33 AM
Yay! I've been sticky-ed! Er... That's a good thing, right? *lol* Cool.

(laughs, YAY! My first stalker!)

Oh, I have been exercising. I keep one eye closed at work while I'm resetting tables in the big dining hall. >.< I run into things a lot, and i've got bruises to prove it!
I like your Baiken by the way. Very nice. But, being a girl with... *ahem* ample cleavage.. I think I have a slight accuracy advantage. *laughs* I'm afraid I'm terribly competative and terribly perfectionistic.

Yui
04-23-2003, 01:40 AM
Okay, I'm glad you're going for that kind of accuracy then...I just had alarmed thoughts you'd be removing an appendage or something when you said that. ^_-*
Yeah, I'm perfectionistic, tho...which is why until I figure out some kind of fake convincing cleavage (something I'd probably only do for Baiken...I wouldn't want to make a habit of this) I'm gonna keep being the bishie guys instead.
By the way, would someone recruit some accurate Anji's and Venom's, please? Preferrably multiple ones? Yum. Yum. >^_^< Hehe.

YoumaIru
04-23-2003, 01:47 AM
No FanBoys! (there's something a little too fruity about a guy turning his fans into a giant butterfly)
I want a hot Axl.... Mmm... I think I'll stick with glomping Vashy-bear and my good buddy Faust.
And I have to find a Bridget. I have been contracted to hunt them down and knee them in the groin to test their gender. *laughs evilly* er.. eh-heh.. yeah.

JyuuSan
04-23-2003, 05:44 PM
I leave for a few seconds and everybody........just kidding!! :p Anyways, it's great to have your friends aboard YoumaIru!! I have to keep my eye out for ya on Thursday! One of my friends (I'm going w/ a group of about 15 people) has GGXX and another is planning to bring his PS2, so hopefully we'll be able to play on the hotel TVs.

Also, good news to Yui, bad news to YoumaIru, I have two friends planning to go as Anji and Venom. I always thought Anji was secure in his manliness to make butterflies out of his fans....just like Testament is with wearing a skirt!!:rolleyes: All jokes aside, I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Acen and don't care about that accurate cleavage thing Yui... just the fact that you went as her was cool in itself!!:D *goes back to jamming on GGXX Soundtrack!*

YoumaIru
04-23-2003, 11:17 PM
I agree, props to Yui for the Baiken cosplay (and attempt at cleavage). ^_^

More people! Yay! At this rate, we should have our very own Guilty Gear Mini-Con on thursday! Oh, and Saeru said she might not be able to be Ky on saturday because she's got two other costumes she'd like to do, but she'll see. And we've got plenty of people around anyway.

I'm so excited! I don't want to do my homework or my labs or my projects or my finals!! ... but I will. *sighs and goes off to do her ever-growing mound of assignments* NYA!

Yui
04-23-2003, 11:48 PM
Now I'm all sad I'm missing out being in the group (ACen's just got too full for me...let me know if anyone's planning on Reactor/Kazecon later this year, tho.) But wow...this will be big...very impressive. I guess I'll have a lot of competition looking for stuff in the dealers' room this time. :: plug,plug - but please visit the art show for some new GGX arts ^_^::

Well, I'll bring my PS too (if I remember last year correctly, the hotel TVs allowed access to hook-up PS2's...um, but I'm bringing an extra TV again just in case.) And I can subject you guys to Lapis Lazuli, too. Heheh...

JyuuSan
04-24-2003, 01:33 PM
Way ahead of you Yui... I got their Guilty Gear Vocal Album! My favorite Guilty Gear vocal is "Blue Water Blue Sky" and my favorite bonus track is "Dream Maker" I made a similar posting in the obscure J-Rock thread on the Music Chat Board. You wouldn't happen to have any more Lapis Lazuli stuff, would ya? :D

Um,Jyuu,Sorry to burst your bubble.......ah,who'm I kidding?!


Hey Jyuu,guess what? Anji ain't going! BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I can hardly believe it! Acen's next week!!!! Who's all ready to GO!!!!!:D

Alisa
05-05-2003, 10:15 PM
Yeaah!!! Alisa is! All costumes that I am planning on wearing are completely done. I just have to finish my cousin's Inu Yasha costume. I hope people don't think I am some kinda whore in my Dizzy outfit though. *shakes head at brother*

If they do, they can meet my close and personal friend Mr. Scythe, followed by my friend's running buddy...Mr. Poolstick!! :skidude2:

YoumaIru
05-06-2003, 03:34 PM
w00t!!!! My finals are over. ^_^ And just so you's all know, I think my sis might be coming along... and if I sew REALLY REALLY FAST she might be Millia Rage. ^_^ We just keep getting bigger and bigger. ^_^
Also, I went to a pre-acen party this weekend and it was SO NICE to be able to walk around and sorta test out my costume... which means that it is nearly finished! Yay again!

JyuuSan
05-06-2003, 03:41 PM
How was the party and where was it? :)

YoumaIru
05-06-2003, 04:46 PM
^_^ Is was at Saeru's house. ^_^

It was ok. We were all kinda tired (with finals coming up and all) but the party went pretty well. There was the usual amount of GGX and DDR going on. As well as our costume trip. We like to get fully in costume and then go walk around town or in stores. Last year it was the mall. This year we went to Goodwill and WalMart. There was Baiken, a monk, a woman samurai, May, and the rest of the costumes weren't quite finished. Well, we also had a Gundam character and our friend Nick looked like one of the Blues Brothers. *laughs* But we wandered around and got the usual funny looks. It was fun. ^_^

JyuuSan
05-06-2003, 05:06 PM
That's cool that you guys do that! During cons, I usually wear my costumes to public places (mostly because I don't feel like changing!) with various reactions. The cutest reaction I got was when I cosplayed as Shoma from Rival Schools. A little boy asked me what baseball team I played for!!!:)

Alisa
05-07-2003, 07:48 AM
Why Thank you! ^-^ I feel much better.

I guess now's a good time to ask this: When would be a good time for everyone to meet as a group on Saturday? :)

Alisa
05-08-2003, 10:24 PM
For me 3:00pm sounds good. I also want to be in the IY cosplay group, so yah... ^-^

YoumaIru
05-08-2003, 11:59 PM
Hmm... well, anyone know the usual masqerade round-up time? I'd like to get big photo ops in before then. ^_^

JyuuSan
05-10-2003, 12:38 PM
All I know about the masquerade is that it's supposed to be setup at 6pm, so that probably means people will be lining up then. I think 2pm or 3pm would be fine for me. What's cool for everybody? :)

Yay!! I've made my 100th post :dance: (I know......but I don't post all that often!)

Yui
05-10-2003, 04:32 PM
Eep, just to let you guys know I'm making a trip out to my niece's house tonight to inspect anchor damage and see if I can reconstruct it. (My sister was all shocked Bri wanted to be May again and insists the costume itself needs to much repair...but I'll see what I can do to revive it tonight.)

That is great that you niece is going to be May again. She is soooo cute! I am definately going to get a picture with her this year. ^-^

05-13-2003, 03:09 PM
Since it's only a few days away, how about we all meet as a group on Saturday at 3pm by that big sculpture thingy that every other group seems to be meeting? Is that cool with everyone? :)

YoumaIru
05-13-2003, 04:02 PM
Sounds good to me. ^_^ See you all there, if not on thursday night.

JyuuSan
05-13-2003, 04:16 PM
I could still meet your group on Thursday Night. If all goes well, I should be free around 9 or 10pm. Where are you going to be?

YoumaIru
05-13-2003, 04:25 PM
We'll be arriving about the same time. At midnight I'll be chilling in the upper lobby wearing a cat tail and lookin for people from the forums. ^_^

JyuuSan
05-13-2003, 04:42 PM
Cool, I'll make sure to look out for ya! :)

Saeru
05-14-2003, 01:39 AM
I'll post something on the mailing list about the times being at 3:00 pm on Saturday. ^_^

Hey everyone! Finally got around to posting on this thread. Things have been SOOOOO busy finishing up all my last minute work. Its hectic, ne? But its all worth it in the end.

I do have a question, though. I've got my Robo-Ky outfit, but I've also got my normal Ky outfit from last year. Should I bring them both? Anyone interested in BUYING my Ky from last year? (theres pics in my gallery) Or know anyone that'd want to wear it for the con? ( I was considering renting it out for like...ten bucks or something.)

And I'm so happy! I have such a beautiful sword. So pretty.
But its not as accurate as it could be. *sigh* Its 6 feet tall. o.o

I really look foreward to seeing everyone there!

Yui, if your cousin goes as may, she HAS to get a picture with my sister. That'll be priceless. (my sis is May, too. ^_^)

At any rate, thats all I've got to say for now. *wave*

JyuuSan
05-14-2003, 06:05 PM
You can bring both if it's not too much trouble. I could always ask someone in my group if they're willing to rent it. I'm interested, what are the main differences between Robo-Ky's outfit and Ky's? I haven't played GGXX too often to notice.

Saeru
05-14-2003, 08:48 PM
Well, this is kind of an inside thing, to be honest. When my friend got Robo Ky in Guilty Gear, we always made him the black version of Ky so we could tell them apart.
So, my Robo Ky outfit is black and gold, and my Ky outfit is White and blue. ^^
That, and I'll paint my face silver for Robo-Ky, and make the menu noise when I walk. ^_^

JyuuSan
05-14-2003, 09:49 PM
Gotcha. Hey I'll see you with YoumaIru tomorrow night! :)

Alisa
05-18-2003, 10:17 PM
The GGX(X) group came out nicely didn't it? I am really sorry that I was kinda late...was taking my kitty friend shopping in the vending area. OoooOOoWwow I had uber loads of fun!!! ^-^

YoumaIru
05-19-2003, 12:06 AM
I tried to wait for you, but people were already taking pictures at 10 til! However, it was uber cool and my first big groupie pic. ALSO *excited jibbering* I GOT YUI'S BAIKEN PRINT!!!! It was sooooooooo booootiful... Ooooo... and for your entertainment I will be putting a small sort of story in my journal to relate the funny battle for it between me, Vash, and my stalkee Gendo. It was very funny. ^_^

But anyway, thanks for coming ya'll!

JyuuSan
05-21-2003, 06:41 PM
Yes, I must concur, thank you everyone!! I had no idea we would get so many people to show up for the group...and no idea people would take pictures of us for about ten minutes!! :thumbsup: My scythe started to get heavy, but other than nicking Johnny's hat a couple of times, it was all good!! :D

Alisa
05-22-2003, 08:07 AM
I am pretty new to the cosplay photoshoots, so I was asking the May next to me, what type of poses to do next. It was really fun and started getting some type of photo high. - That doesn't mean I am photogenic though...eek I think I like blinked or made some kind of odd face in about 89% of the pictures taken.
