So, are you already planning? What costume will you wear? Who is all going? What are you hoping for the convention this year?

i plan to go...i think i'll cosplay a member of l'arc en ciel from the smile cd^^, hyde from laruku's STAY AWAY PV, one of the female battle royale students, and possibly mana or a gothic lolita... but i still have time to decide.

Gah! Too far away for me to even begin thinking of it.
*lie!*
I'll probably pack along Inuyasha and I plan on having Shiek from TLOZ:Ocarina of Time done and hopefully a few others that I'm still deciding on whether or not to make....

You know, I wish I could have told this to you when I seen you at OhayoCon this year.. but you're the best Chii I've ever seen. o.o


But, on to the subject at hand! I plan to go. I love OhayoCon, even though this past year wasn't too wonderful for me.. but I am going. I hope to bring Amila from Magna Carta: Crimson Stigmata and I'm sure I'll come up with other costumes as well. I'm sure it's going to be a HTK theme for me next year, lol.

Well, I'd love to go, but that'll be a bit hard seeing as I'll be in Japan and all (haha! JET....) So I guess I'll just have to check out fansview and the galleries here to see what everyone comes up with.

I had a blast at Ohayocon this year. I'll be going back for sure. It's too far off to have any idea what costumes will be worn.

Maybe Ill go, if I can figure out travel and room plans. I dont know if the bf would want to tag along for next year, and I surely wouldnt want to go alone.
Ive got a buncha costume plans comin up, so if I do go, Ill surely be all set with that.

i'm going to attempt to come in 06; couldn't come this year because; up until febuary, I was supposed to be going on a trip to Rome; I stepped out of the trip too late to attend either Ohayocon or the other con I wanted to go to; Katsucon.

Not sure what costumes I'll have; I've got a lot on my list, but if worst comes to worst, i'll be wearing my Luffy costume that I plan to wear at AN this year.

I have had a blast everytime I have went, so of course I am going to be going back in 06. ^_^ I think I will be cosplaying/crossplaying some more characters, then I have been. There are so many to choose from, although I hope to crossplay suichi shido from gravitation, in his concert attire. I should be going as Hikaru from magic knight rayearth, but I may change what outfit I do, since I am also going as her to Ikasucon. Chibiuas, I hope to see you there again this comming time around. I know we did not see eachother much lastime, but I did get a pic of you with a paper hat on. XP

Bobbi
04-21-2005, 01:36 PM
I shall be back next year as well! ^_^

I don't know what I'll be wearing. I may make a Misha though. I really want a Misha costume of doom!

Splenda
04-21-2005, 02:31 PM
Alas, like ArsenalFierce13, I won't be able to make it to Ohayocon because I'll be in Japan as well. Yeah for studying abroad! I love Ohayocon, it's definitely my favorite, so I expect to see lots of great costumes and pictures!

(On a sidenote, where in Japan will you be ArsenalFierce13? I wouldn't mind knowning more people in Japan for my year there! It'd be really cool to have a fellow American cosplayer to hang out with!)

04-21-2005, 04:44 PM
It looks as if I'll be going next year. *excited* I'm a Minnesotan, but I'll be attending college out there starting next year. (woo!) I'll probably be dressed in some sort of Ami/Sailor Mercury outfit and possibly some of my older costumes like Utena.

*BLUSH* oh my gosh, thank you *^____^* lol you just made my day!!

And NecromanticChii, yes!! We'll have to make sure we get to see each other!! lmao the paper hat... my friend stuck it on my head and I forgot I was wearing it XD EEE and I bet your Hikaru will be beautiful *___*

04-23-2005, 01:48 PM
I'll definetly be there! I don't know what I'm going to cosplay yet.. I really want to go as Kevin Mask, and have my girlfriend be Lord Flash.

I'll probably stick to Laharl though. (And possibly Mars if Recowa goes as Jeager)

I'm planning on going. It will be my first time there. Can anyone tell me when a good time to reserve a room would be? I know it's like a year away, but I don't want to miss out. One of the Hotels for Otakon sold out before they even posted it after all!


As for cosplay I'm not sure, but I hope to go as Umi from MKR. I'll probably pack my Yoko Kurama costume and my Suzaku No Miko ones. After that I'll have to see what fits. :)

Yumeko
04-26-2005, 10:48 AM
My boyfriend and I too shall be back at Ohayocon. It was a super blast for both of us, but I will not say which costumes I am bringing this time ;)

Ayvina
04-28-2005, 06:56 AM
I'm once again going to attempt to go. I tried to go this year, but I got really sick and all my money went to paying off hospital bills, so hopefully in Jan. 06 I won't get sick again and I'll be there. ^^

As for costumes, I'll be working on a Lolita outfit, but other than that I haven't decided if I'm gonna do a new cosplay, or do something I already have. ^^; Time will only tell ^^

NecromanticChii
04-28-2005, 07:48 AM
I will try to make a new outfit for 06, but time and money will be little and hard to come by. ^_^

I'll be moving to Berea Ohio for college, so I'll definitely be heading down for Ohayocon with a good friend of mine who lives in Springfield. *excited*.

I don't know for sure, but I'll definitely be bringing my Blue (Wolf's Rain) and Hanmyo (Outlaw Star) costumes. I may drag along Black Mage Yuna (if I can fit into it again) and a new one if I have the time to make it.

I'm so excited, this is going to be my first year at Ohayocon and there always seems to be amazing guests and concerts happening. Can't wait to go and meet everyone. ^_^

^_^ Eee! I'm working on getting together a group of Outer Senshi for Ohayocon right now- I'm going as Super Sailor Neptune for sure and I know I can convince my 'Ruka to go as Super Sailor Uranus (she's not so pleased with the short skirt thing right now though...) ^^;; Yay for Inner Senshi too!! :D Ya~y!

marsie
05-01-2005, 11:41 AM
I shall have Neo Princess Neptune there. And PGSM Mars as well. ^_^

Not sure what else. Maybe my Yui, but it is awful cold.

Since I am the Cosplay Coordinator this year. I am hoping to have some good costumes to showcase.

I would say that the best time to reserve your room, would be asap. ^_^ As long as they will honor the conrate, if they do that this year. Umm, actually midsummer should be fine. Heck I did not get my room reserved lastyear untill october.^_^ And let me know if you do decide to go as Umi, maybe we could start a MKR group. My boyfriend might be going as Lantis, and I as Hikaru, so all we would really need is Fuu. (then some others. ^_^)

Are you planning on going to the EGL tea party on Sunday at Otakon? SakkaRosette and I will be wearing our Chii and Freya costumes to that. You should come with! ^_^

Oooh..so staff will actually be allowed to dress up this year? I'd hate to not be able to wear anything on Saturday!

KnuxieChan
05-02-2005, 12:43 PM
Hmm, I'm thinking of maybe going as Dream. I highly doubt my parents are gonna let my gf come with me.. >_< (And Kevin and Croe are incredibly hard costumes..) Ah well, we'll see when it gets closer.

05-02-2005, 02:03 PM
Well, Ohayocon is a tradition for me, but unfortunately I don't think I'll be attending next year. If I do go, I'll be going to cosplay and hang out in the halls, and I will not be paying for registration. They may stop me from going in the rooms, but they can't stop me from cosplaying and walking in the halls. If I pay admission at all it'll only be for Saturday so I can enter the cosplay. I don't care how much I loved Ohayocon, which was very much, they're not getting a penny of my money. It's been ruined for me, and next year will show whether or not it's been ruined entirely. I'm thinking the answer is yes. I just can't believe that so many people are still so oblivious.

*waits for someone, not naming any names *cough*, to freak out on me*

Miyabi-
05-02-2005, 04:06 PM
I didn't enter the cosplay contest last year (I'm totally intimidated by entering big cons cosplay contests) but I know for sure that a lot of things are in works for improving it next year and that the staff is going to try their best to give everyone a good experiance and hey, that's really all we can do is try our best. ^_^

AH!! That would be much fun <3<3 I'll try to make it ^.^ lol maybe even whip something EGL-y up to wear :D

Ne, Laurachama, you must come to at least cosplay for sure *glompage* ;__; LMAO I'm oblivious to all the goings-on XD

05-02-2005, 08:32 PM

05-02-2005, 10:44 PM
I'll definately be back with most of my group once again, but our Rockman theme has disappeared in lieu of a new obsession. ^_^() We're doing the Jak and Daxter series instead, so we'll definately stick out of the crowd.

And we should have our art table back as well.

NecromanticChii
05-03-2005, 07:55 AM
I was thinking of makeing my boyfriend be demon chrono. He siad that he would possibly cosplay it, but makeing the wings will be the trick. lol

No, but I have been thinking about it. I know how to work with wood, so I thought about using that, but then I thought about how heavy it would gewt after a while.

05-03-2005, 06:50 PM
Hells yeah for Chrno Crusade! I"ll be there as kid Chrono and I'll have SakkaRosette with me as militia version Rosette!

As for the box thing.....I refuse to lug it around all day..lol. I'm just gonna have a handgun. ^_^

EdNChrnoFanGurl
05-04-2005, 05:53 AM
LOL Miyabi

I have a box that I got my Jack Sparrow doll in that's pretty big. XD

NecromanticChii
05-04-2005, 07:47 AM
lol, I would have to say, that I know where you are comming from, when you say you dont want to lug it around. It would get tiring, and annoying to carry for a long time.

EdNChrnoFanGurl
05-04-2005, 02:05 PM
No kidding! lol at least it's a light box. I could keep my stuff in it! :D

05-05-2005, 02:45 PM
Nice!
I'd thought of making the box thing out of a storage box...just cut slits into the bottom of it and thread some straps through, spray paint it green and voila!

Sakka and I are trying our hardest to get my cousin to come and go as Azmaria...lol

EdNChrnoFanGurl
05-05-2005, 03:17 PM
I'm gonna find one of our old phones and attatch it to the side somehow. Straps should be easy. I KNOW my friend's gonna have me carry everything lol

NecromanticChii
05-06-2005, 02:47 PM
I was thinking of Rosette. I would suggest yardsales for the phones. The only thing I cant figure out is Chrono's wings when he is in demon form. Although I should actually look at the pics, mangas, anime..... So that I can figure it out. (I am sure I will probally be going as Chii, or Freya from Chobits. Lacus Clyne from Gundam seed,Kaoru from Kenshin, Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth, Ban Mido from get backers, and possibly Suichi shindo from Garvitation) That is if I have enough time to do all of them, and some new cosplays.

Recowa
05-18-2005, 08:23 PM
I'll definetly be there! I don't know what I'm going to cosplay yet.. I really want to go as Kevin Mask, and have my girlfriend be Lord Flash.

I'll probably stick to Laharl though. (And possibly Mars if Recowa goes as Jeager)

^.^

So far Im planning on attending the Ohayocon 6. I will be hopefully doing these costumes..or choosing from them..XD The one's with the stars Im working on now.

*Kos-Mos 1st costume from Xenosaga 2
*Jeager from Ultimate Muscle
*Serph from Shinmegami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga
I might just bring my costume of the lead character from Suikoden 4 ya know the silent character..^.^
Im thinking about Kadaj from Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children

NecromanticChii
05-19-2005, 08:39 AM
I can't wait untill I get to see the Kos-Mos costume. I think it will be great, ^_^

Recowa
05-19-2005, 08:34 PM
I can't wait untill I get to see the Kos-Mos costume. I think it will be great, ^_^

It's going to be great, I already started on that one, but In making the costume Piece by Piece. Most people just make the costume as one whole leotard. :thumbsup:

NecromanticChii
05-21-2005, 12:31 PM
really, I have only seen one person cosplay Kos-Mos. ^_^ and that was at Ohayocon 05.

Iris13
05-21-2005, 01:20 PM
OOo, I want to go sooooo bad! :heart:
But I live all the way in Illinois, so it'll take alot of persauding to make my friend and/or friend's parents drive us al lthe way down there two years in a row!
Even though I love Chicago... Ohayocon rocks. I have to make it there T_T
I wanted to go as Gothic Kagome [Inuyasha0 or (if that doesn't work out) Sakura [Naruto]. And, if Scott Mcneil is going, I have to bring my Femme Scott MCneil costume! XD

NecromanticChii
05-24-2005, 08:25 AM

omgsh. You were the best Chii I have ever seen. I took Like 18 gazillion pics of you. sadly, each and every one of them was stolen from me. **tear tear** but, you should be proud you inspired my costume for this year. My friend and I are going as Chii and Dark Chii because everyone says we look the same.yay. I hope to see all people there! lets make it more fun than last year, and the year before that!!!! lol..later

I'm working with all my magical powers to get myself to Ohayocon 06... whether it be by Bus, Ride with friends, or teleportation... I shall go!

I only have one outfit as a definate, and that's my Kirara costume.. http://www.deviantart.com/view/19483626/
I'm really psyched about it! I want to get started on it ASAP...

Me and my friends might be dressing up as our ninja alter ego's! I'm the infamous GLITTER NINJA, my other friend is the Duct tape ninja, and the rest are still thinking about who to be.
We'll either be carrying signs, or otherwise getting word out, that Glomps and Hugs are encouraged! ^_^ :thumbsup:

I'm trying to get a cosplay together, but I need 8 people in order to have it to be completed. I also need people to cosplay certain things, which seems hard...x.x;;;;;;; but I'll try to get it done. It's going to be called ' Playstation'. I need
1 metal gear solid (HAS TO BE SNAKE). 1 Tekken ( Preferr to be Jin Kazama), 1 Megaman Character ( Any), 1 Resident Evil ( Prefer Chris or Jill , I might be doing Jill ). And Two FF characters. Two people to be in just regular clothes, if anyone is interested give me a IM on kitphiros or send me an email at Kitphiros@aol.com. I'd prefer that you all be someplace kinda close so we can get together at least two weeks before hand and practice.

Yea. Me and Rameana planned to lip-sync a scene from Inuyasha. A scene from Episode 99 (Sesshomaru & Koga: A Dangerous Encounter). We plan to do the scene where koga and inuyasha fight over the potato chips. I call it "The Potato Chip War". But we're still working it out.

If you hear things like this, and they are rumors, please keep them to yourself. Untill you know for 100% sure, do not post things like this please. (this is to keep everyone happy, and not worried about there being no Ohayocon06)From now on,please ask the administration at Ohayocon.com if you have any concerns, before posting things like this. Thankyou

My anime club and I are trying to raise money to go to Ohayocon so I'll probably be able to go (even though Im like 2 hours away from it). Right now, Im trying to find a cosplay group and figuring out how to learn how to make a cosplay outfit. X_X

I'm going to go, and I'm definitely cosplaying Megaman. Not sure of any other cosplays yet...

Me and my friends are going as a xenosaga group. I'm either going to be KOS-MOS or Shion.... Most likely shion ^^;

Gwydion
07-17-2005, 11:56 PM
I'll either be at Ohayocon or Sugoicon, but it depends on which works out best schedule wise for my anime club. Same goes for the costumes (we try to go as a group if possible). Which is sad because with all the Chrno Crusade people going, it'd be a perfect time to debut my Chrno! My sis and I have Chrno and Rosette costumes planned, only it's from when they first met rather than the typical red coat and blue dress.

Bobbi
07-18-2005, 08:50 PM

07-18-2005, 11:57 PM
!!!! Bobbi! I didn't know you wanted to do Cure White! I want to make Cure Black myself! You have to do her now, we can do them together! I've wanted someone to make Pretty Cure costumes with for awhile! BTW, are we still doing Xenosaga costumes too?

So yeah, I'll be there for the con. Ohayocon is always my favorite con!

Well if you post what you would like to know to some of us, I am sure you will get help. I know the first time I cosplayed I knew nothing, but I know a bit more, and Now I have sewing figured out. It is only Armour I am having trouble with, but people have helped me. I would be glad to help you if you need it. (Just pm me, im me, or post it some where in the general cosplay help.)

Well it is better to use time wisely, and plan out what you want to do, and start getting the materials for it. That way incase of problems, you have time to work throught them. ^_^

Oh my gosh, YES! I get into the laziness/procrastination trap so easily when a con is far off. If nothing else, at least try to have an idea for what you would like to do so you can look for sales on any fabrics you would need. ^_^

And you mentioned that your anime club was going, PrincessWolf? My club goes to one a year (may not make it to Ohayo this year, but it's still possible), but last year I was able to convince the people going that they should cosplay. Maybe some of them could be the cosplay group you're looking for (and then you'd have the potential for a large group cosplay; we had 7 last year).

There's a good chance I'll be going as Hakkai from Saiyuki and Hiro from Gravitation. My friends were all stoked about crossplaying this time, so I'm like "Well, ok. Count me in ^^" I'm gonna try and see if I can get my best friend to go as Gojyo. Either way, I'll end up being the one doing most of the work -_-; But, oh well. It'll be fun ^^

I think I have decided on what to go as at Ohayocon. Problem is, Im new to the sewing machine (is getting sick of making pillow cases).

08-04-2005, 09:49 AM
Geez... This Ohayocon is gonna be nuts!

I'm wanting to get Rugal from Capcom Vs. SNK done before then, but the custom suit that will not tear the crotch out when I do his jumping crescent kick special move will cost $1000 to produce... Maaaaybe next year kids...

Bringing back Auron and wanting LOTS of goofy pics, like me bench pressing a Yuna or get me breakdancing in costume or something. Also bringing a slightly improved Lord Caim from Drakengard. Still no Furiae :( Also bringing a friend to be Sorceress Edea and Leifang from Dead or Alive (black chinese dress).

I'm really excited too because KonekoMiyabi AND Loki-Sama are on staff! I know that's not open invitation for me to go crazy just because you've seen me around and hung out with Rameana. But it's good to know everyone is returning who was at Collasalcon.

There is still a lot of time for me to do something up for a group if someone needs an extra whoever for a group (some Chi's are wanting me to be the normal clothed guy from Chobits... wouldn't be hard, I'd just be in normal clothes surrounded by hotties). I guess just go to my profile page and e-mail me (PM's are hard for me to check) if you have any ideas for me. See you all there!

It would be funnier to bench press a Tidus. XD I'll be bringing my Summoner Yuna of course. So we can get pics. =3 Maybe Rameana will have Wakka finished by then.

Oh yes, Ohayo Con seems the place where we all seem to meet up again and just boogy down. Or something like that.

AND Loki? Wha?! I've been on staff two years now and I still am the defiant naughty one. Besides, Rameana's gonna be there and we always party together.

Miyabi-

I'm thinking I'll make Ohayocon a weekend of Inuyasha costumes for me this year. My Kouga costume needs another wearing, likely Friday, and I've been throwing around the idea of making a Hakudoushi costume for Saturday since the creepy little kid needs some loving and I've only found one other Hakudoushi cosplayer.

Although if this many people are planning on wearing Chrno Crusade costumes, maybe I'll have to drag that along and hopefully my box of doom if there's room for it in the car ^_^

-shakes fist- That...box.... :untrust:

LOL, Keeping a bit offtopic, my friend constructed the majority of the box out of Foam Core so it's really nice and light. Unfortunately, when I painted the piece that wasn't attached at the end, it sort of was misshappen and it didn't go together very well. I also stupidly kneeled on it and left a dent at the bottom. I think if I had the patience, wood would be the best option to go with.

Here's a photo I like with a good shot of the box and where it's caving in at the front, aside from the fact I'm NOT looking at the camera: http://www.dragonworldz.net/kariya/P8060007.jpg There aren't any straps on it because I'm inept... That's a work in progress ^_^

The only problem with it is it's almost 3 feet tall and a pain in the ass to transport, especially with a car full of other cosplayers and costumes.

EdNChrnoFanGurl
08-07-2005, 06:38 PM
I actually had to carry my and my friends stuff in it @_@ Towards the middle of IkasuCon, the bottom fell out XD So, there I was lugging my broken box around while trying to keep our stuff from falling out the bottom x_x

08-08-2005, 03:20 PM

Well! I guess on to staying on topic. I am willing to draw and make prints for all of you on here. Just PM me! And if you want to see some of my works, http://1509731.deviantart.com. I am not charging for pre-ordered prints. ^_^

Miyabi-
08-08-2005, 03:50 PM
Ha ha...I refused to make the box for my Chrono costume because I *knew* I'd get made into the pack mule if I did! ^_^

I'm reconsidering though....and if I did make it..mine's gonna be made out of foam too,so no one can put stuff in it! Ha ha!

Gwydion
08-08-2005, 09:21 PM
Ah, but the best way to get out of making the box for Chrno without cutting corners is making the outfit he wears in the flashback episode (the one with the brown torn cloak), lol.

But I understand the whole being the one carrying everyone's stuff thing. I've had 2 costumes so far with bags, meaning I had to carry everyone's stuff. They did come in handy though, I must admit. But anyway, if I can go to Ohayo this year, I'm looking forward to seeing all the Chrno Crusade cosplay!

Whee, you gotta love it when plans change COMPLETELY! I'll still be at Ohayocon with my crew in tow, but we've had to revamp our costume ideas completely. So now our core group is doing human Mario enemies, and another secret cosplay ^_^ Oh, and Emy and I will once again be joining forces with Ameria, Ra-chan and Zoroko in new versions of our One Piece costumes (Alabasta (sp?) or Skiepea).

I can't wait to see everyone, and hey, we're getting a table again this year since we missed last year.

Um... myself and two other friends will probably be going to Ohayocon next year. As of now, I'm planning three costumes for the convention... ><

Right now, I'm planning as going as Uchiha Itachi (Akatsuki version), a random Ichiraku girl, and the punk versions of some of our (my group of friends) favorite Naruto characters.

I believe my two other friends are going as Orochimaru and Sasuke... either way, I can't wait!!

Iris13
08-12-2005, 12:57 PM

Neee.. prereg ^^ Luckily, I just got a bunch of cash to spend. I was hoping on using more for fabric, but...30 bucks outta 90 isn't bad.
.... I just realized most of my money is used for anime and con related items. I need a job >>;

I'm hoping to be able to go...though I'm not sure what I'll bring. I'm planning a ton of cosplays for the following year, so there will be something..if I go.
More than likely it'll be crossplay, and if people want it, some Digimon Frontier crossplay (Koji and Kouichi)

Of course, I'll have a job by then, so that might help convince the 'rents.

08-28-2005, 11:17 AM
I think I've decided what I'm going to be wearing for Ohayocon.

Rabi~en~Rose from DiGi Charat
Cure White from Pretty Cure season 1
Summoner Yuna from FFX

And if I have time to finish it after Cure White, Rosebride Utena... which will probably be my Saturday afternoon/evening costume. But otherwise, it'll be Cure White.

On another note. My friends and I are going to cosplay DearS. I was going to go as Miu, but now I think I might be going as the cat biter. (Cant think of her name right now niii.) lol. But I am not sure which one yet. that and I think that will probally be my only new cospla outfit. but plans can change.

We also have a Guilty Gear group going (I'm going as Bridget *LOL*), we have a Testament, Faust, Zappa, and Ky.

You'll be okay with just one; it's not like everyone HAS to bring 16549897 different costumes; some people have made more than one. All the ones I'm working on are pretty simple, so that's why there's more than a few..

If you need any help with Bankotsu, there's an inuyasha discussion thread in anime & manga costumes. ^.^

Friday: Moegi from Naruto (only if friends doing Konohamaru and Udon)

Saturday: Robin Sena from Witch Hunter Robin (I'll be doing cosplay judging, so won't be running around so much)

Sunday: Nothing, unless for some strange reason I have my Lolita outfit done, which I doubt.

...oh, and I'll have my beloved with me...and if babysitting falls through...my son as well...he'll be 5 by then.

Man, I really wanted to do Azmaria too, but tons of people are doing her and I just have such a huge cosplay list already. But she's so CUTE! I wanna be cute.

Miyabi-
10-18-2005, 05:28 PM
You'd be a great Azmaria too Trae! You're the perfect height and size for her and everything! (I think you're a little shorter than me right? If that's the case it'd be even awesomer since Azmaria is a little smaller than Chrno)

*chants* Dooo it! Doo it! Doo it! ^_^

Ohhhh!! I need to know what to wear to the rave. Because I'm a rave animal. Got to boogaloo with a female Alcuard. Oh! It was glorious. I was the tost of the town with my rave balls. But seriously, what do I wear? So many costumes!

Traeonna
10-18-2005, 09:25 PM
Yeah, I'm shorter than you. So many cosplay ideas...so little time! Tee hee...and it would be so fun running around with you. My cosplay plate is pretty full...I have Sakura to work on, then Optimism, then my ghetto Gojyo along with my son's Goku. Eeek! Why can't I just have money coming out of my ears and tons of time to make costumes?!

DuelinDaniel,
Rave balls? O_o That just sounds wrong....LOL

I've wanted to make Utena's duelist uniform for a million years but I definately don't have the time...lol

And no worries Trae...I don't officially retire costumes so I can always wear Chrno if you ever decide to do Azmaria. ^_^

If you finish Archer I promise I'll have High Wizard ready for some RO fun. ^_^ Other than HW (f), I'm not sure what other costumes I'll bring with me/try to get finished in time, since trunk space is limited. Must figure out which costume to compete in at my first U.S. convention. ^_^

I'll definitely have Archer finished for RO fun, even if I look silly wearing it. =_=;; I don't think I'll compete in anything though.

I was only planning on bringing Archer, but then I saw the Makai Kingdom designs and decided that professor would fit wonderfully into a small suitcase, and has no props. (....yet. I want to make a bazooka for it eventually). I'll try to have 2 new costumes for my first U.S. con!

I'm going to Ohayocon! Now that I live in Ohio XD. Me and my friend Heather are doing outfits from the same anime for each day ^^. I'm doing Sugar from Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar, Super Sailor Neptune, and fixing my movie Utena. My other friend is doing Anthy *coughIconnedherintoitcough* so we're hoping to get a little group together for that ^^.

And don't worry, PrincessWolf, I went to both Kunicon and Anime Central as Utena without an Anthy XD.

Well I was thinking when the con gets closer to try and set up a photoshhot. ^_^
Ooo! I look forward to seeing you as Mint!
Thanks, right now I have to find a wig, that will work for her hair. Or I will have to use the evil blue hair spray stuff.

On another note, PrincessWolf, I am sure people will know who you are.

OMG Trae! You have to do my hair for my Loli outfit. I would love you forever! I want mine JUST like yours!

It actually doesn't take me too long. I use a Caruso Hairsetter (a damn old one too...I need to get replacements for some of the curlers now...eek). I put my hair in pony tails, then section off small clumps for the curls. I hold the curler horizontally and wrap the hair, slightly over lapping, from one end to the other. They stay in only as long as until I run out of curlers...then I start carefully un spooling them (because those Nellie Olsen curls come undone so easily). Then spray the hell out of them!

I've heard of people doing the same thing with a curling iron (which I can do, but it's tricky for me since I don't own one, so I don't use them often) and also have heard people doing them with rags (or pin curl style). I think it all depends on length of hair. For me, the curls are harder when my hair was really long...but now that it's just below my shoulders, I can get them pretty bouncy.

I really do want a wig (because I want fringe/bangs), but for now...it works. I'm working on a fringe/bang hairpiece made of my own hair, but I haven't had time to work on it as of late...so wig...sounds nice if I could find one I like.

Hey, guess what? Change of plans, I'm coming home for the holidays, and since Ohayocon's so early in the year I can probably stick around for the con and then fly back to Japan. So it looks like I may be there after all ^_^
(NOTE: I said "may", it's all still pretty tentative, but I'd really like to go.)

Costume-wise, I've been dying to wear Lulu again (Acen was my last con before I came to Japan, so I only got to wear it that one time). I'm also working on an Ulala costume from Space Channel 5 Part 2, so I'll have that with me, and I heart my Anko costume so I'll probably bring that too (it went over REALLY well with my junior high kids on Halloween).

It'll be good to see you if I make it.

My biggest obstacle right now is finding a decently priced ticket. All these travel agencies have really good prices advertised on their sites, and then when I contact them they're all telling me, "oh, we don't have any seats available for that. But we can get you one for $400 more...." -_-;

I am also cosplaying Hemino from Pretear, and Lucy form Elfen Lied. (Although for Lucy, I dont know whic outfit to do.)

I'd love to get a big group together from PoT. -shot- Yeah. >>;

I would love to do Dream Live First versions. If not...then... Just a big group for a photoshoot. We might have our Naruto group and or InuYasha group there. Depends really on everyone's schedule. Heeeey. We might do up Suikoden or Gravitation as well.

I bought my airline tickets today, so it's confirmed that I will be attending Ohayocon 2006, which will be my 5th year in a row. :) I shall be getting there after 10:00am, try to get my room at the Drury Inn, and then pre-reg. for the con and then start taking pictures. (hopefully before 11:00am)

I'll be walking around the convention center, food court, and Hyatt throughout the weekend, so please come say hello if you see me, and if you're in costume I'll gladly take your picture. (I usually ask first but it helps if people come up and say hi.) I won't be in costume, so look for me wearing normal clothes. I will be bringing my laptop with me, and depending if the Drury Inn has wi-fi, I might be able to u/l some pictures from each day, depending on HOW busy it'll be throughout the day/evening.

Good luck working on those costumes, and I'll see you after Christmas & New Year's at Ohayocon! :skidude2:

I'll try to post an update here about the forums when I get back from the meeting on Sunday in Columbus (or maybe Saturday night if I'm able to make that meeting). There's been some issues with the server that Ohayocon is currently using for their website. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

I haven't even had a chance to really think about what I'll be cosplaying at Ohayocon. I don't think I'll have time for anything new, so I'll be doing Moegi on Friday (which will be my first time at Ohaycon...I debuted it at Otakon this year) and Robin on Saturday (because she's comfortable and warm).

Me and my cosplay group really want to go to Ohayocon as it is close to us (we are in the Detroit area), but without being able to access the page, none of us have any information. We are also wanting to compete in the masq and I know some cons want you to prereg online for that.... is it still open to entries?

If anybody has any answers I could really use some of them, and thanks in advance.

Traeonna
11-14-2005, 04:47 PM
What kind of information are you looking for? Like price and such? I can give you as much information as I have.

As to cosplay, well there are many of us judges here. Marsie is our fearless leader, I'm the head craftsmanship judge, and Miyabi is a craftsmanship judge. I'm sure between the three of us we can answer any cosplay questions.

There will be a registration at the convention for craftsmanship and performance. You can only compete in one or the other because we want as many people as possible to be able to participate in some kind of cosplay competition. Are you looking into competing in craftsmanship or performance?

Anyhow, if you post specific questions, we'll do our best to answer them!

Hey, do you all happen to hang out with the Detroit Anime (http://animedetroit.com/) group at all? I have many friends from there.

Mimette
11-14-2005, 05:35 PM
I really need dates, prices, locations and things of the such. Is preregistration for the con already over?

As far as competing, I am pretty sure that the group wants to do a performance of some type but to date we haven't worked out exactly what we are going to do yet and as much as I want to go on stage again I am not going to go in unprepared and they all agree that that would be bad. If it comes down to it, we would be going for craftsmanship only, but most likely not.

And no, I am not part of the DetroitAnime group and to be honest I have never even heart of them o_0; Guess I am a bit out of the loop....

(Document Last Updated 10.25.05 - Subject To Changes)

COSPLAY INFORMATION

Competition Categories

Craftsmanship is a contest where participants are judged on craftsmanship (design, construction, execution, and general presentation of costume).

Performance is a contest where participants are judged on performance (artistic presentation, technical skills, charisma, and overall performance).

Walk-ons prohibited as registration IS required. Craftsmanship is judged BEFORE the Masquerade. Performance is judged AT the Masquerade. Awards presented (trophies and certificates) at Masquerade.

Skill Levels

Skill level ultimately is left up to the participant. Below are skill level guidelines. We ask participants to please be honest when choosing skill level.

Junior: Any participant 13 years old or under of any skill level.
Novice: Any participant 14 years old or older that has not won any awards at a convention or has made 3 costumes or less.
Journeyman: Any participant 14 years old or older that has won up to 3 awards at a convention or has made 5 costumes or less.
Master: Any participant 14 years old or older that has won up to 5 awards at a convention or has made 6 costumes or more.

Awards won at events do not count. Only awards at conventions will be counted. Participants may compete up (Junior can compete as Novice), but cannot compete down (Novice 14+ cannot compete as Junior).

Registration & Meetings

Craftsmanship and Performance participants MUST register Saturday morning at 10 AM. You will be asked to fill out a Cosplay Registration/Judging Form. At this time, you will sign up for a judging time if competing in Craftsmanship or approval/rehearsal time for Performance.

Participants may only compete in one category (craftsmanship or performance) and one skill level ({0-13 yrs} Junior, {14+} Novice, Journeyman, Master).

Craftsmanship participants MUST show up at scheduled judging time. Performance participants MUST show up at scheduled approval/rehearsal time. Participants who do not show up will be disqualified from competition. If you are a part of a group, every member of the group MUST be present. Participants will also need to be on time for the roll call/line up for Masquerade and MUST be stage-ready at that time. Participants failing to do so will be disqualified from competition.

Judging

Craftsmanship and Performance Judging is points based. Judging has three areas: Technical, Artistry, and Person Opinion. There is a maximum of 5 points in each category (1=Poor, 2=Fair, 3=Good, 4=Great, 5=Excellent), a maximum of 15 per judge. Total from all judges will be used to determine winner. Craftsmanship awards are based on the design, construction, execution, and general presentation of your costume. Performance awards are based on artistic presentation, technical skills, charisma, and overall performance.

Awards

Best Of Show Craftsmanship (1 award total out of all participants {individual or group} and skill levels)
Best Craftsmanship (1 award for each skill level)
Honorable Mention - Craftsmanship (at the discretion of judges)

Best Of Show Craftsmanship (1 award total out of all participants {individual or group} and skill levels)

Basic Requirements


All participants must be attending members of convention and will need to provide their badge at registration.
Costumes must be street-legal. If it would get you arrested for indecent exposure on the streets of Columbus, it is not acceptable here, either. Nudity (in whole or in part) is subject to immediate disqualification. This is an all-ages convention; keep that in mind.
Please don't wear or use any messy substances that might ruin the costume of another contestant. If you are wearing body paint or make-up, please make sure it will not come off in casual contact with others.
Costumes must be self-contained. Connections to electrical sockets will not be available.
All costumes must be based on Japanese anime (e.g. Trigun), Japanese manga (e.g. Sanctuary), a Japanese-origin anime-style video game (e.g. Final Fantasy)., J-pop/J-rock, Japanese Live Action Films, or Japanese Street Fashion (e.g. Sweet Lolita). Generally, if the series and/or character originated anywhere else than Japan, it doesn't qualify (e.g. Star Wars). Obviously, Japanese adaptations of foreign material that are nevertheless extremely Japanese are permitted - for example we would not exclude Marie Antoinette (Rose of Versailles), the Count of Monte Cristo (Gankutsuou), or Utena (Revolutionary Girl Utena) for being adapted from French works. When in doubt, contact the Cosplay Coordinator.

Exception 1: If your performance is based on a Japanese series, which includes western characters but focuses on the Japanese ones, you may petition the Cosplay Coordinator for an exception (e.g. Kingdom Hearts skit featuring Sora, Riku, Kairi and Ansem and wanted to have Donald and Goofy as well, would probably be approved).
Exception 2: If your costume/performance is from a Chinese or Korean manga (Kill Me, Kiss Me), film (Red Shoes), etc., you may petition the Cosplay Coordinator for an exception.



Craftsmanship Requirements


You may not wear a costume that has previously won any awards at any convention. This allows people who have not won before a chance at winning an award.
Costumes purchased or rented from a costume shop, designer direct, eBay, Yahoo Auctions, Cospa, or any other store-bought costumes are prohibited and will negate your eligibility (or your group’s eligibility, even if you are the only one in the group with a disqualified costume).

Exception 1: The costume is a “found item” costume, which were constructed by collecting various pieces from stores and putting them together (with or without sewing) to make a costume.
Exception 2: The costume’s creator is present (the creator wins, not the model).
Exception 3: Junior competitors (although we ask that the person who constructed the costume be present if possible).
Exception 4: If competing as a group and the creator is part of the group, then they will win the award. These rules do not apply to participants competing in performance category.

You MUST have adequate references. If you do not, you cannot be judged properly on craftsmanship. Participants with no references will receive a 0 for Technical automatically when being judged.


Performance Requirements


You may not use a performance at that has previously won any awards at any convention. This allows people who have not won before a chance at winning an award.
The maximum number of members for your group is 6 people. If you have more than 6 members, you may petition Cosplay Director to allow the group to compete. If more than the approved number of contestants appears on stage, the group will be disqualified.
We will allow parents to be backstage with participants aged 14 & under. This is not required, just recommended (and encouraged).
Nothing is allowed that would be banned in a PG13-rated film. Actions, dress, or mannerisms that would not be allowed on a public street or thoroughfare must be avoided. Specifically, the following must be avoided: explicit sexual gestures, nudity, and explicit swearing. Violating these rules will disqualify you and possibly result in your being escorted off the premises. This is an all-ages event, so your actions and speech must reflect that.
Music and/or prerecorded dialogue will be required at your appointed time during the Rehearsal. We ONLY accept CDs. Label all CDs with your name and registration number so it can be returned to you afterwards. We will NOT queue a CD; you must have music and/or prerecorded dialogue ready to go as soon as we put the CD in (this means YOU edit the music and/or prerecorded dialogue BEFORE the convention and put it on a CD). Your audio file must be 3 minutes exactly or under. Please note there are no exceptions to the 3 minute rule. If your audio file is longer than 3 minutes, we will trim to 3 minutes (even if it cuts out some of your performance).
You must bring your own gofers to help move stuff quickly on and off stage. You have 30 seconds to set up and 30 seconds to break down. Do not leave anything on the stage that cannot be picked up your gofers in a few seconds - this includes confetti and rose petals.
Maximum permitted length of a performance is 3 minutes. A flag will be raised 30 seconds before the end of your time to indicate to finish performance. The flag will be raised again at 3 minutes and you must stop the performance, even if you are not done. If you do not, you will be disqualified.
Nothing the staff feels that may pose a danger to people or the stage area will be allowed. All weapons must be cleared by Security and peace bonded. For more information, please read our Weapons Policy.
No fire, flash powder, lasers, explosives or open flame of any kind will be allowed. Electronic flashes will be permitted provided that you notify the Cosplay Coordinator in advance, and it must be announced in your MC introduction to protect those who may be affected by the flashing lights. Strobe lights are not permitted.
There will be several live microphones onstage for you to use, but please remember that you will still need to project your voice in order to be heard by the back row. This is a large ballroom area.
We do not allow jumping off the stage, nor do we allow entering or exiting the stage from any area that has not been approved by the Cosplay Coordinator.

(Document Last Updated 10.25.05 - Subject To Changes)

Weapons & Costume Policy

Ohayocon PROHIBITS the following:


Weapons prohibited under Ohio law. All federal, state, and city statues are in full effect
All gun replicas must have an orange cap at the nozzle per law
Real firearms (working, disabled, or otherwise) (e.g. rifles, shotguns, hand guns, BB guns, etc.) and ammunition of any and all sorts
Projectile weapons (pellet guns, airsoft rifles, disc guns, cap guns, silly string, etc.)
Water pistols or other liquid "weapons"
Live steel. This includes any metal weapon that can be sharpened to an edge (e.g. practice swords {including katana and other martial arts style swords (e.g. bokken), even if they can be peace bound into a scabbard). Also included are metal blades (e.g. knives, daggers, sword canes, stilettos, daggers, switchblades, etc.), axes and hatchets, and sharp costume accessories (e.g. sharp wings, armor, spikes, etc.)
Laser pointers, laser-aiming devices, or similar devices
Any other potentially harmful weapon/prop as determined by Ohayocon Security or Ohayocon Cosplay Staff


Ohayocon ALLOWS the following:

Prop Weapons, replicas made of wood, foam, or other craft materials provided said items are not sharp and do not pose a danger to others
Staves, bats, gourds, and other cosplay props


Costume considerations:

Must not extend 1' to the right, left, front, or back of the person UNLESS they can be folded up or otherwise contained while navigating hallways. This applies to wings, tails, weapons/props, etc.
Must not have potentially dangerous spikes or other sharp edges that could injure other con guests.
Must be suitable for all audiences as Ohayocon is a family-friendly event and there will be people of all ages present throughout the convention. If you would be stopped on the street for indecency, then it is most likely not appropriate for this con. If you are found wearing a costume that may be prone to malfunctions (i.e. potentially showing body parts not deemed suitable for public display), you will be asked to prove to Ohayocon Staff that such malfunctions will not happen. If Ohayocon Staff feels that there is a potential for a malfunction, you will be asked to correct the issue or be asked to leave the convention until the issue can be corrected or another costume is worn.


For the safety of all please observe the following:

If you have a potential weapon or potentially dangerous prop, please bring it to the attention of Ohayocon Security upon arriving at the convention. If approved by Ohayocon Security the item will be marked and you will be permitted to carry the item. If not approved, you will be asked to remove it from the convention premises. Attendees should take such items immediately to their hotel room or off convention property.

Ohayocon Security is not able to pre-approve weapons and props before the convention. A determination can only be made after actually handling and inspecting the object in question.

All confiscated items will be marked with the attendee’s name and badge number and held in Convention Operations (Con Ops) until the closing of Ohayocon on Sunday afternoon where they may be claimed by presenting identification such as the Ohayocon badge containing the number they are stored under.

Staves, bats, gourds, and other oversized props may not be wielded or brandished in a reckless manner that could cause harm. “Brandishing” is the handling of any item for the purpose of real or implied threat, or any act that may cause anyone to believe that the intent was there, real or implied. The intent is irrelevant and will be treated as assault upon another person. If you are caught using any item in such a manner it will be confiscated. Ohayocon Security will deal with repeated offenses accordingly, up to and including ejection from the convention without refund.

Also please be courteous of other attendees and ensure your props to not impede the flow of traffic in the hallways, panel rooms, or dealer’s room. Please move out of the flow of traffic when posing for pictures. Please do not wave props around or point them at people.

All Cosplay Contest participants planning to use weapons onstage MUST present their weapons for inspection and demonstrate their intended use for the Cosplay Staff at the rehearsal. Any unauthorized weapons or actions involving weapons, whether onstage or backstage, will result in disqualification and any further actions deemed necessary by the Ohayocon Cosplay Staff or Ohayocon Security.

Weapons purchased in the Dealer’s Room, whether real or replica, must be peace bonded, kept wrapped, and immediately removed from the premises.

And no, I am not part of the DetroitAnime group and to be honest I have never even heart of them o_0; Guess I am a bit out of the loop....

Over on Midwest Meets Far East (http://mmfe.traeonna.com/forum/)we have a list of local anime groups and events in the area (of NW OH and SE MI). Does your group meet regularly or is it just like an unofficial group that just happens to go to cons and stuff together?

I have a few questions further.

I recently took my costume to Youmacon this past weekend and I won a judges award, however there will be my other group members in similar costumes with me at Ohayocon would that disqualify me from competition as mine was the only one that won anything at Youmacon?

Our staffs are made with a 4 foot copper pipe as a base, would that be allowed?

And about our category, would we be a novice or journeyman as I have won an award and there are currently 4 of us in the group (possibly a fifth coming onboard)?

I have so many questions ;_;

As for us, we would be considered an unofficial group I guess. We are all close friends that are going to be doing this as a group, so not sure were we stand in someting like that.

Judge's Award for Craftsmanship? If yes, then you cannot compete for Craftsmanship at Ohayocon. However, you are still free to compete in the Performance category as long as your performance has not won any awards at any past conventions.

Our staffs are made with a 4 foot copper pipe as a base, would that be allowed?

It's hard to tell without actually seeing the weapon. We can't "pre-approve" anything. I'll let Marsie take this one. I'd say they might be ok so long as they aren't brandished or carried in such a way that people could accidentially get hit by them, but I'm not the big boss, so I can't make the call on that one.

And about our category, would we be a novice or journeyman as I have won an award and there are currently 4 of us in the group (possibly a fifth coming onboard)?

It depends...are you doing Craftsmanship or Performance? If Craftsmanship and you are competing as a group, then everyone will have to compete up because you are a Journeyman. With Performance, really, it should be the same, but if the majority are Novice, then I'd say you could do Novice. The skill levels aren't set in stone, however, we ask everyone to compete fairly and access their group fairly for competition. It's really case per case and ultimately it's up to you (unless the judges honestly think that there's no way you should be in one skill level or another).

I have so many questions ;_;

That's ok, that's what we're here for. It's really no bother at all. I'd rather people ask questions than to assume and be pissed off later when they find out what they assumed was wrong. So ask away...please! It also helps us improve our process and documentation.

The reason I mentioned the whole group thing was that I try to list all NW OH and SE MI groups on MMFE...as well as any events, conventions, screenings, etc. We've got a pretty active group down here as well in BG that has a lot of fun stuff going on and they totally welcome the public. I'm doing a Cosplay Construction workshop this weekend for them...you should come check it out. :) They should be other Detroiters there.

Alright, well I am glad to hear that we can at least perform. I am a bit bummed that I can't get their costumes in for judging as a whole group but maybe I could bring those three in to have theirs judged if we don't get a skit together in time.

As for the staffs, they aren't brandished at all. They are mainly just to complete the costume and for posing in pictures but I will make sure that they clear security just to be sure.

Thank you so much. I will let my other group members know and hopefully will see you guys at Ohayocon.

The reason why we limited to one category or the other (Craftsmanship vs Performance) is because we have a HUGE amount of people interested and in order to try and allow everyone to compete, we've had to try and find the most fair way of doing things and this is what we've come up with. Who knows, it may change next year, we'll just have to see how it goes. There's only so much time in a day where we can judge Craftsmanship...it's about 5 minutes per person. Then Performances are about the same. You can only fit so many minutes into the hours we have to get stuff done before the Masq. It's a bummer, I know, but we are trying our best to make the most amount of people happy. We could have just said there's 25 Performances and 50 Craftsmanship and that's it...first come first served...but that's hardly fair. Blah, I won't continue babbling...we've just been working really hard and it bums me out when people are bummed out.

As for the staffs, they aren't brandished at all. They are mainly just to complete the costume and for posing in pictures but I will make sure that they clear security just to be sure.

Security is the way to go. :) If for some crazy reason they are not allowed into the con in general, you can always petition for them to be used only for Craftsmanship judging or Performance judging. Marsie has the final say.

It's sad, but if people weren't so damn immature in the past, we wouldn't have to have all these supremely strict rules. It only takes a few to ruin it for everyone else. Ugh!

Thank you so much. I will let my other group members know and hopefully will see you guys at Ohayocon.

No problem. I can't wait to see all ya'll then...you're all so close, I'm suprised we haven't bumped into each other.

Mimette
11-14-2005, 07:22 PM
Well one last question. I will be wearing my costume that won in the masq and you said that that was ok if it wasn't graded on craftsmanship. If one of the other girls wore hers for craftsmanship would she still be allowed in the group for performance?

I am guessing probably not, but doesn't hurt to ask as I am a bit new to this and having won an award at Youmacon kinda throws things a bit out of line as far as the group had planned....

Also another question about cosplay for Ohayo Con, does anyone know if we can sign up for cosplay online?

Traeonna
11-14-2005, 10:15 PM
Performance Awards and Craftsmanship Awards are completely separate. Just because you won a Craftsmanship Award for a costume does not disqualify you from wearing that costume in a Performance piece. Craftsmanship is Craftsmanship and Performance is Performance...one does not have any bearing on the other. They are two completely different competitions.

Basically, if you competed in Craftsmanship and won an award for that costume in a Craftsmanship competition, then you cannot compete that same costume in Craftsmanship. Same with a Performance piece...if you did the piece before and won an award, you cannot compete it again. Just because you won a Craftsmanship award for a costume, does not mean you can't wear it during a Performance...because Performance is judged on Performance...not Craftsmanship.

Does that all make sense?

those one day prices seem off, their listing on anime-cons.com says that a 3-day at door is $45, but doesn't list one day rates, and the main site is offline. but it wouldn't make sense that someone could buy three separate one day passes for cheaper than a three day at door pass.

Aki, I said I was probally wrong on the prices, and umm....The 3 day could have only been 40, but I think the pre reg price was somewhere around the 3 day at the door price in the past. ^_^ (This years pre reg price...to last years at the door price.)

I don't know how the masquerade works, but I pay prefrom "Drive Me The Mercury" Eah, it is kind up in the air right now, I may be sick of it by then. -_-
