Looks like the people at Animemetro had a lotta bit of success last year with Metrocon, so now they're on their second round!

I attended last year as Goddess Urd , and I definatly had a blast, so anyone up for this one?

Our group We Go 4 Kyo! will be here. I'm not sure what our costume schedule is going to be, but I know we're making special dresses for the Final Fantasy Ball. ^_^ It's going to be so much fun!

I recently found out i'm going to Metrocon now. ^. ^ I wanna do a cosplay, but I don't have any clue as what I should do. I was thinking something FF related for obvious reasons....but who? X. x I suppose if I don't think of anything i'll get cheap and pull off a Wolfwood. :toothy: Hmm...maybe a Turk version of Vincent for kicks? :blubber: I don't know...

I figured if I could get a few girls who were willing, I'd wanna go to the Final Fantasy ball as ganguro girls. We'd wear fancy yet bright colored dresses and high sandals on Friday and Saturday I'd do Momo.

i think i'm gonna go as kurama.
do you need a final fantasy costume to goto the final fantasy ball? cause i could make a sephiroth costume too just for the ball.

I am VERY looking forward to Metrocon for various reasons. Shhh Susumari, don't say anything!

Anyhow, here's my costume line-up:

Friday at the FF Ball (I have class earlier that day)- Rinoa Ballroom Dress
Saturday- Sara Trantoul from Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
Sunday- Sango from Inu Yasha

*squeals* Ah! Everyone's got such neat ideas for costumes. I'm excited, even though it's still mad early.

Nah, you don't need a FF costume for the ball. I'm just gonna go to Rampage and get this--oop! Wait can't tell you what I'm getting!

So to get it all straight, my costume line-up:
FFBall - Ganguro Girl - originial
Saturday - Momo Adachi - random manga outfit
Sunday - undecided (possibly Mihoshi in the works)

05-26-2004, 09:27 AM
Yeah I can't wait for MetroCon!
Friday- maybe digicharat
Sat- Galaxy Angel
- (afternoon) surprise
Sun- Card Captors

Now I just have finish all these by Metro x.x

Have a hilarious cosplay skit planned and going to have fun being in the Anime Idol contest with my friends :)

Can't wait!!

Kaze: Cool you're going to do Momo? :) I am going to have to get some pics of you then.

Kaze
05-26-2004, 09:30 AM
Hopefully I'll have a digital camera by then so I can get pictures of all of you.

*sigh* but yea the con is dawning on us fast. I need to get started myself. Are you guys staying at the hotel? My dad is finally allowing me to stay, so that'll mean late night fun!

Minion
05-26-2004, 10:00 AM
i just hope i can make it now. i have a job interview today, and i'm gonna ask if i can get those days off if i get the job. it might be pushing it though, cause i'm also gonna be in texas for a week starting like 2 days later

you're doing a ganguro! sweet, i will def look out for you ^-^
but, i think i'm going to change into something for the ffball. i only have one costume set, and it's anthy. i duno what else @.@

Kaze
05-26-2004, 03:43 PM
Lol I feel like a loser because my costumes are never that difficult. I do almost no sewing at all. u__u;; and everyone else works so hard...

Besides that who are all the guests this time around? I havn't had time to stop by the animemetro site.

And how about that human chess match? Anyone going to see that?

ixupi
05-26-2004, 03:50 PM
Heh, i am actually REALLY interested in seeing the human chess match...being my nerdy self. I was wondering though who was actually controlling the piece( ^. ^ or human if you will.)movements? I didn't get too much time on the metro site but I saw that all seemed to be ADV people...so, yeah.

Bah...a costume doesn't have to be stressful and intensely time consuming to be good, right? Right?! :thumbsup: I feel kinda bad myself wanting to do Wolfwood, which to me seems to be a played out character,no? Oh well.

It was a fun convention last year. It was really fun for a first year convention.

Kaze: Lol you should feel bad about it ;) I think you're lucky to not be going insane sewing right before a con.

*Looks on metrocon site* They have a ton of guests this year including Luci Christian, Don Rush, Doug Smith, David Williams, Greg Ayres, Katie Bair, Robert & Emily DeJesus, Vic Mignogna, Chris Patton and Monica Rial.

Monica is a reall cool person even though I don't watch much dubbed anime.

And I am really looking foward to the human chess match! It's going to be sooo awesome!! I was sad I couldn't make enough practices to participate.

The Volunteer panels are going to be really interesting too. There's so much cool stuff going on!

my costume line up will be:
friday- filth kyo
saturday- yokan toshiya
sunday: misha (dress, not pj's for once..lol) from pita ten

Kaze
05-26-2004, 09:50 PM
Well, I herd the human chess match was scripted, but I'm rooting for the Catgirls anyway! Go catgirls!
But I dunno who's controlling it.

Madhatter: Oh it'll be so great having other ganguro with me! Don't forget the frosty white eyeshadow! *adds that to her list*. I'll be there to see your performance. I was in the anime idol thing last year. But we won't talk about that now will we? :thumbsup:

Mitylene: Chris Patton showed up last year and he was freaking amazing as well as funny as all heck. I hope to get his autograph this time around. Katie Bair though...wow. That's got to be awsome seeing her.

*squeals* it's so good to see so many people going! Japanese 101 panel on Friday! I'll be there ! Anyone joining me?

05-26-2004, 09:59 PM
Amazing that Metrocon is the next con of the summer. Time flies. Well, my schedule is (seriously):


Friday - Reno from Final Fantasy 7 for the Final Fantasy Ball
Saturday - um...dunno
Sunday - um...still dunno

I'm so the planner I swear.

*whew*
...with Megacon, AE, and now JACON in the books; I can finally concentrate attention on the convention that's been declared my "vacation" for the year. XD Next week I'm gonna try and secure a hotel room; since they filled relatively fast last year. It's set to be a BUSY weekend with all the events going on left and right(and I'm participating in a number of them too x_x). So if I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off, you'll know why. LoL.
Anyway, what's everyone's costume plans/weekend outlook thus far? Here's what I've got:

Friday... FF7 Turks' suit(Final Fantasy Ball)
Saturday... Duo Maxwell(Anime Chess Match), Bob Makihara(Anime Idol)
Sunday... Leon Belmont(might end up wearing this on Saturday too, if time permits)


...I know I asked if anyone else was willing to do a Castlevania photoshoot, but I might postpone it for a single photoshoot or a different convention.

Minion
05-27-2004, 12:06 AM
i'm gonna start on my kurama outfit wihtin the next 2 days.
my new truck is too small to change in, so i guess i'm gonna have to drive to tampa dressed as kurama. i'm gonna get some weird looks when i stop for bathroom breaks, lol

makio
05-27-2004, 03:59 AM
You should just bring it in a bag/backpack and simply change at the hotel(in a restroom or something) if you happen to be wary of people eyeing you/being distracted on the road wearing stuff like that. :) Nice costume choice, btw... there was a good Yuusuke at JACON last weekend!

I went to Wal-Mart in my Urd costume before Metro last year, and it's fun going places in public in costume! But yea you could always change in the bathroom.

I'm hyped about this convention because it's so close to home! It's only a 10 minute drive from my house *releif*....But I'm still going to stay at the hotel anyway, because making that trip home can be a hassle, even if it is just 10 minutes. Plus I'd rather just stay there the whole time.

Susu: Hehe that's the best! Before the FFball starts I wanna walk about in my ganguro costume, just to see what people will say. One older lady last year mistook me for a protitute and invited me to her church e.e;;

I thought the gong last year was awsome! It really did help...I don't care how mean it was.

Susumari
05-27-2004, 03:42 PM
kaze- lol! a prostitute. you kno the first time i ever saw a ganguro i didn't even think anything like that. at the con, i'll scream KAZE! ^-^! yea, it was real funny with the gong, alot of ppl like got sad about that

Minion
05-27-2004, 05:00 PM
i'm still debating on if i should make a rose whip or not. i know i'm gonna at least carry around a rose.
i wish it was closer to where i live though. like jacon. i'm about a 3 minute drive from where jacon was.
hhmmmmmm. change of plan everyone! metrocon is being held at my house now! lol (j/k. don't come near my house. any of you :p)

Kaze
05-27-2004, 11:24 PM
A "rose whip" now that I have to see, and play with. :bigtu:

If I see anyone who looks even slightly like a little Miss Susu, I'm screaming "Susuuuuu"!! It's strange because I've only recently started responding to the name Kaze. But you can't miss me. I'm a towering 5ft 10inches and I'll be wearing the brightest of bright colors.

I kinda think ganguro have slutty ways and trust, some of them do. But the way I see it is they're just all about the now and they act on impulse which I think is awsome! So if their impulses lead them to show off what they're mother's gave them, I guess they're gonna do it. :thumbsup:

Hopefully I won't be mistaken for anything "unholy" this year...

Susumari
05-27-2004, 11:40 PM

*twitches* bad jpop contest experience....

05-28-2004, 01:17 PM
heres my idea for the rose whip. i would hold the rose in my hand. the rose stem would actually be the handle for the whip. the rest fot he whip would be hidden up my sleeve. i'd just pull out the whip, turn the rose around, and BAM! rose whip! :bigtu: :rockon:

My big paper for one class is due before Metrocon. Hence I am majorly working on it today. I want to get it out of the way. And get everything else for my other two classes out of the way as well. Due to Metrocon, my 3 classes, and a convention for school, I can't take a new summer job :(. Although they may call me to sub during the summertime.

Don't worry, this year I won't be singing onstage.

I am kinda worried about two of my costumes. One of them is all black, and the other one involves velvet. I am very sensitive to heat, and although I got cold last year wearing my Angel Hikaru costume, I fear I may get a heat rash or go hyperthermic. It HAS happened recently.

Happy Mushroom
05-29-2004, 02:43 PM
I live just twenty minutes from where the convention will be held. :3 I am going to make my first costume, gothic lolita outfit. I'll be there with several(a lot) of friends and hopefully for all three days.

Happy Mushroom
05-29-2004, 02:45 PM
Don't worry about the heat. It will only be near 90 or 95 and it should be held indoors where the air conditioning is.

weeeeh!! i can't wait for metrocon!!! ^^ i'm going to be driving up there with my older bro and a few other friends. i'm so glad that my older bro lives up there near tampa! ^^ i would sooooo love to stay at the hotel also, because all you ppls seem really cool and fun, and i wanna have fun too! ^^

i've been planning out my costumes, and recently i've been wondering what i should wear to the ff ball. i know i've been thinking of cosplaying mana for a long while now, and i decided to do french maid mana. itll be cool if i can carry around the same exact guitar he has. ^^

i think i may be going for the three days, but i might also want to cosplay as different ppls for the next two days. i've been thinking maybe reno, and maybe kaoru or gackt. ^^ i'm still trying to decide. ^^

but right now i'm wondering what i should show up to the ff ball as. i'm thinking of going ff theme. ^^

*drools* Mana at the ffball...save a danace for me!! lol

I'm having a bit of wig shopping troubles right now. Anyone know a nice place in Orlando that sells wigs? I'm sick of ordering online, but If I have to I will, I'd just like to see what's close to home before I result to the internet. Y'know , color matching troubles.

demonxlt: I love seeing the people who sit and perform and things like that. I always stop and view the art and listen for at least 5 minutes or so but my bf is coming and he likes to do the craziest stuff while cosplaying so he may keep me busy...but I'm gonna try at least!!!

Wish I had an older brother.. ;__; my little brother is too young and hyper to handle at a con (he's 9 going on 4 with serious ADHD) but one day he'll make a great addition to the cosplay community...I have my hope.

Anyway, it's supposed to be a "shirt" that looks like a dress...so I just made it a dress. Since it's uber short...I bought some white bloomers to go under it (I hope they won't mind if it's a tad bit tiny..) and it's uBER tacky just like the real ganguro girls! Today I'm gonna buy some neon knee highs to go with it! I'll get you guys pictures a.s.a.p.

In the meantime YAY more people!! We're all gonna hafta meet each other up at the con!

My friend though wants do a cosplay and being on the bulky side, he was considering either Jet from Cowboy Bebop's old 20's style getup or (which I think is hilarious) the one boomerang carrying baddy from the first episode of Trigun. xDD Anyways..ahem..since it is so close he'll probly do Jet...unless anyone here has any suggestions?

Crud...no rosey whip. Well...I guess stuff happens y'know? As long as I still get to see yous! I have a friend who recently told me she can't make it and it put a damper on my day...

Plus I dunno if the dress I picked is suitable for the FFball. It's a skirt none the less its just that it's material is cotton and I just wonder if it'll still count as semi-formal. If not, I'll find another dress and use that one for Sunday. *shakes her head* anyway anyway...

What events do you guys plan on attending?

Metrocon is one of the top two cons I'm excited about this year (the other is DragonCon). At Metrocon I'll be FF7 Cid in the FFBall cast. I'll probably also have a KH Cid costume I'll be wearing around, and I'll most likely bring my FF10 Clasko costume too. And at night at Metrocon? Cid wants to hot tub! Who's with me?

My first cosplay is so far a horrible dissaster. The pattern has yet to come and the web site gave me a very vague 2-9 week delivery. So.. I just have to hope nothing even worse happens. >.o

Argh, sorry to hear that :( I usually get all paranoid about cons and reserve my room super-early unless I'm a guest and getting a comped room or something. Year before last I missed getting a room in the Hyatt for DragonCon and had a momentary freak-out, so I feel your pain.

Well, I want to cosplay for metro but I don't think I will be ready. My g/f and I were thinking of talking the anime club into all dressing like demons from Konjiki no Gash bell. She is afraid no one would recognize us and I think that would be hillarious. She wants to dress up like tochiro from ge999, but I really don't want to do harlock since I am built like a football player.

Maybe I will be ready for yasumi or AWA. Of course I could cheat and do kuwabara again. That was an easy costume (Except shaving my chest ). But I am really in the mood for doing Gash Bell.... yeah running around with nothing but a large fish... tee hee.....

Can't wait to step all over Aeris' flowers at the ball -smirk-. Should be awesome though.

My only other plans are:

Friday - Reno from Final Fantasy VII (for the ball)
Saturday - Cound Vladislaus Dracula from Van Helsing
Sunday - [evil] Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Noticing a trend? >.>

Sunday - o__o; I have absolutely no idea. Maybe my Chocobo EGL again? ^__^;

I don't have enough money right now for Jenova, as well as time.

Now Reno I can make easily, and it shouldn't be to much with buying the cloths and such. What else is easy..? The french maid Mana is pretty easy as well.

But I would really love to pull off Dante! ^^ But same factor as Jenova. Would I have enough time and money?? But I'm still running around like I have no head. I'll think of something for Metrocon!

Hello all I really do hope I'm not interrupting here *is rather new at all this* Yes well I can't wait to see the wonderful cosplaying everyone will be doing. Since Metrocon is ridiculously close to my house I probably will not get a hotel room (I would but I'm flat broke) Anyway as far as cosplaying goes on my part I'm taking it really easy since I don't have my big old group going with me (ok its actually three people myself included and only one will not be going). I'm only cosplaying on Saturday and I'm going as Zaphkiel from Angel Sanctuary and a friend of mine will be going as Raziel. That should be rather interesting since we have a bit of a Zaph/Raz relationship, well you know what I mean. I'm hoping to meet plenty of people there *is rather antisocial) and perhaps actually keep a few as friends. Right well I'm tired and I think I've typed enough for the next few months so right then ...*inches away*

Yes, can't say Reno isn't an easy enough costume, especially since his hair is simular to Die's (DEG). Red mullets rock.

Which version of Dante would you try? DMC 1/2/3? Have yet to see anyone attempt 3, then again the pictures of it came out only a few weeks ago. Its also the most intricate I've ever seen x_x;

Does anyone have any news about where to park for overflow? Last year I parked at the garage across the street, BUT apparently I could not park there for Necronomicon back in October. So is there any other place? I hope there is, since I know it WILL be raining with thunder and lightning like it does every day during the summer in this county.

I'm entering the cosplay (-winks to other said person on board-), though I will not be entering the costume contest. I think I'm going to quit entering those, since its kinda boring and really is it worth not hanging with friends just to 'hope' you get an award?

Well, that and every good costume I'm making now isn't Japanese related, so they wouldn't be able to be entered anyway.

i got my hair just past my eyes now. i think this is the longest i've ever grown it.
the only part i don't like about my costume is that i'm gonna have to shave my legs, because i'm gonna tape them up, and i'd rather not have to take tape off of my legs with hair still one them...oh the pain

Well the FFBall is a little more formal than that, with little skits, more formal clothing and stuff. I've never gone to the Cyberia dances either, so I don't really know too much about that to really make a comparison. But I would assume that Cyberia is more like a "rave" and the ball is more like a "dance". It's not too formal though, don't worry ^-^ I had a lot of fun at the Ball last year....

I'm also planning a panel with a couple of my friends! Its going to be sooooo great!

I'm going to the FFBall on Friday night, too... I was asked by this one guy...but said no. I want to dance with ALL the cute bishis! :dance: lol.

Here's my costume line-up:

Friday: Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky 4th!
Sat: Original catgirl costume (and possible Edward)
Sun: Original Catgirl costume and maybe wear my Edward costume as well.

So if you see a crazy Edward running aorund its me...I actually cut my hair for the costume because I didn't think a wig would cut it. I want to enter the costume contest as the catgirl, but want to do Edward as well...I wonder if I can have them fix it so I can go as the catgirl at the beginning and then as Edward at the end so I have time to change?...hm...lol. Yeah, right. Yes well if you see me, say hi!!! I love meeting strangers! (I'm up for glomps too...Edward likes glomps...Edward doesn't get many glomps...Edward should be glomped more often. I know I look small but I'm strong enough to be glomped, you won't break me, I promise!)

You CAN go in your costume...but it has to be something classy. Nothing too revealing or obnoxious. Going formal, however, would be so much nicer. Here's the link to the FFBall rules website!

The time for the costume contest isn't up on the Metrocon website yet...in fact, everything has been delayed because lightning struck the server and they lost EVERYTHING. Things should be running normally soon, I hope. Here's the link to Metrocon's website:

Just a note!

Amerisuites--one of the overflow hotels--is almost booked! I just called and reserved my room a few minutes ago, and the guy said there were only 12 (well, now 11) rooms left for Friday. Amerisuites is the closest of the two overflow hotels, so hurry up and book!

Also, if you do have a room at the Amerisuites--it is walking distance from the Crowne Plaza. Would anyone be interested in forming a group to walk together there each morning? Hopefully a group will cause less harrassment while in costume. ^^;

I'm just going to say this as a warning to those whom have never attended the Final Fantasy Ball.

All character actors (i.e. Sephiroth, Cloud, Turks, etc) will be 100% in character. Keep in mind, this means that many (especially the male characters, for the most part) will not be as kind as you think. Don't attempt to hug Sephiroth, he'd won't like that. Don't try to flirt with Rufus, or the Turks will have to step in (especially Reno >.>;).

Also, if you wear Final Fantasy 7 character costumes to the ball, you will be treated as a-person-dressed-as-FF7-costume, and not -as- the character.

Those working at the ball will -be- the characters, so keep that in the back of your mind.

Would an Ifrit/Earth Titan/Shiva costume be acceptable for the FF Ball? Some friends of mine are dressing up as these characters, and I do not want them to get kicked out of the ball. They'll be working very hard on these costumes, and they are not revealing, vulgar, nor grotesque.

You wouldn't from the actress who plays Aeris because she [Aeris] wouldn't have a phone number. As for any girl -dressed- as Aeris, that would be up to her.


And no, people dressed as Summons would not be accepted because they wouldn't be dressed formally. We have no summons as part of the cast, which would be the only way they'd be allowed.

This is a formal dance, remember, it is like a prom. Would you wear an Ifirit costume to your own prom? Those costumes are best left to contests/hall cosplay.

Hm...well all sounds good then, I just need to decide if I want to go to the dance or not. X. x I'm not much of a dancer and too stubborn to give it a try, so i'll just be hanging around. :cool:

Who wanted to meet up in the morning at the Amerisuites to walk to the con? Please give me names! And at what time??

Ah yes, costumes...the costume contest being on Sunday really screws my schedule up >.< But I guess it's best, since that's the day I won't be in Artist's Alley.
Friday: Lady Luck Paine
Saturday: Kana (camouflage dress)
Sunday: Lady Luck Paine for costume contest

Speaking of Artist Alley...come visit me at my table! :D

Is anyone else going to be cosplaying as Chii, or has that whole phase died out? lol... I tend to do everything once it's gone out of style for a bit ^-^ I don't know exactly what order I'm doing them in, but I have four Chii costumes, and one Card Captor Sakura costume, plus Sakura from Naruto.... Ugh >.> I'm gonna be changing a lot!!! Luckily one of my Chii costumes is her PJ version, so I'll be wearing that each night while in the vid. rooms, but other than that I really don't know an order yet. I figure "Gatekeeper" Chii or Red-Queen Chii on Fri., Nurse Chii or Kuro Tenshi Sakura on Sat. and either one of the Chii's that I don't wear on Fri, I'll wear on Sunday for a while....Yikes, I think I put too much on my plate -.-

I did, and Kaze as well... x. x That makes three of us thus far. As far as time goes it's up to you two or anyone else I suppose. I don't have a schedule or anything, so i'm not rushed to get anywhere, but I can be. :bigtu:

But hey, we could just snatch people we see around the Amerisuites as we see them too. :rolleyes:

Yes, as many know already... the Crowne Plaza hotel is indeed sold out; though it's nice to know we've got about three different alternate choices us procrastinators(like myself, LoL)can enjoy.

La Quinta Inn & Suites (http://laquinta.com/lq/reservations/property_overview/propertyProfile.do?ident=LQ965&propId=965)
AmeriSuites (http://www.amerisuites.com/hotels/listhotel.php?code=AJTF)
Residence Inn & Suites (http://marriott.com/property/propertyPage.mi?marshaCode=TPASP)

Personally speaking, the LaQuinta and Residence Inn are very nice hotels(I've been to those two before), though I've never tried AmeriSuites. LaQuinta's rooms are more "executive" minded in their style while Residence Inn resembles a mini-household/apartment. Luckily, all three hotels are nearby the Crowne and other stopable areas nearby I-75.

Yeah, the Amerisuites from what the guy told us has like mini-town houses. They are two stories with like a loft up stairs. I guess we'll have to see! ^ ^ Either way, it's not a far walk and hey excercise doesn't hurt.

Today I went by the hotel and did an assessment about the parking situation. Are they going to allow people to park in the commercial lot across the street like last year? It was pretty close and at the same time nearly empty. It's not like those businesses operate on Saturdays or on Friday night. Please let me know ahead of time- the last thing I need is my car towed.

Hey I'm the same way! We should just hang around together! lol. I WILL slow dance, though...and maybe do some ballroom dancing depending on how easy it is.

xD Sounds good. Maybe I can figure out a step or two. At the very least, i'll mingle and get various photos. I can't wait till metrocon, xD I should be able to get photos up for those who can't/don't go, I just bought a new wireless laptop and as long as the hotel is a hotspot I will be able to upload and drop off pictures.

Question here, but I've gotten wind that there will be alot of Castlevania characters on Saturday.

Is this so? I'm only curious as...well...I like Castlevania.

Awesome! I haven't seen a Jam cosplay in person yet.. ^-^ ::gleem:: I love Jam. There needs to be more video game cosplay. Especially SNK characters! I want to see Kyosuke's, Iori's (especially Iori...), anyone from Rival Schools, etc...(Sorry for being so random, lol)

There will be a Castlevania group on Saturday for photos. Either Makio or Luciferette is in charge of it. I will be Sara Trantoul in it.

-Whines.- I originally had Iori planned for Metrocon but ended up cutting my hair. :hafha: But, since Iori basically MAKES the KoF series to me, I definately will be finding time to cosplay him.

Man, Iori is the coolest character under the sun, lol ^-^ I wish you could've cosplayed 'em! I really don't see enough of them around, and when I do, they tend to be "not up to par" if you know what I mean.....Well, at least you know you'll do it someday! I was supposed to cosplay as either Gunner Yuna or reg. FFX Yuna again too, but I also cut and dyed my hair, so I can't do that either. That's not too big of a loss though, since I'm sure there'll be plenty of Yunas arround for everyone ^-^ lol...
