I will either be doing Leichenstien or Sealand....Havent decided :] I don't have a switzerland or a Latvia (Since I can't cosplay two people at once) So I'm not bound to either ;D Hmmmm... Decisions, decisions!

I really really really want to be N. Italy, but my funds aren't very efficient. T-T
Depending on how much money I get on my birthday (And if my mother will let me), I will be trying my hardest to scrap together a N. Italy cosplay. :3
But my friend thinks she's going to be Hungary. (:

Yay people have arrived!

Well I've planned a photoshoot for Saturday since most people are going that day. The place and time is still TBA. Any suggestions?

Btw I did decide on Turkey for all days if I'm broke. There better be a Greece there! *puts up fists*

If I have extra money I'll go as Canada too (since I'm doing a shoot after NYAF anyway).

Well it IS Saturday and I totally missed the one in AnimeNEXT *curses train* so I'm up for it. We'll see what happens later.

Where's a good spot to have it anyway?

07-05-2009, 02:09 AM
Yo. ;D

I will be going as N. Italy with a S. Italy, Japan, Germany, England, and Hong Kong. 8D I am actually cooking pasta to share with everyone at the picnic and around the con. ;3 Baked Ziti and Macaroni and Cheese, FTW.

Four other people and I have actually been talking about this whole meetup thing on the New York Anime Festival's forums... Moar people seem to be here. xD And we got things planned. Here's our ideas so far:

Meetup Time: 11:00 AM, Saturday
Meetup Place: Right in front of the huge screen. You'll see it once you go down the escalators from Registration. After about an hour, we will move towards the panels (the area with the gray floor) and outside.

Events:
1. 'Where the Hell is Hetalia?' - There's this project with Hetalia cosplayers all around
2. Photoshoot - Must I explain?
3. Twister - If anyone has the game, please bring. :3
4. International Food Swap/Picnic - Bring food from your country! :D Make it a minimum of about 12-15 people, please. :P
5. MAYBE a game of Tag - A pokemon group got bashed and flamed at last year. ^^"
6. A Conga Line - Let's get a longass line through the con.
7. RickRoll'ing - No explanation here. BD

And to be honest, that's about it... Brainstorms, anyone?

Hey there! I'm from the NYAF forums. :D


I'll be going as England, and bringing along an America, a China, a Taiwan, and a couple Canadas. We figured we'd move the main planning stuff here, because apparently news spreads like wildfire! So...yeah! I'm super excited for NYAF this year! c:

TALLESTnicole
07-05-2009, 01:23 PM
I'll be there as well! *Is theNICKELgirl from the AnimeNEXT forum*

I'm planning on being Spain and Greece, and I'll be going for 2 days (Saturday is a must, and I'm debating between Friday and Sunday) I will probably be Greece at the picnic because there will be Turkey, but there will also be a Romano, so I might just change halfway through. (it will only take like 5 minutes to change)


AND IF ANYONE WANTS TO PLAY IT, I'LL BRING APPLES TO APPLES!!! (best game ever!!!)
We should also play werewolf! If you don't know how to play, it's similar to Mafia and is the easiest party game ever. I'll bring a deck of cards too.

I unfortunately won't be able to bring cooked food, but if I can find packaged Spanish/Greek food or candy, I'll bring it.

TALLESTnicole
07-05-2009, 01:26 PM

First post has been edited! I feel like I'm missing something.

xcigarettegames: I'm gonna have to say no to the RickRolling because it's pretty old and annoying to many people now. ^^;; I say that because someone tried it at AnimeNEXT and no one cared anymore.

Hiiii. I'm kawaiisyaoran from the AN forums and Wing from the NYAF one...although, I haven't posted there in a year. XDD;;

I'll be HK again (since I don't have time to create a new cosplay in addition to my CG one. OTL.) and I should have my Taiwan with me this time around. I'm hoping to get a group of Asian-tans together, but I'll see how that goes. Hopefully I can get my friend to cosplay Thailand and I think I have a Korea. <3 That just leaves China, Japan, and Vietnam (and maybe Mongolia and Tibet?) XD;;

Any chance we can do what we did at AN and have two days of Hetalia fun? XD I'm not entirely sure I'll be in Hetalia cosplay on Saturday. ;A;

Yes~ Do China! XD HK will bring bao for you. :Db China can has his little siblings.

And I believe you know the Korea I'm talking about. She's chappuholic on LJ? :D I'm not 100% sure she's doing Korea, but we spoke about it before, so I don't know.

Mmkay, if stuff is already planned, that's awesome. I'll probably bring apple pie, since I'll be America on Saturday, so... yay!

Oh, and... we should totally do a Hetalia Carmelldansen!! XD

Ok. I'll do China for NYAF. Just for you guys. <3

mabsey
07-05-2009, 10:11 PM
wow, so many people...! : D

I know the con isn't for a couple of months, but for the photoshoot...
We should probably organize it by group shots, country/single shots, fanservice/crack pairings, and the like. I was thinking of starting a document, and we could list whatever we wanted to do. Is that okay with you guys? :'D

Wingg
07-05-2009, 10:31 PM
@Canada: I'm hereee~ I lurk. :E Google Turkish food? XD

@loveanime18: Yaaay. Gaw Gaw~~ <3 I haven't spoken to chappuholic in awhile. Tell her to really do Korea! XD I think I found a Japan. Unfortunately my Thailand just remembered he had to work over the weekend and has class on Friday. D|

@Mabsey: We did that for AN, so it definitely works. XD And I think a bunch of us were just over at AN forums. I couldn't find the link to the NYAF one. o____o

You know, my only concern with NYAF is that it's always so crowded and there are no places for photoshoots. The only area was have outside the convention center is the sidewalk lol. Unless you guys are planning it for an area of the con center that's not really part of NYAF?

Hello~ I recently dug up my Cosplay.com account and this is my first post on the forum. Eep. I'm SakuraPlum from the NYAF forum and I plan on cosplaying Taiwan on Saturday. (:

As for areas for photoshoots, places in the convention center that are open to the public but isn't used for NYAF are about the only places where there won't be twenty people walking behind you. Last year with our Reborn photoshoot, we moved from the ground floor to outside the cafeteria one floor below it and it was pretty empty.

Okay! If you guys have any requests for photoshoot ideas, then let me know! ;D

As for places to shoot, I know that there is a big open space on the...left side of the convention? Past where they had the diabeetes thing last year. There's lots of room for all of us countries there, probably.

I talked to her, and she said she's trying. She needs to buy fabric and get the ok to go to NYAF. XDDDD

And I agree about photoshoot. There really isn't any place inside the con center that's nice for photoshoots. But I guess if anywhere we could go to the upper entrance area more towards the back so we don't disrupt traffic flow and get our space for pics.

I agree on the ground floor for pictures, I know Vampire Knight had a photoshoot there (my friend was in it) and they had quite a bit of room to take good photos.

And if it's nice outside, we should take some street pictures too!


I also agree with making a list so we know what we want pictures of. Here's a start:

Groups:

Colonial Family (US, UK, France, Canada)
Asian Nations
Axis Powers
Allied Powers
British Empire
Western European Countries
Eastern European Countries (not including Asian Nations, but like Ukraine, etc)
Islands (Seychelles, Cuba, Sealand)
Nordic Countries
African Countries (they now have drawings!!! http://community.livejournal.com/hetalia/2753593.html?#cutid1 they are in Gakuen Hetalia)
Gakuen Hetalia (from the Dating Sim game about Hetalia)
Sweden, Finland, and Sealand
Bad Friend Trio (Prussia, Spain, and France)
Austria, Hungary, and Prussia
Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania)
Russia and the Baltic States
7 Years War countries (France, Prussia, Spain, England, Austria, and Hungary)
Mediterranean Nations


Pairings:

US and UK
US and Canada
UK and France
France and Canada
AMERICA AND OBAMA XDDDD
America and a cheeseburger
Sweden and Finland
Switzerland and Lichtenstein
Southern Italy and Spain
Austria and Hungary
Hungary and Prussia (with a frying pan, XD)
Greece and Turkey (beating the crap out of eachother)
Greece and Japan
China and Russia
China and Japan
China and Korea
Germany and Italy
Russia and America
Germany and Prussia


My brain is fried, anyone else have pairings?

and then of course, any crack pairings or whatever else we can think of, like doing the YMCA, silly poses, mock fighting mimicking wars or high tensions, etc.

BAH. I noticed there's very little North Italy pairings on the list. And as a North Italy cosplayer, I disapprove. HOWEVER, that whole Spain thing with both Italys is (as Nicole said) EP1C W1N!11!!1one!1


Oh, and me (North Italy), my Japan, Germany, and mabsey (England) will be going to karaoke this year and singing the whole/N. Italy's version of Marukaite Chikyuu. So if anyone wants to join, then that would be great! 8D

There's always people passing by. Usually the more emptier area is the entrance upstairs by the registration line. It's up to you guys.

Assuming you've never been to the Jacob Javitz (sp?) Convention Center, I'll try to explain it.

There are 3 levels. A ground floor, the one you walk in on off the street and where you pick up your badge, a basement kinda level (its not really a basement, it's just below the ground floor) where most of the convention is, and then a second floor up top, which normally has some other type of convention set up.

2nd Level <-- not our convention
Ground Floor <-- where you walk of the street, has the badge booths, meet up on this level
Basement Level <-- where most of NYAF is

So, from what I'm getting, meet up on the ground floor. If you see the big booths for registration and preregistration (for your badge), you're in the right place.

Don't meet at the cafe, (which is on the basement level anyway, right?) its much too crowded


I hope that makes sense!

whoa melly

Thank you so much for the explanation! xD It makes perfect sense, no worries! It'll help loads when I'm there~

I'm so excited, oh man. I wish September would already be here!

Uhmm, hi! I'm just popping in to tell everyone that I'll be at NYAF this year cosplaying as England. I don't think I have anyone else with me to cosplay Hetalia, so I was hoping to make some new friends!
I've been trying to get NY Hetalia cosplayers together for a gathering on the lj community, but so far it hasn't been going to well. You guys seem to have everything planned out though, maybe you'd have better luck trying?
I hope to find you guys at the con! I can't wait to join in on the fun! I also hope I find an America to make my seme >:]

Haha, thank you so much! Right now I only have a casual England cosplay (white shirt, vest, slacks), but hopefully soon I'll be buying the cosplay somewhere. Do you know of any sites that are selling it for a reasonable price? Everything I find is asking me to give all my money and my first born in order to acquire a costume ><

PandaPuff
07-07-2009, 04:18 PM
The best thing I could think of is go to your local military surplus store and take a look. They usual have these outfits (pieces at least) that range $15-$30. Sometimes more expensive though. Google for locations!

You can also try your luck at thrift stores for boots, pants and ties. Wigs should be from the internetz.

EdxWinry
07-07-2009, 04:27 PM
I was thinking of stopping by a military surplus store and seeing what I can do there. I can steal a tie from my dad, and probably a shirt too (he's really small like me).
Don't worry about the wig, I already got one from cosworx ^___^ I buy all my wigs from them and cut and style them myself.

Who are you goin' as? *tilts head* I see you cosplay America *evil twinkle eyes*

PandaPuff
07-07-2009, 04:42 PM
Lmao I cosplayed America for AnimeNEXT and due to my luck I couldn't find an England to do things to. :(

I'm going as Turkey (and maybe Canada) for NYAF though. You'll spot me since I doubt anyone else will be going as this guy. xDD

Ehhh we'll see. There's gonna be a lot of America's there I think. I'm not too picky about being touched for fanservice but at least if I went as America you'd have my permission lol. Maybe I'll end up doing switcharoo's. Are you going all 3 days?

I'm actually 5'2" (and thats a stretch) so compared to you, I'm really only TALLER Nicole , lol. And you know how I got that tall? BY EATING TOMATOES! (I actually don't like tomatoes all that much /fail)

And I'll be romantic with France (and Prussia, Bad Friend Trio FTW!) for you XD. btw, one of the Frances is named Nicole too XDDDDD


We should just get all the Nicoles together and we'll have like at least half the countries, lol

@PandaPuff: I haven't gone all three days since the con opened. I've only managed a day a year and I've regretted it every single time >< I live on Long Island, so I've had to take the train into the city every day to travel back and forth. But this year I'll manage something since I know there's gonna be a good Hetalia turn out. I'll think of something!
Haha, you'd have permission to do whatever with me, as long as I get permission from my girlfriend first!!

@Nicole: Oh, so you aren't tall. You're just a lying tomato bastard!! >> ilu *clingon*
We could take a picture with all the Nicoles, that'd be cool! My middle name is actually the same as France's name, only it's spelled with an "e" instead of an "i". I despise my name oh so much...

eee, I really can't wait for the con! Oh, can we play Apples To Apples and make it completely cracky?! It'd be so much fun!!!

TALLESTnicole

@ English Nicole (so it doesn't sound like I'm talking to myself XDDD): So its Frances? Better than Alison, my dad actually spelt it wrong (he wrote Allison by mistake) on my birth papers, and had to go back and change all of them XDD

And YESSS! I WILL BRING APPLES TO APPLES!!! *it so much better than twister*

07-07-2009, 06:18 PM
Ooh, lots of ideas for the photoshoot, yay! I wrote them all down! <3
We could also do some North American Brotherhood (America and Canada)...and for crack pairings, England's Unicorn x America's Cheeseburger, anyone?

The meeting place looks great, too. Usually the registration area and that general spot clears out pretty quickly after the con gets going, so we shouldn't have much trouble meeting up, hopefully.

Hey, looks like I'll have an Iggy twin, yay! -wavewave-

07-07-2009, 06:32 PM
Two Englands? I need to make some fake firecrackers or something. >D

I have also failed to learn how to play apples to apples. I only know that it involves cards and it's fun. XD;;

EdxWinry, are you ohayogozaimasu on LJ?

EdxWinry
07-07-2009, 06:44 PM
@ PandaPuff: No trouble at all! She allowed me to kiss my Kurama at Otakon 08, so it shouldn't be a problem.

@ Nicole: Yup! It's Frances ^^' Yet I'm not French...I'M 100% ITALIAN! *pose* I also have a personality like Feliciano. People said I should cosplay him, but I like being characters who aren't anything like myself. Plus I love Iggy way too much.

@ mabsey: I think we'll have a lot of Englands. I'm so upset that I left my unicorn with my girlfriend in Oklahoma >< I haveta get a new one before then! Ne, wanna take pictures together? Or attack Americas together?! It'd be so fun!

@ Wingg: Yes, I'm ohayogozaimasu on LJ. The one who was trying to get everyone together on America's birthday. Who are you on there? *head tilt*

Apples to Apples? Huh... I only have the kid version of it, but... basically one person puts down a green card with a word, and everyone else puts down a red card with other words, and there's a judge who decides which word is most relevant to the green word and the winner gets the green word card, and whoever has the most greenw word cards at the end wins!

...So that was my probably not-very-helpful explanation of Apples to Apples.

It doesn't have very much to do with apples, does it?

But now that you mention it, the ground floor by regestration (no, I can't really spell) is probably a better place for a meetup... XD

Wingg
07-07-2009, 06:49 PM
Yea, you mentioned that here, so I was like, "Hey! There was that person on LJ that was trying to get people together. XD ...are they the same...?"

@EdxWinry; I'm stumped as to where to find stuffed unicorns...I figure most toy stores have them, but there are like...none around me, haha. And yes, I'd love to! I'm bringing an America with me, I'm sure she won't mind getting double the love! <3

EdxWinry
07-07-2009, 07:01 PM
@ arthoniel: The version I play with my anime club at school is a bit different. We judge the winner by whichever card is the crackiest. So people put in cards that aren't relevant AT ALL and the whole thing just turns into one big laugh. I think we should play that way ^^

@ Wingg: Oh! I remember you! Hi *wavewave* I didn't get a chance to tell you, but I love your lj name. I've been a Syaoran fan since Cardcaptor Sakura <3333 Oh, and I'll take your advice to go visit stores around me before I decide how to make my cosplay! Thanks for that ^^

@ mabsey: Aww!! That's so sweet of you to share your America! Thank you so much!! The unicorn I had was a beanie baby. I don't know if I'll bring one...perhaps I will...If I bring a unicorn I'll share it with you in thanks for sharing your Alfred =w=

I, Spain, have a newfound respect for England, because thats freaking HILARIOUS. Plz, someone bring a stuffed unicorn with them! Getting a cheeseburger in NY will be easy XDDD


@ mabsey: you can always steal a unicorn from your local kindergardener, just make sure you run really fast, and dodge any objects the parents throw at you XD


And whenever I play apples to apples, its always up to the judge's discretion, but I make an effort to choose the crackiest, most random answer ever , lol

arthoniel
07-07-2009, 07:17 PM
@EdxWinry: Dude. Your version sounds like SO much more fun. We should definately play your way. Wish I had an anime club at my school to play that with...

Has anyone wanted to do a gathering before the con? Like sometime this month or next? I was thinking of having a picnic or something...but I'm on LI and I didn't know if I wanted to travel into the city *ponders*

There is a gym-uniform Hetalia gathering in August, but we're all going to Princeton, NJ since the location is really nice. PandaPuff, another girl and I are meeting up in Manhattan to take the train from Penn Station. If you want to pick a character that is available, you can get lost with join us to take the train there, unless there's another route that's easier to get to NJ from LI? :D

EdxWinry
07-07-2009, 07:45 PM
Gym-uniform? I think I heard about this gathering. Is England available? He's the only one I could cosplay, since I've already planned to be him and I need to save as much money as I can. I've never taken the train to anywhere else but the city, so I don't know of an easier route to NJ. My mom lives in Hoboken (spelling?) and I just take the LIRR into Penn and she picks me up since she lives so close.

Hoboken? Castle Point Anime Convention is there, you should go! *you ALL should go XD*
Its not until April though, lol

But anyway, England is already taken *sorry!*. For the Gym Hetalia, it shouldn't cost too much, just a white v neck t-shirt (I'm stealing this from my dad), blue shorts/pants (like sweatpants/track pants, whatever you would wear in a normal gym class, just blue), and some blue trim to go around your neck and sleeves. I already had most of this stuff at my house. Or you can do what I do and tell your parents you're just shopping for new clothes, and they'll pay for it XD

But thats assuming you still live with your parents, idk how old you are XDDD

Also, Goodwill and thrift stores are srsly your best friend. You'll be able to find shorts/pants for cheap, under $7 for sure.


Hope that helps!


EDIT: Lol, forgot about the wig part XDD. You could probably get an Estonia (who is still available I think) out of an England wig, just don't cut the spikes out!, Hair spray/ gel them down. Gahh, I gotta go recheck the list.

EDIT 2: here's the list:
Sweden
Switzerland
Estonia
Turkey
Norway
Cuba
Egypt
Belgium

Ahh, I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to go then. England is the only cosplay I can do from Hetalia...My hair is too crazy and I need wigs to cosplay as anyone. I'm super picky about the wigs I get too, so they usually wind up costing me quite a bit.

Hoboken has an anime con?! Maybe I'll go...though I-Con is in April too...hmmm...

And yeah, the Stevens Institute of technology has had a con there for the last 2 years, their third one is April 11 (a Sunday). I'll be hosting the cosplay dating game there, wh00t! Admission is real cheap, like $12 or $14 at the door, and even less if you preregister.

That was the design, (on the video and on the design loveanime18/digitalhopper made) but hell, I'm up for skipping it. We're gonna have the iron on with the school crest anyway. We should probably bring it up at the AN forum, first.

@Nicole: You totally should! College cons like CPAC are ALWAYS made better by increasing the amount of awesome people! CPAC doesn't have a lot to buy (small dealers room/ artists alley) but the chill vibe of a small con is definitely worth it. Especially because the rules are more lax and you can create your own fun, like starting an impromptu game of Werewolf or Apples to Apples and inviting all the people within a 30 ft radius to join you.

Everyone should go! XD

I know what you mean. I-Con is held at a college every year and the people are always so awesome. We have dance parties and I always manage to make new friends! I'll have to talk to my mom about the Hoboken con, since I'll have to crash at her place in order to go.

I went to I-Con for the first time this year. I'm only going back to I-Con if my buddy, SilverYouko300 goes. I had fun, but if I'm gonna be in Long Island I demand my cosplay boyfriend to be present. XDDDDDDD

Gym Hetalia is on August 22nd (Saturday) and we're gonna meet up at the Dinky Station. A lot of ppl are coming from NYC, generally out of NJ, and are taking the train to the Princeton Junction, switching trains, and going to the Dinky Station from there (its a 5 minute ride).

America (DigitalHopper) and I will be waiting at the Princeton Junction. We're trying to meet up at 10:30.

EDIT: Ha, you beat me to it XD

EDIT #2: Yeah, cosplay chess was fail >.< They didn't realize that if your king was in checkmate, you can just leave them there and have the other characters fight each other. But they just kept moving the kings back and both to get out of checkmate -_-||| Its not a real chess game, don't play by ALL the rules.

TALLESTnicole
07-07-2009, 10:51 PM
You can always show up later! Lol, I'm not picky. We're gonna be there pretty much the whole day, and the university campus, as well as the town, is surprisingly small. I just went there on Thursday and we're pretty much going to stick to Palmer's Square and University Road.

You can call/text us when you arrive at the Dinky, and we'll either tell you where we are or a couple of us will walk over there to you. The university is a *very* short 5 min walk from Dinky.

Feel free to come if you're still up to it!

Yeah Hetalia is taking over life right now. The most completed cosplay and effort is going into these so they'll be around for another couple of years. xDD

I even have future plans for Greece, Egypt, Sweden, Denmark, Romano, Spain, and Austrailia. The characters who don't appear much need more love! Plus it's 100% expected that the axis and allies will be cosplayed at a con. Not that there's anything wrong with that. >_>

EdxWinry
07-08-2009, 11:24 AM
I'm with you guys on this one, Hetalia is a fandom that's here to stay. I really think I've fallen in deep with this one, and I'm not willing to try and get myself out! That's why I'm willing to spend so much money on a cosplay (at least just for Iggy right now), because I know it'll get good use. I used my Edward Elric cosplay for a number of years and wore it to so many cons that people actually recognize me when I switch characters. They run up to me and say "YOU'RE ED, AREN'T YOU?!" and it kinda freaks me out ^^'

If I ever get the chance in the future I'd love to try cosplaying as Feliciano, possibly Romano, and maybe America.

I've never done a skit before...I've always thought about doing one. Oh! I've lent my voice to them before, since I love voice acting. But I've never physically been in one.

I have anxiety issues, so I'd probably go all Latvia on ya~!!

@ Mabsey: Where did you find a unicorn? I've gotta go searching...either that or I haveta get Charlie shipped up to me (yes, I named the unicorn Charlie >>)

PandaPuff
07-08-2009, 12:24 PM
Trust me, I've never done one either but I've seen enough to do one without boring the crowd. Since it's the first skit I'm making it won't have actual voices (I think) but involves dance and movement. I'm aware that the crowd is usually ADD and will get bored if something goes on for too long. @_@

mabsey
07-08-2009, 12:49 PM
@ EdxWinry; The Barnes and Noble where I live sells small stuffed unicorn toys...and if I can't find that I'm buying a webkinz unicorn. C:


@ Nicole; I was actually planning on maybe going to AN next year! And skits aren't really that hard to do, depending on what you want...to do. If I can get there, I'll let you know! Because I think this could be fun. |D

@ PandaPuff: Eh heh...I can't dance. I guess that counts me out ^^' I'd love to watch though!! I'm always amazed by those kinds of skits. I saw a really awesome one on youtube the other day *fetches the link* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rGHmeNqxs8&feature=channel_page

@ Mabsey: Oh! I remember seeing them there too! I'll have to go back and get a pretty one and name him Charlie II

Does anyone live on Long Island like me? I'm just curious.

PandaPuff
07-08-2009, 01:24 PM
Ed xWinry: Ehh?? The dance won't be THAT bad. It's not like a full blown dance with the full song lol. (Somewhat at the end though like that link you posted) When I figure out the cherography I'll tape it and see what you think. I'd love my group to be as big as that video but I don't know the limit of people according to the rules. Gotta check that out first.

Mabsey: Sweet! I hope you can make it. I want to practice with all of us at random times before the con. Everyone's schedule is different so I hope it works out. Where do you live btw?

And EdxWinry I live in Queens but I'm pretty close to LI. I used to go to school there.:)

EdxWinry
07-08-2009, 01:28 PM
@ PandaPuff: M-Maybe I can do it then...I'm not sure...I can't remember dance moves very well ^^' I'll try if you need me though! Where did you used to go to school? I'm in Stony Brook! You guys should come visit me sometime!! *desperate for human contact*

So far for this year I have planned Lithuania and Gakuen!Bela. I'm seriously considering schoolgirl!Poland at some point XD (maybe CPAC?) Who I'd really love to be be is Liechtenstein, but I'm so tall orz It'd be weird. So I think I'll just add regular Bela to my list instead.

I would still love to be that skit! <3 I love acting ^^

PandaPuff
07-08-2009, 01:49 PM
s0ra: Where's is CPAC? *noob* And yay acting!

EdxWinry: I know how you feel. I don't know anybody in school or outside this forum that like anime/cosplay/cons (which the exception of some people here i just met last week!). Anyway I used to go to NCC. I went to Stony Brook for I-CON last year and sadley I didn't like it. And do consider the skit!

EdxWinry
07-08-2009, 02:05 PM
You were at I-con?! Let's see, last year I believe I was Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho...I chased down some Narutards and held kunai to their throats *evil smirk* I always have fun there. Aww, too bad you didn't like it...
I do know people who like anime here. I started the anime club at my college. It's just that no one is as yaoi obsessed as I am, and only two of my friends are into Hetalia (but they live far away and I only see them on campus).
I still say you all should come visit me sometime >:[ Iggy demands it!

PandaPuff
07-08-2009, 02:28 PM
At I-CON I remember seeing an actual short Hiei. I think that was you. o_o (my back thought now is "omg she could pull off Latvia" xD)

I didn't really like I-CON because it's so small, nothing much there and the masquerade area needs work like crazy. I went to several panels and there was ALWAYS problems with the audio/speakers! Actually didn't it move to a new location this year? I have no idea where it is now lol.

Edit: Oh! I'd go visit if possible. I assume you live on campus?

EdxWinry
07-08-2009, 02:41 PM
Haha! Yup, that was me! I'm an actual height Hiei ^^' My costume has improved drastically since then. The wig is styled to perfection now thanks to my Kurama, and I was forced to put make up on for Otakon last year so I looked more sinister. I suppose I would make a good Latvia...I should cosplay him sometime. I roleplay him once in a blue moon.

The con usually is small, but it's awesome because I know a ton of people that go. I meet more people every year and we're basically all friends. Everyone knows each other. That's what I love about small cons. I don't usually go to the panels unless there are guests (I was supposed to host the yaoi panel this year, but I came down with strep throat and had to hand it over to someone else TwT) and I'm not fond of the masquerade, but my friends have skits there. You probably saw Jeff of PANTS, he's a good friend of mine. They win every year...

I live 5 minutes away from the Stony Brook Campus where I-CON used to be held. It's been moved to the Brentwood Campus of Suffolk County Community College where I attend school now (except I'm at a different campus...it's confusing). But yeah, I'm literally RIGHT next to where the con used to take place. So whenever you wanna come visit me you'll know where to find me ^^' You should really come visit sometime! I wanted to have a picnic at a park right by my house. Maybe we can arrange somethin?

Sora: Yesh to the panel! I'll apply for a Hetalia panel for CPAC. So all you guys going to CPAC let me know if you wanna help with the panel. I can only have so many panelists though. I think around 4 or 5 should be good.

Hetalia is monopolizing my Cosplay list now. I'm doing so much Hetalia for the next couple years @_____@

EdxWinry: I love PANTS. I felt all warm and fuzzy inside when they complimented the skit I did with SilverYouko300 at I-Con this year~ <3

I've been going to I-Con as Hiei for 2 years now (not counting this one, I was sick and missed the first two days...so I missed your skit, I'm sorry!). Who did you cosplay as?

At I-Con I was Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran (Saturday) and Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket (Sunday).

I think I might have seen you off in the distance as Hiei. I don't think I got your pic though since I'm too lazy to run to go catch someone usually. XDDDDDD

Sora: Ok. I shall put you down in my mental list of people to help me with Hetalia panel for CPAC~ <3

EdxWinry
07-08-2009, 06:10 PM
Yeah, I remember talking to you on the lj community, but I meant that I think I met you somewhere else or something. I'm not sure where...

I do remember seeing a Tohru, but I went as Matt from Death Note this year. Last year and the year before that I was Hiei ^^'

Geez. The thread really moved fast today. XD

You guys really make me want to go to CPAC. I'll see how exams are around that time. X3

I'd love to cosplay another Hetalia character (preferably Sealand), buuuut I'm not sure how I'd look in a blond-ish colored wig. orz Maybe Vietnam one day. My actual hair is long enough for her. XD

Nice to know I'm surrounded by talkative people XD


@ Loveanime18: I'll help with a hetalia panel too! I hosted a dating game last year at CPAC (I'm doing it again this year), as well as a marker panel at MangaNEXT 2008, so I've had some experience as well :D

I love CPAC

@ mabsey: I'm glad, because those parents can be vicious! *shutters* And if you did Poland that would be, like, totally awesome, like, to the max! XDDD

@ s0ra: Lol If I was cosplaying according to my height, I think I'd be Sealand. XDD I say screw height, as long as you have the characters personality down, you can ignore that they are taller than you. *and Lichtenstein is so cuuuuute, not as cute as Romano, but close*

And I know what you mean, I have some cosplaying friends at school (only 4, and one who always says she will cosplay someday), but the friends I've met through Hetalia are so awesome!!!! You guys all rock <3

@Wingg: Come to CPAC!!! Screw exams! *okay, don't blow them off entirely, thats bad advice XDDD*

@PandaPuff: You can change half way through like I am from Turkey to America. I'm probably going as Greece first, then Spain, and then maybe back to Greece XD.

I guess I've just seen your name around the internet or something. Nice to see that there are still YYH fans out there like me though!! Your Kurama cosplay is amazing, by the way!

@ PandaPuff: *makes excited America "BREEE" sound* Yaaaay!! Fanservice!!! We're gonna have so much fun!! I'm gonna try and go this week to a military supply store and find what I need for the cosplay ^^

If anything we can meet up with other cosplayers on July 25th? Not everyone there are Hetalia addicts but it'll be fun nontheless. Most, if not all, are going to NYAF too.There's a thread about it here:

For people coming late we'll wait 10min
Also some people will cosplay since it's optional

I think you take the E there but I'll look into that.

I know my way around fairly well, at least by the Long Island Railroad part. I could meet you somewhere around there, but I wouldn't have my wig and make up on yet.

Casual England is usually just a white dress shirt, vest, tan/brown slacks, and a tie. I don't think I'll be wearing the vest, since it'll be too hot. But I'll wear the rest and the wig and ask someone to do my eyebrows, that is, if you'll be America. I don't want to be the only one in cosplay ^^'

I have a stick that runs on batteries. (/unitentional innuedo) The turn to 3 different colors and a seizure (all colors blinking) option. xD

The question is where will this rave happen? As for speakers, it'd be nice if someone had like a small portable iHome that could work too. A lot of you have ipods already so you can just plug it in. Dunno if the speakers are that LOUD though.

so, I guess that renders me useless. I do have an ipod with a lot of fun dance songs and crazy anime songs on it though!

Guys, I kind of have some ridiculous ideas for games to play? I hope I don't seem stupid for suggesting them. Only silly. OTL

One is...well. If we can, Capture the Flag. Not sure where we'd do it, or if we could at all, but it's an idea, right?

Another one is based on the game "Sausage" I used to play when I was younger. Basically, we'd all sit in a circle. The person who's "it", in the sense of tag, has to be asked questions of any sort, but they can only answer with "Sausage". However, we can Hetaliafy it and make it so that the "it" person has to say "Pasta" or "My Vital Regions" or something. The first person who laughs is the next "it".

So basically, it'd go like this:

Person A: What is your name?
Person B: Pasta!

Person C: What country do you live in?
Person B: Pasta!

IDK, just suggestions. D: I have a bunch more that'd be fun, but yeah. I feel kind of silly for suggesting. xD

TALLESTnicole
07-13-2009, 08:06 PM

I, being Spain for part of the time, will probably say Nice Bananas! ;D XDDD

arthoniel
07-13-2009, 08:15 PM
@whoa_melly: That sounds awesome!! We should totally play that. As America, I'll probably say something like "A HERO!" every time... XD

whoa melly
07-13-2009, 08:44 PM
Yay, glad it has approval! I'm not sure what I'd say as Iceland, though. BLOOD SAUSAGE...actually I don't know. I'll think of something XD.

There's also Sock Wrestling which would be loads of (gay) fun. Not sure if it'd be as possible as the Hetaliafied!Sausage game, though.

EdxWinry
07-13-2009, 08:56 PM
We should play spin the bottle too ^___^ it'd be cute! I saw some people film it on youtube with a huge gathering.

I'd need to think of something British to say for the sausage game...any suggestions anyone?

TALLESTnicole
07-13-2009, 09:11 PM

Yaaay, we'll play spin the bottle then! If we had a Russia we should use a vodka bottle! Or if an America has one of those old fashioned kickass coca cola bottles we could use that! Though if it broke we'd all be bleeding all over...and then Russia would do nasty things to us...cause we all know blood turns him on.

What's sock wrestling?
Best game ever? :'D

Basically, we all get into a circle(again), and take off our shoes. Two people go in the center(we can decide by pairing, rivalry, friendship, etc of characters), and they have to "play wrestle" each other to get the other person's socks off in any way possible. We could just do one sock to make it easier. Catch is, they have to be on their knees the whole time and no really rough play. Common sense is kind of required so no one gets hurt XD

It'd be super gay and would cause a lot of laughs, but I don't even know if we'd be allowed to do it, unless if it was away from a big crowd of people.

EdxWinry
07-14-2009, 01:05 PM

The meetup on the 25th. GO TO IT. It'll be awesome~

Oh, and I was thinking- I'm not one of these people, but if someone gets awkward about spin the bottle, we can maybe make it a glomp circle instead? It's basically the same thing, except with glomps instead of kissing. Just an idea...

PandaPuff
07-15-2009, 04:10 PM
^This. It's not a requirement to make out with someone. Both parties should have the option of kiss or hug/glomp. Ask first you gaiz!

It's in Bryant Park, but I noticed a lot of people don't want to have it there because yea, it will be crowded as it is a Saturday. During the summer. In NYC. XD

My class ends a week after that, so I guess I can make it unless I have a massive amount of reading to do. /trying not to fall behind too much. XD;;

Also, on the subject of spin the bottle: you don't need to snog the person. A simple peck on the lips or the cheek is fine. That's what I'll be doing, since my girlfriend would murder whoever I kissed ^^' Sorry, Alfie, no real kisses for you ^.~

I'm stuck in an office all day in Cali, so I can't really whip out the wood, clay, and spray paint that I need to build Greece's Mont Athos. T_______T

But, I'm using the shirt and pants from my Spain cosplay as the jacket and pants as my Greece cosplay, and my wig arrived in NJ before I left, so thats going pretty good. I also have back up brown boots if I can find the knee high ones I need for Greece. I should definitely have this done by the end of summer.

To Do List:
-style wig
-steal white shirt from dad
-build Mont Athos
-get taller boots if possible

I know that dickies brand work shirts and pants were really popular for the military clothing. I used a dickies shirt for mine (the pants legs were wayyy to wide for me) and they are pretty spot on, but they only have the 2 pockets up top, rather than 2 up top and 2 at the bottom of the shirt.

Idk if they have green, but I'm sure if you find a khaki set that fits you, you can dye it green

Total would be more than $50.

AHAHA WORKED ON MY COSPLAY. Yeah, not as much for me... I've been broke myself (and of course, no one calls ME back about a job, since I've never had one before, which is ridiculous. I have no references, because I've never had a job. And I can't get a job, because I have no references. IT'S A HORRIBLE, VICIOUS CYCLE. Plus, the economy is crap and no one wants to hire someone like me... DX), plus I've got a friend who got lucky one day at the thrift store for her Austria, and likes to procrastinate on cosplay ("It should be really easy to find, so we don't need to do it now! We have ages before the con!") so I can never really go shopping anyway... basically, I have America's shirt. And that's it. Um... I work better under pressure? XD

Three days before the con I confessed my love for the girlfriend I have now, and she allowed me to kiss my past crush for our HieixKurama pictures.
