March 4th weekend (not sure if it's a Saturday only or weekend event).

I'm definitely going to this one. Figure it's a nice way to celebrate my 20-ish birthday.

I shall be there! ^_^ Don't know what I'm going to cosplay as yet, but I'll have my new Karen Kasumi, Integral, My Wife, and Hanabi done by then.

Yep, it's on March 5-6 and you can find out all kinds of info at http://animeod.com

And 2 weeks later (the 20th) will be another RECCACon, so if you missed the last one, here's your chance to go ^^

See you at both !

So I should have my TV Aoki and Young Walter ready by then. Kimura is already done to compliment your "My Wife" (What IS her name?).

Don't expect Reni to be done by then though for Hanabi. I still have Kayama to compliment.

This is the Anime Overdose thread. Please do not confuse people about two separate events.

If needed, make another thread for Recca in March.

I have Anime Overdose confirmed, but not sure if I can go to Recca yet.

I'll be going, since originally I was planning to go to Megacon 2004 in Florida that weekend, but it really looks doubtful that I'll be able to make it.. So, I'll probably be going to AOD, as well as Reccacon-Spring 2 weeks later.

I'm hoping the weather will be good that weekend by the time AOD comes, so I may bring my RX-7 FC3S costume with me. :skidude2: I might also sell some stuff in the swap meet, but it's still early to decide if I will do that or not. But I'm sure it'll be a fun, 2-day event for the Bay Area until Cherry Blossom Festival (CBF) Parade and Fanime arrives. :D

PikminLink
12-02-2003, 03:33 PM
i dont know if ill be going to overdose...but im really going for recca, and the cherry blossom festival, and fanime^_~

so ill have to see, when is AOD, and recca?? they are in the same month right?

Michi
12-02-2003, 10:17 PM
AOD is March 5-6
Recca... I don't know. XD I haven't checked.

Reccacon-Spring (dunno if they plan to have a Reccacon-Fall in 2004 or not) is Saturday, March 20th. (saw it on their website) As I said, I'll be going to AOD and then Recca 2 weeks later. It'll be fun to see the same crowd and cosplayers (hopefully) within 2 weeks, so I wonder if the costumes at both events will be the same or different. :)

Hey, anyone going to this one? I heard of this at Recca-Con....

They were advertising this at the JTFA back in September, and they were looking for artists and such. I got a free table, and they;re going to be showing some of my redubs. Like CAPTAIN HARLOCK: INSEARCH OF A BETTER HAIRCUT, LUM in Shakesperian Verse, THE BUBBLEGUM CRISIS: ATTACK OF THE ARNOLD SCWARZENEGGER IMPERSONATORS and BORN TO KILL; THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (Audience Participation comming soon.)

Plus I will be showing cosplay tapes, and selling my cosplay zine, and my BEAST WARS POKEMON and a few other things

:jjacks: :bigtu: And I'll be bringing a new costume. BRAINMASTER STAR SABER (Or Saber as he's known in that mode.) If I get lucky, I'll even bring Jan. :untrust: This is my most complicated TRANSFORMER costume ever.

*perks up* What about Rocky Horror? o.o

It's my parody. In my first one:"The BUBBLEGUM CRISIS, ATTACK OF THE ARNOLD SCHWRZENEGGER IMPERSONATORS" I established that the Genom corporation is trying to take over the entire bubblegum industry with the help of the Arnold Scwarzenegger fan club who have turned themselves in to Terminator replicas.

But in the second one,"BGC2: BORN TO KILL THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW" The #2 guy is once again tryinhg to gain controle of the Bubblegum industry with the help of a millitant branch of the ROCKY HORROR FAN CLUB.

I did it this wya, because at the end, there are several lady Boomers that look like Columbia and the other girl.

I do have one with an Audience participation track, but it never ogt edited together.

I did all my redubs with my first camer's audio editing feature, but I wore out the gears in it, and that was the last one I did.

I have three others to edit, but no way of editing them. I got a video editor, but no way of inputting the video or audio I need.

:waaaah: I need better equipment. :waaaah:

Yuichi will be a CPA (Certified Pain in the Ass) to cosplay since what he wears cannot be re-worn for anyone else I do plan to cosplay for AOD. Going to scout the distance between the car and the con as well as finding places to change.

Friday:

-Maybe Seishiro Sakurazuka or Aoki

Saturday:
-Maybe Yuichi
-Maybe Lupin
-Kimura Sensei
-Backup costumes in case I say to hell with Yuichi and Lupin

More like: we're die hard Sakura Taisen fans and it's so rare to be able see the seiyuu here in the U.S. (except for Maya), so we want to show up and support.

It's hard to find people who actually recognize the more obscure ST costumes and anyone who knows ST knows how much it would rock to have a Shonen Red group for Kouran's seiyuu. =)

Mr./Ms. Link, (I've made mistakes before)
You either attend a con, or you don't attend a con. If you really want to attend a con, it'll be more productive to make an effort to get there than complain. And pretty please do not insult the mods.

Back on topic: I am really looking forward to this. Costume list finalized. Payment received. Just a little curious about how to register for Masquerade.

and ZiggyB wasn't trying to be a jerk, he was stating a fact that you do seem to have a habbit of going around and complaining about cons you can't go to because they're always in popular areas. He must be annoyed by it as am I. There's always solutions like planning & working out things to be able to attend or maybe just stop being lazy and try to see if you can bring about your own con with a group like how ReccaCon came to be.
Not everything has to be negative.

Hey everyone! You might wanna check out the Anime OD website again. They've announced a couple of things.

If anyone is interested, they are having a guest reception to meet and greet all of the guests.

http://www.animeod.com/reception.mv

There is a extra $20 fee and it's semi-formal (no costumes) but it sounds fun! :)

They are also extending the pre-registration and allowing Paypal now. It's now $14 instead of $13 a few days ago. :)

I hate to double post, but I didn't feel like merging these posts together. Anyway, now for some official business.

OoTLink: You should heed the words of K_Valentine and Hildechan. If your opinion of me has changed before, they are going to be downright nasty after this.

I was being nice, suggesting that you stop complaining in the anime convention threads. However, this is now an official warning. Not only did I warn you to stop complaining, but I also specifically said that there will be no more off-topic posts in this thread. Your last post violates both of those warnings.

If I see you post another complaint in an anime convention thread, an off topic post or *anything* that breaks the rules or distrupts this forum, I will permanently ban you, and that includes both of your usernames and any future usernames that you choose. A note to the other mods will also be made, so if they see you do something wrong, they will ban you.

A copy of this post will be Private Messaged to you as well to make sure you don't miss it.

Now, back to business. I hope to see everyone there at AnimeOD and hopefully some of you can make it to the guest reception as well. :)

I saw this in the scheduel they put up. But I thought it was gong to be on campus. Damn, another place to drive... I just hope that my car can stand it...

And why is it that I seem to be going to places named after locations I live at, this year. I live in Willows, California. I was invited to an annaverasrry at: "The Wind in the WIllows" hotel. My family went to dinner at "The Wollow Tree Restraunt", I had to go to "The Willows Weeping" bookstore to get a book for my cousin's kid

Well, if this is an award for Carl Macek, I won't be bringing Tommy boy with me. But if this was Rodger Coreman, you would see me with a few others.

Ah well... Still sounds like more fun than I'm having right now (Puts syanide tablets aside and rests knife blade down away from him...)

Raven, who is going to be there with me, takes BART to Freemont, then a bus to somewhere near, and the a cab the rest of the way. (Or, atleast that's what she does when she goes to BayCon or Fanime.) You might want to check out that way.

It looks like I'll be going, but not cosplaying as much, and here's why: Since my brother and I will be moving back into our old house in April, we're going to be selling a LOT of stuff at the SWAP-MEET on both days, so if you could help us out by buying stuff, that would be really appreciated. I'm not sure what my bro is selling, but I'll be selling a lot of anime-related goods (some manga, TONS of English-manga comic books, CD's, pencilboards, artbooks, etc.) and some videogames, like RPG's.. (FF7 to X, Suikoden 3, and more) I can't say what prices they will be, so you'll have to come to my table and find out.. BUT they will be great deals!! :D But my brother will be watching the table from time-to-time, so I'll be able to walk around and get pics of cosplayers. Of course, if you all visit me in costume, that'll work also. ;)

I know the website mentioned that the first table is free, and if you make a donation you can get additional table(s). But to sign up, it's first-come, first-serve that Saturday morning? (or Friday night?) Anyone with any info on how to contact the AOD staff regarding the swap-meet would be appreciated. :)

Alright, finally decided on costume schedule:

Friday:
Seiichiro Aoki (X/1999)
Birthday Suit (Not what it sounds like)

Saturday:
Yuichi Kayama (Sakura Taisen)
Kimura-sensei (Azumanga Daioh)
Seishiro Sakurazuka (X/1999)
Agent Smith (Matrix Trilogy)
Crazy 88 (Kill Bill) Possible

Nadeshiko and I are definitely not doing the Pizza thing, costume or plain clothes (though Aoki would be plain clothes and semi casual enough). I'll still be in class during it anyway.

There giving the deal to the anime club at SJSU and possibly us. I'll find out next wensday.

I got one at a Howard Johnson's less than 2 miles from it. It's only $50 a night (Not without tax) Anyone wants that info, let me know, and I'll give it to you, and if needbe, I can give whomever a ride from there to the campus. (Maybe.)

I have the link and info for people that want to try and spend nine to get in,

http://www.animeod.com/register/clubs.mv

Be sure to List "Tsunami Anime" for the club section of the form if
you do register.

Now if it doesn't work, than it was just for the club I know and go to.

SpookyElectric
02-21-2004, 12:51 AM
Um...the clubs page is for group discount, ideally registering multiple people at once. i.e. Cal Animage, SJSU's Tsunami, etc. Maybe cosplay.com could count as a club or something, you'd have to E-Mail the director or assistant director.

With regard to getting there, if you don't know, Caltrain doesn't run on weekends. At least not for now. So on Saturday you can't take Caltrain to the Santa Clara Caltrain Station. However, there is a bus running between some, but not all stops. It's called the RRX, and you can get schedule details at http://ww.caltrain.com/
Since SC Caltrain is not one of the stops, so your best bet is probably to goto the San Jose Caltrain station. Across the street from the SJ caltrain station, in front of the San Jose Area, is the stop for the #22 northbound/towards palo alto bus. You can take the #22 bus from there to the Santa Clara Caltrain station (which is across the street from the campus).
That's only saturday that you need to more round-about route. Friday you can take Caltrain as usual.

SohjiroX
02-21-2004, 04:09 AM

That's odd.. Pre-registration necessary for masquerade? Bleh. Well, most cons don't include one day passes in pre-reg since that's always a low fee. Does AOD have anything on the site about one day passes? *lazy and at school, can't really open a bunch of windows right now @__@*

02-26-2004, 05:40 PM
Well Friday looks very sparse with only programming for 3 hours (6-9pm) the last time I looked. I think it's mostly opening ceremonies, I'll have to look at the schedule again. So I'm not even counting that as a day. :)

And yes, Pre-reg is necessary for the masq, at least that's what the web site says. You only need one person pre-regged to register. The rest of the group can reg at the door.

A couple things I should mention: When making your reservation for your hotel, make sure there are no hidden costs. Last week when I was at APE, when I checked in, I had to deposit $75 for my room, for smoking. I don't smoke, but I had to . And they never mentioned it when I made the reservation. I had to call hime to get that into my account.

Next, for anyone interested, I am going to be showing some cosplay videos, and some old masquerade videos at my table. Including some stuff from Comic-Con and WorldCon. Not to mention my music videos an my redubs that will not be shown there. And the trailer from my favorite movie: THE WIZARD OF SPEED AND TIME

And I will also be horsetrading my extra Yugioh cards (If they will let me(Got about 200-300 I need to get rid of.)) Not to mention the stuff I will usually be selling.

See you guys at the pizza party.

KimikoChan
02-27-2004, 01:37 AM
Yeah, it's the same price for one day, because Friday doesn't really *count* as a full day per se. It's basically just some extra things and they want to kind of have it as a "bonus". So you are really only paying for Saturday.

I'm working the con, and out of it, so I won't be cosplaying, but I hope to be in full swing by RECCA. See you all in a few :)

Looks like I'll be there earrrly on Friday, since I'm going to be giving the Cosplay OD opening-act, Maiyu, a ride to the con. We should be there around 1pm, since she is planning to attend the Carl Macek reception at 2pm. I don't think I'll be attending that, so either I'll stick around to see if anyone will be there that early, OR else I'll go take a drive to the San Jose convention center to scope out the site for Fanime in May. :)

See everyone who's going on Friday.. just 4 days to go!

Well, it sounds like this is going to be a jam packed event, for a first con. I just wish I could be int he Yugioh tournament. But, I's gots a table to run. But, I will be bringing my three decks I've been working on. They're not perfect, and can still be upset by some of the cards from the MFC and Dark Crisis packs. But, they still pack quite whollup if I get the right cards off hand.

And, I was thinking bout bringing my collection, but since my car is not that secure, I don't trust security. I have some prety valuable cards.

And Eurobeat King, I was there for ConJose, the San Jose Convention Center. Great place. Nice and roomy. The major complaint is: The main hotel is about four blocks away from the convention Center. But, it's close to the freeway. And parking is boque bucks, cheapest is like 6 blocks away.

See you all there, and I will have pictures from Fanime for all to see.

Hehe.. just finished my costume today. I wonder why we're all such procrastinators >__>

:untrust: Well, for me, it was a matter of getting the peices in the house and getting the time to finish them. I had all the major peices done, accept for straps to hold them together. And looking for some, they needed to be smoothed out, which I couldn't do :eeek: well enough. But, I do look lite i've been in a battle :juggler: Plus my limited job, managing with my brother's problems, having my cousin come over plus APE and trying to finish more things than I really have time for. :crylaugh: Now I find out that I still have one or two components left to make for it, which I will not have time or paint for. :waaaah: Just won't look 100%. Still be impressive. And I can finish some of the minor details down there.

If anyone is interested, and is staying at the Howard Johnsons on Camino Real, feel free to find me for a midnight video party. I always bring tapes, and I'll bring some of my MST tapes.

Hotel Reservations......check
Con Pre Reg.......check
Ok with parents.....check
Transportation......check

All thats left is to finish my costumes. Looks like Im going to be Shampoo friday (or something equally as easy), Himeno (eek I think thats her name! its a new anime!) from Pretear Saturday (her outfit when she preets with Hayate to anyone who watches this totally awesome series!) and Psychic Paine from FFX-2 for the masqurade. LOL doesnt it always seem to be the costumes that are the last to get done?

Oh and I have to get over this mega cold I have. If Im not better by friday Im going to pretend Im not sick and drug myself up REAL good. But Im so mega excited about this con....for such a small one it looks really fun!

Is anything happening on Sunday at all? Should we maybe all go out to breakfast? Or something like that......

right now, I am wishing that the con was a week later for two reasons:

1: Money and I have to get some registration done on my car
2: Paint is not drying fast enough. (Never use anything but Krylon...)

And dealing with my family on things that they know nothing about: Exhausting.

Hey everyone, the last day to register for the guest reception is today at 1am. (Thursday March 3rd at 1am). The notice on the site says that there will be no at-door registration for the guest reception.

So for those of you still thinking about it, you might wanna decide soon. :)

I'll see everyone there at the con this weekend! :)

My friend and singer Maiyu will be getting there on Thursday, so I won't have to give her a ride on Friday, which means I'll probably get there around 2-3pm on Friday. (That gives me a little chance to sleep in and finish packing my stuff to sell on Saturday.)

Anybody know where the swap-meet is going to be held? I know that there's the Exhibit Hall (Willamen Room), and then there's the Adventure-Alley (Bensom Room), but where is the swap-meet? The schedule of events doesn't mention it, and according to Maiyu there are tables for con-attendees to sell their stuff at both places.. If anyone has any info regarding it, that would be appreciated, else I'll find out come Friday!

Friday I'll be taking pics of whoever is cosplaying (pictures from Friday afternoon/evening should go up that night), and Saturday I'll do my best to get photos while selling stuff at the swap-meet/Adventure Alley, so please stop by so I can take your pictures, and check out the cool anime/video-game/manga stuff at my tables! :) See you in 2 days!

Good question. We don't know either. We do know it will be Saturday afternoon, before the cosplay event. Maybe taking over the dealer's room after it closes, maybe using where the dance will be, maybe outside (assuming good eather) it still isn't certain. Hopefully we'll know by friday, and check for signs around registration and maybe con-ops for updates.

Have fun, everyone!

I have felt the stress too this week. WHile I have never had a girlfriend in my life, I just have one thing to say: Never do business with relatives. Especially a brother who uses your account for emails and ebay, and can't keep up with shipping. YOU get the brunt of those angry people who want to know why they haven't gotten their stuff. (Been like this for the last week or two. ) :waaaah: Plus now I find out I have to register the car I am going to use.

I either need a better job, or a new family.

But, I have been working feverishly to get my costume done. And it is 75%. Good enough for presentation, and shoule be a sight. If nothing falls off. Still needs a lot of detailing, which I hope to do.

And I have an 8 hour tape I made of my music videos, redubs, stop motion and computer graphics, music videos, and cosplay videos from japan.

I did a lot, and I am going to show a lot.

Thanks guys *tear* Nothing cheers me up like a good con. I was confused about the swap meet too but I think Im going to skip it...well we shall see. Im getting in uber late today (its four hours away and I cant leave until 4 or so) so we shall see if I even get to cosplay today!

SohjiroX
03-05-2004, 02:47 PM
guess me and my room mate wont be able to make it, we have little funds to get there and afford the con and such. and knowing how everyone is busy and how I cant get ahold of most of my con friends, its a lost cause. Well i'll either see all of you at recca or fanime, ja.

Eurobeat King
03-05-2004, 03:07 PM
Michi & Sohjiro: Sorry to hear that you can't make it.. Hopefully I'll see you two at either Reccacon or else, the Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in April.

Mink: Sorry to hear about your bad, recent events. *hug* Hopefully you can cosplay today so I can take your picture. Please say Hi to me if you see me later on today, if I don't recognize you. :)


*whew!* Finished finding, sorting, labeling/pricing, boxing, and making check-lists of what I have to sell tomorrow (Saturday), and I think I'm all set. I talked with Maiyu, and from what she told me, the swap-meet will be held outside (I think outside the Benson Center) while the dealers' room will be indoors as well as Adventure Alley. She didn't mention the time for when the swap meet starts, tho.. I have a table inside the Adventure Alley, and if you check out the map on the website, you'll see it labelled there. :) Please come by to say hello and check out what I have!!

I'll be there today around 2-2:30pm or so. Hopefully I'll see some of you there on during the afternoon/evening!! :skidude2:

*Whew!* Got home, reallly tired after a fun-filled day at Anime Overdose! :) Pretty good for a 1.5 day con, and it's good not having to stress out at a big con like Katsucon 3 weeks ago. Thanks to the chair of AOD, Rob, for providing me a table in the Adventure Alley (and Masako for asking on my behalf) to sell my anime & video-game goods, as well as promote cosplay.com. I made some good $$ to help me with my move in April/May, and so I thank everyone who stopped by the table and bought something for me. Hope you enjoy your purchase(s) :) As for pictures, since I was mainly at the table for most of the day, I was at the far end of the Adventure Alley, but did manage to take a breather and get pictures. So I missed some cosplayers, and apologize if when the pictures get posted that I didn't get your picture. After putting the stuff back in the car after closing up the table, I went back into camera-man mode and got a lot of good pictures of cosplayers performing in the masquerade. Loved Maiyu's debut and performances, and I can't wait to see you again in concert in 2 weeks, Masako!! ;)

Reccacon in 2 weeks I'll be there, and probably NOT have a table for the swap-meet, but be alongside (and also in the opposite direction) of Admin, taking more pictures indoors & outdoors. Hopefully the turn-out will be good as it was to AOD. :)

Thanks again to the staff for pulling off a fun time at AOD, to all my friends & cosplayers that I haven't seen since Animagic/Yaoicon, and new friends that I made that I look forward to seeing again at Reccacon, where we'll do it ALL over again in 2 short weeks! See you there!! :skidude2:

Pictures should start going up tomorrow (Sunday) once Admin puts up the section for Anime Overdose 2004 in my gallery, so I appreciate your patience as they go up..

Well, that was more or less better than spending time at home.
Let me run a checklist on what I did:
1:Go to a Con
2:Cosplay
3:See some good friends of mine
4:Enter the contest
5:Bought Suikoden 3 (Thanks Eurobeat King!)
6:Had a lot of fun.

and the best thing, I GOT TO PROMOTE DARK MAGIC PRODUCTIONS!! XD

Well, either way, I had fun none the less, and I hope to see everyone again at Recca Con. I know I'll be there(due to the fact that it's just 10 minutes away from me, lol) :bigtu:

Woo, its been over a week since I have even touched a computer last (working on costumes day and night). AOD was so much fun! Driving the hour-ish trip was a bitch, but that's okay. Car discussions about Chicago and other things was so much fun.

It was so good seeing people there, and I had soooo much fun. I just wish that I COULD attend the TM Revolution concert =( Anyone wanna buy some tix?

I guess I really did OD on fun this weekend. Just started on Disgaea and Project Justice.

Thanks for everyone who stopped over at my birthday area. We were almost able to scare off those non-cosplaying normal people there (at least we got rid of most).

Dinner at Denny's proved to be interesting.

Now y'all know how I cosplay so much.

Back to work and see ya at Recca-Con.

FallenMagician: Hope you enjoy Suiko3, and get used to a lot of "head-tilting" in that game by the characters.. hehe

K_Val: Hope you like the games you bought from me. Sad for me to part with Disgaea, but "DUDE!!" until I get a new PS-2 (my younger bro took it when he moved out..) I will have to survive with my Gamecube and X-box, but then again, with cons & online taking most of my time, I don't have time to play even those.. :thumbsup: If I brought my Gamecube to AOD to sell, would anyone have bought it.. hmm? hehe But with "MGS: Twin Snakes" coming out this week, I think I'll hold onto it.. ;)

LuckinSpades: Congrats on your win at AOD for your Trigun skit. *clap clap* I'm sure you'll easily find someone who'll want your PMX tickets, so easy luck in passing those off.

We had a great time!!! A smooth, relatively short 3 hour drive, wonderful weather, and a lot of fun dressing up and shopping for treasures in the dealer's room. I think we all spent too much money on all those goodies, but it was well worth it!!! The best part was when our little group's Inuyasha climbed up a tree to pick me an orange, hehe.

Nadeshiko
03-07-2004, 06:34 PM
Ah, it was well worth it! ^^ SCU is prettier than my campus.

It was nice seeing everyone again. Thanks to everyone who showed up for the small birthday celebration on Saturday afternoon! Next year, let's scare off more people and pigeons.

Oh, for the record, I was Tommy February and Princess Mars on Fri and Karen Kasumi, Seasons Ayumi, and My Wife on Sat. The masquerade was tons of fun. I think that was the best open mic thing I've ever seen, or at least the only one I was able to stay awake for. (For the record, I was the chick who did "Hey Big Spender"). Congrats to Masako-okasa for making her debut! *huggle* ^^v (psst...I have clips of her earlier work...shhh...)

Anyways, it was a good con, despite a few scary fanboys (what con doesn't have them?). ^^; Wish I could have stayed longer for the dance (was it any good?), but did some after con Denny's midnight run with the brat pack.

Yay for freebies!

Fix a flat didn't work on that tire, stupid thing... and yeah I had a lot of people pointing out the stupid obvious thing "do you know you're driving on a flat?" and I wanted to say back "do you know with fix a flat you have to drive on it for a bit to ensure it works?" but unfortunately it got very bad and didn't work ;_; I won't be at recca I think so see you all at CBF hopefully I'll have something new for that ^_^

Yeay! AOD was a lot of fun! I'm so glad that it went so well, and that people had a great time. It was awesome to see everyone again! Although, Ziggy-san, didn't get to see you much... and Moo-san and PositiveSpace-san and AJ-san as well.... You guys rushed by in a flurry of shiny glory! I hope your performance went well!
I saw you, YuffieK-san! You did a great job on your costume! Did you have fun for your first con? ^_^
AOD was quality hanging out time! ^_^

It was great seeing everyone again, the con was really fun, despite the lack of signs clashing with my navigationally challenged brain. "Hey, let's follow that Ryoga! I'll be he knows where he's going!"

positivespace - Wow. I think it's the glasses and red red lipstick that threw people off. (At least Luck and I...)

Usagi: I totally forgot that you're Usagi...even I was SO BLIND from noticing that on your sn o____0 Blaaah!!! I feel bad!!!! *stabs herself with stick*...dammit, it's not sharp! ;x And yes! Must raid more 24-hour restaurants and steal perfectly edible leftovers! ;D
K_Valentine: Actually, my stomach ddin't gave off this tingling feeling that I usually got from the first 2 Inui-drinks we made before o___0. I think it was that special hot sauce the host gave us <;D or....IT ACTUALLY IMPROVED!!! <;o Someone needs to write down the exact ingredients and the measurements!!!! ;o
Umi: Yaaay! Nice pictures! ;D
Hahaa no need to poke yourself.... it happens!! :D

Dude, and the thing that surprised me the most was you actually kept on drinking it. :drink: Major props for that.

Umi: I saw your pics!!! Love them.... I look funny without glasses. I guess it's cuz I'm not use it. :D I have a couple of you... I need to post them quick....

LuckInSpades: Congrats on winning! :D Ok, I gotta know, why the heck is that cross so heavy? :)

Thanks, again to Ziggy and Umi ^,^;; *blushes each time*

Alright, the cross is about 100 lbs because it is made out of wood. It was made out of the thick wood because in the middle, Rem designed a mechanism that would be able to shoot donut holes from it. However, by the time he got everything done, it was way too late to practice. See, we were going to have him shoot a donut hole for me to catch in my mouth, but we didn't have time, and it would have been way hard for him to aim it. Poor thing =(

Hell yeah, I had fun at Anime Overdose, I bought some cool stuff there, I took some pictures of the people cosplaying, and then I went to the video game tournament and watch my friends play super smash bros. melee, I did see your name in the tournament YuffieK, and then I sign up for Soul Calibur II, and lost in my first round as Mitsurugi, plus the other guy was using Mitsurugi too. The dance was alright I saw one of my friends dancing crazy lol. But overall I did had fun, and can't wait until Fanime 2004 to start. Cause that's where I'm going to be cosplaying. See you guys in Fanime 2004.

Hey, I've been on the phone for two hours with customer *support*, trying to
fix the sudden restriction on the web site - and after I spent the night doing AOD photos, too.

But..... since Mink has been having a hard time lately (although she looked pretty happy at the con); here's your photos first.

Everyone else - I'll be fighting tomorrow, with more techs. My storage space
suddenly dropped by 2 decimal points, and it won't even let me upload the html page for AOD, even if I delete 100 times the size of the file. (Insert unseemly language here.) ((lots of it.))

*Whew!* I finished posting ALL of my pics, (500 in 2 days) and am pleased with the turn-out. I found it interesting how during the day-time I was busy selling my anime goods at my table, thus keeping me there and missing cosplayer pictures, but I did have some time to wander around and nab pics while Tom & Alma kept an eye on the table. BUT.. once I finished putting everything back in the car, I slapped on my black Metreon jacket (I looked like a DEA-agent.. hehe) and went into full-cameraman mode, getting pictures of cosplayers (and Maiyu) before, during, and after the masquerade. :skidude2: And afterwards came the cool-@$$ lighting-effects shots at the rave, and then the farewell-pics to close AnimeOverdose 2004!

Hope everyone likes the pictures, and I love the comments so far that you've posted, so please keep them up!! I'll see everyone who's going to Reccacon in 2 weeks, where I'll be taking pictures ALL day & night, so perhaps I can DOUBLE the # of pics I took at AOD at that 1-day con also.. heehee we'll see.. Enjoy!! ;)
