I cant wait for NDK, my costume is gonna be a hella lot better this year(I was the crappy Rinku last year).I CANT WAIT ITS LIKE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY YEAR.

Yunie-chan
05-16-2004, 12:24 AM
x.x I'm pulling insane costumes changes again, though nothing like last year. Ugh, that wasn't all that fun.

Anybody know what they're wearing for sure yet? ^.^ ::is always curious, likes spotting people::

I know Friday I'll be wearing Chun-Li, Saturday will be Sephiroth in the morning (yes, yes, I'm wearing him again after the happy response of last year; he has a few improvements, but isn't "complete" and won't be for another year), Galaxia in the afternoon, Kuja for the masquerade, and either him or Galaxia in the evening, while Sunday will be streetclothes... or me gothing out for the hell of it.

I can't wait.. September is too far away o_o I'm going to die before then.. I really hope the summer goes by fast. Hopefully I'll be going as Kaoru from Dir en grey in his Drain Away outfit... Yeah. I can't wait just to go.. And I've recruited 5 more people to go with me! Yes! XD

Yunie-chan
05-17-2004, 01:06 PM
::applauds:: Going as Kaoru AND recruiting 5 more people to attend? That's awesome. X D

Audience Killer
05-18-2004, 08:31 PM
Hahaha... Yes... And my friends are probably more excited than I am just because it's going to be their first con... But you going as Sephiroth is going to be just n_n Great.

Yunie-chan
05-18-2004, 09:14 PM
Oooh, they shall indeed have fun. ^.^

lol, ah yes, the Sephi. My friends are already going "merf.. she's wearing that again..?" but lo, it is my baby. ;.;

How do you recruit people to go with you? I'm going to NDK and it's my first time.

Yunie-chan
05-19-2004, 12:51 AM
Recruiting is simple; just ask people you'd like to join you. ^.^ I did that my first NDK, and it works out quite well, because you then have someone familiar around you.

Nym
05-19-2004, 11:23 PM
Finally!!! Some other folks who are attending NDK '04! ME TOO! I'm planning on going as Sanzo from Saiyuki^_^

Audience Killer
05-20-2004, 03:44 PM
Yes! Sanzo! -worships- Great yes.. Oh so great... Man that just got me really happy to read that someone is going as Sanzo.. It really did... n_n Just because Sanzo is cool... So that makes you cool... o_o

I got 2 rooms reserved already.

Gonna do a ninja(in the Amateur Ninja Club) from Real Bout High School. Planning on wearing that on friday.

Gonna definately bring along my crossplay costume i did last year & wear it again saturday.

GF wants to be a cabbit. Gonnna try to make it/get it/assemble it for her. If not that then she is gonna be a Neko(car girl).

LunarYoma
05-24-2004, 04:38 AM
Also i missed last years cosplay meetup at NDK(putting on my crossplay costume took longer than i thought). Should try setting up another get together saturday morning in the lobby area.

X D Mwaha, I make a cameo in Frostey's icon. ::snickers:: Even though it's not the best pic of Sephi.

LunarYoma, I'm glad you're wearing the crossplay costume again. *.* Must get pics of it this time!

x.x And lastly, Oda, I hope you have friends with rooms... as getting a room by now in the hotel would be pretty hard. And the filler hotel is a few blocks away, so if anything, I'd suggest getting a room at the Sleep Inn next door to NDK. It's cheaper as well.

o.o And I think I'm done spazzing...

LunarYoma
05-26-2004, 12:34 AM
Oda try to reserve a room ASAP, otherwise you wont get one in the hotel the NAK is held at. If ya cant do that then get a room at Sleep Inn if ya cant bunk with someone.

Kuri-chan
05-26-2004, 11:08 AM
I'm trying to get down to NDK this year too. My first time at an anime con! ^^;

Hopefully I can get things in order, reserve my room soon, and get the costumes I'm hoping to get done... done!

Any advice for a first timer to NDK? ^^

-Kuri

sitbonnie
05-26-2004, 03:35 PM
:dance: I am going to the con. ^-^ I think I am going to be Kasumi from Ranma 1/2 and Yuzuki from Chobits. I am not sure what else. My sister is coming for sure... then I have 3 other friends who want to come, we just need to work it all out with our parents so we can carpool to go all three days.

Advice... talk to people, compliment outfits you like, take pictures if you can... visit different things. I went to the last NDK but on the last day and only for about an hour. I regret not taking pictures, not talking to people, and not doing much.. I did talk to a few people and compliment their outfits, that was enjoyable.

Ahh, I can't wait til ndk! *runs around* I just have a lot of costumes to do (at least the ones for my sister and I - 6 in total... although, on of mine is kinda done, I just need to add the finishing touches... *hops* fun fun fun!

Yunie-chan
05-26-2004, 04:18 PM
Not only do all that sitbonnie suggested, but get your room quick. x.x They unfortunately go fast, and being a cosplayer without one can = the suck. Make sure to get enough sleep and food around the con as well, as you tend to forget such things while having fun. ^.^*

Looking forward to it... I'm going to drive between con and home, so I can sleep in my own damn bed, and it'll be cheaper, thankyouverymuch.

I'm PLANNING (you know how cosplay has a tendency to change at the last possible moment...) on Songstress Yuna again, Gunner Yuna, Rosette Christopher (from Chrno Crusade), and Kururu (from Bottle Fairie, hopefully with a group).

Looking forward to seeing everyone! *Wavewave*

YES! I finally got my costumes down, I was like Rock Lee(Naruto) and Sora(Kingdom Hearts) to Higari(Yu Yu Hakusho) and Wooden Sword Ryu(Shaman King) and then I settled on my first final costume with Jak(Jak 2) and recently realized im too poor to do something extensive and extravagent for my other 2 costumes so I came up with rad yet cheap costumes finally settling on Captain Kuro(One Piece) and Tetsuo(Akira) when hes got his whole red cape thing. Both are kool and inexpensive, I love it.

Alleria
06-07-2004, 11:37 PM
wow...I stop going here and already a thread starts. I'm probably going to go as Botan from yu yu hakusho and who knows what else. I just need the $$ to get all my crap in a bucket...not fun I tell you. ah well. so close, and yet...so far away...

Yunie-chan
06-10-2004, 03:15 PM
x.X Had to change my costume list... again.

Friday, I'll be wearing Chun Li still, but Saturday massively changed. From whenever I wake up and leave the hotel room to sometime in the afternoon, I'll be wearing Sailor Starhealer if I finish it. Otherwise, Galaxia will be worn all day/after that until the Masquerade. Masquerade time = Kuja from Final Fantasy IX for a few hours, then more of probably Galaxia. Sunday is still the same as well.

In other words, Sephiroth is staying home for this NDK. He'll be back for 2005, completely finished and hopefully with a new wig. x.X Poor thing.

I think I shall finally get my butt in gear and pre-register today. x.X And sew. Woot.

And I dunno what days will be which, but I am going as Rose Bride Anthy, Misato from EVA and Sango from Inuyasha ^^ Got like 10 friends joining me too ^^ *thinks* We nearly have the whole Inuyasha gang going with just me and my friends. We have a Kagome, Miroku, Inuyasha, Kikyo, Sesshoumaru, and then plushies for shippou, Jaken, and Kirara ^^ Whee ^^ *can't wait till September* My sister, my boyfriend and I are planning to compete in the Cosplay Contest ^^ *has the script written and the choreography planned for the most part*

x.x Merfle... my costume list just changed again, but as I don't know if this is final, I won't keep reposting. It's what is known as... annoying, yes. X D

Entering the cosplay contest with a group of video game characters, all from FFIX.

Pink Spider
07-28-2004, 04:52 PM
i'm planning on entering as well as summoner Yuna..and hopefully i can get a couple friends to form a group..it'll be all mixed up though xD Yuna, Lene, Tifa, Auron...not the best group huh?

Yunie-chan
07-28-2004, 11:52 PM
Mixed groups are so welcomed. X D Blah, it's not weird at all.

And it seems I should start looking into making another FF photoshoot set-up again. x.x Woot, woot.

Yunie-chan
07-29-2004, 12:04 AM
lol, the Sephiroth that got whinier as the days got longer? Yeah, that was me. X D

I'm thinking of making it close to 3 p.m., so those getting ready for the masquerade can already be in costumes if need be ::cough me cough::, plus then everyone will have done all the other photoshoots, ate, etc.

Pink Spider
07-29-2004, 06:36 AM
yeah..that would be convinient for the people arriving in the aftertoon...if you need any help..I could...be of assistance?

hihi! It's Becca the wandering NDK con chair back to bug you as I do on occasion! - *waves* at everybody - ^_^

News you may have heard but may not so I'm out making sure you do in case you can go and apologies if you already know -

NDK is pairing up with nightclub Rock Island to do what we think is the first in the country *ever* joint club/cosplay night. Since it's a gothic theme night I've nicknamed it GothPlay, and anything from visual kei costumes to sepiroth to Deedlit in Fairy Mode would fit in just fine. What the heck, so would Jigglypuff, after all it's gothic and lolita style that introduced the word 'pink' to goth, right? *laugh* Not into any of those? No problem, show up as Belldandy, we're good with that too!

The party is 9 p.m. Sunday August 8, at Rock Island in LoDo (downtown Denver) and I've put all the details up at the NDK web site at http://www.ndk.cc - it's linked right off the 'news' blurb on the main page. It's 18+, sorry to the youngers, if you're underage and it goes well we'll try for a great turnout so we can do it again next year and so on until you're old enough to go.

Not only is GothPlay the theme for the night, but there's going to be a fashion catwalk and I'll be out signing folks up for it at 8:30 before the bar opens (wow, your character's name might be pronounced right, *laugh*), so if you're there, I'll say hi, be kind to me because I'm shy, *smile* I've also been plying the DJ with JRock CD's so who knows what might show up in the lineup! I feel so subversive... ^_^ Rock Island and the Wizard's Chest are also going to be raffling off (no cost other than your door fee to get in) tickets to see the Cure in concert or to see the Colorado Ballet's production of Dracula and we're throwing in con passes too (what the heck, if you're already registered for this year we're happy to make them for next year instead)! I'm really excited about this and I think it's going to be a one-of-a-kind awesome absolutely crazy and deliciously dark event so I'm there for sure, I hope you will be too. ^_^

love n' hugs
becca

Off to go hammer more on the programming schedule for the year!

------------------------------------

Dragon Boat Festival is this weekend!

PatrickD, you're a cosplayer too? You get around everywhere! I mailed your letter this morning. ^_^ FYI for others, Patrick and Lizzard will be doing their patented Chibi Project experimentation at NDK this year - That midget is just wrong. So is this project. ^_^

*laugh* No worries - around this time of year I have a mind like a steel sponge myself - I keep moving it down to try to catch the thoughts that drained through it a minute ago and if I'm lucky I get them all before they drain completely away... ^_^


:reverse: I'm smilin'! See, I'm smilin'! I have *everything* ready for the con! No, really! Wait, the computer just ate my whole program schedule... *eep*!!! LOL... Being bouncy excited about an event next weekend doesn't help me remember which guest I forgot to book tickets for either, *laugh*...

The real question is can I get my costume completed in... what... 5 days?

Oh it's possible, if you don't mind 14 hours of sewing per day. My friend and I made a Yuffie costume in 5 days for Otakon and for the Anime Network launch. Just be ready to have a lil less sanity when you're through, lol!

All I really need is the jacket and the gun, but the gun wouldn't be coming with anyways, so I've got a couple days to :try: figure out what the spoon I'm doing...

You could try to find someone to help you who knows how to sew (worships her mother for last year) Never attempt to make three costumes 4 days before the con.. Bad idea.. But yet somehow, we pulled it off o_____o You could either find someone, that or expirement.. That's always fun. But yes, don't give up!

EBK UPDATE: Chances look good in me going to my first NDK, as I'm about to purchase airfare within the next 1-2 days! :D My target arrival-time will be on Thursday night, but around midnight, so I won't be wandering around the Holiday Inn once I get to Denver. In fact, I'll be staying at a cheap motel nearby on Thursday night, and then waking up early and checking-out before walking 0.3 to 0.6 miles (is that far?) to the HI where I'll be staying until Sunday.

I can't wait to meet a lot of new people at NDK, see some familiar faces (like SugarXSpice & Beverly if they're going), and of course, take LOTS of pictures! ;) So please say hi to me if you see me wandering around the con, and also don't hesitate to ask me to take your picture in costume(s) if I don't ask first.. which I usually end up doing..

Costumes? It's my first time to NDK, but I still plan to concentrate on photos, so if I do cosplay, I'll bring: Shinji Ikari (NG Evangelion), Trowa Barton (normal Gundam Wing & Endless Waltz Mariemaya-uniform), and possibly Ryosuke Takahashi (Initial D) w/o the FC3S I'll keep you posted as the con gets closer.

As for a cosplay.com BIG-GROUP photoshoot & the Friday & Saturday-night TABLE-GATHERINGS, I'll plan those within 1-2 weeks. Not sure if Admin & Aeris are going, tho. I'll update my status again here when I get the airline tickets. :) See you all in 6 weeks!!

No time this week meant no costume for me... I could be laguna sans-jacket, but that just wouldn't be the same... *sniff* Well, this prolly means I'll give in to my introvert tendencies and chicken out on the Pre-party... Have fun all, and I hope to see you at NDK (and here I guess...). *sniff*

I bought my airline tix today, and so EBK is going to NDK!! :bigtu: Like I said in the last post, I'll be arriving Thursday night, but will be going directly to a cheap motel once I land into Denver, and getting (hopefully) 5-6 hours of sleep before walking to the Holiday Inn for pre-reg.

Does anyone who went last year know how long the wait usually is for pre-reg. on Friday? And, how EARLY do people stand in line for pre-reg? Any info would be good for this newbie to NDK.. :thumbsup: But I should be ready to take photos once I get there.. :) I'll prolly be in regular clothes until I can get my room at the HI, and then I'll change into school-uniform Shinji.

See you all sooon!! :skidude2:

Yunie-chan

Pre-reg starts anywhere between 4-5 p.m., and being one of the first people is awesome, as the wait is maybe 10 minutes at the most. Later in the day, it can be anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

As for Sugar, Spice, and Bev, they're all going to be there. ^.^

Yunie-c: I met SugarXSpice & Beverly for the first time this year at A-cen back in May, and they were moving after NDK, so at least I get to see them onemoretime this year. :) Have I met you before at another con other than NDK or will this be the first time? Oh, I asked about pre-reg. starting-time on FRIDAY. I'll miss Thursday-afternoon/evening pre-reg. but I will try to be one of the first ones in line Friday morning for pre-reg. :)

Yunie-chan
08-08-2004, 06:57 PM
This'll be the first. ^.^ I've only attended NDK and AnimeOasis at this time, but next year, Otakon will be added to the list, lol.

lol, the times I listed are Friday pre-reg. ^.^* Oh, wait! Change! They start at 3 p.m. on Friday and go until 9 p.m. My bad, lol!

Eurobeat King
08-08-2004, 07:13 PM
Yunie-C: Ahh, you're right. I forgot that NDK is one of those that starts in the AFTERNOON/evening, but isn't that a little-late in the day to start pre-reg?? :thumbsup: That means, for Day #1, you'll have a lot of people cosplaying and in normal-clothes, but they'll either be wandering around the hotel w/o badges or else, in line to wait for pre-reg. to start. Imagine the line for pre-reg. say, at noon or 2pm?? :thumbsup: (reprise) I guess I'm used to going to cons that start pre-reg. at 8am in the morning, with loooong lines of people who waited as early as 5am or even overnight in line!! heehee Will you be bringing your Chun-Li costume as seen in your avatar? I may have recall seeing your costume last year on my friend Lionel's (usagichan.com) website before..

Yunie-chan
08-08-2004, 07:20 PM
Yeah, AO was in the morning, so it's a weeeeird change. ^.^* But it always seems to work!

Lionel only has me in Sephiroth from last year, along with a few other costumes. SugarxSpice have me in Chun Li, which will be worn on Friday of NDK for my Cammy, lol. ^.^ Then insanity ensues on Saturday with the costumes, whee!

Eurobeat King
08-08-2004, 08:07 PM
Yunie-C: Ahh, my apologies thinking that picture was you.. So I'll look for you as Chun-Li and Cammy (did I read your last post correctly?) on Friday for pictures. I'm still debating on if I should bring Hibiki to NDK since that'll be the first time I wear her to that con, and it'd be cool to get some Capcom vs. SNK pics together if you're up for it. :)

I don't want to sound rude or anything, but could you two please talk about these things through Private messages, or some Instant Messaging thing. I'm kinda getting annoyed that it's a conversation of two people in a thread where many people are.

Sorry if I seem abrupt or rude, but I'm telling the truth.

Eurobeat King
08-08-2004, 09:19 PM
Alleria: This seems to be the only thread regarding Nan Desu Kan here in "others" since there aren't any on the main convention page, nor is there a message board on the NDK website. So since members can't really post separate threads about stuff going on at NDK like "Who's bringing which costumes?", "Did you take my picture?", "Final Fantasy gathering at NDK", "Nan Desu Kan Official Cosplay Gathering List", etc. it is encouraged for others to post as many times as they can on this one-and-only thread for NDK for any subjects regarding the con, cosplay, pictures, etc. I can ask Admin to see if he can make a thread on the main forums page specifically for NDK but that's up to him. Now, if there WAS a seperate thread for costumes, then Yunie-Chan and myself would have this conversation in there. However, it's up to other members to post here with whatever they want to talk about, and they haven't done so recently, so that's why it may seem like a 2-way conversation. As for the content of our replies, I made an announcement stating that I am going to NDK, and ASKED anyone for information regarding pre-reg. since I haven't been there before. Yunie-Chan was kind enough to reply back with some information, and I also asked her about her costumes. As a photographer, it's nice to know which costumes members are bringing so that I'll know what to look out for.. Our replies ARE relevant to cosplay and the NDK convention, so it is open for discussion here on this thread. You didn't have to reply to it since my Q's about costumes were directed to Yunie-C, but you went ahead. And you say you don't mean to sound rude, but by saying that comment in your reply: you are rude.. period.

Alleria
08-08-2004, 09:26 PM
Gomen, Sir, but it really felt like it was just you two talking about little things that could have been cleared up between you two in some e-mail or whatnot. Yes, the Pre-reg info was important, but then it slipped into what felt like two good friends chatting and kinda left..well...everyone else out of it. I can tell you're a photographer and I can see that you wanted to know what she was going to wear, but maybe you could have asked all "minor (I use the term minor only because it seems minor to me)" questions in a private messages. Again, Gomen for open my mouth and saying what I wanted to say.

And this isn't the *only* NDK thread out there. It's just the only NDK thread on this site. Now, if you still want to battle this out with me, then let's not mess this thread up and you can just PM or something.

Eurobeat King
08-08-2004, 09:39 PM
Alleria: I haven't posted on this thread until this past weekend, since it wasn't relevant to post until I knew fersure I was going to NDK. So now that I know I am, I posted and Yunie-chan was the first person to reply to my pre-reg. question. I have not met her before, but mentioned my friends that I do know (SugarXSpice and Beverly) who will be attending NDK, and she stated that they were indeed going. If there are other BBS's and message boards about NDK elsewhere, goody-goody.. But since I'm a mod and staff here on cosplay.com, this is mainly the one that I post on and keep tabs on it, especially ones that are about cons I plan to attend. You said what you had to said, as did I, so until Admin makes a main-page of these forums, I encourage anyone who's a member here and going to NDK to post here about anything regarding cosplay and the convention. I won't discuss this any further with you here, or waste time debating cosplayer-drama in my PM's.

I apologize Alleria if it seemed rude to you, I didn't mean to come across as such, but it seemed quickest to just reply here. I was doing that before with several people, mainly to keep the thread alive, and I'm sorry if it seemed insulting towards anyone. I don't like to cause/get involved with/talk about any form of "drama and such", so again, major apologies.

Supaidaa, it rocks to find pics, doesn't it? X D

EB King, I'm always up for group shots, especially as I tend to make most of the group photo times with help from other members for the con. ^.^

Back to sewing I go, and anyone who went to the Rock Island NDK event, let us people who didn't go know how it went. ^.^

Supaidaa
08-09-2004, 10:44 AM
Hello again forum, I just wanted to say that I think NDK is going to have Alot of people. I just tried booking a room and they said the nearest hotel was 2 miles, so I hope people booked well anyway I thought that was cool and wanted to let everbody know..

Ringo
08-09-2004, 12:06 PM
Just FYI for everyone here, pre-reg does start at 2:00pm. ^_^
The first scheduled programming is a 3pm. (so far)
As it gets closer I'll try to let you know what kind of cosplay programing is in the works. (besides Iron Cosplay that it's ^_^, it will be saturday afternoon)

***********

Rock Island!

It was a great time and well recieved by everyone. ^_^ It was awesome to see bits of the X movie and La petite Cossette on the screens in the club. They only played one or two J-rock songs during the catwalk, but hey even then it still rocked! I left sortly after the catwalk so I'm not sure how things went afterwards but there were still people coming in as we were leaving. I really hope we get a chance to do it again next year it was a ton o fun. ^_^ I haven't peaked at my pictures yet hopefully some will come out, my camera hates the dark.


Al: Great to hear your coming out! We meet breifly at A-kon this year my friends and I had Gundam Seed and Tsubasa RC costumes. Hopefully we can chat again! ^_^ See ya there.

Makoto
08-09-2004, 01:34 PM
Rock Island was a blast! XD It was a great environment, and the club "regulars" seemed really interested in cosplay. Everyone's costumes were so beautiful. There was a great turn-out, and it seemed to only get busier as we Old Ladies were departing. ;)

Thanks so much for putting this together, Becca!

And Al, it's so nice to hear that you're definitely coming this year. Yay! (I'm the short one always hanging around Ringo-chan. ^_^) We will try our very, very hardest not to miss the group photo this time! Really! I don't know how we always miss them... XD

Yunie-chan
08-09-2004, 02:25 PM
I'm so glad the Rock Island event turned out so well. ^.^ If I get better with my fear of clubs and the event's held next year, maybe I'll make an appearance, lol!

Supaidaa, did you mention to the NDK hotel you're with the con? They won't let anyone book anymore rooms if they're with the con, even with rooms open. I had to be tricky to get the ones I reserved. Also, the nearest hotel is actually next door, which is the Sleep Inn. It's got spacious rooms and is just as nice as the Hoilday Inn, but I don't know how the prices are. You may want to check that out. ^.^

Supaidaa
08-09-2004, 05:51 PM
Yeah I asked about a room not saying I was with the con and no luck. I also called up sleep in and they said 3 rooms left. Amerisuites said you got the last room, but they could be pulling somthing so who knows... Good luck and I hope this helps

PatrickD
08-09-2004, 05:57 PM
Becca, quick question... Is the Guests page correct or are only the people mentioned on the home page going to be there? (Just curious because they don't match up and I wanted to make sure www.anime-cons.com had the right people listed.)

I checked Amerisuites last night online and it said that there were rooms left. Maybe because I said only one bed, but I'd still think that they'd have some left still. I would have gone last night, but was unable since the parents said no. Feh on them. Hopefully there'll be next year. I hope ::crosses fingers::

Hey, I have a few questions since this'll be my first time to NDK. I hope that's okay! ^^;

How big is it? I always like getting at least some clue so I know what to expect XD

Also, are there any gatherings being set up, or already set up? I'm just wanting to see when I wear what costumes XD

Eurobeat King
08-10-2004, 02:17 AM
Ringo: Ahhh, I remember you.. I loved your costumes at A-kon, and hope you bring those again so I can take more photos! A-kon was a while ago, (several cons back for me.. hehe) so I'm glad I'll be able to see you and Makoto once more this year. :)

Makoto: It'll be good to see you again too, since A-kon was hectic (not as bad as AX or Otakon) but still busy at-times. At A-kon we didn't have a c.com group photoshoot, since Admin was busy doing his photoshoots. But I'll do my best to form one on Saturday, September 18th, time TBD, as well as location. If you or anyone knows a good spot in the Holiday Inn that has LOTS O' ROOM and can accomodate a large group of cosplayers (and photographers), let me know. Else, Friday I'll scope out a good locale for the group photoshoot, but it'd be good to know ahead of time so I can post here to let people know where to go before the con arrives. :)

Alleria
08-10-2004, 09:31 AM
Well, Usagi, I can't really say that NDK's huge, nor can I say that's it's small. It's small enough that someone you met that year would reconized you and it's large enough that you meet at least ten or more people every year. I'd say that it's a perfect size. I know, really helpful there. (sorry)

Gaiaonline.com has already set up a photo shoot for Saturday at 11am by the fountain (Most people know where this is, but {For those that don't know} the fountain is in the main area where regristration is)

So, when you guys set up a time, Make sure it's not around 11am for it. It would be hecktic if two groups met at the same time. and people like me would be lost as to which one to go to.

Ringo
08-10-2004, 11:11 AM
I'm not sure if someone metioned it already, but registration has been moved this year. It's now on the opposite side of the hotel where the info desk used to be. ^_^ Which is awesome because now that great waterfall area will be totally empty. =D

As far as size I believe the numbers were just shy of 3,000 last year, I could be wrong so Bekka if you are still floating around please correct me.

There is also a very helpful FAQ on the site: http://www.ndk.cc/faq/ndkomake.html
Especially the health section, if you aren't used to high altitudes it's worth a good read. Altitude sickness will ruin a con XD , just remember to drink a ton o' water and not to much caffine and you should be fine. ^_^

Al: It'll be great to see you again! And yes we'll have those costumes and some new ones. ^_^ The waterfall area will proably be the best bet for an indoor photo, but it is Colorado so outdoor might be a good option too. ^^

Yunie-chan
08-10-2004, 02:13 PM
NDK is estimated to hit over 3,000 attendees this year, if that's any help with the size.

There's the Gaia photoshoot at 11 a.m., and the Final Fantasy photoshoot at 3 p.m., all in the fountain area on Saturday. It's a huge spot, so that'd be the best idea to hold any shoots.

The lower lobby area in front of the bar is also a decently sized space for photos as well. We held the cosplay.com shoot last year there and it worked out just fine.

Eurobeat King
08-10-2004, 04:38 PM
Thanks for the heads-up on the location ideas. :) I might shoot for 2pm for the cosplay.com gathering, so that it won't conflict with the Final Fantasy gathering. Any later and it will conflict with people getting ready for the masquerade, so between 1-2pm would be ideal for the gathering. As it gets closer, I'll make an announcement here regarding the time and details. If I'm the only mod here attending NDK, then i'll help organize it and line-up cosplayers like we've done at previous cons, and Lionel has also helped the last couple o' times, which was key for the BIG cons this summer.

We're not doing any *official* gatherings or anything, but it would be nice to have some people come take pictures with us on any of the days.

We're doing Malik, Rishid and randome Rare Hunter (YGO) costumes Friday, Sailormoon SuperS villians Saturday (same as last year!) and Sailor Senshi Sunday.

I'd really like to see some other YGO people. Not even costumes, but people who actually play. All the YGO fans go to Otakon....I'm hoping SOMEONE at NDK will actually come and play the game with us. Just one friggin person!!!!

On Saturday if anyone wants to do a Sailor Moon shoot, let me know, we'll come join you. Same goes for Sunday.

Yunie-chan
08-15-2004, 03:23 PM
A Sailor Moon shoot before 3 p.m. would be AWESOME, as my Animates and I will be wandering around as well. Plus, lotsa senshi are planning to be there this year as well, so why not?

Any suggestions?

Sailor Moon Photoshoot is at 1:30 p.m., all in the big lobby. For the last one, look for Galaxia and her Animates if you're confused.

I leave the boards for a few days.. and BAM, lotsa replies. X D Bwaha, hello full mailbox.

You'll be fine. People are generally nice to everyone, especially in reference to costuming. ^.^ NDK has an insanely friendly atmosphere, and you'll feel right at home. If it's any consolation, I had the same thoughts and feelings my first NDK, but as soon as I walked down to the lobby in costume, that all went away. ^.^

For the most part, NDK is an easy con for newbies to go to, as far as I found out.

You will be fine...last year was my first con...NDK is not that big so you meet lotsa nice people. Don't worry at all about little things like that...esspcially the costume part...last year i was running around in a costume i made 2 days before the con and it honestly wasn't that good, but did i care? nope nope nope!! you'll be doing plenty of things to keep yourself busy and thinking of other things^^ if you need some one to talk to..look for yuna (without staff), Utena, or Wolfwood..depending what days you are going ^^

I can relate with Insane Drifter.. MY first time to NDK, and I'm wondering what the con will be like, how the people & cosplayers will be, and just overall how much fun will I have.. :thumbsup: haha I shouldn't be too overwhelmed that weekend, as I've handled BIG cons before, and I tend to like the smaller ones since it's easier to find cosplayers and take their pictures. :) (Would you say NDK counts as a small or medium-sized con??) Ooooh.. just a few more weeks.. I can't wait! :D

Yunie-chan
08-22-2004, 01:04 PM
Definitely medium-sized. X D I've been to AO, now that's a small con!

I promise you guys will all have fun. ^.^ The staff and people there are all awesome and friendly (however, don't stress out the staff.. suffering from sleep dep does cause one to have a short fuse.. x.X), the dealer's room is lurvely, and the opportunity to just sit and chat with new people is high. ^.^

Now then, back to working on Galaxia. About a month before the con, and I have 2 costumes to finish. HELLO STRESS! X D

And I need to go post those photoshoot times on the NDK-ralted LJs. x.x *waddles off*

Eurobeat King
08-22-2004, 01:57 PM
Since there's less than a month to go until NDK, I'll go ahead and post the info & details regarding the cosplay.com group photoshoot:

Cosplay.com Group Photoshoot
DAY: Saturday, September 18th
TIME: 1:00PM
LOCATION: Holiday Inn lobby

I welcome anyone who posts here or is a member of cosplay.com to show up and join in on the gathering. It is not limited to just c.com members, like if you have friends who will be in costume during that time, they are also welcome to show up and pose in the gathering. When we do these big-group photoshoots, we encourage any cosplayer(s) who are within the area when we gather up the rest to join in. :) It is required, though, that you do wear a costume for the photoshoot, and it can be anything: anime, video-game, j-rock, j-pop, sci-fi/fantasy, etc., but you must be in a costume. Here's an example pic of a cosplay.com gathering:

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=162630
(NOTE: If I'm the only staff-member attending, we won't have that banner since Admin & Aeris may/may not go..)

I'll arrive early to take pics of anyone hanging around in the lobby (if I didn't take their picture earlier in the day) and after people show up, I'll wait a few minutes before gathering everyone up into the group. It is encouraged that you get there before 1pm, but I shall wait until 1:05-1:10pm (the latest) and then do the group formation. If you do arrive late while the photoshoot is taking place, just join in on either side, as I DO take pics of cosplayers from all sides (left, center, right.) Lionel (Lionboogy) will be there to assist me in making sure that everyone is seen in the photoshoot, with taller cosplayers in the back, and you may kneel down in the front, but make sure you don't block the person behind you. And if you have a weapon, stand in the back and hold it in the air (for as long as you can) as people will want to see your prop as well as your costume. Overall, the photoshoot will take no more than 10-15 minutes: once we gather everyone up, the photographers will shoot away, I might dash into the center to pose with everyone for a few pics, and then that's it! ;) Afterwards, I'll still be around to take SOLO pics of anyone who I missed or wants their picture taken, and I'll also be there for the Sailor Moon gathering at 1:30pm.

It'll be a fun gathering, so I look forward to seeing everyone from here try their best to make it for the photoshoot! see you soon!

Oh yeah, and about it being your first time, everyone there was really nice to me last year (and it was my first con) Me and the two other people I was with ended up going across the street to lunch with some other cosplayers, and we had a blast just at lunch.. Very interesting trying not to get ketchup all over your costume... Plus, if I think Insane Drifter.. You are who I think you are... You're going to go with a bunch of other people right? So we'll all watch over you, and not leave you anywhere alone.

I did the lunch thing last year with I think 6 other people, we all just walked across the street and had lunch there, which was really fun, espically since the guy who took my order knew who I was. But doing that again would be fun, I enjoyed just walking over to the fast food places last year.

planning ahead is a good thing...cosplay is hard...cuz if you change your mind and you've already started the costume.....you're stuck with it....i honestly went threw almost 14 or 15 characters before I decided finally.

Vashie person....too bad you aren't going to be Vash this year...I've got my wolfwood cosplay together..not that it takes much effort....but the cross was sure a prodject for me...and i'm acctually quite pleased with the results.

Selfie_T: Since I prolly will be the only mod from c.com going, I can edit the first post of this thread to list the cosplay gatherings at NDK 2004 for all three days, if everyone is cool with that. Later this evening, I'll edit the first post by ChibiMiko (whom hasn't posted since May 2004) and create a listing of the groups. (I'll search this thread and post the gatherings like the DOA, Gaiaonline, FF, etc.)

For everyone who is planning a group, please post the following which I'll post in the gatherings list: name of anime/video-game/j-rock group, day (Friday through Sunday), time, and location (inside lobby, outside hotel, etc.) If you decide to make any changes after you make your decision, post them here also so I'll update the list for everyone to see. :)

UPDATE: I've editted the first post of this thread to start listing a few cosplay gatherings so far. I'll post any updates in the evenings when I return from work each day (7pm PST or later)

Selphie_T: If there's enough people to join your DOAX gathering, I may cosplay as Jann Lee with you, but unsure yet. Also, did you want to include DOAX (volleyball) characters or keep your gathering strictly DOA 1-3 costumes?

Eurobeat: I think that any DOA cosplayers would be appreciated, no matter which game they're from. I think we will have three to begin with, four if you join us! Which is always a good thing.

Also, thanks for gathering those all up. As a member of the consistently absent-minded, it's good to get everything together in one post so I can print it out... ^^

Real swords must be sheathed at all times, and must be checked in with con security to be peacebond (they make it so you can't take it out without causing damage to the sheaths or swords) before being carried. ^.^* At least, I believe that's what it still is.

Eurobeat King
08-25-2004, 06:52 PM
Yunie-chan: I was wondering as well about swords being allowed at NDK.. I plan to bring Hibiki, and will be bringing her sword-cane (the entire thing and not just the sheath because I need to pack it in a separate box, so why not bring both pieces.) I plan to put clear-duct-tape around the part where the blade comes out, making it tough/impossible to pull the sword out. Cons usually have difficulty peace-bonding sword-canes since they're just one loong piece of wood.

If I choose to bring my Saitou Hajime costume also, I'll have a wooden bokken for him (with the majority of the bokken painted silver.)

Selphie_T: Thanks for letting me know that DOAX is welcome, so I'll edit the first post to say that DOAX cosplayers are welcome for your DOA gathering. I'll let you know before NDK comes if I will join you for the DOAX gathering as Jann Lee.

Are you planning on posing a lot with her sword? I know she has a blue cloth-cover thing over it, and it would be easier to peace bind it when there's something on it. But, I can see your point if you want to have it out a lot. Try having it peace bound, and use a small amount of tape to hold it into place.

Azuma
08-25-2004, 11:54 PM
Eurobeat King...please ooo please go at Saitou...in my opinion Kenshin Rules and the more the merrier...btw is the Saitou costume from the OVA or TV series...we could get some cool pics the arch rival thing goin u know LOL well it up to you but it would be cool if you did....BTW Yunie do they bond it for you or does it have to be bonded when u get there....

Eurobeat King
08-26-2004, 01:24 AM
UserBlackRose: I don't have the blue cloth covering, as I like showing the sword-cane as a prop, which Hibiki uses when she fights. (makes great for action shots) ;) But yeah, I'll have them peace-bond it regardless, and even if they don't I'll use the clear-duct-tape on the sheath so that the blade doesn't come out.

Azuma: I'm really not sure yet which one I'll be bringing yet.. I COULD bring both, but that would weigh my 1 suitcase down, and the sword-box would be heavier if I had to bring 2 swords with me. But I haven't worn Saitou in a while (AX 2003) but I might, since it's my first time to NDK, and I do want to cosplay some costumes in addition to taking tons of cosplayer pics. :) To answer your Q, my Saitou costume is the TV version, and here's a pic:

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=3487

My friend Erika Door made that (as well as my Hibiki costume) back in 2002, and even though I don't cosplay that much these days to concentrate on pics, I will wear them once in a while to show that I still cosplay a little..

08-26-2004, 11:01 AM
It's my belief that NDK is one of the more careful cons about peace-bonding. I went to AX 2002 with my Selphie nunchucks and no one ever said a word about the chain, but the moment I stepped into NDK they had me in the security room so fast I didn't have time to blink.

I've yet to see someone do her alternate-white costume, and it'd be cool to pair up with you as default-orange costume & alternate-white costume :) Keep me posted, as I'm most likely going to bring mine to NDK.

I can try to commit to a RK gathering if you and others are planning one, but it depends on the day.

UBR: Hibiki's sword usually is just plain with no words on it. When I bought my sword-cane it came with writing on one side, and I started to scrape off some of it, but then decided to leave it on since the writing looked nice, and so for pictures I just show the blank side.. ;)

Audience Killer: Are you planning to have a DIG and/or Ruroni Kenshin gathering? Or are they just for walk-around hall-cosplay? If you are planning gatherings, please let me know (post here) the day & time so I can post them on the first post here.

3 weeks to go and there's only a small # of gatherings so far? If anyone knows of any planned gatherings that are listed on other forums, like the NDK LJ, let me know so I can post them here. :)

Azuma: There's still time, so just reply here if you do plan to have a gathering.

Yunie-chan: Do you know if there are plans for a Capcom vs. SNK gathering, that includes costumes that we discussed a few pages back? I'm just curious since I'm cosplaying Hibiki on Saturday, I might want to form a CvS gathering early in the morning but I'm not sure unless there's going to be other fighter-characters showing up.. Also, what's the link to the gathering list on the NDK LJ since you mentioned you updated the gatherings' list there. Thanks! :)

Eurobeat King - As far as I know, I think most people are wearing their fighting costumes and such pretty much on Friday. x.x But yeah... I'm not entirely sure, lol.

The gatherings list that I have can be found here: http://www.livejournal.com/community/ndkcosplay/9756.html and http://www.livejournal.com/community/ndkcosplay/10421.html. I haven't posted about the Cosplay.com photoshoot or the DCS (Denver Cosplay Society) one either. x.x Been so busy.

I think that's it. o.o Let me know if you need anything else!

Eurobeat King: I think they are just going to be for a walk around the hall cosplay, I just don't think that enough people will hear about it for it to really work I guess. Plus, from what I saw last year, there weren't a lot of Dir en grey or Visual Kei cosplayers walking around until much later at night.

I think sign up this year starts the earliest at 5 p.m., but NDK's site says it... and I'm painting and sewing, so I can't really say for sure. X D Heh.

Either way, Masquerade is Saturday, I'm thinking LunarYoma's correct on the time, but again, can't say for sure. ^.^*

Back to scrambling costumes together and rehearsing. x.x

Opps, I spoke too soon... I found the times! YAY! Here is what I got:

>>Cosplay signup
Friday night at usual, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Autograph hall, sign up to appear in the Costume Contest or CosPlay Saturday night onstage! Mastersí Category members should also check in. The numbers that will fit in the event time are limited, so please sign up early!<<

BTW, It's from the programming page

Also, here are the rules for the contest http://ndk.cc/ndk2004/CCRulesNDK2004.html

Last year the costume contest was packed so get to registration early ^_~

Yunie-chan: Thanks for the info. Again, I'm surprised that there's been just a small handful of gatherings. And I know that come the con there's going to be get-togethers of some popular series like Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, One Piece, and more.. hehe But it's kewl. I'll keep my eye out for any groups, and have my camera(s) ready. ;) Oh, if people are getting together on Friday for a fighting-game gathering, I probably will be there to take pics, since I wasn't planning on cosplaying Hibiki until Saturday morning. It's going to be hectic on Friday having to pre-register in the afternoon and not to mention getting my hotel room, and it won't be until after that will I put on Shinji. Later on I'll switch costumes, but I will save Hibiki for Saturday.

Decided on a costume-schedule for NDK:
Friday afternoon: Shinji Ikari (Neon Genesis Evangelion) w/ Pen-Pen
Friday evening: Ohgami Ichirou (Sakura Taisen)
Saturday morning: Hibiki Takane (Capcom vs. SNK 2)
Saturday afternoon: EBK outfit for cosplay.com gathering
Saturday evening: Ryosuke Takahashi (Initial D) w/ plushie AE86
Sunday: none

For your help and time, I will give you a copy of your interview and when the documentry is done a copy of that...

I'm disappointed that my weekends have filled up and I won't be able to finish my newest costume. (One that I had HOPED to have done for Anime Boston in April...then PortConMaine...then for AX...then NDK... Yeah, it's a tough one.)

Anyway, looks like Renamon will be making yet another con appearance... At least I haven't worn it to NDK before (since I've never been there before).

Ah, I promised myself I wouldn't kill myself over a costume, so this is where I test my faith in my own words. I was able to finish most of Hibiki's white alternate costume, but I think I'd like to spend more time making it look spiffy, so I'm out. Too bad - I wanted to get some photos of me this year.

I'm a pregnant lady anyway - I'd look funny. XD

Gally2003: Aww, that Alita costume looks good! You did a nice job! Oh, if you're looking for j-rock concert DVD's, try going to the House of Anime booth if they're going to be at NDK. (They usually go to a lot of cons) and they specialize in a lot of J-rock merchandise. If they do go, I hope you find what you're looking for.

Userblackrose: That's unfortunate that you won't have Hibiki done in time. :( But it's good that you want to finish it to make it look great. Be sure to say hi to me if you see me walking around. Can't miss me, just look for lots of orange and listen for the clapping of her sandals.. ;)

Funny...I haven't even posted on this yet! This will be my 4th year. (I think...) I kind of cosplayed my first year as a really really poorly made and inaccurate Sephiroth (http://cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=31989), but it was made the night before so it doesn't count. Then I cosplayed as Video Girl Ai (http://cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=34731) my 3rd year, but I plan to re-vamp her soon and wear her again sometime. It was my first time sewing ever!

The con is coming so soon, and I'm getting so excited! So far I have 2 costumes that are definatly going to be there. Kasumi from Dead or Alive (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=191854) and Jeanne from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=170183). I have a third costume, Deedlit from Record of Lodoss War (http://cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/details.asp?costumeid=51842), but she might not be done in time. ;_; The biggest problem is not that I won't have enough time (I bet I could crank the rest of her out ) but I lack the funds. Stupid college!

This whole month is so hectic! I'm moving back (from Vail to Denver) to school tomorrow, and the con is less than 2 weeks away! AHHH!!!

So, I called the Holiday Inn, and you can reserve a room for up to half a year. I think I'll start reserving my rooms a little later than usual. And there's some rumor about another hotel change? I like this one. ;_; The fountain rocks. So does the piano (even though you're not supposed to touch it).

Yeeee, I hope you get it done. Deedlit rawks.

Actually, I might have another costume, too. We were randomly talking about costumes this weekend, cuz, duh, we hafta get them done, and I stumbled across my friend's Rufi shirt. As it turns out, it will work really well for Otogi (YGO) and if I dye my hair black I might do that. Because I'm not so sure I want to wander around for two days with my stomach showing. X_x

I liked the change to the Holiday Inn. The scenery was much more laid back and the extra space was godly. I'm just not too fond of the fountain being "off limits" when I've seen kids run all over it (when I was staying in Denver for another reason). Perhaps it was the massive onslaught of people on the fountain.

The piano can't be touched, but it's there. That confuses me? It must be a magical piano.

I stayed in the Sleep Inn, two years ago. It was very nice- as long as you didn't mind the walk/had a car ^^;;;;

So since this will be my first year in the masq (hopefully) since 1999 or 2000, how early do people line up?? Hmmm???

I found out our hotel is the Sleep Inn, luckily my mom is going to be walking around with me for a while, so she doesn't mind driving me over and dropping us off when we need it.

I just hope it's not going to be too cold for you guys to walk. It's a short distance, but I've made that walk to pick up a friend's stuff at ten in the morning and I froze my butt off. O_o

Even though there are some extremely close hotels, it's a long way to walk from one to another if you've got painful heels on or a large costume. Try to get rides with friends, as it will save your life! ^^

And I don't think the open field is between the NDK hotel and the Sleep Inn anymore - they built a warehouse, as I recall.

A warehouse? That's harsh. XD Anyway, I can't figure it out if the Nan Desu Kan is remaining in the same hotel or not. I'd rather not loose my four year tradition of rooming in the same building.

Last month, When I went to the general staff meeting, Becca said that NDK would be held in a different hotel next year. I'm not 100% sure with Becca stepping down from her position as executive director and all, but Iím pretty sure *shrugs* but the new hotel is supposed to have cheaper rooms so Iím not complaining. More money to spend on random anime goodies! YAY!
