View Full Version : Thursday Pre-con Photoshoots 5/13/04

Hey everyone,

I haven't bought my airline tickets yet, but I'm shooting for arriving to Anime Central around 1pm on Thursday, the day before the convention starts, mainly to settle in, hang out with friends, and take photoshoots. The past couple of years when the convention has been at the wonderful Hyatt hotel (since 2002) I've always arrived there Friday morning, but this year will be different, and I plan to get there a day early. :) So after I get settled in, I'll be wandering around the hotel in the afternoon/evening, looking for cosplayers to take pictures of. (These will be INDIVIDUAL costume-pictures, and NOT a big photoshoot group, which will be on Saturday, 5/15, time & place: TBD) I'll be joining up with Admin & Aeris later, and then getting some rest before the big weekend starts..

So I'm making this thread to see who plans to be there on Thursday, and who plans to cosplay. (Richieed may wear her Asuka dress, and wants me to cosplay as Shinji with her, so I may cosplay as Shinji-boy during that time..) I'll be taking photos throughout the afternoon/evening, so if you have multiple costumes that you want to have pictures taken of, feel free to change into them and then come find me. Since you took the time to change, it's only fair that I get a few pictures. :)

See you at Anime Central in 2 months! :skidude2:

So I'm making this thread to see who plans to be there on Thursday, and who plans to cosplay.

I'm damn sure that I'll cosplay on pre-con Thursday. Even though I'm in the ACen staff, I have to see the WTF? facial reaction of Shinichi Watanabe when I cosplay as himself as Nabeshin.

*waves* I'm going to be there sometime Thursday to get past the pre-reg lines if they open up the day before again. If you'll be taking photos, I may haul out my Rinoa costume a day early! ^-^ It's looking so beautiful and very accurate, and I'd like a few special shots since my massive Friday group may overwhelm the oppurtunity to get a few images by myself. I'll repost later once I know for sure. What a great, cute idea!

I'll be there Thursday around 5pm or 6pm... I won't be cosplaying but I'm thinking of having a photo shoot with the ACen Guys (my posse) because my 3 fans demand it! lol

RedPikachu
03-13-2004, 08:40 AM
if this is for sure, then yes. i'll be there ^_^

Eurobeat King

RedPikachu: I've already got the time off for that Thursday, and Lionel already extended our room for Thursday, so the only thing left is to secure airline tickets so that I arrive around 1:00pm. So it's 95% fersure going to happen, just that last 5% being my credit-card is ready to swallow the airline ticket fare.. :thumbsup: hehe What costume would you wear on TH for a photoshoot?

Troppy: I remember your Yuna costume(s) from last year; will you have them again this year? I can't wait to see your Rinoa!

Troppy
03-13-2004, 11:20 AM
Well, sweetie, I'm always Yuna at ONE point in a con or another. *giggle* Saturday I'm shooting for Wedding Yuna still, but my progress is going so slowly that I may not have it finished. I still have Summoner, Songstress, Thief (my award-winning baby!), and Gunner in the wings to pull out as replacements, but they all have their pros and cons and it's hard to choose which ones are wear-able at such a large event. If you (or anyone else) prefers to see me and/or get photos of one of my outfits, feel free to make suggestions. :P

Rinoa is so close to being finished already that I'm sure she'll be there. Just gotta get that wig. ^-^ Can't wait to see you.

RikkuX
03-14-2004, 08:22 AM
Hey if theres any availble spots/times, I'd like to sign up for a photoshoot on Thursday. Not to mention see all you fine people a day early before the con ^_^ I really like the clear pictures you take, Eurobeat King and i can probably bring out my Rei costume if you're doing Asuka and Shinji.

Yay for ACen Guy Brown! I'll try to catch you on AIM

And i know what you mean, Troppy about wearing Yuna at least at one point during a con, same goes here for Rikku...its just kinda like a tradition ^_^;

Richii
03-14-2004, 02:29 PM
hehe. its gonna be fun! We're still on for dinner yeah? (are Admin and Aeris comin' to?)

Ayana
03-14-2004, 02:40 PM
Hey, I should be there at some point during the day on Thursday, since I want to avoid the pre-reg line Friday if at all possible...so I'd definitely be up for this! Not sure which costume I'd wear, though...depends on what actually gets finished in time.

TheLoneWolf
03-14-2004, 04:17 PM
I shall be there as.......Terry Bogard, Johnny, or Calintz. I guess I'll decide at the con! :bigtu:

AllStarAlice
03-14-2004, 04:45 PM
I'll be there on Thursday, I have that day off from school...so I could be there any time of the day on Thursday. I'm not sure what costume I could wear then, probably Milk from Pop N Music or Warrior Yuna from FFX-2...if I end up doing this of course ^_^;;;;

R1KKu
03-14-2004, 07:49 PM
Hopefully I can be there, depending on what time I get off of work. What time is this photoshoot going to happen and is there a meeting place for it?

CapsuleCorp
03-14-2004, 08:45 PM
okay, I was opposed to getting into costume Thursday just to pick up my pre-reg, but this is starting to sound interesting. Are you just going to prowl around looking for early cosplayers, or do you plan to set up something to meet and greet?

RikkuX
03-15-2004, 06:59 AM
i think we ought to have a set place to meet (and/or maybe a time) because otherwise we're gonna be random ppl in costumes walking around like we dont know what day it is. ^_^

ACen Guy Brown

i think we ought to have a set place to meet (and/or maybe a time) because otherwise we're gonna be random ppl in costumes walking around like we dont know what day it is. ^_^

yes but that would be quite a site to see... lol.

but yeah where when and what time? Who knows maybe I will cosplay on thursday, that is if I am wanted.

Eurobeat King
03-15-2004, 10:11 PM
Troppy: Oh, any yuna you would like to wear on Thursday would be fine. I'll do my best to get whichever ones you wear during the con, but choose one for Thursday (it's your choice) for a photoshoot when I find you in costume. :)

RikkuX: There's no real set-time or time-slots for the photoshoots on Thursday. How it works is that you simply wear a costume on Thursday afternoon/evening, and wander around the hotel. If you tell me what you'll be wearing, I'll keep an eye out for you, say hello, and then ask you to pose for photos. (Depending on the area & time of day, we can either take photos inside the Hilton's lobby, the 2nd level courtyard, or else outside by the front of the hotel.) Thanks for your compliments, btw about my pics! :) I'll do my best at each con, and A-cen 2004 is no exception! That would be schweet if you wore your Rei to pair up with me & Richii. Thanks!

Ayana: Yeah, I'll be pre-reg. also on Thursday, depending on when they start it, and I'll keep an eye out for your costume, whichever you decide.

LoneWolf: Maybe you can wear 2 costumes that day/night, since those seem to be pretty easy to change in/out of, ya?

AllstarAlice: Woww.. Warrior-Yuna? That'll be good to see before the con begins.. I'd like to see that, and remember: I post my pictures in ORDER of when I took them, so after I get back from A-cen I start with whatever Thursday pictures I took, so yours will be among the first that go up!

R1kku: As I told RikkuX, there's no set time & place, and these are INDIVIDUAL photoshoots of cosplayers when I find them, NOT the big COSPLAY.COM GROUP photoshoot.. that's on Saturday. Just show up when you can, and wear a costume, and keep an eye out for me. (wearing either Shinji or regular clothes)

CapsuleCorp: Yep, I'll just be wandering around the hotel during the day/night, looking for cosplayers, until about 10-11pm, where I'll be turning in to get some sleep for the big weekend.. DEPENDING on if I get a lot of cosplayer-pictures during the afternoon, i MIGHT set up my con-tradition, the cosplay.com table-gathering, which Admin and I usually have on Friday and Saturday, but if I get a good amount of pics on Thursday, I might set it up on TH. (more details to come)

EVERYONE (mentioned above) and others: hehe Can't wait to meet everyone, and like I said, whenever I get to cons the day before, I settle into the room and maybe nap for a couple of hours, and then I would wander around the hotel, looking for cosplayers. Whoever I find, I'll ask to pose for a few pictures, depending on how busy you are, (I might ask for a few extra poses) and chat for a little. :) I'll post more as the con gets closer, so hopefully this'll clarify how Thursday will work for photographs.. see ya!!

The Chicagoland Cosplay Club (C^3) is planning something Thursday to get our tickets in pre-reg. I'd love to wear one of my costumes and get pictures. Hmmmm I'm thinking I could wear my Akagi costume (the pilot suit from Dai-Gaurd).

03-18-2004, 08:27 PM
We are? Oh. :) Well, then! We'll see what I can drive down to Chicago in and freak out the normals at the toll booths...

Thanks Eurobeat King! Looking forward to meeting you, so far I've only been an admirer from afar of your mad photo skillz.

Yui
03-18-2004, 08:49 PM
CC - How about...Dende! Except I'd wanna be in the car with you at those toll booths! ^o^

And in efforts to not further hijack Al's thread, please see the C^3 forum for info on other Thursday afternoon activities. (Altho, if we do have the pre-reg line party, that would be a good time for photos. ^_-)

RikkuX
03-19-2004, 07:11 AM
Well just for a heads up (if anyones concerned) I'll probably be able to arrive around 5-ish on Thursday since its the last day of my Anime Club and upon being the president i have to attend, but i'll rush to the Hyatt afterwards!

CapsuleCorp
03-19-2004, 08:25 PM
LOL I'd love to freak out people as Dende, but it takes an hour to get into the makeup. I'm not doing that at work just before I leave. ;)

Eurobeat King
03-20-2004, 10:36 AM
CapsuleCorp: Thanks for the compliment! I'll be sure to get pics of your Dende (DBZ?) costume on TH or whenever you wear it. :)

RikkuX: So I'll see you as Rikku around 5pm'ish? You mentioned you'll have your hair like that before you get to the con, so I'll take photos of you as (one of your) Rikku's, and then later you, Richii, and myself will do the EVA-trio pics. I told Richii and she's cool with wearing Asuka later in the evening. :D

03-22-2004, 10:41 AM
this sounds amazing!! i know that my sisters and i will be cosplaying in the pre-reg line on thursday. i'm going to re-do my sailor moon costume, because i want to break out my Link costume on Friday. i would love to do some photoshoots or something, because i absolutely luv your pictures!! they're awesome!! XD

i was actually thinking of arriving at the hyatt in my sailor moon costume, just to see the reactions. who knows, if enough of us cosplay on thursday, we could open up ACEN a day earlier!! waii!!!

I'd like to get there early but it totaly depends on the schedule of my friends since I have to carpool to get there. I probably wouldn't mind getting into costume Thursday evening for photography but it really depends on how our last minute (and there's always last minute) costume details and car packing go. It would be fun to talk to you more Eurobeat, as you're just awesome. *also admires your photo-taking skills* :)

YU-Yu_Ri_Pa-NA
03-28-2004, 10:11 AM
Hopefully I can go..I only live 10 min. away from the hotel :x

I'm going as Popstar Yuna, but I might wear my Radical Ed outfit..hmm hmm all depends..

-is going to beg parents to skip school- ^-^''

Irvy
03-28-2004, 05:23 PM
I should be there on thursday and I'll probably be wearing my Neji costume. It's my most comfortable costume and the best to wear when stuck in line for a couple of hours^^

Jgo Factor
03-28-2004, 11:57 PM
I'll be in the pre-reg line on Thursday dressed up in the Macross: Do You Remember Love UN Spacy uniform.

Black_Knight
03-29-2004, 08:16 PM
So how can we tell who you are Eurobeat King? I'm also itching to met Jimmy Carter (Nickname I gave to Admin) and Aeris... So is a particular time you're going to be togther, such as a rally point?

Eurobeat King
04-02-2004, 01:56 AM
YYRPN: That would be nice to see your Songstress Yuna before the con begins. :)

Black Knight: How does Admin resemble Jimmy Carter, btw? :thumbsup: As for me, usually on the day I get there I wear normal clothes, and you can probably see me wear my usual photographer-clothes: white shirt, tan pants, and a grey, hooded sweat-shirt. Or else I'll be wearing my Black-Metreon jacket, looking like a DEA-photographer-agent.. :skidude2: Later in the evening when Richii & RikkuX wear their Asuka & Rei costumes, I'll be cosplaying with them as Shinji, so you'll be able to recognize me then also.

As said before, there really is no set gathering place, just walk around the hotel in costume on Thursday, and if I see you, I'll ask to take a few photos of your costume. Come up and say hi to me if you see me taking pics of other cosplayers, like say "are you Eurobeat King?" and introduce yourself.. If you plan to cosplay while waiting in the pre-reg. line, I'll come up and ask to take photos while you wait, and I'll have the c.com business cards ready to pass out (in case I don't recognize you as a member) to let you know where to find the pictures online after I return home. So just cosplay, and I'll find you eventually that day/afternoon/evening.. :)

Oh boy! I'm so glad I'll see some of my "old friends" a day early. I'll be Ryoko (tenchi muyo) the whole weekend. I actually made a wating in line/thursday costume specifically. I'm not sure what time I"m arrving. Probably around 3:00 becuase last year we couldn't get into our room until 4:00. see ya guys there!

KrisnWo316
04-04-2004, 01:45 PM
I'll more than likely be there on Thursday. What time do the lines open up anyhow?

I have no clue what costume I'll be wearing, as I don't know what I'll have done by then or not. Hopefully I'll get the gloves redone for Tonberry King, or get Master Shake done, or one of my other random costumes. Worst comes to worst, I'll just wear Strongbad, like I always do. ^_^

04-06-2004, 08:38 PM
Goodness, I also remember you. You explained to me that your name is the name of some hot model or something after I asked about it. Hahaha... I think we were standing with you in the line for the masquerade. Man... I can't believe a year passed, already!

Schu
04-07-2004, 01:00 PM
If I make it there on Thursday, I'll be wearing either Robin or dj Iroha, depending on how hot it is out and what's more comfortable. I'd be glad to take pictures for people as well, if anyone's interested. Any groups going out for dinner?

kijo
04-07-2004, 01:10 PM
If me and my friend get in on time (we're flying in as well). Then we'd love to see if we could meet up for some pictures. I'll probably be in arcia from chaos legion, but not really sure yet. See you all there! ^^

AllStarAlice
04-07-2004, 10:36 PM
Ohhh Schu! Please wear Iroha Friday night, that's when I'll be wearing my DJ Celica costume~ My friend that I made an Iroha costume for in the past can't make it to Acen, I really really wanna get pics with you!! ^_^

Schu
04-08-2004, 02:09 AM
Sounds good, I was already shooting for Friday with Iroha, and Robin for Saturday... :) I definately want pics, I'm trying to convince one of my friends to pick a iidx dj to do, so we'll see how that goes too. ^_^

Eurobeat King
04-09-2004, 10:37 PM
carly579: Did you read the PM I sent you? It'll be good seeing you again, since it's been a whole year since I last saw you (unless you went to Otakon last year?)

Schu: It seems like Katsucon (and Ohayocon) was just yesterday, huh? hehe I'd like to see your Robin, Sung-Mina, and your awesome Trainer-Rikku again at A-cen if you bring those! Which would you cosplay on TH?

Kijo: Wow, an Arcia! I've yet to see anyone do her costume (or ANY from Chaos Legion), and it'd be cool to see someone do (as I like to call her) Capcom's version of Gunner-Yuna! ;) Keep me posted if you will have her on that Thursday.

Schu
04-10-2004, 02:58 PM
I'm hoping to wear Robin for Thursday. I'd like to have something simple to wear that would be easy to run around in, but I don't think I have time to make something new. I'd be glad to pull my trainer back together for some pictures, but I'm sort of sick of my seung mina ^__^

a kodocha video just gave me an idea for a Sana costume. hmm... possibilities.

jenchan
04-12-2004, 05:26 PM
OK, when are these photo shoots.

ACen Guy Brown
04-12-2004, 09:58 PM
OK, when are these photo shoots.

I believe they don't have a set time they are just a bunch of them on thursday night. but please correct me if i'm wrong.

Troppy
04-13-2004, 12:09 AM
In Al's case, there is no set time...which is good since things get REALLY hectic the day before a con, and schedules are hard to keep. It's basically just a "if I see you, let's take some pics!" adventure, from what I've gathered. ^_^

Eurobeat King
04-13-2004, 01:20 AM
Troppy: Thanks for answering that Q for me. :)

Everyone, all you have to do if you want photos taken on you in costume on that Thursday is just to be in costume, and walk around the hotel, around the first floor lobby, the 2nd level, or down the hallway that leads to pre-reg. and the other events. If I see you in costume, I'll stop to ask to take your picture. I might take a couple, and then present a cosplay.com card to let you know who I'm representin' and where to find the pics online after the con. If you want MORE pics taken of you, just ask. :) I'll be wandering around the hotel after I check into the room (after 1pm) and maybe rest a little, but then in the afternoon and on, I'll just be looking for cosplayers, so if you see me, come say hello and introduce yourself. To make myself more noticable, look for me wearing the clothes in the attachment file, which is basically regular clothes and the BLACK Metreon jacket.. Pretty easy to find.. Then in the evening, I'll be wearing Shinji to triple-team up with Richii & RikkuX for our EVA-trio of Shinji, Rei, and Asuka. :D So you'll see me during that time taking pics of ourselves, but just come up in costume and if I see you I'll take pictures if I haven't already during the day.

Since I'll be doing photoshoots around the hotel during the day & evening, if you want to wear 1-2 costumes and changing into them isn't a problem, I'll take pics of each costume you wear. Example: RikkuX is wearing a Rikku costume when she arrives for me to take photos, and then she's changing into Rei for more photos. But she won't arrive until after 5pm, so if anyone is there earlier (after 1pm) and wants to do multiple costumes on that pre-con day, my camera will be ready. :)

See you all soon!!

ChibiRydia
04-13-2004, 06:18 PM
I plan to be wearing my Julia (Cowboy Bebop) costume on Thursday for the pre-reg line and just for kicks. I'll be around. Search for the black vinyl catsuit.

Hey, where the heck do we go for picking up our pre-reg stuff anyway?!?!?!?
If you see a confused Julia, please help me!!

Jaquii
04-13-2004, 08:53 PM
I might be able to take it there early as either Zelda (LOZ) or *epilouge* Elena (Grandia II). It would certianly be worth it to get a mini photoshoot in. ^_^

ArsenalFierce13
04-20-2004, 01:18 AM
Ooh, now I'm getting all excited! I think I'll have to pick up my pre-reg on Thursday just to see who all is there and offer a sneak-preview of my Faye Valentine casino dealer outfit (which I'm planning on wearing Saturday, with my Faye opera outfit appearing on Friday. I usually debut the new stuff on Sat, like I did with the opera outfit back at Ohayocon). Like Troppy/Yuna and RikkuX who commented before me, I tend to have at least one Faye costume per weekend, and this time I'm doubling up. I'm also excited since I finally know who Eurobeat King is! I knew the name from the photo galleries, but didn't know who it was, then I saw a picture and realized, "hey, he's that Shinji I see all the time!" So it'll be nice to meet you ^_^
(I'm also indebted to you for getting a good picture of my Komagata Yumi costume at Ohayocon, its first outing in 3 years... every picture my boyfriend took caught me with the most awkward and hideous facial expressions, and I couldn't put any of them up in my gallery).

CapsuleCorp
04-20-2004, 09:24 PM
I'm starting to think the same thing, Arsenal - wearing something Thursday night that I'm going to wear Saturday but only for a short time, so a little extra exposure for it might be good. I'm definitely coming into Chicago Thursday night, dropping off kylash's sorry butt and picking up my reg anyway. Might as well do it dressed as Yami Yugi. :)

VashzMynBackOff
04-22-2004, 11:06 PM
I'll be there as Chii (white dress from opening theme) with my REALLY, REALLY, REALLY awesome ears I got from Firefly-Path!!! I'll get there around 4:30-5:30, depending how much time my sister wastes making last minute adjustments (she's a procrastinater ^^;). This is gonna be my first cosplay (from SOOOOOOOO many times it was supposed to be last year), so wish me luck!!!

YU-Yu_Ri_Pa-NA
04-23-2004, 06:51 AM
This is gonna be my first (from SOOOOOOOO many times it was supposed to be last year), so wish me luck!!!

It's my first con too :3

Schu-Kodocha is so kawaii ^-^ and doing a Sana would be pretty easy and quick if you just doing a last minute thing..Or if you do the mom..might need a little more time for that -giggle- <<dun ask o.o

I'm doing a Popstar stand and microphone (looks exactly like the real thing so far, creeepy..) so could I bring that with me? Don't worry, it's not over 4' long ^-^ remind me to put pictures up here..-hops off to get ready for school- ^_^'

04-23-2004, 09:03 AM
To Eurobeat King and others:

It is confirmed I will be doing "Bum" Roger Smith from episode 14 of Big O. Yes I will be unshaven and scraggily Thursday in the pre-reg line. ^_^

Berry

ParnsAngel
04-23-2004, 09:26 AM
unshaven and scraggily, eh?
Going to clean up for Hubb Friday morning?
*gives evil ex-wife stare*
XD!!!!

Yui
04-23-2004, 01:12 PM
He could be scraggily-bum "stuck-in -prison" -or- "roadtrip!" Hubb, you know!

Um, I think my plans may have changed as far as what I'm wearing Thursday, though I forgot what I said in some other thread on that. I will probably actually be wearing something new and complicated that I need to test out moving in while there isn't a crowd around. So I might be a little overdressed for just Thursday. ^_^;;
...Or just FILTH Kaoru again. XD

Your sorry, purple-haired butt, that is. :D

Andrea
04-24-2004, 05:09 PM
Hmmm, I thought I replied to this thread before, but I'm not seeing it. ;) My friend and I will almost certainly be dressed as Ban and Ginji from Get Backers while we're hanging out in the pre-reg line, and probably for most of the evening too (though we may change into Ban and Ginji's pajamas). Depending on when we're going through the line, we might have a Teshimine with us.

Man, I can't wait to start taking pics of everyone myself, and to have pics taken... :D

04-29-2004, 03:30 PM
ACEN.org posted the times for "registering" on Thursday 5pm to 9pm... I also gor the impression that these are the times to pick up badges too. So I guess this isnt an all day thing then?

CONfused

04-29-2004, 06:52 PM
I'll be there at some point on Thursday too. I'm not sure what I'll be wearing though. I may bring along my Rinoa just for kicks and wear it that day for pictures... I need more decent pics in that costume. Even though the wings are ruined on the back and it's kind of stained from my #$%#$!@# wig. ><

RedPikachu
05-06-2004, 12:51 PM
Oh! Eurobeat King! I totally missed your question that you posted like two freaking months ago!! I'm gonna be in my burlesque/Victorian/EGL/Moulin Rouge Pikachu costume, and I'm gonna be with my friend who will be Amexander Anderson from Hellsing.

RikkuX
05-06-2004, 04:45 PM
any ideas on how many of us theres gonna be Thur?

we ought to find a meeting place

Eurobeat King
05-08-2004, 11:43 AM
RedPikachu: I remember you from last year, so I'll keep an eye out for ya and your friend. :)

Bobbi: I'll make sure NOT to ask to take a picture of your Rinoa back, since I usually ask Rinoa cosplayers for a picture showing their wings. But if you get it fixed by Thursday, let me know. If you get there during the day-time, we can take pics in that center island where the cars & shuttles drive around (provided the weather is good) since there are trees n' such. :)

RikkuX: Hopefully there should be a good amount of people cosplaying on Thursday, with the amount starting small in the afternoon, and growing when the pre-reg. line forms and when pre-reg. opens in the evening. :) I know Richii (who's arriving a little after I do) will be among the first cosplayers I will take photos of in her Asuka dress. (We'll do EVA pics again in the evening with you.) When you arrive, we'll do the Rikku photoshoot and then Eva later on.

yeppers! I'll be at the hotel around 2:30 and it'll probly take me about 30 minutes to get unpacked and Asuka on...unless my plane ride makes me want to go running to the shower first then you're looking at about an hour! XD but I'll be sure to call you once I'm in the hotel!

I'm really looking forward to seeing all the great cosplays and the Eva good-ness with RikkuX and Al! yahoooo~!

Terribly last minute....but I should be there thursday. I'll probably wear the ZAFT uniform most of the day(Or perhaps wait up for some people, and change into it later.), and just hang around to pass the time, greet everyone, and get used to the Hyatt again. Gonna drop off my consoles for the game room and pick up my badge as well.



2 Days....So close! ^.^

I'm doing a Popstar stand and microphone (looks exactly like the real thing so far, creeepy..) so could I bring that with me? Don't worry, it's not over 4' long ^-^ remind me to put pictures up here..-hops off to get ready for school- ^_^'

Nevermind about the stand..my brothers just ripped it all apart and I won't have it by registration or ACen itself..;-; I hate my siblings..

I'll be there sometime on Thursday, probably not till like after 5 tho. I won't be wearing my warrior Yuna just cuz i don't want to lug it all there on Thursday, then again on Friday for the weekend. I'll probably bring my DJ Celica costume tho.

Im hoping to be there between 3 and 4 maybe just before 5, I should have my Samurai on for photoshoots. I think I remember where the pool was, so Ill be lingering around that area.


Sorry to hear about your stand, YU-Yu_Ri_Pa-NA, maybe there will be another popstar floating around, you can ask to borrow their stand for pictures?

Poo..... my money order got lost in the mail, so now the [Chii] ears won't come in time. But Lilly and Haruka are really nice ( :bashful: ), so they're gonna give it to me at the con!! Unfortunately, they're not gonna be there on Thursday, so I'm gonna make a pair outta foam! :bigtu:

This will probably be my last post here before I leave for A-cen tomorrow morning, so I want to say good luck to everyone who's finishing up costumes for the weekend, and be safe in your travels (driving & flying) to the con. :) I look forward to seeing whoever's there tomorrow, else bright n' early Friday morning! For everyone who's wearing costume(s) tomorrow, I'll do my best to keep an eye out for you in different areas of the hotel (lobby, 2nd level by the restaurant, the pool, and down the hallway of the hotel (1st floor) that leads to the main events rooms. And keep an eye out for me, probably wearing either my grey hooded sweatshirt or my black METREON jacket. :D

Can't wait to meet everyone again, so let's make this a fun-filled 4 days of Anime Central! :skidude2:

I'll be there to pick up my regstration on Thrusday to beat the Friday rush. I won't be in costume though. I will bring my camera to take picuters of any costumer that happens to be in the regstration line.

Thanks to everyone who showed up on Thursday and cosplayed before A-cen began and posed for pictures! :bigtu: Those pics will be the first ones I post, and I took a few (mainly of photoshoots) so you'll know when Friday's pictures start going up from the lighting and background.

Special thanks to RikkuX who wore 2-3 costumes that night, as well as Richii for wearing Asuka to do our EVA-trio. *double hug* :)

I'll post the link to the pics starting tomorrow or just check my galleries for the A-cen 2004 pictures!
