View Full Version : Cosplay Groups at Fanime 2003

04-20-2003, 06:05 AM
Because Ziggy hasn't made this thread yet, I will. :p Other cons have one, so now Fanime gets one. I've never thought of Fanime as one of those gathering-at-this-time-schedule cons, but why the heck not~ Woo-hah. I'll edit this first post repeatedly. So, what's going down?

If you see a group you're part of on the ?? part of the list, PLEASE give me a time and location. Likewise, if a group you're part of is on the list without a time or place, I'll need that too. ^_^

Hotel lobby refers to the Westin (Fanime's main hotel).

- Friday -
Angel Sanctuary @ noon in hotel lobby
Rurouni Kenshin @ 4pm outside con center; grassy area
Sakura Taisen @ 4pm in hotel lobby
Chobits @ 5:30pm in hotel lobby
Gundam @ 6pm in hotel lobby
Shoujo Kakumei Utena @ 7pm in hotel lobby

- Saturday -
Fushigi Yuugi @ 10:30am outside con center; grassy area
Hand Maid May @ 11am outside dealer's room
Dead or Alive @ 1pm outside hotel near fountains
X/1999 @ 2pm outside hotel
Inuyasha @ 2pm
Cosplay.com @ 2-2:30pm outside con center; grassy area
Final Fantasy (+ FFX-2) @ 3pm outside hotel near fountains
Prince of Tennis @ 4:30pm

- Sunday -
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou @ 11am in hotel lobby
Star Wars @ noon in front of dealer's room
Fruits Basket @ 1pm in hotel lobby

- ?? -
Angel Sanctuary
Tokyo Mew Mew

04-20-2003, 01:37 PM
Ahhh.. er... Maikaerin and I are gonna run around in Angel Sanctuary costumes (Maikaerin as Madhatter, me as Setsuna.. maybe) and... anyone else doing AS? Planning a group? Already have a group planned? Want to meet up in a group? Need more characters?? Mer?!? o_O

(HAH! This time I remembered in time to log out of soshi's account. x_X)

04-20-2003, 02:13 PM
Fruits Basket and Gravitation gatherings would be nice. But it depends on if there are enough cosplayers before we set a time. ^_^;;;

And yeah, Mankin-ness! Friday is good. Late afternoon would be nice, considering I have a 3 hour drive and I don't know exactly when I'll get there. ^^;

04-20-2003, 02:48 PM
*goes to edit first post*

Chaaaas~ I have an Anna if we don't have one for Mankin~ I forget if you said you had friends doing stoof. How's like, 5 pm? :o

04-20-2003, 04:27 PM
Yaaaaay! An Anna! Yeah, I'm just brining a Yoh. (Ren can't make it.) So we'll have so far... Pirika, Horo, Anna and Yoh... IT'S A START! :3

5 sounds good~!! ^_^

04-20-2003, 08:53 PM
I remember reading in another thread that another girl and her friends will be cosplaying as the FFX-2 girls on Saturday afternoon. So, maybe you can stick that in there as well because my friends and I will be there Saturday.

Kenshin 4pm friday.. in front of dealers room? all i know its the same place and same time

04-21-2003, 12:11 AM
*edits post again* Organizing is fun. :F

Yay Chas~ I think it sounds pretty good. Two duets that match, at least. ^_^

04-21-2003, 02:12 PM
Gundam Cosplay Group.
Me and Babbit-Chan will organize this thing.
We need cosplayers for this:
The UC Gundam Universe
and any of the alternate universes, i.e Wing, G Gundam, Gundam After War X, Turn A Gundam and MS Gundam Seed.

04-21-2003, 03:52 PM
Yeah postiviespace that was me! Saturday afternoon sounds great! Other than that....my groups is just going with themes; Friday nite Chobits, Sat morning "Girls who kick ass!" Sat nite FFX-2, and Sunday morning "School girl sunday morning" where so far we have a Miaka, Kagome (Me!) Sana, and San?(the chick from blood)....

.....we need to get organized....

04-21-2003, 08:57 PM
This is a thread for photoshoots and groups you'd like to get people to join and etc.. Not for recruiting, or saying what you're wearing at Fanime (there's another thread for that).. ^^; Do you want to try and get a Chobits gathering on Friday evening, Mink?

04-21-2003, 11:30 PM
I was going to ask about a Chobits group. Only cause I am sooo excited to wear my Freya! hehe ^_^

04-21-2003, 11:41 PM
So Chobits group on Friday it is, then. ^^

Aoshi Shinomori
04-22-2003, 02:51 AM
Inuyasha on saturday.. i dont know what time.. probably before noon

04-22-2003, 07:49 PM
Can people on the Fanime board try and see what gatherings are being made, and point this thread out to them? ^^ I wanna be as comprehensive as possible.

Updated it with new stuff earlier, btw, I just didn't post about it. ^_^

04-22-2003, 08:16 PM
Michi: i'll do it. Just give me a few minutes. all right done. here is the thread on the fanime board:

04-23-2003, 04:43 PM
Nuu. x_X I didn't want you to post my post, that thing's going to be edited a bajillion times. ^^; I just wanted you to link it so they knew it existed.

Is there a time for your Gundam group?

04-23-2003, 07:33 PM
Don't know if I'll have my Naryu costume finished by fanime. But does anyone wanna do a Legend of Zelda gathering?

04-23-2003, 08:07 PM
Michi: sorry.. but I think our Gundam will be by the pool outside of the hotel by friday...don't know what time though.

04-23-2003, 08:14 PM
videogirlc ~ PikminLink and I'll be there as Link and Malon.. I dunno about a gathering, but we can take photos on Saturday. ^^

Ryu ~ It's okay, just edit it and link here if you can?

04-23-2003, 08:24 PM
Michi: ok.

04-24-2003, 12:43 AM
That works Michi. Hopefully I can finish my costume by then.

04-24-2003, 01:54 AM
Hey Michi... you can put 3pm on Saturday as a set time for the FFX-2 folks. =)

Anyone know a good place to meet up at? Myself and the girl that's also going with her friends as the FFX-2 girls are basically first timers to the con... so we have no idea where anything is. LOL

04-24-2003, 03:12 AM
I think the lobby of the Westin would be default.. Or maybe outside where the dealer's room was last year... Heh, I've never tried to set up meeting places at Fanime, after going there three years in a row. XD;

Aoshi Shinomori
04-24-2003, 03:36 AM
hmm i know there is the lobby and there is a water fountain outside.. and outside the dealers room.. heh now that michi mentioned it. there was never a meeting place for gatherings except for the kenshin one outside the dealers room.

04-24-2003, 04:08 AM
There was that big empty area where the line always was... I dunno if it'd be a good photo spot, though. Maybe up where people were practicing for the masquerade? Oy, I should go down to the convention center and check it out again. XD

04-24-2003, 12:40 PM
Michi: I set up the link from the fanime board to here. might as well check it out :D

Mandy Mitchell
04-25-2003, 02:21 AM
Is there going to be a regular Final Fantasy gathering that spans over all the other FF titles? I'm bringing my Lulu costume to Fanime this year.

04-25-2003, 02:54 AM
Mandy ~ Want to arrange one? ^^

Mandy Mitchell
04-26-2003, 12:53 AM
I was just wondering if it could just be combined with FFX-2 since they all fall under Squaresoft.

Miaka No Baka
04-27-2003, 11:12 AM
ooh there should be a tokyo mew mew group too. I know at least myself and my friend should have costumes, but perhaps there's other people who will too. But yeah add it to the tentative list and I'll go make a thread and see if others are interested in it too.

Miaka no Baka

04-27-2003, 04:36 PM
Woah, does anyone have an updated list of the times? Just wanna make sure when to wear the Mad Hatter costume...
... it's gonna be hot up in dat joint! Represent!!!!

... sorry, just watched Malibu's most wanted... ^^'

04-27-2003, 06:57 PM
Okay I combined FF with FFX-2 if that's okay for the X-2 people... and I added Tokyo MewMew. Maikaeirn, I update the list whenever I'm given a time/group.. and I haven't gotten a confirmed time for Angel Sanctuary. Want to give me one? :P

Aoshi Shinomori
04-30-2003, 01:17 AM
ok so far we have Inu Yasha at 2pm on saturday

04-30-2003, 01:23 AM
Fixed Inuyasha's time. Anything new for the groups in any of the ?? sections?

05-05-2003, 04:23 PM
Hi Michi. Could you add the Hand Maid May gathering on Saturday at 11am, in front of the dealer room? :)

It looks like we're going to have 2 Mays, a Sara, a Kazuya Saotome and I'll be Nanbara. Hopefully more will join in. :)

Thanks. :D

05-05-2003, 06:52 PM
*salutes* Added. You also reminded me that barely any groups have a location. x_x; Where d'you wanna put DOA? I have a place in mind but I forget where it is exactly. o.o I need to revisit the area. ^^;

05-05-2003, 07:44 PM
Um... how about in front of the dealer room? Since it's easy to find and if I remember correctly there's a pretty of room near the entrance?

Though I'm open to suggestions. :)

05-05-2003, 07:59 PM
Well, I dunno if it'll be in the same place as last year. It wasn't there in 2001 and 2000...

There's this pretty place I saw some cosplay photos taken at.. I think it's on the left side of the hotel/con center near the fountains? I'll go look up some Fanime photos from years back and point out what I mean. ^_^;

Padme Skywalker
05-06-2003, 12:57 PM
I am going to Fanime 2003. Are you going to set up a time when all cosplay.com members can meet & then maybe go out side for a group pic....That is what we do with our SW Cosplaygroup. I will post this thread over there to.

As for what costume I'm wearing? Agh! I dont know! I need helpfiuring that out. I have a poll up to help me decide here:


05-06-2003, 04:27 PM
Friday for chobits sounds great as long as we dont end up changing our minds (I doubt it). Sorry about posting about costumes! I was thinking...or rather typing out loud...well not really out loud.....Feh you know what I mean!

05-06-2003, 04:39 PM
Mink ~ Do you know what time on Friday would be best? There's still a question mark for Chobits. :p

Padme ~ I think they're trying to pick a time/place for a Cosplay.com photo, but it isn't decided yet. I'll add it to this list when anyone gives me the info, though.

05-06-2003, 07:50 PM
I have an X TV/Movie/1999/manga group going on... but we don't know if it's Saturday or Friday yet <sweatdrop>

05-06-2003, 11:35 PM
Well, I can add it to the other groups section for now. ^^

Aoshi Shinomori
05-06-2003, 11:55 PM
hmm i like to be in the chobits gathering and the kenshin gathering. the kenshin gathering is at 4 so anytime before or after that is fine.. how about 6pm? or is that too late? or 2pm?

05-07-2003, 12:12 AM
Make a Chobits thread? ^_^;

05-10-2003, 03:02 PM
Hey the X group is on Friday, around two^_^

05-10-2003, 03:21 PM
Thankyou! Shall update. ^^ *salute* Do you have a location?

I need locations, everyoneeee~~

05-10-2003, 11:07 PM
Gundam gathering is going down at 6 on Friday, Michi =D As for location I have no idea what the grounds are like (this'll be my first Fanime :P), but we can meet at the Main Lobby.

05-10-2003, 11:25 PM
Added! The hotel lobby is a good central place for smaller groups.. because it's easy to find, pretty open, but you don't wanna take up TOO much space.. o.o;

I wanna put DOA in front of the hotel. Ziggyyyyyyy ;_; *tugtug*

05-10-2003, 11:32 PM
all I can say Woot? XD LOL

05-11-2003, 02:28 AM
michi: haha, go for it, the front of the hotel works for me. :)

Oh yah, Kasumi screen caps... um... after ACen, when I recover my sanity. :)

As for right now, I have a mile of piping to put on Ohgami's jacket. 8-o

05-11-2003, 03:43 AM
THAT'S RIGHT. Kasumi screencaps! Darn you! *tackles you and ties you up til you take them*

... :p

*goes to edit first post*

05-22-2003, 07:38 AM
Bumpity bumpbump, 11 days later. Anyone have new times/locations for me?

05-23-2003, 06:37 PM

Great. Can I join ya? :)

[This is still based on if I find a ride to santa clara.. that shouldn't be too hard at all]

05-23-2003, 06:41 PM
PikminLink can't make it anymore, and I haven't decided if I still wanna wear Malon.. ^^;

o.o Where do you live?

05-23-2003, 06:44 PM

Vallejo.. somewhere between richmond and fairfield [as most people dunno where the heck vallejo is lol] ;)

05-23-2003, 06:47 PM
Well, my friends and I are coming from Novato... Dunno if we can take an extra passenger, but we'll see how it goes. ^_^;

05-23-2003, 06:48 PM
novato? south of here.. isn't it? :|

You could take my car :eg: I just don't have a license to drive it lol

05-23-2003, 06:49 PM
Novato is sorta east.. southish of Vallejo. But this isn't the thread to discuss such things. XP

05-23-2003, 06:51 PM

lol ok :)

05-24-2003, 02:36 AM
Anyone up for Sakura Taisen on Saturday nite?

Hm...looks like I'll be at the X gathering of goodness. I'll come in my bridal type Karen Kasumi. ^^

05-24-2003, 05:09 AM
Michi: PikminLink's not coming anymore?! XP Whyyy? Injustice >_<

05-24-2003, 01:09 PM
I know. Injustice indeed! T_T Sigh. >/

05-24-2003, 05:16 PM
blaffy blah ;)

And nobody can make a better link then him >:|

05-24-2003, 09:24 PM
WELL w00T!!!!!!

This is worth a double-post....

My mom approves of cosplay :D

This was very VERY good news for me :D

05-25-2003, 11:48 PM
Isaldur: VERY glad for ya!

05-26-2003, 11:34 AM
Hey Michi, can you put down Angel Sanctuary @ 3 PM on Friday in the hotel lobby for now?

I'm not exactly sure how.. uh... this is gonna work out, and the time may change (to something before 2 PM), but it depends on when other AS cosplayers want to meet up since it really only seems Maikaerin and I are responding. *shrug*

05-26-2003, 01:50 PM
*salutes* I'll just put it there. You're officially the leader of the group as far as I'm concerned on this board, so other AS cosplayers can come to you about it. :p

05-26-2003, 03:57 PM
Alriiiighhh-taaay then. I am.... zee leadeeeer.

I'm not sure if that's an entirely GOOD thing. o_o;

Oi! I can do that Michael outfit I've always been wanting to do now! Bwahahaaaa!!!

05-26-2003, 04:00 PM
If I had time I'd totally be Arakune/Arachne and join you guys. o.o Maybe if I find something on my next thrift store run... XD I also have a friend that might wanna be super casual Setsuna.. o.o

*pokes Nadeshiko* Want me to put Sakura Taisen as a (??) for Saturday, and you can gather people and give me updates? ^^

05-26-2003, 08:47 PM
Dude! Sorry about this! But after figuring out our flight time and stuff, it's for sure now that the AS gathering has to be earlier than 3PM.

Unless several people voice objections to this, or if it interferes with other gatherings, the new official AS gathering time will be at 12 PM. Exactly at noon.

*pokes you and your friend* Join us! I was gonna be super casual GHETTO Setsuna so... casual Setsuna is very much so welcomed. XD

05-26-2003, 09:17 PM
Good domestik, now that makes meh 5pm zelda gathering work well >:D

05-26-2003, 10:01 PM
*pokes Isaldur* Are you going to join in on the AS fun, fun, fun in the sun?... *desparate look of desparation*!!........ me and Maikaerin are all on our lonesome.. uh... selves.

I know there aren't just TWO of us cosplaying for AS. *eyeroll* I betcha some people will pop up on Saturday or something in AS costumes and I'll be all, "DEAAATH TO YOU!! Where were we when we needed you?! FIENDS!!!"

*cough, twiddles thumbs and attempts to look harmless*

05-26-2003, 10:06 PM
I'll try. i still have at least a month but you'll have to help me out with what char to do, the story, etc.. I've never heard of angel sanctuary.. whatever that is.

While I like anime I'm quite new to the schene ;)

05-26-2003, 10:11 PM

Hm. Do the quick and painful version, and watch the anime for Angel Sanctuary. It's... uh... not the greatest and is confusing as hell (to me at least.....) but that should get you familiar enough with a majority of the main characters. ^^;

You want links or something to AS sites?

05-26-2003, 10:45 PM
ok. cool :)

05-26-2003, 11:09 PM
seraphim.nu (http://seraphim.nu) - My friends' AS network which hasn't been updated in awhile but... they do have general/in-depth information.

Digital Angel (http://www.jahannam.net/digital/) - Still being updated and an ongoing production. I really recommend this site if you want a crapload of info and media.

There are more sites out there but this is just a heads up on things. Hope you come to actually like the anime and manga.

And really sorry Michi for the off-topic insanity. ^^;

05-27-2003, 01:05 AM
No worries. ^^ Changed the time. But yeah, if I find Arakune costume pieces before the con, I can just arrive wearing it for some photos. No promises or anything though. ^^; I have all my other stuff to worry about first. *dies* Maybe make an AS @ Fanime thread? o_O;

05-27-2003, 01:07 AM
you KNOW I'll be coming to the expo in costume!

probably leaving that way too lol

05-27-2003, 04:20 AM

When at night? Before or after the masquerade? I hope to have most of my costume ready by the time Fanime rolls around. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.... *panic attack* O_o;;

05-27-2003, 07:40 AM
moo between HW and so many other things I dunno whether to go nuts or what.

nah, I don't have time for going nuts. Hopefully I'll be able to get my fabric this week and I'm not even bothering to get the heavyweight stuff now becuase I don't have the damned time.

I might use 2 layers of fabric or something *shrug*

05-27-2003, 09:24 AM
you don't need 2 layers. you just need one. you just have to makes sure that that one is an angelic layer.

05-27-2003, 09:26 AM
angelic? lol..

I have no idea what you're talking about :)

I'm actually not too worried about it, knowing the outfit I'm doing I'm going to buy the uh 'tights' thick enough so that it shouldn't be a problem to begin with.

Wandering Otaku
05-28-2003, 12:28 AM
Well im not sure if the dealers room will be where it was last year, or the year before that, but the area that the Kenshin gathering will be is the grassy area infront of the lone tree, just outside where the convention center starts.

05-28-2003, 12:36 AM
I'm sorry peoples, the X group has been changed to Saturday. The time is the same for now. And the place... is.... in front of the hotel, because that's the only thing I can think of. We'll more than likely move for the pictures, but that's where we'll meet.

05-28-2003, 02:56 AM
X and Kenshin groups have been updated. ^_^

Aya Mizu
05-29-2003, 05:48 AM
Aiya, I wish I could do the Taisen group but can't if it's before or after the Masquerade since I'm prepping for that and don't know how long it's going to be til we're done with pics and stuff afterward.

05-29-2003, 12:04 PM
Michi: I think the Zelda group can gather at the main lobby and figure out where to take pictures later XD With all the gatherings on Friday, we'll know by then where to take good pics.

05-29-2003, 12:22 PM
Yeah, I'm starting to give up with locations.. ^^;

05-29-2003, 04:30 PM
Zelda group was planned for saturday @5pm.. still open for negotiating ;)

Whether I come or not could make a difference too -_-

06-01-2003, 09:24 PM
Isaldur/Michi: I have completely had it with my sewing retardedness, machine, and tunic >_____< I don't know if I can finish it before Fanime before I eat the d--- thing T-T Sorry guys!

06-01-2003, 09:30 PM
Calm down man. I honestly think the hat's harder to make then the tunic lol.

But I still need a sewing machine and those funky pants and shirt. Someone wanna share with me a good place to get those? (probably online)

06-01-2003, 09:38 PM
Try starting a new thread about it in general costume help, Isaldur.

06-01-2003, 09:40 PM
problem is I already did.

I take it this isn't a good day or something? You seem to be jumping on what's on/off topic now. :|

06-01-2003, 09:47 PM
Aside from the fact it's very hot here and it's affecting my mood -- This is my thread I started up to help organize Fanime photoshoots. I'd just prefer not to have to sift through too much off-topicness.. Everytime the thread is updated I'm hoping for an update about a group instead of anything else. =/

06-02-2003, 09:34 PM
::pops up:: If there is no Utena group yet I think there needs to be one arranged with the release of the black rose saga and all. Friday would be best since Saturday is going to be full of FF goodness. I'm wearing my Anthy movie costume and remaking Nando's Akio costume for Friday in early evening. Any takers?

06-02-2003, 09:56 PM
Catatonic: Ahahaha I can bring my Anthy costume in replacement of my (regurgitated) Link ^_^

06-02-2003, 10:04 PM
You can try making an Utena group thread in the Fanime section to get people. ^_^

06-03-2003, 09:05 AM
Okay there's going to be an Utena gathering on Friday @ the main lobby 7pm ^^

That's a good point. Nadeshiko, any objections to holding the ST gathering earlier or at some other time other than Saturday evening, since that's a rather time-crunched period?

06-03-2003, 06:00 PM
Sakura Taisen isn't even up there yet so have fun picking a time. :p Just alert me when one is chosen.

Utena was added. ^^

*pokes all the groups with no time/location* Grrr!! XP

06-05-2003, 09:46 AM
Chobits is meeting 5-5:30 at the main lobby.

06-05-2003, 09:58 AM
Thankye for giving a better time than "night". ^_^ Updated!

Moo: Since the X gathering changed too, how about anytime on Friday? Or maybe Sunday...

Sunday works. As for time... no idea. There's a panel that I may be a lab rat at on Sunday, but the schedule for panels has yet to be posted. How about 1pm for now? I'll be in my ST outfit all of Sunday though. XD *must get mileage on it*

06-07-2003, 01:54 PM
I'll most likely be in Orhime all of Sunday as well. 1PM sounds spiffy, but I'd prefer an earlier time 'cause my flight to SoCal leaves at 5:30PM. Yet, I can work around people's schedules. ^^

Ne...when do you plan to wear Azumanga? *shall be going as Osaka*

Tis not set in stone, but tis mentioned to keep Michi happy. XD How about noon? Miss Michi, Sakura Taisen gathering for Sunday 12pm in the main lobby please. :)

Ne...when do you plan to wear Azumanga? *shall be going as Osaka*

Ayumu Kasuga-san! Your props can be an eggplant and a hawk. I don't think Fanime security will have a problem with those. ^^ Methinks Friday. If not most of the day, then all evening long. Name the time and I'll be there, since I don't think there are any other AD cosplayers in the general vicinity to meet up with.

*runs off to start ironing damned skirt if it has to be ready in 2 weeks time* XD

*salutes* Thankyou. :D I added Sakura Taisen.

06-09-2003, 12:34 AM
oh yeah, AFAIK, the zelda cosplay is still on until further notice lol. I forget, was it on friday or saturday (methinks saturday).

Just wish me luck, maybe I'll be there lol :D

06-09-2003, 12:36 AM
Is it? I took it off the list because I was rather sure you weren't going, and it looked like other people from the group were also cancelling. Are you sure I should really put it up there on the list?

06-09-2003, 12:37 AM
*shrug* ok then forget it. I'll put up a last min thing if I have any luck.

06-09-2003, 03:00 PM
you know how there are all the cosplay.com galleries at cons? like the new acen gallery? is there a specific time to meet for that or does whoever is playing photographer just snatch people up?

06-09-2003, 05:46 PM
Mordsith: No set time, really, unless it's a specific gathering.

06-10-2003, 08:54 AM
The photographer just takes pictures as he walks around the convention. ^_^; As for a Cosplay.com group shot, though, that hasn't been determined.

06-10-2003, 01:17 PM
Michi: speaking of which, someone should bug admin about it lol XD

06-10-2003, 03:34 PM
Ryu: Thanks for volunteering - go for it dude =D

06-10-2003, 03:38 PM
Babbit-chan: How come it's always me -_-;;;

06-10-2003, 03:49 PM
aww poor ryu :(

heh I can see it now.. that'd be quite a LARGE gathering wouldn't it?

06-10-2003, 03:52 PM
Isaldur: yeah, but it would be a good idea lol XD

06-10-2003, 06:03 PM
Not really. There aren't THAT many Cosplay.com members going to Fanime.. It'd just be a large photo. The time hasn't been decided yet, but I think it'll be Saturday. I recommend to have it after the masquerade where most cosplayers already are, and where the ACP shoot is often taken. I think I said this already somewhere. x.x

06-10-2003, 06:09 PM
Michi: Oh ok. That's cool by me. hopefully my camera will still have pics left lol XD

06-10-2003, 07:33 PM
lol just carry an extra SD card or two?

If I go I might pick up another 64mb or 128 card. As of now I can hold about 80 pics (but it'd reall ybe nice to hold 800 muwahahahahaha)

06-10-2003, 07:58 PM
I won't be surprised if I carry 64mb cards and my dinky 16mb (Stupid Sony doesn't go any higher than 64mb... does it?)

06-10-2003, 08:41 PM
Okay guys, let's not discuss cameras here. ^^; I still want to keep it to the groups. Everytime this thread updates I get excited that I have something to change on the list! XP

06-11-2003, 11:48 AM
This is gonna sound stupid, but what are groups for? Do you have to have a group??? (this will be my first con, btw) Me and my boyfriend are gonna be cosplaying for the first time, so everything is kinda new to me ^_^

06-11-2003, 01:15 PM
You don't have to have a group. ^^; When the cosplay community got bigger to the point of having huge message boards like this, the idea began to start organizing photoshoot groups at conventions. You don't need to be in one, even if you're cosplaying from the same series, but it can be fun to meet up with others for some neat photo oppourtunities. These certainly didn't exist when I was first cosplaying, 'cept for maybe some traditions of groups like King of Fighters Friday.. ^^;

06-12-2003, 01:23 PM
We're not totally certain yet but, Fushigi Yuugi at 10:30am on Saturday at that grassy place the Kenshin group is meeting at^_^

06-12-2003, 03:32 PM
Well, I'll put it there for now then. ^_^

06-14-2003, 03:11 PM
Ne...anyone in the Sakura Taisen group interested changing it to anytime on Friday? I just found out that I have a Kare Kano gathering on Sunday and check out time is at 12ish and I gotta be at the airport at a certain time (hopefully in regular attire ^^;) If Sunday is only the best possible time we could meet, I can make adjustments.

06-14-2003, 04:14 PM
Do you want to put the KareKano group on the list in case other KKnJ cosplayers wanna join?

Yes ^^; I didn't want to say anything if it was only myself but Friday is much preferable than Sunday for me. Would this change be possible?

06-15-2003, 03:21 AM
Michi: Oh! Forgot to post about that! KareKano - 11AM @ hotel lobby. Mmm...so far it's just Stella (Yukino) and I (Maho), but it would be cool if we had a few more other school girls and school boys. ^^

06-15-2003, 03:31 AM
Actually Friday sounds really good to me as well for the Sakura Taisen meeting. :) I'll probably be getting to the convention about 2pm Friday? Hopefully sooner.

06-15-2003, 04:00 AM
Yep, I'm still game for the Hand Maid May gatherng. I'll try to make the Final Fantasy gathering, and I'll also be at the Sakura Taisen and Dead or Alive gatherings.

06-15-2003, 05:42 AM
Added KareKano. Any other changes/additions? Some groups don't even have times yet! Pfft.

06-16-2003, 02:20 AM
Hm...talked to Moo. She's okay with it happening on Friday.

As far as time goes...I'll be wearing Orihime all day up 'til 6PM to get into my Utena costume. Does anyone have a preffered time to gather?

06-16-2003, 02:25 AM
Shaman King has been taken off the list for Friday.. Mooo.

06-16-2003, 02:18 PM
*claps alot for Michi* if there ever was an award for putting up with question, helps, addeding info, and more....Michi you just won them all! I say we should definatly do something for Michi at the con for helping all of us out like this....but thats just my idea so, no biggy.

Would it be okay for sometime in the evening or mid-afternoon? Or is it too cluttered with other groups at that time?

06-16-2003, 05:07 PM
It's not a big deal, Sohjiro. ^^;

Aya ~ I wouldn't worry about other groups.. As long as your members aren't in one of them, it really doesn't matter. ^_^;

06-16-2003, 06:14 PM
Nadeshiko & Aya Mizu: How about, say either 3 or 4pm for the Sakura Taisen gathering?

06-16-2003, 06:33 PM

I'm cool with mid-afternoon times. ^^v

06-16-2003, 09:29 PM
Either sounds great :D Let's go with 4 for the eternally late, like myself XD

06-16-2003, 09:36 PM
Am I putting it down for 4pm then? ^^

06-16-2003, 10:43 PM
Sure thing. ^^v

06-16-2003, 10:46 PM
Okay. ^^ Sakura Taisen has been changed, and I added the Cosplay.com shoot.

06-17-2003, 12:42 AM
Cool, I'll be there. :) The ST and cosplay.com. Looks like I'll be Zack at the cosplay.com shoot. :)

06-17-2003, 12:46 AM
Yes! ahahaha DOA REPRESENT.

..or something. I think the DOA group is only like me/you/Al... and MAYBE my friend as Ein if he gets his ass in gear these next couple of days.

06-17-2003, 01:24 PM
Is that first post (the group times) up to date right now?

06-17-2003, 08:37 PM
Yes it is. That's why I haven't reposted anything since it. :p I edit it constantly; the latest update can be seen in small italics near the bottom of the post.

Michi! Go ahead & put the Prince of Tennis gathering up for Saturday @ 4:30! ^^ I'll get back to you on the location..

06-18-2003, 03:05 AM
Go ahead and put the FF gathering at the fountains. Thanks again for the suggestion. =)

06-18-2003, 01:57 PM
Will there be any KOF gathering's or such? I like to try and do my wanna be King outfit at the con with a group.

06-18-2003, 01:59 PM
Yay Prince of Tennis finally has a time! XD and I'll go add that about FF too.

Sohjiro ~ There's no planned KOF group.. I'm doing Fatal Fury with a friend for a few hours, but that's it. If anything usually people wear KOF costumes on Friday night.. So if you wear yours then perhaps you'll find some people to pose with..? ^^

06-18-2003, 02:08 PM
thanks, I hope to find some people, I like to try and do that finally.

06-19-2003, 01:55 AM
Uh. The Fruits Basket Gathering is going to be on Sunday at 10am in the lobby. Thanks!

06-19-2003, 01:59 AM

NCA's 501st, Rebel Legion, Cosplay.com, & all Star Wars costumers:
I scheduled a time slot where we could do a photo shoot. I have set it for Sunday @ 12 Noon is front of the dealers room. We can shoot some nice photos there & then proceed to the water fountain area outside if all agrees. This is just for fun & a good photo op. So all Star Wars costumes are welcome! See you guys there.

P.S. This is the general post I have been adding to other boards. So can you please add us too! ^_^ Thanks!

06-19-2003, 05:28 PM
A Star Wars group? ^_^; Okay, adding..

06-19-2003, 06:58 PM
Sorry, Michi!
Can the Fruits basket get-together be moved to 1 in the lobby on Sunday. Not 10?

06-19-2003, 07:02 PM
Meep! I didn't know there was going to be a Star Wars group; I would have tried to finish my Twi-lek costume in time. Oh well...I'll come to look at your guys.=)

06-19-2003, 07:02 PM
Changed it. ^^

06-19-2003, 07:11 PM
Thanks a ton!!! ^__^

06-19-2003, 11:41 PM
Of course. ^^ I hope this schedule is of use to everyone. ^_^;
