Just out of curiosity who from this board is going to Otakon, and if you are what do you think you are going to cosplay as?

This will be my first time going so I would like to get a feel for what I am up against!

I, my SO and my best friend from college will be there. As a group, we'll be cosplaying 3/5 of Dir en Grey (actually they have agreed to come and be models for me even though they don't really know what they're getting into).

I'll also be bringing another costume or two. My friend will likely wear the Miyu I made for her; my SO does a pretty good Yoji from Weiss Kreuz; and depending on space, I'll probably bring along Magenta Belldandy, my new and improved Nuriko, and/or anything else I get made between now and then.

I will absolutely be there. But I usually don't know what I'm going to cosplay as until 1-2 months before the con.

I just settled on the Katsucon lineup....

01-02-2003, 04:25 PM
yup i'm going ^^ costumes = yuna ffx-2 and yuffie from kh

01-02-2003, 04:28 PM
With Otakon being my first con, I will absolutely be there. This time, for all three days, of course ^^;
I'll be going with a whole lot of friends, who're all in our FF8 group (See: Seeking Cosplayers forum)
15 people in two hotel rooms... fun... @_@;

All I know that I'm gonna cosplay right now is Tidus, Seifer, and SeeD Seifer...

01-02-2003, 04:37 PM
i'll be there!! i have no clue what costumes im gonna bring though, because it depends on what i can get done in time... and otakon is still a while away, so things might change. but im definetly going!

Sakura
01-02-2003, 04:38 PM
I'll definately be there, along with my 2 best friends and I get to drag my sister along for a day. Then we'll hopefully meet up with some friends of mine while we're there ^_^ As for what we're cosplaying... I have NO idea. I'll figure it out in a few months... after Anime North.

Hikaruchan
01-02-2003, 04:45 PM
Still up in the air with me, several members in my anime club are discussing it so as long as get some people to switch off driving with will likely come - I am not doing it all myself like last time. I will be trying to avoid bringing costumes that are big or have props - so the lineup would probably be Miaka & Nuriko, Neherenia & Misa if done, Lady Oscar sans flag, and Snow White.

:::raises hand::: no lizzy at otakon would be like.... ummm.... no lizzy at otakon? : )~ as for cosplay... i have a few ideas for this year. i'm definately bringing my yuna again. i may bring yuna-2... we'll see. i also want to cosplay as jessica from lunar.... we'll see how that goes! : )

lol... i'm still deciding katsu!

Alanna-chan
01-02-2003, 07:23 PM
I'm going, but only Friday and Saturday. I'm gonna be Sailor Mars, and my other one... himitsu desu ^.~ I'll announce it either the monday, tuesday or wednesday before. My friend is gonna be Tasuki, and if my other one from my old school is going, she's gonna be Utena. And I still don't know who my other friend is gonna be. Maybe she can be a giant pocky :D

psythe
01-02-2003, 07:29 PM
I will be at Otakon for the full show. Will have Ramsus for the awesome Xeno group we are having, and my Reno and Chloe costumes as well.

See you there ^_^

Arashi
01-02-2003, 07:31 PM
It's the same with me, it's up in the air right now, but I definitely want to go again! Even though it's a far trek for me (I live in Hawaii), I think it's worth it. And a lot of people I know are going, and I don't want to let them down. =) I may cosplay as Arashi in her school uniform if I go, it's a simple costume. :P

CelesDragon
01-02-2003, 09:59 PM
Definately going, already have the rooms booked. KuroBara and I are dragging about 10 people down for all three days. We've got an Angelic Layer group for a skit on sat, and a YuGiOh! group for one of the other days. We also have a bunch of randoms, like Chobits, Lunar, and FFVIII.

And of course, there will be the obligatory DizzyLizzy stalking. How could we miss such an oppurtunity?!

Sami
01-02-2003, 10:09 PM
I'm definitely there, all three days! As far as costumes, all I know right now are Culgan (Suikoden 2) and Nanami (Utena).. everything else is up for debate.

NeshaChan
01-02-2003, 11:37 PM
I'll be there! But I haven't decided what costumes yet. o_o. Lilka from Wild Arms II is in the works.

krystal1314
01-02-2003, 11:54 PM
I'm going with a bunch of people ^_^ Train ride there is gonna be FUN!
My costumes: Rinoa usual & ballroom, SeeD student, KH Yuffie, and St. Prince student

SailorAndromeda
01-03-2003, 10:16 AM
Well, I have plans to go, but who knows where I'll be come June. We have a room booked though, so that's good.
Not quite sure on costumes, but mot likely:
Someone from Ocarina of Time and Link, Dark Magician Girl from Yu-Gi-Oh!, Kagome, and maybe a Chii outfit.
We'll see when it's closer ^^

Studmaster
01-03-2003, 11:11 AM
I'm not only in. I'm going to be making sure that Otakon 2003 is the Ultimate Otaku Party of the year. Seriously, there is no other con that has me more exicted, and more ready for the Summer to arrive. And this time I will be cosplaying for real. *Laughs evily*

Carmila
01-03-2003, 11:35 AM
So what, Ototou, our room is going to be party central or something?

This will be my first, so I am excited! I broke the news to my mom last night and she is kinda upset with me, but then again, I am an adult. Now I can do what I want.

Plus, it looks like I may bring Carmila, but I don't think it will fit in my luggage! But, I my do the Fanboy Funk Patrol costume with accessories!

smellme37
01-03-2003, 11:41 AM
im definitely going! im probably going to wear the same Auron costume, that i wear to Anime Boston. I may do another costume, but i'll decide closer to the con. I hope i can get some friends to go with me.

Zephyrs
01-03-2003, 11:52 AM
eee! my first Otakon! anyway I'm there all 3 days, as Jet from WA3, Cecilia in her royal Adlehyde dress from Wild Arms, and then Kelvena for the Xeno group..

You're going as Jet from Wild Arms 3?!?!? I'm going to go as Gallows!!!

Rinkun
01-03-2003, 01:10 PM
i'm most definitely going. but i'm not quite sure of what i'm going to be.

if my friends pull through, then we'll have a Naruto group of Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura (tis me).

And i'm going to try to make Chopper's Island King Outfit from the 3rd One Piece movie.

if not, i'll just recycle something from a past con ^^; but we'll see...Otakon's...about 8 months away (but knowing me, those months will go by too fast!)

TyJILDown
01-03-2003, 02:03 PM

Sivil from Macross 7 (Friday)

Michi
01-04-2003, 06:01 PM
I'm most likely going. ^^ I haven't been to Otakon or the east coast at all since 2001, so it should be fun.

Eeeee, wow, WA, WA2, AND WA3 cosplayers?! Heyhey, Jet and Gallows.. you're tempting me to make a Virginia costume.. Stop it. :P I so would.. I was gonna do Alfred first, 'cause it's something supereasy, but if there was a Jet and Gallows *-* Ooooooh.

Um, otherwise, I'm cosplaying Eternal Sailor Venus for a group, and I think Rika from Phantasy Star IV. o_O aaand umm... possibly Faye Valentine.. and stuff... yeah. kay.

Oh, and Oshi? 15 people between two rooms? Been there, done that. XDDD Have fun~!!

I will glomp you though. Either me or one of the others, so keep an eye out. And you're still on for Boston's match, right?

I think we have 5 people going for boston, and 10 right now for Otakon.

You are going to wear ALL those costumes over a three day period? O_O Wow..

Sciguy
01-05-2003, 09:34 PM
is there a record for the number of costumes worn at a single three-day con? If not, then perhaps you should start one! Just get a photo of yourself in each costume with something unique to Otakon 2003 in the background. A sign that says "Otakon 2003 Registration Line Begins Here" would be an example. (A registration badge can't be used because I have a badge from Otakon 2000, but I'd never even heard of anime at the time :p)

Radical Urd
01-05-2003, 10:44 PM
No No look up top it says "Can't deciede, all the ones i like are too reveiling for my partner in cosplay crime, Lizz-e" I have to choose one. I can't make up my mind, all the ones i like my friend thinks is too skanky.
Which ones do you guys think would be cool?

Radical Urd
01-05-2003, 10:48 PM
the top three are the ones i'm really wearing and the last are the ones I couldn't decied on, I already said that "and the last one is undescieded (SP? O_O)"

Tora
01-05-2003, 10:55 PM
I'll be there.. probably as FFX-2 Rikku, and maybe Sango (Inu Yasha) my group hasn't decided yet. If not Inu Yasha I think they're leaning towards Chrono Trigger...

0_o Give it a few months on the costumes, but I'll be there for sure. ^_^

Hikaruchan
01-06-2003, 10:34 AM
Mentioning record costumes worn, my personal record was 8 at Otakon 2001 ;)

Carmila
01-06-2003, 10:52 AM
Wow. I would go nuts! Though I tend to change alot, my record has been 3 at a single con. However, I can say that I have changed 10 times in a single day at a con before.....

katchoo
01-06-2003, 10:56 AM

Ah, I'm so going! Otakon has been my big con for two years now. Not going to it would be like, not having a real summer!

At the moment all my costume plans are up in the air, I know I want to do a J-rock costume, and at least one more but it's so far away I'm still thinking about it. ^_^

So many people from here have gone to otakon! It's kinda creepy, because when I look in the galleries I see costumes that I saw before I knew there was a cosplay.com. ^^;;

Carmila
01-06-2003, 08:38 PM
I know, Katchoo! I may have to leave my Fanboy Funk Patrol guns at home too, unless someone who is driving could possibly take them for me....I know there has to be a way to get them there!

psythe
01-06-2003, 09:12 PM
im taking throwing knife props with me on a flight, ive been told to put them in your check in bags in a ziploc CLEARLY labeled costume prop weapons for *con name here* just so they can see what its for.

Barring that, just fedex them to the hotel right before you leave. :D

Carmila
01-07-2003, 08:52 AM
I am thinking that shipping them might be a good idea. I mean, I don't know how I am going to get everything up there to begin with! That is, if I bring Carmila.

psythe
01-07-2003, 09:04 AM
you MUST bring Carmila ^_^

katchoo
01-07-2003, 09:38 AM

You have to bring this, you must knock fanboys dead with with the most accurate representation of Camrila ever. ^_^

Psyth3: My advice...Fed EX. Paranoia rules the skies now and days. Shipping seems the only way to get things done.

Well, if you want to, you can also pay for insurance if you want to ship out your props. It costs extra, but the money recovered should this happen will at least be something.

psythe
01-07-2003, 11:48 AM
Yeah that was my suggestion as well. FedEx is good about getting them there on time, and also if the total cost of the good comes to under 100.00 then it is automatically covered by FedEx anything over 100.00 and you have to declare.

Carmila

yes.. Wild Arms 3 group goodness - don't mind the crossplaying Jet that will be me :) Now that there's the four playable Drifters, you got to have the Schrodingers. then the prophets and Janus' gang and Beatrice and... yeah this list goes on and on.

I beat WA3 after about 3 weeks. Wow. The soundtrack owns my soul and there's so many cool plot twists.. but I'll remain quiet if you're still playing heh heh heh.

mmm WA3 party... bring hamburgers as a tribute to the original ^^

woooosh. Well... I wasn't going to go, but then my FATHER planned vacation the week of the other con i was suppossed to go to (shoujcon) so i can't make it.
But, as a trade, mom's taking me to Otakon!
As far as cosplay... there are about a zillion things I wanna do, but the only set-in-stone is Lina from slayers. Other possibilities: Rinoa from ff8, Kagura from Fruit's Basket, Canal from Lost Universe, someone from ffx, just don't know who, and Alexiel from Angel Sactuary. SO! One or two of those other costumes will be coming with me. I just don't know what yet. XD

I'm definitely going! Our group of eight is heading out together by eight hour train ride... which we'll probably sleep through. I'm currently working on The Black Waltz 3, so far I've done Fujin(ff8) and Marron. The wings are a pain, they look strange. Oh well.
Hotohori;p

Oh, hell yeah i'm going to Otakon! My car got snowed in for katsucon so I'm surely not going to miss this con for anything! Unless I win the Mega Millions ^ ^ But my costume list is almost final...
- Rose (Street Fighter Alpha 3)
-Allen Schezar (Vision of Escaflowne)
-Echidna (The Bouncer)
-Persocom (Chobits)
-Kurumi( Steel Angel Kurumi)

Hopefully I'll have some high quality costumes to rock, and money left over to eat...

I'm going to Otakon-- in fact, this will be my first year there NOT on staff. I actually staffed my first anime convention ever... and was amazed, when I finally got to Katsu two years ago, at how much free time you have at a con when you aren't on staff~!

And I'm going to be Apple again, because I'm very attached to this character and this fandom, and the costume worked out well, so I'll keep doing it 'til I have a new character that I absolutely have to do instead. Maybe for a long time. ^^;

Egyptian Yuna? That is a new one!

I am still trying to work out what I am going to cosplay for Otakon. It all depends on how much room Carmila takes up!
