Well? Any lolitas attending AUSA this year? I'd really love to host a teaparty, but I'm not sure if there are a lot of egl or visuel kei cosplayers coming to ausa...

Anyways, it's been decided that the gathering will be at 7pm on Friday on the upper *Mezzanine* level of the hotel, by the elevators, either by the couches/arm chairs or in an adjacent open area. *please look for a big sign that i'll be holding, lol*
Anyone is invited ~ any type of lolita and jrock/vk cosplays as well as anyone else who's just a fan of the culture or music
I'll have food, but if you'd like to bring some snacks as well that would be great! ^_^

Hmm, okay. Well is 7pm on Friday good?
I'm not really sure where to have it...I couldn't make it to ausa last year cus I got sick, so I don't know the layout of the hotel >_<;
So I'd say the lobby would be good since everyone would know where that is...
hmmm, any suggestions for a place would be helpful ^_^;; otherwise the lobby it is!
I'll make a little sign too...

The lobby's not a very good place for it. It's kinda... well... let's say there's no real room for it. There's furniture and stuff.

A good place would be where we had the card gaming last year. This year the card gaming is in the restaurant area, so the place we had it last year will be vacant. It's on the Mezzanine (aka upper) level, right next to the elevators. There's a couch, and a couple arm chairs, and on the other side of the hallway is this open area that doesn't seem to have any purpose whatsoever short of having an open area. It's a good size for a picnic cloth, and allows a good amount of space for maneuvering around it. While it is not in the direct path of traffic, it is right next to it. It's between the elevators and the event rooms on that level (I think it's video rooms and panel/workshop rooms over there).

Here's an incomplete map (http://animeusa.org/incomplete_map.gif) (it's a work in progress, I haven't done the lower level or even finished the lobby yet) of the hotel's event area. I've put a purple X on the spot I'm talking about.

Yay! Teaparty!

Err, is this strictly EGL or EGL and Jrock? I mean, I'm going to be wearing both but I just want to know which one to wear on Friday.

Designing a sort of EGL variation on a costume. Will that be acceptable?

08-22-2004, 07:51 PM
yeah i know what your talking about it would be cool to have it anywhere on the mezza level so bright and open.

fushigi-chan
08-22-2004, 08:45 PM
Ok great! Thanx for the help with the location! ^_^

Then the official time and place will be 7pm Friday, on the Mezzanine where Darxim described. I'll have a sign so people can easily find the place too ^_^

as for who can come ~ anyone wearing lolita *gothic, sweet, punk, etc* is welcome, as well as anyone in jrock cosplays. Hell, even if you're just a fan of the lolita culture and aren't dressed in it, you're welcome to be there! I'm really not picky and I'd just love to have as many ppl attend as possible =b

lol. *gets on knees and bows to fushigi-chan.begins to cry* I...I...*sniffles* I love the idea!!! ((lol.Im just kidding)) But that sounds like a very good idea to me.At first I was only going on saturday and sunday but youve just motivated me to go on friday as well.lol.You can bet Ill be there and Ill probably be wearing a Hyde or Tetsu costume((from L'Arc~en~ciel)) or Gackt's illumanti costume((you know his skanky leather one.lol.)) but I have not decided yet.I just remember someone on here saying that she went as gackt and this mana stalked her all day and by the end of the day she((the gackt)) was covered in blue lipstick.lmao.But hey are u going to have like tea cups or something???like props?or is it just called a "tea party"?B/c if you need tea cups I have a few and I might be able to bring them.((but its just this little china teacup set I got from this boy who liked me in second grade.lol.but it might still work.I have a tiny tea pot and plates to macth.they have teddy bears on them *smiles*lol.)) If u want me to bring them just say so...but it would look hilairious to see a bunch of egl/jrockers drinking out of teddy bears tea cups.((its actually kawaii.)) I love your idea and hopefully I can meet u at ur teaparty.lol.peace out. =^.^=v

haha, well glad i have convinced ppl to come to the con on friday!! =D
anyways, yeah, it's more just called a teaparty than an actual teaparty...i'll have tea though =b but it's always easier to just have green tea juice boxes, which is what i always bring to teaparties at cons =b
anywho...i'd love if you brought tea cups as props! i think that'd be very cute! i actually have this little tea set w/ teddy bears on it from when i was little! that'd be really funny if it was the same set!! =b who knows
so if you'd like to bring that, that would be great ^_^

I'll try to bring some food if I can. I work at Michael's and we have all that candy-making stuff. I've been wanting to try and make some.

If that doesn't work out I'll just go and buy some nice cookies or something portable for everyone to share. :bigtu:

Oh, and XpunkRikuX, I'll be sure to bring my neo universe tetsu in case I get too lazy to wear Mana or EGL. :)

Can you make those chocolate lollipop things I see on the commericals? *_* heehee,I'm so greedy..

Riji
08-23-2004, 09:25 PM
Hmm, I've never seen those commercials but I can try to make chocolate lollipops in general.

No, you're not greedy, you're just giving me ideas! :p

Got my very first loli dress a few days ago ^^ I hope I can attend! Crossplayers are welcome, I hope? ^^;;

Riji

Crossplayers are welcome, I hope? ^^;;

I'd hope so since I'm being welcomed as Mana and tetsu. :p

Edit: *dies* I so saw your pictures on Metamorphique. You're awesome. I'll welcome you even if no one else does. :bigtu:

If a girl cosplays as Mana, does it count as crossplaying?

fushigi-chan
08-25-2004, 01:44 PM
If a girl cosplays as Mana, does it count as crossplaying?
yeah, i always wonder that...it's basically cosplaying as someone who's already crossplaying...
so i suppose that counts =b

lol...it's too confusing ^_^;;

xiaolong
08-26-2004, 07:01 PM
Haha.. there's plenty discussion on the crossplay forum about what counts as crossplay. I find it too confusing!!

Riji: Thanks! Glad you liked my pics ^^;; I was thinking of wearing the same outfit for AnimeUSA, but I now have a new loli dress heehee

Fushigi: Yay glad I'm welcome ^^

Anything else I should bring? Besides candy I mean.

Hmm, anything you could contribute would be great!
Juice boxes would be nice ^_^ I was planning on bringing green tea juice boxes *since that's easier than tea in cups which tends to spill*, but today I noticed the asian store that used to have it no longer carries it! So I'm forced to improvise a bit...
anyways, any kind of juice or tea or anything in little juices boxes would be great. Even if you only bring a pack of 6 or something, that helps ^_^

Just wanted to post a little reminder to everyone that my egl gathering is still happening! It's at 7pm on Friday on the upper level. I'll make a little sign, but just look for a girl dressed in egl with a big basket of food =b

anyways, hope to see you all there! and I hope I can make a new costume in time >_<;

Well aparantly it looks like I might indeed be going to AnimeUSA but only for Saturday so I'll miss this gathering. ;_; Oh well, maybe I'll see some of you still on Saturday? I'm bringing one J-Rock costume with me, my Shaisuke but he's usually not very recognizable. ^^;

Unfortunately, the hotel took two more rooms away from us (those bastards, everyone should complain), so Magfest had to be moved to the purple X room. They originally had their own room, but the hotel took it away, and now they're in the purple X room. I don't know where to put it, now.

Darxim
10-22-2004, 09:35 PM
Okay! You know I said the EGL Tea Party couldn't be in the purple X room anymore? You should, it's the post directly above this one. Well, that's not true anymore. The purple X room has been reclaimed, and we can have the Tea Party there after all.

*wipes sweat from brow*

I'm 97% ready for this. (http://puppyrush.net/aku/images/tetsubox.jpg)

Do we need to be registered (i.e., pick up our badges) to enter the purple X room?

Darxim
10-25-2004, 05:06 PM
Well, I'll put it this way. Security's not going to kick you out of the tea party for not having a badge. Especially not if I'm there, and I'll be there (although not in EGL garb).

Hey you guys! I'm REALLY sorry for missing the shoot! I got stuck in horrible traffic coming over, and then couldn't get into the room to change into my costume and yeah it was a mess. Then I was gonna try and go find all the lolitas later and hand out some of the food, but my greedy roommates ate it all! >_<
So I'm very sorry. I hope you all had fun without me! -_-;;
