Anyone?

There was such a lovely turn up of people cosplaying Tales of Characters last year, I'm hoping to see more coming this year.

Any of the games in the series, really. Not being specific, because I really would love to put aside some time at Metrocon this year to do a Tales of Series Photoshoot.

This post will be updated as new information comes in.

Photoshoot


Tales of Panel

Cosplayers


I will personally not be actively looking or updating this gathering until after Megacon.

You're doing the panel again this year? I'd like to help out if I'm not busy with anything else.

I'd like to do Raine this year.

Haha, I think I remember seeing you at Megacon last year. I hope you'll be able to get your wig D:

I love hearing about groups because then I can actually plan for things! I've been wanting to do Lady Martel for a while now, but not sure which version to do - Phantasia or Symphonia? Phantasia OVA has purple hair and dark green dress, Symphonia would be a combined variation since the pants won't look good on me but some sprites have her in a dress.

Either one will work since people rarely cosplay characters outside the main party to begin with lol, but I think the Symphonia Martel will be more recognizable, if that's what you're going for.

I want to have Raine done by Metrocon, but the robe is a lot more detailed than I remembered.

UchihaGirl
03-23-2010, 09:39 PM
I'm leaning towards Symphonia as well because I like more elements of it. The leaf ears, for instance.

Mish LexiiCHU~
03-23-2010, 10:12 PM
Yay, Symphonia Martel~! The leaves make her outfit so lovelyy~


Also, I've decided that I will be doing Gauche for when we meet up...but only if I could find a good enough wig~ If anyone has any suggestions that'd be great~<3 D;
If not, I shall be going as Arietta in her white and pink outfit~! ' u'

{attachment is reference~ Gauche is the one of the left, with red hair~}

hehe their swords remind me of emil's.

What day are we thinking about the shoot cause I'm probably gonna have to change one of the days into Emil for it. Cause I know if the panels are happening saturday and sunday, it wont be on friday.

Taisa_Azudragon
03-24-2010, 01:36 PM
Funny enough, Friday might be a possible day, since I don't have anything schedule to do Friday.

The other option is Sunday, because I'll be busy most of Saturday to get a time slot to do the shoot. (hurray, volunteer hours)

If we're doing it Friday, I'm looking at either around 1pm or 6pm.
Sunday, I like to see if we can do it around 10 or 11 in the morning. Trying to think of some good times where we won't die in the heat and all.

To: Mish LexiiCHU~
I'm no good with offering wig suggestions lol, but ebay will probably have what you're looking for.

kikuyo
03-24-2010, 02:04 PM
lol I like Friday, that way I don't have to lug Emil around with my ff cosplay on saturday. Sunday Imma be the same ff cosplay but i can do the photoshoot and change. Im up for either.

Bwahaa, alright~ I hope soo~ xwx

Mmm but yes, Friday afternoon-evening or Sunday morning sound like pretty decent times~!

Taisa, did you get my PM?

kikuyo
06-03-2010, 02:14 PM
So what day do you guys wanna do it? I'm for Friday cause I'll be Emil and m friend will be Sheena again that day.

UchihaGirl
06-04-2010, 12:44 AM
Friday would be nice for me. I don't think we've got anything planned that day, lol.

Taisa_Azudragon
06-20-2010, 12:39 AM
So how does Friday around 6pm sound to everyone?

Meeting place, upstairs between the escalators?

moonfall
06-20-2010, 02:06 AM
That's the same time as the Hetalia meetup/panel, I think. If anyone is cosplaying both series, it might be a problem.

UchihaGirl
06-23-2010, 11:40 PM
Can I get some opinions?

I am looking at wigs for Martel, and I am trying to decide between these three.

This (http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e135/ShadowBankotsu/Tales%20of%20Symphonia/martel.gif) is the reference picture I am using.

And these are the wigs.
Wig 1 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260602445005)
Wig 2 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150366485313)
Wig 3 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130318620486)

I think 3 is closest, but I like how much fuller 1 looks, but it'd have to be straighten (something I may not have time for as it is). 2 is just kinda there cause I think that 3 looks too blue. Opinions?

06-24-2010, 08:28 AM
If lucky I'll have Harold from Tales of Destiny II (NOT Eternia) for Sunday, but no guarantee.

Taisa_Azudragon
06-24-2010, 11:35 AM
Moonfall: If that is a huge problem, I'm willing to move it to 5pm or 7pm. I'm just concern that we'll lose daylight, if I push it much later or it'll be too hot, sooner.

UchihaGirl: I don't think the first one is a good option. It's also a wig, so it might be difficult to straighten it. I actually like how vibrant the color is for 2, although 3 is probably the closest to Marta's hair as you've said. Toss up between 2 and 3 for me.

Hime_no_Toki: HAROLD. I hope you'll be able to, I'd love to see her.

Mish LexiiCHU~
06-25-2010, 09:25 AM
Oh cool~! So there's 2 meet-up days~? ' w'
I will *try* to get Gauche done for saturday, but Arietta is a definate go for friday, with an Anise and maybe Guy~

kikuyo
06-25-2010, 09:53 AM
I'll only be able to do the Friday one with the Sheena. We're doing Persona 3 on saturday. so we can't join.

Taisa_Azudragon
06-25-2010, 11:39 AM
Mish LexiiCHU~: Awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing the costumes when they're done. I'll keep a note to cosplay Alexei on Saturday then.

kikuyo: That's cool, I thought I have a second shoot in case people don't make it for the friday one.

To Everyone:
I placed a second photoshoot meet, because I noticed in my schedule that I have a two hour break before I do my volunteer work. So I thought I have another small shoot right after the Tales panel. The main one will be on Friday though, this one is for anyone who couldn't make it or just want to have more photos taken lol

So question now is, what time are you guys down with for Friday's shoot? I'm still want to go with 6pm, but I'm willing to change it. Also, since it's awfully close to dinnertime, anyone up to grabbing some food afterwards? lol

Mish LexiiCHU~
06-25-2010, 07:48 PM
yaaaay, Alexeiii~!! owo

I'm down for 6pm~! ..or pretty much any time after 5pm, really~
haha, dinner sounds good too~! ' w'

kikuyo
06-30-2010, 11:42 PM
im liking this idea. And 5pm too cause it'll give us all time to group up and such and be able to start pics asap. lol where we meeting again?

Taisa_Azudragon
06-30-2010, 11:51 PM
....All right, I'll stick it at 5pm then. On Friday, we'll be meeting upstairs, between the escalators. From there, we'll relocate to a less crowded area for the shoot. On Saturday, just swing by Room 19, after the Tales Panel lol

I know of a shopping/restaurant district about a 15-20minute walk, but uh...I've been going there every year, but it's not fun walking for that long in costume in the heat XD

And I think there was a subway and Publix just across the bridge behind the convention. Not sure of what else there is nearby. I'd love to go for some McDonalds though |D

moonfall
07-01-2010, 12:36 AM
I thought the Tales panel was Sunday?

UchihaGirl
07-01-2010, 12:42 AM
Well, ordered the wig - I ended up going with the 3rd one. Working on the costume, and yeah...I hate the pattern, lol. Drafting my own, yay! And I got my leaf ears done. My costume is kinda a mix of the different versions cause there was a general lack of consistancy.

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-01-2010, 10:56 AM
Taisa; mkay~ Anise, Guy and I shall be there friday and I will on saturday~~! :3
oh yeah, the heeat...a lot of us have long sleeeves too~ o; But..maybe we'll get lucky and have that really nice breeze that comes around the evening time~ and I second mcdonalds~! xD But pretty much anything is okay with mee~

moonfall; I think there's two panel dates; saturday and sunday~

uchihagirl; yay~! good luck on everything~! x}

UchihaGirl
07-01-2010, 12:30 PM
Maybe we can track down Morataya and get him to do a shoot at night, but he charges...I can ask him if enough people are interested?

My bodice won't fit right....need to try yet another pattern design. Going to work on Adiane for a bit since I've kinda got all her kinks worked out. Anyone in here in the Gurren Lagann group?

Taisa_Azudragon
07-02-2010, 03:55 PM
Yep, the panel is on Saturday and Sunday.

And we shall I see and hope XD. Cause they have a nice selection of restaurant down by that citywalk.

And um...well I could help with taking the photos, but then I wouldn't be able to be in the shots XD; How much money does he ask...?

Looked at his prices - 4-6 people is $30 for an hour. I'd have to ask if we're expecting more. I mean, I have a friend who loves taking photos as well, and rather not be in them, so she could help too.

I have a friend like that as well and she is going to Metrocon all 3 days I believe. I'll ask her.

07-06-2010, 12:41 AM
I think we'll put Morataya on hold. Rather keep this free of charge and save everyone on their money if we can do a shoot for free. If you guys know anyone who would be interested, please do let them know about this :D

UchihaGirl
07-06-2010, 09:44 AM
No prob! We use him for our RO shoots, and he's amazingly talented. Just figured with enough people, it would be cheap enough for person to pitch in.

I really need to get to work on Martel's dress though.....stupid pattern of evilness.....

Mish LexiiCHU~

Oh noez~! Well at least there's still 2 weeks left to get er done~! Go-go~!

I'm halfway done with Gauche~<3 I might even have time to make her gun-sword~! And I'm just waiting on Arietta's wig~! so excited~ ' u'
how is everyone else doing on their costumes~?

07-06-2010, 07:36 PM
Patterning is always the fun part with Tales costumes, eh? I'm working on Harold, mostly tinkering around with getting everything fitted right. Sadly I won't be able to wear it Friday but I'll be in it on Sunday, and it will be hard to miss because her outfit is very colorful!

I dunno how you guys draft stuff yourselves. It's been like banging my head on the wall, lots of pinning, sewing, ironing, repinning, testing, cut, repeat process x3. @_@

Right now, I am going to focus on tackling the rest of Adiane, and the worry about Martel.

And Lexi....don't remind me about the 2 weeks mark....too soon......

Aaahh first time using this website. e.o Anyway... I'll be going as Emil for the Friday shoot and my friend Abby is going to be Decus~ And Sunday I'll be the movie version of Flynn if I can get it done on time. >< I probably can, but I need boots still. Is the second shoot gonna be Saturday or Sunday? o.o If Saturday maybe I can change to Flynn or Emil again for it. xD

hfajakfa I'm so excited! And I'm looking forward to seeing Martel there. The third wig was definitely a really good choice. ^^

Hellooo~! ' u'
Yaaay, more Tales~!<3 Yep, the second shoot is on Saturday, and I think there are only a couple of us Vesperia cosplayers (;sadface~) so it'd be awesome if you could get Flynn done~!

UchihaGirl
07-07-2010, 10:47 PM
Yeah....too bad the seller hasn't shipped it yet and the payment cleared a week ago. It says it takes them 7-14 to arrive, but man, it better get here sooner cause I need to sew the ears into the wig.

Taisa_Azudragon
07-08-2010, 01:29 AM
I'm still waiting for my wig too. And I ordered it on June 22nd :| and I think I know who you are Mel-mousy~ I'll update the list with you on there in a sec and yes, the second shoot is on Saturday like Lexi said. Btw Lexi, I think I might be seeing you at Anime Orlando Day. MAYBE.

I got everything cut out for Alexei's outfit, but I'm still trying to figure out how to get the armor made DX. First time for me making armor and all and I'm using a tutorial that teaches you how to make armor out of foam. It's neat.

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-08-2010, 01:15 PM
Ahhh, everyone's waiting for wigs~! D:

yaay, Taisa~!! ' w' what cosplay might you wear~?
Oh goood luck with the armor~!

Mel-mousy
07-08-2010, 01:21 PM
Lexii- It's only the movie version though. xD Like their night time wear, so it won't be all that recognizable. >< But thanks! Knowing that I shall make sure to change into him for the second photoshoot~

Uchiha- Uh oh that's not good. o.o Try contacting the seller and telling them that.

Taisa- You should try contacting the seller as well. >< For what cosplay is it? Because if it's Alexei, I have my Riku (KH) wig I could bring with me just in case your wig doesn't get here on time for whatever reason. And yes you do know who I am~ xD

Taisa_Azudragon
07-08-2010, 09:52 PM
Lexii: Thanks! And I'm not going to be wearing any cosplay, just bringing my Raven coat cause I'll be taking photos while I'm there. o/

Mel: Yea, I plan to, and if it's going to come late, if you're cool with letting me borrow the wig then sure, bring it <3

moonfall
07-08-2010, 09:55 PM
I'm not even cosplaying Tales this con, and I've still got wig issues. Hopefully they'll ship fast.
I think I already have a wig for my planned Raine cosplay (hoping to have by AFO).

Mel-mousy
07-08-2010, 10:46 PM
Taisa- Yeah I'm most likely bringing it anyway since I may be Riku for one of the days. xD Just in case though, a day or two before the con maybe IM me or something to remind me. I have a checklist set up for what I'm bringing, but again, juussstt in case. xD

kikuyo
07-08-2010, 11:28 PM
Hey Mel, you gonna be Emil for the photoshoot?

Mel-mousy
07-09-2010, 11:17 AM
Kikuyo- Yep~ You are too, right? We could do some sort of Emil and Ratatosk thing. xD

kikuyo
07-09-2010, 11:43 AM
yeah. lol U can have marta though << XD

she bothered me sooooo much in the game im sorry. XD plus ill have mom...i mean sheena with me.

Mel-mousy
07-09-2010, 01:39 PM
xD I wonder if there's gonna be a Marta? o: That'd actually be cool. xD
Haha the Sheena mom thing took me a while to get. Just make sure she doesn't find out WHY you think she's a motherly figure. Or at least the reason in Tenebrae's perspective...

Gaah I'm so excited! >w<

kikuyo
07-09-2010, 01:54 PM
lmao trust me she already does, and whenever I call her mom she hits me as if I were Zelos. XD

Mel-mousy
07-09-2010, 01:56 PM
Baw. :C We Emils needa stick together and not get accused of such things. :C It was Tenebrae's fault!

kikuyo
07-09-2010, 02:35 PM
Yeah! lol I do like the ratatosk idea though. We can go back and forth depending on our moods. XD Also if you are doing flynn sunday i request a hug and picture of you.

I also found a photographist for the shoot on friday. :D Her name is courtney.

Mel-mousy
07-09-2010, 08:22 PM
Yepp it'll be cool! And lol sure. xD; Again, I'm doing the movie version though so it's not all that recognizable otl. But sure. xD;

Ohyeah what's going on photographer wise? o.o

UchihaGirl
07-09-2010, 09:01 PM
Wig arrived today....it's really soft and pretty, but I didn't see that it was a mix color and not a solid green. So I'ma try to figure out if I have time to try to dye it. It actually looks much darker in person...and more blue.

And yes, Mel-mousy, I should have my Martel ready. I bought the base for the staff today and the shoes. Gonna attach leaf ears here after I treat the wig, and then start drafting some more patterns for the dress of doom (I'm doing a weird mix version).

Mel-mousy
07-09-2010, 09:29 PM
Make sure that it's actually a kind of wig you can dye. o3o I know a lot of wigs can't be dyed, so yeah.

UchihaGirl
07-09-2010, 10:24 PM
Make sure that it's actually a kind of wig you can dye. o3o I know a lot of wigs can't be dyed, so yeah.

I kept looking at it and looking and it, and the seller says it can be dyed. I think it might be okay so I went ahead and treated it with Motions. I'll let it dry tonight and tomorrow and hopfeully, I'll see about sewing the leaf ears in.

Mel-mousy
07-09-2010, 11:26 PM
Ahh alrighty. Hope it worked out! ^^

UchihaGirl
07-12-2010, 11:06 AM
So here (http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t70/AzuraFrost/IMG_9198.jpg) is the wig with the ears being tested. Also, yay for early morning and no make-up. Please ignore the mess behind me.

Mel-mousy
07-12-2010, 12:36 PM
Oh wow even though it's a tad bit on the blue side, that wig looks AMAZING for Martel! :D And it looks so soft. <3 The leaves look great too. Nice job! ^^

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-12-2010, 01:47 PM
Awww, it looks lovely~! Cx
I love the leaves~! what did you make them out of~? .o.

UchihaGirl
07-12-2010, 10:27 PM
Awww, it looks lovely~! Cx
I love the leaves~! what did you make them out of~? .o.

Craft foam., then painted a mix of green paints. I still need to add veins to the leaves to give it a more leaf-like look. I have a headband but I think it looks more seamless if I could sew them into the weft area.

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-13-2010, 09:18 AM
Ohh~! sooo prettyy~
Yeah, the veins would definately give it more of that leafy look~!

UchihaGirl
07-16-2010, 11:10 AM
Is it a bad thing that I am only just now starting on the Martel dress? It took me this long to find the perfect pattern (ended up using a McCall's pattern for Lord of the Rings, lol) and it should be easy enough.......right?

How many days to the con?!?

Hime no Toki
07-16-2010, 11:36 AM
Seven days left, basically. Harold is taking a lot more effort than I thought it would, but it's coming along pretty well. This weekend I really gotta bite the bullet and get it to at least 90% completion. I have to go out and get a couple small items to finish her but nothing major.

kikuyo
07-16-2010, 12:02 PM
This might be my last con for Emil. :'( My bust area is getting to big, so it's either make it bigger somehow or no more. :(

UchihaGirl
07-16-2010, 12:36 PM
That is my goal for Martel - the dress is cut and pinned, time to sew, then start figuring out the green part on the dress. After that, it's bias tape time, and the cloak. My goal - tomorrow night. Then all that's left is the staff.

We can do it everybody! Let's make ours the best Tales group ever!!!

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-16-2010, 02:41 PM
Yes, let's try to get everything done this weekend so next week wont be so stressful~
I cant wait to see everyone~~! :3

Mel-mousy
07-16-2010, 09:32 PM
Uchiha- Yeah exactly 7 days. xD You can do ittt! Gogogo~ >w< I'm so excited to see your Martel cosplay. <3 I love Martel haha.

Kikuyo- Ironically enough, I have an issue in my Emil cosplay where my bust is NOT big enough to fit in it right. xD I have to pin it on the sides whenever I wear it. e.o Hopefully by next week I'll be able to sew it in a little more so it fits better... (And then my gloves aren't black otl. owell. :C)

kikuyo
07-17-2010, 05:21 AM
Well after this con I'm planning to take it back to my friend who commissioned it because she was depressed when I told her and we're gonna see what we can do. Probably add More fabric to the back area so it fits easier and for use for future cons :D

Mel-mousy
07-17-2010, 12:39 PM
Ahh gotcha. Well hope it works out! o:

UchihaGirl
07-17-2010, 01:03 PM
Alright, so I got the green fabric cut out, now to figure out how to attach it to the white. I think the bias tape will end up covering the majority of the seams....

Mel-mousy
07-17-2010, 08:05 PM
I don't know much about sewing so I can't give any suggestions. xD What's bias tape do?

UchihaGirl
07-17-2010, 10:34 PM
Makes things pretty, lol. And drives me crazy.

It's fabric that is cut against the bias....like the fibers tend to run vertical and horizontal - bias is cutting diagonally, allowing for it to curve and stretch more, which is wonderful for curved pieces. It's great for hemming, or adding designs (like Martel's gold stripes that are all over the dress).

kikuyo
07-20-2010, 05:29 AM

My wig is so freakin ugly. it's worse than the ones on my cosplay.com photos. But I will try it anyways.

Also I have decided on a tentative next idea for a tales of cosplay. It's from tales of vesperia. And looks simple enough. I just need better reference shots for him so I can fully decide on it. Zagi!!!!

And even more news! The Rita I met at Megacon last year said her, yuri raven and another sheena will try to be there :D

Mel-mousy
07-20-2010, 06:25 PM
Gaku- Well, I'll be men all weekend. :C BUTSTILL. I shall hug you. And it shall be my new Facebook profile pic LOL; And you should go to Mizucon! We can be Guy replicas! oO; On Saturday, the photoshoot is immediately after the panel. OH and at Mizucon, Johnny Yong Bosch is gonna be there! ;D (Guy's VA.. And Emil's <3)

Kikuyo- I was asking because I have a few ideas for Emil/Ratatosk pics that I really wanna do with you~ ^^ AND OH GOD ZAGI he scares meee. YES. A YURI. I WILL GLOMP THEM TOO. ;3; <3

EEEEEE. yes I like the thought of that for a profile pic. \o/ Anyway... Yeah I just kinda forced all my friends into cosplaying Abyss people. xD And then a friend of mine (Luke) is coming from Colorado for Mizucon andyeah. I hope you can go! What part of Florida do you live in?

Mish LexiiCHU~

Mel-mousy
07-20-2010, 07:06 PM
Gah! Maybe in that case I should be Jade on Friday for the shoot and Emil all day Saturday. (So shoot too)

Awwww~!! ;A; That would have been AWESOME~! ;kratos-fangirlll;

Mel-mousy

And yeah. ;3; Ima have it for next year though for sure~ I'm a rabid Kratos fangirl. owo

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-20-2010, 08:43 PM
Awesome~~! I'm making Presea next yeear, so we should get a Symphonia group together or something~! > w<

Mel-mousy
07-20-2010, 08:46 PM
omg yes definitely~ <3 I have some friends willing to be Zelos (She's my Decus owo), Colette, Sheena, Raine or Martel, and Yuan too~ c8 My Lloyd lives in CO though. ;c BUTYES that'd be awesome omg

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-20-2010, 08:55 PM
Yaaay, sooo many people~~!!
and I'll get my sis to be Tabatha or Alicia..and maybe another friend as Genis~! <x ffff--- makes me excited for next year~!

Mel-mousy
07-20-2010, 08:57 PM
Ooh Tabatha~ <3 I love Tabatha's outfit hkahdka. And yesss! >w< I was gonna be Genis just because my Lloyd was making fun of my shortness and we're brohams. \o/ But I figured 2 Symphonia cosplays was enough already. xD excittteee

Mish LexiiCHU~
07-20-2010, 09:17 PM
Yusss~~! > w<
awwwh, a Genis who's actually short would be cute to see~! I saw one a few months ago..he had a huuuge growth spurt~ owo
But lol, if we can get together a group with most of the characters (or at least the whole party), omgwshhhh.....I'd DIE of happiness~! Q wQ *exciiitebiiike~~

kikuyo

Well with all the tales of fans we has, we could try to make a big group of all the main characters of one series. that would just be like omfg epic.

Mel-mousy
07-20-2010, 09:28 PM
Aw. xD Yeah I'm like.. 5'3'' now xD Ima midget Kratos. :'D Owell~ I have yet to see any Symphonia cosplayers about. ><; Seeing Taisa as Rita and this other girl as Patty at Supercon last month.. oh god you can just tell how excited I was if you heard me lol. "GDJAGDJASGJDAS OHMYGOD TALES PEOPLE :'D" ...yeah
Anywayy.. That'd be pretty awesome~ My Colette and Sheena may be leaving for Japan next year for a foreign exchange student program though.. ;3; I can definitely say that I'll have Kratos/Emil, Decus/probably Zelos, Raine or Martel.. and the person who I'm trying to get to be Yuan may end up being Sheena anyway. owo But that'd be better since we'd have the actual party~ o: I'm so excited now LOL; I love Symphonia and am gonna post this before I continue rambling about forcing Raine/Martel to be Raine for the party--oh whoops there I go. \o/

And Kikuyo, agreed! Let's try to do that for next year? o:

kikuyo
07-20-2010, 09:47 PM
OMG! WHy didn't I think of this?!?!?

With all the tales of cosplayers we'll have. We should do a tales of Vs kinda thing with the shoot a bit! It'd be so freakin epic. I mean yeah not all of our characters are in there.....freakin richter made the cut.....but then again emil is a pansy......anywho enough ranting. I think that'd be so freakin cool.

Mel-mousy
07-20-2010, 09:50 PM
EMIL CAN BE HIDING IN THE CORNER. \o/ I like that idea! We should do that! o:
btw Kikuyo, think you could be Emil for the Saturday shoot? >< Ima be Jade for Friday orz.

07-20-2010, 10:40 PM
Progress, yay! Still not close enough, but easy enough to finish, I think. I'm going to stitch the black part in place, then add the black hem on the bottom and bias tape, then add sleeves. Love the last minute rushes to finish!

Mel-mousy
08-07-2010, 02:58 PM
I personally won't be at Shadocon. Dx; My next con is Mizucon in Miami, then Chibi-Pa for a day in West Palm, and there's a little itty bitty chance of me going to EXPcon in St. Augustine. But no Shadocon. :C

Mish LexiiCHU~
08-07-2010, 05:55 PM
I didnt plan on it, but I'll think about bringing Arietta to Shado if there's going to be shoot~! ' D'

kikuyo
08-07-2010, 06:04 PM
Idk if there will be but since this thread doesnt say metrocon i figured we could have it for tales stuff too for shadocon. :D

Anywho I was thinking of maybe a tales of group? Like all from the same game if possible? xD
