Hey I was wondering if anyone (cosplayers imparticular)w ere going to go to Japan Expo?

Michi
09-22-2002, 02:52 AM
When/where is it this year?

Miaka No Baka
09-22-2002, 09:36 AM
last year it was in LA I'm guessing it still will be. It wasn't worth driving all that way down to LA for a rather boring tradeshow type event. There was more stuff to do in little tokyo than at the actual event >_>

Sana-chan
09-27-2002, 08:39 AM

Ina
09-27-2002, 11:29 AM

09-27-2002, 04:03 PM
I'd go if I could get there easier...I'll be in LA next weekend lol, but not for any conventions obviously...oh well

Sana-chan
09-28-2002, 02:26 AM
Omi = supar cool!

Hmmm it's either a tossip between Yuna or Julia... not sure what to wear lol.

A bunch of us plan to go. :)

S*J will be performing there and JE has asked us to help them expand the anime & manga section, and we're trying hard to do so for this year! :) Expect lots of games and prizes! *.*

Manda

I'll be going! Probably as Hsien-Ko from DarkStalkers.

Iori E
10-08-2002, 12:37 AM
I'll be there. One way or another, I'll be there...
*is suffering from con withdrawal*

I just hope that rude annoying announcer won't be there this year.

Dragoon Knight
10-09-2002, 06:33 PM
And lets try and convince the convention center to let cosplayers bring their props in....*cough* They wouldn't let me remember *cough* >O ..hehe

Sana-chan
10-09-2002, 06:45 PM
They don't allow props? @_@

Iori E
10-09-2002, 07:22 PM
But they did let you bring your prop in... eventually... the next day... after a lot of strings were pulled...

They even tried to inspect my Cool Choi claws, even though they were made of photo-mount and would've bent if hit by a rolled-up newspaper...

Doremi Chan
10-12-2002, 12:19 AM
I'm going as Doremi Chan again! I like it when all the little kids say "Doremi Chan!"

Nadeshiko
10-12-2002, 05:01 AM
Most likely, I'll be going on Saturday. I will most likely go as Princess Mars, since I intend to keep that costume in my house.

Hope to see all of you there! *^^*

Sana-chan
10-13-2002, 02:04 AM
Yeah if I go it'll juss be on Saturday ^_^. Still trying to decide what to wear...

FlameSniperRei
10-18-2002, 02:47 AM
I will definetly bring up the issue about allowing props in US-JE. If they want more cosplayers they will have to be more flexible and that' what I will tell them. I think maybe a simple prop registration form just may do the trick. ^.^

C U ALL THERES!!

10-18-2002, 04:50 AM
I went there last year.. I only saw Dragoon Knight there.. and didnt have much to do.. so we left.. and we came all the way from Norcal too..oh and Saru .. you shouldnt smoke that weed.. its bad for you heh

Michi
10-18-2002, 07:47 AM
I'd go if I had a ride or something. o.o My doubt my usual group of people to drive down to cons with would care about this one. ^^;

It always looks so much fun from photos. x.x

FlameSniperRei
10-18-2002, 07:04 PM
There is a plan for a masquerade too, and the prizes from anime dealers. More info on taht when I get it! :)

And our group is going to host some games and contests, w00t!

It looks like I'll be able to get time-off for the JE weekend, so the chances of me going are looking up! :) Now to figure out how I'm getting down there.. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the info, FSRei :) So nice of them to have a cosplay at JE, so it'll add more fun to the event which isn't really an anime convention, but with adding a cosplay means that more peeps cosplaying should show up for the weekend. ;)

Aoshi Shinomori
10-29-2002, 03:19 AM
It looks like we might be able to go too.. yeah more norcal people going down too. that should rap up the con season for me.

Nadeshiko
11-06-2002, 07:09 PM
Whee! An excuse to go again in my Princess Mars dress! *^^*

I will arrivive in LA on the 25th for Thanksgiving. Oh my gosh, this is going to be a fun weekend! I get to spend time with my high school friends, family, and cosplay friends! *^^*

I will only make it on Saturday the 30th because my flight back to SFO leaves early in the afternoon. Look out for a Neo Princess Mars cosplayer. Oh, and if anyone has a cell phone, please email me with your number (scarlett@amuro.net) so I know where to meet everyone.

Michi
11-07-2002, 10:53 PM
I'm going as Alfred from Real Bout Fatal Fury/Garou Densetsu! XD He was also secret striker in The King of Fighters '99.

...NO ONE will recognize me. X_X

It's all for Yuuki Hiro's sake. ;_;

Hi,
I am wearing my FF9 Garnet costume....what are you going as?

Sana-chan
11-07-2002, 11:16 PM
Gahhhhhh I still dunno what to wearrrrr lol. It's either Chii or Yuna ><. Can't decide (brain explodes).

Iori E
11-08-2002, 12:42 AM
OMG, if I saw an Alfred cosplayer, I'd be all, "DUDE! IT'S ALFRED! THAT'S SOOOOOOO COOL!!!"

Hmmm, maybe I should convince someone to be Angel, so we can go as a group... or should I not push my luck?

ling_xiaoyu2002
11-08-2002, 12:49 AM
Hi,
Like it says above...is anyone else going as a FF character...I don't really care which FF it is I just want to be with a group if I can....anyways......if anyone can help...thanks...bye!

Dawn
11-08-2002, 09:30 AM
If anyone else is dressing up as Weiss Kreuz, I'll be wearing my Aya costume and I'll have a Ken with me ^-^

I'm gonna try and make it :D

Michi
11-08-2002, 12:23 PM
Y'know, I'd wear Kuja if I knew where my wig was. :o

Yay Iori E! So go and find me and say that! :thumbsup: Strikers unite!!..or something. Obscure SNK characters are the best. *goes and hunts down a Fio and stuff*

MAY DAY! MAY DAY! .....Maybe I should be working on my costume? *^^*

make a masquerade rules page
for JE, so here it is!!

Bell-chan
11-14-2002, 06:22 PM
I'm working on it right now, but I'll most likely cosplay Selphie's normal attire.

OH! and what's this about registering weapons? Is that only for those in the cosplay contest or everyone?? >.< I was so hyped on making Selphie's nunchakus :square: I mean, I keep bugging my dad about taking me to Home Depot for the stuff :o

Dark Vision
11-14-2002, 09:25 PM
Me working on two costumes....that will never see the light of JE....wait there's like 8 days left...omg supposed to that one costume...ahhhhhh... okay i'm better.

Michi
11-14-2002, 09:42 PM
I wanna do Alfred but have no idea where to acquire goggles like his, and don't have time to make them.... arrrghh maybe I won't cosplay. >_>

11-15-2002, 12:28 AM
It will be fun....

FlameSniperRei
11-19-2002, 03:24 PM
Hey guys, just a suggestion...

cosplay a bit more conservatively at JE. Because this is a Japanese Culture convention, there will be a lot of elderly Japanese people there. ^.^

Arigatou!

Eurobeat King
11-19-2002, 05:09 PM
I'll probably be bringing Saitou, Oogami, and Ryosuke. Saitou & Oogami will be the "Japanese cultural & period" costumes, while Ryosuke will be for the Import cars that will be there. :skidude2:

Can't wait for JE to arrive.. just one more week! ;)

Aoshi Shinomori
11-19-2002, 05:10 PM
hmm ive been asked to bring KH Tidus.. but it might be too cold.. i guess it will be Aoshi, Hideki, or some other costume.. maybe Li.. i dunno

Sana-chan
11-19-2002, 08:07 PM
Regular Yuna is conservative enough... right? No hot pants lol. I'll be wearing two diff costumes even tho I'm juss going Saturday, but that's okie. 12 more days!!

Doremi Chan
11-19-2002, 09:49 PM
It rained last year X_X But it has been really warm lately. So hopefully it will stay warm!

I'll most likely be wearing a Doremi Chan Costume. All the little girls love seeing "Doremi Chan" walking around.

11-20-2002, 09:32 PM

Cosplay is officially allowed at Us-japan
expo! No worries there. however since it is not just an anime con, I'd suggest to wear more conservative costumes (less skin showing n' stuff).

Props are allowed if you get em checked with us (a booth will be set up for security checks).

Bell-chan

Eurobeat King
11-21-2002, 03:44 PM
I talked with Admin & Aeris, and they're not sure if they can make it or not to JE, but we'll see. I will be there, so you can be sure I'll be taking lots of pictures for those 2 days, so be on the look-out for me. :) When I'm not in costume, I might be wearing my cosplay.com T-shirt, but more likely I'll be wearing my Super Eurobeat (SEB) shirt. :skidude2:

Sana-chan
11-21-2002, 08:17 PM
Is Kairi showing too much skin? lol

Dark Vision
11-21-2002, 11:08 PM
Hey sana chan... wasn't Kairi supposed to be a secret!!!

O well *presents KeyBlade, ...but no sora costume* O well.... my costume needs a random weapon anywayz.

Miaka No Baka
11-22-2002, 02:27 AM
*frantically sews her costume* I hope I can get it done in time for USJE if so it'd be cool to have a new one to wear. Its just got TONS AND TONS of sequincing to do on it. X_X Am I ever gonna kill myself with this one lol!

Miaka no Baka

Sana-chan
11-22-2002, 06:36 PM
DV- it is a secret lol no one knows! (sweatdrops) Well... yesh anywayz lol...

My Kairi costume is reaaaaaaaaally bad cuz I had to do it all by hand seeing as my sewing machine is broke and the zipper for the skirt is on the outside lol. But I'll be changing into Yuna for the masquerade.

L to the 3rd
11-22-2002, 08:28 PM
A selphie costume is fine! a lot skin is what i mean.. by like Naga or like a terra/Chocolate misu or something like that.

Bell-chan
11-22-2002, 08:33 PM
oh good ^_^ I somehow think selphie shows alot of skin

don't worry, I don't see myself wearing a Naga costume....ever..

Miaka No Baka
11-23-2002, 02:36 AM
*does the happy dance as she finds pieces to her costumes she once thought were lost* only 2 more pieces to find and everything's accounted for *LOL* Tip of the day: keep all your costume and it's accessories together or in baggies clearly labeled. Dont allow them to get thrown in with your remnant fabric like my misao cloak did. >_>

If I can find my yuna bikini top thingie I'll go as her. I just need to attach the beads to the cording that goes around the waist cause my clumbsy housemate at AX decided to step on the original ones and break them >:O and I gotta find me 6 D batteries and I'll be set XD

I might go in my Love Hina Xmas outfit...I know it's early, but it's either that or chii. Oh, but my outfit is no longer Naru because my hair is now short and black. Going to have to change it ...to *um* ..forgot her name...but the one with short black hair.

Well it looks like I'll be in the LA area after all, but my friends are taking me to LosCon

Bweehehehe. SquareEnix amuses me. I can't wait for Dragon Fantasy XVIII. :D!!

Anywaaaaay. I won't be going unless someone wants to carry me around. I'm recovering from mono and don't have the strength to walk around enough for an event like Japan Expo (walking from my room to the kitchen is hard as it is). I don't think we're even going to So Cal this weekend. Phooey.
My mom wants to go to Disneyland in a couple of weeks and says we'll need a wheelchair for me, most likely. WOOHOO. x_x;

SO. No Alfred cosplay. ;-; No Hiro Yuuki. ;-; Someone take a LOT of photos. x_x
I'll have to find another time for Alfred. I was so excited about it too. o_x;

Sana-chan
11-27-2002, 08:30 AM
Awww mono??? That sucks -_-. I hope ya feel better! I'm gonna have some difficulty walking.... or more like hobbling around during Japan Expo myself. I have this weirdo patellofemoral syndrome which is this knee injury thing @_@. Maybe I should get a wheel chair.

Iori E
11-28-2002, 04:21 AM
Ack... X_X; Mono... that's really really horrible. I do hope you get better soon, and I mean that. The timing on this just... sucks big-time.

Okay, I want a show of hands... who's going on Sunday? I hope I won't be the only one there in costume... :P

Sana-chan
11-28-2002, 10:03 AM
I don't think there's going to be any specific gatherings, but it would be cool to all meet up.

I'm only going on Saturday @_@. More stuff is happening then and it's easier to get down there. I'm sure tho that there are others that will be there on Sunday as well.

ling_xiaoyu2002
11-28-2002, 01:56 PM
btw for the people who didn't know I was going....I am going Saturday and I'll be running around in a garnet costume....I'm only telling you this incase you wanted to include me in some picture that has all the cosplay.com members that went to JE. Oh and Michi get well soon! Mono sucks! Not being able to walk really sucks! I remember not being able to walk for a while due to a dislocated ankle I got from a school related activity...it was called "stadium stairs" *shivers* I hate that name now! Bye...and I hope everyone has a happy thanksgiving!

Last post before I head out the door to JE, and already having a little doubt about it, with the rental car company giving me HELL, and weather reports via friends in So.CA say it's already raining hard down in L.A. :thumbsup: But, my good friend gave me her blessings for the trip, so that made me feel better. Now to survive the 6-7 hour drive, and I'll see everyone who's going tomorrow morning. (Should get there around 7-8am) Look for me wearing my SuperEurobeat (SEB) shirt, taking pictures. :skidude2:

THANK YOU ALL for coming and a big thanks for those entering the cosplay contest. Congrats to the winners!

AND.. Big apology for the mix up for the winners, apparently, the staff wanted to announce the winners starting from 1st place. o_0;; Which is not something convention masquerades usually do and they didnt' tell the MC, (Seiya).

Thank you all for going!

Japan Expo is not an Anime con, but a Japanese Culture convention, so I hope everyone had a chance to experience the entire culture beyond Anime/Manga Fandom. The Anime Show was a big hit and it's also the 1st time they had programing and space devoted to Anime & Manga.

I'd also like to personally apologize for announcing the winners in the opposite order of what they wanted me to announce them. Usually contests announce 1st place last x_x* (i.e. at convention masquerades) and no one told me that I had to do 1st place first! ~.~* Sorry again for that...

And also we are mailing out the prizes (certificates plus a few gifts) for 5th and 4th place by next week. :)

Thank you all for participating and also for just going to JE. I hope it was a good experience for all!

Aww...I wish I stopped by there. ;_; Clapping randomly? Sounds almost like what that Pioneer booth was doing with the crowd at AX. They weren't beaning people with things like they were at AX, were they? :P
