Helloooo, I remember seeing some pretty serious DMC cosplay last year, and also at A-kon, and was wondering if anyone is going to cosplay DMC this year?

And if so, photoshoot/gathering? =DDD

I myself will be cosplaying Dante from DMC 3 with a Vergil, and it'd be great to see some other cosplayers in DMC gear.

Anyone? :]

Pomatos

I'm gonna be Xmastreefromhell's Vergil :33

Hey guys!!

I'm totally up for DMC cosplay at A-Fest!! I've got an amazing photographer (I've had 3 photoshoots with her) but she's never done cos shoots but wants to start! I told her A-fest might be the place to start and here we are!!

Unfortunatly another cosplayer set up a photoshoot for A-kon but most of us missed it for one reason or another. So hopefully we will get some people from that missed out on that photoshoot to come to this one.

The photoshoot will be saturday but I don't have a specific time or place to meet. I've gone to a-kon for several years but never A-Fest so if anyone has a meeting spot suggestion let me know!!

p.s. I would love to get everyones numbers before the con so we can find each other the day of!!

Hooray! ^___^

If we're doing this Saturday, any time but noon and whenever the cosplay contest is would be perfectly fine with me. As for a location, I have no idea. Two years of A-fest and I still don't know my way around very well XD So I'm open to suggestions :]

I request that we pretty please don't have it out side. XD; it wouldn't be too bad taking some photos outside, maybe by the trains but not for too long XD not with those leather coats. but maybe for a place to have it how abuot that hall wayish thing leading from the trains to the con? its got cool lighting :3

LordDraco3
06-19-2008, 01:24 AM
I'll be there! I'd be glad to give my number to whoever will be the main organizer of this meeting. I've also been to A-Fest a couple of times, and I think the rooftop would be a pretty sweet place if we wanted photos. There are also a few other nice places away from con traffic and outside around the hotel.

The weather should be fairly cool in November, and I know for sure they keep the AC on full blast, I freeze my ass off EVERY year I go!

Pomatos
06-29-2008, 09:16 PM
So, do we have a time for the shoot yet? If its possable i think it would be cool to have the shoot around dinner time so we can go get pizza XD. It would make for awesome photos for Dante. And pizza is just good. Theres a pretty good pizza place in the Plaza of the Americas about 1 - 3 (not really sure) train stops from the con. Or we could always just order some if we don't wanna take the train XD but i think having pizza for the DMC shoot would just be epic.

Finding a CiCi's or something would be pretty awesome. But the problem with going places away from the con would be...no shirt, no service LOL
I would preffer to not get yelled at by another cop, haha

oh yeaaaaah, i forgot about that little thing with Dantes costume XD; well, Xmastreefromhell and myself might be able to go out and get pizza before the shoot... or we could just have it divliered to us.
:3 ...i just want pizza XD con food sucks and its DMC, we need pizza. so, i'll see if we can get some pizza =D i'm guessing it will be plane cheese if we manage to get some. just cuz most everyone will eat cheese and remembering what everyone likes would kill my brain.

Pomatos -- I was totally thinking about the pizza thing!!!

Ok guys!!! Sorry to get back to this forum so late but its been crazy between cons and I'm in the process of making a Yuuko kimono (ahh!!) and the photographer has been taking some wedding pictures in central america... so again, my appologies.

What time is good for everyone? I'm thinking either in morning (10:30ish) or around 5. Since I've never been to A-Fest, (and honestly the site isn't all that helpful) when is the hall contest (if there is one) and the evening cosplay contest? It would be awesome if we could do a walk-on but I know not everyone is compfortable with that. Really, I think the contests and what not will determine what time we have the photoshoot.

Last thing, FYI- this photographer isn't just one of my friends who is doing this for free.. I am PAYING for this.. literally $150 per hour.. yes she is really good, (PM me and I'll send you a link to her stuff she has done of me before; I'm also going to squeeze in a shoot or two following/before our DMC shoot to get my money's worth!.) B/c of that I'm becoming more of a broke otaku so if anyone wants to pitch in a couple bucks towards her bill (or at least the pizza) that would be totally awesome!! ^_^ So.. if you can great! If not, I totally understand! I'm kinda stressed, but I don't want any of my new DMC friends to be stressed either!

Pomatos
07-09-2008, 05:28 PM
ok, yeah, we're so getting pizza now XD me and xmastreefromhell will most likely get the pizza delivered to our room a little before the shoot. ....it might be a little not-warm by the time of the shoot XD;;; BUT ITS STILL PIZZA!


ndfgiofghfg @__@ woa. now that i know theres gonna be a PAID photographer at the shoot i will like put my heart into my Vergil costume! XD i'm not suuuure if i will have some money to chip in for the photographer (thanks to how freakin expensive cosplay is) but i will try my best to save at least a little. xfbgiudgfdindf this is gonna be amazing @____@

and for the shoot time, for myself, and most likely xmastreefromhell too, 5 might be better. we have a shoot we need to go to at noon that day. i know its a lot of time between 10:30 and 12:00 but i have to near wrap half my body in bandages for the noon shoot @_@ and i'm not sure how long that will take. and also pizza for breckfast would be kinda odd XD so, my vote is for 5! =D

and i have no clue when the cosplay contest is gonna be. the AF people havn't said yet as far as i know. though if it were satruday that would be own cause xmastreefromhell and myself plan on doing a DMC walk on :3

SO YEAH, CAN'T WAIT TILL THE SHOOT NOW =D

xmstreefromhell
07-10-2008, 11:47 AM
Oh snap, PAID photographer? WHOA. This is gonna rock.

I'm completely willing to pay for pizza, I just need to know what everyone wants for toppings beforehand! PM with what you want on yours so I can make a list.

As for a photoshoot time, 10:30 doesn't sound good with my schedule (As Pomatos mentioned), but I'm not sure that 5 will work well either, considering last year the cosplay rehearsal was at 4:00, and you can never really tell how long those will last -____-

If no one is particularly opposed to a late lunch we go for 1:30-2:00? How would that work out for everyone?

Phoenix_Kasai
07-11-2008, 10:29 AM
Yay!! I'm so excited that everyone else is excited!!! XD This is going to be fun!!

I think 1:30 or 2 would work, that way I can get some photo time before hand. I'll talk with the photographer about it and let you guys know when I find something out.

Pomatos
07-11-2008, 02:38 PM
my vote is for 1:30~ just cuz i have a shoot at 3:00. and i'm guessing the DMC shoot will only take about an hour, so 1:30 would give give me 30 minutes to change and get outside for the next shoot. sorry if i'm being difficult >_< i just love my photo shoots too much ;_;

xmstreefromhell
07-13-2008, 05:57 PM
So, 1:30 it is ^___^

Now, as for the location, I think we were going for the roof, but I'm wondering if we should meet somewhere else and then relocate to the roof (Because I honestly don't know how to get there >____>) How does that sound?

i don't know how to get there ether XD;; and if someone was late it wouldn't be fun standing out in the hot summer sun on the roof. why not meet outside main events on the second floor? it seems like most people are meeting there but we have a pretty tiny group XD so we shouldn't get in any ones way and its a good open space where it should make us easy to spot.

Hey guys quick question... does anyone besides me have weapons for their cos??? And does anyone know of a DMC 4 Dante or Trish that would join, or would anyone want to modify their cos into DMC 4 Dante? If not I understand, I was just wondering b/c the photographer and I are getting photo ideas together. Thanks! Let me know ASAP!!

AWESOME!! I just wanted to make sure that way we can try to get some fighting/weapon pictures!! So it DOES look like we are going to meet around 1 on the second floor of the con!! Let me know if someone can't make it!! I will let the photoshoot admin in the other thread know. I will PM everyone a week before the con with my # in case you get to the spot and no one is there... b/c we may be on the roof! :bigtu: Has anyone actually been there? Like, you KNOW we can ACTUALLY get on the roof? I just want to make sure before I try to bring Kalinna Ann upstairs @_@

Oh.. and for my own information since this will be my first year at AFest, is the con and hotel in the same building or is it divided like adams mark/a-kon?

07-24-2008, 12:26 PM
Hey guys!! I'm going to PM you in case no one notices this in the next day or two.. we may have a problem:

--My photographer is wanting to help on this other photoshoot (not at the con) on saturday morning. She would like to know if we could push it back to 3:00? I told her that it would be a group decision... opinions?

How is everyone coming with their costumes? I just wanted to check so I can be prepared incase someone bales a the last minute. If someone needs to I understand b/c I'm having financial issues myself right now.. I got a ticket! :(

I don't know if i'll be able to make it at 3:00...theres the Kingdom Hearts shoot then that i'm planning to go to, but if no other time will work for this shoot i guess i could skip the KH one. DMC is more awesome then KH :33

I think we decided to meet on the second floor, and move to the roof later. But the roof is really easy to find anyways at A-Fest, I go up there every year =D
Anytime after noon to meet is great with me. I'm just not someone who would function very well before then...lol.

As for weapons, I should have my Nevan ready by then. I've got WIP shots in my gallery to prove it! I'm not sure about others though...if I get my ass in gear, I would really love to have Pandora and E&I ready to go by A-Fest, but at the moment due to money and time issues, I'm not counting on it.

yeah, we are gonna meet on the second floor first but the only thing is i thought we were meeting at 1:30 but on the photo shoot list thingy it said we're meeting at 1:00 and because of another photo shoot at 12:00-1:00 that i'm hosting, Xmastreefromhell and myself will be late because we need to change costumes so i don't know if you guys would still be on the second floor a full 30 minutes later. so, we might try to find you sometime before then shoot and ask how to get to the roof XD

I'll check out the photoshoot list and make sure they have the right time down(we'll meet on the 2nd floor at 1:30). I'll let my photographer know that it would work better if we stick to the original time frame instead of moving it back... we don't want Pomatos to miss KH!! :bigtu:

Bah, Nevan will not be ready for A-Fest. But I should have E&I if they will just hurry up and arrive in the mail (they were sent out the 21st)!

Phoenix_Kasai
08-26-2008, 09:23 AM
Hey guys!!! Less than a week now!! I'm so excited!! Everyone ready?!

Just to confirm: Saturday at 1:30 on 2nd floor (is there a landmark thing we should meet by? I've never been to AFest before... if not.. look for my giant weapon!) As soon as everyone gets there we will head up to the roof.

LordDraco3~ I'm sorry about Nevan :( It would have been cool for the pic but we don't want you stressing out. If you don't get E&I by tomorrow I would try giving the guys a call... do you have a tracking number?? BTW, you mentioned that you had been on the roof before, so do other people take pictures up there? Do we need someone to let us up there or is the door just open?

I've been touching up lady and working on her belt so it should be ready. I'm still having issues finding gloves (if anyone has some I will literally buy them off you at the con XD) and I've even tried to make some.. yeah.. I'm not that talented ^_^;

... And on a completely unrelated topic my Yuuko has turned out fantastic!! I'm so happy with it :D

D: if i had known like a full week before the con i could have made your gloves. it takes me a freakishly long time to make gloves so i don't think i could get them done before the con now ;__; (took me 4 days for Vergil's gloves, and 9 failed trys.) but i hope you find some! her gloves are really cool XD



ohoh, and just to let everyone know, my sword is kinda crap XD; i was gonna use this other katana i made but the handle would have been too big for Vergil's sword so i stole my moms boken but i couldn't paint on it so....the handle is painted fabric, so is the blade guard and if i take the sword out of the cover thing then its just dark wood....so yeah, just warning you guys XD;;;

[QUOTE=Pomatos;2600238]D: if i had known like a full week before the con i could have made your gloves.QUOTE]

::screaming, hand out, slow motion run:: Nooooo!!!!

Yeah.. gloves are a pain. Well I was going to get some at Wilsons leather but the one here is going to be closing and isn't getting their winterwear in stock. So I'm thinking about taking some golf gloves and modifying them. I also found some on ebay but lord knows I don't have time now to order them... don't worry I'll figure it out :D

Crappy sword huh? Well I'll see if she can can get some "motion" shots so maybe you cant tell in the picture. Besides, I'm sure it looks better than you think!

Speaking of pictures... does anyone have a particular picture that they want to "recreate" in the photoshoot??? I'm coming up with a slideshow/list to show Cristina (thats the photographer) and to take with us during the shoot so we don't forget some cool pose/scene/fight. Besides.. 4 minds are better than my little one :bigtu:

LordDraco3
08-26-2008, 02:03 PM
I would say look for some red or brown (you can then dye them red) leather driving gloves. They look like the same kind of gloves that I'll be wearing, just full-fingered. I would check biker stores, leather clothing stores (if you can find these, of course x.X), sports stores (sports authority has lots of different gloves that you might be able to modify), and of course online, though you would have to order some premium shipping to be able to get them in time for the con. I have some red gloves, but they are just that strechy fleece-like fabric (bought them as light winter gloves from Wal-Mart) so they wouldn't have the velcro strap like Lady's...I could get a pic if you're intrested though, lol.

Last time I went to the roof, there wasn't anyone else up there, and didn't need special permission either. But that was 2 or 3 years ago, so there's always the chance that things have changed =\

Now that I have cash, I'm going to check the airsoft stores around my area and try to find some MP5 submachine guns (sorry but those and the Stinger missile launcher from DMC2 are the best guns everrrrrr :P)

Thanks guys! I went to two different leather/biker stores yesterday and found some black gloves I'm going to make work! Yay! Just wish I had found some cheaper ones.. these were $25.. I had to get the more expensive ones b/c they were the only ones that came in an XS.. I'm going to spray them with some great outdoor spray paint that I found and make them match the boots I've sprayed.

So again! Thanks for suggesting the biker store!! :D

LordDraco~~ we will sweap the floor with the white chess pieces! haha!! XD

No problem! I sure hope that paint works though, that sounds like quite an odd method of coloring leather gloves o.o;;

And yeah...I need to find a store that isn't online exclusive as well. My gloves are nearly 3 years old and too big (size S), I need XS >_<

Let's rock!

Hey guys, I have a quick question that has nothing to even do with this thread so don't feel obliged to respond or anything (I just didn't want to do the PM to each person thing): is everyone getting reg/pre-reged already?

Let me clarify... I could give you the whole story but to sum it up we just haven't had time and/or money to get our badges. I've been to Akon for several years, and have always gotten a badge because I want to get into certain events and especially the dealers room. We are planning on staying saturday and part of sunday... so my other question is: is it worth a 3 day pass or a 1 day pass.. or any pass at all?? And if so, is the pre-reg line usually better or worse than the normal reg line?? Thanks guys!!:bigtu:

LordDraco3
08-28-2008, 01:58 PM
I'm sure pre-reg is closed now, but it is always smaller than normal reg (unlike A-Kon...LOL), but both lines are teeny-tiny compared to A-Kon. I am not buying a pass at all anymore to Kon or Fest unless there's an event that can persuade me to do so. I wasted $55 on A-Kon to check out the dealer's room like 4 times and buy NOTHING...wooo for massive waste of cash =D

Pomatos
08-28-2008, 03:51 PM
Afest is pretty cool but it really depends on what you wanna see at cons. the dealers room at Afest, if you ask me, is better then the one at A-kon but still nothing amazing. the cosplay and walk-on thingies are pretty fun to watch but only if your into that and you can always see everything on youtube later XD and this year they don't really seem to be having any really awesome looking pannles so, i'd say no pass. though if you plan on doing a walk-on or skit you will need one.

Hey guys! Sorry it has taken a while for me to get back here. The photographer put the disk in the mail on monday so I should get them today ::crosses fingers:: I'm hopeing to have them uploaded tonight. I've already seen some of them on the pictage.com site but I wanted to see ALL of them before I uploaded them. I'm just so happy Pomatos had pics taken too. Hopefully mine ended up as good as hers ^_^; if not I guess its a learning experience.

Here's to hopefully having the pics up tonight!!

Hey guys, sorry about the pictures getting here late... but better late than never right? ^_^; Between waiting for the disk to come in the mail (FYI I'm a state away from photographer), editing, and setting up a account on flicker it did take a bit of time. But again thanks for your patience! You guys were a lot of fun!!! Let me know if the link doesn't work or something.

LordDraco3: I thiiiiiink my dad (my photo guy) got a photo of us switching weapons. he might not have put it up on Flicker cuz the lighting wasn't as nice as he'd like or somthing like that but i'll look through his photos and see if i can find it. ^_^

ohoh, and if anyone wants a photo of a pose that isn't in ether of the sets i can check for it. less then half of the photos taken make it up onto Flicker so its likly that we got one but it just wasn't as good as my dad wanted it to be. XD
