Alright all weapons and weapon technicians its time to eat some souls!!!

Some members of Koneko cosplay are joining a few locals to have a Soul Eater group.
Soul Eater - Pollux
Maka - Pollux's friend

If my Baccano! Cosplay group works out in time, me and some of my friends may have Tsubaki, Death the Kid, Black Star and a Maka.

Our Stein is a little on the iffy side at the moment though...

I have a feeling that Soul Eater will get real popular real quick, so we should probably start planning possible times for a photoshoot.

I'm available any day but Sunday. (Gotta get ready for a trip to Japan!)

I see Shiri Tori will have a P3 group as well. Methinks we'll be seeing a lot of each other that weekend. u `

So I'm just gonna throw it out there, since someone has to throw something.

How about late Saturday afternoon, maybe around 3 or 4? I don't think anything's happening then. No concert. Cosplay is later on. Everyone should be more or less settled in.

Ahh, you're going to have a P3 group also? We should totally meet and have a photoshoot then! We tried to get one together at A-kon, but sadly we only were able to get a few people together--I could make a thread again?

We were even having talks of having a Megaten in general photoshoot, since we've got Devil Summoner on us as well, and maybe some Persona 2 people with us as well~

And yay! More Black Star...eeks, though. My hands ache at the idea of his shoes...

I think a Megaten gathering would be AWESOME! Then we can do individual game pictures within that. ^_^

As for Soul Eater photoshoot times I agree with Pollux.
Saturday
3pm
Perhaps second floor by the main events room? (you know where they had the Bleach photoshoot last year? ^_~ )

Made a Megaten thread~! And as far as Sat, goes--I've got Justin Row in mind if Black Star isn't finished in time, so yeah, I'm good with that~though we may have to cut out early to work on our Baccano! things...

I need to go check out this series, I really like the character designs xD I can't WAIT to see this gathering :3

Pollux
06-09-2008, 11:49 PM
Shiri Tori, would it be helpful if we bumped it up to 2:00?

And...

OMFGJUSTIN. I do love that guy. <3

I know he can read lips, but I'm in Happy Pollux Land imagining that conversation.

"Hey, Death Scythes are taking photos next."
"What?"
"I said Death Scythes!"
"WHAT?"
"DEATH SCYTHES!"

Alright, there's my excitement for the evening.

So... 2:00? Good, bad? Yes, no? Doesn't matter?

Actually... sorry to spam this up, but were you the Ken that our D.Gray grouped passed in the Westin during A-Kon? I was the Lavi that said, "Hey, it's Ken!" as we passed, and your MC was like, "SEE? People know who you are!"

shiri_tori
06-10-2008, 12:03 AM

Actually it all depends on when the cosplay show is--we're having to meet up there early for dress reherasal, so having it at three is a lot better than two, cause well knowing our luck, we may be the last ones to perform...

Yeah that was us! I was actually kinda mopey cause our Persona was being lazy and just stayed up in our room, and well most pictures were for her wings, so I was kinda dejected--that comment actually made my day really~

keriko
06-10-2008, 11:26 AM
aww you made a cute ken! ^_^

When IS the cosplay contest and the rehearsal for that matter? If Pollux is wanting it earlier how about noon on Saturday? I think our group will be entering ours in the cosplay contest, on the night they're judge craftsmanship (not the skit night) so which ever night that is, that would be the best day for us to have the photoshoot. ^_^

Awesome! I'd rather see SEES members any day. Half the time I don't realize someone's cosplaying a persona unless I have a ref photo. <3

If Pollux is wanting it earlier how about noon on Saturday?
Nah, I don't really care what time it is, actually. I think the Masquerade part of the cosplay competition is on Sunday, with skits on Saturday (unless I'm misunderstanding their whole setup, which is likely). Let's leave it at three, yes yes?

keriko
06-10-2008, 03:10 PM
ooh the craftsmanship judging better NOT be on Sunday! I wont be able to go then!! *whimper* I guess there are always hall cosplay contests. ^_^

So Saturday 3pm on the 2nd floor by Main Events is still a go? We have to make sure its not the same time as the Megaten shoot. But since basically the same people are planning this and that i don't think that'll be a problem. ^0^
Once we've solidified times and locations I'll update the first post.

Yeah, that's fine with me. The Afest website hasn't really said anything about time sadly enough.

1st post updated with photoshoot information. Once Afest lets everyone else know when the cosplay contest and rehearsals are we can go from there. ^_^

Well, well, well. You beat me to the punch, keriko. I was just coming here to make this thread.

Me and everyone I'm going to A-FEST with will have a Soul Eater outfit.

So far, we have the following characters in our group:

- Maka
- Soul Eater
- Stein
- Black*Star(me)
- Tsubaki
- Death the Kid
- Patty
- Liz
- Mifune(me, again, I think I'll wear this during the none-important parts of the con)
- Death Scythe(partial transformation)

And we MAY have:

- Chrona
- Shinigami-Sama(might be me again)
- Medusa
- Archne

Everyone that I'm friends with that love anime are head over heels in love with Soul Eater. This basically was the steps into getting them all hooked:

1) Maka & Soul Eater's and Black*Star & Tsubaki's parts of Chapter 00 begin to reel them in.
2) Death the Kid, Patty, and Liz's part of Chapter 00 hooks them.
3) The introduction of Stein makes them a permanent fan.

The cast is just easy to love, even the minor characters.

I hope by next AnimeFEST it gets to the point where we can gather the ENTIRE cast, as all outfits would take some effort.

Can't wait to see the rest of you! This is the ONLY photoshoot I have planned for AnimeFEST, so there will be no missing it for me.

I might even throw together a last minute Sid Barrett outfit(the easiest outfit in the series for me to do, really).

keriko
06-12-2008, 12:52 PM
heh i beat you by about a week koda. ^0^ Wow your group is quite extensive. ^_^

Koneko may be sporting a Blair as well! We also have a surprise in mind for Afest. ^_~ I'm actually going this weekend to buy fabric to make Tsubaki's dress and hope to have it done by the beginning of July. That way I can focus on the little extras as well as help Saejima with his Black Star; we already found the PERFECT wig for him!!

ALSO as the organizer of this photoshoot I'm proud to announce that I'm bringing a photographer or two.
Dax Hammond:
He's fairly new to cosplay photography but he's been into the hobby for quite a while is very talented. He was at A-Kon this past June; myself and some others had the chance to work with him. He's fun and really open to ideas for poses and what not. ^_^

Perhaps Koneko's official photographer will take a picture or two; I'll have to talk to her about it so no promises JUST yet. =^.^=

Ahaha, wow that's a lot of work Keriko, can't wait to see the results--I've got a tutorial if you ever need it for Black Star's hair, it came from 4chan of all things, but it's rather useful if you want to shape the perfect spikes~

And yay, another Blair--Justin needs to take apicture with them, even though, they like never met....^^;;

Yes please! I've never done spikes before so having a tutorial would be AWESOME!

Koda89
06-14-2008, 05:36 PM
I need it too, please. I ordered the "rocker" wig from Cosworx and I'll need to spike it myself when I get it.

shiri_tori
06-14-2008, 11:49 PM
Well, you could go about the regular spiking way--but this way, you'll get pretty good sized spikes, I haven't tried it myself but it looks promising:

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y14/Shino_Stalker/Alice%20Mood%20theme/Bshair.jpg

Apparently, what was explained to me about this tutorial is you make a base headband, then create cones with which you attach the hair onto the spikes, a light transperant glue or maybe some hair gel like Got2b. Those are the three main spikes, the rest you just spike regularly from the back...um, it sounds kinda complicated, but it's nifty if you get the hang of it, I'm not sure how well that'd work with a Punky though considering I've only see that spiked from the side, not up...hope this helps nonetheless~

Ahaha, I'd already started planning the sizes of the cones for Black*Star's hair when I'd found this, but well, only really have enough time to make Justin...if I can even find a suitable pattern for his priest habit...

Hi hi! I'm Koneko Cosplay's Blair, and I'm super-excited to join in on the Soul Eater shenanigans!! ♥

I'm still kind of a noob about the series, but it's really interesting and I love it so far, so I'm sure to be a rabid fangirl! XD (but not too rabid....I don't want to foam at the mouth on anyone, or go the way of Old Yeller!)

Well considering that Blair IS a cat, we really DON'T want you going rabid, cause that would be bad...very bad.

Can't wait to see your finished outfit.

I wonder how the Black*Star(me), Soul Eater Evans, Death the Kid, and Death Scythe from my group are going to react around Blair. :toothy:

keriko
06-20-2008, 06:16 PM
Tsubaki (me) will just have to quiet the boys down with a couple of throwing stars. ^_^

@Misa-
I'm really happy you decided to jump in on this! I wonder if this counts as an official Koneko Cosplay since so many of us are participating. I WOULD like to enter us as a group for the walk-on. ^_^

cloudburst
06-21-2008, 02:34 AM
I'm going as Death the Kid. Should have a Maka, Soul, Black*Star, Tsubaki, Liz, Shinigami-sama, Stein, and possibly two Medusas (we're not sure about them, or mysterious person 3, but we're working on it).

(HI AGAIN GAIZ. <3 Gonna be weird to give hugs in this if you're not symmetrical...)

shiri_tori
06-21-2008, 03:38 AM
Ahaha, wow! There's going to be so many cosplayers for this, really surprised at how fast this caught on, can't wait to see everyone and Misa! Totally you should wear Blair to 18+ Anime Dating game~ though we'll have to see how well Justin would be at it...^^;;

Koda89
06-21-2008, 04:46 AM
The funny thing is, my friend who is cosplaying Stein(and was the one that got all of us to make Soul Eater outfits in the first place....hell he got us all into the series in the first place too), is wanting to do a Soul Eater outfit before it catches on.

At this rate, it'll be too popular for him to wear his Stein outfit after AnimeFEST(he kind of refuses to cosplay characters from series that are "too popular." He even canceled making a Marian Cross outfit from D. Gray-Man after A-Kon this year, as there were too many D. Gray-Man cosplayers around).

cloudburst
06-21-2008, 04:55 AM
Aw man, I think we might have a rather large group of Soul Eater cosplayers because it seems like a few small groups all got their friends into it, but I really think the only reason we'll look big is because it's a smaller con.

That's kind of an uncool reason to not cosplay someone, but it makes sense... I understand the whole bigger-fandom thing... that's why I go with newer/smaller things.

(I actually blame TMRevolution 100% for getting me into this series.)

Side comment == Oh goodness, Blair at the dating games... I demand someone film that. XD (I laugh, only my Maka and I will be old enough to go to that.)

OH YES! (Well, for the dating games, I volunteered my services and wanna participate in the Yuri [I r so bad] so I don't know what I'll be doing... but it would be fun!) That stupid, moronic, asymmetrical little-- :sulk:

Oh, here's an amuzing thing: When I bought my guns on Tuesday, I got these which come with around 8 darts and 20 rubber bullets. And it shoots like a BREEZE. :3 (Just thought I needed to point that out.)

Kung_Fu_Candy
06-22-2008, 04:24 PM
Yay!! I feel so welcomed into the group! XD I'm totally excited to be part of the Soul Eater cosplay fandom!!

Ooh, Blair would be a good costume for the Dating Game! I was thinking of using Puni Puni Poemi, but I might save it for Oni-Con (it's kind of an inappropriate costume for AFest anyway, since it's a family con and whatnot ^^;;)

Nozomi
06-26-2008, 12:52 AM
I'll be throwing together a Maka costume for AFest. Minimal sewing involved, so it's kind of ghetto (bought the trench coat and shirt/sweatervest at Goodwill), but I really like Maka, so I'll just be glad to be cosplaying her. Plus, I don't need a wig, since I can use my own hair. XD

Photoshoot Times Update!
Day: Saturday
Time: 3pm
Location: 2nd floor by Main Events room

One problem with this, I think that's the "designated" spot that Animefest is listing all the meetups, and on the AFest forums it lists a Death Note meetup at the same time. So... we might get kicked out. Or something.

Hello SE thread,

If and when I get a ride to afest, I will be Justin Law (if I have enough time I can probably do the Guillotine blades) for the con. It'll be funny just going around and randomly thanking god for silly stuff while jamming to music. Do we have a Marie yet? (That's a good way to reel in a Stein)

Koda89
07-12-2008, 04:59 PM
Well, Black*Star looks kind of bleak now, but Mifune is all but done. I just need the wig to come in the mail as well as buying 24 cheap, plastic, toy katanas and shoving them into a blue box and wrap it up in yellow KEEP OUT tape.

Wow thank you for bringing that to my attention! I went to the afest forums and you're right.

So ... does Saturday 10am sound ok for everyone?
The other times available are:
10am
6pm
8pm
9pm
10pm
11pm
10am is the only time still available that I think WONT interfere with cosplay contest or rehearsal.
Let me know what you guys think and what times would work best for you all.

Ok with planning a trip to Japan AND Afest I just am UNABLE to finish Tsubaki and I refuse to debut her only half done and looking rushed and crappy. <_<

So I turn over photoshoot heading rights to Pollux as it was her that initially got me into Soul Eater. Sorry Pollux. *shame*

I'm still going to try and make the shoot so I can gaze at the pretty Soul Eater costumes, I just wont be participating. ^^;

Pollux
08-20-2008, 10:24 PM
AND LEAD I SHALL!

That's all understandable, lovely. I have no anguish towards you one bit. <3

I'll still have my Maka and Death the Kid with me, so I look forward to seeing everyone there! If you have any pose and photo ideas, BRING 'EM!
