What are we going to do to top the A-kon photoshoot awesomeness?

Photoshoot is a given, a pajama party is fine too.

Discuss.

*ETA* if the PJ party had a planned Blue Badger theme it would be even better. Because the Blue Badger is awesome. I bet I could throw together a Maggie in civvies just for that :D (obviously BB-related things would not be REQUIRED but would be CUTE and FUN)

You mean MAGGYE? Did you not solve that case? :P

I'm digging a BB theme PJ party... I'm working on designs for a life-size BB for the photoshoot, probably not animated though (he looks like he's doing something naughty!). That and a young Phoenix outfit for one day, prolly the day of the shoot. What sucks is that PW3 comes out Sept 5 and when's A-Fest, Sept 3rd? I totally wanted to play it at the con!!!

Anyway, a photoshoot location should be decided too. I forget the layout of the hotel (is it the Hyatt?) so recomendations are welcome.

I'm also thinking a jam box w/ PW music. I wanted to do that at A-kon but couldn't put it together in time.

I ADMIT IT, I DID IT D:

I did solve that case, I'm just a retard XD;; I'll leave that up there so everyone can laugh at me. Besides, you spelled it wrong too, it's Maggey! SO THERE!

I have never been to that particular hotel, so we'll have to get location recommendations from somewhere else. Some friends of friends staff there regularly, so they may have some ideas, I'll ask.

I DID have a set of ipod speakers that I was going to set up at the A-kon photoshoot, but they're borked (need to call back customer support and just have them let me return the things, bah) and the internal rechargable battery...doesn't work. And there were no wall outlets in the area we chose for the shoot, whoops! By AFest hopefully I should have working speakers, though of course if you have a good setup as well there's no problem with that! (Hmm, connect them together for some surround sound y/n? ;3) Heh, but only if there's a good location that's not going to be bothersome if we have music, or too loud to even HEAR our music.

I'm guessing more of the latter. Even so, we can jam tunes during the PJ Party. How do those work, by the way, as I've never been to one. Do you hang in the hotel lobby in PJs or in a room? Do we play Twister or Spin the Bottle? Pillow fight? 7 minutes of Heaven?

Uhh, well we should start of with some board games first--or something simple like that--we seemed to hang in the general area for the KH/FF Pj party--but a room, may be better--though if in open space, we could gather more people--me and my Maya are already planning our PJs--we were talking to the Lana Skye on L.J. about it-- she's going to have Steel samurai purple ones, and I'm getting silk ones--I guess it'd be pretty fun if we could have an in-character game of twister...:geek:

Please ask Lana Skye if I can have contact info. I had fun hanging out with her and her friend Ema Skye (I know her name but I can't spell it!!). I'd like to keep in touch with you guys cause I had a really good time eating lunch at the mall with Lana/Ema x 2/Minaki/tall Phoenix with the cards and walking around Friday/Sat with you Fey sisters.

And I was kidding about the spin the bottle stuff... maybe. :P

EDIT!: http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=75925&member=28008 That's my photo gallery with some pics from the shoot. I dunno if I posted that yet.

Arrgh I wrote a post and accidentally hit a link and when I went back it was gone ;_;

Keep on kidding about spin the bottle, because it's boring. Unless you're using a bottle to randomize victim selection for a more interesting game like truth or dare (which is only interesting if you have creative people playing, but I'm sure that can be arranged XD)

Oh, I have no contact stuff on her what so ever...:bigcry: My friend, Maya/Cindy has her little Ema's cell number, and I have Lana's LJ name and that's it...um, I can PM you with my cell #, and that's all I got...sadly, I really wanted some contact info from ya guys as well, it was just so fun to hang with ya'll...

Spin the bottle I don't mind--I'm open to yaoi, yuri, and het...just be different for me...

Playing stuff semi-in-character makes it all the more hilarious! Apples to Apples is pretty good, I had never played it before ACen but me and my Phoenix and Franziska got our costume/pajamas on and had our own mini-party playing that in our hotel room (as said before, semi-in-character) and it was awesome. How long has that game been around anyway? I'd never heard of it before this year, and it seemed like there was a group playing it everywhere you turned.

As for closed off party vs. gathering in a public area, I don't know that it makes much difference. The latter is fun because you can get some passers-by to watch and maybe even join in, but location is a pretty important consideration so there's no trouble with blocking halls or some such *cough A-kon FF/KH party cough* Room is good because you have none of those troubles, but you have to have a space big enough for all the people (our messy hotel room wouldn't have cut it for even half the people who showed up to the A-kon photoshoot, for instance). Again, since I don't know the hotel, I'll bow to the superior judgment of someone who knows the layout better :D

I roomed with the A-kon Lana and her Ema, if you want to PM me contact infos for you (a phone number or AIM name or whatever) I can pass it on to them. I'm on AIM pretty much 24/7 (except for right about now when I'm going on vacation, heh) so any of you guys, feel free to IM me to make super epic plans or just babble about whatever.

P.S. I pre-ordered Trials & Tribulations today at Gamestop <3

Paulie1980
06-06-2007, 09:41 AM
YES! I pre-ordered Trials and Tribs as well. I just wish it would come out one week earlier. ><

Apples to Apples is pretty fun. I've only played twice and both times we had like 15+ people. I've heard it's more fun the smaller the group is but I'm not so sure, I had a pretty good time. The other stuff y'all mentioned may even be more fun. :crest:

Ali-kun, I'll PM you some contact info, AIM name, phone number and such, and you can pass it on. I'm also sucked into that kiddy world we know as MySpace, so I'll pass that on as well.

Shiri_tori, does Cindy have my cell still?

Ohh, I think it'd be more fun if we got passerby to join in--nothing like screaming 'Objection' to a random Cloud--*psst--I don't think it was just because there were a lot of people for the KH PJ party, but certain other reasons-* we should go for a small out of the way area--unfortunately I'm not that familiar with the layout myself--I haven't ever really stayed over night at A-fest...sorr...


Oh, my Maya has the Ema's number, so I can get it from her--do you mind PMing me your AiM though--I'm usually on for RP reasons anyway, it'd be fun to concoct schemes or something!




Shiri_tori, does Cindy have my cell still?

Um, yeah, she does--if you don't mind--can ya PM me your contact info also? I can get your number from her...

P.S. I need to still but a copy of JFA for myself and stop borrowing other peoples before I can focus on the third one...^^;;

I just talked to my brother who lives in California working for Shiny Entertainment (remember Earthworm Jim?). He may be finished with his current project in August which means he might come to A-fest. Dude has killer long hair and would make THE BEST Jake Marshall. Keep your fingers crossed that he can make it in!! I haven't cosplayed with my brother in 3 years and it would be freaking awesome.

Ohhh a Jake would be lovely...oh, but when do ya'll think we should host it? And um, where?

Paulie1980
06-10-2007, 12:50 PM
Well I would say Saturday again, because that would be the biggest day and would give us more cosplayers/more exposer. But I dunno where cause I haven't been in a few years and I forget the layout so please please give me your suggestions!! I'm hoping when Ali-kun comes back from vacation she can give us some input. (EDIT!: The photoshoot thread is now up so I've added us to the list but we need to set a time and place.)

I've posted some working pictures of project "Blue Badger" at the bottom of the page!

So, has anyone else heard that the name of the hero of PW4 MIGHT be Apollo Justice? What do y'all think of that? It's kinda cool to me (the Apollo part), and kinda blatant (the Justice part).

Blue Badger love XD The question is...DOES HE DANCE?! That would be the best prop in the world - an actual working dancing Blue Badger.

I'm still on vacation, actually, will be until Friday - but I'm staying at a friend's house and taking advantage of his broadband internet, which is not at all common in this country (Paraguay) unless you're at the internet cafe. MWAHAHAHA! Still haven't gotten a chance to ask the people I know about good locations, but I will do so once I get back home on Friday. For a photoshoot that will probably end up being of a good size, Saturday around midday/early afternoon seemed to work out pretty well. An after-party would do well being held later in the evening, when there's less going on that people won't want to miss (or if it ended up being on Friday, a pre-party? hehe)

I noticed the Apollo Justice thing, but I agree with the people on the gyakusai lj comm who think it's something totally different. It's just WAY too blatant, hehe. We'll see, though!

Paulie1980

The Blue Badger is currently being painted. Only an act of God will get him to dance naughty. I'm only looking at making him detachable for now. But for now, he's a lovely shade of blue. More pics to come.

Ali-kun
06-28-2007, 11:19 PM
We have a Judge now XD 100%, because I went shopping with him yesterday to get the necessary parts. There's a possible Gant, too, but that costume's a little more involved to put together so I don't want to make any promises we can't keep.

This is like Pokemon or something...GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL! All the characters, no matter how random or minor, anyway.

Also, he (the Judge) suggested as a meeting-place the area inside the pillars, in front of where they have opening ceremonies. Someone who's been to the hotel before want to yea or nay the suggestion? :D I don't know what it looks like, but he said people often use it for photoshoots or a general hang-out place, so I suppose if it's been used for the purpose before it's not going to be somewhere that we'd get in the way.

I skimmed the current photoshoot/gathering list but I wasn't sure what other ways people would refer to the area so I couldn't check to see if it had been claimed by another group during the day/time we'd like. Which I think we can say pretty firmly would be Saturday, early afternoon, depending on what other groups make their plans first.

I was thinking if we wanted to have a casual, fun pajama party type thing it might be nice to do it on Sunday, but I'm really just pulling that out of my butt because I don't know what Sunday's like - just going on the assumption that it's busier than Sunday at many other cons because it's a 4-day con. Opinions desired :D

Ok guys, I have not been posting and I'm sorry. I'll do better to update!

I'm still in as Phoenix although I have not worked AT ALL on a young Phoenix. :( I have been working on the Blue Badger, though, and aside from cutting the parts out and piecing him together, it's finished. I'll be working very hard to get it finished in August for the shoot.

Ok, I am super good with a 3 PM shoot. I just don't know where.

Awesome, good luck to you guys! If I don't get to the masquerade, I hope someone records it ^_^

(or if you think it's particularly awesome and want to do an encore performance in the hall, I have a video camera XD)

I keep asking for someone who's seen the hotel to confirm my friend's suggestion on a location since I don't actually know where it is >.> <.<

Sure thing--we're just hoping we can perform in general considering how long the lines are going to be to perform...^^;;

Though for our fellow Phoenix Wrighters--we wouldn't mind giving an encore!:toothy:

#1) I made a reply on the official photoshoot thread: Saturday, 3:00 PM in front of the lobby fountains and then we can move accordingly. If you have any other suggestions, put it on here and we can change it on the photoshoot thread.

#2) The Blue Badger is 90% finished. I'm still working on the skeleton (to keep him upright) and some other minor touches (swinging arms and legs, velcro flag and baton). I'm posting some updated pictures so check it out!

I hope we can all keep in touch and make this even more memorable than the A-Kon shoot (which was amazing).

Pajama Party Update!

Ali and I have been talking hardcore this morning about the PJ Party. Here's the skinny:

Meet up on Sunday @ 9:00 at the Lobby Fountains. Yes, the same place as the photo shoot. If we have to move to a room due to security or curfew, we'll move it to Ali's room (or my room, not sure yet) and hang out there. We'll stay up all night (or however long you can hang) and play board games, giggle, pillow fight, throw luncheon meat at each other, whatever.

No alcohol. Awwwwww. I know. But there are some of us under 21 and we don't wanna get rowdy in the room and have security called up.

Bring board games!!! I have Cranium and Munchkin (card game). We need Apples to Apples and other silly board games. Is there room for Twister? o_- (No Twister unless it's in my room! And on Saturday night. hehe)

Bring snacks and drinks!!! Ho-hos, twinkies, snacky cakes, etc. Unless you wanna pay for room service, BYOSnacks and Drinks.

Wear Pajamas!!! Come dressed cute and comfortable. We're lounging so bring your lounging wear.

I think that's it. Tell me if there's anything else and I'll add it to the list!

I'd just like to note that I didn't -actually- ask my roommates yet if it was okay to have a PW party - I just suggested it in chat as a possibility >.> They might say no X3 HOWEVER we will meet there as stated on Sunday night and then decide what to do from there, k? k~!

(P.S. Twister is most likely a 'no', because of thumping around on the floor, but anything else is go, heehee)

Paulie1980
08-31-2007, 02:32 AM
Oops. Yeah, I did make it sound like we we're gonna have it in your room. Sorry. A twist of events, though, but we have less peeps in our room than I originally thought. We might could have it up there. I'll edit my post just to make it more kosher.

As if anyone is going to read this board now... Everyone's headed for AFest!

BTW, the Play concert tickets JUST went on sale. What is it? It's a video game concert in Fort Worth so if you're local, go see it. I'll be driving in from Texarkana with a group but I would love to see some of you guys there.

I know I would have gone guano crazy if I was in the audience and people were being disrespectful like that. But don't go giving us so much credit! You guys did awesome, too!

Oh, I read about those girls--that's dumb dude! Seriously that's really made of suck, just because it's a drama skit and doesn't have yaoi or any fanservice? Don't worry about them--I really wish I recorded your skit somehow though--it really was something that just gave you chills it was so cool--and you were not a little lucky! You guys seemed to be working your butts off on it--you deserved the win!

Thanks! We're kinda wondering what we're going to do next to top it, but we're just glad we didn't trip and fall off stage like was predicted for this skit--I hope to see what you guys come up with next as well! :geek:
