So who's all going to Metrocon next year and what costume are you planning to wear? My group is planning a La Pucelle: Tactics and Tokyo Mew Mew group.

i will be there... have a general idea of what i will be wearing, but not for sure yet. its odd that it is in june this year though...

nope
09-21-2008, 08:33 PM
maybe. that's like a year away!

The problem was that there were so many cons already lined up for July, I believe. I think it was in June back in '05 and '06.

I'll be there, and the team I work with on panels already has some great ideas! We're hoping Whose Line comes back even better than ever next year, and we have some cool ideas we're bouncing around for other panels~

I'm not at all sure of my costume plans yet, except for one of the panels. I'm still trying to decide if Reno's gonna be hosting Whose Line next year.

Well, it's not really a year, I suppose. Nine months! And somehow, I always leave five thousand things to do in the nine days. >_>

I believe my Darth Maul should be in a decent shape enough to wear at Metroc. I'd be more than happy to meet you all. XD

It's a bit early...
...but I do plan on coming most likely!

I'm trying for a .dothack cosplay for Metrocon but things may change in between now and then. :)

I'll be there, but I have noooo clue what I'm wearing. Since Kitsune and I run thousands of panels, I guess they'll help dictate at least some of my costumes ^ ^" I can't wait, but I have no time to think about it right now >< Way too much to do in school.

this year metro is only a few days before my birthday! total excuse to be wasted the entire weekend!

Depending on how well my Big megacon cosplay does I might just bring that to Metro but even still i'll definitely be there

I'll definately be there! I've even started ordering and gathering stuff for another one of my 'dream cosplays' which will debut at metro ^_^.

I might attend this year, seeing that the con's last day falls on my birthday :D I haven't attended Metro in I think 2 or 3 years. As for costume plans, I'm really not sure.

Woo~ kin_sama (http://www.cosplay.com/member/96106) and I will be there as always! I believe we will have Howl and Sophie ready by then.

Metro's the bomb! Can't wait! Anyone know the theme?

This year's this is Fantasy v Sci-Fi~ The fantasy aspect makes me very happy, that it does.

If Mouse works for Megacon, I might have to circumvent my usual no-body-paint-at-Metro rule and bring Mouse for a bit, she'd actually fit in this year. :3 But that's only if I get her to work at Mega and if I don't have 15+ hours of events and panels to work around. XD

Can't wait for Metro next year XD No idea what I'm wearing, not even gonna THINK about it until next year.

I can't wait for the next Metro! We had such a great time this year for our first one.
Already we've started work on our costumes. We're ready to go all out. ^.^

I'm going and putting a huge effort in terms of time and money into both of my costumes. There are two costumes I will bring to Metrocon that will be relatively new, I'll be making them over the coming months. I hope to see many of you again either hanging out or at tryouts next year.

SoedBlackChaos
09-23-2008, 11:32 AM
Well, I've already got Matsumoto Rangiku lined up. A bunch of friends agreed to do a Bleach group last year, but it fell through, so we're going to try again. There's another one too, if we can get the panel lines up the way we want it. ^_^

Well I heard that the theme for next year's Metrocon is Mecha vs. Magic so I'll have my mech cosplay ready by then. For my in between cosplay costumes to relax in it'll depend on what I'll have ready so I'll see. I have so many months to get many costumes prepared by then as well.

LadyElle
09-27-2008, 05:05 PM
I'm hoping to be there! The only costume I have planned so far is Hinamori Momo for SoedBlackChaos' Bleach group. Plus the ones for the two panels that I'm involved. I actually prefer it being in June. I already have some ideas for an original costume for the masquerade. Hopefully I'll be able to bring to life my design.

NiGHTmaren
09-27-2008, 08:54 PM
I'll be in attendance, but no idea what I'll be making or wearing yet. o.o I've planned for a few cons next year already, but not MetroCon, so I guess when it draws closer I'll have an idea of what I'll be cosplaying.

SunakoChan
09-28-2008, 11:42 AM

yay!! drinks! i'll be 25. omg i feel old! a quarter of a century old! ewww....okay, think happy thoughts about being ridiculously drunk all weekend... :crylaugh:

NiGHTmaren
09-30-2008, 01:55 PM
Don't worry...I'm already 25. D:

But yeah, Metro is looking to be a wind-down con for me next year, I know I probably won't have anything major planned, unless Eternal Sonata gets delayed past MegaCon, but I sure hope not. I'm thinking of bringing Simon and my boyfriend's Kamina, but still not sure what else.

JFBount
09-30-2008, 02:11 PM
Yeah Metrocon is going to be huge for me and what i have up my sleeve ... Jim Carrey will be proud

Omg, costume will cost major monies.... ugh!

I'll definately be there! I've even started ordering and gathering stuff for another one of my 'dream cosplays' which will debut at metro ^_^.

Both me and my group just loved your Ultima costume! It looks just like it does on the game.

Oh my, I'm going as Kadaj again, with a maybe appearance of PJ!Kadaj, Turk!Kadaj, and Female!Kadaj.

Aleera
10-04-2008, 11:39 AM
I'm no good at keeping my plans secret for long. At minimum I will have Yoko's cosmo and Elfaria finished. I'm getting smarter and at least my planned costumes for Metrocon are all ready in late stages of progress.

kimiko_yuki
10-04-2008, 05:42 PM
I was pretty much stuck against the wall last year so I didn't get to enjoy the other things Metro had to offer.

This time, I'm making sure I'll be able to move around and mingle ^_^ And ofcourse I'll still have glorious wings (not as big as Ultima's though) I'll let you guys know what I'm making closer to the con, (after I figure out if it is indeed possible) so ummm.. yeah... It's me and my goddess complex again ^_^

sailortintin
10-05-2008, 01:35 PM
Fans of Last Chance Myu rejoice! They are coming to Metrocon next year with a tribute show to the third moon, Miyuke Kanbe and panels as well.

Illexxxi
10-05-2008, 06:37 PM
Oh, Man

Can't wait for Metro.
Sucks that it's only me and my Mello going for next year. Depending on what happens, we might just ask people to room with us to cut down the cost of the hotel T-T
Or board with my friends, if they're going XD

Ahahaha I think I know who its going to be. Can't wait! I'm a big Carrey fan.


We've already got huge plans for this con; My group and I that is. There's is definitely going to be some Orgy 13 people (including myself) I'm the Demyx. I'll be along with Ms. Saturday as Axel (of course) and xxxMePxxx as roxas (again of course) we're probably going to have a Zigbar as well. And I'm going to convince my Vexen to go to Metro too since she hasnt going to many cons and needs to come to more +_+ but yeah thats the only costume I have planned 100% (mainly since it will be the only one I KNOW i'll have 100% done since we're making them for Megacon too) =3 I cant wait for Metro this year!!

10-14-2008, 03:44 PM
JFBount:: Took me a second, but I think I know what you're going to be. It'll be wicked if I'm right. x3

I'm going to be able to make it to Metro next year, so huzzah to that. I'll probably finish my Luke Valentine and drag my mini Hellsing group along.
We might try an Ouran Host Club group, too, but we'll have to price men's blazers or decide on which variation we want to do.

I'm hoping Metro will be pretty fun. I've heard good things, so I'm definitely looking forward to it!

YellowKiss
10-14-2008, 11:30 PM
we always go. been since year one, so its no argument. xD

i just dont know what as yet.

10-22-2008, 07:20 PM
yup i'll be going as well!, though has anyone tried to reserve a room yet? i tried but i keep getting that the group rate is unavailble

Lunar Dragon
10-23-2008, 04:43 PM
Costumes for metro... I'm thinking of whipping out a manga princess serenity (I gots a bridal pattern *sings* :)) but other than that. MAYBE Shakugan no Shana (te-he I'm cosplaying my name :p) But other than that.... OMG I'm avaliable?! Quick! Somebody grab me and throw me in a group!!!

Xeiana
10-23-2008, 07:45 PM
Weirdly enough, the room rates were kinda different when I check the hotel... We're going to be reserving the room when we get the money really soon, though since only three of us are going, we're trying to find a friend who'd be interested in rooming with us with their part payed by them.

I'm also trying to get my final fantasy panel thrown together, though finding participants are getting on my nerves haha XD

Lunar Dragon

I cosplay as Aeris, Celes, Quina Quen and currently working on Cecil (FF4 DS re-release) and I'm a big FF nut. Depending on when and what it is you're doing could I possibly help you?

Hopefully I'll be able to go to Metro in 09. This years I couldn't go to.. there was family vacations and a whole bunch of other stuff going on and yeah. XD

I still need to think about cosplay. *ponders*
I want to bring AC Yuffie out of retirement, because those shoes are eating up closet space! XD And I'll probably bring some other FF/KH cosplays with me, too.

Aleera
10-27-2008, 09:50 AM
@NekoMeishi: I know how much space those shoes take, I own a pair too. I put them in a storage bin, but still they are space hogging boots. I also cosplay Tifa, she too has way too many shoes for all the variations. Maybe I'll see you @ Mizucon.

I also bought some steampunk boots to match the theme.

Lunar Dragon
10-27-2008, 02:06 PM

Sweet! Count me in as Aeris. I never get tired of wearing that costume. ^_^ I'm probably going to be making Metrocon a Final Fantasy themed weekend because that might be when I premier my FF4 Cecil costume.

Kitsune
10-27-2008, 03:54 PM
So it's looking like no Digimon for me this year. :< I have extra responsibilities and panels, so I just can't squeeze it in this year. I might actually be wearing Reno quite a bit this coming year, because it's an easy costume to move around in (and we have something awesome planned to add a little fun to Whose Line <3 So I'm not pulling Reno from running the show just yet). I'm also pretty sure there won't be any Saiyuki this year. ;_;

But we have some awesomesauce stuff to add to the lineup. >D

I can't wait for it to be a little closer to the con so we can reveal some stuff. I'm so excited~

My cosplay storage bin is totally full; so I cleaned out my closet to fit all of the crazy shoes I own in it. Goodwill is amazing for finding insane footwear and buying them in mass! XD I got my Yuffie boots at Journeys though.

^^ I'll definitely be at Mizucon; I'm going to be working at a table in the artist alley.

Nah, the room rate won't be available for awhile, usually not until after the new year.

I feel like I need to have something especially ridiculous looking after last Metro. Although, I want to actually do something at this con. The only I did last year was sew, drink and the costume contest.

with the special rate.

Keh keh keh..I tried to keep mine under $1,100, but that didn't work. Lawl. Maybe if I would have told the judges that..heh, definitely wasn't a $5 costume.

I REALLY HOPE jonny yong bosch comes back!!

Ah, I've never been to Metrocon before. My parents wouldn't want to drive that far for a convention and they obviously wouldn't let me drive that far with my crazy friends. But we're all in college now and so we have more freedoms. And I'm officially legal now (well, for certain things)! Hooray!

I just need to convince the 'rentals that I should go to Metrocon even though I'm going to Cali for Expo a few weeks later. ><

LainaBug
11-02-2008, 05:52 PM
Hey guys! Admin has decided to go ahead and give Metrocon it's own board!

I know last year we were all wondering why it didn't have it's own board yet since it's the largest anime convention in Florida so I went ahead and emailed to ask, and viola!

Thank you Kyle!!

Kitsune
11-02-2008, 06:30 PM

Metrocon has it's own board now? Squee! Thank you very much, Admin! And thanks, LainaBug, for asking for it! :3

11-02-2008, 10:49 PM
Excellent about the forum. I'm all booked and It looks like in addition to standard costumes I will try to find time to make a Steampunk costume (just found boots last week). I'm going to be working nonstop on my Metrocon lineup in December after finals. Feel free to PM if anyone is going to the first weekend of tryouts also, as the time gets closer.

So far, i'm thinking of cosplaying Uryu from Bleach (school uniform), Shuichi from Gravitation (end of the series [anime] outfit), Nagisa-sensei from Loveless, and Anemone from Eureka Seven. :burger:

Yay.

Also, to any who'd be interested, I did finally put up my panel information, listed in my siggy. Now searching for people to fill it up hopefully.

I was going to skip metro and go to AX
but i decided to go to metrocon instead. Yays! xD

i have no clue what i'll be wearing though.
i think i'm doing a Meer cosplay with my friend who's doing lacus....
but thats all i know. xD
I really want to do a group cosplay
but idk what to do. xD
I might also cosplay Anya from R2. (gotta love pink haired girls! 8D)

The boyfriend and I decided on our main costumes for MetroCon - we'll be cosplaying as Kuja and Zidane from Final Fantasy Dissidia - originally from Final Fantasty IX. Yes, he is being Kuja. I figure it's something new and interesting, we have a few big costumes next year so for Metro we can't have anything too crazy.

For some reason, I love Metrocon. I love the panels, the awesome costumes, I love the close location, the Chess Match and the Masquerade, wow I just can't wait for Metrocon to come!
Right now my friends and I are still in the planning stage for our cosplays. I might wear my Mulan cosplay, who knows. At first I was worried that I'd be in Colorado at that time, but my cousin is getting married the week before! yay!

I saw the Dissidia costumes (because I had no idea what Dissidia was, but then I realized I saw it before) and when I saw Kuja I nearly chocked! Those costumes look a lot of fun though!

Wasn't able to go last year, but we'll definitely be going this year. We'r doing Alucard and Integra, as usual, but this year, on Friday, I'll be finally debuting my Dante costume- something I've been dying to do for the past year, and I finally found the right pattern to make it!

Pantsu_chan
11-20-2008, 07:45 PM
LOL it's about time we got our own forum!

And of course I'll be attending again.....no clue with what costumes yet. Probably doing Idol again as well.

11-21-2008, 10:14 AM
Okay, I feel the need to announce the awesome group I'm trying to pull together. I really, really, REALLY hope it pans out, it's making me so excited. <3

So. Fantasy Masquerade, steampunk theme. Group: formal steampunk-wear ReBoot group.

I am so insanely excited!

I just want to meander around like a beacon. >D I'm doing formal steampunk Mouse, I have the pattern already. I have a bunch of ideas for my Mouse headpiece now, so I ought to have my lit-up hair done for it. I'm also trying to make a light-up mask to go with the hair (though it won't be able to pulstate like the hair; I'm afraid they'd strobe too much right by my eyes and make me faint/sick).

So far, I've conned a friend into doing witchdress!Hex from the ReBoot artbook. I might also have a tacticalsuit!Dot, too~ And maybe a formal Megabyte, which I still can't picture. XD If anyone else is interested, please post! I'd love to see a good-sized ReBoot group get together.

</ReBoot ramble> Hopefully, a few people still remember the show >_>

Art is a BANG
11-22-2008, 03:58 PM
Im going, hopefully if all goes well. And I will probally be doing a Final Fantay costume, and my old deidara cosplay cause I havent worn it in a while....

So far, I've conned a friend into doing witchdress!Hex from the ReBoot artbook. I might also have a tacticalsuit!Dot, too~ And maybe a formal Megabyte, which I still can't picture. XD If anyone else is interested, please post! I'd love to see a good-sized ReBoot group get together.

</ReBoot ramble> Hopefully, a few people still remember the show >_>

Reboooooot!!! <333

Look forward to seeing what a steamy take on Reboot might look like!

If I have it by then I'll probably be doing Twilight Princess Zelda, I'm really hoping I have Haruko (FLCL) done by then (i got the boots!) and Sango is another goal i have. We'll have to see though. It's still quite some time away >.> my top priority is Sango since I have someone who's doing Miroku and I'll have a ride on Kirara by my friend who makes fur suits ^^ I really hope it all pans out!

That would be pure epic-ness. Would love to see that! I am considering cosplaying as another Gintama character though probably won't be worn at Metrocon!

I've read a couple of people interested in the Anime Idol event, though I was surprised that not a lot have mentioned much of the other events or panels (though the website has only posted a couple event information and it is early to tell.

Well for Gintama cosplays, It'd be amazing if I could cosplay as Gintoki, but personally speaking, I just think I'd look rather look funny, but a girl can dream, right? I still have not pinpointed a certain character and thought, "I must make that character", I truly love them all. Okita was really my favorite character from Gintama though, and what's great about the series is that there are so many characters to pick from! I know I just want to cosplay from the series, but I have no idea who 0.o.

JFBOUNT- I'd like to see a male contest on Anime Idol for once! (last 2 years of Anime Idol have had no guys), good luck!

Well for Metrocon I don't plan on wearing Okita (though I am not exactly positive), I do want to strive to try the costume contest, though I am terrified because I have never competed before and I am really intimidated! I am still thinking about it though!

Like I said in my earlier post, I really don't plan on cosplaying as another Gintama character for Metrocon. I have to downsize in the number of cosplays I can make and decrease one less convention, and plus with the costumes I do plan to make, I really won't have time to fit in another costume along with the funding it requires!

I am considering trying out for Idol again (I have not been able to for the past 2 years due to Masquerade and you can't enter anything the year you are Mascot...which makes sense, lol!), but it depends on if it is moved to Saturday. Can't do it if it's on Friday, since I have Masquerade preparations! XD

And did you now Metrocon has forums! (My newest discovery!).

(TRIVIA!)
Actually, the AnimeMetro.com forums is why METROCON came about. The members started talking about meeting up in huge groups, so METROCON was started to help them out! ^_^

There is Role-playing and other chit chat threads, too, but if you go through the METROCON webpage, it will direct you to the METROCON section. At the top, click "All Forums" to see all of it, or go through AnimeMetro.com/forums to get there. ^_^

I always look forward to Metrocon; it's an easier drive to Tampa than Orlando and I like the TCC. I'm so glad we won't have to deal with Flugtag this year, too =)

I'll be going as Poison Ivy and possibly some other stuff, but I need to talk to the boyfriend and cosplay group and see what we want to wear.

I'm actually kind of looking forward to it too. Ladt year it got very out of hand, especially with the white boards. So many rude comments were being written and then erased quickly, but it didn't matter: people saw them anyway.

I understand if it's part of the costume. But if it's not, guys, it's really not needed. >.<

Illexxxi
01-11-2009, 02:27 AM
But the rule is that, unless the cosplay in the manga/Anime has the sign, as the artist had originally designed the character to carry, then they'll be asked to put it away or throw it out.
And judging by how many people are happy to have no more signs, I'm guessing that many yaoi/yuri fangirls won't get away with this so easily.

Personally, I don't care either way, but it'll make for a less stressful environment.

And it's on Father's day? D=
Aw, Bloody hell.
Looks like I'll haveta buy my dad something awesome in order to get away with not being there for father's day dinner

Just to clear up any confusion: The theme of the convention isn't steampunk. The Fantasy Masquerade is, though. METRO is just going to have steampunk undertones (translation: mainly just the website).

The theme, after many years of waiting for it, is finally SCI-FI VS. FANTASY!!! *does a little jig*

This is actually a rule that started back when METROCON did. Some people can took it too far last year, so they are clarifying that it is against the rules of the con. ^__^.v,

And the Steampunk THEME only applies to the Fantasy Masquerade, and gives METROCON an excuse to make the site all Steampunky. XD The theme is Sci-Fi vs. Fantasy.

missind33
01-11-2009, 05:17 PM
I didn't know about the sign rule, well last year I must admit there were way too many signs, Metrocon was especially hectic last year though. I did remember signs from two years ago though? Everywhere you turned last year there was a "Will yaoi/yuri for money", "glomp me", "Naruto Sucks", and other misc. signs. Anime conventions are a family event, and I just find it unappropriate to have 18+ signs (especially during the daytime). I am glad that Metrocon is going more strick on the signs. Though I enjoy Metrocon's organization, and especially how a lot of their events are family oriented.

Lolita Minako
01-11-2009, 06:51 PM
Yeah, it was getting really difficult for security to keep up, especially when a lot of those sign holders had BACKUP signs handy for when the others got confiscated! Con security did confiscate every sign they came across, though. I always see more signs at other cons.

It is actually against the city of Tampa and the Tampa Convention Center to have the "Will ____ for money/pocky/whatever" signs. It is considered solicitation, and, thus, against the law.

METROCON stresses its PG-13 rating and family-oriented events more than any con I have been to. No over-18 panels or anything, either. ^__^ Even at the first day of event try-outs yesterday, we were cutting improv sketches that pushed the line of PG-13.

missind33
01-11-2009, 07:46 PM
Wow! I did not know! It's more serious than I thought! I just thought it was because it was inappropriate, that was maybe one of the reasons, but illegal!

Well at Metrocon, I notice a lot more families especially with younger kids. I never thought twice about the family setting until I attened AFO several weeks later where most of the events at night were 18+ events. I appreticated Metrocon more then. Thanks for clarifying that, I did not know!

You're not the only one who didn't make it. I spent 6 months preparing for the tryouts and I think the only reason I didn't get a part was because I made some mistakes on my entry form considering how well my tryout went.

Hey guys, don't feel bad. I was on cast for two years, and haven't been able to get back on since.

Woo, I'm planning to make it to MetroCon, and if I do I will definitely be cosplaying Twilight Princess Link, and Winry Rockbell from FMA. I've been thinking about doing Kyo from Fruits Basket, but I'm not sure about that one yet. Depends on if there are anoy more Fruits Basket cosplayer. XD

Looks like I'm going to focus my efforts on the costume contest, since I didn't make any casts this year. I put in a lot of effort into getting into shape for auditions, and now I can put the same drive into making costumes again. I may still try for Idol and Superhero StuntShow, It's too soon to know yet.

Don't be discouraged by it. There were fewer characters this year than last year and a lot of good auditions. You just got to keep trying. :)

okay, I think I have my final decision of what I'm wearing to Metro this year. Most likely a Steampunk version of Boss from Hamtaro on Friday, Milly from Trigun on Saturday, and possibly Rabi~en~Rose on Sunday. If I can magically fix my serger, then I'll swap out Milly for Tabitha from Rune Factory.

Frostmourne
01-29-2009, 02:17 AM
I'm undecided on what to wear for Metrocon thus far. Although I am planning on getting a serger with part of my tax return this year. :D
As much as I'm into Clamp now it'll probably end up being a cosplay from Tsubasa and at least one fun/simple cosplay.

I do want to do a costume this year that goes along with the theme though. I have plenty of time to think about it of course. ^^

Divine Dragon
01-29-2009, 10:16 AM
I think most of my costumes will be the same this year. I'm almost done with Action Bastard, which I will first wear to Megacon. I really want to start on my dream costume this year (Dragoon Dart from The Legend of Dragoon). It is such a huge and complex costume it'll probably take me until Metrocon 2010 before I can finally wear it anywhere. Hopefully, my friend will have his Dragoon Albert costume done by then.

I guess my costumes for MetroCon this year will be the same as my plans for Megacon costumes. I'll probably only be the Green Ranger and Action Bastard.

I have a friend cosplaying Shin at Megacon on Saturday only. I even got him a foam butt for the back of his shorts. He's a high school senior right now, but I think he will be able to go to Metrocon as Shin too.

Right now, I'm attaching the white trim to the green vest. I'll try to finish it today. If all goes smoothly, I'll have the rest of the mask painted by next weekend and post some pictures.

I really hope I can afford to get a room for Metro, if not then I'll be going Saturday only. I was hoping to go the whole weekend since Sunday lands on my B-day.

As far as a costume plan for Metro, I have some things up my sleeves planned.

Kitsune
01-31-2009, 08:57 AM
I should really see if we've reserved our room. XD I don't look forward to the bill, since we have to stay from Thursday night (set up) to Sunday night (break down). Ah well, alleviates the hassle of Friday check-in and Sunday morning omg-gotta-get-outta-here chaos.

It looks like I'll be wearing staff!Reno for most of the con... that is, my Reno hair and makeup, the slacks, a staff shirt, and from time to time a jacket with the back cut out. XD If anyone's running panels, my friend and/or I will be seeing you! We hope to provide everything panel hosts need for their panels.

Otherwise, I'll have Sophia Forrester (Masquerade), proper Reno (Whose Line), Kabuto (Metro Ninja Panel), and a secret costume for a TBA panel. Holy crap, I'm not going to be killing myself doing costume changes? This isn't Metro. XD

kimiko_yuki, that's going to look amazing. =O And I can't wait to see everyone's costumes!

It occurred to me last night that I might want to do a Shin Chan skit at Metrocon. I've got a few ideas on what to do, but I'll need at least three other people with at least one guy and one girl. Maybe I should ask some of my cosplay friends at Megacon.

what characters would you need for the skit.

Well, there's Action Bastard (me) and Shin (my friend). I'll need a girl to be Lollipop, a guy to be the Deflowerer, and another person to be an original character of mine.

I've already got one or two girls in mind to be Lollipop, and I also need to ask my other friends first to see if they're interested in any of the parts. The original character will be a simple costume with a name that's a double entendre, like most of Action Bastard's enemies.

Sun: Yoshi or 2nd Hokage

I'd love to wear Girlycard, since it might be more recognizable now, but it needs some fix ups. I've almost convinced my boyfriend to go as Luke Valentine if we can just find a long enough wig. On 5' 4" me, a mid-back length wig was a lot shorter and cheaper than on 6' 4" him. D:

Our show is officially scheduled for 8pm-9pm Saturday night in the Special Events Ballroom. We'll have stupid, cheesy prizes that we throw out, too (like beads and plushies), so please stop on by.

We're also hosting a Sera Myu education panel on 4pm Friday, Panel Room 18, and a Cosplay Make-Up panel (with a free makeover) at 3pm on Sunday. Plus, 3 of us are judges for Anime Idol. So we're going to have a busy weekend.

yea it the rules....but if you dont cause allot of problem and dont over stuff the room they will have no idea... if you have 8 people there and they only see 4 at a time they wont think anything plus they cant keep you from having "visitors" So they wont know who is staying in the room.... the most i will allow is 10 people that includes me and my wife and friend...

VIP its just pays for the ball dance and other little things that normal people would of had to pay extra for... you might as well save the money.

I might be staying in a hotel outside of the convention center this time. Just priced the rooms for Metro. x____x; I'd see about rooming with someone else, but my boyfriend and best friend are coming with me, so I'd be tagging along three people in all. xD

Has anyone got a special outfit planned for the Masquerade aside from the Steampunk Tohru I keep reading about?

ok instead of red light green light, how about Thumb wars full of awesomeness :D

You can always try a scavengers hunt, or something like that. Dunno, might work o.0

I was thinking of a scavenger hunt for convention landmarks like a sign/plant/door? or maybe even cosplayers of a certain character (only if they allow you to photograph them)

Only problem that I can think of though is if you don't have a digital camera, then how do you prove that you found the items/cosplayer on your list.

Speaking of scavenger hunts, I know the Metro Ninjas panel is going to have a fun character-based scavenger hunt, Saturday evening. </obligatory panel plug> XD But seriously, it's going to be questing at its finest, and all in-character. Even if you don't like Naruto (I'm a cast member and don't watch the show *coughs*), check it out if you have the free time. It was a ton of fun last year, and we're hoping to make it even better this year!

There will probably be a more formal, in-character version of this post later.

I'm so excited. I've begun work with my friends on different panels. As well as approving panels. Soooo many awesome panels this year, it makes my head spin. I'm going to have to make some tough choices on what to watch. Oh, Metrocon, why must there be so much happening at once? ;_;

I live about that far away from the convention center too. It takes me about 20-30 minutes depending on the traffic. I've driven from home to the con on all three days for the last two years. If you live that close, then you shouldn't need a hotel.

Yeah? I just wasn't sure if it'd be a pain in the ass to find parking everyday and driving home at 3 in the morning or what not lol.

And what exactly are panels? rofl. I keep reading things about panel this, and panel that... and I have no clue what a panel is.

Gah, and the sickness (Respitory Virus, all 4 of us in house) still prevents me from starting our costumes :(

Nobody ever replied me, i dont think... has everyone already started theres??

Panels are a variety of things. XD Some are like small-scale events, some are informational sessions, some are workshops, some are games (and this year a lot are character interaction and that makes me a very happy girl :3). Check out the Events Schedule on metroconventions.com, and you can see the current panels that are scheduled; each has a description which can do them more justice than I can.

I've still got to start on my Sophia costume as well as my secret costume, but otherwise, I'm rewearing old stuff. And by that, I mean I'm wearing Reno for most of the con. XD

But there's still time 'til the con (famous last words <_<).

Sorry you are sick *huggles*

I have started mine *sort of* I have most of the pieces, I just need to put them together, but with the weather and my work schedual I'm finding little time.

I got the wig for one of them yesterday, a beautiful brown one, I was thrilled, then I tried it on and remembered why I started dying my hair o.0 :bigcry: The shade, which is almost exactly the same as my natural color looks awful with my skin tone *whimper* I look like there is something wrong with my liver *bleh* Hooray for make-up...

im not even sure ill be able to even pull off making our costumes, cause i've never ever sewn before. And I"m still trying to figure out my mum's old sewing machine, its 30+ years old, works, just no manual & my mum, god bless her, doesn't remember how to use it. lol.

SO! that is my current predicament.

We've gotta look at our $$, cause we haven't even started saving yet, haven't preordered tixs, or started costumes. we're just an unorganized mess right now. I blame the sick-ness.

You can do it! You have time and you can always purchase an inexpensive sewing machine. Heck, my little sis recently bought a kids sewing machine for like $10 XD

Since I didn't get the part of Travis Touchdown in the MetroCon chess match, I've been wondering what I should do with my red jacket. I considered making a Travis costume anyway, but then I saw the trailer for No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle, and his jacket is black in that, so using my jacket for Travis would be a waste.

My friend is a big fan of Akira, so I decided that I will start working on a costume of Kaneda. My friend could be Tetsuo, since he has the same kind of head. If we finish in time, maybe we'll wear them to MetroCon on Friday or Sunday. Saturday is going to be for our skit costumes.

If only my dad had bought himself a red motorcycle instead of a black one.
