I'm going to head to the campground this week sometime to photograph some of the immediate area so everyone can see what we're looking at for scenery.

One idea we had when we were disussing the camping idea is that it'd be cool if some people brought LOTR or "woodsy" costumes and we could do some staged shots with that. I know of at least a couple of people who are coming with generic fantasy character costumes in addition to their normal cosplay.

Anyway, if you'd all like to plan anything like this in advance go ahead and post in here about it.

Hey can anyone suggest an easy woodsy costume....because Im thinking my schoolboy Utena costume (from the movie) isnt very woodsy...but its nearly done.

Freya
08-13-2003, 01:45 AM
Well I was gonna say if you were cosplaying Inuyasha it would be no problem.
Then again if Spooky Brew goes as Inuyasha, you can always be her Kagome. ^_^

I want to see if I can't get Frodo's blue (openning) outfit done in time. Otherwise I'll just revamp my hobbit lass or something.

Heh, my costumes are so ill-fitted in relation to the location.. ^^;

08-13-2003, 05:27 AM
eh,heh heh...if I am able to go...(meaning I don't have to work for those days or have too much homework and if my mom would let me) I'd love to come...now I don't have any LOTR related costumes...but hey...I can probably think of something let's see....
green cloak+chii ears+white blouse+nice black pants=forest chii(my version anyways....) *crosses fingers* I really hope I can make it..because due to "other" issues I couldn't make it to the past gatherings which made me really sad... *cries*....in anycase I would probably only stay for the day....

Nessa- bah all you.... Nessa people make me sick lol jk <3. Be a hot elf so you can molerst me and stuff lol X3

Mink

CinsAngel
08-13-2003, 12:45 PM
Duck>>*High Fives!* Dangit! I hope you can get the day off! I haven't seen you since Gathering 2001! I'll work on Pursuading Jen to come along.

Lil>>Please Join in if you like! I think it would be fun to get a group:)

Sana>>*Laugh* Hopefully I'll get mine done too. But I got a bit of time before classes start.:)

Mink>>Well I'm hoping There will be some Water around to pose by if not...well, thats where the dunken factor can come into play *laughs*

Mink: I know you just wore your Kagome to the picnic, but either Kagome or Inu Yasha would be pretty woodsy..

Horay for random LOTR cosplay! Cins - I actually just started on a pirate costume, if I get it done in time I'll bring it along. ^-^

I was thinking it would be really cool to bring my Caroline costume, but it needs adjustments and it's such a pain to get into (painting the hands, and whatnot) that I'm thinking not.. but I'm trying to think of an actual anime costume to bring...

L to the 3rd
08-13-2003, 01:46 PM
I'd go to the camping trip if I can bring a trailer.. LOL. ^_^;

we *almost* went to another place that had two cabins and a tent area surrounding it, but the scenery around this one wound up being much, much better.

Haha, there's no way I'm evengoing to attempt to make something close to a LotR inspired costume. Besides... the woods... green... something else is just too perfect to pass up =p

Yuna: =O Bah, no time to finish a Rosa costume; that and Matt has too much on his plate to make a Cecil :D (plots for future costumes) But perhaps I can bring my FFII Maria and be obscure fellow even-numbered final fantasy female

Sana-chan
08-14-2003, 02:52 AM
I'll more than likely be bringing Summoner Yuna along with my Legolas costume so yay more ff lol.

I want Matt to be Gollum lol juss cuz he can impersonate him so well *o*

I didn't even realize that you guys were making those costumes! I just love Rosa's costume, wow, how cool o__o; Which Cecil is he doing? Palidin or Dark Knight? Wow! I didn't een know you guys were making them... *-*

No one has to bring an FF costume just cause I am, the scenery is just really apropriate for that costume of mine =3 I think a LotR thing would be awesome, there's just no way I'm going to stress myself out over a brand new costume like that at this point.

Alaria
08-14-2003, 04:48 AM
heehee, I brings the FF because I luvs the FF ^__^ And I'll prob end up bringing my Alaria elf to join in the elfly fun. But hey, we've got a few weeks, who knows what'll happen :D

Yuna: XD Well, Matt doesn't know about it yet, heehee :x But I think it would be tons o' fun to do a FFIV group!

08-14-2003, 05:46 AM
I'd like to go since I missed the last 2 photo shoots and I live in San Diego :p ...but none of my costumes would really fit in that scenery... lol

Don't get me wrong, you don't need to have a "forest costume" to attend the event. :) My suggestion was that if people *had* stuff like that it'd be a perfect opportunity to wear it for photos.

You are welcome to bring any costume you'd like, and we'll photograph it. There is more to the area than forest, there are hiking trails, creeks, a lake (way off the path though), mountain meadows, a scenic view of a desert canyon (way off the path as well) and more. Plus . . . s'mores.

Benda
08-14-2003, 02:37 PM
It seems like everyone or at least the majority of people who are going are going to be LOTR or forest characters. So if you aren't wearing those types of costumes you'll kind of be left out, like they might fell left out. I dunno. I don't have any costumes that are like that and so I'm just wearing one that I'm currently making. I love the costume its just I don't want to be the only one not dressed as an elf or from LOTR.

Alaria
08-14-2003, 06:02 PM
Admin: S'mores?? =O.... don't tempt me :x

Benda: I've been to the last two photoshoots, and you won't be left out at all ^__^ Kyle gives equal opportunity photography wise no matter what you're wearing, and everyone is so nice that I don't see how anyone could be left out unless they were actively trying to isolate themselves. You should wear whatever you want :) Believe me, you'll have fun!

Arisugawa Juri
08-14-2003, 07:08 PM
Quite a variety of scenery indeed. I don't feel so out of place, now, and neither should anyone else. ^^ I cannot wait to go. Should we bring our own cameras as well to take snapshots of the new people we meet?

I'd actually recommend bringing an extra costume to the event in case we wind up having time to do more photos and you want more pictures taken. I'm bringing all of my equipment and I plan on using it. :)

Definitely, bring a camera. While we aren't allowing any commercial photography due to the fact that it's a private, closed event, you're more than welcome to take personal photos.

Just kidding you guys. Since it's LOTR, Pirates, Random Elfs, and crap like that, why don't we set the theme as "Fantasy" and leave it at that? I'll come as a A traveling wizard since no one seems to want to do human magic users.

*rolls D20*

Yes! My spell of "Random Awesomness* has casted Poison on Nessa, given duck actual duck wings, given Kyle TROGDOR FIRE BREATH, taken the red out of CinsAngel's hair, turned Matt into an actual Nake Elf (><), added to my ogre slaying kife a +4 against fangirls, AND makes my ass look better in spandex! I am the greatest Wizard ever!

People will feel left out so we should have like...a double theme. Kinda like Shin Getta Robo Vs Neo Getta Robo did...

LOTR/POTC Fantasy Vs Random Cosplay!


We could call it an all out battle! That way everyone fits in.

Oh and Kyle, one thing I wanted to ask is...

We can take personal pictures, and so that means that we cannot post them online, correct? And if so, would it be ok for us to post them on Cosplay.com atleast?

Let's just leave the theme as "cosplay" so nobody gets confused or feels left out. :)

no no no, don't read into this too much. It basically means press coverage isn't allowed, i.e. you can't come from another website and take photos of everyone, or use the event for commercial purposes. It's also the reason for the model release form for the photos I take, since it's not a public event. You can post your personal photos all you want.

Tetsugyu
08-14-2003, 10:47 PM
Hey...I liked that title! People won't be too confused by it. But yeah "Cosplay" is easy to remember as a theme. *winces*


Pics: Ahh ok thanks for the clarification. :D

Admin
08-14-2003, 10:51 PM
No problem. I just didn't want the event steamrolling into a theme of some sort. I think we'll wind up with a good mix of fantasy and anime cosplay.

Tetsugyu
08-14-2003, 11:08 PM
A good mix? That means 3 Fantasy Cosplayers and the rest anime. :D

Aye, no theme. BOOOO! lol j/k

08-15-2003, 12:01 AM
LOL! Sorry, how else can Kyle get the TROGDOR FIRE BREATH? The spell said I had to choose a vestial madien (Pref with a nice rack) in order to power Kyle's Dragon flame. Poisoning Nessa and looking good in spandex was a bonus. Damn +4 against fangirls cost me 3/4 my magic meter and 35 MP.

the wings on duck was just something kool I wanted to do.


Drunken Pirate? How about a Druken Chinese Warrior? lol
If I had a pirate costume then maybe.

duck
08-15-2003, 01:50 AM
I told Cindy I wanted to be a Drunken Pirate Faerie! (actually, I think I told her she should be one, but maybe that was just me speaking subconsciously...)

I like wings. Mmmmmm...

08-15-2003, 03:25 AM
Duck>>*L* Yup you did. Course With me and my amazing skills of coordination, I'd probably get stuck on a tree somewhere while wearing wings...therefore, I chose a plain ol Pirate;)
Really hope you can go! Jenn seems to be tagging along! WOO!

Anyone else doing non-fantasy costumes?

I figure as long as we're spending the night Ill bring a few costumes and see what I end up wanting to wear. Some LoTR, some Anime/Manga.

I LOVE camping, and adding in some cosplay to this is even more awesome :) However, not just the fact it's too long of a drive for one night, but I have JTAF that weekend. *sniff* oh well, I hope you guys have an awesome time! And hopefully next time I can make it :)

It's not that. ^^; I'm just thinking that it's a small shame I can't have an Edge costume ready... so we could have photoshoots together and stuff...

Oh well, I didn't really have plans to make an Edge costume this year anyway. :P Ha ha...

Ohhh dear. I really want to make an insanely orange pirate oufit. Oh yes yes yes.

Insanely orange pirate outfit... I'm thinking of May from Guilty Gear right now. If you did that costume, it would be awesomeness that would rock my socks. XD

Mmmmm....... s'mooooooooooooooooooores.......

Now to make quick cash without my parents getting angry....there like "Were buying you books and helping with stuff for college and then you go spend money on this?! I dont think so!" so I have my work cut out for me. If I miss this I think I shall cry and pout.

Orange pirate costume?! Oh Miss Citrine that would be SO cool.

Right now I think my friend and I are going to do fire and ice pixies and then a few others. We shall see but I am so excited!!

Lol. Since I just sort of found out I was going to this thing.. TODAY. And I have a con in two days, then go to this thing three days later...


I think I'll just make a nice random Fairy / Elf Costume of sorts.

I'm in the middle of sprucing up my Legolas costume, Or I'd wear that, and my Jack Sparrow won't be done until Ani-Magic! ;_;

Yay! So random costumes are ok? That is so cool.. I was afraid it'd just be anime stuff. But yayness!!

I have two costumes (incomplete at the moment because most of it is everyday attire that needs to be washed) that would fit that atmosphere. One is a vampire costume that would be cool to have some pictures taken in the dark. She has a cape and that is woodsy. Then I also have a random woodsy-maiden thingy.. O_o;

Other costumes I'll be bringing is Anna from Shaman King (hopefully.. bet most of ya didn't even know I had that one! Bwuhaha!), and possibly another that has yet to be decided. I'll just surprise you. They aren't woodsy though. *pout* Still cool...

And just for the heck I might pack my BR outfit (NO WEAPON I KNOW) in case I get bored. lol...

Wa! Sorry.. I talk to much. ^.^

Just wondering since i'll probably have to stop friend from bringing it along. He wants to wander as a mage of sort.

08-28-2003, 05:08 PM
I think a walking staff would fit in just fine with a campground. :)
