Hello to all those who will be attending Ohayocon 2003, on Jan. 10-12. :) To start off the new year with the first con of 2003, let's kick it off with a nice gathering of cosplay.com members at Ohayocon2k3. A new year, and a new hotel for the location, I don't know what the layout will be, but I'm sure come the weekend we'll find a nice place to gather for the photoshoot. Usually it'll happen where there's the cosplay ml, ACP, cosmen, etc. groups.

We should plan for Saturday, in the early afternoon before the masquerade starts, say.. 2:00pm or 2:30pm. If I don't have my cosplay.com T-shirt on, I'll be wearing a costume this time, since I may enter the masquerade (as a walk-on only) so I want to be in my costume prior to set-up.

Hope to see everyone there in less than a month! Until then, good luck with costumes, x-mas shopping, and more costumes! :)

I'd say as close to the Masquerade starting point as possible, because I will be squeezing myself in a hellish costume which might take longer than planned and hence I will need as much time as possible to prepare and tape myself into the monstrosity... will there be a shoot on Friday too? I'm not sure I will be able to attend a shoot before the Masq and would be /crushed/ not to be part of the (a?) cosplay.com group!

How about AFTER the cosplay? We'll all be in our costumes and nicely de-stressed since the perfomrance will be over :) If we ask nicely we may even be able to commandeer a panel room or something. I'll be dressed as Presea in the white gown on Saturday ...

Do we have cosplay.com badges we can download, a'la ACP and COSP? That would be cool, I suck at stuff like that tho, so if anyone with artisitc ability beyond fabric has something, let me know and I'll add it to my collection!

Rosiel: I'll make sure that I tell you when we're having it, so you don't miss out! ;) Even if I have to kidnap you to do so, like you've done to me one-2 times.. :devil:

If my memory serves me correctly, the last convention I went to that had cosplay photo-shoots AFTER a masquerade was Katsucon 2002, because it was at a large hotel, and most of the cosplayers stuck around in one area to take the group shots.

Ohayocon this year, we had the cosplay ML, ACP, and Cosmen shoots in the hotel lobby Saturday afternoon. After the masqy Sat. night, people disbanded and the hallway outside was pretty crowded to take large group pics. Not sure how the hotel in 2003 is going to be like, so it's hard to say once it's all over if people will stick around for photos afterwards or go change immediately. From what I've seen at cons, most cosplayers wearing hot n' heavy costumes for the duration of the masqy, usually want to get out of them, change & shower, get food, and get ready for the Sat. nite dances & parties. usually (like at Nekocon) if we group together Sat. afternoon when the other groups form, that would be best. :)

As for cosplay.com badges, it's best to PM admin and see what he says, since there was a post elsewhere that he had to close that dealt with something similar to this one.. To this date, with Ohayocon being less than 4 weeks away, I'm not sure if he & Aeris are going or not, so I may be the main spokesperson/ cameraman representin' cosplay.com. ;) I usually don't wear a special badge ( I just write cosplay.com on mine) but primarily to say I'm from c.com, after taking pictures I just pass out the business card. :)

Thank you! My costume will be a pain to get into (walk into, move, breathe, you know the drill. X__X) and I need to be warned in advance so I can /slowly/ make my way to where the pictures will be taken. And me who wanted to spend as little time as possible in this outfit... X__X

> Even if I have to kidnap you to do so, like you've done to me one-2 times..

^_____^ Me? Kidnap? Nooooooooooo.
(Speaking of kidnapping, get ready because you will be kidnapped to take pictures of our group since yours always come out so very nicely!)

I'm not sure if I'll be wearing a costume during the cosplay.com photoshoot, since I mainly wear the t-shirt, but the logo isn't seen when taken from a distance. So I might wear a costume during the photoshoot, it depends on when it is. Still unsure if I'm going to enter the masqy, sit in the audience and watch it, or not watch it and wait until it's over to take cosplayer photos.. :confused:

Rosiel: Always a pleasure to take your pictures, so it's worth getting kidnapped by you & Nicole. ;)

^_^ You guys'll have to give me a second to get some shots, too. As of now I have a new Smart Card for my digital camera, meaning my maximum photo count at dang good quality went from 40 at a time to 653 (ph33r). "Little Miss Kevin Lillard" strikes again! OHOHOHOHOH-*coughhackwheeze*

Hey everyone,

2 weeks from now we'll all be partyin' at Ohayocon to kick off 2003, so until then, I hope everyone doesn't pull out their hair working on those costumes.. :thumbsup: Personally, I want New Year's Eve & Day to get over with, so that Ohayocon will be my way of celebratin' and relaxing for the new year. :skidude:

I'll be getting there early Friday morning, so look for me as Shinji (my con-starter costume) and Pen-Pen :) We might be sporting our Santa Hats, since it's still winter and there might be snow on the ground outside the hotel, even though it'll be past the 12 days of x-mas. Still, it's something new to see. hehe

Good luck everyone with those costumes, and can't wait to see them! :D

I plan to show up in my Asuka sundress... that would be cool. Still not really sure what I'll end up cosplaying, but I'll be there... at least...

Oh, schweet. We can cosplay together for pictures together come Friday morning/afternoon, whenever you get there. :) Just look for me, and I might be wearing my Santa hat, along with Pen-Pen sporting one also ;) It's still winter, and if there's snow on the ground outside the hotel I plan to take some pics and then dash back inside before I freeze my @$$ off.. heehee :thumbsup:

Ohayocon is pretty soon. :) I'm so excited, AND it's on my birthday!

I actually contemplated making an entire new thread about this, but I thought that I'd just make that comment here. :spinner:

I agree X_X;;
i say try to get it closer to the masqu. i dont feel like wearing my costume that long...at least Not the entire thing :B
could it be..-right- before the masqu?
or right after? :B

LOL Which makes it obvious she's in my group and squeezing herself into a hellish costume too! ^__^

> or right after? :B

Doing it around the Masq also means you'll get everyone in their best getups ... and a lot of us need to practise our skits like mad as long as possible too, so time will be short...

Although I still say it might be nice to have one Friday too, to make sure everyone comes.

And as I think about it... maybe, although it pains me to even think it, we should do it after the Masq. I don't think I really want to wander around the convention in my Masq costume before the event as it would ruin the surprise (and the "Uh? What anime is THAT from? O_O" LOL).

If it's early enough before the Masq I might be able to run to the shoot in my hall costume... X__X

Well we might need to do one or two run-throughs in costume, to make sure we don't collide wings on stage... LOL.

Well I am a pain with all my complaining but... can't we have a shoot on Friday? I just saw the schedule and I am already supposed to go through spontaneous mytosis and be in two places at once Saturday afternoon...

Or at least after the cosplay?

> rosiel...maybe somehow we can alter time and appear at two places at once? *lol*

Well I'm doing a little bit better, as I needed to be at three places at once and now I only need two. I'll contact you about the cosplay details....

> I want to go to -- LOTS of cosplay panels andI want to go to them!

Come to my cel painting panel! Well unless you're in the cosplay. X__X Then you're going to the run through.

Basically I (as well as Katan, my lovely assistant) am MIA from 3:00 until the end of the cosplay and would reallyreally want to attend this shoot.
