Zero/Suzaku? Do you mean like at the end when Suzaku is pretending to be Zero? xD

I'm a bit confused.

Yes thats exactly right ^_^; I would like to cosplay as Zero/Lelouch again, but with what I have in mind for the NYAF its probably better if it was Suzaku instead. Besides it might be interesting to have things turn out this way for now >_>;

I've never heard about someone who cosplayed Zero/Suzaku, but it looks really great. ^^
In which day you'll cosplay Lelouch as Emperor? I'd like to see your costume. *-*

Did you do Zero last time? =O

I remember last year I saw a really impressive Zero xD Or maybe it was just me thinking it was impressive because it was my first con.

I'd love to see Emperor Lelouch xD

Thanks! I just hope I can pull of a good Suzaku though since my only experience has been with Lelouch thus far x.x;

I've decide to probably do the Zero/Suzaku cosplay on Friday while the Emperor Lelouch cosplay on Saturday. Maybe I'll see you around the convention during that day ^_^;

I was only there for Saturday last year regrettably, but I did have a lot of fun! It was also my first time cosplaying Zero so I was also happy about how people received it ^_^; I do remember seeing another Zero so I'm not sure if the one your talking about is me. However, I do have some pics posted in my profile of my time at the NYAF as Zero. If you think it can help you remember by all means take a look ^_^;

Well the Emperor is looking forward to his first appearance at the NYAF! ^_^; Even if it sadly isn't his first appearance at a con >_>;

Alphonia
06-20-2009, 12:26 AM
*gasp* I think you are that Zero!

I went on Saturday only too and the most memorable Zero for me was the one with the badass helmet. I was freaking out about it (even though I didn't watch Code Geass yet at that time) but I was too shy to go ask for any pictures (since I was just wearing a lame otaku shirt Dx).

I had a a lot of fun last year too. The con was from 10AM-10PM but I stayed till 7PM when all was left was the hentai panels. I would've stayed longer if there was more xD. Going to NYAF last year inspired me to cosplay. It was mainly all the awesome Code Geass and Arrancar cosplayers that made me want to be cool like them xP

I remember lugging around a whole backpack of food too because someone told me that the food at cons are expensive and I ended up making bento to take to the con. We sat down and started having lunch by one of the bathrooms with the hot dog stand and people thought it was cool that we had bento xD

I'm glad you liked the Zero cosplay! ^_^; To be honest I wasn't sure if after a year I'd meet anyone who would remember it from that convention so it is surprising to know it made an impact x_x; You didn't need to be shy though, I never turn down anyone who asks for a picture and I'm always polite or at least I hope I show myself to be >_>;

The NYAF is still without a doubt my favorite con. I'm happy to know that you were inspired by most of the cosplays there and I'm sure your cosplays are just as cool as the ones that inspired you ^_^;

Our Saturday cosplay is a secret, but we will be Clamp characters :3 There are going to be 4 of us, and we'd love to go to the photoshoot. We are going to try to compete in the Masquerade on Saturday, so hopefully we'll be able to make the photoshoot as well.

I always remember cool cosplays and since NYAF 2008 was my first con, it had a even deeper impression on me.

I have a tendency to be a bit shy at first. Though it doesn't take much for me to break out of that shyness. I'm only shy when approaching people I don't know. Maybe after a few more times of con going I can get rid of this shyness xP.

I think you'll do it very well. ^^

Yeep! Unfortunately, I'll go just on saturday so I really hope to see ya! I'd LOVE to see you as Emperor Lelouch. ** But please if you see Me, I'll be wearing C.C.'s black dress of the CD/DVD cover version, say hello. ^^ This will be my first time at the NYAF so I probably be shocked for all the time and I'll lost my mind.

I'm sure the NYAF will treat you well and you'll find it exciting ^_^; It was not only the first place I cosplayed Zero, but the first place I started cosplaying. Its just a great con overall in what it has to offer. Whether this be from the con itself or its cosplayers. I'll be around all day for the most part so I'm sure will run into each other eventually ^_^;

I'm going to be cosplaying Chii from Chobits. This is my first con, so I'm really really excited! ^3^

I actually haven't bought my blonde Chii wig yet. Does anyone know where I could get a good one? I'm an amateur cosplayer, so I'm not sure which one to get.

Woo a Chii xD
Which outfit are you planning to do? Are you gonna show up on saturday for the CLAMP gathering that we're planning? xP

I'm not an expert but well its usually nice to check out a store that sells wigs around your area. You get to try them on and stuff and it really helps. Even if you don't see a wig that doesn't work for Chii I'd say get yourself a wig cap and try on something too, maybe with that hair color or a similar style (like the bangs) then walk out with the wig cap.

The wig cap is good for when you do get your wig. It makes wearing a wig less uncomfortable and it helps tuck your hair away under the wig properly. I've seen quite a few cosplayers that don't wear wig caps when I walk into the bathrooms when they are removing their wigs to adjust it and stuff.

You can order one from cosworx.com if there are no stores or you can't find it in the stores. I'd say go for one of the long wigs that price for like $40 or more. Chii has long hair, you can be cheap and go for a shorter wig but well, in my opinion i feel like it's nicer to be more accurate.

I actually got the dress from someone else, but it's based of of the pink dress with the train in the back with black ribbons. I'm hoping to show up on Saturday, but I'm bringing a friend with me so I don't know if she'd be okay with the CLAMP gathering thing.

Thanks so much for the advice about the wig! I'm really new to cosplaying so I wasn't sure about wigs and the like. I'll definitely keep the wig cap thing in mind, thanks! Oh, if my friend doesn't cosplay as a CLAMP character, could she still hang out with us?

Aww that dress is really pretty. I look forward to seeing it =)

You're welcome =) Of course she can come along, Though she might feel kind of left out or something? Especially if we take decide to take pictures as a group.

I honestly don't know what she'd be cosplaying as, but I don't think she'd mind not getting her picture taken. She's kinda shy.

If she hasn't decided yet maybe you should convince her to do something from Chobits. It's usually more fun to cosplay as a pair/group. I convinced my close friend to cosplay as Mokona Modoki with me. We're so excited about it now xD

Well, she already has the Chii ears, and I heard her talking about getting Chii's brown dress. We could be a Chii couple I guess. :)

Oh boy...this is going to be fun riding the MTA...

BWT, soeunkyo, I really hope you to finish Lelouch Warlock's costume in time, I'll be great. *-*

Oh, but the most important... At what time will we meet? xD

Aqua's Rhapsody
07-20-2009, 09:38 PM
Well assuming that we do get picked to be in the Masquerade, anytime before 3 PM Saturday works for us :3

I want to know Aqua's Rhapsody secret costume. XD


I want to give a hint but my friend won't let me. Well, this is how you will figure out that it is me at the photshoot. I'll PROBABLY be the only boy in a dress xD

Alphonia
07-20-2009, 09:59 PM
We should wait till it's closer before we decide a time. We don't want to clash with anything else.

I'm kinda disappointed there are no other Tsubasa characters reporting Dx. I feel lonely as Mokona Dx

@Aqua's Rhapsody
Are you crossdressing? Or your character is a dude wearing a dress? =O

Thats the map of the convention. I'm thinking about the area by the Entrance to 1B and the artist alley. I'm not sure but I remember that's the bathroom area, unless there is a better location and no other group is meeting up there at that time.

I'll be cosplaying as Shirley Fenette from Code Geass. I'll even try to buy a Lelouche plushie to make it more comedic haha. Lelouch is gonna sing this song for love to have her back.. Everytime I see your passing image.. It becomes a great pain to me.. My heart hurts just thinking about you.. I think I'm a really bad person..When I bring the image of your face.. I just sigh.. Worrying about if I should leave.. The times we've had.. I want to say it now.. I want to tell you now.. all the memories of love take them.. Euphy Euphy Euphy Shirley Shirley Shirley ( where did you go..where), Euphy Euphy Euphy Shirley Shirley Shirley ( Where are you now). I didn't mean to shoot you Euphy.. I wanted to kill Rolo for stabbing you Shirley.. You know that I'm crying deep down inside.! It's a song I'm gonna sing for NYAF XD Hopefully I see a euphie and shirley together so I can sing to both of em!!!!

If I remember correctly their is a large open area over by the food court with a nice set of stairs. Their may be less traffic, but it would be out of the way and less chance someone will get their costumes stepped on or something.

soeunkyo
08-16-2009, 05:52 PM
Sounds like a great Idea lol xD did everyone got a solid Time and date for the shoots?

My boyfriend is trying to persuade me to bring our Magic Knight Rayearth costumes to wear Saturday, but since we're coming up from Florida I think the armor and giant petticoat might be a hassle, but I'm considering it. If I can figure out a way to transport them, we'll be wearing Hikaru and Lantis. It's also an issue seeing as how right after we get back from AWA we're flying out to New York for a week, so I won't have much time to pack them up. Closer to the con I'll know if it's feasible, though. :)

I'm fine with it, if everyone else agrees then we're set.

Hey just poping in. The place you're talking about I belive is the pit or floor in front of the Javits Special event theater thing. From the Event registration you'll have to go all the way to the middle of the Javits and Walk up a set of stairs

Here's the Javits map.

You see on Coucourse Level 2. You'll see on the bottom floorplan there is a rectangle. Thats the area.

09-17-2009, 10:31 PM
*sniff* I don't think we can go to NYAF as Mokona =/ Some things happened and it won't be available for the convention.

But I'll still come to the gathering since I still have my CCS uniform. I'll be there as Tomoyo =)

Well I updated the time and location on the first post for anyone who has been too lazy to read through the thread.
