Hey minna-san.

I'm going to be attending AX new york this year, and I was wondering if anyone else would be showing up there? ^^ I'm going to be cosplaying Bel Air Mana most likely, and possibly Cyberland / Au Revoir Mana. It depends on how much time I have in August... but I was wondering if anyone was doing a MM cosplay group at the con? (Or if they'd be interested in doing a goup cossie) I've never been to this con, so I'm curious to see what kind of j-rock turn out they have.

Umm, hate to rain on the parade... but there is no AXNY this year. It was a one time shot. Do you mean BAAF (Big Apple Anime Fest) instead?

*stares at website*

Wow. I totally overlooked that. THey have the website running like it's going on this year - I hadn't bothered to look at the year on everything. Damn, that was a flake moment on my part.

Don't worry, you can still go to Big Apple Anime Fest and cosplay. :D Not like without AXNY, it's a total end! Well... that's what I think. ^_^ Besides, I want to see you as Mana! O_O I am thinking of cosplaying as Kana ^^ At least trying XD

I'm looking into that now. ^^ I've never been to the big Apple fest, but the set up seems very strange to me... they rent out a theater to show anime?? (Very cool, but wow.) and how do the New Yorkers react to cosplayers?

React to cosplayers? Hm... to j-rockers, regular New Yorkers act like this:

"........................" :P Because they tink cosplayers are doing Halloween :P

For anime New Yorker fans, they go like this:

"WOW! ARE YOU BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!"

:P Oh by the way, what kind of makeup are you going to get if you plan to go as Mana?

It depends on which Costume I decide to wear. ^^;; I have about 4 Mana costumes to date, but I'm trying to make a few new ones. Either way, I always do the accurate make up for the costume. Insanely pale with slight skin tone, since I've yet to do one of his fully white costumes. I was thinking of Cyberland Mana, or possibly photoshoot illuminati. It depends on what kind of time I have post Otakon. ^^

There's gonna be a j-rock photo shoot at BAAF this year! Oooo, and a Mana contest. This'll probably take place on Friday but for updates go to the BAAF forums under "Cosplay"! Be There!

My friend Bethany's helping to organize the Jrock photo shoot, so I know for a fact there shall be one... for more information, (and to give her information for the group pictures... you don't need to sign up, she just needs a rough estimate) go to the cosplay forums at http://www.bigappleanimefest.com

Wah, I can't go to BAAF, so I have to miss the Mana bitch face contest! Bethany promised me a gross amount of pictures, so I'm satisfied ;)

I'll be there, but I don't know if I'll have a j-rock costume unless it carries over if I make one for Otakon... but I'll try~

I'll be debuting my Le Ciel Közi costume there..... We have, pretty much, the entire band together, just sans-Kami. I WILL find us a Kami. >.> So yeah.... count me in for the photoshoot, nyo. As long as its on the day of the Masqurade.

They're not jrock, but hey -- they were supposed to be performing at BAAF this year and..well, we all know what happened when SARS hit. *cries bitterly*
;_________; ::whines:: It really isn't fair.... they're so very talented...

Wah, I can't go to BAAF, so I have to miss the Mana bitch face contest! Bethany promised me a gross amount of pictures, so I'm satisfied
WHAT?! ;____; You didn't tell me you weren't going, sweetie! This makes me a sad panda.... I wanted to harass you... oh well. Xp Consider yourself harassed at Shoujocon. ..... :: pouts ::

Uhh...isnt AXNY BAAF ? *points to his little BAAF 2002 Tag It says AX New York. AXNY was a 1-year event that took place.... last year. Usually, BAAF is a full convention, but they didn't want to compete with AXNY. Instead, they reverted back to its beginning years and rented a theatre for showing anime movies and worked alongside AXNY. This year, however, it is back as a full con.

"........................" :P Because they tink cosplayers are doing Halloween :P
As for reactions, a lot of people thought I was a derranged hooker when I wore my Shuichi costume. But its really fun when YOU scare the Naked Cowboy. ^^ We didn't take any pictures with him, but his expression sure made me giggle when we said hi to him. XD XD XD
