Hey X fans out there...I hereby propose a group....of you guessed it..my personal favorite band from the land of the Rising Sun; X.

Now if we get some people on board, it'd be good...but we'd need people doing everyone, ie: Yoshiki, hide, Toshi, Pata, Taiji and Heath.

Now don't say that X doesn't wear costumes...look at their earlier concerts when they still had the big hair....maybe they're not as extravagant as Le Ciel Mana, but hell...it's still JRock!

There've been a couple of X groups i've seen in the past..and maybe a Yoshiki and a bunch of solo career hide's...but I'd like to see everyone in one place! One thing i challenge you with is to do Yoshiki's hair! Look at this pic! http://www.vizualshock.com/x-blue blood.jpg

Anyway...I'd like to know if anyone is interested...post here!
The earliest con this would be for is Katsucon.

haha! that'd be cool :)
I just gotta figure out what old school hide costume i want to do. I was thinking doing one where he's in a Marine Corps uniform with the big hair (I think this is actually his solo career..circa 1994...but he was still in X then.
I need some full body shots tho... I only have a bust/head shot from a little insert that came with the Junk Story cd.

Hrm...any full body shots of hiide with a relatively simple costume...I know i couldn't make those neon green or red vinyl suits he wore for Dahlia Final or the Last Live..that's like impossible..well for me anyway. (I have zero skillz)
anyhoo..any full body pics you could contribute from ~1989-1994 would be cool for references :)
I've done short hair hide..now i need to do long hair

I'd love to do Yoshiki but I gotta find the time first. ::Giggle.:: u.u;

Well first off...my boyfriend is the world's largest Pata fanatic, and I'd personally like to do Taiji or Heath...depending on what era you finally plan on. I'd personally love to join you, it's so weird that ther's such a low amount of X/ X japan cosplayers, ne?

lol I luff the early X stuff. -clings to it-

I get to be hide with Soshi as Toshi. ^^

"...depending on what era you decide on."

I think that X at anytime would be great..from thier big hair days when Blue Blood and Jealousy came out all the way through until when they broke up. Long hair'd hide, short hair'd hide, etc... :cool:

Yeah I'm surprised there arn't more people wanting to do X costumes..but i guess Malice Mizer and the gothic lolita stuff is more appealing, along with Dir en grey, Due le quartz, etc...with all the black leather n' stuff. :devil: I just like X better. :)

soshi

I think it's because not many people are familiar with X - only X Japan. most everyone knows who hide and Yoshiki are, but when you say Taiji they go blank.

Nabeshin
10-28-2002, 02:49 PM
Ah..yes I see your point.

People should do a little research instead of just looking at newer stuff :D
Taiji was a better bass player than Heath anyway. More atuned to Visual-kei too.

lemoned
10-28-2002, 04:21 PM
jea.. A lot of people only know stuff from like.. dahlia era. O_o;

I personally like X better. ^^;;;;;;

but yeah.. -clings to Taiji- ^^;; -wanders off-

LaylaCinder
11-03-2002, 02:38 PM
^^; No no no.. it's just that most people think that X/ X-japan was a band comprised of... "hide...and...uh....yoshiki"
Pht, a vocalist? I should think not! No bass player either. It's the same way in relation to Spread Beaver, and also.. god forbid anyone should -ever- meantion Pata.

lemoned
11-04-2002, 11:51 AM
what about spread beaver? O_o; hide wasn't exactly in spread beaver.. they were a a back up band that he molested ^^;;;; hide WITH Spread Beaver.

I think it's just the american fans who think that it's just hide and yoshiki because if you look at concerts from both of those bands, you'll see that there is at least a gazillion fans for every member of the band.

Nabeshin
11-04-2002, 12:21 PM
Spread Beaver and Zilch are bands he wrote songs for and sang for to promote them so they could eventually go out on thier own. He did this throo LEMONed, his production company...but you prolly already knew that...and Zilch tried the whole without hide thing after he died and failed miserably ...or so I've heard.

Yeah American fans kinda latch on to the most popular members and forget about the others.
THough I see your point about Spread Beaver..because you had Chirolyn and INA..etc... in there. and INA used to be with hide when Saver Tiger was around :)

god I'm a dork :rolleyes:

LaylaCinder
11-04-2002, 12:22 PM
Well, I was commenting -just- on american fans. What I meant by SB was that just see how many people can name all the members out of people that claim to like hide. :o Few and far between...then narrow it down to those who are actual fans of the said support musicians. That's what I was talking about ^_^; not refference to japanese fans/ "hide with spread beaver" at all.

Nabeshin
11-04-2002, 12:26 PM
heh ok! back to cosplay! ;)

lemoned
11-04-2002, 12:38 PM
yes.. hooray for cosplay. xD

soshi
11-04-2002, 12:49 PM
name them all?

Kiyoshi, Joe, Chirolyn, I.N.A., D.I.E., Black Rose Pata and then when he had to leave, Kaz joined, and he's in most of the pvs instead of Pata, even if Pata was in the band when the songs were made, because they didn't make the pvs until later.. *rambles*

I *LOVE* Spread Beaver. hide's music, pvs, and esp his TOUR wouldn't have been the same without him. nothing brings me more joy than the Ugly Pink Machine files, and it's because of those men and their utter insanity. XD;;;

ask most anyone I know, I'm the biggest INA fangirl there is. ^^;;;

I dunno, I can't say "if you're a real hide fan, you'll know who his backup bands are" because being a hide fan can be just of his music. I like Plastic Tree, but I have NO IDEA who the band members are, I just like their music. but, if people are going to claim to love hide and love Yoshiki and blah blah blah fangirl wai blah blah blah, then yeah, I think they should go check out everyone...

besides, X wise, NOTHING is cooler than trailer-trash-Taiji-san pouring beer on the audience while the security chases him XD;;;; and hide w/ SB-wise, there's just so much amusement of Pata running around with a big inflatable hammer, and Chirolyn in drag, and hide embarassing the hell out of everyone with fun childhood videos... XD;;;

soshi
11-04-2002, 12:51 PM
oh and COSPLAY! XD!

I get to be I.N.A. ^_______^ I think I am going to be Pink Spider INA and random tour INA... because... I can. XD and I am going to lug around a beat mania pad thing, because it looks like the little keyboard INA has in the Rocket Dive pv. *^^*

I ALSO GET TO BE TOSHI! GAH! THE HAIR, MAN, THE HAAAAAIR! XD

As for cosplay... doing X era Taiji(scoff ::will be a horrible Taiji::) cosplay at Animazement, anyone else going? ^_^ Also, at Otakon I'll be doing Kiyoshi in a little group of hide, kiyoshi , pata, and Chirolyn in drag from "lemoned I scream" ^^; the -only- way to get a Chirolyn..and my boyfriend will be doing Electric Cucumber hide; he'll also be doing Pata at Katsu. Omigod? INA?! When!?! I want pictures!

soshi
11-04-2002, 03:42 PM
I'm doing INA whenever Lemoned is doing hide. ^^;; but I'll post pictures of me at home as INA as soon as I order my dreds. *^^*

we're trying to get someone we know to be shirtless Chiro in big poofy pants of doom >D

lemoned
11-04-2002, 04:32 PM
-molests INA- XD

-sticks on the head phones again and grabs this clib board- lol I am the cosplay organizer from hell. :X

bANgz WILL be Chirolyn. even if I have to slip something in his drink and drag around a passed out Chiro. :x .....I kinda wanna run around as chiro too.. ._.;; curse my boobies!

Nabeshin

I still need to find me another do-able hide costume :rolleyes:

hopefully i'll be able to get some stuff done over xmas break since i'm choosing not to work :D

gotta get ready for katsu...

There won't be any X cosplay in my future for Katsucon, but
on Saturday, after 12 and before the cosplay, I'll be wearing Seek from Phsyco le Cemu because my friends are doing a minigroup. Just the school outfits, though. I have way too many other outfits (7) to shove in ._.

Nabeshin
11-05-2002, 02:22 PM
Man..planning costume times early arn't we? :p

LaylaCinder
11-05-2002, 09:44 PM
^^;..I already have all my Otakon costumes planned too. It's mainly because I have different people wanting me to do different things, if I don't set something in stone this early, I won't get to do what I want as well.

i am still hoping that someone will be able to do their huge hair days. i've only see one cosplayer pull off the whole thing, with it sticking like a foot above their head. it rocks.

and i think that people prefer other stuff because xjapan isn't as "pretty" sorta sad considering how much they rock. they used to be glam death metal and then they sorta calmed down.

the thing that i love most about xjapan is how they do the most beautiful ballads and also some of the best "anger" songs. ^__^

X did have terrible fashion back in the day, but.. I mean.. 80's glam. Nuff said. ^^;

I have this habit of planning costumes early... and then rushing them off a couple weeks before the con I wanted to wear them to. :/

*pounces*mou....isn't it Daishi now w/ your widdle soccer ball? *pulls out a mirror and powder puff and starts patting face delicately*

X cosplay will happen, heck my sis and I along w/ her at the time bf had Toshi, Yoshiki and hide. ^_^ Chirolyn is da bomb though, that boi is like on crack. XD

LaylaCinder
11-30-2002, 03:28 PM
Not only is he on crack, but he has a nice singing voice too. :x
I still can't believe how I got thrown from seek to Daishi oh well x.x.
Hey, I'll do Taiji if you want ever. Are you and your sister still considering dressing Ken up as Toshi for katsu? He's very interested in that.

we can if he so desires. ^_~ we have the wig and make-up he'd just need to supply the leather.

well when our cosplay books open up will plan an X Japan group and you'll def. be our Taiji. ^_^

LaylaCinder
12-02-2002, 12:27 PM
Ken would love to be Toshi... :o I mean, if he was allowed to run around screaming "We are...we are... we are..." "You are... you are...you are" x.x; which he would...trust me...he would. He already has the leather, so I think it would be good :x good for him to jump around briskly...I'll even supply him with a little mic.

XD Last time ken did karaoke...he did Silent jealousy and he was all crying..just picture him as that, as Toshi. So be on the lookout for some random japanese guy cosplaying Toshi then, all you X people. o.o;

I have a guy I know that might be willing to do Yoshiki with his shorter hair (nose/lip length) with the lace-up leather pants. :japan:
