Well I really want to go to Conclave, but I might not be able to fork out the extra $40.
(However if you see a mullato Rabi~En~Rose running about witha sign that says "Save the bunny-Girls!" please say "Hello"!)
Either way I'm going to the Motor City Comic Con.
(Same deal about the greeting.)
I was just curious who all was going.
(I've asked like 85 people and everyone is all "Well.. Maybe.")
I'll still be going as Rabi~En~Rose due to the fact I'm poor. =^_^=; If you're going as a DiGi Charat character I'll give you pocky (Strawberry or Chocolate). =D

EDIT: I just talked to my boyfriend on the phone & we don't have a way to get there. =-__________-=

I'm right around the corner from Novi so I'll be there :) What day(s) do you plan to go? Usually with most cons, Saturday is the most active with stuff to do, people to meet, etc. but as there's still a little while until the event, I'll see how many days I can squeeze out to go.

Btw, welcome to the board PinkDecay! It seems like we get new members here every week or two. (A good thing!) Feel free to contact Daguru, as he's also in the Ann Arbor area.

Please make sure that EVERYONE takes pics!!

I will definately be at MCCC... Don't know about ConClave. I mean I could I only live 30mins from where they're holding it this year. :)
I can't wait to go to MCCC. Our Hellsing group is better than ever. Ceres' Harkconnan is 8ft tall and weighs 30lbs... So we're really looking forward to going! :love: Can't wait to see everyone.

Tuesday? The Con is on Saturday. :: Confused ::

I think we should all meet in the Anime room, at like 2:00 PM. (Because my boyfriend is working there, and he won't be done 'til 2) Someone should have a big "Cosplay.com" sign, and we can take pictures, and things.. I don't know what though. Pizza is a good idea.

<Costume Update>Everything is ready for my Rabi~En~Rose Costume except the Dice & Ears! (They're both about 50% completed.) The wig was a pain in the ass though.</Costume Update>

Woot, more people! 2pm sounds good... I hope to be there a bit before that, even with my late standards lol. Look for the Link (or for everyone else for that matter). ^^

venus2869
10-14-2004, 12:29 PM
Well, I would say about after 2 since most of us do work & it may take a bit of time to get there. If someone could make a "CosMich" or Cosplay.com sign that would be great!

And, there is a Buffalo Wild Wings right out there too! But if peeps are strapped for cash, there's a Wendy's not too far from the expo center.

For those of you taking pics and such, please post ASAP!! My evil workplace STILL won't let me have it off, but I'm still working on it! ;)

10-14-2004, 12:53 PM
Okay everyone, it looks like the meeting time is 2pm on Sat but what about a meeting place? I've never been there myself so I have no clue whatsoever where anything is.

Also right now I'm hoping to get a roll-call of who is going to MCCC this weekend and also a list of who is planning on going to either ConClave(Lansing) or AR(Chicago) next weekend.

venus2869
10-14-2004, 01:44 PM
The video rooms were suggested as the meeting place. They are located in the back, towards the left of the center. They will be listed on the map for the con, as well as signs pointing to them. Please make sure you guys get a group shot!!!

Sailor Kikyo
10-14-2004, 03:13 PM
I've been, but I onder is everything is in the same place..I'm gonna be walking with a bunch of my friends, but I'd love to take pictures! Just scream out Miwako and I'll answer^^ I'll be there prolly earlier than two. My bro my be link, if the costume is finhsed then..tghe hat and the tunic are almost complete *runs to finish them*

The-Real-Link
10-14-2004, 04:07 PM
Coolness, another Link! :) Wait...they have video rooms now?!? Yes, I read their website but still... o.O

Guess that shows just how long it's been since I've last gone XD. But the 2pm time does sound like a good plan.

I'm looking to go to Conclave the following weekend, so I'd also like to get in touch with anyone else going, so as to take care of room(s) or travel, for a car I have not :(

Scrapps
10-14-2004, 04:14 PM
2pm? Good! I don't have to wake up early. I might be a little late, only because I have never been there either and I have this crazy idea that I will be wandering around looking for the video rooms. So just outside of them?

I'm scared already >_<

I'm very excited about MCCC~! I got us another Crazy 88 for the Kill Bill group; in fact we're going tonight to get his suit and stuff. (Yes, Catboi, I FINALLY got Dan to go~! MWAHAHA~! I told him you said he had to, as well.) Not to mention, now I won't have to drive alone. ^^
I have to say, I'm excited about being Elle. :nod nod: I wanna bring my Silent Hill 3 Heather costume, too, methinks just to get some photos. I don't have any of me in that one. ~_~
To Sailor Kikyo - BE PREPARED TO BE GLOMPED!!! I heart Miwako~! *^_^* (Elle X Miwako....? I may have to ask someone to take pictures of that one....) ::insert evil tee-hee here::

Wasn't sure if I'd be going to MCCC (found it rather boring last year), but I think knowing people there will make it more fun, so I'll be there. :) Dunno yet if I'll cosplay; if I do, it'll be as Scott from the webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del.

I'll be at Reactor too, since my parents living close to it makes it simple for me to travel out and stay there.

I'm thinking about going as my original X-Men character, Lily, so.. yeah.. that's like a "normal" costume.. >< damn the fact I don't have an extra day to work something out.

Just wondering if anyone else plans to attend on Sunday as well? I know I can't due to a meeting, but I should be there the entire day Saturday. The website shows con hours as being 11-6.

Catboi Blues
10-15-2004, 08:13 AM
So Saturday at two by the video room. I'll determine if its worth going to on Sunday while I'm there. Odds are though I'll probably be home on Sunday sewing.

If someone could bring a big Cosplay.com banner it would be excellent.

I just learned yesterday of some leadership conference I have to attend on Saturday (grumble), and I have no idea when it'll end (starts at 11am). So, barring an early finish, I doubt I'll be able to go to MCCC, since by the time I get there I'd have lost half the day (I'd rather be there than at some teamwork-building workshop, that's for sure).

So to all those who go, have fun and share the pictures!

I think it would be better to wait until 3, or hang out there until then?

Since my group(without me) will be leaving my place at that time. If not, can someone make sure that we all attend the costume contest(that's of course if some of us are entering it)? That would be a good place for a secondary meet-up.

Catboi Blues

I wanted to meet earlier too. I'm going to be there the entire day. I've got the Cosplay.com poster, so I guess I'll just post in front of the Anime\Video room with the big sign.

I think we should keep the original Meet Up time, (2:00) and about 15 minutes after that, snag some food.

What do you say, people?

It closes at 6?! Dang! I remember it closing at 8... then again, I haven't worked there in 2 years... @_@ Yeah, I'm up for meeting earlier... and staying later!
I think we should do something after, too. What about hitting up Ann Arbor? We can go to Pinball Pete's and get Bubble Tea. Para Para and DDR~! (and all that other crap they have XD)

I plan to be there most of the day, so whatever time is alright with me. I think we should stick with 2 though since this was almost set. Maybe we can come back and meet at 3 or when Venus's group gets there? Somehow I don't see us having a huge problem finding everyone, but I'm sure it'll work out.

Agreed!!!

Offical meet up information: Saturday, 2:00 PM, Anime Room. Look for the Rabi~En~Rose with a big sign which reads "Cosplay.com / CosMic".

If you get confused a the con, look for me. I'll be easy to spot. On the back of the "Cosplay.com" sign, it says "Save the Bunny Girl!" and I'll probably be toting it about with me. (And if by some odd chance there's another Rabi there, I'll be the one that's half black.) Please say hi to me. I'll be very lonely by myself. =^_^=;;

Ok, but if you guys can try to hang out there a bit, maybe to like 2:30 - or till 3, that would be great. That will give them enough time to get there and meet with ya.


Also, since I'm stuck at work, feel free to stop by! It's "2 can dine" night, and with the "supposed" rush, I could use the support. Have fun everyone & take lots of pics!!

I saw Link, and took a picture of him^---^ I was the one with the pink hair nd dress and Yuki in her claevage. I was a pink prodigy, running around and spazzin Sadly, I don't think if Miwako was even on crack she would have acted the way I did :square:
SO MANY CHIBI COSPLAYERS! The FF X-2 group was really cute, and their cosplays were really good! I took pictures of them :heart: :heart:

Pink Decay, your Rabi was so cute^0^ I adored it.

Oh, and Maria, my Quitis, was amazed by the Hellsing group. She <3333ed them :love:

Hello everyone! It's good to see that quite a few people came and that we found most of everyone. It's too bad that plans were shuffled to the mid-afternoon (as well as my inability to attend any post-con gatherings) but the time together was still very fun.

Thanks to Daguru for his prop fun ^_^.

I also can't thank Catboi enough for his continued assistance with the gear. You did nothing but helped me half the time it seemed like so I hope you had a chance to enjoy yourself. It's very much appreciated :)

Sailor Kikyo - Awww! It's good you got to see me but why didn't you say something?! You could have gotten a free glomp XD It's ok though, I had just gotten in at the time and was still looking for everyone.

Finally, pics will come soon (most likely later Sunday due to prior engagements). They all turned out good! Hope everyone had a good time, and it was great to see everyone again.

Hey everybody! For those of you.. ::Glares at the one:: who were so upset at my pink font color, I give unto you plum. But it actually isn't plum.. It's definately more of a lilac. Oh well... Me and my colors.. or is it.. My colors and I. ::Shifty eye glance::
ANYWAY! It takes me a while to get to the point. It was so nice meeting a lot of you at MCCC...(Did I get that right?) Just check my gallery to see what I look like if you can't put a face to a name, or an actual face and a name to a username/avatar... Which I am finding hard to do... CatboiBlues is Morgan... That's the only one I can figure out... So if you saw me there, ( I was wearing purple, like my font.. Aren't I so appropriate? I think I was.. Yes, I was, wearing lilac underwear as well... ) .....Yes, So if you met me there, It'd be much appreciated if I could put some usernames to names to ... ::Cries:: It's so confusing! DAMN IT!!! (Weiss Kreuz Outtake) ...See, I just keep blabbering/blubbering and I can go on for a long time if no one stops me.. Where the hell is Amy when you need her? Oh well, (Most) All of you guys were really nice! I hope I can go to more cons besides JAFAX this year, ^^" Oh, I'm not sure if she's on the board, but You're so cool Darcy!

SeekingElegance: it was nice to formally meet you and I hope that you had a fun time. Sorry that things kind of went astray from how everything was originally planned but I hope that you had fun none the less.

BountyBebopLuv and PinkDecay: It was good to finally meet the two of you in person.

SailorKikyo: So that was you with the Kyo plushie. Then yes, I saw you too.

Well, MCCC is just about over for this year with ~2 hours left of it. Hopefully we'll have a better turnout for our next gatherings. Now its time to focus on the upcoming weekend with both ConClave and Anime Reactor. There are a few of us looking to travel to Chicago for AR but for those looking to go to a function this weekend I recommend staying a bit more local and going to ConClave. Its a good con and I know that I had some fun last year. So now the question is who is going to what?

Also, thank you CatBoiBlues it was nice meeting you too. (Although, I will admit you seemed a bit lethargic.)
Scrapps - I love your sword. =^_^=;;
Sailor Kikyo - I think I saw you in the eating area thingy. You should've said hi to someone! But it's okay, we forgive you.

Maybe I'll post some kind of a con report for Conclave, as I know besides Telka, I was the only member of our main group to have gone. Pics will probably some sometime in the next week, as I have to try to correct for quite a bit of blurriness, and also finish a PHL midterm (read: paper).

Suggestion: How about having a separate thread for each convention? There are quite a few of them, and soon this thread could become as unwieldy as the "Looking for any cosplayers" thread. There will probably also be times where discussion about them will overlap, so it'd be nice to filter out North when reading about ACen, for example. And the appropriate ones could be made into a Sticky at the relevant times, instead of continually changing the title of the thread. We have our own forum now anyway, so we might as well take advantage of it.

Catboi Blues
11-18-2004, 12:34 PM

For people going to Ohayocon, who is registering???? Or is registered already?? I'm just wondering cause I don't know if there's something special in registering or not, lol

The-Real-Link
11-18-2004, 10:30 PM
I know usually if you register in a group of 10 or more that there is a group discount. Other than that, I don't believe anything else is different. A few people were already considering group registering but we'd need to make a head count for that to see if we have enough interest.

I think when we went this year it was about 4.5 to 5 hours. It was smooth sailing save for one wrong turn in the downtown area, but other than that it's one of the easier cons I've been able to go to. Last year had good weather going but a snow storm delayed our return home by quite a few hours. We just took it slow and made it back fine.

Jeez Link, you sure have a knack for understatement...
I had to drive the van all the way back through that, and i'm not even sure is MagusT could see anything beyond the snow I was kicking up . that was like the worst weather I've ever driven in, in the worst possible vehicle for it.

The-Real-Link
11-22-2004, 03:08 PM
*sighs* I was just trying to be slightly optimistic. Not that I can't agree the driving was horrible, but saying we had the worst driving experience ever due to weather isn't exactly a great confidence builder. Sorry, I'll be a little more exact next time. People are still usually good drivers, it's just the weather got really nasty this year.

Actually I'm forgetting. That was Ohayocon 4 earlier this year was it not? Did you guys go to any of the other Ohayocons (I think Catboi said he went) and had equally lousy weather? I can only gauge off of one trip.

I make it down in about 3 1/2 hours from the Pontiac area. Normally I drive non-stop early in the morning to make good time. As for the weather, Its winter time in the mid-west, anything can happen. No costume? So what! Go anyhow and have a good time. Ohayocon is really nice. Big enough to keep you busy, but not overwhelming.

However, I do promise to bring taiyaki to the con :D ! I've been experimenting with my taiyaki mold and I think I got it down pat. I just need to come up with other cool ingredients besides sweet bean paste and peanut butter (I've heard of green tea, but how would that even work?)

Ohayocon now has PayPal registration! And from now through December 16th, the cost of that registration will be $30, which is the same as the Group Rate ^.^

However, if you don't have a PayPal account, they ask you to sign up quick, as it may take up to a week for PayPal to register you.

I still have lots of stuff to do cosplay-wise ;.; Everything left I'll make in order of potential completeness, so I picked up some random light green shirts since my Reki vest has the least potential for completion. Anyway, I'll be wearing a Tohru (Fruits Basket) pin in addition to my con badge, so if you see me say hi and introduce yourself if I do not recognize you ^^;

This Ohayocon seemed to be the best con experience so far for me, as everything went pretty much according to plan: no huge amounts of snow, schedule of events available beforehand, and staying at the con hotel. Fun fun fun. Also, lots of improvements, like the bigger dealer's room and moving main events to the convention center (because the walk is worth it!)

Anyway, I've uploaded my pics to my gallery, so you can see them there. As for my next con, i'll have to see what's doable, since ACEN is out of the question ( I hate coflicts :waaaah: ). I'll be looking at conventions between May and August, within driving distance of less than 10 hours.

Well, I'm, or at least, my artwork is at ConFusion.

KatsuCon is out of the question for me. Look, rightnow, I've little respect for Virginia-based cons. They have a bad habit of being utterly mismanaged. The Artists Alley info was never even available on their website (they put it up in the forums? WTF?) So instead that weekend, I'll be taking in Furry Weekend Atlanta instead. The AA may be first-come-first-served, but at least I know the money will be worth it.

And MCCC? No dice. T-Mode might be that weekend, or Anime Central. And I'm tired of setting up shop there for naught. MCCC has devolved into an utter cretin-con. You got people buying a day ticket, walking through the dealers, making a beeline through the artists alley, buying $400 worth of Ewok autographs in the back and then walking straight out. Not worth it for me.

For the rest of my con schedule (tentative) check out my homepage at http://www.furnation.com/BAR-1 in the "411" section

I hate to double post like this but I need to let those involved know that there is a large chance that I won't be attending Katsucon this year. A very good friend of mine just died the other night and I don't know what the funeral arrangements are yet. Even if it was this weekend, I don't think that it would be fair for me to take off for a con just like like while still in mourning and for the driving part alone I would probably be a hazard. But as I said already, the chances of me going are extremely slim. I probably won't be online much for the next few days. You understand.

Same here ^^. Oh and I didn't know that the sickness put you in the hospital prior to Confusion, Morgan. Did you edit that? Anyway moving on...

You have my warmest sympathies now for all that's happened. Please know you can reach me anytime to talk, and that you'll be in my prayers.

Oops....sorry for the double post but I wasn't sure where to put this in.

*runs in and gasps* Terribly sorry for being late and not uploading frequently, but my Ohayocon 2005 coverage is finally done! Sure I know there are a lot of photos of what I did (forgive me for breaking in a new camera), but I know I got a lot of our SE Mich group in too. I'm sorry if I missed anyone in particular or didn't get many photos. Just let me know and I can do more come next con.

Thanks for being patient!

Hm... well, I'm intersted in going to Tekko, 'cause it looks like I won't be able to get anything planned for NoBrand, and I want to do one full weekend con in April other than Penguicon, which is a 2-day-er.

So yeah, I'm on board for Tekkosho, once I get all the details from Morgan, I'll be able to toss my Taurus into the mix once again, which means, instead of 8 people in 2 cars, it'll be 9 people in 3. Leaves a little extra space, ne? That'd also put me as 6th in the room... Now all I need to do is go on a Kinko's bender to produce new stickers & portfolios.

Catboi Blues
04-14-2005, 11:11 AM
Well, Tekko is behind us now(hopefully) and now we can look towards the future. As things happen, if you're looking for something local to sate your con-going needs then Penguicon is this next weekend at the Novi Sheraton. Its a fun little con with quite the variety as its a Sci-Fi con and Linux Expo(As ND put it, "Linux IS Sci-Fi") as opposed to an Anime or Comic con. Also the reg is worth it for the con suite alone, but there is also a lot to do there and the video programming is almost all Anime. Aside from that there is also a dealers room with lots of stuff that you won't see at an Anime con and a masq that's not all FMA or FFX-2. :thumbsup: I'll be there most of the weekend myself and I believe Maguis T should be there as well. Also we'll have a table for Youmacon there(yay!). Can I interest anyone in attending?

04-15-2005, 02:34 PM
Hmm....a con that won't have 100 underage Yunas running around...sounds interesting!

bar1scorpio
04-19-2005, 01:44 PM
Hokay-

Well, I'm intersted in doing Penguicon, of course, I'll probably be commuting, unless I can find someone to crash with for a couple of nights, or just be hanging out.

Couple that with the fact that T-Mode got postponed (of course) again, so that weekend in May is free. Of course there's no space at Anime Central's Artist Alley by now, so I'll probably finagle something at MCCC (sigh). And continue to Anime North from there.

I was going to just briefly say that although I am aware of the past quality of AN's con, I would still like to consider going because several friends are going whom I'd like to hang with/meet. I'll just have to run it by my mom and see if the monies are there.

04-30-2005, 03:05 PM
Most people will not be at MCCC as ACEN is the same weekend this year(as it was two years ago). As for AN, I'm still debating whether or not I want to make that commute or not.

Then again I'm not sure quite how many people are going just yet anyway. If we're actually out of room then that'd be the first time I've heard about it.

As you can see by my sig, I'm also going to JAFAX ^^:

I was reading the Ikasucon thread in "Other Cons", and people there are thinking of wearing a purple ribbon to ID themselves as being from the boards. Don't know if anyone wanted to do that. While I know most of the people who meet on Thursdays, there may be others from this boards I do not know.

Also, I can't correlate names to avatars! I might end up making myself a photo-directory, so if I see you at JAFAX, could I take a picture?

I wonder if I'll be able to finish my skirt in time...

Yep! Ikasucon will be my "poor man's ACEN" (or would that be, consolation price?). It's my first year attending, and I've heard great things about it. The boyfriend, Tom and I will be staying at the hotel, and I hope to cosplay Genshiken and finally enter my Yukari into the masquerade. I also love that they'll be showing Anime Hell/Midnight Madness there as well ^.^

Of course I'm not gonna let it stop me. Hopefully it's one of those freak flash fevers that only lasts a day or two. Serves me right for working on my cosplay until 2am for two days. I'll get into Ikasucon even if I sleep the whole way there!
