Hey guys! If any of you went to Megacon on Sunday last year, you probably saw a big cosplay group for King of Fighters. It was a pretty fun time and this year a lot of us will be doing it again. For the upcoming Megacon we want to expand to include love for all the SNK games. So if you like Fatal Fury, Samurai Spirits, The Last Blade, Metal Slug, Crystalis, Art of Fighting, King of Fighters, and even World Heroes, then this could be a fun chance to cosplay as your favorite SNK characters and meet other fans!

The group meetup will be on Sunday afternoon. The place and time we'll pick soon, because this year it is in the North Building. I'll be hosting an SNK fan panel with Brotha Kyo that day and from what I understand, that should be at 1 p.m. So we could either do the meetup at noon, or at 2 p.m. after the panel. Or even both like we did last year!

As far as what is available, do whoever you feel like. Duplicates are okay and characters like Athena have lots of outfits to choose from. But we do need characters from games that aren't KoF and Fatal Fury. We're very lacking in that department. For KoF, we were also wanting an Ash Crimson and Elisabeth Blanctorche for our group, if anyone wants to do that.

Anyways, we hope its not too late to get new people in our group! See you all at Megacon!

Though I have Shingo done already, if I get Ryo Sakazaki redone in time; I'll bring that instead. I'm glad you guys are doing it again this year, I missed going to Megacon Sunday last year.

That's awesome. I was worried about how Art of Fighting would turn out. Luckily Gizmo told me he's bringing his Mr. Big back!

I have a master list here: http://community.livejournal.com/snk_florida/644.html
and I've put you on for Ryo. If you change your mind back to Shingo, just let us know! If you have any friends who want to join, send them our way! Thanks for joining, Makio!

I meant to add that I'd probably be doing the Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition version of Ryo Sakazaki / Mr. Karate.

No worries - Ryo is pretty much done as of earlier this morning. I just need to design the black shirt and add the KYOKUGEN insignia on the left sleeve. I bought the MMA gloves(and a copy of AOF Anthology since I had been putting it off)on eBay... and the orange gi slacks should be done this evening.

Looks good to me. I'm doing Kim as you already know, and one of my friends, or my little otaku sister is doing Chae Lim, So count her in. Her name is Christine. Oh yeah, one of my friends seems to be working on a K' cosplay, so file him under maybe.

Also, We also have to include the unknown SNK cosplaying unknowns who don't usually post nor talk about their copslays to other people. We do know a few, but I may believe that its going to grow even more than last year cause of the great turn out we had.

Cool guys, I have updated the list. I'm trying to get a hold of Dante Redgrave and Kyona to see if they are returning, cause they always do a great job. I've updated the list again. I'm hoping for nice surprises like last year. I'm sure everything will turn out great!

Yay! I heard about this. Last year was awesome fun! I will try to make arrangements again to come by so I can get pictures of you all! Also, if you know anyone about my size let me know, they are more than welcome to use my Blue Mary costume. I doubt I will be able to wear it.

Just got my karate gi in the mail yesterday afternoon, so expect progress/completion pics this weekend after it has been "weathered" and dye coloured KYOKUGEN orange!
I'm thinking of making the black UnderArmour shirt resemble Ryo's "MR KARATE" form from KOF 2006 and a forearm extention for my MMA gloves. Basically this way, it could be worn as either regular Ryo or MR KARATE version. :sunburn:

In equally amazing news... while fumbling through my closet to find the aforementioned black UA shirt; I found my old NeoGeo Pocket Colour handheld system... along with all my games:
Samurai Shodown2!, King of Fighters R2, Fatal Fury: First Contact, and the best one of the 4... Match of the Millenium: SNK VS CAPCOM!
I'll make sure to bring it with me on Megacon Sunday in case anyone wants to check it out.

I wanna see an Alba Meira cosplay. So bad. T___T



If my cosplay schedule wasn't already overbooked, I'd have my Alba done by then....however.....*sigh*


But I'll definately be swinging by this photoshoot to take everyone's pictures! =D <3

Sounds good Bur!

Also, our Blue Mary has decided to be Vanessa instead. So now we have an availability for Blue Mary. We would love some Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown cosplayers if anyone is interested!

:crylaugh: I thought the screen name looked familiar!!
Let me know if you need help with the costume and all. I'm actually trying to see if I can get a friend of mine to join in as well, because I still have that spare Shingo Yabuki costume available(since I'm going as Ryo).

candyviolence --- No worries, I've got one you can have for a prop. Granted, you'll have to keep it coiled, but it's available to you. As for the costume itself, Stephen has my old riding boots(from cosplaying D @ AHCM07)... and the uniform could probably be bought & modified inexpensively from any Army/Navy surplus store. :sunburn: Let us know if you need help!

Man, I hope you can get the costume done!! YOU WERE AMAZING AT CHESS TRYOUTS WITH THAT WHIP!!!

Man, I would really like to see this happen -> Capcom ( http://www.risingsun.net/albums/megacon2006/cosplay/source/mc2006-2336.shtml) VS. SNK (http://a353.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/60/l_32d4de84bce3973294995ac77dd3e450.jpg)

Heh. :bigtu:
